Thank you! I’ve upgraded without problem. Only a small issue: in mobile “version” I can’t see the “Portfolio Categories Filter”. Any Ideas ?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards, D.

It’s intentionally not there but it may change. Please have a look at #7286.

Seems I have one final outstanding problem. Password protected portfolio, after entering the password, doesn’t show any content.

Also fonts on portfolio pages are not resizing for mobile device.

You can password protect individual projects but it doesn’t support passwords for portfolio pages at this moment. That’s because the portfolio page is loaded everywhere. You can bring the thumbnails grid on any page without page reload by clicking the “All works” link.

In Daisho it’s possible to have passwords for portfolio pages and individual projects but in Konzept it’s only possible to have passwords for projects.

Technically it should be possible (I hope) to add passwords support for all pages except for the page that is your main portfolio page. If you need more information about that please ask this question on the support forum and I’ll provide you the updated files.

Fonts on the portfolio thumbnail page are not resizing for mobile devices.

Flow

They are resizing for me on the demo website.

They are not resizing on your website because the custom code that you have in the Jetpack’s custom CSS field is overwriting the @media queries from the original style.css. It looks like this:

.element .symbol {
    color: #fff;
    font: 700 212.5%/0.8125 Novecentowide, sans-serif;
}

@media (max-width: 1200px) {
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 187.5%;
    }
}

@media (max-width: 1000px){
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 175%;
    }
}

@media (max-width: 480px){
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 150%;
    }
}

.element .symbol {
    color: #fff;
    font: 700 212.5%/.8125 meta-bold, sans-serif;
}

I hope that you can see in the above code that the last block of code (your custom code) overwrites all @media queries. To fix this you’d have to do either of the following:

.element .symbol {
    font-family: meta-bold, sans-serif;
}

or:

.element .symbol {
    color: #fff;
    font: 700 212.5%/.8125 meta-bold, sans-serif;
}
@media (max-width: 1200px) {
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 187.5%;
    }
}

@media (max-width: 1000px){
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 175%;
    }
}

@media (max-width: 480px){
    .element .symbol {
        font-size: 150%;
    }
}

OK, this works on the portfolio thumbnails, but once you click on them and switch to the loading screen, the original problem of fonts being too big to fit the screen occurs.

Flow

There are a couple of CSS rules that affect this place depending on resolution. The main selector is this:
.project-title {
    color: #000;
    font: 900 1000%/0.75 Novecentowide, sans-serif;
    [...]
}
Please edit 1000% which is equal to 160px. You can make it for example 140px to fit more letters.

OK, almost there… I noticed that the home page slideshow doesn’t autoplay/loop anymore. Did you turn if off or did it just break? Either way, can’t figure out how to make it work. Fairly confident that’s an end to my problems :)

Any thoughts on this? I should point out I’m working on a child theme.

Flow
Flow Author

In slideshow.php it’s enough if you replace var autoplayTime = false; // False or Integer (ms) with for example var autoplayTime = 9000; // False or Integer (ms). It will advance slides each 9 seconds then.

hi how can i setup the Light Version (Projects List) view. i tried also to load the content imported, but i skipped the install and now i don’t know how to get it back.

best regards

Flow
Flow Author

You can go to [Konzept > General] to delete the theme settings from the database. The box with demo content installation will appear again.

You can also import the XML file that is included in the package in [Tools > Import] but then you’ll have to configure the footer widgets and the menus manually.

You can create a new portfolio page with the text list of projects in [Pages > Add New]. You can have multiple portfolio pages.

Pre purchase questions:

I love the theme, but I am not sure if it will work for what I need it.

1. Can I have bigger thumbnail-project-links? I only want two taking up each 1/2 of the whole space

2. I want to use the project slider as a slideshow. Is there a maximum of shlides I can use? Will the loading time get very slow with many slides?

3. I need a FAQ page for each project. I would like to use your “Services” section to show the two project tiles and then clicking on the tiles having them go to a page / post with the information (like you have it in your “news” section, is that possible?

Thank you. Greetings,

Heike

1. This can be easily changed. You can use “Thumbnail – change its size (its height will adapt)” from the FAQ.

2. The loading time will increase with many slides but it will never exceed about 20 seconds. It will unlock even if some images are still loading after 20 seconds. It’s a good idea to not have more than 20–30 images because some devices (mobile phones, tablets) may not be able to handle that.

3. I’m not sure if I fully understand but you can link the titles from http://themes.devatic.com/konzept2/services/ to some page or a portfolio project. Let me know if you need more information about this.

Do you have problems with an widget on this theme? I’ve probably be hacked… Pictures disapeers from my server…

Default-user

Pictures can’t be uploaded in portfolio, i have Thumbnail image, but some of my portfolio pictures can’t be uploaded. watch this : www.fabientag.fr you have first thubnails.. I had them for three weeks and now.. Nothing.

