We are considering buying your beautiful theme “shutter” for our portfolio, but have some questions that we hope you could be so nice to answer.
and at last, the header and footer in black, can we use another color or no color at all?
Thank you so much!
Juliana and Angelica in Madrid
thanks in your interest in Shutter!
Concerning your questions:
- You can pick how many works to show and their order in our admin panel
- The theme doesn’t come with audio flash out of the box, but should be flexible enough to be customized for that use.
- The theme header and footer are black by default, but the theme comes with the PSDs, so that you can customize the header and footer as you wish.
Theme looks good! One question:
When you click on a thumbnail on the frontpage, your taken to the page of that post – which is a page with either a right or left sidebar.
I need a layout with no sidebar, but I notice that you option for that brakes the width of the page… With content and sidebar – everything is the same width as the top head/menu, but without sidebar, it becomes much narrower. Is there any way to get this to full width = same width as the top?
thanks for your interest in Shutter.
With the latest update we’ve introduced a full-width page layout, that does just that. Tweaking the single photo/work page to behave like that in absence of sidebar shouldn’t be impossible, having the full-width page as reference.
I seem to have an issue where a br tag is added in any whitespace (in any template file). I’m using version 1.1 – is there a fix for this in a later version?
what you mean exactly?
anyway, please open a new topic on the subject over at our Support Forums ( http://support.thehappybit.com ), and we’ll answer your question as soon as possible.
Hello, I love the look of your theme, but am looking for something a little simpler. Would it be possible to remove the top nav bar and the bottom footers?
with a couple of CSS tweaks it would be fairly easy to get rid of both of them, yep!
Hi, I’m interested in buying this theme, I was wondering are there and ads space options for this theme. If not how easy or hard would it be to add ads to this theme?
the theme can be used with widgets. We have widget areas available as sidebars or footer widget areas. They can both be used to contain ads-specific widgets.
FYI , the widget areas can contain ads less than 190px wide (sidebar), or less than 210px wide (footer).
Of course, you could always tweak the theme by hand to make footer columns wider and still use them as widget areas.
hi! Great theme!!
only a question… in the homepage i have to put only my works or is it possible to put only my information ( contact, services, ecc…)?
you could use a static page (any page you’ve created) as your home page to put any information you need in it.
Love the theme, seriously considering buying but was wondering if you could help me out with some questions?
1. I was wondering if it would be possible to have multiple “portfolio pages” each with different category filters? So, for instance, if I wanted a portfolio page for photographs – with the user being able to select landscape, portrait and nature as the categories, and then another portfolio page for paintings, with the user being able to select acrylic and oil as the categories… can I do that with this theme?
2. How are “related posts” pulled in? Can I change it so that it pulls in only related posts with the same tag as the main post? So, say the post has the tag “lion” related posts with the tag “lion” are pulled in? And also, are the number of related posts set? Or can I ask it to pull in all of the related posts with no set number? So one post might have one related post, and another might have four?
1) Portfolio pages come with different layouts and can pick up portfolio items from a specific category of your choice.
2) Related posts are extracted by comparing all taxonomy items for the specific post type, which include posts tags too. You can easily edit a file to choose how many posts you want to show, but it’s a global setting, not individual per post.
im moments from buying this theme, but before I do. Is it possible to change the white boxes (like the contact page) to 100 transparents? or remove the white? Thanks!!!
removing the white boxes is a theme customization and can be done via CSS .
Love this theme. Everything just works out of the box! No hassles.
Good work team!!!
Does it have a problem with Chrome, I get a black screen every time I open, it works perfectly with IE but not Chrome, I cleared my cache too
the new version of Google Chrome appears to have lots of bugs, as you can see on the Chromium issues tracker ( http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/list?can=2&q=black%20canvas&sort=-id&colspec=ID%20Pri%20Mstone%20ReleaseBlock%20Area%20Feature%20Status%20Owner%20Summary ).
One of those bugs is specifically related to how the canvas element is rendered, which is reported to appear black. Luckily, you can disable the canvas functionality, to avoid the problem while maintaining full background images.
Thanks for the reply. Most probably I will be taking the theme. Looks good to me
I purchased and love this theme.
