Hi,

Awesome theme, but how can i get the homepage to show my work like in the live preview?

Kind regards, Emiel

ThemeBeans

Hey glad you’re liking it Emiel!

Check out this section of the Folo Help File, which covers the home page portion. Then you would simply add your portfolio posts.

Oh and don’t forget to download the Free Bean Portfolios Plugin!

Hi,

I didn’t selected an image to show on the homepage. that was the problem :) But I have another question.

I want my site to be in Dutch but ik can’t find the file where I can change ‘Subscribe’ of the newsletter. Can you help me with that?

ThemeBeans

Gotcha, you can change line 64 of lib/widgets/widget-newsletter.php where it currently says this: <?php _e(‘Subscribe’,’bean’); ?>

Cheers, Rich

Thanks! that worked for me :)

Hey, that looks pretty cool and close to what I am currently looking for. Is there a way to categorize the portfolio items? And maybe filter it by ajax? If not – do you have close plans to implement that feature? Thank you!

ThemeBeans

Hey 100wunder (cool name btw). You can categorize them by the portfolio category into separate pages (links below). We do not plan to introduce a ajax filter in Folo – mostly because of the subtle infinite loading technique and simple/elegant experience the theme currently offers.

Cheers!

Any plans to add a gallery, or can you recommend a gallery to use with this theme? Do you see any problems with me integrating woocommerce into this theme?

ThemeBeans

Hey Dailce, what do you mean by a gallery exactly? There’s a gallery post format as well as the portfolio template (which is the demo home page) that I would consider a gallery – or do you have something else in mind?

I have not tested WooCommerce with Folo.

Cheers, Rich

Default-user

Type of gallery I had in mind is something just like the home page, but with pagination, maybe a filter, and when you click on an image it doesn’t take you to a new page, but simply enlarges the image with a lightbox or something.

FYI on your demo http://demo.themebeans.com/folo/shortcodes/ using firefox, hover over the feature link at the top and shortcodes has a white box on top of it.

ThemeBeans

Thanks for that – fixed now. :)

Ah I see. We don’t have plans at the moment to introduce that kind of lightbox/filtering to Folo but it’s on the list for future themes for sure – the same with WooCommerce.

Thanks again, Rich

Default-user

Just one more prepurchase question, trying to decide between your theme and this one http://themeforest.net/item/minty-responsive-portfolio-wordpress-theme/5528602 – is there a way for your portfolio to have a load button and filtering instead of infinite scroll? Can you have to different “work” pages (basically 2 different portfolios) using your theme?

ThemeBeans

No there is not a filtering system nor a load more button – currently it’s just the infinite loading js function.

And yup, you can split portfolios via the category. Here’s an example.

The theme looks perfect for my architecture work. Is there a list of links for how people have customized it for their own websites? Thanks so much!

Hey JolieKerns, glad you like the theme! We’re compiling some user’s sites for a theme showcase but it’s not quite ready yet.

Just installed. Pictures I attached to my blog posts show up in the “Related Posts” section, but they do not show up in the main blog. Any ideas? Should they be a specific dimension?

edit: Nevermind, seems you have to select “image” as the post format, now I have to go through all my posts I suppose?

ThemeBeans

That’s correct, the image post format provides the post’s featured image vs the standard – which just displays the title/meta/content area.

I want to place some text above my home page portfolio, but can’t seem to get it to work. Is this even possible?

ThemeBeans

Anything is possible with some dev work, but that is not built into the theme by default.

Here’s a working example & starting point that you would add to header.php line 90 – to get you going.

Thanks for the awesome support.

Got everything working ok. Installed sample data :) What I’m not sure about is the portfolio settings, there is an option “Gallery Settings” that allows you to upload and arrange pictures, but it doesn’t do anything??? Can you please elaborate? I followed the video: http://help.themebeans.com/customer/portal/articles/1229859-portfolio-media-folo-a-video-tutorial and the portfolio images get added when you do it by “Uploaded to this post”. However, it would be nicer if the Gallery Settings section allowed for images to be managed – or am I missing something?

