Hi Flow,

Really great work on the Daisho theme! It’s served me well for a few years now.

I recently had a problem uploading and embedding youtube videos so I updated to the latest version of Daisho.

This was an automatic update via Envato toolkit, which overwrote the original install. Without a child theme. I’ve been through and tried to replicate my settings, but all of the portfolio items are now stacked upon each other, and none of the filters work. There is no movement as there was before.


I’d really appreciate some help – I’ve spent hours trying to figure this out.

thanks in advance



Pages used to have “Description” custom field but it conflicted with plugins that chose the same name for their custom field and it’s been changed. It’s a poor choice of the name in the theme and plugins.

Please use “Project settings” box rather than “Custom Fields” one to update the meta data of each project. This mechanism hasn’t been changed from v1.0 up to current v2.1 and it should work the same way all the time.

The only field that has been renamed is the “Description” custom field. For a couple of months there was a time when both worked (so that people have some time to shift from one to another) but I had to eventually remove the older one and only the new prefixed version “flow_post_description” remained.

This won’t be changed again and if you have only a couple of projects then it’s going to be the fastest to copy and paste that value from “Custom Fields” box to “Project settings” box and resave each project. If you have many posts (like 50+) then plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-field-bulk-editor/ may be helpful.


Hi Flow,

I have custom field bulk editor installed – and I can’t find any simple instructions. I think the assumed knowledge is above me at the moment. Sorry.

Could you kindly instruct me how to make these changes en masse? Currently my site is up, but with no descriptions, dates, client details of any kind (all text on portfolio pages has been hidden).

thanks again, great support



The only custom field that had to be renamed was the one called “Description”. If more fields are affected please create a support ticket and I’ll take a look at it. Please add your WordPress login and password to your profile information.

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience this change caused but it was absolutely necessary. Since “All in One SEO Pack” and possibly other popular plugins use the same custom field name I couldn’t create any script that would convert that automatically.


Great theme! I’m having trouble viewing text on smartphones on this page:


How can I fix it?

Thank you, Andrea.


When I enter that page on a mobile phone it works almost fine. There are a couple of empty paragraphs that increase white space and /modules/shortcode-content-slider/content-slider.css is modified. It sets line-height to 0 for one of the elements which makes some words overlap. Once these two are corrected it will work fine.

Hi Flow, I purchased your awesome theme on version 1.8.1. Was working without any problem until I updated to Wordpress 4.0, and the portfolio uploader don’t work anymore. After download the 2.1 version, and after the installation, I found that all my site design was lost. Could you give me some help or maybe pointing me to any documentation to update the theme without losing the setup? Really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!


In January 2013 WordPress added the same drag and drop uploader we were using (Plupload library) to the core so I removed our one soon after that. Since Daisho 1.9.5 SuperSlide Editor is gone and only the default WordPress editor is left. You can read more about that here: http://support.forcg.com/topic/daisho-changelog

If you’re updating from very old Daisho versions (v1.8.1 is rather old), please have a look at the bottom of http://support.forcg.com/topic/how-to-update-a-theme — there are some minor changes in the back-end configuration that have to be done after such update. It’s nothing major, just a few options.

The above minor changes in the options seem to not be the cause of what happened in your case. You probably had your modifications done in the parent theme and therefore when updating the parent theme they will be gone. WordPress created child themes that allow you to do changes separately and they won’t be lost (or at least most of them won’t be lost and if some are lost then it’s easy to restore them) after you update the parent theme.

If that’s the case this is what you can do now:
  • Restore v1.8.1 (just the theme folder will be sufficient).
  • If you have WordPress 4.0.1 and Daisho 2.1 installed that’s fine. Please create a child theme for this theme now and activate it.
  • Please go to your v1.8.1 and move all the modifications you’ve made there to the child theme. If you have original v1.8.1 files somewhere on your computer then many text editors (like Notepad++) allow you to use “compare” function to compare two files and see what’s been changed.

Normally updating from 1.8.1 to 2.1 should take a few minutes (typically 10–15 minutes) but if you need to restore custom modifications then depending on their complexity it can take from 30 minutes to an hour or more.

Please let me know if you have any further questions about that. I only provided you general information so far because details depend on this particular case. You can create a support ticket if you’d like to provide your URL or discuss that further.

