Hi !

I’ve built my website with your theme ergo but unfortunetaly it doesn’t work on Mozilla Firefox and Safari and think many other.

It only work on Chrome. Do you have an issue ?

Many thanks !

For some reason my Portfolio page doesn’t have the animation when I click between types. It just creates a page with the types on it, as with a normal wordpress gallery. Please advise.

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Do you have a recent version of the theme? The filter animation has been added in version 1.3

How can I add several images on the homepage slider with each it’s own little textbox?

Thnx

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The home page slides are featured post, work or page. Please check the doc for more details.

Demoing the theme results in “top menu” items not showing up correctly (white background with no visible text) when going to different sections. Is this an issue with the theme? Also, is demo import available so it looks just like demo? Thanks.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

I’m not sure to understand. Can you show me a screenshot or give me the URL of your site?

You will find the demo.xml file in the theme package.

Hi !

I have a little problem with the portfolio. Because I’m not really fluent in english, I let you the url to chek up : http://test-mgp.fr/mhsurfbo/videos/

Some videos working fine but many other are not detected.

Thanks in advance !

BrutalDesign

Hi,

It seems that the youtube video doesn’t work. Probably because you use a “no-cookie” URL

It should work if you simply paste the youtube video URL

I hope it will help

Default-user

Thanks a lot ! It seems to work fine ! Just a little problem, the videos are not align like you see : http://test-mgp.fr/mhsurfbo/videos/

I changed the portfolio template just to get the header image like the default template but I don’t think is that because, even if I re-upload the original template I always have this lag.

Many many thanks for your help !

P.S : Really sorry for my english speaking

Hi,

All thumbnails should have a square format like your first image. If you switched from another theme, you will have to re upload your pics or, more simple, you can use a plugin such as “regenerate thumbnails” to re-crop your image automatically http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

I hope it will help

Default-user

It still doesn’t work … http://test-mgp.fr/mhsurfbo/videos/ Feeling lost ! I tried everything :/

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Be sure that all your post have the “video” type selected below in the options below your text editor

Hello. I really like your themes and I’m thinking of buying either Ergo or Steelpress. Could you please answer a couple of questions for me please.

1. Are there many font choices? Does it have google fonts? 2. Can I make the homepage a single fullscreen image (as opposed to a slider) 3. Can I make the homepage ONLY one page Without the ability to scroll down (in the demo homepage you slide down to features and recent work) 4. Does Ergo have an unlimited color picker? 5. I understand the steelpress has googlefonts and color picker SO .. If I were to choose STEELPRESS theme, could I have a fullscreen single static image on the homepage? 6. In Ergo, could I remove the top bar with social media icons. 7. Do Ergo and Steelpress have the same/similar admin panel.

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

1/ This theme doesn’t includes a goolge font manager. However, there is a google font helper file, to allow you to enqueue google font easily 2/Yes, by simply setting one image/featured post in the slider 3/ Not without customization, but shouldn’t be too hard
.home.is_featured_slider{
    overflow:hidden
}

.home.is_featured_slider #main,
.home.is_featured_slider #bottom-holder,
.home.is_featured_slider #sidebar-footer,
.home.is_featured_slider #colophon,
#scroll-down{
    display:none!important
}

4/ most of the main appareance can be edited through the theme options (colorpickers, background uploaders)

5/ This would require some customization. But advanced modifications/customizations are beyond the scope of the support service.

6/ There is no top bar with icons in ergo. If you mean for steelpress, yes. This can be done in the theme options (check the style switcher in the demo)

7/ There is more theme styling options in steelpress.

I hope it will help

Can the main home page images slide automatically? Also up to how many can be displayed on the home page?

Thx

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can set the slider to autoplay in the theme options if you have the latest version (1.3.7)

You can set as many images as you want put be advised that it will be slow to load if you have too many

Hi,

http://new.virginthoughts.com We have 2 slider in home page which are not a part of the Project for example 1. “Virgin Thoughts | Branding” 2. “Offshore” http://new.virginthoughts.com/case-studies/ If you see in Case Studies these 2 Sliders are displaying as a project which are not a project its just an introduction which we want it in just in home page slider not as a project.

Do we have an option to remove these two images from the portfolio and just keep on the home slider.?

Please Help!!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can create a page that is not displayed in the menu and set it as featured post. They will be sued as slide and not shown in your portfolio

I hope it will help (It is covered in the doc I think)

it seems you can choose most screen options to appear on a gallery page or not but the ‘views’ and ‘likes’ icon and text, can this be taken off anywhere?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The views and like are only available in the work posts. Adding this feature eslwhere would require some modifications in the templates.. Maybe a 3rd party plugin can do the job

Until recently, I was able to feature embedded content from mixcloud the same way audio from soundcloud is featured. Now I am unable to find a way to display any of the embedded mixcloud players on the portfolio pages. I have the mp3 versions of all content I want to use, but if at all possible, I’d like to take advantage of the mixcloud features.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Could you give me an URL/embed code that I can use to make some test? Could you submit a ticket on the forum? (first submit a ticket, then add a comment with you code)

I will see what I can do

Hi!

Is there a way to make the header less transparent?

Thanks.

BrutalDesign

Hi

You can add this CSS snippet in your theme options custom CSS box (style tab)

.js .home.is_featured_slider #hello{
  background: rgba( 255,255,255,0.8 );

}

.js .home.is_featured_slider #hello a{
  color:#333;
}

I hope it will help

Good morning, I am interested in buying your theme but I have several questions.   In Our Work, I’ve seen that show all projects together by default. Can I put that only appear the labels of Audio or branding, for example? or I have multiple Portfolios? That is, a portfolio that is called porfolio1 with some pictures and other porfolio2 with other pictures?

Thanks you so much

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can create menu items for each portfolio cateogory if you want. So you will have a different page for each category. But you can’t create multiple portfolios.

I hope it will help

Hello again!

Just wondering if there was a quick way to remove the transparency box under the text that appears when you create a Featured image background?

Hope that makes sense.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Do you mean the home full window slider caption? Maybe a screenshot would help me here…

Cheers!

johnball

Thanks for the response!

Yes, the slider caption.

LOVE the theme but having some trouble with CSS – nothing I’ve tried has worked so quick questions for you:

1. How can I increase the width of the post a.k.a. blog pages, both in list and single post form? I’d like it to be somewhere in between where it is at currently and the full-width page (homepage width).

2. How can I adjust the opacity/transparency of menu bar? As it scrolls down I’d like it to change from clear to semi-opaque not fully opaque as it currently does.

3. Is it possible to have the logo background change color as it scrolls down as well? I have a white logo on the transparent menu but as it scrolls it disappears because it is white on white. I’d like the background of the logo to change to black once the menu turns opaque white.

4. Is it possible to add a secondary navigation under the primary navigation?

THANK YOU so much in advance! Would really appreciate the help!

Hi just trying to figure out a previous solution posted.

Could you confirm what is the ‘theme options custom CSS box’ or the file name and directory for the css file?

Thanks

1/ First add this CSS rule to remove the icons (theme options custom CSS box)

.format-audio .entry-content:before, .format-video .entry-content:before, .format-gallery .entry-content:before, .format-image .entry-thumbnail:before { display: none!important; } Then to copy and paste this function at the end of includes/theme-functions.php

http://snippi.com/s/ab83xi7 2/ The icons are displayed using an icon font. It tricky to change them. You can hide them by adding this CSS rule

work-grid i{display:none}

3/ The category displayed on the portfolio gird is not clickable

BrutalDesign

In ergo admin menu -> theme options
