Hi there, I’ve used this theme for a few websites now – going great! One question though – is it possible to disable the background image of the works and put one generic background? I don’t want it to keep changing for each work as the load time is too much.

Many thanks!

THBThemes

Hi there,

unfortunately the theme single work visualization wasn’t conceived to have a generic background, and the modification would be too risky as it would involve too many files. Sorry about that!

Cheers,

No worries, will stick with the manual way of doing it instead!

Hi,

There seems to be an error. On the template “home page”, when you press ‘next’, it goes to second page, but once you are on the second page, you cannot go to 3rd nor 1st (previous does not pop up) can you check on this matter, or let me know if there is any way to fix it?

thanks

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

THBThemes

Hi there,

you need to install the shutter.zip file inside the main Shutter v2.0.1.zip archive, if you have other issues 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.

WOW, this is Beautiful, GRT WORK!! looks awesome on iphone/mobile too, GRT smooth drop down menu even!) just curious how pages/backgrounds etc are built..?

THBThemes

Hi there,

thanks for your intest in Shutter, page background (or slideshow if you upload more than one image/video) is managed with a custom metabox that allows you to upload videos or images and controls slideshow timing and effects.

Hi there

I’m trying to add a gallery to a portfolio page, but when I click on a gallery thumbnail I get an error message: Fatal error: Call to a member function getMetaboxes() on a non-object.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

Many thanks

Hi there,

Your theme is amazing but in my opinion it misses 3 things to make it the best there is: 1) Like system per item and available on the homepage thumbs 2) Exif information for each photo, could be a set of WP admin features to upload this 3) Masonry layout (all the rage at the mo)

Any chance you would consider these functions?

Kind Regards Rich

THBThemes

Hi there,

thank you for your interest in Shutter.

1) a like system can be added with an external plugin

2) that would be a cool functionality, and we actually thought about adding it in the past, but the thing is that in the largely vast majority of cases images uploaded are retouched and don’t contain the EXIF data.

So, instead of implementing something that would be broken in the majority of cases, we thought it’d be best to do something simpler, using custom fields.

3) Masonry layout is already available, for example http://thehappybit.com/demo/shutter/portfolio/portfolio-2-col/ , you can control also the gutter between the elements if you want.

Cheers

Morning,

Thanks for the reply…

The like plugins are not really that good, unless you know of one that is? – I specifically wanted a heart one really…

I was wondering if the exif info could be adding in manually via a set of boxes in the admin? and then displayed on the page, for instance when you upload an image to 500px this is what you can do here.

Lastly this isn’t really what I would call a masonry layout, the images are practically all the same size, I wanted different ones in different columns.

The masonry part is a deal breaker for me really, the other 2 I can probably sort with some time and effort.

Any chance you can help out on the masonry part please?

Many Thanks Rich

richpearsonwd

Oh yes sorry I forgot, can the full screen mode be enabled so that the images have captions please?

richpearsonwd

I do have a brilliant idea for a new photography theme, would you be interested in writing one?

THBThemes

Hi there,

the exif could be added manually when insert the work from the editing page.

The Masonry effect is more or less noticeable depending on the image size, on our demo the images are pretty similar as proportions.

What do you mean with “can the fullscreen mode be enabled so that the images have captions” ? Slideshow images can have captions and the fullscreen mode for the background image or slideshow can be enabled by the button on the menu bar.

We currently have a couple of themes in the making, but we are always searching for new ideas, so if you want you can contact us using the contact form on our profile page.

Cheers

richpearsonwd

Hi, ok just going to send you an email now in reply to this :-)

richpearsonwd

ok all written and sent

richpearsonwd

just to answer the above as well

1) When you say it can be added manually, have you added this ability already as metaboxes on the page properties in the WP admin backend?.

2) Can you add in a few different sizes to the masonry page so we can all see what you mean and what it looks like please.

3) When hitting the fullscreen mode from menu bar, the fullscreen image a) needs to have a slideshow function currently it’s static, b) captions would be great on this page eg, picture name and photographer.

Rich

richpearsonwd

Sorry forgot to add – Add in infinite scroll function to masonry page

THBThemes

Hi there,

1) There are custom duplicable metaboxes with a key->value layout 2) Actually we can’t modify the online demo, anyway will be something like what you can see here http://thehappybit.com/demo/fotografia/photogallery/ 3 a) If you upload only one image will be a static full screen background, if you upload more than one image a slideshow will be automatically activated 3 b) Captions are already supported for full screen slideshow 4) Actually the “infinte scroll” functionality is available only for the Photogallery page template only when you choose (from the page template backend options) to load a fixed number of images (less than the total images number), so a “load more” button will be displayed and images will be AJAX injected into the page.

Hello i have several questions

First Does this Great Theme Support plugins such as Watermark , Geographical Redirect , and a plugin that disable Right Click , and membership plugin , does the theme support all wordpress plugin at least especially these plugins ??

SECOND Can i install plugin to support the slideshow with more effects , like 3D SLIDESHOW ?

THIRD Does this theme support MAC & Windows OS ?

THBThemes

Hi there,

we haven’t tested the theme with these plugins but should work.

The theme comes out with a built in slideshow with slide and fade effect, you can add an extra slideshow plugin to insert into pages content, but you can’t use as full-background slideshow.

The theme work on osx and windows.

I am thinking of purchasing this template – a user asked earlier about a “liking” feature – has this been addressed? Is it possible to add? I really like the idea of hearts, similar to Instagram, is there a plugin available?

Thank you! Jade

THBThemes

Hey there,

you can use an external plugin like Zillalikes, currently there’s no plan to add this feature on Shutter.

Hi,

I looked at the Shutter-theme. http://themes.thehappybit.com/theme-switcher/?theme=shutter

But I would like to know if it is build on PHP files or HTML files? If it is not HTML files, can you then recommend a theme looking like this with HTML? Thanks Majken

THBThemes

Hi there,

this product is a theme for WordPress, we’re sorry but we don’t have an HTML version available.

Thanks, hope to get a response soon.

H there, just trying to register at your support site, but it does not accept my purchase code ‘Not a Valid Purchase code’. I installed the theme and the dummy content – it does not appear as in the live preview.

THBThemes

Hi there,

due the site outage of yesterday http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/site-outage-update/125118 the Envato API has been turned off and obviously we’re using the official API for the purchase code validation.

We apologize for any inconvenience but we’ve to wait that the Envato dev team restore the service.

hi there! thanks for the great work!

i have 2 questions:

1. i would like to have a link to an external page from my main navigation bar. how do i do that?

2. is it possible to have the portfolio “works” collection on a different page then homepage?

thanks in advance and keep the good work up!

THBThemes

Hi there,

1) You can add a “Link” element to your menu that link to a static URL http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-custom-links

2) Sure you can create a page with a “Portfolio” page template, like this one http://thehappybit.com/demo/shutter/portfolio/

Cheers

Default-user

thanks a lot for your fast response. i will specify question 2 a bit more:

is it possible to have the portfolio on a different page WITHOUT having it on the homepage at the same time? by setting up a portfolio it automatically shows up on the homepage, and i would like to avoid that. i hope you can help and sorry for bothering you again with it.

THBThemes

Hi there,

yup, Portfolio entries are automatically shown in the home page.

Still you might want to do something like this: you can create two pages, one of them being a Portfolio page, the other one being a standard page, or a blog page, your choice. You can then assign the second page to be the home for your website.
