Hi there Is it possible to remove the Author from the blog?


Yes. Please go to “Theme Options > Blog” and select “Yes” for the option of “Override Post Meta Info”. Then just select “No” for “Show author name” option.

I’m trying to adjust the LayerSlider, so it would show the pictures (slides) from side to side (edge to edge, no white margins in between, just the way it is presented on the demo version of Fineliner). I’ve already put “100%” in slider settings => slider width. Yet, margins from both sides. How to fix this? Let me add the size of pictures is appropriate (it’s not because pictures are too small).


I notice that the current LayerSlider you are using is placed into the content area so that is why there are left and right margins.

So, firstly just remove that slider out of the page. Then go to “Theme Options > Home Slider” and select “LayerSlider” for the “Slider Type” option. Lastly, simply enter the shortcode of the slider into the field. By using this reserved space, the home slider will have 100% width across the area. ;)

Thank you from all of my intern, non-IT heart

You’re welcome! Glad I could help!

Is there a way to have 2 separate portfolios (ie – www.domain.com/portfolio/a and www.domain.com/portfolio/b), each with separate filters?


Hi! Any update on the page load issue?

Thanks! :)


Sorry for late reply, I just have been a bit busy lately. I have tried to use pure CSS for vertical alignment for the hover text but still no luck. Also, the issue seems to only happen on mobile so it would be quite difficult to debug and test. Please allow me some more times, I think I could find out a proper workaround within a few days.

Hi there!

Just to let you know that I have added a fix for this issue in the latest version (v1.4.1). So, please update the theme to the latest version, clear all caches and all should be good. :)


Is there a way to show only categories in portfolio’s “view all”?

I created categories with preview-photos, added some positions into them, and now i can watch in “all” categories and positions mixed together… i want to view categories only there.

or just disable this “all”

Sorry, but there is no option to disable the “All” filter unfortunately. You would need to manually customize the UXbarn Portfolio plugin for that.

how can i change the block Menu to Horizontal Menu


Well, the latest version is 1.4.0. You should see this version number in “Theme Options” after updating it.

So did you mean that you already replaced the files with the latest ones and still see the old version?

Could you please open a private ticket at http://uxbarn.ticksy.com/ and send me the followings:?

1. FTP info of your site (FTP address, username, password)
2. Site URL + login account

I will check what is wrong with that.

I have the template loaded again. now everything is just right. thank you for your efforts.

You’re welcome! Glad to hear that everything is working! :)

What’s been changed in the recent update please? Changelog hasn’t been updated on theme page.

Hi there!

I have already added the changelog of latest version:

Version 1.4.1 (May 28, 2014)
> Fixed a bug of hover text of portfolio items that is out of place on mobile (UXbarn Portfolio plugin's).
> Fixed portfolio's related works display on mobile (UXbarn Portfolio plugin's). 
> Updated UXbarn Portfolio to v1.1.1
> Updated Visual Composer to v4.1.3.1

Can you please tell, which files was updated in newest version? I don’t want to overwrite whole folder….


1. plugin-custom-functions.php
2. /includes/plugin-packages/UXbarnPortfolio_1.1.1.zip
3. /includes/plugin-packages/VisualComposer_4.1.3.1.zip

Anyway, kindly note that, I would always strongly recommend to replace every theme file from the package per update. The latest version is a tiny one so it will not be a problem updating only some files. But if it is a major updated version, there will be a chance to get unexpected issues.

If you would like to customize the theme and do not want to lose any customizations that are made in the theme files when updating, I would suggest to use Child Theme concept. Please see more info here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes :)

Hi there, just wondering if you had any idea why I’ve lost the responsiveness of my site http://fionalcampbellballet.com? I’m really at a loss and it’s probably something i’ve done but your input would be very much appreciated.

Well, I just checked your “fineliner-responsive.css” file and it is still not the correct one from the package. Here is the one from your site: http://cl.ly/image/2H112H2k2w0C . And this is the default one from the package: http://cl.ly/image/0p3S1X2U0Y2P .

I do not think it has something to do with the home slider. Please try to replace the “fineliner-responsive.css” with the default one and test it again.

Sorry I don’t know why that didn’t change as I thought it did – that’s it working now and it’s looking great, thanks again for your help.

