Hi, I purchased this theme a month or so ago and I see there’s been some updates to it since then, but it thinks it’s up to date. If I just re-download it would that be the latest and then I just uninstall the old and install the new then?

Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You’re exactly right :)

Enjoy the updates!

Just wondering how that update to the contact form is coming? I’m getting inundated with spam.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’ll be pushing an update live tomorrow with an updated script which has proven good success with a test group.

Any progress on that update? It auto-updated to 1.16 but I’m still getting spam.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The auto update should be taking you to v1.1.7 – if not, grab 1.1.7 with a download from theme forest – the only file you need to update is contact.php

Cheers

Sorry, I meant 1.1.7. I’m still getting spam, though it’s less than before. However I’m not seeing any difference in how the contact form works – what’s changed?

tommusrhodus

The script no longer allows formatted links or short code based links to be placed into the script text – I’m aiming for non-intrusive spam catching as much as possible and this seemed to kill the issue for my test group.

Perhaps I’ll need to go a bit more serious then to get rid of this for good?

One nice feature would be the option of adding some time of captcha capability – it can be turned off by default but having the option to turn it on would be useful. The other thing I noticed, which may have already been fixed, is that in 1.1.6 even after I turned off the contact form I was still getting tons of spam. Is it possible that one can direct link to the contact form post action even if the form itself is turned off? If so, it might make sense to have the script check to see if the form is enabled (e.g. visible in at least one filter or .home) before accepting the post.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Would you mind leaving me a ticket on my support site with an example of the emails you’re getting, and also a link to you own site?

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

I think that would help us keep this moving greatly :)

my theme did not update automatically how I can I update it?

tommusrhodus

Hey there Gio,

The auto-update should be taking you to v1.1.7, if that’s not happening you can grab the updated files from your themeforest account and simply overwrite the theme files through FTP.

I also tried to download the 1.7 version, but it still downloaded the 1.6. I’m also getting tons of spam. How do I get the updated version? Doesn’t seem to be the automatic download…

The contact.php under HTML folder is dated May 29…where’s the recent one?

Hey there,

Contact me by my profile page and I’ll send you an updated script for the HTML version if that’s hat you’re using.

Hi,

Just purchased your theme. So far so good, I like the looks of the theme can’t say much about the usability yet.

I’d like to know where to translate texts like “drop me a line”, “Search…” etcetera. Looked in the po file and in code couldn’t find it. Second, where can I set the logo size? It’s shown really small.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

‘search’ should be in the .po file, titles line ‘drop me a line’ can be edited in the blocks in the page builder, you’ll find most of this when you start adapting the site to your own content :)

Cheers

carmus Purchased

Hi, I found the ‘drop me a line’, easy one :) I also edited the .po file, but no luck. I edited the msgstr where I wanted a different tekst to appear. Nothing happens, refresh, rename the file to nl_NL.po (because I use the dutch setting), no luck whatsoever. What could be the problem?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You need to generate a .mo from the .po and also set the language in wp-config.php – the following video will help :)

Hi there,

I translated everything through the po/mo file and through the page builder. I can’t set the contact form fields Name, e-mail, comment and submit’ through this method. How can I edit these fields? Thnx.

tommusrhodus

Hmm, that’s odd, but anyway, if you take a look in /inc/page-builder/blocks/aq-contact-form-block.php – then you’ll see the fields you want to translate like this;

__('Name','mf')

It would be awesome if there was an option to flip the “Intro” block on the page builder to add some variety. Also larger sizes for the “Image” block would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the hard work you do on this, really great stuff.

tommusrhodus

Thank you :)

I’ve noted your ideas and will see what I can do.

Wordpress won’t update me from my older version. If I uninstall and then install manually, will I lose all of my customizations to the theme that I currently have.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you’ve modified the theme files then you’ll lose your customisations either way with a manual or automatic install.

If you’ve not touched any of the themes code, just overwrite the files via FTP, you’ve got nothing to worry about with your theme-options or posts etc. Only code customisations.

I’m very happy with this theme! Not only does it function just as advertised (if not better) I have gotten very fast and detailed answers to any of my concerns on my support tickets. My website is starting to look kickass and the price I paid was a bargain compared to what I got. On top of that the author seems very committed to updating the theme and listening to his audience for improvements. Good work and keep rocking this awesome theme!

I don’t know if this is unorthodox but pre-purchase I would’ve loved to see how people had implemented the theme in their own work so I will give a link to my website so anyone can see how I am using it.

Hi,

Just purchased your theme. Uses the Page Builder for my frontpage. Created a new template and insert shortcode [template id=”27”]. In “attributes” activated “Page Builder Template”.

