I’ve been using the social bartender to put links in my footer but I can’t work out how to get them to open in a new tab. I’ve tried installing a plugin which claims to do this but it didn’t have any effect. Can you suggest a way to make this work? Thanks!

Hi onlinepastor,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! If you want it to open in a new tab, you can open \social-bartender\social-bartender.php file in the theme’s folder. Then, find this code at line 107 :
$output .= '<a href="'.$link.'" class="sh-sb-link">';
Change that to this :
$output .= '<a href="'.$link.'" class="sh-sb-link" target="_blank">';

That should do what you want.

Thank you.

Thank you!

You’re welcome! If there’s still any problems, feel free to contact me.


I’ve just purchased your theme. Looks amazing… As I’m new with wordpress I just want to know how to create my own pages. Do I have to get into the HTML or PHP or CSS code in order to have my site looks like the demo?

I’ve already tried other theme and there were compatible with Visual Composer. So it was pretty easy. I am ready to go on the code, but sincerly, I’d rather don’t want to go in. Any advice will be very welcome.

Thanks for your help.


Hi Lymonjuice,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! To get it to look like the demo, you just need to install the demo with a single click. If you want WooCommerce demo, please install that plugin first. Then, go to Appearance > Import Demo Data and click the import button to import the demo content.

The theme doesn’t rely on Visual Composer (or other backend content plugin) since it doesn’t need to be that complicated / ‘heavy’. It works exactly like how WordPress should work and you can create / edit content as you normally would on a WordPress website.

The only difference comes at the live tiles which are clearly labelled under ‘Tile Settings’ when you create a post. If you have any questions or problems using the theme, feel free to contact me for clarification.

Thank you.

after the update to Wordpress 4.3 we can`t seem to edit pages anymore or write articles. Anther problem, we wanted to update the version of yor Matrix Version, but it`s stuck in 2.1 and we can`t update to 2.2. Which basically runied our whole site design. Is there something wrong? Thanks a lot!

Hi Tariver,

It appears that there’s a bug in one of the files (scripts/new-mce4.js) which breaks at the new WordPress version. I have already fixed it and issued a V2.2.1 version which will be available here within a day and you will only need to replace that file to fix the bug.

Thank you and sorry about the problem.

Hi I bought the Matrix – Responsive WordPress Theme, and I really like the original style.

But today when I installed the latest release V2.2.1, I can not work the editor of articles, pages, events etc. The editor does not work, not in visual, no html version. I have a few plugins installed. What will be the problem?

Then I have another question. And ‘possible to remove the possibility of links in articles the frontpage? Thank you for attention!

Hi Marcogrande,

Thanks for purchasing my theme! The latest version of the theme is there to specifically fix the problem and it worked on everyone with this problem previously.

I would suggest you to first disable all plugins and see whether it works. The latest WordPress version has some changes which could cause this problem if the plugins which you have installed have not been updated. If that still doesn’t work, can you please send me your WordPress admin login details through my profile page so that I can take a look at it?

As for the other question, do you mean you want to remove the ‘Read More’ links or you don’t want the tiles to link to anywhere (i.e. clicking on tiles won’t do anything)?

Thank you.
