I really LOVE the AJAX “Load More”, “Read More” buttons I’ve seen. I didn’t see anything like these in your theme. They seem like they’d fit right in and even further enhance the awesome fluidity of this theme. Were these omissions a simple oversight or intentional due to potential SEO drawbacks? This is the only thing I’d add from what I can see pre-purchase and likely the only thing holding me back.

It should be noted that I absolutely hate every implementation of the “infinite scroll” concept I’ve seen and hope to never see this added to this item without an option to disable it. Most implementations screw up the UX by making the footer unreachable.

While there are some “old” plugins that claim to do these things, I’ve found they typically don’t work well with all themes.

Here are examples some examples of what I’m talking about so there’s less confusion…

I’m not expect exact implementations since you’d probably have better ways to improve on these older ideas.

I forgot to ask does the way the theme implements it’s AJAX functionality impact SEO / search crawlablity at all? If so, how much?

QODE

Hi,

our ajax functionality doesn’t hurt SEO of the site in no way because when the page is loaded it also loads all meta data for that page.

Ajax functionality can be disabled globally or per page.

Currently we don’t have load more for blog on our to-do list but it’s nice functionality that we might add for some of our future updates. We will consider that.

What size is the slider images? Every time I try to make one mine dont fit? Always too big. I cant figure out the right size.

QODE

Hi,

slider images should be 1920px wide. The height is up to you to decide. You should save them in compressed jpg format so they don’t take to much space on your server.

Hi,

I don’t have any images in the portfolio general page (but they are in the portfolio). How and where can we choose the image that is shown in the list of portfolio before accessing to the portfolio page?

Thanks by advance

QODE

Hi,

you need to choose featured image for that portfolio. You can do that by clicking on set featured link on the right side of the page. Images that you add in Qode Portfolio section are displayed on portfolio single page. Please take a look at the screenshot.

Thanks a lot.

Some other questions: -how can I set the blank space between each box in the portfolio single page? -is it possible to center the image (in this case a logo) in the box? -is it possible to remove the link to go the portfolio page (just want to use the feature to show clients logos in fact…)

Thanks a lot again for your great and very reactive support!

Hi i’d like to buy this theme but i can’t figure out if i can show my portfolio images (i’m a photographer) respecting their original aspect ratio (e.g. 2:3 for vertical images) in the portfolio section.

Is this feature supported? Or the portfolio page crop always in a square format even if the original image is a vertical one?

Thanks by advance

QODE

Hi,

portfolio images are never cropped, they are always displayed in it’s original proportions.

You’re welcome.

PRE-SALE QUESTION

Can you explain to me how the video background works? Is there a specific file type or?? Could I have the video background on the homepage alone with button & text???

QODE

Hi,

video background can be added to any section in the page. When section is checked to have video background fields for video format uploading become visible, along with the field for uploading static background image which is used as fall back on touch devices. Necessary formats are webm, mp4 and ogv.

When background video is set you can add on top of it any element that you want, including text and button.

PRE-SALE QUESTIONS

This is my favorite Theme so far, yet a few questions remain:

1) Is it possible to display a simple video with sound turned on and start/stop button instead of the sliders on a “Home”-type site?

2) Is it possible to progam the “Portfolio Projects” Elements to link to a site like the “Home” sites in the demo / another landing page?

3) Is it possible to color the “Our Process” Elements differently?

Best regards!

QODE

Hi,

we’re glad our theme is your favorite. :) we are really happy to hear that.

1) You can add video as a layer in layer slider

2) Unfortunately portfolio items can only link to single portfolio page. You can add link to the project on that single portfolio page that can lead to some external page.

3) Yes, of course. It can be done with some simple custom css.

Best Regards

Qode

Default-user

Thank you very much for the quick answer.

To 2) Would it be possible to include a layer slider and a pricing table on this single portfolio page?

Best Regards!

QODE

Hi,

yes, you can have both layer slider and pricing table on single portfolio page. :)

You’re welcome :)

Hi! I might have found the perfect theme I was looking for!! :D I have just some questions:
- In Interactive Elements http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/interactive-elements/ about the latest posts, if they were 6 posts instead of three, how would it go? Would it looks like a regular grid with fix height like you have in portfolio http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/portfolio/text-under-image/three-columns-grid/ (what I’m actually looking for, something similar to http://designandviolence.moma.org/archives/) or would it masonry like? http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/blog/masonry/
- In latest posts still, is it possible to show all the posts of just one category (or two categories)?
- Can the Interactive Banner link to a page or is it just plain text with image background?
- Is it possible to desactivate the footer but keep the copyrights?
Looking forward, thank you in advance!

QODE

Hi,

we’re happy to hear that. :)

1) if you set six posts in latest posts shortcode they would display three posts per row. Yes, exactly like portfolio list. List on referenced page is similar to our latest posts shortcode so you should use that to create your layout.

2) Yes, it’s possible. You can choose from what category or categories you want to show latest posts from.

3) Text that is visible on mouse over can be a link.

4) Yes, it can be done with some simple custom css

You’re welcome :)

Best Regards

Is it possible to change the initial position of the map when showing up the location? I can change the address and the zoom by your theme config, but not the positioning. Thanks

QODE

Hi,

initial position of the map is affected by first address that you add in contact page settings. :) there isn’t separate option for initial possition of the map.

Best Regards

Qode

Default-user

I only have one address, which is the one of the company and where the logo is placed. You are telling me that the theme has no option for modifying the initial position, but I can code. Is there an specific file where I could change that?

Thanks!

QODE

Hi,

You can look for google map JavaScript code in /js/default_dynamic.php

Hi, this is a PRE PURCHASE question — I can’t see a screenshot of the admin section clearly enough, but is there an ability to edit the HTML in the admin to use images as headers? My client wants some customized typography and layout for the headers so I would need the ability to edit the HTML. Thanks!

QODE

Hi,

WordPress itself has editor where you can edit header.php and make changes you want :)

Hello Qode, I got a River 1.04 and try to install and set. But, there is no scroll , so I found out your basic ‘stylesheet.min.css?ver=3.8:3’ said

body.smooth_scroll { overflow-y: hidden; }

So. I changed it like below; body.smooth_scroll { overflow-y: auto; }

Then, scroll is work, but I could not set custom scroll as you sample site on ‘http://demo.qodeinteractive.com/river/'

What should i do? Many thanks

QODE

Hi,

We can investigate problem on your end if you submit ticket to http://qode.ticksy.com and include WP admin access.

Best Regards

Qode
