This is the style.css file of a child theme

/* Theme Name: Femei Active Theme URI: Version: 1.0 Description: WordPress Responsive Theme Template: Universe Text Domain: femeiactive */

@import url(”../universe/style.css”);

Unfortunately here is how this child theme displays when active http://i.imgur.com/MUJW3mQ.png

How can I solve this? Unfortunately I cannot provide FTP access since this is being developed on localhost.

Best, Robert.


Hi again,

I managed to solve this issue, but I really think that you should change the function from get_stylesheet_directory_uri to get_template_directory_uri for the predefined/default color of the theme.

Otherwise the solution is to copy the core/css/colors directory into the new child theme.

All the best, Robert.

Hi robertmindroi,

glad you found a solution and thank you very much for your feedback and how to work around this. To copy the core/css/colors to the child theme is the best approach in the current version since the colors will define just the appearance of the theme and not the functionality this way it’s possible to override theme functionality in the child theme without touch core code on parent theme. Again thank you very much and if you need further assistance count on us to make that. Have a nice day.

Why isn’t a marker added for the google map plugin? The map is pointless without an indicator …


Hi logansgraphicd, thank you for using our theme. If you need a marker on your map please do the following: Go to universe_theme/core/includes and open the file theme-function.php take a look at the line 61 where we have the core_print_map() function, replace that function with this new version:

function core_print_map($lat, $lon) {
    $lat_info = $lat;
    $lon_info = $lon;
        function initialize() {
            var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(<?php echo $lat_info;?>,  <?php echo $lon_info;?>);
            var mapOptions = {
                zoom : 8,
                center : myLatlng

            var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), mapOptions);

            var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                  position: myLatlng,
                  map: map,
                  title: ''

        function loadScript() {
            var script = document.createElement('script');
            script.type = 'text/javascript';
            script.src = 'https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?v=3.exp&sensor=false&' + 'callback=initialize';

        window.onload = loadScript; 
<?php }

This should help you, feel free to get in touch if you need help. All the best.

Just purchased today!

· I cannot see a “how to” manual – is there one?

  • I would like to remove universe logo in header and add text- how to I do this?

· I would also like to set up events and news exactly as per the theme on themeforest

· I cannot see how to set up slideshow ( as per your original theme)

Thanks for your help


Hi themagpiesaid, thank you for using our theme, a user guide is included in the downloaded package you should find it in the ‘Universe Manual’ folder. If you are having a harder time configuring theme, please email us with your website url and wp login details this way we can setup your website and make quick customizations as you need. All the best.


thanks for the quick reply. I am currently using universe them off line on wamp. Will set url on host in next couple of days and get back to you. BTW I could not see the user manual in the download files. What is the filename please or can I download from sowewhere?
Many thanks

Hey there :) I purchased your theme yesterday for a project I am working on, everything seems to be working fine, the theme is great! I just have one question: is there any way to get rid of the yellow line up on the page? The website is www.mikroinovace.eu


Hi samuelkolesar, thank your for your kind words and for using our theme, regarding your request, this is how you can remove yellow top border, go to your WP Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Options > Custom CSS and paste the following snippet of code:
body {
border: none!important;
This should remove the border, please let us know if you need further assistance. All the best.

Works flawlessly, thanks!
