I have purchased your theme. Very nice. Have a couple of issues. 1. The documentation refers to a ‘Portfolio’ in the Dashboard , then refers to a ,’ Gallery’ later. 2. I don’t see an option in setting up the gallery to add images as per the documentation.

Am I reading it wrong? I am using Wordpress 3.5

many thanks Ben

WPExplorer

I must have made a typo since most my themes have a “portfolio” it should of course say Gallery.

It’s really easy to add images to a gallery. Literally you just open up the gallery post editor and then upload images. Anything under the new WP 3.5 media manager labeled “Uploaded to this post” will be shown automatically.

I’ll update my docs right now for WP 3.5 since the screenshots are out of date and add a message to install the recommended plugin.

If you check out the docs I recommend the following plugin – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gallery-metabox/ – that plugin makes it more intuitive for people not so experienced with WordPress attachments and I highly recommend it ;)

Thanks for the purchase Ben, I’ll try and push out the update today!

Hi. I have a pre-purchase question. I love the design of the home page with the scrolling images. Does this theme allow any content to be placed below the slider, like blog posts?

WPExplorer

Hi.

Not by default. This would require you updating the homepage template. You could show the blog page on the homepage instead though if you prefer.

Default-user

When you say “updating the homepage template”, do you mean modifying code or can I do this with the built in theme admin?

WPExplorer

I mean you will have to edit the template files to include whatever you want added. The default homepage is either an image scroller or a masonry.

Hi! Love the theme! Working great, two quick questions:

1. I’d love to remove the date above the about pop up on bottom.

2. Can I make the scroller height taller? perhaps 700px or 800?

Thanks daviduzzardi.com

WPExplorer

Hi David,

1. You could do so with CSS, such as adding the following to the bottom of style.css:

#single-gallery-info #date{ display: none !important; }

2. This would require a few changes. First you need to edit functions/img_defaults.php – see lines 35-37. This is where you change the scroller image cropping sizes. Next in style.css you’ll want to change the height values for the #scroller-wrap and the .scroller-entry-img a heights to match your new custom heights.

Best of luck & thanks for the purchase!

Hi there, I just started setting up a site for a client using your template and just am wondering about the “Homepage- Single Gallery”. I used that template for a page (seen here: http://teamcoding.ca/charlotte/photography/) and although it renders properly, I can’t seem to click the photos to achieve the lightbox pop-up, and was just wondering how I could go about correcting this?

Thanks a lot! (ps. just in case you were wondering, I’m just using the theme’s logo as temporary filler until I design a new one.)

WPExplorer

Actually on that specific template I’ve disabled the lightbox since most people didn’t want it, they just wanted a simple scroller/masonry of photos.

Adding the lightbox is easy though. You’d need to change lines 50 and 75 in templates/template-home-single.php to look more like this:

<a href="<?php echo wp_get_attachment_url( $wpex_gallery_single_attachment->ID ); ?>" class="view" rel="gallery">
<img src="<?php echo $wpex_gallery_entry_img; ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />
</a>

Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Pre-sale questions please: Is it responsive? Can I upload my own fonts? Can I play music? What about individual music on each portfolio page? (I don’t want the same music to play on my baby section as my men’s section of photos). Can I change the colors/fonts/backgrounds in each section? Is there an easy photo sort and drag feature within the portfolios? Right click protect? Can I bulk/mass upload my images? Because the images open up full-screen, will they adapt to smaller devices or will the images be cropped? Thanks!

WPExplorer

Hi there,

1. It isn’t responsive. As the theme page describes it’s Mobile Ready.

2. Not sure what you mean. You can upload your own fonts to your server and then change the CSS in the theme to use them. Being able to “upload” custom fonts isn’t something that should ever be added to a theme. There are plugins out there for this though if you aren’t a coder.

3. Music. I didn’t add music to this one as you can see from the demo and features list. There might be a plugin you can download to use for this. But personally I avoided it because that is something that went out of style in the 90’s.

4. You can change the colors of anything via CSS granted you know how. There aren’t built-in options for this. There are several skins included.

5. The photos work with the default WordPress functions, which has a drag-drop function for re-arranging photos. See the video demonstrations.

6. Right click protect – plenty plugins out there for that. Although it’s pretty useless in my opinion since you don’t need to right click in order to get an image from a site.

