The theme is Widget ready with 3 page templates each with its own column to add widgets. You also have 2 footer sections.

  1. Great.
    Just what I was looking for.
    But I’ll need to make myself a white-gray style.

  2. hi dean,

    thanks for your wonderful wp theme. its really awesome.
    unfortunately i have a little problem with them and i cant find whats the failure.
    i installed the theme and i followed every step from your install guide.

    everything is fine, but the gallery doesnt work.
    i cant see any picture.

    when i post the picture under the category blog, than i can see the picture.

    can you tell me whats the reason for that?
    maybe my settings in the theme options are wrong?
    i dont know… :-(

    the link to my page:
    http://www.fotodesign-le.de

    thanks for your help
    regards
    hendrik

    • Hi Hendrik

      Glad you like it! It doesn’t look like you have added any portfolio posts. On the settings page you must have your category ID’s set incorrectly. Email me your login details and I will take a look.

  3. Does this theme support image captions, same as your new Photospace plugin.

    *I know I should just take the time to install and find out. Apologies for the silly comment.

  4. HI,
    great looking theme. Installed and followed directions, but cant get more than 1 image to appear in the gallery and portfolio sub-categories are not showing. I get a drop down that says “no categories”
    any ideas?

    • Hi Owen

      Can you email me login details and I’ll take a look :)

      • that would be great, where should i email to? the contact email for this site?

          • hi dean.

            as mentioned in numerous comments, this is a beautiful theme, and, after searching for a long time, i’m so glad i found you. owen commented, “cant get more than 1 image to appear in the gallery and portfolio sub-categories are not showing. I get a drop down that says “no categories.” you replied that you would take a look at his page, and, as that’s also happening to me, i wonder if you could publish the result. also, all the gallery image thumbs [extra large thumbs] are appearing in columns below.

            as i read the comments, it seems like maybe there’s supposed to be only one image in each post for them to appear in the gallery [in order to be able to grab the link url in the image upload screen]…is this the case?

            thanks again for a lovely and elegant gallery theme.

            • Hi Sosa

              Nice custom design! Can you email me your login details and I’ll a have a look. dean@thriveweb.com.au

            • You don’t need to insert gallery into the page or create any sub pages. The drop down is created by the categories. Add some more images and see how it goes. Also the hover change needs to be taken out as it doesn’t work well.

              • thanks a lot for being available! i’m confused…i uploaded over 50 images, do i need to create a new post for each one? what if i want them all in the same portfolio?

                thanks again!

                • Yes a new post for each one if you are using the main gallery in the theme.

                • Looks like I missed a clear div. In category.php in the theme line 33 add

                  {code type=html}

                  {/code}

                  • thanks dean! i so appreciate your quick responses — NO ONE else does that!

                    last thing; is there a way to have multi-line captions? i looked in the source code and there’s a div below the image-caption with class “image-desc”; i tried putting a description in the image details, but it’s not appearing there — where is that pulling from?

                  • hi dean,

                    still love your theme! :-)
                    just wondering if you can have 2 separated galleries with this theme — i want a separate gallery for specific clients that is private or password protected. i tried to add a private page with the gallery template, but i’m only seeing the same gallery that is in use for the whole site.

                    if it doesn’t allow 2 galleries at once, would i be able to use the photospace plugin with the photospace theme?

                    thanks a lot!

  5. Hi!

    I’ve just installed this theme and at the begining it worked fine, but then i realized that you used fancy box plugin in your blog seccion. That is pretty cool, so i tried it.

    But after fancy box installation, the gallery has broken and i have no idea to fix it. Then, I delete the plugin, but the gallery is still broken. Any suggestion?

    Here is my broken :_( home page: http://www.ivandefrancisco.com

    Thanks in advance!

  6. Hi.
    I have a problem adding subcategories when i checked the box for porfolio dropdown ? I tried to do everything after installsheme photospace documentation.. nothing happens :)
    and im new to wordpress

    // Best regards Thomas

  7. Is there anyway to have the image title displayed on the home page? Also is it possible to add a lightbox overlay with either caption or post text?

  8. Apple lucky says:

    is the demo link working ?
    could you please show me the demo of this beautiful theme :) ?

    Thanks

  9. HI have followed all you instructions, my gallery is working but when I click on an image I get a big rectangle with the word ‘null’ on it.
    Can you help??

