gorgeous. Are all effects css? or is there jQuery, javascript or ajax?

omnisapien

and also can I use a different name than Portfolio in the permalinks, linking those floppy thumbnails to external URLs?

onioneye

Hi there, again!

Thank your for taking an interest in the Tao theme!

Regarding your questions:

1) The majority of the effects are pure CSS; that’s how much browsers have made progress lately. There are some minor javascript fallbacks as well though.

2) You can rewrite the URL to say something other than “portfolio”. I guess this should only take one or two lines of code customization. However, I am not sure why you mention external URLs? It seems to me that you are under the impression that the theme utilizes AJAX to load the items on the same page, which is not the case with this theme, unlike the previous theme you bought of me, codenamed “HyperMind”. Am I right?

Sincerely,

omnisapien

Hi, Yes. I have a very specific website I am working on that links to specific technology demo pages that are not in WP but in my folder system on the server, plus some client work.

omnisapien

so external URL’s are mandatory for me to link directly from thumbnails.

onioneye

Hi there,

you will be happy to hear that there is an excellent plugin made for that purpose! I just tested it, and it is 100% compatible with the Tao theme. You can setup your portfolio thumbnails, or even your pages, and blog posts, to link directly to any external URL you have in mind. It’s ultimately easy to do so.

The plugin is named “Page Links To”, and can be found on the following link: http://wordpress.org/plugins/page-links-to/

Sincerely,

OnionEye

omnisapien

can you help me with the change of the word portfolio in the theme to “samples” or some such?

omnisapien

And what about second tier menu items? 3rd tier?

onioneye

Hi there,

that is a piece of pie. It only takes one line of code customization, and I can certainly help you with that on the forums at http://onioneye.ticksy.com/, if you end up buying the theme.

Also no worries about 2nd and 3rd tier menus. They are supported. :)

Hi, i really like this theme, but I have a question: is it possible to make a thumbnail on the homepage open a lightbox, skipping the page in between?

for example, now it works like this:

homepage-> gallery&lightbox-> click a thumbnail, open lightbox

and i’d like it to be:

homepage-> gallery&lightbox-> click a thumbnail, open lightbox

thanks in advance!

onioneye

Hi there,

glad you like the theme! Thanks for taking it into consideration!

As far as your question goes, to have the portfolio thumbnail, and then open a large version of it in the lightbox, instead of opening a portfolio item page, you would have to customize the code a bit. However, you will be happy to hear that this would be really easy to make. A skillful developer should be able to do this under a half an hour; he/she just needs to check out how the lightbox works and then modify a bit of code for the portfolio thumbnails. If you can not do this by yourself, then I suggest hiring someone to quickly do it for you, if you are still interested in the theme.

I wish you the best of luck whatever you decide to do! :)

Hi there, great theme! Just two questions:

1) does it support audio / Soundcloud embeds etc.?

2) are there any shortcodes for tabs etc.?

Many thanks!

onioneye

Hi there,

glad you find the theme great! Thanks for taking it into consideration!

Regarding your questions:

1) Most certainly! In fact, self-hosted audio embeds are natively supported in WordPress since version 3.6, so there is no need to worry about this. Soundcloud embeds are fully supported as well.

2) There are shortcodes for columns with an easy to use “pick n’ click” interface, but for things such as tabs, buttons, toggles, and alerts, I highly recommend the excellent “ZillaShortcodes” plugin, which is 100% compatible with the Tao theme. http://www.themezilla.com/plugins/zillashortcodes/

By the way, putting the shortcodes into plugins, instead of the theme code is a much better idea because you get to keep them once you switch the theme. I see that you are an experienced purchaser, so I am sure you know what I mean. Maybe you even experienced it first hand, when you saw all that broken code in the site’s content, once the theme was deactivated. Fortunately, there is no need to worry about this anymore.

Having said all that, I wish you a lot of fun working with the theme, if you end up buying it! :)

HTML only version?

onioneye

I am afraid no. I only produce WordPress themes, and not HTML templates as well, unfortunately.

