Dear sir,

Yesterday (16 hours ago it says in my original comment) I asked some pre-buy questions here in the Comments section, have you seen them? I appreciate if you could respond A.S.A.P., since I need to make a quick decision which theme to use. I will most likely go for the Konzept theme, however I need some clarifications from you before hitting the purchase button.

Have a really nice day! Jenna

It’s been answered 3 minutes before you wrote this comment, so we actually wrote that at the same time :)

Important thing: if you will need quick support after purchase then it’s not a good choice. We usually need 24-72h to reply. And more to fix issues (like 7 days).

Dear sir,

Regarding my question: (11) Is fullscreen video (both selfhosted, YouTube and Vimeo) supported when accessing from an iPad and iPhone? If it’s not, will you fix this in the future and do you know when?

You responded: 11) Yes, it’s supported in the current v1.0.4.3. You can test “Shapes” project to make sure that it works.

Some further questions about this:

1) Is it possible to have this fullscreen HTML5 video autoplaying in iPhone? I have read somewhere that it doesn’t work due to iPhone’s policy.

2) Is it possible to have this fullscreen HTML5 video autoplaying in iPad?

(Currently I don’t have access to iPhone or iPad, that’s why I ask)

In the end of your reply you said: I hope that my answers clarify some things. Generally – we provide 1:1 copy of demo files, so what you see on demo is what you get and additional options are generally not there at this moment but will be (hopefully) in Konzept v2 – to be released next year. I don’t promise anything, yet though. We’re still working on the framework.

3) Yes it did! However can you please estimate when Konzept version 2 will be out? I mean will it be quarter 1? 2? 3? or 4… 2013?

4) If I buy the current Konzept version, will it then be easy to upgrade it to version 2 when it comes out?

And here come a few new questions:

5) What is the maximum number of characters that can be used in each Slide description?

6) Is the Konzept theme compatible with the plug-ins a) WooCommerce? b) WP e-Commerce?

7) A short general question (I appreciate if you can answer this too, a short answer will be fine!): When using a fullscreen video on a website some people recommend hosting the video on e.g. Youtube (thus making use of their powerful cloud computing structure) rather than hosting it yourself. What is your opinion on this, should I choose Youtube hosting to obtain better viewer experience for those people with slow Internet connection?

I am soon ready to hit the purchase button ;)

Many thanks for your GREAT AND FAST SUPPORT! It is very much appreciated!

I wish you all the best! Jenna

11) Yes, you can check “Shapes” project on iPhone and iPad. I’m not sure about HTML5 Videos though – we generally don’t use them because they are too heavy for any affordable hosting. YouTube and Vimeo should work fine.

2) HTML5 videos are supported by “Featured Slider” any they will always autoplay in the loop. In projects HTML5 videos should work but we generally discourage their usage. It’s better to use hosting services for videos. iPhones and iPads are fully compatible with YT or Vimeo – but custom HTML5 video player may not work with future iOS versions that well.

3) Quarter 2/3. I have no idea because moving that to new framework requires like 2 weeks of work and the framework to be fully prepared requires still like 2-3 months.

4) It will require entire new installation but moving content is only like 1-2h of work, so I think it can be called easy.

5) Not much. There is no limit but you should adapt elements to be as close to demo demo ones as possible – or you’ll be forced to make fonts smaller to accommodate more text.

6) There are blank page templates that should allow you putting codes of those plugins. Those plugins should generally work everywhere but you’ll need to create your own styling for their elements.

7) Definitely – Youtube should be your first choice (unless you must have custom player for some reason). YouTube allows custom skins but they require some work. Basically – Youtube player is maintained by a lot of developers and companies such as Apple adapt iPhones/iPads to Youtube and not the other way around – Youtube player will generally work everywhere, the fastest way. Hosting 50mb videos on your server is a waste of transfer and average hosting solutions may not handle that well.

8) Our support is generally not that fast – we receive a lot of support requests and sometimes bug fixes require a week, two or a month to be resolved (but the good news is that we usually resolve everything eventually). Let me emphasize once again that it’s going to be 1:1 copy of demo files. It has some additional options but not tons of them like some other themes do :) It may be a good start base for custom modifications if default look/behaviors are not satisfying.

Hi again Flow!

One question about portfolio’s dates. We put on the date of the projects like this (dd.mm.yyyy), and we choose “Portfolio thumbnails order by: Date”, but they appear in the order that we uploaded, not in the order of the date. You know why?

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

Order by date means order in which they were published. I hope that this information will be helpful :)

I’ve just tried installing this twice, just to make sure. It kills my site completely, can’t even access WP admin. For me this is pretty much a defcon 1 “bug” in terms of installation issues.

