hello! First of all, thank you very much for this awesome theme.

I’m very happy with it, I’m a 3D artist and I just need some visual features currently included in this theme, I did some tweaking by css but everything works great.

As you know, we usually need a lot of visual content to showcase our projects, and this theme is perfect for that, although I’m only missing one feature, it would be awesome to display the feature image gif, as I’m showing it in my Orc project (fourth on the list) https://davidvercher.es/STRATO-apps/wordpress_02/ , but it would be better if the gif played on hover.

I know that the function image is an internal function of wordpress, but I am wondering if it is possible to do it by looking for a workaround.

Thanks in advance, DV

Hello, thank you for your message. Unfortunately the theme doesn’t have this option (I did it in the other themes) but I think I can add it in the future updates, just need some time.

thanks a lot for your reply!! it would be a great feature :)

Hi, I created video portfolio at https://potograf.si/video-portfolio/, but when I click on the image it opens project in new page instead of pop up like on your demo at https://pinecone.mallinidesign.com/video-portfolio/. How can I replicate your video portfolio? I followed instruction video on youtube. Can I use your theme for onepager website? At the beginning for video portfolio, when you scroll down for contact and about me section? Thank you, best, Peter

Hello, the first switcher on your your screenshot is “Open in Lightbox” which should be turned on and third field is “Video URL for Lightbox”.

About afterwards text I think it’s not possible with options, some files have to be edited, you can send me admin access to support email and I will take a look.

I bought theme through subscription on envato elements. Can you provide me your support email please?

I’m sorry but Envato doesn’t let to provide support for Elements users, please take a look tutorial videos, they might help you, also the theme documentation.

Is there a way to create a direct link to a filtered portfolio page?

For example: mysite.com/portfolio/?filter=marketing

I would assume this would open the portfolio page with the filter set to marketing and just showing those items but it always loads the default filter.

Hello, thank you for your message. Unfortunately it’s not possible to make with filter variable in URL but you can create a portfolio page with selected Marketing category (in “categories” tab of the page settings)

Hi Mallini! I took this Theme over at Elements.Envato for a Webproject and wanted to change the Colors in Theme Options. Unfortunately there is no possibility to change the Colors in Hex Format. Is there a way I can override it? Thanks!

Hello, I purchased your theme some time ago and I love the clean look. However, today I tried to install the latest version (i had version 3.1.1) and when I activated the new version my site would not load (fatal error). I reinstalled v3.1.1 to save my site but I would like to install the update for woocommerce support. Can you tell me what happened and what I could do? Thank you!

Hello, thank you for your message. Please use support email for faster help.

Do you remember what fatal error you saw? Have you tried to update the theme to version 5+?

Hello, I got it to work now by first installing the plugins and then updating the theme to version 5.

Glad to know it’s okay now, you can write me directly to support email and send admin access if needed, I will fix bugs as soon as possible.

hello i would like to purchase the theme, but i have a question can i put the content on bottom of the portfolio featured image

It depends on how many content you need and what template you use, for example in Portfolio 4 columns you can’t add much text inder featured image. Perhaps it needs deep theme customization.

portfolio full-width i just need the title to be under the image that’s all i need is it possible?

Hello, it needs grid midification and deep theme customization, it’s not possible by default or with Custom CSS

Hello I would like to know if it’s possible to show always the footer, and not having the footer hidden.

Hello, thank you for your question.

Yes, please open Theme Options > General – and turn on “Super footer always open” switcher

Hi mallini,

I’m having some trouble with my menu navigation, the menu is visible but the links are unresponsive. Ive tried everything, the forums say that it might be a theme problem. I think its important to note that I haven’t updated in three years… SOS

Hello, thank you for your message.

First of all try to disable all plugins, keep only Portfolio Installer and Options Tree then check again. Also I recommend to update the theme with the latest one in Themeforest > Downloads.

hello, how can i remove to top scroll?

Hello, thank you for your question.

Please add this code to Theme Options > Custom CSS:

.to-top.cd-is-visible {
    display: none;

Hello, I got your theme for free on ENVATO newsletter a while back. I’d like to update the theme to get the PHP 7 compatibility. How can I get the latest version of the theme? Many thanks Best

Hello, thank you for your question.

I’m not sure about free version but you can take a look in Themeforest > Downloads section, if you have the latest version of Pinecone there.

Hi. I am thinking about buying this theme but I would like to know more details about the video portfolio. I want to use it mainly for that, and I would like to know if I can add headings in between the videos or video blocks so I can organice them better. If so, do you have an example? Also, can all the video thumbnails be the same size? I can see there are different sizes on each videos. Thank you.

Great. And can I use the drop down menu and filter for the same sub categories? I mean can I put a filter for music video and a drop down menu for music video also?

