Now I want the actual portfolios to be my events only. my url is djbremz.com. Also for the “view all portfolio” i want it to open up my event portfolios only. Please help?

Where we can help further, there’s a little bit of code involved and these comments aren’t great for that :)

Hi! I’m loving your theme! Thank you for the video tutorials it was a great help!

I do have a question. I am wondering for the home page where you have “We create…” I would like to put my own quote but so it goes across the entire page in one line but it keeps breaking into a small column.

How can I change it to be one line?

Please and Thank you

Hi sorry that didn’t work. Nothing changed even after saving and refreshing several times

Hi sorry a couple more questions, thank you for the replies

1) I am also missing some pages that were said to be included, such as the about page, blogs… I have imported the xml file a couple of times to ensure that everything was downloaded.

2) at the bottom left corner of the footer, I would like to change the copyright. Where do I go for that?

Thanks again!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I tested the above, make sure you cleared your browser cache after pasting and saving the above.

1. The XML should include this, but these files are definitely included :) Just use the page templates list when you make a new page.

2. You can edit that in footer.php if you’d like. I’m going to update the theme with an easily configurable copyright shortly.

Cheers

Hello I love this theme and have built a nice site for my client. When I look at the site from my computers in all browsers it looks fine. But when Other people look at it it is all broken. I was hoping you could help me get this looking right across the board this is my url http://rollinghorse.com/

I can send you a screen shot that my client sent me from there home. And it is numerous people with newer and older machines that are seeing it broken. I appreciate your help :)

I was looking at purchasing this theme … just was wondering how video is incorporated into this theme. For example … the Portfolio (Basic) page … can Videos from youTube or Vimeo be linked to the thumbnails. And would they pop up and play in shadowbox? Thank you … looking forward to your reply.

Hey again … TommusRhodus. We purchased your theme the other day. I had just a few questions.

First I installed wordpress on my server … had to do a manual install in order to get it in the root directory … I think I did everything correctly.

The only problem I had is … I installed the Montreal theme (seemed to go well). But when i tried to install the Demo … it wouldn’t let me install it with “include attached files” checked (it kept timing out). So I installed it with that unchecked. It installed but obviously a lot of things were not installed from the Demo.

I assume this is no problem because I’m going to be creating new pages from scratch I assume.

My question is … I’m trying to understand how the “Portfolios” work.

Basically I’m trying to do the following …

I need to have a static Portfolio page (I would like to use the Portfolio Basic Template look and layout) ...

This page needs to have several Thumbnail images … each one Links to another Portfolio type page layout …

this page will then have several layouts … all of which link to a page with a video and description on it.

I’m just not sure how to get the Portfolio Basic page to have the thumbnails I want and link them to another Portfolio basic page. I also need it so that when we click on that thumbnail it doesn’t first open in a lightbox and then you have to click that to go to the next page).

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for the help … can’t wait to figure this out.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The portfolio basic page, like the other formats, is a collection of your portfolio posts. When you click on an item it sends you through to the portfolio-single post, which has 3 display types, wide, full and basic.

Sadly linking the portfolio basic layout page to another portfolio basic page through the items would not be possible without some pretty large theme modifications.

Though maybe I’ve misunderstood, if you’d like to explain further, perhaps with a few screenshots, feel free to open a ticket;

I purchased this theme and have made a few adjustments, but I’m wondering about adding additional photos to the portfolios. I would like to add (up to 20) photos to the Home page, and would also like to add 20 to the portfolios. I tinkered with the page-home,php file and added what I thought were the correct entries in order to add more images,
$home_gallery6 = get_post_meta( $post->ID, ‘_cmb_home_gallery6’, true ); if ($home_gallery6 !=’‘) { echo ‘{image : ”’ . $home_gallery6 . ’”, thumb : ”’ . $home_gallery6 . ’”},’; } $home_gallery7 = get_post_meta( $post->ID, ‘_cmb_home_gallery7’, true ); if ($home_gallery7 !=’‘) { echo ‘{image : ”’ . $home_gallery7 . ’”, thumb : ”’ . $home_gallery7 . ’”},’; }
I added in text for 8, 9, 10, etc…

but it didn’t work. Can you help me out a bit?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Head to /inc/framework/metaboxes.php – in there you’ll see the code which is generating the image inputs for your homepage, you’ll want to duplicate those also :)

Aww man, thanks a lot. I now have both 20 image slots in the Home slider, as well as in my portfolio-basic. :)

I do have a second question though…where are the controls for the portfolio sliders contained? I’m am trying to adjust the transition (from “sliding left” to “fade”) and include thumbnails in place of the “dashes” in the slider. Is this possible? If so, where should I start my search?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Ok, here’s what you’re interested in;

http://www.woothemes.com/flexslider/

Flexslider is called in /js/main.js like this;

jQuery(window).load(function($){
  jQuery('.flexslider').flexslider({
    animation: "slide" 
  });
});

Using those two bits of info, you should be able to modify to your liking.

Cheers!

question – do the image galleries (the strip one) support a media lightbox? Meaning can I click an image and have it open to video or audio? Please let me know and thank you…

if not, we were thinking of trying to work the plugin “jackbox” into it some how… Any thoughts?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The stripe portfolio doesn’t use a lightbox at the moment, but there’s no reason it couldn’t, the theme would just require custom work is all.

So make sure you’d be comfortable editing my theme files to make this change, or you could buy the theme and contact www.tweaky.com

Cheers! :)

very cool – thank you!

