I just purchased this theme and I am having some major trouble attempting to replicate the “personal” look and feel.
1) Why is there a border around the entire site? I have the “Full Screen” option checked on the portfolio page…
2) How do I change the background color of the header to the “red”?
3) How do I align the top menu to the right?
4) Why is my “Projects” page an ugly grey?
5) I imported all of the options for “Personal” so why is my site not looking like the “Personal” site you have on display?
You can sort 1, 2, 3 and 4 on the template customizer options, you have all the options to change those there. As to 5 have you imported only the options or the demo content import? Importing the option will change the options to match the personal demo but the content is not inserted.
Hello great template!
Just a quick question, can i set up the portfolio as the home page and not features?
as well I guess the number of images on the portfolio is not restricted (can i add as many as i want?) and last is there a space anywhere to add some social media icons?
1) Yes you can change the home page in the template customizer, make sure you add the portfolio page to the menu before though
2) You can add as many portfolio items as you want yes, essenza loads them dynamically as the user scrolls down.
3) You can add them in the footer, for this go to the template customizer also
Some bugs I found so far, beside the problem with the forwarding every visitor to the frontpage instead the requested page..
Path links to fonts and font subdirectories, typemismatch?
Database interference with other site in the same MySQL
Database overload… Fills up the database until it gets stuck
Hope it help?
Not sure what you mean with those, database handling is delt by wordpress so can’t be essenza’s do. The only problem could occur when importing demos.
Fills up the database until it gets stuck? How so?
I’ve been trying to activate the minimal demo on my site but I keep getting the regular one with the white background and borders unlike the demo that you’ve displayed.
I’ve imported demo content and settings.
I’m also running on WP 3.8
Can you create a ticket over our support system, provide us some wp credentials so we can recreate your problem.
Regards and thanks for your patience!
Hello! I tried you on PlusSquare, but maybe I’ll have better luck here
I’m almost done w/ this gorgeous site – and I couldn’t have done it w/out Essenza!!! Here are my road-blocks:
- Can i remove/disable vimeo share/embed links? They conflict with “close” x.
- Sometimes my fullscreen images crop weird, is there any fix for this? Is there an optimal image size?
- Visual Pagebuilder doesn’t allow line (or text) center alignment.
- Need to change font on Text Block, only have OpenSans option (how do I change this?)
- Is there a way to turn off the drop down effect when you mouseover on the menu?
Thank you so much!
Thanks and sorry for the delay, answering to your questions:
1) that can’t be removed by vimeo limitations
2) You can add more fonts on the template customizer, also you can justify the text using the text editor
3) Unfortunately not, but try switching to individual submenus
4) Check it your server has gzip compression enabled for exampe
Hope I’ve answered all your doubts
Thank you for your response. I have these issues now too :/
- Header & Footer Margins aren’t aligning w/ new page margins.
- Our Twitter feed keeps shifting up and down, is there any way to correct that?
- Facebook Icon keeps disappearing from time to time.
- Can’t drag & load Google Fonts. There aren’t any fonts to choose from in the “Pick From Google Fonts” Essenza dashboard panel.
- Can’t center lines despite of what the panel options are. (see: http://www.poetickineticsla.com/pk-wp/about )
If you could please help with these, that would be great!
Hi, can you create a ticket on our support system for this? I’ll review all tickets tomorrow.
It seems that websites running 2.0 don’t have the redirect problem!
Maybe you can provide us with the previous version?
Hi, well some issues were corrected for version 2.1, and don’t think some fix might have done that. We’re investigating this, all should be ok for version 2.2
I installed the plugin Google Analyticator but, when i activated, the website doesn’t load anymore!
Any ideas why?
Essenza supports google analytics by itself, you don’t need that plugin
Hi, any idea when the next update will be? Hoping for centred content before making my site go live.
Happy New Year
It should be for the first 3-4 weeks of january. We’re aiming for that
Hi, i really love your template and i wanna buy it!
I have just a question : Can i remove this from portfolio?
If you use the gallery module, you will not have that description box, only the lightbox. I think that’ll be a good option for you
Thank you for the fast answer
I have already a good template with gallery and my idea is something like this :
and this is my website :
So there is no possibility to remove it?
Thank you so much!
...and i want ask u just one more thing…it’s possible put in the middle the website menu bar?
What you can do is to set a link for each portfolio work to a slider page.
So the steps to create a portfolio work like this would be:
- Make the slider with an animation like the link you’ve sent
- Publish that slider and copy the permalink of that slider
- Create the work in the portfolio post type
- Add custom link and paste the link you copied
This should work fine for your case, let me know
As to the menu, no it isn’t possible to center the menu unfortunately
i’ve bought your theme! It’s great…i’ve just spent a lot of time to understand how it works cause is different from other themes that i’ve have already, and there is not step by step in documentation (for different type of gallery and slide). So i’ve imported theme to understand how works. But after this…i can say that it’s very very beautiful theme, and your assistance is very fast and kindly!!
Thank you for the steps to create a portfolio…now i’ll try
Just two question :
1 – In my menu there is not possibility to choose white or black theme
2 – ...and with editor is possible format menu in center? Or it’s possible that you insert in the next upgrade?
Thank you so much!!!
I’ve very happy about this theme
Answering to your questions:
1- Doesn’t work like that, you have multiple options for the menu, like grouped submenus, individual submenus, multiple color options, we have schedule a re organization of the options on the template customizer as I feel it is a bit confusing as it is now
2- For now no, not sure I’ll have it included in next version as we do have quite a big list of improvements, but added to the wishlist
Hi, Thank u so much for your support!!!
