Hi,

The theme is looking good after a day to get it starting to take shape. I have noticed that with the social Profiles part in the Customise MF their does not seem to be a Behance or Flickr option.

Is this something that you are going to include in the next update maybe as I have both and Behance being a portfolio website it is essential with me work.

Best Regards

Ryan Kerswell

Hey Ryan,

Download, install and add your profiles to the ZillaSocial plugin, this will replace the default theme icons (MyFolio is ZillaSocial ready)

Hi,

Thank you for the quick reply. I have found some other parts that I am unsure of.

Firstly at the bottom of the footer is their a way to change the © (copyright) part of the footer to something else either in the Word Press admin or in the code somewhere.

Secondly how do you get the Drop Me A Line part of the contact form to email an alternative email address as I would like it to send a message to me via email rather than a comment on the admin page.

Thank you very much. Ryan ;)

tommusrhodus

Hey Ryan,

1. You can do this in footer.php – go to “Appearance” => “Editor” and click footer.php on the right hand side, here’s your line;

<p class="small"> © <?php echo date('Y'); ?>, <?php echo bloginfo('title'); ?></p>

You could change it to;

<p class="small">Whatever you want!</p>

2. You can change the email address it sends to in “Settings” => “General” or if you want, you can hard code your email address into the script, open contact.php in your theme files, and change this;

$address = get_bloginfo('admin_email');

to this;

$address = 'your@email.com';

Cheers!

Thank you very much that has all worked lovely. I will get in contact if I run into trouble again. :)

Hi Again,

With the blocks you have one named Portfolio and Portfolio with Filters. What do these do as can not seem to see what it does to my site?

Also with regards back to the footer links to twitter etc… where in the code can I add my own options so say if I wanted to add Behance and I designed a small logo for it, is there a way to add this to the code rather than the plugin that you advised me to use?

Best Regards

Also with regards to the above message I have noticed a problem with the theme. I have created a Portfolio post successfully now and you view the project it looks nice but when you click back on another link it doesn’t display the content on those tabs.

My website is www.ryankerswell.co.uk and it is under the Portfolio tab, then if you click on the Douwe Egberts View Project bit it works but then click on another link it doesn’t show any content within this post section.

Please advise.

Cheers Ryan. :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

‘Portfolio’ – outputs your portfolio with a nice load more items button.

‘Portfolio w/filters’ – outputs your portfolio with the additional category filter list as shown in my demo

‘PreFilter Portf.’ – outputs your portfolio restricted to a single category only.

If you want to add your own in, check footer.php to see the area where I pull in my social profiles, and then check /inc/framework/theme-options.php to see how to set up a new input for your social options.

(Zilla Social plugin is much easier though ;) )

Cheers

tommusrhodus

As for your second point; it’s not a bug :)

If you go to “Appearance” => “Menus” you’ll see there’s 2 locations, ‘filters’ and ‘standard’ in the standard area you should have made a second menu that uses a static link, followed by a filter, in your case it would look like this;

http://ryankerswell.co.uk/#filter=.portfolio

Cheers

Default-user

I have tried what you said about the ‘filters’ and ‘standard’ where I have my options as ‘filters’ and ‘menu’ but not sure what you mean with a second menu being a static link.

Do you put the code you mentioned into the customs link box to add this in? I am not sure and following it very well. :)

Also not sure what you mean by making a second Menu either as wouldn’t this just make another tab on my website?

Cheers. Ryan :)

Default-user

It has worked now thanks you.

But when you click out from this is seems to reload the page and not animate as the rest of the website would.

Is there a way to fix this?

Cheers Ryan :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there Ryan,

Check my light demo, the same happens – when ‘filtering’ between sections you’re not actually changing pages, only running the filter script on the theme in the same page. When you visit a single-portfolio item or single-blog item you are actually changing pages, this is why the theme requires a) the alternate navigation I showed you & b) the page reload.

Cheers

Default-user

Thank you for the reply,

I have noticed something else on my pages that I do not want where at the bottom of the portfolio posts just under the comments it says

You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite>  <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <strike> <strong /></i></em></del>

Here is the link to one of my pages where this problem is occurring on http://ryankerswell.co.uk/portfolio/christina-cowie-family-portrait/

I have also turned off all of my plugins and it still occurs but if this is something that is within the theme is it possible to have this turned off some how?

Cheers Ryan :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there Ryan,

That’s not part of the default theme, does ‘sfw’ mean anything to you? It looks like a spam catcher plugin which has added details to the contact form.

