“Mobile menue”: - why is the menue scrolling down when opened? can it stay at the top where it belongs?

Vertical Navigation: - where is a scrollbar (all the other vert-nav themes have it) - is it widget ready? its a lot of space there why waste it?!

i will buy this theme definitely if u add this 2 features!!

Hi MegaTheme,

Still absolutely loving this theme and thanks so much for featuring my site as an example. I’ve recently changed my logo so please feel free to update the screen shot ;)

I have one question. I’m trying to find a way to change the layout slightly.

Currently when viewing on a small screen or tablet etc it looks like this: http://www.michaelfoyle.co.uk/dump/from_this.png I would like to find a way of making it look like this: http://www.michaelfoyle.co.uk/dump/to_this.png

I’m sure it’s just some fairly simple CSS but I cant find a good way to do it. It would just make my site look a bit neater when viewed on small screens or mobiles I think.

If you can offer some advice on this, that would be really helpful!

Many thanks for your help.

Kind Regards,

Michael

Hi, we would suggest to hire a developer to help you with this modification.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply. I had thought it would be a straight forward adaptation, but if it’s not then I’ll probably just leave it :) If you come across a solution somewhere down the line, please let me know.

Many thanks once again.

Best,

Mike

Hello I like this theme. I have it installed and have begun work formatting it but I am having a few problems.

How do I make a filtered portfolio category display in the same format at they do on the portfolios list of your demo? I want the menu to drop down when the portfolios link is hovered and display portfolio categories. When they are clicked I want to to show those as a seamless mosaic.

Also. I need to change the color of the menu items in the main menu. There dont seem to be any controls for that. I can change the hover color but the text color seems fixed as a dark gray. Where do i find this in the CSS?

Thanks for your help :-)

MegaTheme

Hello, thank you for the purchasing!

Please read the documentation that comes with the theme, any common questions can be answered within the documentation.

Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:

#access ul a {
color: #111;
}
.
Default-user

Thanks for the reply. My first question is not covered in your documentation. I have not been able to find a way to configure it so that category items in a portfolio will display in the right way. The automatic menu that comes up when you enable filtered portfolios, displays the results the way I want them, but If I build a custom menu to display portfolio categories, those results only show in one style as far as I can tell. Please advise.

MegaTheme

I’m sorry but I don’t quite understand your question. Can you try restating it or adding some additional information?

Default-user

How do i change the way results are displayed when a link to a portfolio category is clicked? I cannot find this in your documentation.

Default-user

Also, can you tell me where I can change the color of theĀ© text?

MegaTheme
  1. Unfortunately I’am still don’t understand what you mean.
  2. Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:
    body, input, textarea {
    color: #111;
    }

Hi!

I really like the theme. I got two questions.

1. How can I add Gallery Categories to the menu? I only see the option to add Porfolio Categories, but I use mostly the super smooth slider, and it’s under the Gallery option.

2. How can I add text to the super smooth slider? I want to add text at the beggining of the slider.

Thanks

Ok. One last thing, is it possible to keep the menu “open”, I mean expanden while visiting a gallery? I want the menu to show which post the person is viewing. Thanks!

MegaTheme
Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > General and add these lines of code to your Tracking code block:
<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
$('#access .empty-link > a').attr('href', 'javascript:void(null);');
$('#access .current-menu-item').parent().addClass('sub-menu-current');
});
</script>
.

Finally navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:

.sub-menu-current {
display: block !important;
overflow: hidden !important;
height: auto !important;
}
#access ul li a:hover,
#access ul li.sfHover > a,
#access ul .current-menu-item > a,
#access ul .current_page_item > a {

Hi! I Purchased the theme today and it is GREAT! It is very easy to handle, and very user-friendly. (Actually it is the easiest theme to handle I have ever met, and as a developer I worked with quite a lot of themes by now.) So I am very happy that I chose your theme.

However there would be a point where I need some help. I think it is not available out of box, as I did not find such an option on admin.

In spite of this I have to solve this, so I hope you can point me to the right direction and help me in this.

We want to use Full Width Slider. However the theme is using a FILL type of image scaling, cropping some portions if the image. With portrait images it can’t be used. (as it cuts parts of a face, etc.)

What we would like to have is a FIT type image scaling method, so no part of the image would be cropped, but with portrait imaged a white area would remain to the left and right of the image.

I found on the net that RoyalSlider handles 4 types of image scaling: fit-is-smaller, fit, fill, none. But I can’t find where to change in the code.

Please help me in this or get me in contact with a developer who can help me in this. It is very important for me.

Looking for your answer.

Thanks for your help.

Hello again,

I have been having such a great time tinkering and refining this theme to my needs, I’m still loving it! Best buy of 2013 by far.

I am having some problems accessing the main ‘Portfolio’ page. I’m not sure what I did, or if something happened. But I cannot properly access ‘www.charlielocke.com/portfolio’. Instead, I am having to use ‘www.charlielocke.com/portfolio-2’. Not sure why this is, but I’ve tried everything!

Also, I would like to be able to create a second Portfolio which is password protected, strictly for client access for proofs. Which also contains projects for different clients, which are also independently password protected. I can’t figure out how to do this.

I would also love to know how to introduce colour into my portfolio, when hovering over the items on this page: ‘www.charlielocke.com/portfolio-2’, I would like it to be similar to this: http://themeforest.net/item/skylab-portfolio-photography-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/4740718

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks.

charlielocke

The main problem I am having, is that I don’t know how to get www.charlielocke.com/portfolio as a menu option on the left hand side.

