    Recently posted this in the reply to another thread but not sure if it’s been noticed so starting a new one…

    I just downloaded this theme (which looks great, btw!) and would like to request the same feature as previous posters – basically, I would like to have a simple gallery for my homepage, but which looks like the demo (so clickable individual images, instead of a collection of portfolio projects).

    I actually didn’t realise when I browsed the demo that it wouldn’t be possible to do this. I know, my bad.

    Unfortunately creating a regular page up with a gallery and setting that as the homepage doesn’t work for me – it is too narrow and lacks the nice little welcome text in the top left. The layout in the demo is what sold the theme for me.

    Is there a workaround? Could you possibly post some css so myself and others can amend the theme accordingly?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Hello, Ed.

    This theme is intended for project-based representation of works. So the portfolio layout (and its variations) that you see on the front page can only lead to projects, not to individual images.

    What you can do to achieve what you described is to use the front-end code of the front page and lay a different back-end below it. For instance, the ACF Pro plugin that comes bundled with the theme offers a gallery field.

    So you could create a new page layout, assign an ACF gallery and an ACF text field to it (for the welcome text). And then use the markup that’s being generated for the front page and create the markup for your new page template from it.

    This customisation would require quite an amount of coding (not covered by support according to ThemeForest rules). In my experience, good places to contract a coder for WP-related work are Toptal and Codeable.

    Regards,
    Paul

    P.S.
    Some mods of this theme also include things like that.
    I believe this gallery on the front page is powered by Modulobox.

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe you could send me a quote for this work yourself?

    Dear Paul,

    I am also interested in functionality mentioned above. If possible, could you send me also the quotation for this kind of upgrade?

    Is there any of your customer which implemented this kind of update?

    Thank you in advance,
