Hey,

I must start by saying I love the theme! It’s the cleanest Tumblr based one I’ve come across.

One thing before I buy it though. Is there anyway to add thumbnails to a post and then have them open into a lightbox?

Something similar to this? http://girlwithacamera.co.uk/

Thanks

mikedidthis

Hey.

Thanks for the kind words, really appreciate them.

At the moment, there is no lightbox support in this theme, but adding one should be fairly simple. This is a requested feature from a few users, so I planned to add one along with other items in the next release.

At the moment I haven’t got a confirmed release date, but it shouldn’t be more than two weeks.

Thanks for getting in touch.

Thanks for the quick reply mate, you’re a star.

I’ll check back in a few weeks and if it’s added, I’ll definitely be buying it.

mikedidthis

Not a problem. I will throw you a tweet when the update is completed and released. Thanks again :)

Is there a way to make the photoset to be large like the rest of the single images you would post? For example the ‘High Resolution Images’ is only available for singe images, but for photoset it resizes smaller awkwardly to the left screen. Also, preview for photoset seem to not work as well…

mikedidthis

Hi there,

Firstly thanks for purchasing the theme.

At the moment, Photosets aren’t supported very well. I have noted this in the documentation, its due to how Tumblr handles them.

I am however working on replacing Photosets as follows: Use largest image, and make them into a slideshow.

This shouldn’t be more than a few days away. Can you post your URL so I can see how they are being displayed?

Many Thanks

Hi, I usually create a test tumblr before I put it on my main blog. Here’s the sample: http://testingpageforme.tumblr.com/ see how the photoset sits on a corner, wish it could be enlarged, it would suit better imo.

See as the poster below said, the grid like when it comes to photoset and to be able to preview, seem to just give blank instead never had an issue with my other theme though, eager to use this theme

Oh and flickr set on the side? seems to be the only thing missing lol :D

mikedidthis

Hey,

Leave it with me, I am setting some time tomorrow to update Focus tomorrow. I only recently found the new code for Photosets, so I can fix this.

As for flickr… If I have time, I have a list of features as long as my arm to fit in first :)

Default-user

Hi,

Thanks for the reply and taking your time to do this, great work and thank you again :D

mikedidthis

Hi!

Just to keep you all in the loop, here is what is planned for the next update:

Photosets / Grid Layout Lightbox Support Flickr Support Google Fonts Support Facebook Comment Support Various Fixes And Options Updated Docs

As you can see, its a vast update, and I am working / testing over the weekend, and will release on Monday.

Thank you so much, to everyone who has supported the theme, just a few more days now :)

mikedidthis

Hey there!

Focus has now been updated to support Photosets, and Flickr feeds.

Enjoy!

Hi Great template PLEASE Can you post multiple photo grid on this template

please!

mikedidthis

Hey,

Thanks for the comment. I am adding a slideshow for Photosets, but not a grid.

Is this what you want?

mikedidthis

Actually, I shall be adding a grid. I found this post: http://staff.tumblr.com/post/7615038792/photoset-redux

Hey.

Focus is now updated, and includes Photosets :)

Great update mate!

Did you decide not to go with a lightbox option? I can’t seem to see any support for it and that’s what I was really hoping for.

Also, the thumbnails look a little blurry. Is that due to theimages you uploaded or is that just the way the script handles it all ie would be the same regardless of the image used?

mikedidthis

Hey!

Update? I am still working on this now! :)

I presume your talking about the photoset options? Lightbox is next on the list.

Basically, I am adding a bucket of extras plus fixes, and then releasing as one package! :)

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Ahh ok! I got confused as you’ve added a new post to the demo site and I assumed that was to showcase the new features. Also, you mentioned it would be released today which made m,e think it was an update even more.

It all makes sense now though.

Any idea of a release date?

mikedidthis

Haha, sorry for the confusion. I am testing things on the current site plus a development site :)

Hopefully tomorrow, but the list is around 15 items so I can’t say 100%. Well worth the wait though, and light box is included!

Cool!

Sounds like a lot of work has gone in to it, so seems like it’ll be worth waiting a couple of days for.

Cheers

mikedidthis

Hey!

Focus is now updated, grab it now, for some real nice treats !

mikedidthis

Hey!

Just to let you know, lightbox is now installed :)

great updates ! but lightbox not properly work on mobile devices

mikedidthis

Hi.

Thanks for the nice comment. Can you explain what the issue is a bit more specifically about the lightbox and mobile devices?

I have tested the script, which isn’t written by myself, on Android, iPhone 4 & iPhone.

The more details I have, the more chance I can resolve the issue.

Thanks

I have 2 Quick Questions

1) I have a website that has smaller images like 500px x 500px will they still look ok or will they get pixilated…

2) When someone clicks an image is there a way to take them to a URL instead of lightbox?

Just need to know before I purchase, thank you for your assistance and creating this beautiful theme.

mikedidthis

Hey Wally.

