Just have some pre-purchase question,

1. Can i show some items from the portfolio on the homepage of this theme? Just exactly the way they are showing here:

http://demo.themezilla.com/sparks/portfolio-3-columns/

2. Any plans for adding some shortcodes to this theme to show buttons, icons etc?

Thanks

ThemeZilla

Hi,

1. To bring them in automatically would require some changes to both the HTML and CSS. It’s possible to do, just not something which is included.

2. No, we don’t ship themes with shortcodes. We have a free shortcode plugin you can use here http://www.themezilla.com/plugins/zillashortcodes/

After i buy the theme, Would be able to help so i can show the latest 4 items from porfolio on homepage exactly the way they are showing on portfolio page?

Thanks!

ThemeZilla

A modification of that size would be exactly that, a modification. We could point you in the right direction but wouldn’t be able to carry out the work for you or give you the exact code required. You might find you need the help of a developer to customise the theme to that level.

Hello, great theme!

would it be possible to remove the similar projects and the quote bars from the portfolio page?

Thanks!

ThemeZilla

Hi, in short yes, both of those can be removed :)

Awesome theme :)

ThemeZilla

Thanks :)

Love the Themezilla themes!

One question: Do you include support for audio files? or possibly recommend a plugin you have worked with?

Thanks!

ThemeZilla

Hi, yes we allow you to upload your own audio files. You can also embed audio from sites such as SoundCloud.

Hi Orman,

Purchased for my portfolio site. Its very clean and professional. Just one question;

How can I show portfolio items on homepage? with any widget or automatic?

Thanks.

ok fixed.

Any plans on making Sparks Retina ready?

ThemeZilla

Hi,

There are a number of plugins to choose from which will enable WordPress to output the appropriate images for Retina support. There are no images in the actual design of Sparks, so a plugin would be the only requirement.

Hi Orman

Theme looks great. Thinking of purchasing it for a project but I can’t seem to find a search function. Has this theme got a search feature.

Thanks

ThemeZilla

Hi,

Yes the theme includes search. You can place a search widget in any of the widget locations; sidebar or footer. You could also place it in other areas by editing the template files directly.

Hello. Great theme.

I’d like to know if this theme supports password protection for projects within the portfolio section.

Thanks in advance.

ThemeZilla

Hi, yes, you can set passwords on portfolio projects.

Hi Orman,

Fantastic theme. I am using the testimonials widget in the same place you have it in the demo and it seems a bit broken, it doesnt rotate between the items. Using wordpress 3.7.1 and your latest update.

Any Ideas?

Cheers Dan

anyway of changing this easily to a 1280px grid system?

ThemeZilla

Hi, it shouldn’t take too much work, you would need to alter the CSS. How easy that would be would depend on your experience with CSS.

Does this theme have any icon library support built-in? If not, does the Themezilla Shortcode plugin offer this functionality? Thanks in advance.

ThemeZilla

Hi, the short answer is no, on both counts I’m afraid. It certainly wouldn’t be difficult to add an icon font to any theme via CSS.

Thinking of buying this theme for my business, few questions though.. In the portfolio section can you add a description / title for each indv image? And can you edit the look of the slideshow ? Thanks

Hi, Is it possible to choose the order of the portfolio items regardless of when I added them? Can I for example add an item in between two others at any point? Thanks in advance

ThemeZilla

Hi, yes you can choose the order from the admin panel.

The icons you have on the front page. Are those part of an icon set, which one? Is it included?

ThemeZilla

Hi, you can find them here http://geomicons.com/

Much appreciated for all the hard work put into this. Is there any way to get a .sql dump of the entire demo site? Would be great to get it setup matching the demo site right off the bat and then customize from there. I bet others would enjoy a similar approach too…

ThemeZilla

Hi, yes you can grab the demo content from the support forum http://www.themezilla.com/support/

Hi again,

A question about the Zillashortcodes plugin that’s included. Can the buttons be used on the frontpage? Cause I tried that with another theme and it didn’t work. Maybe because in that theme the front page didn’t have a “page” or “post” ?

ThemeZilla

Hi, yes the buttons can be used in the main content area of the homepage.

It would be a little bit nice if the docs had some instructions to make the theme look like the demo one….

These docs look like someone was asleep at the job. Or something.

ThemeZilla

Hi, you can grab the demo content in the support forums http://www.themezilla.com/support/

You can also ask us any questions you might have about getting setup.

Orman, you’re one of the most respectable authors here. Which gave me confidence to buy the theme, like many others, probably. But the documentation of the theme seems like a template on its own, and that’s a shame. Why can’t the link to the demo content be in the docs? Anyway…

ThemeZilla

The link could not be included in the docs as the URL changes from time to time. Older purchases would not have the most relevant URL.

Hello,

Great theme! I like it a lot. Can you advise me on the following:

I am in the process of setting up my homepage. There seems to be a small issue however; First, I created a page and set it as my static homepage. I selected the “home” template and saved the page. Now I want to have the page title and caption appear but it does not appear. I filled out the “Custom page caption” box for this page and it does not appear. I also have the page title and it does not appear.

However, if I change the template from Home to Default Template… The Title of the page and the Page Caption appear just fine on the homepage.

I want the page title and caption to work on the home template because I want to also use the home page column widgets which is not available for the default template.

Looking forward to hearing back!

Note: I ended up finding out that I can go around this issue by using the pages description area… (i.e. entering my title with H1 tags)

Dormant theme? e.g last update July 2013 …

ThemeZilla

An update hasn’t been required i.e. it is still compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

Hello,

If i click a second time on the portfolio page some of the images are not showing? This happens mostly in IE(10). What can be the problem?

Kind regards.
