Hi, great theme!

I was looking through some of the sites using this theme and found a common error on these sites, as below:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare admin_sites() (previously declared in /home/tsexton/public_html/wp-content/themes/angular/functions.php:401) in /home/tsexton/public_html/wp-content/themes/angular/includes/related-posts.php on line 108

The sites are as below:

Is this a known issue and how can it be resolved?

Hey! A quick forum search didn’t show any requests but if you have problems with setting up the theme will will gladly assist in solving any issues. If this is a bug caused by the theme will will certainly fix it :)

I am having trouble installing the upgraded theme. The issue states Destination folder already exists. /home5/yohannes/public_html/wp-content/themes/angular/

Theme install failed.

My Lightbox isn’t working properly as well I have version AngularVersion: 1.2.2 in need to upgrade.

Best, Yohannes

Hey! You first need to delete the old theme from your server, only then can you install the new one :)

If you havent made any changes to the theme files (php, css) non of your settings will be lost, they will be temporarily disabled until you have activated the latest version of the theme :)

“Nov 1st Update: we have updated the framework folder across all of our WordPress Themes for security and new functionality! Read more about the Changes at the bottom of the Page. Updating is highly recommended! ” ¿Where I can download this update? Thanks

Latest version is always available here: http://themeforest.net/downloads

Thanks, I download the file, but in the vetsion.txt, I see that is the “2013 August 7th – Version 1.7” not the Nov 2013 version that you writte as a last update.


I have previously purchased your Enfold theme and absolutely love it. I am interested in purchasing the Angular theme. I have read that the drag and drop layout builder isn’t included. Do you know if ‘visual composer’ plugin or something similar would work with Angular?


Hi there, I’ve been creating portfolio items on my portfolio website using the Angular theme. I added images for the slide. When I click on the arrows on the top right hand side it only shows the next image and then it doesn’t want to show any other ones when I try to click on the arrows. Can this be fixed at all? Thanks, Jasna

Hey! Mind opening up a thread in our support forum? My support team will take care of you ;)


Please add a link to your site and also tell us if you have made any recent changes (modified code, activated new plugins etc)

I would like to have a confirmation about the last version of Angular. Is it still 1.7 or is there a newer version ? On the website it seems there is a newer one but on Themeforest, we are still stucked on 1.7 Can you please confirm ?

1.7 is the most current version :)

Hi there,

Just wondering if updating to the latest wordpress version will cause conflict with the theme. I just updated wordpress in november and there was an issue with the slideshow being stuck on the second slide in portfolio. But doing the theme update fixed the issue. (had to manually check the files to make sure nothing was modified outside of wordpress). Just wanted to make sure you haven’t encountered any issues with wordpress 3.8 update.

Please advice :) Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply! What do you mean by portfolio sorting? Do you mean sorting each portfolio item into a category? I haven’t replaced all of the files in the theme folder, only the ones that were noted in the version.txt file to have changed with the theme update. Hopefully that wont be an issue when I upgrade to wordprese 3.8

the sorting buttons above portfolio items are no longer visible in version 3.8 due to some changes of wordpress and if you want to use them you would need to update to the latest theme version. replacing only the mentioned files is ok ;)

Perfect! Thanks again.

Before purchasing, I have to verify one thing. Can a portfolio item be a video? Would be doing this for a client who does a lot of videos. Thanks!

I’m sorry, I was looking at your forum and saw on post #212288 that the user does have videos as featured media. That user uses Vimeo. Would flowplayer be supported as well?

Sorry, currently only vimeo and youtube videos are supported…

Thanks a lot for your quick reply. I’ll be purchasing this theme shortly.

Hi Kriesi,

I am considering this theme for an artist who makes high and narrow statues and have a pre-purchase question:

In your demo the portfolio overview has landscape size images. Can the images in the portfolio of this theme also be set to a different (portrait) size?

Thanks for your advise!

Regards, Monique

(I may be asking the same kind of question for other themes as well.)

Hey! The Enfold Theme of ours does offer the option, unfortunately this theme doesnt :)

Ok, I’ll focuss on Enfold then. Thanks!

Hello Kriesi! wich is the shortcode to show the latest portfolios on the home page? thank you :)

Hi there, had a question about using different images for the thumbnails in portfolio section that don’t appear in the slideshow itself. I found a previous thread where it mentions to do the following:

“Angular > Theme Options > Layout & Settings and search for the “Slideshow behavior on overview pages” option. Select “Display only single image on overview pages and all slideshow images except the first one on single entries” there.

But when I click on theme options – layout & settings (or styling, contact, sidebar, etc. for that matter) it only shows the Angular Theme Options intro page that starts with “Import Dummy Content:..” “Frontpage Settings” etc. Any idea why I can’t see the other pages to change settings there?

