I would like to purchase your theme and want to check a few things first as I have had problems with other themes using too much memory resources on my hosting account.
Do you use timthumb or some other image resizer? The problem I have is my hosting account limits memory usage to 512mb and a current theme I am using is exceeding this usage with 4 thumbnail images being redrawn via timthumb so the images randomly appear and sometimes don’t appear. I would prefer to create fixed size thumbs and avoid the use of timthumb altogether.
Karma has 2 built-in image resizing options. One is a PHP-based script that uses very similar functionality as the default WordPress resizing and the other is TimThumb.
TimThumb will only get “activated” if you choose to use an image that is not uploaded into your Media Library.
You can also completely bypass the image resizing by uploading an image that is already re-sized to the proper dimensions.
Please let us know if there’s anything else we can help with.
Is it possible to reduce the size (portrait thumbnail) – 275px x 355px
Yes this is indeed possible however it will require making coding modifications to your theme.
Please check out this post on our KnowledgeBase for more details about editing the default theme: http://bit.ly/GDOzoz
I hope this is helpful for you.
Cheers my friend
Im having problem with the portfolio page. By clicking the thumbnail of featured image of the post, a bigger view should pop up. But instead its showing a message “image can not be loaded. make sure the path is correct and image exixt”.
It’s likely that the image path is simply incorrect.

Hi, just a short question before we buy your theme.
In the portolio/gallery section, is it possible to have the image or video link (when clicking on the image) to navigate to the post instead of open image/thumbnail in full size in “pretty photo” etc.
Thanks so much for your interest in Karma. To answer your question, Yes this is indeed possible. Each portfolio/gallery item can be linked to any outside link instead of a lightbox popup. There is a customer “Link this image” box on the post page where you simply enter the URL you’d like it to go and you’re all set.
I hope this helps.
Thanks a lot !
I’m interested in purchasing this theme. If I want to manually resize my images to fit the image frames is there a way to disable thumbnail creation? I’ve found it can often negatively affect the sharpness of my images and this is a deciding factor for me. Thank you!
Thanks so much for your interest in Karma.
The answer to your questions is “yes”.
The image resizing script will be automatically “disabled” if you upload images that are of the proper dimensions. For example, if you’d like to insert a half-width image frame on your webpage, the image dimensions for this frame is 437px x 234px. To disable the frame you would simply upload an image which is already 437px x 234px, and the resizing script will not be “activated”.
I hope this is helpful for you. Please feel free to give us a shout with any further questions.
Hmm, well I don’t want to deactivate the frame, just the thumbnail generation!
Very sorry about any confusion – didn’t mean to say deactivate the “frame”.
So just to clarify, if you upload an image which is already the proper dimensions, the image will be displayed within the image frame, and the resizing script will have no effect on the image.
Very sorry for any confusion. Hope this clears things up.
Thanks so much
Sorry! I added a ticket!
Everything is working nicely on our end so it is likely a small item causing the image not to load. We are happy to look into this and resolve your issue. We’ll just need to log into the site and have a closer look behind the scenes.

Hello, interested in purchasing your Theme…. Is this one BTW your best and most featureful Theme? Couple of questions.
1. Does this theme allow you to designate a Lightbox to ALL videos and images? For example, often whether on the HomePage or elsewhere, the “thumbed” picture or video will be linked to the actual post. I would prefer all media to open in a Lightbox, and if people want to go to the article, they can simply click on the link that’s already there in the Title, whatever.
2. Can you instead of opening in a Lightbox, also designate certain posts to actually “play” in the image box itself, i.e., and audio, a video, flash, etc.?
3. Your Shortcode Generator seems like it works in the “Visual” Tab of creating a post, is that correct? Does it not work in the HTML section where it should, so the code doesn’t mess up the text as viewed in the Visual tab?
Here’s some info that should help to shed some light on your questions:
1. All media is opened within the Lightbox itself. The “description” below the ’thumbnail image’ can have links/text etc that can link anywhere you specify. This is true for the “Gallery” page template as well as the Lightbox Shortcodes.
2. Lightbox items can only be played within the actual Lightbox itself.
3. The Shortcode Manager displays only in the Visual Editor. This was done so that the HTML editor is not bombarded with the 100+ shortcodes. Switching between Visual and HTML view has no effect at all on the shortcodes. All shortcodes will still function properly.
I hope this information was helpful for you. Please feel free to give us a shout if you have any questions at all.
How to get the homepage shows like the live demo? Not the one that shows on thumbnails item? I like the white background behind sliders. Mine right now is half white and half blue from the header menu.

