    Will anyone create a good theme for display of portrait photographs (prevalent in certain circles – portrait photography for example)??

  2. Simon Reply

    Where are the contact details used? I have filled in the phone and email address, but can’t find where or how to display the data. Am I missing something??
    Also – when will you create an “Oyster” section in your forum?
    By the way – nice theme.

    Do you have any tutorials on how to impliment the different functionalities of this template? I have been trying to figure out how to make vertical stipes….I feel like an idiot!

    Hi. I recently bought Oyster on themeforest and I am currently struggling with setting up an ‚about‘ page like you have in your live demo:


    I tried to accomplish that with using “Background Image“ layout, but then I can not have content anymore.

    Perhaps you can give me a hint 🙂



    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Sebastian!
      We provide the support via our help forum at http://forums.gt3themes.com/viewforum.php?f=68 To get the same about page, you have to use “Vertically stretched page” template. Also, please read the documentation for obtaining information.

    I’m about to buy this amazing theme ( perfect for what I want ), but i’d like to know if it’s possible to have a heading with a central logo and navigation buttons under ?
    Thank you.

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Nicolas!
      Unfortunately it is not available in this theme.

  6. Nicolas Tainon Reply

    Well…it should work ^^
    Another question :

    Is the theme compatible with woocommerce ?

    • gt3themes Reply

      We are working on WooCommerce version at the moment. It will look like on this screenshot http://take.ms/qrvSg It will be a paid version and it won’t be available on TF. You can purchase it directly from our site.

  7. Nicolas Tainon Reply

    OK. Do you already have any idea on when it should be released ?

    • gt3themes Reply

      It will be ready at the end of the next week.

  8. gt3themes Reply

    New upcoming option for the Oyster WordPress Theme. You will be able to set the padding around the images in the Grid and Masonry galleries. You can easily set your own parameter in pixels. Please check how it looks now http://www.gt3themes.com/wordpress-themes/oyster/gallery-grid-with-margin/

  9. Nicolas Tainon Reply


    One last question :
    is it possible with this theme to create a ” parallax ” website ?
    I’m more and more working with this style of website for an obvious reason : smartphone & tablets navigation.

    • gt3themes Reply

      It is fullscreen photography related design, there is no reason to use it in the theme. Moreover, the parallax affects the performance of the site.

    would the portfolio layout work with an ecommerce i would like my store to have that layout

  20. Debbie Reply

    so i cannot have the oyster look with the menu of shop and then it shows the layout you supplied for the shop side of the website ? I don’t want just the shop look

    • gt3themes Reply

      Did not get what you mean. You can’t have the store to look like the portfolio. The shop layout can be only like on the demo.

      • Christine Peacock Reply

        Guess this answers my question/concern and it seems I will not be able to link over to the shop for digital download from gallery or portfolio items. Darn, I guess I will have to keep looking…

  21. Debbie Reply

    i want to have my site have the oyster wordpress look when you land on it with the blog, gallery etc and in the menu it has the shop you click on and it takes you to the shop and it will have the look you have with the extension purchased to the standard theme

    • gt3themes Reply

      Sure, you can do that.

  22. terry.steeley Reply

    I am confused. Does the ‘Import Demo Content’ simply add the sample content or create the look / feel of the demo site?

    • gt3themes Reply

      It imports the content of the demo page, pages, posts, galleries etc. You will have the same layout like on the demo, except the page with the 3rd party plugins, which are contact form 7 and revolution slider.

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Mattias!
      Maybe you do something wrong? What are your steps to display the gallery on the site? Did you read the documentation that comes with the theme? It is explained how to work with the custom templates, etc

  24. terry.steeley Reply

    Hi, can you confirm the url for the Revolution Slider is… http://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380?ref=wpexplorer&ref=mad_dog&clickthrough_id&redirect_back=true. I would like to know I have the correct plugin. Apologies, if the link is in your documentation, I couldn’t find it.

  25. terry.steeley Reply

    Hi, I am confused with information regarding the Revolution Slider. I purchased the slider separately but now see it in the theme folder. Does this mean I must use the version from the theme folder or the newer version I purchased today? The reason I ask is because I aware of the vulbnerability issues with earlier versions of this plugin exposing websites and db’s to hackers.

    Additionally, your documentation states to choose the file import_slider.zip. I cannot find this zip file. Has it changed name?

    • gt3themes Reply

      Yes, the slider is included in the main zip file -> Plugins folder.
      You have to use fullscreen.zip file. It contains the fullscreen demo settings.

      • terry.steeley Reply

        Does the theme plugin have the fix for vulnerability? Will fullscreen.zip work with the newer plugin I purchased?

        • gt3themes

          Yes, it does. The included plugin version is 4.3.8

  26. Pieter Pennings Reply

    Hi, I like the template but as an photographer I’m not happy with the results on a smartphone (I use iPhone 5). The photo’s are cropped a lot instead of resized, especially holding the phone standing while showing a landscape size photo. Also the browser bar gets in the way. As you can see on the attached screenshots. Can you tweak these things? That would be great!

