I am close to purchasing this theme, but I need something functional asap.

This site will be for a talk-radio show, based on interviewing people. Hence audio, pictures of guests and bio’s are the most important aspects. So….

A few questions:

1. Is it possible to link the circles on the home page to items other than portfolios…ie…blog or a static page?

In more detail…..The front circle icons will be the face of the person being interviewed – when clicked on I need it to go to a page like a blog page(but it is not a blog) – eg. http://www.be-themes.com/paws/demo-post-1/ – which will have the circle picture top left, the bio and audio player at the bottom….is that all possible within the current version of this theme?

2. Does this theme support HTML/self-hosted videos – and can they be full screen? I presume this is just a jPlayer vdieo that I can change the skin of and just upload the video to word press – correct?

3.My logo is quite a long name (16 letters with 2 spaces) – will that just push the menu wider and how would that work on say an iPhone? I tried putting in my logo using firebug and it simply made it very small within your existing framework/size – too small. Can I change that to make it longer?

4. I love the site/design so well done…but it appears to just be for showcasing pictures in the main – do you think this site is versatile enough for my requirements?

5. This may seem like an odd question but are you a vegetarian or vegan by any chance?

Good job,

David.

Hi David,

Very happy that you like my theme. To be honest, the current version of the theme does not support the features you need. But if you can wait for a day, I am pushing an update that will address most of the features you require. Here are the features being added.

1. Ability to link the portfolio items to an external link or a blog page instead of opening up a gallery

2. Use custom video uploaded to the media library apart from youtube and vimeo videos. But we will be using video.js instead of jplayer.

3. Don’t worry about the logo. I will myself set it up properly for you. The cornered layout has a fixed logo height, but can be changed in the code and by adjusting the padding an increased height can be supported. The width is based on the height. With the centered layout, you can set the height of the logo from the backend.

4. If you do purchase the theme I will be happy to make these minor customizations for you and the update will solve most of the other issues. You want to use Soundcloud to host your audio files or only self hosted audio. In order to develop a shortcode for including an audio player. Sound cloud is easier and better.

5. Yes I am a proud vegetarian, not a vegan though.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

kind regards, Swami

Hey Swami, thanks for the prompt reply. Great for us that you are vegetarian…. we are proud Vegans and would live no other way. We believe all species deserve love and respect.

Anyway, back to business.

At this stage we are planning to keep everything self-hosted (audio/video/images etc) but we will explore Soundcloud further – thanks.

Excellent news regarding linking portfolio items to external link or blog or page – thanks for this.

A couple more questions;

1. In the ‘rectangular portfolio’ version you use an image overlay which includes the portfolio/element title which is great. As you mentioned on the theme description, if users want to display the title of the portfolio they should use this style. Would you consider the possibility with the ‘circular portfolio’ images to overlay the portfolio/element title across the centre of the image? We feel the circular option makes the site look more special and unique and without a title overlay it becomes a bit of guess work for the user viewing the page.

2. Also we manage our other sites through WP Multisite – is your theme multisite compatible?

Thanks again.

Hi David,

I have uploaded an update today with the ability to link portfolio items to external links along with several other features. I am working on supporting self hosted embedded videos into the gallery. We did get a beta running, but ran into issues in mobile devices, but are continuing to work on it. But I would recommend Youtube & Vimeo as they are ideal for pan-browser / device support. Why re-invent the wheel, when they have mastered video embeds.

Actually incorporating titles in circular portfolio is on the top of our agenda. Already received few other requests for this feature. I am working on it in a way it doesn’t affect the present aesthetics of the theme. Should be available soon. Should you decide to purchase Paws, you can be rest assured that the theme will be updated continuously with valuable feature additions made on a regular basis.

Mind blowing WP theme!!! Great work guys! Also, I’m glad to see mrdeebee concerns answered (b’coz I had very similar questions). But here’s another quick question, can you incorporate and implement Woo-Commerce & Social Login to this? Please advise asap, thanks!

brandexponents

Hi Machollers,

Happy you like my theme. Actually woo commerce integration and Social Login do not actually line up with the updates we have planned for the theme at the moment. If you would like, you can hire me to customize the theme based on your requirements. Awaiting your response.

Hi There! Considering getting this as an alternative to my current theme, but I have a few quick questions as to some changes I would want to make.

At the moment I have a somewhat larger header and footer area than this theme has, which I would like to maintain. I have a logo for my name that I would like to keep at its current size, rather than shrink it to the narrower bar you are using on the demo site. How easy is it to change the height size of the header and footer areas?

