a great template! It is possible, to show more than one youtube-video. it would be great, if it possible to take for example 3 videos and the player plays all of them. because: if you place one video, after a short time it will be boring. Please check: www.seventears.ch

No, sorry. :)

Hi,

I’ve change blog thumbnail to full width of post, i.e. to 700px (in functions.css). Image is automatically resized when then visited via smartphone, portrait and landscape (see www.primewalk.dk/?p=813) Also works on tablet (iPad), however only in landscape mode. When in portrait mode, the image does not resize down (to 560px) but stays wide – and then goes below the right sidebar. I’ve looked in your css files to find where to resize the image (when between 768 and 959px) but just can’t find it. Can you please advice where / how to, thanks.

Also, is it possible for height to be auto-adjusted, when width is reduced, so image is not “squeezed” – but maintains original (nicer) proportions? How to, please?

Finally, thanks for a 5-star theme …

FinalDestiny

Add this to style.css:

img {
height: auto !important;
}

Thanks a lot – sorted out the image height. Great. But how to resize post-image when screen width is between 768 and 959px?

FinalDestiny

Hm, this code should do it:

img {
max-width: 100%;
height: auto !important;
}

Your theme is realy great! Congrats! But I have problems with homepage, like it said in the FAQs, I canĀ“t make it like in your demo. I did what you said, but still not working. Any help? Thanks!

Hey, I just downloaded the theme and it’s awesome! I was wondering: 1) Is there any way to add a button after the slogan_text on the homepage?

2) Get the slogan_text on the homepage to appear on the homepage fully! (It keeps on cutting off words and doesn’t display most of the time after a breakline)

3) Make the slogan_text slightly smaller

Thanks in advance!

FinalDestiny

1) not without a good deal of customization, you’ll need to edit home.php

2)What’s your URL?

3) URL?

FinalDestiny

What do you mean? Are you reffering to the sample data? Or to the demo? All the shortcodes are documented in the documentation

Hi FinalDestiny

Firstly congratulation on your theme. It looks great and good work!

However I need help with the following:

1. I am also having issues with removing the dust particles from the homepage background and have added #loadingImg {display: none !important;} to style.css 2. I would also like to have the animated verticle on left menu fully animated but not have it hide at all (not hidden at all). Have it stay there for full res screens. No on hover hide. 3. The footer bar seems to appear half way up the screen on the Ipad portrait resolution.

Would it be possible to get help with this? Kind Regards Tim

FinalDestiny

1) Add this to style.css:

#sparkles {
display: None;
}

2) What’s your url?

3) Screeshot please

timothypbrand

I have managed to take the script out of the functions.php and seems ok unless you think it would be best to add the css instead?. Do you have any pointers for no 2. with making the animated veritcle menu not hide and stay? My client would prefer that the menu was styled as a solid bar instead of uneven blocks. They just don’t like the fact that it hides???

FinalDestiny

I need a URL to take a look on it.

FinalDestiny

set the menu to full animated menu, I need to take a look at the code

timothypbrand

Have you had a chance to look at the code yet for the menu Point 2.

FinalDestiny

As I said, set the menu to full animated menu on your website so I can check the code live

timothypbrand

Done….will wait for your reply..thanks for the speedy response.

FinalDestiny

Add this to style.css:

#header.animatedfull {
left: 0 !important;
}
timothypbrand

Working Perfectly….Thanks for your help

HI! I need more space for a bigger logo. How can I do it? Thanks!

FinalDestiny

Hello. Edit this in css/style.css:

body #logo
{
    background:url(../images/logo_nobg.png) no-repeat center center;
    width:220px;
    height:75px;
    margin-top:40px;
    background-color:rgba(0,0,0,0.5);  /* RGBA Stands for RED/GREEN/BLUE/ALHPA */
}

edit the 220px value

Pre-Purchase: I am considering this theme or alternatively the Keres theme with similarities: http://themeforest.net/item/keres-fullscreen-photography-theme/3960542?sso?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=peerapong

- Any change you would consider to add the: Kenburns Slideshow too?

- Is it easily translated (both English and Danish needed)?

- Any change you might add more Gallery options?

- Does it have unlimited color settings? (your options menu say so, but not your “sales text”)

- Does the newsletter form etc. only work with MailChimp?

Thanks in advance! :-)

FinalDestiny

1) KB slideshow is not integrated by default, but you should be able to find plugins on the internet for it

2) Yes, it’s translatable via the po edit files

3) More gallery options? What do you mean? There are quite some page templates for sliders and gallery layouts

4) Just light / dark, if you want any other color, you need to modify the css

5) YEs, only with mailchimp because WP doesn’t have a built-in solution for it.

Default-user

Thank you for your reply!

Does it have the needed plugin etc. for the language selection (flags) to work? If not, can you provide the code / help to get this working?

I just noticed there were no selections/options inside the Gallery page, but might be able do some creative together with the sliders.

Is it fairly easy to modify css for the colors? It might be ok, but I know she might prefer some purple/pink elements.

Thanks!

FinalDestiny

For the language selection, I only coded the flags, for the integration of them with a plugin like WPML or qTranslate it requires some extra customization, in one of the future versions I’ll check those plugins and integrate(qTranslate probably), but for now there’s no built-in integration.

