Hey guys, we cant find at the theme the page http://themes.opendept.net/velo/blog/

Can you tell me how to get it?

opendept

Hey there,

All you have to do is create a Blog page. You can find a quick guide regarding this subject in the included Documentation.

This is STUNNING! Can a user navigate up/down AND left/right? or is it just up/down?

I see arrows for both directions but it seems like which ever we click it just goes up and down?

One other thing. Can each section have a custom background IMAGE (I understand it can be a custom colour).

Thanks

opendept

Hey there,

Thank you! :)

1) The Home’s navigation can only be vertical (by default).

2) Yes, every Home Section can use differents Background Colors and Background Images. Pages, Posts and Portfolio Items can use different Background Colors as well.

Don’t hesitate to ask if you got more questions!

Ciao, complimenti per il tema! è bello vedere che in Italia ci siano persone in gamba che sfornano queste belle cose!

Vorrei alcune delucidazioni prima dell’acquisto: 1: posso gestire il tema come figlio? 2: il menù è gestibile anche senza icone, quindi solo con il testo o testo e icone?. 3: in versione mobile, è possibile lasciare visibile l’header.

Grazie in anticipo e complimenti ancora!

opendept

Ciao e grazie! :)

1) Sì.

2) No, ma è possibile modificando il foglio di stile del tema.

3) È possibile, ma dovrai personalizzare il foglio di stile del tema.

Hey there,

Happy to hear that! :)

That’s odd. Which version of the theme are you currently using? Can you please make sure to disable any WordPress Plugin currently active? Thanks.

Thnaks I resolve it, if you delete the pages link to setting the homepage disapears, I got back them to life and issue is gone. thanks

ignore the previous post I have found a way around it.

Now my problem is how do I modify the homepage template navigation? it isnt setting as any of my menus

if you’re on the homepage it shows the default “about contact latest news” links in the navigation menu

but if you visit any other pages it recognizes the menu I have set as the primary…

how do I fix this?

opendept

Hello there,

The menu of the Home is generated automatically depending on your Home Sections, while the external menu can be configured in Appearance – Menus as normal.

To add custom links to the Home you must edit the theme’s file “template-home.php”.

-S

hi can you add drop down menus to the home page that take you to inner pages not on the ‘one page’ homepage? Thanks Paul

opendept

Hey Paul,

No dropdown menus included by default, sorry.

Hi, I love your theme and have installed and am currently tweaking it for my use. I have one question at the moment…

How do I prevent the page title on pages from showing up?

opendept

Hey there,

Happy to hear that!

To remove titles for pages you must edit the theme’s file named “page.php”.

My boss is very interested in purchasing this theme his only question is can there be subpages within the main pages. He wants to make it into a useable site and I am sure there is since I looked at the portfolio subpages but I just want to double check! Looks great though!

opendept

Hey there,

Yes, the Home is simply a separate section of your website. The theme supports all standard features of a classic WordPress website.

From the Live Preview: Page, Portfolio, Blog.

Hi!! I’m obout to buy this theme, just want to know… Is it possible to place a gallery videoplayer plugin in any page? This is a very important issue for me, since it will be our super super main section! :) Thanks!!

Hello there,

By default, you can use YouTube and Vimeo videos in any Post or Portfolio Item by using the “Video” Post Format. From the Live Preview: Video Post, Video Portfolio Item.

You can also display any Post in your Home’s Section, by using the “Stream” feature.

To add a Slider you might have to use a WordPress Plugin, but please note that we do not provide support for external components.

Hi! Is it possible to open a page when clicking a portafolios thumbnail? I want the user to go straight to a single page such as “About us” on clicking the thumb.

Regards, nice theme!!

opendept

Hello!

Yes, using the “Link” Format you can add a Custom Address to your Portfolio Item.

-S

Hi, I have found some bugs with this theme and have some feature requests.

First, how can I show all portfolio items, and not limit the number to six? It would be very nice if the number of portfolio items could be changed in the theme settings in a future update to the theme.

Second, if a portfolio item is set as “LINK” and then updated to “standard” or “gallery” the change does not take affect. This appears to be a programming error.

Also, when I click into some sub pages, the main navigation disappears. How do I make the navigation stay visible on all pages? This also feels like a programming error.

There also is an issue with the colors in the comments. The colors in the comments are too light, not enough contrast to read the text. I can make this change to the CSS, but it would be better to include this in the theme by default.

I LOVE the look and feel of this theme, but it does need some improvement on the backend to include more features from the control panel.

