I love the template, after browsing through the demo for over an hour i’m almost full convinced, the only thing I’m hesitant for is the portfolio section, i see it only has one portfolio, yet i will be needing multiple portfolio’s that would have to be independent, is there any way of doing this in the current configuration? if not would this be hard to implement? let me know thanks! :)

mopc76

Hi,

multiple portfolio pages are possible. There is an option which allows to choose which categories to display. If you buy the theme, please see the Documentation, section “Multiple Portfolio pages”.

Default-user

Hi, thank you for answering, what I meant is multiple portfolio’s, I did notice the multiple pages but the problem is it will still be under one portfolio only. I will be using it for a travel agency, so I would need one portfolio to filter under different categories tours in the Amazon only, and on a different portfolio tours with different categories for mountains etc, as it currently is if I’m not wrong it would all be under one portfolio only and it would all be mixed? Can I create multiple individual portfolio’s with multiple pages and different categories per portfolio?

mopc76

When I said “Multiple portfolio pages” I meant “Multiple portfolio’s”. It’s mean that you can create any number of such pages http://demo.olevmedia.com/metro/portfolio/ with different categories, as portfolio index page has an option to show only specific categories.

Hi there, I have set the following on a page design:

[two_fifth_last] YouTube video [/two_fifth_last]

Everything is responsive apart from the YouTube video, any idea what I need to do to sort this?

Sorry I have youtube now responding:

maxwidth="535"]<iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/VQb5caeSo00" height="260" width="535" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe>/video_embed

The only issue I have is setting the height so that is 260, is this possible to do?

carl

mopc76

Hi,

if you want to specify certain height use this code instead of the shortcode:

<div style="max-width:535px;margin:0 auto">
<div class="video-embed" style="padding-bottom:48.6%">
<iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/VQb5caeSo00" height="260" width="535" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe>
</div>
</div>

That worked, thanks for the quick response.

Hi there, please can you tell me how to reduce the footer area to just 2 widgets (remove the middle widget)

Thanks,

mopc76

Hi,

the base theme grid contains 9 columns so, unfortunately there is no easy way to divide footer on two equal columns, it’s possible only with ratio, say 5:4, to do it, open file footer.php, line 14
$is_footer_sidebars = ( is_active_sidebar('footer-column-left') || is_active_sidebar('footer-column-center') || is_active_sidebar('footer-column-right') );
replace to
$is_footer_sidebars = ( is_active_sidebar('footer-column-left') || is_active_sidebar('footer-column-right') );
then block
<div class="block-3">
    <div class="block-inner widgets-area">
        <?php get_sidebar('footer-column-left'); ?>
    </div>
</div>

<div class="block-3">
    <div class="block-inner widgets-area">
        <?php get_sidebar('footer-column-center'); ?>
    </div>
</div>

<div class="block-3">
    <div class="block-inner widgets-area">
        <?php get_sidebar('footer-column-right'); ?>
    </div>
</div>
replace to
<div class="block-5">
    <div class="block-inner widgets-area">
        <?php get_sidebar('footer-column-left'); ?>
    </div>
</div>

<div class="block-4">
    <div class="block-inner widgets-area">
        <?php get_sidebar('footer-column-right'); ?>

Hi there – is there a way to put the blog into a regular page (shortcode?)?

We would like to have the ‘blog lite’ template to fill the full-width of the page without having a sidebar. Please help.

Kindest Regards.

mopc76

Hi,

if you want to remove the sidebar from ‘blog lite’ do the follow: open file template-blog-lite.php, line 8
<div class="block-6 no-mar content-with-sidebar">
    <div class="block-6 bg-color-main">
replace it to
<div class="block-full no-mar content-without-sidebar">
    <div class="block-full bg-color-main">
then, line 154, remove this block:
<div class="block-3 no-mar sidebar">
    <?php
        // alternative sidebar
        ...
    ?>
</div>
that’s all.

Hello,

If I understand correctly post are used for portoflio. Is it possible to have new option in menu that would be called “Products”? I would like to have both Portfolio and Products. Is it possible to have in sidebar product categories (in a case I have Products in main menu)? Could that be done with Sliding Sidebar? Is it possbile to have subcategories in Sliding Sidebar? Tnx

mopc76

Hello,

there is no option in the theme to add “Products” section like “Portfolio”. It’s possible only by modifying theme files. I suppose you can do it if you are familiar with WordPress Core and PHP, but if you need it, all these changes are up to you, because at the moment we cannot provide any custom works.

As for the categories menu – unfortunately there is no widget for portfolio categories. It can be done only with creating the “Menu” and adding it via “Custom menu” widget.

I love the theme and I’m thinking of buying it bu I have a pre sales question; When using the magazine layout for the homepage, it is possible to have the sections update automatically by pulling the latest posts from specific categories? If not, I know there are plugins that can do this but can I use widgets on the homepage and still keep a similar layout to the one you created for magazine?

mopc76

Hi,

magazine layout – it’s just blocks filled with “Latest Posts” shortcode. So they update automatically and show latest posts from specific category.

