what is the current version?

The package contains two versions. You can install either older v2.6 (not recommended anymore but it has been tested by many people) or current v2.7 which only has a week (it should be fine as well).

There’s also v2.8 coming as soon as it’s ready which switches custom fields to Advanced Custom Fields plugin among other improvements.

Hi…have purchased this theme from youll but have been facing an issue. site url: https://arjunmark.com whenever i scroll down and click on any item (portfolio) the popup opens on the top, so in this the person has to again scroll down and start from where he/she was viewing from. Any solution for this? to keep the pop up open from where its clicked.


Sorry ! didnt understand which code where?

Ok ! understood … thanks …but the scroll seems to be scrolling up can v do something for that ?

When you open any page, post or project it will be scrolled to the top. You can change that but that’s beyond the scope of our support because that’s an unusual behavior that no one else wants.

I described how to do the other change because that one was a valid concern.

The site works fine, but trying to update the welcome text gives me an error:

“Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in …. wp-content/themes/daisho/admin/metaboxes.php on line 88”

Any idea?

Which version are you using? The current v2.7 (June 26, 2017) and the previous v2.6 don’t use custom fields to store the welcome text — it can be added as a part of the content http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#homepage (it’s a part of the content to avoid having more custom fields and database requests for such small elements).

In the upcoming update metaboxes.php will be removed and replaced with Advanced Custom Fields plugin so whatever errors that file may be containing it’s not worth fixing them anymore as the update is coming soon (possibly this week).

Just updated to 2.7. Upon further testing: Any change on the homepage generates the error. I can edit other pages (eg contact) just fine. Just posted a new blog and portfolio entry.

You can send us your URL, WordPress login and password using https://themeforest.net/item/daisho-flexible-wordpress-portfolio-theme/2585124/support and we can have a look if you want.

We use WordPress 4.8, Daisho 2.7 and PHP 7.1.6 on the demo website and we are currently unable to reproduce that error.

Where can I view changelog for this theme? I have been using it since 2012 and it’s still looks fresh, but want to know what have been changed/improved before upgrading. Thanks

Please have a look at https://docs.ikonize.com/daisho/changelog.html

v3.1 is planned to follow in the near future (this or next month) as well and the documentation is being updated (we decided to remove old 1.x and 2.x FAQ entries and the new updated ones will be available in the documentation).

After update 3.0 the handling of portfolio post types and portfolio categories on the Portfolio thumbnail grid doesn’t work anymore. I have followed the instructions at the new changelog.

You can email us your WordPress login and password using the support tab and we’ll have a look.

v3.0 requires at least PHP 5.6 to work and the newest WordPress. This may be the problem. If you’re using PHP 5.4 then it’s already outdated: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHP#Release_history

Thanks for quick answer. The site olechansen.dk use PHP 7.1 and WP 4.8 so that doesn’t seem to be the problem. It’s hosted at one.com. I’ll send you the passwords to the support and hope a solution is possible. (Since I bought the theme in 2015 I haven’t experienced any problems and I have been very satisfied with the exeptional way of handling filters, categories and portfolio items – until now?).

What has changed is the code is now newer and up-to-date. All the previous options still remain (but now you have more of them, e.g. you can specify any arbitrary project labels unlike before).

The custom fields are now handled by Advanced Custom Fields plugin and you can import them in Daisho > Demo after activating that plugin. Maybe that’s the issue that they aren’t imported yet.

Since that plugin offers better fields and more of them (and they are even editable by you in the admin panel) we’re planning to keep using that plugin from now on.

Is there an easy way to upgrade to ver3.0? I’m currently running 2.1

Updating to any up-to-date PHP version (starting with PHP 5.6) should help: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHP#Release_history

Updating the PHP worked but now that the site is updated I’ve lost the portfolio slider on my front page! How do I get it back?

Never mind fixed it. Think I have it under control. Thanks.

Having a major problem with updated theme. When I update theme in Dashboard it reflects the changes I have made. However when I look at live site the changes are not reflected. I have refreshed, emptied caches, installed new browsers, etc. I even contacted the hosting company and they have all cleared all caches on their end. Any idea what could be causing this?

We would still suspect some kind of cache.

