Hi – nice template. Happy with it so far. Question about the header video: does it just play continuously or can there be a way to give the viewer an option to stop/pause it?

Default-user

Hi again – is there a code I can add so that from Firefox it doesn’t go to the ogv file (cos I can’t get that to work) but instead it goes to image.. just like if it was on mobile?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

If you set useFlashForFirefox to true and delete the altSource, it may be able to run from the .mp4, try it out :)

Cheers!

We can upload out own video, correct?

tommusrhodus

Yup :)

This is the HTML version, when you say “upload” are you looking for the WordPress version?

Hey, quick presale question. Looking at the demo now and the video isn’t loading. The JS console says Array2 0: “Video Error”, and the MP4 file seems to be throwing “206 Partial Content” [according to the Developer Tools]. Just wanted to see the template in action before I bite. :)

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Showing fine on all browsers here, the video is served from a CDN so it could have just been temporarily down. Clear your cache and give it another go, let me know :)

Cheers!

Hi tommusrhodus. I have a problem in the template. Do not load the remaining portfolios by clicking “load more”

tommusrhodus

Please contact me from the account that purchased the template.

Hello! I would like to know how to set up content in my porffolio section, like in the demo version, i cant see that content in the file i download!

Thanks for your help and congrats for the great work!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Are you looking to install the demo data to get your site looking just like the demo to start with? Take a look at the theme documentation for how to install the demo data :)

Cheers!

Hi, I purchase your template for wordpress but i can’t install the DEMO PACKAGE full. Only the xml file Can you help me ? Where i put the additionnal file on my ftp ? thank you

I’d like to buy the WordPress theme of this. I know people have asked about it in the past, so I wanted to see if it was available? If so, where do I purchase it?

Default-user

Never mind. Found it.

Hi

I have a question regarding the video. Is the video also fully responsive? So, if I would view the website on a iPhone, would I then see the entire video?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The video is responsive, however, mobile devices disable background video from a device level (this is the same for all themes & websites) so Tides will just serve a static fallback image for these devices.

Cheers

Default-user

Thank you for your reply.

Is it possible to get a version where the video would work on a smartphone and not display the static image?

I really love this theme and would love to purchase it.

Thanx

tommusrhodus

No, as I mentioned, background video is disabled on a device level, from the device itself. There’s nothing a website can do to display background video on any mobile device.

Cheers

Does it have a preloader image while the video is loading?

I bought the template but some people say that the video takes a little while to show and, in the meanwhile, the screen’s black…No icon or word warning that the video’s actually loading. thanks.

Default-user

Thanks. I do have a concern though. On that page it says “Last Update 31 October 13”. Is this update going to take long? Is it possible to know approximately when is the update going to be released? thanks.

tommusrhodus

Well I’ve not needed to update the template since then :)

No definite date yet, but you may consider a decent “preloader” option in the mean time, such as: http://codepen.io/mimoYmima/pen/fisgL

Cheers

Default-user

That works :). thanks

Will this work with classipress theme in wordpress?

tommusrhodus

No.

Cheers

Default-user

Do you sell any that will?

tommusrhodus

Nope, sorry :)

Hello!!

About the video, do i need to upload it first to Zencode or another streaming service? or can i upload it to the server and call it this way?

} else { BV.show(‘img/video.mp4’,{ altSource:’img/video.ogv’ });

Im asking because for me its not working :( Thanks!!!

tommusrhodus

Try using full URLs for your videos rather than relative URLs.

Cheers

Default-user

Im sorry but im uploading the video to the server and then calling it that way (not using a streaming service) what do you mean by FULL URLS? my videos are in a file named img…. (“img/video.mp4”) i think the problem are the extensions of the video, if i use two ogv videos (as main and alt source) it works on firefox and chrome, but not on IE

Hi there, I purchased it and I only change the video URL, changed different formats for video but no luck, so video other than what you have provided in the templates is not working for me, please advice.

I also checked that mp4, mpg are not playing from the website in my browser (IE10) even if I try to play these from direct url, so I think I am stuck:( and if you could help would be great.

Thanks

tommusrhodus

No problem, I can help you further :)

You should be providing .mp4, .ogv and .webm into the HTML5 video layer in rev slider.

If you can provide me with URLs you’re using for each of these fields, I’ll glady test this for you :)

Cheers!

Hello – how can I change the text SIZE (“Welcome Stranger, We are Tides”) in the Gallery Header?

Default-user

Hi – sorry to bother you. i can’t find where to change the header text SIZE.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

h1.mega { font-size: 24px; }

Add to your CSS file of choice.

Cheers – Tom

Default-user

Awesome.. thanks :)

I just purchased this template and am loving it. I am not really great with wordpress stuff, but I am really close to getting this the way I like it. The only problem I am having right now is that the portfolio link seems to just bring me back up to the top of the page. Are there any simple fixes for this? The website is barkingsquirrel.co

Hello. Great template! Just had one question regarding something I’ve been trying to troubleshoot for a while. I’ve been doing some custom CSS, but can’t seem to figure out how to override the rollover color for the portfolio preview section on the homepage. Essentially that colored box that appears on the portfolio thumbnails on rollover. It defaults to white. And anything I try to add as a custom doesn’t go through. I now it’s using the isotope styles, but they seem to get embedded in the ‘head’ of the homepage HTML and I can’t figure out how to alter them. Thanks!

Default-user

I see, it’s conflicting with the “Highlight” color in the Customize section. If you know of a good way to avoid these conflicts, please let me know. I’m continuing to mess with it. Thanks!

I bought your Elise theme recently, and had questions about the video header. Does the video header of the Tides theme play only youtube video as well? No Vimeo? No chance of playing my own MP4?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Tides is capable of playing HTML5 video only :)

So you can use your own .mp4 in tides :)

Cheers!

Hello,

Just wondering if you can show me how to hide the navigation. I want it to only show when the user scrolls down.

Please!

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Sorry, this would require considerable CSS & JS development.

Cheers

Hey Buddy, can you please let me know how to load the remaining portfolios by clicking “load more” please? Much appreciated buddy!!!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The load more functionality loads using more-posts.html in the template files.

If you’re not seeing this locally your browser may be denying AJAX requests, test with the template on a server, or set up a local server environment.

Cheers

Default-user

Great! Worked. Thanks so much for the quick response!!!!!!! Great, great, great template. Thanks buddy!

Hi I am determined to buy your website but I see that the single image version does not fit in ipad. Shows only a very distorted image. Could be fixed? Thanks a lot

tommusrhodus

Any chance you could provide a screenshot?

Default-user