I just put a “Text Full”-Box to my template, named test. As you can see, it is there (http://www.malwasneues.com/jongo/). Great. But there are also some more boxes, like archive, search, and myn more. How can I cutomize my template, so that these things are not shown?

Thanks and regards, Marcel

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Go to “appearance” => “widgets” and remove the automatic widgets from your footer :)

You may find the theme easier to work with by installing my demo data by the way, here’s a video of me detailing the set-up process with the demo data;

Sub Menu ?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Make sure you’re using at least version 1.1.6 of the theme and that you don’t have a child theme installed that could be overriding my version. A sub-menu was added in version 1.1.6 a few weeks ago.

Hi, lovely template, congrats, can you tell me if it’s possible to have the images in the portfolio section “Pop Up” as a larger image file than the thumbnail please? Your Demo shows it being the same size as the thumb. Also is it possible to change the size that the Vimeo player pops out as, so that it’s either 720 or 1080 exactly? Many thanks, SixShooter

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Yep, the thumbnails on my demo represent the cropped images by the theme, the lightbox will open images full-size, uncropped to a 90% proportion of the screen size. If kept the images cropped on my demo so that my server bandwidth is reduced, as theme forest traffic bombards my poor little server :)

2. I’m afraid not, the vimeo (or youtube) popups are proportional to screen size only.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply Tom. I just have another question I’m afraid, I’m trying to use my Custom Logo which works fine but is quite small. Is there a way of changing the constraints on logo size (I’m guessing it has a height or width restriction?) Any code I can adjust for that please? Thanks again, SixShooter

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The logo has a width restriction due to MyFolio being a mobile-first design. Scale your window width right down and you’ll see the logo fit really nicely at mobile size.

If you need to discuss it further with a link to your site, feel free to leave a ticket at;

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

And I’ll of course do what I can.

Default-user

Thanks again, can you tell me if there is a way of having a box that is full width which consists of 2/3 text and 1/3 image please? Also I’m trying to have an image on my About Me section but it shows up in the Portfolio>View All. Is there a way of stopping it showing up in the Portfolio please? Many thanks.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

There isn’t I’m afraid, but why not just use a 1/3 image block and a 2/3 text block? If it’s separating the two that you don’t like, you could set your body background colour the same as your blocks colour and then there will be no gaps.

RE: Point 2, I’ve identified this and will be issuing an update with this fix.

Cheers!

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply Tom, yes I have been using the 1/3 image and 2/3 text option for my About ME section and it looks great thanks, although as you said it does leave the image showing up in the View All portfolio section which looks a bit weird/narcissistic having a picture of myself in my portfolio! At least I know now that it’s not something I’m doing wrong. I look forward to the update as I’m waiting to go live at the mo! Many thanks, Six Shooter

Default-user

Just one more thing! Is there a way of changing the colour of the Pre Loader “turning” thing that appears in the middle of the page please? it doesn’t show to well on a very light grey background which I want the same as my overall background colour. Maybe you could let me know where it’s located in the files? Thanks, SixShooter

Make a ticket at my support site and I’ll point it out to you (tiny bit of code involved)

Subject is not optimized for search engines. All pages metadescription one and all articles in the blog a title. This is very bad! To advance in the search engines, this topic is not appropriate.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

As a one-page portfolio template, I agree, there are better sites for SEO – but this is for your portfolio, not for as many SEO techniques as possible? I’ve done as much as I can for SEO purposes with the site, but there comes a time when your content has to speak for itself, and that’s what MyFolio is for :)

If you have any suggestions, feel free to open a suggestion ticket on our suport site;

Duplicate, sorry!

Default-user

It was necessary to do so at the pages you could write your Title and Description. Description Now you have all the sections of the site is the same. It turns out that it’s just a business card.

Default-user

I put a plug-in that allows you to make any page a title and description, but you have the template already have it, which is substituted for all pages. How to clean it up in your default template description?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can remove the built in metas really easily :)

Go to “appearance” => “editor” and click on header.php on the right, then delete this;

<meta name="description" content="<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>">
<title><?php if (is_home() || is_front_page()) { echo bloginfo('name'); } else { echo wp_title(''); } ?></title>

Do the same for header-single.php as well, now your plugin can generate your required metas and titles.

Hi! looks like you’ve done quite a nice job here…and we’re thinking of purchasing…BUT can we get rid of the white arrows? those little white triangle pointers? they likely won’t work with our style… cool to find your stuff though. please advise. Thanks T$!

Yeah totally! Those arrows can be removed / changed by modifying just a little CSS.

