no valid projects, what’s going on

Flow

I’ve replied to a similar support ticket a couple of hours ago: http://support.forcg.com/topic/no-valid-project

This issue was happening in 1.x versions and it’s fixed since 2.x versions are available (since May 2013). It’s a good idea to update to 2.x versions someday in the future. They are significantly better in every aspect.

I hope that helps!

Hi Flow,

Very nice theme. Is there a way to add intro title and text… similar to the homepage of Daisho?

Thanks!

Flow

Hello and I’m glad that you like it!

You mean this text above the portfolio grid that we call “Welcome Text”? By default it’s not possible to have it but this isn’t difficult to be implemented there. It only has like 10 lines of PHP and HTML and a couple of lines of CSS.

Hi, Great looking theme. Is it possible to have a full screen video background as the splash page that when clicked can direct to the portfolio page?

Flow

I’m glad that you like it!

It’s unfortunately not possible by default. You can have a slideshow that looks like this though: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept-dark/?featured=true

You can test it here: http://trial.devatic.com/

Default-user

Yes this is exactly what i’m looking for except starting the page with a muted video on loop, is this possible? Is this slideshow feature included in the theme or will it be included in an update?

Default-user

I’m on the trial site and when I click to view the slideshows I don’t get whats here – http://themes.devatic.com/konzept-dark/?featured=true Regarding background video – I see there’s options to have upload in three formats mp4, webm and ogv, where would i host the videos? Can Dropbox be used or is it better to host with your web host provider? What file size and resolution would you recommend the video to be so it doesn’t take long to load? Many thanks.

Default-user

Sorry to bombard you with questions – is it possible under each project category on the cover page it says ‘Our role’ can this be changed to say ‘My role’? Thanks

Flow

1) This slideshow is included. It can show two or more slides. It’s best to show at most 5-6 because 10-20 may be too heavy for the first page that visitors see.

1a) It supports images and background HTML videos (not muted, looped, without controls, autoplayed). It doesn’t support YouTube and Vimeo in that place. YouTube and Vimeo are supported in projects only.

1b) You can host the videos in Dropbox but Dropbox has daily download limit which may be easily crossed if you use it. It’s best to use your “Media Library”.

1c) Please use the demo videos as reference. They have 5-10 MB and 1920×1080px resolution.

2) It’s possible to translate all the strings using the standard WordPress’s translation methods. A brief guide: http://support.forcg.com/topic/translating-themes

I hope that helps :)

Default-user

Many thanks for the helpful info. Regarding the translating/changing text to me the 2nd method sounds simpler why is it not recommended? Do you know any tutorials/help on how to achieve the change with poedit if that’s recommended? Do you also know of any good preloader plugins that will work with this theme – such as a percentage/loading bar for just the homepage before the video loads? Thanks for the support.

Flow

1) The second method isn’t recommended because you won’t be able to update the theme later on without losing the changes. More about translating WordPress, themes and plugins (mechanisms are the same in all the themes): http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

2) The video should be streaming live so it should load and start playing quickly. Not all servers support that but most do. If there is some visible delay then I’ll have to take a look at the live website. I think that it comes with preloader image but it’s almost never visible.

You can’t use plugins in that place because they don’t know when the video loads and they don’t know when to remove the preloader.

Default-user

Thank you, i’ll look into that. Just another thing – if the theme is the light version but when using the homepage slides – the logo and menu becomes almost invisible against the dark background. Is it possible to change the CSS for just the homepage so the logo and menu is visible?? Many thanks.

Flow

Please accept apologies for delayed reply.

Skins can’t be mixed but the body tag gets a special CSS class when the slideshow is there which can be used to style that differently. My advice would be to not change styles though but to use only light images in that place. On the demo I didn’t do that but real websites usually do that – they pick one color version and build on it.

hi love the theme. on the home page i am not gong to have an filterable items. so how do i remove the word all works?

Flow

I’m happy to hear that!

