I have a question about retina images.

Everything looks awesome until – in the portfolio – you view the larger image. It’s not displaying a retina image. When you right click to save it’s says the image is:

image-813×505.png

Is there something I’m missing? Should it be a jpg?

Thanks in advance. Thom

Hi OnionEye. One of my new clients has an old website with this theme installed in WP, but it’s too old (I haven’t seen the code yet, but I think it’s from 2011) and it’s not responsive. So he needs to redesign it’s look&feel with responsive design or to design an entire site from the beginning. So I have to evaluate which solution is better and less expensive. My question is: if I purchase this new version and customize the look&feel, can I migrate the contents from that old version to this new one? or I have to enter the whole content (posts, images, sections) manually? (By the way, I’m a web developer but with few experience in WP) Thanks in advance for your advice.

Regards, Fabian.

Hi Fabian,

that sounds like one of the first versions of Yin & Yang, if not the first one. The theme has surely changed since then because it has been almost five years now since its inception. However, you shouldn’t need to re-enter the whole content again. The content should be intact the way it is when updating to the latest version, but you will have to re-select (not re-upload though) the images selected in the portfolio posts, re-select the page templates, and re-enter the options from the old options panel to the new standard WordPress customizer panel. This shouldn’t take you a long time at all, if the portfolio is not seriously big.

Sincerely,

OnionEye

Ok OnionEye. Fortunately the portfolio isn’t too big. The last question: do I have to delete the old theme and add the new one? or is there another way to update it? Take into consideration that the old theme is definitively old (not responsive). Besides, some things of the look&feel is customized just as logo, background color, fonts. Is there any link or doc to show me this? Thank you again for your support.

Regards, Fabian.

Hi Fabian,

to answer your latest questions:

1) Yes, you would have to remove or overwrite the old theme with the new one. You could do this via FTP or the WordPress admin panel.

2) Not sure what you mean by a link or doc? If the theme has been customized through code, then you would have to take the custom code and reapply it to the new theme. The code base in the new theme is different though, so you would probably have to change it a bit, for it to work properly.

Hello, is it possible to add a slideshow in your theme to scroll through the images within the portfolio? Cyclone Slider I tried, but it did not work … Here is my site so you can see what I mean: http://lafabriquegraphique.fr Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

you can try the Meta Slider, to see if that plugin will work for you. However, I am not sure what exactly you are trying to achieve, so you might want to open a ticket at https://onioneye.ticksy.com, and my support staff will try to help you out.

By the way, you might want to know that this section is only used for pre-purchases. The support is fully handled on the given forum link.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. :)

Hi I already have in my WP version 4.4 the Ying & Yang theme version 1.1 can I update with the last one? we can loose some data?

please let me know,

thanks a lot!

Hi there,

that version is several years old and thus very outdated. However, none of your content will be lost (posts, images etc.), but you will have to re-select some things, such as the portfolio page, some options in the theme’s options panel, and the pointers to your individual images inside the portfolio posts, which should be a much quicker process in the latest version, given the improvements made to the theme.

If you have any other questions related to the theme, please open a ticket on the official forum for all OnionEye themes, at https://onioneye.ticksy.com, where all after-purchase support is provided.

Have a great festive season,

OnionEye :)

Hello,

Can you fix the demo links of your webpage? I cant see it, it is not working. Thanks in advance

Hi there,

I, as well as many other authors who are using asmallorange’s VPS service, have suffered from a major malfunction on their part, causing our servers to be down for a long time. However, the issue should be fixed now, so you can proceed with checking out the demo site.

Thank you for your patience! :)

Have a happy festive season,

Where do I find the files for the newest version of the theme?

Hi there,

please go to your “downloads” page, where you initially downloaded the theme, and grab the latest version from there.

Sincerely,

OnionEye

Hello, really nice theme, is it possible to put logo and menu fixed to the left side ?

Hi there,

glad you like the theme. Thank you for your interest in it!

As far as your question goes, Yin & Yang is not made with a fixed sidebar, so some customization work would be needed to make this happen. It can definitely be done though by a coder.

Have fun working with the theme, if you end up buying it!

Sincerely,

OnionEye

Hi, Your theme is great and I am excited to buy and use this, but before installing this theme, I have a question.

can I make a grid layout like http://hamyarwp.com/tutorials ?

Awaiting your reply.

thanks again

Hi there,

glad you find the theme great. Thank you for your interest in it!

