Hi, I’m having some trouble getting my video to open in a lightbox. I’ve tried all of the different blocks but each time, when I click on it -it will open to a huge full screen in Vimeo. I’ve tried both an embed code and just the URL itself but its not working. I know someone on here asked about this before and I got it to work but now its back to doing the same thing again. How do I fix this? Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The link you want to use is the URL within the iFrame embed code, so if you grab the iFrame embed code, and then take the link out of the src=”” attribute, you should have a nice working video.

Cheers

Hi Tommus, thanks for your quick reply. I currently have the URL within the iframe code in there (taken out of the src”””“) and that does not allow it to play within a lightbox for me. Could it be anything else? I dont think its the video code but something with the blocks or portfolio post. Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Please try using this, the vimeo URL I use in my demo;

http://player.vimeo.com/video/38370036?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0&color=ffffff

If that doesn’t work then we’ve narrowed down the issue away from the URLs. Next step, disable any installed plugins / extensions / widgets, is the issue fixed?

If you’re still having problems after the above please leave a ticket at my support site with a URL to your own;

Hello, I see you have done quite a lot of updates since my last question, and plenty of sales ! :)

Is it possible now to have a Projects Portfolio Page with blocks that open single posts, and a Gallery Portfolio Page with blocks that open a lightbox?

Can we use a different filter block with each of these Portfolios?

Can we already make multiple Portfolios?

Thank you, once again.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. I’m afraid not, settings are still global for whether or not portfolio items load in lightboxes or single posts.

2. We’re still looking for a decent way of creating a gallery lightbox, without lots of wasted mark-up and bandwidth, we’ve still not found a satisfactory solution to this.

3. No, the filter portfolio block loads all portfolio content and provides the filters to modify this downward into categories.

4. Yes, you can seperate out your portfolio posts into category based blocks using the pre-filtered portfolio block, this block can then be assigned to differing sections of your site.

Cheers!

Ok. I’ll keep on waiting for this functionality. Thank you very much.

Hello Tom

I have a problem with the ‘page’ portfolio (Galleries). She gets extra down the home and when I press the ‘galleries’ menu. The elements of the home stays on the page. Any idea?

When I’m in ‘MF Page Builder’. The block ‘Portfolio wFilters’ has in ‘up this block under All which section’: Galleries.

http://helenejacubowitz.be/WordPress3/

thank you

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You must be using multiple portfolio blocks in the same page then I guess, with multiple items submitted to the ‘Galeries’ section.

Your intro block has also been placed in the ‘Galeries’ section by the looks of things.

Take your time and investigate your set-up in the page builder, you’ll find the correct set-up for the way you want your site.

Cheers

Hi Tommus,

Great theme, love it. Just a quick question, what would the ideal dimensions be for a background image if I was to use one?

An ideal logo dimension would be great too, thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

A background image would depend entirely on yourself, test one out and play with the settings for it in “appearance” => “customise MF”, personally I wouldn’t recommend it, your site could end up looking a little crowded with content :)

Your logo ideally should be 182px wide with a similar height to that of my demo.

Cheers!

Hi,

Love the theme. Quick question though. I am using the twitter block on my homepage and I was wondering if there was any way for it to display a # (hashtag) instead of my tweets.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m afraid not, the new Twitter API is pretty limited as it is, I’m afraid this is something that, at least for now, definitely won’t be possible in MyFolio without surprisingly significant custom work.

Cheers!

Hi. Theme looks incredible. Is there any way to include a layer slider on the homepage in 1 block across the top? Also, is there any way to make the page a little wider? Looks like its about 960px wide and on big screens, it looks rather narrow. On tablets, it looks perfect. Ideally, i’m looking to add a layerslider or animated slider like revolution slider on the home page and have it be a little wider to grab more attention to site visitors.

Is this possible/doable? Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Increasing the page width should be a really easy job if you’re even semi-confident in CSS, you could take this up to 4 columns wide on big screens with relative ease. If you buy the theme give me a shout on my support tickets, I’ll see if I can quickly knock that together for you.

As for layer slider, you could do this pretty easily by modifying the page-template included in the theme, just HTML in a div to your size liking and then throw the layerslider call in there – you’ll need to add a class to the div so it works with the filters, such as ‘about’ (just simple isotope classes)

Anyway, I hope this makes sense :)

I’d be interested in seeing a four-column option as well if that’s something you’re thinking of adding to a subsequent release. The theme looks great but so many screens now are substantially wider.

tommusrhodus

No problem, I’ll put something together for the next update.

