F.A.Q.

1. "I get "Error loading work" message when I try to open a project."

It's very probable that you uploaded the theme in the directory /wp-content/themes/folio-two-wordpress/folio-two

You should not upload the folio-two-wordpress directory, so you have to remove it. The theme have to be in the /wp-content/themes/folio-two directory

2. "My custom theme options are not been applied in the site correctly. I can't move the logo, I can't change the navigation bar background, I can't change the main color, etc."

Sometimes in some WordPress installations you need to update the permalinks in order to get the pages load correctly. In the WordPress Dashboard go to Settings, Permalinks and click on Save Changes.

3. "How to change the loader image?"

You can use CSS to remove or simplify the loader element. In "Style" theme page options there is field called Custom CSS where you can put your custom CSS.

To remove the background image and color of the element and make it more simple, write the following CSS:

#spinnerWrapper { background: none; }

Since the v1.2 version we included a option within the option panel to simplify automatically the preloader. Just enable the check button and your advanced preloader will be changed by a normal spinner. Easy right?

4. "I want to update Folio Two from v1.0 to v1.2 and I've made modifications to some files. Can I know which files have been changed since the v1.0?"

Remember that styling your site and preventing to loose your changes it is very easy. Just use the custom css feature within the option panel to include your own styles. This option creates a custom.css file that you can save before updating your site. Any change you will do over the core files of the theme need to be supported by you. For this reason we have created this list and we recommend to use some comparision files software like Kaleidoscope app. This software lets you know where the code changed comparing it with older files and updates. It is really easy to use and work with modified files.

Here you have the complete change log from the first version to the v1.2. Note that M means modified, A added and D deleted.
