SLGSI Purchased

Hello, Erik,

I just now purchased the theme, and am carefully following your steps for installing it as per the demo. I am currently on step #3.) Check the Download and import file attachments checkbox and hit send.

This is the message I received after completing that step:

Before I go any further, what is needed for these failure messages?

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Erik,

Thank you for responding step by step. Actually, I have set up two word press website before with success.

So, I would not be asking for your support if I didn’t do all the things listed in the set-up. This is a pretty simple set of 6 instructions.

So, that is where this has become a little confusing or frustrating. Despite being meticulous in following all 6 instructions, my site still is not appearing as per the demo. I did not miss setting my “Front Page Display” to “Home” (instead of the default wordpress “Blog”) as you mention in step 6 of the import demo content guide from in the docs. In fact, I double checked it and saved it again, EXACTLY as the screenshot says. So, I am at a loss.

If you would take a look, I would appreciate it. [removed by author request]

Thanks again, Najma

Hi Erik,

It turns out there were two “Home” pages to select, for some reason. So I simply selected the other, and it seems to work. Since I inadvertently published the site, password and your email, I will be changing it for security.

Best, Najma


Hi Najma, thanks for noticing me about your success. Cheers, Erik

When I click sign up with the contact form (which is integrated with mail chimp), I want the screen to scroll down so I can see the ‘email’ box.

Currently when I click ‘Sign up now’ – I have to scroll down to see the email box. This would be confusing for first time visitors.




Hello, thanks for your purchase!

I’m afraid i don’t understand what you would like to achieve exactly.. :( Can you show me your site / or explain with a few more details please.

Happy editing! Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik, thank you for a great theme.

I just purchased one and I am almost finished with set up. But I have a few questions: 1) I have added the videos via youtube. On the website frontage appears also the blue text by the video picture: “Use left/right arrow keys to advance one second, Up/Down arrows to advance ten seconds.” Do not you know how to remove this text? 2) There is a button in the section of Overviews – “load more/show less” Where can I translate it? I found only where to translate “load more”. But after loading more the button is with the writing “show less” and after pressing it is visible button “load more” again – without already done translation. 3) Where can be translated the blog section: “The Blog” on the top of the page, “Type and hit enter” on the top right side, “by author, on date” under the headline of the post, “continue reading” under the post and “posted in” under the headline of the open post.

Thank you very much for your answer.

Have a nice day,



Hi Filip, thanks for your purchase and kind words, i’m happy that you like the theme and found the setup easy! :)

1.) Add this to the bottom of your styles.css file to remove it:
.mejs-offscreen { display: none !important; }
2.) You can rewrite it manually in your /js/custom.js file, on line 176:
$(this).text( 'show less' );
3.) Open up your index.php file (from your theme files) and on line 4:
 _e( 'The blog' , 'flatbook' ) 
Next, in searchform.php file, on line 3:
 _e( 'Type and hit enter...' , 'flatbook' )

And just do the same method with the rest of the words ;) Let me know how it worked out. Happy editing! Cheers, Erik

Hello Eric,

I’ve just sent you an email and not sure which way of communication is better. As I said, I’m stuck in the step where I need to import a file. I’m missing the file “Extras/Import/flatbook-demo-content.xml”. I did not find it in the Downloads folder. How can I get it?


Hello and thanks for your purchase! Both ways of communication are enabled, depends on your preferences :)

The reason you don’t see that folder, is you downloaded only the “installable wordpress files” instead of “all files & documentation”..

Log in to your themeforest account, hover on your username and select “Downloads” from the dropdown menu, and near “FlatBook….” click on the green “Download” button and choose “All files & documentation” to get the whole package.

Cheers, Erik


Eric, I did that now, but I received an error “Stylesheet Missing”.

Then I’ve read the article you’ve suggested: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821510

I tried both types of uploads – directly in the wordpress and via FTP. Both options failed. There’s still an error “Stylesheet is missing”.

I’ve noticed that my wordpress version is 4.1.1 and you support the latest WordPress 4.0.

Can this be a problem? If so, how can I get the version for WordPress 4.1.1?


No way, ftp method always work.. I can’t tell what you did wrong because lack of details, but if that helps, i can offer you to send me over your wp and ftp login credentials in email, and i will set everything up for you in a couple of minutes. Cheers, Erik
