Hi There,

Thanks for the awesome theme. I’m trying to import the settings xml file and keep getting an error message that says the file cannot be imported. Is this a known issue? How can I resolve this?


Thanks for your purchase. You should be importing a file named sample-data.xml file and not the settings xml. Pls send me a email at LiveMesh.themes@gmail.com with a temp login in case you still have trouble.

I’m thinking about purchasing Enigmatic, but have a question. Is it possible to change the background color of the slider? I’d like to have a video in the slider like the demo site has but I want the background to be a different color than black.

If you are referring to the revolution slider, certainly yes. Almost any aspect of the slider can be configured with revolution slider. With other sliders too, it is possible to customize with some minor CSS code. Thanks.

Hi there, for some reason the shortcode options aren’t adding properly, there seems to be a bug in it that won’t let me add anything at all selecting it, clicking ‘insert’ only makes the page jump down slightly and doesn’t add any code at all.

Can you advise?

The latest version should work without issues. If you have a reason to use the older versions, pls see this post for help -


Hi guys,

I really need a 5 column layout but it seems to be the only one missing (the ‘fiv_col’ shortcode does not work). Can you please advise how to set up a ‘one_fifth’ layout please?


You will need to do the same using CSS. If you provide me the link to the page which has the required elements which need to be in five column layout, I can suggest the required change. You just need to have a CSS class like one_fifth which looks like this -

.one_fifth { width: 20%; }

Hi, I’m working with a client who purchased your theme who wants to remove the entry-summary for each of the home page portfolio thumbnails. I can’t seem to find where to remove:

<div class="entry-summary">   Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua....</div> <!-- .entry-summary -->

Please add the following Custom CSS into theme options -

.entry-summary { display: none; }

You would have used the [show_post_snippets] shortcode probably. You can just have a parameter display_text=false to disable summary like this -

[show_post_snippets post_type="portfolio" number_of_columns=4 post_count=4 image_size="small" show_meta=false layout_class="post-snippets full-width-snippets" display_text=false]

or through CSS -

.post-snippets .entry-summary { display: none; }


I need 2 different portfolio pages. One has to show posts with a certain category. The other has to show posts from a different category. Is this possible with Enigmatic template?

Thank you.

Thanks for your interest. What you are looking for is possible – with a shortcode which takes category as argument. It displays the portfolio items just like you see on portfolio pages.


I have in my portfolio:

[show_post_snippets post_type=”portfolio” number_of_columns=3 post_count=6 image_size=’medium’ show_meta=”false” layout_class=”post-snippets full-width-snippets” show_meta=”false” layout_class=”post-snippets full-width-snippets” excerpt_count=100 display_text=”true” show_excerpt=”true” hide_thumbnail=”false”]

And chosen category has the following code:

taxonomy=portfolio_category tag_ID=21 post_type=portfolio

But I do not know how to tell the ShotCode call my chosen category .. :(

You will need to use taxonamy=”portfolio_category” and terms=”comma-separated-slugs-of-portfolio-category” to make this work.


I was trying to insert shortcode to my page, but it didn’t work. I saw the error message “TypeError: window.tinyMCE.execInstanceCommand is not a function”.

Could you give me some advice on that? Thanks.

Thanks a lot! It helps!

Hi there,

I wrote the above query with an account that is not with the template I purchased Enigmatic, so ask again with the account you bought Enigmatic.

Need 2 portfolios, one post in a category, and another with a different category of post.

I have a shorcode serving me for the two portfolios:

[show_post_snippets post_type=”portfolio” number_of_columns=3 post_count=6 image_size=’medium’ show_meta=”false” layout_class=”post-snippets full-width-snippets” show_meta=”false” layout_class=”post-snippets full-width-snippets” excerpt_count=100 display_text=”true” show_excerpt=”true” hide_thumbnail=”false”]

And, for example, one of the categories is:

taxonomy=portfolio_category tag_ID=21 post_type=portfolio

How I can enter the category as an argument?

Thank you.

This is very important for my business. Because if I have not set a searching and have not enough knowledge of PHP. But if I have those portfolios with certain caregorías chosen by me, and are sortables. I have what I need.

Enigmatic is an excellent template. If I get this I’m asking you, is perfect for my business.

If you need that type of flexibility, can you pls consider using Essential Grid plugin by ThemePunch. It is an excellent plugin with lots of options to configure your portfolio. Pls have a look at the same before proceeding with customization.

For customization purposes, you can create sortable templates which pull in items from specific categories. It is not too difficult to come up with two templates which pull items from different categories or pull two different set of items from multiple categories.

Thank you. I’ll try.