Default-user

great! Thanks.

Another Question – how easy is it to change the slider if I wanted to?

I would search your user forum, but I can’t seem to find one. You know this theme has sold over 3700 copies, and a searchable forum would greatly help your customers, and would cut down on the interactions for you here.

What is the story with Woo Commerce? Is this theme finished in its evolution, or is this still a possibility?

mopc76

Hi,

our support forum address is http://support.olevmedia.com/ . Actually we have links on the item description page ( http://grab.by/oWyM ) and info on the “Support” tab ( http://grab.by/oWyU )

As for the Woo Commerce – improvements are possible later, we cannot say that the theme finished in it’s evolution, just at the moment we working on a new theme.

Hi Guys.. here is a strange thing…. This is the post: http://mirwebinarov.com/demo/gorsite/?p=1669 and no matter what I do in TinyMCE edit window (even if i lave the text on the first line) it is still displayed below the video.

Of course I can you shortcodes or insert code manually in the text field and the text will appear above…. But the problem is – if I don’t place the code in “Embed Code’ in “Video Settings” then the video is not correctly displayed in category listings and in in category in main page.

So my question is – is it possible to kill 4 birds with one stone: 1. To place the video code in “Embed Code” in Video Settings” and still 2. Being able to provide the text ABOVE the video on the post display.

Thanks a lot. Elijah.

mopc76

Hi Elijah,

unfortunately there is no possibility to add some text above the video if the “Video” post type used. The only thing you can do is to move the video below the text on the post page. I can tell which changes needs to be done if you want.

Hi~

This Theme is so good to us. Now we are setting with our contents.

Then, I just know we can’t change that when portfolio tile action.

We want to change this action, Not just show up something like ‘link’ icon.

How can we change this action?

mopc76

Hi,

there is no option in the theme to change the behaviour of the portfolio preview tile. By hover it shows the “link” icon, by click it brings you to the portfolio item page.

Hi, I have been using this theme for some time now, but just recently the widget twitter feed in footer has not been working? Website: spanglishwebs dot com Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Twitter made some changes with API and it stopped working, but it was fixed with the latest theme version. So, please, update the theme, set up few more option in the twitter widget and it will work again (also you can update only twitter widget – replace the folder widgets/tweets)

Hy

I really love your theme and I am preparing my future website with it.

I have just one suggestion concerning the navigation drop down menu for smaller screens: wouldn’t it look much nicer to customize it to match the design of the whole theme? There’re certainly different kind of styles, e.g. tigerlilyapp.com or sequence.co.uk, but in any case I think it would perfectionate your theme to give some additional styling into this drop down menu.

mopc76

Hi,

thank you for suggestion, reasonable notice. We will consider mobile menu improvements.

Hi,

to fix twitter widget you can update (replace) just widgets/tweets folder.

Hi there,

I am very close to purchasing this theme.

I just want to know 2 things: 1) If we put our own logo, does it get inserted inside the main box where it currently says “MetroStyle” or does the box disappear and the logo get inserted INSTEAD of the box?

2) If we do a single picture post with minimal writing, is it possible to get the writing under the picture instead of next to it?

Thanks!

Default-user

Also, relating to my first question, what happens to the mobile version once we put our own logo? Thanks!

mopc76

Hi,

1. There are both ways possible via the theme options. As for the mobile version: here how it looks on desktop mode: http://grab.by/pnRI and here how it looks on mobile http://grab.by/pnRK

2. Unfortunately there is no such post format. But if you won’t set featured image for the post and just insert an image in the post content – you will get what you want.

Default-user

Hey there, Thanks for the reply.

Just to make sure, when I opened the link you sent: (http://grab.by/pnRK) via mobile, it wasn’t responsive. Is that simply because of the way it was shared?

Thanks again.

mopc76

It’s just a screenshot under the link how the logo looks like on the mobile.

Hi there, is this theme compatible with user login plugins? If thats the case, have you ever tried any plugin in particular? Or could you recommend me one?

Thanks

Hi,

unfortunately we haven’t tested the theme with any login plugin so we cannot say exactly, but I suppose it should work fine.

I would like to minimize the number of plugins I used to reduced the strain on my servers CPU. That is why I am glad that you have built-in code for contact form which I can call using a short code. Unfortunately, it isn’t working lately. I mean, the forms shows but I didn’t receive the messages in the email address I provided in the Theme Options.

It was working previously but after the June update of the theme, I got no messages. i have no idea how many messages I missed. Yesterday, I tried populating the form my self to test but did not receive the messages. Temporarily, I replaced the code using contact form 7 plugin. I hope this will be fixed. Thanks!

mopc76

Hi,

when the form is submitted, does it show the “success” message? Does the contact form 7 work well, do you receive messages from it?

Please, write us via contact form ( http://themeforest.net/user/mopc76 ) provide us your website URL and temporary access to WP-admin, we will try to figure out the problem.