The grid layout on the given website is almost identical to Yin & Yang’s one (4 columns, similar image dimensions), so yes, it’s certainly possible to have it in your website straight out of the box. However, the grid on the tutorial website has some additional information below the thumbnails, and I am not sure if you are looking to incorporate that into your website as well?

Greetings.

We are looking to build a designer portal (designer to signup and to publish their portfolio by themselves, just like Behance)

Will this template suitable for our purpose?

Thanks.

Hi there,

thank you for your interest in the theme!

To be honest, I am not sure if such a theme exists on ThemeForest, or if a theme of that complexity would be suitable for WordPress in the first place.

My best advice would be to ask your question on the forums, where a lot of developers frequent: https://forums.envato.com/.

Good luck!

Sincerely,

OnionEye

Hi there. A quick question: is it possible to have a slider with videos and images as a portfolio item?

Hi there,

you can have videos alongside images in a single portfolio item, but not both of them in a single slider, I’m afraid. However, this should be possible with the use of one of the slider plugins, available in the WordPress’ plugin repository: https://wordpress.org/plugins/

I am having an issue with the image quality (Not sure if this is a wordpress issue or a theme issue). Everything is sharp and clear in photoshop but once uploaded to wordpress and put into the portfolio, the images look fuzzy to me? Is there a way to fix this? I have saved the files every different way I can think of (including saving for web) but nothing is working. They are okay quality but not as sharp as I had hoped.

This is my website if you want to take a look: www.dnannis.com

P.S. Absolutely loving this theme! Great job! :)

Hi there, I am really interested to buy the theme, but at the moment I can’t find a feature that integrates Social Media Sharing of individual portfolio project. Can you please confirm if there is any such feature that comes with the template? Thank you

Hi there,

thank you for your interest in the theme!

The feature you mentioned doesn’t come built into the theme, but one user managed to implement it successfully. You can find the solution here (first comment from the top): https://themeforest.net/item/yin-yang-modern-responsive-clean-creative-wordpress-portfolio-theme-powered-by-ajax/634395/comments?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=lllaria&from_buyers_and_authors_only=0&order_by=relevance

Enjoy working with the theme, if you end up buying it! :)

Hi there, I would like to update both my WP and Ying Yang theme. I still like it and wanna keep it. I am having a WordPress 4.3.1 and Yin & YangVersion: 1.2.1 installed. What is the easiest and best way to update this? I have heard that I have to use a child theme .. is that correct? What else, update WP first of all or the other way around? Any other tipps? Thanks

Hello? Got my message here? I also wanted to ask if the photo sizes changed. I think with the old version something around 700px was set right? So did you increase the pic sizes? Thanks

Hi there,

my apologies for the delayed response. I am currently attending two conferences in two different countries, so won’t be online for another week or so.

To answer your questions:

1) You only have to use a child theme if you are customizing the theme’s code, but not for updating.

2) If I were you, I would update WordPress immediately if you are not running some old plugins.

3) The sizes of the pictures inside the portfolio have been changed from 700 to 813px.

By the way, please have in mind that you bought the theme quite some time ago and that your support package has since expired. To get any further support with your update you would have to purchase a support extension for the yin and yang theme on your downloads page.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Sincerely,

Hello. For some reason when I click on a portfolio item the portfolio opens up but it is above the view of the content of the page. I have to scroll up to get to see the portfolio item. Can you tell me why this may be happening? It no longer pushes down the other thumbnails. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. It is happening on Chrome on Mac. It is also happening on Chrome mobile as well. It does not seem to happen on Safari.

If you can get back to me in the next day I would greatly appreciate it as I have a very important presentation I need to make with the site. Thanks again.

I am sorry to be a bother but I have a huge presentation with the website on Wednesday. Do you know how I may fix this issue? Thank you.

I did notice that it was working correctly IF I first choose a filter and THEN click a portfolio item. But it does not work correctly if ALL is active. I am desperate for any help you can give me. Thank you.

Hi,

We got your OMM theme a couple years ago and liked it. Now we are looking at YIN YANG. A couple pre purchase questions:

1. Can we do small adjustments to the header layout? Move the logo to the left and the navbar to the right?

2. For the portfolio enlargements, can we hide the sidebar info and just keep the navigation arrows?

3. When creating links to the portfolio page, is it possible to load specific filters instead of ALL ?

4. How easy would it be to integrate woocommerce?

5. Do you also sell plugins and would you have a plugin of just this portfolio?

Thank you

Any time! :)