No problem! Happy to hear that! ;)

Hi there,

Still enjoying your work and getting tons of positive feedback. Just wantedd to let you know that.

Do you know if it would be possible to use a specific album in the Flickr Widget? I only seem to be able to view a complete Photostream instead of a specific album? It would greatly improve my use of that Widget because it would saves tonnes of space at my hosting company.

Hi there!

Thanks! Happy to hear that you have been enjoying using the theme! :)

For the question, there is currently no option for that but it is a great idea indeed. You can try customizing the code of the widget a bit to fetch the photos from the specific album set:

1. Open ”/includes/custom-widgets.php” file.
2. Find this code:
echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.flickr.com/badge_code_v2.gne?show_name=1&count=' . $photo_amount . '&display=' . $display . '&size=s&layout=x&source=user&user=' . $flickr_id . '"></script>';
3. Replace it with:
echo '<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.flickr.com/badge_code_v2.gne?show_name=1&count=' . $photo_amount . '&display=' . $display . '&size=s&layout=x&source=user_set&set=' . $flickr_id . '"></script>';

Notice that the “source” is now set as “user_set” and it uses “set” instead of “user” query string from the default code.

Now back to the “Appearance > Widgets” page, you can now enter the set ID (album ID) that you would like to fetch the photos from. You can find the set ID on the URL of that album (screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/1K3e3120362i ).

I will do more further tests and might probably add this into the next version. :)

Love this theme! Can you please tell me how to create the circle and square gallery thumbnails? Thanks.

Hi there!

On the page edit screen:

1. Click “Add element” button.
2. Select “Image Gallery/Slider” element.
3. You will then see this screen: http://cl.ly/image/0u2Y2Y260744 . Just upload images and set the options here for this gallery element.

Ah, OK. I was trying to do it with the sortable Portfolio.

I want to add a Featured Products section to the home page. I used this shortcode:

[featured_products per_page=”4” columns=”4” orderby=”date” order=”desc”]

Unfortunately, text is showing vertically underneath the thumbnail. Should I make some adjustment to the CSS, or do you have a better shortcode or HTML to use.


Is this “featured_products” shortcode from WooCommerce plugin? Could you please also send me your site URL so I could have a look on that?

This is really strange. I tried both [featured_products per_page=”12” columns=”4”] and [featured_products per_page=”4” columns=”4” orderby=”date” order=”desc”] yesterday resulting in the vertical text. Today I used [featured_products per_page=”12” columns=”4”] and now it looks normal. Maybe it was a server glitch. Anyway, never mind.

Nice template, btw.

Awesome! Glad to hear that. :)

Hey there, Thanks for building such a nice theme. I have a question about the site structure though. Since i don’t have much content, I’d like to have it all on one page but still with the option to jump via the header menu to a specific content part.

Example: My page consists of the parts 1. portfolio 2. about 3. contact

But instate of scrolling down, i’d like to jump straight to the contact part by clicking on contact in the header menu.

Is there an option to do that?

Hi there!

Unfortunately there is no option for that. The theme originally is not designed for one-page scrolling using menus. So, in this case, you would need to manually customize the theme for that. I have also found this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/page-scroll-to-id/ . It might also help. :)

P.S. You can also google it using keywords like “one page scroll plugin wordpress”.

Is it possible to add a portfolio slideshow directly in a page, trying to at the bottom of this page: http://stagers.mystagingwebsite.com/project-management/


Thanks for the information, I really think that I did all this already, I made a video so you can see what I am seeing, please let me know what is wrong: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3117105/2014-06-10_1430.zip

I am able to get what I am trying to do, but it is not using a portfolio it is using “Image Gallery/Slider” and select the images I want to use.

Ah, I see. Glad to hear that! :)

Hi !

Is it possible to add bullets under the slider of a portoflio item ? I saw this option when I create a slider with visual composer, but I can’t find it when I want to use “regular” portfolio slider.

Thanks for your help.

Hi there!

