Hi Flow :) I’ve gone through my notes, for the life of me I cant find how i changed ‘all works’ to ‘Portfolio’. Ive just spend 30mins going through the website. Do you mind telling me which php page the text is to change? cheers J

hey jl-b, i got this problem too: it’s in line 60 in the konzept\header.php <?php _e(‘all works’, ‘flowthemes’); ?>

Flow

It’s best to either use the official WordPress way for translating built-in strings or a child theme — both are described in http://support.forcg.com/topic/translating-themes

Hi Flow :) I finished my website, really pleased, your template is amazing.

I noticed something when flicking through the slideshow of images. A strange refresh flicker thing happens, roughly half way through looking at the images. Its like the site goes back a page for a moment. Do you know why that is? Cheers J

Flow

May I have your URL, please? Does this happen on the demo page as well?

The slideshow uses iScroll library which creates the slideshow immediately even if the images did not load yet. The fact that they are usually still loading after the rest of the website has already loaded should not cause flickering.

iScroll will refresh the slideshow once you for example resize the browser window (and also in a few other rare circumstances) to recalculate all the sizes and positions of every slide. JavaScript that does this may need a lot of time to do that — even 100ms or more at times — maybe that’s the reason. If that’s the reason then I think it can’t be easily helped. The library and our scripts could be optimized further but operating on big images and many containers will always take some time.

Hi Flow :) Ive added the domain to my Devatic profile as Google indexes this blog and links to my name. The post on your tech support site is : #7632 Slideshow flicker when viewing images, cheers J

Hi Flow :) Could I have the normal arrows appear at the end of a portfolio instead of the line appear?

I would like clients to continue viewing the images without distraction of clicking on other pages. Because their is a text page at the start of the portfolio they will know a new portfolio has begun. Cheers J :)

I adjusted the ccs file, strangely it didnt work, addd the code to the custom css page, no joy. I see what you are suggesting by using the cursors without the line. This is what ive adjusted in the ‘between slides’ section:

.portfolio-arrowleft { left: 0; right: auto; background: url(images/cursors/cursor_prev_black.png) no-repeat center center transparent; } .portfolio-arrowright { left: auto; right: 0; background: url(images/cursors/cursor_next_black.png) no-repeat center center transparent; } .portfolio-arrowleft-white { background: url(images/cursors/cursor_prev_white.png) no-repeat center center transparent; } .portfolio-arrowright-white { background: url(images/cursors/cursor_next_white.png) no-repeat center center transparent; }

hi flow, I was too quick…. that that all is working as II wish… the problem is, that links in the news “overview” doesn’t work. in the single site of the post yes, but not in the overwiew.

I read that someone had the same problem, but I didn’t understand the solution…. http://support.forcg.com/topic/links-in-news-section-do-not-work#post-34273t on one of your example site: http://joshgrieve.com/our-news/ is the solution I want. what have I to do?

Please accept my apologies for delayed response. I updated the answer. You should be able to follow it now.

hey flow, i really like the sharpness of the theme. to make it perfectly retina ready it would be cool to add the following features:

- replace “forward” and “backwards” arrows with svgs

- replace the “close” cross with svg

- replace the “play button” with svg or svg and font

maybe you allready designed them in illustrator so you can simply convert them into svg – that would be state of the art! the advantage of the svg is not only their sharpness but also their easyness in color customization (you can change the pathcolor and add transitions via css – no need for extra black and white arrows no more which might be a big plus for the user experience …) regards brouge

Flow

Thank you for your suggestion.

We used PNG images at first because the mouse cursor was using them. Unfortunately, not all browsers supported that feature so we switched that to static cursors in 2.x versions of Konzept.

It’s a good idea to make them SVG cursors. I’ve just added it to the list of things to do.

hi i just changed line 126 to: http://player.vimeo.com/video/'.$video_vimeo.'?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0&color=007995&hd=1 nothing changed. you can have a look at http://www.odile-hain.photography/portfolio/schneider/ regards

Please also do this change in /admin/superslide/shortcode-slide.php around line 124. I forgot to mention this one. It should work then.

hey flow,

i found an issue, that influences the usability a lot. it’s all about the closing button (twisting cross) in a portfolio item. if you go to the main page (in my case http://www.odile-hain.photography/) you can click the portfolio items and if you hit “close” you return to the homepage – that’s great and easy!

