I’m sorry … but the code inside this template is horrible …mix of html / CSS and jquery in a very complicate way ….. into the header for example …. 1900 lines .. WHY ????

Sorry for that but i don’t understand your rules of coding into this template.

I try to just modify some simply elements and it’s so complicate …

There is quite clear logic behind this but I’ll need to know what exactly are you trying to adjust. If you could create support ticket on our forum that would be great :)

More or less …..for example , i don’t understand why you cannot use an JS file and put most of your js coming from your header ….

sorry for that but header file is unreadable …..........

We can do that but since some modules need PHP output it has to be PHP file and since it is being executed in more places (and it is connected with functions.php AJAX calls) it has to be somewhere where it’s accessible from all pages. So, if moved to new PHP file – it still would look similarly.

It’s readable and code has proper indentation everywhere but I agree that it’s very complex code. There are a lot of AJAX requests and complex math formulas everywhere. We also use rare (and also complex) mechanisms to perform some additional actions that update URLs and other things.

As for style tags – they are all put in <head> section of the document and it’s again – only those styles that need PHP conditions.

Basically – you shouldn’t update that part of script because it is CORE script of slideshow (loading projects etc.). You are perhaps interested in standard HTML and CSS modifications. I would be able to help you if I knew what are you trying to do.

it’s just for information .. i’m a developper from 15 years , so i’m not afraid just disappointed …. your code can be less complex for reading … for sure …

it’s just a remark …..

It’s not my code to be honest but we outsourced it. Thanks for your suggestions! We will be moving a lot of Javascript to CSS3 eventually, so it will surely become less complex.

Anyway, I think that there’s nothing to edit in header.php for you and you’re looking for other scripts. Nobody would understand contents of header.php because it’s almost “compressed” version. Especially slideshow calculations and AJAX calls are not readable at all by human and are not meant to be altered – some of the scripts have only one compressed version and we do not have uncompressed one because we bought it from other companies for single use in this project.

If you’d like to change some particular things like thumbnails script, styles or even HTML structure of project container then it’s much easier and it’s not the place that you’re looking for.

Full slideshow slides output is placed in framework/.../slides.php and it’s much easier to be modified (even by someone not experienced at coding).

I love the theme , very nice concept but I am affraid visitors can have problems with navigation : some fixed arrows in the projects would help ,first project with text and picture in the background. There is also some bug with the header transparancy in IE. I had some questions in the support forums but without answer for now. I hope your help me soon.

Hello,

I recently purchased your wordpress theme and thank you very much.

I have 3 questions, I will start with what I think is the easiest and end with what I think is the hardest question.

1) Do blogs have RSS feeds? If so, how does one access this RSS link? I would like to add an RSS icon perhaps to the bottom toolbar (which I enabled in sidebar). This leads me to question 2.

2) I would like to customize my icon toolbar (which was enabled in sidebar 2). For example, how would I remove the “Dribbble” icon and in it’s place add a “vimeo” icon?

Lastly, this is probably the most difficult one to answer:

3) In my contact page, I added the necessary wordpress plugin to enable the contact fields just like in the example you have set up. The problem I seem to have is the field box for “NAME”, “EMAIL”, and “MESSAGE” are unaligned, so the “NAME/EMAIL/MESSAGE” text sits a couple pixels above the empty field box where it should sit inside.

Furthermore, I notice in the example you have set up that if you click in the “NAME” box, the word disappears and you are free to type.. the same goes for “EMAIL” and “MESSAGE”.. how would I enable that on my own contact page? I am thinking that perhaps it brings it back to the issue with the words not be aligned correctly and nested in my fields… The link to my contact page is here. You should be able to see exactly what the problem is.

Please advise, and again thank you very much for putting out excellent work.

1) Yes. Standard WP feed. You can access it like this: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept/feed/

2) We still use image icons there (PNG) and they can be modified here: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept/wp-content/themes/konzept/images/connect2.png (you can either replace existing image or add new one).

