Hi Red_Sun,

I just purchased your theme, can you please help me set-up the site to look like the Demo version?

Thank you so much!


Hey there! Yeah, get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll help you set up the site. Cheers!

Hello, I have WPML up and running and just about done with making translations to content through the page interface and Strings Translation panel.

However, I’m having trouble getting several interface titles to update, for instance “View Details”, “Read More”, “Go”, “Search Here”.

Next I’m also not seeing that I can translate the captions in the Images that I’m using in the homepage slider. I appreciate some assistance with that. Thanks!



Regarding the first point, I haven’t been able to find the strings in the WPML translation screens in order to translate that copy.

As far as the slider captions, I’ve updated captions in other themes I’ve just set the media to be multi-lingual and can update the copy. If you have a work around, please forward, thanks!


I just checked the default .po file, and the string “View Details”, “Read More”, “Go” and “Search Here” are definitely in the file. Open your .po file with PoEdit and click Edit > Find to make sure they appear in your file as well. If you can’t find them, try clicking “Update” (3rd symbol).

In order to translate the slider caption follow these steps:

1. Add a second caption meta box for the second language. You can do that in includes/metaboxes/config-meta-boxes.php, line 213

Copy the code for the SLIDER Caption, add it right below and rename it, for example to “SLIDER Caption language 2”, also rename the value to _slidercaption2:

        $form_fields["slidercaption2"] = array( 
        "label" => __('SLIDER Caption language 2','gxg_textdomain'), 
        "input" => "text",
        "value" => get_post_meta($post->ID, "_slidercaption2", true),
        "helps" => __('Slider Caption. To be used with SLIDER images only. Use </br> for line breaks','gxg_textdomain'),

Right below, within the function “gg_image_attachment_fields_to_save”, copy the code for the slider caption, add it underneith and change slidercaption to slidercaption2:

 if( isset($attachment['sliderurl']) ){  
            update_post_meta($post['ID'], '_slidercaption2', $attachment['slidercaption2']);  

2. In the file inlcudes/metaboxes/inc/helpers.php, line 270, add:

'slidercaption' => get_post_meta( $id , '_slidercaption2', true),

3. Assuming your primary language is English, the language code is ‘en’ and your secondary language is French, the language code is ‘fr’, make the following change to the file slider.php, line 19:


$caption = $image['slidercaption'];


<?php if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='en'); ?>
    $caption = $image['slidercaption'];

<?php elseif(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='fr'); ?>
    $caption = $image['slidercaption2'];

<?php endif; ?>

Hi there… I just purchased your wonderful theme – almost everything works perfect, I just got one thing.. is it possible to add different prices to the menu? Like I got a small and large cola. The same description but different prices – I hope you can help me? I think it’s a easy modification…? :)


Hey there.. I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with the theme :)

Since you can add any kind of text into the price field, not just numbers, I recommend you to add something like

small € 2,00 / large € 4,00

I have something similar at the bottom of the drinks page on my demo site: http://www.themes.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/drinks/

Hi again!

I tried to set up the captcha for the contact form because i am having serious issues with spam, could you let me know where am i supposed to add the code from captcha, i tried in the template-contact.php but its giving me an error. Hope you can help me! thanks in advance!


Hi! If you are having problems with contact form spam, I actually recommend you to use the “Contact Form 7” and “Really simple CAPTCHA” plugin and use them instead of the built-in contact form.


Example code to be used with the plugin (the “button1” class will style the send button nicely):

[text* your-name] Name
[email* your-email] Email
[textarea your-message 70x10] Message
[captchac captcha-848] [captchar captcha-848]
<input id="submitmail" class="button1" type="submit" value="Send" />


Firstly great template!!

I have a little issue and cant seem to find the answer in your comments.

I am trying to set up my food tab at the moment and am having isses reusing a page for multiple categories.

Under the food tab, I’d like to have separate tabs for Salads,Tapas, Mains, Entree, etc, but i am struggling to set this up.

Can you please advise if this is a solution to this?

Thanks in advance, Chris


Hey Chris, I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with the theme :)

You can actually find detailed step by step instructions in my documentation – scroll down to “Setting up the Menu Pages”: http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/readme/readme.html#mytabs=3

Please let me know if you need any more info.

Thanks for the reply, it was right there in front of me!!

All sorted now, thanks again :-)

Hey Red,

bought your theme for a client – it’s nice and clean. Client is having a week long ‘Food event’ happening at different locations. I would like to add the following features and was wondering if you (or anybody else here) already have something:
  • Add location to event (so it shows in content sidebar, i.e. under Date, share, etc.)
  • Add click to add to calendar link/button (ics or similar)
  • Open Table integration

Cheers and thanks for nice Theme! Mike


Hey Mike! I’m glad to hear you enjoy working with the theme!

Unfortunately I don’t have any experience with ics (or similar) or Open Table.

As for the location, you would have to register a new custom field in the file includes/metaboxes/config-meta-boxes.php, around line 47:

            'name' =>   __('Location','gxg_textdomain'),            
            'desc' => '',        
            'id' => $prefix . 'eventlocation',      
            'type' => 'text',
            'std' => '',                    

and then display the location (if you want including a little pin icon) in the file single-events.php, line 25:

$eventlocation = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'gxg_eventlocation', true);

and line 144:

         <?php if ($eventlocation) { ?>
                <i class="fa fa-map-marker"></i>
                <?php echo $eventlocation; ?>
         <?php } ?> 


Is there a way to paginate the menu? I have 100 cupcake flavors and would like to only show 20 per page. Is that possible?


