I purchased the theme last night for use on my site at http://bit.ly/gOwA4S. It’s installed and up and running; thanks for the easy-to-work-with theme.

I have found two bugs and would like some guidance on how to fix it.

1. From my site, go to any page other than the homepage. The <title> is not appearing correctly—it leaves off the site title, and contains only the defined separator and the page or post title. I think it should instead be of the format:

Site Name | Page Name

But it instead just shows as

| Page Name

I’ve noticed several other users above have the same problem.

2. The menu icon on the left of the header area is awesome. If I click on it, I love how it slides over and the menu pops up. Click again and it collapses the menu and the menu icon goes back. However, I noticed if you use the left and right arrow keys on the page, it also controls the opening and closing of the menu. However, if you use the arrow keys, the menu icon does not move over. And since it doesn’t move over, it just ends up over the avator and intro text on the menu and doesn’t look right.

I have not tested other browsers or platforms yet, but this is a consistently recurring problem in Chrome (latest build) on OS X.

Thank you for your help,



That actually seems to have fixed it. So the question is—minifying doesn’t actually change code, it just condenses it. Any thoughts on what’s going on that causes it to break this?

I’ll exclude the general.js file from the CloudFlare minifyer, but your suggestions here would be appreciated.

Thanks so much. Dan


I’m sorry, I spoke too soon. It’s only working in Internet Explorer. Safari and Chrome are both still having the same issue, even with all minifying, all caching, and all use of a CDN turned off.



Some javascript code just can’t be minified.

The sidebar toggle is working just fine on Chrome, Firefox and Safari from my end. May I remind you that the theme only support IE9 and above. Can you try to hard refresh the browser?

Hello. (again;)

Is there an easy way to change backgroundcolors depending of what kind of post. For example videopost have black bg, photopost white and gallery grey. A short string of code in each category, maybe?




I’m sorry but the theme doesn’t support custom background for each post / page.


I installed the tumblr version of this theme and like it a lot- the layout is beautiful.

I am having one glaring problem though- the site name doesn’t appear in the main header- it just says “Penoolis.” I dug through the code trying to figure out if there was an easy way to edit it and get it to display properly, but I couldn’t find one. Here’s the site:





Please post your question in http://themeforest.net/item/penoolis-responsive-tumblr-blog-themes/discussion/5666121 so we could verify your purchase.


Excited to try this clean theme. Looks absolutely great! Is child theme “supported” (if there’s such a definition)?





Open /penoolis/functions/theme-functions/theme-functions.php then find this code:

<a class="addthis_button_pinterest_pinit" pi:pinit:layout="horizontal" pi:pinit:url="<?php echo get_permalink( get_the_id() ); ?>"></a>

then replace it with this:

<a class="addthis_button_linkedin_counter"></a>

Thank you! Another quick question – is there an xml file with demo posts that I could import?



Not at the moment, sorry.

Hi! Can You help me? Where do I delete the date, Posted by, Category and No Comment Yet after the title? I need to remove this line with this information



You need to remove all reference to this code from the theme files:

<?php echo warrior_post_meta(); // load post meta ?>


A quick question, if I may.

I hate using plugins for things that really don’t have any meaningful reason to use them given plugins add performance weight and are frequently not compatible with themes. That’s especially true of social media icons, so I’m hard-coding the addition of a Like, Twitter, and +1 button.

I’ve followed Facebook’s developer guidance for adding the button to a page. I’m stuck on one thing though.

To display the Like button, I’m to insert the following code wherever I want it to appear on my Wordpress page:

<div class="fb-like" data-href="http://dantrimble.com" data-layout="button" data-action="like" data-show-faces="true" data-share="false" />

I want it to show directly underneath Penoolis’ menu icon in my header. I’ve tried several variations of putting their DIV code above into the code below, but it won’t display.

Am I totally off base here?

<!-- Start: Top Header --> <div id="header-top"> <div id="sidebar-panel"> <div id="hidden-header"> <div class="container hidden-header"> <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Sidebar') ) { } ?> </div> </div> <div id="panel"><a class="triggerx" href="javascript:void(0);"><?php _e('Show Panel', 'policygeek'); ?></a></div> </div> </div> <!-- End: Top Header -->


You can simply add the code to /penoolis/header.php file. If you’re using child theme you only need to copy the /penoolis/header.php file to your child theme folder then edit the file.

You can add the codes right after the last line of the file. You might need to add extra css style to make the buttons suits your need (eg. make it align center etc).


That does not at all answer my original question, which I’ve patiently sought an answer for two weeks. Would you kindly re-read the original post?



Have you also added this code right after the opening <body> tag in header.php file?

<div id="fb-root" />
<script>(function(d, s, id) {
  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
  js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&appId=1382177612023676&version=v2.0";
  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>

Wasted about give hours tonight trying to understand how to make a good portfolio page. I’m a beginner so….

I’ve created a portfolio template added it to the menu now how do I make my portfolio look amazing like yours????



You only need to start adding portfolios to the theme from Portfolio > Add New. Make sure the portfolio page is already using “Portfolio” page template.

Hi ThemeWarriors

I purchased this beautiful Theme a while ago. I am really happy with it, although I can not find out, how to use different pictures in the header. Is there a possibility of having different header-pictures site by site (so that the pic changes when I click on a page in the navigation)?

