Discussion on Purity: Responsive, Clean, Minimal & Bold WP Theme

Hello

I have a question about the portfolios. Does the theme allow multiple portfolios to be used?

For example we are using the portfolio to to showcase other things. So one page would be ‘things to do’ and another page would be ‘beaches’ and another page would be ‘towns & villages’. Each of those would have their own category and the portfolio page shows only one category.

Please let me know Thanks!

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the interest! :)

As for your question – absolutely, you may create as many portfolio pages with different set of posts and categories on each of them. :)

Hi, I purchased your Purity theme on 6/17 & have tried registering for your support. I am not receiving an email with a password. The screen message states “A password will be e-mailed to you.” Can you please help me with this issue. I’ve tried 5 times at least. Thanks.

Hello there,

Please drop me a private message on prafgon@gmail.com with the username you have registered the account under and I’ll reset the password for you manually. :)

Hi. Question about the footer Widget area. I have it set up for 3 columns. But Im trying to figure out a way to stack widgets in each respective column. Or am I only allowed one widget per column with the first widget being the left, the second the center, and the third the right?

I have some Twitter and other social media widgets Id like to all put in the same column.

Veented

Hello there,

I’m truly sorry but there is only one widget per column allowed as for now. It is of course possible to increase that value but will require some extra modification of the theme’s code. :)

Filip

hi there,

probably you have all ready answer this but… is over this theme the possibility to build more than one portfolio page???

Veented

Hi there,

But of course! You may create as many portfolio pages as you only need, with different set of posts and categories on each of them. :)

Hey Filip,

Quick question about updating a theme in WP.

My client kjarchitect.com wants to know if it’s ok to update the theme when he’s doing his other wordpress updates. So far he has not updated the theme because of the warnings having to do with customized. All the customization I did was to a child theme. I’m assuming it will be ok and nothing will break if he says “yes” to updating the theme, but wanted to check with you to absolutely certain.

Thanks so very much. Judith

p.s Do you have any new themes in the past year? I’m looking for something for another client and I love your work.

Veented

Hello Judith,

If all the changes you made were made in the child theme then the update of the main theme will not break anything. However, it’s always the best practice to backup the current files so you can easily switch back if anything would go wrong. :)

And thank you for the kind words! We’ve recently released a new theme Renown and working on a new theme (One Pager) to be released in two weeks so stay tuned. ;)

Filip

Thanks, Filip. I don’t know how to back the current files. Where can I find information on that? And very excited about your new Renown theme!

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the kind words! :)

To backup the files, you will need to connect to your server/host via an FTP client like FileZilla. You can get find the login credentials in your hosting admin panel. :)

Hello Filip,

I need some help with finding out why no thumbnail pictures appear on the portfolio page of my WordPress installation using the theme “Purity”. In addition to that, the category sorting does not seem to function also (on the same page).

I found no way of opening a ticket on Veented’s page, hence I am contacting you here. :-)

Thank you, Anastasios

Veented

Hello Anastasios,

That’s really odd. Can you please open a topic on our Support Forums including the specific pages URL so we can further investigate? :)

Great, I just opened a topic over there. Thanks

Hi there! I just upgraded to Purity 3.0, and updated WP, and the front page of our site has changed. The logo for the site has been removed, the font styling has changed and the word ‘Blog’ has appeared at the top of the site:

http://londonontarioautosales.com

In spite of resetting and trying different ways to make it go away, nothing is changing. Could you give me some advice?

Thank you!

I just posted this on you forum site to make sure I was following protocol. Thanks.

I can’t unzip the theme on Windows 7 because the file path is too long. I’m trying to do an upgrade so didn’t want to upload as zip.

Veented

Hello there,

Which exact file you can’t unzip? Is it the “All Files & documentation” or “Installable files only” package?

Regards,
Filip

It is the main theme zip file but also the package. I deleted the live theme and uploaded as zip to get around it so all working now.

Hello,

I’ve got an issue with the plugin Polylang on my Purity theme. I can select different languages and the content in the page changes but the menu always stays in one language.

Link to my website: www.neupap.fr

Would it be possible to disable the Ajax to tackle this issue?

Thank you Bap

Hello Bap,

That’s odd. Can you please drop me an e-mail on prafgon@gmail.com with more details about the issue? Thank you.

Hi,

Trying to upgrade from version 1.X to 3.X and am very unhappy at the moment, mostly because I thought the change would just take a couple of minutes and not all day.

My two major gripes are the changed fonts (in my view, a theme by the same name should retain the same looks over different updates) and the new gallery system – unlike what the documentation says, my portfolio pages don’t offer the option for a static image, and I simply fail to understand why I already have a gallery page, and now all the portfolio pages offer me is to create even more galleries (?).

Anyway, that is just for feedback – after going through the version changes, it seems like Version #2 is just what I need (my reason for the upgrade is that I am having issues with timthumb). Would you have a download link for me?

Thanks in advance!

Veented

Hello there,

I’m sorry for all the trouble. And sure, we still have the 2.3 version in our archives. Please send me a private message on prafgon@gmail.com and I’ll be glad to provide it to you. :)

Hello, supports your theme an extended footer menu? Thanks

Edit: Sorry, found it. Yes, it does.

Veented

Hello there,

Of course it does! I’m glad you found it. And thank you for the interest. :)

Default-user

Thank you. I have another question: My customer wants additional fields in the contact form (eg “Please call me back”). Is that possible with purity or do I need extra plugins like contact form 7?

