Hi!

I was wondering if there was a way to sort portfolio items randomly in the Portfolio-widget. My client would like to have 4 random portfolios displayed on her front page, but the readily available sorting options don’t allow that.

QODE

Hi Jyri,

unfortunately, we don’t have that option for now. We will consider adding this option for some of our future updates.

Not sure why, or if this is at all helpful, but the Live Preview demo website that uses this template is really slow to respond and is not loading properly.

QODE

Hi,

we had a little problem with our hosting service, everything is ok now :)

Hi,

Not sure if it is due to an updated version of the theme I’m using but I really would like the “loading animation” between pages to be the same as the demo – ie the 3/4 circle that looks like a “C” as it ties in with my brand Clickfire.

Any suggestions? -

QODE

Hi,

could you please send us a link to your site so we can take a look at your loading animation?

Best Regards

The site is only viewable when logged in as it has a “coming soon” page enabled via plugin. I’ve given you logsacces to get in via back via /wp-admin on above-mentioned site via clicking “clickfire”

I’m having a problem getting the theme to load inside of wordpress. Are you getting this from anyone else? It keeps giving me an error when I try and load the River.zip folder.

Thanks. Danny

QODE

Hey Danny,

maybe your server has max file upload size limit. You can also try to install it via ftp, explained as method 2 in our documentation.

Qode

Default-user

Thanks.

Hello,

I wonder if there is any way to display a contact form on a section, in the home page (I am trying to build an one-page site)?

Thanks.

QODE

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no way to do that using our contact form, as it’s page template, but there are form plugins which comes with shortcodes and you will be able to place them anywhere on the page.

Thanks!

Hi there! Great theme here! I’d like to purchase it but I’d like to test it on my iPhone 5. Does it automatically become mobile responsive? The menu doesn’t seem to work.

Default-user

It seems to be a fixed layout than a responsive one on my phone.

QODE

Hey,

Did you try to close ThemeForest preview frame at the top or access demo url directly: http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/

Qode

Default-user

Ok. I removed the frame and became responsive to my iPhone but the righthand side menu doesn’t seem to work.

QODE

I just tested side menu on iPhone 5s and didn’t find any issue. What exactly is issue on your end?

Default-user

When I clicked on an item on the menu, I wasn’t sure if it was working. Is there a way I can test out the theme on my site before I can purchase it?

Default-user

I’d like to purchase this theme now. If it doesn’t work for me (which I doubt), is a refund possible?

QODE

Hey,

You can request refund directly from Envato (ThemeForest) as they are responsible for sales. You can also ask them in advance if that’s possible. We are exclusive authors at ThemeForest so they handle everything related to sale of our items :)

Qode

Default-user

Ok thank you! So far their support has ben awesome. :)

I tested the theme on my iPhone 5 again and the menu doesn’t seem to work when I click on “blog” and others. I don’t know if it’s just my phone. I have a question on the gallery post. When I click on the image to view, the preview pop-up seems to be smaller than the image i clicked and when I click the fullscreen button, the image enlarges beyond the phone screen. Is there a way to fix that?

QODE

Hey,

regarding menu, you need to click on small arrow on the right side in order to expand it.

Can you share the link to page you were testing with iPhone (preview popup issue)?

Qode

Default-user

Hi, I clicked on the small arrow but the child menu is not showing.

And for the pop-up issue, it’s basically the columns’ thumbnails and gallery.

QODE

Hi,

I was just able to reproduce both issues and I assigned them to one of our developers and he will address them as soon as he is done with other tasks.

Qode

Default-user

Thank you! I like to purchase the theme soon. Will these issues be resolved even when I start using this theme?

QODE

Hi,

I can’t commit right now to any deadline when those issues will be resolved, but it will be resolved in the future.

Qode

Default-user

I’d like to purchase it anyways, since it still works with the pc. Have you tested it on the iPad and other Android tablets?

QODE

Hi,

Yes. We have iPad4 and Samsung Galaxy tab :)

Qode

Default-user

Awesome! Thank you :)

QODE

You are welcome :)

Default-user

Hi, I just bought the theme the other day. Still figuring how to go about it. How do I set a featured video background like in the demo site?

Default-user

How do I change the video size therein?

