Hello, I got your theme for free on ENVATO newsletter a while back. I’d like to update the theme to get the PHP 7 compatibility. How can I get the latest version of the theme? Many thanks Best

Your version must support PHP 7. The last update was only for a file with demo content.

You can only get the latest update by purchasing the theme. There is no technical support or updates for free products.

Hi, I want my homepage look like : https://akella.ukathemes.com/demo-2/ but I would like to keep the sidebar on my articles and pages, how can I do that? Thanks

Hi! Alas, this cannot be done without changing the theme.

where do we enter google analytics code?

You can add it to the file footer.php before the closing body tag.


I have a question, on the following demo page:


In the Latest Post section, the featured image in the middle appears full. How to display the full featured image like that.

Thank you.

Hi! Use image post type for this.

Hi Vladimir,

Like the look of the Akella theme, as well (Recently purchased your Melina theme).

Is there a wide home page layout on the Akella theme, rather than just boxed layouts?



No, but you can add a couple of lines to a stylesheet (in the WordPress Customizer or in the file style.css) to get that look – https://akella.ukathemes.com/demo-6/

.site {
    max-width: 100%;

Great, Thank you!

This theme is very easy to use, simple and fast. Great work, thank you.


Hi,Thank you for the theme its really fast. But i have some quest.: *How can i remove featured images to be shown on first in posts ??? *ad how to remove tags from posts…?

Or should i use a plugin for that ???

1. “How can i remove featured images to be shown on first in posts ???”

Turn them off in the Customizer (Header Area Settings).

2. Sorry, but support is provided only to users who bought the theme.

Yes i understand, But even for the first quest. there is no such a buttom to click to edit featured image. There are for header, menus …... but featured image NO :/

aaah thanks, i have just fixed it by css custom code

.single .post-thumbnail { display: none; }

Hi, How Can i change the header style that the logo at the left and put an adsense ad at the right ????

Hi! You can only do this by editing the theme files. There are no settings for this in the theme.

Can i upload my own LOGO ???

Yes. With the help of WordPress Customizer.

Looking to buy the theme and I have a few queries.

1. How long can I increase the number of words in article preview excerpt to? It currently has 2-3 lines.

2. Is it possible for me to expand and keep the search bar by default?


1. You can increase it to any length, but you need to change a couple of lines in the code.

2. To do this, you need to edit the theme.

Hello. I am unable to use Header Featured Content for some reason. I’ve recently bought a theme. I wanted to use it as in Example #1 (Grid 1 Layout + Right Sidebar + Posts Grid).

1. I enabled Posts Grid in header area. 2. Enable Grid 1 Layout and Right Sidebar in content area.

As a result, when I enable Header Featured Content for a posts it just disappears from home page completely.

I currently have only five posts published though, could that be an issue?

Have seven articles in total now, but the problem stays.


Can I use elementor on this theme? Because some themes are not suitable with elementor.

I have not checked for compatibility with such plugins.

can you let me know if it work with elementor…. this will help me to decide which theme to choose for my blog. thanks.

I do not know how you want to use elementor, but here’s what I got after installing the plugin – https://screenshots.firefox.com/X3IN84yQ31Tp7SMD/wordpress .

I think you will need to modify slightly the theme: create page template for this plugin and add some styles to it.

I am facing this error. can you please help me

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

I’m unable to leave a a proper rating for this theme as I was given access to this theme via the monthly giveaway. I am considering buying a future update of this theme as it is very minimal, stylish and fast.

The theme is easy to use and set-up, and I am very happy with how thew code is documented for making mostly minor tweaks to my site.

Thank you to the developer for this really good theme, I would certainly recommend purchasing this theme.

Thank You!

We love the theme but are having some trouble setting the post carousel 1. Where do we set the posts to cycle through the carousel at? I have it set to do so in the header settings but am not seeing the carousel. We are trying to achieve the same look that your Demo 2 displays.


When add or edit post, in “Visibility Settings” field select “Header Featured Content” option.

How to customize? What are the plugins?

Read the theme documentation and comments. If something remains unclear, ask.

hi i installed theme but i want to use demo#5..how can i select it?

Turn on Posts Carousel 1 in Header Area Settings and Default List Layout in Content Area Settings in WordPress Customizer. When add or edit post, in “Visibility Settings” field select “Header Featured Content” option.

Hello.. i get the theme free, thank you for this. I really love this theme but I have an issue about alignment of Logo. I want logo/Site Name to be left align and smaller in size. Can you please guide me How to do that?
