Trying to link the social icons that are on the contact page under the Map to share – but I don’t know how to do it … I tried to add link=”https://plus.google.com/share?url=www.myurl” to the Google+ , and I tried the Facebook share link, but that was just a stab in the dark. Any thoughts?


This is example shortcode for social icon [social_icon service=”rss” url=”URL” ]

If you want to have them next to each other, don’t forget to put them all in wrapper
 [social_icons] [social_icon service="rss" url="URL" ][/social_icons]

excellent, thanks.

Bought the theme and liking it.

Although the documentation is CRAP, you display lots of cool shortcodes in on the example website but do not clarify how to use them.

For example. On the example site you have a nice standard table design. Although in the documentation you online explain how to implement a complex pricing table.

I think you need to update the example site with actual code tags to tell everyone how to get similar features.


That was harsh ;) Actually there’s no shortcode for standard table, it’s just pure html, but you’ll need to add to “table” tag class=”standard-table”

It was harsh, I apologise, had a difficult day in the office and vented my fury online, keyboard warrior!! Thanks for your response!

I still think the documentation needs updating though to make things clearer.

Great theme though, congrats!

Loving this theme so far. Nice work!

One issue I’ve come across is finding a way to filter a page to display only a specific category of blog posts. For example, my blog is displaying all my posts, but I’d like for posts tagged as ‘articles’ to show up under my ‘Articles’ page as well. I’ve seen this in other themes and was wondering if this would be possible with Centum. Thanks!


There’s no template to display blogs, I think it’s wrong approach in Wordpress themes – each category has it’s own link so that’s just unnecessary duplicating code, if you can just link from menu to specific category. Anyway there are probably some plugin that will let you include/exclude categories

Definitely love Centum so far. Clean, elegant and flexible – great work!

I do have one question, though: In the main navigation, links generally stay highlighted (e.g. green background, white font) once the user clicks it and the page has loaded. From a usability point of view this is a great feature.

On the demo site’s portfolio page however, this is not the case, the link in the navbar keeps its black background, which is not only inconsistent but also a minor usability fauxpas.

Can this be fixed?


Hi, I replied to your ticket at support forum. Thanks

I saw your reply, thanks for that! I had posted my question here first and then read about the support forum.

Apologies for the double-post :o)

I’m trying to create two sections which are portfolios. One for the four bottom (using a filter), and the portfolio doesn’t include the four on the front page.

I need to edit this div class=”headline” style=”margin-top: 5px;”>

<?php _e('Recent Projects', 'purepress'); ?>

or <?php recent_porfolios(); ?>

and also …. edit the arrow links ”>” so they only cycle through a certain filter.

Any ideas?


I’m not sure what you’re trying to achieve, and the code you’ve pasted is messed up, try to use <pre> tags to paste code.


Yeah, I’m not sure what I’m doing either, sorry to waste your time. I’m going to fool around with it and see if I can come up with something. Thanks for your response.

I upgraded the theme, and the block that displays portfolio info and the button to launch is now gone. I’ve asked before, but still don’t know how to restore it. Www.michaeldain.com


Hi, please check documentation http://www.docs.purethemes.net/centum/ – search for paragraph “Portfolio meta informations”, you’ll find there info how to enable it after update.

Hi there,

My boss noticed that when viewing a portfolio page, there isn’t way to “Pin” photos with Pinterest. Could you please let me know how to get Pinterest working for portfolio elements?

Thank you.


If I understand correctly, you want “pin it” button on your website? You can add one by pasting code generated here http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/ from “Pin It Button for Web Sites” to single-portfolio.php, or use one of many plugins for WordPress for social sites integration


I have 2 problems with the revolution slider.

1. In Firefox, the slider area is completely grey, and the actual slides show themselves far to the right, outside of the grid of the website. The Slider works perfectly in Safari and Internet Explorer, so this is a strange problem.

2. When adding longer text to the slider, the text doesnt break when it comes to the edge of the screen. It just keeps running of the slider so no one can read it.

