Pre-sale questions:

1. Am I able to break each page into 4 columns? I’m seeing it in the demo under ‘Pages’ -> ‘Shortcodes’, but it goes up to 3 columns only.

2. Am I able to add a Image Slider? If the theme doesn’t come with such a function, is it compatible with plugins like NextGEN Gallery plugin?

3. Am I able to add icons like the ‘Progress bar’, but icons with links to other pages instead?

Thanks! Alvin


Unfortunately, from my theme you can not create such an element like your image. :( However, I think you can use some image this case instead of an icon.


Is it possible for me to make a section of a page into columns to put the images in?

Sure. You can divide your page into columns and put images. :)

Hello there!

I bought your theme (1.8 version) and it looks great and very customizable. Most of plugins work very well. But I’ve been dealing with some problems:

1) Why I can’t get a proper sticky header? I have the on tab on the theme options panel. But now it’s not working, I mean the header it’s not at the top.

2) How can I center the post titles on the main/home page?

3) I have no idea how to put the same social icons displayed on a single post page, but right below the content of a post in the homepage. Is there a way to do it, please?

4) I tried it, but jetpack plugin doesn’t work (fatal exception).

Thank you.



Thanks. Everything works perfectly now. But teo more things:

1) I sent you a private message with my admin data and my password if you like to check the compatibility with Jetpack plugin in my dashboard.

2) I could put an image on the background, but there are two blank spaces remaining on top lef and right when I scroll the sticky header. And also the image doesn’t fill the arrow pointing to the sidebar.

I attach an image: https://38.media.tumblr.com/7479ca04b3e5a787dfa180aebc290f98/tumblr_nhnr9nLa5O1s5bgbgo1_1280.jpg


The internet speed in my country is really slowww these days due to Internet cable cut so I can not access your site right now. Sorry for this inconvenience. I’ll help you to fix ASAP.



Hello guys. I have a simple question: I’m trying to change the footer logo link without any success:

from this:

 <a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url() );?>" rel="home"><img src="<?php echo esc_url( $smof_data['footer-logo'] );?>" /></a> 

to this:

<a href="http://laestaciontacoronte.es"><img src="<?php echo esc_url( $smof_data['footer-logo'] );?>" /></a>

I’m doing something wrong?

thank you!

I detected that your site was using this plugin. I think it’s the reason. :)

oh boy, sorry.

Now I find the solution. I was create a child theme with Orbisius Theme Creator. I was go there and edit the footer file. Now everything works!

thank you for you patience.


You’re welcome! :) Just enjoy the item & support.

Congrats & BR.


Hi, I bought this theme in November 2014. I love it but didn’t have time to start working over my blog. Yesterday I got back to it and since then I’ve been struggling with a blog site – I see no posts. If I enable ‘static page’ I see my menu and that’s all, when I change it to ‘blog site’ – it’s all blank. No idea how to sort it out. Could you please give me a hand?

Wow! Congratulations! ;)

Antoher problem (I feel really unlucky :) ) – now I cannot access my admin panel, tried to fix it, but with no results. Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_theme_data() in /home/olka/domains/romaniaczka.pl/public_html/wp-admin/index.php on line 45. I will keep on trying to sort it out myself, but if you can have a look after you’ll have come back, I’ll do appreciate it :)

Hello. Please double check again, I can access your site & your admin normally :)

Pre-sale question:

I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the sidebar sticky (like permanently there on every page) rather than having to activate it by clicking on it. If so I really think I’m going to buy this theme, it looks great!


Do you mean it’s like this: http://blank.withemes.com/?demo=2


I purchased the Blank Theme yesterday. I really liked the site layouts (boxed, sticky header, etc.) and the post types in the live preview. However, when I installed the theme, I only have a single page with none of the templates in the live preview. Is there a way that I can install the live preview on my site and then turn off layouts and pages I don’t want, while modifying the pages that I do want?

Thank you!


Hi Cuong Tran!