You can remove “All Works” words using: .pf_nav li a[data-project-category-id="all"] { display: none; }

You can remove this entire column using: .pf_nav { display: none; }

Both pieces of code should go to a child theme or [Konzept > Styling > Custom CSS Code].

Hi, Is there no way to be able to keep the theme in the original version (white) but change the menu colour to white for the slideshow so its more visible? Thanks

Flow
In /wp-content/themes/konzept/modules/library-iscroll4/slideshow.css you can use the following on line 150: .has-featured-slideshow .site-header { background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.3) !important; }

Currently it is set to fully transparent background color: .has-featured-slideshow .site-header { background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0) !important; }

Hi Flow,

Awesome theme =). I have a problem with the visual editor of the “pages”, is not showing up… i have only the HTML editor. There is a way for activate the visual editor or what?

Thanks!

Forget it! I solved the problem ^^

Great :) Both editors should be there.

Greetings, again. I have updated to the latest version. 21 and couldn’t be any more grateful.

How do I edit/add the ‘about me’ on the author page?

ref: <?php echo $curauth->description; ?>

Regards.

Flow

In archive.php you can add get_the_author_meta('description') in archive.php. The description will look like here: http://themes.devatic.com/konzept2/tag/layout/

Hi! I’m having an issue with the latest version of Chrome. The project’s detail page close button does not work right. By pressing it, the details page gets closed, but the close button and the social sharing icons stay on their place at the right top corner and main navigation can’t be used.

Flow

Can I take a look at that please? Is it the newest theme version?

  • Has been a member for 0-1 years

Hi, do you know some reasons why the html5 video on the slideshows keep crashing/not loading? The size of the videos are less than 5mb each and i’m on chrome? Do you know what the problem could be? Thanks

Flow

Can I take a look at that please? Is it the newest theme version? Have you used the demo’s video files as reference? They have good dimensions, size and encoding.

It’s also a better idea to use YouTube or Vimeo rather than your own video files. Their players are smart and ready to serve correct version of videos for various devices and screen resolutions (unlike self-hosted HTML5 videos).

Default-user

I’m not sure, my friend did the site for me as i have no idea about these things. The site is www.aketonik.com it’s the slideshow videos that are the problem and for some reason the text has come out really large (not like the demo version i see as your example). Thanks

Flow

The videos seem to be alright. They are of very good size, dimensions, quality and correct encoding.

Both videos loaded for me instantly when I entered your website using Windows 7 and Chrome. What browser are you using? Have you tried other browsers and other computers?

Default-user

It’s strange because two days ago the videos kept crashing/not loading and now they’re ok. Also do you know why the headline text is a lot larger than the demo? My friend says he’s reduced to size to ‘120px’ and it still looks big?

Flow

In style.css you have .featured_slideshow-meta-title { font-size: 120px !important; } which does that and it overwrites all of the responsive styles. It should be removed.

You can edit line 76 in /modules/library-iscroll4/slideshow.css to decrease default 140px to 120px.

hello I have a problem… I want to add video and I test with vimeo, youtube and also on local ftp…

The video work on Windows (Firefox, Google Chrome,...) But on Mac os it does’nt work on Firefox… (v27 with last flash plugin) It work on Mac os on Google Chrome and Safari

In Firefox (mac os) the page is black or with a loading curor…

Could you help me? thanks a lot David (www.thepickles.be)

Flow

Updating to v2.1 should help with this. It disables CSS3 properties for the container that videos are placed in.

Mac has some issues with graphics rendering and CSS3 animations that use GPU acceleration: http://support.forcg.com/topic/trouble-with-vimeo-displaying-in-portfolio

Sooner or later this should be fixed by Mac and/or browsers for that system. On Windows nothing like that happens in any browser.

Default-user

could you juste give me a list with files to change to debug this? I prefer don’t update to v2.1 because of many transformation I made…

so I replace the module folder with new files.. other to replace? thanks a lot David

Default-user

yeah!! it’s OK with your link :) thanks to you!

