    Hi there!

    Firstly the theme is awesome and mostly very easy to use thankyou!

    Site in question is

    One issue – I am not able to click the play button of any vimeo video in my portfolio except the first one, I imagine this is a sizing issue of my own creation.

    The thumbs are also extremely temperamental and will only load about half of the time. Filtering the categories causes some of them to suddenly display.

    Can you help?



    Ok, so after some reading of the forum I have realised this is common issue, I would much prefer videos to play in the portfolio thumbs rather thav have users open each page.

    Is it doable? It’s weird that some are working and other not.

    I used the iframe embed code for the videos, using just the link renders black squares.

    I am using Firefox on a mac.

    I also changed the embed options on each vimeo video to show less options on each video

    Still no luck…. Any help?


    And I have deactivated any plugins that might have been causing the issue, tried regenerating thumbnails, still no luck

    Please Help!!!!


    Hi selinamiles,

    I think your main issue with not being able to just use the vimeo links is that they can not have any parameters passed through them. IE the link for a video should be:

    No https and nothing after the video ID at the end.




    Hi Devin,

    Thanks so much for getting back to me.

    So I have changed the videos so they are now using only the link and they are showing up perfectly, thank you!

    But I still am having issues with clicking the play button? Most of them show a rollover but when clicked the video wont play, some of the rollovers don’t work.

    Any ideas?


    I’m not having any issues when I just tried the videos on the site. Some of them did take a few moments to start playing but they eventually did play.

    Is it only with a specific browser or device?




    Hi Devin,

    I think it’s firefox.

    I guess it’s not the worst problem in the world.

    Thanks heaps for your help, can probably go ahead and mark this as resolved.