Flow
Flow Author

I exactly know what happens – moving files from PC or MAC to Linux based server changes them, converts them. There’s nothing bad about it if theme doesn’t use commented code or comments are like this /* comment */. We unfortunately use different kind of PHP comments.

Thank you for complaining about this :) We have to take things like that into account but our plan is to skip Konzept v1.1, v1.2…. etc. and release Konzept v2 as the nearest update. With completely different framework. This will fix 90% of issues that people encounter. Daisho theme uses this framework already but it’s not yet great. Daisho support requests are almost 0.

To be honest, all I think it needs in terms of functionality to be pretty much perfect, is to use the menu auto hide function from your Agency theme, and to take the auto re-arrange from the portfolio used in the Daisho theme. Implement both of those features and I’d be very happy :)

Flow
Flow Author

Thank you for your suggestions :)

The reality is that Konzept should be supported for a long, long time (up to 2020?) by us and the update to Konzept v2 will not appear sooner than at the beginning/mid 2013. It’s just a lot of work but I think it’s worth updating for a long time :)

Having a couple of issues, one pretty serious I guess. Homepage doesn’t show any of my projects. Second, I can’t find how/where to change the information on the contact form as per the documentation. Please advise.

Yes, I’ve made 2 new portfolio items.

It’s whatever version you have available. I downloaded it today.

My fault again. I’m so used to changing > settings>reading settings>Front page displays to a static page, namely home and that breaks the whole portfolio setup. Oops!

Flow
Flow Author

The URL you provided – awesome color choice :)

Although [Settings > Reading] is WordPress option it will probably be changed by WordPress team because theme developers and WordPress users can come up with better ideas for that section (it’s discussed in WordPress bug tracker in many tickets). It’s best if you select “Latest Posts” there because this theme and our other themes simply overwrite that anyway and load other templates. The discussion is about the fact that WordPress doesn’t recognize pages that are placeholders for “homepage” etc. and many people need it this way :)

And… currently downloaded version should be fine – you should be able to install it and it will work like demo does – it’s 1:1 copy.

Dear Flow,

I hope that you are having a great Friday! I appreciate very much if you could answer my last questions above (the comment with 7 questions posted 2 days ago – it is comment number 3 from above on this page).

Many thanks for your kind help!

I just replied. Those are very long comments and replying took me almost 20 minutes – that’s why I reply with delays. I hope that it’s okay with you anyway :)

Hello there…

I have a few questions about the Konzept Wordpress theme:

1… What is the maximum number of slides that I can have in a slideshow on an ordinary page, e.g. in the slideshow that you have on the HOME page here: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept/?prj=thumb&style=light&featured=true

2… What is the maximum number of slides that I can have in a project slideshow, e.g. in the project slideshow that you have here: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept/portfolio/shapes/

3… Is it technically possible to have a video spokesperson (i.e. in Flash with removed background so it looks like the person “is” in the website).... a… On an ordinary static page, e.g. ABOUT US? b… In a slideshow on e.g. the HOME page? c… In a project slideshow, e.g. SHAPES in your demo website?

4… Do you recommend importing demo website sample content? I am a beginner, I have never created a Wordpress site before, please advise me if this is a good idea! What do most people do?

5… What is the maximum number of projects that I can have in the portfolio? I.e. when using the thumbnail version: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept/?prj=thumb&style=light&featured=true In this demo version you have 24 projects (i.e. 24 thumbnails).

Thank you!

1) Featured slideshow – about 10. Max width is set to about 20,000px. Above that images will be skipped. This varies on resolution and can be changed but it’s recommended to make front page small (some people have slow connections).

2) Normal project – unlimited but it’s best to keep it below 20-30.

3) If only you have such animation then you can put it like you would in any other theme – standard pages and posts behave just like they do in Twenty Eleven theme. You can have this everywhere – perhaps with slight code modification if you need that as project slides or in featured slideshow. Static pages support this without any modifications as long as you put it as post/page content (or as long as you have some other way to insert this, e.g. in wp_footer()).

4) Yes. If you’re starting then you’ll need additional hours/days to get to know WordPress, you’ll likely to have many questions and maybe even difficulties. Support forum is visited by support staff members from 8:00 to 18:00-20:00, Mon-Fri/Sat CET.

5) Unlimited but obviously it should be reasonable number. 24, 36 or 48 is okay.

I hope that answers some of your questions :)

I’m just getting my feet wet with having a web presence beyond regular wordpress blogging, so my question might be laughably simple.