    Cheers

  10. Dean, what a stunningly beautiful theme. Thank you for sharing. I read above that you mentioned that photo captioning is coming in your next version. Any idea when that would be?

  11. Thank you! Although I really hate to clutter up such a clean layout, captioning would be a functional need.

  12. Hi Dean! beautiful theme! I really like!
    I write you because I have a problem when I want to create subcategories for my blog in localhost;
    I create a sub-category which has as its parent’s portfolio, in the menu “dropdown selector” I see, so far so good;
    when I create a post, I do the same as those for the portfolio category:
    new post, add image in post and add a custom field with the name gallery and the image URL.
    change category and subcategory with portfolio ….

    when I see the portfolio page, the new post image is in the portfolio category no in sub-categpry; If I try to enter in subcategory i see a withe page with nothing..

    help me to solve this problem please

  13. Hi Dean!
    isn’t online, is in localhost..my problem is in sub-category, when add the post in subcategory (portfolio’s parent), he is not in the subcategory which I had published but it appears in the portfolio category
    Thank

  14. Hi Dean,

    I really love this theme. I think it has everything I need but I am running into an issue.

    I posted a slideshow/gallery to the portfolio. I have all of my sub categories already set up so I clicked on a sub category for the post as well as portfolio. The post works when I click on “view post” after but there is no way to find it from the page because I have no subcategories listed under my portfolio drop down.

    I followed the instructions step by step (thank you for that) but I cannot figure out what I’m doing wrong.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

  15. Good morning,

    I followed installation instructions. Under Portfolio dropdown I get broken picture link icons. Source looks like:


    Thank you!

  16. Sorry about my last post. Let’s see if this works to post code:

  17. Hi dean!
    really good work ! i use your gallery since two weeks and it really work great, but i still have a “mystery question” that i don’t understand.
    mmmmmh, little difficult to describe, i don’t understand how category.php & page-gallery.php works.

    i changed the name of page-gallery.php many times to make different version, not in the same folder, and now, my only version who is working is a “page-dddgallery.php”, if i change it to page-gallery or something else i got nothing.

    it was not a big issue, in local, but now on a server, my gallery takes category.php (main gall template) and not respond to my “page-dddgallery.php” ?

    do you have any solution, sorry, weird question i have.
    thank you.

  18. Hi Dean,

    I’ve installed the plugin, but all I get is the preloader. The images have been optimised for the web, so that shouldn’t be the issue.

    Regards,
    Barry

  19. Is there anyway to change the picture thumbnails to just plain text links?

    Thanks,

    Sam

  20. Dean, you rock! I do have a problem though. It’s the same as Fred’s problem.
    I can see broken thumbnails off to the right and the little loading wheel is spinning.
    I did resize the images in Lightroom before I uploaded them, but i didn’t think that would be a problem. You said “The theme will do the resizing.” Could that be where the hangup is?
    I’ll email you my login info.

    Dean,

    I stumbled across your theme after two days of trying to patch something similar together from various bits & pieces of plugins and jscripts. It does everything I was looking for and a few things I didn’t even know I wanted.

    But like most other commenters, I have a problem: I can’t get the thumbnails to load. Someone had this problem in http://thriveweb.com.au/the-lab/photospace-wordpress-gallery-plugin/#comment-1242 but I don’t know if and how it was solved.

    I am running the 2.4 version of the theme, no plugins are active. The main page at http://wp.ordbavning.se/ shows only “image not found” placeholders instead of thumbnails. A closer look at a thumbnail URLs says http://wp.ordbavning.se/wp-content/themes/photospace/image.php?width=80&height=80&cropratio=1:1&image=http://wp.ordbavning.se/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/DSC00193.jpg and when I try to load that image, I get “Error: image does not exist: /customers/ordbavning.se/ordbavning.se/httpd.www/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/DSC00193.jpg”

    I edited image.php to hardcode ‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’ as ‘http://wp.ordbavning.se’. It didn’t solve the problem, but this time the URL for the thumbnail image generates the message “Error: image does not exist: http://wp.ordbavning.se/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/DSC00193.jpg“. That images does however exist.

    I have even set the permissions to 777 on the uploads and imagecache folders.

    The Photospace 2.1.4 plugin is installed but not activated.

    • Hi Pompom

      It may not work on your server. I’m going to redo this theme soon and use the Photospace plugin as the main gallery. It works on any server. Please check back for updates.

