Hello, I’m just planning to buy this theme. Is it possible to make the main page with video playback in the mobile version?


Yes, it’s possible. You can check the demo on your mobile. If you have additional questions ask them before buy. Thanks.

Hello. i want to edit/delete portfolio categories I’ve mistakenly created. How is this possible. Only through code?


Adding Categories via the Dashboard. It’s a default WordPress feature.

Hello, great theme. I’m customizing some of the margins to fit my needs, however – I’m looking for the transition script from the homepage menu. When we click the homepage element, the whole menu-wrapper moves up to a certain position. Since I’ve changed the margins for the other pages, this doesn’t align with the top of them. I could not find it in the style.css which is where I found all of my other needs. Could you please point me in the direction where I can tinker with it?

Try to check jquery.custom.js file.

I wanted to add photo galleries to my portfolio items. However I noticed that the Gurenberg Editor was not available inside the portfolio item. I managed to solve this by installing the “Portfolio Post Type” Plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/portfolio-post-type/

You’re wrong. Gutenberg editor available in the portfolio post type that comes within the theme’s core. Installing third party potrtolio post types can cause issues or will not work as expected. I reccomend you to uninstall this plugin to avoid any issues.

Nice photography themes but no social sharing option included which is really very important.

Thanks. Some people don’t need this feature. In any case you can always use plugins.


Is it possible to add a gallery description to the galleries? So a little text area above the photos?

Thanks for your answer,


Hello Claudio,

Yes, you can add a description to the galleries. ( Screenshot)

perfect! Thank you for your fast reply! Best, Claudio

You’re welcome!

Hi! I have a question regarding color customization on this theme. Is it possible tho change menu color? I would like to use another color rather then that yellow shown on the demo site.


Navigate to Appearance -> Customize. Here you can find all available options. The option you needed call ‘accent color’.

for some reason I can’t “add” a video background. it says – “Have been an error while adding video item.”. I also tried to click “save changes” but it didn’t help as well

Hello, Great theme! I just purchased it. I got the background slider up with no problem but I see very small diagonal lines on the slider image and it makes it not look clear as the images in your demo slider. Is there anti copy layer or something that can be disabled or is it a sizing issue or something?


Thanks for purchasing. :)

You can disable this overlay in the theme settings. Check it please.

Yes I found it in options, thank you. May I ask what is the purpose of the overlay?

Mmmm….I can’t remember why I did it :D

Hi, I purchased this theme some time ago and never really used it until now that i want to get my photography website created, i have one niggle at the moment and that is, i have set my homepage background to link with my flickr account as a slider, although it only seems to display the images on my home pc and no where else, is this a known issue?

Oh and is there a way of making the colour behind the logo i use transparent please?


Did you fill all needed fields? (API key and so on?)

Hi there,

Where can I find a list of the shortcodes?

The example page http://easysite.by/photolio/shortcodes/ shows what you can do with the shortcodes but I can’t find a list how to use them.

Someone asked this question before but the link you gave doesn’t work anymore

I know it’s a while ago that I’ve purchased this awesome theme, but maybe you have a tip how I can solve this?

Thank you very much Reinhard

Forgot to note that the first two messages also show up on the frontend… ;-)

Just bought your lovely theme. I’ve gone through some of the previous comments and they have been very useful. Here are a couple of questions which I’m still needing help with:

1. I would like to adjust the size of the main title headings on each page (make them smaller) as well as to remove the dotted double lines underneath the titles. How to do it? 2. I’m having trouble seeing the background video on the home page (only a play symbol appears). Might this be because of my browser (safari)? I managed to see it on Chrome, although there’s a message: “The YouTube Flash API was officially deprecated on January 27th, 2015.” Do you know which browsers are supported or is it just that I’m missing some plugins? 3. I have also noticed that the pages are very slow to upload – is this usual? Is there anything I can do to make them to upload faster?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for purchasing.

1. You can do it through CSS
2. Could you send me our site address? I’ll take a look (use contact form on my profile page or support page).
3. Usually your site speed depends on your server config, internet/server bandwidth, content (such as big images, videos, etc). When you send me your site address, maybe I’ll give you some recommendations.

ok perfect! not decide yet between this and vernissage Theme, ll let you know as soon as possible! thank you very much to answer so soon!

Hello there Kotofey!

I would like to get ecommerce working on my site. I have installed woocommerce on another one of my websites and it was fairly easy to set up.

But it broke straightaway on photolio. I have tried my best to get it working with this:


I have created a new woocommerce.php file by copying the page.php file, but they suggest using hooks in functions.php and that is beyond my current ability.

The main thing is that the option for background image css disappears so the default slider keeps appearing. Also the “buy” button disappears.

I am wondering if you can provide woocommerce integration? (and for vernissage too)

P.S: it would be really nice if there was an option of applying the default slider to one page only on both of these themes, because as it is now, I have to choose a black background for every single new post to stop that appearing…

Yes I am willing to buy more support if you can help me with this.

Hi there,

Unfortunately this theme is not WooCommerce ready. You need to modify theme files if you want to use it with WooCommerce.

WooCommerce integration is not planned. Sorry.

Don’t know why you have problems. You need to replace the_content(); in the copied page.php to woocommerce_content(); . Then declare WooCommerce support as written in WooCommerce manual. Then you need add CSS styles for WooCommerce elements (if needed).

Ok no problem I will look to another ecommerce solution. Foxycart seems to work (but it is more complicated to add products).

Can you please also help with this also?

It would be really nice if there was an option of applying the default background gallery slider to one page only, because as it is now, I have to choose a black background for every single new post to stop the slideshow from automatically appearing…

What I am saying is that rather than have the slider appear on every page, have it appear on only one page. Because as my two sites based on your themes grow, I have to manually add a black background on every single new blog post & page and this is not as convenient as it could be…

Hi, Enjoying your theme. I emailed about function start_lvl error but was able to resolve after editing Funtions.php. Just a quick questions, my video doesn’t repeat even though it is set to in functions. repeat : ‘always’ Any suggestions?

Hi there,

Sorry for the so late reply. Support was not available last 16 days because I had a vacation in foreign country and I didn’t have the opportunity to access my PC. Sorry for any inconvenience.

If you are still having problems or need my help, please let me know.
