Thank you Charlie, yes, decided to try new horizons:))) Not that it sells but to work with C5 is pretty nice process. Hope it will become more popular in time, to my opinion it seems be very comfortable and simple in use cms for end user.

It def is – we build a number of client sites in it and I imagine as it becomes more creative and recognized here so will its popularity grow. For now WP is just the most recognized I guess.

The revolution has to begins somewhere so keep the great work up!

Congrats Virtuti, great addition to the section, wonderful color scheme.
And “Der Golem” is a very nice name by the way ;)

Wish you the best with sales.

Kind Regards,

Thank you so much Bedros, you are always so attentive and friendly, thank you! And yes, the title came on mind because it is one of my favorite legends, very odd legend… which might be not a legend at all but pure truth…

Awesome Template Virtuti

How was it to use the concrete5 cms? I was thinking to try it but was not sure if it was for me.

Cheers

Hello Lester, thank you! C5 is not difficult, the hardest part for me personally was an user interface, coding part went much easier. I am sure you will cope with it, no reason you will not.

Hi

Can I add an extra page (Gallery) and use some of C5 image galleries add-on

Regards Flemming

virtuti

Hello! You can add another page (simple.php page template I think–since you need something different from portfolio.php, right?) but I have no idea about this add-on, never tried it. Thank you for your interest!

I am having an issue where the top navigation menu is not showing up in IE7 and the footer does not display correctly. Please advise asap.

virtuti

Sorry, IE7 is out of list of compatible browsers. Thank you!

Hello, oh, regrettably, I work on Mac and “borrow” Windows from my husband (when I need to check how my themes work on Windows). His Explorer version is 11. So I even have no any access to this “dinosaurs”. Try to ask on Envato Studio, maybe somebody there has possibility to access IE7 + knows how to tailor modern website to IE7. Thank you!

We are using your Der Golem theme, Concrete5 version 5.6.3.1 on Mac OS 10.6.8

Right up front – I am an inexperienced user! Here are 2 problems I am experiencing:

Responsiveness with 2 column layout – about page template

We have a problem with the responsiveness of a 2 column layout using the about page template. We have created a 2 column layout in the main section. When having an image block in the left column, and a content box in the right column, the copy in the content column reduces to a long skinny column which makes it unreadable in mobile format. I have been adding my content and pictures using the “add to any content” block. Should I be using the “add to article block?

It seems like using the layout/columns feature is an unusable option in order to be responsive, unless you use extremely minimal copy. Should the content column be jumping below the photo? Is it possible that the padding we are using is affecting what the 2 column layout should be doing when reduced to mobile size? Or should we just not use any columns in the layout? I have copied the urls of 2 pages that are having this problem, although it is throughout the site:

http://historicgrandinvillage.com/index.php/meet-our-angel/ http://historicgrandinvillage.com/index.php/welcome-historic-grandin-village/

Cannot see Der Golem auto-nav in blocks

We have been unable to see your auto-nav in blocks, even after continually putting it in your theme blocks section in Filezilla. The concrete5 auto-nav takes over and the drop-down menus are not visible. If we put a logo in the left of the nav bar per your layout it knocks the nav bar down when reduced to ipad size or smaller.

While we were working on the site, we selected the home page as our maintenance page using a maintenance editor plug-in. While working we could occasionally view the drop-down menu. Only occasionally. When we made the site live NONE of the drop-down menus are viewable, and the nav bar items drop down and can’t be seen. We are using the default attributes in the page types in dashboard.

We would really appreciate help with these issues as the site has gone live.

Hello, I see that my name is deleted and Kessler Designed is claimed as the author. I also see that markup modified. You should ask Kessler Design to fix all problems.

We don’t claim to the the author, at all! We just don’t want your advertising to come up when we post to a blog or facebook. We operate as Kessler Design, and as such, we use Concrete5 themes to design websites and we are upfront with our clients about that. It is confusing if your name and advertisement shows when we post to facebook – when we are making a post as, say, Historic Grandin Village, and the name Der Golem comes up with an advertising plug. That is not professional, and I don’t believe that it is standard practice. We don’t care at all if it is in a place that our clients wouldn’t see it. I don’t think that is too much to ask. I am also upfront in that we are new to this, and we thought that customizing a theme was an ok thing to do. It is ALSO not too much to ask for the navigation to work, and the responsiveness of the blocks to be correct. If we have done something to cause these problems then we want to know what we have done wrong. Yes, we have gone in and changed some colors, etc. We exchanged an email in which you told me to go ahead and customize the home page per the layouts that I sent to you. We don’t claim at all to know everything about what we are doing, and I did not mean to offend, but to use standard business practices. We may have to now purchase a different theme since we cannot get you to explain how your theme is supposed to work, and I am very sorry for that, because we love everything else about the theme and your work.

It seems I have done something wrong during my attempt to add your theme to my concrete site. I think I followed the directions pretty well, but when I go to install the theme, yours is not listed. Can you help please? I probably messed something up somewhere. Thank you.

Never mind, I figured out my mistake..Thanks for a great Theme!

virtuti

Ah, thank you, I was going to ask you to describe in details what went wrong but got your second message and I see that everything is ok for now. Thanks again!

Hi, I just purchased and installed the theme and am not seeing the background photos show up. I added them to the Images folder using the same naming convention and replacing the samples in the following folder: theme-files>theme>your theme>images.

Is this the correct location and do you have any insight into why they might not be showing up. The other images like square.png are showing up just fine but not the background images.

virtuti

Hello, yes, location is correct. Did you change images names?

Default-user
chaille Purchased

I replaced the images using the same names and image size. It did something. The background is a light grey now, but no images.

virtuti

Did you upload images to server?

Default-user
chaille Purchased

Yes, I uploaded the packages and blocks independently. Loaded the ‘your theme’ folder (with images included) to /themes and then also to /concrete/themes. That is when the background shifted to grey but no images displayed.

Then I attempted loading the images bg_mini thru bg4_mini to an additional image folder at /concrete/images. Nothing changed.

I also checked the stylesheet to verify the naming matched.

virtuti
What is the URL of the image in your site? When you check it in Inspect Element it should be identical to: header-content { height: 100%; width: 100%; background: transparent url(http://demo.virtuti.info/demonstrations/dergolem/themes/dergolem/images/bg_mini.jpg) top center fixed; background-repeat: no-repeat;

apart domain name and folder title (if you gave it your own title).
