    Love how Avisio portfolio items can quickly and easily play SWF or MOV in the portfolio items. Can the portfolio items in Habitat theme do the same, just like Avisio?


    Habitat offers the same portfolio options as Avisio – you can even embed videos directly (which is not possible in Avisio) – have a look at the demo here:

    The Dude


    I bought Habitat and it does not handle SWF’s and MOV’s in a lightbox, it only shows the video url’s, no thumbnail. Please help


    Hello? Still waiting to hear back. Adding in the SWF url plus the height and width listed directly below does NOT work. It only shows the url instead of the thumbnail or the video in a lightbox. HELP!! (

    Link to view the problem:



    The video’s won’t play in a popup light box but do give you the option for full screen (as per the demo). Personally I hate videos in a lightbox because you usually end up with the same size video and can’t make it full screen.

    I suggest using the demo content importer to show you an example of how the entries with videos should be displayed – then either adapt the demo video entry or create your own using the demo video entry for guidance.



    Hi James,

    1. If you looked at theat link I actually provided from my last post above, you would have seen that the portfolio title and read more button elements have been removed from the portfolio items, since everything will be using a lightbox. Since this theme does not do what you claimed prior to me buying it then it’s useless to me and I should get a full refund since you made false statements about this themes features above.

    Also I do not want users to have to go to another page that has full screen video inserted that also has a side bar and blank content section below the full-screen video. That would not even make since from a user experience perspective.

    This theme needs to do what you claimed “same portfolio options as Avisio” or I will be requesting a full refund since you made false statements above prior to me buying this theme, which led me to buy the theme.


    Even worse!!! You claimed above that your theme does in fact handle SWF or MOV. Forget about a lightbox not containing videos which sucks in itself, When i insert ( that shows up in the thumbnail preview and also in the actual portfolio post, but as put in the Adobe SWF url you provided above, i get the URL in the thumbnail, NOT the SWF file. That is even more mis-leading….. I spent 50+ hours on this damn theme now I have to walk away from it and use a real video theme like “Breeze”….

    This is the 2nd lie you made about this Habitat theme, the portfolio features are NOTHING like the Avisio theme, like you claimed above, prior to me buying this theme. I will be pushing for a refund, due to your complete mis-representation of this themes portfolio option.

    For people that want to use sefl hosted videos, this theme is 100% USELESS!!!!!!!


    You’re free to contact themeforest for a refund. I’m sorry for any misleading statements I made.