Unfortunately there is no option for that. You would need to manually customize the CSS of the bullets. Please try this:

1. Go to “Style Customizer > Others > Custom CSS”.
2. Enter this into the box:
#uxb-port-single-images-container .flex-control-nav {
display: block;
    bottom: -20px;
    margin-left: 0 !important;
z-index: 20;

.flex-control-nav li {
    margin: 0 3px !important;

.flex-control-paging li a {
    background: #dfdfdf;
    -webkit-box-shadow: none;
    -moz-box-shadow: none;
    box-shadow: none;
    width: 13px;
    height: 13px;

.flex-control-paging li a:hover {
    background: #ccc;

.flex-control-paging li a.flex-active {
    /*background: #e66f66;*/

This should help making the bullets display on the slider.

In case you would like to use custom CSS for other elements, I would recommend “Developer Tools” on Chrome or “Firebug” on Firefox to inspect the elements on the page. Then you can know which CSS selector to adjust.

I bought the template and I am customizing (colors, fonts etc) – I have received 2 updates to the files and I haven’t downloaded the updates yet. If I download the updates: 1. will it over write any of my blog posts? 2. will I lose the colors and fonts that I have customized? 3. when there are updates to the template what/how is the best way to update the newest updates.

Hi there!

1. Replacing theme files will not affect your data that are saved in the database. So your pages and posts will not be overwritten. Anyway, I would also strongly suggest to back up your site and database every time before updating the theme.

2. Where did you customize the CSS? If you directly edited “style.css” file of the theme to customize the style, your changes will be lost after updating the theme (the file will be replaced by the updated one).

3. So, to prevent the situation as 2., if you would like to customize the CSS, you can put your custom CSS into “Style Customizer > Others > Custom CSS” box. You will see Style Customizer menu in your admin section.

Or, you can implement Child Theme for any customization. This would be more flexible because you can also customize other parts as well, not only the CSS styling. Please see more info about Child Theme here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes


I can not get any of the Portfolio items to create a page. Even the test data fails to create a page for each Porfolio item, so all I get is a not found page error after clicking on a Portfolio item. The pages are all show as published, do you know what is wrong?


I have a Wordpress MultiSite and it looks like the portfolio subdirectory is not created. Normal blogs are created in the file subdirectory for each site and work correctly. My guess is the Portfolio category is not compatible with WP multisties unless you have a work around.

Thanks. Jade

I found the fix for using the portfolio on a multisite. Just change the permalinks setting to the default. Everything works great now!


Hi Jade,

Glad to hear that you have figured that out! :)

But, actually there should not be any problem with WP Multisite. I also have been using Multisite for all the live preview sites of my themes. I could set the permalink as “Post name” as normal. Maybe it has something to do with server configuration I guess?

Hi there,

Pre-sale question: The most important part of my website are portfolios. Many of them (possibly over a 100). Is it possible to have unlimited portfolios with this theme? Also, can I use the same categories (i.e photo, illustration, video) titles on each portfolio? Is there a bulk upload option?

Many thanks!

Hi there!

1. Yes. You can add portfolio items the same way just like blog posts (screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/1P341K3p0D1D ). The theme uses standard WP functionaility to manage the custom post type’s posts.

2. I am not sure I understand the question correctly. Did you mean to have many portfolio items under the same category? If so, then yes. You can create “Fashion” category, for example, then add 5 portfolio items that are the works under this category.

3. Did you mean the bulk upload for portfolio items from scratch? If so, unfortunately not. Or if it is not, could you please elaborate?

Thanks for your reply.

Regarding question 2; I mean if I have portfolioA, portfolioB, etc and in each one I want to have categories with the same titles; i.e cat1, cat2, cat3, but I want images from portfolioA to show only in cat1 assigned to portfolioA, and cat2 from portfolioA not the ones from portfolioB, portfolioC etc. So each portfolio will have exactly the same categories titles, but different images. I hope that makes sense?

I am afraid that it would not work that way. If three portfolio items (portA, portB, portC) have the same set of categories assigned (cat1, cat2, cat3), and you select to display “cat2”, all three items will be listed because all of them are also under the “cat2” category.

Sorry I might have missed this but how do you set up portfolio categories in the footer as a widget like you do in the demo?

Hi there!

You can simply use “Tag Cloud” widget and select “Portfolio Categories” from the list (screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/1S0r1t3D161v ). :)
