    I’m successfully using WPML together with Avisio… I’ve been able to setup translation for even the custom posts… BUT there’s one thing not working: the portfolio’s.

    Now, before you tell me you are not supporting WPML :-), please read ahead and you’ll see you probably can help me.

    WPML allows me to translate all the portfolio pages/posts, and even it’s categories, but the problem is they don’t show up when I translate the portfolio page… Logical, because in your theme I have to define in the avisio portfolio options which page is used for the portfolio, and which categories… and that is where the problem is: The translated pages and categories do not show in your interface.

    I see 2 solutions:

    1. find out where the configuration file is, and I change the file by hand, so that I can enter the translated page number (or string) on the place where the english page number or string is listed, and do the same for the categories (number or string)… In order to do so, I need to know what to change though, and whether you keep that info by page number, or in another way.

    2. I adapt the code of portfolio.php so that I no longer get a popup selecton list (which does not includes my translated pages and categories), but i can enter the page number and the categorie number as a number.

    Would one of these 2 solutions be possible to do, and how ?

    I would really appreciate a quick answer.

    Kind Regards,

    I got it all working with WPML.

    Out of the box the plugin will allow you to translate all your pages and posts. The custom posts “portfolios” and “sliders” won’t work out of the box, but I have changed the code of the theme so that it all works perfectly. Took about 30 hours of work, but was worth it. You can see the results at: … It speaks 5 languages :-)

    Maybe someone is interested in your service. I’ll stick it to the top because we get several WPML support requests every week.





    I need to translate Avisio – 4 languages – using WPML.

    Polish (default), English, German, Russian, Czech.

    The problem occurs with the parties managed by Avisio: Home site: button, main content – tabs, prortfolio, blog.

    If it is possible to buy this modification, please send more information – (Email address hidden if logged out)





    please contact the author directly. You can find his email in the first post. I talked to him so it’s ok if you contact him directly. He charges a freelancer fee for the modifications.



    Ok. Thanks Dude for information.




    Glad that I could help you :)



    is there a simple fix for translating the Home Page with WPML?

    I got the whole site translated and everything works fine, except the home page. I’m not making use of the Tabs, I’m just displaying one page’s content on the home page, which I specified in the Main Page Settings.

    I’ve created a translation for that page, but when I switch the language on the home page, I just get an empty page.

    The site is

    Is there a simple workaround?




    No I’m sorry – at the moment I’m only aware of one work around which fixes all problems (main page, slider, portfolio). You can contact the user who offers his help in the first post.


    Hi Dude,

    ok, thanks.

    You don’t happen to know the code just for the home page?

    This is quite an important thing, since the Avisio theme is advertised as WPML compatible. I’m a bit reluctant to pay extra just to make the home page translatable.

    This must be an issue that comes up quite often. It would be great to offer a solution in this support forum.



    Can you show me a link where we advertise Avisio WPML compatible…? I’ll suggest Kriesi to make upcoming themes (and existing themes) WPML compatible as some people need this feature. But as far as I know we never promised that Avisio, CleanCut or Habitat are WPML ready…



    sorry about that. My bad.

    When I did some research about the theme some months ago, I read about it being compatible, but it’s true – there is no mention of it on any Avisio Theme site. Actually, it is specifically mentioned in the forum that compatibility is not guaranteed. So please forgive the accusation. I can remove the sentence from the last post.

    I’ll contact Bruno van Branden for help with this.

    Thanks for your quick replies!


    No problem. Just ask if you’ve any other questions :)
