Hi Alaja,

We are wondering, how many items can you add to the portfolio? Is there a limit? If so, how does the loading look like on the page? Is it an arrow displayed? a load more button?

BTW the black and white filter doesn’t seem to be working on some browsers, like safari.

Thanks!

alaja

Thanks for your feedback!

There are no limit and for now no any ‘Load More’ button. But there a lot of filtering options for works on each page. So the way to use folio area on the homepage for selected items only. We like things that way.

Hi there- I love the design, layout and am thinking of purchasing. However, just want to know if you have an example of a post with lots of text? My content will usually have one photo but will be text heavy.

Secondly, does it support ads? The usual banner ads.

Thanks for your time

Billy

Hello Billy,

Skoll mainly designed for large media content and portfolios, so for text-heavy posts you may find more suitable themes here, on ThemeForest. Anyway, thank you for your interest in Skoll WordPress.

Hello! Just purchased the theme, and the only thing I can’t figure out is – is there a ‘maxheight’ attribute in gallery? As I have some vertical images in portfolio, and they don’t fit very well in the slider.

alaja

Thank you for the feedback. To have a maxheight attribute for [gallery] shortcode please replace single-item.functions.php file in theme folder with this http://cl.ly/N3Xj/single-item.functions.php

Hello Sometimes when i add media in the media gallerie, it comes full size, sometimes it puts two images next to each other and sometimes it makes the image smaller. Is this due to the image size i load them up? Thanks

Image size is important, so if you have a 2 large images and 1 small, the last image will not be scaled up. So you have to take a minimum control what size of images you are loading. It’s easy to generate small thumbnails but not to control the size of all media content automatically.

Hi Alaja, Just wondering why folio appears in Black and white on chrome and iphone? thank you!

CSS3 was used for this filter, so not all the browsers support this for now. You may remove filters by using Custom CSS theme options and this code http://pastie.org/pastes/6275153/text

Hi there,

Great theme…I am trying to add in the thick and thin divider line that you use on the full screen preview page, for the headings. How can I add these within my page?

Thanks,

Hello D,

That’s not recommended for headings but you may use HTML tags:

Hello Alaja,

I was just currious to know how I can add text to the very top of the site just above the logo like you have in the theme demo? I can’t seem to find an option for it in the theme.. Thanks!

Hello once again!

Is there a way to force gallery images to fit height? Horizontal images display correctly, but vertical ones stretch to the width.

alaja
alaja Author

Hello,

Unfortunately, it not work for slider, as a slider box should be fixed in size for your users. You may use list gallery for example, or combine 2(3) tall images to one side-by-side with an image editor.

Hi Alaja :)

Categories for my ‘works’ doesn’t seem to work, however no issue for ‘journal’

Are you able to help?

Many thanks!

Hey, I really dig this theme but I don’t want the works to appear at the bottom of EVERY page. I want a unique page to display the works gallery. Is it possibly to edit the code to seclude it to a single page?

Hey Alex and Kim,

Congratulations on the theme, it looks sweet and has smooth, efficient navigation. Just what I was looking for! ;)

Just some questions before I buy:

-On the live demo I can’t seem to find any example page with a filterable porfolio, but on the comments I see you talk about the possibility to categorize both the works and posts. Can you clarify this option, please?

-Dumb question, but I have to ask: Is it possible to reduce the header heighth? For example, could I align my logo to the left and then have the menu next to it?

-Is it easy to change the bkg, fonts, colors?

-In Chrome, latest version as I just updated, I see all homepage thumbnails greyscaled. Will you fix that soon?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Toni,

Thank you, really appreciate it.

1) Filterable portfolio works from admin page, or from special urls. There are no ‘live-filter’

2) If you have some CSS skills, you can do it through the ‘Custom CSS’ theme option. But please note, we don’t support custom modifications.

3) It’s easy to change colors. For example, to have a solid white background, you have to add to ‘Custom CSS’ theme option this rule http://pastie.org/pastes/6028431/text

4) Not a bug, but feature

Sincerely, Alaja

I created the post, but the page content is in the middle, on your demo the images are bigger, how do I achieve this? Thanks. GREAT theme.

Thanks! Please use a [gallery] shortcode (Add Media -> Create Gallery). Check if you have the latest Skoll version. Also, when creating a Work use Shortcode Manager to view sample work context. That make sense and for posts now.
