Is there a way to allow users to switch from mobile to desktop view on the theme? If they are using a mobile device but want to view it as it would be displayed on a desktop.


I think there’s no such a way because it requires a work on responsiveness carefully.

Howerver, do you think the percentage of these users is small?

Hello! Thanks for all the support so far :) I have 2 issues happening on my website that I don’t really know how to fix.

1. On every page the title or the slider gets cut by the menu, you only see it when you scroll down…why is this? see example here: http://www.laong.org/involucrate/

2. On the ipad the menu doesn’t look good (when I see the website on portrait – on landscape is ok)...they are on top of everything else, and it’s open instantly…the only way that I found that it works is if I put the option of a left aligned header, which I don’t want…

Thanks a lot! Daniela.


The center header layout is issue and I’ll fix it very quickly.

I think you’ll solve your problem in the next update version. Sorry for this incovenience.

Hey! :) I just got an email with an update for the theme. Can you please tell me how to install the update? in the wordpress dashboard I don’t get the option to automatically update the theme…so I guess I have to install it from scratch? Thanks for your help! :) Daniela.

Hi Blend Studio

Hi, great theme! Before purchasing my customer has a few questions please: 1. is it possible to delete the top (black) bar? 2. is it possible to center the logo and center the Menu below the logo? 3. is it possible to build in subscription fot newsletter? 4. is it possible to change the white (background)color of the menu into an other color?

Thank you and kind regards!

Hi eyemarc. Yes is the answer for all of your questions :)

Hi; just opened in my home. All other pages seems to be a blank page. Admin panel is working, but the sheets were not working. It did a little research says that the forum is a problem in the template. Waiting for your help.

Hi @agapiyay, could you please show me your site & send me your admin login credentials? :) Thank you

May your site is concerning this issue


Hello, I have a problem where my mobile menu is white on a white background and thus becomes invisible when on a mobile phone. I am using the dark submenu theme and would like to continue using it.

Thank you,

I followed those steps and updated the website to v1.3 but still see the mobile error. How can I fix this?

nvm, guess I just had to wait to let it propagate

Hi Eric

I don’t see any issue on the mobile site:

Sonata mobile menu

Could you please double check it?


We just purchased this theme and have been trying repeatedly to install the demo content and it will not install. It just keeps bumping the site to an error page:


This is a time sensitive project and we really need the demo installed asap. Can you please help sort the issue as soon as possible?

Thank you.


I submitted through your contact form about 7 hours ago with login info. I will submit again.


Finally got this demo content to upload this morning. Tried uploading it to a different user that the main user, and then transferred all content back to main user. No clue why that would trigger it, but at least it’s uploaded now.

Thank you

Sounds great! :) Congrats my friend. Let me know if you need more support while using my item.

Best, Cuong Tran


We have recently purchased this theme – love it by the way :) We would like to use the animated image code: [animated effect="right" image="Image URL"][/animated]

however we would like to link these images to a URL. I tried adding link=”” to the shortcode and it doesn’t. Then I tried simply wrapping a basic html link around the shortcode, and it creates a huge margin/whitespace below the image in some browsers.

Is there another way to link these animated images?

Thank you so much!

Hi. Thanks for purchasing my item & loving it

Let see the image you’ll understand how to accomplish your request.

Animated Shortcode

The magic here is, do not use image attribute, just insert an image with link inside the content. ;)

Hi. Is Sonata good for rtl language? And how to switch to Maintenance mode? Thanks a lot.

Hi friend, Sonata doesn’t support RTL officially. Currently it works well for LTR only, I’ve never tried to turn it into a RTL site because I have no exp about this.

Normally, Maintenance mode offen being triggered by a plugin. With “maintenance mode plugin” keyword, you’ll find many usefull ones.

Good luck to you, Cuong Tran :)
