Hi, just a short question before we buy your theme. In the portolio/gallery section, is it possible to have the image or video link (when clicking on the image) to navigate to the post instead of open image/thumbnail in full size in “pretty photo” etc. - thanks, larkje


I’m interested in purchasing this theme. If I want to manually resize my images to fit the image frames is there a way to disable thumbnail creation? I’ve found it can often negatively affect the sharpness of my images and this is a deciding factor for me. Thank you!


Hmm, well I don’t want to deactivate the frame, just the thumbnail generation!

Hello, interested in purchasing your Theme…. Is this one BTW your best and most featureful Theme? Couple of questions.

1. Does this theme allow you to designate a Lightbox to ALL videos and images? For example, often whether on the HomePage or elsewhere, the “thumbed” picture or video will be linked to the actual post. I would prefer all media to open in a Lightbox, and if people want to go to the article, they can simply click on the link that’s already there in the Title, whatever.

2. Can you instead of opening in a Lightbox, also designate certain posts to actually “play” in the image box itself, i.e., and audio, a video, flash, etc.?

3. Your Shortcode Generator seems like it works in the “Visual” Tab of creating a post, is that correct? Does it not work in the HTML section where it should, so the code doesn’t mess up the text as viewed in the Visual tab?

Thank you…. :)


Hey there,

Thanks so much for your interest in Karma.

Here’s some info that should help to shed some light on your questions:

1. All media is opened within the Lightbox itself. The “description” below the ’thumbnail image’ can have links/text etc that can link anywhere you specify. This is true for the “Gallery” page template as well as the Lightbox Shortcodes.

2. Lightbox items can only be played within the actual Lightbox itself.

3. The Shortcode Manager displays only in the Visual Editor. This was done so that the HTML editor is not bombarded with the 100+ shortcodes. Switching between Visual and HTML view has no effect at all on the shortcodes. All shortcodes will still function properly.

I hope this information was helpful for you. Please feel free to give us a shout if you have any questions at all.

Cheers :)

How to get the homepage shows like the live demo? Not the one that shows on thumbnails item? I like the white background behind sliders. Mine right now is half white and half blue from the header menu.

Greetings, Thanks for everything once again.

Is there a way, in portfolio galleries, to have the thumbnails at full resolution? My images that I upload are greatly distorted. There is a quality loss.


Is it possible to group the images of a gallery in albuns (sub-galleries)?



Ok, thanks for your response. I think that’s what I wanted, but just to be sure, let me make an example (just trying to be clear):

I want to upload a photo called “tennis.jpg” in an album called “sports”.

When I enter the Gallery page, there will be thumbnails for all the albuns: “sports”, “fashion”, etc..

If I click on the thumb for the “sports” album, then it will open a page with a gallery with the photo “tennis.jpg” and any other photo in this album.


One question please.

I’ve seen that you have a shortcode that shows up some blog elements. You can choose one column, 2,3 or 4 and I’ve seen that all images will be resized to fill the placeholder. Have I correctly understood? Every image will autoresize itself to cover placeholder?

In addition, is it possible to specify which posts will be shown, for example from one or more category or from one or more posts ID, etc? I’ve not seen a list of parameter for blog shortcode. I think it shoulde be very usefull (at least for me!)

I need to be shure that blog functionality could cover all my needs. Thanks in advance for your time.


Hi There,

Thanks a lot for your interest in Karma.

As per your questions…..The post thumbnails of each post will be auto-resized to fit nicely into the image frames. You can set the column layout, the amount of posts to display, the post category to pull from (will pull from all categories if not specified), the character count, and the text for the “read more” button.

I hope this is helpful for you. Please feel free to give us a shout anytime if you have any further questions.


Firstly the work you have done is absolutely incredible. This theme seems to cover all my needs and beyond :) But I have no skills in coding so I have a few questions?

1. Blog – in the blog is there a way to sort/navigate the posts: latest posts, recent comments and archive? It’s quite a handy tool when reading blogs.

2. Homepage – how can I ad blog posts on to the home page? I can see there are posts on the footer section, but I’d like to use thumbnails and position the posts above the footer.

3. Subgalleries – how can I make subcategories form the galleries? Is there a way to make the image thumbnails clickable or can I make the tags link to the subgallery?

4. How can I change the image of the header and the background?

Hi there, first off, wonderful theme and absolutely thorough documentation!

I am running into one minor snag which I can’t make heads or tails of. On my test space, the entire theme ran without a hitch. Now that I’ve moved the theme to my live blog, there is one minor odd thing. The featured images do not resize and crop as they did on the test space.


As you can see, the images are distorted to fit into the image boxes. Any idea why they behave this way? I’ve already tried to disable all plugins to see whether it was a conflict issue, but that didn’t do the trick.


Hey Wendy,

Thanks so much for the kind words. We’re happy you like the theme.

As per the images, you may need to “regenerate” the images in your media library. This will ensure that the custom image dimensions are in place.

