Really like the look of your theme but before I buy I wanted to ask a couple of questions:
1) Can you increase the size of the youtube video pop up box?
2) Can I add Blip.tv videos?
3) Does the theme come with Dummy content or are you able to supply me with some like the demo site if I buy it?
I’m glad you like the theme Here are my answers:
1. The lightbox plugin (PrettyPhoto) has an option to change the default size, so this can be changed in its initialization code (one line change) – we can provide the instructions on our support site.
2. It depends on how you would like to add them. As much as I know the lightbox plugin doesn’t support blip.tv , so you would have to implement it into the content of the item. Blip.tv provides an embed code that you can just paste in the content and then you just have to set the item open its content page in order to show the video.
3. Yes, it does. Just please keep in mind that instead of the demo images, grey dummy images will be uploaded, as the ones we use on the demo are copyrighted and we are not allowed to redistribute them.

One more pre-purchase question abour photos resolution.
What is the optimal photos width in the galleries for the Retina screens?
I mean for the new ipad and especially and most important for the new macbook pro Retina.
The images we use on the demo are no more than 1000px in size and they look very well on a retina display. However, if you need maximum quality, you can upload bigger images, but generally I would recommend that you always optimize the images for web before uploading them for a faster image load.
Hi there, interested in this theme does it support batch upload of photos?
Thank you for the interest
The theme supports bulk image upload within every single item – for example, on the main demo page, once you create the “Child’s play” item, you can add all the images to the item (that are opened in a slider or lightbox) in bulk.
Also does it allow for client locked gallery’s?
You can create a password protected quick gallery – you can see an example here (use “pexeto” as password). You can have this page in a sidebar and full-width (no sidebar) layout.
Ok thanks, I’ve read that most photographers use prophoto as most themes don’t batch upload…
Does this theme support older browsers?
The theme supports all the major browsers – Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer (version 8 and newer). If you are interested in a specific version of a browser – you can just test the demo with it
and what about selling your work through the site, is that possible yeah? Via a plugin?
Yes, you can use a plugin. One of the theme’s users said he used the theme with the eShop plugin and everything has been working well with it. You can also try the other popular e-commerce plugins, such as WP e-commerce.
First of all your theme is beautiful, I love the way it effortlessly slides through the image content… I Just have one question before purchasing which is essential to me as an artist. Is there an option to provide a short description of each gallery selection (I often have concepts I like to include next to my projects)? or can the title bar at the bottom be used for this? Your other theme Photolux had a slider gallery that seems to have an area for project descriptions.
This is my only concern with the theme before purchasing, hopefully it is doable!
Thanks for your kind words – I’m glad you like the theme
If you are referring to the gallery slider section – you can use the bottom section to add a description. As you can see on this page, the bottom section contains the title of the item and the description of the image. If you have some more content to show, this section will expand to allocate all the text inside.
Congrats on making such a wonderful theme! Very fantastic : )
My only question before I purchase is is it possible to have all the content in the main gallery be blog posts, with the featured images on the posts being displayed?
I know I can probably do this with the “page links to” plugin, but am assuming it would still say “gallery” and the # of photos. A menu setting that lets me add post categories as the content to display seems like a perfect solution, which you may have done already : )
Thanks in advance and best of luck!
Thanks, I’m glad you like the theme
By default the theme uses a custom post type “portfolio” which has its separate section and is not related with the blog posts. So, in your case, it would depend on what your intention is. If you just want to convert your existing blog posts and add them automatically to the gallery, you can use a post type converter plugin which should do this very quickly. Otherwise, if you want to use both the blog section and the gallery and you want as soon as you post something in the blog, to be added in the gallery, then you can either search for a plugin that may automatically create a copy of a post but just in a portfolio custom post type or you can create the gallery post manually and link it to the blog post (the gallery provides an option to set a custom link to a post). I hope this is clear enough
wow, very nice theme. I have recommended to a family member.
I wasn’t really looking for a theme for myself, but this one is so nice I may have to get it!
quick presales question, if you dont mind. I really like the password protect for galleries. I’d like to do an online photo album for family pictures.
Is there any way to create a password for all galleries? I wouldn’t want my family to use a password for each gallery.
It this feature isn’t in your theme, do you have any plugin recommend or other way that I can achieve this? I just dont want all my items out there for world to see, but I love how this theme presents videos and photos!
thanks in advance for your time.
