This theme looks great. Before to buy it I need to know if it will answer to my functional request.

I need to use the portfolio grid, with filter, as it is, but I need that the portfolio image link redirect to a gallery page.

Actually, need to use this theme for a photographer, so the portfolio template is not adapted, but the gallery is.

Let me know if it’s possible, so to repeat.

Portfolio page will be the homepage, each portfolio with a featuring image + title, but the link has to go to the gallery template page, to visit a gallery of photo, not the portfolio.

Let me know if it’s possible with your theme.

Thanks!

Hi,

By default when you click on portfolio item you will go to portfolio single. But you can easily add option for custom link and link the item on the page you want.

Thanks for you quick answer Marcin. Before to buy I want to be sure that it will be simple and effective. —> With an easy modification, my customer will be able each time than he create a portfolio, to link it to a gallery page? It will be manageable from the admin part, like for example by having a field called Gallery Link? Then when the visitor will click to the portfolio (title or image), he will be redirected to the gallery page (that of course will have to be created first right? The portfolio page is perfect, the gallery page is good too (with less column but you wrote that we can set up to 3 or 4 columns), this is just about link them together.

Thanks!

Sorry Maarcin, not Marcin ;)

Right now it goes to portfolio single page. You can easily add an input field in portfolio custom post type where you add a link to whatever page you want. It can be done like in portfolio single page e.g. here http://themesymphony.com/themes/practicalwp/portfolio/we-like-sweets/ you don’t have a button, because there is no link in the input field in the portfolio settings and here http://themesymphony.com/themes/practicalwp/portfolio/buck-bunny/ you have a button. It’s the same thing, it should take less than 5 min, to add another field and add if statement for portfolio item. I can help you with that if you buy this theme. It won’t take more than 5 min :)

One more time, thanks for reactivity. Actually, i see that my question was not clear.

I saw that we can go from portfolio single page to -> any other page, including gallery or anything we want.

So the way will be: PORTFOLIO FILTERABLE 3 COLUMNS —> Portfolio Single --> Gallery Page to see the photos organized as collection (without text etc.)

However, what I need is a direct link without going to the portfolio single, that become a useless page for a photographer (but useful for a designer, to explain process, details etc.).

So it should be: PORTFOLIO FILTERABLE 3 COLUMNS—> Gallery Page

Without going to the portfolio single.

To reword it, I need to have a portfolio single page that is a gallery page, with lightboox, like you present it when we click to gallery :).

So, is it possible? :)

maarcin

I understood your question. Yes, it’s possible. I just threw button on portfolio single as an example of how this field will work. You could direct, by clicking in the portfolio filterable 3 col, wherever you want. Right now it’s portfolio single, but you can easily choose to redirect e.g. to google or themeforest.

hi, i purchase this theme, i have a question how to have a Home ICON instead of title “Home page” in main menu? like in the demo (the home page is just a BIG ICON. How have that in my menu?

maarcin

Hi,

You have to add ‘homepage-icon’ as a class. You can read more in the documentation.

Hey Maarcin. First off, beautiful theme! In the filterable portfolio, I would like to change the filter menu dropdown to the one from Clockwork. Is this possible? Many thanks! Jeff

maarcin

Hi Jeff,

yes, it is possible, but it needs restyling and changing the place for filter itself, because it probably won’t fit in the title area anymore.

Hi Maarcin My site looks amazing except on an ipad in landscape format. The white menu bar doubles in height. The theme demo also appears the same way. It looks the same as the 768px version in this tester: http://www.studiopress.com/responsive/ Hopefully it’s a small bit of code that can be updated! Thank you, Jeff

Hey, nice theme. We are customizing it a little and need an info: How can we change the green from the “mt-message mt-green” box? Tried to change it in the color.css but it wont change! Greetings from Germany!

maarcin

Hi,

you can add !important rule after css or, since shortcodes are in plugin, go to your plugin folder on ftp and find shortcodes/shortcodes.css file and change it there.

