Hi mopc76

I like this theme so much that I am going to use it on another site.

I understand that I should just purchase it again.

Do I register it under the same name or a different user name? I do not want there to be any confusion.

Thanks

mopc76

I think you can choose any way as you prefer.

For the new site I need to have Portfolios (people) segregated in 3 different ways: 1. By location 2. By practice 3. By skill

I have tried this out and have two problems:

1. All of the portfolio categories are mixed up together. Is there any way now (or for a future update) that the different portfolio categories are separated:

Location: Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania Skill: Butcher, Baker, etc

2. I have an image for each person. When you click on this image it goes to linked page but the text is only on the left third of the page. Is there any way to get the page to be laid out normally across the page with a right hand sidebar.

I have already set up formatted pages for each person but I understand that they cannot be linked because of the need to keep the “Custom portfolio URL directory” different from the root portfolio page URL slug.

Thanks for the further advice – but it still didn’t work cleanly so I have reset everything and want to start again. Can I just ask for your advice rather than provide ad hoc suggestions. Also I think the solution would have wider usage.

The problem: 1. I have 5 (or 50 people) 2. they can each have 4 different skills, A,B,C,D 3. each person has one photo

I want to show a page of all Skills to choose from, it would have the headings A B C D

When you click on A you would see 5 photos representing 5 people and if you click that photo it would show a page (Person1-SkillA) about that persons particular ability with skill A

When you click on B it would show the same 5 photos but they would link to different pages (Person1-SkillB)

Thats all quite straight forward. The problem comes about because the theme calls all of the photos at the start when the Skills page is shown with 5×4 =20 photos 4 of which are the same for every person. This is the problem.

Knowing how the theme operates is there a simple way to configure portfolios to show multiple pages for each portfolio without the above problem?

Thank you.

MedArb,

unfortunately there is no standard way to make portfolio work this way. I think the only solution is to make this way (and you was close to it):

1. Remove standard ALL button.

2. Add some additinal category which will work like ALL button, but will hold only one card from each person, say the name of category “All persons”.

3. Open main portfolio page by link http://www.disputeresolvers.com.au/all-dispute-resolvers/#all-persons

Sorry I just got lost along the way. Nice feature for another theme!

Hi, i have the Metrostyle Theme and i wnat to know, how i can make a full with side.

mopc76

Hi,

do you mean full width page without sidebar? If so, just use “Full-width template” for the page http://grab.by/jhw8 .

Galleries in the left column seem to press against the edge of the content area whereas galleries on the right (last) column leave a huge white space. Is this by design? I have sent my examples to you via private message.

mopc76

Hi,

you have added custom CSS code
.eat-left {
margin-left: 0px;
}
which breaks standard layout. Also you have divided page with columns shortcode – it’s not the same as on such pages http://demo.olevmedia.com/metro/portfolio/ipad-app/ . So gallery shows as many columns as it could be fitted. Empty space which left is not enough for one more column to fit there.

Ok. I will put the eat class back to normal and maybe stop relying on columns so much and give the ‘aligned content’ shortcodes a go…. Thanks.

bmp81 Purchased

I changed the following in the CSS which seems to have nudged galleries right a bit more.

.eat-left { margin-left: 50px; }

Is that the right way to do it?

mopc76

bmp81,

it’s better not to change this class.

Hallo,

wie kann ich ein Full-width-Template erstellen ohne Sidebar?

Hello,

we don’t speak Deutsch, but I suppose you need it: http://grab.by/jhw8

Is it possible to align a whole gallery to the right? EG: have say tabbed content taking two thirds then have a gallery in the remaining third which then overflows below the tabbed content to fill the page?

mopc76

bmp81,

unfortunately it’s impossible to make gallery take 1/3 of the page and then turn to full-width.

Hello,

How to write into a page with the template: Portfolio 3 column? I need to write an introduction text for each portfolio but it doesn´t save.

thanks,

Percy

mopc76

Hi Percy,

if you need add content into portfolio 3-column page open file template-portfolio.php, after the line 60
<div class="clear page-h1-divider"></div>
add the code
<?php the_content(); ?>
then you can add the content to this page via editor.
Default-user

thanks mopc76 but I add it in template-portfolio.php, save and I add text on my page via my wordpress editor, refresh and no happens nothing. Beside, I have 4 pages with the same template and I want to put a different intro for each one.

Great and fantastic theme!

I have just one single problem with the contact form: the form fields are not high enough so the field title can not be read. How can I influence the field height so that the font is displayed correctly?

Thanks in advance! Uli

mopc76

Please, disable bootstrap plugin, because it adds it’s own styles to the form, that’s why it’s corrupted.

The problem is solved now. The bootstrap-JS came with the “Download Manager Pro Plugin” for WP. I’ll try a different plugin now…

Thank you for your advice and your kind support! Greets from Germany! Uli

Great theme!

