Hi Kluska,

I’ve a request: is it possible to add in the next update the possibility to see the image in full screen when you click on a thumb in the gallery?

Thank you!

kluska

Isnt it working that way already? http://impactweb.pl/themeforest/modernmetro-dark/?page_id=128 I think I’m not sure what you exacly mean.

Yep but with the image taking all the screen if possible.

kluska

I will think about it, but if you want to change it on your theme, go to style.css, line 179 and edit

.mmlightboxcontainer .lightboxSingle

max-width, max-height propeties. They are now 70% of screen, you can change to 90% or even 100% if you want.

Hi Kluska,
Is there any possibility to make the tiles remember theirs positions based on the screen size? For example, all tiles in a group have three “orders”. When only two rows are allowed, tiles uses “order 2”. When three rows are allowed, tiles in a group uses “order 3”, and 4 row in “order 4”, so that we can make sure all tiles can be arranged neat in every screen size. Otherwise, there are always holes or gaps when changing screen size.

kluska

I will think about how to do it. I think it would be pretty tricky to do, but I will think about it with update.

Hi Kluska, had another question. I like that you can apply different themes when you press the square on the lower left hand corner. I was wondering which line I would have to edit to add in more backgrounds? Also, I added the custom logo image but it does not apply to all the themes.

kluska

Hi. This square is created for demo presentation purposes. Its not official feature. Its linked to: http://impactweb.pl/themeforest/modernmetro/mm-paint.js inside footer.php

If you want, you can download it and add more ‘modes’ to it. And logo was changing becouse inside this demo script logo is ‘hard coded’. You can change its url if you want inside mm-paint.js

Thanks so much for the information Kluska!

Hi Kluska,

I have been working on another website with your theme. And another question raised. Is it possible to put a different background image on desired pages? Maybe it is an option to build it into the theme (as an page attribute), but if it is not yet available, do you have a workaround? Let me know, tnx in advance. MO

kluska

I will add option to change bg image for individual page in next update, thanks for info.

Hi Kluska, since the last two updates were really fast, do you have any idea when the next will be arriving? As you can read in my question below, I’m making a new website for a company and they have multiple stunning backgrounds. If you have the possibility to DM me, I can send you a link. Also to my website, build on your theme! Building a website on your theme was a breeze. Seting it up only took me a few hours! I already rated your theme 5 of 5!

kluska

I was spending some ‘holiday-time’ for now and I was off. I’m working for now on update, I cant say exacly, becouse it will be published when its done, but it should be very soon.

Hi Kluska,

another question, is it possible to have two master blog pages or two master portfoliopages and while composing a message choosing the master page?

kluska

You can choose parent page, and then backbutton on page will lead to its parent page. Is this what you mean?

Default-user
mindowls Purchased

Hi Kluska, this is partially what I mean. But if you write a post it is only possible to select a blogpost, a portfolio post or a gallery post. If you have two blog pages and write a blog post, it will post the message only to one blogpage. For example, I am making a company website where I need to use three bloge pages for: “Services”, “Projects” and “News” where similar but not the same postings will be made. So actually the question is more if it is possible to make a selection for the destination, when you a are composing a post?

Default-user

Or is it possible to make a child page and if you select a tile for the home page, the tile appears on the parent page? This would also do the trick!

kluska

Both this option and custom, multiple galleries will be made with next update.

Awesome theme, I love it! Question, is there a way to change the font or upload my own? Sorry for the stupid question, I’m a newbie at this stuff. Thanks!!

kluska

Check style.css file, chapter 5. fonts. You can easly change totally all font settings of theme there. If you’re not familiar with css, mail me and let me know what you need

Glad to hear you like it.

Hi Kluska, 1, How to remove the shadow covered on the tiles (rotates with photos)?. 2, Will there be more options for blog arrangement on the home page? 3, Will you add any slide show short code for the theme so that we can put a slide show on the homepage? or can you recommend some plugins to do this? I have tried several plugins, they do not work.

kluska

Hi.

