Was looking at using this theme for a custom search site (will remove some of the scrollable text), using Google customized search. Does the theme support use of a ‘search results’ display? And, can I easily insert in a column (say a slim column on the right) to insert Google ads?

Thanks, and great work!

Heya Everyone!

Just a heads up that I’ll be pretty busy with http://webdesign.tutsplus.com for another couple months. I’ll be checking back here as often as humanly possible, but keep in mind that some weeks that’ll be just once or twice a week. Thanks for being understanding – I promise I’ll be around as much as I can to help with any customizations!

Cheers! Brandon

I feel like I’m missing something obvious – how do I increase the amount of time a user is kept on a given ‘slide’ so they can read the description? I see nothing in the XML or documentation? I can see how to adjust the delay in the animation itself, but not to keep the animation speed the same and give the user time to read the description.


Hey First of all i liked very much your web design Before purchase it – I was wondering if i can divide the portfolio segment in several categories also i wanted to know which kind of files can i insert inside the portfolio squares

Thanks Beni

I really don’t know what else to do so I’m going to lay it all out here. I purchased this product two months ago and have been unable to receive technical support. I’ve tried posting here and going to the Make Design, Not War support page, spent the time to register and verify (but the product I purchased – THIS PRODUCT isn’t even in the pull down menu so my purchase code is rendered useless). I tried the Wordpress theme in the pull down using my code, but that didn’t work either.

HOW DO I GET SUPPORT FOR THIS PRODUCT WHICH I ALREADY PURCHASED OVER TWO MONTHS AGO ?! It’s useless to me without addressing the issues I need addressed.

Epicera I need you to contact me to remedy my issue. I’d also like to know how to partake in the support forum (somehow convince your system to accept that I purchased a product and have a valid code).

Bezadesign, your question is one of two that I have. So if I find out anything I’ll let you know.

I want to buy your template for my new project. Would it be easy to add this in the background so I can play videos behind the site?



This theme does not work properly with IE9 (left menu and

tags are unreadable).

Update please !

This theme does not work properly with IE9 (left menu and h1 tags are unreadable).

Update please !

This theme doesn’t seem to work on Safari 5.0.5 either.

Hi, I found in the “index.html”, there are two lines in the HTML file, which is:

script type=”text/javascript” src=”../library/scripts/cufon-yui.js” /script


script type=”text/javascript” src=”../library/scripts/avenir.font.js” /script

Remove either one, or remove both above two lines, this template’s navigation area seems to work in IE 9 .

But it seems have other problem, hopes the author to fix them as soon as possible.

The theme stopped working in Chrome. I was a happy user of this theme but it seems it’s got some problems with some new browsers. I hope that you can release an update soon.

Heey, nice template! The sliding effect does not seem to work in Google Chrome. Can you help me?


This is was the fix that I used. Thanks to beaner!


Open library/scripts/shapeshifter.js and delete this:

$('a[href*=#]').click(function() {
   if (location.pathname.replace(/\//,'')  this.pathname.replace(/\//,'')
   && location.hostname  this.hostname) {
     var $target = $(this.hash);
     $target = $target.length && $target
     || $('[name=' + this.hash.slice(1) +']');
     if ($target.length) {
       var targetOffset = $target.offset().top - 30;
       .animate({scrollTop: targetOffset}, 750);
      return false;

then download this


and place it in library/scripts/ then call it in the index.html file after

<script src="library/scripts/shapeshifter.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

as in:

<script src="library/scripts/smooth.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

you should be good to go.

sorry, tried to delete this comment but couldn’t. see above.

I bought the wrong one! I got the HTML version when I meant to purchase the WP theme. Anything I can do to remedy this??



Hi Generalzod – Unfortunately I don’t have any control over that kind of stuff… Try emailing support though and see if they can’t help out. Thanks!


Thanks jaymee34 for posting the fix. It worked!!

thanks pikanoko your fix for IE9 worked perfectly :)