      • Dean,

        I solved it. I got the same error on my localhost and couldn’t dismiss it as a coincidence. Digging into image.php I realised that it’s not your script, so I don’t blame you for not supporting that. ;-)

        I looked around a little more and found that in most (perhaps all) cases it’s because WP doesn’t sit in the webroot. Having your domain mapped to a subfolder isn’t enough; if x.domain.org and domain.org/x point to the same folder it won’t work. I found two solutions to this particular problem:

        1) Move your WP files to the webroot. Ridiculously simple, in hindsight. I tested this and it worked.

        2) If you need your WP to be in a subfolder, you have to hack image.php. I found this solution http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3761733/has-anyone-used-smart-image-resizer-on-subdomain-sites and it almost worked. I also needed to change the inclusion of the WP headers to a relative path: require_once(‘../../../wp-blog-header.php’);

        All that’s left for me now is joining the chorus of appraisal. You are doing a wonderful job on both the theme itself and handling support questions both quickly and expertly. You don’t get that from a lot of developers these days.

        • Glad you got it working. I did some work on this issue with the first version of the Photospace plugin but I couldn’t get it to work for everyone. In the end using image.php makes the gallery load slow and can cause a server load. So now I use the built in thumbnails, works much better!

  24. As the theme includes the text from the pages under the images, is it possible to also include plugins like (or rather specifically) the Audio Player ?

    This is the direct link to the picture’s page (the picture not showing for good reasons, but the player is): http://wp.ordbavning.se/med-mera/

    This is the page within the frameset, It’s the very first one as the text below shows: http://wp.ordbavning.se/

    Scripting seems to be blocked. Reading the source, I can see that the script remains in the code. Is there a way to activate it?

    Regards again,

    /Pompom

    • Hi Pompom

      You may be able to get the audio player working but you would need to edit the code.

      I’m not doing any more work on this version of the theme so I can’t help you much sorry.

      D

  25. Hey Dean, I love the theme and everything works fine except for one thing….

    Posts I make in the Blog category also end up in the Main Gallery of the Home page. I want the Portfolio and Blog posts to be separate. Is that possible? Item #1 below is filed under the blog category but you see it ends up on the Home Page….

  26. Hi there,

  27. Hi Dean.

    Pictures can´t show up – only icon of broken image.

    Can you help me?Thank you very much

  28. after i downloaded the file and tried to upload it to the themes installer, it tells me that the install failed bc it is missing the style.css sheet. Am i doing something wrong?

  29. Axel-Ange says:

    Hi dean !
    Yes i know, I come a long time after them, but your template is exactly what I need. I got problems, it doesn’t work, got no gallery, but im sure, had follow your explications step by step.

    If you have time, could you just have a look ? Thanks.

    ¨PS: Sorry for my english, i’m french.

  30. At this time it seems like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  31. hi Dean,

    loved your plugin.
    Now, i just wanna know, if i can change the position of “caption and description” to right of the image instead of showing under the image?
    could you help me on this?

    thanks! :)

  32. mimelaine says:

    Hi Dean,
    great plugin, just a question.
    I put the custom field name “link” and the value with the complete URL… but link doesn’t work… help please!

  33. Good day! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate!

    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Hi, I desire to subscribe for this web site to take newest updates,
    thus where can i do it please assist.

  35. Yes! Finally someone writes about Adrenalast Review – Marko,.

  36. Good day I am so grateful I found your web site, I really
    found you by accident, while I was researching on Aol for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a incredible post and a
    all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over
    it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also added in your RSS
    feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the fantastic
    work.

  37. Hi,

    The photospace gallery has been live for over a year now BUT I still cannot work out why only one row of thumbnails is showing below the large image. I want to show dozens of images and I expected to see several rows of thumbnails.

    Any ideas?

    Steve

    • Hi Steve. Did you set this up? You have a custom layout and you need to adjust the layout with CSS. See the .thumbs_wrap2 div. You could try to add this to your theme css.

      
      
      . thumbs_wrap2{
        height: 150px !important;
        bottom: -150px !important;
      }
      
      

  38. Hi Dean!

    I see that you fixed the menu rollover image issue. The menu is now above the images. It’s showing great on IE 8. Also your “wordpress theme by thrive” alignment below is fixed as well.

    Thanks!