I’m glad you like the theme
By default you can create a password protected quick gallery – you can see an example here (use “pexeto” as password) – it can be in a sidebar and full-width (no sidebar) layout. If you want to have one global password for each gallery you create, you can just set the same password everywhere.
a lot of things does not work on your theme…i can’t see the preview of an image, i can’t change logo…
I have already posted a reply on the ticket you have opened on our support site, so you can check it there.
P.S. There aren’t any known issues with the theme, so the problems you experience are most likely related with the server/installation configurations.
Is it possible to ‘trail’ the theme for a some period. Say a week or so?
ThemeForest doesn’t provide such kind of option for the themes that are sold here.
I couldn’t go to the support-page
I’ve created a lightbox gallery for one of my portfolios, setting on the homepage (no problem) but… when I want to go on the main page, all the images have been doubled…
Here is the page : http://www.frederiquegame.fr/portfolio/exposition-photos/
Thanks a lot, I don’t understand…
I can see that you have already opened a ticket on the support site, so I assume you were able to access the system, right? (your ticket will be replied within the regular support time)
yes ! thanks ! problem to open a profile on the website but resolved yet
I purchased, installed, and activated the theme, but it results in a blank white page. I’m pretty sure my site’s running in a PHP4 .x environment. Will the theme not work with PHP4 ? I’m also running Wordpress MU.
We have a dedicated support system where all the Pexeto items support is handled, so we kindly ask you to use our support system here:
to post your support questions. Thank you
P.S. Both WordPress and the theme require PHP5 .
I have tried to log into your support site, but it will not allow me to login. I have set up an account, but it says that my password is invalid. When I try to retrieve it, it tells me there is no associated address. When I tried to create the account again, it says there is already an account with that address. I tried to create a new account with a different email and password, but it will not allow me to register. Ant assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I have manually reset your password and sent it to the email address you got registered with – I hope everything will be okay now.
Just got a fail to deliver email back – it seems that you have entered an non existing email address. Can you send me a private message using our profile contact form and will send you the password back in a reply.
I have sent a private message via your contact page.
I sent your password back – noticed that you have done a small typo in your email address when you got registered and that’s why you didn’t receive the password reset email.
I’ve purchase this theme yesterday and it’s so cool
So, i have only one question :
- Is it possible to remove “preview circles images” and the “next project circle” in Fullscreen slider ? I don’t want to go to a project to an other, and preview circles are funny but i just want to disable them (i try to change in JS file but doesn’t work ^^)
P.S. There is an option included to remove the preview circles in the Expression Options -> Slider Settings -> Gallery Slider section.
any news about a new release of this theme?
There’s quite a few things I believe you can fix (such as prettyphoto script on iPhones not working well), adding other socials such as 500px.com for photographers, and other stuff which I guess you got as a feedback from those nearly 1000 customers like me
You support is simply the best on Envato.
Just please, remember a nice theme update could be much more appreciated…
Just my 2 cents.
We are planning to start working on the next update very soon. Meanwhile, regarding the things you mentioned – I have my version of the PrettyPhoto script optimized for iphone, so in case I haven’t sent it to you, you can open a ticket on the support site and I will provide it. And regarding the icons – you can refer to this article we have created.
1. I am curious if it is possible to make the thumbnails bigger for each album so they almost touch sides?
2. I am curious if it is possible to add any font to this site?
3. I am curious if it is possible to add a “sharing” button for each photo to social media?
4. Is it possible to make the header and background all one solid color such as ALL BLACK or ALL WHITE ?
Here are my answers:
1. If you are referring to the gallery thumbnails – yes there is an option to change the default width and height to whatever size you like.
2. The theme is very flexible about custom fonts – it support both Google Fonts and Cufon fonts, you can see some examples here.
3. The default sharing functionality works per album (portfolio item), not per image.
4. By default there is an option to change both the header and bodu background colors. If you want to make them all connected, without any boundaries, you would only have to remove the default header shadows, which will require a small CSS modification.
Is there a way to add a link or little content next to the title of the gallery, where the share button appear on the left bottom?
I need to accomplish this maybe adding extra php code in some of the theme files, but don’t know which one.
Can you help me out?
Love the theme! Really looking forward to building it out.
Is there an easy way to add a static “block” to the gallery? An can it be responsive as well? Like say 3 panels at full width, and just one at 480px?
I’m not really sure if I understand your question correctly and what exactly you mean when you say “block” – is it a gallery item you are referring to? If yes, generally all the items have a static size and it changes just a little to fill the full screen, but there isn’t an option to set a dynamic width to the item so it fills the full width of the gallery.
