hey. looks great!
3 pre-buying questions:
1) can videos be part of the (slided) galleries?
... with the smooth slider (e.g.)
2) are there ways to show image titles/descriptions (like it seems the case in full screen)
3) can the gallery-thumbnail-line there be faded out?
thanks + looking forward to the options here!
Hi, thanks for taking an interest in the theme!
thanks, I see. –
1) was looking for an alternative to Touchfolio (which you are surely aware of), and your theme looks like being on top in some respects; but then Touchfolio can do the Video (in some way).
– so thanks, and I will watch the development (hoping it´s not too late to jump ships, in case)
2) ok, understood also.
3) in the demo there is a thumbnail-line of all images of the album (only saw that with “smooth slider” template); this is generally very nice! I wonder whether this can be made to fade (or turned off), as it eventually draws away attention from the main-images themselves.
If it will be requested by many customers we will consider its implementation.
It easily can be removed. This could be solved in support.
A couple of questions..
1. Can you set a galleri as front page?
2. Is there any way that you can specify which pages the sidebar is showing on?
Hi, thank you for the purchasing!
I can´t find the option for using a gallery as a front page. Only pages and posts. can you give me some instructions?
To set up the homepage you must create a new page, you can do so by navigating to Pages > Add New. You can give this page a title. Choose between any page template you want from the Page Attributes section and click “Publish”.
Once you have created your new page, navigate to Settings > Reading and configure the “Front Page Displays” setting. Select the static page option and choose the page you just created as your front page.
Hi there, great looking theme. Just wondering is there a way you can put a 5 or 10 pixel gutter between all the images on the home page? Cheers.
Hi, yes. See this page http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/portfolio-fixed-width/
Thanks for your reply but I was wondering if you could add a simple 10px gap between each item on the main portfolio page, rather than have the title and category show up bellow the image. I like the look of the main page but would possibly like a 5 or 10 px space between each image. Can this be done simply in the theme options or would I need to adjust the css..? Thanks.
Hi yes this is possible. Please see the demo page http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/portfolio-fixed-width/
Great stuff, thank you for that. One last quick question. On the http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/portfolio-fixed-width/ page you have a title and a filtering system below it. I can’t seem to show the filter on my portfolio page even though I have the option to show filter checked? I’m using the wixed-width 4 column template, same as your demo page.Any ideas? Cheers
Hi, the update is still in queue. It should be approved soon.
How can I changed it too fixed width thumbs on home page as in demo?
You will need to select “Portfolio (Fixed Width)” from the page attributes.
Also, how can I add the demo file? Thanks.
Hi, thanks for the purchasing!
Please read the documentation that comes with the theme, any common questions can be answered within the documentation.
Can we change hover colours on Portfolio List ? Have only one colour (like Gallery Page) ?
Furthermore can we have the thumbnails in black and white ?
And i saw that video don’t work, but can we put a image thumbnail on the main portfolio page, and a video on the project page ?
Thanks a lot
Hi, yes you can easily choose any color you wish via color picker from admin area. Yes you can have the thumbnails in black and white.
Which video doesn’t work? Sorry didn’t quite understand your question.
Thanks a lot ! No problem for the video, i was wrong.
Thanks for this wonderful Theme. Really enjoy it.
Is there a way to translate the theme? Especially the Blog list template.
Hi, thank you for purchasing!
The theme is 100% translation ready. We have provided .po/.mo files which contains all of the theme texts in English. Try Codestyling Localization plugin to translate the theme.
Thanks for the fast support.
I’ve tried codestyling localization but i get this error:
PHP runtime error reporting detected !
Reason: some executed PHP code is not written proper | Originator: inconnu (probably by Theme or Plugin)
Below listed error reports has been traced and removed during page creation:
DEPRECATED Error:  Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated /home/medion/public_html/wp-content/themes/skylab/option-tree/includes/ot-meta-box-api.php on line 279
Additionnaly, i got this message:
Warning: The actual loaded translation content contains mixed textdomains and is not pure translateable within one textdomain.
It seems, that there is code contained extracted out of other plugins, themes or widgets and used by copy & paste inside some source files.
The affected unknown textdomains are: option-tree
I’ve got other plugin that’s the translation with Codestyling localization works.
Don’t pay attention to the warning, just select “mega” textdomain to translate the theme. Everything should works just fine but if not feel free to contact us.
Hi, i’ve selected Mega, traduct some words and generate the .mo files. I’ve got a file fr_CA in the language folder, but nothing is happening. Contact Form 7 translation works well.
Hi, please email us your URL, username and password for your site via our profile page and we will take a look.
Done. Have you received it?
Yep, have answered your question.
Thanks a lot for you fast reply. Everything works fine. It was an error in the wp-config file.
I’ve tried to modify the .po and .mo files in skylab/languages but nothing happens.
Try Codestyling Localization plugin to translate the theme.
I finally bought the template last night.
I work locally. After a difficult beginning I finally managed to install and to understand how to operate.
But I have some problems
— When I use the” Portfolio (FIxed Width )” all is perfect when I use 3 columns but when I use 4 columns there is a bug when I reload the portfolio on my computer. Some thumbnails are white.