Yes you can use them together, the difference will be only in URL field

Ok, thank you for your support

Hello. I bought your motives and I am very happy. However, I have a problem. Gallery preview images and other galleries display the gallery name followed by the filter name. In my case they are the same so I would like it not to display the filter name. Unfortunately I can’t turn it off in the options. Can you help me turn it off using CSS?

Link to my page where you can see the problem: https://pastebin.com/0JDwKpTi

Hovering over the picture appears: Floral 27 “Floral 27”

Hello, thank you for your question.

Yes you can add this code to Theme Option > Custom CSS, but it will turn off filter name for all items:

.item-description span { display: none; }

Hi, I’m trying to change the font style from Typography and Colors, but I’m not able to see any Google fonts from the drop down. How could I add Google font in Theme Options? Thank you.

Hello, thank you for your message.

Please update theme to the last one, prehaps there is some bug in google API.

About filters, I can’t find filters on the page, please check if it turned on in page settings.

Hi Mallini, I turned the filters on already. Please take a look. They are not working.

Hello, yeah perhaps there is some bug, could you please update theme to the latest version and check ahain? You can find it in ThemeForest > Downloads page.

I have the same issue as gneto and my theme was also downloaded as month’s free item, version 3.0. I didn’t try to update to php 7, but i receive a message to update php. Too bad that Themeforest doesn’t allow updates for free items. You did a great work! Congratulations!

Hello, can you give me your email address?


I downloaded your theme 2 years ago as a month’s free item. I never used but I would like to try it. Will I have compatibility problems, are updates available?

Thank you

Hello, thank you for your message.

The last update of Pinecone theme was month ago, I can’t say if your version has any problems but Themeforest is not aloow updates for free items. You can try to install and check your version.

Hi, thenk you for your reply

It didn’t work, plugins installation with php 7 failed, I switched to php 5.6 and it went throught (but not all of them), then back to php 7, it could not also get from the repositories.

It doesn’t really matter,


could you please give me your email or send me empty message to my support email?

Hello there – am I able to change the portfolio sorting to make the oldest item be first? Sometimes these themes like the newest portfolio item first but it is not what I need. Care to assist? Thanks!

Hello, thank you for your message.

There are only sorting by Date, Title, Slug and Random in Theme options, all of them are default, do for Date – newest is first. The easiest way to sort is changing Publush date for items, of course if you have not a lot of items. Second is editing files in theme – content-masonry.php and functions.php to add there option wirh Ascending order.

Yah thats what I figured! Thank you for your reply. Is there anyway you can just give me some line numbers of interest? Or would I have to completely add a new custom item to the list.

Yes you can open ‘content-masonry.php’ in wp-content/themes/pinecone. Depending on your version it might be line 25 and 42:

'orderby' => $portfolio_sorting,

here default parameter is ‘date’, next line you can add:

'order'   => 'DESC',

another variant is ‘ASC’, here is wordpress guide – https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query

Same thing in ‘functions.php’ on line 383 in my version:

'orderby' => $portfolio_sorting,

Adding ‘order’ in all 3 cases will give you default sorting for all types of portfolio.

Does the theme support Wordpress 5.0 with the new Gutenberg Editor?

Hello, thank you for your message.

It doesnt support Gutenberg yet and I haven’t tested it with WP 5 because it’s not officially released.

Hi again, first.. thanks for the Gutenberg editor support. Now I have another question, is WPML supported?

Hello, unfortunately they don’t have free version and I can’t test it but as I can see from documentation there is nothing wrong and conflict with the theme. If you want you can buy the theme and I will make you refund if something wrong with plugin support.

Hello, how do i make to allow shortcode on “Text” in the page builder?

Hello, unfortunately the template doesn’t support any shortcodes. You can try Visual Composer or other plugins.

Hi Mallini, loved your template! I am having an issue on displaying portfolio images on the homepage. I can see all properly from the admin panel though. Here is the website atolyeseher.com

The console gives the following error:

JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 1.4.1 connect.facebook.net/en_US/fbevents.js:1 Failed to load resource: net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT www.google.com/ads/ga-audiences?v=1&aip=1&t=sr&_r=4&tid=UA-116690844-1&cid=682013367.1535967960&jid=1354449491&_v=j68&z=1685899688:1 Failed to load resource: net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT selectFx.js:311 Uncaught ReferenceError: classie is not defined at SelectFx._isOpen (selectFx.js:311) at SelectFx._toggleSelect (selectFx.js:250) at HTMLSpanElement.<anonymous> (selectFx.js:159) 3selectFx.js:311 Uncaught ReferenceError: classie is not defined at SelectFx._isOpen (selectFx.js:311) at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (selectFx.js:175)

Thanks in advance.


Hello, thank you for your message.

There might be some Java script bug in plugins which you use, you can disable all and keep only Portfolio installer and Options tree then check again.

Also you can try reinstall theme because some files may be damaged, and I recommend you to update theme to latest version.

Thanks a lot, it worked now!
