The 1.2.4 update is now live and in the “Updates” section of buyers themes, this will re-enable the homepage slideshow for any users that were not using the homepage twitter section.
Sorry for the inconvenience
Great theme. I’m wondering if you corrected an issue with the “active/on click” start in the Portfolio Stripe template.
Oh, I have version 1.2.4
Your portfolio-stripe portfolio needs to contain enough items to fill a screen properly so that it can render properly. Until your portfolio has at least 10 items in I’d suggest using one of the more basic portfolio types, then, when it’s ready, simply switch the portfolio type over and it will work fine
You’ll notice on my demo there’s 11 portfolio items in the stripe portfolio.
I hope this helps!
I had a feeling that was the issue. Thanks. I’ll place over 10 items in it.
Thanks for the quick response!
No problem, thanks for the purchase and enjoy Montreal!
I have the same question as " JimmyJam" up above
All blog posts are shown without images and just shown as ” list”. I tried to set a featured image or a gallery images h posts and checked gallery within each post. I want it to look this way as in the theme example
I also want to know if the gallery can have more than 8 images. I did change the “gallery-format.php” and the “page-portfolio-grid-black.php” to have 25 images. I do see the small bars showing there should be images there, however on the dashboard I can’t add the image URLS to each post. Is there a way that I can do this?
Follow the documentation on settings a ‘posts page’, in “Settings” => “Reading” you set a ‘posts page’ and a ‘front page’, whatever page you et as the posts page is now the standard blog with images. The ‘notes list’ page template is just there as another type of blog if you wish to use it.
If you want to be able to add more images to a gallery post format then you’l need to add more image input boxes in /inc/framework/metaboxes.php—you should find the gallery section easily.
Anything else feel free to leave a ticket at; http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com
Thanks for the info! Got the blog to work!
I can’t find the link to the /inc/framework/metaboxes.php in my editor. Is this not where I find that file to edit?
You won’t find the file through your WP Editor, you’ll need to go through FTP or your hosts file editor.
Can I pay you to do this? Seriously I am in the Dreamweaver file and still can’t find exactly where the ” Gallery ” section is.
Will I have to do this every time Wordpress updates?
I found it… Now I get the code to work with no syntax errors but the problem is this:
” Warning: require_once(../Downloads/metabox/init.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/00/10467800/html/wp-content/themes/montreal/inc/framework/metaboxes.php on line 734
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ’../Downloads/metabox/init.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5_3/lib/php’) in /home/content/00/10467800/html/wp-content/themes/montreal/inc/framework/metaboxes.php on line 734”
Looks like your require_once is now looking in the wrong place, you might want to replace your changes with a fresh version from your theme forest account.
in /inc/framework/metaboxes.php just do a search for ‘gallery’ each of the gallery inputs are called like this;
'name' => __('Gallery Image 8', 'montreal'),
'desc' => __('Upload an image or enter an URL.', 'montreal'),
'id' => $prefix . 'gallery8',
'type' => 'file',
'save_id' => false, // save ID using true
'allow' => array( 'url', 'attachment' ) // limit to just attachments with array( 'attachment' )
Just remember to keep sequentially numbering the gallery id from 8.
The comment above isn’t offensive, just a HUGE peice of code which will clog up the comments.

hello great template
how do i quit in the home the list note and the quotes? I’m using your content for example
I’m not 100% sure I understand the question, would you like to post a URL and a screenshot of what you’re asking to my support site;
Hi, I love the look of the form in your template but are looking for some functionality that I have using RSForm Pro for our Joomla! sites:
- Multiple forms
- Standard mail with an attachment (pdf for instance)
- Checkboxes, date fields.
What Wordpress plugin do you reccommend or will you add this functionality to this template?
Well the mot widely used form plugin in Wordpress is ‘Contact Form 7’—there’s loads of extensions for it as well, so check it out.
How about Gravity forms. When I use that, will the forms have the Montreal look when I put them on the website adn I don’t do any styling in Gravity forms itself?
I cannot ensure compatibility with external plugins, with that in mind, Montreal is likely to work fine with Gravity Forms, though you may need to work together some of the styling yourself depending on how the CSS for Gravity Forms takes place.
I cannot get the Home page slider(s) images to rotate – I just get a small rotating deathwheel.
Also, I really do not understand why there is no changelog provided – please do us the courtesy of either providing one, when an update takes place, or perhaps, if I have missed it (I clicked on your changelog buttons and nothing is provided) you could perhaps place access to the changelog in an easy place to find. Thanks. And please let me know why the home page does not accept and show the slides (I used the same ones you provided in your demo)
Hey there, please see your other comment for help, cheers!
I also downloaded the newest version 1.2.4 – again, no changelog info at all that I can see. Do we somehow have to upload / overwrite the whole site? Will that kill any modifications we have done so far? Please advise.
Fair enough, I should keep the change-log up to date. As far as your site goes, if you’ve made modifications to the theme files then yes, the auto-update will overwrite all your modifications, as far as manually updating, you’l need to go file by file.
If you’re having trouble with the homepage slideshow then grab page-home.php from 1.2.4—page-home.php in 1.2.3 was broken sadly and had been missed by the ThemeForest review staff.
If you want me to take a look at your homepage leave a ticket at;
I’m thinking about purchasing this theme… but I need to know if it’s possible to upload more than one single image to each individual product pages.
