Hi guys,

Excellent template and a really awesome support service!

Thanks! Ronan

Thank you very much Ronan !

We appreciate it !

I have been fighting trying to set up the slider on the frontpage but I cant make it work. I have the slider working on another page and comparing those 2 pages reveals absolutely nothing. What am I doing wrong here?

Hello RigPa,

could you please send us credentials or screen shots of those two pages via mail support so we look into it.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.

When I click “Use theme default slider settings” I get this:

Warning: array_map() [function.array-map]: Argument #2 should be an array in /home/www/chillout-shop.dk/wp-includes/query.php on line 2395

Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/www/chillout-shop.dk/wp-includes/query.php on line 2395

Hello RigPa,

this issue was corrected in 1.1.7. After you instal 1.1.7 please define again which posts you wanna have in settings.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.

I also get this one:

Hello RigPa,

this issues seems to be connected with payment gateway, not the theme. However you can send us some url access (via support mail) and we can check it for you.

Hi Prospekt,

I have no checkbox “Contact page options” in my screen options. The page is a “Contact Template” but no “Contact page options” :( Did u know what u mean?

Hello Bambu999,

besides choosing template, you will also need to setup settings for the contact page options. Please check here: http://d.pr/i/Jryn

Hi! you’r my hero! :) thanks a lot BR Bambu

Hi Prospekt, how did you became the searchbar in the top-bar?? I find nothing in the documentation.

Thanks! BR Bambu

Hello Bambu,

You need to have Woocommerce instaled, this part is connected with Woocommerce products search.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.

yes, I got a serious question. I really like the theme but. On the first everything was fine but then today I added a page. When it was still a draft it was visible as a preview section. But as soon as I published the page it gave me a 404 page not found error and also if went to the page link itself. Why? And how can I correct that? Please help me cause this a serious(!!!) issue.

Answer given via mail support.

hello, I am trying to figure out how to get the “carusel simple-slider-posts” to show in the home page option 1 . I can add the large image, the top two tone header, and the info at the bottom. but I can not get the product carusel to work. I am not even sure where the slider pulls the info from. ?? please advice. thanks

Hello Michael,

you need to create desired query which is returning designated set of posts. Check it here: http://d.pr/i/TDDb

that was the solution. thnx.

Hello, we need to change the word “Cart” on the top menu of the theme, (we are working this side in Spanish) we couldn’t find this word inside the localization file. We need to know in which script or php file is located.

We find in the header.php this line of code:

<li class="essential-cart has-submenu"><a href="<?php echo $woocommerce->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" data-icon="?">Cart (<?php echo $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count ?>)</a></li>

And we changed for this one:

<li class="essential-cart has-submenu"><a href="<?php echo $woocommerce->cart->get_cart_url(); ?>" data-icon="?">Carrito (<?php echo $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count ?>)</a></li>

The word “Cart” in the Top menu didn’t change; even we modified “My Account”, “Login” and other links, that did change.


This is the URL of the site: http://test5.crwebs.net/

Hello Justin,

you did it good but you need also to change it at wp-content/themes/essential/admin/woocommerce.php. Also we can send you correct files if you contact us via mail support.

This will also be corrected in 1.1.9.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.

Thank you!!!

Home page not responsive, viewing on iPhone it looks terrible, rest of the pages seem to be fine. Really need a quick answer on this please.

Hello Kent,

developers are looking into this issue as we speak. You will get information ASAP.

Best regards, ProspektDEsign.

How long are we looking? It has been like this for more than a month, taking the site live now.

Hello Kent,

could you please send us screenshot or url via mail support since we tried on iPhone 4 and 5 and everything seems fine.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.

Is there a many languages ????

Hello Joudev,

our theme supports multiple languages via .po file editor or via one of existing plugins.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.


We notice, that in the home page tabs in the “ON SALE” tab, the only products that are display are the single products with sale prices. When you create “Variable Product” and you put a Sale price they don’t appear inside of this tab. Most of our products has “Variables” (COLOS, SIZE, ETC) and we need them to appear in this tab.

Please let us know how could we change this.



Hello Justin,

you are right, we are putting update 1.1.9 now and it should be approved by Envato within 48h.

In case you are in hurry please contact us via mail support so we can send you required files immediately.

Best regards, ProspektDesign.
