Porto 3.5.1

Responsive HTML5 Template

Thank you for purchasing our theme. If you have any questions that are beyond the scope of this help file, please feel free to email via our user page contact form or to our support forum at http://www.okler.net.

Most of the questions are already answered in the FAQ's:

Due to local security restrictions, some things will not work locally, especially in Chrome. But everything will work once the files have been updated to your website.

Use Firebug or Chrome Developer Tools.

Do not start from scratch, use an existing page from the demo and modify it to learn how it works.

Getting an error message? Someone might have seen it too, try a google search for a quick fix.

    /css (Template CSS)
        /fonts (Font Faces, Font Awesome, etc..)
            ... (Create your own skin)
    /img (All Images)
    /js (Template JS)
        /views (JS to run in specific pages. I.E: Home or Contact Us)
    /master (You don't need to include that folder in your project, it has only the Style Switcher functions)
    /php (PHP Helpers - I.E: Contact Us form.)
    /vendor (All external libs. We keep all of them in this folder to make updates easily.)
    /video (All Videos)


It's possible to change the JS settings by extending the defaults from the template, that way is so much easier to update the theme changing only one JS file.


Changing Settings

1) Example: Changing the "scroll to top" icon: (js/custom.js)

$.extend(theme.PluginScrollToTop.defaults, {
	iconClass: 'fa fa-chevron-up'


2) Example: Changing the "word rotate" default delay: (js/custom.js)

$.extend(theme.PluginWordRotate.defaults, {
	delay: 3000

You can find all the defaults of the plugins and partials in the file js/theme.js as you can see here:


Changing Plugins Options

The template includes a very simple way to configure the elements that are initialized automatically, such as the sliders, you just need to put the settings in the "data-plugin-options" attribute, as you can see below:

<div class="slider" data-plugin-revolution-slider data-plugin-options='{"startheight": 700}'>

It works the same way for most of the plugins included in the template: owlCarousel, Word Rotate, Twitter Feed, etc...

If you want to disable the auto initialization you can just add a class "manual" or remove the data-plugin-* attribute:

<div class="slider manual" id="myRevolutionSlider>

So now you can initialize that using the standard JS mode:

$(document).ready(function() {

Remove/Disable a Plugin or Partial

If you want to remove/disable a plugin or partial that has a "initialize" function completely, follow this example:

theme.PluginScrollToTop.initialize = false;

You can find all the available plugins and partials in the file js/theme.init.js as you can see here:


Manually Initializing a Plugin

Some of the plugins/elements are initialized automatically, if you want to disabled that and call the plugin via Javascript, follow these steps:



<div class="owl-carousel" data-plugin-options='{"items": 6, "singleItem": false, "autoPlay": true}'>


<div class="owl-carousel manual" id="owl-example">


$(document).ready(function() {
        "items": 6,
        "singleItem": false,
        "autoPlay": true

The template is based on Bootstrap 3 Framework - http://getbootstrap.com

Bootstrap includes a responsive, mobile first fluid grid system that appropriately scales up to 12 columns as the device or viewport size increases.

Basic HTML Markup

<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-12">
        Level 1 column
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-6">Level 2</div>
            <div class="col-md-6">Level 2</div>


If you need more information, please visit this site: http://getbootstrap.com/css/#grid

The organization of the CSS is one of our priorities.
These are the CSS file we're using in the template:

- theme.css - (The basic layout structure styles)

- theme-elements.css - (Elements such as sliders, boxes, titles, etc...)

- theme-shop.css - (Shop Pages styles)

- theme-blog.css (Blog Pages styles)

- theme-animate.css (CSS Animations)

- custom.css (Add all customizations into this file)

- ie.css (Internet Explorer fixes)



The style switcher was made to support unlimited skin colors, for that we use Less (http://www.lesscss.org/) to process the CSS dinamically in the demo and show the color right away.
You don't need to use LESS in your project, after you done customizing your skin you may want to grab the generated code and save it in a file in the folder: /css/skins/(skin-name).css

Layout Style (Normal/Boxed)

The template has two different layout modes, Wide and Boxed. The wide one is the default option, if you want to use the Boxed version, add the following class in the <html>:

<html class="boxed">

You can also customize the background color or image.

