Pre sales questions please .. I’m a photographer and this could be what I’m looking for
1) The full screen image does not seem to scale to fit the size of the browser. Is it possible to make the image scale to fit the browser?
2) Can I create multiple protfolios and have some (or all) of them displays a slide show that is full screen (or full browser window) ?
3) Can I create a page that is password protected?
1. Yes, I can supply you with a very simple code change which will stop the image from re-sizing like the demo & instead resize whilst respecting the image, the only issue beyond there is whether you want the image to crop and preserve the window height, or to not crop but not fill the window height, the choice is yours from that point
2. No, Montreal currently only has a full-screen slideshow on the front page, this might be a feature we add in the future, but currently the post sliders are a nice, responsive flex slider, have a look through the example portfolio posts to see for yourself.
3. Again, this is something that we might be looking at adding in the future, but isn’t currently integrated.
2) On the Portfolio Basic can each block have a different set of images?
2a) Can I change the size of the popup slider?
3) Hmm, OK, if I know php can I create my own pages that are password protected and add/modify your theme?
2 & 2a) If you don’t see the functionality in the demo it’s likely it isn’t in the theme. I’m not 100% sure what you mean by question 2, but you can have multiple ‘Portfolio Basic’ pages each loading a different category of posts to create separated portfolios, as for 2a the Lightbox will adapt to your screen size provided you put larger images in, I’ve only used small images in my preview to keep load times nice and quick
3. If you know PHP and Wordpress you can modify and adapt my theme to whatever you want
Thanks – purchased …
On the contact tab, can I change the map location so that it is a box on the right of the form?
No I’m afraid on the contact page the map is either as the demo, or you can have the featured image instead. Perhaps a plugin would complete what you need?
I am using ‘Portfolio Grid White’ – when I hover over the images the name of the image doesn’t appear. Like on this page http://www.madeinebor.com/montreal/portfolio-grid-white/ I can see the text for about a second and then it disappears! Is there a way to lighten the text and make the text stay for longer.
Also, could you let me know how I can change the headings ‘Our recent work’ and ‘Our recent notes’
Hey there, thanks!
I’m just talking with my HTML designer about the text issue, the background colour is the highlight colour, so you can change that by modifying your theme settings.
Thanks for your reply Tom..
The problem with changing the highlight colour is that my menu is black and at the moment when you highlight over the menu text, the text becomes grey. If I change the highlight colour to black so it is similar to the design on your portfolio grid page, I can no longer see the menu titles when I highlight over them.
I was confused at first as to why it didn’t look like the page in your demo site, but then noticed on your site you have overlayed some text on the portfolio page – http://www.madeinebor.com/montreal/portfolio-grid-white/ – Do you have any idea as to how I could achieve something similar.
In terms of making the text stay on when you hover over it the closest I have got is by altering the Z-index with CSS
In terms of the second question – this is actually more important than the first question, so if you could let me know asap where I can change it that would be great.
P.S – to change those titles open page-home.php in your theme files and do a simple CTRL+F search for what you want to change
have a psd file included?
No it doesn’t I’m afraid, the HTML version is included though.
Awesome theme! I removed the sub-menu Notes-List from the Main Menu (top) and only use ‘Notes’ which leads to the blog list. When I click on it, all posts are shown without images. I tried to set a featured image or a gallery images in each posts and checked gallery within each post.
Would you like to leave a ticket for me at;
If you can leave a link to your website on my ticket system that would also help
I sent you an email as I don’t like to post URLs in forums etc.
Also, how can a button be displayed in a widget at all?
Any reply? Thank you.
Additionaly, the send button on the contact page doesn’t show up correctly. Would be nice if you can check the URL I sent you as I would like to release the page.
Hey there, sorry for the slight delay, I was enjoying a weekend with my family, I’m looking at your email now and will respond shortly
No worries. Hopeto get the button placed in the side widget.
Just emailed you back
hi how are you i love the theme!!! i hope i have better luck with customer service then i did with the last layout i bought and completely lost my money cus i couldnt get any help.
Either way love the layout and its perfect for what im doing. Im just wondering the project manager contact form can i have 2 of them? so one is for one page and on an other page an other one and also can i change and or add/delete sections of the form to make both different? if so im sold!!
You can easily do this, but it will require direct modification of the theme files themselves, so a little HTML knowledge will go a long way here!
I can give you a few pointer happily but you will need to modify code – just a warning
Thanks for your kind words
Love the theme. Just a couple of questions:
1) On the homepage can the tag lines be disabled?
2) Is the notes section the blog for the website?
