Hey there!

Your template is great, looks awesome but I have a couple of questions:

1. The logo I need to use has colors, so I’ll need the background of the container to be white. If I change it through “Secondary Styling” other things (like the slider’s arrows) go white as well and looks bad. How can I change just the background color of the logo? 2. I’m trying to create a Portfolio Slider as shown in the Demo. According to the documentation I have to create a classic wp gallery, which I did, and I have the pictures in a slider, but it doesn’t explain how to have the white rectangle with the title and text over each picture as shown. Could you explain me how to do it? 3. The Staff is only one person in my case, but it only gives me the option of creating a 3 staff column. How can I have just 1 column and next to it some text?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your help! Everything is working now. I’ve got another issue: I have a Blog section, so I created two posts and added to the menu a custom link with the Navigation Label “Blog” and URL “http://www.myweb.com.au/blog”, but when I click nothing happens. Even though, if I go directly to that url it work fine and I can see in the html the created. What is going on? The same happens with Home, in which case I added to the menu the “Home” page, but if I click it I would like it to go to the top, but it doesn’t do anything.

Thanks again!

Dannci

Hello,

- for blog link add ‘external’ class to that link – process is described in documentation (use it for all links to other pages/posts)

- for ‘home’ menu item use #home as link (will scroll to the top)

Thanks

yaaay! Everything works perfectly. Thanks a lot!

I recently purchased this theme and I am having problems installing it. Using Wordpress 3.9.1

(1) when i try and upload the zip file it says… “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

(2) when i walk through the steps listed on http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269 ... i.e. extracting it and uploading the folder via my ftp site I get “Template is missing.”

(3) When i trying unzipping and rezipping just the Donation folder, that doesn’t work either.

So i’m not sure what I should do… this is the 1st time i have dealt with a file/template that does not have any php files within it…

Default-user

i also tried upload the Documentation folder via FTP and i get the same error. I dont have a file within called inside

Please send me your ‘wp login’ to my email: info[at]dannci.com

Hi

How can I change the order of Layout items on home page? i am using your default format but want to change the order of items…

Thanks Tolga

Dannci

Hello,

you can re-order homepage items by changing publish time or date.

Thank you

I find the directions AKA “index” provided with this template are not substantial for a first time user. as a matter of fact I had to post a comment here just to find the directions AKA index….. Or wait a minute perhaps that is why they arent called directions, because they dont help, are full of vague descriptions and generic steps abbreviated so much that you often have to email danci and wait half a day or a full day for a single response.

Dannci

???

1. set Homepage template as frontpage,

2. create few ‘Slider’ post (with featured imag).

3. create homepage sections – ‘Layout’ posts – in ‘layout options’ set unique anchor (clients, portfolio etc.)

4. after that you can create other custom posts (Portfolio, Services, Staff, Clients etc. ) and output these posts using ‘shortcodes’ in ‘Layouts’ (created in step 3.)

All custom post types (Slider, Layout, Portfolio, Services, Staff etc. ) can be accessed and created in dashboard: http://prntscr.com/3no44u

5. create custom ‘scroll menu’ and add scroll links for sections/layouts created in previous step. Add links in # + anchor format (#clients, #portfolio etc.)

All these steps are described (more detailed and with screenshots) in documentation (index.html in ‘documentation’ folder)

Thank you

Default-user

Again description is in shorthand, For example when you say in point 3. “create homepage sections – ‘Layout’ posts – in ‘layout options’” how is this done? and then in point 5 you say “Add links in # + anchor format (#clients, #portfolio etc.) how is this done? and BTW if I do both as you describe in this shorthand direction It duplicates each page and I have 2 of every one.

So please dont insult me with more shorthand descriptions, and ??? to my questions, Ive also sent you many of these questions with out a response.

Dannci

My dear, I have sent around 20 messages to you describing and explaining every single problem you had. If this is insulting to you, I cannot help you anymore. I have been trying to help you as much as I can sending you print screens with highlighted areas, arrows where to put/add/delete something, where to click, what to write in particular fields and you either did not do it at all or kept asking the same. We have send to each other more than 50 messages and you are still dissatisfied calling all instructions I give you vague, useless and late. I am really sorry but I will not write to you again, I cannot comment on this anymore.

