Hi VK,

With the minimal layout is there a limit to the number of items on the default homepage layout (3 box width)? If not is it based on infinite scroll or paged?

Many thanks.

visualkicks

Hey there,

There is no limit to items (each portfolio page has it’s own custom posts per page amount). It’s not infinite scroll though, only paged.

Just out of interest this is the sort of masonry portfolio that would look amazing as a feature add on to dimple: http://demo.ourtuts.com/sympathique/portfolio-grid/

Sorry bud 2 more questions for you, I know your busy

1) I know you showed me how to remove my homepage gaps (left/right) on the portfolio using this:

.portfolio-wrap .col1 { padding: 0 1%; }

how do I remove the gap top and bottom (where the title and description go), so in essence I want the portfolio to be a grid with no borders all images are touching each other.

2) Is there any way after the above to get the title and description to appear in the rollover?

Thanks Rich

visualkicks

Ahh i see, the margins are created by the inner container of .portfolio-wrap. So this will do the trick.

.portfolio-3 .portfolio-item { margin-top: 0px; padding-top: 0px; }

Hmm, thats a different kettle of fish. The theme-functions.php in the /theme/functions folder containers a function called vk_image() which calls vk_hover(). All single based image outputs go through this. I can’t say that I recommend changing it. But if you wanna try – http://snippi.com/s/69i78qr

The new item thats getting made can pretty much do all of the stuff you’re asking for via the theme customiser :D. But it wasn’t without some difficulty and bulk changed to the above functions.

Best Regards Jesse

ps. I know I got some emails sitting in the inbox, ill get to them in a bit.

pps. 1.6 is out now if you want to re-download.

richpearsonwd

What sort of theme/design is the new item? – looking forward to see ing it – ETA?

richpearsonwd

The above works a treat bud, I have added some extra css to style it as well, now the age old question how would you pull the description opener in to the box as well please?

visualkicks

Ofcourse :) ahhh lets see – this http://snippi.com/s/uv99bxb

richpearsonwd

Brilliant ok and finally which css declarion do I add to add styles to to style this please (oh yes and is it easy to include portfolio tags/categories as well?)

And lastly I need the footer copyright section to be moved up in to my main footer file and centred all, the copyright and menu can go under each other and be centred, or alternatively the copyright can stay where it is but I will need to adjust padding so it all closes together with icons etc above.

Cheers Rich

This is easily the BEST theme I’ve seen! I’m gonna buy it soon! Keep up with the good work!

visualkicks

Thanks for the kind words! :) – There will be an update out in a few hours, be sure to recheck the demo sites then to see the new features.

You are welcome Jesse! Really outstanding work on this theme. One question.. any intention to make it Woocommerce ready one day?

Default-user

Maybe could be a premium plugin that you can sell “Visualkicks – Woocommerce” I would buy several copies in a heartbeat :)

visualkicks

One day indeed :) There are lots of plans for new plugins. We will be getting our site up and running with support forums + plugin / theme pages etc after our next theme is out. So when all that is done, we do have a list of things to implement and that is one of them… so don’t hold your breath ha :)

Great job on the update mate :-) – bit confused on the footer file now LOL lots of changes

richpearsonwd

I agree with ignaziolaci have to say there are only really 3 or 4 theme creators that produce amazing themes and have the support to go with it – are your def one of them keep up the great work :-)

visualkicks

Ahh, I forgot to mention the footer in the other comment. footer-sidebar.php contains the places you would have edited. The old footer.php file was just getting way to ‘tall’.

I may as well answer your other comments here as well.

Would something like this be what you are after? Or is it different? http://d.pr/i/Y0L7 – let me know and ill put a snippi up.

The ETA on the new item isn’t for at least another 3 weeks. Don’t want to give too much away but it’s really simple & endlessly customisable (portfolio theme). I saw that grid comment below as well. It probably wont be added into dimple any time soon, but will get a look in for the new theme.

Thanks a ton for the support :D, it’s always good to hear Im doing things the right way ha!

richpearsonwd

On the screen-grab you sent above yes the copyright is what I was after but I need my footer section above to also be centred as I had them before I updated the theme :-)

richpearsonwd

sent you an email detailing everything I need bud, nothing major just little tweaks i’m struggling to figure out, and yes totally you are doing way above the support level moat of us expect :-)

visualkicks

Sounds good, Im going to mark all of the comments are read now and consolidate it all in an email.

I can’t find the way to set the order of the panels shown in the home page. There’s any way to do so? I’ve tried out by publish date, but had no results. Great job!

visualkicks

Hi Donjimenez thanks for the purchase!

