Comprei o theme e não consigo colocar meu portfolio com 4 colunas e filtro. Poderia me ajudar?


English please.


I have an error in the Theme setitng panel in the admin on the Cesar theme.

Here is the error message I receive – can you diagnose the problem from this?

Fatal error: Cannot use object of type stdClass as array in /home/derekhal/public_html/natashajaynephotography.com/wp-content/themes/cesar/functions.php on line 987

The second tab ‘Skins Manager’ shows this error, and all tabs below this are blank, and show no content.

Best wishes



Could you send your Wordpress account and FTP detail please. I will have a look.

Hello – sorry for my late reply – is there a way I can send these details to you privately please?


Send it using my profile form mail please http://themeforest.net/user/ThemeGoods

I can’t for the life of me get the videos to play in a portfolio page. The page is just blank. Ideas?

Test blog portfolio is – http://familytest.learninghood.ca/portfolio – WP Multi-Site install running 3.9.2

Could you send your Wordpress account and FTP detail please. I will have a look.

I just emailed you the details but I might actually have just solved it, too. Not sure.

Hello, very good template, but do not receive the email contact form. How I can fix this?

Could you contact your webhost and ask theme if there is any setting required in order to use PHP mail function.

Can be used with PHPmailer?

Hi Can you help with these two issues with the template:

1) When a single blog post/page is shown there are no navigation buttons at the bottom to allow the user to go either forward to the next post or back to an older entry. How would I get this to show up?

2) On the gallery grid page, I have 4 categories/boxes and sometimes the 4th box (second row) overlaps the 1st box (1st row). It will show correctly only after I refresh the page. This seems to happen only in Firefox browser. How can I fix that?



1. Currently It doesn’t support that. I will consider to add it into the future if there are many requests from customers.

2. Provide URL of page which has issue please.

Ok- do you know of a plugin for that functionality? It would make the user experience much easier to navigate the blog. I will message you for the second issue.

I am also getting the black background on Portfolio Sets – a fix would be appreciated.

Hi, there – I emailed them to you yesterday regarding the self-hosted video issue.

The Portfolio Set Field doesn’t actually work – item will not add to the field – https://www.dropbox.com/s/9xolnu1u0zm9co4/Post-Field.png

Just noticed that Portfolio items don’t show up at all on the outside unless attached to a page. Is that normal? Seems broken when conducting a search as the page comes up blank – http://ourfamilyrocks.learninghood.ca/portfolios/the-tree-tops-meet-the-ants/ – that is a video item – not appearing.


Did you add content to portfolio? If you want to use single portfolio page. You have to add its content in edit portfolio page.

Yes. Items added to Portolfio as you can see here – http://ourfamilyrocks.learninghood.ca/our-family-album/. BUT when I click ‘View’ beside the item internally (https://www.dropbox.com/s/8wv0ih2jixn7u5e/Treetops-Cesar.png) I get a blank page – http://ourfamilyrocks.learninghood.ca/portfolios/the-tree-tops-meet-the-ants/. Something is clearly not working properly, yes?

Is it possible to ‘hide’ certain portfolio items / sets from the portfolio page? For example, I don’t want ‘Concerts’ to appear on this Portfolio page as I will display the Portfolio Set page for this. Any way to limit what appears on the portfolio and, likewise, the gallery of galleries page? Here is a screenshot demonstrating the concept. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0im3tenrjjbfd4h/Limit-Portfolio-Items.png

Sorry, it needs a custom modification. This type of customization is a bit more complex and is not covered under normal theme support.

If you’re interested in hiring a developer for building out this custom page template for you, we highly recommend to check out: Elto

But I will add it into the future if there are many requests from customers


I bought your theme a few days ago and would like to ask you if it’s possible to put the logo also on the widget on the footer, as on your theme.

Thanks for this amazing theme!




Thank you for purchasing.

Yes you can add textwidget to “Footer Sidebar” and add HTML img tag to insert logo image. Here is sample code of img tag http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_img.asp

How can we remove the white box that appears on image rollover? I found where to remove title and description but the white box stays.

