HI themedutch, thats what i thought but i do not have such an option at the bottom of any of my pages?


Hi zzalienzz,

This option is on every page. Go to your admin: Choose any page ‘Edit page’ and scroll down until you see ‘Discussions / allow comments’ Good luck! Helen

Hi Karina111,

There have been updates for Wordpress and our theme Screen as well. I suggest you do update both. If you are afraid to do both updates yourself, you might considering hiring us. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to sales@theme-dutch.com in order to receive more info.

Thank you, Helen

Evening Themedutch;

The theme seems to have broke in IE, neither the nav or the video on the homepage was appearing. I updated WP and the theme and I think I have everything working. But no matter what I do the video no longer loads in IE. Any ideas?

Hi Theme Dutch,

Quick question, The submenu items when not selected are a bit transparent. when the menu drops down i would like all sub menu items to just be white, no roll over etc. I have a good knowledge of php, css, java etc. Can you please just tell me which file I have to edit to make this happen.


UPDATE Thanks I figured it out, it was the functions.js file


Hi MakaveliAlive,

Thanks for notifying us ;-) Good luck with the theme!

Hi! How do you put a slide show back ground of images? and how big do the images have to be?

ALSO !! how do you get the images to get bigger and smaller as u expand the page ?

Thank YOU !!!!


Hello Feixcepeda,

The appropriate dimension for background images is 1280×1024 pixels. How to create a slide show background you can read in the themes manual, which you can find in your download zip.

Thank you, Theme Dutch

I am very happy with this template so far. One little thing i can’t get straight. I want to put an image in every blog (list of blogs). This is what i am talking about.


How do i do that? There is no documentation about it. Thanks.


Hi ppcuban,

The link re-directs to the preview homepage, so I don’t know exactly what you want to show. But if you want to have different blogs, you can assign categories to them and add a featured image via the right side below at your postpages. If this is not what you mean, please go to our website for support: http://theme-dutch.com/wordpress-support/. Good luck with the theme,


ppcuban Purchased

Ok, maybe i didn’t know how to explain myself the first time.

1. Go to your Screen example website. 2. Click on the Menu-> Blog [Our Story]

There is a list of articles. Some of the titles are… - Video on homepage - Blog posts on home - 38 fonts…. etc., etc., etc.

As you can see there is an image per article. How do i set that image. In your example is the same image for all of them. Is it because you use the same one for each article individually or you can only use one image for that list of articles?



Hi ppcuban,

You can setup different images for each seperate post. (featured images). Its a Wordpress function. Set a featured image at the right side of every post page. For support, please register and visit our Screen forum via: http://theme-dutch.com/wordpress-support/.

Thanks a lot in advance, Theme Dutch

I know that “featured image” is an option i have in other templates, but i don’t see it nowhere in your template. All i see is Categories and Tags. No Featured Image at all.


Hi ppcuban,

I’ve checked the backend of the theme. You’re right, and i am sorry. The blogposts include no featured image, but we pasted an image above the content in the contentblock of every post . We have set the image width to 575 and the hight to 250 px. Best wishes, Helen

I am customizing the theme now. I need to change the color of the bar that appears in the header of each page. It defaults to blue. I can’t seem to find the line in the CSS to change it. Can you let me know where to update that?

Hello, I am trying to use Screen with a plugin im writing that uses Custom Post Types but it does not seem to work. When I visit the custom post type, its design is very basic and no even the content is there. Can someone please let me know how to make it work?

Thanks in advance.


Hi Davesfx,

We support our themes via the forums on http://theme-dutch.com/wordpress-support/. However we’re not obligated to support plugins that did not come with the theme. Most likely we have to calculate costs for this one.

Thanks, Theme Dutch

is this theme mobile friendly? I have used it , and the customer wants now (one and a half year late) to have a mobile friendly version.

Is easy to do customazations for this or it will be better to use a Wp plugin for this purpose?

Best regards

  • customizations – sorry for my english.

Hi Nik, no worries about the spelling, we have issues with that ourselves ;-)

The Screen theme needs an update, because its not wp 3.4 yet. It runs on mobile devices and iPad. If you run into issues please post this in our Screen forum via http://theme-dutch.com/wordpress-support/. As soon as we update the theme our developpers can have a look at possible remarks as well.

Best wishes, Theme Dutch
