I purchased the WordPress template, was going to submit a help ticket but for the life of me I can not find the required license code- the licence certificate link on my Themeforest downloads is no longer there and it only says i have a “regular license”...so i will ask my question here.

I am making a blog post list page instead of a notes page. I am using a category link to open up the blog page listing all of my posts. My question…when creating a post and setting a featured image the featured image shows up in the actual blog post. i don’t really dig that and really only want the featured image to show in the blog listing page. I am afraid this is hard to explain. here is a link to my site http://www.rdrcr8ive.com/ here is a link to the blog list page http://www.rdrcr8ive.com/category/design-journal/

I am using the featured image on some of my posts now but I would like to have the featured image not appear at the top of each the post. Can you direct me to the PHP file that handles the blog posts, if I can find that I can probs tweak it how I want it. I really hope this question makes since. i am really enjoying this template. I am a newb and am learning allot about how to tweak WP by going back and forth from the HTML template to the WP template. thanks RDR

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Ok, to take the featured image out of blog posts, you’d want to be editing single.php, but because I use post-formats, you should head to /postformats/standard-format.php

The only thing in there is the featured image code so change this;

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

To this;

<?php //NOTHING MUCH GOING ON IN HERE

Cheers!

Thanks again! Totally worked! Like i mentioned I am learning allot about how WP templates work from tweaking with this Montreal template. IDK if it is because this is such a great template or you guys have just nice clean code; whatever it is this template is some of the best money i have spent in my search for WP development knowledge and understanding.

tommusrhodus

Aww thank :) I hope you continue to enjoy learning WP!

Hi there,

Im Looking at purchasing the theme, Just a question about colour changes.. 1) With the tabs and main colour layout of the site, can this all be changed to a preferred colour or is it fixed Black or white?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The colours in the theme are not as customisable as some other themes out there, it basically operates as a two colour theme, black and white, which can be changed to say red and yellow (yuck) but the colour options given use this two colour system, some colours, like the tabs, are set as grey, but can be changed easily with a little CSS.

Cheers!

Salutations again,

When it comes to Featured Image(s), is there a way I can edit how they appear so that the Featured Image for a given page is centered rather than left-aligned?

Even better would be a means of having it automatically rescale to the browser window dimensions, if that is at all possible.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you’re referring to the ‘about’ page header image for instance;

1. Try dropping this in the “Custom CSS” area of your theme options which should improve the image handling for your about page;

.page-template-page-about-php header + div.container {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
}

If that doesn’t create the effect you want, then try this instead;

.page-template-page-about-php header + div.container {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
background-position: center bottom !important;
}

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks, mate! That did the deed for the About page header image.

Now, what would I replace ’.page-template-page-about-php header’ with in order to add a code that affects the Contact header image?

tommusrhodus
.page-template-page-contact-php header + div.container {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
}

or

.page-template-page-contact-php header + div.container {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
background-position: center bottom !important;
}

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks, mate. Prior to posting the follow-up question, I tried both of those as a guess to no effect Such remains to be the case. :/

tommusrhodus

Silly me!

.page-template-page-contact-php #map {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
}

or

.page-template-page-contact-php #map {
background-repeat: no-repeat !important;
background-size: 100% !important;
background-position: center bottom !important;
}

Perfect, mate!

Now, I was reviewing the Portfolio Stripe portfolio option and found that on the iPad, the fluidity of the zoom animation did not transfer over well over to mobile. It was rather choppy. That said, I was wondering if it were at all possible to maintain the black-and-white to color transition whilst removing zoom effect?

Thanks in advance, good sir.

tommusrhodus

Yeah that’s nice and simple, just CTRL+F search for this in ‘styles.php’;

.itemstripe:hover { width: 210px;

& change it to;

.itemstripe:hover { 

(there’s still plenty of styling after it, it’s only the width than needs removing.)

Cheers!

Default-user

Brilliant, mate. Looks fantastic now!

A few small things:

1. How would I go about removing the black bar on the top of the ‘Our Recent Work’ section on the Home page? That, or adding an additional bar to the underside of it so that it doesn’t have appear top-heavy?

2. What file would I need to edit in order to change one of the ‘Social Profile’ hyperlink text? For example, changing the Google+ slot to say Tumblr. I’m assuming that knowing this will also give me an idea of where and how to add another SocNet link.

3. When I make an effort to add more than four “team members”, the format doesn’t hold up. Is there any way to remedy this so that I can get repeating rows of 4?

4. I’ve searched through most of the files that appeared immediately relevant to the Portfolio Strip (Drag) template, but couldn’t find where I could edit the ‘Click and drag portfolio to…’ text that is blinking at the bottom of the portfolio. Could you point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1.

