Thank you for contacting us and thank you for your interest.

My personal recommendation would be to try out Johannes. Just follow this link here:


Also, feel free to reach out to our support team and tell them which plugins you want to install on your test drive, and they’ll do that for you.

AWSM is a personal CV theme, and I don’t believe that it’ll suit your purpose.

I hope that helps.

Hi Meks,

It would be great if you could add the “ALL” portfolio filter to the translation menu with any new update that will come from now on. The theme can be fully translated except for that tag.

Well, you can translate it if you dig inside the html code, but it would be great if you could put things easier for those who don’t know any html and make it a perfect theme.


Hello, ​​ Thank you for contacting us and thanks for the suggestion. 

​I will pass this request to our Product team and maybe that might be included in some update in the future.  ​ ​If you do have some additional feedback or ideas, feel free to contact us directly, here: https://mekshq.com/contact

Hi. Prepurchase questions… I am a current Meks customer using Herald for my personal site, but think AWSM would suit me better. Do you think switching would be fairly easy, with old content working well? Also, if I purchased AWSM, is it possible to add a custom social network icon? You have a really great and big list of social networks in settings, but unfortunately missing a couple smaller ones I’d prefer to feature. Would support be able to add the ability to add our own in the theme settings/social area? Thanks for your time.

Greetings, Thank you for contacting us.

I would pretty much say yes to all of your questions. For more details please send us a regular support ticket. Our support team will give you all the answers: https://mekshq.com/contact/#support

Best regards, Meks team

Hi will you be updating anytime soon. Very interested, but lots of time has passed since your last update. Thanks


Thank you for reaching out. :)

Well, the theme will surely receive some updates in future in term of maintenance and compatibility, but I doubt that the theme developers team will decide to add new features considering the theme popularity and age.

If you do have some additional feedback or ideas, feel free to contact us directly, here: https://mekshq.com/contact


Helo Meks, I’m trying to insert your demo content to my theme using standard importer since awsm was not worked. My question is how can I get the home page same as your demo. I have chosen the home page as in reading.


Please take a look at our documentation first: http://mekshq.com/documentation/awsm/

If you need any further help, feel free to open a support ticket via http://mekshq.com/contact and we would be glad to guide you through setup process.

Best regards!


I just bought the Theme. I have two questions so far:

1.) How do I upload the profile picture? I can’t find it under any setting.

2.) How do you create the skills section?


You are welcome, we will talk on support

Thank you

Hi again, not sure if you got my email from support. If not please let me know so I can send it again.



Yes we got it, no worries ;) We will respond in timely manner so stay tuned


Is it possible to hide ? : - Social media - the menu - portfolio - Services & skills - blog - map

Finally , I need only the timeline and contact . You can leave active only those two items ?


Yes, you can have only 2 sections if you want. Once you purchase the theme, our support will be glad to help you with the setup :)


Hi, Could you tell me how to change this (Check out my work) and I’d like to make external URL link.

Hi Nash

I’m still investigating why is this happening – I’m really sorry for this. Can you please send us ticket via support@mekshq.com.

Thank you

Hi Meks, please check your email. Thanks

Hi Meks, please check your email. Thanks

Hi, I have presale questions: 1. Is it possible to make the profile picture as square of rectangle and place the social icon below the image? 2. In Portfolio section, when user click a link then it display image. Is it possible that when user click portfolio image than blog will get open? or any other page where I can explain it in text. 3. Is it mobile friendly?


Basically, you are creating separate page for each section and theme automatically creates navigation each time you add a new page. So the answer is yes, you may have as many pages in navigation.

Regarding portfolio head section, those are categories for your portfolio items and you create them from admin panel the same way you create standard categories for standard posts. So, yes, you may have as many portfolio categories as you wish.

Cheers ;)

Hi, I have purchased the theme..I need your assistance as discussed. Thanks :)

Thanks! :)

Please open a support ticket via http://mekshq.com/contact and we would be glad to help.


Hello, I’m trying to make my blog the default home page load(not on one page scroll) while having 1 page scroll on every other page. However every time I do this the links in the navigation do not work unless I take pages off the 1 page scroll feature. Please help



Not sure I’m following you.

You can go to Theme Options -> Navigation and use “Exclude pages from scroll navigation” option. The pages you select there will be excluded from home page scroll sections and will be opened in separate window.

If this doesn’t help, please open a support ticket via http://mekshq.com/contact and we will try to help further.


Hello Meks, Your theme is just awesome one. I want to buy this theme. But one thing I want to know that is this paid theme reusable? I mean may I use this theme onto another blog?


1. If you are going to use this themes on several domains you need to buy it for every domain that you have – http://themeforest.net/licenses/standard

“Note to freelancers and creative agencies:

You may charge your client for your services to create an end product, even under the Regular License. But you can’t use one of our standard licenses on multiple clients or jobs.”

Hope that this helps

I have a real problem with your theme as it lets malware in. My provider blocked the site several times


Can you please contact us to support@mekshq.com with all the details? It is very strange since such an issue is never reported so far and all our themes are highly secured. If you got a malware, there are many ways for entrance, not only through theme. Plugins can be really suspicious.

Please contact us and we’ll see what can we do

hi! tried to add additional icons (pngs of the same size and colours as all the rest with the same naming) to social icons folder (just like for the timeline ones), but they seem not to appear in a drop down menu in Profile / Home section. my mistake or no possibility to add at all? thank you

Hello :)

Unfortunately, social icons work a bit different then timeline icons so you will need to customize the theme a little bit. Please contact us via http://mekshq.com/contact with your website URL and more details so we can see how can we help on this one.


ok, thank you=)

i´m wondering to buy but i´d like to know how easy is to use a picture for background?


It is very easy – you can add it via Additional CSS otpions.

(presales question) For portfolio items, it possible to have just one button, the link button, leading to full portfolio page? So eye and arrow buttons would not show?


Yes, all three buttons are optional so you can use only one if you want ;)

thanks for the reply

You are welcome :)

Hi there.

I want to have one page with 1 type of Portfolio and another page with a different one…Is that possible? Im trying but it doesnt seem so…


Unfortunately it is not possible at the moment. It is supposed to be only one portfolio page on the website. we can only offer you customization work for this feature, if you are interested please contact us via http://mekshq.com/contact

Hi guys, Is the theme compatible with Ithemes security plugin? Thank you ;)

Hello and thanks for your interest!

I don’t see why not, since Ithemes security plugin doesn’t affect front-end and our theme cannot affect back-end features.


Thank you… Seem to work fine ;)


I have been using this parallax theme but now wonder if this is SEO friendly. Does this only use 1 URL (only anchors?)

When it reduces your website to a single URL: A single page seriously restricts how search engines can see what you do, plus gives you just one URL that can appear in search results. Not good for discovery.

Any way to fix this?


Yes, if you don’t like “one-page” version, you can use it as “classic” version so each page will open as a separate link instead of scrolling to its content using hash ”#”. You can it in Theme Options -> Navigation
