Flow, how I can change the URL of the portfolio-cancelclose button (which directs by default to the home page) to the All Works portfolio gallery overview page? Thanks for a quick help.

Please try setting some main portfolio page in [Konzept > General] and that should work or as a last resort you can set [Portfolio > Parent portfolio page] for each project individually.

I forgot to thank you, so THANK YOU Flow. That did the trick.

You’re welcome! I’m glad I could help :)

Hello, congratulations for the theme.

I have little problem with the portfolio at home. On chrome grid of the portfolio of the investor you can be clearly seen; while on firefox the grid of the portfolio can not be ordered, and then remain blank spaces.

How can I solve the problem?

This is my site: www.giuseppevecchio.com

Thank you

Sorry for my English.

Thank you!

We don’t crop the images or restrict them to any particular size which allows them to be of different aspect ratio than the default 4:3.

This flexibility comes with a little drawback: you have to upload all the thumbnails with the same aspect ratio. Therefore you can mix for example 400×300px and 800×600px but if you upload 801×600px then it is likely to start leaving empty holes.

In the future we’ll be most likely cropping the images using https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/add_image_size/ because since introduction of srcset in WordPress 4.4 there is a reason for that.

Thanks, problem solved.


I’m very interested Konzept theme and I have only one question: can I import one of demos (full version of cors)? Specifically, I mean “Light Version (Thumbnails)” or “Light Version (Projects List)”. Both are great :).

Thank you and forgive my English please…

With greetings, Bart

You can create a portfolio page in [Pages > Add New]. It has to be set to portfolio page template. Then you can make it your main portfolio page in [Konzept > General]. You can switch it to the thumbnail view in [Pages > (that portfolio page) > Portfolio Type] (only once it’s already published).

You can add projects in [Projects > Add New]. Each project must belong to a category.

You can include/exclude categories in [Pages > (your portfolio page)]. By default all categories are included on the newly created portfolio pages.

Hi, Flow

Thx for your quick reply. I know the rules – are clear and everything is easy in theory but unfortunately does not work. I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe some error or bug? Where could I send You some screenshots of my control panel (only three screensshots: Pages>Portfolio, Portfolio>Projects Settings and Konzept>General)?

Help me please, because now I can only shoot in the head…

Best regards

It will surely work if everything is configured like described in my above reply (you only need a portfolio page set to thumbnails and some projects with thumbnails uploaded).

You can create a support ticket where you can share your WordPress login and password privately by updating your forum profile information. You can also attach links to screenshots there (which you can upload to Google Drive, Dropbox or similar place).

Dear Flow, in Portfolio you provide individual CSS settings for each portfolio page (cursor color, full screen, etc.). But, in the slideshow you don’t have such CSS class feature. Then how can I make my ‘slideshow video’ be displayed fullscreen?

That’s because there is only one featured slideshow and you can reach any slide using #featured_slideshow #slide_0 { } in your CSS style files.

All videos inside should be: auto-starting, looped, fullscreen, background. We also considered having them muted but they aren’t.

Hey there! Few questions before purchase:

- Is font changeable within a theme?

- Is there an easy-ish way to divide main thumbnail grid with a thin border (preferably not using the image itself since one pixel border would show as two but only on the points where thumbnails touch)?

- Can thumbnails be made so they link to pages (as in: be used as the main links) instead of post categories?

- Can main menu be adjusted horizontally (example: only five links next to each other instead of being under one another) therefore making it thinner?

Sorry if these are silly or too many questions, I tried to keep it short, but I have to do some rearrangements for a client and would like to know what are my options before I start :grin:

Thank you, Dan

1) No.

2) You can request such code on the support forum or check the FAQ.

3) Yes.

4) No.

I wouldn’t worry about the fonts from the first question because it’s easy to load new Google Fonts in /core/fonts.php (or use Typekit or @font-face with self-hosted font files) and update font-family in style.css but as for the header you’d have to adjust its styles in style.css and that’s a +/- 15 minutes task for an average developer.

