Hi! Awesome theme! Any way of getting google maps under “contact”?

Hi there!

Well, it’s not a theme feature, so you will have to edit the theme markup to insert the Google map code on the relevant location, and possibly add some custom CSS to make it responsive. This article may be of help:


Hello, How do I withdraw the button “follow us” and the logo tumblr staying on the top right?


Hey there,

If you want to hide the Tumblr controls, all you need to do is add the following to your Custom CSS:

#tumblr_controls {
    display: none !important;

Hope that helps!

Hi congratulations for your work!!

I have three questions:

1-When I click on image portfolio expansor.The images comes out of box expansion.

2-How I can see box “Ask Us Anything ” in section contact?

3-Is possible make this theme responsive?

Thank you so much



1) This issue was fixed with the v1.1.0 update I believe. Make sure you’re running the latest version of the theme. Just download the files again and repeat the installation steps to update it.

2) On the Settings page for your blog (https://www.tumblr.com/settings), make sure you have Let people ask questions enabled.

3) The theme is responsive already. On the Advanced options section of the customizer, make sure Use default mobile theme is disabled.


is this theme seo optimized?

Hi there,

The theme wasn’t built with SEO specifically in mind. It follows best practices regarding markup, level 1 heading tags are use on each section; The title meta tag uses the post’s summary on permalink pages. Other than that, nothing specific has been done to optimize for SEO, besides the stuff Tumblr does by default.

Best way to optimize for a particular keyword would be to include it on the site domain, blog title and description, and on the posts contents.

To be honest, the portfolio section isn’t very SEO friendly, as all posts after the first page are loaded dynamically using Ajax. and that could be considered a drawback.

Thanks for your interest!

hi sir.. is it able to add a scrolling parallaz on this theme?? if it can, where should i get it??

Hi there,

I haven’t looked in codecanyon, but there are several parallax scripts on the link I posted, and you’re free to integrate them with your site. I as mentioned, you should enlist the help of a developer, you can’t expect to include the script and have it work magically.


ok sir.. i will hire a developer to improve the site :D thanks for an info :D cheers

No problem! Good luck :)

Hello there,

Is it possible to remove the space between the portfolio thumbnails?

Hi there,

The portfolio expander needs that space in order to work and look right, so I wouldn’t recommend removing the gutter unless the Ajax expander is disabled and projects are displayed on their own permalink page (when Enable Ajax Expander is off).

If you disable the expander, you should be able to remove the gutter by adding the following to your Custom CSS, under “Advanced options” on the customizer:

.portfolio-gutter {
    margin-left: 0;

#portfolio-grid .grid-cell {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;

Hope that helps!

Hello everyone!

The v1.1.4 update, issued on March 23, fixes some layout issues on mobile devices, specifically on iOS Chrome. I urge all users to keep their themes up to date by simply downloading the newest files and repeating the installation steps (copy + paste the new HTML code on the customizer). Your theme options and Custom CSS will be preserved :)

If you still encounter any issues, please report them using the contact form on the item support page.


Hi, I love your theme. I’ve run into issues with it on the iphone. Every item in the portfolio opens in a new page. Is this a feature that can be disabled after purchasing?


Hi there!

On viewports that are 1024px wide or less (phones and tablets), the default behaviour is to bypass the Ajax expander and open the project details like regular links. IMO this provides a better experience as scrolling inside the details panel becomes less problematic.

You can however enable the AJAX expander for mobile, by toggling the option Enable Ajax On Mobile.

The docs are available online if you want to get familiar with the theme before committing: http://bit.ly/1G8xnT8


hello.. wanna buy this. can i use this in blogger ? thank youuu

Hi there! Sorry, you’ll only be able to install this theme on a Tumblr blog. Kind regards.

Hello! :) I just bought your pretty theme and I have already few questions, I would be grateful for your help.

1. Is it possible to hide a button “follow”? I’d like to use my blog only as a portfolio, not for usual blog to like/post/reblog tons of stuff. 2. Is it possible to change the position and number of sections? Like, adding another services section and for example put it in different place, for example in the end of page? 3. On the visual example of your theme in the services section is visible the circle suggesting to click and swipe to see more, in my theme it is possible too, yet I don’t have that circle visible and I’m afraid some people would not notice it’s possible to swipe the image to see more examples. Is it a bug, or I need to enable it somehow? I am sorry, but English is not my native language and I can’t explain better what have I on thought!