Thanks for everything once again.
Is there a way, in portfolio galleries, to have the thumbnails at full resolution? My images that I upload are greatly distorted. There is a quality loss.

Is it possible to group the images of a gallery in albuns (sub-galleries)?
We’re not quite certain we fully understand your question but here is some information that will hopefully be helpful.
If you are referring to having multiple galleries, this is indeed possible. A gallery is technically a “page” so you can create an unlimited amount of galleries. If you are referring to having multiple images within a single “popup” this is unfortunately not currently available.
I hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to give us a shout if you have any further questions.
Ok, thanks for your response. I think that’s what I wanted, but just to be sure, let me make an example (just trying to be clear):
I want to upload a photo called “tennis.jpg” in an album called “sports”.
When I enter the Gallery page, there will be thumbnails for all the albuns: “sports”, “fashion”, etc..
If I click on the thumb for the “sports” album, then it will open a page with a gallery with the photo “tennis.jpg” and any other photo in this album.
One question please.
I’ve seen that you have a shortcode that shows up some blog elements. You can choose one column, 2,3 or 4 and I’ve seen that all images will be resized to fill the placeholder.
Have I correctly understood? Every image will autoresize itself to cover placeholder?
In addition, is it possible to specify which posts will be shown, for example from one or more category or from one or more posts ID, etc?
I’ve not seen a list of parameter for blog shortcode. I think it shoulde be very usefull (at least for me!)
I need to be shure that blog functionality could cover all my needs.
Thanks in advance for your time.
Thanks a lot for your interest in Karma.
As per your questions…..The post thumbnails of each post will be auto-resized to fit nicely into the image frames. You can set the column layout, the amount of posts to display, the post category to pull from (will pull from all categories if not specified), the character count, and the text for the “read more” button.
I hope this is helpful for you. Please feel free to give us a shout anytime if you have any further questions.
Firstly the work you have done is absolutely incredible. This theme seems to cover all my needs and beyond But I have no skills in coding so I have a few questions?
1. Blog – in the blog is there a way to sort/navigate the posts: latest posts, recent comments and archive? It’s quite a handy tool when reading blogs.
2. Homepage – how can I ad blog posts on to the home page? I can see there are posts on the footer section, but I’d like to use thumbnails and position the posts above the footer.
3. Subgalleries – how can I make subcategories form the galleries?
Is there a way to make the image thumbnails clickable or can I make the tags link to the subgallery?
4. How can I change the image of the header and the background?
Thanks so much for the kind words. As per your questions:
1. Yes this can be done using widgets. There is an ‘Archives’ widget, a ‘Recent Posts’ widget, and a ‘Recent Comments’ widget. You will simply drag these widhets into the Blog Page Sidebar.
2. You can add recent posts to any page with only a mouse click using the built in short code manager. You can choose from multiple different layout configurations. Here is a screenshot that shows the various configurations: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7008416/karma-blog-posts.png
3. You can create as many galleries as you’d like. Creating a gallery is simply a matter of adding posts to a particular category, and then choosing that category to display in the gallery page template. You can link gallery items to the lightbox popup or to an external link, so if you wante to link to another page you would simply input the URL of that page.
4. This can be done with some minor CSS changes. We can provide more detailed instructions if you need them.
I hope this information is helpful for you.
Hi there, first off, wonderful theme and absolutely thorough documentation!
I am running into one minor snag which I can’t make heads or tails of. On my test space, the entire theme ran without a hitch. Now that I’ve moved the theme to my live blog, there is one minor odd thing. The featured images do not resize and crop as they did on the test space.
As you can see, the images are distorted to fit into the image boxes. Any idea why they behave this way? I’ve already tried to disable all plugins to see whether it was a conflict issue, but that didn’t do the trick.
Thanks so much for the kind words. We’re happy you like the theme.
As per the images, you may need to “regenerate” the images in your media library. This will ensure that the custom image dimensions are in place.
You can regenerate thumbnails with only a few mouse clicks using the ‘regenerate thumbnails’ plugin. Please check out this link on or forums for more details: http://support.truethemes.net/entries/20015961-my-thumbnails-are-not-resized-correctly
If you require further assistance please kindly post any new questions our support forums: http://support.truethemes.net
Does anyone know if you can make items in the jQuery slider clickable? For example, the title or the thumbnail? Having a lot of trouble with this, couldn’t find any answers on the theme’s site. Thank you for your help!
The jQuery image can be made clickable using the “Link This Image” field. Please visit this post on our support forum for complete instructions: http://support.truethemes.net/entries/20122646-how-can-you-make-a-jquery-slider-image-clickable