— I would like a WHITE background Fixed for all the site something like “Light Paper Fibers” but I can’t find when to put a WHITE background.
In the CSS ?
When I click the “STYLES” buttons on my preview site there is a message error >>> “The requested URL /skylab/wp-content/themes/skylab/css/switcher.php was not found on this server ”
Impossible to change it
— The sizes of the thumbnails is ok, but what is the size of the WIDTH for images in portfolio. The same Width that the text.
Example >>> The work N°35 >>> Journal — Street Style Photography.
— Where are the IMPORTS images in the Template to see the sizes of the different pictures ?
— PORTFOLIO (VISIBLE TITTLES) & PORTFOLIO (Fixed Width are an update ?
I don’t have this in my preview site. Maybe no bug with these Portfolios.
If YES how to import these 2 Portfolios and not break my work on the template ?
Thanks for reply
1 — I can’t I work with Localhost – It’s simple with 4 columns the grid move to the right in the second and fourth line so there are white empty
2— OK Simple in fact
3 — Simple just the width of the column text in the portfolio as the work N.35 in your thumbnails I want a picture with the same width that the texts. It will be more clean
4 — OK
5 — It’s not my question I have “Portfolio (Fixed Width)”
Is there a update since my purchase ??
I don’t have “Portfolio (Visible Tittles)”
How to update my template I don’t want to begin my work one more time
Seems I’m not the only one to have a problem with the update and the PORTFOLIO VISIBLE TITTLES and the new PORTFOLIO FIXED WIDTH with SUB MENU
Where do I find the ‘Portfolio (Visible Titles)’ page template like in the demo?
Hi Kris, thank you for the purchasing!
Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Portfolio Settings where you can find “Portfolio Title and Meta Position” option.
I’m in love with this theme!!
BUT two problems:
a) in Firefox (at least—maybe other browsers), my logo extends beyond the lefthand sidebar while, in Chrome, it looks fine (carlaboecklin.com/weddings). Can this be fixed?
b) on my 27’’ Mac, the Fancybox Gallery displays perfectly both in Chrome & Firefox—it’s simply awesome. However, on smaller screens (I’ve tried multiple laptops), it doesn’t display correctly at all. Can this be fixed?
Please let me know! Thanks.
Hi Carla! Thank you for purchasing our theme!
We have fixed the logo. Please contact us via our profile contact form so we can send it the fix to you asap.
Not sure what do you mean by it doesn’t display correctly at all. Can you email a screenshot?
Can we use a link to your site in our theme’s description please? By the way why not use slider instead of masonry gallery?
I LOVE the masonry gallery (that’s the Fancybox, right?). It’s such a unique way to showcase my work & I’m a huge fan! But it shows up on three laptops (on chrome & firefox) as two long columns of images rather than a masonic wall of images. How can I send a screen shot? I’ll see if I can include a screenshot with the profile contact form so you can see what I mean.
I’ll be using the slider for another gallery I’m creating that’s specific to one wedding… but for the general image gallery, I love that ‘wall’ feel.
I’ve just begun building the site (yesterday) so I’ll be uploading more images & finalizing the Pages, but I’d be happy for you to include a link to the site in your theme’s description.
Yes it’s fancyBox. Email us a screenshot via our contact form here http://themeforest.net/user/MegaTheme
I like the update you’ve done to the portfolio (fixed width) but now my thumbnails aren’t showing up. Any idea why and how I can fix this?
Hello, please email us your URL for your site via our profile page and we will take a look.
first I’d like to say what a beautiful theme this is. I’ve finally deicded to get a theme to use rather than trying to continue to build a site from scratch.. but i’m having some issues. I’m not sure what pixel ratio I should size my images for the gallery (full width slider and for the full screen slider)... I noticed my landscape mode images are being slightly croped all the way around and my portrait mode images are being dramatically croped. there’s no info on what the recomended image sizes should be to fit perfectly in the galleries or portfolio options.
Also, as I’m still tryinhg to figure out how to use the theme, I noticed that in Google Crome, none of the galeries are visible, it comes up as a blank default page, even worse on an iphone and tablet as on those devices the theme isn’t rendering at all, and I can’t see any images from the gallerie or porfolio. Is there anymore detailed information about this theme and how to solve any problems with it as I couldn’t find any information specific to the problems in the documentation?
Oh and one more thing…
I just purchased this theme this morning and noticed an update for it already… I downloaded it and tried to install it, but I got a message saying “Desitination folder already exhists… theme install failed”. How do I install the updates?
Please email us your URL for your site via our profile page and we will take a look.
Hi, Thanks for the reply, I just emailed you a link.
I managed to fix the issue with it not rendering in Crome (apparently it was some settings in my browser, had nothing to do with wordpress or the theme) but I’m still trying to figure out the rest of my issues like sizing my images correctly to show the entire image. I sized my landscape mode images at 1920 pixel in width, it seems to be too big as it gets croped when in any of the full screen slider settings for the gallery/portfolio… so if you have advice as to what the max. width should be and also the max. hight for images that are both in Lanscape orinetaion & Portrait Oriantation that would be greatly appreciated.