Sorry for asking that much. The theme is really great, allows tons of good things and indeed can be wonderful for a portfolio! Thank you, please have a good day!

Hi there,

Thanks for your purchase! I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the theme already :)

Support is better conducted via email, so please send me a quick message using the contact form on my profile page http://bit.ly/1SlbfeS

Hi Pixel! Great stuff thanks for your work, I have a question, how can I centralize the copyright text?

Hello there,

Thanks for the kind words!

Just paste the this snippet into Advanced options > Add Custom CSS on the customizer:

.footer-bottom .credits {
    display: none;

.footer-bottom .copy {
    float: none;
    text-align: center;

Hope that helps!

Hi Pix,

Amazing theme thanks.

I have a question, it is possible to expand the instragram photostream across the whole space in the footer instead of how is in the default state, as I am not using the twitter feed widget.


It should be possible. Try adding this to your Custom CSS:

.footer-middle .grid-wrap {
    margin-left: 0;

.footer-middle .grid-cell {
    width: 100%;
    padding-left: 0;

Hi there!

I really love the UMO Folio theme, but I also want to be able to make text posts. I’ve read that this theme isn’t ideal for blogging, but it’s still do-able by making a redirect page to another blog. Are there any other ways to implement blogging/text posts because I’d really love to buy this theme, but that’s the only thing holding me back. Also, do you have any examples of websites that use this theme and also have a blog section?

Thanks, Joey

Hi Joey,

Thanks for your interest :)

You’re correct, the theme only supports photo, audio and video posts (and quotes for the testimonials section). I’d love to be able to support text, link and chat posts, but in tumblr you have a single loop with all your posts lumped into it, and those don’t fit the concept of the portfolio grid and expander.

The solution mentioned on the docs involves entering a different URL pointing to your blog, then a link to said blog would appear on the navigation bar on the main site. Although this blog would be using a different theme and be on a separate domain, you could customize its colors to make it feel more connected.

I know it’s not ideal, but at the moment there’s no other way to have a portfolio and a blog at the same time.

I sent you some links via email.

Best regards,

Hello I just bought your theme. But I can not open either file of “theme”. Please help me. Thank you

Thanks for your purchase! The file you downloaded is a simple Zip file. What operating system are you on? Any operating system should have compression tools to create and open Zip files.

Inside the folder there are two files, same name and content, different file extension, .html or .txt. You need to open either one of those and copy+paste its contents to install the theme. If you’re on a Mac I suggest you use TextWrangler to open the files.

The documentation for the theme is available online as well, please check the Installation section.

If you’re still having trouble, please use the form on my profile page to send me a message.


I this out of the box or do I need to know how to code some stuff to use it as shown in the demo?

Hi there,

You don’t need to know about coding — everything is handled via regular posts and customizer settings/options.

Keep in mind the theme only supports Photo, Audio and Video posts (and Quote posts to feed the testimonials section).

Of course, to get it to look like the demo, you need to create some posts to populate your portfolio and enable the right settings on the customizer.

You can check the online docs to get a better idea of how it works:


Cheers :)

Links in Tumblr now use “t.umblr”-redirect. Is there a way to avoid that? It causes my a href=”javascript:goback()” links not working.

Are you reporting an issue with the theme or is this a separate matter?

I’m not sure you mean Link posts or redirect pages, but I think Tumblr always used some sort of redirect, or at least has been doing so for quite some time.

I don’t think there’s a way to disable that behavior since Tumblr just outputs those links, it’s not a theme setting.

Hello, i just purchased this theme, however there’s a few things i that make me stuck:-

1) How to change Home BG to my preferred image? 2) How to put title on the the photosets, like i see in your demos? 3) How to change corner for portfolio filter buttons from rounded to rectangle like in your demos?

Thanks in advance. :)

Ahh, it’s ok, the problem’s solve after reading your documentations…:)

However, a new problem come up. Looks like my site doesn’t load the theme automatically when i’m using phone (test on 2 android phones and 1 iphone). I need to request desktop site to load the theme. Is the theme just compatible on tablet? Cause it seems OK when using iPad2…or is there any other settings to enable the mobile (phone) version?

Hi there,

Thanks for your purchase!

I tried to be as comprehensible as possible while writing the documentation, must answers should be found there.

I think you just need to disable the option “Use default mobile theme” on the customizer’s “Advanced options” section, so the custom theme is used on phones as well.

Let me know if that helps,
