Hi there, Amazing design. Some questions about available features: 1. Can I create a page listing a specific portfolio category? 2. Can I define somehow works displayed in Home page? 3. Does the theme has some shortcodes included?

Thank you, J

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Portfolio categories are archived by WordPress like this: http://widergrid.wpengine.com/portfolio-category/print/

2. Not currently, for now the homepage shows everything, but we may be able to make this selective in the future.

3. No, just use your favourite short codes plugin instead :)

Cheers

Thank you for the quick answer. For point 2. May I use a Portfolio Category archive page as Home page? I think I could use that as a temporary turn around, not the best but I’d like to give it a try for your theme is really nice. What do you think? Thanks. Julien

Oh btw basic question but colors and fonts custo are included or do I have to modify the CSS files?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Portfolio categories, sadly, cannot be set as the homepage. You could use a redirect plugin to send the homepage to a portfolio category though. But for the best result I’ll be adding some method of selectivity soon.

Colours can be changed in our theme options, fonts can be changed by using a google fonts plugin or CSS modification :)

Unable to install it… :( I download wg to theme folder but nothing in WP.

Hey there,

Please contact me on my ticket service for any support requirements. Please remember to validate your purchase on my ticket system, you currently don’t have a purchase badge for this theme on your comment:

Please be aware I’m unable to help with localhost issues as it’s impossible for me to debug. WG works perfectly and is thoroughly tested by Envato before going live on theme forest, likely your localhost settings are incorrect.

When I was trying to install the theme I’ve got the follow error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home/ziumc061/public_html/carolmacedo.com.br/wp-content/themes/wg 2/ebor_framework/metabox/init.php on line 867

Can you help me with this issue? Thanks,

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Please update your PHP version to at least 5.3, you can do this from your hosting control panel. Anything lower than this is considered a security risk due to PHP 5.2’s age!

Hi there,

I love your theme, seems perfect for my new site. Just a few questions to help me decide whether to buy:

1. Is the footer widgetized?

2. Instead of changing the colour of the header bar, is it possible to upload an image based header instead?

3. Does the homepage only show latest posts, not say a twitter widget or latest tweet? If not, then I’m guessing twitter widget can be included in a sidebar?

Thanks so much for your help!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. No, not currently. At the moment the widget areas are on blog posts and a page with sidebar template.

2. You could do this really easily with a little custom CSS if you needed to, I’d be happy to show you how.

3. No tweet integration I’m afraid, every since the move the v1.1 API I’ve stayed away from twitter, most of the solutions for loading v1.1 API tweets tend to end up causing issues elsewhere in themes. Although ThemeBeans make a really good plugin for a twitter widget.

Cheers

Default-user

Hi, thanks for quick reply, happy to know that an image header can be included and thanks for directing me to Themebeans :) I agree that twitter integration is quite awkward now :/

Just one more question – does each post need an image before it can be featured on the home page? I’m just wondering if a text only post, like an aside or simple quote, could appear on it too?

Thanks for your help!

tommusrhodus

Hey there :)

Ahh, no, sorry, the homepage is designed for visuals only so that the layout can adjust properly. If a featured image is missing from the portfolio post, it will be skipped entirely on the homepage.

In the blog you can use posts without featured images no problem, the blog can also be set as the homepage :)

Cheers

Default-user

Wow that was super fast! Yes I like the blog page a lot too so was thinking about using that as the home page anyway. Thanks v much, I’m pretty sure that it’s going to suit my needs :)

How do I know what size to make the pictures for the homepage? More importantly, how is the layout determined? And can the photos on the homepage be in color instead of B&W?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The homepage images can be either 1, 2 or 3 columns wide as you need in the demo, and the height can be configured on a per image basis :) The theme handles all cropping for you, so all you need to do is upload your picture and set your sizes to whatever you think would look best. This can be changed and tweaked infinitely also.

The layout is run by a layout plugin which seeks to fill gaps to create the tiled effect, so the layout is determined by the current screen width and what content you have in the homepage.

Yep, those photos were B&W when we uploaded them, the theme hasn’t done that. Put colour photos in as you want :)

Hello, I really like your theme and I have a couple of questions before I buy: 1) I read above that you have some options for color changes (background etc). Are the colors of the bode frames around “home”, “blog” etc and the tags that appear on the pictures when the mouse is hovering over also customizable? 2) I am relatively new to WP and themes, but does your support self hosted Video for Portfolio items or do they have to be video from Vimeo, Youtube, etc. 3) The tags that appear on top o the pictures when the mouse hovers on top, are the shapes also customizable?

