I have purchased your theme and cannot find where the demo pages are. Can you help?

Hi!., You can import the demo data from Dashboard -> Alms -> General -> Import Dummy Data ( Top right corner)

hi there, nice theme, just few queries.

1. Why box version is very small width? Can width of the page b e ijcrease 2. Can we have full background image on Home page (see through BG instead box structure) Can we have different BG on different pages?


1) Yes, we can increase the width of the content in a boxed version. Kindly, send us your FTP and Wp details immediately via the right bottom form located @ http://themeforest.net/user/designthemes. so that we can change it for you.

2) Get into your theme-directory and you can add new patterns by placing the png files in the folder framework/theme_options/images/pattern/

3) We don’t have the option to change the background for different pages.


When I publish new articles, the comment section does not show and the “comment disable” button is not enabled from the admin section. Please how do i fix.it?

Please check if you have disabled the comments from Buddha Panel -> General -> Others -> Globally Disable Comments on Posts.

I’m interested in purchasing this Alms theme but have a couple of questions. On the homepage templates, is the size (height) of the full width slider at the top easily modifiable? Can the layout of the homepages be modified so that the image slider at the top is only 3/4 of the width of the page, and there is a column to the right of it? Thanks

Hi!., Yes, you can modify the width of the slider section of the layer slider settings, but to have a column on the right side of the slider, you need to customize the code.

Hi I sent you logins on your inbox to login and see what I mean about the comment section not being visible. I checked the settings from”Buddha Panel -> General -> Others -> Globally Disable Comments on Posts.” and everything seems the way they should.

Could you please rectify as my client is freaking out as to why it is taking so long to fix

Hi skinzydude,

Thanks for your valid credentials. We checked the “Default Article Settings” under Discussion Settings.

We enabled, the default comment option, check this screenshot: http://grab.by/A1eo

By the default, the comment section is enabled for articles, check this screenshot: http://grab.by/A1eM

So we checks, now the comment section is overall “enabled” for articles.

Note: If you have any issues regarding the above issue, kindly send me any screenshot, it’s better to under stand.

Does this theme come with the original PSD as well? Thanks!

Does this theme come with the original PSD as well? Thanks!

No the PSD files are not included with the theme files.

Can the fa icons be replaced with photographs?


Thanks for making Contact

Yes, it can be done. You need to add custom css code and call the custom icons as a background images.

Looking forward your purchase happily :-)

Regards., DesignThemes.

Thanks! Can you tell me what the custom css code is and where exactly in the css file it should go. One image is located at http://www.mysite.com/images/bg-image.jpg.


Kindly help us to confirm that you were actually purchased our theme by getting back to us with the purchase code or send us an email via our profile page http://themeforest.net/user/designthemes (right bottom).

I am sure this is right in front of my face, but I am having the hardest time setting the default menu type to a color other than #fff

I have the header type on the third/centered logo setting, disable menu settings to No and have my two colors for link and hover, but they only appear on the child menus. How can I change the main menu font color to something other than white?

Have changed some in the CSS, but nothing works.


1) For changing the color of the main menu, go to Buddha Panel -> Integration -> Custom Css. We have added the custom css code. Change the color as per your needs.

2) We have fixed the editor issue. Please check it.

Great. Thank you so much.

Hello. We love your theme. Do you know of any churches (or non-profits) that are using the Alms theme? Although the demo is excellent, a live website would be great to see.

Hi., Sorry we are not supposed to give our clients website url here.

Totally understandable. Thanks.

OK, Thanks

Dear Customers,

Hi, I’m working with your template that my client bought and i’have some troubles with any differents parts of wordpress.

First of all, the image editor of wordpress doesn’t show the image and you couldn’t edit the image properly.

If you work with woocommerce, when you add a new product and then you go to products to see it in the list, it doesn’t show it to you, you could see there’re products created because it says “products(6)” but not displayed.

When i saw this trouble I installed again the WP4 and your template in a localhost and everything happens again, so I change the template to the default and all troubles disappear.

So what i have to do with that?

Thank’s, Victor.


Kindly, update our theme with latest version to fix the issue. Follow the below steps to update the theme:-

1) Download the theme from themeforest page.

2) If you have made any custom changes in the code, please take a backup of it.

3) Overwrite the updated theme files to the older theme files. Update the custom change that you had already.

4) Go to wp-content/plugins/ through FTP.

5) Remove the folder designthemes-core-features/ from wp-content/plugins/

6) Then Login to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Install Plugins. Install the Designthemes Core Features plugin. That’s it. Now you are updated to the latest version.

Thank you guys, everything works right now!


Thank You.

How can I edit the page template of sermons? For some reason when I created the menu it is giving me a left sidebar page, but I want it to display full-width. Is there a shortcode I can use to display the latest sermons and use the full-width template?



1) The sermons page gets the layout of archive pages. So you can set the layout from Dashboard -> Alms -> Speciality Pages -> Archives -> Archives Layout.

2) This is the shortcode for sermons list [dt_sermon_list /]

Dear Customers, We will be on Holiday for Next 2 Days! Thank you Very Much for Understanding…Team will be back on Friday.

My site is working fine but i need to add more links/pages to the menu but each time i saved it, some of the menu at the bottom (whether the new added ones or the old ones) will be removed.

So my question is, does that mean that there is maximum limit of menus that be added to your menu list?


Thank you for contacting us.

Increasing that will not create any problems like attack. Just ask them to increase and check the menu issue. Because most of the clients having this issue, was fixed by that solution only.

Done, Thank you.

I have problem with Galleries after moving site to another server with different URL (from test ULR site to destination URL). Everything works fine, except Galleries. All pictures, below button “Click here to add images” disappeared. They are in media library, but they are not connected with actual posts in Galleries.

Could you help me, please?


Thank you for contacting us.

Kindly, mail us your site credentials (WP & FTP access logins) immediately via the right bottom form located @ http://themeforest.net/user/designthemes So that, we can check and have a clear look form our end. Then we’ll help you to get rid of it ASAP !!

Hi, I would like to know if there is an option to disable the date/comment details on blog posts pages. At the moment I’ve added custom css through the options panel to hide it .blog-post .post-details {display:none !important;} But since it still renders with the page, I would like a more direct approach on this. Hope to hear back from you soon, thanks in advance.

Hi, this shortcode is incomplete in the documentation it only shows [dt_address title=”” /] title is to show the boldcase title but how do i reference the address itself? i’ve tried id=”” didn’t work as the others did.

Also what mailchimp plugin are you using or needs to be installed to manage the alms mailchimp widget


1) You need to use the address shortcode as shown below,

 [dt_address title='Address']103, C Block, West Street, New York, BMC, US[/dt_address] 

2) First you need to enter the mailchimp API code in Dashboard > Alms > General > Others > Mailchimp API KEY and then refresh the widgets page and check the mailchimp widget.