ThemeBeans

Is does do something – if you use it.

You can upload images either way – using the top Add Media button (like in that demo) or through the new Gallery Settings meta box, which displays when you are using the Gallery Post Type.

When you upload with the gallery uploader, you may drag and drop them in the order you desire. It’s basically an easier way to manage your images – instead of having to go through the motions to get to “Uploaded to this Post”.

If you do not use the custom uploader, your images are STILL uploaded – just not in the Gallery Settings panel.

I’m having a strange problem with the images. If I upload my picture A.jpg with the “add media” or the “Gallery Settings” my image WILL show up on the portfolio-single.php file, BUT it does not show up in the portfolio settings, nor on page-portfolio.php.

However, I can add a “Featured Image” – it can be A.jpg or B.jpg, and this will show in the settings and portfolio page. Seems like the Featured Image is tied to the settings and the portfolio page, and the “Gallery Settings” are only tied to the the single portfolio showcase.

I’m stumped on what file to edit to fix this?

ThemeBeans

Hey Dailce, a bit confused here.

If you upload an image, and set it to the featured image, then your portfolio will display on the portfolio page. You need to have the featured image set in order to display the portfolio post on the portfolio template.

I created it this way because the featured images and the single post portfolio images are two completely different sizes. And I think uploading a featured image will fix your error there.

For the Gallery Settings box, only the images uploaded to through meta field will display, otherwise you can check the uploaded posts via the “Uploaded to this Post” selector in the media manager of the post.

Hope this clears things up!

Default-user

Ah. I feel like such a noob. I was thinking that the image displayed on the portfolio page was coming from the first image in the gallery settings box, not the featured image. In that case, it’s working perfectly as it should. Sorry for any trouble.

ThemeBeans

Awesome – it happens :)

Hey there, I’m looking to have only 2 columns similar to

http://bielkeyang.com/

Is that possible?

Thanks

ThemeBeans

It’s possible if you know a bit of code. You would take the media query CSS and adjust it a bit to the default theme styles.

Hiya,

I’m a writer, and most of my work is on webpages and copy, so the text is really what I want people to see. When I post images to the gallery (I usually just get entire web page images), they open up relatively small in the lightbox—which makes it difficult to read. Is there any way I can get the images to open up full size so clients can read the information right there in the lightbox as they scroll through it?

Besides that issue, this is a great theme. SUPER lightweight and clean (just how us writers like it).

Cheers,

Pengu

ThemeBeans

Hey Pengu, glad you’re liking it. Are you referring to the light box feature, such as on this page here?

Those images will open up at max width, as long as your browser allows. For instance, this is how big the image is that I’ve uploaded, but when the screen is smaller, the image accommodates that screen size – in order to ensure maximum visibility.

It is possible to modify these a bit with the CSS that starts on line 699, marked with “CUSTOM VIEW.JS CSS THEME”.

I hope this is what you were referring to! If you like Folo, you’ll really like what we just uploaded this morning for review. It’s killer :)

Hi ThemeBeans,

I have a question about the font for this theme. Can i install or using different font form the original font in the theme? Thanks Bun

ThemeBeans

Hey Bun, if you know your way using Google Fonts (it’s fairly easy) then you can use any of those – or you can even load your own @font-face fonts.

There is a Google Fonts Plugin that works as well – though I recommend changing the fonts via the child theme (a much cleaner way to do it.

All in all, yes! :)

About the twitter widget. It seems to be adding a period ie. ”.” at the end of links that are part of the tweet. Also, is there any way to have two instances of the twitter widget? Thanks.

ThemeBeans

Hmm that’s odd. Do you mind copying this comment to our Bean Support Center with your URL so I can check it out for you?

I do not think it’s possible with the current build of the plugin – most definitely not on the same page, but maybe on different ones – I’ll look into it some more for you.

