really nice and clean design. I really appreciate that so much of what is found on here is too flashy.

I have what may be a silly question. I have a flash site for my photography. and I have been looking for an “alternate content” site for those devices that are not flash enabled.

would this vCard work as such. Meaning if I embedded my flash site with swfObjects with detect on and someone called up my site on a iphone or something and redirected me to a version of your vCard template would it display on a iPhone.

and if so would we still have the ability to view photos like in the gallery section.

I know this question is a bit more general then your file… but I really like it and want to know if I can make it work for my need.

thanks and keep up the good clean design.

Hi Terraform,

Thanks :)

I don’t think you can show the whole vCard design when flash is disabled(Maybe just the center part). However, a best practice would be to redirect the user to a different url, if they don’t have flash or the required version of it installed. It’s pretty simple since you are already using swfObject.

It is explained in these places: http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/ http://rossholdway.com/blog/redirect-if-flash-is-not-installed

Hope that helps :)

Hi there, I have to questions:

1. Is there a way to fill the Card with a background / pattern etc.

2. Is there a way to put a background on the whole page? Pattern, full size image etc.?

Regards, HamZta

ps.: all in one a good vCard template. :)

pearlstudios

Hi Hamzta,

Ofcourse, and the elements where you can apply the background-image are: #outerWrapper, #contentWrapper, #content.

If you got more doubts contact me through my profile page and I’ll help you out…

Thanks :)

Mustafa;

How can we change the contact form’s default e-mail adress? I mean when the form is submitted, where is the information has been going to?

pearlstudios

Hi Serhatugur,

You can change it in the config.php file. Just replace the default address with your email id.

Thanks :)

I just bought this today. It looked like it would be a great skeleton for my front end. I tweaked everything except for the q-tips to my liking. However, the documentation for that is lacking. Next weekend I will spend the time digging in the code for what I need. I also want to add a few more pages for my portfolio.

All in all, I am very pleased with the way it came out. Check it out at jimlivingston.com. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how I “skinned” your original work.

Thanks for the time and effort you put into this. Cheers!

Hi Jim,

Looks great. The Documentation for qTip can be found here: http://craigsworks.com/projects/qtip/docs/

If you’re stuck with something specific, shoot me an email and I’ll help out. Thanks :)

If I want to include a work experience section with this template, is there an easy way to do that?

pearlstudios

Of Course, If you want something specific and think it will be useful addition to the template, do let me know and I’ll add.

Thanks

Great! I was thinking it would be nice to add an option for a “work experience” section, which would basically then make this template double as a résumé template. what do you think?

pearlstudios

Sure. We already have a Work Portfolio section. If you can send me a mail through my profile page on what fields you would like to include there, I can update it this weekend.

Thanks.

Hi Mustafa,

I am changing from the no-gallery to the gallery version of your nice template now – i’d have just one thing to ask you: The buttons ( and closeX) in the gallery are in English. I looked for PSD files for them, in order to change the wording to portuguese, but i found only PNGs. Is there any chance you would either send me the PSDs for the buttons, or make the translation yourself? (the text for prev would be "ant" or "anterior", whatever fits; the text for next would be "prox" or "próximo"; and the text for "close" would be "fechar") Thanks a lot, Eduardo

pearlstudios

Hi Anatman,

If you have basic knowledge of photoshop, gimp, you can do it yourself. Just change the necessary files in the following folder: images\prettyPhoto\dark_square

If you can’t then send me a mail through my profile page…

Thanks

anatman Purchased

Thanks Mustafa, i managed to change the buttons.

I have two more questions – and i have searched a lot before asking you! How can i set the zoom level of the map (to level 16); And how can i show a walking path from one point to my workplace on the map?

I realize this pertains to Google maps API , but i have no idea how to use that and i will be very gratefull if you have the time to answer these.

Hi again,

Been busy with some events here. I changed the script and have updated my files. Its in the review queue and should get accepted pretty soon.

I’ve also updated the comments in the html file and the documentation. It will be very easy for you to follow. You can now add controls, zoom levels, etc..

Thanks

btw, guys I was one of the winners of the CSS Tricks CSS -Off Competition :)

pearlstudios

Alright it took quite a bit of time for it to get approved(the reviewers don’t work on weekends it seems) but its finally done. The new files are uploaded.

Thanks

Hi

You sent me a message to remove my site that I purchased but I am confused as to why? Is the reason due to me editing the copyright section? If so I can apply this again and apologize for any issues it caused

pearlstudios

Hi Spankeh,

This might be a mistake, can you please reply to the email you received?