1. Find .black-to-transparent inside style.css (for now line 154) and remove its background property.

2. You mean settings of positions of last posts tiles?

3. I’m not sure what you mean ‘slide show’. Some full screen custom slides? Images gallerry? Or something else?

Default-user

Thanks for your help. For the question 2, Yes, but not only the positions of last posts tiles, but also their tiles size, for example, a 4X3 tile with three 2×1 tiles at side. For the question 3, just a normal slider like the plugin “Royal Slider”. It’s size may also be like a 4×3 tile.

kluska

About post tiles. For now they’re auto positioned and their size is auto adjusted too. I will consider adding some customization to them.

For now there is no custom clider, excluding metro slider that is natively build in. You can use it as shortcode with setting custom images for it.

I havent tested any external slider plugins with this theme for now.

Hi again,

the best would be an auto grid gallery. Do you know if this plugin works with your templae design? http://codecanyon.net/item/auto-grid-responsive-gallery-wordpress/full_screen_preview/3959433?

kluska

I havent tested it, but as I’ve wrote, native multiple galleries will be added.

rogerteddy

sounds good, so no need to buy new plugs :-) Thank you for fast reply.

Hello Kluska,

I am interested in purchasing your layout and I have two questions.

First, do you have the site installed on another server or clients that use this model? I`ve tried to see it on mobile devices accessed through my ipad, ipod and android but it didn’t`t rendered.

My second doubt is about the time that layout took to load. I`ve tried on multiple devices in different connections, but the problem persists. I`ve tested my connetions and it`s good, how can the loading time be fixed?

kluska

You can mail me and I will send you some examples of another sites based on this.

Theme is based on many js scripts and plugins. Many features like columnized text aren’t cross-browser working natively and they need to be implemented by js. Same with tiles sorting, charts drawing etc. All of this need to load.

You can reduce this when you’re sure you wont be using some of theme features. For examples Charts draving module takes up to 30% of loading javascripts and also needs some of device performance. When all tiles will be orederd as you need to, you can also disable scripts. For now it will need to be done dircetly, but while writing it I thought that I will make options for that.

And about mobile devices, I’m not sure, theme has been tested on mobile devices, please mail me with some screen to let me inspect this.

Could you give an example line of embedding a simple youtube video into a side. Ireally have some problems understanding the shortcode pdf and I haven´t found any example in your content. Should be easy I guess, but I alsways get a vimeo video…weird.

best

rog!

kluska

You mean Video inside single tile? If yes – as I know, Youtube has blocked embed videos smaller than 200px high and as single tile is 150px high for example I can do nothing about it.

If its normal, page content, let me know to inspect this. And if you can, paste me some shortcode you’ve tried.

[video url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r92vAPZiACY"]
Its working. You can also try normal [embed] thats native wordpress function for this. But this should work.
rogerteddy

No its normal page content. Could be good if you could give a demo of embedding an iframe and youtube video into a page.

I have problems here: http://sparwasser.com/team7/ & here: http://sparwasser.com/porsche/

best

rog!

kluska

As I can see, your video has too wide width set. Can you mail me with code of this page from edition panel. I will check it and explain you whats wrong.

rogerteddy

no I don´t have your email. I think it works now. http://sparwasser.com/porsche/ But how can I make the video bigger, as I tried to use “width” my video was gone and another video was showed up – strange.

Could you tell me how its possible to setup an iframe like http://sparwasser.com/team7/ but without destroying the page.

I use that code: [column_width width=”1050”]<iframe src=”http://sparwasser.com/joel/team_new/demo_cubus_sec.htm” height=”750” width=”1000” allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0”></iframe>[breakcolumn]

kluska

About making some bigger videos – you need to expand width of entire column. To do: paste

[column_width width="700px"]

shortcode somewhere next to your video.

About iframe. Its higher than single column can be. It would be good to adjust it with javascript if you want it to be as big as possible. If you neede help with that mail with me (my mail is on my profile-page contact form here on themeforest)

Hi there,

Nice theme, good job! I am working on a site with this theme. I didn’t dig too much in it yet but already found two things under “Theme Settings” page which need to fix in my opinion.
  1. Under Settings > Blog/Gallerry = “Gallerry” spells wrong!
  2. When I click on “Save changes” in any page, it saves but it goes back to first page every time.
I will post more if I find something else..

Have a great sale! ;)

kluska

I’ve fixed 1-st issue already, and I will try to add 2-nd option soon.

