+1 for how nice and clean this theme is! Also; the page templates are really well structured. great work!

+1 for a wordpress version – that will kick the sales by magnitude – consider getting somebody to hook it up, I’m sure the money will be well spent.

Have a good vacation.

Not yet a buyer, but I will purchase a Wordpress Version as soon as it will be available! Looks really good!

Hello there,

Thank you for your kind words. The WordPress version is going to be released in few weeks. Stay tuned! :)

Really nice, well documented design. I have one question regarding the portfolio pages. I understand how the filter navigation works by naming the element the same as the link (in lowercase and with dashes instead of spaces). But, how does “All categories” work? How does clicking on that navigation element clear the filtering and show all elements?

My problem is when I change “All projects” to something else (“All Categories”), it no longer works. I looked in the Javascript and can’t find where “All projects” is specified.

I found it. It’s this line here in custom.js

if (button_properties == 'all-projects') {

Hello again,

If you described your problem more precisely in your first post I’d help you right away. I just thought it was a pure theoretical question. :)

Does this support .swf files in the portfolio view? Great template, thank you.

Veented

Hello,

If you mean a .swf animation opening in a lightbox gallery then that’s totally possible by default:

<a href="animation.swf?width=300&height=300" rel="gallery[gallery1]"> <img src="img/pictures/1.jpg" alt="Lightbox title goes here" /> </a>

If you want an animation to be shown directly on a portfolio page instead of the default item image, that’s possible aswell. Just make the embed element the same size as images on your portfolio page (i.e. if you have a two-columns layout, it should have a width of 411px and height of 290px. You can the other sizes in the main stylesheet file “style.css” under “6.3. Portfolio” part).

But if you want combine those two elements so a flash animation opens a lightbox gallery, it will need few additional snippets of code.

All the best,
Filip

Thanks, Yes I just wanted to showcase a few banner ads in addition to static jpegs via the lightbox or porfolio galleries. Sounds like it will work. Thanks again for all the work, the site is clean and looks great. cheers

I am looking through the WP-themes here and so far yours is my favorite.

I have one question though. When browsing images on a portfolio item – is it possible to have it done on a regular background instead of as it is now, where the site is darkened and then the images are displayed in a frame on top of that? Basically I want it the oldfashioned way instead of the modern way. :)

Best, Jeppe

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for your kind words. However, this is not a WP theme. It is a pure HTML /CSS template.

And of course, it is possible to change the lightbox gallery overlay background. You just need to add this line of code to your /css/custom.css file:

div.pp_overlay { background:#000 url(../img/backgrounds/image1.jpg) repeat top center; }

You may also want to change the opacity of the overlay background. Just open the /js/custom.js file and edit the prettyPhoto part to:

$(".gallery a[rel^='gallery']").prettyPhoto({animation_speed:'normal',theme:'pp_default',deeplinking:false,slideshow:3000,opacity: 1});

The opacity set to 1 equals a 100% visibility.

All the best,
Filip

jeppeutzon

Ah sorry. Don’t know how I mistook it for a WP-theme. Still awesome design you have, so might go for it still. :)

What I meant was: Can I avoid the lightbox and just have a normal oldfashioned image browser where you click to go to the next or previous image?

Veented

No worries and thanks. :)

According to gallery you describe. You can place a slider (like the one on a homepage) instead of a static image with a lightbox gallery on a portfolio item page. It will just need an additional line in the stylesheet so it’s size fits the template with a sidebar. Just let me know if you need any help.

I’ve never used @font_face before and I’m not sure I want to use it. How well supported is it?

If I want to just use websafe fonts, is it as simple as going to style.css and removing the @font_face rule?

Veented

Hello Hhk,

You can check the @font-face support here.

And yes, it is as simple as you mention. You will just need to adjust the font size so it looks nicely.

Hi Tauris,

Loving the template, I’ve just finished modifying it to my needs and I’ve now uploaded it to the net. I’m having a small problem with adding comments to the blog posts. The coding I have is as follows….

Hello again,

I never really used an external comment script but as I’m looking at CodeCanyon now, I’m surprised about the number of them. The one that seems interesting, easy to set-up and not high on price is Simple Website Comments.

And of course, they doesn’t look exactly as the one presented on my template but with some css customization they will.

Looking forward to get the link then! :)

All the best,
Filip

Hello once again Filip,

I have downloaded the suggested comment script and had a go at installing it, but to be honest I’m completely lost when it comes to this. I think what I’m going to do is just delete the comment option completely from all of the pages. It’s not what I’d like to do but I think it will be the easiest thing to do for me.

Many thanks once again for your help and an excellent template.

John

I might take a look at it, just send me a message through my Profile Page.

Can you tell me how to get rid of the Twitter and Facebook icons in the prettyPhoto lightbox?

Thanks.

Veented

Hello there,

Just open the /js/custom.js file, find the prettyPhoto line on the very bottom of the document and replace it with this:
$(".gallery a[rel^='gallery']").prettyPhoto({animation_speed:'normal',theme:'pp_default',deeplinking:false,slideshow:3000,opacity: 1,social_tools:false});

Hi

I am trying to put in a theme color in the custom.css file that isn’t one of the selected colors. ie the one that is closest to what I want is orange and I need to use the value of #f39501. It doesn’t seem to work when I put this value in. Could I please ask how best to achieve this?

Thanks

Fantastic job with Purity by the way. It is stunning!

Veented

Hello there,

You can do this in two way:

1. Open one of the schemes (i.e. /css/schemes/orange.css) and edit it’s value (‘orange’) to the ’#f39501’. Then link it in your html files.

2. Copy the code from one of the scheme files and paste it into your custom.css file. Then change the color value to the one you selected.

And thank you, I appreciate it. :)

All the best,
Filip

Is there anywhere else I need to enter my own information as I cant see it??

Setting up the contact form ends at changing the e-mail address to yours. :)

Hi Filip, once again I need your help.

I was wondering if it is possible to add an image description of several lines in length. I know I could modify the title for the image but I was wondering if it is possible to add a separate description.

Also the facebook like button that appears below the images doesn’t seem to like Safari.

Once again your help is greatly appreciated.

John

Veented

Hello there,

I guess that you are talking about the lightbox. Then yes, you can add a seperate description text to the image by default. Just add a ‘title=”This is a description”’ attribute to the anchor tag with a gallery, i.e.:
<a href="img/pictures/1.jpg" title="This is a description" rel="gallery[gallery1]"> <img src="img/pictures/1.jpg" alt="Image title goes here" /> </a>

Just checked the lightbox and it’s social icons on Safari, works fine for me.

Regards,
Filip

I like the design of the site, but was under the impression it was going to come with layered PSD files of the pages. That way I could insert all copy and imagery before passing the project to my programmer. Because there are no layered PSD page files, I cannot do anything with the files as a designer. I think the list of key elements was misleading.

Veented

Hello there,

A quote from the features list:

11 page elements layered PSDs for an easy customization”

By writing that, I wanted to make it as clear as possible that what is included are PSDs of the specific page elements, not whole pages.

I’m really sorry for your situation but I think it won’t be a problem, especially with this really simple design, to make your programmer get your point and set the page up.

What is the status of a WP version? Do you have an estimated date for release?

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for your interest. I started to work really hard on the WP version recently, as I have a bit more free time now, and I’m planning to release it next weekend (24, 25th of September hopefully). :)