Hey there.. thanks for purchasing LemonChili!

The menu pages can not be paginated. You would have to group the cupcake flavors into categories and create multiple pages…

I’m trying to change the background for individual pages. I’ve read through comments and see that you keep recommending the Background Manager plugin – I’ve tried this and it doesn’t accomplish what I’m looking for.

Please look at this: http://www.themes.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/events/#

The background image of the water / chairs aren’t the issue. That background image is OK. What I want to change is the opaque grey “page” background that holds in all content/widgets for each page. I would like to make the background for that a set image to give more of a “menu” feel to the menu/drink pages. Where in the code will I find these settings or is there a quick CSS to add?

Preferably I would like to know where exactly in the CSS that is located because I will have different images for different pages.


jknibbs Purchased

Thanks for the reply, it works without issue if I were to change every page but when I use the code you provided:

(#page-id-123 #content….)

It does not work.

I have two pages url.com/food & /drinks that I want to change the background for. I have attempted to use #page-id-food, as that is what the page is called as well as the ID# provided by clicking on “get shortlink” which states that /food and /drinks are page ID 18 and 20.

Neither work or update anything, but the minute I remove the page and make it (#content) it works fine.


Can you send me a link to your site please?

Hi, Can I expect in future update a TripAdvisor social icon or maybe a little more advanced social icon manager that allows creating new social icons?


Hey there! I’ll definitely add a TripAdvisor icon in the next update as it is a common request, along with a few other requested icons like Skype, LinkedIn, Yelp…

How do I change the color of the hover over on the menu items?

Thanks in advance


Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS and change the color value to whatever you like:

.sf-menu li a:hover, .sf-menu a:focus, .sf-menu a:hover, .sf-menu a:active, .sf-menu ul a:hover, .sfHover a, li.sfHover a, .sf-menu li.selected a, .sf-menu li.current-cat a, .sf-menu li.current-cat-parent a, .sf-menu li.current_page_item a, .current-menu-parent a.sf-with-ul {
    background-color: #6ba437;

.sf-menu li li {
    background-color: #6ba437;

hello, cool theme! Can i ask you a question before I buy?

1) on the homepage can you span 3 content blocks instead of 2 (ie before hours / latest images, I want 3 content blocks to span across, kinda like “about block”. I want to do 3 blocks like this going to different pages on website, how do I ? 2) Can i put images in these blocks instead of the icons you have at the top of these blocks, and can these images/photos span full width of block not just width of the icon you have now?



Hey there… thanks for your interest in LemonChili!

Ok, I hope I understand you right. If I don’t, please send me a mockup of what you mean…

If you add content into the editor of the page that is using the “home” template, it will display above the widget area (hours, images….). In order to add 3 content blocks, you can use the column shortcodes: http://www.themes.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/shortcodes-columns/

If you create content blocks via shortcodes, you can add any text or images. But as for the existing widgets like hours widget, images widget…, it is not possible to add images or photos instead of the icons. You can use icons from this list only: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/


Hello, is there a way to speed up the frontage slider? I have installed W3 cache and EEEEW image optimiser with no change. Its just so slow?

Can you take a look I have had many people say they can never see the slides due to loading.

Thanks! http://www.bluemini.com.au

Hey there.. thanks for purchasing LemonChili!

Yeah, the slider doesn’t look right on your site. I think you have some broken images in your slider. That may have happened when you updated the theme. Can you check that please?



Hey Red Sun, No it was loading slow prior the update. I was hoping the update would fix it. All images are fine but all images in the slider have a blank image above them? I cannot delete these blank images. Something is wrong. Ill send logins via email so you can see it.

hi, if i would buy the theme. is it possible for me to make this website good looking, without any knowledge of programming (php, html etc.)? thank you

i purchased long time ago a template. and it had visual composer. so it was very easy to edit.

how is is it inlemonchillii template ?


Hey there… thanks for your interest in LemonChili!

You don’t need any coding knowledge to build the site. The front page is fully widgetized and you can drag and drop the desired widgets like “hours widget”, “featured dish” widget, etc. into the home sidebar. Menu items, team members and events are created via the custom post types. It’s as simple as writing a blog post.

For any more info on how to set up the site, take a look at the documentation. It includes step by step instructions on how to set up the site: http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/readme/readme.html#mytabs=3

If you want a quick start, install the demo content to make your site look like the theme demo and go from there. Information on how to do that you can find in the documentation as well (under “Installation”).


Hello Red Sun,

Love the theme been using it for quite some time, but now with 3.9.2 along of things wont work, cant update/delete home page sliders. In admin I click any of edit options and it just jumps to top of page. PLEASE HELP!


Hey there! I’m glad to hear you like the theme :)

Which theme version are you using?




Ok.. can you please get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page and send me your link and login info please so that I can take a closer look at the problem?

Hi there,

I just wanna know how to change the order of the menu categories.

Thanks for your help, Flo


Hi Flo!

As recommended in the documentation http://www.files.red-sun-design.com/lemonchili/readme/readme.html#mytabs=3, you can use a plugin to sort menu categories. For example I tested this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-taxonomy-sort/ and this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-taxonomy-order-ne/

Hi there,

I have created food menu items and numbered them #1, #2, #3 etc.

However, when I view them on the page they are sorted by DESCENDING order. Is there any way to sort them by ASCENDING order/
