is it possible to have a video sequence shown on the start page (matrix hero) of hamlstad photography theme instead of the bg image?
Thanks and best regards,
Serhiy (Sunday, 07 May 2017 12:15)
yes, the Halmstad theme has an option of fullscreen video. All you have to do is to place the code inside the content area in widget/HTML and add the ID of youtube video in HTML folder. Please check
the details in section " documentation ".

I'm trying to do the full width image you told me but the image is not showing up. What can the problem be?
Serhiy (Friday, 12 May 2017 20:51)
I just fixed the error.

I've put a parallax code in my landing page but I'm having difficulties putting the button in the center. I've replaced the left-aligned for right align and it work but for the center it isnt
working. Besides that can you tell me how can I put the text box with less width since it' using the total width of the parallax?
Apart from that, I'd also like to know how I can leave no blank space between the elements and have them have full width.
Serhiy (Sunday, 14 May 2017 01:01)
1) use the class 'text-center' to add center aligned buttons;
2) you can use grid columns for <p>
for example <p class="col-10"> and 'text-center' if you wish to make it center aligned;
3) use </br> to make the space between two elements

I have an image saved as header03.jpg to use it as a header. I replaced the old one for a new one in the header fullwidth image by uploading in the 'Files' but it is still showing the old, which was
already deleted. Can you help please? Thanks.
Serhiy (Thursday, 22 June 2017 21:44)
@Joao there are 2 ways to fix it:
1) upload a file with different name, for example instead if header.03.jpg use 'header003.jpg'. then in CSS change the file name and click the save button.
2) this is happens because Jimdo system is still showing the old image saved in cache. You need to make any change in CSS ( no matter, just remove a piece of code and add it again) clicking the save
button at the end. In this way your CSS folder will be updated and you can see the new image.

is it possible to use the "awesome buttons" as a download for a pdf? If yes, can you please tell me how?
Serhiy (Wednesday, 02 August 2017 07:24)
@Alessandro no, unfortunately it's not possible to use custom styles for download buttons

On the page named 'Sessions' I have this shortcode for the Toggles. However, I don't know what's going on since when I click the plus, the title disappears and the content doesn't show up. Can you
help me please?

Im changing my homepage but I'm having a problem. The full width slider I'm using for latest posts, I'd like to say where I want it to be in terms of position, because it went straight up and I can't
seem to change that. The second issue is that within the slider, the third image has the font in a different size and I have no idea why.
I appreciate the help,
Serhiy (Sunday, 10 December 2017 20:26)
@Joao the fullwidth slider is displayed always on the top of the header, it can't have any other position. In your homepage I can see you solved the problem with the font

I have a problem with the accordion menu widget: When the site with the accordion-menu is loading, I can see the first accordion panel open for a short time, before it get closed. (
https://stero-velbert.jimdo.com/deutsch/kontakt/ ). How can I get all panels be shown closed right from the start?
Thanks for your help,

@Christina you can add the following line to CSS:

I was tying to implement that customer feedback widget into two columns but It's not working. I try to copy the thing again but it just doesn't work. Which part of the code do I have to alter?
Serhiy (Saturday, 09 June 2018 18:11)
@João the latest widgets added to Enterprise package such as tile parallax and feedback widgets work only in templates installed from March 2018
João (Sunday, 10 June 2018 15:15)
Isn't it possible to make it work for other templates? It's a bit weird paying for a template and things just stop working there. There should be a some sort of update to allow us to also use such
widgets since businesses like mine rely on it.
Serhiy (Sunday, 10 June 2018 15:22)
@João I don't find your comment correct. No widget of your purchased template stopped working. The new widgets work in new templates. You can decide to update your purchased theme, there's no any
extra cost for that.