Flow

Great :)

The differences between 2.0.2 and 2.1 are minor but nonetheless they affected major files like style.css, /modules/ folder and other template files.

It’s advisable to do changes in child themes to be able to update themes later on – http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

As for the link with bug report, there are a couple of solutions and I implemented one of them in 2.1 until it’s resolved in Mac.

Hiya, You’ve got a nice theme! I have a question here. How can I remove the social icons on the portfolio pages? The twitter, facebook and google+ on the top right corner next to the big cross.

Thx. JC Design

Flow

I’m glad that you like it!

Please have a look at “Project View – sharing icons – hide” – http://support.forcg.com/topic/konzept-common-changes

Or you can remove their HTML as well in project-container.php if hiding them isn’t enough.

Default-user

Cool, it works. Hiding is enough for now.

Thx a lot.

Greetings once again!

How do I add the search Icon on the HOMEPAGE? Homepage is a page with featured SLIDESHOWS.

Flow

Yes, in header.php on line 72 you’ll find if(is_home() or is_archive() or is_singular('post') or is_singular('news') or is_attachment() or is_search()){. It should become if(is_home() or is_archive() or is_singular('post') or is_singular('news') or is_attachment() or is_search() or is_front_page()){.

And also in style.css .blog .compact-search, .single .compact-search { display: block; } has to become .home .compact-search, .blog .compact-search, .single .compact-search { display: block; }

Thank you!

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

hello, two presale questions:

- is it possible to modifiy the menu (now the menu has two columns: left column for about services etc and right column for portfolio. Is it possibleto have both columns for simple pages like about, services, etc)? - Is it possible to disable page title? -Did you test it with a page bulder?

Thanks.

Flow

1) Those columns are generated with different WordPress functions – one lists menu items from [Appearance > Menus], the other lists categories. You can style them differently to have for example:

  • both columns merged,
  • one hidden,
  • menu items can be placed horizontally,
  • etc.

2) Page title can be hidden with CSS – example: .page-title { display: none; }. Or, if no title is specified in admin panel then it won’t be printed.

3) I haven’t but this theme is based on Twenty Fourteen’s framework so most plugins will work just fine with it, including page builders. I’ve once tried Visual Composer and it worked fine at least in large part.

Default-user

Hello, thanks for the answer. I want that the column with categories is replaced by a second column with menu items so that the left column shows menu items and the right column shows also menu items, for 8 – 10 pages. Is this possible?

Flow

Yes, in header.php you can adjust that to use http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_nav_menu twice. It can load two separate menus from [Appearance > Menus]. PHP/HTML part is as easy as replacing a single line of code but CSS may require additional tweaks that I can’t foresee at this moment without doing such modification.

Hi,

Is there a way to add additional fields to the cover-slide, to accompany: date, client, agency, project role, etc.?

Thanks!

Flow

Current labels have individual styles (left fields are one line long by default, the right one is three lines long) so adding the new ones will require styling them accordingly to consider cases where the left ones are higher than one line etc. It basically requires custom style depending on what additional labels would you like to insert there and what length will they have.

You can see ‘Project View – more labels except “Date”, “Client”, “Agency” and “Our Role”’ in http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes (it’s the same for Konzept) but it’s rather for advanced users.

Default-user

Thanks! If you don’t mind me asking, would it be beneficial to write this special feature as a plugin rather than changing the core files? I ask because I’m concerned about updates to the theme and how it affects any custom code. Custom CSS is a non issue in that regard—I assume, but those functions could be, right?

Flow

Instead of writing it as a plugin I’d recommend using a child theme – http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

You would have to update project-container.php (PHP loading on direct project entrance) and /modules/functions/portfolio.js (JavaScript loading without page reload). Also, JavaScript relies on data generated by PHP in project-loop.php so the array that this file generates would have to be extended with additional custom fields.

Using child themes increases the chances that after updating the theme, it’s still going to be all right.

