I have also been having issues with this template since upgrading to the latest version of Wordpress. the VisualLightBox no longer works for photos or video. It used to be if I click a photo from the featured section it appeared in a nice javascript lightbox. Now if I click it it just takes it to the photos url straight up. ugly…Same for videos, used to appear in a nice lightbox, now it goes right to the youtube page. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

WP3.8? Yes, no problem with the same solution!


The theme is great so far. However, I have a weird graphical glitch with the featured images. Can you take a look for me?


Everything is up to date.



Please check the documentation before updating.

Excellent product; excellent service… I purchased this product 3 years ago, and highly recommend it. On several occasions I’ve had questions, and each of those times they were answered quickly and made easily understandable.

Hi There-

The theme used to work great for several months. Now, the slider manager installed with the theme no longer allows me to add or remove a slide. The buttons are visible but it when I try to save a change, I get a 403 error and says permission is denied. Any suggestions?


What version of the theme are you using?

Please contact me directly through the contact form in my profile page.


Hi Mbiz,

I want to purchase your theme but I want to know if it is compatible with woocommerce.

I need to purchase a theme by tomorrow as I am in a rush to start my website. I would appreciate to have a fast response.



Hi crystald, Thanks for being interested in my theme. Unfortunately no, it is not currently compatible with wooCommerce.

Ive been using this theme for a long time now and have just update our website with the latest version. It seems Nivo Slider will not let me use the slide navigation buttons when the effect is set to “Fade” but it will if set to the default “Random” effect? Can you help? I need “Fade” with the slider button s working.


Hi swimmingfungus,

theDawn theme doesn’t provide an option for Nivo Slider transition effect, it just uses the default effect which is “random”.
Please check the way you’ve implemented this, or contact me through my profile page to discuss it.


@hirok thanks for confirming my solution worked for you! Happy to help.

@mbiz have you fixed the menu/hover problem in theDawn? As of version 1.6.1, the drop down menus still break when we update WordPress. I posted a less than optimal fix on page 30 of this thread.

need some help, the blog page is showing full post instead of blog excerpts like i have checked off in the reading settings….what am i doing wrong here?