Can I change the social icons to the top of my home page?, I read in the documentation something about Magic Button but I can´t find where I have to make the change.
Serhiy (Tuesday, 14 August 2018 17:32)
@Airam just place the social icons to your footer and add the class "hs-magic" ( details in documentation )
Airam Alfonso (Friday, 17 August 2018 18:27)
There is a way in ENTERPRISE package for set the blog style in columns? Also I create an article for the blog and it doesn't showing the resume, the only way I found to show the first image and text
is setting the teaser, but I need to show up the resume of the article and of course the button Read More.
Serhiy (Friday, 17 August 2018 19:50)
@Airam blog inside the columns available in advanced package
Airam Alfonso (Friday, 17 August 2018 20:59)
OK Serhiy but why in my blog doesn't show the summary of my article.
Serhiy (Friday, 17 August 2018 21:02)
@Airam you can set up the length of your teaser or display the whole post
David (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 12:18)
I have problems with my mobile view. I want my Hisingen-Page to look exactly like your example on the Matrix-Page. That means If I load the page on my mobile I just want to see the background-picture
(full-screen) and then scroll down to the next sections. At the moment I see a small background-picture and also the next sections. How do I change that?
Thanks for your help
Serhiy (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 12:26)
@David, in the latest versions of Matrix themes the fullscreen image in mobile version is smaller. It's not a bug but made on purpose because not all (mobile) browser display correctly the image.-
just check the Matrix themes website while the some of the demo websites haven't been updated.
David (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 13:03)
OK, thanks! And I have another problem:
Is it possible to change the preinstalled structure? On your example-hisingen-page there is more than one content box (1. Background Picture 2. New content part with different color 3. New content
part with different color etc.). I would like to put most of my content on one page, so the user just has to scroll down, just like on your example page. And can I link to these parts in the
Serhiy (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 16:16)
@David unfortunately not. I don't change the content of existing website, just install the template with different design. In Matrix Themes menu, you just select the section shortcodes > custom
widgets and choose the widget you want to use in your website.( 1. Parallax image; 2) fullwidth section etc. In Jimdo navigation ( default theme) it's not possible to add the anchor links, for this
there's one pager which has a completely different layout structure. If the template is not what you expected, just fill out the form from support page asking for the full refund.
David (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 17:27)
OK, no, I think I will still try it, but I have another question (sorry!):
How do I change the color of the title of the overlay teaser (shortcodes)? I changed the main brand colors, but the title color of the overlay teaser won't adjust.
Thanks for your help!
Serhiy (Wednesday, 10 October 2018 18:22)
@David the color of global links ( content or footer) can be edited in Design> Font Settings> links
David (Thursday, 11 October 2018 10:17)
Thanks for all the help, Serhiy. Much appreciated! One last question:
Is there any way to link parts of the navigation to a special part of the page? E.g.: There is a point in the navigation named "latest works" and when you click on it, it jumps right to the latest
works part of the page.
Thanks a lot!
Serhiy (Thursday, 11 October 2018 10:19)
@David no, it's not possible
Christina (Thursday, 06 December 2018 12:28)
Hallo Serhiy, meine website hat einen Videoheader auf der Startseite (2vision-sg.jimdofree.com). Dieser wird in der mobilen Ansicht ja nicht angezeigt. Kann ich stattdessen in der mobilen Ansicht ein
Bild (bg.jpg?) anzeigen lassen? Im Moment ist nur eine Farbfläche zu sehen.
Danke und liebe Grüße, Christina
Serhiy (Thursday, 06 December 2018 12:40)
@Christina the fullscreen video is deactivated in mobile and tablet devices, for that reason you need to add the image ( Jimdo Awesome backgrounds) that will replace the video.

is there something like an overview of all the icons that are usable in the "one fourth widget" or the "linked overlay" over images?

Dear Alex, Frederic bought this theme for kopfkinomedia. We are currently installing a second website. Can we use the same theme for that website, as it is book under the his account at jimdo? Or do
we have to buy it another time?
Serhiy (Saturday, 04 May 2019 18:59)
@dorothee yes, you can use it but keep in mind that theme support will be available only for one website
Dorothee (Sunday, 05 May 2019 15:30)
okay understood. Process will be similar, so I do not worry about that. How do I install it for: emotionale-fotografie.de? Could you kindly give me support for the first step, pleeeeease. ;)

Dear Serhiy, please tell me how I can center the buttons. I tried to do it myself, but unfortunately without any success. Thanks. Andrea
Serhiy (Sunday, 11 August 2019 11:02)
@Andrea please use the class “text-center”

i use picture gallerys on my website. I want the gallery to be centered and not left-sided.
How can I do that?
Serhiy (Sunday, 24 November 2019 10:59)
@Karsten unfortunately, there's no option to center the module "gallery" if not using it inside the columns
Karsten Schoenberg (Sunday, 24 November 2019 11:08)
what do you mean with "using it inside the columns"?
Serhiy (Sunday, 24 November 2019 11:09)
@Karsten 3 columns and module "Gallery" inside the centered column