I’ve find another way to delete this : http://pasteboard.co/2kVAQS6e.png
In description horizontal position or in the other side…just add 200 %
Ahah good one, didn’t even remembered that.
Don’t forget to rate Essenza. Have a good day
Hi and happy new year!!!
I’ve rated your template with 5 stars.
Tell me that u insert option to disable right click to save images…because is very very important!! can u do it to next upgrade?
I’ve added to the whishlist, shouldn’t be too hard to make.
Thanks for the support by the way, happy new year!

Hi! I’ve a question for you…when i publish my website link bruce-costa.com in facebook, there is alway this message under the name :
This is an optionable welcome message. It is easy to change it or remove it completely. Nullam condimentum mauris id massa vulputate phatra vitae id sapien. Cras hendrerit, ipsum a aliquam feugiat, urna mi intedum lectus, at vehicula sem leo porttitor massa. Duis sodales, velit et egestas feugiat, t…
I’ve deleted this welcome message and i wrote new message… Can u help me to understand?
...and in google : http://pbrd.co/1b2795L
How is possible?
yes sorry about that, you can change that text by changing the welcome text on the template customizer. Think it should work.
Sorry for the delay, hope you understand, we still didn’t made the swith to fulltime here and it’s been some crazy full weeks
Hi, does it work with wordpress 3.4.1?
Don’t think it’ll work as we use the new image manager from version 3.5 onwards. You can upgrade your wordpress though quite easily.
Hi there, I’m having issues – I have set a slider post as my home page using the theme settings – this loads correctly in Chrome but in Safari and Firefox the site won’t load at all. http://lightcrash.com
It is loading correctly on my firefox, can you describe the problem in more detail?
I really love your theme ! What an amazing look ! You made a great work. I’m very annoyed because I would like to buy it but it miss something really important for me : multilingual feature.
I use WPML and would like to go on with this plug-in. Did some users make compatibility tests between Essenza and WPML?
I red the comment you explain that multilingual users would have to make sub sites for each language. I didn’t really understand this part, how it works with your internal option. Do you have screenshotss of it or examples on a website ? (Sorry, I’m a newbie!)
When a WPML ready version will be released ?
Many thanks in advance for your reply. Best regards,
Thanks so much for the great words, we really appreciate
We have plans to make it wpml ready for version 3.0 as well as woo commerce integration, the should go up quite a bit though.
Unfortunately can’t give you a date for version 3.0, but maybe for end of march.
I opened 2 tickets (1 private and 1 public) on your support page but nobody still answered me.
I am a bit disappointed about this purchase, portfolio and works can’t load at all and Im not getting the support I was expecting.
Please get back to me.
Just checked and I think you’re on top of the line, your 2 tickets actually.
It works don’t worry, we’ll help out
I’m thinking about purchasing this theme. Before in the Creative Demo, the headings appeared at the top. Now you have to click on the triple horizontal lines and have the headings appear on the left side of the screen. Is it possible to revert back the headings to appear at the top of the screen?
Not sure what you mean here? Which headings are you talking about?
By headings, I mean where it says “Portfolio, Slider, Features, Gallery, etc..”
Right. The mobile menu appears when your screensize does not allow the full menu to show. No changes have been made to the technical parts of the menu during the updates.
Unfortunately I had to switch back to my previous theme.
Essenza is too buggy at the moment. I spend a lot of time installing your theme and trying to fix it. The design approach is great.
The code is not at the same level. I guess you have to invest quite some time to fix everything. Wish you all the best for 2014
All the best to you too and we’re sorry that you experience bugs preventing you from using the theme successfully. We hope the upcoming update will fix them for you !
I’m using a CDN for my site. My problem is, W3TC will not re-write urls for the portfolio images, or homepage thumbs.
Is there a option that I’m missing in the Essenza theme? Or custom script i can insert somewhere?
Hi sorry for the delay, can you create a ticket on our support system. I’ll clear all tickets tomorrow
my ticket # is 136206
Thanks, we’ll review that as soon as possible.
I’m waiting again your support for fix/resolve my problem.
I’ve open the Tocket on Plusquare but I haven’t answer!!!
I write to you many weeks ago… now I’m on-line with the site, and I have the same problem withour resoluction!!!
Let me know… It’s important and urgent!!
Can you give me the link to the ticket?
How I can control the style for the text comment on about section?
In EssenzaPage->Font->Text Styles does’t found the tag for comment.
Indeed the option is missing, sorry for the delay only got time to check it today. I’ve added it to the todo list
Hi there- I have wordpress 3.8 and I have just purchased your awesome theme for my portfolio and I am very eager to get it up and running ASAP. I downloaded the installable wordpress file only – essence – and zipped it, did the usual steps to upload the theme, but it won’t upload – it just hangs after I click “Install”. I need to get this going the morning – please could you reply to my ticket I posted on the support forum?
Thank so much.
Can you tell me the ticket url?
Thanks for your patience!
I’ve purchased this template and added a support ticket almost a week ago and yet to have the template running. It would be fine if it’s a few bugs here and there, but the template does not function. It would be great if the template I paid for, was at least semi-functional/work.
I understand you guys are busy but any update on progress on the problem would be great.
The theme of course is functional, sorry if you’re experiencing some problem. Can you tell me your ticket id?
Thanks for the reply. My ticket is #140463
Hi, sorry for the delay I’ll clear all tickets tomorrow
