Discussion on Studiofolio: A Versatile Portfolio and Blog Theme

Hi,

First of all: superb template. Some pre-buy questions:

1/ When testing on the ipad I noticed some annoying behavior with the grid/thumbnails hover. The hover effect works great on desktop but doesn’t work nice on tablet or touch devices, because a hover action actually doesn’t exist. So what happens is that you see a blink of the title and zoom effect before the page loads. When browsing a bit around this becomes quickly annoying. If you swipe down you have the already thumbnail zooming in/out as soon as you touch. The swipe gesture doesn’t get recognized in first instance as a swipe because it has the hover class activated first.

Isn’t there a fallback or css change in the media queries where the hover effect gets disabled and replaced by simply showing the titles on top or bottom of the thumbs?

This template for instance ( http://tinyurl.com/9clsuq7 ) has a nice fallback for touch devices (you have to watch it on a tablet/phone), exactly what I would like to see here, to make it 99% perfect :).

2/ Is there a load more function? I imagine pages with 100’s of thumbs slow down cpu. I already felt this when browsing through the demo.

Thank you in advance for any feedback

Hi Spiv and thank you for interest! 1) Yes you right we have forgot to implement a stupid fallback, we suggested to someone on the forum how to fix but we forgot to make the change. Time 1-2 days and we upload the new update with this fix, thanks again for pointing that out. 2) Yes possible, scroll down our homepage or grid blog page and you’ll find a “More Items…” button in the bottom left corner under the thumbs.

Great to read that. You have my buy as soon as my client approves the concept ;)

Congratulations on a very dynamic design. I am a photographer and need to feature my images on the homepage with some text/content that google can read for SEO purposes…..with that premise, I have some questions, so please bare with me:

1/ On the “Homepage with custom message” example you show on the features page of your demo… can that home page have an automatic slider (moving slideshow)? For example:the girl with the gray background…can that be a slideshow but larger in size? 2/ Can that “Homepage with custom message” just be and extra large slider/slideshow only (no blog thumbnails around it) but still have the welcome message right above it? 3/ is there a limit to how much can be written in the “welcome message” area…or is it unlimited? 4/ If you change the menu to a vertical position is it possible to place some text or written content like a brief “about us” description in the menu tool bar?....Can google read that for SEO purposes if it is possible? 5/ Does your theme come with textured backgrounds to choose from or is it just a color picker for the background? 6/ How does your support work once the theme is purchased?...forum?...email?....other?

Thanks in advance for your help with these questions.

Hi bronco7777,

thanks for the appreciations.

1. yes you can have a slideshow in home as showed here http://demo.undsgn.com/studiofolio/fullscreen/ and you can choose to have it as automatic.

2. yes you can still have the message, all the different options can in fact be combined.

3. there is not a limit to the ‘welcome message area’.

4. yes you can have a text inside the vertical menu, we will show you how and that is of course read by Google.

5. For the background you can pick a color or having a background image as big image or a pattern that is repeating but we don’t have included any textured, you have to upload them.

6. for support we have our own forum

undsgn…appreciate the way you demonstrate patience with all these questions. I’m loving your theme more and more. Just a few more questions:

Here are some examples of what I want to accomplish with the layout of my homepage: 1/ In this site http://stephaniecourt.com/#/gallery/ I like the main home page…not the first static full screen “click here” landing page that appears when you first arrive…but rather the page that follows that has the vertical menu/task bar, then a medium sized slider and then 6 large thumbnails that link to different areas of the website. This is exactly what we want with just a brief text area for a small welcome/about us message. Could we achieve that look using the example you show on your demo here http://demo.undsgn.com/themeselector/?theme=studiofolio ? Or would it be another template within your theme?

Would you be able to help us put this together?

Here is one more example that may help communicate what we are looking to do with your theme: http://electricrenewal.sitehousedesigns.com/

But really the the layout we prefer is the first one mentioned above.

In advance, thanks again for your help!

Hi guys, I really love your template, it’s superb!!

I have only one pre-buy question: - Is there a way to disable the mouseover zoom on images?

thank you very much Barbara

undsgn

Ciao Barbara and thank you for interest! Yes, of sure, it’s not an admin option but in our forum we have illustrate how to disable this effect multiple times :) Let me know if you need more infos.

Hi, I found a webpage link on your comments from someone who purchased. Im wondering if it would be possible to get the following similar elements directly from your admin panel, or if advanced customization was necessary to achieve it

Thanks

undsgn

Hi Thempro an thank you for interest! 1) possible, it’s our mixed-homepage layout, check it in our demo. 2) no admin, very easy with CSS. 3) User customization. Where you find those images? Thank you

Hello,

I’d like to purchase this theme but is it possible to have just an image in the gallery not linked to a post, and also a block containing social icons?

Thanks

undsgn

Hi jsl418 and thank for your interest first! We have several type of galleries, what you need exactly? What is a gallery with just an image? I really don’t understand you :)

Default-user

I would like to have some of the blocks on the home page to just be an image, and not images linked/connected to a blog post. Also I’d like one of the blocks on the home page to have links to a social page.

Similar to this layout: http://starter.com/

undsgn

Hi jsl418, sorry this is not possible by default. You can do it according to your skills using a completely blank template we have but you cannot directly in the admin.

