Hello there, having an issue with revolution slider.

It suddenly stopped appearing on the homepage. I re-selected it in the theme options and re-saved. Nothing. The slider appears without any issues when I preview it. It just won’t show. I am not a developer but when viewing source in Chrome, I come across entries about the silder.

The site is already live so I need to resolve this fast =[

Thank you in advance!

I would like to add more google maps or more addresses in one map, is it possible?

Not without some customization, the shortcode map is really simple, basic shortcode, but there are really awesome plugins for google maps available so you can try one of those wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=google+maps if you need something more complex

ok, thx

Hi ! I need to use the Pricing Tables and have few questions : - how can I get 3 columns like in your example? The code I found in your documentation is for 4 tables, and when I remove one they don’t use the entire space width - how can I change $ in € ?

Thanks for your help !

It’s OK I found it :)

Ok, thanks :)

Hi, to start with, astrum is a wonderful easy to use template!!! Being a non-coder and with no web designing experience I was able to compile the whole website in 5 days.. This is my first support question after purchasing the theme… When I reduce the browser size the contact section on header comes down and the whole layout gets disturbed..This problem exists when the site is opened in google chrome and firefox.. link to website: http://resumeshq.wpengine.com/ please let me know how can I solve this problem..Cheers

Hi, there’s a setting in Theme Options to set the width after menu will change to ‘mobile friendly’, you need to increase it a little bit as you’re menu is quite long. Nicely done website btw. Cheers!

Is there an easy way to add social icons to the header? e.g. Facebook & Twitter

Maybe in the alternative version of header but it still would require some modifications

Thanks :) I was able to fix header problem. Can you please guide me on how to add the shopping cart icon on the header without turning on woocommerce please..I just need the icon where can I can insert a hyperlink..Also how can I add “Aleo” font in header? thanks

Hi, I’m away for a weekend so I’ll be able to answer this question on Monday. Cheers

Hi in functions.php there’s a section that starts with:
 $labels = array(
            'name' => __( 'Portfolio','purepress'),
            'singular_name' => __( 'Portfolio','purepress'),
Try to change each ‘portfolio’ text there, it should be the ‘name’ that is used in the title tag, but I’m not 100% sure.

Awesome!! that worked!! thanks a lot..it was the “name section”..

Would really appreciate if you can please guide me on how to add the shopping cart icon on the header without turning on woocommerce please…thanks

Hi, there’s a line in header.php:
<?php $minicart = ot_get_option( 'pp_woo_header_cart' ); if($minicart== 'yes') { get_template_part( 'inc/mini_cart'); }?>
which includes the inc/mini_cart.php but as you can check, this file is build specifically for woocommerce, and changing it would require some customization.

Hi! Would like to solve a problem on my toggles.

How can I make the first toggle always opened? By adding in what code in html?

Because I saw from your demo page: http://astrum.purethemes.wpengine.com/faq/ and tried few ways to make it, but cannot.


Hi use it with attribute open=”yes”
[toggle open="yes" title="title"] content [/toggle]

Where do I find the shortcode for the newsletter sign up?

Thank you!

Hi, there’s no shortcode for that, there’s a widget for Newsletter, but first you need to install this widget http://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-widget/ and it works only with Mailchimp. You can find about it in documentation. Cheers

hi, I can not translate the comments page, please help me find the page where I can translate it hands

Hi you should translate theme using included default.po file in /languages or better, using this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/

Comments are located in comments.php and in function astrum_comment() in template-tags.php

you the best:)

Hi, I am trying to set the permalink address on postname but it doesn’t work, I get the “404 Not found” page. It only works if I use the page id. I’m sure I did something wrong but I am going crazy to find it!! Thank you

Hi, it’s not really theme related issue, as permalinks are WordPress core functionality, but could you describe step by step how you’re trying to do it? Maybe I’ll be able to help

oh! by the way…. you did a great job, I love your template


I just downloaded your theme, it’s really good, I want to use Alternative header with aligning center, so how can I change alignment of logo and menu from left to center of header?



please open a private ticket on my support forum http://purethemes.ticksy.com/ with login details to your wp-admin. I can modify it to center logo, but centering menu is more complicated and time consuming (even if it seems easy).

One of my clients has given me this theme to use on his website, and I am having an issue. The short code box us covered by my window. I tried scrolling down, but I can’t scroll down anymore, and I can’t click the “Inset Shortcode” button.

If you don’t know what I mean, here is an image. I have scrolled down as far as possible, and still can’t get the button. I even tried re-sizing my window, and everything I could think of:

Oh, sorry, I forgot about it.
[tooltip title="" url="" side="top"] content [/tooltip]

I have a friend who is going to help me out with the CSS. So, I won’t bother you in the forums(I don’t have a purchase code anyways, as you already know). However, I need to ask you what the Button usage is. If you can’t tell me that’s fine. All I need to know is how to set it to a URL, with an icon, and to change from a light color to the main color.

P.S. If you are sick of writing out short codes I understand, and I can just get it when me and my friend fix the popup.

Here you have all shortcodes http://www.docs.purethemes.net/astrum/#shortcodes

the button is:
[button size="small" color="green" url="#" icon="icon-ok" iconcolor="white"] Text [/button]

Where do I find the textdomain value?

Hi, functions.php line 141:
load_theme_textdomain( 'purepress', get_template_directory() . '/languages' );


How to use googlemap with coordinates?

Thanks in advance for your help.


It’s not possible with that shortcode, it’s just a simple shortcode. you can try this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-google-maps/ or any other similar one.


Could you please let me change it manually. Where is the code?

    maptype: "ROADMAP",
    scrollwheel: false,
    zoom: 13,
    markers: [
        address: 'New York, United States',
        html: "",
        popup: false,

Best regards!


Try to replace it with:
    maptype: "ROADMAP",
    scrollwheel: false,
    zoom: 13,
    markers: [
        latitude: -2.2014,
        longitude: -80.9763,
        html: "",
        popup: false,

Hi There,

It’s nice to have such a excellent theme!

Now my issue.

?So basically I want to set my homepage same as demo (that way it’s faster to create home page)

So I checked.


Section: Setting up the static homepage

Steps Settings Reading and in the Front page displays choose A static page, then select page named Home.

However I can’t see home page same as http://purethemes.wpengine.com/demo/?theme=astrum So how to copy this home page in my own website (offcourse I would then change content etc)

Quick response would be greatly appreciated.

Hi James, I’ve replied to your support ticket


There is an encoding problem with twitter widget on 2nd footer. Or is there? Turkish characters are defect.



Hi Nordy

try to edit file inc/widgets.php find line:
 $tweet_text = htmlentities($tweet->text, ENT_QUOTES);
and replace with
 $tweet_text = htmlentities($tweet->text, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8');

Thanks Luk! It looks fine now.

Hi, I have couple of Pre-purchase questions

1) Does it work with the NEW WP version? 2) Is there any limitation in term of number of the images for home slider? 3) Can I replace the home slider to static image? 4) Can I make the home slider slightly taller? 5) For footer can I switch the information’s order or take out some, 2-3 columns instead of 4? 6) Does it have the SEO built-in feature

I have a dead line on this Thursday, if you can get back to me soon I would really appreciated.

Thank you so much!

  • ad1. Yes, it does
  • ad2. No, just a common sense ;)
  • ad3. You can just create slider with single static slide
  • ad4. Sure, you can adjust height as you want
  • ad5. This is widgetized area, so it works like sidebar, but it’s 4 columns always, changing it requires some modifications in footer.php
  • ad6. No, it doesn’t, there are plugins for that
