Hi – I am a registered member on your forum but today when I logged into your forum I couldn’t see/post anymore. It says “This forum is for verified customers only.” and suggests me to log in again and again. Can you please help me with that? My user id: yanjieli. Much thanks.

Hi there :) I downloaded the zilla shortcodes plugin but the tabs plugin displays a different id every time I refresh. Sound familiar? Anything I can do to fix it?

Hi Orman, I purchased your theme viewport, when installing it in wordpress, I get this error message: The package can’t be installed, the theme is missing style.css. Theme installation didn’t finished.

How can I fix this?

Thanks rgds, Rudy

Great design on this theme. Thinking about using it for a multi-author blog. A few quick questions:

1. Is there an option for author bio at the bottom of each post?

2. On pages and posts and categories, is the full size photo header image required?

3. What is the behavior if the image is too small to span the browser window? Is it stretched automatically?

OrmanClark

Hi,

1. Not built into the theme as it stands no. It’s fairly simple to add though, we can show you what WP functions to use to show it.

2. No, it’s completely optional.

3. Yes, it is stretched to fit automatically (while keeping the correct aspect ratio)

HI, I love this theme so much!!! But when I run a website speed test from google, it said “Combine images into CSS sprites, Serve scaled images” is high priority, as the an overall PageSpeed Score of 85 (out of 100).

also, i ran another test, it is YSlow Grade just C. (A the best)

can you do anything to make this theme SEO optimized? I really want to buy this one! but also I am concern about website speed.

thanks!

Hi, the demo displays the theme out of the box as it were. After purchasing you’re more than welcome to use a caching plugin which can help minify code, combine css and js files, take advantage of a CDN and use various other techniques to optimise performance. Even with a caching plugin you will be hard pushed to get a perfect 100 score.

We use the W3 Total Cache plugin on our own sites with a score of 93/100

The “previous” navigation button on the POPULAR WIDGET has a little CSS bug in it. The right border is a little too long, and stretches downward bellow the boundary of the box. Also when you hover over it the accent yellow color does not fully align with the square button underneath, there is a black gap on the top border. The “next” navigation button looks fine though. Maybe you could add a fix in the next update.

Great theme by the way, I look forward to buying it! :)

OrmanClark

Looks like a small CSS discrepancy in FireFox. Will catch it in the next update :)

Yep, exactly, on FireFox only. Thanks so much Orman! :)

Inspiring theme. I was wondering if the theme was compatible with IE7 ? I can’t get the slider to display in the demo for IE7 ; otherwise works beautifully in all modern browsers.

OrmanClark

Hi, it’s not 100% compatible out of the box with IE7 no, IE8 and up. With a bit of jiggery it could be compatible with 7 should that be important to you, you’d just need to make the tweaks with a developer.

When viewed on a tablet or mobile device in the vertical orientation, all the sidebar information vanishes. Being able to access things like the social widget at all times is pretty important. Is there a way to include a pop-up/drop-down or any other way to regain access to that content?

OrmanClark

Hi, the sidebar hides itself in order to served an optimised version of the site (it’s still visible in landscape view). If you wanted that content in portrait then you would need to modify the theme’s CSS . Your proficiency with CSS would determine how easy/difficult that would be.

Just a quick question… can the large home image slider pull images and content from other than the blog? (ie: custom content slider?)

Thanks for the info!

OrmanClark

Hi, not out of the box no, the slider is made up of featured posts. To add any other content would take modification of the theme files.

Hi Orman,

I LOVE how this looks! :) May I ask some questions prior to purchase:

1) In iPad view, can the ‘menu’ icon be eliminated and the regular navigation still be displayed? (mine will be short enough to be perfect for iPad view, but I’d like the icon to appear in iPhone/smartphone view)

2) How do the videos get added to a post? Is there a special entry field for it in the new post page? Do we have the option to include a ‘thumbnail’ for the main page (it looks like there are uploaded thumbnails for the videos on the main page/archive)

3) Can the width of the post entry area be 100% (or adjusted) in the iPad/iPhone views. The margins/padding are a little too much for me in those views but seem okay in regular browser mode. I’d like it to be more full width in these views due to the small screen format.

4) The images look great in iPad, but massive in a regular browser. I’m curious if we can adjust the slider/image/video on homepage and posts to be less height? Is this a theme option?