Appreciate the help! Thanks

Hey! Mind opening up a thread in our support forum then?We will proceed there.


Please add a link to your site and also tell us if you have made any recent changes like code modifications. We will maybe require a login to the backend which can also be sent via private replies in the forum :)


Hello Kriesi! i need your help please. wich is the shortcode to show the latest portfolios on the home page? thank you

Hey! The theme does not come with the revolution slider, sorry. YOu can use the internal slideshow by going to angular->template builder, add a template builder slideshow element to the entry, then go back to the entry and add images to post slideshow.

I would maybe recommend to use the import dummy data button at angular->general options to import the demo content so you see how its done :)

Thanks!! :-D

You are welcome :)

On my portfolio is it possible to have the pics one below one?? I don’t want slider cause the text on the right side sometimes is too long and im prefer to have the images one under other..




Thats unfortunately not possible by default, however it would probably take only 1-2 hours for a capable CSS developer to add some CSS rules that make this possible. its unfortunately out of the scope of our support, however I think you should be able to find someone on microlancer.com who can do that :)


you are welcome ;)

Is possible to have on the top the Soundcloud and Youtube links?? And.. why the social buttons on top are opened in the same window?? I want to open them in a different window

Thanks a lot

Hey! I am sorry but it is not possible without customization. You can do most of it in your header.php file. at around line 130 you will notice that the script creates several links to the social services. you could add the target=’_blank’ to each in between the “a” and the “href” to make them open in a new window.

Adding completely new icons would require a little more effort. YOu would need to add something like this at line 135:

                            echo "
  • Add me at youtube
  • ”; echo “
  • Add me at soundcloud
  • ”;

    and then add additional styling to your custom.css file, as well as additional icon images.

    if you are not familiar with php and css: you can hire someone at microlancer to do this. shouldnt take more than an hour or so but is unfortunately out of our support scope…

    Hi guys!!

    On my portfolio page when i open a portfolio with the ajax effect, on the top there are 3 buttons: ’-’ ’+’ and ‘x’


    Can i change this buttons and write: ‘prev’ ‘next’ and ‘close’ ??

    If its possible, where i have to do it??

    Thanks a lot

    Hey! You would need to edit the file: angular/includes/loop-portfolio.php by hand.

    In line 81 you can see the + and – symbol. here you can replace them :)

    PS: love what you did with the template, great styling choice :)


    On my site http://www.defragartists.com/ why the twitter button doesn’t open the twitter account page?? And is possible to open the social links in a new window??


    Hey! Works fine for me the browser opens the twitter account as expected.

    if you would want to open the link in a new window you need to directly edit the header.php template file. scroll down to line 131 and search for the part that reads:

    a href='http://twitter.com/

    change it to

    a target='_blank' href='http://twitter.com/


    On my homepage http://www.defragartists.com/ if u see the blog news under the artists.. i want the date, post title blog and the blog content that is below the featured image in line on the left with the featured image..

    How can i do it??

    Thanks a lot!!

    Hey! I am not sure I understand. mind elaborating a little bit and describe the problem in detail?

    Here: http://www.defragartists.com/news/

    U can see that the post title, date post and content entry are on the right and the post featured image is larger… I want post title, date post and content entry on the left in line with the post featured image..

    How can i do it??


    add this to your custom.css stylesheet in folder /css/ or to the quick-css panel located in your wordpress backend at Enfold->Styling:
    .blog-meta {
    display: none;
    .template-blog .post-entry .seven {
    width: 100%;
    margin-left: 0;
    .template-blog .post-title.offset-by-one{padding-left:0;}

    Is not possible to have Featured Image option on portfolios page?? Cause if i upload the image from the Slideshow option u can see this…


    Some faces are not full.. The preview pic only show half face from the artist..

    Hey! Wordpress crops the images so they fit the grid. The only thing you can do is to go to angular->layout & settings and change the “Slideshow behavior on overview pages” you could then set a smaller optimized image as the first image of the grid, which is not displayed in the ajax preview :)

    I’m on version 1.2.1 and cannot figure out how to update. It’s telling me I have no updates and my slideshows keep getting stuck. UGH! Please help.


    Please go to http://themeforest.net/downloads to download the latest version. you need to use the account you used to purchase the theme which does not seem to be Nikkileedesigns :)

    Hi, I am having a problem with the contact form. No matter which email adress i defined, i could not recieve the form post. Since there is not too many settings about the contact form what i can do ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey! Its most likely that your host does not the sendmail php option that is used by wordpress. The easiest way is to contact your host and ask them to activate it.

    Another option would be to try to use this plugin to send mails via smtp instead of php: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/
