No problem, glad I could help :)

I’d love to update my aging Wordpress based portfolio with this look. Could you let me know as soon as the Wordpress theme is done, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat!

tommusrhodus

Thanks :) WordPress version is on it’s way, just taking a little longer than hoped at the moment.

Cheers!

This would be perfect if it were a multi page template.

tommusrhodus

You may be interested in my other HTML template “New” then, which shares a lot of elements styling with Tides.

Cheers

Is there a way to make it so that when you have audio playing and you click a menu item, that it pauses the video completely? I hear sound still when scrolling down. Then if they click home again, or scroll up, it would resume?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Not currently but it’s a great idea actually, it would need some javascript work though that I would need to add in an item update.

Cheers

Sorry to ask a stupid question, This is an HTML site correct? What do I need in order to be able to make the customisations etc? Do I need to understand HTML coding and have a code editing software? I assume it doesn’t work with Wordpress? Many thanks for any help you can share.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yep this is HTML, you’ll need to be able to modify HTML/CSS/JS by hand to use this, it does not work with WordPress.

Cheers :)

Hello, This template its compatible with youtube videos? (Can I use a youtube video for the VIDEO HEADER?).

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No, it’s .mp4 video only.

Cheers

Is there a way to make the videos work for mobile? Maybe something where you click it and it will play a video?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

This is something I’m considering for an update, but given the more limited bandwidth and memory available to mobile devices, the current solution allows for more smooth page operation on mobiles, which is obviously quite desirable.

Cheers

Hello,

How can i fix this problem?

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

Thanks Best regards

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

This isn’t a WordPress theme, it’s a HTML template.

If you need to contact Envato about this, you can do so here:

Hi, could someone tell me, how can I change the video background? Thanks!

Hey, i purchased your Theme – very Nice!!!

i just have one problem with the iphone view (iphone 5) in portrait mode.

the header pic is not fullwidth, so i can scroll horizontal (ca. 30px).

Can you please help me…

thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Try adding:

#big-video-wrap { overflow-x: hidden; }

To your CSS. Remember to clear all caches!

Cheers :)

Hi Tommus

I want to do something with the portfolio filthers and it’s kinda complex. For now, I have 1 line of filthers and when I click one of them, only 1 button at a time is active. But what I want is, 3 lines of button, with on each of them 1 button that can stay active while other buttons are active on the other lines. Its hard to explain, but it’s like 3 different categories filther, where I can click one button on each line to have a different patern of portfolio image showned. Plus, I want to keep the ’’All’’ button on the first line and still show all images when active. I dont want you to code all the lines for me, I just want to know how to do it!

Thanks! :bigsmile:

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

That would take some pretty serious .js development to be honest. Here’s where you’ll want to start:

I wouldn’t really know where to start myself to be honest with this. Sorry! :)

Thanks!

I’ll do my best to try it haha

cheers!

Can you tell me where i made a mistake

Default-user

Thank you very much for the link,

But do you have a another guide to change the video on your html code, it is still not working for me.

Thank You

Default-user

i have a mp4 format video but it doesnt work

tommusrhodus

Please see my original, unchanged files, there is an .mp4 and a .ogg link in the bottom, replicate this with your own.

Cheers

Hi , great template , poor explanation how to modify header background video . I tried replacing at the bottom of index.html with either Youtube or Vimeo Url ( NOPE) I tried modifying video.js ( Nope) style.css ( nope) , i’ve checked your comments & you’ve provided a link to BigVideo ( http://dfcb.github.io/BigVideo.js/) which only provides a link to a list of already prepared video mp4 links to use , like the one you used in template. In plain english, in step form if need be ( 1,2,3) what is the exact steps to change the background video ? Thanks in advance.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The background video is modified at the bottom of index.html as you mention. However, as the big video.js documentation mentions, it does not accept youtube or vimeo links, it needs a direct path to a .mp4 video and a .ogv video. As you correctly pointed out we are using the same as the big video.js demo, but you can self host these video formats also.

Step 1: Get your video in .mp4 and .ogv video and host it either externally, or on your own server.

Step 2: Replace the existing video paths with your own.

Cheers

Hello can i create a SUB-MENU ?

Thanks

Hi there,

looks like an awesome theme. I hope you don’t mind me asking a pre-sales question. I’m looking for a responsive, video single page template which can be stripped down to: - the video being the only section visible apart from a contact form (no further scrolling) - no header menu - a few icons linked to soundcloud, tumblr, twitter etc.

I know it must hurt a capable and creative designer like you, but – me being a noob who is only looking for a “hub” site – would you recommend buying Tides nevertheless?

Thank a ton in advance!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Yeah you could totally strip tides down to do this, it’s pretty modular in that way :)

To be honest you might not even need tides to do what you need. Here’s the video plugin: http://dfcb.github.io/BigVideo.js/

Everything you need on top is pretty simple, you might even do well just building from scratch? :)

Hello

Just what I was looking for, only I need it for wordpress, any date on the wordpress version?

Cheers

Alex

Hey there, Wordpress version is in the review queue, should be any day now :)

Hey there,

I have no way of helping without seeing your site URL, please leave a ticket with your site URL at my support site:

having issues viewing demo on an iPad Air Safari or Chrome. The video acts funky, looks like it’s scaling it up so that a single pixel fills the screen.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Thanks, we’re looking into this.

Cheers!

HI, I’m having some trouble adding my logo. The logo you provide with the demo is 100×57. Can this dimension be changed easily? Mine is a bit larger and winds up obscuring the video.

Thanks!
