..or (even better) make the body the same width as the header?

mmm… I can’t figure out the correct url of your site, can you please write it again? is it a .co.uk or a .com domain? And what is the full url? Thanks!

Ok, replied to your email.

Thanks for your swift reply Codestag – much appreciated.


Great work and I’m interested in purchasing your theme. I read that you don’t offer social icons for posts/pages. Can you suggest a way to include the same icons that you’re using with your shortcode “social url”? Since the background for each post/page can be different, I would like to use the opacity to maintain the same look and feel of the theme.

Thanks, Ronald H.

Hello, I think there’s been a confusion between social icons and social sharing buttons. Icons those comes with theme as shortcodes are simple linked to social network profiles not sharing buttons.

If you want to use sharing button, you’ll have to use any plugin for that. My choice of plugin would be Jetpack.

Let us know if you need further assistance. Thanks :)

OK, I’ll try my best…if not, I’ll create a ticket. Thanks for your time.

Thanks for your interest in Shift. Feel free to ask for any further info.

This is one of the coolest and more distinctive themes I have ever seen. Bookmarked for a next purchase! very well played.

Thanks mate :) Appreciated.

awesome theme… just bought it… quick question about the contact form… is there a way to add more fields to the contact form?

Hi there, and thanks for the purchase.

currently this is not possible without customizing the page template. It should be difficult for someone who has coding skills.

Let us know if you need any further help :) Thanks!

is that gonna be available in a future update maybe? may i suggest implementing the contact form 7 plugin.

We are not very big fans of implementing 3rd party plugins, but you can always give it a shot using the Contact Form plugin to create a contact form that covers your needs. You can put this form in any page.

Let us know if you need any further help. You can always create a ticket at our support forum http://support.codestag.com where we can monitor and handle support requests more effectively there.

Thanks :)

Is there an option to disable the custom excerpt? I’d rather it not strip everything…

Is there any way to use Wordpress <!-more->


Thanks for purchasing one of our files, we truly appreciate it!

Support for all our themes is conducted through our support forum forums, please start a new thread over there and we will help you as soon as possible.

Thanks :)

Great theme, i like it very much.

Do you gonna add YouTube for the social networks in the future? Also i would like to have an rss icon. Also i would appreciate an URL field for the comments.

Thanks Andreas

Hmmm, can’t finde, where to add the rss feed address.

Hello, It actually retrieves the default feed address of WordPress. You’ll have to manually edit the code if you want to change the address to something different. Code is located under functions.php on line 529.

Thx, found it. :-)

Hello! Is it possible to have soundcloud player instead of the mp3 player? Thanks in advance.

Sorry about that. We can help you with that.

You can open a thread on our support forum once you purchase the theme. All the best.

i will do it in a few hours. Thanks!

Just open a ticket! Thanks

Purchased yesterday and so far I am impressed. Thank you for an awesome theme. 5 stars!

Thanks! We appreciate the kind words!

Hi there,

I have not bought this theme yet, but is there anyway that I can play around with the admin panel in Wordpress, or at least see a full screenshot of the options?




I’ll shortly send you the username and password to demo site. So you can take a look at options.

All the best :)

WOW. This theme is just so visually appealing. I’ve totally fallen in love with it the more I play with it. Can you also send me a demo URL to login and play around in the backend? I’d like to see the admin side.

Thanks! And fantastic work.

Hi, the theme looks great! A few questions before purchase:

1) Any possibility of having the first post on the home page being displayed as a full post and the following ones as excerpts? Or better yet, having the ability to display a full page first and post excerpts after? In a way it would be the equivalent of having a widget area at the top of the page on the home page.

2) Can we define different background colors by post categories?

Thanks !


1. It’s only possible by adding a custom query for homepage.

2. You can only define background color by post formats.

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

Hi, I tried echo ‘’.the_post_thumbnail(‘full’).’’; to allow the featured image to link to the post but it’s not working.

Also, I’ve played around with a couple of social share button plug ins but is there a away to have the buttons appear with the featured image/post preview in the tumblog section rather than having them only appear when the post is clicked through to? Cheers! great theme by the way.

echo '<a href="'.get_the_ID().'">'.the_post_thumbnail('full').'</a>'; 

that’s what i’d tried sorry. If I use what you sent me the whole site fails. Cheers

My apologies for that. Here’s the code that won’t disappoint you ;)

echo '<a href="'.get_permalink(get_the_ID()).'">'.get_the_post_thumbnail(get_the_ID(), 'full').'</a>';

Awesome! Worked a treat, thanks for that.

Hi there I have a question about this great template. Is there any way to have a sortable blog? Let me explain further. Let’s say I want to see all blog posts and then only see the audio posts, or video posts. Is this possible? thanks

sorry about this extra comment, like having a page where I can see all the post tagged by “audio”. That’s what I meant with my question about.

Hi there, sure, it is something like this: http://demo.codestag.com/shift/type/chat/

actually, at the demo, if you click on the post format icon of each post (at the meta boxes of the left side) you get to such a page.

let us know if you have any further questions.


i bought this programme, how do i start to work with it??

Hi there. There is a documentation file in the downloaded theme folder that will help you with setting up.

If you need further help please visit our support forum at http://support.codestag.com


Thanks :)


before I purchase the theme. Can I change the color of the background per post or it still limited by category? Cause I need different colors per post not per category. I may use one or two categories and site will look ugly without different colors.

Hello there,

As of now colors can be changed per post format. But in next release, we are introducing new feature to change colors per post.

You may want to follow us on twitter to be notified when we update the item. It’s schedules to be updated tomorrow.

Thanks :)

Hi again, FYI, the update has just been released! Now you can change color scheme for every single post and page. Thanks :)

Excellent, I will buy it soon! Thanks


Just a heads up that the v1.1 update has just been released with some cool features:

  • Now you can customize color scheme for every single post, not only for post formats
  • Soundcloud player embed support (requires soundcloud plugin)
  • New Background Pattern Support for posts and pages
  • New Prev/Next Pagination Options

  • If you have already purchased the theme, you can update to the latest version. View Changelog

    Thanks! :)


    First – great theme. It really is one of a kind.

    Second, is there any way to change the menu color at the top (the block) and the +? I’ve been trying in the header.php file and the theme but can’t seem to do it. Thank you

    definitely possible by adding some simple css under the custom css field at the theme options.

    Please open a ticket at http://support.codestag.com and we’ll guide you.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks too :)

    The color per post was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for that. :)

    Thank you :)
