Hi Ccloegate! Hmmm – not with the basic builder that’s included in the theme, but let me do a little work with the new theme version that we’re working on this week and see if I can’t build in that sort of flexibility :)

WP 3.6.2 seems to have broken parts of shapeshifter 2! all of the user readable pages appear normally but the admin pages all have this error message….


also it seems i cannot post images using using a gallery.

Grab the latest update :) It patches the theme for the latest WP and OT versions.


Great theme! One problem though, the buttons for uploading in theme options ‘add new’ and ‘add media’ don’t work. For the images not a problem, I can put in the URL below, but not for the slider images. Help? Already tried in different browsers.



Try installing the updated OptionTree plugin from your Plugins > Add New panel – I’m batching the new version in with the next theme update this week just to be safe. If that’s not it, try removing any third party plugins that might be running buggy scripts that’d cause this on the backend :)

I would like to purchase this theme – will there be an update for WP 3.6?


Hi Pamela! The theme demo is stable on 3.6 – I’ll update the product description :)

Hello MDNW.

You have done a masterful job on your themes, however your statement “Sold As Is”, forgive me for saying so, has overtures of arrogance and is totally unprofessional from an author of your stature.

Rethink your position, revise your statement and policy as they are fatal overtures and evidence of red flags; caveat emptor! Buyer beware!

Personally, with such a policy, I will never purchase from you again. Prospective customers need to boycott all of your themes; pass them by. Seek out better authors.

Such a position from an outstanding author is unacceptable.




Hi Doc!

Your opinions are duly noted. We have details on the new policy here: http://makedesign.ticksy.com/faq/1334 and here: http://makedesign.ticksy.com/faq/268 – What it comes down to is that we’ll be supporting themes for 6 months and then freezing support. This is simply out of necessity and practicality for me, not as an offense to buyers. I do sincerely regret moving towards this policy (I wish I had ten arms and 48 hours in each day), but as this ultimately ensures that we’ll be able to release new, high quality products rather than focusing on updating old themes ad-infinitum, it’s the way we’ve gotta go.

Most Respectfully, Brandon

Hi there, I have purchased this them, but I have the version. How can I get the updated version. I need it becuase i am gettin this error in my wp admin page.

Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, function ‘ot_register_theme_options_page’ not found or invalid function name in /home/delig529/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 406

I am not able to make any changes in the back end because of this.

I need your support

Thank you


Hi there! Try installing the latest OptionTree plugin from your Plugins > Add New panel – that should do the trick :)

Ignore the comment by bhogalr. I forgot I have two accounts. I have purchased the them on this account and able to download the latest version. thank you.

we loved the theme. We want to scroll the single scrolling page such a way that when we scroll with mouse wheel, it should jump to next page. Currently it is scrolling smoothly. Please advise as to how this can be done.


Can you tell me how to make the side scroll with page content. I don’t want it static on the left side. Because i have a lot of categories that i want to show but it will not shown because of the static sidebar. Please help me.

I’ve used this theme for one of my old sites and when I did I ended up installing another “contact form” plugin…But I’m using this theme for another site of mine and was curious how do you get the contact form as shown on “Live Preview” of this theme.

so thanks for answer regards Francesco

Hi there- you’re theme looks great. Wondering if you can share the documentation before I purchase. I’ve been burned a few times – I need to make sure I can customize it they way I need to before I spend money on another theme. :)

Thanks so much! jenmarek at yahoo

Hi, pardon form my terrible english, how can update the theme shapeshifter2? The last year I have buy shapeshifter 1, and in replacement (for one bug) you gave me kindly shapeshifter 2. Now I can not find the update of August …. TKS David


When I upgraded from 3.7.1 to 3.8, the photos no longer trigger a lightbox when clicked, they load the pic within the same browser. Also, the admin panel looked wonky after the upgrade as well. I’m not concerned about the admin panel but definitely need to get the photos section popup lightbox working. Thanks in advance!


Checking it out right now :)
