Hi, thanx for this great theme!

I have a similiar question, like others about tiles for pages. I’ve read this answer from you:

The post tiles are retrieved from WordPress’s blog posts and sorted by date, so I’m sorry to say that you can’t manually position the tiles and by default, there can’t be pages tiles located in between the posts tiles.

However, you can still add pages tiles into the post tiles through a bit of code modification as shown here : http://www.wpmu.org/how-to-show-wordpress-pages-on-your-homepage/

When you are using this method, however, the pages will still be ‘pushed’ when there are new posts being added as they are sorted by date.

I’ve tried the method you mention (actually there are 2 variations) but they didn’t help me. Nothing happend after I changed the function.php or made a plugin. But, I saw on your demo page, that there is a tile with a link to an external site. (HTML5) How can I create such a tile, which links to an external url?

Thanks, lameron

billyf

Hi lameron,

The tile which links to an external site is done by creating a normal post with post format set to ‘link’. Then, you can insert the link in the field and when a user clicks on the tile, he will be brought to the link’s location (just like in the demo).

If you still have any doubts, don’t hesitate to contact me again.

Thank you.

Thanks!

This solved now all my tiles questions:) This is how we can have tiles for pages, too. Just forward people with a link to a page.

Thanks again! lameron

Hi lameron,

No problem :) Just don’t hesitate to ask again if you have any problems.

Have a good day!

Thanks for your help so far – I have one more question.

I’m planning on using this theme for a company site, and not so much as a blog. So, most of the pages would be “pages” and not “posts” – but I would like to use the tiles to display different product categories/sub categories. I can still use your template for this, correct?

Also, I can set the dimensions of the tiles? So, if I wanted them to all be the same size, it would work?

Thanks again!

p.s. – do you have an email?? that might be easier….

billyf

Hello,

No problem :) You can use blog posts of ‘link’ format which link to your pages so that you can still customize the tiles at the front page. The dimensions of the tiles can be of either Large, Medium or Small and they will work with any of these (either all of the same size, or mixed).

Actually, for a company website which doesn’t have frequent updates, you can consider the HTML version as well (since you aren’t using the blog). It’s not just cheaper, but also more flexible ;)

You can actually send an email to me via the ‘Email’ box at the lower right corner of this page : http://themeforest.net/user/billyf

Thank you!

Thanks again!

And can I use the tiles in other places? To display a group of products in a category for example?

THanks!

billyf
Of course you can :) The category pages can be of either Small, Medium, Large or List. I have used ‘List’ in my WP demo, and here is how ‘Large’ will look like (this demo page is actually for the HTML version) http://billyf.site11.com/Matrixdemo/blogtile-large.html

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

Thank you.

Hi,

Amazing theme! before i buy is it possible to have the tiles on the front page go to pages rather than posts? going to the actual page rather than that pop up.

Also would i be able to chose which tiles show and stay on the front page?

Cheers, LH

billyf

Hi leehart,

Yes, but with a little bit of work :) You need to create a new post with ‘link’ format in order to use the tiles (the post doesn’t need any content, since nobody can see them). Then, you paste the URL of the page in the field and the users will be brought to the pages when they clicked on the tiles.

As for choosing the tile, I guess by making them manually using blog posts, you are already ‘choosing’ them ;) However, you can always make the post ‘sticky’ to let it stay at the top, in case you still want to have blog posts.

If there’s any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me again.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend :)

Hi,

I’m glad that you have solved the problem :) I looked for a while and thought to myself : ‘Where is the problem?’. Then, I saw your second sentence and that immediately cleared my doubt ;)

Hi i have a problem with the theme i have 12 entrys link type each redirect to a page in my site but when you do a click in a image of the entry it redirect to the post and no to the page.

Some times the url is correct of the page and the page exist but the theme show 404 page. why?

billyf

Hello,

Can I know where did the problem happen? I clicked on all the tiles at the homepage and they redirected me to their corresponding pages. I also didn’t get any 404 error, so I need more details like where that happened and how it happened.

Thank you.

Is it possible to have a more expanded menu like I do here songofshambhala.com?

billyf

Hi philipwhite,

Can I know more precisely about what you meant by ‘expanded menu’? From the link that you have given, I can only see circles which keep redirecting me from one page to another. Is that what you meant by ‘expanded menu’?

If that is the case, then this theme does not support that because it is not just a navigation menu, but a totally different approach in the design philosophy. The kind of menu that my theme supports is in the live preview, which is, a dropdown menu.

Thank you for your interest. If you still have any doubts, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hi,

Is there a way that I can change the tiles on the home page so that when the mouse hovers over the top it displays the name of the post rather than the category the post is in.

For example on http://lonexplorer.com.au when hovering over the first post it says ‘Greece’ I want it to say the name of the post.

Thanks

billyf

Hello,

Of course it is possible :) I just need to edit contact-tile.php. If you have modified that file, please send it to me so that I can make the changes without affecting any modifications made in the past.

Anyway, just send an email to me with your request so that I can send the modified file to you.

Thank you.

Hello billyf, I have another problem with images. When I create a new site, and then put there images for example 250×500 it resize to width of the site and it looks not pretty. How to set up to not resize size of images?

billyf

Can I know where did you put the image? If possible, I would like to look at the page directly if you don’t mind giving the link to me.

Thank you.

