Hello, my web guy is having a difficult time with your template. Do you have any videos on how to use your template?

Thank you,

Hi I recently purchased your theme which looks great. However, am I missing something as I can’t see how to upload a Header image, or the Apemag image itself for that matter? Thanks

Is this theme still being supported? I don’t see this has been updated since a couple of years but was interested buying it.

Hi—I recently installed Apemag on Wordpress 5.5.3. All seems to be working well, except that the following html code is appearing as visible text on blog posts, just below the title:


I figured it out…just a check box on the Post tab under Main Settings in the Theme Panel.

just reporting:


when I add any code to custom field , it just shows plain text.

Im not sure if this is a bug or im doing something wrong. but

just letting you know.

Im not affected, i edited source code.

↓ can you please how me where I can enable the option


This is about the Title Attribute on Appearance > Menu Page – http://dl2.joxi.net/drive/2016/06/07/0012/0377/807289/89/cefb2db18a.jpg

In case you don’t have it you need to enable on the Screen options -http://dl1.joxi.net/drive/0012/0377/807289/160307/e7edfc2ac2.jpg

oh nvm i got it

Hello, how can we remove the search engine ?

Hello! You can add some custom css rules #search-form-header {display:none}


I’m using your wordpress theme and am really happy about the design and the functionality.

Last update was performed on march 2018. Are there updates in scheduling?

I’m seeing some issues with the picture gallery with Wordpress 5.3.1.

I have concerns to renew the support if this theme will not supported anymore.

Best wishes Wolfgang

is this theme still supported?

Hi, how we configure the Sticky Menu ? I can not make it appear on my home page.

Hi, please check that you don’t have it disabled https://cl.ly/71b9ae895862

Hi love the theme, I am struggling with removing the side bar from the blog roll. I can remove it from all pages but this page Thanks

Hi, I’m not sure if I understand you, the frontpage page template is your blogroll https://cl.ly/ef2aa76b1eba and it does not show any sidebars https://cl.ly/46d51c0451a5 . On the other hand if you are trying to use this option https://cl.ly/69d651a9c8cb it doesn’t allow move or hide the sidebar.

Regards, Luis.

This is a very good Buddypress and BBpress theme and still loving the beautiful design. It would be great if we can expect a new theme something like Bimber and BoomBox, StrictThemes Brand viral theme in future.

Thanks for the kind words, we will think about it ;)

Here’s my purchase code b82c8168-ab9a-476a-b46a-0dd2431e1d25 – 28 Jun 2018 REGULAR LICENSE

I just bought your theme and installed it I see no options for the nice review system, page layouts, etc. What am i missing?

I installed ApemagVersion: 1.0.12 (I did not install the child theme folder).

I’m really lost. Mike

Well, i found the Theme Panel at the bottom, but how do i get the nice Review System like you have shown on http://reviewcobra.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/review-system.png?

For the review system we used a free plugin called WP Review, you can find more information on how to use it here https://mythemeshop.com/plugins/wp-review/

This plugin is not created or maintained by us in any way so our help using the plugin will be limited (they offer free support via wordpress.org forums) other than the correct integration with our theme.

Regards, Luis.

Hi, could you please advice how to move widget bar from right side to left side on Shop page? http://joxi.ru/LmG3eKbce3qxbm

Thank you

I’ll add it for the next release of STKit.

Would you please advice how to enable Breadcrumbs?

In page properties I could see the option that Hide Breadcrumbs, but it’s not active and I still do not see Breadcrumbs on the website.

Breadcrumbs are shown at the bottom of the page, did you see them? https://cl.ly/3C24452K3L0V

Hi, bought your theme a second one. Having a problem when activating a child theme on a fresh and latest WP install. I just installed WP and uploaded Apemag + child theme. When I activated parent theme there seems to be no problem, but as soon as I activate child theme this shows up:

Warning: include(/home/wp-content/themes/Apemag_child/options.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/wp-content/themes/Apemag/functions.php on line 26

Hi, Igor! Any news on a subject?

Any news?

Hi, we sorted it out, will be included in the next release, in the mean time no worries at all.

Regards, Luis.

Hi. Pre-sale question: Is there support for custom post types?

What do you mean? CPT are natively supported by wordpress and apemag should not have any problems rendering your posts, but remember that you may need to create your own template file if you want to customize the way it’s presented.

Regards, Luis.

Hi, I downloaded and tried to install the theme – APE MAG Wordpress theme,

but i received this message, the installation is failed:


Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Theme installation failed.


Hi, did you check this help article? https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821510

This is a very common error.

Regards, Luis.

I am having some trouble with featured images appearing twice in an RSS feed. One a “webfeedsFeaturedVisual” and the other “attachment-post-image”. This is causing the same image to be duplicated in my RSS emails. Is there a way to hide one of these image instances from the feed?


Hi, I don’t see any image duplication. Can you please post a screenshot?

Regards, Luis.

It actually looks like this was being caused by a plugin. I tried disabling plugins until I found the one causing it.

I do have a couple other questions that came up, though:

1. Is it possible to change the size of the images being used for the post-sticky-yes-thumb and post-thumb images? My images there are currently getting stretched. https://prnt.sc/hgu6fz

2. My sticky posts are currently being listed at the top of my blog page, but I would prefer that page be in order by date (regardless of whether a post is sticky), and that sticky posts are only used for the slider on the home page. Is it possible to change the ordering rules on the blog page but keep the slider filter?



1. They are not being stretched, they are resized proportionally until all the edges are covered with the image.

2. I don’t understand your question, they are already ordered by date, both, the slider and the blogroll.

P.S.: by the way, I’m sorry to inform you that your support period has expired but you can extend it by following the link on top of this page to keep getting assistance. (http://take.ms/Tr5gu)

Regards, Luis.

Is it possible to limit the character length of the post content on the blog page? I know this is typically done through Wordpress Reading settings with “display summary”, but that does not work in this theme – I assume because the custom excerpts are being used in the image grid on hover.

Is there a workaround then to cut off content with ”...” after so many characters on the blog page?

Nevermind, I got this figured out!

Glad you sorted it out :)