QODE

Hey,

You can set video background if you edit Row and set row type to Section. Video background fields will appear then :)

Video fits size of the section (width of the browser and height of the section).

Qode

Default-user

Where can I find the Row and Section?

Default-user

Do you have a video tutorial on this subject?

Default-user

How do I change the height of the section? Do I use the video player element or the RAW html element?

Default-user

How do I put the social icons on the side area like the ones in the live demo? Sorry for all the questions. I love the theme…I just don’t really know how to go about it. :)

QODE

Hey,

No worries at all, we are here to help you :)

Sorry, I was wrong about section height, just checked it with other developer. Height of the section is defined by height of the video.

Side Area is widgets area. You should drag Text widget to it and add this code to Text widget:

<h6 style="color: #fff;">CUSTOM PAGES</h6>
[vc_separator type='transparent' color='' thickness='' up='10' down='7']
[vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’]
TRANSITIONS
[vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’] [vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’]
PORTFOLIO
[vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’] [vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’]
SOCIAL ICONS
vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’7’ social_icons icon=”icon-twitter” size=”icon-2x” link=”http://twitter.com” target=”_blank” icon_color=”#a9a9a9” background_color=”#464646” social_icons icon=”icon-youtube” size=”icon-2x” link=”http://www.youtube.com” target=”_blank” icon_color=”#a9a9a9” background_color=”#464646”

[vc_separator type=’transparent’ color=’’ thickness=’’ up=’10’ down=’9’]

SEE WORKS

Qode

Default-user

Thanks a bunch! It’s still a lot for me to figure out cos I’m not very familiar with web language haha.

How do I put the contact page on the side area?

Default-user

Is there a way to put video within the layer slider for homepage?

Default-user

Or how do I create my homepage with the video background like in the demo site here: http://themeforest.net/item/river-retina-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/6059307

QODE

Hey,

Thank you :)

You will need to use some plugin in order to put contact page via widget, for example Contact7 plugin.

Yes, layer slider supports videos. You can read their documentation, it’s included with ours :)

You should create Row element, set its type to be Section and option to use video background will appear. You will need to prepare self-hosted videos.

Qode

Default-user

I finally got the side area worked out. Thank you!

Do youtube links work as self-hosted video?

Default-user

What does “Video background (webm) file url” mean?

Default-user

I tried to using a video url from a self-hosting site but it doesn’t seem to work. I may be missing something.

QODE

Hey,

Where exactly are you trying to add Youtube?

Video background has different formats for different browsers: mp4, ogv and webm. You need to convert your video to all 3 file types.

You can also submit ticket to http://qode.ticksy.com/ and we can take a look at problem directly on your web site :)

Qode

Default-user

Hi,

I was trying to embed a youtube link on the mp4 slot but it didn’t work. So I uploaded my video onto another self-host site and onto my website with another plugin. But it didn’t work either. How do I convert my video and where can I do that?

QODE

Hey,

can you please give us more details and URL of the page with problem via ticket here http://qode.ticksy.com. Also please provide WP admin access and post ticket ID here.

Qode

Default-user

Hi,

I figured out another way to put up videos on my homepage. I used the layer slider and its great!

I was working on some pages and i wanted to put a post carousel like in the visual composer video I saw in the documentation but it’s not in the elements. Where do I find this element? I believe it’s called the “teaser posts grid.”

QODE

Hey,

Can you post a link to such element so I can understand your question better?

Qode

Default-user

It’s the post carousel in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CglFoJ1gwuc

QODE

Hey,

Please submit ticket to http://qode.ticksy.com/ and include WP admin access so we can enable this shortcode for you :)

Qode

Default-user

Thanks! Will do. :)

Do you have any video/blog tutorials on how to use the porfolio post/category?

QODE

Unfortunately, we don’t have, but please ask questions there and we will help you :)

Default-user

Ok thanks!

How do I enable the comments in each of my blog posts? It doesn’t seem to appear.

QODE

Hey,

you should enable them in Qode > Blog for blog lists and in Settings > Discussion also for blog single.

Qode

Default-user

Ok cool thanks!

How do I remove the category title on the blog list and how do I change the font of the blog title?

QODE

Hey,

Please post your question to http://qode.ticksy.com/ and include WP admin access so I can assign it to support stuff. Also, please post ticket ID here.

