Hi guys, I bought the theme but can’t get any content of my pages to show up except the contact page. Please advise. I reviewed the tutorial multiple times…I also posted on the support forum.

Thanks, Dada

Hi

Can we add any ads on HTML space on this view?

http://demo.undsgn.com/themeselector/?theme=studiofolio

Thanks

Hi mtotrakan and thank you for interest! Can you please remove the iframe and paste the link again? I dont understand what view are you refer to? This link points to our theme selector. Thank you.

Default-user

Hoops sorry for that but when I remove that in the demo area we can’t see this part.

I can explain;

In demo please select vertical menu one then we see ’’This is also an optional HTML space where you could write a bit about yourself for example or post any information you want.’’ words.

Can we add ads or widget over here? I want to learn this.

Thanks for this great theme

undsgn

Hi mtotrakan, this is a free HTML are, so you can insert here manually but not via widgets. We have widgets in this layout up the footer (practically does not change almost nothing), here you can insert up to 6 widgets. Let me know if you need more infos.

Hi, I would like to purchase this theme. I’ve just a quick question, is it possible to add comments in portfolio posts?

Thanks!

undsgn

Hi andreaPress and thank you for interest! This is not an option of our theme but once purchased we can help you in our support forum. You just need to add a single line of code to activate them :)

Excellent theme undsgn! However I’m convinced it can be made even better without bloating it. As a photographer I’m really missing one way of viewing a photo shoot album, namely by horizontal scrolling. I and many of my photographer prefer to view an album by scrolling horizontally because you can see the images bigger, and you don’t have to click anywhere to see more (just scroll) and the viewer have controll of the speed of the viewing.

Look how smooth it is to watch photos in this theme: http://pexetothemes.com/demos/photolux_wp/#1675

I made a sketch of hoe it could look in studiofolio. This would just be one option of how to view the portfolio/album/shoot and shouldn’t be too difficult to implement.

Once again, great theme!

Hi FruitJuice and thank you for interest. I really can’t tell if this template will become part of future updates, but we take care of your suggestions. By now “masonry” templates is not the only one and we have other templates that dont needs a “click”: http://demo.undsgn.com/studiofolio/portfolio-1/fluid-scroll-down-sidebar-with-custom-background/ http://demo.undsgn.com/studiofolio/portfolio-1/fixed-sidebar/
Default-user

Thanks for quick reply! I understand you have the other viewing options where the viewer must scroll vertically. However, since todays standard is widescreen, It makes sense to scroll images horizontally because then you can view more photos at the same time than when scrolling vertically. As you notice when viewing photos in your links above, you can pretty much only see one photo at a time and most of the screen estate is just white room. This white room would be used to show more photos and would save the viewer some scrolling ache.

As a portfolio that’s really what you want. The viewers should be able to view your work quick and easy with minimal clicking/scrolling and your goal is to keep the viewer on the site for as long as possible. Clicking/waiting for load/etc. is enemy number one, and I think this theme is excellent and getting very close to a perfect portfolio experience.

Keep up the good work!

undsgn

We insert this template in next update! Stay tuned :)

Haha, you truly know how to take care of you potential costumers! Fantastic support bro! Can’t wait to see it!

Another request that would give some life to the otherwise static and sometimes boring front page would be a Ken Burns-effect. Either in the full-width slider or as fullscreen. It mezmerises the visitor straight away and turns a dead wall of photos into a moving piece of art. Look at this: http://themes.themegoods.com/keres_wp/wp-content/themes/keres/switcher.php?pp_homepage_style=kenburns

And here is the free code to implement it: http://www.willmcgugan.com/blog/tech/2011/2/26/ken-burns-effect-with-javascript-and-canvas/

I find myself just looking at the photos longer and more focused when the ken burns-effect is on. And it works on my android phone as well.

undsgn

Hi FruitJuice, no sorry this will not implemented as on option of our theme, this is outside our minimalistic approach. Sorry.