Default-user

Thanks! Another question: Do you know of any resources where we can adjust your .page-header in php. I’d like to remove it on a particular static page and avoid CSS to hide it. Thanks again!

Flow
  • You can hide it with CSS: .page-id-1234 .page-header { display: none; }. More: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/body_class
  • You can remove it in either page.php or content-*.php. The file and HTML structure from the default WordPress themes are used in almost every place (with minor changes). If it now says <header class="page-header">[...]< / div> then you can change this to for example <?php if(!is_page('1234')){ ?><header class="page-header">[...]< / div><?php } ?> to display it everywhere except for the page with an ID of 1234.

UPDATE: ThemeForest comments strip some HTML but I hope you get an idea.

Default-user

Cool. I’ll give it a shot. Will this work in a child theme’s page.php or content-*.php? Also I was wondering if there were any examples that show all the different combinations of your symple shortcode elements? I didn’t see anything on the Konzept live preview.

Default-user

UPDATE: Worked like a god-damn charm! Thanks, Flow. Now, about those pesky elements. They’re really nice and I’d like to see some examples of their usage! Great theme.

Flow

Symple Shortcodes plugin is updated independently. Here is its page: http://wpexplorer-demos.com/symple-shortcodes/

This theme modifies its styles a little bit in the parent theme’s style.css and in the child theme’s style.css.

You can use any other shortcodes plugin if you wish – most are styled to fit themes that have black text on white background (just like Konzept with the default skin).

Default-user

Hi! I have another question. I’d like to add a “featured-posts” feed (limited to the latest 3 articles) to the homepage and was wondering where the “blog” template is. I couldn’t find it. I was successful in registering a widget area to attach the wordpress widget “featured-posts” to, but it isn’t in the same format as your blog section.

Flow

The blog template is in index.php (like in the default WordPress themes and most other ones). This contains very useful information about template files: https://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

As for registering widget areas it’s best to do that in a child theme by using the code similar to the one from /core/sidebars.php.

As for ‘featured-posts’ feed that lists three posts I’m not sure (a) where would you like to insert it and (b) how should it work. If you deliver me some mockup then I’ll be able to provide you more information about that.

The blog can have a sidebar that you can set in [Pages > (your blog page) > Layout]. Maybe it’s not necessary to add a new widget area to the blog page template (index.php).

Default-user

Thanks. I got it all sorted out. One more thing: I saw you’re using this shortcode [content_block post_type=”news” posts_per_page=”5”]. What are the parameters for that? I wasn’t sure where to look and couldn’t find it with symple. Thanks!

Default-user

Nevermind. I’m stupid. I found the parameters in your documentation =P.

Default-user

Actually, I’m confused. What’s the purpose of the news posttype when there’s a blog? Is there page dedicated to a news feed? I know you can set the reading in wordpress to specify a blog page. Is there something similar for the “news”?

Default-user

Sorry but, I can’t get any other posttype to pass in post_type=”name-here”. It defaults to “news” =(

Flow

“News” aren’t present anywhere on the demo but some people wanted to have short “news” and long “blog posts” so we created this post type:

Most people (9 out of 10 I guess) will only ever use blog and this “news” carousel was created for a small group of people.

Yes, post_type=”name-here” defaults to news. It’s a bug discovered a few days ago. I fixed it already but I didn’t upload the updated package here yet.

In /modules/shortcode-content-slider/content-slider.php please replace 'post_type' => 'news', with 'post_type' => $class['post_type'],.

Default-user

Gotcha! Thanks. WIll you be uploading a newer version of Konzept anytime soon? Or is it better for me to make the core change myself?

Flow

You can safely do this little change once you already know that it’s going to appear in this form in the future. Yes, I’ll update Konzept after WordPress 3.9 update (mid-April 2014).

Default-user

Great! Thanks. Love this theme by the way!

Hi there. Great work you are doing. I am, however, facing difficulties with my attempt to disable the “all works” navigation in the main nab element. How do I do this? Thanks in advance.

