Hi TommusRhodus,

Is the light version (http://madeinebor.com/tglight/) available out of the box with tg or the user has to customize it by himself?

tommusrhodus

It’s not available out of the box, but will take about 2 mins to convert the colours using our colour picker tools in the theme options :)

Hi there! Is there any way to restore the colours to what they were inicially apart from changing them one by one manually? I ask this because that accent bar where the ‘x’ is is dark grey for some reason. I already tried going to customize theme, colors and changing the accent colour, but the bar stays the same. Any ideas?

Hi – I really like the theme and was thinking of purchasing but had a question…

much of the content in the preview sits on the homepage but I have a number of portfolio products which I don’t really want sitting on the homepage is it possible to have the a menu item link to different portfolio pages ?

thanks Steve

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

It’s possible to hide items from the homepage and only show them in specific other sections (i.e portfolio)

So yes, you can do this :)

I cannot get your contact form to actually send the contact email to my email. I’m a bit frustrated with it.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you leave a ticket with a WP login at;

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

Then I’ll be more than happy to see if I can configure the script to your server for you :)

Hi, Great theme I really love it!

Just one question. I’m trying to set theme “Portfolio Item” to single portfolio page via “Use elements in sidebar” – everything works except the text of the portfolio post (block with post date and author). Can you give me some advice how to add this block?

tommusrhodus

It’s in my development list, so probably on the next update :)

Cheers

Hopefully Friday Morning :)

Hey,

I am very interested in this topic. However Before to buy it, i have a question about is it possible to add a search bar on this topic? Because I’d like to have an opportunity to search for information in my future posts.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can include a search widget in the footer, or in the sidebar of blog posts.

Cheers!

Hi Tommus,

Great theme! Quick question: Is there a way to add a captcha to the contact form or any other type of spam protection? I’m getting a lot of spam emails from the contact form and wanted to see if there was an easy fix.

Thanks, Carl

tommusrhodus

Hey Carl,

Which version of theGrid are you using? We added a spam catch a couple of versions back, if you’re up to date, leave a ticket with a copy/paste of your latest spam email at:

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

And I’ll see what I can do :)

Cheers!

Im a bit new to this but Im having issues 1. Icons arent showing from the portfolio section for instance where you mouse over the image and you have icons that are clickable. they are fine in explorer or dreamweaver but not in Chrome or firefox.

2. How do i change the ”#filter=.home” that shows in the address bar?

3. I cannot get backround image to show in the header at all and ive tried several paths of doing this. one from the “styles css” by adding background-image: url(/www/images/BlueprintBG1.jpg) and even tried directly in the index.html it will not show up.

Default-user

also the mobile version isnt showing nav section at all

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m currently responding to your ticket on my support site :)

I’m sure the answers will be simple :)

Cheers

Hi Tom,

Your theme rocks! I have a couple of prepurchase questions that I was hoping you could help me with:

1. Can I include external links anywhere= ads, so pictures with external links that don’t open any lightboxes or internal pages?

2. Have you got an overview of shortcodes for pages/blogposts? I really need tooltips, so wondering if that’s not already available will I be able to use a plugin with this theme to make it work?

3. Twitter – I would like to include twitter feeds similar to quotes, so one twitter quote at a time that updates dependant on twitter name or hashtag, is that possible or planned for the future?

Thanks

Default-user

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the quick reply.

What is the difference between theGrid and theArchitect theme? Is it just the SEO functionality of having blog posts with URLs?

I am keen on buying one of those themes for a magazine style website but unsure which one is the better choice.

Do you always have to double click on a blog item to read the full item with theArchitect?

Do both use Twitter feeds in the same way?

Sorry for asking so many questions…

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No problem :)

1. There’s a few major functionality differences, but it’s mainly design differences and other smaller tweaks.

2. No, the architect has a setting in the theme options to take you straight through to the post.

3. theArchitect does not include a twitter feed, as I mentioned, it’s there for backwards compatibility in theGrid, but since theArchitect came out after the 1.1 API update, I pulled twitter integration from that one :)

Cheers!

Default-user

Great, thanks for clarifying – I have now purchased theGrid :)

kotos Purchased

I have newest version of the Grid but i recive a lot of spam from the contact form. Can you update TG with captcha (recaptcha). Thank you

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Could you leave me a ticket with your WP Login and a copy/paste of the latest spam you got?

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

I’ll see what I can do for you :)

Cheers

I’m very interested in this theme. Couple of questions, though.

Is there support for incorporating background images rather than flat colours in the header/page background.

Is there a ‘latest tweets’ box somewhere?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can add a background image to the page background.

There is a tweet box included but it’s limited to one tweet, the footer is widget ready however so you could always drop a tweet widget / feed in there.

Cheers!

If anyone has a doubt about buying, well.. DON’T. The support and kindness of this guy are just AWESOME.

Thanx!!

tommusrhodus

Wow, thanks! :D

Good afternoon. Your theme theme is wonderful. I would like to know before I can get it, will it be possible for her to realize this: http://smoknot.ru/ In particular, I need to make the title and content text in columns 2 and 3.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The demo showcases the capabilities of the theme, if you need it to do something you can’t see in the demo, then it’s likely that it’s not currently achievable with the theme.

Cheers!

Hi

I’m trying to float an image (to the right) in the text box in page builder.

when I put it in it knocks the text off the bottom. i’ve tried wrapping it in a div but the text then overlays across the top of the image.

do you have any suggestions?

thanks Steve

tommusrhodus

Hey Steve,

Please leave a ticket at our support site with a link to your page showing this, I’m sure we can quickly help;

Hi Tommusrhodus,

as I questioned already for the HC theme, I also like to know, if theGrid is also capable of multi languages?

If yes, can you tell me which multilanguage plugin is working with the hc-theme?

If ‘maybe’, can you tell me what will work and what not?

Thank you very much, Tom

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

TheGrid is confirmed working with qTranslate, you’ll need to make use of the qTranslate quick tags to help you add translations in the page builder;

Very good, I checked this out with theArchitect and it seems to work with that also. So I bought theGrid right now.

Thanks a lot, Tom

Hi there , im testing the theme ,

Preloading is not working in all versions ,

some Js files links does not working , specially for preload

any suggestions ?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

All versions of which browser? The theme is thoroughly tested and confirmed working in all our supported browsers (IE8+)

Cheers

ZeenyTeam

Thank you i found out the issue, for whom will wonder about this , you have to enable it from Customize TG Options if its not showing, its working perfectly Just Enable it! , Best Regards

Hi there. On the homepage is there anyway to hide the “Posted: October 24, 2013” on the blog? I think you call it blog-icon. Many thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Add the following to the Custom CSS section in your theme options;

.blog-icon { text-indent: -9999px; }

Cheers!

Hello there. I wish know, how it works with payment. The value regular format is monthly? For institutional use of a company, is sufficient the regular format?

I’m sorry for language.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

All themes on theme forest are a 1-time purchase, there’s very few reasons (almost none) you’d need the expensive license, a regular license in 99.9% of cases is just fine.

Cheers

Dear TommusRhodus, i was wondering is there anyway i can have filler menu plus static menus together?

like beside filtered menu buttons as you designed it , i add another menu with sub menu buttons , because i tried that and it didn’t go well ,it cant make sub menus , im sure many people will wonder about this, this is for adding static pages with the filter boxes idea , so

any suggestions?

many thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can mix and match menu items in the same menu without any problem, there isn’t submenu support at the moment.

If you need any more help, could you please log in with the account which bought the theme, as you currently don’t have a buyers badge for this item.

Cheers
