IKONIZE supports this item

I have a question. In the portfolio page i didn’t see any commenting? Does is support comments in portfolia items ?

It doesn’t but it can support them if you enable page refreshes for entire portfolio. I can help you with that on the support forum.

Daisho is using Modern Pictograms as menu icons from fontsquirrel.com, and id like to change this font for another from that site, i downloaded it, copy folder with font to /themes/daisho/modules/fonts/fonts and now what? :)

That’s correct. Steps:

  1. Download new @font-face kit.
  2. Load it in your child theme anyhow, anywhere (CSS is usually delivered in the package with font files). File /modules/fonts/fonts.css can be used as an example on how to load that.
  3. And lastly, menu icons are added with CSS’s pseudo-element :before and they are styled in style.css in section “4.4 – Navigation”. There’s not much code to be modified but each icons set requires individual, custom code so I can’t give you one answer. Basically, if a menu item has a class that looks like modernpicrograms-icon-1234 then an icon will be loaded (list of icons is in fonts.css). You would have to create such classes for the other set. Like: some-set-icon-1234 and then adjust that in main style.css. Contacting freelance developers that would do that for you in a child theme is advisable here. It’s an easy, 1 – 2 hours task.

Hi, Does Daisho gets plugins of Co-regeistration, Autoresponder and facebook?

WPMU doesn’t allow plugins installation for subwebsites for security reasons.

Hi, Is it possible to keep the menu of the portfolio on the internal pages? (for the user Orientation)

You can have “Portfolio” as the menu item. You can add it in [Appearance > Menus].

If you mean if it’s possible to have categories filter on all pages, below the header, then the answer would be no. You’ll need a page reload to load portfolio’s URL, title and other custom settings (such as background image).


Is there a way to make the blog look like the portfolio grid? I am actually making a training website and I love the look and design of your theme and unfortunately the plugin that I use doesn’t lock the portfolio pages, just regular pages and blog posts. So do you know a way I can make the blog look like the portfolio or a plugin I can use that will allow paid subscriptions for things that are listed as portfolio items?

You can link thumbnails to external URLs like blog posts. It’s also relatively easy to adjust project-loop.php to list posts rather than portfolio projects if you need an automated way to do that.

Such modification would take around an hour for an average developer.

Since this is a useful modification I can write a tutorial on the forum if you create a ticket with such question but to follow it you’ll need to know PHP/HTML basics. It will look like this: http://support.forcg.com/topic/portfolio-project-container-how-to-add-attributes

Is it possible to make the All Works disappear to the user? Also where can I change it?

Sorry. I found it. I am doing a trial and I completely forgot the fact that I can not change the source.

That’s correct. WPMU doesn’t allow edits to the installed themes and plugins and it also doesn’t allow unfiltered_html for administrators so your other HTML (like iframes) may be stripped.

As for the “All Works” removal please see ‘Portfolio Filter – remove “All Works”’ – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes – if something looks like a general custom modification that is likely to be helpful to others then I’ll be happy to describe it on the forum and add it to the FAQ.

Hello from France ! My trial.devatic account (name stephane) don’t work anymore akter one day ? I need it to show my boss that theis theme is the good choice ! Is it normal ?

Thanks ! And another thing : is it posible to link a sub-menu to a porfolio categorie ? I mean the dynamic porfolio categories… Your theme is very good I enjoy it !

In fact, what’s the link to a porfolio category ? Is it easy ? Thanks

Portfolio archives are disabled but yes – it’s easy to enable them. Archives will look like this: http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/photography/ and not like portfolio pages.

There’s also a modification described in the FAQ that allows you to make categories have links – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Submenus for portfolio categories are not possible at this moment. I would recommend creating multiple portfolio pages to have many categories and many works on your website.

Hi, I am still considering buying your template, but I would be using your theme in an unconventional manner. Does your theme support having a sortable portfolio in such a way that it can have layers?

In a way the categories would change as you dig through the portfolio but would keep the same fluidity as changing categories. It seems I can get a similar functionality by making multiple portfolios that link to each other, but it does not quite have the fluidity as the rest of the demo site.



You can achieve various effects with modifications to the code but by default the main package contains only mechanisms that you see on the trial website.

