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 Billyf, I’m sorry if I answer only now but I’m traveling in these days.


Problem 1) “Editor not Work” I uninstalled all plugins, and it seemed to be a problem of incompatibility with google fonts. I finally fixed the problem. thanks

Problem 2) “Images not clickable in homepage” I would like to delete the opportunity to click images from the homepage, I mean that nothing happens when the user click, (no a link to a post page); to the maximum there may be a lightbox on foto.

Can you help me?

Thank you so much !

Hi Marcogrande,

Glad that you have identified the issue for the first problem. As for your 2nd question, you can just set the Post Format as ‘Link’ and put # in the new field which appears there and they will now not do anything when you click on them.

Hope that helps.

Thank you.

Thank you, good idea. Have a nice day !

hi! I upgraded my wordpress 4.3.1 and will not let me edit or create post.

The error seems to be the theme, as you change it and returned to work.

Download the latest version of the subject, but is still not resolved. Matrix V2.2.1

I await your response

Hi goblincreative,

The latest update is targeted to solve this issue which was introduced in Wordpress 4.3. Can you send the administration login details to me through email so that I can check out what went wrong? Sometimes it’s possible that the old files were still being loaded eventhough you have updated it.


mail account that I can send you what you ask me ?


You can send it through my profile page, at the bottom right of it there’s a contact form.


This is a great theme. Does anyone know how to easily change the orde of the tiles? Have not figured that out yet.

Hi in2contracts,

Thanks for purchasing my theme, I’m glad you like it! By default, the tiles are arranged by their published date so latest tile will appear at top left, and you will reorder by changing the published date / time.

However, you can also use this plugin to change the order which some clients have had success using it in the past : https://wordpress.org/plugins/intuitive-custom-post-order/

If there’s still any problems, feel free to contact me.

Thank you.