3) On support forum in sticky threads there is correct Contact Form 7 code (with labels). http://support.forcg.com/topic/common-questions

I hope that helps and thank you so much for your kind words :) Please use our support forum to get quicker help.

Hi Flow,

Thank you for your response. I will adjust the image icons… I notice that there is also a connect.png.. maybe I can use that. But it seems like it will require a lot of trail and error because of the ‘CSS no-scroll’ values that will need to be adjusted.. perhaps in the future you can create an easier way for us to change these icons? Maybe setting up a map for us so we know what values to edit in CSS ?

So I tried to access my feed and it doesn’t seem to be enabled. I try adding the ’/feed/’ after the domain where my page is set-up and I am getting a 404. It’s very odd considering that the ’/feed/’ will work in the example ‘themes.devatic.com’ address you set up for yourself but it doesn’t seem to work on my individual domain. Do you recall if anyone else has had this issue? I have tried searching through the forum and it seems that no-one has touched this issue… I am at a loss to figure out why my feed is returning a 404. Even after adding the ’/feed/’ after my domain where Konzept is setup, I know it should work but it just isn’t…

What files do you think I could look at? I am thinking there is some kind of feed file that perhaps needs to be edited.

Thank you, Bobby

Thank you Flow,

Sorry about the delay in response but it took me a couple days to solve problem 1 and problem 3. Because I was moving my wordpress from one domain to another, it was a mess and there was alot of issues with broken links and paths pointing to my old domain.. in the end I decided to delete everything and start with a fresh install with my backed up mySQL database.

For the contact form problem I ended up following the instructions subtitled ‘Some optional steps to take during the installation of theme’ at the link you provided (http://support.forcg.com/topic/common-questions).

The only thing I need to adjust is the social media icons which I added on the sidebar. I understand that I can either change the PNG image or perhaps change the code to point to the ‘connect.png’ image, so I’ll see which is the best way for me to get that done.

My only suggestion is that perhaps in the future you can make it easier for people to switch out the social media icons in the sidebar? That way we aren’t stuck with icons that most don’t use (i.e. dribble).

Thanks for everything!

Hey Flow, one more question.. to get fullscreen images for the slide images what dimensions do you recommend? I am uploading 1920×1080 but for some reason they aren’t displaying as full screen… I can’t seem to find the recommended image dimensions on the documentation so I figure I could ask you this quick question.

Thank you.

Default-user

Hmm.. nevermind my question regrading the image size! I found that if you upload different images with the same name, the uploader gets confused. I didn’t realize that every image uploaded had to be labeled differently.. I was uploading images as “1”, “2” and so on..

Hi flow, konzept theme is really great and useful! I appreciate also the “coming soon” solution with the dribble plugin, and I would like to exploit this possibility. The point is that I don’t need to show graphics project by Dribbble, but I’d like to use the same interface to show some press documents .pdf Is there a way to do this, or could you recommend you a possible solution? Thank you for your time and very compliments for your job :)

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you so much for your kind words :) I’m glad that you like it!

I’m afraid there will be no way to show PDF documents ‘as is’ (as PDF ) but you can always make some images that will link to PDF documents instead of Dribbble images. It’s relatively easy. If you have some coding knowledge then I can guide you on our support forum and if you don’t have any coding knowledge then I can suggest to get some developer to do it for you (also via forum). The time that is needed to complete this is like 1h (easy change – I don’t suspect any unexpected issues with this).

Yes, there is demo XML file included. You will still need to adjust some things like contact form code or widgets but all portfolio projects, posts, pages and menus are inside that XML file.

Hi Flow, lovin the theme! I only have one question/remark; the preloader animation goes to 100% even if none of the the slideshow image have loaded. For now I’m running Konzept locally so everything is loaded directly. But I noticed the preloader being finished before images have loaded when browsing your demo, but also at other people’s websites that have the Konzept theme up and running.

Would it be possible to adjust the loading indicator so that it correctly displays the % of the project / images that have been loaded? Or could Konzept even be altered so that it goes to 100% if, say, the first three slideshow images have been loaded?