1. now if you are in a portfolio item lets say “burlesque” (http://www.odile-hain.photography/portfolio/burlesque/) and you refresh the page (sometimes thats what users do) you won’t be redirected to the homepage no more (you are redirected to the portfolio item).

2. if you have video content (e.g. http://www.odile-hain.photography/portfolio/kuhfriseur/) and you hit play and than the close button you are redirected to the portfolio content (is it possible to be redirected to the homepage?)

3. thats luxuy but noticable. you have two different close buttons for images and videos (can you use the same for the videos, without making a new – i tried to change the z-index over 2000 but it won’t work – probably you had a good reason to do it like it is)

many regards thomas

Flow

1, 2. Please set your main portfolio page in [Konzept > General]. WordPress has [Settings > Reading] to set the blog page and the theme had to add something similar for the portfolio page.

Also, in [Portfolio > (some project)] you can set where the close button will redirect to for individual projects but that’s only useful if you have multiple portfolio pages and it works only if you enter a project directly. If you enter a project from a portfolio page without page reloads enabled then the “X” button knows where to return to automatically.

3. At first the videos were a part of the slideshow just like images but I had to move them outside of the slideshow because CSS3 transitions and videos didn’t work well in Firefox/Mac and Chrome/Mac. It worked fine in Safari/Mac and in all PC browsers. So, for now the videos have to be outside of the slideshow, they are technically in a separate popup window with a separate close button. The last time I tested this was in late 2014.

thank you for all the information. i replaced the close button for the videos with the normal one and use the same transitions. i will check them in mac and let you know.

okay i converted every icon i needed by myself. looks razorsharp now! check it out on http://www.odile-hain.photography for non svg-browsers i made a fallback with svgmagic which works quite well.

Hi Flow, hope all is well. Ive just checked my website on an iphone 6, when looking at the portfolios I can get to the second last image and then it sticks, cant get any further and have to press the cross. Usually one portfolio leads on to the next. Do you know about it? :)

Flow

Yes, on desktop computers one projects leads to the next but that’s intentionally disabled for mobile phones. In style.css it’s enough if you remove the following (it’s somewhere close to the line 2100) to enable that:

@media (max-width: 720px) {
.daisho-portfolio-viewing-project .project-navigation,
.daisho-portfolio-viewing-project .portfolio-arrowleft,
.daisho-portfolio-viewing-project .portfolio-arrowright {
        display: none;
    }
}

That works, brilliant :) Folk on Facebook are clicking on the website and getting confused by not been able to swipe without closing the portfolio and reopening another. Doing it from the slideshow is giving them a few screens taps just to carry on.

Now is just one big swipe with ease, cheers Flow :)

how can i get rid off the .sidedock (like, watch late, share) in vimeo videos? i tried to put iframe #player .controls-wrapper .sidedock { display:none!important; } but it won’t work, probably because you are not allowed to assign css to iframes.

hmm maybe i did something wrong: i copied lines 230 – 241 and pasted it in line 806. still i get redirected to the single portfolio project.

Flow

Line 242 should be copied as well. It’s the last one in that block of code and it says closePortfolioItem();.

In my file videoContainerOutside.remove(); is on line 809. It needs to be pasted right after that line.

Alternatively, instead of doing all that you can simply paste jQuery('.portfolio-cancelclose').trigger('click'); after the 809 line.

thank you the alternative works great!

nevermind :)

Before buying a template, I want to ask a question about the video display in project http://themes.devatic.com/konzept-dark/portfolio/shapes/ on tne iPone5:

This is not very nice.

Flow

At the moment this was coded iOS devices used to turn videos into some native element and when anything (like the “X”) was on top of a video it didn’t work. So, the video is centered in the middle until iOS changes something. It’s cut from the top and from the bottom just a little bit to allow the “X” to fit in.

The good news is that when you actually tap that video it becomes fullscreen. Also, it looks like this in horizontal view but in vertical view it looks normally. Also, on tablets and all larger touch screens it looks normally.