As you’ve purchased the file, you don’t have to worry about it. Also, you can change the copyright information to anything you want.

Hi Mustafa,

awesome work, very clean code and nicely documented! :)

one thing:

I’ve noticed that the jquery lib which is included, is a bit outdated (v1.3.2). Would you recommend updating the .js file with a recent version or does that break any of the javascript functionality?

pearlstudios

Hi bball4life,

Thanks for bringing this to my notice, however, it won’t change anything. You can update it if you want and it will still work..

I’ll keep this in mind if I make any future updates.

Thanks :)

Hi,

I am unable to get the contact form working. I have added my email address in the config.php . Could you help me out with it.

Thanks

pearlstudios

Hi Avinash,

Looks like this might be a problem with the hosting server requiring authentication. You might want to contact them. If you think it is not, then please send me a message via my profile page and I’ll do my best to help you with this.

Thanks :)

Default-user

Hi,

You were correct. The host has disabled the mail() function. I will have to use SMTP authentication to send the email.

Another query I have is that the “vCard” itself is very small in size and there is lots of blank space around it. Is it possible in anyway just to double the size of the vCard, including the text, icons, etc. Probably something equivalent of what we get when we use “control” + “scroll” in firefox.

P.S – I’m also from Chennai :D

pearlstudios

Hi Again,

Glad to find someone from Chennai on TF :)

Regarding your query it can be done easily with some pretty basic knowledge of html/css.

Thanks :)

Hello Mustafa,

Love the VBC template. Very cool.

Questions…

Can the find me/network section and it’s icon on the navbar be removed? Or can I replace the icons on that section with icons of my own?

Thanks, Tom

pearlstudios

Hi ttrusty,

Ofcourse, it can be removed…you need pretty basic knowledge of HTML for that.

Thanks :)

Great! And thanks for the quick response.

Hello, Mustafa! Just bought your template! Sorry for language but i’ll ask a little about customization of template… i’m completely not a pro in all that HTML stuff but i’m trying to understand some things how to do…

1, Can you help me how to move navigation toolbar on the most bottom of the screen.. Or right under the main window (under window with galleries and etc, where now reflection.jpg is located..)...

2. Is there any chances to make text to be scrolled in About section. And can i somehow put in About section a picture so it’ll open like in gallery section.

3. (last one.. ;) ) How to make that @ copyright info popupped not from above, but from bottom…

Sorry for my noob questions and my english, but if you help me – it’ll be very very good! Thnks!

pearlstudios

Hi,

I’m traveling right now, Answering your question will take some time. I’ll get back to you as soon as I find a stable net connection.

Thanks

pearlstudios

Hi Ghostyshev,

Extremely sorry for the late reply. It’s the vacation/weddings period here in India :)

1. Yep, Can you send me a mail with the link of your implementation? I’ll get back to you with the changes you need to make.

2. Scrolling: can be done but needs some coding. Image opening in lightbox: pretty simple.

3. It can be done from bottom but it will have issues with window scrollbar re-adjusting in some browsers on hover.

Do mail me thourgh my profile page, since I’ll be travelling from saturday again. Thanks!

ok. I’ll wait! Thanks! Have a nice traveling! :)

I Hope you don’t forget about my questions?..... ;)

Hi, i just replied to your mail. This is a html/css theme and not a wordpress theme

Thanks

Hi,

I recently brought this template (which I love) and just tested the template in IE 8 . Whenever the user first visits the site, IE prompts “To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options….”

Is there anyway I can allow the blocked content without the user always clicking on the prompt to allow the blocked content?

pearlstudios

Thanks :)

Regarding your question, it is one of the most annoying feature of IE. I’m not sure if there is a way of bypassing it and it shows up on most sites.

I think, a user can disable the warning from IE’s “internet options” dialog though.

Vingster Purchased

That’s annoying. However on the “Live preview” above, it doesn’t seem to come up with the IE prompt. I was hoping you had additional code or something?

pearlstudios

The live preview loads the theme in a frame and hence you don’t see the error.

Any fix we do to bypass this feature, is mostly a hack and frowned upon…

Hi,

Great work you did there. Im setting up the vCard website but I found that I need an asset for network you don’t have there: github. Can you please create one for me?

Thanks in advance

Hi Dicarsio,

Thanks. Why don’t you try this? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=github+icon

This is not only a great theme, but the author is very responsive to requests and support questions. A few months after i bought it, i needed a customization, and Mustafa was available at a reasonable rate, and made a great job. Highly recommended!
