very nice theme is it RTL supported?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No, sorry, this is something we need to look into the possibility of. The grid system we use would need modification to work RTL – we’ll investigate this and update the item description accordingly if we update the theme with this.

Hi there, before buying this great theme I would like to know if it has language support? So can I make an English and a Dutch version?

Thank you!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Multi language support isn’t 100% built in, but I’ve seen people doing it before, you might find it easer to set up 2 wordpress installs for multi-language, or try using a multi-language plugin, which may require a little work, but I’ve seen people doing with with MF.

Short version – I can’t say MF 100% supports multi-language, but with a little work, I’ve seen people doing it :)

Super looking theme with a high learning curve at first, but after trial and error with the enclosed demo data, you can even go way beyond what is showcased, as the only limit is your own imagination!

Wonderful personal service and support from Tommus made this theme an absolute pleasure to configure, customise and use!

Thanks a bunch :)

The theme MY FOLIO does not fulfill what it promises!

Hey dude,

how do i loose post tag, post details, post categories on posts?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Open up sidebar.php in your theme files (you can do this through “appearance” => “editor”) and delete everything in there, leaving only this;

<?php dynamic_sidebar('blog-widgets'); ?>

And removing the comments??

tommusrhodus

To remove comments go to “settings” => “discussion” and turn off comments, you can also do this on a post by post basis by clicking ‘screen options’ in the top right of your post screen, make sure ‘comments’ is ticked, then in the new option box, disable comments for that post.

Hi,

I’m interested in purchasing this theme – does it have the possibility to add sliding background images?

Thanks, Jess

Hey! Is it possible to make the page scroll to top everytime I switch a filter from the menu? it’s kinda annoying that it doesn’t… if not, any chance you will put that in the update?

thnx!

Yep, this is on its way for the next update :)

Hi Tommus,

I really love your design of ‘My Folio’. Because I’m using WordPress in ‘the cloud’, I’m not able to install the theme. Are there any plans of making this great theme available for other WP-users then those who have WP on their own servers?

Hope to hear.

Cheers, Koos

tommusrhodus

I’m afraid the theme will only ever be WordPress.org (self-hosted) ready.

Cheers!

Using your theme, like it. I like that when you click an image in the portfolio, the picture opens in large format and you can skip through the different project. Although, when I go to the detail page of a project (with project details on the right), I can’t click the picture for a larger format. I have to go back to the overview page and then click the picture. That seems strange and not user friendly, especially not for a theme focussed on the portfolio that much. Is it possible to have the picture open large when in a project too? Thnx and keep up the good work.

tommusrhodus

Yeah :) I’ll take a look into adding this to the theme.

Cheers!

Hey,

I liked your theme and was considering buying it. Only cause of concern was the blog.

I loved the initial blog page but I wanted something like a full width blog post (where we can insert images one below the other) once the user clicks at one of the posts. Would it be possible it add it somehow?

Another thing I wanted to check is if we can add social media integration to each blog post where users will be able to share the blog post on FB or twitter with a click of a button.

Also, there is another MYFOLIO theme in themeforest which is selling at $15. Wanted to check if its yours and what exactly is the difference between the two

http://themeforest.net/item/my-folio-responsive-photography-retinardy-html5/4588389?WT.ac=search_item&WT.seg_1=search_item&WT.z_author=ppandp

Regards, Varun

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You can send the animated blog section straight through to the full blog single post by changing a single setting in the theme options, that way your readers are presented with your full post, images and comments by one click, rather than two.

2. There’s support for ZillaShare in the theme for sharing your posts, works best with the setting changed as per point 1.

3. The other version of MyFolio is the HTML version, hence the price difference, the HTML version is also included in this WP download as a bonus.

Hey there,

Thanks a lot for the answers. I have one last question before I go ahead and buy the theme.

I am a wedding photographer and want to create multiple albums within portfolio page (in the existing layout). E.g. Tom and Nicole , Jack & Rose etc When these albums are clicked on, it should lead to another page (with the same tiled layout) showing the pics in the album along with a short description and social buttons.

i.e. Instead of the image opening up in a lightbox as soon as a user clicks them, can I link it to another page with more pictures from the same set to showcase (in a similar beautiful tiled layout)

Would it be possible for me to do this in My Folio?

