First, I wanted to say how beautiful and professional the Athena theme is. I’m glad I purchased it.
However, I am unable to install the theme by way of the .zip file downloaded directly from here – Wordpress provides only a Failure notice with no reason given. I am using WordPress 3.5.1 on DreamHost
I have also deactivated all plugins and that has made no difference.
Any input is appreciated!

How do we add a slider to a page?
Sorry It doesn’t support that. I will consider to add it into the future if there are many requests from customers.
That was a fast reply. You did a great job with the theme, peerapong. You deserve many more sales.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
peerapong, how do I add the tagline and services shortcodes to the homepage?
You can create a page and add shortcode to it. Then you can select page to display on homepage using Theme Setting > Homepage.
But then that page wouldn’t have a slider on it would it? Or would it appear under the slider?
Alright finally! Thank you!
You are welcome
Btw, Could you help me rate for the theme please?
Is it possible to move the left sidebar in the single post and archives pages to the right hand side?
Sorry, it needs a custom modification. This type of customization is a bit more complex and is not covered under normal theme support.
If you’re interested in hiring a developer for building out this custom page template for you, we highly recommend to check out: Tweaky
But I will add it into the future if there are many requests from customers
I have a problem with your theme on www.imaginacreativos.com, the problem is that i CANT translate “Recent Post” Widget, i need put “Últimos Post”, i have edit the en_US.po but this isnt translated!
Please help me, i need that.
You can translate that part by editing /lib/custom.lib.php file.
I purchased the Athena theme back in February this year. On the home page of the website that uses the theme there are currently 3 sliders. I now wanted to add a 4th and link it to a page but it seems that the area in Admin to add a link to a slider is no longer available.
Can you please advise how I can add this back it to be able to manage sliders.
Please login with your purchased account
Now logged in hopefully….
How did you add sliders?
Hi someone else set up this site but im told they went thru the standard function to add.
Did they edit theme code? Because on standard theme feature. You can setup 1 homepage slider using Wordpress Dashboard > Slides.
Please follow the theme’s instructions in /manual/index.html it will help you get through all theme features.
Just some further info that might help fix the problem. I have read the manual and note that it says:
you can select content type for this slide.
• If you select “Image” type, you can enter “Link URL” to this slide so when visitor click on the slide. They will be directed to entered URL.
• If you select “Vimeo” or “Youtube” video type, you have to enter video ID ex. “cdygEzfbhqc” for Youtube and “27299211” for Vimeo and visitor can play video content within homepage slider.
This is the section that seems to be missing in the Admin now that I’m trying to link my slide.
Hope you can help as it’s really important I get this updated.
Sorry the screenshot is incorrect. Portfolio item is mainly used for video content only. You can use galleries module for image content instead.
Thanks for the info. I am a total novice at wordpress and the person who set up the site is now out of the country for several weeks so I really at a loss to try and sort this out.
If you were to look at the website www.azzurricommunications.com.au and view the code would that help identify if the theme has been edited at all? Is there a way to add the url into the code in the site, rather than through the theme standard features if the problem can’t be identified?
I’m happy to pay for your time as it’s getting quite serious now that I fix this asap.
Thanks, appreciate your time.
It’s located in your downloaded file from Themeforest
I did review the instructions and in comparing with our site the “Image Type” section doesn’t appear at all in the Slider content area. Are you able to log in and take a look.
Could you send your Wordpress account and FTP detail please.
Thanks very much. Can you please send me a direct contact email so that I can send privately.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Send it using my profile form mail please.
Have send through the details. Thanks
I am wondering how i can replicate your home page 1 example including the text components and slider at the bottom?
Open /manual/index.html find “Setup Homepage Main Contents”
While I have little website knowledge, firstly I would like to thank you for such a beautiful and functional theme you have produced. I am having a problem with the contact us page I have built whereby the when pressing the send message button, nothing happens. No message is sent and the screen doesn’t confirm message has been sent. Any help appreciated.
Provide URL of your contact page please.
Thanks for response.
