I am hoping you can help me out.

Here’s the situation.

When I am viewing my website on a mobile phone ( I have a droid), when I am scrolling though the thumbnail images on the main portfolio page, if my finger touches (clicks) any of the images while I am trying to scroll down, then it takes me to that project page.

While I understand that it’s probably working as designed, I am not really happy with that functionality, because it makes it difficult to scroll through the images without accidentally being taken away from that page.

There is virtually no white space on either side of the thumbnails, and thus the only place I can safely put my finger to scroll down without clicking into the project is on the small space below the image where the title appears.

Is there any way I can require the thumbnail image to be clicked twice on a mobile device or something of that nature in order to enter into that page?

That way a user can scroll through the thumbnails and if their thumb hits one of the images while scrolling down, that it doesn’t take them to that page.

I searched through the message board, and It looks like you removed that functionality at some point.

I found a post where someone was complaining about having to click twice on an iphone. Looks like some update was going to change the functionality and remove the double clicking….

But in my situation, I am looking to have it function with a double click required on phone size mobile devices, where only 1 thumbnail across fits.

My site is: http://www.colleensweeney.com

Please see below for that post, and your response:

1. I’ve noticed that the hover effect you have on thumbnails that is the solid colour with a cross, causes you to have to press the image twice to go to the page (on iPhone at least) – first to bring up the cross and again to go through – feels like it dodnt work first time around.

I havent investigated the code but I think this is because IOs captures all javascript onhover calls and converts them to onclick events – so what is a hover effect on desktop with a click through, becomes a double click to obtain a click through on mobile.

1. Yes, correct. There is an easy fix for this. I’ll dump into the next update. $(’.portfolio-entry-img-link’).on(‘click touchend’, function(e) { var el = $(this); var link = el.attr(‘href’); window.location = link; }); You should need to load this using wp_is_mobile();

Thank you. Colleen


You are 100% correct, this should be fixed. Send me a private message Collen for the updated file to test. Please link to this original comment so I know what you require.

You can message me privately via the form on this page – http://themeforest.net/user/WPExplorer – and I will respond via email. Make sure to send me all pertinent data and context so we can get this sorted in a timely manner.


Okay will do, thanks for your help.


Hi, I sent you a private message a few days ago. Just wanted to touch base and see when you might be able to help me resolve this?


Hi there,

We like the theme :) but wanted to ask a few questions before we purchase in order to check its suitability for our client if that’s OK?

1. Home page slideshow: is it possible to add videos as well as images? 2. Is there a fixed width option? I can only see full width on the preview. And if so, is it possible to add a background image? And if so, is is possible to change the background image for different pages? 3. Can we change our logo on different pages? We have 3 logos for 3 sections of the site.. 4. On the portfolio description page, is is possible to mix video and images in the slideshow or does it have to be images OR video?

Many thanks indeed,

Best wishes, Andrea


Thank you for your help in resolving my last issue.

I have one more question for you that I am hoping you can help me with.

I am using the blog page as a place to post patterns and artwork that I make on a regular basis. Like daily posts of artwork.

I am noticing however that the image of the artwork that is displayed on the base blog page for each entry appears a bit blurrier then the actual image that I upload.

When I click on the image, it opens in lightbox and appears clear, crisp, and as it should.

However on the blog page itself, it doesn’t appear that way.

It’s almost as if there is some sort of filter or slight blur being applied to the image.

I am imagining that maybe it was a stylistic effect applied that might be more better suited for actual photographs.

But I am using the blog for artwork so that effect is not optimal.

Here’s the page for your reference. http://colleensweeney.com/patterns/

Is there anyway to remove the blur?

Thanks !


Hi, I’m just bumping this post as it’s been two weeks. Please let me know what you think :)


Are you looking in Firefox maybe? Firefox doesn’t shrink images well and the images are cropped at 675px but the actual container is actually 674px so it shrinks by 1px.

You can try editing the file at functions/image-default-sizes.php and altering the default image sizes for the post (set by default to 700×320).

//blog post/entry
if( $args == 'blog_post_width' ) return '700';
if( $args == 'blog_post_height' ) return '320';
if( $args == 'blog_post_crop' ) return true;

Hi! I’m interested in this theme but i’d like to know if it’s possible to create 2 Blogs, for example, one for Clippings and other for News. And I’d like to know if can i create albums in the Gallery’s Page, because i want to post photos by many cities. Thanks!


Hi, could you answer my question, pls? And i’d like to know if this theme support Visual Composer too. Thanks!

Hi – Can you tell me what’s caused the search box to go wonky: http://d.pr/i/IuTQ

I have’t changed anything in the theme for a year now so maybe one of the recent WordPress updates did something?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Site: http://elearningdesigner.com/


Its impossible to know looking at the site, but it appears that the searchform.php file was either modified or some plugin you have installed is modifying it’s output.


It turned out to be the Qards plugin. Is there any way you can tell how to fix it from looking at the site: http://elearningdesigner.com

Worst case I can move Qards to a subdomain so it’s not effecting my main WP installation.



Moving the plugin is a pain..Just send me a private message and I will email you a modified header.php file with the fix that you can update via FTP.

I’ve purchased this theme and i’ve sent you an message 2 days ago from themeforest but i have no asnwer until now. Could you help me please?



Will respond in a second, thank you for your patience!

Very sweet theme! I just got a small issue. When I use the “Tabbed Recent Posts Widget” like you did in the contacts site, it is empty in my case. I see the tabs “Blog” and “Portfolio” but they are empty although I got blog entries and portfolio items.


Do your blog posts and portfolio items have featured images?

I have recently purchased this theme and I am very happy with it! It functions very well and even as a first-time wp user it’s pretty easy to work with.

I only have one issue and that is the color. I was wondering, if there is any possible way to customise it… for example..

- I would like the 2 top bars (now grey) to be white - Change the generally used orange color (fonts, tabs, tags etc) - Change the thin orange line seperating the thumbnail and text below to a white so it becomes invisible

I have tried to find a solution within wp as well as reading up on it online. But I just can’t find anything :-( Is there a plugin you can recommend? Or a code I can use? I installed a css Plugin.

I would be very very happy for any information and help!

Thank you!!

I did find a plugin ( Color Studio for WP ) and was able to customise the colors after all!

Just one more thing I can’t work out I am afraid. :-(

- Is it possible to change the font used: type, size and wether its capital/regular/italic etc

Including the top right header (now: italic) as well as individual page titles? Again I have looks for suitable plugins, simple code and under appearances etc.. but can’t figure it out..

I am very hesitate to mess with the css.style file, as I don’t really know what I am doing..

Again it be great to hear back from you. Maybe you can recommend a suitable plugin that let’s me change ALL type used..

If I can work it out myself in the meantime I will be happy to drop you a line.

Thank you!!!

Hello, how are you?

With this theme I can create multiple independent portfolios?


Site Menu:

- Portfolio 1: Product Category A, Product Category B, Product Category C

- Portfolio 2: Product Category X, Product Category Y, Product Category Z

- Portfolio 3: Product Category F, Product Category G, Product Category H

And within each category, several products in the portfolio with the possibility of filters them.

Thank you.