7. Bulk upload – yes and no. You bulk upload for each gallery. See video on how the theme works in the description.

8. They will adapt, since I use a responsive lightbox. But you can always test it yourself on your mobile device ;)

Hope this helps, thanks for the interest!

Hi. Thanks so much for the guidance earlier! One more quick question. Is it possible to bring up widgets such as (categories) and (recent posts) only when the viewer is in the blog section? and have them not there when viewing my homepage and galleries.

Thanks again and am really happy with PhotoPro!

Best, Dave daviduzzardi.com

WPExplorer

You can try using a plugin such as WooSidebars for this (it’s free). There are other sidebar manager plugins on WP.org as well if you don’t like this one.

Is there support for Vimeo video?

WPExplorer

Not in the galleries. The galleries are exclusively for photos. In order to support external videos you wouldn’t be able to use the built-in WP functions and it would require some massive changes.

Hey buddy, Tried a little recoding as seen here on the (templates/template-home-single.php) Select theme to edit: : Get resize and show featured image : refer to functions/img_defaults.php for default values a href=”<?php echo wp_get_attachment_url( $wpex_gallery_single_attachment->ID ); ?” class=”view” rel=”gallery”>’scroller_entry_height’ ), wpex_img( ‘scroller_entry_crop’ ) ); if($wpex_gallery_entry_img

You will be able to see the code I replaced but really need to get the original piece of code back in place? Any help again will be hugely appeciated!! Thanks.

Really not quite sure what you are talking about…

You can always re-download the theme for free to take a look at the original code.

So simple! Arghh!!! Thanks again! :) Loving working with this theme… just rated 5 stars! :) Two quick questions then I’m out your hair! 1) Can I make the home page gallery a random order rather than the order I created the galleries? 2) Can i exclude certain galleries from the home page or create a home page category to only display the image with in that category? Thanks again :) www.robertmichaelwilson.com

WPExplorer

Great!

1. Yes, open your homepage template in templates/template-home.php – scroll to line 31 and add a new orderby parameter to the array like such:

'orderby' => 'rand',

Full code:

//get post type ==> photos
    $args = array(
           'orderby' => 'rand',
         'post_type' => array( 'galleries' ),
        'posts_per_page' => $data['home_photos_count'],
        'suppress_filters' => false, //WPML support
        'paged' => $paged
    );

2. You can also add an “exclude” parameter and enter the ID’s of the galleries to exclude separated by a comma.

'exclude' => 'YOUR GALLERY ID's TO EXCLUDE'

full code

//get post type ==> photos
    $args = array(
        'orderby' => 'rand',
          'exclude' => 'YOUR GALLERY ID's TO EXCLUDE',
         'post_type' => array( 'galleries' ),
        'posts_per_page' => $data['home_photos_count'],
        'suppress_filters' => false, //WPML support
        'paged' => $paged

Hello,

Love the theme and all, but I got one thing that is on my mind and the only thing holding me back from jumping on this amazing theme.

On the homepage if the slider is enabled is there anyway to stretch the photos out to fit the whole page?

Thanks so much! Nick

WPExplorer

You mean so it would scroll through photos and they would be full-screen? It’s possible but would require some major edits on your part.

I opted against larger photos because in order to preserve quality you would need massive images. I work on a 30”” monitor, and to load multiple high-def images that would fill the screen would be horrible for site loading speed.

Default-user

An example would be – http://preview.virb.com/img/york/york-1.jpg

Yeah I’m glad you thought about that, as I honestly just think looks (which looks good, but when loading looks terrible).

WPExplorer

So you mean make the images taller? I’m not really understanding since that looks very similar to what the theme already looks like.

Hi,

first of all, I really love your theme!

1. Im sorry if you answered it before, but I couldn’t find it. Is there a way to hide/delete the “single-gallery-info” ? [ I just want the Photos shown without any information and buttons (About;Galleries). Navigation should happen only in the (fixed) menu sidebar.]

2. There’s an issue I have and I can’t really figure out what happens and why.

When I’m opening a single Gallery (like this one: http://amdigital.de/cms/gallery/dennis/) the last image in the scroller skips into the “next line”... Since i tested it on other devices and browser, I could figure out that this only happens in Chrome but not on every device. Here’s two Screenshots of what it looks like when it happens:

http://amdigital.de/cms/bilder/a.png (The black Bar is the last image) http://amdigital.de/cms/bilder/b.png

It also seems to happen only if there are high size and horizontal format photos in the gallery. When I add a Gallery containing ONLY horizintal format photos it seems to work fine.

