Hi lovely theme, I am having menu issues. The main menu does not display the items in the created menu. Any thoughts, am I missing some custom setting somewhere?

Sorry please disregard, I had custom menu enabled. Idiot me! Cheers.


Ok, let me know when something goes wrong ;)

Edit, se below

I’m digging the theme but I have a few questions before I buy.

1. do you have screen shots of the admin interface so I can see exactly what features this theme has/supports?

2. Is there a height limitation on the logo in the header?

3. When opening a portfolio image the normal behavior is to fill the width of the screen just below the header. Are the images auto sized based on their aspect ratio or will some part of the image get cut off?

4. Is it possible to have the same menu bar links like on the desktop appear the same way on mobile instead of the drop down?

Thanks, very awesome theme!



1. Here are some ;)image 1, image 2, image 3, image 4, image 5

2. No there isn’t.

3. Yes, the images are auto sized based on their aspect ratio.

4. Currently there’s no option in theme options to enable this, but I would need to delete just few lines in code, I would be glad to help you with that.

And thanks ;), should you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Thanks for the quick reply! Just one more question.

1. Is it possible to hide the map on the contacts page?


Yes, if you don’t enter any link to google maps in theme options, the map will not show.

Thanks for your help!

I would like to know which lines of code to delete to make the mobile drop down menu appear like it does on the desktop with separate links. Thanks!


Hi could you please send me an e-mail ? I will send you edited files + tutorial on how to do it on your own, I dont want to spam in the comments.

1 When I set the home page layout to “Home Page” option and I try to see that page on my live site it gives an error that it could not be found. What am I doing wrong?

2 How do I have different portfolios on two different pages and have them using the same portfolio alt format? Right now both both pages are set to Port Alt and they both get the same content which are two separate portfolios.

3 If I set the portfolio as the home page I can’t see the thumbnails but I can see them on their pages.


This can be a little bit longer to explain so I’ve sent you an e-mail with edited files and tutorial on how to do that (if you want to do it on your own).

Let me know if that worked ;)

Brilliant! It works perfectly. Thanks again!


Iam glad it worked, let me know if something goes wrong ;)

I would like to know how to add a custom icon instead of the “Link:” text on the format-bloglink.php page. I can add the image, but it places the image in its own line above the link itself. I would like for them to be on the same line.

I have looked through the CSS , etc. and can’t seem to find a way to make this work properly.

I would appreciate your assistance.

best -




I assume that you already know where to find the “link:” which you want to edit. (just in case it’s format-bloglink.php line 5.)

If you want to use some of the build in webicons you can just replace the “link” with this:

<span class="webicons">K</span>

However I assume that you want your own image so html will look like this, make sure that you give it some special class on which we will refer to in css:

<img src="http://blog.appboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Google.png" alt="Featured Link" class="featured_link_image" />

/* Whole syntax */
<a href="<?php echo $first_link; ?>" title="Featured link in <?php the_title(); ?> post"><img src="http://blog.appboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Google.png" alt="Featured Link" class="featured_link_image" /> <?php the_title(); ?></a>

Then go to your css and add these lines:

    display: inline-block;
    height: 60px; /* you can set your own height */
    width: auto;
    vertical-align: middle; 
    /* margin: 0 5px 0 0; Optional margin to the sides */

And it should work ;)

Fantastic! Thank you so much for your prompt response and detailed help. It is truly appreciated. I’m very pleased w/ the theme.


No problem, I am glad I could help ;)

I am thinking of purchasing this theme for my photography blog but I have a question. All my images on my blog are sized at 960 px for my current and I see that it’s set at 680. Will my images automatically resize themselves or will I have to go in and resize all my blog posts. Thanks again in advance!



yes it can be easily done using css3 media queries. Copy and paste this into your css and write there your own css for tablets and mobile separately.

/* Mobile */
@media (max-width: 640px) {
    ## mobile css

/* Tablet */
@media (min-width: 641px) {
    ## tablet css

Thanks so much for your excellent customer service. I have one more question for you. Is there a way to set a gallery slider on my home page? Thanks!



Thanks for that ;) I am glad I helped.

Do you mean something like featured gallery which persist on every blog page ?

Hi, thank you for an awesome theme!

I would like to now how to do if i want the “category page” show up with the picture. Now its only the text and the info about post date, author, comments ect.

I hope you understand!




