Hello kluska, just some questions:

1) How can I change the font in the whole site, there’s a fix for the bold special characters?

2) How can I translate some parts as the “Scroll Back”, “Main Menu” etc..

3) Is it possible to make the little side bar that calls the main menu larger?

4) Is it possible to make external links appear as tiles?

5) Is it possible to add text to a “Child Pages” Template page?

Thank you.
kluska

Hi, are you familiar with basics of css/php?

Default-user

With the basics yes, I have some background in programming and have studied the basic php/html/css syntax

kluska

1. Chapter 5th of style.css is about fonts, you can change it there.

2. There is languages dir inside theme dir. You can add normal language files (po – you can use POedit) with translation of all texts of theme – theme is translate ready.

3. You can modify #navbar css inside style.css (left prop is number setting size of edge)

4. Create pages with tiles as you would always do and check ‘custom url’ option on their option. You can also check option to open link in new window.

5. Not for now, I’ll add this soon.

Hello kluska, thank you for all the answers, just a couple of things:

1- Couldn’t find a way of getting rid of the bold special characters (I like the weblysleek choice so I ended up keeping it), did you thought of a solution?

2- Translated everything of the .po, but there are some text pieces which remain untraslated (e.g: “previous posts” on the most recent blog post, and the “x hours ago”)

3 – There’s a way of completely isolating blog and gallery categories? So when I use the dropdown menu on the gallery page the blog categories don’t show up?

Default-user

Actually…if it would be possible to hide the dropdown menu on the gallery page…that would work too, thank you

kluska

1. Partial solution may be to change font like font-family: Segoe UI, weblysleek – so if user has oryginal windows 8 font (all win7/8 does) it will use it, and if not it will use next font on list. 2. Ok I’ve found some missing fields for translation. I will add’em. 3. At the moment there is not, but its good point!

Hello Kluska, puting “utf-8” directly on the header.php meta tag solved the bold characters problem

kluska

Oh crap! Thanks a lot!

Hello, im trying to make an infinite scroll page for this theme, can you point me to the function that adjusts the size and order of tiles on the page please?

currently my jquery is adding new tiles, but the tiles are not visible in the singleColumn div. there must be a function to re initialize the div containing the tiles but i cant find it. is it mmdraw();?

kluska

yes, mmdraw() is main function. And inside it – sorting tiles are all .isotope functions there.

Hello,

When I used [tabs] shortcode, it seems to duplicate 3 times. For instance, tabs Test A /tab Test B /tab Test C /tab it will result as Approved Rejected KIV Approved Rejected KIV Approved Rejected KIV at the tabs header.

Then, I’ve found that in your template demo, it is the same, or is it coincidence that you dup 3x for demo purpose?

Please help.

kluska

Yep, I’ve noticed it too now. I will inspect this with update.

Default-user

Thank you, Kluska. Appreciate it a lot. Please let me know, if the update s out :)

kluska

It’s updated now

Default-user

Thank you so much. I will try it out :)

is it possible for me to display the logo on every page and where in the code can this be changed

Default-user

anyone out there (Kluska?)

kluska

Hi. Sorry for delay – logo is displayed only on homepage as on metro ui, you can however modify header.php file – on line 96 add some condition like && 1 == 1 so logo will be displayed always.

Default-user

thanks for responding kluska – i tried the condition 1==1 but just created a server load error, would you be able to tell me exactly what to type.. sorry im not a developer

kluska

Ok, so on line 96 of this file just paste ”<?php if(mm_option_on(‘isCustomLogo’) && is_home() || 1 == 1){“

Default-user

Thank you Kluska – worked like charm

kluska

Glad to hear that!

Hey there,

I’m thinking of buying this theme for my customer. My big question is:

The really nice start page of this theme.. is it only possible to list Pages there or am i able to list all my blog articles in this kind of style on the start page? (with a slider, icons, color boxes and so on…)

I hope for your answer :) Thanks :)

kluska

Of course you can list all pages like this. Posts are displayed as tiles with featured images, but they dont have custom icons.

Default-user

IS there a possibility to enable all posting options from pages (like tile, icon and so on) for blog articles? That would be great and would look much better on the startpage…

  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

So my boss bought this theme now for our customer. And i have now two questions to you:

1) I’m logged in in Firefox as an admin in wordpress and re-arranged the tiles on the homepage and saved the tiles. Now if i open the page in Chrome or Safari nothing changed to the tiles (i cleaned cache already). Is there still an issue on this theme? or is it my fault?