Cheers

Default-user

I found the problem, it was an anti spam plugin that I had and one of the options was to include this code into the comment boxes.

Cheers for the info :)

Hi Again,

Found something that I am unable to find the answer to.

Could I have your help with this little bump in the road that I have found also if it is related to your theme.

On this page http://ryankerswell.co.uk/galleries/gallery-1539/ you can see that the images are displayed in a store format which is right but is there a way to get the part of the theme to spread across the full width rather than the 2/3 that it is currently.

This store is not placed within the Page Builder section rather a plugin that just gets inserted within the theme.

If there is some code that I can change to force this text part of the theme to spread across like the Full Text option would in the page builder would be great.

Cheers Ryan :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there Ryan,

Check single.php – you’ll see a DIV element with a col2-3 class, try changing this to col1-1. This should work, but you might need to take a deeper look into the CSS.

Bear in mind that this will force full-width for all single entries.

I hope this helps. Tom

Hi!

I am looking into buying this theme but I am new to WordPress. Will I be able to add music to this theme?

Thanks,

Daniel

tommusrhodus

Hey there Daniel,

Do you mean, background music? Or audio posts?

Cheers!

Background music sorry.

There’s loads of plugins for WordPress that will do this with any theme, so yep, you should have no trouble with that!

Hi Tommus,

I’m strugling with the filter part of the website, i can filter everything exept the homepage, here i don’t want to show my portfolio.

So the portfolio can only be seen when choosing so (in the menu).

Curent my page is working without the filter system.

Can you give me a hint how to ?

Paul. http://www.paulremmelts.nl
tommusrhodus

Hey Paul,

I’m probably not understanding, but currently there’s no portfolio items on your homepage? Am I missing something?

If you mean you’ve currently removed all the filter settings, but you’d like to use them then make sure of the following;

1. In the page builder, your portfolio block in ‘show this block in which section?’ is set to ‘portfolio’.

2. In each of your portfolio entries, underneath the WP post editor, is a checkbox which reads ‘show this item on homepage?’ ensure that this is not ticked for each of your portfolio entries.

If you need further help feel free to leave a ticket;

Hey Tommus,

Almost there. How do i fix this !

I’m choosing a project from my portfolio and, want to go back to my portfolio or information. Then the link is not correct.(#filter=.portfolio)

Can you give me a hint ?

tommusrhodus

Yep, in “Appearance” => “Menus” there’s 2 locations, ‘filters’ and ‘standard’, use only filters for a filter location i.e #filter=.portfolio

For the ‘standard’ menu use full links i.e http://www.mysite.com/#filter=.portfolio

Hi Tom,

Just a quick question.. I added 3 pictures in a gallery portfolio item: http://www.valentineavoh.com/#filter=.brides

When I click on the featured image to see the gallery in the light box, it only shows the first images and the goes on to the next image in the portfolio, without showing the full gallery. Any idea on what I did wrong?

Thanks a lot!

tommusrhodus

You’ve not done anything wrong, it’s just that the lightbbox doesn’t work in that way :)

If you want to use the gallery post format properly then you’ll need to send your users through to the single-portfolio-post (you can change the settings for this in “Appearance” => “Customize Mf” => “Styling”)

The other option is to add each image as an individual post so that you can properly cycle through them in the lightbox. I hope this makes sense.

Cheers!

Hello!

I’m having a couple of issues, and I hope you can help me. I’m new at this and I’m sure these issues are easily fixed.

When I click on a category, the URL reads /#filter=. I’m pretty sure it should just ready /home or /contact, right? Did I set it up wrong?

Also, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to insert a slidedshow into my homepage with the Page Builder. I’m using the Intro block, and it’s only letting me insert 1 picture.

Thank you!

PS: as everyone here, I think your theme is elegant and beautiful. Thumbs up!

Hi, I’m currently working on adapting your excellent theme to a food blog, with the idea of using the custom ‘portfolio’ posts for recipes: so far, so good, it’s actually working (on MAMP on my Mac, at least)... However, I’d like to change at the very least the slug from ‘portfolio’ to, say, ‘recipes’ (e.g. www.mywebsite.com/recipes/my-recipe/): is there a quick and cheap way of doing this, or would I need to create my own custom post format to avoid breaking something?

Is it possible to set the order (alphabetical, date descending, etc…) in which the portfolio items are displayed? What about displaying the date together with the name and categories?