I think I’m almost there. :) I wanted to use the Boxed Layout, because I really like the photo border on either side. But when I look for it in the site content (back end), I can’t find it. And I think I must be doing something wrong, because when I look for it on the front end, I can see it, but when I click the link I go to this page:


I really wanted to use the Boxed Layout as the basis for my site, and I figured I could modify some of the existing pages using Visual Composer.

Please help!

Thank you :)


Hi Daniel

Please go to Appearance > Theme Options > Style to select boxed layout. However, I don’t assure the compatibility between my item & Visual Composer.

Cheers, Cuong Tran

Cool! I understand.


Hi! Thanks for nice theme. I want to ask how can I change spacing in main navigation menu, it is too wide for me but I see no options for it. Is it CSS trick?


Hi. Could you please show me your site?

Why do you put so many menu items instead of organizing them into submenus?

Sure, it is not done yet, www.arialigi.com

Hi. I think this code should help. Please add this code to Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

#mainnav .menu > ul > li > a {height:30px;line-height:30px;}

Dear Cuong Tran,

I’ve translated the theme as you described in the documentation – but where can I find “You may also like”? This is not included in the po-file. I would like to translate this line too.

In the footer of the current version the html line-breaks don’t work anymore – all text is in one line. Do you know how to fix this?

Thank you and kind regards, Stefan

Hi Stefan, sorry for the delay on your reply.

1/ May I forgot that phrase. Let help me to fix this by openning up 2 files: blank/single-full.php and blank/single-half.php and look for:

You may also like

Edit it as you wish and save the file.

2/ In footer.php file, let replace




Hope this helps, Cuong Tran

Hello, having installed the theme successfully, the page turns to real blank, which I mean it’s totally white page, nothing to show. Why did this happened? Thanks

Dear Author,

I’ve been having problems trying to activate the theme in my website hosted at Bluehost. The error message I received is:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home3/plugco/public_html/somenotes/wp-content/themes/blank/inc/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 966

It looks that the problem is with the Php version.

Could you help me here, please?

Thank you.

Hi! Two quick answers:

1-Can I change the post meta from 4 blanks to 2 (I just want to appear the number of comments and the category, but if I choose these two in The options the blanks are not nice)

2-Can I change the whape where the number of pages are on? Besides, I have this problem: the numbers are leaning :( THANK YOU!

Hi. Thanks for purchasing my item.

1/ Please open blank/functions.php file and go to ~ line 596 to edit the code. There’re 4 cells, started by <td and ended by </td> I think you’ll understand how it works and edit it as you wish.

2/ Please open a new support ticket at the support site:


Please provide me your site info so I can have a look. I don’t quite understand your issue.

Thank you. Cuong Tran

How do I go about making the Featured Image full width on both the Index page and Single Post pages.

Hi man. Please follow these steps

1/ Open up blank/functions.php file and look for:

add_image_size('thumb-940',940,350,true);    // full thumbnail
    add_image_size('thumb-940-nocrop',940,99999,false);    // full thumbnail no crop

and change 940 to your site content width (eg, 1100px)

2/ Use this plugin to rebuild all thumbnails

An easier way (CSS trick): Please add this code to Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.article .full-thumb img, .single .thumb img {width:100%;}

I would recommend you to use the first way.

Best Regards, Cuong Tran

I absolutely love this theme. It is elegant and simple, exactly what I wanted for my portfolio and blog. I have a question on Dropcaps. I have images of my own that I would like to use in place of those provided. You mentioned to a previous poster that you can provide a few lines of code to make that possible. Any chance I could get my hands on that code?

Thank you again for the perfect theme.

Hi man. Thanks for your kind words on my item ;)

To replace Blank dropcaps, please open up folder


on your server, you’ll see a list of letters. Let replace these images by your own.

Hope this helps, Cuong Tran

You’re the best. Thank you so much!

Can I add homepage slider, featured sections (like categories) and instagram feeds to the blog? Something like this: http://screencast.com/t/7qC0LH1r82oz this: http://screencast.com/t/57fW8B1GM5Q and this http://screencast.com/t/T44HUtkD

Is it possible on this own theme or with plugins? Thanks

Hi man, thanks for your interest.

