Hi there

I very much like the theme. One pre-purchase question pls.

Can I hide the left side navigation and logo? I only need a portfolio page like you have in your demo under /photik/ that can be filtered by categories. No need for any other navigation, links, logo etc.

Can that be done?

In case it can be done – the portfolio needs 5 columns to fill the space or the 4 columns need to be larger / wider to fill the space. Possible?

See screenshot here pls: http://awesomescreenshot.com/042g4pf11

Thank you

Hi,

Thank you for the nice comment! This isn’t possible right out of the box. But this is something that can be done, with small css + js mods. Over at support forums, we are helping users to make small adjustments. Other (more complex mods), Philip (moderator at supports forums) is doing as a freelance geeks.

NurSharina

Okay thank you for the swift reply.

Then this is a “small css + js mod” that does not require a freelancer, right?

mixey

Yeap. Removing the menu and extending thumbnails to fill whole screen is really a small fix.

NurSharina

Okay great.

Then I get the theme, register to your forum and like to know what I need to change to achieve how I like the theme to work.

Count on you to deliver!

Sorry about that. I just sent you an email with password.

Thank you.

Question with reference to these comments here are already posted in your forum. Looking forward to receive the hint on how to tweak the css and js.

Hey, nice theme, I like it very much. One question: Where can I disable the slideshow-autoplay? If you have a slideshow-gallery in one post including pictures with different heights, it is a bit annoying reading the posts below and the text is moving up and down… I changed the parameters in the jquery.flexslider.js from slideshow: true to false but nothing changed…

Thanks for help,

Florian

mixey

Change default value in “Theme Options -> Portfolio -> Image Slider interval”

Ok, found it myself. It’s the change of slideshow = true to false in the js_composer_front.js

Cheers,

Hi,

Very nice theme you got there, clean and simple.

Im about to purchase this theme :)

mixey

Thanks! I’m really glad you liked it!

When will the filter be available. That is the only reason why I am not purchasing this theme yet!

mixey

Sorry, we are on fire now. You are talking about sortable portfolio section, right?

Default-user

Yes. But what do you mean you are on fire? Really busy?

mixey

Yes, we are extremely busy this days. We are preparing some awesome products.

Dear,

I was wondering if it is possible to update to the current version of Photik without losing the layout and template files. I’d also like to know what is the best way for a good update.

Thanks in advance and for the great theme!

Go to appearance – themes and activate the default WordPress theme. Delete the theme in question and upload the new version you will have to download from ThemeForest. The process is the same as the first installation and you will not loose saved settings.

If you have modified .php template files manually, then you’ll lose this changes with update.

Try this: go to the Settings->Permalinks and hit save button. This will regenerate permalinks structure.

hi mixey

everything works fine…very nice theme…

on home page or portfolio page can i have a random thumbs view?

in theme options > portfolio i checked for

- Portfolio page posts order > random

and

- Thumbnails order > random

but the thumbs order is for date

“Portfolio page posts order > random” this affects thumbnails, that are placed under the content in the single portfolio view page.

To randomize portfolio posts on the archive page page, you’ll need to modify template files a bit. Please use our support forums to get help with this question: http://support.wpbakery.com

Hi,

I really like your template. Before I buy it, I have a few questions :

- Is it possible to have a Home page with a fullscreen Youtube video next to the Menu sidebar ? - Is it possible to take off the “client” and “date” info in the portfolio single page ? just have title and description… - In the pages like “About me”, is it possible to remove the right sidebar with widgets ? I guess you can choose to add widgets on the right or not, like in the Contact page, that does not have any widget on the right…

Thanks in advance

Hi,

1. I’m afraid, but no.

2. Yes, you can do that with small template mod. At our support forums you can get a help with this.

3. yes you can do that. You should use “Full width” template to remove sidebar.

Hello, this is a lovely clean theme, and I am liking how it is looking. I have a couple of questions. I was wondering how to change the stock images that come with the photik theme to my own pictures? Also am I able to set the home portfolio to display just one large image that fills the remainder of the screen after the menu rather than multiple? Thank-you for your time

Hi,

Please use support forums for support related questions. http://support.wpbakery.com

To change default images, you should visit your portfolio posts and set featured image. Here’s how you can do that: http://wpbakery.com/learning/item/how-to-set-a-featured-image-in-wordpress/

Hi after looking at hundreds of themes, I keep coming back to this one – it’s beautiful! Just one question though – I do a lot of podcasts. I notice there’s video support, is there a way to embed soundcloud or libsyn files or any other mp3 files? Or is there a widget that you’d recommend?

Thank you

Hi,

This theme doesn’t support audio embeds. Only youtube/vimeo. But I’ve seen plugin for WP which adds audio player to the post’s excerpts and single views. I believe it can help you. p.s. sorry, don’t know its name.

Do you have examples of the different post types? Also i noticed there isn’t any ability to do filtering, is that correct?

mixey
mixey Author

Hi,

Photik comes with: page, post and portfolio content types. Also blog (posts) have multiple posts formats, you can check them here: http://demo.wpbakery.com/photik/blog/

P.S. you are right, portfolio doesn’t have filtering.

Hi,

Just a quick question, I’m looking for a good minimal responsive template without any animation. Is it possible to disable the portfolio loading animation and eye catching mouse hover effect in your theme?

Thanks, R

mixey
mixey Author

Hi,

Yes you can disable hover animation right from the theme’s options menu. But in single portfolio view it will “fade” in after loading (this is how flexslider works).

nice work here. i have a few questions. i saw somebody ask a question about the possibilities of having the navigation menu on the left move out of the way so:

1) is it possible to add a button somewhere on the left side to have the navigation menu dynamically slide in and out of frame?

2) in terms of transitions between pages (for example, “portfolio” to “blog”), is it possible to add a fade in/out, slide, or any animation so that it’s more seamless? rather than just a hard refresh? i like how if you click the portfolio button from another page, you have empty boxes and the images slide into place.

3) in the single portfolio entries, i read that the images should ideally be 1200×900. exploring the alternative, is it possible to have a 16×9 image (like a video) rather than 4:3 or is this locked in somehow?

4) on the blog entries, is it possible to have the blog column (middle) wider and the aside column (widgets) thinner or eliminated completely?

mixey
mixey Author

Hi,

1) Not out of the box, some tweaks are required.

2) Again, this isn’t in the theme, so you’ll need to add some code to achieve that.

3) 1200×900 is something that I found working best. You can use any image sizes you want. Flexslider will take them and resizes to fill whole slider width and height will be calculated proportionally.

4) Again, you can tweak that with css :)

Hello:

I have two questions.

1) It’s been a while buy the version 1.0.0 and today I realized that out new versions of updates. My question is whether these updates are free or should I get the template again.

2) it is possible to make the images do not occupy the entire width of the screen? For example, Mac 21 “or 27” loses much image quality. Is this possible? Probe into creating great images not to lose definition in different screens but the same thing happens. Is there any solution???

Thank you very much.

regards

Hi,

Updates a free of charge, you can re-download template from your account (profile->downloads) section.

2. Please open support request at support forums, I’m pretty sure Philip can come up with a small css snippet for you.
