Looking for a great Page Builder based WP theme and LUV this One of yours! One thing, as mobile view huge deal for me, annnyyy chance to have a Smooth Drop down menu and not the PopOut bar style?? Didn’t know if possible to have alternate version (maybe css could do, or no?) Thnks for letting me know either way and Grt Work!

on mobile view/iphone here (most themes still use this but many are now doing Smooth dropdown responsive which just compliments the Flow of great themes like yours) ex: http://tradewindsinteriors.com http://kirkbridedesigns.com and LUV your work, just being more of a graphic artist, I gotta have the awesome visual and functional fluidity of this kind of mobile menu over the ‘PopOut bar’ style you and many themes still use… keep me posted if possible or in your future themes!! THNKS

Hi sterlingwilliam,

Ah got it, well I’ll consider it for next update (but not in the update that will be released in a few days).

Thanks for your advice! ;)


Awesome, plz let me know when that is released if you could THNKS

Where do I edit the button text “View Project”? I can’t find it..

Hi enur25,

That located on robust/includes/content-portfolio.php (line 6) and robust/functions/shortcodes/portfolio.php (line 120).



I really love this theme. It’s my favorite so far but I’m having few problems: I can add sidebars only with the first version. After uploading the files to version 1.0.1 I add sidebars but they won’t show on the widgets page.

Also, the blog page is not right.. the first page loads too many entries. On page builder, when you enter the “Entries” block you cannot pull entries from all categories. If you do not select a category it will just show 10 posts.. so if you can find the time to address these issues please let me know what am I doing wrong.

(I disabled all plugins and tried to install a fresh copy of WP before writing here so I’m pretty sure there are some mini bugs that cause it).

Hi Ollieslock,

Glad you love it! Yeah i know it’s a bug since version 1.0.1 you can read my answer here to resolve that issue, http://themeforest.net/item/robust-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/discussion/4176764?page=6#comment_3600778.

To pull all categories on the page builder’s “entries” module just skip the category selector option, leave it not selected to any category. To make the post shows more that 10 change the max posts display on reading settings.


Hi Rifki,

I tried it but it shows all posts. Even after I select number of posts “2,3 or 4” it shows all posts.

Also, It’s loading some extra jscripts, I think. It won’t work with Gravity forms. I have to reset to default theme to create forms and only then switch back to this amazing theme!

So.. If you can address this in the next update, Highly appreciated!

Im having problems as well with my portfolio not being found.

Page not Found! Error 404! Sorry, but we couldn’t find the page you were looking for.

I’ve tried doing steps 1 and 2 below but it still is not working :(

1. Change your portfolio page slug for example : “work” or “projects” 2. Change the portfolio items slug through Fresh Panel -> Portfolio -> Overview, default is “portfolio”

Hi Jamie_humbug99,

Please always re-save your permalinks setting after changing the portfolio slug.


On our blog http://innovospain.es/blog/ when you install the template, it appears that over each entrance have outstanding pictures, it can be changed?

Hi gibokun,

Yes sure, that’s a featured image, you can set your featured images on your every post at the bottom right on your post editor.


i deleted it form the php file, dont need the featured image on top of every post.


Trying to install you r theme, but having some trouble. Can you provide an easy solution?

Hi BeaPlant,

Thanks for purchasing ;)

Just ask your host to enable “file_put_contents()” & “file_get_contents()”


Rifki congrats, this is one of the greatest themes I ever worked with. I have question for fonts. I need to have google fonts that are latin extended and utf-8 compatible. I see that you use fonts.php in framework, but I don’t understand how to include something like this in fonts.php: <link href=’http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro&subset=latin,latin-ext' rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’>

Thank you

Hi vzrandom,

Thanks a lot and glad you love it! ;)

As you can see on the line 62:
if ($font == 'Arimo') $font = 'Arimo:400,700';

Just put your preferred character set at the end of the code above, example:

if ($font == 'Arimo') $font = 'Arimo:400,700&subset=latin,latin-ext';

Good luck,


Perfect! Thank you

Hi Rifki, where can I change the css of the buttons on Reveloution Slider?

Hi Mike,

There is “Edit CSS file” in the layer params box on your edit slides page, or simply put <a href="#" class="button">Button</a> on the layer text/html field to create a button as seen in the demo page.


Hello—I am working with the Robust Portfolios. How do I remove the the Page Title from Portfolio Items?

Also. How do I set the size of portfolio images? The slideshow view makes them rather large and grainy. Thank you.

For example, how did you change the size of images at http://wp.rifki.net/themes/robust/portfolio/photoboot/ ?

Hi wfischer75,

'960x480' : 'fullwidth';

980×480 image size for portfolio with full width layout.

fullwidth image size for portfolio with left/right content layout.