Thanks a lot, I think that will work. I’ll check back with a client but will most like follow up with a purchase and experiment from there.

Hi, it works with the latest Wordpress version?


I have version 1.1 installed how do I bring the theme up to date with the latest version 2.2? Also are you intending to continue with addition development on this theme. Thank you

Please follow http://support.forcg.com/topic/how-to-update-a-theme guide to update to 2.x versions. There are a couple of differences between 1.x and 2.x versions.

As for continuing development the theme is based on the default Underscores framework and this is the same one that the current default theme (2016) uses. Therefore, you can install this theme in year 2010, 2015 or 2020 and it’s likely to be working fine (because browsers aren’t updated with anything major in such short period of time). Its code is up-to-date. It doesn’t require many technical updates.

As for the theme’s design and features we’re currently not planning on adding more demos for this project (like some general purpose themes often do lately) but there are some things that would be good to have. These include (among others): migrating metaboxes to use Advanced Custom Fields plugin, adding support for new Customizer features (like logo), adding Shortcake plugin support (it is likely to be added to WordPress itself), adding support for pagination (recently added to WordPress), adding some general Customizer options (e.g. global accent color), updating theme’s CSS to use mobile-first approach and possibly removing the slideshow on mobile phones and displaying the pictures one below another (this is required to correctly support videos, text descriptions etc.).

There are many small things that could be improved. Any major changes would probably result in a new theme rather than major updates to this one.

hey flow i just activated php7 and all runs well. except for the theme settings in the backend. whenever i go there i got this error:

Warning: Declaration of TGM_Bulk_Installer_Skin::before() should be compatible with Bulk_Upgrader_Skin::before($title = ’’) in /kunden/439204_22765/webseiten/wordpress/wp-content/themes/konzept/core/plugins/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 1893

Warning: Declaration of TGM_Bulk_Installer_Skin::after() should be compatible with Bulk_Upgrader_Skin::after($title = ’’) in /kunden/439204_22765/webseiten/wordpress/wp-content/themes/konzept/core/plugins/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 1893

but i solved it by replacing the class-tgm-plugin-activiation.php with the latest version.

thanks and all my best thomas

cool, one more question. where can i change the “older entries” words for the pagination in the blog? i could find it in the php files, but i only to a superficial look.

In core/nav.php.

It won’t be there for long though because WordPress already has this function in its files and we will be removing our one.

After this removal you’ll be able to translate that using PO/MO files of WordPress.

awesome thanks!

Hi, I have media library page empty when actives Konzept theme. And active other theme (like twenty fourteen), the media library backs to normal. May I know where I can fix this issue? Thanks.

Thanks for the info. I’ve tried to disable all plugins and media library page is still empty. I have also sent you the WordPress login information.

We replied to your email. You’re using version of this theme. All 1.x versions have been discontinued in 2013 and only 2.x versions are compatible with the newest WordPress.

Got it and thanks for the explanation.

hey flow i want to achieve the following: i like to have a feature image set for each portfolio item in the backend. this image should appear as a background when you click the portfolio. right now this is a white background with transparency. can you help me with this? many thanks in advance thomas

You could also use https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/esc_url to sanitize that URL.

Using featured image is fine too.

The JavaScript file calls bringPortfolio(id) every time you click any thumbnail. This function gets data from projectsArray which is populated in project-loop.php (when each thumbnail is printed it gets fetched from the database with additional information). You’ll need to extend that PHP array first.

Then in the JS file simply assign var projectBackground = projectsArray[current_id][11]; (indexes 0 to 10 are already defined) and do something similar to how the title is replaced: jQuery('.project-title').html(title); but this time with jQuery’s css().

hey flow, yes you are right, i changed to:
$feat_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'thumbnail-size', true ); and
url( <?php echo esc_url( $feat_image[0] ); ?> ) which is much sharper.
for the project-loop.php i think i need to put your code somewhere between lines 247 and 276, but i do not understand clearly whats going on there. maybe you can be more detailed about this? also with the “JS file” you mean /modules/functions/portfolio.js?
thanks thomas

project-loop.php prints all the thumbnails with a standard loop. $projectsArray is on line 235 in my file. You can add there any data that should be visible in JavaScript.