Thanks!

opendept

Hey there,

The theme’s Home is a standalone page of your website which shows a series of sections all present in the same page, therefore the Menu directs to those sections (by scrolling vertically). The external menu can be configured freely, so if you wish, you can simply add links to the Home’s sections or add links to different pages as we did on our Live Preview.

You can assign an Icon to any Menu Item. When adding a Menu Item, please make sure to save your Menu to be able to assign one (as described in the included Documentation).

I understand how the theme is designed. What I am saying is: it’s not a great way to use WordPress. The integration could/should be better. What you do with this information is up to you.

opendept

Thanks for sharing your opinion.

Hello, I’m very happy with the theme. But I’ve got one question: when I try to build a sitemap with the plugin “Google XML Sitemaps”, it won’t register the portfolio items. These items are the most important part of my site so I would really love them to be in the sitemap. Do you know how I can get them into my sitemap (which I am going to implement into Google Webmaster Tools)? Thanks!

opendept

Hello there,

Happy to hear that! The theme uses a WordPress function to register a custom post type, so I’m afraid that whether the mentioned plugin supports custom post types or not does not depend on the theme.

If you have any other question, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Hello! You designed a Great theme! I just bought it and I’m going to play with it now. Just have one small question: How can you change the scrolling speed between page? Thank you very much! :)

opendept

Hello Sir,

Thank you :) I’m afraid that’ll require a customization of a theme’s file. Can you please open a ticket on our Support site so we can give you some instructions? Thanks.

Thanks I will contact you when I need. One more question: When I use section Stream for my page, How can I remove the article that the engine ask me to choose? I just one to have a page like your about page without any article. Thanks!

opendept

Hello,

The “Stream” feature lets you display an existing Portfolio or Article. If you wish to display any other content, simply enter it as you would for a normal page – without selecting the “Stream” or “Cover” option.

Just a quick question, how is it possible to replicate the behaviour shown in the demo : The first section (red one) seems to have a link on the whole section, clicking anywhere on the red background makes you go to the second section. How to do this?

Thanks and amazing theme.

opendept

Hey there,

Thank you for appreciating our work :)

The first section of our Live Preview is a “Cover” Section, and sections using this option can be clicked to automatically skip section. You can enable the “Cover” or “Stream” option to your Home Section while editing it. For more informations, please read the included Documentation (chapter “The Home”).

Question before I buy. For the “blog” (latest news) nav item…it brings you to what I’m thinking is the latest blog entry. Is it easy to make that a “thumbnail” list of blog posts? ...for example like in this theme: http://themes.opendept.net/retro-portfolio/#my-blog or this theme: http://ideanosse.metrothemes.me/#blog

I’m trying to keep the user on this one-page…vs sending them to an “archive” section with a completely different main subnav (it was a little confusing to me what was happening). Btw…once you’re in the blog section, would have been nice to preserve to main nav…and added the subnav of blog categories (vs. replacing the main nav elements). Thanks and great work!

opendept

Hello there,

Thanks! :)

You can manage the Blog’s Menu freely, adding the same items of the Home if you prefer.

An Home Section can display either the latest Article or a specific Article. To display an Articles List you must customize theme’s files, it is quite easy if you’re familiar with WordPress “loops”.

HI, one question, want to increse size of header of the menu, where I can do that? and also how can I replace icons for text in menu, by replace them as a glyph?

opendept

Hello,

You must edit the theme’s stylesheet to customize its appearance, the file to edit is named “style.css” (including plugged fonts like the icon font).

-S

Hello dear themesters,

Thank’s for a great theme, have had a lot of use for it. I’d really like to know more about the mouseover effect in the menu (you know how the menu navigation is icons and on mouseover the little text shows up with the name of the navigation item). Can you point me in a direction where I can do that on some more items on my website? Can the effect be isolated or is it super technical and proprietary?

Thanks guys!

Default-user

awesome man thanks so much.

Do I need to add title to the JQuery code?

opendept

No, you need to add a title attribute to the elements you want to assign a “tooltip” to. In case of a link, use the example written before.

The jQuery snippet doesn’t require any modification, so simply paste it as it is :)

What a lad :) Thanks man!

Hi -

Could you help me extend the header area for a larger logo?

Hey there,

You can edit the theme’s stylesheet (file “style.css”) on line 953.

Hi,

I having trouble getting started. I’ve read the Help.pdf file and although I think I understand the fundamentals I still don’t. Would you happen to have a screencast video that walks us through how to setup a page or two?

Thanks

Hey Steve,

You can import the Sample Data from our Live Preview if you wish to start from a base, it includes all sections and contents. You can find a quick guide on how to import it in the last chapter of the Documentation.
