Now this is CLEAAAAN ! Great template
Nice file Kriesi
You guys must of not watched the videos.
Those admin options are simply amaaazing! Great job!
Very nice job, K.
So I guess Cu3er is back. The features shown in the videos are just amazing. Bookmarked.
Keep it up namesake.
nice backend one question, can the cub3r logo be removed?
Great work Kriesi, wish you a lot of sales.
Ahhh gonna buy it, wanna dive into the code and learn something new maybe
And got it
Thanks a lot! Happy diving
Freakin amazing just raised the bar way high! good work!
You’ve outdone yourself this time dude! Would love to have the tablet slider, but as jquery instead of flash. Any way for that? Way to go, man! Great, great work!!
currently not, sorry. If the request keeps poping up I might consider a 2d version but the angle would probably be not the same as in the 3d version.
Impressive and way too tempting. You gotta stop this already!
does this theme fully work as a parent theme so any customizations can be made using a child theme.
is it possible to show the featured image of e.g. the latest 5 regular blog posts in the slider?
yes that should work fine. I have not included a parent/child theme since most people do not seem to like that approach but if you know how to setup a child theme the theme should work fine.
Slideshows are bound to each post, therefore its unfortunatley not possible to create a slider of the latest posts. you can however create a “master page” set it as frontpag and set a link from each individual slide to the target post.
I still don’t understand why it is so difficult to have the latest e.g. 5 posts on the front page in the slider instead of just some portfolio item – I think in the back-end it’s just a different query, isn’t it – e.g. the nvision theme does a nice job in this regard – it just offers a drop-down with latest posts, random posts, portfolio items etc. – you may want to have a look at this.
all my posts have a featured image (post thumbnail) – when showing the latest posts on the home page using the avia_newsbox, I’m not getting the image – just an empty span tag – are you expecting the user to add all featured images again using featured media section – I can’t imagine that this is the case.
Last but not least, there’s a typo in the admin sidebar section – as to my knowledge, it should say: Select a PAGE that should receive a new widget area:
receive and not recieve
First of all thanks for the typo notice
1.) Unfortunatley due to the flexibility the theme adds with an unlimited number of featured images per post I wasnt able to use the default images used by wordpress.
I will look into the issue and see if i can create a fallback szenario but I am not sure if that can be done easily. I wasnt to concerend about this since users usually buy themes and create new sites with them but I totaly see your point here.
2.) The way the slider works is a desicion I made when building the theme. If you think about it you will notice that adding a slideshow that operates on various posts would really complicate the themes usage.
Currently you just add images to the post, set the transitions and captions and you are done. a slider that operates on many posts would need to be managed from outside the post or page.
You would need an extra admin panel to set which slideshow to use and which transitions you want to display, which images from which post should be used, how many images from how many posts… etc.
If the theme would only be able to handle one preview image per post this would be acceptable but due to the multi-image approach I think it would only compicate things. I hope you do understand my reason to not include these options.
I kind of understand your point – however, as I have hundreds of posts that more or less all have a featured image (post thumbnail) attached, I don’t see any reason why I basically would have to add the same image again using your backend – this would be just too much work for me or do I miss a point here.
No you dont. I agree with you, thats why I have coded a comaptibility function for you
add this code: http://pastie.org/1820444 to your functions.php file at the very top, before the framework is loaded but of course after the first php tag.
The function is a small hack of one of the framework functions and will check if there is a post thumbnail if none of the theme specific feature images are set.
However one problem might still occur: since wordpress creates the thumbnails once the image is uploaded you probably end up with the wrong image sizes and they will display distorted. You can circumvent this with this plugin:
It will create the necessary thumbnail sizes for whichever theme is currently active. so just active brightbox, then let the plugin run over your image gallery once, and it will create the necessary versions of your images
I put your code right before this line require_once( ‘framework/avia_framework.php’ ); in functions.php – still no image? What am I missing?
did you use the image regeneration plugin as well?
no, I didn’t but the span tag that should hold the image is still empty – I guess I should at least get an url to the image?
re-generated all thumbnails – still no images
any progress yet to show the default featured images?
can the cu3b3r be removed?
If you want to remove the Cu3er logo you must get a licence here: https://getcu3er.com/signup
The version which is used by Brightbox is the commercial pro version but doesn’t allow to remove the logo. You can buy the slider for $49 though – then replace the slider swf file (themes folder) with the one you get from getcu3er.com
Wow, this is a nice one! But before I buy, I have a few questions:
1). Can the Cu3er logo be removed? It might be a little confusing for my visitors, they don’t know what that is.
2). The border of the submenu and megamenu is so hard and fat, is there any change that it can be made a little more subtile? Maybe a little bit thinner and with little rounded edges just like the buttons of the main navigation have? I think it now is a little bit to hard and easy, compared to the rest of the theme which is beautiful. (For example, I like the menu of Dice, and Itworks II has a real soft one).
3). When you go to a page like http://www.kriesi.at/themes/brightbox/using-the-slideshow/ then none of the main navigation is ‘on’. But the whole main navigation looks a little bit unfinished then. Also, the current page in the submenu is not highlighted. I was wondering if that is easy possible? Or maybe an option for breadcrumbs would help to not loose the place you are at the moment? (although the title of the page is visible, however sometimes below an image).
4). Would it be an option to lower the top background until a little bit beneath the main navigation? Then the main navigation becomes more separated (also like the Dice theme) from the rest of the page.
Excuse me for all my questions, but I really would like to use this one.
1.) zweistein covered that, guess you already noticed
2+3+4) can all be done via css only. if you know at least the basics my support team will be able to guide you through the changes that you cant do yourself, although its not that hard.
The easiest way to create the menu to your likings would be to just increase the size of the blue strip at the top and then position the menu itself absolute and move it upwards. that way you wouldnt need to touch the html/php code at all
A breadcrumb nav is currently not available, for the time beeing you would need to use an ecternal plugin
Love the theme, specially the dynamic template builder, GREAT WORK !
Awesome Theme! Congrats!
Indeed the backend features are amazing. Still nr 1
Looking good how about localization/translation?
The theme is translation ready, all html output of tempalte files is wrapped in gettext functions to work with plugins like wpml or simply a different po/mo file
- need localization, is the theme .po ready?
- would like to have google fonts implemented instead of cufon, possible?
- child theme possible?
all output is wrapped in gettext functions for easier localization, yes.
you can simply choose not to use any of the fonts specified by me and just include the google font in your header.php file instead
