help! Hi Matyushen, I have the same problem what toon59. I read for configure mi server for SVG in but not how to do for the server to send the HTTP header: Content Type: image / svg + xml. I guess the server is enabled for .svg since I tested the object and embed html tags in the index.php for test .svg and then load the magnifying glass .svg but I’m not sure if svg is enabled on server. I can not manage mime types from my cpanel and I have already been in touch with my hosting provider to confirm me if svg is enabled on the server. On the other hand the timer does not work on iphone or ipad, any ideas?

everything else is working ok and I love the template. great job.

take a wire because it is urgent.

thank you very much in advance.

Well Matyushen, now and do nothing apart from .htaccess everything is working ok. Strange, something tells me that the hosting provider has changed the Apache configuration because if not, no explanation.

I’m happy.

Thank you very much for your support.

True, though not worth it, it seems interesting to work with svg and so I wanted to go all the way with this and it is rare as solved …

Howdy! The update is live, feel free to check it out.

Hey there!

I love the theme, but I'm having a problem.

I tried to upload the theme with FileZilla FTP, but no luck. So I sent the zip of the theme to the boss man. Boss man tried to upload it, and received …

"The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet."

How can we fix this? I looked through the files that I have, and I couldn’t locate a style.css file. THanks for the help.

Hi! Thanks for purchase. Are you trying to install it on Wordpress? This is not a theme, you can’t install it anywhere. It’s just a template.

I do not see and answer for that: How can you install your template in a different subdirectory?? I have a WP instalation and when someone writes I do not want to see the main directory but the essence directory I have created at while I am working on the main. What should I write and on what archive to point it there? Thanks for the help.

Hello, This is not a WordPress theme/plugin. If you want to display “Coming Soon” page while your site is under development, you should use some plugin for that. Here is a very good one It will let you set a redirect from your site to any other address or display custom page. Good luck & thanks for your purchase!

Looks amazing! Cheers!;


Hi Matyushen, I’m confused—I purchased this product thinking it was a WP coming soon page, but from the above comments, you mentioned that it’s not. How do you use this template then?

Hi! I’m really sorry that you’ve purchased my template by accident. But you should have checked the description before you buy. This item is listed in “Site Templates” directory, not in WordPress Themes or Plugins. And this item has proper description where you can read “Essence is fully responsive Coming Soon / Under Construction HTML5 & CSS3 Template based on Twitter Bootstrap.”

Hi Matyushen, Thanks for your reply back. I did read the description but am new to all of this and confused template with actual theme :/. Do you know of any way that I can use your template as a WP theme? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I’m sorry, that’s not possible. There is a documentation included with this template, you can read there about how to use the template. Feel free to ask here if you’ll still have questions. Good luck!

Hi, nice template! I tried adding fullname and location field to the template following the instructions you gave to westla311 about 2years ago. Everything was working well until i get to part where i need to edit ‘store-address.php’ file in ‘inc’ folder. then i realized the link to instruction is coming up with error 404 on snippi. please help. 2. i really love to use the purple or cyan color background(first and second colour from the left side ) use among the background shown in the demo settings. 3. is there a way to remove mail chimp and let my users inputted value be sent directly to my mail? thanks…anticipating your reply


1. So your need to create new fields in your MailChimp account; add them in index.php and finally make some changes to store-address.php file:

function storeAddress(){

    // Validation
    if(!$_GET['email']){ return "No email address provided"; } 

    if(!preg_match("/^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*$/i", $_GET['email'])) {
        return "Email address is invalid"; 

    // grab an API Key from
    $api = new MCAPI('your_apikey');

    // grab your List's Unique Id by going to
    // Click the "settings" link for the list - the Unique Id is at the bottom of that page. 
    $list_id = "my_list_unique_id";

    // Merge variables are the names of all of the fields your mailing list accepts
    // Ex: first name is by default FNAME
    // You can define the names of each merge variable in Lists > click the desired list > list settings > Merge tags for personalization
    // Pass merge values to the API in an array as follows
    $mergeVars = array('FNAME'=>$_GET['fname'],

    if($api->listSubscribe($list_id, $_GET['email'], $mergeVars) === true) {
        // It worked!   
        return 'Success! Check your email to confirm sign up.';
        // An error ocurred, return error message   
        return 'Error: ' . $api->errorMessage;


// If being called via ajax, autorun the function
if($_GET['ajax']){ echo storeAddress(); }

2. All background images shown in the demo are included. You can find instructions on how to use them in the documentation.

3. Sorry, you’ll have to make such customization by yourself.

Hope that helps! Cheers!