Hi, I’m encountering a pretty significant bug concerning uploading multiple images at once instead one at a time. Can you please help me? I get an error message next to each image and it aborts the upload process. “An error occurred in the upload. Please try again later.” I’ve installed this theme with different hosting companies and no plugins using WP 5.2 and still the error happens. I’ve never been able to get it to work. I have not modified the theme in any way. I wrote your forum a few times. I saw another person has this problem so I know I’m not the only one. I’d love to use this theme. The upload multiple images button won’t work either with the custom media uploader you have or the basic wordpress media uploader. When I switch to Twentytwelve theme everything works again. Its just this theme seems to cause this error. Please help? thanks- M

how are the different portfolios made?

undsgn

Hi venkatesaya and thank you for interest! With Studiofolio you can have unlimited portfolios (not a common feature), no matter what you need to insert. Let me know if this make sense for you or you need other infos!

venkatesaya

wanted to know if they are made with for example custom post types and with taxonomies or any other wp-’technique’ – I want to create complete separate independent portfolios

undsgn

Hi venkatesaya, portfolios are made from a custom post type and thanks to our system you can create unlimited different portfolios.

@spidermara – yes, exactly the same. My decision is the next: I use the WP “add media” button firstly in order to upload images to media-library. After uploading of image set I use the template’s “add multiple images” button for placing images into post.

P.S. Nonetheless there are 2 disadvantages in this nice theme concerning of the bulk uploading:

1. The images load to library as one large heap. The theme doesn’t attach images to the post – so, we cannot use the “uploaded to this post” possibility in WP library. I must scroll down whole wp-media-library in order to find and delete old images from some old posts. If I need do it in my other themes, it is enough to choose the “uploaded for this post” setting and all attached images are here.

2. When I upload my photos, for example, to the FB or to other image-services, I can say – the order of images is right. First uploaded image will show firstly, the last image will in the last. When I upload images to Studiofolio, I need reorder my photosets before uploading, because the Studiofolio places the first images to the end. But the sequence of photos is important for photographers. So, everytime I must prepare two sets: one for FB, and the other reordered version for my site.

Also I don’t understand this:

“Horizontal menu and positioned next to the logo (otherwise it will create a new line).

NOTE: In case of chosing the horizontal menu we suggest to apply the hack descripted here http://www.undsgn.com/support/discussion/594#Item_15 by adding custom CSS inside our Custom Style panel.”

If this moment is important, why this suggesting still doesn’t built into the theme?

Hope, this information message will help authors to make this successful template more userfrendly.

@FruitJuice Yes, you right. Just be informed, the Photolux theme shows jpg-images with additional compression (~60). This reduces the loading time, but the quality of photos too.

Hi, please note that this wall is dedicated to general comments

My message is exactly the kind of general comment regarding your nice theme, isn’t it?

In case I will need some purchase assistance I’m going to use your dedicated support forum, of course.

undsgn

Hi fotomaster, we try to bring comments on the forum that has search functions, so your advice will be useful also for other users in future, if you write on the wall what you write will be lost to the next step of this page and no one search for possible improvements on those pages. As we have suggested to the user this is a great solution.

Thank you for your feedback :)

Hi undsgn

I really like the look of this template, and it is on my short list it as the basis for an art platform.

However, there are two things that struck me: - The spinner graphics while the page is loading has white square background, which looks ugly on the light grey canvas - On page FLUID SIDEBAR POST WITH VIDEO in Notebook view, when scrolling, both the sidebar and even the top menubar (!) are stuttering heavily.

Is my browser broken, or are these issues on your to do list? Thank you

undsgn

Hi Abstractus and thank you for interest! 1) you can redesign the appearance of the loading to your needs with some easy CSS rules or you can find how to remove the loading background in our support forum, this is our design in order to support also pages with images background… 2) i think you refer to the fixed sidebar and menu option, that lock thoso elements on scroll, you can deactivate this option if you dont like it… I hope i have understand what you mean.

Default-user

Thank you for your impressively swift answer! 1) ok, so I can use a spinner with transparent background, right? (in my opinion it’s really ugly in the demo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/34zxkasm00x4u0x/screensho%202013-07-27%20at%2012.39.56.png) 2) I DO like the option of fixed sidebar and menu. However, what I see is not fixed in terms of constantly at the same place, but hopping up and down with every scrolling https://www.dropbox.com/s/98qx5ydji8oz5al/2013-07-27_13-30-04.mp4

undsgn

2) what browser and operating system are you? It’s the first time I see this… Have you tried to remove the theme selector toolbar?

Default-user

Safari 6.0.5 on Mac OS X 10.8.4, in the Notebook view. If I remove the theme selector toolbar, it’s switching to Desktop view, which has worked also before while the toolbar was there.

undsgn

Hi abstractus, you just need to remove the toolbar and everything is fine (the “desktop” or “notebook” are only different screen size). Is not so?