Hi looks great, just want to know how customisable this would be if I was to restyle to have title at top, image in middle, and description below and have different sized tiles. With a feature larger version in the middle.

See here for a rough idea: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4il0ik0rka0jb1x/design.jpg

ThemeBeans

Hey Ross, if you know your way around code a bit then you wont have a too much of a problem customizing it like so. If you’re not a developer-type then I would recommend posting a customize request on Microlancer.

I want to create a page template that displays a certain portfolio category so that I can assign this as the home page.

Where do I modify this in the loop to display a certain portfolio category?

<?php
//LOAD PORTFOLIO QUERY - NEED BEAN PORTFOLIO POST TYPE PLUGIN
$args = array(
'post_type'         => 'portfolio',
'orderby'             => 'menu_order',
'order'             => 'ASC',
'paged'             => $paged,
'posts_per_page'     => $portfolio_paged,
);
query_posts($args); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); 
?>
ThemeBeans

Hey @ynathoo, there’s actually this functionality built into the theme already – like this page here: http://demo.themebeans.com/folo/portfolio_category/photography/

Is that what you’re referring to, or would you rather a complete separate template?

Default-user
ynathoo Purchased

I think I figured it out. Is this the correct way to manipulate the code or do you have a more efficient way of doing this?

I changed this

query_posts($args); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();

to this

query_posts(‘portfolio_category=CATEGORY NAME HERE’); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();

I don’t want the whole portfolio loading on the home page, I just want one category. By default, you can’t set the home page from the general reading settings to a certain portfolio category, it can only assign pages. Follow me?

Also, how would I get the chosen category, category button to an active highlighted stage in the menu on page load?

Default-user
ynathoo Purchased

I think the smarter way to do this would be to use a conditional statement

if( is_home() ) {

this would possibly solve the menu problem. Thoughts?

ThemeBeans

Ah I see what you want to do. The is_home could do the trick.

How do you go about making different catogories for the portfolio?

Whats the difference between that and just making multiple pages..etc..one for photography..one for design?

ThemeBeans

Hey there! I wrote a little article in our help center to assist with portfolio categories (Link here).

All in all, there’s no need to create pages, because per default WP functionality – these “pages” are technically already created.

Cheers, Rich

Default-user

Okay, I understand what your saying.

However, I do not see the portfolio categories section in my sidebar? where about is this located?

Default-user

Ahhh.

Okay so, I have two categories..i make one page called art. Make this page in the portfolio template. Now, how do I go about…

a) simply putting all the photos in and making it work like the demo.

b) how do i get them to two different categories?

c) when i get the gallery running, while I need to make a thumbnail size and a bigger size before uploading. Or can i upload one large one and use that for both?

Thank you very much for your time.

Default-user

Also from some of the videos ive seen, I see some have a portfolio tab on the dash board but mine does not?

ThemeBeans

Hey, You probably need to download the Bean Portfolio Plugin if you have not already. This will add the Portfolio Dashboard item, as well as your categories/links to the different pages.

We also wrote the Folo Theme Documentation to help out some. :)

Default-user

Can you send me the link to the video cast on the portfolio image uploading?

I saw it before cant seem to find it. I dont know why im having troubles understanding how this works…its still not working for me.

Default-user

So I have the blog set up as the posts page..I have the contact page set up..got the logo and all that good stuff..but however..

I have created a portfolio post called art..I made two separate categories..I deleted the page art..and just put the portfolio most on the menu…also put the categories as the sub items for art so they do show up on the pop down menu..so now when you click on art on the navigation..it takes you to the post with the images..but the images are uploading in a horizontal order and nothing is in the categories..how do I make them appear scattered as in the demo..as well as separate my media into categories?

here is the URL..http://jessereinhard.com/home/?portfolio=art

Default-user

Also, on the post under the URL i just sent you..there is a broken link to the left of the page..with the little boxes..what is that for?

