Discussion on Kanso - Clean One-Page Parallax WordPress Theme

60 comments found

Hello! want to buy the theme but first need some questions solved before. 1. The site is for a photgraphy agency showing various artists. I need the portfolios to open as lightbox but to show several images. Then if the user wants to go further, maybe a button that sends you to the proyect page. And once here I would like to have pages with out the right sidebar info. Just a plain page with the images as a slider and a description text. If this is possible I’m a buyer!!! the theme looks great by the way. Cheers!!

Hey Graphicnomad,

thank you for expressing interest in my work!

I will answer the questions in the same order:

1). The “image” format projects do have lightbox overlays which display larger images (you can click on the “Ninth Wave” project in the Kanso demo portfolio to get a feel of it).

2). There is no scrolling between images in the lightbox in Kanso. However, I it implemented in Ikebana, my other theme, which is better suited for graphic portfolios.

3). The “image” format projects do not link projects, only display image overlays on mouse click; however, technically it should not be a difficult customization.

4). The sidebars on individual projects are optional – you can have full-width, left-sidebar, or right-sidebar layout on any particular project.

An alternative to the “image” format” would be the “gallery” format, which displays a slider inside the portfolio tile; you can also click on the slider and be taken to the individual project page, where the full-size slider will appear. You can see a demo here.

Should you have additional questions about the theme, do not hesitate to ask!

Hi there,

How can I change font size from the WP editor?

Default-user

also!

how do you set up the map short code for the contact page like in the demo?

satoridesign

Hey Ferodri09,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

I will go over the questions in the same order:

1). the font size of the internal WP editor can be changed by adding respective CSS to the “admin-styles.css” theme file, e.g.:
.wp-editor-area { font-size: 18px !important; }

2). The map in the demo is just an image :) however, from version 1.4 of the theme you can add a Google Maps embed as a separate page using the “Google Maps” page template.

Hi Satori,

Just a quick question. I’ve created a multi page site using the theme and have made my home page the portfolio. Below the portfolio section, I would like to display the blog posts using the display_posts shortcode but have not been able to get it to come up, however the shortcode will work on other pages. Any ideas why this is not working or how I can achieve this?

Thank you in advance,

Oli

Hey Oli,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Please download the archive here that I’ve prepared for you, unzip it, and upload the resulting files: - “style.css” into the main theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Kanso) - “shortcodes.css” into the following folder: /wp-content/plugins/shortcodes/lib

After that the shortcode will work better; please also note the following: 1). In case there’s an excerpt defined in Kanso, the portfolio page content will not be displayed. 2). The content of the page is displayed above the project grid.

Given the above, I thought I’d prepare another file for you, a slightly customized version of the “page_portfolio.php” that inserts the content below the grid and does not depend on the excerpt. Please download this archive, unzip it, and upload the resulting file into the main theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Kanso).

Let me know if this helps achieve what you’re after.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi Satrori,

Thankyou for taking the time to look into this for me, unfortunately the display_post shortcode now seems to be pulling only the content from the final portfolio post above it.

I’ve tested using the new shortcode you wrote for me with the display content code above the portfolio with no excerpt and it functions correctly.

Sorry for the hassle. If you have any other ideas that would be appreciated.

Hey Oli,

I will need to ask for access to the back-end in order to troubleshoot this one – if the website is available online, please send your login information to support@satoristudio.net (no disclosure guaranteed). Thank you!

Hi there,

First of all > great theme, i really love working with it! I didn’t encounter any big problems while setting up my website, and it’s almost finished.

There’s only one strange thing going on > on mobile devices (ipad /iphone) there is some code visible on top of all the pages > how do i get rid of this?

Under here you can check a screenshot i took on my ipad … http://www.kinelisp.be/downloads/codevisible.PNG

Thanks in advance for your reply! Greetings from belgium,

Kath

satoridesign

Hey Kath,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

The code from the screenshot suggests it is most probably a Google Analytics snippet – please tell me if you are using any third-party plugins that integrate Google Analytics, or if you’ve filled the “Analytics” tab of the Theme Options panel, then with what exactly. Thanks!

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

Hi Andrii,

Thanks for your fast reply, i found the solution due to your answer > i pasted the script in the box instead of the tracking ID number > all is OK now! :)

Thanks again!

Hey Kath,

glad to hear that you’ve solved the problem! Should you face any other issues with the theme or have questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Great theme, I have an issue with URLs not working properly though.

The FAQ has a URL – /faq – but when I use that URL it takes me to the “email” page. This happens on almost all of the URLs… any help would be great.

satoridesign

Hey Joshua,

Before we proceed, I will need to ask for your purchase code for verification purposes; this is a standard procedure for every user of the themes and is meant to counter illicit copying. Please log into your ThemeForest account and go to your “Downloads” page. Locate the theme you purchased in your “Downloads” list and click on the “License Certificate” link next to the download link. After you have downloaded the certificate you can open it in a text editor such as Notepad and copy the Item Purchase Code.

