Great work!

I noticed that the portfolio and gallery seem to behave a bit odd IMO .

When either page first shows up, you see all the images. Then about 1 second later, the ajax spinner shows up on all the images and reloads even though they were already visibly loaded. This behavior is easily reproducible by navigating between the portfolio / gallery pages.

I then realized that it seems like all the images in the site that are being lazily loaded are exhibiting this inefficient, annoying behavior. However if it’s intended to work this way, please disregard.

Hi there,

The first time when you visit a page it works like it’s intended but if you visited the pages before the images are not preloaded anymore because they’re already downloaded in the cache and they display right away. That’s why you see this.

Cheers!

Of course. However, my point was that if they’re already loaded / visible to the visitor, they shouldn’t need to be loaded again. If they do for whatever reason, the images should at least be hidden from view. After that, the ajax animation can be shown until the images appear. Otherwise, this will likely be confusing to clients / visitors. Regardless, it seems that you’re aware of this behavior and that it’s intended to work this way so I’ll trouble you no more.

Good luck with sales! :-)

Cheers!

Fantastic theme – and fantastic support! Designer has been incredibly helpful in sorting out technical issues (of my own doing – not the theme!). Thank you so much for everything.

Sweet stuff. Keep rollin them out. :)

SkatDesign

Hey,

Thank you.

Cheers!

Nice work!

Care to share the access to docs?

Oops Does it come a site builder? OR I am asking too much? ;)

Default-user

I don’t have a ‘help’ folder because I am yet to buy the theme. :)

The site builder is basically part of the backend where most of the site could be built by simply drag and drop and no shortcodes used. If I can see the help doc I might be able to see how easy it is to work with the theme.

Also: 1.when I view it on my smartphone (Windows), it does not respond.

2. It crashed on Chrome and reloads. Works fine with Firefox but a lot of the content including the slider is missing in IE! Any clue?

SkatDesign

Hi there,

I understand now, but no, the theme does not have a drag & drop page builder.

1. Unfortunately I have no Win. mobile environment to check right now, but I’lm looking forward to find a solution.

2. This is weird. I’ve double checked on most browsers including in IE down to IE7 and it works fine for me on my PC, laptop, iphone and ipad.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks.

It responds all right when the browser window is resized but does not respond on a smartphone handset.

Beautiful theme… Does it come with an XML file for import?

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

Yes, it comes with the demo page .xml dump file.

Cheers!

I couldn’t wait, so I bought it last night :) I’ll be using it shortly!

Have a quick question before I purchase. On the portfolio page I noticed you have to roll over an image which brings up a little white bar in the bottom portion. Then you have to click on the little icons to get to the page or posting for it. The bar can stay or whatever but my question is can I just make the whole image clickable for ease of use to my visitors?

Reason being is I would want to use the portfolio section for a product page where you just click and image to get to the next page to download a spec sheet and get more info on it.

Also, to add I love how the portfolio section is sortable. Would not want to lose that functionality. Do you have a support forums for your theme?

Thanks!

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

Yes, it’s possible to add a link to the whole image. It requires some minor changes in the code, but I can do it for you.

I offer support through this comments section and often through email.

Cheers!

Great so if I purchase this would I just email you about making that change? Thanks for you help!

SkatDesign

Yup, just send me a message through the contact form on my profile page and I’ll reply you on your email.

Cheers!

SkatDesign

2. Do you want to customize the homepage or the blog page?

Cheers!

Hello Ginaalessia,

Can you send me email too as voxana ask

and

I have additional questions :

1. When i install disqus plug-in -> its working but comment value its not working in blogpage

2. Can you guide me to Clone “Lastest Work Section” block – i want add another one like “our work, our client and etc.”

Thank you verymuch

SkatDesign

Hi there,

Go to the theme’s folder and edit the file named “three-columns-portfolio_page.php”.

On line 73 you’ll find this code:

<img src="<?php echo $image_url; ?>" alt="" title="" width="250" height="145" />

Replace it with this:

 <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><img src="<?php echo $image_url; ?>" alt="" title="" width="250" height="145" /></a>

1. WordPress is pulling the comments count from it’s commenting system so if you’re using a comment plugin it won’t show the comments count.

2. If you want to add additional sections like that you need to have so php/html/css skills. The theme only supports one portfolio section so you must make another one (keep just the styling of the existing one) and set the “other” sections to pull the items from the portfolio newly created.

Cheers!

This theme both looks very nice and appears to have a lot of flexibility. Question – is there a capability to do any sort of mega dropdowns with this theme.

