looking great EugeneO. I’m new to wordpress so pardon the ignorance, but can I edit things like speed of zoom when hovering, color of hover state, font selection, or the spinning action of the arrows? Can I change the code in the editor? Or is it WYSIWYG of the live demo? Thank you in advance if you can respond.

EugeneO

The Test Drive link on the demo takes you to the WordPress customizer. This is exactly the same as what is in the theme and includes all the built in theme options. Anything beyond that would have to be changed manually via coding.

got it, i’ll check out the test drive, thank you

Hi,

This is a beautiful theme, just purchased it. Does the theme come with the demo images and video? I cannot find them.

Thanks

EugeneO

No the demo images and video are not included.

Default-user

Very disappointed. Can you tell me where you got the video? Or where you recommend to get videos?

EugeneO

Look for any video stock site such as http://videohive.net. Also Vimeo and Flickr both have Creative Commons videos.

Default-user

Added the vimeo link into the homepage’s video source, tried both: Webm source and MP4, it’s not showing the video.

When I added a video to the media library it worked, but would rather show it from vimeo or youtube, etc.

EugeneO

You have to host the video yourself by uploading it to your WordPress site.

very nice

can you have the menu without ghosting ?

It would be nice to integrate a plugin ecommerce ….. like a “easy digital download”

it is possible to obtain the documentation or watch a video to better understand the functions of the theme?

EugeneO
1.) This will remove the transparency from the navigation links:
.header-content nav ul a,
.header-content nav h1:first-child + ul:hover a { opacity:1; }

But adding that will mean there is no hover effect on the navigation links.

2.) The theme was designed primarily as a blogging theme so eCommerce wasn’t ever on the agenda. I can see how it might be a useful feature but I have no experience with any of the eCommerce plugins and it would take some time to implement so I am hesitant to do it.

3.) The theme uses existing WordPress features and functionality so if you know the basics to WordPress you will no no problems at all.

Hi!, Amazing theme thanks. I just have one issue. For the home page i set it to a static page and i wanted the to show what category its in but i don’t know how to except using the home page as a cat . anyway of doing that?

site.Lockedvolt.com is the site

EugeneO

To have a portfolio grid as the home page you either have to use the Portfolio page template (as I have done on the demo) or find a plugin that allows you to set a custom taxonomy term as the home page (I don’t know if a plugin like that exists). There is no way to show the category name.

lockedvolt

Ok i’ve done that and for some reason it shows the category in the home page and the text goes over each other. If you look at the website i have added a > as a temp but i want to know if there is anyway for that not to show like on your demo site

EugeneO

I misunderstood your original post. On the page edit screen make sure the “Category Label” option is not selected.

lockedvolt

Yes but when i do that, it removes all of the categories, i just want it to remove the home page category. basically how i have it set up is that in order for the images to show up on the home page i created a home page category and made that page the static page. so i’m just trying to remove home page category as a displayed category

EugeneO

You can either have the category labels showing on all of the grid squares on this page (site.Lockedvolt.com) or have the category labels showing on none of the grid squares.

Your portfolio structure should be hierarchical it should look like this:

  • Work
    • Websites
    • Photography
    • Videos
    • Prints
    • Vectors

Once your portfolio structure looks like that there is no need to create a specific portfolio category for the home page as you just select the “Work” category as the portfolio to show on the home page.

The portfolio grid will then show the lowest possible portfolio category from the hierarchy. In the above example “Work” would only ever be shown as a portfolio category label if the portfolio item was not in one of the other child portfolio categories (Website, Photography, etc).

lockedvolt

AWESOME! i got it to work. thanks for your patience and your great explanation.

EugeneO

No problem. Best of luck with the website.

Hi. Great theme! I’m trying to change the default font. Any way to use google fonts with this theme?

EugeneO

You use google fonts the same way as with any normal website. As it is WordPress you need to enqueue the font stylesheet in the functions.php of a child theme rather than hardcode the link into the site page code. You can then apply the font via CSS in the style.css of the child theme.

Here is a tutorial showing how to correctly use google fonts with WordPress: http://geekgirllife.com/how-to-use-google-web-fonts-in-your-wordpress-theme/

Any chance I can turn off, Some or All of the little animations of the icons? I’m probably going to purchase this theme today…

EugeneO

You can remove them via CSS.