Hi! Beautiful theme. I’m interested in getting it, however I want to know how easy/difficult it would be to adjust some of the effects using CSS. Particularly, the menu, which I would prefer to have pull out into the screen instead of the current 3d effect. Also the page flip portfolio effects… easy to adjust or remove those if needed? Thanks!

onioneye

Hi there,

glad you find the theme beautiful! Thanks for taking it into consideration!

You will be happy to hear that I already have the solution for the first customization, regarding the menu. I could give it to you over the forum at onioneye.ticksy.com, if you end up buying the theme. The menu in my solution slides to the right on hover; the content does the same thing as well, at the same time, to make space for the menu. It’s basically the same as the current transition, but without any 3d effects.

Regarding the thumbnail effect, disabling it would only require two lines of code customization, but customizing it a bit more, depending on what exactly you were trying to do. All in all, this would take basic to intermediate knowledge of CSS to achieve. I would say easy peasy for any designer that knows how to handle the latest iteration of CSS.

Hope this helps! Have fun working with the theme, if you end up buying it! :)

Love it! Absolutely stunning.

BUT I’m looking for a blog site. If I was able to have exact same grid and effects on the frontpage – say the most recent 9 or 12 posts – then I would buy immediately.

Any way of doing this?

onioneye

Hi there,

glad you love the theme! Thanks for taking it into consideration.

As far as your question goes, this is unfortunately not available out of the box, but if you are still interested in the theme, then you can always hire a freelancer to make this available for you. I reckon this shouldn’t be a tough job; a skillful developer should be able to do this within a single day.

Having said, enjoy working with the theme, if you end up buying it! :)

i want to buy it but.it dont Compatible with IE6,IE8.can you fix that?

onioneye

Hi there,

thanks for taking an interest in the theme!

When it comes to your concern, those two browsers are severely outdated, so I do not provide support for them, and I unfortunately do not have any plans to do so in the future.

My honest advice for you would be to check your, or your client’s site analytics because chances are, you do not even need support for these two old browsers.

Awesome file and really well constructed. Is there an XML content file or am I just missing something? Thanks

Ignore me was reading the wrong documentation file for another theme that was open! Found it. Thanks again

onioneye

Hi there,

no worries! Thank you for the wonderful compliment about the theme, and your purchase.

By the way, if you find the theme awesome, then please consider rating it on your downloads page. It only takes a few seconds to do, and would help me out a lot as a developer on ThemeForest.

Here is a screenshot depicting how to rate an item on ThemeForest, if you are not sure how to do so: http://www.diigo.com/item/image/1mr8l/py93?size=o

Thank you. :)

Awesome theme.

How can I change the order of the portfolios in the homepage? I’ve tried changing the date but the portfolio objects don’t change their position.

onioneye

Hi there,

glad you find the theme awesome! Thank you for your purchase. :)

As far as your issue goes, you will be glad to hear that there is no need to go through this tedious and tiring process in this theme; you can change the order within seconds by an easy-to-use drag & drop interface! This interface is provided by a plugin called “Metronet Reorder Posts”, http://wordpress.org/plugins/metronet-reorder-posts/, which has been made to work with the theme for your convenience, so feel free to go ahead and try it out.

By the way, please have in mind that this section is only used for pre-purchase inquiries, so if you have anymore questions, or issues, please post them at http://onioneye.ticksy.com/, the official support forum for my themes. Thank you.

This is so wicked!

It’s exactly what I am looking for.

Any way we can have a menu that sorts the portfolio/work out. Similar to firefly? Print/Graphic/Stills/Video…etc.

onioneye

Hi there,

thank you for the compliment, and for taking the theme into consideration!

As far as your question goes, the “animatable filter” isn’t available out of the box, but you can easily sort out the portfolio the default WordPress way, by categorizing it(Print/Graphic/Stills/Video etc.), end then putting the categories in the menu on the left. For example, check out the “sample category” menu item in the demo theme, to see how this would look.

Have fun working with the theme, if you end up buying it! :)