Unfortunately, these features are not available for Blank theme. You can only use Blank as a standard blog.

Cheers, Cuong Tran

Hi! I’ve installed the theme, but when I preview it I see only empty page. Hosting support tells that “the theme itself is throwing an error” Help!

Thank you very much, Cuong. Great theme, great support :-)

Nevermind, @srebso ;)

Hello. I love your Blank theme. I looked through hundreds of themes to find it. Blank is what I was looking for. I have a question, though. I am using the short code on my Home page to display “recent work,” (my portfolios) ([recent_work number=”9”/]) but the pagination doesn’t work. When I click on “next” or on page 1 or 2 or 3, the Home page reloads the most recent portfolios on page 1. This pagination works in preview from the edit page—the pages change from page 1, to page 2, to page 3 and “next” works to advance the pages. I think the pagination does not work for a visitor to the site because I have made my Home page my “static page” on the customization and/or general settings page. If I DO NOT set my Home page as the “static page,” but make it a regular page, the pagination works. Pagination works just fine on my Blog pages where I have enough posts to fill a couple pages. I supposed the pagination doesn’t work on a staid page because by its very nature a static page is designed to be one “static” page.

Is there a way to fix this so the pagination works for my “recent works” on my Home page as a static page? I would like to show my recent work on my Home page as my static page. If a fix is not possible, is there a way to remove the pagination feature at the bottom of the portfolios I have set as my 9 most recent works? It would be better to have no pagination option showing to a visitor to my site if the pagination does not work—it only frustrates the visitor if the pagination doesn’t take them to page 2 or page 3, and if “next” does not work.

I can format the Home page as a portfolio page and not as the default page and the pagination works, but then I have a full-width page and I am not able to show “recent posts” using a short code on the Home page below my 9 portfolios (or how ever many I select)—only above them. I like the narrower page, the look of wider margins of white on the home page, which is the default format.

Also, I was wondering how “recent work” is defined. Is it defined within certain date parameters? Is it possible to set (narrow or widen) what is defined as “recent work”? Might this be a way to limit how many “recent works” are shown on a page? Where would this be set?

I ask this because it appears that if I show “recent work” using the short code this includes all portfolios, every one, that I have ever created and they are displayed on as many pages as it takes to show all of them. Limiting what is considered “recent work’ to nine might be a way to remove pagination, because there would be no more work to display as “recent work.”

Hi, Pre-sale question :

1 – What about newsletter? is there a newsletter widget in this theme? 2 – can i easily insert frames or anything else to include advertising on my pages?


Hi @pefoungowo

1/ For Newsletter, you can use Jetpack Newsletter or Mailchimp for WordPress plugin. I saw many customers used those with my theme.

2/ You can insert advertising code into the sidebar easily, 100% sure :)

Hi ! Would it be possible to have full posts instead of excerpts on the page?

Hi Robotstardust

Please go to Theme Options > Blog > Display Content or Excerpt and select to display Content instead of Excerpt. :)


hi, will your theme work with the most recent version of wordpress (4.5)? ty!

Hi rfrans13,

Blank is totally compatible with WordPress 4.5.1. We’ll always make compatibility for our themes with the newest WP versions.



Hi there,

Just wanting to know. It says “boxed layout” however it does not appear as a boxed layout on the mobile version of the website and that’s what we’re really after. The desktop version looks fantastic with the boxed layout but we really need it to carry over to the mobile version and I cannot find any settings on the theme options to set it for the mobile version. Can you please help as we assumed “boxed layout” would apply to the entire website, not just the mobile.

Hi ytapportlincoln,

Thank you for purchasing our items. The reason we do not enable boxed layout on mobile is: the mobile screen was too narrow, we need some space for content, padding and some extra space to show background somehow. It narrows down the text content to a very small area, especially on narrow-screen devices (such as iPhone 5).

However, if you wish to make mobile verson boxed, please open a support ticket here: https://withemes.ticksy.com/ with request to add custom code to make site boxed on mobile (specify screen). Our team is willing to help you out.

Kind Regards,