You can do it with .pf_nav li:first-child { display: none; } that you can insert in your child theme’s style.css or in [Konzept > Styling > Custom CSS Code].

hey Flow! fantastic theme , i have a question what if i want to make my homepage a full cover image and in center of want a menu?? whats your views then….

Flow

I’m glad that you like it!

What you describe is rather possible (the theme has simple HTML structure and short and simple CSS that can be adjusted) but you’ll surely need a help of a developer to accomplish that. Ideally, please contact one of the developers from http://www.microlancer.com/explore/wordpress-customization and provide them mockups of what are you looking for. They’ll be able to tell you how long will it take them to modify it like that then.

Hi. I have messed up my site by tampering and altering the CSS files and maybe som of the php files. Is it possible to re-install the theme, without having to upload all photos again? Thanks in advance

Flow

Yes, you can just rename /wp-content/themes/konzept/ to /wp-content/themes/konzept-backup/ and upload the theme files again to /wp-content/themes/konzept/ folder.

You’ll have a backup copy in /konzept-backup/ folder and a fresh v2.1 in /konzept/ folder. You won’t have to do anything else in the admin panel or elsewhere to make it work.

Default-user

am I doing the renaming in the WP interface (appearance/editor)? Or do I rename the files I am uploading? I am a little confused as to where I am going to do this. Regards

Flow

You’ll need to login to your server to do that. You can’t do that from within admin panel without deleting the theme first.

Guide: https://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients

Default-user

ok. I have done that. All links to photos and background img are broken and there are no portfolio items on my page. Any idea, what might have gone wrong?

Flow

Which version was that?

If that was 1.x version from 2012 then I recommend updating it to v2.1 from January 2014. A few very early versions (2 years ago) stored uploads in /wp-content/themes/konzept/includes/uploadify/uploads/ but it’s been changed pretty quickly to /wp-content/uploads/.

Updating guides:

The updating guides mention this change. In your case you can copy /wp-content/themes/konzept-backup/includes/ folder to /wp-content/themes/konzept/includes/ to have it working again.

Default-user

hmm. I have updated my theme to v2.1. I am not able to choose Frontpage to Homepage, as shown in the Konzept Documentation. Also I am not able to copy /wp-content/themes/konzept-backup/includes/ folder to /wp-content/themes/konzept/includes/. I don´t have these folders. I don´t have any backup folder. Could it maybe help to clean the database?

Default-user

If nothing else works, I am willing to do a master reset of everything, if that is even possible?

Flow

You don’t have to clean the database. But if you didn’t have much content, you can start from scratch and install it like seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjT7UdCuvig

To clean your database you can delete and create it again in the control panel of your server (control panels vary from server to server so there are no detailed instructions on how to do that).

In v2.1 you can set your homepage in [Settings > Reading] – it’s the usual way present in default WordPress themes and in most other ones as well.

Hi Love the theme, i’ve built our site using Daisho (another great theme) but want to migrate to a cleaner portfolio based layout such as Konzept. I have a few questions. 1. Is there a dedicated support forum for Konzept? 2. Is it possible to skip the portfolio page that has the text, title, date etc and simply link to the slide images? Thanks in advance, Lee

Flow

I’m glad that you like the themes!

Daisho appeared three months after Konzept and Daisho is actually an iteration of Konzept. It’s very similar to Konzept and they only major difference is in the way portfolio works. Portfolio has been improved/changed after we have analyzed the feedback we had received.

In case of Konzept people were suggesting that we add support for forms on slides or for text slides with vertical scrollbar. Many things like that are not doable so we released Daisho – a theme whose portfolio looks like a normal page and thanks to that allows any data (unlimited text, forms, shortcodes, any external media etc.).

So, technically Daisho has a little bit better design on a fundamental level but if you’re sure that you’ll only use Konzept to showscase images and YouTube/Vimeo/HTML5 videos then it’s perfectly fine.

1) Yes: http://support.forcg.com/

2) Yes, in [Portfolio > (any project) > Display Cover Slide].