.slideshow { border-bottom: none !important; }

2. You can do this in footer.php, if you want to add another you’ll need to add it into the theme options in /inc/framework/theme-options.php or you could just hard code it into footer.php

3. I’m not sure what version of the theme you’re using, but the team members should display perfectly even with more than for. Ensure the theme is fully updated and no plugins are modifying the CSS. If you’re sure nothing is modifying the theme then leave a ticket at my support site with your URL.

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

4. Yeah, that’s in footer-stripe.php

I hope this helps, I’m afraid I cannot offer any more help with theme customisation. Be sure to leave that ticket if you do need further help with the team output.

Hello Tom, congrats for your amazing work. I’ve purchased Montreal theme and I wonder if is possible to change the bottom navigation into the item basic page (“previous project/next project”) to navigate between a certain category of the portfolio. I have 4 portfolio pages, and now when I click there the navigation is into the full portfolio items, with all categories mixed… and I don’t want this. Can you help me? :stress:

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m actually currently looking into this, currently the forward/back function which is included in WordPress doesn’t support categories with custom post types (portfolios) so I’m going to have to write my own version of this.

Until then, just delete the contents of portfolio-navigation.php in your theme files until I can work something together for an update.

Cheers :)

I purchased the WP Montreal theme and I would like to know if it is possible to implement a webshop/eshop in this theme?

When yes: Which webshop/plugin would work best and stays the site still responsive?

Peter

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Montreal is currently not compatible (out of the box) with any eCommerce solutions.

If we decide to add eCommerce to the theme later down the line I’ll be sure to update the theme description to highlight this.

Hey there again,

Is there any possibility that this will happen in the early future? I really do love this theme and my website looks really great because of this theme. I searched for other E-shop templates (themes) but there is nothing to find what looks like this. I would be very happy if there is possibility that I could have an e-shop in this template! ;)

Thanks, A

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If we do decide to do this (still not decided, it’s up to the HTML designer to provide some additional styling & content) then I cannot offer a timeline on it I’m afraid. I certainly wouldn’t hold your breath for eCommerce support I’m afraid on this one.

All the best

I’m having issues with my search tool. It doesn’t find very basic keywords that are used constantly through out my site. It creates some returns occasionally, but most of the time the queries come up: “no items found.” Please help. site: airphotoslive.com

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

This isn’t to do with the theme, but rather the WordPress search function itself. Try installing a search booster plugin like this one;

http://wordpress.org/plugins/better-search/

There’s loads out there, try some out and see which gives you the best results.

Hi, the v1.2.9 HTML version has the old Twitter code in main.js

// twitter 
jQuery(function($){
        $(".tweet").tweet({
            username: "envato",
            join_text: "auto",
            avatar_size: null,
            count: 1,
            auto_join_text_default: " we said,", 
            auto_join_text_ed: " we",
            auto_join_text_ing: " we were",
            auto_join_text_reply: " we replied to",
            auto_join_text_url: " we were checking out",
            loading_text: "loading tweets..." 
        });
    });

...and sits on “loading tweets…”

Will you be updating this for Twitter v1.1?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’ll be contacting the HTML developer of Montreal to see his opinions on this matter. The HTML version included with the WP version is as an additional extra, the WP version is now integrated with Twitter 1.1 – I will however contact Hasan and see how he is planning on handling this.

Many thanks!

Hi there Tom! first of all compliments for the awesome template. Few problems though, i guess i did something wrong, but the menu displays the pages in vertical order instead that side by side like in the preview page… plus it uses some other fonts than the ones in the sample page. last but not list i cannot manage to change the colour scheme… i just try to tweak them but it seems nothing happens… many thanks for your patience… i’m a newby… best, MAx

hi tommus! the videos don’t work..it says user unknown… please help! pps another issue: how do I set up the order of portfolio items? i’d like to display them in a different order than entry date. And, last but not least, is it possible to display the portfolio category in the stripe portfolio rather than just the produt name? best and thanx for the help!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

How annoying! Screenr does seem to do that. Ok, the individual videos are included at the bottom of your documentation, and here;

http://www.screenr.com/SM2H http://www.screenr.com/mW2H http://www.screenr.com/DW2H

The only way of ordering your portfolio items is to modify the published date, it takes a little while, but it’s the best and most reliable way of doing things :)

To do this you’d need to modify page-portfolio-stripe.php in your theme files, or I can consider this for a future theme update.

Hey if I buy this theme do i still have that filter on the background pictures? It looks like kinda transparant grey stripped lines. Will I still have that when I upload my own pictures?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

That filter is in the theme by default, you can delete it if you’d like with one click in the theme options.

