Me again Zerge :D something weird is going on for the mobile version of the site, when I select the “enable responsive layout” feature I can’t click anything on the site while on my phone (Android) and my buddy with an iphone wasn’t able to as well. The top menu tab also only displays the option “Go to…” and none of the pages (About, Contact Us, Home) the site is http://www.venuemonsters.com other than that this is working fantastic. I’m sure I have something unplugged… :p

Flagman Options -> Ads Banner Settings

i love you :D thanks.

Glad to help :)

I would appreciate if you rate our theme
(menu Downloads on ThemeForest)

Thank you.

Hi- this theme looks like it might be exactly what I’m looking for, but I have one question. How customizable is the header size? I would like to change the height if possible. Thanks!

Hi BerlsS,

Yes, it’s possible. The heigth of the header depends on you content (logo, banner, etc).

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

The drop-down menus of your horizontal menu of the demo does not work. I’d love to buy your theme, but I also hope that all the features functioned. Check compatibility with the latest version of WordPress is released recently …

Configuration to help you:
- Firefox (latest version)

Thank you in advance,

PS: Translated with Google Translate

Try to test it again.

A friend also tested the dropdown menu, it does not work for him either.
Thank you to fix this and it’s not my PC …

No a such issue for us and our customers. Try to clear the browser cache, etc.

Hello, The dropdown menu does not work anymore for me too. I wanted to buy it today. I hope you’ll fix it as soon as possible !

OK, It works well now. Before I buy : can I easily change the background behind the Logo from black to white ? Tks

Yes, this can be changed easily.

Dear Zerge!

Thank you for this great template! I’d need you to point me in the right direction as I can’t find the way to display the bottom navigation menu. I created the menu, assigned it to the bottom navigation theme location under Appearance -> Menu -> Manage locations, but still can’t figure out why it is not appearing.

I’d like to display the bottom navigation menu in the Footer of the template, not in a sidebar or after content using the custom menu widget.

Thank you for your help!

Example you can find in the files functions.php (register new sidebar) and template-homepage.php (declaration). Also may be this helps you – http://www.tastyplacement.com/add-sidebar-wordpress

Thank you! Managed to integrate the sidebar with widgets in header. 5 stars for both the product and support!

And thank you too ;)

I have a newspaper project where I need a top banner news story (picture and words which may or may not be fixed or roll with the blog) The rest of the page is split with news stories on the left and image galleries on the right (that will link to stories). The news stories have twitter and facebook links. At some point on the right there is a video section instead of image galleries. I wanted to know if you think your theme can easily work with this type of setup. I am a wordpress/php developer, but some themes are easier to work with on custom projects than others, thanks


Can you show a sketch, how it should be.

You can get an idea from this website, http://www.hnn.co.il/ its not English but you get the idea…

I think this can be done with Flagman theme.

Also pay attention to our other themes:

Hi Zerge, just rated your work with a 5 star rating, nice work! I’ve purchased the theme and am doing some recipes on my site. Is there a way I can get the users to actually rate the ‘dish’ instead of myself rating it? Many Thanks. Stuart

What do you mean by “change the banner on a particular page”?

for example a certain post will have a different banner at the top.

By default no such feature.

I tried to recreate your template with your demo files its missing some categories.

This can be changed in the file /includes/theme-metaboxes.php:

'max_file_uploads'    => 20,

So I was trying to move the whole site to the real page I exported the wordpress files. When I was importing it gave me a error wouldnt do it. I managed to get the files there but then when I was configuring the widgets the CT Blog widget shows more posts than I need what is the problem.

Try to set the “Blog pages show at most” (menu Settings -> Reading ) equal or less than you specify in the Flagman Options -> Blog Settings.


Thanks for the great theme. I’m fairly new to the Wordpress world and I’m sure you have it located somewhere, but could you direct me to a page for how to install all documents for the theme? I’m a bit confused.

Thanks again.


Go to menu Download on ThemeForest and download the package “All files & documentation”. Inside this package go to directory “Demo Content” -> Readme.txt

What is the name of the widget that has the scrolling pictures of recent posts on the homepage?

Top Carousel Widget

Hi Zerge, im having problems with the twitter widget, I don’t know if anyone else is.. When I place the twitter widget under the magazine sidebar box the main slider disappears. Twitter also doesn’t show the tweets (after putting in the extra info in the flagman settings). In the example video you put together I couldn’t see any reference to the twitter widget.

Also with the Blog widget I put the number of posts that I want on the home page (in the flagman settings) and it lists 8 posts. I just wanted 3, I’ve tried this on another site and the same thing still happens.

Thanks, im on it

How to I size image to be same size so they show the same size in a widget I try to size them but they r different.

1. Why is it different size on different posts I use the same crop size. But when I drop the file size down it drops the image size how can I make it show the same it changes. What do I do in the functions to keep it the 770 by 770?

2. The Widget is the Small Slider Widget.

1. Is there a way to keep them a rectangle and show as a square on the home screen?

1,2. Probably some of your images too small. Should be at least 770×770

Great theme! I have a quick question. For the header image, so matter how long I make the length, it always contains it to the left side of the header. Is there a way to get the header to be the full length? Secondly, how did you add the linked image into the header like you have on your demo site?



Thanks :)

I tried setting up an account on the forum, but I don’t know where to find the purchase code. So, can you answer this quick question? How do I change the background behind the logo from black to another color?

1. http://color-theme.com/wp-content/themes/wp-colortheme/images/purchase-code.jpg

2. Add to the style.css:

#header { background-color: #ff0000; }

Perfect – thanks for the quick reply!

Glad to help ;)

Hi, many congrats for this awesome theme. Five stars rating coming. Only one question: I want to open the review options to all the users, like polls. My intention is to know the opinion of the users about the posts. Example here: http://www.turismodelnalon.es/casa-fueyo/ Is posible for an external user select a five stars rating for this post?, or is only an option for the admin users. I´ll be very thankfully for your help!!! (Hope my english was good enough)


Thanks :)

Unfortunately it only for admin users. To make it available for all users you would need to modify the theme files, a task for a developer.

Ouch… Thanks anywhere. Fast answer!!


Just purchased the theme and it’s excellent. Just a quick question, I am new to Wordpress, so hopefully this is a simple question.

On the demo, all the images are nice and clear and appear cropped (on the sidebar widgets and carousels) but on my version they all appear larger and blurred.

How can I set them so they all appear the same size?

Thanks in advance.


Hi dawin,

Show me this on your site.

Purchased theme and installed it on www.musicsradio.com the pages came up blank. Please advise.


Just read the Documentation or watch this screncast – http://www.screenr.com/7EgH

Please help. When I load the theme, I get a blank white screen. I have went back to my previous theme, and it comes up fine, then I go back to this theme, and it comes back white. Please help!

Ok. I did.

I just sent a new message

Got it.

Hi, Can you please explain me how to create a Page with category like you did in your Category/hobby page? I don’t find how to create a Category for a Page.. Thank you


These pages created automatically. For example – http://www.wpbrix.com/wordpress-basics/build-custom-menus-wordpress-36/

Thank you!!!

Hi, just a couple of questions.

Can the unlimited sidebars be used for categories too? I need a different one for each cat.

Can the carousel be disabled easily for above categories?


Sorry to bother you again, do you know if this plugin will work with your theme to create custom sidebars for categories. If it will i’ll buy the theme now. http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-sidebars/

Just tested – it works fine. So you can this plugin.

I wish to eventually create a membership site charging readers. Is the Extended version the right version. If so, if I start with the Regular version first, how do I upgrade to the extended version. Thank you.

Hi Tony,