Thanks Michael

tommusrhodus

Hey Michael,

Glad to hear the theme’s actually working ;)

You can modify the portfolio post types details in /admin/cpt.php if you wish to. Or you could install this plugin to hide /portfolio/

http://wordpress.org/plugins/remove-slug-from-custom-post-type/

The portfolio items are displayed by date, if you want to change this then you’ll need to modify the query to your liking in the portfolio block of your choosing within /inc/page-builder/blocks/

Again, in the portfolio files in the folder above, you can add in the date within the portfolio posts loop to your liking.

Cheers!

Default-user

Wow that was fast, thanks! I’m quite new at this (coding in general and styling web pages in particular) so for now I’m mostly inspecting the pages with Firebug to figure out what does what, but that doesn’t mean I can easily translate your instructions above!

Should I edit /admin/cpt.php and substitute ‘recipes’ every time I read ‘portfolio’ (which I guess would break the code somewhere else), or can I simply add code like 'rewrite' => array('slug' => 'products'), somewhere? If so, could you kindly point out to me where it should go?

As far as adding the date into the portfolio post loop, am I correct in assuming that the post categories are inserted into the subtitle-wrap div via the the_simple_terms() php function? If so, can I call another function (which one?) to display the date in the same div block?

Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you’re not familiar with customising WordPress, then I suggest that you start here;

http://codex.wordpress.org http://wp.tutsplus.com

1. In cpt.php the rewrite code sample you posted should do the trick, just replace

'rewrite' => true,

with the code you’ve got.

2. If you want to get rid of the categories then remove my the_simple_terms() function, otherwise leave it and use one of the following side by side with it (the WordPress Codex is amazing, seriously :) ) :

http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_time http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_date

Cheers!

Default-user

Hi, this may be a stupid question but I don’t seem to be able to modify the portfolio gallery or the blog page: I tried removing elements like the_title() or the_simple_terms() from loop.php or archive-portfolio.php but I can see no change on the portfolio and blog page. Am I modifying the wrong files? (I have already disabled caching on my wp-config.php, just to make sure)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The files you’ll be looking for (page builder blocks) are in /inc/page-builder/blocks – there’s a few in there but the names should point you to the right files.

Hi,

Thanks for the great theme, very creative.

Have I run in to a bug? I tried using the portfolio however I found that when I clicked the ‘view project’ link this then breaks the filter nav (I might be missing something?)

Anyway, I decided the blog layout would work for my portfolio, so I’ve gone ahead and populated it. However, I find that when I hit the ‘load more posts’ button, anything that loads thereafter only expands as plain text, no image or gallery on show?

Lastly, when I’m in an expanded blog post and I hit the blog title, it opens up the separate post page, which again renders my filter menu useless as it navigates away from the main page.

Is there something I’m missing with these things?

thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. you’ll notice you have 2 nav locations, filter and standard, ‘standard’ is loaded on single-posts, ensure that you’ve not just placed your filter navigation in the ‘standard’ location, make a second menu and use absolute urls, e.g;

http://www.madeinebor.com/mf/#filter=.portfolio

2. Could you please leave a ticket at my support site with your URL so I can take a look at this?

Hi! I have automaticaly updated the version and my page broke down, what should I do now?

http://www.miprimoelchicharachero.com/
tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Disable any installed plugins, has the page sorted itself? 2. re-download the theme files, I keep the older versions of the themes in a folder called ‘old versions’, you can always drop back down to v1.1.0 if you need to by deleting and re-uploading the v1.1.0 version of the theme, hopefully disabling plugins will bring the site back though and then you can find the offending plugin.

Hi Tom,

I was wondering if I could create two menus, one in french and one in english which means that at the end I would have a total of +/- 10 filters pages.

Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You’ll need to modify the theme’s code to do this, unless you try using a multi language plugin with a language switcher? I’ve not tested the theme with a multi-languae plugin, but I see no real reason why qTranslate wouldn’t work, you’ll just have to check their documentation for adding multilingual content.

i hope this helps. tom

Thinking of buying the theme but I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there a way to put the social icons near the top (under the menu)? 2. Are there options in the theme for changing the font and size of the menu? 3. Is there a way to see the documentation before buying the theme? (that way I won’t need to ask a million questions!)

Thanks in advance.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Not currently, I’ll consider this for a theme option though.

2. The fonts can be changed through the CSS, to change the font & size of the nav would be a really simply job.

3. If you email me through my profile I’ll happily email the documents over.

Cheers

Default-user

Would you be able to point me to where in the CSS I’d need to make the change? It’s just that I find people don’t go all the way to the footer anymore to find social links.