Thanks for your help!



please open a private ticket on my support forum http://purethemes.ticksy.com/ with login details to your wp-admin, I’ll check what’s wrong.

the contact form with the contact form 7 plugin does not work correctly. the background show like a pre.


You’ve probably copied the code from documentation with “pre” tags, please check it

Hi, 1. Considering buying this theme, does it allow to create, on a page or another, a slider with featured posts from the blog ? 2. Is there only one way to show the blog, as in the demo ? No grid or multi-column ?



Hi ad1. No, there’s no option for slider with featured posts ad2. Yes, that’s the only blog layout available


Hi purethemes,

I have created a custom post type and I would like to create a page template that will display these posts.

Can you please advise which files I need to duplicate > rename >edit and put in my child theme folder?


This works for single-{posttype}.php but archive-{posttype}.php is returning 404 errors. I have flushed the permalinks but still no luck. Any ideas?


What is your posttype? Maybe it some conflict with permalinks, and you have two sites with the same link?


The names are unique. I just keep getting 404s.


great Theme.

-Regarding the social Icon, i would like to open the pages in a new windows (target = “_blank”), where do I need to make a change to do this - same thing with the button shortcode (i tried to add a target in the page code but it doesn’t work)

Thanks a lot,

Hi, great theme, very straightforward. I’ve changed the homepage 3 notice boxes to [columns] but it’s ranging them all left 30px (ish) and regardless of what I do I can’t push them over to the right and it’s all a bit off centre with the Flex Slider. Any ideas? Thanks

I’m not using the portfolio function as an actual portfolio. Is there a way to link one of the portfolio items at the bottom of the frontpage to another page, not a detailed version of a portfolio?


You’re asking about “related porfolio” section? If yes, that’s not possible, you’d need to put there manually HTML code or write your own shortcode for that

Hi there,

Great Theme.. I want to add the WP Plugin Hupso Social Buttons but having trouble with it to put it next to the Tags, Comments. Even adding left of Continue Reading on the Posts would be great.

Another thing is that i want to change the Navbar with another Navbar. But some Classes makes me trouble cause i cant find them in any File

<div class="menu-main-menu-container"> <ul id="menu-main-menu" class=""> <li id="menu-item-321" class="menu-item menu-item-type-custom menu-item-object-custom menu-item-321"> Thanks for your help.</li></ul></div>

The menu is generated via wp_nav_menu() function, so it’s rather difficult to change there anything, you’d need to write your own Walker_class. As for the plugin integretion, does it have any function you could put manually to display? If yes, then in loop.php and single-content.php put it inside div class=”post-meta”

Excellent Job man :) Keep it Up


Thanks :)

Hi, I have had a lot of fun customizing our website to our needs using Centum! I’m really happy with the overal design so far! Good job, again ;-)

But I have this idea to create a different style menu; like this one: http://cdn.digirati.nl/upload/menu.png Would you happen to have any idea on how to realise this (relativly) easy?


Wow! Thanks for the advice! First result is online :)http://www.digirati.nl

Great Theme. I am having a hard time trying to set up the Bolg Section. I want to rename it NEWS, have done so in the Theme options panel. Now I dont know what to do from there. Do I create a page titled news? And is it the default template? And what about categories. I have categories 2011, 2012, 2013. How do i go about this. Can you kindly provide a step by step process on how to do this. I am completley lost and confused.

Thank you. kind regards

I’m trying to find the area were the testimonial speech bubbles can be configured. Is there a shortcode for this?

Yes, example:
[testimonials] [testimonial author="Michael" job="Flash Developer"]Posuere erat a ante venenatis dapibus posuere velit aliquet. Duis llis, est non coeammodo luctus, nisi erat porttitor ligula, egeteas laciniato odiomo sem.[/testimonial]
[testimonial author="John" job="Web Developer"] Integer eu libero sit amet nisl vestibulum semper. Fusce nec porttitor massa. In nec neque elit. Curabitur malesuada ligula vitae purus ornare onec etea magna diam varius. [/testimonial] [/testimonials]