Yes, /modules/functions/portfolio.js. The function that loads projects and uses projectsArray is at the beginning of that file.

project-loop.php has a lot of additional code solely because each project also loads the portfolio page in its background. While this looks nice and allows quicker navigation I think that this is a feature that we will be removing (so that all projects accessed directly would not show the whole portfolio page in the background) and if that would happen project-loop.php would not need at least 25% of the code.

Hi, Now works with WP 4.6?

The demo website uses WordPress 4.6 and it works like before.

Hi Flow, Few questions if i am allowed.

1. do you offer a modding service for this template?

2. Would it be possible for me (Or you or anyone) to insert/overlay an audio /video player into the thumbnail boxes (So people could stream audio from directly within the portfolio preview box without having to go to a new page) ? Wether that be through custom coding or a plugin from codecanyon.

3. Is it possible to have 8 portfolio thumbnails per row rather than 4?

4. I need to add a lot of categories (motion/photography/print etc) If i add more will the menu repeat itself to the right of the original row (like in the picture)?

5. Is it possible to get rid of the big title headers under the menu bar (such as blog/about us/services etc)

6. Is it possible for the video slideshow to have a play button so it doesn’t autostart?

Here’s a quick mockup of what i mean.


Thanks Will

1. No.

2. People enter websites from various devices nowadays and you probably want to support desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones etc. If so such modification would require multiple cases to handle every such device and resolution. (E.g. on desktop you can have such thumbnails on almost any browser size but iPhone will not play videos/audio without fullscreen player so you need a different mechanism).

Such modification is not hard to do but it’s time-consuming. If you think that it’s worth investing e.g. $200 in this you could have it done by someone from https://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-customization

These thumbnails have no special logic. The whole code that creates them fits within a couple of lines of code and can be summarized to this: .thumbnail { width: 25%; float: left; } (height is inherited from image itself).

3. Sure. In style.css it’s enough to change width: 25% for ”.element” to 12.5%. This grid changes this number to 2 and 1 columns on lower resolutions so you could update adequate @media queries in the same file too.

4. No, but you can do this: .pf_nav { column-count: 2; } (in child theme’s style.css or Jetpack plugin’s custom CSS field) or a similar small adjustment. Please note that the header follows this grid: 50%/25%/25% by default.

5. With custom CSS: .page-id-1234 .page-title { display: none; }

6. The featured slideshow’s video is background, looped, with sound, auto-playing. On mobile phones it may be disabled and replaced with an image. Portfolio slideshow has click/tap to play anything and all videos in portfolio projects are supposed to work on mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.

oh dear. ok thanks for the response. Point two. Wow. Clueless.

As for point two this theme is meant to display fullscreen images but if you want a simple overlay with an audio player instead then this should work on all devices and such modification is easy to be done but would take at least 2-3 hours (which converts to $50-150).

Hi, would this theme be updated further? would it be able to have portfolio sorting icon such as : Name & date (ascending, descending) ? Something similar to this: http://armada.dream-demo.com/portfolio/justified-portfolio/1-portfolio-justified-grid

Yes, it will be updated further. It’s based on the default framework called Underscores which makes its general template structure up-to-date.

The thumbnails aren’t using any library, those are just images with width: 25% set. Filtering is handled by a very small custom JavaScript code snippet. It would be possible to insert another such snippet to add other types of filtering but such feature is not present in the theme files and is not planned.

This theme will always remain a very simple portfolio, it’s meant to be used as a single portfolio page (for most users that’s less than 28 projects) and it allows viewing just images and videos in fullscreen.

If you wanted some more complex theme there is a lot to choose from on ThemeForest. Our other theme called Daisho is similar to Konzept but its portfolio allows any arbitrary content instead and the thumbnails use Isotope library.

Thanks for the info!