I am sorry for late reply, I wasn’t near any computer last two days. I am now exacly sure what you mean, If you have set it up as featured image than it should work in all categories, However if you are using videos or link post formats, make sure to have your link in the content at first place. Sometimes when you enable Excerpt for categories throught theme options, it can hide the content that you need for displaying these post formats.

Let me know if that worked or if I understand your situation ;)

Hello, I´m having a error with “BLog alt” style.

The page 4 can´t be found.

Any suggestion?



Hi, do you have any live link so I could check it out what exactly is going on?

Also does it show all posts but from unknown reason it’s showing fake page 4? Or doesn’t it show all posts and rest should be on page 4 which is not available.

Thanks, and sorry about your trouble.

Here is the live link: www.pabloam.com

And also I can´t put 5 news on Blog Alt. :S

The page are real in other theme.



I am still trying to figure this out, I should have it fixed by tommorow (sorry about that)

Also you mean 5 news per page ? Try to change that in theme options in blog page settings, or if you have it as your home page, change it from settings -> reading.

Let me know if that worked.


After spending hours on trying to figure this out I finally found what’s causing the problem, however haven’t yet found fix for that. If you set the option Blog pages show at most in Settings->Reading in your wordpress admin page to 1, this problem will dissapear, however it may display only 3 posts per page. But there’s workaround for that. If you make a new page and set it as home page, through wordpress settings, and the page has Blog page Alt. layout which doesn’t cause any problems it will work and also you can control how many posts you want to show per page in theme options.

So until I fix the problem please avoid using Blog alt. template on homepage, or use workaround mentioned above, when you have these problems. I am sorry about that in advance, I will try to fix that on Saturday, when I get back from my holiday.

Ok, I can wait untill your next update. I would like to use Blog Alt. :)

By the way, I would like to suggest one thing about the “Standar” Template. Could be possible to put the tittle “inside” the picture? Instead of at bottom?

Thanks for your replies :)


If you mean something like this that shouldn’t be a problem, let me know and I can do it for you ;)

Hi, xRicrdx , question before buying , is this theme supports adsense, or admomb, also is this theme will work with buddy press ?

I like this item, but i will need the above futures, thanks



Unfortunatelly none of these features is supported in this theme, admomb and adsense shouldn’t be a problem but buddypress will cause problems.

Thank you for your interest.

This looks great, I’m looking forward to using it as our mobile theme. I purchased, and downloaded, however when I upload it I get this message: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Please help!


That’s strange, I’ve just send you e-mail with download link, also make sure that you have free space on your server or if you are uploading it through wordpress, there are sometimes errors with max upload size of the file.


Got your email, and this time it worked fine to upload. Thanks…


No problem, I am sorry about that.

The date of you’re updates doesn’t seem correct.


Sorry about that, I am still forgetting that Envato time is +10 hours of mine, so the dates are usually -1 day of the date that is has been updated.

I will try to fix that in the future updates

any possibility of getting a pinterest button with the twitter and facebook?


I will consider that, I am not yet familliar with pinterest API for sharing.

xRicrdx, I have Stacker uploaded to wordpress. My intention was to use it only as my mobile theme.

In your features listing you said “Optional plugin to control theme options, while your desktop theme is active” Which I read to mean that it was possible to use and adjust Stacker settings while keeping a different desktop theme.

In my first attempt I discovered a conflict with a plugin I was using -All Mobile Theme Switcher. No problem, I removed that plug in. However I would appreciate some guidance in setting up Stacker for mobile use, and keeping my desktop theme. Thanks!



I’ve just tried Any Mobile Theme Switcher and Device Theme Switcher (I recommend this one) on both my localhost and hosting with plugin activated and don’t have any conflits. Could you please specify what exactly is causing the problems?

Thanks in advance and sorry about your trouble.

hi. finally found this theme that i love. i’m definitely buying it. i was just wondering if it’s possible to add filter/sort portfolio items based on its type, since i’m not a huge fan of drop down menu. otherwise, it will work perfectly for me. looving the blog! thanks


Hi, first of all thanks for these kind words, I am glad you like it. However it’s not possible to do this, but I might consider to do an update for this using isotope plugin which is used for blog alt. template, but I am not promising anything.


u’re welcome :)

thanks for your consideration, that would be awesome. i bought the theme yesterday and getting ready to explore..

i have two other suggestions for the next update: - seo optimization - adding ‘back to top’ button

keep up the great work :)


Noted ;)

Is there an issue with comments on this theme that I should be aware of?


Hi, no there isn’t, if you have any, please check if it could be cause by recently enabled plugins, or check in theme options if you have enabled ,,hide comments in blog page”