I can’t view the portfolio items (the individual items on the whole page). They are only listed as if it were a blog.

Hi, sorry, what you have described isn’t available with the theme.

Sorry, maybe I’m not clear.

If you visit my portfolio page. The url shows ’.com/portfolio-2/’. I would like this to be ’.com/portfolio/’

Hi I just purchased the Skylab template. When I upload the normal logo Name: BM_logo_black.png (79×79 px) it shows up fine. But when I also upload the Retina logo Name: BM_logo_black@2x.png (158×158 px) it is the big logo that is shown and it doesn’t resize the logo for my retina screen. What should I do to scale the size of the retinal logo as it should ? Thank you for your help.

MegaTheme

Hi, navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:

Unfortunately, due server limitations you will need to change permissions for dynamic.css using chmod so the server can write to the file. I have had the most success setting this single file to 0777 but feel free to play around with permissions until everything is working. A good starting point is 0666. When the server can save to the file CSS will automatically be updated each time you save your theme options.

Default-user

Hi again, and changed the permissions to 0666, the site writes the code in the dynamic.css, but still nothing happens… is there a something I miss? While waiting for your reply, I’ll just make some transparent borders to the logo files… Again thanks for your reply

MegaTheme

Hi, I don’t see the code on your site.

Default-user

Hi, as I said, I removed the code and added transparent borders to the logos. The big logo is now 316px wide. It works, but it’s not coded… Would be happy to try again if there’s another solution. I have a few questions regarding this layout: http://www.bm-photo.ch/aaaaa/

1. I’d like to add some text (gallery description) as the first slide… is there any way a possibility to fetch the text from a html source ? How could I do it ? 2. would be great if the full scree button and the caption would disappear too once hover and out, now it’s only the arrows. 3. Is it possible to change only the full screen background to black ?

There’s many more, but for now i’ll stop here :-) Many thanks for your replies.

Default-user

Hello, I’ve came quid far these days.

1. What I’d like is to show on what exact portfolio or gallery I’m in. Now portfolio (portfolio list) is only a page and doesn’t contain any sub pages to go to the different portfolios, same for galleries. How can I make this possible? In the comments before there was a similar question, I’ve added the script and the css as you told, but for me, nothing changes.

2. Could you check, the add this button? It looks great in my journal, www.bm-photo.ch/journal and looks not good on any other pages… how can I format it?

MegaTheme

Hello,

  1. Sorry, what you have described isn’t available with the theme.
  2. On which pages exactly?

For anyone asking about the 1. to display which gallery or portfolio i’m in: Just add as a sub-menu the exact portfolio page, and that’s it !

The docs that come along save you a lot of time ONLY if you read them before… not like me :-) It’s well explained how to display the add this custom button !

Hello,

Great Job on the theme.

My question is about the number of columns + size of the thumbnails on the Portfolio List. I notice on your demo (http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/) there are 5 columns and each thumbnail is approx 271px x 210px. In my installation (http://ced.berkeley.edu/research/water-and-architecture/), I’ve downloaded your demo content but my site still displays 4 columns with larger thumbnails on the Portfolio List.

How can I achieve 5 columns as you have in your demo? What size should I make the featured image thumbnails in order to have the 5 columns?

Thanks in advance. Monica

Also, a smiley face appears on the bottom of every page of my site, except the home. (see screenshot: http://i44.tinypic.com/acqz2f.png). I never noticed this before. Is this due to a code in the theme? I would like it removed.

Hi Skylab Team ! :sing: I love this theme, it’s just perfect for my pictures and my portfolio!! Thanks a lot for a such great theme :inlove:

Here you can check it : http://www.kimyalvarez.com

A little question for optimization :mad: – what is the best resolution and size for my photos? I’ve found them a bit too long to load – please tell me what you think about it.

Thanks and good luck for purchase. :bashfulcute:

xo, Kimy.

MegaTheme

Hi, thank you for the purchasing!

Make sure your photos not bigger than 500kb.

Use Fewer Images.

Compress and Optimise Images.

When you export your images from Photoshop, always use the “Save for Web” option. Once your image is exported, you can make it even smaller with an image optimisation tool. These tools are able to strip unnecessary data and compress your images even more than “Save for Web”, usually losslessly.

Some tools you might like to try include: http://www.smushit.com/ysmush.it/ http://imageoptim.com/ http://pngmini.com/lossypng.html http://nikkhokkho.sourceforge.net/static.php?page=FileOptimizer

Hi I have my main page set to show Portfolio with the mosaic option. The vertical featured images look good/sharp but the horizontal featured images look a little fuzzy/blurred.

Is it possible to have the horizontal featured images a bit sharper?

Hi again,

One more question about your great theme.

In my installation (which uses your demo content at the moment) I’m experiencing a couple of strange effects when I mouse over SOME, BUT NOT ALL of the thumbnails on the Portfolio List homepage:

1) In some cases the highlight text expands to the top of the thumbnail as opposed to centering in the middle of the thumbnail. This problem exists on on Windows 7 Chrome. Here’s a screenshot you can download screenshot: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByS7LlOMi2hZcTV4OFdSSnFYY1k/edit?usp=drivesdk

2) In some cases the highlight color fails to show up and the highlight text expands, unreadable, to the top of the thumbnail. This problem exists on on Windows 7 Chrome + Firefox. Screenshot to download: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByS7LlOMi2hZNnZMaVNzLXd0ak0/edit?usp=drivesdk
