First, sorry you took it as a threat. Not my intention at all. Yes I agree that part of the rating system is exactly for the purposes you described. But if a theme has a weakness in it i.e., something it does that is not expected then it is marked down.

That weakness is the inability for the projects to be ordered. I know how WordPress works with post and pages and the like and how they are assigned a date when entered and how to adjust that date using the “published on” tab in the dashboard.

What I am saying is that no matter what date I publish on, or how I try to change it using that publish tab the order does not change at all when I view a project page. If I’m wrong, apologies to you. But I don’t think I am wrong on this. I’ve tried it repeatedly.

Then I find the post on your support forum dated 08-03-12 that brings this to light.

http://support.pixelentity.com/threads/565-Request-Project-Ordering-in-a-Portfolio?highlight=project+order

Your response on that post is we’ll keep this in mind for future updates. Again my perspective is that ordering should be easy in WordPress and this is a whole in the theme. And therefor the themes inability to order projects on a page is unexpected as I had no idea that post existed when I purchased the theme, and therefor the 2 stars.

The rest of the them is beautifully done and should you “update” this as you mentioned on your support forum then is will deserve 4 stars maybe 5.

Really, in my mind I did not make an incorrect prediction about the features of your theme. And I have no inclination to “punish” you. Try and see it from my point of view please.

Hi,

You will notice that user posted his comment as a “it would be nice in the future to have this feature” and didn’t post it as “your theme is weak because you don’t have a feature I want”.

If the lack of a certain feature make your purchase a 2 star theme, then you could have contacted us before buying to ask if a feature is included. All themes in TF will have WP core functions and some extra custom functions. The custom functions will be described in the file description page. We don’t mention this as a feature in our description, so to assume it was there was your mistake.

Changing publish dates of projects works fine. We have changed the publish date of project 23 in the demo of the Mentor theme so that it comes after project 24. As you can see from the following link, it gets sorted accordingly in all portfolio pages, related projects and single project pages (next/prev). http://mentor.themes.pixelentity.com/portfolio-1-col/

If you wish to discuss this further feel free to contact us via our profile page. We’ll keep your feature request (sorting other than by date) in mind for future updates.

Hi-

I’m unable to use photo inline flush right in articles. It just creates a black area the width of the article, including the picture, and then the copy starts underneath it. like this…

http://martialartistatlarge.com/about-ben/

Is this a glitch? How can I fix it?

Thanks

pixelentity

Its mentioned in our help docs under the lightbox use. You cannot use the lightbox on inline floated images like the one you are trying to use.

To fix this, in the editor click on the image, then the image properties icon, then remove the url which WP auto attached to the image. This will remove the lightbox and should allow your image to float.

If you have any further questions, head over to our Support Forums and open a thread there about the issue.

It seems the template is limiting the depth of pictures I use as featured images in blog posts. Can I not use any depth picture I want?

Thanks

I’m also having an issue with the lightbox. I’m not able to disable it for featured images for blog posts. And when it does open, there is no “Close” box or graphic. Ideally, I’d like a click on the photo to lead to the post itself, or to disable it altogether.

Thanks

Hi,

Is it possible to remove the Carousel on inner pages but keep the sliders?

eg: http://www.drnadinesamir.com.au/cerec/ where I want to remove the “Meet our Team” section.

I would like to keep it on the home page though.

Hey Pixelentity, I love this theme!

I was wondering if there was any way I could make the icons in the sidebar, next to the contact info, larger?

Thank you!

Hello—I love the theme and would like to purchase, but I noticed the formatting on mobile devices (iPhone, for instance) display strangely when viewing the blog section. There horizontal lines that separate entries lose their margin/padding, and the headlines become separated from the text/body of the posts by a large white space. Are these formatting quirks able to be fixed? If so, this is a sure purchase!

pixelentity

Hello

mentor was tested against ios/android devices and we didn’t notice any formatting issue. You can send us a screenshot using the form on our themeforest profile page as well as device/ios version (do not post links here)

Hi.

Is it possible to change the height of the slider? I’m looking for a theme what has smaller slider than most of the themes on themeforest. All themes here tend to have massive sliders what take up most of the fold on most screens. Thanks

pixelentity

Yeah, that would be a single edit in a template file: to change default height (450) to the value suiting your needs.

Considering this one. It says 3 skins, is it not possible to input a custom skincolor?

pixelentity

Hi,

Apart from the 3 included skins, you would need to do it manually. To this end, the theme’s admin panel has a “Custom CSS ” filed where you can input CSS to change colors/styles of any item. Alternatively you could just customize the styles in one of the existing 3 skins.

DOK

Default-user

Ok, thanks…

One more: Is the slider height fixed or can it be smaller/lower say 350px i.e?

pixelentity

Slider width/height are configurable

Default-user

Thanks!

One more:

Can we have two portfolio pages each showing only one or more categories? Is the AJAX sorting feature based on standard WP tags?

pixelentity

Hi, Yes you can have multiple portfolio pages each showing projects from one or more project tags (see below).

The sorting is not done based on categories or standard WP tags, which are related to blog posts only. The portfolio is made up of projects (custom post type) and each project is assigned one or more project tags by the author at creation time.

Hi, great theme.

Does this theme come compatible with joomla? If so where can I find it?

pixelentity

Hi,

Thanks for your interest. Unfortunately there is currently no Joomla version of this theme.

Hi, just a random question… Is there any way of converting the html files that you offer to be compatible with a joomla platform?

Thanks for your quick response

pixelentity

Hi,

Well yes, if you are a Joomla developer, there is nothing stopping you from buying the HTML version of that theme and converting it to a Joomla theme for your own use. (Can’t be sold though).

DOK

Hello,

If one does the Joomla conversion that you mention, is it possible to use the custom widgets? Is there any advice in the documentation? I am interested in converting this HTML5 template with all the features to Joomla 3.0.

Thanks

pixelentity

Well right now those widgets are WordPress Widgets, so you would need to build them in Joomla and they would need to use the same javascript and markup.

If you were going to try converting mentor to Joomla, would wouldn’t buy this WP version, you would buy the HTML version, found here: http://themeforest.net/item/mentor-premium-responsive-business-html5-template/2374421

Hello, I’ve a problem, my galleries inside pages have black background, where can I change it? Here an example: [link removed]

Also, when the lightbox open the only way to close the image is to press the “ESC” key. Is it possible to close the big image when you click anywhere in the screen?

Thanks!

Mentor is great. Can you tell me how I can change the format of a project page top photo on top and copy underneath… so I can have only copy without a big hole where the photo would have been?

Also, how can I have different photos for the thumb and the actual project page?

Thank you!

So far your theme has been excellent expect there seems to be a small bug. It seems that when I add an HTML widget or Text widget it seems to be stripping out all of the ” / ” out of the link. For example ->

Any thoughts?

Is there going to be a fix for Wordpress 3.5? A client updated on accident and broke the media gallery and video plugins :/

PeThemeVideo.php and others throw errors with 3.5 as well as control panel is not working.

Hope we can get this awesome theme working with the new media features in WP.

Amazing theme 5 stars! :)

pixelentity

Hi,

This has already been fixed, just tell your client to download the theme again from their Themeforest downloads page.

Great! I seems like the theme has 1 (one) textdomain in WP.