Additionally, I was wondering how easy it is to customize the appearance/color of the header and footer bars, as I have gotten attached to my color scheme and don’t want to change the aesthetics of my site, only the functionality.

Also, is it possible to configure the number of items in a row for the portfolio? I’d prefer it if the circles didn’t go all the way to the edge of the screen.

Thanks!!

brandexponents

Hi Cparthemos,

Happy you like me theme! Yes if you choose the centered layout, you can easily increase the height of the logo from the backend. There is a setting that allows you to do that. The height of the logo will determine the height of the header (fixed padding). But with a bit of css , you can customize it any way you want and I will be happy to assist. The color scheme of the header and the footer cannot be customized from the backend. But it very easy with css and I can customize the appearance of header and footer for free, if you choose to purchase my theme. There is an option to use a bigger circle for the portfolio items which will reduce the number of items per row. But the spacing between each circle has been optimally chosen by us to make sure it looks good across a wide variety of devices and screen sizes. But again I can customize this for you with a couple of lines of css. To preserve the high quality of aesthetics that TF demands, we had compromise a bit on flexibility, as this is a theme with unique styling and consistency of the design was a key issue at the time of approval. Let me know if you have any further questions, and if you choose to purchase the theme be assured you will receive all the support you need from my end to get your site up and running.

kind regards, Swami

This looks like a good theme. We are a design studio based in the Basque Country. Couple of questions:

1. Is it fully responsive?

2. How easy is it to translate? Our site will be in Basque but we also need to offer the site in Spanish.

3. Home page on the demo is the portfolio. Is it possible to have the portfolio separately? And on the home page just a full screen image, or even a video?

4. Can the fonts be changed?

Thank you, Joseba

brandexponents

Hi Joseba,

Thanks for considering to purchase my theme. Let me answer your questions.

1. Yes its fully responsive, works great in mobile phones and tablets and the galleries support touch gestures as well.

2. I have localized the entire theme and provided .po and .mo files required for translation. You can easily use a tool like poedit and translate the theme. There are plugins too that can assist you in the process.

3. You can basically set any page as the home page from the wordpress backend. Totally flexible.

4. Yes the fonts of each section can be changed (navigation, footer, headings, body, widgets ) all individually. There is even a font previewer in the backend along with the option to choose from over 500 google fonts.

I am sure you will find it quite easy to set up and I am always available for support. Hope you will purchase my theme.

kind regards, Swami

Hello!

I recently purchased your theme and re-configured my website using it – it looks great and on the whole I have very few issues, but I do have a few questions that I thought might be more appropriate for a support forum ticket. That said, I do not know where the support forum is? I could not find that information in the theme documentation.

Thanks,

Julia Lichtblau

Hi Julia,

Thanks for purchasing my theme. We do not have a support forum yet and we address issues here in the comments section or you can even email it directly to swami at brandexponents dot com . I will be very happy to assist you.

I’m having a very tuff time uploading this theme to my Wordpress account. When i did get it to install, it wouldn’t activate or perform the live view. Wordpress can’t help me, they keep telling me to contact author but and I can’t reach the author. That’s what troubles me the most. I’ve spent all day trying to research ways to get this theme to work and unable to seek consistent tech support. I really like this theme but I’m about to throw in the towel. FRUSTRATED! Can someone please assist!

brandexponents

Hi Ellis,

I emailed you saying I will be off for 10 hours, and it was sunday mid night and yet within hours of my email, you want to pour your frustrations here. I don’t understand how this will resolve your issue. You wordpress admin is NOT accessible. All i get is a “The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.Please contact the server administrator, cgiadmin@yourhostingaccount.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. ” You get this message when you have a SERVER ISSUE. The FTP details you provided is incorrect. I will certainly provide you with all assistance in setting up the theme, but I need an accessible wordpress site without server issues or ftp access. The FTP credentials you provided isn’t working. The “Broken theme/Stylesheet missing” error you got when you tried to install the theme is actually not a problem with the theme, but because of improper installation. Theme Forest and Envato receives complaints frequently because of this common mistake and they have made a screencast to help buyers.

I can understand your frustration but at the same time appreciate your patience as I certainly want to help you set up a great website using my theme.

kind regards Swami

I want to apologize for expressing my frustration regarding the installation of this theme. After further research it had nothing to do with the theme and everything to do with the storage space of my wordpress site. This issue was resolved by Swami and I thank him for having patience and working with me through this. I love everything about this theme and that is why i was frustrated and really wanted this to work. I would definitely recommend this theme to any and everyone. My apologies and thank you again Swami for all your support.

Hello Paws!