You can adjust the following in style.css to make it have some other aspect ratio:
.mod-touch .project-slides embed,
.mod-touch .project-slides iframe,
.mod-touch .project-slides video {
    [...]
    width: 100%;
    height: 50%;
    height: calc(100% - 200px);
    height: -webkit-calc(100% - 200px);
    [...]
}
Flow

You can ignore all the CSS errors because most of them come from plugins and the ones that don’t are something that the validator doesn’t recognize yet. The only true error is in the HTML output. I’ll fix it in the next theme update. You don’t have to worry about it because all the browsers will parse that correctly.

Hello, when I create pages in konzept thema it automatically insert the comment field! How can I take this course of my pages?

Flow

You can disable them in [Pages > (that page) > Allow comments]. It’s in the “Discussion” box that you can enable in “Screen Options” in the top right corner if it’s not enabled. There’s also an option to do that globally in [Settings > Discussion]. These two options work the same way in most themes, including all the default ones.

Hi there, I was wondering if the theme is safe and secure (when can we expect an updated version) since it had no updates for more than a year now and also my provider has warned me that in directory there are many mallwares, example: themes/konzept/core/allowed-upload-mimes_new.php: JCDEF.Obfus.CreateFunc.BackDoorEval-21.UNOFFICIAL FOUND. Please advice .

regards

Flow

The original files don’t use eval() in any place. Version 2.1 is fully secure, I doubt that you can find any security issues in this version. It’s based on the default 2014/2015 themes and almost everything is up-to-date even if there weren’t any updates for a year. You can also get the newest development version (last updated a couple of weeks ago).

Something might have modified your files. If the theme and WordPress were up-to-date all the time then you might have had some plugin that wasn’t secure.

What you should do now:
  • Please briefly flick through a couple of articles about viruses for WordPress. You’ll find out what they do, how they work, which files they typically modify and how to fix that and prevent that in the future.
  • Then you may start by downloading some antivirus plugin and letting it scan and fix your WordPress.
  • Later please remove all potentially insecure plugins, restore the original theme/plugins files because they may be modified (and the antivirus plugin won’t fix that) and change your WordPress password. Changing the database password is also recommended because it’s in wp-config.php and the virus might have read it. Changing the server password shouldn’t be necessary.

Hi Flow,

I have the following problem, in mobile version I would like to make the first slideshow disabled. Right after browse through some google, and I found this link. http://support.forcg.com/topic/logo-is-missed-in-mobile-mode-when-home-slider-is-active Therefore I follow your advise and change the slider.php At the very top of slideshow.php you can change: FROM and TO However it only work on iphone device but in my samsung device the touch scrolling effect are gone. Could you lead me on this ?

Please accept my apologies for delayed response. I somehow missed this comment earlier.

wp_is_mobile() is not a perfect function and there are inconsistencies in what it detects. Perhaps you shouldn’t use it.

A mobile phone or a tablet is not different from a laptop or a desktop computer nowadays. You can detect devices’ resolution (such as below 640px) or features (such as touch) to disable this slideshow.

Perhaps detecting resolution would be better in your case. So, in slideshow.php, right before </script> please paste:

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
    if(jQuery(window).width() < 640){
        jQuery('.featured-close').trigger('click');
    }
});

When you enter a website and the browser window’s resolution is below about 658px (includes vertical scrollbar’s width which is usually 16-20px) then the slideshow will be loaded and quickly closed.

Hi Flow :) hope all is well with you. Could you tell me how to get the twitter and Facebook share icons back on to the template? I’ve gone through my notes, can’t find where you helped me with that request. I’m doing a second website, going to duplicate rather than go from scratch. best J :)

Flow
Flow Author

They are located in project-container.php. You can restore that file to the original version. Also, /js/portfolio.js updates them as you go through projects.

Please consider using the newest WordPress version and version 2.2 of this theme that was released on May 20, 2015. It contains updated plugins and PHP classes. Otherwise you may be affected by one of the recent security issues in WordPress, many plugins and themes: http://marketblog.envato.com/news/wordpress-item-security-vulnerability/

If you want to stick to older versions of this theme please at least update /core/auto-install/ and /core/plugins/ folders. They contain updated TGM plugin activation class and updated plugins.
