Hi there! I absolutely LOVE this theme! I actually had it from buying the corporate bundle but saw the value in it so purchased it a few days ago. I just did the update though and a few things aren’t working. It’s not letting me change setting slide buttons (ie. enable custom color, etc.). And it changed the settings I had such as having the Search Form in the Header and now it’s not.
The biggest thing is although my Theme Color settings are still showing as I chose them, it is displaying as the default theme.
I appreciate any assistance!
And again, I LOVE this theme!
Hi, because of we had update Alterna Options checkbox UI so need you reset these slide buttons (ie. enable custom color, etc.) enable setting.Our update notice had said about it.
If you there still have setting maybe your site host some setting need change, please view the post.
You also can submit a ticket with your site link, admin account, ftp admin let us help u check it.
I have a problem with theme recognizing child theme:
I created a folder – alterna-child, In Style.css entered
Theme Name: alterna child
- doesn’t do anything. But the custom header I created in the same folder – it is recognized.
WP best practice is to keep theme intact, and make all changes in Child theme.
I’ve read support forums on your site and it is not just me having this problem with using Child Themes.
If it is possible, Please provide a child theme placeholder starter file or guidance instructions for custom modifications.
Hi,we have no test with child theme, because of some user don’t know how to use child theme.
We had provide Alterna Options -> CSS & Alterna Scripts for user to custom css or scripts. It’s more easy for user.If you still have problem with child theme please use them for your theme.
Alterna is a very nice theme on its own and you have done a very good job, but I cannot use it for what I need without making custom changes to different template files – single.php, header, footer, style.css and so on.
If I make those many minor changes in different files two things will happen: 1) I will need to redo it all again after each update 2) if I make an error, it brakes the theme. And if I have child theme it falls back to Parent theme. 3) 6 month from now, how am i going to remember all custom changes in different files.
That is why Codex requires for theme developers to build themes with child theme support and users to modify child theme, not the parent theme. I mean these are just basic Codex Theme development rules.
Here is a possible solution:
1) Apparently child theme works, just doesn’t use style.css from a Parent Theme. For now, probably needs just a simple hack for this one file. What should I do for Wordpress to recognize style.css in a child theme?
(problem I think is that header.php is calling
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘template_url’); ?>/style.css” type=”text/css” media=”screen” title=”no title” charset=”utf-8”>
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_url’); ?>/style.css” type=”text/css” media=”screen” title=”no title” charset=”utf-8”>
I just don’t know how to fix using your custom hooks and other things)
2) Please tell us current Customers and future Buyers if you plan for your Parent theme to work with Child Theme in future updates and when?
3) Also, I haven’t tried, is MultiSite supported with this theme?
If customization through Child Theme per Wordpress Codex theme development guidelines is not and will not be supported, I will have to ask for a refund from Envanto, because of the reasons stated above.
Hi, I just had update theme to v2.3.1 with child theme support and test works fine, you will can update it and use it for your child theme after some hours market approved it !
Wow! I am very impressed Mr. Active Focus, that was very fast for a support request. I am very happy now))
Can I ask if this theme works with Wordpress Multi-Site?
Hi, I just had test it with Wordpress Multi-Site, it’s works fine.
Looks your language chars can’t read on comment!
Yeah, it was Russian – said: “Thank you, Comrade” – Cyrillic is not supported in comments)))
Where are you guys from? I’ve never heard of you, but then out of nowhere you come out with such a great and well designed product.
Excellent work. Congratulations.
Because I want to create a presentation website (food products, not e-commerse), I am wondering how can I rename the portfolio in product(s)?
And also the name of the portfolio category product?
However maybe it’s a silly question, but it’s useful your answer to me because I am not very familiar with wp.
Thank you in advance and best regards.

It’s ridiculous that there’s no support for this theme for bundle buyers. I get that we wouldn’t get the latest updates but we can’t even ask a question?
Hi, bundle item without support, updates.So if you need support, please first get support.Please don’t ask again with the question.
I want to sign up to your support page, but there is no “License Certificate” link to get the needed Code.
Where can I find them?
Hi, if you open register page, then will view the “Theme Purchase Code” bottom have a link named “get it”, you just click it will view how to get ‘License Certificate’.
Yes I follwes your how to, but the problem was, that I user Google Chrome. Firefox worked well with the dropdown menu, Chrome didn`t…
Hi, I used chrome it’s works.You also can tell envato support about the problem.

I went to the support forum and am logged in but still can’t see where to add a new discussion. I searched and didn’t find my answer either. Very sorry if this is the wrong place to ask a simple question…
I am just trying to change the logo top padding in my header. I tried adding css but it didn’t work. And I am not much of a coder so am not sure how to make that simple adjustment.
Hi, you need click your Confirm Email link after you register account on support forum then will view “start a new discussion” button.I had help u change support forum status now you can view the button and submit your question.

Thanks so much! Heading over there!
One thing I do not see on your basic demo is any products from the store on the homepage. Are there not shortcodes in the visual editor for WooCommerce available?
I would think if I had a store that at the least, I would like to feature some products on the homepage or the homepage slider.
If it is possible with your theme, could you change the demo to show us what it would look like before purchase?
If not possible, darn.. suppose you could just let us know then.
Hi, our shop demo home page all used shortcodes from WooCommerce provided. You will view the shortcode icon on editor when you had active WooCommerce plugin.
About these shortcodes details you also can view it throught WooCommerce doc site.

Your awesome ActiveFocus! Your Focus is Active that’s for sure! Always updating excellence to supreme deity, haha! Your theme updates I think have exceeded almost everyone’s customer expectations. I know you have for my expectations. Buying a theme from you has given me a great experience as your customer because there is always something new to look forward to! Thanks!
I have this theme included in the corporate bundle. I liked it a lot and considered buying. However, only if it supported RTL.
I still do not think this theme supports RTL. I have done my homework and added the configured rtl.css. It didn’t work. I referred back to WP Codex to make sure I did all right!
I found out that bootstrap has to me modified to allow RTL.
My question, are you to support RTL in this theme so that I can buy it?
By the way, over 500 million internet users are RTL native language speakers with only 5% of all themes supporting RTL.
We have no test with RTL, as you said you already get it from bundle so you can yourself test it and modify with RTL or get help from google search about RTL.Now we have no plan test and modify it for RTL.Thanks.
