I have just installed my Aerial Theme (Layers), but it doesn’t work properly. When I try to customize my theme, the customizer doesn’t work and only appears a white screen (only HTML text, no styles CSS) with this message:

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!

Please, I need my customer is waiting for his web, and I have to develop this website as soon as possible.

Thanks for the attention.

Trully yours.

Hi, please send me your site url & login info via my contact form so I can check the problem directly.

Hi, your demo only show’s one banner ad at the top. What sizes of banners can be added, and how many can be added per page? Do you have some more info on the banner uploader? Thanks. (I emailed you too – feel free to reply via that if you want).

Hi, The banner uploader is just a simple image uploader in the customizer, without click tracking and there is only 1 ad space available at the header. The image size is not defined so you can upload any size and it will be resized to fit in the header area. Sorry, this theme doesn’t have a banner uploader for pages, maybe you can use a plugin for that functionality.

Nice Work, Good Luck With Sales

Hello great creator of this amazing theme! I have a content slider on my home page @ www.secondincomesurveys.com, but the images don’t seem to auto resize to other peoples screen sizes. its really blown up on my phone, my girlfriends computer, etc, just looks good on my monitor. What can I do to better have the slider auto resize if that is even possible. All the other parts of the website resize perfectly. Cheers.

Hi, background image will not be resized but only cropped at the center. Please try using featured image instead of background image in the slider widget.

Ahh, i see, thank you! Although, now there is a huge white buffer around my image, it doesn’t fit perfectly you know? even though i know it is big enough to fit the entire page because it did as the background image. How cna I take away the white and make the image flush but still resize? Thank you very much.

Sorry, I think it’s not possible with featured image.

Hi, looks nice. A couple of quick questions. Is it simple enough to change colors? Will installing layers pro cause any issues? Is it simple to remove the Posts, etc from the blog pages? Im pretty new to Layers so learning as I’m going along and this theme could fit the bill :)

Hi. You can change these colors easily with Customizer: header color, site accent color, footer color, and category color. If you want to change colors for other elements you can use custom CSS. Sorry, I haven’t tested this theme with Layers Pro, but if you have a problem with it please contact me so I can fix it. If you mean to remove posts in Layers pages, yes it’s simple like managing widgets.

How can we change the font or size of the nav text? Thanks.

Never mind

Please update this theme to be compatible with Layers 1.5 http://docs.layerswp.com/layers-1-5-developer-update-guide/

I’m updating this theme and will upload it soon. Thanks for your reminder.

Also the top posts do not resize the thumbnail to a square (it is set to square in the Customize theme section, and I have regenerated thumbnails. It still seems to display as if set to “none,” whatever I do.

What are your image sizes? Please try uploading bigger images and see if it fixes the problem.

Images are 1000px wide or above so that shouldnt be an issue.

Do you have a live url for this problem?

Great theme, but for some reason the search box is being pushed below the main nav and doesnt sit to the side like in the screenshot. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, this theme is not adapted yet for the latest version of Layers. Please wait for an update soon.

Any updates?

The theme update is not quite ready yet, but to fix just the header/nav problem please add this CSS code:
@media only screen and (min-width: 769px) {
    .nav-clear > .header-block {
        display: block;
.nav-clear > .header-block .container,
.header-center > .header-block .container,
.header-site.content.nav-clear .nav,
.header-site.content.header-center .nav {
    -webkit-flex-direction: row;
    -webkit-align-items: center;
    -webkit-justify-content: space-between;
    flex-direction: row;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: space-between;
.header-center .nav .container,
.nav-clear .nav .container {
    -webkit-flex: 1;
    flex: 1;
.header-search {
    margin-top: 0;

I can’t install this theme. I’ve tried every zip file, re-downloaded “installable WP files” and even tried through FTP. What the F???

Here’s what I get:

“This theme requires a parent theme. Checking if it is installed…

The parent theme could not be found. You will need to install the parent theme, layerswp, before you can use this child theme.

Theme installed successfully.”

Read your linked page on this issue and tried everything

This is a child theme of Layers. You need to install Layers from here http://www.layerswp.com/

Hi my site, knighttime.com.au is taking ages to load since I changed to Aerial. Advise gratefully recieved!

I checked your site but it’s loaded normally. Is it in the admin? Have you used the latest version of Layers?

Live preview button for this theme seems to not work…

I like it a few weeks ago, i wanted to give it a second look before decide :)

Hi, I have fixed the demo. Please check it again.


It works, thank you.

I love the design, i will decide soon :)

hi. First of all, thank you for this great job. Two things I can’t figure out:

1. I installed the theme but I can’t get the colored underline on the main menu. Why is that?

2. Can I make ‘video-posts’ so that the video screenshot automatically serve as featured image?

Thanks again

Sorry, what do you mean by more columns? Do you have an example?

Sure, let’s say in the home page I want to have side by side a “post”widget and a “review” widget, each one 50% of the page width. I can’t find out how to do that.

In the “customize” module it looks like I only can add one widget at the time.

Sorry, it’s not possible to add different widgets side by side.

hello how do change header so i put custom image thanks

To add a custom image in the header (as a background), please add this css code in the customize page:
    background: url(http://www.yoursite.com/folder/image.jpg);
Please read this for more detail

Hey gawibowo

Just wanted to say congrats on an awesome Layers theme. Our whole team is blown away by the quality and effort that has been put into it. Well done!

David Perel

Thanks David for your kind words, and for your awesome Layers theme.

Can you set the featured post to be the full width with the content like it is on one of the other home pages?

If you use Layers Posts Widget, yes you can set it to be full width.

Hi, thank you for this great theme. I couldn’t find how to change the header logo size and text size, what would be the best way to do that? Thanks.

To change logo size, please add this css code in Customize -> CSS:
.header-site .logo .site-logo-link img {
    max-height: 100px;
And for the text size, do you mean the general body font size? If yes, please use this code:
body {
    font-size: 20px;
(change 100px and 20px with your own value)
Thank you very much for the logo size. I was actually asking about the header text size, I followed the previous example and did this:
.header-site .logo .site-description a {
    font-size: 3em;
Hope this is OK.

Yes, your code should work for the site title.

Does this theme work with the EventEspresso plugin? http://eventespresso.com/

Hi, I haven’t tested Event Espresso plugin with this theme, so I can’t say for sure. Sorry.

Nice and great theme, Good luck with sales :)
