tristan..

tommusrhodus

Thanks man! :)

very cool! i’ll be purchasing this in the future!

tommusrhodus

Great! Cheers! :)

Been waiting for this – You truly do have the best choice of HTML to code up. Awesome stuff

tommusrhodus

:D Thanks dude!

Is it possible to remove the title text on the images in the portfolio? Maybe only show the images in the portfolio that when clicked show lightbox image.

Basically I don’t need all the text for images… so what to display a showcase of images.

Any screenshots of the admin panel?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Currently all portfolio items will show the title and categories, I’ll add in a theme option to remove the titles so that it just shows blank images in an update tonight or tomorrow.

I’ll update with admin panel screenshots later, the admin panel looks just like the one on my ‘Beard’ theme, there’s a screenshot on the product page for that.

Cheers!

tommusrhodus

Here’s a screenshot of the admin panel, we use the WordPress theme customiser, for fast & secure theme modification, plus it’s already built into WordPress which keeps TG faster & more lightweight :)

Cheers!

Amazing theme! Pre-sales question:

Is it not possible to show images on the blog template like you can on the homepage template with portfolio items?

If not, would you consider implementing this feature in an update?

Thanks very much.

P.s. Also, could you add examples of youtube and vimeo videos in the blog demo section please?

tommusrhodus

Hey there, thanks!

Currently not, but I can add a new block to my page builder to do this in an upcoming update :)

More post examples going up in a few hours!

Cheers!

Kiss_Collective

Awesome. Much appreciated indeed.

Awesome design! GLWS mate :D:D:D

tommusrhodus

Thank you very much :)

Wonderlicious work, congrats ! :)

tommusrhodus

Thanks so much! :)

Great work! Question.. is there a limitation to the number of e.g. clients logo’s and can you set the number visible logo’s on the “home page” (and see more after clicking the clients menu)?

tommusrhodus

How many logos would you be planning on showing? :)

Default-user

hmm.. a lot? :-) like 20/30 or so..

tommusrhodus

Ok then, I’ll look to implement a load more button in the client section in an upcoming update :)

Cheers!

Hello, nice theme!!!

Is it possible to add a new page to the menu? Or link to a new page on the front page?

tommusrhodus

Hey there, thanks!

It is indeed :) The front page has an independent menu that you can add filters or links to, standard pages have another menu that can be set with links so that you don’t have filters on a page with nothing to filter!

I hope this helps & makes sense :) Tom

tommusrhodus

Here’s an example of a standard page with just a link to ‘Home’ in the standard navigation;

Awesome One of the best WP one page theme ! Good Luck :)

tommusrhodus

Woah, thanks! :D Much appreciated!

nice, but surprised that there is no demo with a clear background instead of the default dark one..

tommusrhodus

Can’t argue with that, I’ll put something together for later on today :)

Cheers!

Good Idea !!

Good Luck :)

tommusrhodus

Thank you very much :)

I have been waiting for this one. Thanks for uploading the wordpress version of theGrid :)

I am new to web designing and I have some questions regarding this theme. Please pardon my ignorance if some of the questions below are stupid:

1) Can I modify the size of the boxes on the main page? I see fixed sized rectangle and square boxes. Can I make them bigger or smaller as per my requirement? 2) The square sliding boxes, where the image slides when curser goes over it, will I be able to modify the speed with which the box slides to the right? Also, I wish to slide only half of the box and not the entire. 3) The facebook and twitter links which are located at the very bottom, will I be able to bring them to the top of the screen? 4) Last but not the least; will any of the items above decrease the functionality of the website?

Thanks,

Akash

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

As a general rule of thumb, if you don’t see it in the demo then you’ll need to create the functionality yourself i.e Code

1. The main page elements are pre-sized, I’ve included a double width text element if you’ve a little too much text for one of the smaller elements.

2. You can modify this behaviour, but you’ll need to directly edit our Javascript especially to create the half slide.

3. No, this would require direct modification of the theme files, I’m sure it would be possible if you wished to quite heavily modify some CSS.

4. If you can make the modifications then you’ll be able to make sure that the theme can take them :)

I hope this helps :)

Another awesome work! ;)

tommusrhodus

Thanks, we have high hopes for this one :)

Looks awesome! I love the page transitions and how quickly the site responds.

tommusrhodus

Thanks so much Mike :) That means a lot to me :D

Hi, Cool theme.

Quick questions:

1)How flexible is it on the colours??? can you change the colours, such as the black and orange??? I would like the black to be white and the orange a light grey.

2)Is it possible to see what other people have done with it? I would like it to feature my work well, rather than the theme be the feature of my website.

Thank you!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’ve just added to my devlopment list to add Pinterest, Instagram & Xing social icons to the header and footer social area.

They will be available with the next update in a couple of days :)

Cheers!

I bought the theme yesterday but under my brother’s profile as he had some credit. I haven’t read the documentation yet as I still have to download it …but I have been playing around and a lot it straight forward and easy to do. I had one quick question….I was wondering if the google map in contacts can be changed to black and white? I have seen it on some themes and I like the look as it’s a bit more subtle.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you grab the license code from your brothers profile then you can leave a ticket at my support site and I’ll take a look for you:

Cheers!

very nice, modern and sleek design … looking forward to use this for a project.

tommusrhodus

Sweet :) Thanks a bunch!

Is the site SEO friendly? There is no note about it and that will be my only concern. Otherwise great job!

tommusrhodus

Hey there, theGrid is ready for SEO plugins and has been developed with great care in its coding. Being a one-pager it’s probably not as good at ranking as say, a full magazine theme, but as they say, content is king, and theGrid gives you full control over your content :)

I also realise that wasn’t a 100% direct answer :P I’ve developed theGrid with best practices in mind, you should find the code is semantic and valid, beyond there the content takes over. :)

Hello!

Wow, this theme is really a unique one, good work! I do have some questions:

  • Can I place normal widgets on the right sidebar (blog post and portfolio)? Like a tag cloud, latest posts, banner, etc.
  • Can I have more than one portfolio page?
  • Would it be possible to show the portfolio categories/tags in the sidebar? Like an article tag cloud?
  • Do you have some shortcodes available?

Many thanks, and again awesome theme! Really out of the crowd :-) Thanks.

tommusrhodus

Let me run a few checks on this for you, I’ll update with the results :)

tobi_as

Thanks, looking forward to the results.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yes it seems that the ‘rectangular’ ads code can be simply copied and pasted into the ‘text’ page-builder elements to create add blocks quite easily.

Cheers!

Hi,

really excellent theme! Short question: Is it possible to change the background color in the header and the background in the portfolio items?

thanks and best wishes for sales

Default-user

Thanks, i will wait – love the design

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

PPandP – the HTML designer of this theme is interested in perfecting an extra colour scheme for theGrid which has slowed this down a little, I’m in the process of adding extra colour controls for an update later today.

Cheers! :)

Default-user

Hi Tom, thanks for the Information. I will definitly buy the theme for my current project

Best greetings from Berlin

Mike
