The theme includes 23+ JavaScript files and then embeds over 2,000 lines of JS code in every page. It has become too much of a performance problem, and doesn’t reflect quality HTML5 construction.

I really love the art of Konzept, I wish more templates were as bold and simple in their design. I hope future templates will have a lot more efficiency/elegance in their markup, you can be sure I will be a customer.

I’m working on a major update to fix all issues like that mentioned in the past 11 months by users.

New version will include auto-optimization and all JS files will be compressed to “jscache.js” like we already do here: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/

In other words, the code will be as simple as the front end is :) Thank you for your comment. It’s indeed very important to clean and optimize that. The update should appear in the coming weeks (most likely in April).

Ho, I have a strange problem. since one day there is an error on the frontpage portfolio. When you click on a thumbnail it shows an error message “no valid projects”

Whats wrong ? I cant change anything … and now stop works.

Flow
Flow Author

In admin panel you can specify normal WordPress title for each project under [Portfolio > Add New]. But in addition to that we created our own “Title” field below SuperSlide which is your frontpage display title. It acts like an indicator if project is valid or not. It’s enough to specify it.

In the nearest Konzept update this field will be removed because we already removed AJAX project loading and such indicator will stop be useful. We replaced AJAX with better technology.

Please also make sure that you’re using the newest Konzept if you’re using WP3.5.1.

Hey, love the theme,

Having a problem with responsiveness of site on Tablet PC’s and Smartphones. Is it only set for Apple OS or not? How would i fix this?

Flow

Please accept my apologies for delayed response. Recently we uploaded version 2.0-beta which improves tablet and mobile performance. We aim: iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android (mobile, tablets) and Windows Phone support.

Great theme! Quick question. Once a thumbnail (project) is selected, instead of it opening on a full screen overlay, is there an option to have the images stack on top of one another to allow the user to scroll rather than a full page slideshow (eliminating vertical restrictions on images)?

Thanks!

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :) In the nearest update thumbnails will be able to do two things:

  • link to the project like before
  • link to any external URL (like a post or page)

I think that this may be what you’re looking for. There is also “fit screen” mode for slideshow that prevents images from being cropped.

Default-user

Thanks for your reply. I think that is what I was looking for. With this option would the images still be full screen? Or will there be a max width (preferred). Lastly, is there any possible way to see this in action? Thanks!

Yes, old slideshow with old modes will remain. Just new features will be added. Working version is here: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept2/

Hi there,

We would like to have hrefs in single portfolio pages. They work in the browser but somehow they won’t work on the iPad. It’s really important for us to link to external sites.

How can we fix this? Is there some code we can disable or do we need some shortcodes?

Hope you can help us out… thanks paul

Very soon I’ll upload Konzept update to the new framework. I’m working on final adjustments. This one will support:

  • links on slides
  • thumbnails with external links
  • any custom code slides

Since it’s almost ready I’m wondering if you’ll be willing to wait. It shouldn’t take more than ~7 days. It will also support WP3.6 (this one is coming 29th April 2013).

Default-user

Hi Flow, Any idea when you’re releasing the update? We really need a solution for the links on slides… Thanks Paul

It’s almost there. It looks like 98% ready already: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept2/ but I’m re-iterating every single subpage and element many times to make sure that it is of good enough quality. It shouldn’t take more than 24-48h before it’s ready. I hope that it’s fine with you!

Hi Flow,

Thanks for responding… Can you give me a workaround? Im building a wedding gifts website for my brother and need to go live this tuesday…

Hope you can help me out

Flow
Flow Author

Please accept my apologies for delayed reply. A few days after you asked this question Konzept 2.0-beta has been released with ability to link thumbnails and text entries to external URLs. In Konzept 1 this wasn’t easily doable even with workaround because thumbnails weren’t links – they were HTML containers with Javascript action attached.

Hello, the theme I have cannot download pictures in the portfolio. I wanted a homepage which can download pictures and I am wondering if this may be possible. Something like a button for downloading.

Flow
Flow Author

Hmm, I’m not sure if I understand.

So, you installed the Konzept theme and the homepage is missing pictures? Did you upload demo XML content as well? You can do that using [Tools > Import]. Soon we’ll introduce “Install Demo” button that will do all that automatically. It’s going to happen in April 2013.

If you need any assistance, please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to visit your website and assist.

Default-user

Thank you for your responding.

But I don’t think I have made my point clear before. So let me try again, another way.

The problem I am having right now is that people who are visiting my website cannot download the pictures that I have up loaded with the Konzept theme.

I would like my webpage to be opened as possible, especially with copying and downloading pictures and contents I up load.

So my question is this: is there a way to make other people copy or download the images I up load with the Konzept theme?

Flow
Flow Author

So, you’d like them to have right-click option on project images? This option is coming in the Konzept update this month.

Hello Flow. This theme does not work on android(mobile) based browser. The menu does not response to touches. And also in the latest version konzept2, image downloading on the internet is possible but on the mobile it is not. Are there any solutions you can suggest to these two problems? Thank you.

