Hi, know a few have asked about a positioned “sticky” or pinned content or sidebar in a section using “Smooth Scroll” is impossible, unless you disable to “Smooth Scroll”...is there way to do this using GSAP ScrollTrigger, so that you can keep the “Smooth Scroll” which is a nice touch?
Hello! It’s possible if your ScrollTrigger instance is using pinType: “transform” as mentioned in their docs here: ScrollTrigger > Usage & special properties > pinType
Thanks, great I’m on the right track then
It’s a best wordpress theme of all! I would like to use this theme for my business! But how about the SEO?
Hello! Thank you. You can use Yoast SEO or All-in-one SEO or any other WP plugin for SEO optimization.
Loving it so far!
I would love to see maybe a future update to swap out the full screen sidebar “Projects” with lets say sidebar widgets?
So you could have the ability to put address, socials etc.
Thanks. I’ll think about it. Btw, there is a widget area in the header where you can put a few lines of information or socials or language switcher: https://disk.yandex.ru/i/hoWKI2qD5TZn3Q
Ok great thanks, that widget area is helpful as well.
Hello Artem. I know that my support for this item has expired, but… I have a issue with the Arts Mouse Cursor Follower extension . It failed to load properly and was paused in recovery mode. Impossible to restart, and the website crashes if I don’t disable it. Strange because in offline preprod the effect works pretty fine. Any idea where the problem comes from? Thanks for your help! Peace
Hello! I don’t see any crashes of this plugin on the live demo server with latest WordPress and Elementor. If it works just fine on one server but doesn’t work on another then it’s likely that the problems are with this web-server not plugin.
Anyway it’s impossible to advice without looking at the actual website. If you’d like me to check this, please renew your item support period and send your website URL along with login/password to WordPress panel to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Artem, renew my support item OK, i just send you a message Thank you for your support
Hello, Artem! Is there support for multi language? I want to buy a theme and create first version in English + make a language selector that either switches whole text automatically to Russian via Ajax (better) or reloads a page via WPML
Hello! Yes, the theme is compatible with 3 multi-lingual CMS including WPML.
switches whole text automatically to Russian via Ajax (better) or reloads a page via WPML
When you switch between languages, the site will forcefully hard refresh. The translated page version can’t be injected via AJAX.
Thanks for prompt reply. Another question would be, can I use Slider Revolution on top of the Landing Page example? Our team can front-end anything via hard code but I would like the website to be easy for the back office manager to update – the slider data and the main page as well.
The full screen sliders you see in the live demo are custom built Elementor widgets and can be inserted anywhere on the site pages.
Revolution Slider is not a part of bundled plugins set of the theme. Compatibility with theme AJAX transitions is not guaranteed for this plugin.
Hey Artem, bought the theme, went through docs. I want to affirm you that in the lifespan of my WP interest within Themeforest community, your theme does have a great documented and well implemented demo data. Thank you for that.
Other than that, I would like to ask, how to get parallaxed objects fly on top of each other whenever user scrolls a page. You know – Image 1 background of a field, Image 2 man jumping. IMG1 stays, IMG2 moves up when user scrolls down and vise versa. Interested especially in product pages.
Hello! Thank you. You can put a widget container on top of another one using absolute positioning in Elementor: https://disk.yandex.ru/i/G1Pt3erbSm1Ylg However the self movement of parallax container is not supported, unfortunately.
Hi there, Can all the sliders be used for non portfolio links please? For eg. each slide linking to different websites (https://artemsemkin.com/kinsey/wp/slider-background-image-2/)? Thanks and kindest regards.
PS: And are you planning to add albums, like in the Rhye theme please?
Hello! Yes, it’s possible for all fullscreen sliders in the theme.
And are you planning to add albums, like in the Rhye theme please?
There are no plans to extend this feature on other themes including Kinsey.
Hello, I made a onepage site with just link to onother page. If I use navigate on desktop it’s ok but on mobile the menu from the page to the homepage it doesn’t work. Go to : http://newwp.affi.cloud/ the to the link: http://newwp.affi.cloud/softwares/ As you can see when I click from this page I can’t go to the anchor on the homepage (http and not https at te moment)
the same from the revolutionslider. If I click on mobile the arrow on the slider on the homepage I cant go below to the ID #mission….

You have CORS error here: https://disk.yandex.ru/i/2gPKFSDEYZi0iw which interrupts an active AJAX transition.
Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'https://newwp.affi.cloud/#mission' (redirected from 'http://newwp.affi.cloud/#mission') from origin 'http://newwp.affi.cloud' has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.
So fixing SSL and HTTP->HTTPS domain issues are mandatory.
the same from the revolutionslider. If I click on mobile the arrow on the slider on the homepage I cant go below to the ID #mission…
I suspect you have issue there because of incorrect URL in the anchor link. When you land at your homepage the page URL is “https://newwp.affi.cloud/” while your anchor URL is “http://newwp.affi.cloud/home/#mission”. I guess you should adjust the URL here like this: “http://newwp.affi.cloud/#mission”
Hi! Love the theme. Looks gorgeous and is very responsive. Two questions:
1) Is it possible to center align the “Button” element that is included with the Kinsey theme? We’re able to center the default Elementor button, but can’t figure out how to center the theme’s button. 2) Is there a setting to have a single blog post’s title sit on the featured image for the post? Originally it was, but after some issues with Elementor, the title appears above the featured image on single posts.
Hello! Thank you.
1) Is it possible to center align the “Button” element that is included with the Kinsey theme? We’re able to center the default Elementor button, but can’t figure out how to center the theme’s button.
Yes, you can use “Text align” control on the outer column or section: Screenshot #1 Make sure “Button” widget has “Default” or “Full Width (100%)” width Screenshot #2
2) Is there a setting to have a single blog post’s title sit on the featured image for the post?