Hello Flow,

Great theme. One of the very few themes over which I had no second thoughts while buying. But I have kind of struck a dead end here. And I am really counting on you to help me out here.

My url is http://pro.thatleo.com/ You mus thave noticed the menu items are not showing any icons.

Also, this post here: http://pro.thatleo.com/manage-multiple-wordpress-sites-easily/ The social sharing buttons have no icons in them, and when you click the images in the post, they do not pop up, rather they open in a new link.

All this happened after I used W3 Total Cache + Amazon S3 & CloudFront. I just need to know the files types i need to upload to Amazon S3 so that all those 3 things – 1) Menu Icons 2) Social Icons 3) Images opening in a lightbox – work properly.

Thank you.


Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad that you like the theme!

http://cdn.pro.thatleo.com/wp-content/themes/daisho/modules/fonts/websymbols/websymbols-regular-webfont.eot – please check your .htaccess file and the configuration files of the HTTP server. Some files have denied access.

I uploaded the .eot file and still the menu isn’t fixed.

Please make sure that all other files can be accessed as well.

hi, love the theme! before buying i need to know a couple of things. 1. is it possible to change the number of elements in the portfolio on the landingpage? 2. is it possible to remove the custom icons in main menu?


1. Sure. It will display your selected categories of portfolio posts. You can also set the size of each thumbnail or make the sizes random.

2. Yes, it’s enough to not specify them in [Appearance > Menus]. Other related adjustments can be found in the FAQ.

Hey Flow! I’ve been using Daisho for a while now and love it. I’m having a little issue with the Media Library and Slide Management. I can’t seem to see or select any of my images in the media library.

I’m on Daisho 1.9.2 btw..

Flow Author

SuperSlide Editor has been removed in v1.9.5 because WordPress introduced its improved media library in January 2013 and our mechanism was no longer necessary.

WordPress 4.1, 4.0 and as far as I know also 3.9 and 3.8 are no longer fully compatible with Daisho 1.9.2. 95% of the theme scripts may be compatible but 5% aren’t and if there is some JavaScript error then it may cause everything to not work.

The best solution would be to update to the newest theme version. Its structure is much superior to all 1.x versions.

More information about updating:

Updates for Daisho any time soon?

Flow Author

Currently its structure is as new as the one present in the 2014/2015 default WordPress themes. It means that you can simply keep using it for a long time (up to like 2020) because it’s fast, secure, optimized for search engines and social media services, uses up-to-date HTML5 and WordPress recommendations.

I’ll update it after WordPress 4.1 is available because it introduces a couple of useful functions.

What I would like to focus on are new features and not the improvements to its general structure but we’re still working on these features.

Hello, i’m concerned about updating your beautiful theme from 1.9 to 2.1. what is the best procedure you would suggest me for updating your theme?

Flow Author

Please follow http://support.forcg.com/topic/how-to-update-a-theme

Since 1.9 is more than two years old please make sure to read #6998 as well.

Updating shouldn’t be problematic. Some options have been moved to better places, some options (like favicon) have been removed because you can do that with a plugin and some options have been added. If you have any questions, let me know.

Hi great theme, I’m having trouble with the way images are displayed on mobile. I used the visual composer plugin, single image element, and have the image size setting set to “full”. Works perfectly on desktop, but the images don’t rescale to the width of a mobile devices screen. How do I fix to rescale to 100% width of screen size of mobile devices?

Great theme! I got a bug in my .css but I don’t know where to edit to het it fix. As you can see on the screenshots, under the lines the space is to short. On original theme this is bigger.

How can I fix this?



Flow Author
Can I have your URL, please? On line 713 in style.css you’ll find:
.page-header {
    clear: both;
    margin-bottom: 50px;

Something must be overwriting this. Maybe some plugin. You can change margin-bottom: 50px; to margin-bottom: 50px !important; to force the default theme value.

I buy visual composer but I can’t update ! when I updated to VC 4.4.1 I have a blank page ! please update the theme with VC.

Flow Author

You don’t have to buy VC separately.

You can download the newest development version on http://support.forcg.com/bb-templates/kakumei-flow/updates/download.php — I update VC and other plugins about every 60-90 days.

Currently VC included with themes from ThemeForest doesn’t have automatic updates.

Daisho 2.1 should be compatible with VC 4.4.1. If you continue to have a white page please create a support ticket and I’ll take a look at it.