When i’m in portfolio section, i start upload images and it uploads white screens, images are not uploaded.

Thanks for your help, cause i’m looking for new job, and i can’t present my works..

I’m french, maybe you’ve seen it :)

Did you contact me on the support forum already? First of all it would be a good idea to update the theme to 2.x versions: http://support.forcg.com/topic/how-to-update-a-theme

1.x versions are no longer compatible with the newest WordPress 4.0. The last compatible version was somewhere around 3.8 and the last tested version was 3.3 I think. It’s not a good idea to downgrade WordPress, it’s a better idea to upgrade the theme.

Please also have a look at the differences between 1.x and 2.x versions: http://support.forcg.com/topic/konzept-common-changes#update — it was a full theme rewrite.

Once you update to current version 2.1 all problems will be gone.

Hi Flow – First off thank you for a great theme. It’s by far one of the best themes I’ve seen.

Question for you; Is there an easy and effective way to add a Vimeo/Youtube option to the slider? Similar to how you have it in Portfolio?

Thanks in advance!

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you, I’m glad that you like the theme!

There is no easy way to add YouTube/Vimeo videos there. Such feature would have to be manually coded from scratch.

It is limited to these media:
  • YouTube, Vimeo, images, HTML5 videos in the portfolio projects,
  • HTML5 videos, images in the featured slideshow.

In Daisho (which appeared a couple of months after Konzept) we eliminated all these limits and you can have any kind of media thanks there to its standard look. It doesn’t have the featured slideshow. Daisho is an iteration of Konzept that was created based on feedback we received for Konzept.

technofunk

Thanks for the quick response. Would I be able to hire you to code in this feature?

Flow
Flow Author

You can find developers available to do that on http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-customization

Since this is a drag and drop slideshow a developer can either make it be a background video (probably with chromeless YouTube) or it can be a video that pops up on top of the slideshow (it will also cover the header).

The second approach is used in the Konzept for portfolio projects and in slideshows like http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/

The file to modify is slideshow.php and the time to do that is at least half a day and it shouldn’t exceed a day. The developer will also have to make it work on mobile devices and tablets correctly.

Please consider if you really need this feature. Maybe you don’t need a video there — static images are lighter, will load faster, and your visitors can quickly skip to the content (portfolio, about and contact pages) which may be an advantage. Not many people take time to watch any kind of videos (perhaps 10% of people do that and 90% don’t do that but I don’t have any legitimate data to support this assumption). People jump from page to page and if they can’t access information they are looking for in a second or two they will leave. Therefore, maybe the entire featured slideshow is an obstacle and not an improvement.

Hello, as you know, your theme Konzept is having problems with the MacBook touchpad. Now, I never experienced any problem with any other website with my MacBook. My question to you is why you even do not try to make Konzept work with the latest version of iScroll? Konzept is using an old version of iScroll, versionv4.1.9 while the latest version of iScroll is v5.1.3. Maybe it solves the MacBook touchpad problem. Konzept is one of the best themes here, but sadly enough it has taken too long to solve such an important problem. Replacing the iScroll library with the newest version is not a solution. Then the touchpad navigation does not work anymore. Can you please try to update the iScroll library and make it work with Konzept? Thank you.

Thank you for your detailed reply and fix. Yes, your patch solves the slideshow scrolling now. There is only a little issue at the end, when the slideshow switches from the last slide back to the first one. Will Konzept v2.2 include the latest version of iScroll as well? Looking forward for the new update. Once again thank you for your great support. I appreciate it.

“There is only a little issue at the end, when the slideshow switches from the last slide back to the first one.” – I’m aware of this issue and if you enter Royal Slider demo there is the same issue. That’s because slides are technically present one after another and to get back from the very last one to the very first one or from the very first one to the very last one you have to see all of them. Most drag and drop slideshows will have this issue.

Slideshows like LayerSlider or Revolution Slider don’t have this issue because they are not drag and drop slideshows and their authors position the appropriate slide in the appropriate place after you click one of the navigation arrows (i.e. its script moves the very first slide after the last one when you’re viewing the very last slide).

This drag and drop library is one of few that I’ve seen to fix this: http://www.owlcarousel.owlgraphic.com/demos/basic.html — you can see that after the last (12th) item they append the 1st one again. This mechanism would have to be implemented in Konzept. iScroll library that we use is able to do that (with proper extension that I’d have to create) but perhaps I’ll switch this slideshow to Owl Carousel. Owl Carousel will be included in v2.2 because I used it for WooCommerce’s galleries. It isn’t yet used for the featured slideshow though.

