Gallery template? I looked at the Portfolio—but that doesn’t allow for Photo descriptions (with text and links!)... I would buy this if it could also do galleries…

Beautiful form factor. Great job. Would buy but there’s no place to put portfolio items which require description and links.

kluska

I will develop new porfolio option soon.

This will be awesome for a portfolio. Any ETA?

kluska

Thanks. As I’ve said before, new portfolio module will be added soon too.

Very nicely done!

The metro style has really been growing on me as of late and have been looking at examples to get inspiration from for an upcoming project of mine. This template really hits it on the money. Great job! :)

I also really like the subtle effect of the circles in the background. Nice touch.

kluska

Im glad to hear that, thanks Zoic ;)

Amazing! Rated 5 stars!

Having some troubles with customisation, though, maybe you can help:

since I`m using site in my native language (which is not english letters-friendly), could there be some easily way to change modernmetro font? If not for all the theme, maybe just in significant parts?

other thing – I`m not using Site`s Tagline, field is left blank. Therefore, browsers show my site`s Title and then symbol ” – ”. Is there any chance to get rid of that line?

Thanks!

kluska

About changing font: in style.css in ‘chapter’ 5. Fonts (line 1380) there are absolutly everything about theme fonts, so you can very easly change all the fonts. If you’re not familiar with css mail me and I will help you.

About empty title line – thats good point – I will add it to TODO for next update theme to move content up when there is no title.

But, Im not 100% sure what you mean by ”-” – some unwanted sign inside title-bar?

yup, somehow managed to miss it, founded it now, my mistake.

http://oi45.tinypic.com/10ia1l1.jpg – it is a minor thing, but I`m totally clueless about it
kluska

Oh, that little thing :) go to file _/php/theme-functions.php then find function mm_title and I think code is pretty clear there. If you’ll have problems, mail me.

On line 468 replace

$title .= ’ – ’;

with:

$title .= ’ ’;

1 – It is very difficult to launch an HTML version rather than Wordpress? Want to do this? The theme is perfect.

2 – You should create an admin theme for this layout. I would be very good.

kluska

It would be tricky to make HTML of this, I’m thinking about it but its not my direct plan atm to do it.

I will think about it to create admin panel theme based on this. Thanks for idea ;)

Kind regards

:inlove: OMG :inlove:

Is there a way the theme can be set up as an WEB-app ? I would like to use this theme as our Internal BusinessIntelligence-website, all viewers will access the website with their iPad :stress: They do not use a PC anymore.

Greetzzz, Jochen

kluska

If you will make it as normal website, its ofc possible. But I’m not sure if it can be done to make a full app with its icon on tablets main menu, to be seen without browser running etc.

So as a website with some shortcut – yep. As a full app – I dont think it can be done with wordpress.

Default-user

damn, you’re quick in answering !!! :-)

;) Thanks

The left menu bar intended to simulate the gesture control on Windows 8 in which swiping from the left edge into the screen will call out the menu. However, I haven’t tested yet, will it be conflicted with the original gesture control on Windows 8 touch screen? and I have tested on Ipad, this gesture will not work on Ipad and it is a little bit difficult for Ipad to call out the menu. Will you come out any solutions?

kluska

About calling menu on touch devices – as navbar visible part is very narrow and its hard to ‘hover’ it with finger, there is also invisible part next to menu much wider, ignored by mouse, but when you tap it on mobile it will show menu. http://www.dropmocks.com/mBq06l

I will test it with the next opportunity how it works with win8 native gestures.

ps. If its still hard to call menu by touch, I will make this ‘tapper’ wider, please let me know. Thanks.

Default-user

Actually the user experience of navbar on ipad/iphone is not so good because sometimes the menu cannot be tapped back.

kluska

Hmm… thats good point. I will add back arrow button in next update to navbar that will hide it.

kluska

Added. Will be uploaded with next update, if you want, mail me for new file.

Default-user

Great,so quickly update. I just found the back arrow button on your demo site, and it is very useful on ipad. Thanks, I’d better wait for next update with better portfolio template.

This is great theme, but … on mobile (iPhone 5, 4s, Android – Samsung Galaxy II) is very slow …

kluska

It often caused by animating background image. I’ve tried to detect mobile devices and disable animating bg and it was running much faster. Is background image ‘perspective’ animating on those devices?

Great theme but horizontal scrolling is so bad for user experience. Sorry to say that – but we should stop copying bad features that MS had tried to implement – and horizontal scrolling is for sure the worst.

This type of scrolling was declared one of the TOP 10 worst mistakes of the 2002 in webdesign industry (yeah, 2002) and microsoft came back to it after 10 years.

Anyway – I have to admit the style of this theme is great, good contrast, typography and hierarchy. Using a vertical scroll can help a lot!

Good luck!

kluska

I appreciate your opinion ;)

Hey, really amazing theme, but the menu is a little bit buggy (Safari 6.0.2). every time when i close the menu, it open it again when i scroll the Site.

greetings

kluska

The menu appears when you scroll up when page is scrolled max to left.

Or it happens every time you scroll mouse? If yes, I will inspect and fix it.

Default-user

now its perfet. Thanks ;)

I think the parallax effect affected the website performance on Ipad, so I always see some faultage between the upper and middle area on the main page if I swipe fast. The verticle scroll effect in a page is also not good, not so smooth and sometime the table will overlapped with text.
I saw some designer figured out a way to achieve parallax effect on ipad, you can see his demo on this site, http://www.aerian.com/portfolio/one-potato/one-potato-html5-website and this guy seems to give out the code freely, I think it may help you to optimize your site https://css-tricks.com/forums/discussion/15164/parallax-scrolling-that-actually-works-on-ipad/p1
I know that designing website is a hard job, if my suggestions annoyed you, just ignore me, haha
kluska

Thanks, I will take a look about it.

Very nice approach! Only the Main menu won’t work on my iPhone 5 – opening it, only the first 3 (Safari) or 4 (Chrome) icons are visible under the search bar. Scroll down makes all icons disappear. Any solution?

kluska

Have you similar issue when scrolling content on scrolling page? http://impactweb.pl/themeforest/modernmetro-dark/?page_id=98

Default-user

no, scrolling the content works fine!

Sorry I bother you again. I found a problem on Ipad. When I call out the navbar by tapping the left edge, it will always open one of the pages in the menu. You can try it in your Ipad.

kluska

I’ll check it and let you know.

kluska

I’ve tried some js fixes now. Please let me know if it helps

Sir, this theme is beautiful. Yes , there are a lot of little things mentioned above that I know your working on, but that left nav-bar issue on ios devices cost you another sale. Too many users are mobile, and even though other manufacturers are catching up with apple, their devices own the market right now. This would for sure boost your sales tremendously. We will check in in the future to see if things are better.

kluska

I’ve tried some js fixes now. Can you please check it now? (If your IPad is caching page files, please hard refresh page to be sure its using only actual files of page).

Thanks a lot!