Background Color (Light/Dark)

The template has two different background colors, Light and Dark. The light one is the default option, if you want to use the Dark version, add the following class in the <html>:

<html class="dark">



To change the embedded font, please take a look in the head part of the website and you will find this tag:

 <link href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300,400,600,700,800|Shadows+Into+Light" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

To change the font, first go to http://www.google.com/webfonts choose a font and use the generated code.

Font Awesome is a @font-face iconset that you can change size and color of the icons using CSS.

If you need more information, please visit this site: http://fontawesome.io/


HTML Markup:

<i class="fa fa-edit"></i>
<i class="fa fa-search"></i>


Home Page Sliders

Revolution Slider

This is one of the best slider plugins we have seen so far.

"Slider Revolution is a fully developed slide displaying system offering the capability to show images, videos and captions paired with simple, modern and fancy 3D transitions. On top of that, Slider Revolution is fully responsive and mobile optimized and can take on any dimensions."

More details on http://themes.themepunch.com/?theme=revolution_jq

The video background are driven by the Vide Plugin - https://github.com/VodkaBears/Vide

Here's an example of usage:

<section class="video" data-video-path="video/dark" data-plugin-video-background data-plugin-options='{"posterType": "jpg", "position": "50% 50%"}'>


Prepare your video in several formats like '.webm', '.mp4' for cross browser compatability, also add a poster with .jpg, .png or .gif extension and set in the attribute data-video-path.


The filter is driven by the Isotope script - http://isotope.metafizzy.co/

Here's an example of usage:

Filter Options:

<ul class="nav nav-pills sort-source" data-sort-id="team" data-option-key="filter">
    <li data-option-value="*" class="active"><a href="#">Show All</a></li>
    <li data-option-value=".leadership"><a href="#">Leadership</a></li>
    <li data-option-value=".marketing"><a href="#">Marketing</a></li>
    <li data-option-value=".development"><a href="#">Development</a></li>
    <li data-option-value=".design"><a href="#">Design</a></li>

Filter Data:

<ul class="team-list sort-destination" data-sort-id="team">
    <li class="col-md-3 isotope-item leadership">
        <div class="team-item thumbnail">
            <a href="#" class="thumb-info team">
                <img alt="" src="img/team/team-1.jpg">
                <span class="thumb-info-title">
                    <span class="thumb-info-inner">John Doe</span>
                    <span class="thumb-info-type">CEO</span>
            <span class="thumb-info-caption">
                <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Cras ac ligula mi, non suscipitaccumsan.</p>
                <div class="thumb-info-social-icons">
                    <a rel="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" target="_blank" href="http://www.facebook.com" data-original-title="Facebook"><i class="icon-facebook"></i><span>Facebook</span></a>
                    <a rel="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" href="http://www.twitter.com" data-original-title="Twitter"><i class="icon-twitter"></i><span>Twitter</span></a>
                    <a rel="tooltip" data-placement="bottom" href="http://www.linkedin.com" data-original-title="Linkedin"><i class="icon-linkedin"></i><span>Linkedin</span></a>

How to integrate Porto Admin Extension on Porto.

Warning! The admin extension is NOT included on Porto - Responsive HTML5 Template, to get all features, purchase both templates: Porto ($15) + Porto Admin ($23): $38 Total.


The Admin Extension is a package with some features from Porto Admin template that can be used in the Front-End (Porto - Responsive HTML5 Template).

- Porto - Responsive HTML5 Template comes with a few samples files, such as feature-admin-charts.html, feature-admin-forms-advanced.html, etc... with those, you can see the HTML Markup and the working pages from the preview.

- In each page you can see which CSS/JS files you need to include to get the elements working.


Steps to use the admin extension:

1) Add the CSS files for that specific page (in this example, based on feature-admin-forms-advanced.html):


(Make sure the paths for the admin match with your own structure, in this example, the path is /admin/...)


2) Add the JS files for that specific page:


(Consider to combine and compress all those files on your project)


3) That's it, now you can start to use the features from the admin as seen in the preview.


SKIN: If you want to change the color skin, don't forget to generate the extension skin file and save in the file (assets/stylesheets/skins/extension.css):

The images included in preview are for demonstration purposes and should always be replaced with your own work.