The trial website is a WordPress 3.6 + Daisho 1.9.5 in 1:1 form. The modification that you describe would rather require some developer to add some custom code there. You can also use “External Link” and link thumbnails to sub-portfolio pages.

Another question : multi-languages is it available ? I am an editorial communication professionnal, not developper. Good template for editorial, thanks.

Yes, the theme is 100% translatable. POT file with all the strings is included in /languages/ folder. You can use a plugin like WPML to translate posts, pages and have a language switcher.

Hello, and thank you for this lovely theme, i have one question about the product page, 1- how i can move the title from top-left to bottom left and move the category title from bottom left to top-right? 2- and for the opacity on mouse hover on products can i make the color block 80% opacity instead of 100% , i want to keep showing a but the picture under it.

thank you sir.

Hello! Are you sure that it’s about Daisho? I can help you with that but it would be great if you could attach some quick sketch of mockup of what should go where – that would allow me to clearly understand that. At this moment I’m not certain which elements do you refer to. Thanks :)

May I set up the counts of thumbs in landing page? For example: 20 thumbs just be showed.

My web is: http://368.cgds.com.tw

Sure, by default all are shown and you can limit that in project-loop.php there where it says $posts_per_page = -1;. You can set this to 20. It will limit all portfolio pages.

You can also pick only certain categories to be displayed for each portfolio page in [Pages > (a portfolio page) > Exclude Categories].

Thanks, Can you guide for me to modify it ? My program engineer was sick for several days…..

$args = array( ‘post_type’ => array(‘portfolio’), ‘orderby’ => $orderby, ‘order’ => $order, ‘paged’ => $paged, ‘posts_per_page’ => $post_per_page, ‘ignore_sticky_posts’ => $do_not_show_stickies );

I finished it, thanks

Why my website can’t be showed in IE10 & IE9? Before two weeks, it works fine…


IE is OK

what if i use the grid as homepage and i have 30-40 projects? can i customize to show only the last 10 recent projects and than a link: show all work?

does the theme support WPML-plugin?

You can create one portfolio page (like “Homepage” page) that shows only certain categories and that is set to be your front page in [Settings > Reading > Static Front Page] and you can create another that will list remaining 30 projects.

You can test that on the trial website.

There is no way to limit these pages to certain number of posts with “show all works” link. I’m working on pagination and infinite scrolling for portfolio but when pagination or infinite scroll are enabled, thumbnails won’t be able to dynamically open projects and filter will have to be disabled like seen here: http://isotope.metafizzy.co/demos/infinite-scroll.html

Yes, the theme is 100% translatable and compatible with WPML.

i try on http://trial.devatic.com/fuchsdesign/ very good stuff your trail-area!

1. is it possibile to add text under the portfolio like “we are awesome …, “we are innovative” frome the frontpage so that i have a frontpage with projects and some text


2. is it possibile to have more recent work/posts on the frontpage, not only 5 but 10 in two rows?

Please accept my apologies for delayed reply! I somehow missed this comment.

Yes, both are possible with minor code modifications. You’ll find instructions to both here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

Hey Guys What do i need to put in the footer widget to show the social icon for pinterest? Thanks in advance, Lee

You’ll find example widget code here: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#footer and icons map is here in “Glyphs” section: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/web-symbols

I’m not sure if Pinterest icon is present there. If not, how about http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-social-icons/ plugin? It creates a widget with social icons. Works great with Daisho.

You may need to add the following to your child theme’s style.css to center icons on mobile resolutions: @media (max-width: 720px) { .simple-social-icons { ul { float: none; margin: 0 auto; display: table; } }

Hi I am trying to create a link from my slider homepage to open a multimedia file in a new window? I have put the following code into the custom .css box but cant get it to work…?

[video_lightbox_youtube video_id=IGxQ9FJzB6I width=1280 height=720 anchor=http://threeguru.com/cms/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/corporate-video-production.png]

Any help would be much appreciated guys. Thanks, Lee

May I ask you to create a support ticket? I’m not certain where that code is placed so ideally I’d need your WordPress login and password to check that.

In [Slideshow > Add New] you can add slides with images. From what I see this works well on your website at this moment. Slide’s button can link somewhere, to some external location.

HI! i am trying to edit content and the font is not the one demo theme is using. how do i keep the same presets?? thank u!