Here’s what may be caching your website:
  • WordPress plugins
  • Your server
  • MySQL
  • CloudFlare DNS (if applicable)
  • CDN (if applicable)
  • Any other services that you may be using

It may be some other configuration issue as well. The theme is a presentation layer and will display whatever is in the database. The database is specified by wp-config.php and it’s the same for back-end and front-end.

You can switch to the default WordPress theme and check what happens. Then you can deactivate all plugins.

If by “When I update theme in Dashboard it reflects the changes I have made” you mean Appearance > Editor then you may be modifying the wrong theme.

It was in fact a caching issue. After many hours I discovered that a caching plugin I used had created pages (3 subfolders deep) like “about.html” which caused the interface to create page titles like “about-2.html”. After I (manually) deleted these files it worked fine. Thanks for your help!

Is there no way to edit the layout of the individual portfolio item pages? Seems like you could in the earlier versions. i want to remove or change the social media icons.

The project pages display the title and your content (just like page.php or single.php) and you could create many sophisticated layouts there with plugins like included Visual Composer.

The project pages also display project labels and social media icons. The social media icons are located in single-portfolio.php and can be edited in that place.

Another file that updates these icons is /js/portfolio.js and it does so when you enter projects from portfolio pages without page reload.


I’ve problem with VisualComposer, I can not add items to new pages or edit pages that have already been created with VisualComposer.


Ok thanks, now its works!

how can i hide the title of the page? Now on the homepage I see the title “home”

If you import the demo content the title of the homepage should be hidden. It’s hidden in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS but if it’s not then you can copy a line of code that hides it here: https://docs.ikonize.com/daisho/#homepage

We decided that hiding the page’s title is not worth a database call and a custom field if it can be hidden using the WordPress’s native field made for such purposes.

Such option may appear in the future though, as an optional plugin that would contain some styling options (adding custom CSS is the best you can do and it’s a plugin for those who can sacrifice performance).

I am just trying to change the fonts. No easy select option with google fonts????? Very frustrating….

We’re sorry to hear that an option that you expected to find is missing.

There have been a few major updates to the theme recently and more are coming.

This option will likely never be a part of this theme but we will instead move all non-essential functionality (current /inc/customize.php and other related files) to a separate customization plugin (probably very soon, in v3.2). After this change there are likely going to appear more customization options gradually with every update, including fonts selector.

Users are primarily encouraged to use child themes to do any modifications if they can. This way they won’t be sacrificing performance for additional database calls and that’s the simplest/cleanest way of modifying anything.

Others can install the upcoming optional customization plugin. It will be available in Appearance > Install plugins.

I understand, don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely theme but some of the usual options Im used to are not available.

Besides that my other question is if we have the ability to use Font Awesome instead of Pictogram?

Such option isn’t available in v3.1, however, that’s a very easy change and we made it now.

You can go to https://demo.ikonize.com/daisho/wp-content/themes/daisho/css/fonts.css and either download this file (it’s minified though) or just download the last lines that start with .menu-item[class*="fa-"] and you can use all Font Awesome CSS classes in Appearance > Menus from now on. E.g. fa-tint would be a valid CSS class name that you can add to any top-level menu item.

This feature is going to be added to v3.2 as well.

Pre-sale question. Is it possible to have blog with 3 post bellow portfolio on homepage? regards

You could create a static page where you could paste the two shortcodes for displaying the grid and 4 recent blog posts: https://docs.ikonize.com/daisho/#recentPortfolioProjects

The theme is based on the default framework http://underscores.me/. The normal blog is located in index.php and in archive.php. You can’t include it on a static page just by using the admin panel but you could modify the files slightly to achieve that.


I have a pre-sales question: What exactly does “compatible” with Facebook mean? I even couldn’t find any features listed under “Item Details”?

And is it possible to maintain a specific aspect ratio of the images shown in the grid? As not all the images would have the same dimensions I would suggest an auto-resize of the image to fit the div container with the desired specific aspect ratio.

Is this possible to do with your theme?

Many thanks, Osewa

It means that an item can have any feature that uses Facebook. This item has sharing icons that include a Facebook icon.

The grid tiles can have one of the dimensions seen on the demo website. If you upload an image that doesn’t fit well then it will be cropped and centered.

The library we use is https://isotope.metafizzy.co/. Doing any potential adjustments to the grid should be very easy for a developer of any skill level.

Many thanks for the extensive answer! Very much appreciated :-)
