Congratulation for this great theme.


-Can you upload a preview or a screenshot of the other backgrounds colors (l prefer a lighter background).

-Is there a possibility to supress the post meta data (dates, author etc.)

-Also, do you plan on keep updating the theme with the future releases of wordpress ?

Thanks !


Hi, Themepro!

1. See http://goo.gl/4S4Kg, but in this case it is necessary to change the color of some fonts.

2. No, but if you need it, then i can prepare for you personally, without meta-data. Specify only what and where you want to remove. Perhaps this feature will appear in future versions.

3. Yes, theme will be updated.

Bright and eye-catching design))!

Excellent theme.

Few remarks.

1) I’m surprised a lot of wordpress developers are not using the Piecemaker in their themes. It is pretty simple to incorporate and a real deal clincher. However, I think you should provide alternate non flash slider content such as the nivo-slider as a fall back for ->Ipad/Iphone users.

2) A few more shortkeys wouldn’t hurt, such as toggles and buttons etc.

3) Can you provide a few screenshots from the backend. What does your backend setup look like?

Other than that good luck with your sales :)


Thank you for your kind words ;-)

2. I plan to add it in later versions.

3. Does not look as nice as the themes of other authors, yet it looks like this: http://goo.gl/Lkobm


Look good to me :)

How can I remove everything on the Homepage and put my own stuff? Such as the sidebar I do not want..


Hi, CompuHow.

In Wordpress admin menu go to “Pages -> Add new” and create your static page. After creating a new static page, publish it. Then go to “Settings -> Readings” in section “Front page displays” set the option “A static page (select below)”. From the drop-down list, select your static page and click “Save Changes”. Now your page will be displayed on the home page.

Thanks for the quick reply. Managed to get it to work. Thanks a lot. Also, if I don’t use that method how would I put the slider in the homepage, because using the shortcode in the theme isn’t working.


What shortcode you are using and what page?

Scrap that, I got it working, I just edited the home.php file to get rid of it. However I’m having a problem. I installed the piecemaker 2 plugin but when I select piecemaker from the themeoptions it doesn’t show but when I use the ‘other’ way it does work, however the text below it shifts over to the left. If you wish to have a look it’s right here – http://www.elite8host.co


Try to choose in the options “piecemaker” and change the paths to images in the file wp-content/themes/Ocean/piecemaker.xml, http://www.elite8host.co/main/ instead of http://2s-studio.com/wp/

I’m not able to install nivo slider nor piecemaker 2 (I thought they were embedded in this theme) can you give me help or simply download links? thanks www.fotup.com/wordpress



Hi Max!

Piecemaker 2 and Nivo slider already built into the theme. But you can also setup the slider as a plug-in. See screenshot – http://goo.gl/wYeDr.

sorry Zerge don’t know how to do, can you please help me? Don’t know where to put images to be shown in the slider. Thanks, be patient! MAx


If you want to use the built-in Piecemaker, you must edit file wp-content/themes/Ocean/piecemaker.xml (paths to images, video etc.). Described in more detail here – http://www.modularweb.net/content/en/piecemaker/documentation.pdf

Please look at this: I can’t load htree images because I don’t have the options.. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1957163/posts.zip ..

Error :(

sorry, try this link, http://www.fotoviaggisport.it/gallerienuove/provafotup/ , this image shows your guide on the right and my wordpress post on the left, as you can see, I don’t have the options, can you tell me where I’m doing wrong? thanx

You need to activate Custom Fields in Screen Options tab, http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Panels#Screen_Options

I just purchased this and I can’t seem to get it to install. It keeps saying that it cannot move the file Oceans.zip into Wordpress. This is the only theme I haven’t been able to install. Any ideas?


Hi ElizabethBeasleyProductions!

Can make screenshot please?

Hmm, Print Screen will not work for me for some reason. However, this is the error I receive.

The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/content/20/8190520/html/ebp/wp-content/uploads/2011/08.

I have tried uploading the Wordpress Premium Theme (downloaded .zip) and also the Oceans.zip which is inside the above mentioned .zip.

Unfortunately I am new to website design and I do not have a clue how to address this situation per those forum threads =/


Need to change the permission on the folder /home/content/20/8190520/html/ebp/wp-content/ . This can be done using Filezilla (http://filezilla-project.org/). In this thread is well documented – http://wordpress.org/support/topic/media-upload-problem-the-uploaded-file-could-not-be-moved-to-error

I am using GoDaddy for hosting (currently on the phone with them) and we can’t figure this out either. Any thoughts?

I’m getting these errors when I try to install the theme. What do I need to do?

Warning: fopen(/home6/kinetif3/public_html/wp-content/themes/ocean-premium-wordpress-theme3/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home6/kinetif3/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4339

oops forgot to unzip file to Ocean.zip theme.. fixed sorry about that!

I have gone in and changed the permissions via Filezilla and it still will not upload. Same error every time. I called GoDaddy back and they said they said it will still not even be recognized. This is getting rather frustrating…

Ahah! Had to go in and manually install it through Filezilla. It works. Now a question…

I have two videos posted via shortcode in two separate posts…however they are not showing up on the home page. I get this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home/content/20/8190520/html/ebp/wp-content/themes/Ocean/index.php on line 1

For both videos.

Second, when clicking the archives, only one video shows up.

www.elizabethbeasleyproductions.com/ebp is our work in progress. Any ideas? Thank you!


1. Try embed code from Vimeo — http://2s-studio.com/screenshots/ocean_newpost.jpg

Result — http://2s-studio.com/wp/

2. You have only two post, so they appear in the archive.

so I’m unable to change anything in the Ocean Theme menu, and the slider thing just is not showing up at all. Any suggestions?



Hi sarahleanne!

You do as described in the documentation?

1. “Create a New Menu” — page 28

2. “Sliders” — page 8

Everything is just ;)

The plugins all want to be updated when i upload them, and things aren’t quite as they are shown in the documentation so i am still confused. Some things came together, but I’m still lost on the slider thing. If it’s built in, it is not clear to me how to use it, if i have to find it, it’s just not coming together.


1. By default – http://2s-studio.com/screenshots/piecemaker_default.jpg

Slides are located in /wp-content/themes/ocean/contents

Paths to the slides in file /wp-content/themes/ocean/piecemaker.xml (need to change the paths before using the slider)

2. If you want to use another slider (not built-in), see – http://2s-studio.com/screenshots/ocean_piecemaker_sshot.png
