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.

mopc76

1. Currently categories can be separated only for different portfolio pages, i.e. one portoflio page shows Location categories, another one Skill. Do you want categories to be shown on one page, but grouped?

2. Actually you can change the ratio of content block/image block on the portfolio page. Currently it’s 3x for the description and 6x for pictures. You can make the pictures block narrower this way: open file single-portfolio.php, line 32,
<div class="pic block-6 zero-mar">
change 6 to, say, 3. Is this what you need?

Hi,

Purchased second copy of theme for site: www.disputeresolvers.com

1. That works fine. 2. Made that change. This is the first time I have amended the php files. I am concerned about managing these changes when you upgrade the theme and the files are overwritten. Can I set up a child theme?

With 2. although the space is now available for a picture I cannot seem to work out how to import it. I tried “Don’t click “Insert into post” or “Insert Gallery” button, just upload images and close the popup.” But nothing is added. As i have resized the space is the new minimum width 460px?

When I try to insert the picture it ends on the left side. see here: http://www.disputeresolvers.com.au/resolver/jennifer-scott/

Hi,

yes, you can try to set up child theme, but it think it’s easier to make this minor change once again when you will upgrade the theme. (if you make child theme you will replace single-portfolio.php file with your own, but original file could contain new features with new theme version).

As for the picture, please write us via contact form ( http://themeforest.net/user/mopc76 ) and provide us temporary access to WP-admin, we will take a look.

Thanks for your great Support.

1. Go with your recommendation – no child theme 2. Worked it out. Just had to delete the existing photos that were there and reload them. What would be the ideal file size (width) for people to supply photos of themselves to fit in a 3-Block space.

3.New question on Portfolios, which I have made People on this site. I have say 20 portfolio categories (skills) for each person, say writing, reading, singing. For each separate category I want to write a specific portfolio page that deals with just that ability. I then select for each different page just the category it relates to. So far so good all works fine. But because I am using the same photo for each person, the ALL Categories display shows multiple photos of the same person. Any solutions? Can I just delete the ALL categories button?

4. Also is there any way to put a caption (name) under the photos displayed in Portfolio Masonry view.

Thank you

mopc76

Hi,

2. Actually pictures will be resized automatically. The original size for 3x block is about 456px of width.

3. well, I suppose deleting “ALL” button is the easiest way – to do it, add the code into “Custom CSS” field under “Theme Options – Extra code blocks”
.sort-menu > li:first-child {
  display:none;
}

4. Unfortunately there is no such an option and changes needed for it are not just a couple lines of code.

No problem with the photos. I can add the names via a graphics program. I converted this site over wholus bolus in two days. The post photos are very small 88×127. Can you advise a preferred size for the featured image it looks square to me?

Re ALL button. Added the Code and ALL button is gone. However, there must be a piece start up code that calls ALL the photos to start with. Could I set the portfolio category that is called at the start? I will have about 5-10 separate categories for each person so there will be a lot of similar faces. I am thinking I will set each person to a separate category (like MEMBER) only once then choose that to be the starting category so every photo will only ever appear once.

Do you agree this is the best way. I would be happy to hear your suggestions?

AMAZING SUPPORT I have read some comments of people having difficulties with this theme. This is by far and away the best Wordpress theme I have ever used. It is solid and very polished. I converted over an entire site from an older theme in two days. Even I am amazed I could do that in such a short time and the result is fantastic – the theme just shines. Plus the support is legendary. These people go out of their way to help you solve the problem and better understand how to make things work.

Jus t a quick add-on. I am using page names and have turned off using categories on Portfolio pages and bread crumbs.

How can I remove the white space at the top of the page (I assume is left there for them).

mopc76

Hi,

the minimal size for portfolio 3 column item featured image is 480×328 px. For the masonry portfolio – 480×480px

As for the ALL/MEMBER button – yes, I think that will do. The only thing you will need is to add couple lines of code to make possible to open certain category by default: open file js/custom.js, after the line 680
$container.isotope(args);
add new code block
if(document.location.hash) {
    $links.filter('[href$='+document.location.hash+']').click();
}

then you will be able to open certain category by default with such a link: http://www.disputeresolvers.com.au/all-dispute-resolvers/#adjudicator

as for the white space: actually it’s a part of design but you can reduce this white space by adding the code into “Custom CSS” field inder “Theme Options – Extra code blocks”
.page-h1 {
  margin-top:0;
}

Another Quick one:

I want to turn on “Random Items” to be shown in Portfolio view but change the words “Random Items” that is shown on the page to “Dispute Resolvers”.

Still looking at the ALL button issue.

Used your code and it did what I thought but still have a duplicate.

Sorry to pursue this but it is important to get it to work cleanly as the main function of the site is to search for people and serve up a different profile for each person specific to the type of skill searched for.

Can I try it this way: I have redefined the ‘ADR’ category to include every portfolio profile once only. So even where the person has duplicate profiles, only the main one will be shown when the ADR category is selected.

I have brought back the ‘ALL’ button. Can the ALL button now be redefined to select every portfolio that has category=’ADR’? This way I can use the ALL button again but hardwire the search to remove duplicates?

If I am asking for too much, maybe you could point me toward the code to play with.

Thank you.

mopc76
Random items title can be changed in the file single-portfolio.php, line 128
<div class="widget-header"><?php _e('Random Items','om_theme') ?></div>
As for the all button – probably it will help, open file template-portfolio-m.php, line 75, in the code
<a href="#portfolio-thumb" class="button single-color active"><?php _e('All', 'om_theme'); ?>
change #portfolio-thumb to #adr and call the page http://www.disputeresolvers.com.au/all-dispute-resolvers/#adr

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.

mopc76

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

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

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

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.

Hi,

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

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…

mopc76

jeffcampagna,

please, clarify, do you need custom CSS to change the background of the arrow on such a link: http://grab.by/jjzo and the background of this block: http://grab.by/jjzu separately from the option under “Theme Options – Stying – Hightlight color”?

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;
}

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

Hi,

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