Hi there – a quick pre-purchase question. I like your theme but I can’t see the proper parallax effect in the demo, just the static background images moving up/down at the same pace as the rest of page… Is the parallax (slower movement of bg images) switched off in the demo version? Thanks, Tom

Default-user

Thanks for your response! I’ve bought it already, looks nice! I’ve imported one of the xml files to make the start easier, but can’t work out how to display the portfolio filters (Architecture, etc), so I could sort the content of the Latest From Folio section… I’m pretty sure it’s straightforward, but I’d appreciate your help :)

Dannci

Hello,

lists your portfolio posts into portfolio categories: http://prntscr.com/45t42e

Then you can use [portfolio_filter_3] or [portfolio_filter_4] and filter menu will be added automatically.

Thanks

Thank you! No further questions :)

Hi there. Beautyful theme. I’d like to know, does this has a way to build our own pages? Like Page Builder or Custom Templates builder?

Thanks.

Default-user

Thanks for your response. :)

Default-user

So, is there a way to change element order or element contents on the homepage?

Dannci

Hello,

you can reorder layout easily – just change publish time/date for partial homepage sections (Layout posts).

Thank you

Hi Dannci, My question is about “Featured Works”. I want to select a few projects of my portfolio but not chronologically. If I write [slider_featured category=”aaaaa, bbbbb” posts_number=”4”] only display the last four projects. How can I solve the problem? Thank you Gema

Dannci

But that is not possible (in general), you can feature/set only category(s) and number of post. If you need select concrete works create additional category – only for “feature purposes”

Thank you Dannci. I understand it. Nice theme.

Hi There, I’ve selected the full width template on a number of pages to arrange them much like the demo/preview mock-up site you have but it seems to remain in the default view with the vertical borders on either side. Is there something I’m missing? I want to have the full width.

Let me know.

Thanks, Graham

Here’s the site I’m working on: Christinejmoss.com

Dannci

Hello,

do you mean pages like this: http://christinejmoss.com/recipes/ ?

On that page is used ‘Full width’ template, just set ‘fetaured image’ for that page and add some content/texts.

You have increased ’.section_template’ in style-custom.css. Isn’t it?

Thank you

Hi Dannci, I’ve two questions more:

1- Can I delete the pages navigation at the bottom of “LATEST FORM FOLIO” (in my web it calls “ÚLTIMOS”)? I want to display only 6 works of the 78 that I have, and I need to delete the numbers navigation. Please, take a look: http://www.poema-projects.com/web/

2- In the external page “All works”, the button “Previous Project”, “Back to Portfolio” and “Next Project” display All works. Is it possible to display only the projects about the category selected? Please take a look: http://www.poema-projects.com/web/myportfolio/nike-2014/

Hi, I’ve solved my previous question on my own but I can’t seem to stack the sections of the home page. I saw another post alluding to some documentation for instructions. I’m not sure if I missed this because I don’t see any instructions. I build a lot of websites but I’m not a developer so I’m finding the labels on your fields a bit counter-intuitive. However, from what I can tell it appears that I need to use shortcodes to setup the sections of the homepage. Is that right? Are these other wordpress admin sections “portfolio”, “slider” or “services” involved somehow? Thanks for your help in advance!!

Dannci

Hello,

From http://themeforest.net/downloads download ‘All files & Documentation’ .zip file. In this (downloaded) zip file is documentation folder. Unzip it and open index.html

Quick setup:

1. set Homepage template as frontpage,

2. create few ‘Slider’ post (set ‘featured images’ for these posts).

3. create homepage sections = ‘Layout’ posts – in ‘layout options’ set unique anchor (clients, portfolio etc.)

4. after that you can create other custom posts (Portfolio, Services, Staff, Clients etc. ) and output these posts using ‘shortcodes’ in ‘Layouts’ (created in step 3.)

All custom post types (Slider, Layout, Portfolio, Services, Staff etc. ) http://prntscr.com/3no44u

5. create custom ‘scroll menu’ and add scroll links for sections/layouts created in previous step. Add links in # + anchor format (#clients, #portfolio etc.)

Default-user

Do you have a tutorial video? I’m confused. It’s as if I need to have a slider post, layout post and a portfolio/services/staff/clients post for every parallax section I want on the homepage? Plus a customization to the menu? Suffice it to say, this seems like a tricky process and I don’t want to miss anything. Thanks!

Dannci

Hello, no video tutorial is not available.

But it is very easy:

- if you want have main slider > create slider posts

- if you want to have portfolio > create portfolio posts > display on the homepage with shortcode

- if you want to have services > create service posts > display on the homepage with shortcode

- if you want to have clients> create client posts > display on the homepage with shortcode

etc.

Plus a customization to the menu? – sorry I’m not sure what you mean. You can create any custom menu.

Thank you

Hi Dannci,

I have set up my website but am experiencing one major issue. I have four different layout sections with gallery sliders in them to display some images. The problem is that clicking the thumbnails only works on the most recently published post. The rest scroll down when you click on a thumbnail, and then sometimes, the entire gallery disappears when you scroll back up. Is there a way to fix this?