It is http://www.ecomotiveadvanced.co.uk/
Please check your Wordpress URL setting is “http://www.ecomotiveadvanced.co.uk/” not “http://ecomotiveadvanced.co.uk/”
After you changed it. Try to remove current contact page and create it again please.
Hi peerapong. Apologies for not replying sooner. The Wordpress URL is http://www.ecomotiveadvanced.co.uk/. I have tried deleting and recreating a new contact us page without success. It works if I use contacts 7 plugin but do not like how it looks. I have also tried deleting and uploading the contacts.php file with no success.
Please ignore my last post. I did find the help file. I am having an issue with the slider rendering IE8. Any suggestions?
I love the theme! I have a contact form question.
Is there a way to set up an auto responder message through the theme?
Auto responder message should setup in your email account.
That poses an issue for anyone who uses gmail or google apps to host their email.
In its current state, the form does not send messages with the users email address in the Return-Path field.
Google does not support auto responding to an emails Reply-To addresses.
Do you know if the theme supports Contact form 7?
“A Personal or Group responder SHOULD NOT deliver a response to any address other than that in the Return-Path field, even if the Return-Path field is missing.”
“The Reply-To field SHOULD NOT be used as the destination for
automatic responses from Personal or Group Responders.”
“The Return-Path address is really the only one from the message
header that can be expected, as a matter of protocol, to be suitable
for automatic responses that were not anticipated by the sender.”
So based on the above, it would be a clear violation of the spec to
send canned responses to the Reply-To address.”
OK thanks for sharing
Is this version compatible with Wordpress 3.6?
I am working on the issue and will release the update soon.
Do you have instructions for setting up a child theme? Using the guidelines from the Codex results in the loss of all theme setting when the child theme is activated and they remain missing when the parent theme is reactivated. Is there a trick to this with Athena?
I will have a look and release the update for child theme soon.
Hi, I am having some issues editing the menu. Is there a message board/support forum where I can provide login info and screenshots?
Please send it using my profile form mail please.
Same issue in menu, seems like drag and drop is being interfered with. Also, list types don’t work in services? Seems like a good place people would want to use lists. Any new updates coming for this theme?
The latest version of theme which fix issues on Wordpress 3.6 is available to download.
Download from Themeforest > your account > downloads and replace all theme’s files and folders using FTP account with the new version.
All of your settings and contents remain the same.
Also please make sure your plugins support WP 3.6
Hi. I just install your nice theme on WP site.
How can I make Uber Menu working with your theme?
Thanks in advance for your support
first of all congratulations for the great job you did on “Athena”
I hope I can explain.
I am using qTranslate (http://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate/) and if I insert the tags that should allow the translation in the “Page Option” in the “Page Description” (see attachment: http://cl.ly/image/2c2j1A1Z3X43) does not work.
I get this: http://cl.ly/image/04230m273Y0w
The same happens on the pages template “team page” and “contact”
Instead, it functions on the page “standard template” but the text takes on a format and a different location
The site right now is in the process of publication and is not visible but if I need to show it
Thanks for the help you can give me.
I have install the wordpress version 3.6 with this theme (v1.4), but I have a problem with the menù in the wp-admin area.
I can’t move up and down the voice of menù.
How can I fix it?
How can I fix the gap as shown on here: http://d.pr/i/PMY6 without changing the logo size? Please advise.
Provide URL of your site please.
Open /css/screen.css find ”#menu_wrapper .nav ul li a, #menu_wrapper div .nav li a” and adjust its padding values.
One more question: how can I center the menu text to line up with logo? http://d.pr/i/JKJd
Thank you very much.
Did you know about Firebug a Firefox plugin?
The main CSS file is /css/screen.css
How do I get the “Home” navigation menu item to be shown as a “current item” in the navigation bar?
Also, is there a way to reorder the portfolio category items so that they are not alphabetical. I would like to arrange the portfolio so that a category called “Sales/Marketing”, for example, can come before “3D Animation”.
Thanks a lot!
1. When you create a menu item. Use custom link and add your site URL for its URL.
2. You have to edit file name “portfolio-3-filter.php”
