hi. I have a question about the height of the flexslider images. is there a way to limit them? if you click on the top left image on http://purefolio.com/jkhotels/# you’ll see the large image taller than the actual file. is it possible to make it respond to the height of the browser window?

thanks

billyf

Hi pirco,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! Actually, in this case, I would recommend you to make it a portfolio item so that it will use the portrait layout (i.e. half of the lightbox showing the image, the other half showing the content) but I think you only want the images to be shown (and you’ve already made the modification).

Only either the height or the width of the image can be limited. So, since they are already limited by their width, the only way you can alter this is to make some customization such that you can assign an image class name to the img tag (using custom field). Then, in the CSS, you can set the height and let the width be auto so that it will now be restrained by its height.

Thank you.

Hi,

I want to buy this theme, but need to know if there are .po and .mo files, so that I can translate the theme into Danish?

Looking forward to your answer :-)

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your interest in the theme! Yes, both files are supplied by the main download package and even includes translation to German.

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

Thank you.

Hi, I need you help… When I like update a post, say:

“Not Acceptable An appropriate representation of the requested resource /wp-admin/post.php could not be found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

Please help

billyf

Hi crossingchile,

That has nothing to do with the theme as it is pointed to a file in WordPress core.

If this problem appears after installing a new plugin, I’d advise you to remove it. Otherwise, you might need to manually edit your .htaccess file or contact your webhost regarding this issue. Here are some people with the same problem and some suggested solutions : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/an-appropriate-representation-of-the-requested-resource-wp-adminoptionsphp

Thank you.

Hello, please can you tell me how to set the default state of the first toggle-able area (flexslslider and quotes) to be enabled as standard?

billyf

Hello,

I’ve linked this to the answer at HTML version since they use the same toggle and the same method is applicable to this version as well : http://themeforest.net/item/matrix-responsive-tilebased-template/2761654/comments?#comment_5787094

Thank you.

Hey Billyf,

I’m trying to make the blogs come up on a different (news) page on the menu, but nothing I do makes it come up. I’ve tried changing the settings as you’ve suggested in other comments, but the blog posts never show up. Any advice?

Hi Ellaineg,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! Unfortunately, as a standard practise at ThemeForest, we authors can only provide support to buyers who have verified themselves by either contacting us / posting comments using the account used to buy the item, or send the licence certificate via email.

Thanks for your understanding and sorry for any inconveniences caused.

Default-user

Strange – this account was used to buy the theme. Okay, I’ll send you an email.

Hi billyf! Could you recommend a live chat and forum to integrate into my website? http://leftside.fr/ I can not find anything that fits this theme… Thx in advance!

billyf

Hi david49,

Unfortunately, I don’t have any recommendations as I don’t use live chat / forum. Perhaps you might want to search for those with greatest popularity as that usually indicates better documentation / support.

Thank you.

Hi Billyf – great theme.

Quick noob question – after install the is one tile which i think is a portfolio tile that goes in to a blog scree. Where do I change settings for this tile?

Thanks

Matt

Default-user

Sorry Ignore that – the problem was between the keyboard and the chair. Not much sleep! Could you send me the code to change Categories on Tiles to Titles on Tiles? Thanks

billyf

Hi Matt,

Thanks for purchasing my theme, I’m glad you sorted it out.

To change the categories, open content-tile.php and search for this line :
<span class="tile-cat <?php echo $show_post_colour; ?>" if="" echo="">><?php if (!$category) { echo 'Uncategorized'; } else { echo $category[0]->cat_name; }?></span>
Replace with this :
<span class="tile-cat <?php echo $show_post_colour; ?>" if="" echo="">><?php echo $post_title; ?></span>
Edit : I think there’s some problem with the formatting, the code is not showing up correctly. Basically you will replace this : <?php if (!$category) { echo 'Uncategorized'; } else { echo $category[0]->cat_name; }?> with this : <?php echo $post_title; ?>
Default-user

Thanks Billy I got the original email and made changes but didnt see the ‘EDIT:’ you made untill now – Do I revert back to the original and then make just that change in your edit?