2) I published a test post to see how it works. Then i tried to watch this post on my ipad retina. Now i have the problems: There is too much content (seems to) and the page has vertical scroll too because 2 columns are getting very long. The other problem is that if i try to scroll sideways to the right, the site always jumps back to the left immediately.

Please can you help me?

If it is a problem that there is not a “purchased” mark at my nickname, i can send you the item purchase code with private message. Told you – my boss purchased the theme…

Thanks a lot :)

kluska

1. Firefox page area is a little shorter than on chrome (chrome has smaller top bar). Are you sure that there is same ammount of rows of tiles on Firefox as on Chrome?

2. I’m not exacly sure what is your problem. Can you describe it more precisely. Layout of content depend on screen size only, not on ammount of content.

Default-user

You were right – firefox and chrome have different amount of rows and there was a little cache problem. That has been fixed now.

To the second – i have a problem on ipad – especially more than 1 problem:

If i open my site in safari on ipad and scroll to the right, then stop and wait for 1-2 seconds, the screen jumps back to the beginning on the left (looks like the page is being refreshed). And sometimes (not every time) there is a problem with overflow. Then it creates a column with doubled height – don’t know why :(

The problem with the overflow is not so important (perhaps content must be optimized to fit correctly) But please test the jumping on ipad.. that’s quite annoying :(

Default-user

Perhaps one issue could be that the background image loads new if you scroll on ipad because on a tablet the parallax effect is not possible for a background image. Can you please tell me where i can turn this off?

kluska

I was trying to reproduce your issue and I wasnt able too. I will go to some tablet store and check it on various types of iPad

If you want to disable parallax – go to _/js/mm-draw.js and on line 158 remove or comment $(window).parallaxBg(isMobile);

Hello, I posted two comments here and sent two emails, but I still haven’t received any help from you in a matter of portfolio. I read almost all comments here looking for tips and spend hours on trying to figure how it works and I’ve got nothing, but annoyance. Could you finally make some step-by-step guide how to add items to portfolio? I love your theme and I really don’t want to change for another, but portfolio is sth I really need on my website and if I don’t manage to make on your theme I ‘m afraid I’ll have to do this on an another one.

greetings

kluska

1. Create new page > select portfolio template.

2. Create new post > select type -> portfolio item. Set some content, some featured images showing this item

3. (Optional) Create new category for posts > then go to categories and check what is “Slug name” of your category should be just lower-case and spaces replaced with ”-” like “Small Dogs” > “small-dogs”.

4. (Optional) Add category to your portfolio item

5. (Optional) As Content of Portfolio Page write comma separated slug names of categories you want to be displayed on this portfolio page. So content of page could be small-dogs,small-cats

6. Save your page/posts – dont forget to check ‘Has tile’ option of portfolio so it would be accessable via tiles.

That should be it.

Sorry for delay.

Default-user

worked:) thanks a lot:)

btw are you Polish?

kluska

Indeed I’m ;)

Hello, First I want 2 thank you 4 your great job. My Question is, if it is possible 2 shut down the gradient effect on the post-pics or page-pics. If yes, how and is it possible 2 shut it down only for some posts and not for all posts? THX

kluska

in _/php/display-tiles.php on line replace delete “class=’black-to-transparent’”

Default-user

Thanks for you help, instead of deleting I Changed it to “White-to-xxx” My next question is: Which lines I have 2 change to deactivate the “Author” & Releas date on all posts? Thx for your great job and Support again ;)

kluska

I’m glad to hear that! If you’ve made your opinion about the theme it would be great if you rate it ;)

About your question: You mean you want to hide author and date info? But you want to hide it on tiles or inside post page too?

Default-user

I’ll rate it, of course ;) About my qustion: Yes I want to hide them overall, but please tell me how to make it differential, in case maybe to show it once, THX

Default-user

PLZ Help about last question, THX

kluska

Go to _/blogmeta.php and remove lines 3,4,5. It would remove this info, if you want to show it once, you would need to set cookies and its a little more advanced. But also I dont see the reason to show meta info only once.

Default-user

OK, THX alot. I’ll try it soon

Default-user
FMalekS Purchased

thank you so far for your help. Removing those line helps, but not overall. The Author and the time INSIDE the posts are removed but not (e.g.) on the Pic-link, on which u r clicking to go inside the post: On the main side (http://test.kfo-nuernberg.com) the author and published date r not gone but inside the post they r gone. How can I remove them over all?

kluska

Inside _/php/display-tiles.php remove lines 215 and 230 it will remove meta data from tiles of posts. (btw your link is protected by password)

Hei kluska, grat job! Quick question: are you aware that the ShareBar displays an error and a tweeter button? On that bar would be cool to have customized buttons for all the social platforms out there.

cosminn777

Also, a button to close that menu would be nice, just like the button for the Main Menu (left vertical menu).

kluska

I will add some social options for this and close button. Thanks.

