great theme…one question…is there a possibility to show the contact google maps in grey? (saturation -100)

undsgn

Hi Rowroyce! There are some plugins around or custom scripts to hack GMap layout. We don’t provide map customization with our theme.

Sorry RowRoyce support is offered only on our forum and unfortunately we can not provide support for customization requests. Write on the forum and we give you a starting point.

Hi there, I think this is going to be the perfect theme for my client. I’ve installed it and started to upload some images to the Media Library but I keep getting an error message (index1.jpeg” has failed to upload due to an error) for example.

Also, on the site itself I see “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/41/10325041/html/wp-content/themes/studiofolio/templates/front-page.php on line 34”

Can you provide any assistance? I’m hosting at GoDaddy and have never seen such an issue.

Thanks! Matt

Thank you, I just posted a new discussion there.

Hi, just a question before buying. Does this theme support child-themes? Thank you very much.

undsgn

Hi Wildstylers, thank you for interest in our theme! Yes Studiofolio is child-themes compatible.

Hi,

Love this theme. looked for a live sample of a full width slider with text layered overtop and grid portfolio that opens to lightbox below it but can’t see anything in the live preview. is there a link or sample you can post?

Also want to know if there’s a parallax element included or if that’s an easy add-on afterwards.

VERY new to WP themes; your patience is appreciated! thanks

undsgn

Hi Samtallo, thank you for interest in our theme! We can provide a link for you, drop a few line to our email and we can show a live example of fullwidth slider. We don’t have parallax on this site, sorry: Studiofolio is a minimal and clean website.

Hi guys! My programmer and I were looking at your theme trying to figure out if it has everything we need. Tons of options so very cool! The only thing we are concerned about is that when you click on a photo that is full-screen it doesn’t open well and moves up and down. Also, is there anywhere where we can view the homepage slideshow you just created? And last, will you add a slider (small slider at the bottom with photos so customers can click on it to view rather than just moving with arrows) to the portfolio/gallery sections or not? If you don’t know what this is, please visit fullscreen slideshow for Expression. Thanks!

Default-user

Yeah, it’s looking more like what I need. Can the full-screen homepage be made to work like a slideshow though? (a slideshow is something that moves on it’s own, without arrows). Yes a slider is where the link is. Could I link from a gallery photo to this slider page? Is there a limit on how many photos fit in this slider, or will I move onto a next set of photos by clicking on an arrow next to the slider? Is it possible to have the full-screen image and the slider on top? If you cannot create it, is it something my programmer could change? (for example: http://themeforest.net/item/expression-photography-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/2855595 or http://themeforest.net/item/autofocus-photography-wp-theme-with-geotagging/full_screen_preview/3282259). You guys have the best blog and other features though!

undsgn

The slideshow can be easily switched to autoplay with infinite loop. Yes you can link from a gallery photo. No there are no limits for how many photos but it will not move into the next item if you mean that. The last question I didn’t really get, you need to remove the frame on top before you send the link to that page.

Default-user

When I click on a photo for full-screen image it moves up and down and doesn’t fit the screen well. Can this be fixed? About the slider question: I had found the perfect slider/fullscreen slideshow in theme Expression, but you have much better blog and other features that I could really use. So I would like to see if I can create theirs and would like to know if my programmer could create a full-screen slider/slideshow like Expression. Theirs fills up the entire screen both horizontally and vertically and has a small photo slider at the bottom that overlaps the photo (not sure what you mean by frame on top but will try to resend): http://themeforest.net/item/expression-photography-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/2855595. If this doesn’t work, it’s theme expression full-screen and full-width slideshow. Autofocus is similar. Thanks so much!!!

We are happy to announce that Studiofolio 1.2 is out and ready for download.

The main new features includes: - homepage fullscreen slideshow - fullscreen gallery slideshow - password protection to any type of posts - possibility to have the lightbox thumbnails strip

We have also made the construction of the homepage even more flexible and easy.

Enjoy!

What you are seeing the is the panning effect and it can be activated or deactivated per images as you wish. We are probably gonna include a fullscreen button on the next updates.

Default-user

Problem with full-screen button is that not everyone sees it and ends up viewing smaller version. I still think if you guys had a full-screen slideshow with thumbnails that are smaller you’d sell a lot. (that opened up automatically full-screen). Nobody has a good a slideshow as Expression and your blog and custom features like individual customization and fluid sidebar with gallery, (which are all awesome by the way! I can think of a million uses for this). But I see either boring blog and custom features and good slide-shows or magazine full-screen, not so good slideshows… and I’ve looked at a lot of themes! Thanks for your support, it’s fast I really like that!

This is a nice theme and I’m debating between this one and the Hypershot theme. One thing that prevents me from buying your theme is the slow PageSpeed Score of 68/64 in comparison to the Hypershot theme which is very snappy – reaching PageSpeed Score of 89/84. I like the flexibility of your theme and I would opt for it over the Hypershot theme if you would optimize the speed to at least 85/80.

undsgn

Hi innomind,

thanks for evaluation our theme. We were for a while in development mode when you done the test so some service where off for a while.

