Hi there! Beautiful theme guys! Before to buy it tho I wiould like to ask 3 things: 1 – Can I have a video on the homepage instead of the carousel? 2 – Is it possible to change the size and the frame of the image thumbs, I personally don’t like the white border 3 – In the content page on large browser windows, is it possible to have the title and description below or above the images instead of on the right side?

Many thanks in advance.

BrutalDesign

Hi!

-The slider is not mandatory, you can choose to display a video in your home page content instead. -This would require a minor CSS modification -yes, same as above: need a lil CSS snippet

I hope it will help

hi there again! I have purchased the theme. I love it! I just would like to know if there is any supported plugin to add the shop section with ecommerce. Can Woocommerce be added?

BrutalDesign

Hey, I am glad you like my theme ;) I didn’t tested the compatibility with WooCommerce.

But WooCommerce seems to be highliy customizable.

The use of WooCommerce with ergo shouldn’t be problem.

Is the viewport can be modify to show the standard menu and footer on iPad / tablet ? We can do this without any problem, but i just want to ask you to be sure. Sorry for bad English, I speak French.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

It is doable but it would require some CSS modifications.

Hi guys

Great theme and looking forward to buying it for my next project.

I need to start straight away so please answer these few questions:

Does it have an admin menu? Does it include page templates? Does the masonry gallery have an easy to use menu? And lastly (not as important) does it include a custom page builder?

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

If you mean a theme options panel, yes. There is several page templates, yes. The mansonry gallery is a simple Wordpress gallery using the “Masonry” template. No page builder.

I hope it will help ;)

Thanks guys. I’ll buy it

Hello. I’m considering buying your theme, but am wondering what kind of options there are regarding the ‘homescreen’ area. I notice in the demo you placed some text and a link button, so i’m wondering what else can be added. For example…a music player plugin? Is there flexibility in placing it’s exact location? Can you add multiple items? I noticed your ‘Live’ theme has this ability, I’m wondering if I can do the same with ‘Ergo’? If not, does ‘Live’ have the ability to make the ‘home’ section fullscreen like ‘Ergo’?

One more question…. Is it possible to make multiple ‘home-style’ sections? I’d like to just have these fullscreen sections repeat one after another as you scroll down the page.

I realize that’s a lot. So thanks in advance for your help.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The home page header shows a full window feature content slider. You can choose to feature any posts/works or create slides with links to external URLs. Of course, you can choose to don’t use this slider and paste anything else in your home page content. For exemple, display two columns with a player and a video.

You can’t set multiple full window sliders.

I hope it will help.

Hello, Two questions:

1. How do you remove or modify the section that reads, “Like what we do? Feel free to get in touch! (Contact button)”, that shows on all the portfolio pages?

2. What mod is needed to remove the translucent background from the menu area?

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

In the theme options -> General tab -> Bottom area

You can set a different bottom area content for each page as well (Custom box below the text editor)

I hope it will help

Default-user

Thanks. How about my second question?

2. What mod is needed to remove the translucent background from the menu area?

I’m interested in purchasing this theme. Is it possible to show the latest blog posts on the home screen? I would like to highlight my blog more.

thanks! Carla

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can choose to display your latest blog posts on your home page, in wordpress admin settings ->reading -> lastest posts as home page

I hope it will help

happytapper

Super! Thanks!

happytapper

I’m sorry, I just want to display a few along with the other home page items. I don’t want to display them INSTEAD. Is this possible?

happytapper

To clarify some more – I want to keep the home page as it is and ADD in the 3 latest blog posts. Is this possible?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

This is not possible at the moment, but adding an alternative home page template with the last posts is a good idea for a future update

Hello, I have a third party lightbox, how do I deactivate the lightbox bundled with this theme? They are both loading when the image is clicked.

Thanks, beautiful theme.

BrutalDesign

Hi,

To disable the swipebox behavior, remove the row 141 in js/jquery.custom.js
$(".swipebox").swipebox();

I hope it will help

Worked great, thanks a lot. Love the theme, it’s much more organized and streamlined than my previous one. 5 star rating from me.

