Discussion on Floyd - One Page Parallax WordPress Theme

To whom it may concern.

I purchased this theme and although working through it fine am struggling with a few items that if fixed would make my life easier. Maybe someone can please help?

1. I would like to add a hover over some text in the about section (the one with the 4 icons and paragraph of copy). I can get it to work on the ‘stand alone’ page but as soon as it is in the final parallax format it doesn’t.

2.I would like to (for now) remove the hyperlink and change the icon for each of the projects in the portfolio section. As soon as it’s possible and there is enough information to warrant it, then I want to relink it to the specific project that slides open below it.

Anyone have any wise words of wisdom?

Thank you in advance.


1.) I see, I assume you are using a plugin to achieve that? If so, could you share a link to the page where it does not work and we will take a look. You can send us a url directly via our profile here if you do not want to share it publicly.

2.) Add this to Custom CSS field:
.open-project:hover {
cursor: default;

4.) We would have to check your website directly in order to figure out why it’s loading slowly. It could be due to slow hosting server, or images being un-optimized for the web. If you send us the url we can check, we will be able to check out what’s really slowing it down.

Hi, in reply to above

1.) I had a plugin but took it deactivated it as it wasn’t working. What is your address to send the url directly as I do not want to share it publicly. You can also see about # 4 slowness as well.

2.) Ca you also see this as I have pasted it but it doesn’t work.

Sorry for the hassle.

Thx again

Nice theme. Two Questions before I purchase -

1) Is it possible to do true parallax? Where the background image scrolls at a different speed/rate?

2) I’d like to add our Logo to the top of the page. Possible?

Thank you, and nice work!

Hi, Unfortunately true parallax is not a feature of this theme, only the fixed image parallax as seen in the demo. Your logo can be inserted in place of the “Floyd” text logo in the header of the theme. This can be done via the admin panel.

Hi bitfade. I have designed my parallax site using this theme but there are issues with the way it displays on a phone. The pc and tablets are fine but not the phone. A few of the problems I am having include:

The logo hanging off the bottom of the nav bar like its not adjusting its size.

Another is the text in the home slider cuts off parts of the text. Could this be that the sentences are too long?

The map, which I have as a jpeg leaves a huge gap between it and my contact form.

My facebook docual slider doesn’t show any posts or slide back in when I click on the handle.

Sorry for the hassles Cheers

Hello all!

Thanks for this great theme. Is it possible to show the pricing tables as 5 columns? This is necessary for our structure. I cannot change the columns range manually :/

Thanks a lot!

Hi, Unfortunately not. The structure of the theme and hence the pricing table too, is based on a 12column grid. Which that structure there is no way to create a 5 column layout. You would need to create it manually using totally new css which is independent of the theme structure. Considering this would need to be done for all resolutions, devices, etc. It would be a considerable amount of work. Perhaps using a plugin might make more sense.

Hi bitfade

I was wondering if you can help please.

I have a client and we are using this theme but I have one problem that keeps happening. On the contact page the mails do not seem to be sent or either they are sent but I do not get a mail sent message so I wouldn’t know if they are going through? The red Send Message button doesn’t depress so no one knows if it is working or not. Please help because it is highly frustrating and my only other solution is to remove it completely or add a contact form 7 in its place.

thank you

Hi, You could try installing and configuring this plugin, it has helped many of our customers: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-wp-smtp/ Let me know if that works for your setup.

Hi bitfade. no luck so we just took the contact section out. I think the problem was 2-fold. There was no validation message appearing so they didn’t know if the message was being sent and the button doesn’t have that ‘pressed down’ effect so they just kep pressing it.

How can I change the speed of the gallery slider? I looked around in the files and did some trial and error, but no luck so far…

thanks, that helped.

Dear all,

I have posted a thread regarding some issues with the mobile view. I wanted to make sure to stick to the support rules :)


Thanks guys!


thank you, I will make sure someone replied to your thread soon.


we are using this theme in my company and I was wondering if there is any way to insert more content and/or make sub pages. E.g. create a drop down menu when you hover over the menu bar which makes it possible to go more ‘in depth’ and provide a page with more details to the overview of the main page. Or make the items on “our services” clickable – a click through to a subpage.

Someone will help you out, we try to keep the comments area clean (ie. only pre-purchase questions).


Hi bitfade

I purchased the floyd wordpress theme. All was well on Friday last week in one of the sections and when I looked this morning it wasn’t working. No one has gone into the dashboard to work on anything so I have no idea what is going on. Where do I get support – here or on http://support.pixelentity.com/forums/48-Floyd-WordPress-Theme

I need to fix this asap. Thx

Hi, Have you made sure to disable JS compress in the theme options panel? You’ll find it in the advanced tab.

Also make sure any cache you have is cleared.

Hi, my website it is not working, it just keep loading. http://barcelonaweb.cat/

Hi Guys

For some reason the Services Icons disappear when you check out the page (zippy.com.ng) unless logged In which never used to be the case.

The other issue is the site looks out of place on desktop on Internet Explorer the pictures in the slider don’t look right on IE on a desktop.

The contact form is also not working and the parallax doesn’t seem to be working either i.e if you click on contact it doesn’t take you to the contact part of the parrallax and so on and so forth

Its quite strange but hope to hear from you with some help

Hi Guys

That’s the thing I already did that first but no one has gotten back to me yet see my thread here : http://twitthat.com/bo2sQ

Hi, Our support is closed on the weekends so on Monday we have to work through the backlog, which can take a while. Also please note that bumped threads which have not yet received a staff reply are returned to the back of the queue by the support system. Please be patient, I’ve flagged your thread for a reply.

Hello, I do not have a Cpanel or FTP software and I just have a Wordpress account, but I will like to download it without losing my files and such, how can I effectively do this. Also, when I ran my website on google insights it suggested that I remove render blocking javascript, how do I do that, or the equivalent to that, to improve the speed of my page?

Ok, I did, thank you!

Is it possible to set a link in the logos under the testimonial carousel? I’m only able to link the text and logos in the carousel, but not in the line below .. :(

Hi, Unfortunately that’s not possible in the theme by default and would require a significant amount of work to achieve it. Hence it beyond the scope of our support. We would recommend that you seek the help of a WP freelancer to make this change for you.


1. I would like to increase the size of the images shown for the project section (once you click on the project itself) and be able to scroll between the projects (like <back and >next) as if it were a photography portfolio to scroll through the images.
Is there a quick way that I can do this?

Thanks, is there a way that I can the size of the images once you click on one of the projects?

Thanks, and is there any way that I can increase the size of the image. (i.e. once the project image is clicked on and it pops up-can I enlarge this image?)

Hi, please see this thread from our support forums about this question: http://support.pixelentity.com/threads/13730-Project-Image-Sizes?highlight=project+image


I inherited a website to manage. This site was built with your Floyd theme, version 1.0.0. The old web designer has not done the latest updates.There are updates important to do? It is necessary that repurchase the theme for my clients?


We usually release updated to fix bugs and to fix problems arising from a new update to WordPress. So all of the updates are important to have if your clients want to use the latest version of WordPress.

Ok thanks, I purchase immediatly!