Is your theme protected against the Revolution Slider Plugin critical security flaw?: http://wptavern.com/critical-security-vulnerability-found-in-wordpress-slider-revolution-plugin-immediate-update-advised

The flaw is not something to do with the theme itself. It should have been addressed already but if you need to upgrade the revolution slider, pls send me an email via my profile page http://themeforest.net/user/LiveMesh#contact and I will send the updated plugin bundle. Thanks


I’ve used your Agile theme and loved it. this one looks nice, but very similar. can you let me know what the major differences are between Agile and Enigmatic?



With Agile theme, the framework is much improved and feature rich with many more shortcodes, multiple custom post types, visual composer elements, modern shortcode builder etc. Enigmatic is a great template but lacks some of the above mentioned features. Thanks again for your interest.

Hello, I bought Enigmatic Template and I don’t know how to use it. Do you have any tutorial that explain how to put the content? Thanks

Pls go through the theme documentation which is available in the theme bundle itself. Also you can go through the below video tutorial link , talks about setting up my recent theme Extinct but steps are pretty much the same for Squash/Enigmatic themes and hence you should have no issues.- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iO6FmlrerS4

Hi guys,

Can you please advise the issue with this site?

http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/ The client just advised me it’s not working. Checked the back end and there’s all sorts of random text in the text editor.

The site isn’t working and upon checking the theme the image isn’t showing there either so I presume it’s a theme option but can you help?



I am seeing these errors (this is more of a server configuration issue). Pls check -

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/css/prettyPhoto.css?ver=4.0 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/css/icon-fonts.css?ver=4.0 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/style.css?ver=4.0 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/css/responsive.css?ver=4.0 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/css/animate.css?ver=4.0 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error) http://www.omni-risk.co.uk/wp-content/themes/enigmatic/css/skins/skin.php?skin=default&ver=4.0 .....

there are many more errors like this. Basically no CSS and JS files are being loaded by the browser due to 500 error.

I noticed that the extinct and enigmatic themes gives me issues when I install the ithemes sync plugin for Backup Buddy. any ideas? I sent it to the forum also

uppereast – I have never used this plugin and never tested the theme with this plugin and hence cannot say for sure. It is hard for us to support all third party plugins. You can contact the plugin authors and see if they know what’s happening. Thanks

I have issues disabling the slider on the home page – how do you do that?


meteorite Author Team

Pls go to Themeoptions -> General tab, and check the “Disable sliders in homepage ” check box.

quick question – want to purchase the theme, but want to know if I can include either a) a much larger thumbnail in the “recent posts” shortcode with the text on the right, or b) some of the post text in the boxed blog shortcode you have. I’m wanting to feature blog posts pretty prominently on the front page without making it a full blog page.

let me know.



Thanks for your purchase. Regarding your query – yes you can do b by changing the attribute values for the shortcode to include or exclude post summary. I am referring to the first shortcode in the page -


I was wondering is it safe to update the newest WP for your theme?

Yes – it is safe to update to the latest 4.2 update. Have tested the theme with that version. Thanks for checking.

Hi, is the theme vulnerable to the security issues announced a couple weeks back?



There are two libraries we use – Option Tree and TGM plugin activation which may be vulnerable although the authors claim it is not. We are patching all of our themes anyway with the latest versions just in case. You should see an update by this weekend for Squash/Enigmatic themes. Updates for all other themes have been submitted already.

Love the theme. I can’t seem to find the child theme. Please advise?

Pls email me via profile page contact form -http://themeforest.net/user/livemesh#contact and I can send one.

Hi. Is there anyway to have automatic updates to my site? Where do I set that?


msattolo Purchased

Eventually I have already translated other themes, but I understood this one came Spanish ready….


msattolo Purchased

Again, I found that the es_Es are already in the language folder for the theme, and but when I open them with Poedit no translation is there. Are you providing the spanish translation somewhere? Is this being shared in a community forum?

Sorry if we mislead you somewhere in our description of the theme – it was not intentional. The translation itself does not exist and we do not know anyone who has already translated the theme to Spanish.

Hi, finally getting around to a project for which I can use your theme. When I look at the demo using ajax for portfolio items it seem no different than the portfolio pages without ajax. In other words, seems to do page refresh when clicking on a portfolio item. I would expect the portfolio thumbnails to slide down and then load a portfolio detail above the thumbnails. Can you please confirm that ajax is working on the demos?

I should add that the ajax portfolio was the reason I purchased this theme in the first place.

I am sorry to say that the functionality you were looking for does not exist in this theme. The word Ajax portfolio was used to indicate that the portfolio items can be lazily loaded via ajax without refreshing the portfolio page.

If this functionality is critical for you, you may have to look for another theme. I will approve a refund for the theme if you apply for the same with Envato Support.

Thank you. I could not ask for more than that. I have submitted the request.