Cheers! Varun

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

OK – you can definitely do this, but you’ll need to use the theme a little differently than standard.

The theme has a page builder, normally you’d use posts as normal WordPress, then drop the ‘posts’ block into the page builder, and all your posts would appear, great.

But what you’ll have to do is use an image block in the page builder with your cover photo (photoshop on the title, the animated title won’t work here) and then link that image to a separate page, with a separate page builder template where you’ve added all your images, titles, blocks etc.

Basically, the above is possible, but you’ll need to think creatively with the tools that the theme gives you.

Cheers!

Hey there,

I’m using in the portfolio section the Block “Portfolio wFilters”, which I have added with der “My Folio Page Builder”. When I load the page, the block is visible, but disappears in less than a second automatically. What went wrong? You find the page here: http://www.malwasneues.com/jongo/portfolio

Regards, Mathuseo

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The issue is that you’ve not set-up your pages correctly for the animation, so your page is automatically looking for items attached to the ‘home’ section in the page builder, and removing everything else.

Perhaps you should try importing the included demo data and watch this video to get yourself set-up;

http://www.screenr.com/3h2H

Once you’ve done that you can modify the demo data to your own, this will get you up and going with the theme really quickly.

Cheers!

Mathuseo

Hey,

thank you. Installed the demo now. But this block on the page “portfolio” still disappears after the page fully loaded: http://www.malwasneues.com/jongo/portfolio

Not sure what I should do now.

Regards!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yeah, looking good. Now take a read through the documentation and watch my other videos :) You should add all your content to just one template in the page builder, and publish only one page for it. The ‘filter’ navigation will do the rest for you, but again, this is covered in the documentation and videos. If you’ve imported the demo data, then watch the video above to set it up.

Cheers!

Mathuseo

Ok, thank you. I think the filter-option is a nice function. But what’s about SEO? Will the google crawler get it with the acitvated filter functionality, that all my content in one template and published in only one page are in real different pages with different content? If not, I would better go the “classic” way, without filters and with “normal” URLs and different pages for different content.

Regards!

tommusrhodus

Oh no problem, if you want to use non animated pages, then carry on as you are, but change the page template to ‘page-builder-standard-navigation’ and then it won’t filter out your elements anymore. You’ll need to use the ‘standard’ menu location in ‘appearance’ => ‘menus’ as well.

Hi, I have a question about using an ‘image’ block in the MF Page Builder. When I ‘Link This Image’ is there a way to have the URL open into a new tab or window? I am linking to another website and do not want visitors to leave my site. When I add the html code in there it won’t link at all. Thanks

tommusrhodus

I’ll be adding this feature as an update this week.

Cheers

ljmarchetti

Great, thanks!

I have another question- I saw from previous comments on this thread that you recommended the rettyPhoto Zoom plugin to make photos open in a lightbox. I went ahead and downloaded it but unfortunately, it did not work. After doing so, I noticed that my video on the homepage (embed link from vimeo – in a pre-filtered portfolio block) will no longer open into a lightbox but now opens as a full screen. I had this same problem about a month ago and it turned out to be a plugin issue. I deactivated and deleted all of my plugins but it is still not opening into a lightbox. Could it be anything else?

tommusrhodus

Probably just a cache issue after you’d installed then uninstalled the plugin, but feel free to leave a ticket at my support site if you need me to take a quick look;

Hmm. I’d love to be able to embed a music iframe (soundcloud, bandcamp etc) in a portfolio entry, and have it playable from the portfolio filter page, so the user doesn’t need to drill down, in the same sort of behaviour as the contact me, about me boxes etc. not sure if there’s a way to achieve this.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Actually, the video post format, used for both blog posts and portfolio posts will accept any iFrame based service, so definitely Soundcloud, all you’ve got to do is choose the ‘Video’ post format, then grab the iFrame code from your site of choice, grab the URL out of the src=”” attribute and drop it in the video embed code area.

Your music iframe is then accessible in the lightbox by clicking your portfolio item image.