Hello. Great template. Just wondering if there was any plans to add WooCommerce integration into this template? Thanks

maarcin

Hi,

thanks :)

Nope, no plans for that.

Best
Marcin

DanielWoolnough

Okay. Well, WooCommerce doesn’t work properly as is doesnt appear within the content box. MarketPress (WP-Commerce) on the other hand works perfectly.

maarcin

Well, it’s probably styling issue, but this theme wasn’t created with WooCommerce or any other commerce plugin in mind, so I haven’t tested it.

Hi Marcin

Thanks for your awesome theme, it is worth every penny. But I have a trouble with it.

I set up my site that my front page is latest posts, and when I view it, there is no tittle on it, take a look: http://new.aberdeenphoto.eu/

I need my blog to me home page, not static page, so this is very important to me.

maarcin

Hi,

you can just create ‘Blog’ page with default template and put it as a homepage in settings -> reading.

Thanks, but this didn’t help, I still have front page without a title.

I created Blog page, and in settings I set it up Front page displays as a “Post page”.

I also tried choosing option Front page display as “Your latest posts”.

Any other thought ? Please, help me, as I have to have blog posts on front page, and such empty title looks very unprofessional. This holds me off from publishing new theme.

maarcin

Drop me email with wp admin details and I will look into it.

Hi, Do you have to have the orange icons on every single box (like on homepage) or can they be removed in the theme settings?

Hi,

they can be removed manually, but it’s really simple, I can help you with that when you buy this theme.

Hi Marcin, I have a question about the size of the logo and the big orange icons. What is the maximum size for the custom logo? Is it possible to make the big orange icons just square? Best Regards Frank

maarcin

Hi,

For width it’s about 220px, but you can easily change this if you need to. Height doesn’t matter.

If you mean about icons in ‘fresh design’, ‘customizable’ etc then sure, it’s just css so it can be easily tweaked to what you need.

Hi! First I have to say that this is a great looking theme!

But…. its a real petty that portrait photos is not cropped when you use the WP-gallery. Makes the theme useless for me as a photographer :( I need them to look great and crisp to attract customers. Anyway around that?

maarcin

Hi,

thanks :)

You can change the size of gallery photos to what you need by editing some css and one function that crops images. But you have to know that this will apply to all images in the gallery.

Found a way around… re-submitted all my pictures to WP and after that everything looks great!

Thx for your quick respond!

Next time you can use plugin called ‘Regenrate thumbnails’. It will save you a lot of time.

Hey mate… i bought your theme – nice job on the design and functionality

a few notes for your “to do list” 1. single-portfolio : turn text string to translatble strings (u missed some) This is true accross the theme, so.. i would take a fast look and fix that. much nicer to get a translatble theme.

2. To prevent issuse with filtering /isotope you simply need to change in line 123 in file template-portfolio-filter to ”$term->slug” instead of ”$term->name” (had to fix this for a hebrew website)

3. i have added “allAttchments” option to the portfolio part of the theme which pulls all the images from a specific single portfolio item generates a slider using nivo… that way i dont need to manage multiple sliders which saves a lot of space.. that was easy to do (if you want the code just PM me..)

Hope this helps anyone (especially number 2)

maarcin

Hi Sagive,

1 and 2 are done since couple of days, but I just want to check them out, to be sure everything is ok and I don’t have much time, because I’m finishing another theme right now. But update should be online in a couple of days.

3. I thought about that options, but I resigned from it.

Thanks anyway for info, it’s always helpful to get that kind of feedback :)

I am having an issue with saving my theme options. When I click save theme options I am getting a {Error} prompt in the middle of the screen. Any suggestions?

Hi,

change permission for css/options/css file for 775 or 777. Some servers block standard 644 value.

Did that I actually read that after posting here. That did work for me I actually have an additional question regarding sliders. When looking at the demo I noticed a gallery on the project level elements. Do you use an additional gallery app for that or the main slider? If it is the main slider do you have any idea what the settings should be to make it look the same?

maarcin

Every project has standard Flexslider (‘Slides’ custom post type) and those are default settings from there, I haven’t change them.