Veented

Hello again,

That will require the Contact Form 7 plugin but the theme fully supports styling for it. :)

Hi again,

Please make sure that you have the latest theme version installed and that after update you click the “Update Panel” button. :)

Hi

I am using purity theme 3.0 with latest version of wordpress 3.9.2. I am not able to insert shortcode on page using shortcode icon on page editor. I can see the popup display of shortcode when i try to insert code, it will not insert shortcode to the page(no action when clicked on insert button). Can we fix this error.

Thank you !

Veented

Hello there,

Please update your theme to the latest 3.0.4 version. :)

Hello, I love your theme! I just have one thing I want to ask about. On the portfolio page of my site, when the categories at the top are clicked on to filter the items – the page seems to shuffle. This looks a little unprofessional. Is there something that can be changed in the j query for clean transitions? ‘All boards’ to ‘shortboards’ is fine but ‘summer fun’ to anything else is chunky when it changes. Thanks so much. I have used your theme for a few different sites now and look forward to purchasing it again for future websites.

Veented

Hello there,

Thank you for the kind words, I truly appreciate it!

As for the issue – it is caused by your browser adding the scrollbar whenever the site exceeds the window height. There is really nothing that can be done here. Everything displays perfectly fine (without any shuffles) on a mac where scrollbars are hidden until used. :)

Filip

Hello Filip,

I am searching for a theme to create a minimalistic photographic site. I have examined nearly all portfolio themes at Themeforest and I think the Purity is exactly what I need. But I have some questions. 

1. Is it possible to write all menu titles and thumbnails captions in lower-case font (not upper-case as it is by default), and make it in Helvetica/Arial?

2. Is it possible to disabled thumbnails and arrows when mouse is over picture in Lightbox (keep arrows only under a picture)?

3. May thumbnails be displayed in the gallery not as cropped, but according to their original ratio, i. e. in regular horizontal rows with even spacings between (not masonry layout), like this:

http://mitchellkphotos.com/rabari.html http://portfolio.gavingough.com/#!/index/G0000sLBV4qCHrzQ/I0000104WokXQhy0

4. Is it possible to show a picture in Lightbox on the opaque (white or grey) background?

5. Is it possible to make “subgalleries” organised in hierarchy?  E. g. I make a gallery “Travel” with the link to some subgalleries (e. g. “Italy”, “Germany”, “UK” etc.), and more subgalleries from each, if needed (e. g. “People”, “Street”, “Food” etc.).  So that every gallery with a thumbnail could expand into a thematic chain (2-3-4 levels) with thumbnails with captions and the last level would maintain all the photos of the section, for overview as thumbnails or lightbox. 

If I understood correctly, each thumbnail in a gallery can be set or to a custom link or to a full size photo in the lightbox. In this case each thumbnail in a gallery can be linked to another gallery, so we can have a chain of galleries organised in hierarchy. Is it correct?

6. If this subgalleries are possible, would they be displayed correctly in Breadcrumbs bar?

7. Is it possible to show thumbnails in the Gallery Type 2 without captions?

8. Is it possible to hide the Filter bar in a Gallery keeping only Breadcrumbs?

Thanks a lot in advance for answers.

Best regards, argtoz

Veented

Hi again,

2. Naturally!

4. So you would like the image to fade away completely on hover, is that correct?

5 & 6. I’m so sorry, I did not understand your question at first. Sure, with the external site URL that’s absolutely possible. As for the Renown theme – I’m sorry but the external URL portfolio item feature is not available out of the box. However, you can easily create a grid with images as links using shortcodes. :)

Regards,
Filip

Default-user

Thanks, Filip!

4. No :) I am talking about an enlarged photo that is surrounded by a grey background (the gallery page is lightly seen through it). So I want this background to be less transparent and more opaque (that we can see only a big photo at the center, not all the rest of page behind it).

5 & 6. It’s really great! But what is the difference between external URL linked to a portfolio item and the same porfolio item as link via shortcode? We click on the item and in both cases we go to a gallery, am I right?

All the best, argtoz

Veented

Hi!,

4. Oh, sure! It’s absolutely possible to change it.

5 & 6. That’s true, but as I mentioned – Renown theme does not support external URL type of portfolio posts.

Best Regards,
Filip

Hi there. I need to create a web site and I want to use your theme. Could you please suggest me the best/faster way to create a website with a lot of articles with the possibility to show them as a preview on the homepage? I really need to show just two specific informations of the article and not just the extract of it. I also cannot put my portfolio in page.. How can I do it? Thanks a lot in advance for answer.

Veented

Hi there,

Thank you for the interest!

Right now, as you can see on the theme’s demo, there is only a short excerpt of each post shown on the homepage under the ‘From the Blog’ section instead of the full text. Is that what you meant?

As for the portfolio page – can you please provide a bit more details? I’m not quiet sure what you mean..

Best Regards,
Filip

Hello! Anytime I set my gallery type to anything other than direct lightbox, I get a 404 when a portfolio is created. If you look at http://legacyeventskauai.com/kauai-weddings/ , the album Viv & Kris is supposed to be a image list but returns a 404. What am I doing wrong?

I want to change all posts to image lists instead of opening in a lightbox.

Thanks for the help!

Veented

Hi there,

It’s probably a problem with your .htaccess file. Can you please change your Permalinks back to default and see if it helps? If it does, then please changing them back again to pretty ones.

Hi Again.

I am using event plugin for the event management. When i used to visit single event page. It shows News page title. I want Event page title there. I tried with custom code and also tried with plugin to change. But unable to change. Can you help me where i exactly change to fix this error. My site is http://hcpin.org and single event page is: http://hcpin.org/events/lorem-ipsum/

Thank you !

Veented

Hi there,

It looks like the plugin uses a separate custom post type. It will require a bit of a code modification to achieve what you need. Can you please drop me your WP login credentials privately on prafgon@gmail.com so I can further investigate?