Hi Flow. I purchased the theme time ago but I lost my website. I downloaded the new theme version and installed Wordpress from 0 in a new server, then I installed the theme but I am having several issues… If I change the published project or slide date to change the order, I lost all the info in. F.E. I change the date and automactly I lost all the excerpt, text and picture into the project or slide when I save…and is annoying…What could I do? Thanks

In [Projects > Add New] you should be able to fill in all the fields and create a project. If you can’t do that please open a support ticket and provide your WordPress login and password in your profile (it’s visible only to you and support then).

Please also make sure that you have a portfolio page in [Pages > (any page)] and that it’s set to be your main portfolio page in [Konzept > General].

Dear Flow, when can we expect an update to this amazing theme? Hope you have not abandoned it or lost interest.

I (like many others I suppose) are a bit hesitant to buy since it has been over one and half years since it has been updated last.

We have not abandoned it or lost interest but please consider the following:

1. The HTML of that theme is valid, it’s based on the default framework called Underscores and that framework didn’t have any major updates in a couple of years because it’s already very good and not much can be improved in it. You can’t have any significantly better structure than what is already there. Therefore, you can install and use that theme successfully.

2. The nearest update to this theme will be mainly a maintenance update but we’re also planning to introduce some features that are not obligatory but nice to have (like pagination which is now a part of WordPress or better support for images with srcset, or we’ll clean JS) but it will not result in any significant visual changes visible from a perspective of an average user or a visitor. I hope that before the end of the year we’ll update it.

We’re working on new things and more significant improvements but we don’t share information about that until we have them ready.

It works with wp 4.7?

Yes. The demo website is now using WordPress 4.7.

I don’t know the reason but I am having really big issues with this theme. I had 0 problems during 2 years, but I installed the lastest version and now all the ‘pages’ are 404 error…Why?

I think you have already reported this on the support forum and you mentioned that the reason was some “security plugin”.

To call https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/flush_rewrite_rules and update redirects you can re-save [Settings > Permalinks]. That often helps.

Hi flow,. Great theme. Really easy to personalize. But I want to change a couple of thing… 1.) how can I remove the link from each headline inside the news… I don’t want to deeper in the news and stays just a list of news. Probably it works like a blog and that’s why I’ve tried this solution form a previous comment: “The news section is exactly like the blog page which means that it will always link to the full post by default. In /modules/shortcode-content-slider/content-slider.php on line 50 you can use $output .= get_the_title(); instead of what’s there to change that.” I did it but I doesnt seems to work… Do you know what to do? 2.) The text on the thumbnails of portfolio (projects in this case) I want them to show up directly on the bottom (like they do now) but without this “moving” in and out option. How can i desactivate this moving thing? www.cois.ch Thanks!

1) Yes, you’re right that it works like a blog. You can only modify the shortcode in /modules/shortcode-content-slider/ to change that. You can remove the link from the $title on line 21. That should be sufficient. The line should say $title = $class['title'];.

2) In portfolio.js you can disable all calls to thumbnail_mouse_over() (there is only one on line 1294 in my files) by putting // at the beginning on that line.

Hi flow… N° 2 it did works fine. N° 1 it didnt work. I try some combinations but unsuccessfully…

To remove the titles for the news archive (and not the news page) you’d have to modify line 19 in content.php:

<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
The replacement will be:
<?php if ( ! is_post_type_archive( 'news' ) ) { ?>
<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark">
<?php } ?>
<?php the_title(); ?>
<?php if ( ! is_post_type_archive( 'news' ) ) { ?>
<?php } ?>

Hi There, Your theme has not been updated for years. Due to this my website was hacked. Pls do something about this!!

Hello, we’re not aware of any security issues in the current version of this theme. If you could provide more information about the issue please let us know. The theme is compatible with the newest WordPress 4.8 and is mostly up-to-date.

We’re also hosting the same version of the theme (and it’s exposed to hundreds of weekly visitors) and we didn’t experience any issues so far.

We just updated our other theme 2 days ago and this one is awaiting an update as well. Among other changes its libraries will be updated since some of them have newer versions.