Hello, I’m using the Montreal newsletter sign-up widget, and I was wondering where does the information go (email address)? I cant seem to find the recipients information in the back end of Wordpress.

Thanks!!!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The montreal newsletter widget is very simple, it sends an email to the email address set in “settings” => “general” with the originators email, if you need something a little more advanced you could try this;

Hi..thanks for the great theme..but i have question about twitter account her..i have configure the plugin correctly, it needs 4 separate API keys generated on dev.twitter.com,and changing the setting of social profil in “custommiza montreal” but it’s still your account and your tweets in my site..do i make something wrong here? need more info please..thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Make sure you’ve changed the twitter account name on the homepage settings.

2. The tweet plugin has a cache. so it can take some time for that to refresh, in the twitter plugin settings, enter 3600 into the cache settings, and it should refresh every hour.

Cheers!

Yes..it’s resolved now..thank you!

Hi, thank you for the superb theme. I have 1 question; I would like to have the clients and testimonials (exact as on the about page in the demo) on my homepage instead of the blog section. Is this possible?

Thank you!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m afraid that’s currently not possible without modification to the theme, but I’ll write this in my development list and see if perhaps it’s something that can be done for the future of the theme.

cheers

Hello Tom, and thank you for the great theme. Is it possible to get the changelog for v1.2.9 and 1.3.0 ? It would be awesome for the future to get a list of the modified files as well if possible, this way people who have internally modified code would have an easier time updating their setups. Cheers, Geo

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

This update addresses header.php, each of the contact script files, and every CSS file, though it’s worth mentioning that each tweak is definitely small and it was just the odd little tweak that I wanted to make that was annoying me a little.

For this reason I’d consider 1.3.0 an optional upgrade, definitely not worth the theme if you’re not just doing a straight upgrade :)

Cheers

Hi,

We bought your theme and we are so glad to use it ! Thank’s a lot. However, when we upload a HD photo, we don’t obtain a clear photo on the website, it is blurred. We don’t understand that because we upload only HD creation. Do you have any issues to give us ?

(sorry for my english, I’m french (: )

tommusrhodus

Hey there, please contact me from the account which purchased the theme.

Cheers

Great theme!

How difficult would it be to use a different lightbox than prettyphoto, I prefer Foobox.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Not too difficult if you know you’re way around a WordPress theme, you’ll just need to add in the required classes for your lightbox of choice wherever the old lightbox was called in the theme.

Cheers

One other question, does it play well with NextGen Gallery?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

It works with NextGen gallery, but I’ve not spent any time specifically with the plugin, so could be a little rough around the edges.

Cheers!

Hi,

I’m interested in your template but I have one question tho. Is a light version (white) in it?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The theme works on a 3 colour system, colour a, colour b, and highlight, currently thats set as ‘black’, ‘white’, and ‘green. So you can basically invert the site by flipping the default black and white colours to create a light version :)

Hello, I just bought your template but I would like some informations about the colours and the language. I noticed the 3 colour system but how can I change the colour of the text now? When I change the colour of the website in white, I can’t see the menu which is white… My second question is about the different forms (contact and project planner). I would like to translate the text in french but I don’t know how. Could you tell me how to do it please?

Hi ThommusRhodus,

Thanks for this theme, we love it! :) However, we would like to use the portofolio Grid block but we noticed the layout is disturbing on the top. Indeed the 3 blocks don’t have the same size as others so the title doesn’t appears very well. Do you have any issue ?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best

Hey there,

Make sure you grab the newest update, which addresses that :)

Hi.

I have two quick questions

Firstly is what is the best size for the images (for the home gallery)

The second thing is when viewing on an iphone/ipad the menu changes and the first thing says is ###Table of contents### – do you know how I can change this?

Many thanks

Lisa

Hey there,

Everything mentioned has been resolved in the latest versions, please update your theme now and read the updated documentation for twitter.

Hi, I updated the theme.

It has only resolved the menu problem. I have now lost my twitter section completely. I am sure I can remember how to get that back though.

Updating the theme has altered a lot of the site. Is it possible to revert back? I back-up my site regularly but have since made several changes since my last back-up which was 3 days ago.

If not could you please help me with the following. I am sure I can work out some of these myself, however I never anticipated the update would alter so many things on the site, so any help you could offer to get things back to how they were would be great!

1) How to make the text on the footer normal size – it is really small on the home page and fine on the other pages.

2) -DONE 3) -DONE 4) – DONE 5) – DONE

6) How do I show 6 portfolio items instead of 3

7) How do I get rid of “view project” on the supported artists page when you hoover over and also how do I keep them all in colour.

8- When I click “our recent notes” – it now goes to 404 not found – how can I set this to go to the news page.

9) when I click ” view all notes – it goes to the top of the page.

10) How do I make the text say “News” instead of “our blog” on the news page.

11) How do I get my twitter feed back?

If you can help me with any of these that would be great. I will try and do as many as I can myself in the meantime.

Thanks

Lisa

Great theme!

How do I put in a custom button in the top menu area?

Thanks.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Hmm, the menu area hasn’t really been designed for this. You’d need to manually modify header.php and also add some additional styling to style.css most likely.

Hi there,

I was wondering if this template will work with the Wordpress E-commerce plugin?

Thanks for your help

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m afraid that Montreal isn’t ready for any eCommerce plugins at the moment.

Awesome theme!!

Can you tell me the background sizes you used for the site?

Thanks in advance.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The images we used were 1024×683px – but you can use whatever size you need.
