Nice Work. GLWS!
It looks great, congratz
Congrats! Good luck!
Simply great !
Love this theme… works really well in Demo – Question re the blog – how easy is it to configure (for user replies) and do you have to write the blog in html editor ? ie Dreamweaver.
RedInk includes a functional comment system using Disqus, you can see and try it out on this page: http://www.lglab.co.uk/redink/blog-single-disqus.html – It is really easy to setup and I have included directions to do it in the help file. The code is already setup in the page, so all you have to do is register for free with Disqus and replace my username with yours.
As this is a HTML template the content can be added in a any text editor such as Dreamweaver but also free ones such as Notepad++ or SublimeText.
If you need any help feel free to email me via my profile page.
Greg, thanks for the reply – off to buy it ...
Its a really lovely theme.
Very nice design. Would be perfect for my next projet.
I checked it out on the iphone and the navigation is hardly responding. Any ideas on that? Thanks.
Figured it out – you have to push the left upper corner of the menu item.
It works fine here, however make sure to remove the top black bar from the preview to view the template on mobile as that iframe is causing it to behave differently.
Love all the elegant transitions. Great work guys!
Please remove the ENVATO iFRAME in order to preview this template correctly. The ENVATO iFRAME prevents the template from being responsive and on mobiles it makes the menu button a lot smaller than it actually is!
Great theme LGLab.
What’s the go with the menu though; it’s not a standard responsive menu is it? It doesn’t work at all on a desktop if the browser is resized. And on a iPhone/iPad it looks really hacky like one menu is hidden behind the other.
Apart from the menu, it’s an excellent and unique theme.
The menu is coded so it triggers the native navigation system of the phone, it’s not a hack, I just think it’s the best approach, so yes it’s a select html element behind a graphic as it is not possible to style a select html tag.
Technically the menu doesn’t need to work on desktop if you view the template on mobile sizes, as it is not a real world situation.
This is a great theme Greg, but it’s a really hack menu.
It’s super-hacky on touch screens [iPhones and iPads] as ~80% of the graphic doesn’t trigger the menu. Only the hidden select element does, but it’s only the top ~20% of the graphic.
If I view the template at half-screen on a MacBook Air the menu doesn’t work, at all. And even worse, visually, it looks to be a functioning menu, but nothing happens when you click it.
It’s presumptuous to dictate to what is and isn’t a “real world situation”. Especially when a real user stumbles across a real menu issue when really using your theme.
Well it is certainly not supposed to be that problematic, so maybe I’m missing something. What you are describing about touch screens is a bit strange so I’ll check that out, as it works perfectly fine on my android devices and it worked fine when I tested on iphone last time, so maybe something broke since.
Regarding desktop view, the menu as you see it on fullscreen should behave that way down to 768px window width (up to when the logo/menu becomes a grey bar fixed at the top), under that resolution, the menu should still trigger a dropdown menu on desktop (which actually triggers native navigation on mobile devices).
What I meant by real world situation, is that in this case you are a previewing a template on desktop and are resizing it to small size (under 768px width)to test the responsiveness of it, as a potential buyer, which real world users wouldn’t do when going to a website.
Anyway, I’m quite happy to tweak it and improve the menu as I take your feedback seriously, it’s just that I have not witnessed what you are describing, so if you are interested in this template and would like me to improve the menu please send me an email via my profile page so we can discuss the behaviour you are seeing.
The hidden HTML element is 17px high.
The menu graphic is 75px high.
The menu works if you touch the top 20% of the graphic.
The menu does not work if you click the bottom 80% of the graphic.
Ok that is definitely not the behaviour intended but I think I know what is happening, would you mind sending me an email so I can show you and confirm a possible fix?
This should be fixed now.
Has the menu update rolled through to the live demo Greg? I can see it works better on the iPhone and iPad now, but it’s still a hacky menu solution that shows both menus all of the time. Isn’t the premise of responsive menus to adapt to the screen, not to show both versions 100% of the time, just with one version hidden behind a design element?
Please send me an email to discuss this further.
The menu does not work if you click the bottom 80% of the graphicOn iPhones and iPads
Thanks for your feedback, yes I did fix the menu issue a few hours ago on the demo and it should be approved for download shortly, I’ll write a note when it is.
For the pagination you are right, I just set some dummy urls for the demo.
When there’s only 1 carousel item, how do you stop the carousel from continually looping?
Please send me an email via my profile page and I’ll add a fix for that.
Can the menu bar be open at all time?
Yes these are 3 options to choose from regarding the menu opening, you can choose to show it all the time, only once when a user first visits the site as in the preview or never, these options are detailed in the documentation.
I was wondering how to slow down the slideshow on the main page? and use a static image instead of a slideshow?
To adjust the slideshow delay go to line 335 of redink.js and adjust the delay property:
Hi, I’m very happy with my purchase.
I have a question though.
For the Portfolio page, the text under the you tube video” ie, the data-description, can that be used for an image instead of text?
No that’s not an option currently.
This is an awesome theme! But before I purchase it I need to know if one of the top menu item can be configured to open directly a certain item from portfolio (in this case, a You Tube video).
Yes but with some tweaking.
Open the redink.js, and add the following function wherever you want, like below the “getCookie” function on line 148 for example: http://pastebin.com/1FgkbMgd
Then at the bottom of the initPortfolio function, on line 930 add the following: http://pastebin.com/yjBDiJHD
Now you can point to the portfolio html page and pass a “item” parameter in the url with a number value corresponding to the item you want to open by default, note that this value is “zero based” so the first item is 0, second item is 1 and so on, so the url to open for example the second item by default would look like this:
Feel free to send me an email if you are having issues.
im interesting your theme.
but i wonder that, may i add google map to contact form and pattern overlay to main slider?
thanks a lot.
sory. google map to contact page.
There is already a google map in the contact page, in the address field there is a “view map” link which opens a lightbox, but you can add a google map in the page if you want.
For the overlay, add this to the screen.css and adjust the path to your overlay image accordingly:
background: url(../images/overlay.gif) repeat;
This is a unique theme, but before I purchase it, can you explain the blog thing – Disqus. I don’t know what that means to me as a user. Does that mean it’s not WordPress? Also, what is the status with the above menu question regarding how it displays on tablets and phones?
Disqus is a popular comment system which can be easily added to any template/theme, even html templates with no backend. It’s free and very easy to setup.
The menu works fine on mobile devices.
just gotta add my 2cents – great template and responsive on all devices, PLUIS excellent support. i wish i knew my code better so i could create something like this but its way beyond my designer capabilities so i can only appreciate what others do. lol Also, I had a question on how to adjust the timing on the homepage carousel and received fast feedback. would def purchase something again from this author. oh and also, extremely well organized and clean.
Thank you for the nice comment
Seems there it’s a problem on Android browser. On my tablet and SGalaxy works with firefox/chrome but with own browser no. I click and the menu doesn’t open.