Montreal doesn’t hav product support, but I guess you mean ‘portfolio’ pages?
If so here’s a link to a ‘gallery portfolio’ example;
Great theme but I have a question, my portfolio stripe isn’t looking like the demo and I was wondering if you can help me. It doesn’t merge together and I have only 3 items and it moves underneath instead of being on one line. Here is the link to my site http://www.321activate.com/portfolio/
Hey there, thanks
/portfolio is actually reserved for the portfolio archive so you’ll need to change the URL of your published portfolio-stripe page to something different to this for the theme to load in the portfolio-stripe detailing
Also, for the portfolio stripe, you don’t use ‘the featured image’, instead use the ‘portfolio stripe image’ upload box I’ve added for you underneath the Wordpress post editor.
Finally I recommend at least 10 items for the portfolio-stripe template so it can work at its best I’m sure you’ve enough content to fill that requirement but I just wanted to make it clear for you
If you need any other help setting up your theme, leave a ticket at;
I’ve just purchased your template, but Wordpress says that the file “style.css” is missing so uploading the file has not worked. Could you help me by indicating me how I can solve this ? How come that file is missing ? Thanks for your answer !
The file isn’t missing, you’re just uploading the wrong folder
When you download from theme forest you only get a .zip <- do not install this. Instead unzip the first .zip you downloaded. Inside is all your goodies, documentation, HTML version and another .zip called montrealWPTheme.zip <- this is your installable wordpress theme. So install montrealWPTheme.zip and you’re good to go
Thank you very much, it works now ! I’m sure I am now going to enjoy working on it
Cheers from Paris !
The theme demo highlights the theme’s capabilities and overall design elements and structure. If you don’t see it in the demo, you should take it that the function doesn’t exist in the theme.
With that in mind you’ll need to add the elements you describe in manually, either with a plugin or custom development. If that flash element allows links then you’ll be able to link to wherever you want.
I hope this helps answer your questions a little, thanks for your interest.
I just purchased the montreal theme. I like it a lot, but my menu is looking different than the demo.
Can you help me with this?
You need to set some menu’s up in the WordPress menu editor – “Appearance” => “Menus”.
Check out the ‘navigation’ section of your included documentation for further, in-depth details on this
Thank you. It works awesome. Just got one thing, I can’t get the googlemaps working on the contact page. Couldn’t find it in the doc’s.
Your GoogleMaps isn’t working as you haven’t entered an address yet! When you are editing your contact page, you’ll see an address input underneath the WP Editor for google maps, here’s a screenshot;
great template and great support , how can i align the widgets that i place on the footer, I leave the image here so you have a reference http://prypchan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Screen-shot-2013-03-29-at-1.03.42-PM.png
thank you very much
Please leave a ticket at;
and I’ll show you how to change your footer from 4 to 3 columns
When I use the blog-list type page, it shows all the posts of all the categories. Is it possible to only show posts from a certain category?
Yes, you’ll need to modify the main query in page-blog-list.php to achieve this, here’s some WordPress documentation that will help you make that change;
Superb! Did it. Real easy, Thanks again and again!
hi one more question
1. – I need to change the background color of the portfolio, without changing the background color of the footer
And I’ll see what we can do, if you could give me a link to your site and exact details of what you’re trying to achieve that would be even better.
Just came across your Sites and Talents… AMAZING!!
Thank you so much !
first of all thx alot for this amazing theme!!! One question – is it possible to change the content of the portfolio section on home page to a clean text area or link a normal page to this section? I want to put the website welcome text in this section.
The demo shows the default behaviour of the theme, if you want to modify this then you need to modify the contents of page-home.php it should be rather easy if you know what you’re looking at.
I hope this helps
This works – big THX!!!
hello in the language folder the file is not included. po, where I can get?
Please open a ticket at http://tommusrhodus.ticksy.com and I’ll send it straight over.
I’ll also update Montreal in an hour or so to add this back in for any other buyers, it will probably take 24 hours to go live.
For your information:
ThemeForest have just accepted the update of Montreal with the .po in place, feel free to re-download the theme from your ‘Downloads’ section and there’ll be a .po in there waiting for you
Apologies in advance for the basic question. I am a novice programmer and new to wordpress. How do I install the updated version without losing my site?
If you’ve not made any theme changes (to the code) then just head to the updates section of your wordpress dashboard and click update.
If you have made code changes then don’t bother, this was an extremely minor update mainly to add in the .po translation file I’d left out by accident.
For anyone who is thinking about buying this theme, it is well worth it.
I BARELY know coding, but this site is easy to work with and has great documentation. Even modifying the .php files comes simple enough to where you do not need Dreamweaver or other programs to modify.
This is THE most user friendly theme that has the most gallery and portfolio options that I have ever seen. I could use this as a base for various designs with all of the possibilities.
I have been working with Wordpress themes for about a year and have NEVER had such great customer service. TommusRhodus definitely goes above and beyond to help if needed and he is super pleasant and timely with his responses, even over the Holidays. He doesn’t give short answers, but explains how things work even when he doesn’t have to. I wish this man the best at anything and I don’t even know the guy.
I have even gone so far to say that I will only be buying themes from him from this point on. I am still waiting on a response from another site I am doing with a separate theme and it has almost been one month. ( Not to mention other problems that I have had with other designers. )
Thank you so much, I’m glad you’re happy with the theme