.square-icon:hover span {
-webkit-transform: none;
-moz-transform: none;
-o-transform: none;
-ms-transform: none;
transform: none;
}

Hello Eugene0

Is it possible to center the single posts, without the Featured Image on the left side?

Thanks and Keep the amazing work Guga

EugeneO

There is no option built in that does that. You would have to modify the CSS yourself as I do not have the code necessary to do it.

ajfiel Purchased

ok…:) no problem. Good luck with the sales!

EugeneO

Looking at the code you would need to create a new version of navigation.php in a child theme and then remove is_single() from the big conditional statement that adds the feature-content-half class to the content area.

You would then need to create a new version of single.php in the child theme with the feature content removed (you could remove the entire .feature-content div) and replacing funky_the_remaining_content() with the_content().

After that I think it would be small CSS tweaks.

.single .page-content { max-width: 9999px; } // To remove the existing page width limitation.

.single .content-padding {
margin: 0 auto;
max-width: 980px
}

Hi. I really like this template. Does this template support selfhosted h264 files?

Best regards, Bo

EugeneO

Yes. For background videos it is best to have both WebM and MP4 versions of the background video to get the most complete browser support. There are individual options for both formats. You can also add a an image (a still frame from the video works best) to be used by the mobile layout and as a fallback for instances where the video can’t be loaded. You can see this in action by resizing the demo home page to below 800px wide.

You can also add self hosted videos to portfolio items and posts as featured content (not a backgrounds) by selecting the video post format and simply adding the direct URL to the video file to the content editor.

Default-user

Hi. Thanks for the very quick reply. I’m particulary interested in hosting my showreel in the portfolio section and using selfhosted quicktime h264 files. It’s good to know, that it works.

How about a Photo portfolio? Is it possible to have the portfolio set up that a click on the preview picture reveals a bigger size photo without the text? Or is it possible to navigate easier through the pictures besides the dots (like in the “Desktops” Post in the portfolio section)?

And is it possible to have a picture slideshow on the first homescreen rather that a background video?

Thanks for the help.

EugeneO

For the most complete browser coverage you will need both a .MP4 and .WebM version of the background video.

There are two two ways to main ways to show a gallery of images in a portfolio the slider and gallery:

http://themes.eugeneo.com/soapbox/portfolio/dance-crew/
http://themes.eugeneo.com/soapbox/portfolio/rockable/

Neither of them allow you to click on the images to expand them.

You can have either a single image or a video background on the fullscreen page template. No slideshows.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. That helps!

Greetings, I’ve installed this theme and am enjoying the organization and grid formatting. The documentation is clear and helpful. :)

However I find that the small menu button for collapsing navigation isn’t going to be enough for [my] viewers.

Can you help me out with some info? Is it possible to change the ‘icon’ style with three lines to a word, or to turn off the collapsible menu all together? I was hoping switching it to say something like “Menu” wouldn’t be too difficult. Any help is appreciated.

EugeneO

The three lines is the now the standard for “menu” however it is possible to change it.

The menu toggle button is found at the very bottom of header.php. Create a copy of header.php and place it in a child theme. Then change this:

<!-- Navigation Menu Toggle -->
<span class="square-icon menu-toggle">
    <span class="funky-icon-menu" />
</span>

To something like this:

<!-- Navigation Menu Toggle -->
<span class="square-icon menu-toggle">
    <span><?php _e( "Menu", "funky_theme" ); ?></span>
</span>

You need to remove the funky-icon-menu class to remove the original icon and add your replacement text inside the span element. You will then have to do some CSS tweaking to make the text fit as the button currently has as set width of 60px.

Hi! I really love this theme but Iam a little bit afraid of using it as I´d never used Wordpress before…

Is there a way to install a demo and just change the images or something?

Thanks!

EugeneO

The theme includes demo content in the form of an xml file that you import into WordPress using the WordPress import plugin. The content in the XML is very similar (although not completely identical) to what is on the demo site but does not include any of the images or videos.

The theme is built on existing WordPress features so it’s very easy to use. Here is a link to the theme documentation for you to take a look at:

Hi, great theme! I have one question. Is it possible to change the static picture in the standarttemplate for pages into a gallery simular as a portfolio post? Thx! Frank

EugeneO

No it is not. You can use the stacked gallery layout on portfolio posts and standard posts but not on pages.

Default-user

That would be a nice feature for my intentions, if it is possible to use a gallery instead the static picture. perhaps one time it will be ;-)