Hi Thommus,

Is there a way to randomize the intro images that scroll? I have 5 images that I want to have randomize so the same image does not always pop up when the site loads.

is there a way to do this?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Not by default in the theme, I’ll consider this as an addition to the theme. If you’re capable you can try making modifications in /inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-section-intro-block.php

Otherwise I’ll see if I can get this into the next update in a week or two.

Cheers!

Also, when i try and navigate away from a blog, it gives me a 404 message.

If you click on the link below and try to click on any of the navigation buttons other than the main image, it wont go to it.

http://followmylife.org/week-1/#comments

Any idea why?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Your links look like this;

http://www.followmylife.org/mf#filter=.about

Notice how ‘mf’ is still in there from my demo URL?

Instead get rid of that so your link looks like this;

3 small questions:

- How can I adjust the size of the columns in the home page? Is this possible? I wanted to change their height, make it smaller.

- Can you make it possible to add content in the columns through html, just like we can do it in any post or page? It would be awesome to have a full-size text column that would let me insert whatever kind of content, like a photo-gallery an embed video or whatever I would choose.

- Would you add a possibility to choose a left column menu instead of the one in the top?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You’ll need to do this by modifying the appropriate styles in styles.php – there will be quite a large amount of work to do here, but you can start by looking for a height of 402px – you may also need to modify deeper theme files to correctly finish this process.

2. You should be able to insert HTML manually into the page builder blocks, but depending on what you add, you may need to just add a little CSS to the theme to accommodate your needs.

3. I’ll look into adding this to the theme, but I feel we may not accomplish this in our base version of MyFolio – perhaps this would be a job for a freelancer if you really need it?

All the best!

Thank you for the reply Tom. Your support is great, please keep having the patience for us. eheh =)

Commenting on your answers:

1- I´ll try to do it. I don´t know php, but I´ll try to see if I can manage it. Perhaps you could add in the future and extra text-box with a smaller height. What would be sweet. We could even put it on top of a smaller size image. That would give us some creative options.

2 – I´m able to modify the font-size, bold, family, etc. But I can´t add a video or an image gallery to it for example. I would suggest another feature, but I´m not sure if it´s possible: can you add an text edit type tool the builder, like the one wordpress has for posts?

3 – This is the one that I don´t really need it, but that would add great value to the theme if it was possible to do it.

Best regards, Nuno

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Ok, I’ll consider this for the future of the theme :)

2. Yeah, inline videos and galleries I definitely wouldn’t recommend anyway, could end up looking a bit messy & videos work best in a popup in the theme. As for edit buttons, we’re looking into this, but it’s definitely a little buggy at the moment, maybe in the future.

3. No problem, as mentioned this is one that would definitely need some considering on our end though :)

Cheers!

PS. My hompage is “www.yaso.com”

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You can upload your portfolio by using the ‘portfolio’ post type, and by using ‘the featured image’.

2. Just tested your site on an iPhone 5 & Google Nexus & – everything works perfectly as expected.

Hi there, I noticed throughout the comments that you mentioned you’d be looking into a full 3 column width image – is this yet an option? If so, how do I go about finding it. Would love to be able to use it.

My second question is, when I upload copy into a text box or image/text box it runs over the edge if too long – how do I get this to either shorten and link to a new page or lengthen the box to fit?

Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

We’re working on a full width image, hopefully coming in the next update :)

If your text overruns the box, just use a larger sized text box or split your text across multiple boxes. If you have way too much then use the full width text box, it has a variable height.

Cheers!

Hi Tom,

First of all, many thank for this awsome template. Looks great and has an amazing usability!

I’ve a question about the blog- and portfolio-boxes in the page builder:

On my site, I’ve put all the content into one page in order to be able to use the animated filter navigation throughout the page. This works fine so far, except for the fact, that I use diffrent pre-filtered blog boxes of which only on should be shown on the home page. All the others including the portfolio items should be hidden on the hompage. But I couldn’t figure out a way to do it.. Is there a way to show/hide them on the home page, like it’s possible for the text- and picture-boxes?

Thanks al lot in advance for your helpful reply ;-)

Cheers!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

To place blog or portfolio items on the homepage;

1. Assign you blog or portfolio items to any other section of your site.

2. In the individual edit screens for your blog or portfolio posts, use the ‘show on homepage’ tickbox underneath the WP Editor.