I hope you can tell me why this happens. AND I hope I’m not beein’ too stupid right now.

Best regards and thanks in advance, Alex

WPExplorer

1. Pretty easy. You can hide via CSS using display: none; or you can delete the code in single-galleries.php lines 30-111 – its commented out so should be easy to distinguish.

2. I’m not seeing this issue in my live demo do you? The link on your site goes to a 404 so i can’t verify on your site if there is a code conflict with a plugin

Thanks for the purchase Alex!

Default-user

Oh, Excuse me… I can’t edit my post, so if you would just remove the “)” at the end of the Link, it should work. Sorry, my fault!

WPExplorer

Oh yes, sorry I should have noticed ;)

I’m not seeing the issue on your site either. I’ve checked in IE, FF and Chrome – mac and pc. Have you been able to look maybe on another computer? It’s possible a chrome extension on something on your end is causing it maybe.

Also, are you on the latest version of the browser?

Default-user

I’m havin this issue on my Macbook and it happens on the iMac of a friend. Never happend on a PC and both times it happened it was chrome. I’ve tried everything now… Update Browser, JS, etc. and I don’t have any Plugins or Extensions installed in Chrome.

I’m sure it’s a Problem on my side and I think I’ll find out! Just hoped you’ld say something like “Oh, I know that! It’s caused by XY” :)

Hiding the Gallery Info worked fine!

Thanks for your amazing Support! You’re great!

WPExplorer

Ya, sorry i’m not seeing it on the macbook pro. Asked my gf to take a look on her mac as well and still nothing. Let me know if you figure out the issue!

Default-user

Fixed it.

When I edit the padding of the images in the scroller to 4px it works just fine… No Idea whats the matter with the issue but thats my (maybe dirty) tweak for now.

*EDIT: Didn’t work… Worked while live editing. As soon as I edited the CSS and reloaded, same Issue with 4px Padding. Sorry.

WPExplorer

Cool stuff ;) Glad its working now!

Was there a DEMO file I need to load? I can’t seem to find it?

WPExplorer

I didn’t include a sample data file with this theme. Since it’s a gallery based theme, if you uploaded a sample data you’d spend more time removing all the sample images then you would just adding your content from scratch ;)

I can send you a .xml if you want it – contact via my profile page. But I suggest you have a look at the video guides as I think it would be easier to just start adding your own photos:

Hi great theme! One quick question, is there any chance to insert a custom link on a gallery featured image? Thanks!

WPExplorer

You mean so you can link a gallery to another page instead of going to the gallery?

There isn’t any option built-in. It is possible to override the URL via a custom field or meta option. But this is a customization you’ll need to do since I’m not available atm for freelance.

If it’s only 1 or a few you could just do a simple 301 redirect of the gallery ;)

Default-user

=D I thought of the same 301 redirects because it´s just like 3 redirects and I think that it’s easier than debug the code, but thanks

Hey there! I’m about o buy your template for my clients… But I have a question! There is any chance to have the site in 2 different color themes? The site will be about photography and videos, and the idea is that the photography section will be in white layout and video section in black layout! Is this possible? Plus, I read there is a kind of “mobile optimization” but I am in my iPhone right now and I don’t see any optimization jejeje or maybe is not online on the “demo theme”?

Thanks a lot! :) Nicole

WPExplorer

Nicole,

1. It would be possible if you edit your theme a bit. The default color is light. To make the dark version the theme loads the file at css/black.css as well. Currently there is a check from the theme panel to see if user has the dark version selected. You could alter the PHP to instead check what page the visitor is on. The edits would be done in scripts.php – but it’s a customization you’ll need to make.

2. The theme uses an is_mobile() function to test if a user is on a mobile device. There isn’t any way to disable that actually via theme options. I’ve double checked and it’s working fine one my iPhone, it should look completely different then the desktop version – no scrollers, just a list of the photos.

nicolecurioni

Thanks for your fast ansewer! I know i need to modify the .PHP (for the color theme change) but, could you provide me the part of code to change? ‘cause i’m not really expert on PHP… :(

Thanks again WPExplorer!

Hey! Just got the theme installed and sorted out (nearly!) one thing is getting me confused though, is there a way to stop the slider from ‘sliding’ on the home page. I’d like it so that you can just scroll, similar to your home page on the preview, but that either can be scrolled, or if there isnt many images, doesnt scroll? Cheers!

