3. Yes
4. Yes
5. Yes - it is enabled, you can see it at the bottom right.
6. No
7. No
8. No
9. It is easy to do it but I don't think the design is suitable for this.

Does the native WP page preview functionality still work when trying to preview changes made to already published pages? Some themes break this functionality without mentioning it :)


Hi there,

It works. I wonder how someone works building the website without “preview changes” :).

Hi, Can I get an install that looks exactly like the demo?

Also… can you elect to have both an icon and title for a menu item?

Hi there,

Thank you for your interest in David & Goliath! Yes, you can install the demo content from the admin panel and your website will like the demo.

Regards: Nikolay Totev

It is not possible at the moment. I think the menu bar will look a bit odd as it will be much wider.


After installing the latest update to the theme i get the following notification in WP: “The following plugins need to be updated to their latest version to ensure maximum compatibility with this theme: LayerSlider WP and Vamtam Push Menu.” Doesn’t updates for these plugins come with the update of the theme, or do i have to do something else?

Yes, the updates come with the theme, but due to them being distributed as separate zips and not integrated with the theme (due to the new ThemeForest theme requirements), the updates of the bundled plugins are not automated. Instead, what you need to do, is delete the plugins’ files via FTP and use the plugin installer, similarly to the first time you installed the theme.

As usual, remember to make a backup before any updates.

Hi Vantam,

Amazingly beautiful theme :)

Do you have any experience with Buddypress integration? Wondering if it would be possible using this theme?


Thank you so much for your words! We have already a client trying to integrate BuddyPress. It is working nicely with a few exceptions – sidebars don’t show up for example :). You will need some coding I think. We may include support for BuddyPress if a few more people want it.

Regards: Nikolay Totev

Great job, congratulations. I bought it and use it in one of our projects. The only thing I do not like (say negative) effect slider is down the page. But everything perfect.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I would appreciate if you email us with a little bit more details about the things you do not like.

Hi Team, looks like a great theme, does it support RTL?

Hi there,

Thank you for your interest in David & Goliath! I am afraid it doesn’t support RTL at this stage.

Best Regards: Nikolay Totev

I am not looking to use this for e-commerce. Can I remove the shopping cart if I purchase this?

Can I make my custom logo any size without messing up the layout of the site?

Hi there,

Thank you for your interest in David & Goliath. The shopping cart is a plugin, so if you do not need it , you don’t install it. You can set the width of the header from the admin panel, so you can fit any logo size.

Regards: Nikolay Totev

Is there a way to increase the width of the sidebar? I need something that can accommodate 300×250 ad banners.

Hi mate,

The sidebars are 1/5 of the website width in the demo. You can change it to 1/4 or 1/3 of the site’s width from the Admin Panel.

Regards: Nikolay Totev


Great theme!

I’d like to purchase but I have one question. The description says there will be an Oct 25th Update or New version for “David & Goliath 5.” If I purchase now, will the update be free? Or will it be better to wait?


Hi there and thank you for your interest in David & Goliath! The update is available for download now. You get all the updates for free regardless of when the theme is bought.

Hi Cody,

There’s a big problem with my website. On mobile devices it looks very bad. Some source code of the shortcodes is displayed.

On desktop/browsers it looks good, but I’ve tested it with blackberry & android phones and it looks too bad.

Under the slider it appears something like: [column width=”1/1” last=”true” title=”undefined”...

Hi mate,

Thank you for purchasing David & Goliath! It is tested on Android – Samsung Galaxy and Google Nexus and work nicely. Can you provide the model and the OS of the Android device?

I will try to get hold of blackberry device :) in the meantime.

I will kindly ask you to open a ticket in our Help Desk, since not all support staff have access to Themeforest.
