I’ve been searching for themes appropriate for a photography site for days and I find the Bild theme the most appealing! I’d just like to get a couple of answers before I purchase it.
I don’t want any cropping on my pictures. I want my homepage to function exactly like this one: https://www.renatorampolla.com/
I am wondering if this is possible to create with the theme as it is, or do I need plug-ins, or do I need extra coding?
I would also like the gallery/portfolio pictures to be clickable but without the half-transparent layer and typography appearing on it. Is that possible?October 16, 2017 at 6:19 pm #1462
In a word: you can have a front page just like Renato Rampolla without any additional plugins or coding.
That is a checkbox. Here is how this looks from within the Admin Panel:
Please mind though that if you want to use the ‘project’ custom post type, it will always crop your images for thumbs (example) and show uncropped images in a lightbox once you click an image.
As for removing the half transparent layer and project names over it, this can be done with a few lines of CSS that I can provide here on the forum (at no cost) and you can just paste them with a plugin.
If you buy the theme, I highly recommend that you follow the setup instructions in the User Guide and import the demo content. This will make figuring out how to use the theme much easier.
It’s great to know you found the Bild theme stand out from the crowd. I really appreciate that.

Thanks for your help! I’m so slow but I’m finally ready to update my homepage and buy your theme. I’m curious about the support option though. I’m offered 12 months of support instead of the 6 months included for an extra 15 $. But it seems we get free support from you here anyways? Is it necessary to buy those extra months? Does that really money go to you or to Envato Market..?
All the best,

It’s great to know that this theme has been on your mind for this long ; )
As for support, yes, usually I’m providing support regardless of whether a user has a plan running or not (and some people obviously sort of take advantage of it). That’s just because I didn’t setup a check for that, always being busy with other stuff. The support money on TF goes to authors (minus a comission that goes to TF).

Then I understand. If the money goes to you I’m happy to pay it, and I’ll definitely be needing the help 🙂January 13, 2018 at 5:16 pm #1551
Thanks. Be sure to start with the User Guide* that comes with the theme. And if you have any questions, I’m always ready to help here. Cheers!
* — In case you don’t know where to find the User Guide:
Go to https://themeforest.net/downloads. Find the theme and click ‘Download’ > ‘All files & documentation’. Download and unpack the zip file. The User Guide will be in the ‘Documentation’ folder.