WPExplorer

Hey there,

Thanks for the purchase, glad you’ve got it all working!

The homepage on the preview has auto scroll enabled. However, if you look at the FAQ – http://themeforest.net/item/photopro-photography-wordpress-theme/3272300/faqs – you can see an explanation on how to stop auto scrolling – it does require editing template files.

Hey there! Thank you so much for this theme. Well worth the dollars spent. My client is concerned that on pages using the slider gallery (not sure if it happens on other gallery types) that the colors on the photos are “tweaked” and don’t look like the original photo. When you click on the photo, the lightbox photo that pops up has accurate coloring.

Best examples are the woman in the white shirt on the grass, the red head on white background and worst of all the man in the first image on this page: http://lgrossi.com/gallery/fashion/

The colors are very distinguishable. How could I go about removing what seems to be an overlay of some kind so that the true colors of the images can be seen?

Thanks again!

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Glad you like the theme ;)

Unfortunately the issue with the image isn’t theme related. WordPress by default compresses jpegs on upload. You can test for your self, log into WordPress and re-upload the image, you’ll see as soon as it’s uploaded the quality is lost. I urge you to try so you can see. Nothing you can do from the theme’s perspective.

I tested the same image with an optimized png version so you could see:

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/photopro/files/2013/01/jpeg-vs-png.png

Looking at the jpeg also, from the site, it’s really massive at 5,000px + wide while the file size is really small at around 1mb. I’m not an expert in photography, but this could probably also have an effect. Probably a higher quality jpeg might keep its true color?

Default-user

I probably knew that…yep…I should have known that. :)

Thank you for this!

One more thing – where in the code does the copyright get set ONLY on pages? I’d like the copyright to show up on the Gallery pages as well.

WPExplorer

The copyright should be on the single galleries as well, but the sidebar slides out for these so they are full-screen. If you want it always visible I have some description in the theme “FAQ” (see above) that could help you set the sidebar always visible (this is a general guide, but clearly more css is likely needed)

Default-user

Ah, I think that’s the problem. I used the CSS from the FAQ to make the sidebar always visible. When I remove the code from the FAQ (rendering the sidebar minimized) the copyright info is there. Will tinker around with this a bit.

Default-user

Ok. When I remove

#left_content_toggle { display: none!important; }

It shows the toggle button. When I click the toggle button, the copyright shows up. So basically, it needs to load activated to show the copyright information.

Any idea how to do that? While I try to tear apart things to figure it out on my own :)

WPExplorer

Ok

See style.css line 93:

.single-galleries #copyright {
    display: none;
}
Default-user

Fantastic! Thank you!

Hi, Great theme, I almost complete my website but I still need to tune some last details that I can’t seem to find in the comments. I’d like to tell the home page to show only the featured image of the gallery witch has been tagged with a certain type of gallery categorie. Not sur i’m clear… Second thing, I’ve tried to put an embed you tube video link in the html section of a plain gallery type, but it didn’t seems to work. How can I do that ? And last, this one is a long shot, would the last method work to include a unity web player directly into the body of a plain gallery type ?

thanks for that very elegant them

cheers

WPExplorer

1. If you want to show only a specific category of galleries on the homepage you’d have to modify the homepage template loop with a tax_query. Normally I don’t handle customization requests, but this one is fairly simple if you open a ticket at wpthemhelp.com I might be able to send you the code for this when I get through other theme related tickets.

2. The video should work just fine. I’d have to take a look to see why it might not be working. Did you paste your code in HTML mode while in the editor?

3. Not sure, I have no experience with Unity Web Player. You’ll have to test to see.

Thank you for the purchase!

Yep I put the code into the html frame, something like that : <iframe width=”560” height=”315” src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/hStyR-cVzYU?list=UUGvA5CWUKwpKdD_LvQ16SUQ” frameborder=”0” allowfullscreen></iframe> and it just leaves an empty space where the video should be.

Hi,

Hi Jeemie,

The way it works is actually the home template is just like a gallery. So you would upload the images you want on the homepage to the homepage (just like a gallery) and those will be shown on the front end.

thanks for the purchase!

thx :) just one more question, how i can remove the “about” and “galleries” in every gallery page ?

and also the read more button in blog page :)

1. Edit single-galleries.php and remove all from lines 26-113

2. Edit includes loop-entry.php and remove line 35