Apart from that, could you please provide the URL of your website in question, that would greatly expede the troubleshooting.

Thanks for your patience!

Best,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Hey SatoriDesign, This is joshualeffingwell, I bought this with my work account – so here is my purchase info. 406a8f0e-dbaa-4564-b7f9-6318c95a586f

Here is question again for your assistance: The FAQ has a URL – /faq – but when I use that URL it takes me to the “email” page. This happens on almost all of the URLs… any help would be great.

The URL is www.westmichiganwatertrail.com – the issue is with all the URLs – if you go to www.westmichiganwatertrail.com/faq or /about, /team, /meetings it directs to the “email” page, if you go to www.westmichiganwatertrail.com/email it goes to the “about” page.

satoridesign

Hey Joshua,

thank you for the verification!

The URL issue stems from the fact that all pages that constitute the sections of the one-page layout have also been declared as “One-Page” templates; the one-page template in Kanso works quite similarly to the native WordPress blog page: there’s one “shell” page that hosts the sections; only the “shell” page should have the “one-page” template declared for it, the other pages that comprise the sections should have any other template (“Default”, “Blog”, “Portfolio”, etc). Please try changing the templates for the pages that constitute the sections (i.e. “Faq”, “Email”, etc) using the “Page Attributes” settings box in the right part of the page editor screen, and the URLs should start working properly. Let me know if the problem still persists after changing the page templates!

Hey – Purchased the theme last week. Was wondering if there is a way to load the theme so it is setup with all the sample content/architecture we see on the example live sample of the theme? This setup fits closely with what I’ll be creating, so would be easier to use this, than trying to recreate it.

satoridesign

Hey Scott,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

There is a demo content file included with the theme package, found in the “Resources” folder inside the main downloadable archive – this allows you to import the exact pages, posts, and their content (incl. images) from the Kanso demo. Please use the “Tools -> Import” admin section for importing the demo content; you can find additional information on the topic on page 14 of the theme manual (the “Importing Demo Content” chapter).

Should you face difficulties in the process, do not hesitate to contact me!

I am wondering how to give the menu scroll an easing effect.

<!- Smooth scrolling -> <script type=”text/javascript”> var $ml = jQuery.noConflict(); $ml(document).ready(function(){ $ml(’.nav-smooth .main-menu a’).smoothScroll( { speed: 1000, offset: -75, }); }); </script>

Default-user

I tried your script for the easing and it breaks the websites navigation

satoridesign

Hey Ferodri09,

regarding the image rendering on iPhones: please try un-checking the “Parallax header” option in the “Page Settings” box while in the page editor mode for the affected pages; you can also try setting the “Parallax velocity” value to 0.1 in the “Page Elements” tab of the Theme Options panel.

Regarding the custom code for the easing effect of the page scroller: I can take a look at why it is not working, provided that you can give me access to the WP admin – you can send the login and password information to support@satoristudio.net.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

I did uncheck the parallax on page settings, and the problem it’s still there. Im gonna send you the information for the website.

Hi

When viewing on a mobile device the words of the page titles are broken up, like so:

http://alistairstrachan.co.uk/temp/pagetitle.png

How would I fix it so that they remain on the same line? I’ve tried searching for breakword and page-title container, but to no avail.

Nice theme!

Alistair

satoridesign

Hey Alistair,

first of all, thank you for the purchase, and my apologies for the slow reply! Indeed, the headings behave not very well in this case; I’ve prepared a fix – please download this archive, unzip it, and upload into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Kanso/), replacing the existing files.

Let me know if the bug persists after the update!

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

Thanks – working now

Is there a way I can add to the auto-generated menu a page that is not part of the One Page setup?

Default-user

I did it with:

jQuery(".menu-container ul").append()');
satoridesign

Hey David,

alternatively, you can update the theme to version 1.5 – following user requests I’ve included an option to add items to the menu that lead outside of the one-page layout (such menu items can be added by creating a menu in the “Appearance -> Menus” admin section and assigning it to the main menu theme position.

Hi

Having a couple of anomalies:

1) Changing Body font size in Theme Options/Typography doesn’t affect the font size.

2) For some reason the fonts aren’t displaying properly on the Revolution slider. They were working fine a few days ago, but now they appear small, with lines of text on top of each other on the site, even though they display fine when I’m in the Edit Slide area.

Any advice most appreciated!

satoridesign

Hey Alistair,

I will go over the issues in the same order:

1). I’ve tested the font size option on a fresh theme install, and it seems to be working fine – could you please provide the URL of the website in question (in case you do not wish to make it public, you can send me the details to support@satoristudio.net). Please change the body font size to some non-default value as well so that I could look at what happens in the code. Thanks!

2). Please tell me if you’ve done any changes to the website before the slider text became that way? I will look at the code and will be able to tell more in case it is possible to provide the URL of the website, as requested above.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi Andrii

I am using Roboto as the google font in Theme Options/Typography for the body text, but I can’t see how to define the weight. I want to use Thin 100 – http://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Roboto

I have defined it int he css like so:

main-container {

padding: 0; position: relative; font-weight: 100; }

and this does make some difference, but I don’t think it is the Thin 100 version.

http://the-scout.com/

Any thoughts?