1) The images replacement defaults to 500px if the 1280px version isn’t available. However this is stretched, so may look pixelated. I can however add a small tweak that would stop this happening on 500px wide images.

2) Currently no, but again, with a small tweak, I can enable an option to select clickthroughs.

Thanks for your comments, really appreciate them, the questions are something I hadn’t considered, but I shall make a start now :)

Cheers

mikedidthis

WallyH

If I purchase the theme would there be any way that you would be able to tweak that? (Send via email or something like that?) Sorry to be needy but that would kill me if I wouldn’t be able to do that. :) And I can not find a theme the compares to yours… It just rocks… :) Please let me know!

mikedidthis

Awww thanks. Can you send me a URL to your tumblr theme, so I can get a better understand on the images it would be dealing with?

Many Thanks

mikedidthis

WallyH

I used the contact form to send you the link to my site, did you get it?

mikedidthis

Hi Wally.

Yes I replied. :) Here is my dev area http://mikedidthis-dev.tumblr.com/ , where I have 500px images. :)

Currently making the swap out smoother.

Huge thanks to Mike for an awesome theme and incredible support. This theme was 99% of what I was looking for and he took the time and effort to make it 100%. A great looking theme and a great developer—what more could you need?

Hi there, great theme but I’m having a lot of trouble with menus – where are they, and how do I make them more prominent?

Like where is the Ask Me Anything, About, etc

simantics.tumblr.com

mikedidthis

Hi Simantics,

Thanks for purchasing the theme, but sorry to hear the menu’s are causing you trouble.

The ‘menu’ is a simple filter for post ‘tags’ of your choice.

At the moment you have posts tagged ‘MadeWithPaper’. If you add this tag to ‘Nav Item 1’ in the customize dashboard, users can then choose to view only these posts tagged with ‘MadeWithPaper’ via filter menu.

Ask Me Anything is currently unsupported, but I will try to add this in the next update.

Any more problems, please let me know.

Hello Mike, first I love this theme, had to buy it as I am transferring my wife and I’s site from WP. I have a few questions for you.

1) I did not see anything in the doc on post code to the blog as it say it has syntax coloring support?

2) any luck in getting a github icon in the top right nav? I can create on for you if necessary as I am rolling this site out this week. thanks man.

mikedidthis

Hi Chris,

Welcome aboard! Glad you like the theme. Answers below:

1) I am in the process of updating the docs. Syntax support is provide by http://code.google.com/p/google-code-prettify/. To use the highlighting, wrap your code with:

<pre></pre>

and give it a class of:

prettyprint linenums
And your all set.

2)I am pretty sure I have a Github icon already in the font-face. Let me double check and get back to you.

Thanks again, any problems, get back in touch.

Regards

mikedidthis
mikedidthis

Yep, I thought I already had a Git icon. If you add the following code after line 852 into the theme, you can have your icon. :)

<li><a href="http://githhub.com/username" class="github" title="Github"><span>-</span></a></li>

Again, let me know if you have any issues, and thanks again for purchasing the theme.

Mike -

I tried to add that after line 852, which is :

{block:HasPages} <section class=”pages”>

Pages

for me and it did not work.

mikedidthis

Hi Chris,

Sorry was really early this morning. Line 844, after {/block:IfGoogleProfile}. If you copy and paste the code I posted earlier, you should be good to go.

If not, send me a message via TF, and I will email you a copy with the code changes.

Thanks again. :)

While checking out Firebug for my this theme I am noticing it is getting an error stating”twttr is not defined”

thoughts?

thanks for all of your help bro

mikedidthis

Hi Chris,

Can you give me an URL for your Tumblr Blog?

Twttr I think is Twitter, but I would need to see your current set up to see why its causing an error.

Thanks again :)

Hello Again Mike,

I am trying to use a 300×80 image for the header, I read in a previous post you were working on a large adjustment for logos. Was wondering if you had those adjustments in place?

Thanks man, I really appreciate it.

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items
  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

Really enjoying the theme but the logo constraints are a bit much. How does one go about having a header logo appear without the text?

mikedidthis

Hi simsinstereo.

Glad your enjoying the theme :)

Yep, the logo is a bit of a pain, but it was a balance acting between a clean and responsive theme.

There are notes on the FAQ for using an image only logo, I shall add an option in the customise dashboard to make this easier.

Let me know how you get on :)

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Mike – I take that last post about the 300 back, I wish I could delete it. From the other posts, I think an 80×80 icon would be perfect for a vector logo.

mikedidthis

Hi Chris,

There is support for an 80 x XXX logo, it just needs enabling in customisation dashboard.

Replied to your email as well :)

This goes out to anyone that is hesitant or not sure about this theme… (Why would you anyways)

DONT THINK … BUY IT !

You won’t be sorry. I have never met a developer that is so passionate about what they do!

Keep up the awesome work Mike!
