Hi there, am considering purchasing the theme but would like to know if you do take on customisation request? Do not mind paying you for additional work involved.
Unfortunately, I don’t do any customizations. You could try a service like Envato Studio for customizations.
Let me know if you have any other questions,
Thank you for the response, I have purchased the theme anyway to give it a try. Is there a way I can enable the admin tool bar when viewing the site? It seems to be hidden specifically for this theme.
Thanks for purchasing my theme! I really appreciate it!
Yep, it’s disabled by default due to some issues with it messing with the homepage layout. You can re-enable it if you want by following the instructions here:

I want to buy this theme but I first want to find out if it is possible to add widgets e.g. “user login” “cart checkout” under the menu bar on the left.
Thanks so much for your interest! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
There’s a widget area below the navigation that you can place any widgets you like. However, there’s no cart checkout widget with the theme, so that would need to be added via a plugin.
Thank you for your quick response. I am aware that there is no cart widget. I have a plugin for that. I just want to find out something else. If I click on an image it expands with a little description. Under the description there is a “read more” button. I assume it will be possible to add multiple buttons. Instead of “read more” to have say 3 buttons “English” “German” “Italian” or to have “Watch online” and “add to cart” buttons
Sure – you can add as many buttons as you like with the buttons shortcode. That’s just a content area, so really you can add anything you like.
Is this theme Wordpress 4.0 compatible? I see it hasn’t been updated since 2013. I’ve had this theme running on a client’s site for several years now and I want to update to avoid security problems.
Yep! It’s 4.0 compatible. Be sure you’re running the latest version of the theme (1.54) to ensure compatibility.

Hi, I am interested to buy this theme.
I have a few questions:
1. Can I have multiple pages similar to the main page? As I would like to divide my work to a few categories.
2. What is the maximum project you would recommend on one page for a good loading time?
3. What is the maximum no of image for each project recommended?
4. Can I have 620×620 size images ?
1. Bookcase automatically creates category pages for you. You can see an example here of only illustration posts: http://designcirc.us/bookcase/skills/illustration/
2. It really depends on the number of images on each project as well since those are also loaded concurrently. It also depends a lot on the speed of your server host too. It might be one of those things you would just want to play around with some loading simulators, but really I would say no more than 10 or 20 before you should start paginating.
3. The current max is set a 6 slides per project, however, you can increase that if you like.
4. Sure, however, the images will automatically scale to 500×500 to fit in the layout.
Thank you for your prompt reply. Merry Christmas!
My pleasure! Merry Christmas to you as well!
Hi. I had a question before purchasing this theme. I was wondering if I could change the Titles of each page in the menu and on their individual pages? I am a calligrapher and was hoping to upload my files as the headers viewers will click on to view that page and then see my calligraphy as the title of the page. Thank you.
Yes, of course! WordPress allows you to title each page whatever you want. Additionally, you can change the title of each menu item in your menu when you create it.
Sorry andre – I meant making the tabs as images, uploading my calligraphy in a format for the titles in the menu navigation and on each page as the main title. Is that possible?
Do you mean using your calligraphy images for your navigation items? That’s not possible out of the box. You could accomplish this by using a plugin like this:
However, it’s likely you’ll need to add some additional css since the theme wasn’t set up to do this out of the box.
Hello, I bought the site from August 2013 and let me know if you already have a “responsive version”?
There’s no responsive version of Bookcase available. I’m not sure if this feature will be in a future update or not. You’d need to make some customizations to the theme to achieve this. This type of alteration would go beyond the scope of support for the theme. Complex modifications like this will require you to implement the changes yourself or hire a 3rd party programmer to assist you.
Is it possible to choose to open a portfolio on home page when you access on the url ?
Doesn’t matter which one, it would be great to have one open…
thanks for your help
Sure, you can do that by following the instructions I posted on the support forum here:
Hi there, am using this theme since few years ago, but the contact form does not work. What I have to do?
I’m not sure what could be going on. Can you confirm your theme is up to date?
Also, did you know we have a dedicated support system? We answer all questions there first, so it’s the fastest way to get support. If you need additional assistance, feel free to start a new topic over there and I’d be happy to help! Thanks!
Is it possible to have the Vimeo or YouTube video that displays in the lightbox larger? It’s very small.
And setting the default width/height to whatever you like.
1. How do I increase the portfolio thumbnail size
2. Also how do i link when you click the portfolio is links to a blog post?
Thanks for your time
I increased the height but now the portfolio below it overlaps.. thoughts?
Responded to your questions on support. Thanks!
how do i change when you click on a portfolio it goes directly to another url link like a blog ( no shadow box, no title, no info just the url)
Any chance to become friendly mobil in google search ? Could you adapt the template for it ? Google said (no mobil friendly wordpress theme)
Of course i use the last version of bookcase..
Unforunately, there are no current plans to make Bookcase responsive. You’d need to make some significant modifications to the theme to achieve this. Customizations fall outside the scope of support for the theme so you’d need to seek the help of a developer for something like this.
HI, What is the style of dynamic loading and content moving that is so cool? Is there a term for it? Like a form of Isotope gallery or something?
Hi, where can i download this version: Update Version 1.56 December 11th, 2015 – i bought this today – and can only download 1.54?
Just sent you an email!
Please help I am unable to download the latest updated version, I want to update the theme as I am still stuck with Version: 1.54. When I download this theme from download section I always get this Version: 1.54
I’m not sure what’s going on. Let me contact Envato and see why the latest version isn’t in the download.
In the meantime, can you shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org? I should be able to send you the updated version temporarily until this is resolved.
My setup is as follows
On the Homepage I have only 9 portfolios displayed. Each one is basically the title of a video series. I eliminated the rest of the portfolios as follows on the template-home.php.
‘terms’ => array(‘hfs’,’hts’,’kps’,’ltk’,’sls’,’tbs’,’tms’,’tts’), // use slug of skill you’re excluding
I have a button with the link to the skills page on each of those 9 portfolios. http://website.com/skills/tbs/
The problem I am encountering now encountering is one of the video series has 55 sessions and the skill page only displays 30 of them. I went ahead and changed the $projectposts = 30 to 60 on the template-home.php but i am thinking this only applies to the homepage. I cant find somewhere else where I can change this.
Thank you in advance.
Unfortunately, customizations are not covered under the scope of the support policy, so you’ll need to seek the help of a developer for assistance with this. However, it sounds like you may want to adjust the posts per page in the taxonomy-skills.php file.