If you use standard WordPress panel to edit blog posts, you can adjust their layout from Customizer -> Blog -> Single Post -> Featured Image Layout: Screenshot #3. These options are global for all single posts.
If you edit your blog posts with Elementor, they become Elementor-driven entities so the top part layout needs to be adjusted from Page Settings -> Page Masthead. These options are set individually per page/post.
Got them all solved, thank you so much!
HI I am planning to purchase this theme but I have a question? I tried to view this theme in my I-phone and scrolling it manually, it seams not scrolling smoothly or this is how the transition in manual scrolling? I tried the 04 Slider Background Image ( Alternative) this is the demo I am planning to use.
Hello! Those are not scrolling but swiping gestures (page doesn’t actually scroll here). Yes, touch swipes have a bit different mechanic and transition feeling in the sliders.
Hello! You can download this font family and create a self-hosted custom font in WP panel as described in theme docs: Uploading Custom Fonts
Hello, Before I proceed with the Theme’s purchase, I need some info: I need to import data from a file (xml) inside the Portfolio, in order to create a Portfolio Page for each item. Is there any solution for this issue? Thank you.
Hello. The theme provides only mechanism for importing demo data (the one that shown in live preview). Any other data importers/exporters are considered as plugin territory functionality. So it would be better to check the official WordPress Plugins Directory to find an appropriate plugin for your task.
Absolutely love the user experience on this theme. It’s obvious a lot of work went into making everything so elegant and you guys should be proud of the work you’ve done.
Quick question, is the theme comparable with Woocommerce?
Hello! Thank you. No, it’s not compatible with Woocommerce.
I’ve been trying to get border radius on figure project images and section images … but no luck and also will not show in Safari ? Any idea how to do this ?
Hello. Please provide the page URL with your customizations attempts so I can inspect them in browser.
In Chrome I see you’ve already figured it out. In Safari “border-radius” property may not render correctly when used together with 3D transforms and CSS animations but there are a few workarounds that should help:
Option #1: Add “clip-path: inset(0px);” rule as follows: https://disk.yandex.ru/i/Vv9S65qN6k7A6Q
Option #2: Add “transform: translateZ(0);” https://disk.yandex.ru/i/vIExsiBArzva6A
Hello a question and a comment my question is about can you change the font in your theme and second question can you have a video (no button) that all ready plays on the page example on the page ARTE. And the comment if you are on the page ARTE then have your photos that can click on it then you will not get a popup example a plugin called Lightbox: https://artemsemkin.com/kinsey/wp/portfolio/arte/
By the way nice theme.
can you change the font in your theme
Yes. Google Fonts, Adobe Fonts and custom self-hosted fonts are supported.
can you have a video (no button) that all ready plays on the page example on the page ARTE
Yes. Elementor allows to create a section with autoplaying muted video background. Also Kinsey theme supports featured videos along with standard featured images functionality.
on the page ARTE then have your photos that can click on it then you will not get a popup
It seems there was a caching issue. Lightbox should work fine now.
Hello! Thank you. Yes, you can. Kinsey theme supports self-hosted featured videos via an extra custom field registered on posts/pages. Screenshot
Hi Artem, there is a way to set in slider image widget ( carousel view ) lightbox to fullscreen gallery on click ( also if disable dragging ). Thanks
Hello! There is no such feature for the slider images. You could simply use “Masonry Grid” instead.
Hi, thanks for your reply, there is no possibility to customize it?
It’s not something easy to customize. I guess the better way is to re-create the widget from a scratch with adding a lightbox functionality. Or may be try to use Elementor’s standard Carousel widget. I don’t remember but may be it has the built-in lightbox (can’t check this at the moment, sorry).
Hi, I was wondering how customizable this theme is. For example in the demo there are automated transitions from light to dark (when scrolling), is it possible to keep the dark theme all the time? Will I be able to change the colors/theme options without changing the codes or things like style.css?
is it possible to keep the dark theme all the time?
Yes, but this needs to be done manually per each section in Elementor. There is no global “dark” mode toggle.
Will I be able to change the colors/theme options without changing the codes or things like style.css?
Yes, there is a theme options panel in WordPress Customizer. Things like colors and typography can be adjusted from this panel as well. The page elements are built upon custom theme widgets in Elementor which also have their own customization options. While there is a bunch of options to play with, of course it doesn’t cover each and every pixel customization, otherwise it wouldn’t be called a “designed theme”.
Amazing theme by an amazing author. Works as intended right when you install. I was so surprised by the loading speed for all of the effects going on. Amazing job, Artem!
Hi, I have one question before purchase : do you plan to improve performance of theme ? I done some test on gt-metrix and lighthouse and i saw “Performance sore” and “Total Blocking time” were not really good. I know this theme use some powerfull layout, but it would be well to find some equity between performance and design.
thank you in advance.
Hello. The only way to get better numbers is to use less Elementor widgets on the page so there will be less JS code to evaluate. This is kind of maximum possible speed result https://disk.yandex.ru/i/tiRfZUhsfTh7HQ that is possible to achieve with the heme on a moderately loaded page which is not bad in my opinion.
To be honest the score is pretty decent for all animations loaded. Congratulation. The speed performance is a major point for me, that’s why i wanted to know if there was a way to improve it more. For future buyers, it’s clear this theme is one of better I’v tested until today.
I bought the Cassio and Rhye themes a while back. Does Kinsey have similar fullscreen slider options ? i.e. half screen 50/50, and ability to choose fade or webGL transitions ?
Hello! No, it doesn’t include WebGL effects. What included is showcased in live demo. Nothing hidden.
