Ohhh man. Please help! This template is truly amazing. The one thing I’ve been struggling with for 2 days is how to get more than one filterable portfolio on one page! I can only ever get one to work. The reason I need to do this is because I have multiple tabs on one page, and in each tab i need a filterable list.

I’ve consulted the documentation here (http://www.gethifi.com/blog/a-jquery-plugin-to-create-an-interactive-filterable-portfolio-like-ours), but I have a feeling there’s the odd bug in the filterable.js file (hard-coded names). Please can somebody send me a very basic example of more than one filterable portfolio on one page?

Hi Im using this theme as a portfolio and am using the portfolio template to show work. the work varies alot in dimesion but i want the thumbnails to be all the same size. so i made thumbnail images and set them as the featured image, but that shows up in the lightbox… is there a way I can NOT show the featured image in the lightbox.

Heya Lucas! Hmmm – I just re-checked the code and it looks like it attempts to exclude the post thumbnail (featured image) if you’re using the Lightbox Link in the Skeleton Post options… have you tried this out yet? If that doesn’t work, I’ll need to take a closer look… this is a tough one since a lot of this section is automated by a default WP gallery call and it’s tough to do any special exclusions as I recall.

Hi. My post may have gotten lost in the fray. Here it is:

I love this theme. Question: How can you get the default layout of portfolio to be in the Hybrid layout, the one with some text under the photo. Right now it always goes to Grid layout. I’m using portfolio-4.html. Thanks!

Hi,

I purchased this and when I upload it to wordpress it seems it can not find the style.css file. Even though i followed these steps: http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/

It still isn’t working. I found this very sad :( I hope you can help me!

I am trying to accomplish something that should be easy, but I can’t quite seem to get it correct. I simply need 3-col portfolio with the sidebar. Can you please advise? Thank you!

Heya Ar! This isn’t actually as easy as you might imagine since there’s a TON of markup in the portfolio template alone that is going to throw a wrench into this for ya. I honestly don’t even know where I’d start on this customization since it’d quite literally require you to rewrite a bunch of Javascript, jQuery, CSS and the HTML markup creating that template… in short, it’s really just coded for the full width of the page… you’re more than welcome to try adding in the sidebar snippet from page.php and recoding a lot of this, but it’s well outside what I can help with since it’d easily take me a couple days to get it right myself ;)

Your best bet might be to just use the WP image gallery shortcode on a standard page… but I’m guessing that you’ve got a good reason for wanting the filters and such, hehe.

Cheers! B

Idea! What about adding a Pinterest button along with the current Twitter and FB buttons at the bottom of the enlarged photos? Pinterest is the hottest social photo “pinning” sites going at the moment. Code added in the jquery file?

hmm… if I am logged into FB, the FB share icon at the bottom of the enlarged photo has my profile picture, but says “Swit” – what is that?!? Not my profile name. Where is it coming from and how do I change this? Thank you!

Thanks for the heads up Ar! I’m actually considering pulling out the lightbox plugin that we’re using entirely. The short story is that I’m not entirely sure how the lightbox uses that FB link anyways… it’s a bit of a mystery as they haven’t documented it well at their site either ;) B

Well now, that makes me feel better. I guess ;-) When I couldn’t get the right combo of html/css – I began to think part of this must be in the jquery. Unfortunately, this will require too much time for this project. No worries. I find an alternative solution. Thanks for the quick response!

There was an extra comma in skeleton-key.js on line 213 that was breaking it. The slider is displaying in IE7 now, but the Superfish dropdown submenu items are expanding behind the slider and feature boxes.

Hello Brandon Which widget-pugin do you use on your blog-post-template on the top of the sidebar with the 4 125×125 ads? I have tried this with this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp125/ – but the pictures are not shown side by side, although I have set it on “2 columns”. Look here: http://www.velofahrer.ch/blog/ When I take 4 ads, it’s the same problem – they are shown one upon the other. Could you help me?

Did you read the some other questions I asked you some days ago? Maybe you’re busy this days – don’t worry, I can wait, but would be glad about an answer.

Have a good time, Dominik

Heya Cannon! Those are actually just a text widget with raw HTML added in :)

Oh, and there was a gap of a couple days last week where I was totally out of commission with some real-life stuff – I’m working on going through as many of them as I can today/tomorrow.

Cheers! Brandon

Hey Brandon, thanks a lot. In that case, could you please mail me the raw HTML ?

Do you know the WP125 -Plugin? This could be a good alternative for super skeleton – but my problem is, how written, that the pictures are shown one upon the other and not side by side. Maybe you have a solution for this, cause I would prefer this plugin.

Have a good time, Dominik

Can I change the size of the slider on the front page?

Just upload different height images ;) The width isn’t changeable without a fair amount of recoding, but the slider will automatically adapt to the height of the tallest images used.

B,

I built my first site with super skeleton and with a little effort it’s working out great. Now I need to set up an email marketing campagin for an entity where 90 percent of it viewers will be using a smart phone. I was wondering if you have built any responsive templates for constat contact or failing that anything like an post card optimized for a smart phone? If not can you possibly make a recommendation? I’m looking at constat contact as the platform right now but I’m not married to anything. I basically need a single page post optomized for a smart phone that i can use with constant contact or other provider Thanks again for a great theme.

Kindest

Jack

Heya Jack! Great question – I don’t actually have any templates ready for email – but I’d highly highly recommend hunting through the amazing list of templates by other authors here. I usually stick close to the highest rated templates as a guide for quality ;) B

Hi there, just looked through template and looks really great – however upon reading thru comments notice that most are using this via WordPess? My question is, is this able to be used via Dreamweaver as html (coding looks like it can), as sure that is what it says on main page, but really unsure as do not use Wordpress. I am new(ish) to this and looking for great design which is fuly responsive and simple to use by a ‘new’ person- and this looks like it could be? Also, if designed for WordPress, does this mean that only WordPress can use WordPress designed sites and not DWeaver etc? Sorry for stupid questions, but wld like to know prior to purchasing. Thanks for patience. J

I think this has been asked before but can you NOT show the featured image in the lightbox?

Thanks again.

Is it possible to make some youtube videos for HTML templates? You already created some videos for Wordpress, but HTML seems to be more difficult.