I have installed infinite scroll plugin (http://www.infinite-scroll.com) so I can make the homepage scroll infinitely (jquery style) instead of using the default pagination. I am having some trouble getting this theme to work with this function, it has something to do with CSS selectors. Would you be able to help me with this?

I’m interested in purchasing your theme, but have a question…on the homepage and the “Portfolio 2 columns” page I really like how the images work for those that have galleries and launch a light box when clicked. However, those with single images don’t open in a lightbox, but go their page. Is it easy enough to have single images open in a lightbox when clicked.
Also, on the “Portfolio 2 columns” page does the sorbability of the categories only work for the images displayed on the page at that time, or does it also bring in those form pages 2, 3, etc?
the lightbox could be easily added on “portfolio 2 columns” and yes, the filter work for each page on the works displayed, it’s not an ajax filter.
I’ve purchased this theme but it will not install. Error message below. tried several times. Please advise. Thanks.
Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-1491735-shutter-photography-portfolio-wordpress-theme.zip
Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme install failed.
you need to unzip the package you download from ThemeForest then upload the file shutter.zip included.
This is a truly magnificent theme, congratulations! I’ve narrowed my selection down to this and a couple of others, but after playing with this one for a while my mind is all but made up. Couple of quick questions (as I’m new to all this):
Is the theme fully documented?
Is there a way to setup an instance like the one you have running (demo site) to see how things are done in the back end?
Does purchase now entitle me to all future updates?
Apologies for the stupid questions and, once again, well done.
thank you for your interest in our theme.
The theme is fully documented and we have a dedicated support forum, the packages you download from ThemeForest comes with the dummy content demo and yes, the future updates are free
I’ve purchased the theme, but i have a question..
I need to insert in the homepage 4 boxes: info,contact,services and portfolio; so NOT works! It’s possible? Because i see that in the homepage you’ve put only works that are linked to a “portfolio page”.
I don’t want to see my works in the homepage.
If it’s possible can you explain me how can i make this?
I’ve been resolved this problem!
But i’ve only another question!
Can i eliminate the category’s icon above the work’s square in the homepage?
I have to eliminate these only in the homepage, in rest of the site i want to keep them.
are you talking about work’s filter?
You can use the “portfolio options” select on each “portfolio” page template to select only a category to display, this will remove the filter, then set your page as static home page.
Can I put a paragraph of descriptive text with each photograph?
If not can I have text to accompany each portfolio page?
unfortunately, both things are not possible. The only way to display a short introductory text for each portfolio entry is to choose the Full width portfolio page template with left/right description: http://thehappybit.com/themes/shutter/?page_id=179
You may pat yourselves on the back.
I have just launched my folio website using Shutter, it’s an awesome theme as complete as thought out as any that I have used.
It’s early days yet but I particularly love the strong emphasis on SEO . I have to go back through the site and improve but already less than a day after opening it up to Google I am getting some serious results.
Well done and thanks.
We’re glad to hear that
Wonderful bought this wonderful theme. Thanks!
1. Ist the email contact form a WP issue or is it a Theme issue?
2. any tips for the gallery usage? I can’t create a gallery with more than one image.
The Menu bar doesn’t look like yours. I only achieve a pulldown menu… Also an issue of WP?
Soory but I am new to it…
My WP Version is 3.3.2
Thanks in advance! if you wanna have a look check www.raw-foto.com
i really like the shutter-theme, but i have a MAJOR issue with the pagination, which seems useless when narrowing the displayed results via the type-filter.
when using a filter, the matching results are not consolidated on one page, but the unmasked works stay spread over the original amount of pages, even if the resulting subset of works could be displayed on one page only.
this leads to absurd situations, where e.g. i have 3 matches on page 1, and another one on page 2, and maybe two more results on page 3, while all these results could as well be brought together on one page.
please help asap!
Hi. i just purchased your theme. I don’t belong to your support forums and can’t figure them out. I do not have a logo for my website and want to simply put text in that area. How do I do that? Thank you.
we can’t see the “buyer” badge, are you sure you are referring to our theme Shutter? There’s another theme with the same name here on the marketplace.
You are correct, it is the other one. Apologies.