I’m having an issue with the gallery. After adding images to a gallery, I can’t see that any have been added, and clicking view I get a 404. When I insert the short code on a page nothing shows up. could this be an issue with a temp domain?

Any help is most appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey love the theme and its working great. Is there any way to change the order of the category tabs in the portfolio section? I think right now its alphabetical? You have All – Consulting – Development – Market Research I would like it to read All – Tuesday – Wednesday – Thursday – Friday

Thanks

mopc76

Hi,

you can try to do it this way: open files template-portfolio.php, template-portfolio-m.php and taxonomy-portfolio-type.php, find the code block inside
$arg=array (
    'type' => 'portfolio',
    'taxonomy' => 'portfolio-type'
);
and change it to
$arg=array (
    'type' => 'portfolio',
    'taxonomy' => 'portfolio-type',
    'orderby' => 'slug'
);
that will sort categories by slug. Then, you will need just to fill the slug field this way: http://grab.by/jhyo (i.e. add number before slug to apply correct sorting)

Hi,

If I may suggest a function that I think really would lift this great theme and I really miss in most themes, then it would be the implementation of a print stylesheet, enabling visitors to e.g. print articles with nice formatting for print without all the navigation and sidebars.

It would also be optimal to include a possibility to specify a print logo in the backend (if the site e.g. uses a negative/white logo, that will not print well) AND a possibillity to specify a logo that is e.g. 700 pix wide but only show as 350 pix, thereby dubling the resolution for print and making the logo look nice in print.

mopc76

Hi,

thank you for suggestion, we will try to include this feature with future theme updates.

Is there a way to show a title in the homepage blocks?

Thank you,

Hi Alessandro,

I suppose you can just use H1/H2/H3,.. heading at the beginning when edit block content.

Hi, Mopc76, I have some question as below:

1. If gallery have 4 photos, how to add these gallery (4 photos) in pages ?

2. How to show portfolio in homepage?

3. How to add sidebar? I want to use ” product list” as name. If I have product A, B, C, D, how to show on sidebar? Moreover, how to show menu on sidebar? There are some widgets, but I don’t like these widgets, only want to show menu and product list on sidebar.

Could you help me? Thanks a lot.

mopc76

Hi,

1. Do you mean gallery under section “Gallery” in the WP-admin menu? If you, you can insert such gallery in the page using “Custom Gallery” shortcode.

2. If you want portfolio page to be your homepage – choose it under “Settings – Reading – Front page displays – A static page (portfolio page)

3. Sidebar can be filled only with widgets that are listed under Appearacne – Widgets. If you want to place some custom content in the sidebar – you can use widget “Text”.

Default-user

can I take menu to sidebar ?

mopc76

You can use native WordPress widget “Custom menu” to add the menu to sidebar.

Another quick question. I have not been able to figure out the CSS to change the color ONLY on the Prev/Next Post button background AND the Post Date background (both are default set to #686868). Thanks…

Default-user

Exactly! Also, the Background of the Post Title beside the arrow when hovering.

mopc76

Hi,

to change the navigation color add the code into “Custom CSS” field under “Theme Options – Extra code blocks”
.navigation-prev-next .navigation-prev a:before,
.navigation-prev-next .navigation-next a:after {
  background:#FF0000;
}

.navigation-prev-next .navigation-prev a:hover,
.navigation-prev-next .navigation-next a:hover {
  background:#FF0000;
}
as for the post date – the code:
.post-big .post-date {
  background:#FF0000;
}
Default-user

Perfect! Thanks so much!

Hi Is there an easy way of changing the “chain link” icon on image rollover? Thx

mopc76

Hi,

you can try to change icon, it’s located under wp-content/themes/metro/img/link-big.png

I’m having issues uploading images for some reason – the site works fine, but every time I try to upload media, it says that it can’t upload to the upload folder and to check permissions. Permissions are set to 777, so there should be no issue there. Thoughts?

mopc76

Hi,

unfortunately this question is not about the Theme, it’s about WordPress in the whole. I suppose you can try to ask about it you web-hosting support.

Hello again. I have a google map embedded into the right column of the footer. Works well apart from when I start to resize the window. The whole site shrinks correctly apart from the map which stays the same size and eventually hangs off the edge of the footer column. I considered just putting an image of a map (which will auto-resize) and link it to the Google maps page (_blank) but it’s not the same. Do you know how I can get this resize within the confines of the footer column?

mopc76

Hello,

you can try to insert Google map into the footer using “Custom Video” widget. It will make the map responsive.

Hi! Many thanks for the great help you have given to me and countless others so far. It’s really incredible effort on your part! I have a quick question. I was hoping I could make the picture area on the front page slider extend to the bottom of where the text appears (so the boxes would appear square). I have ‘inspected’ all the css and I can’t find how to do this. Is it possible? The site is gregorydaniel.co.uk/cbss

mopc76

Hi,

unfortunately it’s not about changing couple of lines in the CSS file, there are much changes needed to achieve it.
