Hi, I like this theme, however, I want the background of the dark version look a little bit lighter, is it possible? How can i change the background color/pattern? Any sample icon/texture included in the theme, and any PSD ?

Thanks

DesignerThemes

There aren’t any alternative background patterns included with the theme but you can find some great free ones here… http://subtlepatterns.com/.

The current bg pattern can easily be changed with the custom css option in the theme. We can help you out with this in the forum. http://support.designerthemes.com/

Hi, can the theme allow for multiple authors/bloggers, each with their own author main page listing all their postings on the site? Thanks!

DesignerThemes

Yes, all of our themes.

Can this theme be made responsive?

DesignerThemes

This theme is not responsive.

Any plans on making this awesome theme responsive? I think it would be a dealbreaker for many bloggers out there.

DesignerThemes

Sorry, no plans to make Insomnia responsive right now.

Any plan to update to WP 3.5? Slideshow doesn’t work. Post editor doesn’t work. And other issues more… please!!!

DesignerThemes

Hi there,

We have tested the theme in 3.5 and all seems ok. There is probably something else causing your issues. Post a topic on our support forum and we’ll try and track down the problem.

Cheers.

??????????????????????????????

For how long will Insomnia be supported? Let’s say that an upgrade to WordPress 3.7 or whatever breaks something in the theme design, will you release a new version to fix like issues?

DesignerThemes

Hi. As long as we are selling a theme we’ll support and provide updates for it. If we decide to retire a theme we will contact buyers of that theme and give ample notice to switch themes or continue using the retired version.

Cheers!

How much to make this theme responsive?

DesignerThemes

Sorry, we’re not taking on any custom work. I’d suggest you check out werkpress for a quote.

I know two steps to add a new widget area, (1) register a widget area, (2) add the widget area to the template file.

But I only found where to do (2), not (1).

<?php if (dt_is_sidebar_active(‘footer_3’)) : ?> <?php dynamic_sidebar(‘footer_3’); ?> <!- #footer-3 .widget-area .footer-widget -> <?php endif; ?> <?php if (dt_is_sidebar_active(‘footer_4’)) : ?> <?php dynamic_sidebar(‘footer_4’); ?> <!- #footer-4 .widget-area .footer-widget -> <?php endif; ?>

Would you mind telling me how to register the 4th footer?

Go to this file… /themes/insomnia/library/functions/widgets.php

You’ll see them registered at the top.

Really appreciate that you replied it so quickly! I still have more concerns:

(1) there are 3 Tweets in the 3rd Footer in your demo, but no matter I put your “DT – Latest Tweets” in the Sidebar or in the Footer, it doesn’t show 3 Tweets (already configured Twitter Username and Number of tweets—3).

(2) You offered a great layout to show a category http://louise.comewiththewind.com.au/category/blog but for this particular category if I want all the posts in this page shown in one column instead of two columns (sidebar is ok in its position), do I need to write a new page template for it? Also, I want the top to show “A Cruisey Life” instead of “CATEGORY: BLOG” anyway.

(3) Using different ways to upload photos with your theme actually produced different results which should be the same http://louise.comewiththewind.com.au/contact. Compare the Footer in Home page and the Footer in this Contact page, the differences are—(a) the post “Kayaking in Antarctica” has no thumbnail, (b) all the posts have an extra white dotted line. I don’t want to wait for the new theme update(s). If you could just send codes over to me here, thanks a million !!!

By the way, INSOMNIA THEME is really great. We love it very much.

Your live preview doesn’t work :p

DesignerThemes

Yeah sorry!

We’re in the process of upgrading our demo sites to a new and faster server. We will be back up shortly.

tried to install to WP and it sayd style.css cannot be found in the zip file. any idea?

DesignerThemes

You are uploading the wrong folder. You should only upload the theme folder, not the folder that holds everything such as the theme documentation and PSD’s etc.

Thanks!

Hmm, sorry you’re having trouble. Please post this issue (with your site url) in our support forum and we’ll look into it for you. http://support.designerthemes.com/

This theme is not working on my WP 3.9.1. It does not let me add any text into the post editor. I am also unable to register on the ticket site. Is this theme still supported?

I had major problems when attempting to update to Wordpress 3.9 Smith and my site broke. Disabled all plugins and the usual stuff but no success. Ended up rolling back to 3.8.4.

Now 4.0 is available and I am too scared to take the risk without advice. My Insomnia version is 2.4.

Advice sought.

Hi Joe,

Please see two questions above.

Has support ended for this theme?

DesignerThemes

I’m sorry but since you have made so many customizations to the theme I’m unable to help.

Default-user

I have only edited the header size. Can you at least suggest why, after the upgrade, I can no longer edit my sidebars (they do not appear in the widget admin bar anymore)?