Thanks for your help!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. The yellow backgrounds on the pictures are customisable in the theme options, yes.

2. Vimeo & Youtube only at the moment, we’ve found in the past that bandwidth and upload limitations on most servers running WordPRess have caused more problems then good with self hosted video.

3. You’d need to customise the theme code to change that, but with customisation, of course, you can do anything really, but you’ll need to find a developer to help with that.

Cheers! :)

hi, can you look at this theme and advise me on the obvious problem?

http://demonpigstudios.com/
tommusrhodus

Yeah, you’ve not set your menu into the “Standard” location in “appearance” -> “menus”, the demo data cannot do this for you.

hello very nice but can I place some text info to portfolios ? I mean on fronmtpage I can click on photos and new page open where I can have more photos but what about some text ?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Text can be seen on the right on portfolio posts, the theme is designed for portfolio posts to be more minimal than other themes, but we felt that’s just want suited WiderGrid

Hey, I have TheGrid and love it.

Pre-sales question on this one:

What happens if you need more than four menu items? What does that do to the layout?

Thanks, AD

tommusrhodus

Hey there :)

If you need a larger menu it’s either a good idea to make use of the drop downs, or to not use the header text description so that you have the extra room for your menu.

Cheers

Default-user

Thank you, sir! One last question: Is it possible to add a category filter for the blog like the one on the homage?

tommusrhodus

Category filters for blog feeds tend not to be as successful as users can sometimes have huge lists of categories which can cause an issue, also the load more functionality may be a little stretched if there’s loads of blog posts involved. Better would be to just link to your important categories directly in the menu, perhaps in a drop down under a main “blog” link :)

Cheers!

Default-user

Fair enough, thanks!

Love your theme, a pre-sale question: Your response to two previous questions about the yellow background, 1) “Yep, there’s a few colour controls in the theme options.” 2) “included colour pickers,” – which colours are included to “pick?”

What colour options are available, or can we just enter the html code for the color needed?

Thx.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can use some custom CSS for colours if you need, otherwise the included colours pickers are as follows:

Cheers!

Default-user

WOW – fast response! Another reason to purchase your theme! I am only interested in changing the header color and highlight color from yellow to “other color.” What other colors are available from the “Select Color” picker without adding any CSS?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can choose literally any colour you want for those 2 colours :) the colour options give you full control for the colour, not just a few predefined options :)

Cheers!

Another pre-sale question: Instead of a background color, such as your demo dark color, can a background (such as a brick/concrete wallpaper) be uploaded and installed instead?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Indeed you can :)

Please help. Theme is uploaded and activated. Said it requires the plugin ebor-cpt-master.zip from Git. I installed that plugin but it does not work it says the header is missing.

Please advise. Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Hmm, that’s strange! Try deleting all of the required plugins and then allow the theme to reinstall them, but have it reinstall them one at a time.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers!

This theme does not seem to work correctly unless I am doing something wrong. I added a portfolio item, it is a video then added a featured image. On the homepage which is set to be my portfolio, The only thing that shows is a very small box with a cut off title. Please take a look and let me know what is going on. Thanks! http://eric1.pureperfectionwebdesign.com/

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Are you sure that your uploaded featured image matches or exceeds the dimensions set in the featured image options? This is so the theme can handle the resize properly for you.

Cheers!

That is not the problem. I have tried various image sizes and nothing works. Please help!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Please keep comments within the same thread, it makes it easier for us to keep track and provide you with help (which I’m trying to do :) )

I think it would be best if you could leave us a ticket at my support site, make it private and provide your site URL and WP Login and we’ll take a look for you, the answer is likely very simple :)

http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com

Feel free to add the image you’re trying to set as the featured image as an attachment with the ticket, that will also help us get to the root of the issue with you.

Cheers

Default-user

Sorry about that. I have just sent you a ticket to you from the link you provided. Thanks!

tommusrhodus

:) Seen and answered.

Hi, i’m interested in this theme. Has this an option to put a search box in the header? Thanks!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No, you’d have to modify the theme for this.

Hey dude,

After some thought this is the theme I wish to buy, any updates for Wordpress 3.9 and is mobile compatibility still good?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

The theme is already compatible with mobiles and the latest version of WordPress, no updated needed, just like theArchitect :)

Cheers!