Flow
Flow Author

If you’re holding a finger on a slideshow image for longer than 2-3 second in the updated Konzept then iPhone would show its “save image” menu and that would conflict with slideshow’s functionality. To prevent this and other browser functions (like scrolling horizontally and vertically while manipulating the slideshow) we intentionally disabled all such controls.

You can save an image on desktop computers but on touch devices it’s likely to conflict with browser’s touch functions (if they are not disabled).

About menu and Android – that’s why Konzept update is on the way – to improve browsers and devices compatibility. But there’s also another thing to mention – Android is far behind iOS Safari and Chrome at this moment. It requires workarounds or simplified versions of modules.

Hi there, I just purchased this theme and uploaded it into the theme folder. When I tried activating the theme inside the Dashboard, I received the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /home/infinit1/public_html/wp-content/themes/konzept/framework/admin/background-menu.php on line 1

Could you kindly assist in rectifying this issue.

Flow
Flow Author

Can you please install it via [Appearance > Themes > Install > Upload]? This way it will copy exactly the way that it’s prepared. Due to system differences, transferring files from Mac to Linux server (or Windows server) alters line endings and there may be either too many of them or too few of them.

Hi Flow great theme. Question: I dont want the Swipe functionality on my slides on the desktop. the problem is when you use a touch sensitive mouse the it is way too sensitive. is it possible to click on the image to move to the next?

it would me nice to keep the swipe function for a tablet but i would prefer it works perfectly on a desktop. Tony

Flow
Flow Author

That’s possible with Konzept 2 (beta is available on Themeforest).

You’re perhaps referring to Apple’s magic mouse or their touchpad? On my Dell’s laptop with Windows 7 I can use two fingers to scroll and it’s far less sensitive. I would say it’s just fine but I’m using mouse wheel or keyboard arrows to navigate most of the time.

Anyway, that slideshow has API since v2 so you’ll need this version. If you don’t have it installed, please wait till Monday, till WP3.6 release and it would be great if you could migrate to WP3.6 and Konzept 2.

Please create a support ticket and we’ll be happy to assist with disabling this. It requires a short piece of code that we’ll prepare for you.

Thanks Flow. yes I’m referring to mac mice primarily, I guess the track pad would also apply. As a creative professional I find your theme to be an excellent personal portfolio tool, well done.The majority of industry professionals would be viewing my portfolio on mac based systems so for me this is an important feature to control. I have version 2 downloaded but not installed, is the bata version web ready yet?

Flow
Flow Author

I think that technically that mouse is too sensitive. It’s enough to google “magic mouse too sensitive” and there will be dozens of such threads.

We were already investigating this issue and we compared that to Windows devices and they turned out to be much less sensitive.

Some software (like browser itself) can calibrate that easily but high-level programming languages like Javascript don’t have access to such features and can’t manipulate this.

We’re using this script: http://cubiq.org/iscroll-4 I’m not sure how are their demos performing on Mac but on Windows machine scrolling is either disabled at all or very nice. We’re using this feature in particular: http://cubiq.org/dropbox/iscroll4/examples/carousel/

I understand that designers and professionals use high-end computers and many of them use Mac. I wish I could do something about this script but I’m not familiar with possible solutions yet and I would need to contact fellow developers and investigate this.

You can check #5061 on the support forum for the same issue. It’s already marked as bug to be reviewed.

Thanks for your feedback Flow. I agree the mouse is way too sensitive. To be honest disabling the scroll option and replacing with a click option is a perfect solution for me, so its not really an issue. I’ve created a support ticket. if you could send me the code to disable this, and possibly where to insert it. that would be much appreciated. Tony

Yup, iScroll library seems to have disabled that as well for touchpads. I can’t find your support forum ticket to paste the code. Was it created today?

Hay there sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I was away. I’ve loaded Beta 2 and this seems to have sorted my problem. There’s still a little sensitivity with the mouse but it doesn’t seem to me as bad. limiting the scroll between projects/pages worked a treat.

Dear Sir, Later this year we will launch a revolutionary series of dietary supplements that will turn the dietary supplements market upside down, so we need the best, most attractive solution for our online product presentation. So far we understand the Konzept theme is able to accomplish this important task. We have a question for you: Several times you have mentioned here in the Comments section that you will launch a MAJOR update that will be built on the Daisho framework/platform, do you have any idea when this will be done? And which are the new features that we can expect in this MAJOR update? Please answer this post, and please answer it as detailed as possible so that we know what to expect. Many thanks for your kind help!

I’m replying with a slight delay because just yesterday we updated the trial website to v2.0-beta: http://trial.devatic.com/ and I wanted to share this link along with reply.

You may want to test it :) It is indeed major structure update that makes it work more like all other themes.

So, everything like posts or pages is now similar to default WordPress theme – Twenty Twelve. The only structural thing that is different and unique to this template (besides overall design) is portfolio.