So if you want to change the size on full width mode just replace 980×480 with WIDTHxHEIGHT , it can be any size depend on your needs.


That worked. Thanks again Rifki

Hello—also, how do I change the wording of “View Project” when I hover over a portfolio featured image? Thank you!

Hi wfischer75,

That located on robust/includes/content-portfolio.php (line 6) and robust/functions/shortcodes/portfolio.php (line 120).


Rifki—I am very happy with the theme, and the support your are providing. Thank you very very much.

Hi wfischer75,

Glad you happy with it and glad I can help. Don’t forget to rate ;)


Where do you change the color of the call to actions buttons, (like purchase now, read more) right now they are green but I want to change them to red. I can’t locate the spot in the code where to change the color. thanks

Hi LisaMarie920,

There’s an options to choose the button color either on shortcode generator or page builder module’s settings.

Thanks for purchasing ;)


i discovered where to change it in the style sheets. Where can I change the color of the contact form pop up that is on the bottom right side of each page… I believe by default it says Contact us and it defaults to red or green. Thanks

Hi LisaMarie920,

Go to Chat Console -> Options.

Hi There

How can i make the logo larger??

Great. Made the change, do i need to update the CSS?

Hi catdi,

No you don’t need to update the CSS, if you want to add your custom style better use the Custom CSS code in the theme options instead of put directly on the theme style sheets file.


Ok but the format is now off a little. Its pushed down the menu items. How can change it so its all inline?

Hi, we are having problems changing styles in the ‘Fresh’ panel in the admin. The changes seem to save ok in the admin panel but don’t make any changes to the website.

Well not exactly.. we’ve changed a property and restart the server, the functionality begins to work. That’s ok, but we’ve deactivated again and restart the server… now it’s still working. Any suggestions, as it seems a bit odd

Hi doitmobile,

The system will generated custom-style.css file from the theme options settings using php “file_put_contents” function and only re-write the data if the file already exist.

When you have “file_put_contents” activated it will put your settings to the custom-style.css and the data will stay there even the “file_put_contents” has been disabled but it will not able to put your new settings if the “file_put_contents” disabled. So better to make the “file_put_contents” enabled.


Thanks, To activate “file_put_contents” we have set the “allow_url_fopen” and “allow_url_include” to “on” in the php.ini. Is that what you mean?

Hi rifki! i used Po edit to translate the theme, all went fine, but not i cant access any portofolio , and when i try to create a new one, it’s like a normal post, no robust options abur portofolios on “new portofolio”

Hi gibokun,

Don’t translate “portfolio” string.


I’d also like to know how to expand the width of the text column in portofolios and make the image a little smaller

Translate complete! there was to string called portofolio. :D About my last aks, i mean in the one colum portfolio.how to expand the width of the red scuare in this picture: http://innovospain.es/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/columw.png

Rifki—Hello. For Robust, how can I change the background color for Testimonials? Thank you.

Hi wfischer75,

Put code below to the Custom CSS field on Theme Options page:

.fancy-quote .quote-text{
    background: #color;


Thanks Rifki

You’re welcome ;)

What is the mechanism to display projects in a certain order for a portfolio? Thanks.

Hi jbwa513,

It’s uses a custom taxonomy something like category/tag.


I notice on this thread of your theme a number of people have had issues saving their logo within the theme. Has this been their problem or is there an issue with the theme saving the logo and if so, has this been resolved?

Also, Malickmerchant commented about H1 tags - “I have noticed something very important related to On Page SEO in the theme.

On the Single Post page the Category Title (in hgroup div, page-title.php) is in H1 and the same time the Blog Post Title is also H1, which shouldn’t be.

There should be only 1 H1 Tag on any page, which is good SEO practice.

Please change the Category Title to H2, and Post Title to H1.

Note: It works ok on the Archive Sections & Static Pages, don’t change it.”

Has this been resolved? This is a very important seo structure and need confirmation.

are there many changes due? is it worth the wait as I want to start on a clients project within the next few days?

now purchased so looking forward to using this theme.

Hi Steve,

Wow thanks for purchasing I truly appreciate that ;)


Hi Rifki

Great looking theme and nice to see you active on the support front.

Question for you, is it possible (via the page builder or the shortcode) to add portfolio items from one or more categories to a page?

e.g. last three portfolio items from the advertising category


Hi dalewright,

Thanks ;)

Unfortunately that ability is’t not supported in current version, noted to my update list, thanks.


Thanks for the quick response.

I dont suppose you are able to say roughly when such a feature might be added? e.g. days, weeks, months

I am about to start a project and this is a key feature of my design.

This is by far the best Wordpress theme I have ever used (and I used a few hundred). I love the clean code, I love the clean look, it’s great, thank you.

Hi mititeluandrei,

Thank you so much for your kind words and glad you love it. ;)

Cheers ;)