In latest articles ,how we can set animation(time) rather than mouse over?

billyf

Can I know more about what did you mean by ‘setting animation(time) rather than mouse over’? The tile animations do have their duration which can be set when you are configuring ‘Tile Settings’ for the post, whereas the mouseover event does not trigger any animation.

Thanks.

billyf

Hello,

Unfortunately, this is not possible without significant amount of code alteration because it is done using CSS by default. Making it behaving like tile animations in the homepage will need Javascript, as well as backend changes if each item were to have different duration / speed of animation.

hello, so this theme is great, exactly what i wanted and the lego men on the about page sold me! i am having an issue (sort of, it doesn’t seem to be affecting how the theme works as far as i can tell). i get:

Broken Themes

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

Name Description Matrix Template is missing.

on my theme selection page; i have uploaded via ftp and the wordpress uploader and it occurs either way. any idea what i’ve missed?

billyf

Hi unclefarkus,

Thanks for purchasing my theme :) I’m just wondering which file did you upload? You need to upload either Matrix.zip or Matrix-Light.zip, not the main downloaded file.

If there’s any problems, feel free to contact me again.

Thank you.

Thank you, another install helped it to work quite well. I am now curious how difficult it is to make all of the text in the helvetica family? From what I’ve messed around with in firebug, it makes the formatting screwy. All of my logos and other existing stuff is in helvetica so this would be nice. I’m also noticing that the Segoe UI font doesn’t read on iphone and is converted to a serif font. Advice on this would be great thanks!

billyf

Hello,

Actually there’s only one line which determines the font to be used. It’s located in style.css line 34. If you aren’t sure of how to do that, you can just send me the login details to your WordPress admin panel and I’ll change that for you (assuming that the files can be edited via WordPress’s Appearance > Editor).

Otherwise, you can also send me an email and I’ll send the modified style.css to you with Helvetica instead of Segoe UI.

Thank you.

Hi Billyf,

I recently purchased this theme but I am having trouble creating a video tile. What is the format for the embedding that you need to enter in order to embed the video? I have tried entering both the url and embed code from a youtube video and neither one worked. I also tried entering the url from a vimeo video but that redirected me to the vimeo site and the iframe embed code for vimeo didn’t work either. Thanks for your help.

billyf

Hi muvdigital,

Thanks for purchasing my theme, but as a standard practise here, I cannot provide support until you have verified yourself as a buyer either by posting the question using the account you have used to buy the theme, send your purchase code (licence certificate) to me or just send an email using the account which you used to buy the theme.

Thank you for your understanding.

hell0! Is there any way to keep a tile format (big small medium) on the main page while updating new blog content and not having tile shift around out of porportion.

billyf

Hi eatessami,

The posts will remain in its tile size assigned to it in the ‘Tile Settings’. Also, the default tile size assigned when you create a new post also depends on what you set in the ‘Archive Tile Size’ in Theme Options. For instance, if you use ‘Medium’ tile in archives, ‘Medium’ will automatically be chosen when you create a new post but you can change it to other sizes if you want to.

If the tiles change their size when you post new posts and ignore the tile size set in ‘Tile Settings’, it sounds like you have used index-fixed.php instead of index.php. The former file is just experimental and is only suitable if you haven’t used any tile image (only use solid colours and icons). The latter (index.php) is the one which will be used by 99.9% of the users ;)

If there’s still any problem or that I have not understood your question correctly, please do contact me again.

Thank you.

Dear billyf, I’m thinking of buying the Matrix theme, it would actually fit my needs very well. There’s one thing, though, that I don’t understand. I’ve tested the Matrix demo version on different smartphones with Android, iOS and Windows 7, but on none of them the Photolux theme is displayed correctly, meaning that the complete website is simply scaled down. But the whole point of a responsive theme is that it adapts the website layout to the browser size … do you have any explanation for that?

billyf

Hello,

Thanks for your interest in this theme :) It is indeed a responsive design, but when you are viewing the live preview, you do need to close the ThemeForest banner at the top because that is not responsive, so the website will appear scaled down instead.

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

Thank you.

PS : I’m just wondering what is Photolux that you mentioned above?

Default-user

Hi billyf, thanks a lot, now it’s working. Great!

PS: Forget about the “photolux”, I was mixed up.

Hi ^

http://jeonggil.com

mobile ver -> monologue(category),

1. first post (17 DEC 2012) click,

2. popup view, ‘read more->’ button disabled.

I wanna put some music, so.. when I write, format option is ‘audio’.

Desktop ver is work well.

But Mobile ver is not work.

pls checking ^

billyf

Hello,

Thanks for the clarification. From what I see, there is a fixed height for div.jp-controls-holder in your style.css at line 3433. You should remove it because that is the cause of the problem.

When I checked at the style.css of all versions of this theme, it is not there. So this seems to be an isolated case.

If the problem persists after removing the height property, feel free to contact me again.

Thank you.

Hello,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! Can I have a look at the admin panel to ensure that all the settings have been set correctly? It sounds like the theme hadn’t been installed successfully in the process of the installation.

http://www.atsboss.com/Test is where its installed

admin windows8theme

please let me know what was wrong with it so i can fix it in my next installation thanks!

billyf

Hi,

It’s just that you haven’t saved the settings in Appearance > Theme Options. All you need to do to ‘solve’ the problem is to click ‘Save All Changes’.

Thanks.

PS : Perhaps you should change your password for that account if you don’t want others to login to your WP and make changes there.
