sorry for that. i’ve contacted the support for that issue.. hope they resolve this in no time.

I love your templates ! I am considering Locus, and I have a few questions before I purchase.

I am sorry if these questions have been asked before,

Is it easy to add a page ? Comment out a page? For example, I dont need the portfolio page.

On the services page, If I want to add more services will the box expand?

Thanks so much for making these wonderful templates Lisa


Thank you for your interest.

You can remove/comment out the sections you don’t need.

All sections will expand depending on the content.

Hi there elemis,

Thanks for the great theme. I am having problems however with the contact form not submitting. I did download this sometime ago, will i need to re-download and update the contact folder?? Please see the website at www.jamescaddymusic.com it is currently under construction but getting there. Thanks for your help in advance.



The version you use is old and since then we had a big update with which the template was built from scratch. We use a different contact form now. While you still don’t have much content on your website, we recommend updating to the latest version.


Just wondering if it is possible to ad reCaptcha to the contact page, and if it is how I’d go about doing it. Cheers


Unfortunately it is not possible to add captcha to the contact page.

Hi, my contact box dosen´t work. If i send a Mail i get the awnser: Thank you. Your messsage has been received. But the Mail dosen´t reach me… Do you have a idea why? The E-Mail is correct, and its working if i send a Mail from my Mail Program.

Here is the code:

<!- Begin Form ->
    <form class="forms" action="contact/form-handler.php" method="post">
  1. <label>Name</label> <input type="text" name="name" value="" class="text-input required" title="" />
  2. <label>Email</label> <input type="text" name="email" value="" class="text-input required email" title="" />
  3. <label>Betreff</label> <input type="text" name="subject" value="" class="text-input required" title="" />
  4. <label>Text</label> <textarea name="message" class="text-area required"></textarea>
  5. <input type="hidden" name="hidden" value="" />
  6. <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="submit" class="btn-submit light" />
<input type="hidden" name="v_error" id="v-error" value="Required" /> <input type="hidden" name="v_email" id="v-email" value="info@patrickscholz-photodesign.de" /> </fieldset> </form> <!- End Form ->

We just tested your form and received a success message that the message is sent. The form script seems to work properly. Not receiving the messages shows the issue is related to the server. Your hosting may require STMP authentication. Have you tried entering the SMTP details? You can find the instructions in the help documentation.

Hi elemis,

5 month ago you wrote this (an answer to danagivens): You need to duplicate “Portfolio” part in style.css. “Quicksand” and “Caption” parts in style/js/custom.js to have a second Portfolio.

I also need a second and a third portfolio, but I do not understand how to duplicate the part of quicksand in the custom.js.

That’s what I’ve done so far, but it is not working correctly: http://www.nordsehtest.de/papp-gea/index.html

Please give me an example of the code in the custom.js … Thanks in advance … Gert


Our support includes fixing bugs and answering questions related to problems with the included features in our items. Debugging or providing guides on how to make custom modifications to items is unfortunately not part of our support.

I was wandering if it is possible to create a menu with multiple levels. Just like the main menu here on themeforest which display an additional level when hovering over e.g. the “All files” menuitem.

Have you/someone created a menu for this theme?


Unfortunately the theme doesn’t have a multilevel menu option. You will need to make this customization yourself.

That shouldn’t be too hard, but foolish to do, if it was already written by someone else :) Btw. thank you for an awesome theme!

Hello, I want to buy this theme but I’ve got one question – is it easy to change colors of menu links? And one more – can pictures from home page be bigger?


Thank you for your interest in Locus.

We can help you with changing color of the menu links.

The homepage image heights can be larger, but the widths cannot be changed.

Hello elemis,

Is there a way to click on an image in Fancybox (Portfolio) and have the visitor directed to another website? There are 4 images in my Portfolio that I’d like hyperlinked to 4 new web pages if that’s possible. I’ve hunted around Fancybox forums/help but I can’t make anything work on the Locus template.

BTW, I’m very pleased with this template. Excellent! I’m modifying the template on a local, virtual-server so I don’t have a live link to my site to share with you just yet.