I must say that for a $50 theme I’m not too impressed with the support. I can’t honestly spend much more time trying to make this theme operate the way it should. It is beautiful in conception but incomplete in UI and design – I have been designing websites for 10 years and have never been so frustrated with a theme. So much does not operate as it should. For example, you can’t actually add “Portfolios” – the ’s’ indicating plural (more than one). There is only 1 allowable portfolio. What you are doing is adding items to that 1 portfolio. Even so, you should be able to limit what appears and what doesn’t. Something that simple is available in many free themes. If I can’t get support (which is much quicker elsewhere) then I am going to have to ask for a refund and purchase from somewhere else. The layer slider is also ridiculously complex. I’m using an Elegant Themes theme where items are added to a slider simply by adding to a ‘Featured’ category. Complexity is not always an attribute.

Hi, I have a problem with the order of the images on my homepage. In the section Gallery—> Home I can’t Drag&Drop the images to move them in the right order. I’ve installed the plugin Post Types Order, but I can’t move the order of my images yet.

Thanks S.

Please check. There are javascript conflicts between theme’s script and plugin’s script. Try to disable all plugins

Any answer to the black background problem on portfolio sets? http://ourfamilyrocks.learninghood.ca/portfoliosets/pink/ I have added a new image to the admin but it isn’t changing. Many with this problem on the comments – please offer a fix.

Could you send your Wordpress account and FTP detail please. I will have a look.

I just sent by email from your portfolio page – thanks


Just wondering before I purchase this theme in the portfolio section when opening the individual thumbnails am i able to put the gallery image flow as the setting so they can view the images?


Thank you for interesting.

Currently It doesn’t support that. I will consider to add it into the future if there are many requests from customers.

Hi again

Sorry just a couple more questions, Do you need a gallery to have a portfolio? Is there a way to preview verticals and horizontal photos in the portfolio section, in a slide show kind of way? Is it possible to add more than one image in a blog post?

Thank you so much.


1. Basically gallery with portfolio is optional. You can always add images to portfolio using HTML.

2. Yes you can also add images to blog post using HTML too.

is that for the wordpress one too?

Yes it’s Wordpress theme.


i have an issue on my startpage. On the first loading the Gallery Images are overlapping in Chrome and Firefox.

See file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/61410262/s-trommer_de.pdf



Provide URL of page which has issue please.


There are javascript conflicts between theme’s script and plugin’s script. Try to disable all plugins.

Also did you edit theme code?


Purchased this. Contact form doesn’t work.

I can confirm that hosting co. can send email using mail() function (I have another WordPress blog installed with Contact Form plugin, on the same server).

Emailed you the link via private message.


Thank you for purchasing.

I will reply your email.

Hello. Roll on the blog is hidden, you can ask for a repair that? The disadvantage can be seen in the picture:

2) http://images69.fotosik.pl/125/c86ca06b0165dff5.jpg

I’ve already submitted a ticket. Twice. No one replied. I’m having the same black backgrounds issue on the Cesar theme that many have had, in spite of setting the background image in the gallery/portolio background image under themes settings…

The black background appears on both portfolio sets (even yours that I imported in), if you view the set directly, and also on pages with a featured image set.

PLEASE HELP ASAP! And if you reply with “please email me your FTP info” like you have to everyone else, please let me know what your actual email address is.

Thank you.


So your issue is portfolio set background image? If so. Please update to the latest version of theme. It should fix your issue.

Download from Themeforest > your account > downloads and replace all theme’s files and folders using FTP account with the new version.

I am using the newest theme. I just bought it 2 weeks ago. It says it’s up to date.

Regardless, I made the changes in the PHP files on my own so now it’s no longer black.

Thanks, Amy


No, it’s not the latest version. The latest version is released 7 days ago. You can see changelog here http://themeforest.net/item/cesar-responsive-portfolio-photography-theme/5362099

Is there a way to create a page with a ”3 columns filterable” portfolio set template that shows only specific portfolios, rather than ALL of them?

Alternately, can I add a menu to a specific page instead? I don’t want all of my portfolios to be in drop-downs…

Many thanks.

Did you mean you want to add filterable option to certain sets only?

Yep! Thanks…

Also, can you order those at all? It’s not even alphabetical. Appears to be by date maybe? I can just go in and change all the dates at the end, in the correct order, if that’s how it’s doing it. Please let me know. Thanks.