Try this soundcloud URL out to see what I mean;

http://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F63714828&show_artwork=true

that’s great! one more (possibly stupid) question. can we specify a width for the player so that the lightbox doesn’t cover up so much of the page? Thanks so much for your prompt response. it’s much appreciated. Great theme by the way. nice and minimal!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yeah, if you open /js/jquery.fancybox.pack.js in your theme files, take a look at the following at the bottom of the file to modify iFrame width and height;

jQuery(".video-popup").fancybox({
'width' : '70%',
'height' : '80%',

ok. sorry I lied. one more question. in the portfolio pieces if the title is too long, it goes behind the video icon. I’ve tried to change this in the custom css so that the icon will be displayed in the bottom right of the container, then 40px up. but that obviously doesn’t work, and unless every container is the same dimensions, I can’t move it down from the top by say 200px to achieve that. any way around this that you could suggest?

Another quick question! The width of the custom logo seems to be fixed! Is there a way I can change that? Any logo I upload gets resized!

tommusrhodus

Yep, it is fixed, but if you upgrade to v1.8 (go to updates on your WP dashboard) there’s a new option for ‘large logo’ in the custom logo section which will allow your logo to go a little larger.

Hi Love the theme. Ive tried 3 themes the last 3 months and this one is a winner! I had a couple problems that you might be able to help me with. There are only 3 options that show in the “format” section in the portfolio page. They aren’t all showing. And, I there’s a problem with video option. It won’t play or anything. Any help would be great. Here the address if you would like to check the progress. www.hayespeterson.com

Hey there,

1. I’m not sure what you mean here, please clarify :)

2. Your video, don’t use this;

Use the URL in there, like this;

Hey there,

Whenever we are moving from one link to another in the website, for example if I am moving from inside a blog post to services link, the home page gets displayed for like 3 to 5 seconds before the services filter takes over and shows only the posts that I want to see. Is there anything wrong that I may have done in configuring filters or menus?

Is there a possibility that we can add a button to submit blog post comments? Users may not know where to click without a button being displayed.

Posts that have been hidden from home page (especially blog posts) sometimes load on the home page and then disapper. It should ideally not appear there at the first place. How do I fix this?

Featured image on a portfolio post takes a very long time to load. Is there any particular size or resolution that I need to follow to make sure it loads fast?

Cheers!

Default-user

I tried setting ‘Use Preloader’ to ‘Yes’ to solve the first problem but its making the website very slow.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You’ll want to use the preloader to get yourpages to load correctly.

2. If you change the single post link settings in “styling” inside the theme options, then you can make clicking on a blog post take you straight through to the post and comments, this will also help speed up your site load a little.

3. See answer no.1

4. Make sure your images are max 620px width, unless you’re using the 3 columns width portfolio setting, in which case use 940px width.

5. Turn the preloader on, see answer no.2 for blog posts, that will speed up your loading, and then install and use these plugins;

image optimisation; http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/

site cache; http://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-cache/

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for the replies. I will check the plugins you have mentioned. Sorry about the post from other account. I couldn’t delete once I posted it.

Another query coming your way -

How do I remove ‘project details’ from portfolio posts? I am using 3-column post and project details appear at the end which is not looking great

Default-user

Hey there,

Your support has been great so far and I really appreciate that you respond to each and every one of our questions!

Is there a way we can create a portfolio post without a featured image but with a portfolio image that will be seen in the ‘portfolio’ link. I understand that featured image is being taken as the portfolio image or cover image of the post. We are planning to put a lot of pictures in our posts. The cover image loads once all the images inside the post are loaded making our website quite slow. I would want to remove the cover image but still want an option of retaining the portfolio image.

The workaround I see for this problem is to create an image block and link it to portfolio posts but they won’t be filterable anymore and I will lose all the animations which I don’t quite like.

Cheers!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Project details, head in to sidebar-portfolio.php to delete that section.

2. I’m not sure I 100% understand the issue here, but if you’d like to leave a ticket at our support site so that you can give a few example links, or perhaps a screenshot you’d like to attach then I’m sure we can understand the issue a little better;

Hello Tom,

Well first of it all I must congratulate Tom for the amazing theme and for the incredibly fast support. I’m 100% sure, all the problems people encounter it’s because they didn’t read the manuals or they’re not so used with WP. Anyway, best theme I ever bought.

Now to my question. Tom, is there a simple way to edit file codes to manage to change the logo width and height sizes? So I can post it bigger? around 200×40px

Thank you so much.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Make sure you’re running the latest version

2. Go to “appearance” => “customize mf” => “custom logo” and click the “large logo” checkbox :)

Thanks for the kind words!

Tom