Thanks.

SkatDesign

Hi there and thank you for your interest.

The theme does not support mega dropdowns by default but it could work with a plugin. Though, I’m not 100% sure and I do not guarantee it because I’ve never tested it.

Cheers!

I am wondering why are the slider images distorted when you re-size the page? Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response. I’m not sure your following me. I want the responsive design, the images in the slider are distorted (stretched, see screen shot http://dmrgraphics.net/tarryhere/screenshot.jpg), this is also the case in the demo of the theme.

I think it might be either a problem with the theme or something I did. Do you know what I am talking about when I say the images in the slider are stretched?

Thanks so much.

Default-user

Sorry when I pasted the screenshot URL in the last post it was wrong… http://dmrgraphics.net/tarryhere/screenshot.jpg

Default-user

I ended up using a responsive slider plugin that will work much better for what I need the slider to do (http://devpress.com/plugins/responsive-slider/). I’m not able to use video but this will work for me right now.

Hi, can I have paging on my gallery page? Could You please explain how do I use portfolio? I can’t get i work:-(

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. WP currently doesn’t support gallery pagination. Though, you can use a plugin to make it work. Here you can find more details:

http://wp.tutsplus.com/articles/tips-articles/quick-tip-paginate-your-wordpress-gallery/

2. Step 1

Create a new page (eg. Portfolio) and on the right of the page you’ll see a box called “Page Attributes”. From the option “Templates” select “3 Columns Portfolio”. Save and publish the page blank.

Step 2

Add items to the portfolio. Go to your WP dashboard > Portfolio > Add New. Insert your content and select the type of the item (image, audio or video). Set up a featured image on the right of the page. Publish. Done.

Cheers!

Please check your email :D

I have regarding question about 2 unique small slide box in homepage.

Thanks

Cheers too

Hi Gina! I wanted to see if you could tell me how to increase the space for a logo. I am using a logo that is larger then your demo, and when uploading, the logo now sits over top of the navigation bar. If you can let me know where I can increase the space so the logo fits properly I would greatly apprecaite it! Also.. is there a way I can add my own custom backgrounds instead of the ones that are included?

Thanks so much for your help!

SkatDesign

Hi there,

1. To change the height of the header go to the theme options page > Styling Options and paste this in the “Custom CSS ” box:


#header {
height: 140px;
}

140px is the default height. Adjust it to fit your needs.

2. For the logo margins paste this in the “Custom CSS ” box:


#site_title {
top: 35px;
left: 40px;
}

These are the default values. Adjust it to your needs.

3. To change the bg. you need to edit the images responsible for it. In the theme’s folder go to “images” folder and edit the files named: “body_bg.jpg” (for header and footer) and “html_bg.jpg” for the content bg. You can also find the css code responsible for the bg in the “styles” folder and editing the style-sheet you’re using (eg. blue.css) just at the beginning of the file.

Cheers!

Perfect! Thank you so much!!!

looking to add a title and divider line (just like the regular page title and divider line) on a page about half way down to separate the services. Is this possible? was looking for a divider line shortcode but the two divider shortcodes both seem to just be empty spaces. Please let me know. Thanks for your help!

SkatDesign

Go to the theme’s folder > styles and edit the style-sheet you’re using (eg. blue.css) Look for this code on line 2035:


background: url(../images/image_divider.png) repeat-x;

Replace it with this:

border-bottom: 1px solid #E8E8E8;

Save. Done.

Now, simply use the [divider type=”image”] shortcode.

Cheers!

Sorry to keep bothering you, but one last thing I am coming across. My home page is not showing. I’ve added the text from the file in the help folder, I’ve changes the template to homepage, and I’ve changed my settings> reading to show a static frontpage as home, but nothing is showing still. any thoughts on what I am doing wrong? thank you so much again for your help!!!

Default-user

sorry i missed that! That did it!

I added in my own icons for the home page intro area, but they are showing up as ””/”/”/” instead of the icon. when I add copy and paste the shortcode to a page, it showing up no problem. Any idea why it is showing as /”/” on the home page instead of the icon/picture? PM me if you need urls

SkatDesign

That’s happening because your php config. has the “Magic Quotes” enabled.

Just replied to your email with more detailed instructions & info.

Cheers!

Default-user

You are wonderful!!! Thank you SO MUCH !!!!

I wasn’t sure how to disable the magic quotes, but the line of code you sent me to replace did the trick!! Thank you so much again! Awesome theme! I’ll be getting your Gotham theme for my next project :)

5 STARS !!!