Wow! This is such an amazing theme! I really like what you’ve done. I was wondering if there is an HTML5 version available as well? Any plans to make one?

kluska

What you mean by HTML5 version? Theme does have html5 elements indeed, but I dont understand what difference you would see in ‘html5 version’.

Cheers.

Default-user

Sorry – I meant to say, Non-wordpress version

kluska

Mhm, so – there is no no-wp version of the theme at the moment

Great theme. Ready to buy, but wanted to know if you offer a customization service?

kluska

What exacly you mean by that?

Default-user

I like your theme, but want to develop/change it a bit to meet my specific design needs. Are you available to help customize it?

kluska

Please mail me about details

Is there an option for custom javascript or do we need to edit theme files in order to add analytics js code (for exaple)?

kluska

There is no ‘custom’ js option. I thought it would not be safe. However there is GA js code prepared inside footer.php file

cosminn777

Well, an invisible widget spot could help for this.

I am proposing some changes for blog page:http://themeforest.net/item/modern-metro-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/4203726

1. It would be nice to show the post category, not only the title, image, who made the post and when. Right now, when you look at the posts from that page, you cannot tell in what category they are without actually selecting a category from the category drop down box.

2. it would be nice to have a nicer way of selecting the categories (instead of a drop down box).

3. It would be nice to have more ways of displaying the blog posts (like a grid for example or post excerpt over post image instead of excerpt below image). Right now, they are alligned one after another.

4. If I click on “Blog” when I am on a post, I will moved to the main page instead of the blog page (ex: http://themeforest.net/item/modern-metro-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/4203726). Same for portfolio posts. If I click of the ”<-” icon, I will be actually taken back.

I propose that when you click on the text to be taken back to the Blog posts or Portfolio, just like clicking on ”<=”, BUT, a home icon should be before the ”<=” icon, and that icon should be for the main page.

Please consider my propositions and if possible, give us an ETA for the next, improved theme version.

kluska

2. What exacly would you like to? 4. You need to select blog page in options panel

cosminn777

I’ll send you a link on private.

Hello Kluska….!

Pretty amazing…!!!! yor work, really love it.

One question, my understanding is that, the THEME is constructed over HTML5 and CSS3, so, can i apply this theme to other kind of application as well for a Word press web site?

I am a developer, and i am looking for a Metro style GUI over HTML and CSS, so my question is, can i used this theme to my ASP.NET MVC 4 application (the front end uses HTML and CSS)?

Regards from mexico :) Have a nice day.

kluska

If you would cut out elements of theme into plain html5 it would work, but generally this is wordpress version of theme and to work with wordpress it was thought.

I cannot install this theme. I have wordpress 3.6.1, then I tried with 3.5.2, but doesn’t work. Now I saw the requirements, and I’ll try to install it on 3.5

Default-user

Hello! Please do not consider my message above. Finally, I was lucky with a smart engineer from my hosting provider. This theme is wonderful, it’s also working on wordpress 3.6.1 (last version), and easy to use, as far I saw in the presentation. All the best to kluska.

kluska

I’m glad to hear that.

Cheers, and if you’ll make your opinion about theme, please dont forget to rate. Thanks.

Default-user

My first impression is that it is the coolest theme that I have seen. This is the reason why I bought it. I’ll come back with other feedback asap. All my best

Hey Kuska,

first thank you for this theme, really awesome! i have one question though:

Quote: “1) How can I change the font in the whole site, there’s a fix for the bold special characters?” by mseba.

His solution: “Hello Kluska, puting “utf-8” directly on the header.php meta tag solved the bold characters problem”

Could you please shed some light on where exactly i need to put the “utf-8” ? Tried it but no luck yet…

kluska

Try adding <meta charset=”utf-8”> to bottom of <head> section inside header.php

Mh, still doesnt worked. Anyway i just changed font to segoe ui and its fine!

I have found something regarding your tab shortcut, please see the attached picture [link]

http://s1.directupload.net/file/d/3425/qt25pix2_jpg.htm

It is somehow messed up in chrome (Also the animation is screwed).

kluska

Segoe UI is best choice but I dont have any right to supply it with theme comercially thats why I didnt use it.

I’ve seen tabs issue before, I will check it.