1. You can remove all of the content of the homepage to whatever you need. The homepage in my demo represents every homepage option being turned on, if you’d like to strip it back somewhat then you can do that very easily by my homepage options.
2. The ‘notes’ section is indeed the blog for the theme, or you can publish a ‘notes-list’ page if you’d prefer a simpler blog.
Thanks for the prompt reply. We are going to purchase your theme.
Hi there !
I bought your template two weeks ago and everything’s fine ! Bravo !
I just have one question, how can I add more clients to the clients section. I just can have 6 and I need at least to add 14 of them.
Thanks for your answer, kind of an emergency
Thanks! I just added this to the development list, I’m releasing an update tomorrow afternoon (GMT) and this is now one of the new features along with a number of tiny bug fixes etc.
Oh wow. That’s a fast reply. Ok, I’ll wait until tomorrow afternoon. Thanks again !!
The Wordpress version thinks my pc is a tablet/smartphone. The Drupal version does not.
Is there a big difference between the functionality/specs of the Drupal and Wordpress version?
We’re two different developers so there will be a few differences, could you leave a ticket at my support site with your URL and which browsers/versions you’re having the mobile navigation in.
There’s a touch detection script in the theme I can help you remove if you really want to
Not everything with a touchscreen is a tablet (AIO’s, laptops, etc). So when the touch detection is removed the theme will not adapt when viewed on a tablet?
The PC I’m talking about is a 24” Windows 7 AIO-pc from Asus with Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. Only Internet Explorer display shows the right version of the site. Chrome and Firefox show the tablet version.
It seems that Modernizr, the script I have been using for touch detection is now failing in some cases due to browser updates, I will be releasing updates to my themes later today to fix this.
When I make a portfolio page, the word portfolio is part of the url. Is there a way to leave it out? Now the url name is:
And I want to have it like this:
Thanks, it works!
Hi I was just wondering if there is a way to make the homepage background the same background for every page? Like so that when the user clicks on another page, the page contents just scroll over and land on top of the same scrolling homepage background? Any help with this would be very much appreciated. Thanks again.
This would take some pretty intensive custom development of the theme. It would be a large job so I wouldn’t even know where to tell you to start – maybe a google search for something like ‘AJAXify Wordpress’—but again, this is going to be a pretty big job!
So far the theme is nearly perfect. I do have a couple of questions:
1. Widgets and featured image do not seem to be working for me.
2 Is there a way to eliminate the “Our Recent Work” and “Our Recent Notes” from the homepage?
Hey there, just seen you’ve solved issue #2.
As far as issue #1—it’s strange you’d be having issues with those items as they are both Wordpress Core features, try switching to the ‘Twenty-Twelve’ theme and see if these features work in that theme. You may need to re-install Wordpress, if not then leave a ticket at my support site for further help;
I figured out #2, though still confused about #1. Seems that the featured image tiles, and sidebar widgets are not working.
Answered your question above, cheers!
Hi, have a small problem. The submenu doesn’t show up in Safari 6.0.2 (MacBook pro). Works well in chrome. What do you think is the problem?
It’s probably a plugin conflict or similar—try disabling all plugins / extensions / widgets and see if this improves the matter.
Otherwise drop a ticket for me with your URL at;
Hi, Me again.
Only on a screen that is wider than the portfolio stripe pictures together.
You answered your own question there The stripe portfolio is recommended for 10 items and above, a larger screen width than the items will cause the behaviour you describe, in this case it’s better to switch to the ‘drag’ portfolio type whilst you build up the portfolio and then switch back to ‘stripe’ when you’re ready.
Thanks! Did I miss that in the documentation?
Nope, I need to add that in
I just purchased this theme, and none of the carousels are working. http://mgmarkham.com I uploaded six images for the home page. none of them show up. there is an endless progress wheel. I am very frustrated.
I’m releasing an update for this in the coming minutes, you should see an update hit your “Updates” section on your dashboard shortly.
Sorry for the inconvenience
sorry, I just realized I didn’t phrase my question/problem very well.
I just purchased the Montreal theme, and am trying to add images to the home page, called Markham Design, with Page Template: “Home”, and have added 4 images to the Home Gallery Image inputs. None of them show up, and the page has an endless progress wheel on it. http://mgmarkham.com
Love the theme and except for having the same problem as Babygraceartfactory everything seems to be working well. Waiting anxiously for the update!
No problem It’s just a little mistake on my part, you’l notice if you enable the homepage twitter section everything will work fine. Update going live in the next 10 minutes!
And while I am here – I am under the impression that the optimum resolution for homepage gallery images is 1120×500, can you confirm or correct this? Thanks!
Use whatever size you like That size sounds fine to me.