Hey, great theme, It was very easy to customize (although the css is tricky because it´s a php file and Dreamweaver doesnt use any color-codes with that, so editing that is no fun). I have two questions:

1.) I added the filter links to buttons in the content of my page like this <a href="#filter=.portfolio">Have a look at my portfolio</a>. This works fine, but the new “page” is loaded on the height where the button is, means the user does not start at the top of the viewport but jumps to the height that the button was. Is there a way to fix that? Adding a # at the end of the link does not work. I understand that it is a one page template, but it would be nice if I could include a “to the top” in the link, if you know what I mean.

2.) I love the MF Page Builder, but I cannot use it for my clients, as they can´t write any HTML. Is it possible to integrate any kind of editor there? Adding images, making text bold, links etc., that all does only work with HTML coding.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. If you’re editing in a text editor with highlighting, you can change the file name from styles.php to styles.css whilst your working to help you out, though I appreciate that a pure CSS file would be a little easier :)

2. Yeah, if you open /js/scrollup.js in your theme files and change this;

jQuery('#toTop').click(function() {

to this;

jQuery('#toTop, #options a, a[href^="#filter"]').click(function() {

3. The MF Page Builder is built upon the aqua page builder by syamilmj;

https://github.com/syamilmj/Aqua-Page-Builder

We’re in the process of trying to add a GUI to the text blocks, but it’s not available yet I’m afraid.

Hi! Just purchased the theme last week. It truly is awesome! 1st question – is it possible to insert a logo or text above the preloader? 2nd – is it possible to maintain the top header menu buttons when entering full page of a post or other item?

thnx!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Thanks! :)

1. Not currently, great idea though, I’ll add it to an update!

2. Yeah, just use the alternate menu location ‘standard’ in “appearance” => “menus”, there’s details about using this second location in your documentation.

Cheers!

Default-user
ranmor84 Purchased

1. cool thnx :)

2. I really tried looking everywhere but couldn’t manage to do it… I only saw an option for a menu if I create a new Page Builder Template page and then it’s an entirely different menu. The problem is that the main menu is based on filters, therefore if i’m in a new page, the menu needs to lead back to the homepage and then apply the filter. so i’m guessing that isn’t possible now… am I mistaken?

btw, I tried the site on mobile (both android and IOS) and it usually doesn’t work unless I refresh it several times and even then it doesn’t behave well… is there anything that can be done?

thnx!!

this is my site if u need to check for bugs: www.ranmorphoto.com I changed fonts and RTL’d most of it but it shouldn’t change too much. 2nd question refers to placing a menu here for example: http://www.ranmorphoto.com/%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%A8%D7%A1-%D7%A6%D7%99%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%9D-%D7%91%D7%A1%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%99-2/ sorry about the long URL – it’s in hebrew.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

2. Totally possible (you can see it in my alternate demo here http://www.madeinebor.com/mflight ) just go to “appearance” => “menus”, there’s 2 menu locations, filters & standard, usage is detailed in the written documentation, and at the bottom of the documentation there’s even videos about this :)

3. I’d need to take a look at your site to examine this as this isn’t an issue with the base theme, please feel free to leave a ticket at;

Hey Mate!

Great theme! very slick! Although i have a few questions..

1. I cant get my pages to animate between the pages … 2. Can the pre load dots be changed to red dots or another colour 3. How can i create more space in the header for a larger logo??

Default-user
bennash Purchased

www.infuzions.com.au/hornsby

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. You should be adding all your content to only one page template in the page builder, and then to only one published page, using the filter navigation to animate between sections for you. There’s details of this in your written documentation, and videos at the bottom explaining further, please take the time to go through this :)

2. The pre loader dots will take the colour of your ‘block’ colour, though you can change this manually. Go to “appearance” => “editor” and click on styles.php in the right hand column.

Find this;

.windows8 .wBall .wInnerBall { position: absolute; width: 4px; height: 4px; background: <?php echo $option['block_color']; ?>;

Change to:

.windows8 .wBall .wInnerBall { position: absolute; width: 4px; height: 4px; background: red;

3. The logo area is predefined I’m afraid as MF was built to be as mobile first, and as mobile friendly as possible, scale your site down to see what I mean about the available space for the logo.

Cheers

Champ! thanks for the input….

The only answer i dont understand is 3.

What is the recommended file size for a logo??

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you add the following to your Custom CSS box in the theme options you will get a slightly wider logo for desktop;

h1#logo, h1#logo a {width: 280px; }
h1#logo { margin-top: 20px; }
@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
h1#logo, h1#logo a {width: 182px; }
h1#logo { margin-right: 0px; }
}

Cheers