That said, I don’t know with which tool are you testing but using http://tools.pingdom.com/ Studiofolio is actually beating Hypershot 83 to 81. What’s penalising Studiofolio in Google PageSpeed is the size of the images. With Studiofolio we can always deliver good quality images because of that reason, in both big screens and retina displays, feature that Hypershot theme doesn’t have (I personally have a laptop with retina display and Hypershot doesn’t come out very well). Since this theme is designed for creative portfolios, we believe that kind of quality is vital. For other parameters considered, in the PageSpeed, there are some depending anyway from your Wordpress and Server configuration rather then the theme itself and can be improved by using plugins like W3 total cache.

Hi!

I have update the Theme to 1.2 but i can’t found how i can setup the fullscreen slideshow on start? Thanks!!

johannes1000

Thx!

Hey! So I love your theme other than the full-screen slideshow, you have no automatic fulls-screen slideshow with thumbnails. (and the homepage one doesn’t fill the whole screen, though sure we could modify). An expand button is not the same. I’m only asking this because you seem to add things upon suggestions which is awesome! But the only reason I would go with Hypershot or Expression is because they do have a really professional looking slideshow and thumbnails that can be used as porfolio. So, is it possible that you will add a full-screen (vertical and horizontal) slideshow with thumbnails in a future update? (if you have time plz view what they offer). If so, I will wait for your theme or purchase it now. Yours has the best blog and other features, so congratulations!

undsgn

Hi MagsArb! Thank you for interest, we are working on a fullscreen slideshow with horizontal thumbs and fullscreen mode at this exact moment :) I hope that time to tomorrow we are ready to publish the update.

Default-user

Cool I’m excited to see it! Thank you!

Does this theme have password protected portfolios/galleries available?

undsgn

Yes you can protect all types of posts included portfolios (the whole portfolio or a single item) and galleries.

Does this theme support pagination or continuous loading? Also when adding the images, will the theme automatically create the thumbnails ?

undsgn

Hi Farzad_panahi, thank you for interest in our theme! Do you refer to Infinite Loading? Yes, where in homepage you see the “Load More” button you can choose by an option in our admin to enable the Infinite Scroll instead! You need to create the poster image of thumbs, we believe that you can have much more control over the look of the site, is an extremely fast task which makes much more control and free of creativity.

Will this theme work with the UberMenu plugin?

Thanks.

undsgn

Hi Snitemuseum! I replied to your e-mail, check.

Hi, great job with this theme. Just one question before buying it: on the portfolio page is it possible to modify the height of each item? I can see in your source code css rules for width of each item (width1, 2, 4 and 6) but what about the height? I really need the possibility to show “vertical” images too on my project page (for esthetic reasons). I know that isotope can deal with this. If yes, i buy it on the go ;) Best regards from france.

undsgn

Hi Whitewater, thank you for interest in our theme! Sure you can! It’s our choice show items in the same proportions but you can put any height you want.

whitewater

Perfect! You’ll have a new customer in the next few hours. ;)

Great theme! Congratulations! I need to know about the SEO in this theme… I note that this theme without Javascript doesn’t work. Then, I think that the crawlers will have serious problem. For me, this point is very important. I note that this theme doesn’t crawl for Google, but I think that the problem is the “noindex” in meta robots. I want to see some real sites in order to evaluate the crawl in search engines. Thank you!

undsgn

Hi Astromario! Studiofolio is super SEO optimized. The JavaScript has nothing to do with indexing, the theme works but of course some layout can not exist without it. You see “no-index” and cannot find the pages in the search engines because inside the admin of WordPress as you know there is an option to not index the website. In fact, we set “Search Engine Visibility” on “Discourage search engines from indexing this site”. This is just our choice because there is no reason to index a theme with fake contents :) So do not worry about this, Studiofolio is also designed for the search engines! Let me know if you need more info.

Hi, only just one question, Can I have differents passwords for each hidden page or I only need 1 password to see all of them?

undsgn

Hi Artoostudios! Sure no problem, different content different password :)

Just a few more questions please. Is the blog example the gallery for your blogs (I mean, will the main page of the gallery look like this? Masonry and full-width screen with columns)? I also know you were going to create a full-screen slideshow with small thumbnails at bottom. Right now I have my site set up with 6 different photos of the different types of photography I do, if you click on the photo you go to full-screen slideshow with thumbnails. Could I do this from the gallery? Link photos from the gallery to a slideshow? Can I put words over a gallery photo as a title? Also, could I link a gallery photo to another gallery and then then link one of those photos to the fluid gallery with sidebar? I had a great idea of something to do with your fluid galleries with sidebar. Thanks!

undsgn

Is now available v1.3 of Studiofolio.

Default-user

Default-user
