Discussion on Photik – Responsive Portfolio & Blog WordPress Theme

I purchased this theme and its looking great, the scalability works well too except for one flaw. The logo placeholder floats above the middle content so when you zoom in far enough the logo actually wraps/falls over the middle column… how can i make the logo static or fall behind the column if it does have to zoom in that way. i’m looking at the code now but thought i would ask you since you wrote it!

many thanks, love the theme.

Hi,

Thanks for compliments! I’m not sure I understand your problem. P.S. Please register at support forums for faster response.

Hi, first off, beautiful theme :)

I was just wondering if the flexslider can be configurated with some max limits. Many images I’ll use in my portfolio wont look great on very big screens if the flexslider scales them up too much.

Especially vertical images where the width should not take up the whole width of the page, because you’d have to scroll to see the whole image (fullscreen themes usually look at the height, so you dont have to scroll on non-horizontal type images).

wpbakery

With simple css fix it’s possible. We’ll help you with that over at support forums after the purchase.

Another question (more urgent)..

I dont get the posts page as homepage, even though I selected that both in the theme optionspage and the setting>reading settings.

What am I doing wrong?.. :(

wpbakery

Please be more specific. What you are trying to achieve?

Hi there!

I wanna buy your great theme, but I have one question:

Is the image in the portfolio detail page always fullscreen?

Thanks

wpbakery

By default it’s always fullscreen. But it can be overridden with small css snippet (right from theme options panel). We will help you with that after the purchase at support forums.

hi, how to remove/disable comment on page? thks

wpbakery

To remove comments from pages you should do this. While creating/editing page, scroll down to the “Discussion” section and uncheck “Allow discussion” check box. If you can’t locate “Discussion” section, then make sure it’s selected in the “Screen Options” (top right corner).

To remove comments from multiple pages at once. Go to the “Pages” and select what pages should be altered, then from “Bulk Actions” drop down menu, select “Edit” and in the new promt window, uncheck “Allow comments” and hit update.

Hi, How to disable right panel or just make the page to 2 collumn (i only need left and middle panel) or maybe how to change the content on right side panel? is in in widget?

“Right panel” is widgetsied sidebar, so its content you can control in Appearance->Widgets

Default-user

hi, wondering why my picture quality in image slider not so sharp/smooth compare to yr sample page?.. pls hv a look here: http://chak.my/home/

appreciate yr advice on this.. thks

wpbakery

Hi,

You have placed image gallery to your page and most likely you didn’t enter image size and template is using default (thumbnail) size and in your case this is to small. Try this: Edit your page and click pencil icon for your gallery content block and in “Image size” input field, enter different image size. It can be a preset like medium, large, original or custom size eg. 500×500

Bravo… problem solved.. thks for yr help.. really appreciate it. Love the theme, the best i ever purchased..

In a portfolio project, how can you add a slider above the title (as it’s done on your preview)? When I add a slider it’s displayed under the title.

Thanks!

wpbakery

Hi,

When you create portfolio post (Portfolio->Add new), scroll down to the “Options settings” section and click “Add images” button (to add images to the portfolio post). This selected images will be rotated in the slider.

Hi, I have a project using portfolio and blog. Portfolio works very well, but I can’t find the blog adress to link it at menu.

How can I link the blog as a menu item?

Thanks!

wpbakery

Hi,

Create empty static page (Pages->Add new), Name it as a Blog and then in Settings->Reading, select this page as a container for Posts.

Then add Blog page to your menu structure in Appearance->Menu

Default-user

Thank you! Problem solved =)

Greetings, is it possible that when visitors click on the portfolio picture, can I link it to a external link? Instead of going to the actual post? Thanks!

wpbakery

Hi, This isn’t possible out of the box. But with small mods you can achieve that. I’m sure our forum moderator Philip will help you our over the support forums after the purchase.

Hi, Thank you for creating a very beautiful theme!

I can’t test the demo on a super-high-res screen because I don’t own one, but I tried to zoom-out my browser and it looks like the portfolio view maxes out at 4 colums. Is this actually true on large displays or just a quirk from zooming the browser?

I would want love it to display 5 or 6 etc columns as necessary, if possible.

Thank you.

wpbakery

Hi and thank you for the nice words!

Out of the box template has a maximum of 4 items per row. But with small adjustment, you can increase that value. At support forums we have a very nice moderator Philip, who can do this thing for you on a freelance basis.

Looking forward!

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /home/papercli/public_html/new/wp-content/themes/photik/wpbakery/lib/hooks.php on line 78

Using WP 3 .3.2

Plz let me know what i did wrong, because i’m a total nobody when it come to WP-techniques.

Thank you in advance for ur reply,

Kind regards, kevin

Please make sure your are using latest WP version. Some functions were depreciated by WP core team and this is why you are seeing this message.

Hi,

I really like this design but have a question before I’d buy it.

Is it possible to embedded a video (youtube/vimeo) into the portfolio screen? Instead of a picture there is a video?

Please reply, thanks!

wpbakery

Hi, Thanks for the nice words! I’m afraid this isn’t possible out of the box.

HI! I think I want to purchase this theme. It looks great! However, I have one question. Can the background image (white) be a static image, or is it just a color-selecting matter when you get into the admin panel? I want a certain image to be in the background of whatever theme I buy. Thanks!

wpbakery

Hi,

Thanks for the interest! Yes, right from the theme options page you can change background settings. Here’s screenshot of that section from Theme Options page: https://skitch.com/mixeyfd/eubx9/photik-theme-options-photik-photo-orientated-theme-for-a-creative-person-wordpress

Another quick question! If the number of portfolio items is less than what it shows in your demo, does the page end up looking empty, or do the images for each portfolio item automatically resize? I am just starting out this year, and don’t have a huge portfolio!

wpbakery

Not sure what you mean… In my personal experience it’s better to have at least 10 portfolio entries, to make your page “pop”.

But you can be here creative. Eg. post actual portfolio entries (client by client) and then create your “sets” of favorites of grouped by thematic.

What I meant was, say I had fewer than 12 portfolio entries (like on the demo) then, would the preview images stay the same size and look tiny and empty, or would they automatically resize to fit the entire portfolio “thumnail” area? Although those are bigger than thumbs..

wpbakery

Thumbnails will remain the same size.

P.S. please reply to your own message, to keep discussion in one thread.