You can regenerate thumbnails with only a few mouse clicks using the ‘regenerate thumbnails’ plugin. Please check out this link on or forums for more details: http://support.truethemes.net/entries/20015961-my-thumbnails-are-not-resized-correctly

If you require further assistance please kindly post any new questions our support forums: http://support.truethemes.net

Thanks so much


Does anyone know if you can make items in the jQuery slider clickable? For example, the title or the thumbnail? Having a lot of trouble with this, couldn’t find any answers on the theme’s site. Thank you for your help!

I added images to a four column section of the homepage as described here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r5q_lzhQUc&feature=player_detailpage#t=170s.

However, this causes the full size images to be used, rather than the appropriate generated thumbnails – i.e. blah.jpg instead of blah-190×111.jpg, in this case.

Should the shortcode not automatically grab the correct thumbnail version?




Having a major problem with this theme…can you please help!

  • Cannot get ANY thumbnails to appear on the Homepage Slider or on the Gallery pages.

I tried renaming the thumbs.php file (as documented on this site: http://support.truethemes.net/entries/516297-thumbnails-iis7) but still no success.

Please help!!!


Is it possible to have a UI within the gallery so the user can change the sorting by date or by name?

Can you add a page layout for me to list the categories in the page with thumbnail for each categories?


Hi, I really love the look of the theme but I was wondering if it is possible to link the gallery items to an external page so that it opens in a new window – not a lightbox. I still want to be able to use a thumbnail and have the styling and mouseover transition – but I don’t want it to link to an image or video. I want it to open a new window with a flash slideshow.

I know you can open an iframe in a lightbox but I don’t like it. I prefer a separate window.

Also, is it possible to change the opacity of the mousover effect. I would like it to be more subtle.

What a bummer… The methods you stated to fix the timthumb issue didn’t work. I’m certain I’ve used timthumb with other themes and never really had an issue. I currently host with Bluehost.

Any ideas would be appeciated.

6th question – sorry! I have followed instructions to order my main navigation names but for some reason although I have changed the order under Menus, it is not reflected in the main site?

Q7. I have added subcategories as pages and then indented them as per video in the menu structure but I cannot see the sub categories at all?

Q8. On a roll now (!) How do I enter a profile photo? Cannot see how to add it in users.

Q9. Because i do not have the bitton called SCREEN OPTIONS at the top right hand side I am unable to follow your instructions to enter a description for the top level navigation?

Q10. Is it possible to add a thumbnail images to the blog page summary page?

Many thanks

Hi guys,

Just thought I’d add a suggestion for your next update. I would like to see a frame for images that adjusts to the size of your image vs. adjusting the image to the size to fit the frame. I know you use a sprite as opposed to code, but when adding odd-shaped images (that don’t scale down to you prefabbed frames), I had to add a lightbox snippet so it would enlarge so the clients could see it. Also, the availability to have image left-right-center would be nice.

Excellent theme! Great work!



Hi Scott,

Thank you for the kind words and thanks a lot for suggestions. The only issue with an ‘adjustable image frame’ is that the images would not be able to be automatically re-sized. The built in thumbnail script requires pre-set dimensions for the images. We will certainly consider adding the adjustable image frame for more advanced users.

Cheers and Blessings to you.


Great work on the theme! I love it, however, I’m having many issues regarding jquery slider images and cu3er images that don’t show up on my homepage.

You can see the example here :


Even though the images are linked to the correct path for CU3ER, and the “featured image” is checked in Home Post 1 and Home Post 2 – a ”#” appears instead of the image.

Can you help me out ?

Thanks a lot !


Hi there Visio,

Glad that you are liking the new theme.

The thumbnail issue is likely related to folder permissions on the web server. Please check out the FAQ page for more details about how to remedy this issue: http://themeforest.net/item/karma-clean-and-modern-wordpress-theme/faq/168737

As per the homepage, it will be very helpful if we can log into your site and have a closer look behind the scenes so we can help to remedy the issue. Please kindly email us temporary wordpress login information and we will have a look and get you all squared away.

Excellent theme. One of my top 3 purchases on ThemeForest!

Two quick issues.

1) For some reason the fonts display differently on Safari than FF. This doesn’t seem to happen with other themes and sites. Any tips?

2) My Featured Images are not showing on the slider or blog posts. I have changed the permissions to 777 as referenced in an earlier comment but no change. Any thoughts?



Hi There,

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you like the theme. :)

As per your questions:

1) The fonts are displaying nicely in Safari on our end. Which version of Safari and which operating system on your end?

2) Some web servers require whitelisting for the thumbnail script to function properly. We have provided a message below. Please kindly forward this message to your hosting provider tech support and they should have no troubles getting you up and running.

Message to Hosting:

Dear Host,

I recently updated my WordPress website with a theme that uses the timthumb.php thumbnail generator.

I have learned that in order for it to work properly My Hosting provider may need to change a few settings for my website. When I try to run timthumb I receive a 404 error.

I need the following rules [1234234,340151, 340153] added to mod_security for my website. I may also require the following 2 items added to my .htaccess file:

SecFilterEngine Off

SecFilterScanPost Off

Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.