This file is loaded in the source code of your website and it changes this font. Now I see that you added .welcome-text { font: 300 50px/1.125 "Open Sans", sans-serif; } in custom CSS code and font-family: 'comic sans ms', sans-serif; in inline style and now this takes priority.

Ok, how do I change the font of the welcome text on the homepage to Russian language without the font becoming bold automatically? because right now it does not look the way it should be( regular). we cleaned the theme and installed it again and the font is still bold.

It’s currently not a clean installation. I see some font changes in the custom code: p { font-family: "PT Serif", arial, sans-serif; }. And there’s a thin text in Open Sans above the slideshow: http://gyazo.com/b2def682b13e98b3e4a83a711b9a1a41.png

Is this resolved now?

hi, is this possible to replace the way of showing portfolio minatures when mous on top? when you load the main page you see pictures and when the mouse is on the picture it turns in to one coloured rectangle with the title and what im asking is if its possible to have the title first and when mouse is on top it will turns in to the picture? thank you very much :)

I’m sure that I’ve seen this on the support forum and I provided the full code someone but I can’t find it now.

  • Hide image: .project-img-visible { opacity: 0; }
  • Show on mouse over: .element:hover .project-img-visible { opacity: 1; }
  • Show the title and description on mouse over: probably there is such option in [Portfolio > Add New > Display Thumbnail Meta Data] but in case it isn’t please use this: .element .symbol, .element .name, .element .categories { opacity: 1; visibility: visible; }

All that code should go to /modules/library-isotope/portfolio.css, at the bottom.

thanks, it works :)

i have one more question about page of portfolio: there is too long distance between description and text below, how to change it?

If you’re referring to a project view and description there then it’s: .project-description { margin-bottom: 3em; } in style.css on line 344.

How can I link each one of the “Client.png” images located in the footer to outbound web site(s)? If I only have one site to link up to at this time with more adding later, can you help make that happen? Thanks!!

Sure, you can use standard HTML links to achieve that. So, if one single image has this code:

  • <img src="http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/client1.png" alt="" />
  • then it would become <a href="http://example.com/"> <img src="http://themes.devatic.com/daisho/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/client1.png" alt="" /></a>

I cannot change the menu icon. I am having issues displaying description field for menus I cannot find

” ‘Screen Settings’ at the top of WordPress admin panel.”

as described in the documentation…

Thank you in advance!

In the newest theme version you can use CSS Classes and their field is visible by default. Here’s a list of available icons and their classes: http://docs.devatic.com/daisho/#header

thank you!

Hello! Great theme! I’m trying to figure out how to use the classes you already have set up for contact form 7. On our contact page: http://welovetothink.com/contact/ I put a quiz but it keeps styling it funny (as you should see). How can I make it look like the other items on the form? Thanks!

Hey Flow! Thanks for the quick response! I removed that line and it didn’t help much :/ I assume I should update to the newest version though I’m afraid of what potential changes we’ve made to it. Is there a safe way of testing this? Thanks!

I figured it out! Lot’s of major changes in the theme since the last update! Only thing I can’t figure out how to do (and I’m trying to avoid importing all the data since my site is live) are the new shortcodes – how do I fix the [highlight] now? Thanks Flow!

Highlight was removed because TinyMCE that you have in WordPress offers text color option, <mark> tag in HTML highlights the text and Symple Shortcodes offers highlight shortcodes. Here’s a screenshot from my localhost: http://gyazo.com/5bfbc6c3d3cb049d37056a11eae32650.png

Let me know if you need more information about anything!

Yes, changes are vast but I think that it’s the last time the main structure of this theme is updated. It’s already well done in 90% of places so further updates will only introduce new features, fix minor bugs and improve the style.

Hi there. I´ve just noticed that recently I am not receiving emails from the Contact Form 7 plug- in….. any ideas how to fix this? It says the message has been sent, but I don´t receive it. I´m on Godaddy hosting.


Please see “Q: My contact form doesn’t send emails. What to do?” – http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-common-changes

GoDaddy has reported issues if it comes to sending emails (as far as I remember they don’t send emails to Gmail at all unless you have some special configuration). They should be able to give you more information about that.

If Contact Form 7 doesn’t work = WordPress or PHP doesn’t work on this server because mail() and/or wp_mail() can’t be used. Contact Form 7 is one of the most popular plugins out there.