Have an awesome day.
I added images to a four column section of the homepage as described here:
However, this causes the full size images to be used, rather than the appropriate generated thumbnails – i.e. blah.jpg instead of blah-190×111.jpg, in this case.
Should the shortcode not automatically grab the correct thumbnail version?

Having a major problem with this theme…can you please help!
I tried renaming the thumbs.php file (as documented on this site: http://support.truethemes.net/entries/516297-thumbnails-iis7) but still no success.
Have an awesome day
Is it possible to have a UI within the gallery so the user can change the sorting by date or by name?
Can you add a page layout for me to list the categories in the page with thumbnail for each categories?
Hi, I really love the look of the theme but I was wondering if it is possible to link the gallery items to an external page so that it opens in a new window – not a lightbox. I still want to be able to use a thumbnail and have the styling and mouseover transition – but I don’t want it to link to an image or video. I want it to open a new window with a flash slideshow.
I know you can open an iframe in a lightbox but I don’t like it. I prefer a separate window.
Also, is it possible to change the opacity of the mousover effect. I would like it to be more subtle.
Thanks a lot for your interest in Karma. Linking to an outside page instead of a lightbox is not currently built into the theme. You can certainly link to outside pages using the regular image frame shortcodes, but just not the gallery page images. If it’s an absolute requirement for the project, you can certainly tweak the code to achieve your desired effect. As per the rollover, this can easily be adjusted to the opacity of your liking.
I hope this is helpful if you. If You have any further questions please kindly post them on our support forums: http://support.truethemes.net
What a bummer… The methods you stated to fix the timthumb issue didn’t work. I’m certain I’ve used timthumb with other themes and never really had an issue. I currently host with Bluehost.
Any ideas would be appeciated.
We forget which recommendations we gave you the first time around, but have you checked out the FAQ entry?: loading-on-my-website”>http://support.truethemes.net/entries/505668-why-aren-tthumbnails-loading-on-my-website

Cheers and Blessings.
I just posted my question in your support forum hoping to get some assistance asap.
You know, I’m currently using a temporary domain ‘http://188.8.131.52/~aganacat/' to build my new site with this theme. Is timthumb particular with the image path?
6th question – sorry! I have followed instructions to order my main navigation names but for some reason although I have changed the order under Menus, it is not reflected in the main site?
Q7. I have added subcategories as pages and then indented them as per video in the menu structure but I cannot see the sub categories at all?
Q8. On a roll now (!) How do I enter a profile photo? Cannot see how to add it in users.
Q9. Because i do not have the bitton called SCREEN OPTIONS at the top right hand side I am unable to follow your instructions to enter a description for the top level navigation?
Q10. Is it possible to add a thumbnail images to the blog page summary page?