But anyway. I really like this theme but my portfolio is a mixture of graphics-heavy and text-heavy material. Can I include in the portfolio an entry that looks like any other, but when you click on it, what comes up is a page that’s formatted more like a news page or a blog post? I didn’t see anything like that in the example sites listed. Thanks.

Flow
Flow Author

Basically we provide 1:1 copy of demo files, so what you see on demo is possible – we show there almost all possible setups (images, videos etc.). To make it work exactly like you need it to you may need to modify it slightly or have someone do that for you.

Two short questions: Can I have a fullscreen video in both the first and second slide in a slideshow on the home page? I.e. the visitor enters the website and the first fullscreen video starts to play automatically and when it has finished the visitor clicks the right arrow and comes to slide number 2 and then the second fullscreen video starts to play automatically….. ? Question number 2: Is it possible to arrange so that the YouTube logotype and Youtube status bar (when hosting the video on YouTube) isn’t seen when having the video as a fullscreen slide? I.e. so that there is no sign at all that the video is hosted on YouTube? I look forward to buying the Konzept theme! Bye!

Flow
Flow Author

1) Yes. This should be possible with “Featured Slideshow” option.

2) YouTube always shows logo – unless you have partner account or customize their skin on your own.

I hope that helps!

Here is a third question on the very same subject: Can I have only one slide (that consists of a fullscreen video) in a slideshow on the home page? What happens if there is only one slide, will there be no right arrow on the mouse pointer? Or will the right arrow be there but it is impossible to go to slide number 2? If I can’t have only one slide, what is the minimum number of slides in a slideshow on the home page? Thanks! Bye!

Flow
Flow Author

It is recommended to have at least 2 slides but I think that 1 can be placed there too. There are going to be left/right arrows but they won’t work.

You can edit index.php to have 1 static image or video instead of slideshow there. But generally you should have 2 or more slides.

How do i change the color of the extended-blog-title hover colors?

Please check 1 hour newer comment than yours – it has the same question with answer :)

How do I change the color of the extended-blog-title hover on the blog list page, the latest posts links at the bottom of the single post and the previous and next links color?

Flow
Flow Author

Style.css, line 600: .extended-blog-title a:hover { color: #3B95B1; }. For list of 4 latest posts: .related-posts-title a:hover { color: #3B95B1; } and prev/next links are on line 573 (it’s hard to paste such long code here).

I hope that helps!

Hmm, that was supposed to be an answer to the first question :) It’s [Slideshow > Add New]. You can upload there images or videos. Remember to upload video in all formats: WEBM, MP4, OGG + JPG poster.

Ah, this – then you can add Vimeo or YouTube video in SuperSlide Editor and specify background image – it will resize to 640px instead of fullscreen.

I went through it I have no other option I mean I have to display the images in a project not on full scream layut but in the center Otherwise I would not be able to use this theam please help me…

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, I see and it’s possible. If you have imported sample content please go to [Portfolio > Shapes] and check how it’s done. If you haven’t imported sample content please just add video under [Portfolio > Add New] and specify “poster image” for YouTube or Vimeo video. It will appear in the middle of the screen like in case of “Shapes” project. Shapes project lists almost all possible video layouts.

so it can not be done the same with an image on an full scream image?

Flow

Images are always fullscreen only. If they weren’t like that you would have blank space beneath them.

You can probably do it like this: http://gyazo.com/043af94155c820c6a20784a8df099b87.png?1355232337

I’ve seen a few people doing such modification. However, it’s fullscreen portfolio solution, so it’s supposed to display images in fullscreen on all devices. For smaller images perhaps some standard popups and lightboxes would be better.

Flow
Flow Author

Please check our support forum – that’s the only place where I’m able to effectively track issues like that, check your website and provide you some guidance. I’m not sure what service are you trying to use to share it – perhaps Facebook or Google+. Both should grab random images. Facebook supports OGP to specify images that should be used but we don’t put that in <head> section of the website. We let it take any random image and the images that managed to be downloaded by Facebook in reasonable time will appear as those that you can share.

It seems that some people are prioritized, others (3 different people) have to wait days and still there is no response. Well, let’s hope that they are not forgotten about altogether….

I just replied your latest comment :) Indeed, purchasers are prioritized and long comments that require 10-20 minutes to be answered are likely to be answered with delays (24-72h, up to 7 days). I’m sorry if that’s too slow! We generally and eventually reply to everything.

Flow Author

Where are you trying to share it? If it’s Facebook then there’s only possibility to share full project and not single images.

Please check our support forum – that’s the only place where I’m able to effectively track issues like that and provide you some more extensive guidance and code. List of all your remaining questions in 1 place would be great!
