I like very much your theme but I have nevere bought e theme and I’m begginer in wordpress.

1)Your theme is easy to customize? 2)I would like create a simple page of welcome without slides,recent work and our clients. Only my logo and simple short my presentation. Is it difficult to do it? 3)Can I Switch 4 widget footer with other 4 widget (for example: youtube, text, banner or other) easily without php modifications but only managing on the sidebar? 4) Can I add my copyright on the footer easily?


  1. I did my best to make it as east as possible, but it always depends how much you want to customize it
  2. That should be easy, there’s a logo uploader in Theme Options
  3. Sure, you can use any widget you want (and you can install free widgets plugins)
  4. Yes, there’s also setting for this in Theme Options


hi, will your shortcodes work in the sidebars?

Hi, most of them should work without any problem, do you have any special in mind so I could check it?

hi, thanks for youre reply. I especially mean the Notice Boxes. Do they work in the sidebars?

I love the look of your theme, but want to make sure I can use it with the wpmudev marketpress plugin. Has that plugin been tested?

Hi, no it wasn’t tested and I can’t guarantee it will work, for sure it won’t look as nice as the WooCommerce for which Astrum is designed. Thanks.

hi, will it be possible to modify the resolution of the theme? For screen resolutions with 1280×800 your theme is really big. will this be possible?

No without some heavy modification, it’s designed that way to use wide screen displays

Before I purchase. Can you tell me how well this theme will perform with BB Press. Any known issues?

To be honest I never tested it with bbpress, but I’ll try it.

I just want to translate the “read more”-button at the blog template. Where do I find these .mo and .po language files?

Hi, they are located in astrum/language, but you can try that plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/ so you don’t need to edit any files

Very nice work. Could you send sample content xml file? :)

Sorry, but you don’t have Purchased badge on your comment.

Although I do not change much hassle column. Please could you help?


Please first buy the theme, then I can help you.

Great theme and very fast support to resolve my trouble! I’m satisfied.

How can I make it so that the comments are not automatically approved, but they need to be manually approved?

That’s basic WordPress, not theme related, but in wp-admin -> Settings -> Discussion -> select Before a comment appears Comment must be manually approved

Thank you!

Hi there, as I am adding items in my menu, it’s starting to expand the width of it and therefore dropping my menu into two lines. How do I change the the width of the header to allow more space for menu items?

That’s not possible, you’d need to change whole CSS grid on which the theme is based. You probably need to organize your menu in dropdowns in that case.

Allow me to show some visual reference to better help you understand what I mean.

Take a look at the contact and search icon – it drops below the menu


Oh, that. Go to wp-admin -> Appearance -> Theme Options -> Header – and change Logo area width to 3 or 4 columns

Oh geeze – that was easy! thanks!

Is there a way to make the logo scroller automatically scroll? http://triworth.uldev.co/

Update Astrum to latest version 1.0.8 and you can modify file custom.js and add autoPlay:”on”, after $(’.our-clients-cont’).showbizpro({

Hi i would like to know how i can change the font colors of the

on all the pages. Is there a setting for that? Or do i need to change it in CSS?

You need to add it in Custom CSS box in Theme Options, for example:
body { color: red; }

Thank you!

I can’t seem to make the ‘Blog – Small Image’ template work. I have selected ‘Blog Template – Small Thumbs’ on my main blog page and selected “Image” in the post Format but it displays the full size image instead of a thumbnail. When I select “Standard” in the post Format all I get is a pencil icon. Please advise. Thank you!


please open a private ticket on my support forum http://purethemes.ticksy.com/ with login details to your wp-admin, I’ll check what’s wrong.

Thank you, I have reposted to ticksy.com!


Want change/translate “Read More”, “Showing” etc to Turkish. Editing astrum/languages default.po file.

wp-config file is default; define(‘WPLANG’, ’’);

msgid “Read more” msgstr ””


msgid “Detay” msgstr ””


msgid “Read more” msgstr “Detay”

Nothing changes! What is wrong?



You need to use PoEdit to create your own language file to be used in Astrum, or simply use this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/

Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to change the “portfolio” URL http://your-domain.com/portfolio/ to something like http://your-domain.com/products/

Furthermore when I open the main portfolio page, it shows all active portfolio Items. Is it possible to deactivate certain filters on this main page?

Thank you in advance and keep up the good work!


sorry for a late answer but we were on a short break. The first question is easy, here’s the answer http://purethemes.ticksy.com/faq/1608 the 2nd one would require custom modification.

Thx for getting back on this. The first thing is a huge help (I didn’t check the FAQ properly it seems)! the second would be a nice to have but it is ok the way it is.

Hello ! Is it a gravity forms compatibility theme please ? Thx yaya

Hi, I’ve never tested it, but I don’t see any reason for it to not work

Hello. I have bought few days ago that theme and I have a question about the portfolio block. Is possible to link a picture of the portfolio with an external url?. At the moment it´s being impossible to me. Thanks.

Hi Pablo, no, it’s not possible, it would require custom modification in the code.

Although i have set the following settings, my import with the import.xml freezes still half way through at 55%.

Try to add the following to the wp-config.php file: define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘64M’);

And the following to a php.ini file: upload_max_filesize = 64M post_max_size = 64M max_execution_time = 300

Any further hints to solve that?


Hi the import.xml is less than 1MB, so the memory limit shouldn’t be a problem. To be honest I don’t know what could cause it, but my guess it’s something on the server side, as 99% buyers don’t have any problem with importing