    • gt3themes Reply

      The thing is that you check the fullscreen slider with the settings (resize the images to the fullscreen), that’s why it resizing the entire photo. Check this slider http://www.gt3themes.com/wordpress-themes/oyster/fullscreen-slider-2/

      • Pieter Pennings Reply

        Thanks, this looks better. (Still wonder how it behaves with both standing and landscapes photos). But I did not see this page in the demo-navigation (is it?). Do you have more cool pages which aren’t in the demo? Thanks again.

        • gt3themes

          That’s the same fullscreen slider but with the different settings. You can change them while working with the slider, no code changes requires.

    Do you have a step by step guide for beginners, every time I press a button another heading seems to appear how do I delete these off

    • gt3themes Reply

      You clicked import demo content 5 times, thats why it duplicated the content. Please don’t do that, because every time you click “import demo content” it does import. Now, please go to Menus section and remove the duplicated menu items. Having more questions, please read the documentation that comes with the theme and visit our help forum at http://forums.gt3themes.com/viewforum.php?f=68

    I’m interested in purchasing the entire package, WP, HTML and WooCom module BUT am concerned that shopping is only done from shopping pages. I would like to initiate a link from any gallery photo for digital download. Is this possible (do not want the store separate from the portfolio or gallery).

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Christine!
      We use woocommerce plugin for selling the items on the site.

  39. Christine Peacock Reply

    OK, maybe there is a way to sell digital downloads from these lovely gallery or portfolio pages and I would like you to verify… In the “I Sell Photo” and “Easy Digital Downloads” product pages, it is stated that these plugins create digital download links from our template galleries. As I understand it, that means we don’t need to have the store separate from the gallery. Is that correct? Will these plugins work with Oyster template to link to digital download purchase direct from a gallery item?!!! Please verify…

    • gt3themes Reply

      There is no automated system which could do that things easily.

    Hi, I bought th beautiful theme and I am now building my site. Does the theme always use the full-size uploaded images for the slideshows, or is there a way to force the use of wordpress-generated ‘large thumbnails’. I would like to make my photos available in the best possible quality for download. But these files (5-8 MB each) are way too large for use in the slideshow.

    Is it possible for Oyster to search photos with keywords i’ve

    (I’ve searched in all the GT3 oyster forum but there is no answer for this)

    But for now, I set a search page with tags; http://mekanstop.com/?page_id=2431,
    but when i click on a tag, the result page appears in a unprofessional
    “posts” look. Is it possible to see the results only with thumbnails?
    And, yes, i have to make posts, and link them to my portfolios to be
    able to make search via Tags. Because as far as i know, we can not set
    tags for portfolio or category pages.

    Many thanks,

    Just bought this theme. Love the look! Never used WP before so I’m having a few difficulties trying to make it all look like I want but it is coming together nicely overall. The main issue I’m having is speed of images loading. I’m using the full page ribbon slider. Many of my images are probably too large and that is the problem. I wanted to ask what is the optimum size or resolution of image to use so that I don’t lose quality but so that there is no delay in loading.

    • gt3themes Reply

      Thanks for the purchase.
      We recommend to use the images, for example for the fullscreen sliders not higher than 1900px by width.

    Hello. I really love this theme and am thinking of purchasing for a site I’m working on. But I have a list of questions about certain customizations I’m curious about I was hoping I could ask first. I tried signing up to create a convo in the support forum but it apparently needs me to buy first. Is there a more direct way to contact so I can send some of my questions I had?

    Hello, I have been using the Oyster theme for a few months now and love it. I have one issue that I have been trying to fix and was hoping you could help. Under my Blog, the ‘Read More’ button is unable to be recognized and appears to blend in with the white theme background. This issue also appears also under my Contact page, the ‘Submit’ button does not appear unless hovered over by the mouse. I need this button to pop out more with a different color. I figured this is a coding thing since I cannot find how to change the color of buttons when editing the appearance under ‘manage themes’. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi, I saw there was an update today. Since my current version is working , I may wait to install this update. One thing I’d love to see is a horizontal mouse wheel scroll listener for the ribbon portfolio pages. I found a page with the Java script code for this but that is way out of my league to modify! Any chance of adding horizontal mouse wheel scroll? Almost everyone with an Apple Magic mouse would appreciate this!

    Hello, I just recently started using the Oyster theme. However, I stumbled onto a problem. When I upload my pictures (which are of a high quality), the quality of my photos doesn’t show on my page at all. I am using Gallery Ribbon to display them. I found a default size of (910) in the code, but when I change that to a bigger size, it doesn’t change much really.

        No it doesn’t. It displays them according to the date of uploading. What Mo No asked (which happens to be my question as well) is there any way to control the order other than just changing those dates? The “order” function doesn’t work properly. By that I mean that asiging numbers doesn’t change the actual order. It does absolutely nothing.

        • gt3themes

          If you change the publish date, it will change the order. You can try to use some 3rd party plugins. This custom post type works in the same way like blog posts.

    Hi, one of the limitations on many photography centered hosts these days is maximum resolution, with many stretching resolution on a files as low as 1000px across a 5k display. It doesn’t look pretty at all, but they do it to ensure the theme and website remains responsive. Are there any such limitations in this theme or can I pick whatever resolution I want for my images?

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Russ!
      Yes, you can upload any image resolution, but please note that if you have for example 10 images with 5000px by width and the size of the image will be approximately 6MB, you will have a page with 60MB + HTML + CSS + JS files and it will take a lot of time to load the page content.
