HI, I want money back !!!

Hi there, sorry to hear you’re not happy with the theme. I got your email so we can take things from there.

I noticed you mention 3 years ago that Gonzo doesn’t support Buddy Press. Do you have any plans to integrate that functionality into this theme?

Hi there, I’ve no plans to support BuddyPress in the foreseeable future. I would recommend checking out the dedicated BuddyPress category here at Themeforest, there are some very nice themes there:


I’m having trouble with the last update theme! The search field does not work as well as the issue be presenting incompatibility with some plugins. I had no such problems in the previous version.

Hi there, can you open a ticket please on my support site:


Thanks :)

Security updates from last week are still making the theme unusable, author is aware, site still do not work properly.

Asking for REFUND!

To be fair, I offered to help but you refused to let me log into your wordpress dashboard. If you let me log in I can sort this out easily.

I’ve fixed the bug and there is an update in the review queue. Since it’s Sunday the approval should happen sometime tomorrow.

Is this theme still updated? The changelog has stopped last year!

Absolutely, I’m continually updating the theme, the last update was two days ago. I’ll amend the item description to show the last couple of updates.

I’ve been using Gonzo for over 2-years now and I must admit, the support has been great but like ALL wordpress themes, you do need some technical background. A+ Theme and A++ Support! Well done Ollie!

Thanks for your kind words :)

Not only is the Gonzo magazine theme easy to work with (via short code), and the theme visually unique and stunning, but perhaps most importantly, the theme’s developer Ollie McCarthy is an absolute joy to work with.

I’ve been running my fantasy football website (http://sleeperlist.com) for two years now using the Gonzo theme. Not until a recent update did I encounter a problem. The issue was a minor one at best, and turned out to be a Java Script bug.

Ollie was fantastic. His response time stands out in a crowd—and I’ve worked with enough developers to know the difference. Ollie was prompt, but he was respectful and courteous…not to mention that he worked diligently to solve the issue, not just mask it. My category images stopped showing, with just a dull black background in their place. Ollie was able to get to the root of the issue through process of elimination.

I will stay Ollie and OMC for as long as I’m a website owner. Thanks again Ollie!

Thank you! :)

Hi, I’ve been searching and searching and the only plugin I’ve found that offers this functionality is kk star ratings… but it doesn’t offer itemized rating(eg splitting a restaurants rating into say service, quality and price)

What I’m after is a theme like your own, but the most important thing is that I can show in the sidebar, a widget showing the top 5 rated restaurants, the top 5 rated bars, the top 5 rated beaches etc. I’d just like to be able to create a category for each and have top 5 lists displayed in the side bar. Surely, I’m not the only one for whom that is a basic necessity …..

I’d code it myself, but I’d rather by an off the shelf theme like yours and get busy filling it with content…

Please tell me Gonzo has a top rated widget(separated by category)! :)

Hi there, you’re in luck my friend :)

I included a custom widget that does exactly this – it’s called “Gonzo Best Reviews”. Pop the widget in your sidebar, put in the category you want, set the amount of posts to display, save and you’re done.

that’s good news :) cheers. tbh the demos of most magazine themes don’t show ratings split by category. thats what has put me off purchasing so far… i’d definitely recommend that u put that widget on your demo site… thanks hopefully be buying before too long :)

Hey, love the theme! Thanks for the great work.

I was wondering, is it possible to remove the description of your posts when adding layout module C?

Thanks for the nice words :)

Yes, that’s easy enough to do. Open a ticket on my support site and we can take it from there: http://omc.ticksy.com/

Is there a way to place social sharing icons at the end of each article? Like between the end of the article and the comments section? I don’t see this in the demo. Thanks!

Hi there, that’s pretty easy – there are lots of free plugins that allow you to do that. Have a look at the official plugin repository:


why the theme does not have breadcrumb?

Hi there, I didn’t think it needed breadcrumbs if I’m honest. However if you do want them, I had a look and the NavXT plugin is still going strong:


It would take minimal coding skills to implement it. If you get stuck I’ll help you out with it.

Any room for adding something into the white space per your header to the right per the back end of the admin of the theme?

Hi there, the right-hand side of the header accepts widgets so it’s easy to put something inside there.

Hi Ollie,

Your theme looks great! Before buying it I have 3 questions I want to clarify with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answers in order for me to decide whether this is the one that works for me. Thank you so much in advance!

1- Under Blog Style 2, is there a way for me to configure the blog posts underneath the slider to be 4, rather than 5?

2- On those very same blog posts on the home page, is there a way to remove the category square so that it only shows the featured image? (On the live preview here, it would be the one that says WORLD NEWS in the bomb found article)

3- Can I remove or customize the text showing under said featured image?

Once again, not looking for the answer, just knowing whether the support provided with the purchase will help me with the CSS code to make these modifications.

Hi there, I’ll keep my answers as concise as possible ;)

1 – Yes, you can change the amount of posts in the blogroll inside the wordpress dashboard.

2 – Yes, that’s a very simple customisation that takes all of 2 minutes.

3 – Yes, but that’s a trickier customisation that would require you to have some basic wordpress/php knowledge.

How can I edit the padding and margins of the video embed short codes? The default has a large top margin and no bottom margin and I want to balance that out.

Hi there, can you open a ticket for that please. Here’s the link: http://omc.ticksy.com/

Hello. I tried uploading the gonzo.zip file on wordpress.org like you suggested in the comments but it’s still not working. Is the theme compatible with the latest wordpress 4.3?

A self-hosted wordpress installation is where you buy a domain name and a hosting account. Then you install wordpress onto it.

The other option is to use wordpress.org which is free.

I have a domain name and hosting account through Go Daddy. How would I go about adding wordpress to that so I can use the theme?

Godaddy should have a one-click wordpress install option in the control panel. Have a look on their website for instructions.
