    I’d like to use your photon html template for one of my client’s web site. My LLC is for-profit. So, I need to find out, first, can I use your template, which I’d like to possibly modify, enhance, etc; and, two, what exactly does “CC BY 3.0 (footer credits must remain in place)” mean. E.g. does the entire footer, “Copyright ©2019 All rights reserved | This template is made with by Colorlib” have to be left alone? Or can I break it up as long as the site has the verbiage, “This template is made with by Colorlib” somewhere in the footer?

    Thank you!

    Hello dear Colorib.
    A few months ago I bought a single template license in order to use it for the Plumber Template:
    Finally i didn’t use the specific template, but i have the .PDF file with my invoice from the purchase.
    So, is it possible to use the License that i already have for the Photon Template, or do i have to buy a new one?

    Note: Just to mention that when i bought my License i didn’ t had an account on your site.

    Thanks in advance.
    Alex P

    1. Sure thing. You can use it with Photon instead of Plumber.

    Ok, thank you very much for your fast reply.
    One more thing Mr Aigars. Do i have to upload my invoice pdf file on the server in the same directory with the rest files from my site?

  4. Hello, I was trying to install the theme on WordPress and had this message: ‘The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.’ What should I do?

    1. This is not a WordPress theme but an HTML templates that’s why you are getting this error when trying to install it in WordPress. Similar photography WordPress themes can be found here.

  5. Hi There,

    The single.html does not work on Edge and Explorer browser.
    Once I open one picture and scroll it crashes,unable to view any pic, but on Chrome is fine.
    How can this be fixed plz?



    Do yoiu speak spanish? mmmm this is the question, I would like to buy photon template but Im wondering if I can change the title texts because I need it to use it as an art gallery catalog, for example when displaying the list of the Gallery, I would like to change the titles that come out, for the names of each artist, so that in the photo it will show the photo with name of each artist and then in each artist is all the work that I have of him or her

    1. Of course, you can change content, images, titles, everything. We aren’t selling a ready-made website but a template that you can customize in any way you want.

  7. I’d love to use your Proton template but how can I move the text and the block”More photos” to the bottom of the picture? I don’t have any knowledge of css and I use Bluegriffon to edit the page.

    Thank you very much.

  8. Hi, as retired web designer now dedicated to photography I’ve tried to make a site for a friend of mine with the fantastic Photon template. All works fine but I’ve a problem. My friends has a lot of photo categories (about 24 so 24 html files) and I’ve tried to centralize the header and the footer to simplify the insert of new menu items. It works fine from desktop, but in mobile the menu only the footer is displayed but no the mobile menu.
    I’ve tried before with query.load() then with a js plugin (csi.min.js).

    Any suggestion ?

    Thank you !

  9. Hi. I’m using your Photon gallery to display my photos.I am using portrait rather than landscape photos. This works fine in Chrome, however in Firefox and Edge (only for testing purposes) the images are rotated to landscape. Can the code be changed so that the images can show portrait photos? Thanks.
