Hi,

Great theme. I read that you’re working on a Wordpress version. Do you have any idea when this might be available? In a month, two?

Cheers,

Tom

Thanks for your interest in this item :) I am now prioritizing the development of the WordPress version due to popular demand, so I expect it to be available in roughly a month.

Again, thanks for your patience ;)

Hi, great template except that (at least in the demo) some way of loading more “tiles” on the homepage is not possible. Something like the Load More Posts arrow at the bottom of mykindofphone(dot)com would be possible? Thanks!

billyf

Thanks for your suggestion! It will definitely be available in the WordPress version, but I think I should include it here as well :)

Great! I’ll watch this space then and wait for the update. If I might ask a little favor, don’t do it like “one page” with ajax endless scrolling (see famousthemes(dot)com/paper-notes, click and drag to turn pages and you’ll see what I mean), or something like that, because than if there will be many posts the page will slow down. Instead I would prefer turning onto separate page (2, 3 etc.) when clicking the arrow (like a classic HTML template does).

Hope that this is clear enough and not way too demanding. :)

Great work, looking forward to the improvements, will purchase after they’re applied, let me know by comment what you think.

Thank you,

billyf

Hi, I am clear about your request, thanks for showing an example and it certainly looks interesting :)

I didn’t add it initially because I thought page-linking with ajax would be quite difficult (i.e. if you want to view page 5, you have to click through the pages every time you come to the website). But I will add it as an option in the WordPress version, thanks for suggesting it!

billyf

Just to let you know that AJAX pagination has also been implemented :)

If you are still interested, do check out the light version as well. Thank you!

Nice template, but it looks awful in Firefox. The reason is font sizes. I’ve had that problem with other templates I purchased from themeforest and fixed them by assigning font size: 12px etc. instead of 100%. 100% in IE and Safari looks great, in Firefox it looks unacceptable. I’ll purchase anyways, but I wanted to give you a hint first. Thanks for overall good work.

billyf

Thanks for your feedback! However, I am not very sure about the problem because I am using em and px (in certain instances) instead of percentages for my font, can you please further enlighten me? It looks about the same when I opened it in Firefox, Safari and IE.

Thank you.

Nice theme. Tempted to buy but it needs better browser support. It looks horrible in IE7 . Would be nice if it lost some features but kept appearance.

billyf

Thank you! I would want to add support for more browsers, but IE7 requires a lot of hacking in order to display it as close to the intended appearance as possible (yet still not looking the same).

Since I thought that a large number of IE7 users should have probably upgraded to IE8 via Windows Update, hence I didn’t include IE7 as one of the supported browsers because even with heavy modification to the original code, it will still not come close to what’s in my mind.

how can i change the twitter widget with my account!?

amazing template!

billyf

It’s extremely easy to change the twitter widget with your account, just as what Harrientinthecity said : 1) Open scripts/javascript.js file, scroll down to line 107 and change it to your username. 2) You may also change the number of tweets to be displayed at line 109.

If you still have any problems, feel free to contact me.

Thank you.

I found a way to get the twitter feed to show by editing a single line of the javascript file—changed a single field to show my username (see below). That was it. Didn’t change anything else. Put a test message in Twitter and it showed up right away. Still, I’d like to figure out how to add the twitter widget directly, but nothing I tried work. Opened a ticket early this week and haven’t heard back from ThemeForest (due to holiday weekend???). In the short term – try editing the javascript file) in the field indicated below:

//Twitter on tile

//Username
var user = 'PUT USER NAME HERE';
//Number of tweets to be displayed
var tweetcount = 4;
billyf

The script generates a list of tweets at #tweeter, so you can have your tweets displayed at anywhere as long as the parent container has id=”tweeter”

I’m sorry that I’m not very clear about what you meant by adding the twitter widget directly. Perhaps you can shed more light on it and I’ll try to help you out :)

Thanks for purchasing my template!

The widget we were referring to is html script generated by Twitter to paste (imbed) in the main source code (no javascript required). User specifies size, color, etc and the Twitter spits out the appropriate coding to use.

When I did that, however, the twitter feed ended up hiding behind the first tile rather than in the one reserved for #tweeter. Here’s the direct link to Twitter’s widget page:

https://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets

Still, the javascript is working fine and I love the overall look of the template. Just was hoping to imbed the script so I have the full “Twitter” look on the feed. :)

billyf

Hi,

Thanks for making it clear. To use the script generated by Twitter, you just need to copy and paste everything into the widget container (for sidebar widget), or into the .tile container with its size (for main page).

If it still doesn’t work, you can attach your files and email it to me so that I can have a look and I’ll try to solve your problem.

Thank you.

Thanks billyf,

You’re amazing. That worked perfectly. I love having both options. Thank you! Your template is going to put me way ahead of my writing peers. I’ll send you a link when I’m all done. :)

billyf

You’re welcome! I’m definitely looking forward to what you can do with my template :)

Hi, there is an 404 error on your example page: http://billyf.site11.com/Matrixdemo/portfoliotile-large.html The right articles go to singleblotpost-1.html instead of singleblogpost-1.html

Any updates on the author profile page please?

Sharry

billyf

Thank you so much for purchasing and reporting the bugs to me :) Right now I am working on the WordPress version (about 60% done), so I will include the author profile page in this template at the same time as the WP version is done, which I expect to be around a month’s time.

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Hi again:-) Can i make (with your template ) a block with facebook status like that image? sorry if the question don’t seems very clear… Walter

billyf

Theoretically it is possible. However, I’m sorry to say that I do not possess enough knowledge in Facebook’s API to be able to create such feature. Perhaps you can try asking someone who has been making Facebook Apps to help you out with it.

Thanks for your understanding.

Nice theme. I want to buy it now. Do you know what type of blogger engine I should use with this template?

billyf

Thanks for your interest in this item! This is a HTML version, so it is not built to run in any engine unless you convert it.

However, I am pleased to inform you that a WordPress version is already in progress and hopefully it will be released within a month. Thanks for your patience :)

hey, i wish a wordpress version :) thx.

billyf

Thanks for your interest! I’m already working on it now :)

billyf
The WordPress version has already been released now. It has everything in the HTML version (except the Twitter tile at the homepage, but I’ll work on that soon). http://themeforest.net/item/matrix-responsive-wordpress-theme/3215443

Do check it out if you are still interested :)

Thank you!

Awesome template, I’ve been loving it so far but was wondering if you could help me out. Is there a way to make it so that there can be multiple subcategories selected instead of just one?

billyf

Thanks for the compliment :) I’m sorry that I’m not very clear about what you meant with having multiple subcategories selected. Can you tell me which part of the template does that refer to?

Is it the category of the post which is shown at the corner of the tile, or the category at the single post page, or something else?

Thank you.

Hi

Great theme!!

I bought this for my wife’s food blog and have implemented it here

http://exquisito.com.au/

using concrete5 as the cms.

It was very easy to integrate a big thank you.

One issue I seem to be having is it is not auto scaling on the iphone/ipad/andriod however on the demo it does.

Am I missing a library?

Im sure it is something minor

Thanks in advance

billyf

Hi,

Thanks for purchasing my template! You are right, it’s really something minor. Just add this line between the <head> tags (I put it before <title> in my demo) : <meta content=”width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0; maximum-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;” name=”viewport”>

Thanks and feel free to contact me if you have any problems :)

PS : Just by looking at the pictures of your wife’s food has made me feeling hungry right now :p
