Is there any way I can link a “full_screen_preview” (like the gallery that opens when clicking on a grid picture) directly from a menu item in the header bar?
We have a dedicated support system where all the Pexeto items support is handled, so can you please use our support system here:
P.S. Yes, you can use the WordPress Custom Link menu option.
This is hands-down the best WordPress theme I have ever used! I bought it a while ago, and have seen various updates come down the pike… Each update makes my job easier, and is in line with many best practices I hear from seasoned WP developers. Probably the best part of this theme is that “advanced elements” can be generated through a button that’s built in to the WordPress editor. I hate shortcodes and page builders, because they are clunky and don’t transfer from theme to theme… It’s clear that the guys at Pexeto are real pros. I will definitely buy more of their themes.
Thank you so much for your so kind words and feedback – I really appreciate it! I’m very happy to hear all this and I hope you will enjoy working with the theme in the future as well!
Your Photolux theme looks great.
I’m about to buy it, but first there are some questions I need answers for some questions I have (didn’t find them in your support/FAQ site).
The website will have only 3 pages : home, about, contact.
1/ Can I use the lightbox gallery as a homepage?
2/ I want to have only 3 columns in the gallery. Is this possible? Can I use % for the width of the images (like 30%) instead of px?
Thank you for your answers
I’m glad you like the theme Here are my answers:
1) Yes, you can have a lightbox gallery as a home page
2) This would require a few CSS changes – we have created a tutorial about limiting the number of columns and centering the gallery – it should help you accomplish this type of layout.
Thank you for your reply. Another question : do you have a showcase of websites made with the Photolux theme ?
At this point we don’t have a showcase page, I’m sorry.
One final pre purchase question…
i am not able to register there in your support site as i have not purchased the theme yet. So please reply here itself.
In a grid gallery (lightbox), if only one photo is added in each portfolio item, it will show only that photo when clicked on it. But it is not possible to goto the next photo which is in another portfolio item next to it. No ‘arrows’ for that. is it possible to do like that?
To clear my question, lemme show an example…
if this is possible without much pain, am buying this next second after getting your reply.
By default the lightbox preview in the gallery is designed to show an album of images – as you mentioned, you can still use a single image per item, but there won’t be a next arrow linking to the next item, so in order to accomplish this linking between the projects, it would require applying some additional code changes.
1. Could your support team help me with that?
2. If NO, if i do it with an external programmer, would it affect the future updates in any way?
But from the theme “expression” , i can see that the projects are linked together with a navigation icon(arrow).
So i think it is not really a big deal for you guys as both “photolux” and “expression” are pexeto’s only.
I would be extremely happy to get support from the ‘Original Programmer’ itself.
The Expression’s lightbox preview works in the same way as the one in Photolux. Expression provides linking between the projects in the slider preview, however this functionality is completely different than the lightbox preview and you can’t just copy and paste its code into the lightbox code. On a different note – I was working today on the Photolux gallery and I think I figured out an easy way to implement the linking between the project items – I can’t guarantee that it will be working perfectly, but if you are intend to hire someone anyway, it might be worth trying that first (I can provide the instructions on our support site).
I need to kknow how to set the order of the portfolio items, I have tried with the default order on each post, with no luck, also installed the order portfolio plugin, but it does not order the grid gallery, how can I fix this to use this plugin?
P.S. You can use the Order field of the items to set a custom order, but you have to also select the “By Custom Order” option in the “Portfolio item order” field of the gallery page.
Pre-sales question: From looking at your sample site, I think I can do this, but I am making sure. I want to have a set of portfolios, each with a different set of images. When you click on one of the portfolios, I would like you to able to scroll through the images, and also have some text about each one. If possible, I would also like to have a Pinterest button for each gallery.
Can you please clarify your question: when you say “portfolios” do you refer to a single portfolio item in a gallery or you are referring to the entire gallery? And if you are referring to single items, when you say “scroll trough the images”, are you asking about the lightbox preview or the slider preview? Thank you
I would like a series of collections of images. I am not sure if they should be called portfolios or galleries. For example, portraits of black dogs would be one set. Horses would be another set. For scrolling through, I mean the slider preview if it can have text with it.
Thank you for the clarification. As you can see on the demo, in the slider preview there is an option to set a text in the description section of the slider before the images, however there isn’t an option to set a description to each individual image (the lightbox preview supports descriptions to each individual image). Regarding a Pinterest button – the slider preview includes a Pinterest button in the Share section that is displayed after the description of the slider (example here).
I hesitate for a moment to buy your theme …
in the next update, it is planned to have other pages?
- Gallery protected by password
- Price table
- Under Construction
- Page 404
- You can have a password protected quick gallery – you can see an example here (use “pexeto” as password). You can have this gallery in a sidebar and full-width (no sidebar) layout.