Please check it out and you will see what I am referring to: http://www.lindsaygonzalez.com

I didn’t see any other posts about this issue so I hope you can help me out. Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Dannci

Hello Lindsay,

slider with thumbnails can be used only one time per page. You can use the sliders multiple times but you need to hide small thumbs and use slider arrows only.

You can hide thumbs with this css code

.tmnf_slideshow_thumbnails{ display:none;}

Thanks

Default-user

Hi Dannci,

Thank you for the information and for helping me hide the thumbnails. When I originally found your theme I really wanted to have a few of these posts on the front page, and did not know that I would not be able to have the thumbnails. It does not look very good without them because a user cannot tell that there are multiple images to scroll through for each section. Is it possible to adjust some of the code so that the thumbnails work multiple times on the page? I really hope we can make this work. I had a friend of mine who is a developer try to customize it to do that, but we could not figure out a way.

Thanks, Lindsay

Dannci

Hello,

I’ve tried to add this “multiple” functionality before theme release. But it is not possible with thumbnails. Gallery code (generated by wp core) is not very flexible.

Thank you

Hi there,

first of all: I like the template a lot ;)

But I have 2 problems / questions: 1. the biggest problem is that, i guess its after updating wordpress, the button for the shortcode generator is missing.. how can i get it back for use

2. is it possible to use buttons/icons instead of text in the top menu?

Thanks for support

Dannci

Hello and thank you!

1. you need to update theme too; here is “how to”: http://themeforest.net/item/inside-creative-parallax-and-scroll-theme/6368314/faqs/21386

2. you can add icons (font awesome) to menu; please look ‘Theme Icons’ chapter in documentation

Thank you

Hi there,

Is there a way to change the timing on the main slider on the homepage? So currently it is set to around 9/10 seconds per slide but we’d like to take this down to around 5.

Thanks to anyone for your help regarding this.

Regards, Iain

Dannci

Hello,

you can change slider timing ( slideshowSpeed ) in …js/jquery.flexslider.start.main.js file.

Thanks

Default-user

Perfect, works a treat. Just wasn’t sure which file to change.

Thanks very much

Hi Dannci,

Another quick one… is there any way to make images that are added within the text area responsive on a full width page, as currently it doesn’t resize as the text does.

Here’s a link to the page in question: http://www.thinkcreative.uk.com/?page_id=648

Many thanks in advance

Dannci

Hi,

your code is not valid on that page. Image is not inside first column (shortcode).

Default-user

Perfect answer again and very quick response.

Thanks very much :)

Hi There, I’m looking at buying your theme and wonder if you can answer a couple of questions please..

1. have you tested woocommerce

2. does the Logo – banner size increase in length depending on what size image or wording you insert.

3. can I add a full width video to the home page header slider and if not I take it I can embed a width video somewhere in the home page?

thank you

Dannci

Hello and thank you for your interest.

1. yes, theme is woocommerce compatible

2. yes, you can use wider logo or use site title

3. you can add (embed) full width video into main slider.

Thank you

Default-user

Great Thank you for your speedy reply and I look forward to working with your theme

Dannci

Cool, thank you.

Hello again..

is it possible to set a color (logo background) that is different from the menu and the portfolio buttons?

i need to use a logo with a white background, but when i choose white as color you couldn t read the text in menu etc.

when i try to use just a logo icon in the menu i always have coloured parts in the back of the image..

Dannci

Hello,

add following css code into style-custom.css

#header img, #header h1{ background-color:#fff !important;}

Thanks

Hi there, great theme! :)

Im adding images to the single portfolio page (as I want a different thumb nail on the front page) but I really need them to be responsive, how can I do this please? Please see here: http://bit.ly/VCZrOe

Many thanks :)

Dannci
Oh sorry, use
.entry_item img {  max-width: 100%;}

instead.

Thanks

Perfect!! Ive got to say, your support response times are excellent!! Theme is amazing and the admin is great – keep up the good work Dannci!! :D

Hi, is there any way to make the pixel height of the logo and nav bar taller? I can see you can make the logo wider but I have a logo that needs to be taller to be more legible.

Thanks

Roy

Dannci

Hello,

you can edit height limitation in style-custom.css file; look for ’ #header img ‘

Thank you

Hi,

I’ve almost finished to create my site, by the way, I have a question about the share buttons plugin. When I want to share a portfolio page, there’s no image in my link to Facebook. Do you know how I can add an default image, like you in the demo theme ?

Thank you Francisco