I have been working with a lot of portfolio type themes and none of them offered so many single-project templates. Centered, fluid, slideshow, stack of images. Navigation bar on top or maybe as a left sidebar? If You need the most versatile portfolio – studiofolio got it all. I highly recommend it for people, who like to take control of how their website look. And if You change your mind – just tweak the options – without the need to buy another theme. Great work guys.

undsgn

Hi artbeard,

thank you very much for this feedback. You have really caught the deep sense of being of Studiofolio and we are thrilled that you appreciate it that since we have worked really hard to could offer one of the most complete portfolio theme on Themeforest.

No problem, that’s my honest opinion. In a lot of themes when you upload more than one image to project it automatically become slideshow. I’m really glad, that in Studiofolio I actually can choose how to present my images. And for the amount of work You put to make all that project templates, those mathematical calculations, when it comes to isotope version – I think it should cost more than 40 bucks;)

Hi Bronco7777, can you please mail a screenshot patchwork made with pieces of our demo, it’s not really easy to understand your needs, if you are looking for a so precise layout I have to understand visually before confirm. In any case, remember this will depend on the size of the monitor, try to climb the browser is on our demo and on their site to see how it behaves on mobile devices too.

Hi there,

To start with, I really like the theme and its design. Nice job guys! I was wondering why my social icons do not appear on my website? I’ve put the link of the facebookpage into Studiofolio -> Theme Options -> Social Options and saved it but they do not appear on the homepage or other pages. The website is www.justinantwerp.com

I hope you can help me out, thanks!

Hi jeroeeeen! Have your read our docs or watched our video tutorials? You have not installed the required font. I remember that if you need post purchase assistance we kindly ask to use our dedicated support forum that is constantly monitored: http://www.undsgn.com/support/

Hey There

Somehow the Button Icons on the Bottom of my page are missing ? How can I ad some of my own or how can I get the arrows that you have in the demo to work ?

Please let me know

Kind Regards

Robin

please register on your support forum http://www.undsgn.com/support/ there you will find that and other eventual answers of your questions.

Thank you

Hi,

I noticed you added the thumb fallback, but when testing on ipad I didn’t notice any difference. Or is the update not online yet?

Cheers

S

undsgn

Hi Spiv,

yes the update is online and the fallback means that there is not hover effect on devices, so it makes all more smooth. If you don’t see it can be due to your device cache memory.

nasty safari cache it was ;)

Sent you an email per your request.

Hi, i bought the theme, and i really like it! Quick question though, is there a easier way to re-sort my portfolio items? I’ve added them in random order first, but i would like to rearrange them.

Hi Devs

Today I tried installing WooCommerce as a plugin for eCommerce, but got an error while trying. In the backend of my site, WooCommerce states that the theme (Studiofolio) does not declare itself as a WooCommerce solution/theme. WooCommerce does offer a workaround, but unfortunately that involves editing the functions.php file by adding hooks. As I am not a coder/developer, I was wondering whether you guys might add support for WooCommerce in the near future ?

Kind regards

Edwin

Thanks for the theme. It’s a great release! I’m just facing problem on the home page. I get the whole content of the featured posts instead of excerpts. And I dont have the “read more” link that appears on your demo. Any suggestion for me?

Thx a lot

Hi there, I come back to wonderful Studiofolio theme in order to buy it. My customer asks about of the audio frontpage feature (something likes here). Or, maybe, you can offer some audio solution for Studiofolio theme, that will be great.

Thank you in advance!

undsgn

Hi Fotomaster, are talking about the soundtrack that you only listen in the home? We do not have anything built especially because it is really out of a trend and out of our tastes. We have up to 6 footer widgets you don’t see in our demo, maybe some plugin can resolve.

fotomaster

Thanks for answer! Yes, I agree with you about of the “out of a trend”, really. But sometimes it isn’t so easy to reject customer’s requirements. Ok, I will try to find the solution with this, thank you!

I would like to buy and use Studiofolio for my site:

http://Big-Apple.TV

What I need to know… is there any kind of pagination when I implement e.g. 300 videos in one video gallery… because most probably the loading time of the gallery page could be worse with 300 videos… :-)

Hi Gogo6969, thank you for interest! For sure, you can decide how many items to show page, take a look at our homepage or blogpage in the bottom left corner and click “More Items…”

Hi, I’m new to WP, so this may be a daft question, but I’m trying to open this theme in WP local using instant WP and it’s telling me that the theme is incomplete, and the style sheet is missing. I unzipped the themeforest folder in the InstantWP themes folder, and again tried to unzip the studiofolio folder, but it’s telling me that I need a password to unlock some of the files.

Are these related, and what’s the password I need?

Thanks in advance, Nick.

undsgn

Hi nickrawle! Please check from another machine because there is no password and no one have never have this issue, maybe your download is incomplete, try re-download. Please note that support is offered only via our support forum and this wall is dedicated to pre-sale or general comments: http://www.undsgn.com/support/ So open a new thread and we care to support the solution.

Hello. I am interested in purchasing this theme. I want to show my products(hats) in a portfolio them but I also want to sell the item. Can I use the paypal plugin or widget?

undsgn

Hi bernicembutler,

nice to hear that you are interested in Studiofolio. As long as the plugin gives you the possibility to use shortcodes yes, you can use it with Studiofolio.

Hi, Considering this theme, I can’t see what possibilities around about color variations ? Thanks.

undsgn

Hi Ftrifiro and thank you for interest. Studiofolio is a minimal theme that comes with 2 skins: light (demo) and a dark one. What color schemes are you searching for?