Default-user

hm… when removing the toolbar it switches to a view which has worked already before. If it’s really just the screen size, then there must be something with that specific preview :-/

Sorry for bothering you, I have some functional question, which is really important to me. I use Toolset (WP Types and Views) for Custom Fields and Custom Post Types for my projects (maybe you know this plugin set?). As I read that your Portfolio is a Custom Post Type as well – will they conflict, or work together in great harmony? Can I use the theme for a multilingual site with WPML, or is there something that might crash?

undsgn

Hi abstractus, no there is not a bug with that view, just remove theme selector and scale your browser to same dimensions. Everything is fine (something very nerd to explain here). I dont know about “Toolset”, I really cant tell you, by now there are more than 23.000 WordPress plugins out there.

The theme is awesome and I have few last pre-sale question:

1. Max No of Portfolio In the demo there is portfolio 1 & 2, is there any upper limit of the number of portfolios?

2. Gallery Are taggs or categories supported in Gallery

3. Comments Does portfolio post support comments of wp or can I add fb comment plugin?

4. Like Button Does the theme support facebook open graph? Can I add a facebook like button on every portfolio post??

Thanks!

Regards, Vivienne

undsgn

Hi smilevv and thank you for interest! 1. You can create how much portfolios do you need. 2. No sorry. 3. You can enable that with a single line of PHP code (search the forum or ask for help on support forum), I see a lot of users have installed FB add-ons. 4. Yes I think you can as well (this is not an option of our theme).

Is there any way to make the pages (or page content) load in AJAX?

Other themes are doing this (which allows me to use a music player) at the bottom of the website. The music player can play continuously and without interruption…but only if pages load in AJAX.

Is this an easy fix? Can you help?

Is it possible to have a thumbnail view of the full-screen slideshow on permanently?

With full size image slides, is it possible to alter to size and text of descriptions and create links on any?

undsgn

Hi kingzley and thank you for interest! What is a slideshow on permanently, can you explain better? Yes you can create also link but you need to alter size with custom CSS (easy thanks to our admin CSS custom panel).

Default-user

Sorry its ok, the thumbnail view menu at the bottom stays on during the slideshow.

Also, is it possible to have a background slideshow on a page?

With the layout isotope…how do the images align..does it happend automatically?

undsgn

Hi kingzley, no you cannot have a background slideshow by default, you need to customize our files in order to have this. Yes with isotope the images align is auto, isn’t it? Maybe I dont understand your request…

Hi

I am looking carefully at this theme. Design is simple and beautiful – great work.

The featured sliders appearance on the homepage look very basic on the demo. It looks like you can only add a single background image with a simple overlay caption. My questions are:

1. Is there an Edit CSS option to change the captions font, sizes, position, etc? 2. Can the caption be multilayer (e.g. two or three lines of different text with a button) – rather than just a single line of text like the demo appears to show? 3. If 1 and/or 2 is not possible, can users utilise a third party slider plugin (e.g. Revolution Slider or Royal Slider) and include the third party slider code on the homepage in place of the standard theme slider? If so, where would the third party slider code be added in the theme?

Thanks DD

undsgn

Hi MIssDD and thank you for interest! By now we have choose a minimalist approach for this theme and you cannot have other sliders (e.g. Revolution Slider or Royal Slider), in every way this is a good idea and we are going to upgrade our theme very soon :) Now you need to change our CSS file in order to style slider caption. Let me know if you need more infos.

Default-user

Thank you Guys. I’ll look forward to the update. Then purchase straight away!

Two other questions:

1. I noticed in the demo that the current slider remains in all responsive versions – is there an option for the slider to turn off when the page appear at certain size (say 400px wide)? – this would keep the layout clean on mobiles screens.

2. On the masonry grid, is there an option to show the blog category inside the item wrapper. If not, I think this would be a great addition as it allows viewers to quickly identify posts they may be interested in reading within the masonry layout. Please take a look at http://readwrite.com/ as a beautiful, clean example of what I mean.

Thanks ? xx

undsgn

Hi MIssDD, 1) very easy to add with just a single line of CSS code, very easy. 2) I really dont understand sorry, please send us a private email and explain better.

To quickly clarify:

Below the thumbnails on the demo homepage I can see the “title” and “excerpt” of the blog posts. Can your theme also display things like “category name”, “date” and “author” below the thumbnail.

Displaying the “category” is most important to me. As it is helpful to users when browsing over the homepage. As shown on the site in the above link I attached.

Hope that is clear,

undsgn

Hi MIssDD, after purchased ask in our support forum we can support this very easy modification, you just need a single line of code :)