Also the theme options are not displaying now – is this becuase they wont if you make changes to the themes PHP files?

My website is starting to look great btw!

Thanks!

billyf

Hi Matt,

You will only use the changes I mentioned in the Edit, not the previous ones as the code is messed up when it is formatted here.

As for the Theme Options not displaying, I’m not sure which files you have modified but you are correct in saying that changes in those PHP files can result in problems at the backend (especially if you have modified functions.php file without knowing exactly what are the effects of your changes). I would suggest you to replace those files with the original files included in the main download package and it should work again.

Thank you.

Hi Billy, love the theme. Before I buy I just have a couple of questions:

1) Will I be able to set out the homepage as shown here: http://www.idg-share.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Matrix.png

2) Will I be able to set one of the tiles to pull through the latest blog post?

3) Are the tiles widgetized? I am using a plugin called Interactive Map that allows me to display an interactive map of the world via a widget. I would like this to be on the home page in Tile 6.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers Matt

billyf

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your interest. Regarding your questions :
  1. It is possible, but not with the default state (i.e. what you received upon buying). You can achieve that by hiring a coder to do the extra coding to create a new size for Tile 1 as that size is not available by default.
  2. I’m not sure what you intend to do by this. By default, each tile represents a single post and they are shown as latest posts. Can you elaborate more on this?
  3. Unfortunately, they are not. Each tile only represents a post, although you can manually code it such that a tile will be pulling a widget and displaying it there. You can even use Google Map API and size it to a size of the tile and with the correct element class, it will be shown as a tile as well. Of course, this requires a lot of coding and it is advisable to get an experienced web developer to do it.

Thank you.

Hi. I want to buy this style but before I need to solve some questions.

1-Can I set a page where inform about age conditions and when user says ok redirect to the home page?

2-Can I set some of the tiles in the home page to link to another pages of the site? (i.e. I want to set a page with whois info, another with author media, ...) Can I set some of the tiles pointing to this pages or every tiles points to posts of the blog?

3- Every Tile must show and image or can I set some of the tiles to show text?

4- Can I put and image as a background?

Thanks for all.

Hi GorgiasB,

Thanks for your interest in my theme! Regarding your questions :
  1. This is not a function of a theme (which is just the look of the website), but a backend function which isn’t there by default in WordPress. Perhaps you can try searching for a plugin for WordPress but it’s definitely not available by default in this theme, nor is it available by default in most other WordPress themes.
  2. Yes. You can first create a blog post as usual and set up how you want the tiles to look. Then, change the post format to ‘Link’ and put the link of the page into the relevant input field. With this, a user will be redirected to the link of the page when he clicks on the tile at the homepage.
  3. The tiles will show either images, or solid colour, or solid colour with an icon, all of which can be found at the live preview. The tiles do not show text but if you know how to code, or that you get a web developer to do it, it can be achieved. Basically what the theme can do is already shown at the live preview and if it isn’t there, you will probably need to do some extra coding to make it look the way you want it to be.
  4. Yes, the website background can show an image, which is what you can see at the live preview, unless you meant a background in another area which I hope you can further clarify in this case.

I hope these have cleared your doubts.

Thank you.

Hi, Billyf, i need to use my website with the footer of the home page to have widgets, i read some comment but i didnt found the answer, could you help me. Thanks!

billyf

Hi elvisn22,

Thanks for purchasing my theme. Unfortunately, it is not available by default (as you can see in the live preview, there is no widget area at the footer nor is it mentioned anywhere on the item description). You will need to either code it or hire a WordPress developer to add it into the theme.

Thank you.

You responded to Hairy with a link to a comment about changing the responsive design to always show the full version of the website with the tiles on the home page. It says this page does not exist when you click the link. Can you please explain how to make this change? Thanks!

billyf

Hi MindyBowman,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! Can I know whether you’re referring to this comment? http://themeforest.net/item/matrix-responsive-tilebased-template/2761654/comments?#comment_5787094

Do you mean you want to make the toggle contents open by default, or that you want to disable the responsive design so that the website is shown in ‘full’ (needs zooming) in mobile devices with small screens?

