Great template, really like it,

Having an issue with the pre-loader though… I’ve just installed it here: http://tfngwena.tumblr.com/ and it seems to stick on the preloader.

The contact, portfolio and about page / links and the pre loader on those pages works fine but on the main landing page, just wont load.

Any ideas what’s causing this :confused: ?

Many Thanks :)

Baires

Thanks for your purchase.

Tumblr´s API seems to be down right now, that’s why you only see the preloader. This Theme needs the API to work properly.

A quick fix could be to hide #preloading. Open your Theme and find this line:
<div id="preloading" />
Now replace with:
<div id="preloading" style="display:none;" />

Once everything gets back to normal, reverse the changes

Hi, I’m really new to this and I have a question that might be a really stupid one.

If I use this theme, am I able to have a blog page?

I read a comment by fotony asking about having a blog page and the response was no. But then I clicked the tfngwena’s link (http://tfngwena.tumblr.com/) and he is using this theme with a blog.

I’m a little confused. So before I purchase this theme, please can you let me know if its possible to have a blog?

Thanks so much for your help!

Baires

Unfortunately, no at this time. Tumblr’s page are not enough powerful yet. I checked the site but is not using my Theme at the moment.

Nice theme! I’ve always wanted a real simple and minimalistic theme for my website. I’m a graphic artist by the way… and i’ve been stressing out over all these wordpress themes and which one to use for my site. Mainly because alot of them are really cool looking in their demos, but when it comes time to making everything work, its a little complicated. The instructions and template documents are always somehow out of date with a few options, making it hard to figure out how to do something thats supposed to be so simple…UGH! I get frustrated and don’t even wanna deal with the template any more.

Anyways, I’m almost thinking outside the box now, and thinking of using tumblr as my MAIN portfolio site. With that said, and before signing up for tumblr and buying this theme, I’ve got a few Qs:

1. Is there a way I can make my tumblr web address my .com name? (Ex: when someone types in www.litefolio.tumblr.com, can i somehow transfer it to be www.litefolio.com and it still brings up my tumblr page??) I’m sure if thats possible, i’d have to figure that out within my own web hosting space huh?? Like redirects and all that stuff…

2. Where it says “I’m Juan and I love to design”, is that text, or is the whole thing (that saying, the the title, and ipad) all one picture?

3. “HOME” is obviously where all my post/projects will show up and go. Will the post place themselves in order in that “portfolio/post display grid” towards the bottom like in the demo?

4. When making a post, or uploading a project into the portfolio, is it possible to upload more than one image at a time? Or should I just make a long jpeg image with all the images I want in a single post. (newbie question, sorry)

6. Does this template have the ability for people to “like” and reblog if they please to?

Oky… I think thats it. Sorry for all the Q’s and hopefully they make sense to you. I’m just a stickler for details and there are little things that id love to input into the site/template if i can. Thanks for your time, i appreciate it. - JB

1 Of course you can use your own domain on Tumblr, don’t need to worry about webhosting, your Tumblr blog will be always hosted on their servers.

2 Is tagline, you can edit it and make your own, just need to edit the psd.

3 This theme sorts blog posts by date so that the most recent submission appears first.

4 For each portfolio item, you need at least one image, if you go with more than one image, the Theme will automatic create a slideshow of that images.

5 The like/reblog button is always on the top

Hope I answered your questions

sure does, thanks!

Oky, I got a few more Q’s

1. The iPad is holding an image, obviously you can change the picture thats in. (The iPad is a PSD file?) But does the iPad have to be there, or can you replace it with another image or PSD file?

2. The font that is being used for “I’m Juan and I love to design”, do you have to use that font or can it be replaced with another font type?

3. How many pages can you create with this theme? And is there an icon for each page you create, or just title text?

4. If other pages can be created, can you upload content like in the “about” section making the page into what you want? Ex: A Downloads section/page

5. Can you change the highlight color of the icon when its selected? Ex: When I click “portfolio” or “about” the camera and profile icons are highlighted in blue while in that section of the site.

6. In the portfolio section of the site, is that more of an archive of all the post you’ve made, or can you control what images/projects go in there?

7. When a page is loading up, it says “bear with me”. Is there a way to change that text to something else or no? Or can you do away with it completely?

8. I’m sure this can probably be done in the HTML coding, but if I have a logo I’d like to add in the footer of the page (below the footer line with the “copyright” and “powered by tumblr” text) can I add an image there? Specifically right aligned, with the other text being left aligned.