Cheers!

Hi Tommus,

Is there any functionality with Instagram?

I would like to add an Instagram filter to rotate pictures of a hashtag on one of the pages.

Just a shot in the dark, but is there anyway to do this?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The theme isn’t tied to Instagram by default, take a look for an instagram plugin that creates a widget that you can then use in the footer :)

Hey Tommus,

Just a few questions before I buy the theme if that’s OK.

1. Is it possible to have a full width slider on the homepage, instead of the one that’s 3/4 slider and 1/4 text? 2. I run a photography business, so it is very important to me that people can easily share images to FB, Twitter or Pinterest. Is that possible? This also goes for blogposts or portfolio items as a whole. 3. The blogposts in the bottom also open in the bottom. Is there a possibility that when you open a blogpost it automatically moves to the top so you wouldn’t have to scroll down? 4. How easy would it be to change the fonts of the site? I’d like it to be my company’s font (which is a Google webfont BTW). 5. How does the lack of permalinks availability (due to the filter system) relate to SEO with MyFolio? I use permalinks in my current website for better Google rating. Will the filter system cancel that? 6. How does the website decide on the ‘design’ of the portfolio section? I noticed that the portfolio in the ‘Light’ version of the theme looks different than the standard demo. Is that something I could control? 7. I also noticed that the portfolio in the standard demo just enlarges the photos and the portfolio in the ‘Light’ version actually opens the portfolio item on a new page. Is this something you can control?

I’m really sorry about all the question before I purchase, but I have bought too many themes that just disappoint in the back-end of Wordpress by lacking enough options, or, like recently: just completely don’t work. So I’d like to be sure of my options beforehand if that’s OK.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer me!

Cheers, Peter

tommusrhodus

Hey There Peter,

1. There currently isn’t a full-width slider, we’ll be working on this for the future of the theme :)

2. There’s built in support for the plugin ‘Zilla Share’ which will allow users to share your content from single-post or single-portfolio pages.

3. Maybe for the future, though it would take a surprising amount of javascript to move forward, for now we’re quite happy with the post loading in place, you can however disable this preview load in the theme options if you want to just go straight through to the full post instead.

4. You can just use the WP Google Fonts plugin to do this and overwrite our core CSS, or simply change the font family in the CSS, only 2 minutes worth of work whichever way you fancy.

5. Yes, you can use multiple static pages instead with myfolio if you wish and discard the filter system, this will of course mean losing the animation though, so it’s a tradeoff I guess.

6. If you see differences between the two demos then it’s possible within the theme, the two are just there to show off (some) of the theme features.

7. Same again :) Full control for yourself :)

I hope this helps you Peter!

All the best

When I installed the theme, I went into Customize MF and made a change to save the info to make it look like the demo more. It kept the original colors and background. Also when I alter the website name and save, it doesn’t actually save my website name. Is there a reason why this is happening?

I installed the theme, got rid of all useless plug ins, installed the demo XML and everything is still the same. What am I doing wrong?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Are you using GoDaddy for hosting? If the theme options aren’t saving then that seems to point to a hosting / server error as the theme option framework I use is part of the WordPress core.

Either way, feel free to leave a ticket at my support site with a link to your site and I’ll see if I can investigate further;

Is it possible for the images to expand once they are open?

Very beautiful theme I am very interested in buying it!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

In your theme download the lightbox will open a larger image that fills the most of the screen, I keep the images smaller on my demo to keep the laod on my server down :)

I’d like to second someone earlier wishing for the possibility to randomize the images in the Intro block, that would be fantastic. Also, could you think about adding the possibility to decide on what side the image and the text could be in the different blocks? Adding several e.g. Intro blocks after each other would look better then. Thanks for all the work you put into this theme!

Hi, I would really love to buy it, it’s an awesome theme. I have one question in mind, Dose the portfolio support images slideshow? I mean under Italy I will see 3 Pictures, and one of these pictures has 5 slideshow pictures ..

Hope that my question is not confusing

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

See my alternate demo;

Instead of the portfolio items opening in a lightbox, you can send your users straight through to a single-post where you can insert a gallery, video or image.

I have been looking for a simple theme and I think I finally found it. I have two questions.

1. Can I have a full width slider in the homepage?

2. Is there a function that would allow me to expand the images once I click on them?

Sorry if this was answered already.

1. Yes :) I’ve just added this as an option in the theme.