Otherwise I think some first time visitors would have difficulties to understand how and know if the slideshow works. Looking forward to your answer, thanks.

Kind regards,

Patrick

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you!

It basically shows the progress of AJAX request (true progress – it’s not fake indicator) and if we were to make it show AJAX request + “all images finished loading” then it would take much more time to load (+5-10 or even 20-30 seconds). It was showing both some time ago but in the recent version we changed that because people were complaining that loading times are long.

Indeed loading 10 HD images will take some time. It should be possible to be adjusted but I’m not sure which part of code is responsible for that. It was just 1 single, small place somewhere in core script from what I remember. If you need more advice on that subject you may create support ticket and I can try to look for that place.

Default-user

Ok. Thanks Flow. I just posted my question as a support ticket.

Even though load times might be longer, I think it’s better to correctly inform visitors, rather then to let them advance to the next slide…when the next slide isn’t loaded yet…while the indicator just indicated the project was fully loaded (a rondom visitor won’t know the load indicator is just for the Ajax request). I understand why you did it, but I’d like the load indicator to indicate for the Ajax + images. Thanks for your quick answer, looking forward to the answer on my support ticket!

Understood but let me quote the comment posted just a few days ago:

Bought theme and love the way it looks, like the functionality of the slideshow and full screen images. The only thing I am not thrilled with is the load time for projects to open up. The home page loads decently, not fast, but fast enough in my book. But when I click on a project, the site spins on the first image and I am afraid people may leave my site and not get a chance to view my work. My question: Is this slow loading b/c its having to load css/java etc…? Is it an image file size problem?

So, you see – you want it this way and other people want it the other way (they can’t afford waiting for 10 1920×1080 images to load). It’s really hard to find best compromise here.

We’re rebuilding the framework to speed it up and I’ll surely make that at least somehow closer to what you’re looking for (so that people won’t see half-loaded images if that’s possible within reasonable time).

Default-user
_patje Purchased

I see what you have to deal with. For me, still, I’d very much like (the option of) a progress indicator that shows load time for all slides (perhaps combined with loading the images on the first slide first and then the second slide, and so on; so in the case a user wants to advance a slide, first images show first). I’d try to optimize load times by keeping file size of images as small as possible.

As for optimizations to the theme, have a look at the Touchfolio and/or Royalslider plugin. To me it feels more snappy on iOS devices (iPad 3 / iPhone 4S) than Konzept. Could well be because of the fact both use smaller images and have fewer options. Still might be a good thing to aim for ;-)

Still loving the theme and looking forward to updates. Keep up the good work Flow!

Wonderful, I am in Love with your quick reply habbit :). So will it come with future upgrades i.e.. In case WP gets another version and is it working with 3.4.2? and lastly does this content is easily editable from back-end? does it has a custom dashboard within the dashboard ? Let me know so that i can put this discussion to end :D and enjoy my new website :P

Flow
Flow Author

Well, basically answer to your all questions is yes.

And furthermore, we’re re-building Konzept and moving it into new framework right now. It’s going to basically improve mechanics and eliminate any browser inconsistencies.

Hello again,

After testing the site: www.poizandfoodstyle.com in all browsers, I found a big issue on Internet Explorer (Version 9.0.8112.16421 – last one I think). The images are showing so zoomed that you’ll just see ‘white’ or something like.

Please tell me something about that because the most of people are using Internet Explorer (????unfortunately!) to visit the site.

Thank you.

Indeed, IE doesn’t seem to recognize events such as “complete” etc. like other browsers. It also moves loading of images to a new thread (it’s exactly opposite of what all other browsers do). We’re working on fixes to that. We’ll be moving Konzept to better code structure soon (once it’s ready).

I am looking to purchase this wordpress theme – great design by the way, very interactive. I am looking to create a portfolio of my work, and am a novice with any web development. Two main queries before I purchase though:

1. I would like to add an image slideshow showcasing a few key images as an initial homepage, with the navigation panel at the top. Then the current initial page of projects (grid or text) could be accessed through a ‘Portfolio’ link in the navigation panel.