Baires

1. No, the pds does not include the iPad, although you can grab a copy from the autor page. You can change the iPad for another image (CSS knowledge required).

2 Yes, can be edited later in photshop

3 There are 3 pages: Portfolio, Contact and About me. Icons are included in the psd.

4 Yes, but CSS /HTML knowledge required.

5 Can be edited in photoshop

6 Nop, the items are pulling from the Tumblr API .

7 Yes, just need to replace that line in the Theme.

8 Yes, but CSS /HTML knowledge required.

Thanks again for answering my Q’s. I know I had alot.

I’ve got two more though…

1. The code you have in place for the automatic slideshow, can that code be used in another tumblr template? So that if I transfer the code to the right place, upload multiple images for a project, I should get the automatic slideshow effect like in this theme?

2. The “portfolio” page, where all the projects present themselves, is there a way that code or page layout can work for another theme?

One more quick Q!

In your theme here, when you upload more than one pic in a single post, it automatically creates the additional thumbnail pics of the other pics you uploaded for that particular post. Is that a special javascript doing that, or does Tumblr automatically do that on it’s on with an custom theme you may have in place?

Baires

Tumblr + a very nice script handmade :D

Hi, I love this theme but is there no way to show more than 7 items?

Any tips on creating pagination or an archive? Even if they don’t have as many bells & whistles as the index, I really need archive pages.

Thanks!

Baires

It may break your layout, but try to open the file custom.js and find this line:

$.getJSON("/api/read/json?type=photo&num=6&start=1&callback=?", function (b)

Replace the “6” with the number of items that you wish to display. Tip: try “9” or “12”. Save your change,s upload the file and replace the older version of this file with the new one.

Tumblr creates an archive (very basic DTW ) just go to mytumblr.com/archive and you will see it

Thank you!! That’s just what I needed to know.

This is a really wonderful theme, one of the best I’ve seen. Thanks for making it.

Is there a size limit to the pictures posted in the portfolio section? Is there a limit to the number of photos you can have on each project?

Baires

No, no limits. Tumblr will crop your images automatically. You can use 3 images in each Photoset, if you try with more images it may break the layout.

  • Has been a member for 3-4 years

Wondering if I could scratch the tagline and have the top row be a large picture instead. So the page layout becomes a large project photo on top with smaller previews below. Possible?

Baires

Quite possible, you may have to delete some lines and play with the css, but I can assist you in the process

Hi there I purchased this theme and love it! I want to change the header image though the way you have it say classica with my blog name because I really was drawn to that style with this theme! Can you please tell me the name of that font so I can change the header?

Hi,

Nice theme, I’m working on it now and it’s pretty cool. My questions:

The twitter code in the footer, how do I implement that in my own install?

The “Share: Facebook / Tweet” links, how are those implemented as well?

Thanks in advance, ST

Baires

Please sent me an e-mail so I can explain you this in more details

In regards to using this theme on Tumblr, is it not compatible? I was preparing to buy this theme for my photo blog hosted by Tumblr, but then I read in these comments something about the Tumblr API not being strong enough to support this theme. Does that mean it will not work? I don’t want to purchase it and then find out that it isn’t going to load correctly. Please let me know before I purchase this theme, thanks!

Baires

Hi There,

I understand your concerns, but please check the demo, what you see if what you get. Sometimes the Tumblr API goes down and the theme may not work properly. But this only happens from time to time and for very shorts periods.

Hi,

I’ve installed the theme some time ago and it has allways workd fine.

Unfortunately, my portfolio works doesn’t show anymore. I’ve hidden the preloder for my pages not to stay blocked, but even with that solution my works doesn’t show.

Do you have an idea if it’s still Tumblr’s API that is still down, or if it’s something else ?

Thanks in advance.

Baires

Yes, I know I’m aware. Tumblr just pushed a new API . I will have to re-write the main script. Stay tuned

Hi Baries,

I’m wanting to know if you fixed the new Tumblr API issue that @afoucher pointed out?

Does the theme still work properly? Will you continue to support future updates if Tumblr makes additional changes to the API ?

Have you made any new updates recently to the theme?

Thanks, Josh

Baires

Hi,

Thanks for interest. I’ve been working non-stop for the last 3 weeks, that’s why I couldn’t update the theme.

The Theme works perfectly, there was a glitch when Tumblr release the new API , but now everything is fine.

Of course I will continue supporting this theme (and the others). I will start working with new API within the next week or so.

Hi mate, just letting you know that I just fell in love (and off the chair) with the “Bear with me” label on the preloader. :D Beautiful theme also. :)

Glad you like it!