Hi, I am loving this theme and I’m interested in using it for a client, but I have a question about the Search functionality… How come the search element, doesn’t search for the words displayed in the ‘Galleries > Masonry’ ? I was searching for the name ‘Shen Chanjuan #2’ (the first image in the Masonry gallery but it couldn’t find it. Is there a way to make the tags or names posted in the galleries searchable?

Looking forward to your response! Thanks! Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The theme uses the wordpress gallery and the default search functionality. There is probably some plugin or php functions that will allow you to do that

http://brimosoft.nl/2013/04/03/search-for-attachments/ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search-everything/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

If you wan to add some php functions to the theme, it is recommended to use a child theme or add you own functions in includes/theme-functions.php file

I hope it will help

Bonjour, great looking theme, am considering a purchase however, can you upload self-hosted video?

BrutalDesign

Hi,

The theme doesn’t handle self hosted video. However you will probably find a plugin out there that will allow you to do that.

hello, I just bought the theme, it’s wonderful!

I have one question:

When I see your theme’s demo, at the top right part there is a message “TRY THE SKIN SWITCHER”. I’d like to put some messages like this in some points of my site with a “Close” button that lets you hide the notices.

I know this isn’t a question directly related to your theme, but I’d appreciate if you tell me a Wordpress (or non Wordpress) plugin, JQ script or any other way that does something like this.

Thank you very much in advance and congratulations for this great theme!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Thanx for your support! I am glad you like my theme.

Maybe this plugin will suit to your needs: http://wpwolf.com/plugin/wolf-message-bar/

Hello, I will use this for sure, it’s very useful to show the website users hot news.

But what i want to do is to show multiple “post it” in different parts of the website, wich will contain some useful notices or advices.

I’ve seen it somewhere (I don’t remember where), and i don’t know if it exist any plugin for that, or any plugin that would do that with some minor css/php modifications

Do you know any?

What do you use for the skin changer top right message?

Anyway, thank you for your fast reply!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Unfortunately, I couldn’t help you with that. I am not aware of such plugin.

The skin switcher is a custom plugin that I created for demo purpose. The “Try the skin switcher” message is a simple png image in fixed position.

all right, no worries!

Can one have different backgrounds according to pages? If not, I may use the plugin:”Background Per Page” or an other one?

Thank you

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can’t set a different background for each page. howevern the use of this plugin shouldn’t be a problem.

But you will have to add this code in order to remove the blog posts background color on the blog page.

.type-post:nth-child(even) {
    background: none!important;
}

.type-post:nth-child(odd) {
    background: none!important;
}

SO AWESOME. The spacing is not quite right here with the boxed version activated: http://demo.brutaldesign.com/ergo/masonry/

I see this on a few other pages as well (boxed version only). Can these be fixed?

AMAZING!!! Ready to buy!

BrutalDesign

Hi,

Thanks for pointing this out. Just submitted the 1.2.1 version with a few styling fixes with the “wrapped” version. If you check the demo again, be sure to refresh your page to re-load the scripts and styles.

Cheers.

Hi !

Is it possible to translate the TYPES? Because with qtranslate the translation is not made :(

thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

I don’t know this plugin. Unfortunately I can’t help you with that.

However, you can change the taxonomy menu name and slug in functions.php at row 107 & 112

'singular' => 'Type',
/*
* You can change the slug to suit to your needs.
* You will have to refresh your permalink structure (settings -> permalinks)
*/
'slug' => 'work-type'

I hope it will help

Hi !

In pages with the modele “portfolio” is it possible to call only the works types rather than all the works?

Thanks

BrutalDesign

Hi,

You can create portfolio category menu items. In the menu panel, click on “screen options” (top right) select the “Type” checkbox.

You will be able to choose portfolio categories/types as menu items.

I hope it will help

Yes, thanks, but when I make it, we have no link towards the translation, nor the options, as the options of page such as the packgrounds various :( I am going to continue to look…