Thanks for clarifying.

Default-user

Yes, that was the comment I was referring to, but now that I’ve read it that is not exactly what my question is. My question is when I try to view the website on my phone the first view I get a mobile version with an option to “View full site” at the bottom. What I want is for it to always open in the “view full site” no matter the device.

billyf

Hi MindyBowman,

I don’t think that message is produced by my theme as I have never made a ‘View full site’ link in the theme. Anyway, if you want to disable the responsive view, you may delete this line of code at header.php :
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0" />
That will make the website load in ‘full’ in mobile devices.

Thank you.

Default-user

No, I still want the responsive view. I just don’t want the “mobile” view that I seem to be getting first. Maybe that’s a WordPress thing?

Default-user

This is what is appears to be doing but there isn’t an option under “appearance” on my dashboard to change this. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/mobile-themes/

billyf

Hi MindyBowman,

Can you please disable all plugins and check whether the problem is solved? Otherwise, can you check the live preview of my theme and see whether the same is there? If it is there, it would be great if you can take a screenshot because I’m still not clear what actually is the problem as my theme doesn’t have ‘Mobile’ / ‘Full’ view button at the bottom.

If those buttons / the problem aren’t in my live preview, then they’re most likely caused by some plugins and have nothing to do with the theme.

Thank you.

Default-user

Unfortunately when I check your live preview site on my phone it isn’t in responsive mode. I see the entire home page on my screen. So, I can’t tell if yours is doing it or not.

I’ll check the plugin thing. Hopefully that solves the problem.

Thanks!

billyf

Which phone are you using, I wonder? I am yet to hear reports of the live preview not showing as responsive, and it did show up as responsive when I used my phone to access it. So knowing which phone you used would be helpful in diagnosing any problems with the theme as it’s the exact same file being used in the live preview. So far nobody has complained of the problem you described to me.

Thanks.

My site is http://inmdesign.com ( the Poster Post , right hand side, purple)

billyf

Hi izzraww,

Can I know which post format are you using for the tile? It seems the lightbox-(post format).php file has been modified and there’s a problem with the modification. Please replace that file with those came originally from the downloaded package.

Thank you.

Somethings wrong with the homepage:

http://www.viralment.com/

Can you investigate?

billyf

Hi ejcasanova,

The link which you posted does not use my theme, so I don’t know what you meant by ‘Somethings wrong with the homepage’ when I don’t even know what’s expected of it. Also, I can only give support to websites using my theme (and only problems which arise from my theme, not problems caused by some other plugins or custom modifications done by buyers).

If you have any problem using my theme, please give a direct link to where the problem is and at least a screenshot or description of that problem will be helpful. Otherwise, if a page loads perfectly with all content intact, I don’t see any problems there.

Thanks.

Hi,

I’ve got a few questions: - How can I remove the Highlighted Text area? - And how can I remove the social media buttons on the portfolio pages? - Is it also possible to remove the ‘client’ and ‘date’ section? (portfolio page) and remove the text/block ‘comments are closed? (don’t want to give a comment option)

Thanks in advance!

Hi orangegorilla,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! However, as a standard practise at ThemeForest, we authors can only provide support to customers who have verified themselves by either contacting us using the account used to purchase the theme, or send an email with the questions and the purchase code.

In short, everything you’ve mentioned can be removed but they require code modifications.

HI I’m considering this theme for a panoramic photography website,

do you think it would be possible/difficult to integrate this plugin to have some images scroll endlessly?

billyf

Hi Flatworldcrew,

Thanks for your interest in my theme! I think it might be possible but it will definitely involve substantial amount of coding to make it appear at the homepage tiles. Of course, without putting it into the website, I can’t give a definitive answer to whether there will be any conflicts / bugs once implemented (especially with the tile animations).

Thank you.
