Hi, nice theme, i am interested in buying this, so i have got a question: I prefer VERTICAL SCROLLING, would it be possible to let the webbuilder choose which one would be applied?

Kind regards Charles

kluska

You mean you would like it always to use ‘mobile-vertical’ mode, even on hd screen?

If yes, it can be done by changing few line of code inside javascript. I didnt thought anyone will need this. I will think about adding this option to theme options admin panel.

So for now its possible by editing files. If you will need, I will mail you needed file. Maybe with update I will add such options.

But before buying eventually let me test it so I will be sure I can do so for now ;)

Thanx for your answer, greatly appreciate your effort, indeed it would be nice to have it as an option in the admin panel!

Every time I click on an article to read it off the main page I get an internal service error. This is no good. What could I be doing wrong?

kluska

Can you mail me with some screenshot and If you’re able to, copy of generated website (browser options > save as) I will check it asap.

What server you use?

Default-user

Also any way to add advertising and SEO to this?

kluska

Accidentally adding adds to it becomes pretty tricky. Where would you like to set it? What kind of add?

[edit]

I’ve checked how MS do it: http://hothardware.com/newsimages/Item23251/Windows_8_Ad_01.jpg

Here is example. I will think about adding this feature. For now it can be done just by adding big-higg tile with custom url.

There is no seo options feature atm.

Default-user

I have been using adsense just curious if its possible to have something to click for visitors

kluska

I will consider adding some Google etc integration

The Problem with the Navigation Bar on the iPad is that you have to click between the Navigation Drawer symbol and the content – there in the middle it works without opening a menu item directly

kluska

You mean when you tap menu bar it dont opens, but when you tap next to it, it opens?

Default-user

I am referring to the comment ” futureguitar Purchased 6 hours ago Flag

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.”

If you tap really the left edge it opens the menu item (hidden) below your finger and not the menu bar => you have to tap in the black space between the edge & th content, so it shows the menu bar

Thanks to nmuenzner for noticing my question. I finally find the right place to tap. In Kluska’s latest update, the problem I mention before was solved. However, the user experience of calling out the nacbar on ipad is still not good. You need to tap exactly on the area not to close the left edge and also not to close to right content to call out the navbar. But people always get attracted by that three dots at left edge and will try to tap that three dots which always fails to call out the navbar.

kluska

I’ve made some update about it on demo now. Check it, it should be ok now.

Default-user

Great, the problem is solved now!! Thanks. However, the navbar can only be tapped back by the back button, is there any possibility that the navbar can also get back by tapping any where not in the navbar or scroll the content to left(like desktop version) ?

kluska

I will implement those propably in next update. Thanks for info.

Default-user

Thanks for you prompt reply. look forward to your update. By the way, the new portfolio page is very nice

kluska

Also note that last navbar change was made after I’ve sent update files. If you dant want to wait for next update, mail me and I will send it.

Addition to the parallax effect performance on the ipad, the live tile image rotation on the big post tile on iapd always flashes with red background. By the way, I found that the content in welcome page cannot split into multiple columns by using short code, that means in the main page only tiles and one column of welcome content can exist .

kluska

About tiles image rotator I will inspect it.

About welcome message – it’s thought to be once column only (with slider if needed).

I don’t know whether this is a common problem. In your demo page, I click into “contact” tile, sometimes there will be no content under this page, if I refresh several times, the content will sometimes appear and sometimes disappear(IE, Safari, Chrome). Actually this phenomena also exist in my test page. I also found that in Safari web browser the vertical scroll is completely disabled.

kluska

I’ll inspect this.

I got my issue with the server worked out, thank you all your help with that :) I was wondering how do I make my site look like screenshot 7

kluska

No problem ;)

Use gallery page template and add some gallery type posts (details are inside documentation) ;)

Im curious if there is any way to add google code to this theme

kluska

What google code exacly? Check footer.php for “Asynchronous Google Analytics”

In your demo “ShortCode” page, there are several columns and each column has vertical scroll bar. Is it possible that if I scroll to the bottom of the first column (or to the top of the second/third/last column), it will automatically change to horizontal scroll? It will bring up fluent scrolling experience for users since they need not to move their cursors. Other wise I just felt stuck when I scroll to the bottom/top in the columns, and need to move my cursor to a non-vertical scroll area to horizontally scroll to other columns, and then move my cursor to that column to vertically scroll.

kluska

I will add it to todo, thanks for info.

