Support Sux!!!! DONT BUY !!!!!!!!

@kingofalaska – do you by any chance know how to fix why my blog posts are being cut off??

SM Icons in footer??? you mean the “get in touch” ??? If you enable & enter them in at the backend cpanel they should show. Do they not?

feel free to PM me on my profile if needed.

ok. thought it was fixed. guess not. back to the drawing board


I had the same problem with the lightbox issue. This was the problem: “Hi Everyone, I think a majority of the problems everyone is experiencing with plugins not working with this theme is the fact that wp_head(); is commented out in the header file so when plugins are installed, their scripts cannot be automatically called in the header. I have no idea why this was commented out, nor have I seen it before. Perhaps the developer can shed some light? In the meantime it seems to have fixed some of my issues. For those that are not familiar with editing themes, open the header.php file go to line 39 you will see //wp_head(); just remove the // and save and it should work. I hope that this helps some people. “

I then used jquery colorbox plugin from the wp repository and my gallery lightbox now works.

Hello AtiX,

I have downloaded your theme. However, upon installing it I receive the following message: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_pagenavi() (previously declared in /hermes/bosoraweb038/b1374/ipg.sharbraham/wp-content/plugins/wp-pagenavi/core.php:12) in /hermes/bosoraweb038/b1374/ipg.sharbraham/wp-content/themes/novatorix/lib/functions/wp-pagenavi.php on line 180.

What am I doing wrong?

One difference I noticed was that in the readme text the file name is NovatorixHTML.zip and the file downloaded is named Novatorix.zip. Could this be a different version?

This is template has a good design part with nice and considerable psd resources. Coding side is absolutely TERRIFIC ! However I got it for free as November’s Free File of the Month. So thank you for screen experience and I hope you’ll have a chance to improve your coding skills.


First of all thank you for the help. Your awesome. When i edited the header.php nothing changed that im aware of so i also add the jquery colorbox and that made the thumbnail in my pictures gallery page work correctly. However for the videos it still does not. Also i know this may seem dumb but i can’t figure out how to add more photos to my “albums” How come that’s not clear to begin with? Can you also help with that?

This template has a huge amount of bugs. You will end up in wasting time if you need something that works without troubles. Scripts and CSS are included inline rather than with wp_enqueue_style or wp_enqueue_script … this is an overkill … and is just an example of what the author was able to do …. :shocked:

@VeronicaClare Thanks if you have an idea for video, let us know too.

Hi Guys

Honestly, I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth (this theme being free and all) but, I can’t understand how this template was passed as it is.

I am not using video on my theme, so sorry, I don’t know how to help with that and don’t have time now to investigate.

I will share a couple more bugs that I have found that I corrected so thought I would share.

I created a page for my home page and assigned it as the front page in my wordpress settings. I also set the page to use the homepage template that comes with the theme.

Firstly the whole adding front page content through the backend admin panel did not work for me, I had to manually edit the homepage template to add my images and text. I am not sure if this worked for anyone else.

Secondly, I noticed that the homepage template does not call the header file so any changes you made to your themes header file will have to be made in the head here too.

Thirdly, my dropdown menus did not work at all for the front page at all. After much frustration I ended up replacing some of the homepage templates head code. Here is the complete head code I used, from the top of the page to the closing </head> tag. I do not proclaim to be an expert, but this worked for me and it may work for you.

With regards to the gallery album. I am not sure how you are using galleries. I just used normal wordpress galleries and images are easily added using the media tab. Have a look at this user guide for some help. http://easywpguide.com/easy-wp-guide-v2-3-for-wordpress-3-4/adding-images-other-media/insert-an-image-gallery/ There is lots of great info for wordpress users here, with great screenshots and examples. Hope this is what you were looking for and I am not going in a completely different direction LOL :0P

Yes, while I was able to get this theme up… I had another theme developer look at it… he said, bad bad bad! When you cant even backcode a way to make a plugin work, cmon now. It seems like to me the theme is for anyone who doesn’t need to edit anything and doesnt want plugins.

best of luck to all

hello i am almos finish with my site but seem to have a major problem getting the post to be full it keep giving me a a shorten version and not the full text content. how can i fix this? http://jesustabtt.org/church-news/news/

Hi flowmaster1

Unfortunately the developer calls the wring function in the single file :0(. What you need to do is open single.php and on line 17 replace <?php the_excerpt(__('Read the rest of this entry »','Novatorix')); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>

That should do the trick :0)


Thank you! worked like a charm!

Not sure what to think about this theme… No Gallery or Image Posting in Posts Theme setting for Blog shuts off all categories, so I cannot post a blog Light box works on some devices but none of mine Home Page Slider is not visible on an iPad

However, I love my site. If these problems are only associated with the free download, I will buy, but I need to look else where if I cannot resolve these problems.

Hi I got this theme a few weeks ago and im trying to post a blog post and when I do its not allowing me to see the full blog post its showing the summary. I have Full text selected but still not working its just showing [...]

Could you get back to me please thanks

Does anyone know how to fix the lightbox (prettyphoto) in the gallery section? Also, the menu changes to a green color when the page has been selected with the arsenic.css…does anyone know how to alter the color?

Appreciate any help that is given, Thanks

I located the menu background color in the css and deleted the green color.

I’m still not able to get the lightbox feature to work though. If anyone has a fix it will be much appreciated.