As your theme doesn t support widgets, is it possible to bring up kind of feature image or video onto the front/homepage? Kind of the article posting feature, but different, more like a widget controller.

Best r

kluska

You can paste videos inside homepage welcome message. This is special column where you can paste anything you need, set its column width and use any shortcode.

Is it ok for what you need?

rogerteddy

yes sounds very good. thx

Hi Kluska,

I saw in the changelog on themeforest details page that you released the new update. I dowloaded again, but I couldn’t find the changes concerning the multiple blog pages and posts. Strange thing is I did find the possibility for the custom background image. Did I miss anything?

kluska

I’ve checked current download file. It should be ok. For example in page creation view you have checkbox http://www.dropmocks.com/mBq24i to create custom bg.

You can add blog pages etc. containing only some categories of items by following documentation chapter Gallery/Portfolio/Blog.

Default-user
mindowls Purchased

I did find the custom bg’s. But I did miss the documentation on the portfolio and blog pages! Sorry for that!

TNX for the quick updates! Really great!

One last question, is it possible to turn of the last posts on the home page. In the settings “show number off last posts” I entered “0” but that didn’t work (in posts the checkbox for: show on home was disabled)?

kluska

Yep, I will add option to disable last posts.

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items

Is it the update where you can create more than one gallery?

kluska

Yep, check Gallery/Portfolio/Blog – in documentation. Its pretty simple to do multiple galleries now.

HI Kluska, Is it possible to create a tile using instruction shortcode, with a transparant background color? In the shortlist is an option for color, but that is the color for the pict, right?

And can you give me a quick insight on how to work the href function in the shortcode, I can’t seem to get it to work.

Tnx again!

kluska

Tile shortcode use ‘url’ value, not ‘href’.

Try
[tile bgcolor="transparent" url="http://google.com"]

It should work ok.

Hi Kluska, all works like a charm, only it keeps on placing a icon in white and not in black. I tried a lot of variations. Currently using this: [tile type=”d” size=”normal” bgcolor=”transparent” url=”/?page_id=174” title=”Carwrapping” icon=”misc_handright”]

It doens’t place the tile in the flow of the text, but always on top of the page, is that correct?

kluska

You’re right. It’s fixed now and will be added with next update. If you need files now, mail me for them.

Is it also possible to use pagination in de blog tiles on a blog page? Now the text is broken off at a random point which fits in the tile.

kluska

I wanted it to be auto adjusted to tile size. But I will consider adding ‘read more’ text cutting (I think thats what you mean)

Could you explain the multiple gallery feature a bit further, I don´t get it from your document.

kluska

When you create some gallery items, you need to select some category for them, like with normal posts. Then when you’ll create new Gallery page, write comma-separated category names as page content. For example: works,animals,cars

And if you have categories named like this it will show only them as tiles on this gallery page.

rogerteddy

Its very awkward to use the featured image methode, isn´t there a easier way like just using the create gallery feature of wp?

kluska

For now this is the way to do it.

rogerteddy

I created an aricle – gave it a name and used a featured image as the picture for my gallery. I attached an category to the article. Then I´ve created a page and use the gallery template for it – in the contend section I´ve wrote the name of the category but the featured image was not shown in the page I used with the gallery template. Could you please explain the way to do it a bit more accurate? :-)

Thanks

kluska

What is your category name? Inside admin panel go to posts > categories, find your category and click edit it. You will have category name and slug name. And slug name is always used for technical things and you’ll need to use this name.

If you’ll have any more questions, fell free to ask and please paste your content, category name, slug. ;)

Hello KLuska, I am amazed by your theme and also your quick responses to the questions. Great service. Anyway, before buying, will this theme work with WPML for translating the page in various languages ?? And would it be posible to replace “Kluska” bit at the right top with the “choose language widget” from WPML ?? I want to use this theme on a site with various languages. Thanks !!

kluska

I havent tested it, but all theme slogans are GetText’ed like here on tutorial for WPML http://wpml.org/2009/05/wordpress-theme-localization/

You’ll need to translate labels yourself, as theme is 100% translate ready and all files are prepared to change languege. I havent translated it yet.

If you got any questions, feel free.