You can sort the panels by going to “Panels > Sort” – http://d.pr/i/ILTt (drag n drop)

THIS THEME IS THE BEST! Except for one thing… How can i turn down the speed of the slider on the full page panels (my home page in this case) www.vanguardsolutions.org

visualkicks

You can change the speed of the sliders via the theme customiser in the sliders tab.

Hi,

I have the standard version installed but I really would like to have the minimalist version. How do I do this?

Thank you:)

visualkicks

Hi, there technically is no set version of the theme. If you go to Test drive on the minimal demo site you will be able to see the exact setting that the minimal theme is using. You can just use the same settings on you our owns site.

Would be nice if the portfolio items could have filtering with some sort of transition (like this http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold/homepage/home-v5/) Just an idea because seems a little choppy right now! AMAZING THEME!

visualkicks

Hey there, the transitions were taken out by design, but you can put them back in by going to the “Theme Settings” in the dashboard and placing the below code in the “Custom CSS” area.

Hi. Question. I know how to create panels. But i don’t know how to assign them to pages.

Default-user

Ok. don’t worry. Found it. lovin it.

visualkicks

Panels are listed only on pages that are using the template “Home”. You’ll see there is a few options once you change the page template.

Installed the demo xml and the Hold Fast Exhibition from the demo as well as the Hypocrisy & Narcissism are set up different. Can you point me to some documents on how to make them appear this way? Thank you for the great theme!

visualkicks

Hey there, unfortunately the export tool for Wordpress does NOT include post formats for custom post types. So if you you just change the post format on those portfolio items to “gallery” they should come through looking fine.

Sorry to be a pain. Is there a way to integrate woo-commerce to the theme?

visualkicks

The theme doesn’t support woo-commerce. Meaning, you can install it but it doesn’t come with woo-commerce styling. You will need to do that yourself. Woo-commerce generally can be installed on any theme though.

sorry for the newb questions, but can you quickly outline how to update the theme to the latest version? wordpress is prompting me to update the theme.

thanks, dave

visualkicks

No problem, you will need access to your site via FTP. You would have probably used an FTP program to install Wordpress?

1) Download the latest version of the theme. 2) Unzip the theme to your desktop (or wherever) 3) Open your FTP program (I use filezilla – it’s free & simple) 4) Navigate to /wp-content/themes/ 5) Drag and drop the entire “dimple” folder from your desktop into the themes folder and override the old folder. That’s it.

You can obviously install the theme via zip file again but your sidebars will need their widgets put back in place. You wont lose any posts or metadata etc.

Hi,

I’m building a portfolio website using Dimple and I’m loving the theme. There’s one thing I can’t seem to figure out: How do I make the panels fade over each other like in the Dimple Standard preview? I mean the little fade/parallax animation that happens when I scroll from one panel to the next.

Thanks!

Nik

visualkicks

Hey Nik,

When editing a panel look for the checkbox “panel fade on scroll”. It’s below the background color overlay.

Also, make sure you’re using 1.6 (the latest version) cause it was implemented only 2 days ago.

Best Regards Jesse

Working like a charm now. Thanks!

Hi,

Is there anything specific we need to do to use the fontawesome icons? I used the link to the fontawesome site and tried using the names there, i.e. “fa-video-camera” but it doesn’t show up. I noticed that somethings work when using the “icon-moon”. Is there a reason for this?

Thanks!

visualkicks

Oh I just went to the link, looks like they updated the icons about 18 hours ago! I was thinking to myself “fa-video” that doesn’t sound right. I’ll update the site to use the latest version of icons. They used to all start with “icon-something”. Im assuming they still work like that as changing the entire font-awesome icon shortlist would break ‘the internet’.

ps. they posted the link to 3.2 on their twitter. http://fontawesome.io/3.2.1/icons/

hey Jesse! I’m building my portfolio with this great theme and is a blast! Question for you.. I’d like to set a custom background color for each project.. any suggestions for me? Maybe this could be a future feature ;) Basically FROM THIS http://i.imgur.com/iofRQKr.jpg TO THIS http://i.imgur.com/JF4QJRz.png

Thank you!

visualkicks

Hey! Im happy to hear you’re enjoying it!

Hmmm, I see. If I were to implement this I wouldn’t feel right with just adding background colors only. It would have to have the same options as the title / media (colors, image, parallax, overlay, stretch etc). Technically not that hard to achieve just a little time consuming.

I’ll look at adding it to 1.7. There needs to be 48 hours in a day :D

Hi there,

Is there a way to add additional fields to the contact form? Like custom subject and telephone number? Thanks!

visualkicks

Hi Joseison, unfortunately that will have to be done by editing the contact.php and send.php directly. I would recommend getting in touch with a web developer to do this.

Best Regards Jesse