- Price table & Under construction page – you can just use a plugin for this, there are various plugins available that can provide this functionality
- 404 Page – here is an example of a 404 page
Thank you very much!!!
one very short pre purchase question: From your demo on my iPad it seems that the full width/height slideshow doesn’t support touch/swipe gestures. Is that correct? Can I enable that somehow?
Thanks for your quick reply! Is it possible to use another fullscreen slider like RoyalSlider in Photolux as an alternative?
If you would like to insert a slider from a plugin into the content of a standard page, you can insert it with the shortcode it provides and if you would like to display it to the full width of the page (without any space on the sides), you would have to embed it into the page code – I don’t have the slider, but if it provides a PHP function to insert it, you should be able to do that. I can’t really tell for sure how everything will be working as I haven’t used this slider before, it really depends on the plugin itself and it is possible to require some additional tweaks depending on how the plugin is designed to work.
I would like to buy PhotoLux Thème, but just need some clarifications before.
Is it easy to set up for a beginner ? I want to use it as a portfolio to show personnal photographies !
Waiting for your answer.
Yes, the theme is easy to setup – if you want you can watch this video to see how the gallery and its items are created with the theme. Additionally, the theme comes with a detailed documentation that includes instructions about setting every aspect of the theme.
Hi! How can i change the font type for the top menu? Sorry for posting here, but i could not find my login details for the pexeto support site, and i really need to change that font.
I can see that you have an account on our support site – if you don’t remember your password, you can use the password reset tool here, your username is the same as your ThemeForest username. So, can you please try to reset your password so you can access our support site where our support team can assist you? Thank you.
Hi! thx for the reply. No worries, i already got that one figured out
Just bought this theme, works very well on my phone, and with a swipe plug in it´s just amazingly easy to swipe thru all pics on pages. thanks!
I’m very happy to hear this – thank you very much for your feedback, it’s much appreciated!
Hello! I have photolux 2.0.1 version and i want update for 2.1.0 but I made a lot of personal settings in the current version and do not want to lose them. Please tell me which files need to be updated on FTP client to update thema and not lose the settings. Thank you.
Hi, I have a Bludomain website and would love to move to this template. I contacted their support and they have said that i need access to “Fantastico” on control panel for a quick installation and that i should ask if you support this. Thanks, Eva
As this is a WordPress theme, its only requirement is to have WordPress installed on your server so you can run the theme. What Fantastico can do for you is install WordPress automatically, however you can also follow the official WordPress installation guide here. You have to also make sure that your server meets the minimum WordPress requirements.
Very nice theme! Will you be updating to high resolution/retina ready images for those types of displays? Have you not done it because it will slow down open times? I’m trying to decide on a theme and yours is so awesome. Thank you.
I’m glad you like the theme!
All the preview image sections (e.g. lightbox preview, gallery slider preview, fullscreen slideshow) use the images in their original size, so if you upload big enough images they will look sharp on retina displays. Regarding the rest of the sections (e.g. the thumbnails) – I currently use a retina display and the images look pretty good to me, however we’ll also consider implementing such kind of functionality in the future, meanwhile you can also apply a slightly bigger crop size in the image resizing function (it will require a couple lines of code) to make the images look sharper.
Thank you for your quick reply. If I load the images in their original size, 24mb, will they load painfully slow when someone opens my site? Katie
I wouldn’t recommend using images with such a big size on the web. The answer of your question is yes, regardless if there is automatic resizing enabled or not, even with such big images it is very likely that your server won’t be able to allocate enough memory to resize the images to the thumbnail sizes. My advice is to use images that are not bigger that 1500 pixels in size on the web.
Hi, I’m deciding to buy your template but maybe I’m seeing a BUG on Browser SAFARI.
If I select GALLERIES-FULL-WIDTH SLIDE SHOW- STANDARD LAYOUT, and after I go on a page like TESTIMONIALS and after I come back to GALLERIES-FULL-WIDTH SLIDE SHOW- STANDARD LAYOUT there is a problem with the image.
Do you know it?
I have just tried this with Safari on Mac but I didn’t experience any problems. Do you experience that on a Mac or PC?
Hi pexeto, (yesterday I bought here your template from another account).
The problem is on Mac with Mavericks. If you want I can send you a print screen.
As this is a support question, can I kindly ask you to open a support ticket on our support site here:
as this is where all the Pexeto items support is handled, providing a screenshot in your ticket will be helpful too. Thank you
You support is almost no existent. I have been trying to contact you for 3 days with a problem with the template. I’ve had the template for 2 years. Now it is having problems. No one answers my requests.
I can’t see any recent support tickets from your user account on our support site and also I haven’t received any emails from you recently – are you sure that you have used the correct way to contact us? Here is a link to our support site:
