Hi! Quick question. Can I set the background to a looping video full screen instead of image?

ThemeZilla

Hi, unfortunately not, the backgrounds are limited to images only.

Just purchased! Been waiting for this to launch, to get the portfolio build back on track. Great work by all the team!

ThemeZilla

Awesome, glad you’re liking it!

Great theme. Presales questions. Can the front page mosaic slider be configured to display latest blog posts instead of portfolio items?

Thanks.

ThemeZilla

Hi, unfortunately not, not out of the box anyway. It could well be be possible with a little code tweaking but it’s not something which is included by default.

Super theme, quick question: can this template be used outside Wordpress? I eman as an HTML template. I have no experience with WP.

Thanks!

ThemeZilla

Hi, unfortunately not, this is for WordPress only.

I love the template, the only thing is clicking on an item in the portofolio, I think there needs to be a button to return. I saw the one at the bottom, but for the average client, I think there needs to be some “x” button or something. Also a button to fiter. Not saying it has to be like the others, but an easier way to go through portfolio.

ThemeZilla

Thanks, appreciate the feedback. We’ll certainly keep it in mind for any future updates :)

Hi, great work, love your themes. Just a question, is it possible to set the background to a light color and font type to a dark one?

ThemeZilla

Hi, you can set the bg to anything you like from the theme options. To change the text however, you would need to edit the theme’s CSS . Fairly straightforward changes.

I have been waiting for a theme like this for a long time! Really Great! Expect some more purchases from me as I can see using this on multiple sites I am developing :)

ThemeZilla

Awesome! Glad you’re enjoying it :)

How can I make the background to solid colour? When I update the css it changes to some weird colour…

thx

Looking at the demo, there seems to be a strange bug, only on Safari (works fine on Chrome and Firefox). When I hover over one of the Latest Blog Posts thumbnails, the background flashes. It doesn’t do that for any other links or images though. Will this be fixed pretty soon?

Also, does homepage and portfolio have the option for a lightbox function, so that we can view the work on the same page instead of having to click through to the project page?

ThemeZilla

Very much depends on your skillset. I would imagine a developer could have this done in an hour or two depending on your requirements.

Default-user

Cool. Thanks for your reply.

FYI , on the Archives and Blog pages, chunks of bg stars off missing and then pops back, overlaps some other parts of the bg and takes away some existing bg when I hover over certain links. I’m guessing that it’s the same bug as the homepage flicker. I’d like to purchase the theme but I think I’ll hold back until this issue is fixed, as it is actually really jarring on those pages. Do you have a timeline for when a fix would be out?

ThemeZilla

I can’t replicate the additional issues but an update is in the queue. The demo is now showing the latest version.

Hello,

Firstly great theme. I just purchased but the highlight colour does not seem to be changing.

I have changed in admin but it still show up yellow.

Any ideas?

Hi, really like this but before purchasing I had a few questions. Sorry if these were answered but I didn’t see them.

I was wondering if there was a share feature or any social features that could be added to blog posts? I didn’t see them in the demo.

If I needed to for some reason, could I add comments to the individual portfolio pages?

Thanks, Peter

ThemeZilla

Hi Peter,

1. There are no sharing features built in but there are a vast amount of plugins out there which you can use.

2. Sure, you will need to add in the appropriate WP function to include comments but it shouldn’t be too much trouble.

Hi I really like this theme! I have a question before purchasing.. In the demo the background changes with every blog post (it uses the first blog post image I guess). I really like that effect and I wonder if this is in the default settings? Because I saw a blog with that this theme, but the background didn’t change on every blog post.

Thanks

ThemeZilla

Hi, you can use a default background image for every page on the site however every page/post/portfolio has the ability to have it’s own background. In short, every page background can be different.

The backgrounds are uploaded while editing the page, they are not the first image used in the post.

Default-user

Thanks for replying. One more question, does the background automatically get the blur effect?

ThemeZilla

No it does not, you can use any type of image you like, sharp, blurred, solid colour etc.

Awsome theme! Quick question, the background. Does it adjust to screen resolution (or is there anyway to do this or to change background depending on resolution). Thanks!

ThemeZilla

Hi, you may need to clarify exactly what you mean. The background however can be static, tiled, or full screen. The full screen method ensures that the image expands/contracts to always fit the visible screen – as per the demo.

Looks nice, but after installing and trying it out I’m not impressed.

1. First install failed completely. Had to delete and upload via wordpress.

2. Can’t change the font?

3. Background image won’t display, no way to manually enter a url (and the theme uploader doesn’t add the background image to the Media Library so can’t see if the file has permissions issues)

4. Dummy content… you mentioned above that it can be found in the support forums…. I can’t see it. Why not include the xml in the download like everyone else?

5. Shortcodes.. download an unsupported plugin… feels lazy to me.

Honestly I have bought and used literally DOZENS of wordpress themes (see my purchase history) and Volumes feels like an amateur attempt.

For $40 I expect a well built and complete template.

ThemeZilla

Howdy,

1. You managed to get it installed, great. Installation can go wonky for many reasons (normally wrong folder/zip uploaded), not sure we could troubleshoot your specific scenario without having seen it first hand.

2. You can change the fonts used by editing the theme’s CSS . We can give you pointers on doing so in the support forum – http://www.themezilla.com/support/

3. Not strictly correct. You can enter an image URL manually and the images are saved to the media library. You may have an issue which is stopping them being saved however. If you hit us up in the support forums we take a look.

4. It can indeed be found in the support forums. You will need to be logged in see the sticky post. It is not included in the download to deter pirated copies of the theme.

5. This is indeed a supported plugin for our customers, this takes place in the support forums as stated on the download page.

In short, all of your issues can be resolved. Support for all our themes is conducted through the ThemeZilla support forums, if you’d like to start a new thread over there either myself or another member of the support team can take a look at your issue(s) :)

Also, am I missing something obvious or am I really unable to change the color of ANYTHING except the highlight/hover color?

ThemeZilla

You can change the accent colour of the theme with a colour picker. Any other cosmetic changes should be made with CSS .

“2. You can change the fonts used by editing the theme’s CSS . We can give you pointers on doing so in the support forum – http://www.themezilla.com/support/"

Sorry Orman, I read your entire reply and I all I saw was – go to the support forum.

So I did. I searched for ‘font’ to see what the CSS was needed to hard code the font and nothing came up except an unanswered post about font size.

http://www.themezilla.com/support/search?Search=font

So what am I missing?

ThemeZilla

Honestly, I’m just trying to help, if you start a thread of your own in the support forum explaining your issues/problems then we can try and figure them out.

The reason the forums are used is becasue we have over 22k customers and supporting them all via TF comments is virtually impossible. There are also 6 of us which monitor the forums vs the one of me which is able to log into these comments. It’s likely your issues will be resolved much quicker in the forums as we’re all in different timezones.

P.S. The thread you pointed to is in fact answered and resolved, you will need to be logged in to see the full conversation.

I’ll join the support forum and ask again.

BUT

My question was about changing the font typeface, even if someone has asked a question about font size and had it resolved there will still be no information on changing the font.

2. You can change the fonts used by editing the theme’s CSS . We can give you pointers on doing so in the support forum – http://www.themezilla.com/support/"

So what is the CSS to change the font?

PS the reason that most authors allow this to be modified from a control panel is that editing someone else’s CSS is a sure fire way to end up with broken styles….

ThemeZilla

That’s right, not everybody’s questions will always relate to your issues but you’re more than welcome to start a new thread and ask us specific questions about problems which are effecting you and your site.

Look forward to seeing you in the forums.

Orman,

Firstly kudos for replying to these comments on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

The only reason I’m being difficult is that you stated that there was an answer to my question in the support forum, which there clearly isn’t.

As I said in my first post, these options are ones which I would expect to see in a Theme’s control panel, especially from an Elite Author and from a theme costing $40

My advice to anyone looking to purchase this theme is that if you love the way it looks out of the box then buy it, if you want to heavily personalise it then buyer beware.

ThemeZilla

Thanks for the feedback, maybe crossed wires somewhere as I didn’t state there was an answer to your question in the forums, but that we could certainly help you out in the forums should you start a new thread.

In any case, hope you’re getting on well with it and if you need help you know where we are.

Hello!

Great theme! I was wondering though, is it possible to install the dummy content from the demo site? In which case – how?

Thanks!

ThemeZilla

Hey, thanks. Sure, you can grab the demo data from the support forums – http://www.themezilla.com/support/ (you will need to be logged in to get access to the files)

Hi Orman,

I just tested the demo site in a Samsung Galaxy Nexus to get a real idea of how it’d look on a mobile device.

Although the browser resizing break points work on the desktop, unfortunately it doesn’t render properly in either the native or Google Chrome browsers, particularly when switching from portrait to landscape.

I don’t know if you did any handset testing, but I just thought you should know.

Cheers.

ThemeZilla

Did you close the demo bar at the top of the page? That will stop the resizing from working correctly.