2. I want to slim down the navigation bar to just 1cm or so, with a text logo far left, and navigation options of ‘Portfolio’, ‘Profile’, ‘Blog’ & ‘Contact’ arranged horizontally to the right. Otherwise, formatted in the exact same way to current iteration.

Would these changes be possible and how feasible would they be to make? Perhaps too advanced for myself to do, but I would be happy to pay somebody to alter the code if it does not require a complete restructuring of the design. Apologies for my lack of knowledge!

Many thanks

Flow
Flow Author

Thanks :) I’m glad that you like it.

1) Yes, one of demo layouts show this – it’s possible.

2) Possible, rather easy, not very time consuming (1-3h) but some coding knowledge is required. It’s not something that requires complete restructuring but as you can imagine – there are many sub-pages, responsive mode, and Javascript that adjusts positions, so developer will have to make sure that each mode and each resolution works fine.

You can visit our “Hire Developer” section on forum once purchased if you need this done quickly and correctly. Good news is that those developers usually charge $50/h but in case of such HTML /CSS you can negotiate that (even to something like $20-$25/h because it’s just very simple… or at least it looks simple to me).

Hi there,

I am wanting to buy your template for our creative agency.

How flexible to edit are the services and about pages?

We want to put lot more content on these.

Thanks

You can do that – they behave more or less like normal pages :) They will stop being vertically centered if you put a lot of content there.

Replied. Thanks for your patience while I was replying :) I usually need something like 24-48h to get back to everyone – sometimes even longer. So, if you post today then you should receive an answer today or tomorrow.

Default-user

Much appreciated and sorry for getting a touch impatient! That answers my queries nicely – cheers. I missed that demo version with the slideshow, but yeah that looks great. Would perhaps only like the images to change automatically after say 5 secs, but this may well be an option already, or would be very easy to make happen I’m sure.

Sounds promising about the alterations I want to make, and there may well be a few more tweaks, but love the initial design so will go ahead and purchase. The ‘hire developer’ section could be useful, so cheers for making that known.

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, it’s very easy to be adjusted :)

Once you post in “hire developer” section someone will get back to you in 12-24h and then they’ll deliver your some mockups, discuss changes (e.g. what should happen on mobile phones with that) and finally code that. It’s mostly automated process where developer does everything for you and you only watch it happen.

Hello.

I’m really interested in buying this theme, so i check showcase and found that many sites have problems opening projects portfolio. When click on a project, the images and videos remain behind the tumbnails and can not be viewed using the latest version of Google Chrome, for example at these sites:

http://weblira.net76.net http://www.netwisegroup.co.uk http://ferreirex.com/ http://advertisingphotographer.com.au

Before buying this theme I want to know if this problem is solved. I wonder if it’s because these clients don’t have the wordpress or theme latest version.

By the way, great job, this theme is awesome!

Flow
Flow Author

Thanks! Yes, it’s solved. In Chrome 18, 19, 20, 21 this problem didn’t occur. In Chrome 22 and 23 it appeared because of z-index changes (I think Chrome did it wrong now because it’s the only browser to calculate z-index auto like that). Demo has this solved and v1.0.4.2, too.

I already bought the template a few months ago. Now there are some problems with google Chrome and I saw that the template has been updated recently. how do I install the update? do I just have to download the template again, or is there another way to apply the update to my wordpress page? thanks!

Yes, you can just re-download it and update. If you have made any changes to files please do not update those files. And it would be great if you could not update “includes” folder as it contains uploaded images (please rename previous theme folder to “konzept-backup” on your server and install it again in “konzept” folder).

Chrome 23 – not a single problem. They are going to release this version soon because it’s been in beta for a long time now. If it worked before then maybe you’ve installed some Chrome extension in the meantime? Can you also test in private browsing mode? Or some other mode that will disable all extensions etc.