Hi kluska,

Just bought your Modern Metro theme, and I am already a big fan. I am struggling with a few options, that are present in your demo. I also read that an XML with your content will be available soon. Is it possible to get the XML by e-mail? I really want to be up and running as soon as possible! Tnx in advance!

kluska

Thanks ;) XML should be now inside official package as update is accepted.

Hi kluska, I hope this is my last question ;). I need to translate the standard input for the contact form and the submit button. Only I can’t seem to find the files te edit. Can you help me out? BTW, the XML is a great help!

kluska

Thanks. You have tree ways to do it-

1. Edit language files for your language (Theme is translate ready – use Poedit to change english labels).

2. Use shortcode this way:

[contact_form label_name="your name" label_email="your emaill adress" label_message="your message" label_submit="Submit"]

replacing labels as you wish

3. Go to _/php/shortcodes.php, find contact_form_func function and edit labels text inline inside php.

Massive product mate! Will buy this soon…. Big UP! It would be great to integrate the social media buttons in the footer or header for the future update.

kluska

Did you check ‘share’ button and share bar with fb, g+, twitter integration?

Sorry it’s me again. In iPhone vertical screen, the space between left edge bar and the right content is a little bit large, which causes 2X2 or 2×1 tile cannot display completely on the screen. So in this screen, you need to horizontally scroll a little bit to see the full content.

kluska

Can you mail me some IPhone screen? Thanks a lot.

Hi Kluska, love the theme.

I was wondering how to add extra icons? I have already uploaded them into the files. Just needed to get them to show up under the icon menu. Thanks!

kluska

Thanks!

Ok, so: each icon is stored like this: includes/metroicons/color(black/white)/size(128/48/32)/icon_name_(color)_(size).png

Each of icons is added in 3 sizes and 2 colors (6 files per icon).

To add icon to list of icons inside admin panel, edit admin/icon-list.php

All rest of job is done automatically – theme chooses right icon sizes and colors for situation etc.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply! I added the icons and edited the php file and it works beautifully.

Oh, I think I just saw the vertical scrolling testing for the demo page. Good job!!

Hi Kluska, I love your theme, and I never comment so much on a theme since I was a member in Themeforest. I just want to make the theme more perfect (it is already so perfect now!!). If you think I’m annoying, just ignore me.

Feature request:
  • Background filter. Can the system add one more options which can add filter to the background photo? So that the background can become darker or whiter or more dots to increase the contrast between content and background?
  • Color scheme switcher. Some people like to read white color font in dark background, whereas some people like to read dark color content in whit background. Can we add a switcher on the menu so people can switch the whole color scheme based on their habit? (Background filter can also be included in the switcher, so whatever background we use, the contrast between content and background will maintain a sharp level.)
kluska

About color scheme switcher there is alredy this option full working, but I’m testing it and its not officially added. You can create new schema inside options > profiles, set all settings and than on website you can select actual schema by passing www.yoursite.com/?mmprofile=ProfileName

check http://impactweb.pl/themeforest/modernmetro-dark/?mmprofile=White (but as I’m saying, for now its not 100% ready and not official feature), to switch back to black version:

http://impactweb.pl/themeforest/modernmetro-dark/?mmprofile=default

About filter. Im not exacly sure what you mean :)

Default-user

Thank you! In this way I can show several color schemes to my clients. For the background filter, sorry I didn’t make my point clear. You can see a trail in a Metro style ipad App named “Track 8” (http://track8.fm/). In this app, when you choose dark theme, the background will become dark, and the font will become white. If you choose light theme, background become white, and font become dark. However, the background photo won’t change when you change theme, they only add white or dark layer between background and content to increase the contrast.

kluska

Ok, I will consider this.

Hi Kluska, I deleted some MM-Groups. Now in the Homepage groups order setting menu, there are two blank tiles. Is it normal?

kluska

Nope, I will fix it. But it is just cosmetical issue.