As for the css, it’s as easy as on any other theme, it requires coding/css skills, the colors are all in css/template.css, you can modify all there, the only thing is that, as I said, it requires some css/coding skills, there’s no user interface or something.

Default-user

Can you at least help to get the translation / flags work as intended with your theme please?

Without this we cannot really use this theme as intended unfortunately.

I would recommend WPML as this seem to be in the lead now (also have support for you and the customer to solve theme compatibility). Qtranslate tend to course more problems and pollution to databases etc. and might break the site when WP gets updates etc.

You can check WPML Certification program, which should be interesting to you :-) : http://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/

If it is just regular color codes inside the css it should be no problem if needed for us :-)

Just a bit more concerned getting the translation/flags to work with your theme – but hopefully we can solve it together :-)

FinalDestiny

I know about their program, but it will take probably days or weeks before I get a reply from them so I can’t guarantee compatibility and integration with WPML for now, sorry.

FinalDestiny

It might work fine, I can’t know that, but the theme was coded according to the latest wp standards

Default-user

So what do you suggest? – To find another theme instead? I really like your work, but unfortunately the site do need to be both English and Danish.

We can buy the WPML licence and do the po translations etc., but of course need to be sure the flags and/or browser language detection works as intented somehow.

FinalDestiny

I’ll try to see if I can get a WPML copy and check it on my local website and I’ll let you know if it works fine.

Default-user

Perfect, thanks! – Also pretty sure Multilingual ready will improve your sales further anyway ;-)

FinalDestiny

I sent them a request for WPML, if they’ll send it quick enough, I’ll let you know if it’s fully working or not.

Hi again, Congrats on making the theme fully responsive!

Any chance for a Scroller-style slider as I asked for a couple of weeks ago? Something like this: http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/visible-nearby/

It will also be great for mobile :)

Thanks!

FinalDestiny

I bookmarked it and will probably add it, right now I’m releasing a new template and after that, I’ll update all the themes

Default-user

great news :)

Please also note that the current ‘grid gallery slider’ doesn’t work very well (or at all..) on mobile, so I’m really hoping for the scroller slider that will hopefully support mobile… (royal-slider works extremely well on mobile)

FinalDestiny

Ok, I’ll take a look on it

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Another question please… I noticed in one of your screenshots that the navigation menu has an option for “vertical on left”: http://prntscr.com/u5igm The demo site only shows vertical/horizontal/full animated (by the way, I think the full animated menu is by far the better option..), does it mean that there’s also an option to set the menu as “vertical on RIGHT” ? If it’s possible to make the menu float to the right (and the social buttons to the left of course) that would be great!

another direction-language related question: You have fake flag icons in the demo site.. Is there a way to actually make a multi-language site with this theme?

Thanks

FinalDestiny

No, no vertical on right menu available. As for flags, I don’t offer such integration by default, just the look.

Hi, Great theme by the way. It appears that the construction page’s countdown bar isn’t working. I used the numerical form that it asked for and it displays with “Na” or “aN” in each box.

Can you tell me how to fix this?

Thank you!

FinalDestiny

make sure you used correct values inside it.

Regarding the “Scroller-style slider”, another nice alternative will be the “Image Flow” style, like the one that can be found here: http://themes.themegoods.com/keres_wp/?page_id=459

I believe it should be fairly possible because this style can also be found in many more themes, like the “Core Minimalist” theme..

Thanks!

FinalDestiny

Ok, I bookmarked it and will think about it :)

Thanks for the suggestion

I guess all the “fullscreen” images are automatically scaled depending on screen resolution, but what is the recommended resolution when uploading them for fully width etc? – Will be quite large files I guess :S

FinalDestiny

yes, probably bigger than 1024×7-800-900px height

how can i hide the breadcrumbs?

FinalDestiny

Go to includes/breadcrumbs.php and remove:

<?php if(!is_home() && !is_front_page() ) { ?>

i have installed buddytheme but it is not fully compatible with ECKO, are there any suggestions to get this working?

This theme is not a buddypress theme so it requires quite a lot of customization work to make it buddypress compatible and make the layout look ekho-like

Love this theme. It’s amazing.

I do have a question regarding the contact page template. When I select this layout for my contact page, it completely removes the background image that I am using throughout the rest of the website. The URL to my background image is in the correct box when I go to the edit screen for this page, but it doesn’t show up. As soon as I switch the layout, the background image reappears. Any ideas of why it would do this? Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks! And nice work on the theme. Amazing.

FinalDestiny

The contact page should have a map on the background, that’s how it was coded :)

Default-user

Oh thats sweet. That looks amazing. Thanks!

I have another question. I am using the [tabs] feature and I am trying to add content inside the different tabs but it won’t let me customize anything. For example, I can’t add a link inside the tabs content. When I add the code for a link inside the tabs content, it removes all the content from that tab. This makes it hard to customize anything on the inside of the tabs content. Is there a way to customize this content or does it all have to be plain text?

Thanks again!

FinalDestiny

check the quotes(’ and “), if you use double quotes for the shortcodes attributes, use single quotes ’ for the html tags attributes so they’ll not conflict with each other