Thank you. Linking the caption will work for me. Although I believe it might be possible to do what I was hoping—to have the image “clickable”. I found many Fancybox users asking similar questions—I just couldn’t successfully alter the Javascript to make the Locus template work as they had—hence I thought I’d put the question to you guys.

Here’s an example which more or less does what I was hoping to do: http://jsfiddle.net/voigtan/jJpAM/3/

If you could determine which HTML/JS needs tweaking in the Locus files, I would be very grateful indeed. But putting a link on the caption will work also, so thank you again for providing that option.

Best regards.


Fancybox is the first script in style/js/custom.js and you will edit the a tags of portfolio thumbnails in HTML.

OK, I’ll try that and see if I can figure it out. For now, the caption linking is working just fine and my site is up and running. Thanks again for your speedy help!

Hello, Very nice template! Does it support right-to-left languages such as Hebrew?


Thank you for your interest in Locus. Unfortunately there is no direct support for right-to-left. You will need to implement it yourself.

Hi Elemis,

I know you have answered this 9 months back, but I was wanting to add to RedardDesigns comment, it would be great to have Captcha added as this does appear to generate quite a bit of spam right now, otherwise its a great template!!


If you send us an email via the contact form on our profile page, we can send you the updated form code to prevent the spam.


please test the actual theme on a retina iPad. The background is not fixed.

Background-attachment:fixed is not supported on iOS. There is a hack mentioned in this thread which you can try: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3011226/using-background-attachmentfixed-in-safari-on-the-ipad/12770538#12770538

How can I make that links in the text scroll to the position like the menu?

For having smooth scroll effect, please open style/js/custom.js and replace

$('.menu, .gototop').localScroll();


$(’.menu, .gototop, body’).localScroll();



it is posible to add the actual anchor tag (#contact etc…) to the domain when scroll or click on a link?

Yes, direct linking to a section is possible like this: http://themes.iki-bir.com/locusv4/#contact

Yes but it is not automatically change on scrolling.

Please search for the following in style/js/custom.js

    $('#menu, .gototop').localScroll();

and replace it with:

    $('#menu, .gototop').localScroll({
        hash: true

This is a fantastic template! Extremely easy to use and customize. Everything worked flawlessly, and it was extremely easy to add and take out elements. Very well done, and thank you!

Thanks for the lovely feedback :)

Nice template, but I have problem with contact form. How to load the index.html after sending a message? Is possible to use:

header( 'Location: http://www.mysite.com' ) ;

BTW. I am very sorry I only speak a little English


Unfortunately no direct option is available for loading index.html after the message is sent. The form included shows success message without page refresh. We’re not sure if the code provided will work, you will need to test it.

Hi, I bought you theme and it’s great but I’m having a problem with the contact form. I made the edits like in the help document in regards to the smtp, username and password and who would receive the email and when I fill the contact form and press submit it would say ‘Error. Please try again’ and not send. I checked the form-handler.php file and there doesn’t seem to be a problem with the coding so I’m having a problem pinpointing why it isn’t working. The email server didn’t have a problem sending an email in the previous that I made.

Error means there is something wrong with the hosting settings. You should contact your hosting provider. Some settings might have been changed on your hosting. They might be blocking the mail() function for example.

Hi, love the theme. I noticed that the font displays differently in Firefox and Chrome. In Firefox, it’s almost as if the font is set to bold compared to Chrome. Is this something in the code or just a basic difference in browsers? I haven’t had the chance to check other browsers yet.


If you remove the following css codes from body element in style.css Chrome will display the fonts like Firefox does:

-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;

Hello, do you interested in partnership for WP development? I am ready to implement original (for TF) features. Not multi-demo theme in about 2 weeks.

Thank you for your message. We already have a partnership for WP development.

I cant get the contact form to submit on http://www.naturalbuildingspecialists.co.uk/ any ideas?


Hosting settings might be the cause of this issue. Could you please ask your hosting administrator to check that if mail() function in PHP parser is configured properly?