5) On post pages, can the sidebar be ‘turned off’ so the post is full width?

6) Is there a way to make the slider transition smoother so there is no ‘white space’ between transitions? Like how it transitions on http://getpocket.com/

Thanks Orman!

Now some comments :) I love that you give the three options for the main page (what I’ve been looking for!). One thing I’d like to add is that it would be great if you guys add more ‘microdata’ and such to the code/theme options. I always have to go back in and add microdata (etc) so that it appears correctly when checking against Google webmaster tools microdata checker. This helps us with the Google search engine. Also perhaps something in the dashboard theme options where we can pop in our Google+ code as well (for the author matching that Google is using now in search results) to refer back to our Google profiles/pages. Those would be great additions so I don’t have to much with the code all the time :D (I’d be glad to send you this if you’d like, but I know you guys know how to do it also)

OrmanClark

Hi,

Generally, the theme(s) come as per the demo. If it’s not in the demo then it’s more than likely possible to achieve, yet need some sort of modification.

1. It can yes, but you would need to edit the JS/CSS to tell the site not to switch to the smaller nav – a small change.

2. Yes, there is a custom met box for videos, you can upload your own video files or embed from a 3rd party like YT or Vimeo. The thumbnails are the “featured” images for the post.

3. You would need to adjust the CSS to change the margins.

4. It’s not a theme option no, but you can of course change the CSS to make the height smaller.

5. Not out of the box no. You can of course hide the sidebar with CSS and further adjust the post width again via CSS .

6. The slider uses the transition effect as seen in the demo. Any further transitions e.g. crossfade would need to be added by a developer.

Also, thanks for your suggestions, much appreciated.

Thanks for the reply Orman! That answered all my questions. I had one more, though. I’m digging the little icons on the thumbnails to indicate if it is a image, music, or video post. Is it possible to change those to a custom icon for certain categories (so if it is lets say a “review” article, it would have an icon, etc.). I understand you don’t do custom work for the templates, but wondering if you could suggest either a plugin, or recommend a way to achieve this due to your experience? I’ve seen this before on a few other WP sites, but not sure if this is something really custom…or built in. I’d like to keep it within the style of this theme, though (i.e. small like the icons you have), which I love. Thanks!

OrmanClark

Sure, I think this would be completely possible with some modification to the theme files. I would imagine a developer could have this wrapped up within half a day or so.

Hi, can the Viewport theme allow for multiple authors, each with their own author home page? Thanks!

OrmanClark

Hi, it can indeed yes :)

Thank you Orman! Good to hear. Do you accept projects to modify the Viewport theme? If so, how should I contact you in private?

OrmanClark

Unfortunately we do not take on customisation work, not enough hours in the day I’m afraid.

Is there a way to dynamically sort the posts by categories on the home page? It looks like they are ordered by post date only with no sort feature.

OrmanClark

Hi, they are indeed ordered by date. There’s no “option” to group them by category but you may be able to achieve that by modifying the theme files.

Hi,

Is it possible to make the image/header slider fixed width and height easily?

Thanks :)

OrmanClark

Hi, it’s possible to do if you edit the CSS yes. We’ve helped others do exactly that in our support forums – http://www.themezilla.com/support/

Hey Orman, great theme. If no posts are chosen to be “featured” does the featured post box above the footer disappear?

Just when I thought Artiste was my fav, you go and pull this theme out of your hat. Damn.

OrmanClark

Hey, the footer carousel of featured posts is optional, you can enable/disable it from the theme options.

Is the home look customizable? If I want to have links to static pages instead of blog posts, is that doable?

OrmanClark

Hi, not without modification I’m afraid. The homepage(s) work completely as per the demo, if you needed them to function any differently then you’d need to customise the theme.

Hi Orman,

Is it possible to turn off the side bar in a blog post? so the post is full width just like a full width page?

Hi Orman,

Firstly – what a beautiful theme you’ve designed. It’s pretty much the one I’ve been dreaming of!

I was wondering:

1. if it’s possible to include a photostream from Instagram? (in addition to the Flickr one I see in the demo.)

2. how much freedom do we have to change the fonts? Especially in the menu up top.

Thank you!

OrmanClark

Howdy,

1. It’s not possible to add instagram out of the box no, you would need to have that added by a developer (or plugin)

2. You can change any part of the theme via CSS . If you need to change the fonts, colours etc, then you are free to do so.