Thanks for your support!



You can change the header background from Appearance > Header. By default, it’s not possible to have different header background on each page.

Hi, forgive me if I’m being stupid, but where do I get a list of shortcodes?

I’m not seeing the toolbar item on the page editor, and the link on the live preview seems only to demonstrate the shortcode functionality but not give information about the codes themselves. I don’t see anything in the manual either.

Many thanks!




You can see list of shortcodes by clicking on the “Insert Shortcode” button from the Add / Edit Post screen. See screenshot http://note.io/SYgYyY



Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned in my initial post the shortcode button no longer exists in the editor – as per your screenshot I only have the “insert media” button. Apparently this is an issue with the 3.9 WP upgrade, but I’ve not seen a fix for it.

Do you have a list of shortcodes I can enter manually in the interim?




It seems like you haven’t installed the shortcode plugin. You can download the shortcode plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcodes-ultimate/

Hi, I am considering buying this great theme, but there is one important thing I would like to know: Is the portfolio section automatically related to the blog posts? (only image posts in my case) In other words, what I am looking for is a Portfolio that is a sum of all images posted in the blog, generated automatically. Thanx in advance



You need to create new portfolio items for each portfolio, it’s not associated with blog posts.

OK thank you. I bought it finally, then I have a few questions (in next post)

Hi again, here are a few things I can’t find out how to solve:

1. I replaced the original logo by mine. In desktop browser, it works fine, but on mobile device (iPhone) it appears very very small, in the top left corner

2. How does the Search bar works? I’ve put it in the sidebar, but anything I ask is answered ‘not found’. For the most I’d like it to work with the categories.

3. How do you change or delete the avatar in the Warrior About Widget?

4. How can I manage the spacing between text lines (especially when you hit Return) in the posts paragraphs?

Thanx a lot !

Hi, I have a few problems using the Portfolio : I followed your description in the pdf, I used the Link tab to add my portfolio to the menu. It went fine. However :

1. When clicking on an image in the portfolio, it opens in its full size under the footer, not on a floating window like it does in your Demo (I’ve put an image in the Media field when posting, and the same as a featured image). It happens in every browser

2. The images in the portfolio are desaturated, and get back their colors when the mouse cursor gets over. Nice effect, but I’d prefer it sober, how can I get rid of this effect? (By the way, this effect works on Safari, but not on Firefox.)

3. Where can I change the font of the names of the portfolio posts (for example in your Demo: “Hairy model”, “Grunge Flag” etc…). All my fonts in the Theme Options are set on one font, which is not this one.

4. Speaking of these names (in point 2. right above ^ ) how can i link them to any other URL I want ?

5. How can I get rid of the text “PORTFOLIO” between the main menu and the portfolio itself? (by the way you misspelled it as PORFOLIO :-)

One more general question :

6. Using the main menu, I would like that the Home button stays normal (not lighten in pink) when I’m on the Home page.

Thanx a lot ! And sorry for asking so much ! :-)



1. Did you made any changes on the theme files? Also have you tried disabling other 3rd party plugins (except for the ones bundled with Penoolis)?

2. Open /penoolis/style.css then find and remove these lines:

#portfolio-archives li .thumb img {
    -moz-filter: grayscale(80%);
    -webkit-filter: grayscale(80%);
    filter: grayscale(80%);
    -webkit-transition: .2s all ease-in; -o-transition: .2s all ease-in;
    -moz-transition: .2s all ease-in; transition: .2s all ease-in;
    transition: .2s all ease-in; transition: .2s all ease-in;

3. Sorry, we seems to missed adding option to set the typography for the overall body text. We’ll fix this in the next release.

4. You can’t. However you can provide a project url that will be displayed in the portfolio detail page just like in our demo site http://demo.themewarrior.com/penoolis/portfolio/hairy-model/

5. Bummer, sorry for the spelling. You can change it from /penoolis/archive-warrior_portfolio.php

6. You can change it from Theme Options > Colors > Menu Link Hover Background Color

Hi again,

1. About the portfolio images pop-up : I am using a child theme. I made a lot of tests, it appears that when I use the original Penoolis theme, the portfolio images pop-up fine, like in your demo. But as soon as I use a child theme, even with no other css lines than ”@import url(”../penoolis/style.css”);” it doesn’t work, and the image opens under the footer. I tried disabling all 3rd part plugins, remove every custom css etc… with no success. Any idea? as I really would prefer using a child theme.

5. About the word “Portfolio” written between the menu and the portfolio itself: I found out how to change the word, no problem, thanx. Now is it possible to reduce the space above and under the word, like “margin top” “margin bottom” sort of settings ?

6. About the menu Link hover: I guess I’ve not been clear enough : what I would like is that the Link Hover color displays when the cursor is over, but then returns to normal (= transparent, or inactive-like if I may say) once you’ve clicked. By default it keeps its Link Hover color when the page is active.

One more thing:

7. How can I change the Copyright text in the footer?

Thanx a lot one more time !

I’ve been searching how I can translate for example “Posted by” or “Read more”, I’ve tried adjusting the language file but that doesn’t change anything.

What do I need to do to make these adjustments?

Thank you

Why do not I get a theme option? http://i.imgur.com/Qcs7b1p.png


Seems like there was an error in your backend. Did you installed anything before this error occurred?