Sorry for all the questions and thank you for your help.

ThemeBeans

Here’s the screencast.

They are loading side-by-side for the most part because of the allotted space, and the images being thinner & what do you mean by “scattered”?

Do you mind contacting us with your response through the Bean Support Center? Would be much much better than spamming/filling the comment wall with support questions.

Hi, I previously asked a couple of questions at the Wonder theme comments section comparing Folo with Wonder. I’m now pretty set on buying Folo but just had some questions regarding the margins.

Can I increase the size of left and right margin (white space) as I find it too close to the edge of the screen at the moment? (I hope this question makes sense). If I can, is it via CSS? Would you be able point out which lines of CSS to change once I purchase the theme?

Thank you.

ThemeBeans

Hey Zceline! Awesome, glad you’re interested in Folo, personally Wonder toots my horn – but Folo is pretty sexy as well :)

For the container margins, those are relatively easy to modify – though the primary concern would be the responsive queries that are triggered based on the size of the screen. As your size gets smaller, so does the row width (set in mobile.css, at the top) – in order to ensure a sweet viewing experience throughout devices.

Those numbers may need a little tweaking, as you add margin/padding to the grid – but we’ll definitely point you in the right direction!

Cheers, Rich

Hi again!

First off, I couldn’t find a support forum for this so I am posting here. Happy to log this at a separate support forum if there’s one – please let me know!

Anyway, I’ve purchased the theme now and I can’t figure out this problem. I do not want my blog posts to be cut off so I’ve set the Custom Excerpt Length to 1000 so the entire blog entry will show up. This works fine on posts that are just full of text, however, when I want to post an entry that is has text and images interspersed, only the text shows up and I have to go into the blog post to display the entire post with the pictures in between. For example, I would like my blog page to display entries like http://decor8blog.com where an entire post is displayed with text and multiple images.

I’ve experimented with this and realised that if I set the post as an ‘Image’ post and put a featured image, it will display the featured image at the top of the post, but if there are other images further down the entry, it will still not display unless I view the individual blog entry.

Would you be able to please tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks!

Hello!

Is it possible to exclude a Port Folio category from the “Portfolio Page” ?

Or, is it possible to set a specific “Portfolio Category” as home page?

Default-user

I have another issue:

after I put my widget in a Widget Sidebar (Internal or Custom Sidebar), I can see the widget on my site, but after I exit the Widget Area Manager, the Widget Sidebar are empty, no one widget is shown.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9382755/screen.jpg

ThemeBeans

Hey Dereck!

You would need to modify the loop on the page-portfolio.php. Here’s a resource to help point you in the right direction.

For the Custom Widget Area, did you assign pages/posts to display it on? Basically it replaces the Internal Widget Area on certain pages, so you can have different widgets (or none) on some pages. To check your conditions, click on Widget Area and view the list of them. Here’s a screenshot: http://thmbns.co/S2bI).

Default-user

I’m not a developer. Could you show me the code to exclude a “Portfolio Category” from the loop of the main Portfolio page please?

:)

ThemeBeans

See if this works here. Add this below line 27 (and before the 28) of page-portfolio.php (http://snippi.com/s/xxkre3x). That may do the trick.

ThemeBeans

The taxonomy needs to be “portfolio_category” and the slug is your category variable there.

Hello!

I was wondering if there is a way to make the site fixed at a 3 column width. If so, any assistance would be much appreciated!

Oh and I was hoping to add a thin horizontal rule beneath the header. How can I do this?

Thank you :)

ThemeBeans

Hey @DaniGood23, do you mean to take out the responsive nature and cap the width at 3 columns? this screenshot here portrays the element that caps the 3 column width when you shrink your browser window smaller than 900px. You can move those CSS elements to the corresponding element in framework.css if that’s what you’re looking for. :)

For the HR, to manually add it as an HR HTML element, you could add it to header.php, probably around line 90.

Hope this helps! Rich