Also, a couple more questions…
1) in the demo it shows two types of “about” pages.. which template is used for them? I’d like to fix my about me page to look like either one of those?
2) is it possible for me to just load the Demo into my wordpress site and just customize it with my images and text? (i’m wondering if that’s easier!?)
Sorry for all the questions.. I’m so new to this! Seems that wordpress is a bit of a learning curve to me, and allthough the theme defintely makes it easier then trying to build my site from scratch.. I feel like a need a lot of help, adn lots more coffee!
Thank you, I did try the full width and still got a bit of cropping, I think it’s just that my images are too big, no worries, I’ll resize them.
If you have video tutorials for newbies that would be great!
Thanks for the tip, if I can't figure out how to get things working the way i want, I'll try the XML file. oh, I actually did read the documents, but got a little confused on the difference between the gallery and a portfolio styled page. (it's probably just me, I'm more of a visual learner, not to mention this is the first time I'm building a wordpress site and using a theme!)
Hi Kareen! Please read the documentation that comes with the theme, any common questions can be answered within the documentation.
Hello. Thank you for a well designed theme with great attention to details.
1. Can we have a horizontal menu?
2. Can we use e-commerce plugin with this theme?
3. homepage as full screen slider, OR mixed—with a large slider image above grid images (link to blogs and portfolio)?
4. can we have a mix of portfolio and blog posts together in one page?
I’ve only found one thing to question… amazing theme. Just before I purchase, when the browser window is scaled down before tablet size (so you still have the side bar menu), when you hover on thumbnails, the info text that appears on the hover does not always stay contained into that specific thumbnail square and overlaps onto other thumbnails. Is there a way to prevent this?
Thanks! Great work.
Hi, not sure what do you mean. Can you email a screenshot?
Ok sure. Sorry I’m not sure where to find your contact email address…
Email us a screenshot via our contact form here http://themeforest.net/user/MegaTheme
Wow, sorry maybe I’m missing something but in the contact form I’m seeing, there is no way for me to attach or send an image…
Email us your question without a screenshot.
sent. thank you
Strange, I didn’t receive it. Can you email again?
Not possible to have answers for my previous questions ?
Hi, sorry for the late reply. We have answered your previous questions.
Hi, really like your theme. I am thinking of switching from my current HQ theme, but I would like to ask few questions:
1. Can I add captions on slides and link slides. E.g. clicking on a single pic takes you to a gallery which includes that pic – without going to CSS?
Hi, thank you. I looked at that. Is Sandra Lovesco wording the caption? It looks like it works as a link to her website as well, which kind of answers my other question, whether I can link a slide to either internal or external page. Great
1. Related question is: Can I use a combination of larger and smaller fonts on a caption like e.g. you have on this theme? http://demo.themedev.me/?theme=Modern%20Html
or on Ablaze theme in full screen slider: http://themes.spaceheadconcepts.com/?theme=ablaze
2. I am an interior designer. What I wanted to achieve was a page, where home page is a tiled wall representing different projects, etc., Click on a tile and you go to a project page with description.
From there you can either go to next project or
View fullscreen gallery for that particular project. and from there
Either go to next gallery or go back to portfolio.
Will I be able to achieve this with your theme without engaging a developer? Just using a combo of portfolios, galleries, captions and links? Thank you. Best. TM
Hi, sorry for the late reply!
Yes it’s the caption. You can use any text, links, images there.
Just a follow up to my previous emails. I have now purchased this theme and got it all up and running perfectly. Thanks for a great theme, I’m thoroughly enjoying working with it.
For those of you who are asking about image sizes for the portfolio pics. When you are re-sizing them to display in the site I would recommend editing your images so they are no more than 500px tall and they will fit well with the design. It shouldn’t matter about the width at 500px tall they should all fit unless you have a massive panoramic image. Cheers MegaThemes One happy customer here….
If you don’t mind please email us a URL to your site. We would be happy to look at your works.
Hi, when it’s all finished I’d be happy to email you a link Cheers
Great! Waiting for your email.
One last quick question. On the http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/portfolio-fixed-width/ page you have a title and a filtering system below it. I can’t seem to show the filter on my portfolio page even though I have the option to show filter checked? I’m using the wixed-width 4 column template, same as your demo page. Any ideas? Cheers
Ok great, this will address this will it..? Thanks
Sorry didn’t quite understand your question.
Will the update which is in the queue fix the filter which is not showing? Thanks.
Yes the update fix the filter which is not showing. Please stay tuned.
Sweeeeeet… Thanks mate
Thanks for this very very nice theme ! I just have one question : is there a possibility to make the legend of the picture appear below the picture in the “Fullscreen Gallery” or “Magnific popup” or “Single project default slider” portfolio ?
Thanks in advance for your answer,
Do you mean captions of the images?
Sorry, I’m French, I didn’t use the proper term… Yes, I mean captions.
You can use captions in “Fullscreen Gallery” which you can find in the bottom right http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/full-width-of-window-slider/ and you can use titles in “Magnific popup” gallery.
Thanks a lot ! Very very nice work !