Flow, I guess it’s better to integrate Owl Carousel for the whole theme, including the slideshow. It seems to be the perfect slider solution. Thank you one more time for your support. Very much appreciated! PS: any idea when you would launch v2.2?

How easy it is to remove the complete portfolio system? OR… To disable the portfolio system from loading?

Flow
Flow Author

In footer.php you can remove the two lines that use get_template_part(). And in header.php you should remove <ul class="pf_nav option-set menu-col-categories clearfix">...</ul> with everything inside.

Greetings again,

I have a few questions.

1. Are you planning on adding a page builder in the future? 2. Any plans of adding a homepage loop for the blog posts that looks similar to the portfolio thumbnails grid design?

Best regards,

Flow
Flow Author

1. Yes, such tools are very useful and we’ll be surely adding them in the future. I added Visual Composer to Daisho theme a couple of weeks ago but we’re thinking about something different for Konzept. It’ll take some time before we do that though.

2. So far blog has only one layout. It’s located in index.php. It wouldn’t be difficult to use the thumbnails from project-loop.php to list blog posts.

If you create a support ticket I can describe the steps necessary to do that (since comments on ThemeForest don’t allow appropriate text formatting to be used). Some basic coding knowledge is necessary to follow them. Or you can find a freelance developer available to do that on http://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-customization — they won’t need much time to complete that. Probably just an hour or two.

HpnotikQrew

Cool. I recently bought Visual Composer, and It works great with the site using Konzept theme! However, I was thinking maybe if you integrated the feature things would load faster better functionality.

Add few more layout for the blog and category pages as options would be a great idea.

Have you an ETA for the WooCommerce upgrade for Konzept?

You can download WooCommerce module at the bottom of #7255. This will be a part of v2.2 as well.

Dear Flow, I have read here that you do not plan to add the Daisho filtering method to Konzept. That’s a very sad thing. Your Konzept demo has only 25 portfolio items, and for such a limited amount of items, the present Konzept filtering effect works really great. But imagine a portfolio page with more than 100 items. Then, it becomes a big mess, because people have to scroll down and down to find particular category items spread all over, instead of getting all of them within a view. It can’t be so difficult to provide this feature when you already developed it for Daisho. I realize very well that it would put a bit of a blot on the concept of the Konzept theme, but you must think also a little further than 25 portfolio items. Thank you.

Flow

You can follow “Thumbnail – make it disappear when inactive (no animation)” from #4837 to hide inactive thumbnails.

The only problem is that Konzept uses very simple and short HTML and CSS code for the portfolio and animating the thumbnails won’t work like in Daisho (so that the other thumbnails animate smoothly to the new place). Daisho uses a heavy and advanced library to handle this.

The same library would have to be implemented in Konzept. And this is on the roadmap but I’d prefer to not say what and when will happen. The plan assumes that there will be multiple shortcodes with multiple libraries assigned to them.

Instead of hiding the thumbnails you can also consider these two ideas:
  • If you analyze portfolio websites of top photographers and other kinds of artists you’ll notice that they typically showcase a limited amount of photographs — about 20–30 per portfolio page. Their websites are generally very simple and they consist of 30 pictures, about and contact pages. They have good reasons to do it this way. It doesn’t distract the visitor and it gives the visitor only a few options — they either browse the works and leave the website or browse the works and contact the photographer (or bookmark his website to contact him later).
  • Loading 100 images that are on average 100 kB each would take 10 MB and if you try to load 10 MB on the visitors’ computers or mobile phones it will take more than 10 seconds for many and if it takes more than 10 seconds then you can assume that over 60% will leave the website: http://i.gyazo.com/ebe06dc863cdc3f8c4d67aec7a255c2a.png — also not every mobile phone or tablet will download that without WiFi connection.

Therefore, maybe it’s a better idea to pick only the most interesting pieces of work if this is an option in your case. Or you can consider splitting that into multiple portfolio pages which is a very popular approach. Many people have for example separate “portraits”, “fashion”, “videos” etc. portfolio pages — each showcasing different kinds of work.

Dear Flow, Thank you for your detailed feedback. Your support is awesome, and helps me a lot. I created several portfolio pages (being named as main categories), each with several sub-categories (which are a selection of several portfolio categories). I then added the code in the custom css.styling to hid the All Works Menu (the full portfolio-grid), but to display the sub-categories (only) when a certain portfolio page (a main category) is selected. So now, when a particular portfolio page is selected, I get its sub-categories in the All Works Menu. Pity is that the name of the main category (the portfolio page) is not displayed. Is it possible to change the words “All Works” (which is always displayed on top of the sub-portfolio-categories) into the name of the particular Portfolio page (or main category name)?

hello!
