Another nice Theme :)

This is an amazing theme because it is EXACTLY what I was looking all over for. You have done an amazing job and I just can’t wait to buy and test out this theme!

thanks for the kind words! Appreciated! :)

Really cool design. I like it

Thanks! :)

Just bought this for my video blogging project – looks ideal! Popping it on now at www.nakedblogging.com/bschoolblog


Thanks :) We hope you enjoy it!. let us know if you need any help!

Great theme! Love it!

But no services and team page. Kinda sad.

But really nice theme.

Good luck.

Hi there, thanks for the kind words :) well, this is a blogging theme actually, but you can create eye-candy pages with full color backgrounds blending with opacity images.

The way this theme looks in my mobile is like a masterpiece. purchased 10 minutes ago, and I already have it running. Thank you :):):) You have my humble 5 stars.

Thank you for the awesome feedback, and let us know if you need any help! Cheers!

Hello, i would like to buy your theme but i have a question about SEO, is it optimized ? i don’t know why page have H2 title tag and not H1 like post title !? thank you for your answer

Just shoot us an email at support[at]codestag.com and we will take care of it :)

Really nice design. Few questions for you:

1. How does the post background image work? (admin screenshot would help)

2. I’m thinking of using this theme for online magazine. Is is possible to make some posts as ‘featured’ items which shows in a slightly different format?

3. Would it be possible to add google ad banners on the homepage (top, sidebar, etc)?

4. Where’s the list of shortcodes in the demo? I couldn’t find them except in the screenshots.

5. Is it possible to make the top menu float as you scroll down the page?

6. There’s no sharing option for any posts (facebook, twitter, etc). This is a very important feature which is missing.

Please let me know if these items can be done. Please private message if there’s additional charge for these changes.


Hello, thanks for the interest. Here are the answers:

1. You can set background image and opacity using custom metaboxes in admin, see an example:: http://cl.ly/image/2V471o2G1u2j

2. We haven’t provided any option for featured item. However you can make use of WordPress sticky posts and give it a bit of styling under Theme Options > Custom CSS.

3. There isn’t any widget, but you can easily install any third party plugins for that.

4. As of now, we haven’t got any page demonstration all shortcodes, for reference here is what all included with it: Alerts, Author Box, Buttons, Columns, Divider, Intro, Styled Code, Tabs and Toggle.

5. Sure, some lines of CSS would do that.

6. There are no social button included with the theme but again, any third party would easily integrate that for you.

If you need some customisation done, we offer customisations on our items too. After purchasing the theme, you can fill this form:: http://codest.ag/12KoMIH, and we will get back to you with a quote.

Let us know if you have further questions. Thanks :)

Beautiful theme sir :) Love it! Good luck!

Very nice theme… Already up and running!

I just got one question or request… is it possible to add a soundcloud player instead of the mp3 player?

When I just use the soundcloud tags, it doesn’t shows up on the frontpage… the visiter has to open the post to see the player :(

Hello, thanks for purchasing Shift.

Reason why it doesn’t shows up on homepage is that on homepage we just show the excerpt, no HTML tags are allowed there. If you have some coding skills, you can quickly create a custom meta box and set the conditionals under content-audio.php and you will be up and running in few minutes.

— If you have any question or facing any issues, you can open a ticket anytime at our Support Forum. Thanks.

Very nice concept :)

Thanks! :)

Stunning theme! ;)

Thanks! we really enjoyed building it :)

What’s the font you used in the SHIFT logo on the demo? It’s rad. Thank you.

Hi there and thanks for the purchase! The font is Neutra Display. I can suggest an also cool alternative: Novecento Bold (which is freeware). Thanks and let us know if you need any help with your theme! Enjoy :)

Very nice color pallet

Great Theme !! How can i integrate ads in this theme. Preferred locations of ads and suggestions please.

Hello there,

There are two widget areas under theme, one at the top and another at bottom. You can simply use text widget to put your ad code in these areas.

If you want to display ads between posts, you can use any third party plugin such as Ad Injection to inject ads between posts.

Let us know if you have further questions. Thanks :)

Awesome Theme! I Need some things, if is possible (update).

  • lastFM Icon
  • app.net (ADN) Icon
  • Archive Template
  • Sitemap Template

Hello, We would surely consider adding these features in future version of Shift. Thanks :)

Cool! Thank you!

Really cool theme! Purchased it minutes ago! :)

I have one question: Is it possible to set the background only on the “single” post page and not at the homepage? I don’t like so much different backgrounds at one time….

Hello, thanks for purchasing Shift.

Unfortunately it isn’t possible without customisation. Let us know if you have further questions :)

Got it. Just removed <?php get_template_part(‘content’, ‘background’); ?> at the index.php.

Glad that you made it :)

If you ever need any help, feel free to open a ticket on our support forum. Thanks.

Love this theme, will purchase it but I would like to know if is it possible and how to have 1 (featured ) post always on top in the homepage. ( not the latest post like in the demo )

thank you

Hello there,

It’s possible to have a post on top using WordPress’s Sticky Post feature.

Let us know if you have further questions. All the best :)