@Martin__ download again the Konzept (from your Downloads section here, on TF). Open the .zip file. Inside Konzept folder you’ll find the “future releases” folder with Konzept 2. It’s still in beta as the devs say but you can work with it. I just tried.

With out editing CSS can i change the transparency of the overlay color on a thumb in it’s control panel? Thanks

Flow
Flow Author

At this moment there is no such setting in admin panel. I held on with response because we recently updated trial website to the Konzept version from 26 April. In this one you can use the following code under [Konzept > General > Custom CSS Code]: .konzept-thumbnail:hover .thumbnail-hover { opacity: 0.9; } and that will lower the opacity.

I hope that helps :)

Current beta version available on the trial website doesn’t allow that but soon we’ll add a shortcode that will allow you to launch a project on start.

It allows any static page as front page under [Settings > Reading] so you have a lot of possibilities.

HI THERE FLOW, AMAZING THEME. BUT IM A BIT SCARED BUYING IT. I TRYED THE DEMO AND FOUND IT VERY COMPLICATED. IT’S HARD TO FIGURE OUT THE STRUCTURE OF THE SITE.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE KONZEPT LOGO WITH MY OWN? HOW DO I ORGENIZE THE PORTFOLIO? HOW DO I STRIP THE THEME DOWN TO MEET MY OWN NEEDS? IS IT A WINDOWS COMPATIBLE THEME?

ALL THESE QUESTIONS CIRCULATE IN MY MIND.

Flow
Flow Author

I’m glad that you like it :) The answer is very simple:

  • if you’ve used Twenty Twelve default WordPress theme then everything is the same (pages, posts) and everything is editable in exactly the same way. The structure of files is the same like in other themes because that’s a WordPress standard.
  • and in addition to everything that WordPress and the default theme have by default we created “Portfolio” section that you can use (or don’t use at all if you won’t need it) to create portfolio works. Then you can create portfolio pages under [Page > Add New] by picking “Portfolio Template”
  • you can replace the logo under [Konzept > General].
  • it’s compatible with any server that the WordPress is compatible with (localhost WAMP for Windows, localhost MAMP for Mac, UNIX servers and Windows Servers).

So, my recommendation: please don’t buy and theme yet. Instead:

  • please play around with WordPress itself for a couple days,
  • please try free WordPress themes from their repository: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/
  • you will then find out what is a part of WordPress and what themes add (in fact themes, including Konzept, add very little additional functionality – they mostly change presentation of the content only so when you’re saying that you’ve found it very complicated then I bet it’s because you’re new to this platform and it’s better to get to know WordPress first before purchasing any themes).
  • once it stops being complicated and you’ll get an idea of how it all works, it will become easy to understand and use Konzept and other themes from themeforest as well :)

I hope that helps! Thank you for asking that before purchase! Feel free to ask additional questions.

Alright! We’re in the process of updating documentation and other data for Konzept 2 – http://docs.devatic.com/konzept2/

And the last question: Is Konzept 2 free for the ones WHO bought Konzept 1? Should I skip to Konzept 2 beta or demo???

Flow

Please create a support ticket because I’m not sure if you have installed v1 or v2-beta. Only in the second version you can create multiple portfolio pages.

Also, Android issue has been sorted out in v2. I’m not sure about v1 but I think that we didn’t provide all CSS background properties back then and now all of them are available.

Yes, you’ll find Konzept 2.0-beta in the package from Themeforest – it’s free :) I recommend using this one even if it’s in beta stage. More: http://support.forcg.com/topic/konzept-2-3

Hi flow,

I installed the 2.0 beta, I cant see how to activate the slideshow setting for the main page instead of grid based layout? is this still to be added?

Flow

Yes, it’s going to be an option with shortcode. We deleted “Slideshow” section from admin panel and you’ll be able to set one of the projects as the front page instead. Here’s the updates schedule: http://support.forcg.com/topic/roadmap

will only be able to select one project for main page? so fullscreen slideshow homepage won’t be an option?

Fullscreen slideshow homepage will be an option but I think it’s better to simplify this into just 1 section of admin panel instead of introducing entire “Slideshow” post type. That’s what I’d like to do and restore it :)

I added some extra images to my slideshow but only about 8 of them are showing up… Is there a maximum or is this a glitch? Please let me know if I can fix it? Thank you.

Flow
Flow Author

Yes, “Featured Slideshow” has limit of 8 images. That’s because it’s not recommended to load many large images at the beginning. It’s a far better idea to start with something light (especially if we consider mobile phone and tablet users). This limit was made on purpose – merely in intention of improving experience for your visitors.

I have a problem linking directly to portfolio items. If you click on the thumbnail from the homepage then the slideshow appears, everything works there. If however you copy the link and try and access it directly then it returns a 404 not found page. Any idea what might be causing this?

I think that this will help:

  • Please go to [Settings > Permalinks] and re-save them,