Default-user

One more question: how easy is it to incorporate post-level sharing? Is this simply a matter of incorporating a WP plugin or…?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. I’d like to test and implement this myself rather than disappoint, I’ll be updating the theme in a few days so I’ll make sure this is looked into.

2. Very easy, the single post pages work with ZillaShare just by adding a little custom CSS, I can show you this upon purchase.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I’ll go ahead and purchase the theme and cross my fingers that an option to place the social icons under the menu appears soon ;)

Hello! I´ve purchase the theme and I´m loving it.

Still, I´m having some questions about a few problems with this:

1 – I want to insert a facebook like box in the main page. is there any way to do this trough page builder? I´ve tried a block of text and insert the code in it, but then nothing appears on the site. I´ve tryed a few plugins, but it happens with all of them.

2 – I translated the theme to portuguese, but still I can´t translate the contact form. How can I do this? I would suggest you make the form editable.

3 – Can I add a newsletter signup form into the home page? Is it possible?

4 – I need my site to be bilingual. Is there any way to do this with the theme?

Thank you for the support.

ps: I can´t add this to support forum because you ask me for a license code, but I can´t find that option on the themeforestpanel.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You can add a Facebook widget to the footer widget area if you find a plugin which suits your needs.

2. I need to double check the .po file, the contact form is definitely ready to be translated, but it appears it may not have found it’s way into the .po file annoyingly! you can translate it manually in /inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-contact-form-block.php

3. You can add a newsletter widget to the footer widget area if you find a plugin which suits your needs.

4. The theme is not tested with multi language plugins so I cannot guarantee compatibility, but I see no reason why this would take much (if any) work to get sorted. Try out qTranslate and see if you can do what you need. You’ll need to check out their documentation on adding multilingual content for areas like the page builder.

5. Ticksy still haven’t updated their image which shows where the purchase code is, If you take a read of my intro paragraph (Yellow Background) you’ll see directions to find your purchase code.

Thank you for the reply.

I found some workaround on some topics.

I don´t want to use the footer widget, but the page builder for the Facebook and Newsletter. I managed to do it with an iFrame, but it was good if we had a text box 100% code compatible, to make full use of plugins with the builder.

It was good if the e-mail could go to the .po for translation. For multi language, this was a must. =)

I´ve done a bi-lingue site with the WPML plugin and it´s working good. The menus and page builder weren´t 100% compatible, I had to make new menus and a specific builder template for the second language. The end result is great. I though you would like to know this feedback.

I´ve found the licence code! Thank you! And congratulations for a great theme.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Thanks for all your feedback points here, I’ll look into each one.

Also I’m really glad you’ve got WPML working with the theme, that’s ace.

Hello TommusRhodus, Congratulations on this design.

My question is, I can vary the size of the boxes? text or image? Make them smaller or larger? For example, in paragraph home, join, merge two rectangular picture boxes to get a square. To create a square image box. The size parameters can be varied?

Thank you very much!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m afraid not, the boxes are of a fixed size, and each differing box size is showcased across my two demos.

There’s only a few extra boxes;

1. A 1/3 Text box with no image.

2. A 2/3 Text box with no image.

3. A 1/1 Text box with no image & also variable height <- this is the only variable height box in the theme.

There is now a square image option also, but it’s not double width.

I hope this helps :)

Cheers!

Default-user

Hey, Do you mean that it is not double wide? The new square image option, not double-wide? means that the image does not reach the design limit? Do not be a square pede it reaches the width of the design? I do not say the width of the page. No what I mean … could you show me or explain it a little more specifically this new option?

Just bought the MYFOLIO theme. I am not a programmer but have had some some experience, esp with WYSIWYG sites. I bought this theme specifically for the smooth navigation transitions in your demo (rather than the “jumping from page to page” look/feel). How do I get that?

Hey there,

I’m not sure when you bought the theme, but I’ve just done some video tutorials for MyFolio :)

Check your documentation, if there isn’t a videos section on the bottom of it then check here;

Theres 5 videos for MyFolio – I recommend starting fresh and working with the videos, you’ll see how to get a site like my demo site in minutes, and then you can change the content to your own.

In the latest update, you’ve made it possible to have the social icons in the header (which is great) but it only allows them to be set dead center (which doesn’t work for me as it makes things a bit unbalanced.) I tried just setting the alignment to right in the stylesheet but then the text links appear (and overlap each other on the right.) However if I set the list items to hidden in the stylesheet.php then of course the icons aren’t clickable.

Could you suggest a way for me to set the social icons on the right underneath the menu?

Thanks!
