Hi Orman,

I’ve purchased a couple of your works already (Garnish and Premium Pixels) and interested in purchasing this as well. Just one quick question:

Is it possible to add banner ads on the theme? I know I can add widget on blog and static pages but I’m just wondering if we can add a banner on the homepage and/or on the picture post?

Thanks and regards,

Patrick

ThemeZilla

Hi Patrick, there are no widget areas on the homepage and so if you were looking to add an “ad widget” you would need to add a widget location first – a fairly simple process.

Orman- Great themes. I’m working with a client on setting up the Viewfinder theme, and for some reason the navigation doesn’t show up at the top. Pages exist already, but no matter how many are added, they don’t show up. I’ve gone through all the settings and can’t find a reason that it doesn’t appear. Any idea?

nice theme. when i click on any on the top category like this http://themes.premiumpixels.com/viewfinder/ why the images are all over and not in order?

thank

ThemeZilla

Hi, the thumbs in the demo are ordered randomly, you can choose to order them by date, name or random from the theme options.

i see. but what there is a lot of space between each image? this is something we can control right ?

ThemeZilla

There isn’t a lot of space between images, the images are ordered in a grid until you filter them by type. When you filter by type, the images which do not fall under that type fade away.

Is it compatible with Chrome? Also do I need to use a FTP to upload the theme to WP or can I upload it right in WP?

ThemeZilla

Yep, the theme is compatible with Chrome and you have the option of either install method as the files and zip are included.

Can i play a Flash as a popup? We want to show case our work from videos, flash, and multiple images. Love your homepage thumbnails. Assume those are individual post?

Help with the questions so we can make a decision.

Thanks

ThemeZilla

The images are a custom post type as not to interfere with the blog however unfortunately the overlay is limited to single photos only.

I’m thinking of using this theme to showcase my illustrations. I’m wondering if the photo categories – Animal, Wedding etc. are locked into the theme. Can I assign my own categories? – BookCover or Concept for example and still be able to use the filtering on the homepage or would it still say Animal, Wedding etc.

Secondly, is it possible to have the first page a single image (preferably randomly chosen) that then reveals the thumbnail homepage gallery when clicked?

Thanks

ThemeZilla

Hi,

1. Yes you can assign your own categories and the filtering will then use your chosen categories.

2. If you wanted to make a splash page like you have described you would need to modify the theme as it’s not something which is included out the box.

Hi. Great theme.

Uh, how do I get the thumbnail to go to fullsize photo when clicked (like in your demo). Now, when I click a thumbnail, it goes to a comments page.

Thanks in advance for helping a novice. BK

ThemeZilla

Hey, you can enable the overlay in the them options. If you need any more help with the theme, feel free to jump into the forums http://support.premiumpixels.com

Hi Orman,

Curious, is there a bulk upload feature yet for this theme?

Do any bulk upload plugins work with Viewfinder?

Thanks!

Joey

ThemeZilla

Hi Joey, you can bulk upload any number of images to WordPress through the media section, however, you still need to assign each of these images to a “post” to be able to give them a title, description etc.

So, with this particular themes, it is one post per photo.

Hello, great work! good design!

One question is it possible customize viewfinder like pictree theme or sidewinder. Big images in one line horizontal elastic?

Thanks Leonardo

ThemeZilla

Hi Leonardo, the theme works just as the demo, if it is not shown in the demo then effectively it is not possible without modification. You can show much larger images however they appear in a grid, not a horizontal slider.

i am looking for more detailed instructions for this theme. I do not do this everyday and it would be nice if people that build themes would make a video of how to set the theme up as shown in LIVE VIEW mode.

I would buy more themes and recommend those themes that are easier to use to people I know resulting in more sales to you. Not all of us online are webmasters and anything you can do to make the theme a) easier to use like from the homepage options window allow you to upload your pictures and pick the pictures you would want to display on the home page. b) again with better instructions on how to set this theme up ex. video walk through and screen shoots.

I love the look of this theme but can not get it to work as you have shown it here

thanx greg

Hi Greg, appreciate your comments and feedback. If you start a new thread in our support forum then the support team can answer any questions you may have and help you setup the theme.

Hi Orman,

This theme is so lovely, but was so disappointed to find out this is a one post per photo. For a gallery theme, it’s very non-intuitive method for uploading many images. I would suggest integration with gallery management plugins like nextgen gallery for future themes.

Cheers!

ThemeZilla

Thanks for the feedback. We have built a multiple (unlimited) image upload system in our most recent theme and will of course be looking into how it can be integrated into others.

Hi,

How to get the sample date please ?

Hello. Can I add the effect “lightbox” when I open the pictures?

tnx.

ThemeZilla

Hey, the images on the homepage open in an overlay which renders a lightbox unnecessary. It would be possible to change to the use of a lightbox however it’s not something which is included by default. It would take modification.

Hey, is it possible to add a link to the overlay of the image which will redirect you to the original post? I mean having both overlay and original post is possible? Great theme btw

ThemeZilla

Hey, unfortunately not out of the box no. I’m sure it is possible, however, you would need to modify the theme files. A task for a developer if you are not proficient with PHP yourself.

Default-user

I was hoping that it was a pretty easy task on which I might get help from the authors of the theme after purchasing. Cause you already have the option to display either overlay or the original post. It should not be hard to put a link to the overlay or is it such a challenging task that requires extra budget besides the theme’s price?

ThemeZilla

I believe you’re asking to link the image in the overlay to the post. So from grid > overlay > post. Yes, seems pretty simple task, we can help you out with that. Going the other way e.g. post > overlay is much more tricky and would require the help of a developer.

Yes. There will be an overlay first and right next to the photo, I would like to add a link, for ex:”Details” which will redirect you to the original post. That is what I need. So as you described it will be overlay>post.

Another question is that is it possible add a function in order to scroll the grid with mouse wheel?

ThemeZilla

The mouse wheel scroll may well be possible, it’s not something which is included out of the box, but a developer may be able to help you out with that.

love the look, can lightbox or fancybox be used for the galleries?

ThemeZilla

Hey, the galleries use an overlay where the photos are pulled in with Ajax which makes a lighbox unnecessary. If you would like to replace that functionality with a lightbox however then you would need to modify the theme files.

hey Orman. Great theme! I just noticed today as I’m populating the home page, when you grab the window to make it smaller or larger, all the thumbs align themselves to the right side of the page. This is not something I wanted… kind of looks like a glitch somewhere. Let me know. http://www.serenakabat-zinn.com/en/

oops. sorry… doing now. thanks!

Hi. Nice theme.

Is it possible to change the aspect ratio of the thumbnails on the homepage. I would like to be able to make rectangles instead of squares.

thanks, Dan

ThemeZilla

Hi Dan, it would be possible but you would need to dip into the code. It’s a relatively simple change we can help you out with should you need it.