I recently switched over to this theme from another themeforest theme, and I have not regretted my decision in the slightest. It is highly configurable, and intuitively so. The design is sleek, and it adapts well to mobile and other devices.

In addition, although the support forum is coming soon, I have had no difficulty getting quick, thorough, and very helpful responses from Swami and the gang, which resolved my issues quickly – as well as recommendations for plugins and user tips to improve my web design experience.

All in all, the best decision I made in my website building experience and I highly recommend this theme and its developers to anyone!

Hi

I love this theme, But is it possible to skip the black colourbar behind the buttons ? so the buttons is placed dirctly on the background image ?

brandexponents

Hi Robert,

Sure! If you are purchasing the theme, I can customize it for you. Its just a couple of lines of CSS that I need to remove to make it work that way.

kind regards, Swami

Default-user

Sweet. So then I can Make my logo a bit bigger, and place the buttons on the same line as the logo ?

Was also wondering if it is possible to change the font on the buttons to a font I have made myselfe with pentool in Adobe Illustrator, and upload it as tif files ?

Default-user

oh yes, Maby make the thumbnails more closer to each other instead of the big spaces ? In this case, Will it cost much to fix these details ?

Kinde regards

Hjan robert

brandexponents

Hi Hjan Robert,

Adjusting the space is a very easy adjustment to make. If you purchase the theme, I will do these customizations for free.

kind regards, Swami

Default-user

okey :)

Sorry to bother you again.

I just have some last questions:

1. is it possible to have menu buttons and logo to be shown all the time, even when looking at Projects ? I understand that when someone preview a project, they will see just the picture and nothing else. But in My case I would like the menu and logo to be seen all the time.

2. Is it also possible to have a white background, or a self made structured jpeg?

3. The info about the project that appears when you press the info button, Is it possible to make this window smaller, so it is possible to view the project and read the info at the same time ?

I appreciate your answers :)

Kinde Regards Hjan

Awesome theme! Great work! I Purchased earlier today, and am very satisfied thus far. I have a couple questions though.

1.) Is it possible to use the corner style nav bar, but keep the rest of my content and pages centered?

2.) I must be totally overlooking something. I’m trying to get a youtube video full screen on home page, but can’t seem to figure out how to do it. Is this possible? Or is it possible to embed a youtube video player on the front page with a standard background image? Either will suffice.

3.) is it possible to widen the body pages slightly to take up more space? No problem if not, but I would prefer the pages to be a bit wider if possible.

Thanks for the great theme. You outdid yourself.

brandexponents

Hi Jonaberr,

Thank you for purchasing my theme and I am glad that you like it very much.

1. Yes it is possible to do it with a bit of custom css and I can do it for you if could kindly share your wordpress admin id and password. Please message it to me.

2. The full screen slider template does not support videos. Only the portfolio galleries support both youtube and vimeo videos. Again I can implement a customized solution for you. No extra cost. I assume you just want a full screen video and not a slider with videos and photos ?

3. No unfortunately enhancing the width is not possible. I have used a custom grid for this template and would have to adjust the shortcodes styling accordingly though most shortcodes are independent of width. Its just that the testing and any associated fixes would take atleast a few hours. The next best size to which it can be extended to is 1000px with a 940 px content and a 30px padding. Currently the content area is just 700px and we wanted to keep it that way to have more room for the background image on either sides when you consider that average screen sizes are 1370px wide or less.

Do let me know if you have any further questions and I will be happy to assist.

kind regards, Swami

Hi, I’m quite new to wordpress and I’m looking for a theme I can use for my Portfolio and I thought that yours was really great, but I was wondering if you can change the background? And are there only those colors to choose from for the settings that you have shown in the live preview?

Great theme, but support is very slow to respond. Swami did make a customization for me so that was great, but it took almost 2 weeks to get a response. If support was better, I would Rate this 5 stars.

I absolutely love this theme. One of my friends bought this theme and after seeing what she was able to do, I believed this is the theme for me. The only problem is now that I have bought and downloaded the theme, Wordpress will not install it. I am able to load it into the Wordpress installer and click “Install Now” but then after it sits for maybe a minute or two, it fails to install and asks, “Do you really want to do this?”

Hi there! I love this theme however I wanted to make sure that it does NOT use custom post types for the portfolio… Is it possible to simply use the built in wordpress categories for the portfolio?

Hi,

one question: is it possible to set up fullscreen video (self hosted?) backgrounds in the current theme version?

Kind regards.

Hi Skadoosh,

Thanks for your enquiry. Unfortunately it is not possible to use full screen videos as backgrounds.
