Discussion on Flamingo - Agency & Freelance Portfolio Theme

Hi

We have purchased the theme but during build we have noticed some strange looking files. From what our developers can gather they’re files that are auto generated by Microsoft Frontpage, which is nothing to do with Wordpress. From a bit of googling around we think this might mean a vulnerability in the theme files? Please can you confirm what the latest version of the theme is (we are woking on v 1.2) – when is an updated theme version coming out?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Regards

Hi,

I have not idea about that files you mention and I can asure you that they have nothing in common with the theme.

The whole theme was developed with Sublime Text, in fact, I would say that today any serious developer never would use Microsoft Frontpage for working.

The current theme version is v1.4, so I suggest you to update it and above all, to use a different code editor from Frontpage.

I use Adobe Brackets and Sublime text for this.

Hope it will be useful.

Cheers!

hi, images don’t work anymore, even trying to add via back end or front end, the single image does not retain after saving it. it has the generic, ‘add image to your element’

Hi tini,

it is very weird that suddenly the theme stops working. Anyway way, please, open a support ticket and provide there credentials to access to your site and review this closer.

Cheers!

how much flexibility is there in the portfolios? you mainly have inline images stacked on each other. can i have parallax sextions, text, galleries, more text, etc. I need to be able to create unique presentations on each portfolio with a lot of text and supporting images in galleries, or parallax, or full screen. i did not see any lightbox images or sliders. does it come with and can I do captions? if not, can I use ilightbox?

Hi!

well, as you can see, the method building is very near from the most of the page builders, so, you could create a 3 columns text and mixing within text and sliders, images… thumbnails? (I´m not pretty sure what you mean with).

In case of the fullscreen gallery, yes, I mean the one you find within the rhombus, but, you can fire the gallery adding a button with a special class you add within the page builder element. This will fire the gallery as well in a more explicit way : )

In case of the in built lightbox, the theme uses prettyPhoto. This lightbox system, like any others, allow you to modify the aspect just with CSS in a very easy way in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Hope it will be useful! :)

thanks! if I dont like pretty photo, can I use ilightbox or another gallery-lightbox plugin?

Hi!

I don´t know this plugin. Just notice that we can´t guaranty the full compatibility with every third party plugin. So, it is possible you would need to do some adjustment in order to get it work as you want.

How easy is it to change some of the design, for instance on this link http://demo.themeforesters.com/theme/flamingo-agency/portfolio/la-belle/# the grey box with the rhombus… Im looking to do something. more minimal. I have another presales post, but I want to be see I can have parallax sections between images.. could I do something like: parallax section one column text slider/video (inline or popup) 3 column text thumbnails (with lightbox popup) in one of the columns one column text with inline images parallax section more text etc. Or are these pages limited in some way? do you have more samples of the gallery options listed in the description. just looking for flexibility in designing each project as a full presentation. thanks!

VanKarWai

Hi again! : )

To be honest, I´m not really sure about what you mean with “parallax section one column text slider/video”, for example.

You can create as many columns as you could need with nested ones, with a limit of 8. Inside each column, you can add different elements like accordions, tabs, images, sliders, texts… The theme uses Visual Composer to create the contents, so you can use the page builder for this. So, make sure about how VC works to understand better Flamingo.

Once again, thank you very much about your interest! : )

can the portfolio projects be displayed full screen instead of boxed in the portfolio section? also can some of them (for example 3 or 4 recent ones) be displayed full screen or boxed in a section on the homepage (similar to one page themes) or do I have to go to always go to the “works” section?

at the top of each portfolio there is a full screen parallax section. can I put more full screen parallax sections in the portfolio itself between sections of text or images? if so, can I have text and links in the parallax sections?

Default-user

I mean “full width” not “full screen” (also if there cannot be full width parallax in portfolios, can I have full width inline images?)

VanKarWai

Hi!

I´m sorry, but the layout is “boxed” and no full width elements are allowed outside the hero area. This would need some development to achieve it.

Cheers!

is there any chance you will be updating his theme anytime soon with latest version of VC plugin

VanKarWai

Hey PtichWorx,

the theme is totally stable and includes a big amount of tools for the theme´s goals. Remember that Flamingo is a portfolio and not a multipropose theme. I say this, because VC is a great tool but it is a tool that is increasing in some many ways, being each time heavier and it starts being far from some proposes like ours when we created the theme (portfolio for creatives).

Anyway, we are reviewing the last plugin update in order to update the next week.

Hope it will be interesting for you : )