Thank you

Alistair

satoridesign

Hey Alistair,

you’re right, the font does not render the 100 thickness correctly; this is due to the fact that I’ve omitted the “100” and “200” styles from the Google Font embed code – sorry for that! I’ve prepared a fix, please download this archive, unzip it, and upload the resulting file into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Kanso/), replacing the existing file. Let me know if the font is now rendering as intended!

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

Ye – that works – thank you Andrii!

satoridesign

Great! I will include this fix into the next version update as well, thanks for bringing this up!

Hey Chris,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

To provide a meaningful solution, I would need to see the website and the slider settings – could you please provide access to your back-end, in case the website is available online. You can send the URL, login, and password to support@satoristudio.net (no disclosure guaranteed).

After installing the theme, I am unable to install any of the required plugins. It’s giving me a message that “The plugin does not have a valid header.” Any thoughts?

satoridesign

Hey Natroneous008,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Have you tried installing and activating the plugins via the “Plugins” admin section? If you cannot see the plugins in the above mentioned section, please try unzipping them and uploading the resulting folders via FTP into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory inside your WP installation, and afterwards going to the “Plugins” section and activating them there. Please let me know if any of the above helps resolve the situation!

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

In the Plugins panel it says “This theme recommends installing the following pre-packaged plugins: Advanced Recent Posts, Advanced SEO, Contact Form, Custom Sidebars, Revolution Slider, Shortcodes, Social media Widget and Twitter Widget.”

But when I try to install any of them I get a failure with this message “The plugin does not have a valid header.”

I also noticed that I can’t delete plugins like Hello Dolly, so I’m thinking its a permissions thing on my server. Thanks though.

It’s a great looking theme and I’m excited to get started with it!

satoridesign

Hey Natroneous008,

have you managed to solve this issue and install the plugins? If not, please try setting the permissions on the “wp-content/plugins/” folder inside your WP installation to “777”, i.e. both writable and readable.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

OK, separate questions. Everything else seems to be working fine now, but my logo won’t show up. I even tried using the Kanso logo, but it still didn’t work. Any thoughts?

Default-user

nevermind. When I added the url to the logo manually it worked, just not using the upload button.

satoridesign

Hey Natroneous008,

I apologize for the slow reply!

As noted, on page 3 of the theme manual, sometimes the WordPress may prevent the Theme Options panel from properly settings the URL of the image by setting its attachment path instead. In this case the „File URL” field displays an attachment URL (ending with „?attachment_id=xx”), and you need to press the „File URL” button below the url field so that the link is a direct url of the image file (ends with the filename of the uploaded file). Once you’ve done this once, WordPress should remember the setting and add proper URLs in the future.

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

Still having a few issues. For example, if you go to my site: http://www.tcgad.com/2014/ and click on one of the portfolio items, it can’t find it. Any thoughts?

satoridesign

Hey Natroneous008,

I will need to see your back-end to find a solution to this issue – you can send me your WP admin login details to support@satoristudio.net (no disclosure guaranteed). Thanks!

Sincerely,
Andrii / Satori Studio

On my portfolio page, it is showing a heading that says “This is a showcase for your creative work – design, video, photography, you name it. Amaze the world!”

I can’t for the life of me find a way to change or hide it. Can you please help?

Thank you!

satoridesign

Hey Natroneus008,

this text is being sourced from the excerpt of the respective page; in case the excerpts box is not displayed, click on the „Screen Options“ tab in the top right corner of the screen, and tick the „Excerpt“ checkbox.

Andrii / Satori Studio

Default-user

Ha! That was the only one I didn’t have showing – THANK YOU!

And great theme!!

Pre-purchase question -

Is it possible to have a transparent header on the slider but have the sticky header fade in a white background on white. Essentially have the slider start from the top of the page with the logo and nav ‘floating; above the slider.

Any help is much appreciated

satoridesign

Hey Jonathan,

first of all, thank you for the purchase! My aplogies for the forum login, I am working on getting it back online. Meanwhile, we can discuss the issue here or by email (support@satoristudio.net). Could you please describe in more detail the steps you’ve taken to install the theme, and the error message you’ve received (if any). Thanks!

JonathanMurphy

I sent you an email just checking to see if you have received it – thanks

satoridesign

Hey Jonathan,

I’ve replied to your email right now; my apologies for the delay, I was searching for the possible advice to you, since the issue does not really concern the theme itself.

Hello! Does this theme come with shortcodes for data tables as well as pricing tables? i am planning to create a website with a page with performance data, which ideally would be best represented with a data table.

Thanks

satoridesign

Hey Migster_Magoo,

thank you for expressing interest in Kanso! The theme does not include pricing tables or data tables out-of-the-box; you can use any of the available third-party free or premium plugins (e.g. this one from WP.org) to integrate this functionality into the theme.

Should you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me!