Qode

Default-user

As I was editing my posts, some of my links didn’t have color a link should have. I set my links to a black color in the Qode Settings but it does not seem to appear here: http://remytongol.com/newsletter-february-may-2013/#!

QODE

Hey,

Let move to ticky and give us wp admin access so we can debug it. Just give me your ticket ID here :)

Qode

Default-user

My ticket number is #157626 :) Thanks!

QODE

Thanks. Just assigned it to support stuff :)

Default-user

Just so you know, the link color and bold font is not functioning in most of my blog posts.

Default-user

And the spacing is not working now. :(

QODE

Thanks. Please update ticket with those details so I can assign it to support stuff again :)

Default-user

Ok. Just did. :)

QODE

Thanks :) Just assigned it :)

Default-user

Hi! I’d like to know if you can set the max-width and max-height of the video background.

Thanks!

QODE

Hi,

Video background fits width and height of the section. Does that answer your question?

Qode

Wazabi

That’s the problem when the video is less than 1920px width :(

QODE

I understand, but it would look awkward if it doesn’t fit the section :)

Hello,

I have a pre-sales question. I would like to know if there is a possibility to link directly from a portfolio preview image to an external URL. In your demo I see that the portfolio images link to a portfolio detail page, is there a way to link directly to an external site?

Thanks!

QODE

Hey,

There is no such option built-in, but there is always on option to tweak the theme via child theme and change how portfolio list shortcode is rendered. If you are familiar with working with child themes, that should be easy task for you.

Hi, i´m editing the theme of my client, and i´ve noticed that in the home, the html5 video with the text QODE INTERACTIVE , AWESOMENESS IS OUR PASSION, put a label at the right corner of the video, that says easyhtml5video.com, and i´ld like to know how can i cut that label or what free soft can i use to get the same effect or how can resolve it, thanks a lot

QODE

Hey,

That label was added to video itself as we used free eacyhtml5video software to convert video. You will need to prepare your video in another software without this label.

Qode

Default-user

yes, i ‘ve noticed that, and iwant to get that video called video_background.mp4 but without that label

QODE

Hi,

just use some other software for converting videos and it will be ok :)

Hi,

I have just recently purchased your theme,the demo is impressive. I have installed it and it is a success but now I am trying to customize it.. I want to have the home page same as the live demo with parallax but I am not able to . Do you have a detail documentation which I can refer to. As the doc along the download does not specify how to add parallax to the site.

Please help me at the earliest.

Thanks

Hi,

Just a quick questions before I start using the theme.

Do you have updates planned soon? I don’t want to start working with the theme if you have updates coming in the next few days.

Thanks Zak.

When is the planned release date?

Hi I’d like to have the option to play video inside thumbnails, both in the blog and portfolio. It seems to be implied here : http://themeforest.net/item/river-retina-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/6059307

BUt the play button doesn’t work.

QODE

Hi,

playing videos is available on blog lists, as you can see here: http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/blog/large-image-2/ Playing videos in portfolio list isn’t available at this point. Can you please send us a link of the page where it didn’t worked so we can take a closer look? :)

Best Regards

Qode

Default-user

Thanks! Actually, now it works. - can I change the blog post size in masonry blog? - will the option to play inside portolio thumbnails be added? one more question ;-) - can I put a list of related items, or better yet, the whole portfolio, underneath the single portfolio item?

QODE

Hi,

masonry size can’t be changed through our back-end, it requires some small modifications in code. :) Adding that functionality won’t be simple, but we will consider adding that :) Unfortunately, it’s not possible to add related portfolio items beneath portfolio item.

Hi, awesome theme! Only one question: I would like to know if it is possible to divide the page into 5 columns.

like 1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5

If unable to, can you suggest me some tricks?

Thanks

QODE

Hi,

unfortunately no, it’s not possible to have that layout because Visual Composer itself doesn’t support that layout.

Hello, so I bought these theme… well it is amazing.

I´m very frustrated I can´t use it because wordpress gives me a “Failure Notice” try again… I´ve installed other themes in this particular host, without a problem. Does your theme have a problem with other plugins?

QODE

Hey,

Thanks a lot :)

The theme is installed many times without any issue. Does that problem happen when you try to upload it? Did you try alternative way via ftp explained in documentation?