Hi I need to translate my wordpress theme. I explain in detail what I did and ask help to know what is wrong. 1 – into the ‘theme’ is ‘my subject’. Inside there is a folder called ‘languajes’. Inside there is ‘mitema.po’ 2 – opened ‘montreal.po’ with the editor poedit and translated the entire contents + perform a verification and did ok. 3 – save my new file as ‘montreal-es_ES’ and uploaded to the same folder ‘theme’ 4 – put this code in functio.php (in the theme folder). add_action (‘after_setup_theme’, ‘montreal_setup’); montreal_setup function () { load_theme_textdomain (‘montreal’, get_template_directory (). ’/ languages??’); }

Ready … and I see no change. Still exactly the same. What I can be doing wrong? ... Another function.php inside the folder ‘wp-includes’ but every time I insert the code something goes wrong so I could do there. I expect your assistance thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Your translated .po & .mo should be called es_ES.po & es_ES.mo

2. Don’t worry about adding the code to functions.php – I’ve already done that for you now, I’ll update the documentation to reflect this.

3. You need to define your language in wp-config.php – please see this video;

Hello again, can you suggest me an e-commerce plugin working on Montreal ?

Thanks

Andrea

tommusrhodus

Hey there Andrea,

Montreal is not ready for any eCommerce plugins straight out of the box I’m afraid, otherwise I would have put it on the item description :)

Integration with WooCommerce is probably your easiest bet, but there’ll definitely be some development work to do.

I hope this helps

Purchased, extremely pleased and had my total site up and running in fewer than 20 hours (I am by no means an expert but have some sitebuilding and coding background). Rated 5 stars! Bonus for the awesome step-by-step videos that outline some of the editing that would be less intuitive to new user.

One thing can’t find—How to find/change email address so I know where my Project Planner and Contact data going? If it’s in the videos, etc., I definitely missed it.

I have it set but still a no-go. I know it’s not the email because I changed my WordPress p/w to check and that e-notification went to the box where my Contact + Proj Plan should be dropping. Any other place I should make the change or somewhere in the code? P.S. You guys deserve the kudos, Tom!

This is my first time buying a theme from here. I actually picked yours for the parallax feature at first, but I ended up loving the tabs and the portfolio column layout options the most. Thanks for making a design that is compatible with vertical images – almost every other gallery/portfolio theme favors horizontal ones.

Two quick questions for now:

- On the gallery-portfolio-post page, the image gallery transition slides the next picture from right to left, and I was looking to change this to a fade effect. I checked the jQuery FlexSlider in the plugin.js file, and according to its FAQ, animation:”fade” (which is the default state and also already included in the theme) should do this, but something else is overriding that, it seems…?

- Can I override the black-and-white preview images in the portfolio-stripe when viewed on mobile devices? My content is very color-oriented and I would like it to look the same on both regular computers and small screens, too. (Really oddly, I use iCabmobile as my iPad browser instead of the default Safari – and I have it set to emulate normal Firefox and to never load mobile versions for any website. How does the theme even know I’m on an iPad?)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Check out line 69 of the file /js/main.js – you can see the slide animation being called in there.

2. Open styles.php and use CTRL+F to find and delete all instances of this;

-webkit-filter: grayscale();

You should find 4.

Cheers! :)

Okay Im a DJ and I just bought the theme and im trying to figure out how to customize some of the features on this. How to change words like “View Project” & “Portfolio”? I want to be able to change it according to each page.. e.g. Artists, Music, Mixtapes

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

‘View Project’ can be changed in “Appearance” => “Customize Montreal”

To edit some of the words on the homepage go to “Appearance” => “Editor” click on page-home.php in the right and use CTRL+F to find the words you need to change.

With regards to the word portfolio in your URLs, it’s not easy to change it, but we can remove it with this plugin;

Thanks! Another questions. Can I make my blog posts look like a portfolio?

tommusrhodus

If you copy the contents of single-portfolio.php across to replace single.php and then choose your preferred portfolio layout from /postformats/portfolio-basic.php to replace the get_format statement in single-portfolio.php – then this might work (untested.)

I’m afraid i can’t help with customisations much more than this, but the above should get you on your way.

All the best

Is there some type of maintenance plugin we can install that allows us to have a log in landing page. We installed one plug in and it knocked out some of the Montreal formatting. Basically, we want to be able to work on the site and not go public with it until we are done, but we want to have an attractive landing page. We are newbies to WordPress.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m not personally a fan of maintenance mode plugins so I can’t comment on a good one, but try a few out from the plugins menu, just because one didn’t work doesn’t mean another won’t be perfectly fine :)

Maybe post a question in the themeforest forums and see if anyone else can offer a few suggestions for good ones :)
