I’d like to purchase this theme. This would save me a lot of time fixing the css and theming.

Only 2 questions:

+ I understand that the theme is provided as a drupal installation, can I have an option to only install the theme itself?

+ Can you send me the documentation so that I know whether I can use this theme for my project?

+ Would it be easy to fix/modify the theme such as adding the search box right after the topleft icons, fixing the top region…?


1. Yes there is a standalone version of the theme as well for existing sites.

2. I dont see why not, use the following form to email us: http://themeforest.net/user/refaktor#from

3. Those are simple enough modifications that I don’t think would cause you any trouble. We have a dedicated support forum (http://refaktorthemes.com/support) where customers get advice for things like this.

Are the colors of the blocks configurable? Also can the size and width of the page and color blocks be made smaller?


Yes anything about the theme can be customized, usually just with a bit of CSS. We have a dedicated customer support forum (http://refaktorthemes.com/support) where customers can get help with minor customizations like the ones you describe.

Great, thanks!

You’re welcome, let me know if you have any more questions I can answer.

i want to use this template in asp.net can i use it

I’m sorry I really don’t know the answer to that question.

I am using your drupal theme and mostly use wordpress . However, your theme rocks and so I have to get familiar with Drupal. Can you advise on keeping the side arrow to sub menu always “on”—it disappears on the first level of the parent menu.


Thank you for your purchase and for the kind words!

Did the slider can add links to the image?The big slider cant click to the content which I want to show to the vistor.I feel very sad…

Looks like your comment double posted, see my response to your other comment.

The captions (the blocks of text) fully support HTML which you can add links to. You could do the following as a caption:

<a href="http://linkhere.com">Click for more</a>

If you want to expand the functionality to the images that would be a bit of a modification but not an overly difficult one. Go ahead and register for our forum at http://refaktorthemes.com/support and reply here with your username for posting access. If you want to be able to do links on the images make a post and we will help you.

For some reason I can’t get this theme to install on Wordpress. I keep getting this error “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” Any help would be great.

That’s because Blocks is a Drupal theme, not a WordPress theme. If you’re not interested in using Drupal you’re going to want to contact Envato support to see if there’s anything they can do for you in terms of a refund as that is out of our control. If you’re interested in using Drupal sign up for our support forum (http://refaktorthemes.com/support) and reply with your username for posting access.

Hi, this theme is truly awesome!

I’d like to know if it’s possible to change the theme font type and font size

Thanks! Ciao Adriano

Another question if you don’t mind: int he theme description you say there are “Tabs”, but I can’t see them on the demo website. Are tabs a feature of this theme? Thanks Adriano

See the “tabbed widget” on our blog page: http://refaktorthemes.com/blocks-demo/blog

Thanks, I’ve purchased your theme right now!

I’m probably going to buy this wonderful theme. I just have to ask one question: Drupal has a native module called Books which consists also in a block containing a hierarchycal menu (like a real book index but with a precise hierarchy) of the book (basically a set of pages) you have created. I wonder if the drop down menu of this theme can be set using book menu as source.

Yes we do plan on having a D8 version ready around the time it is released. Many people are probably going to continue using 7 for a while but we want to support both and will essentially have two versions/full install packages for both D7 and D8.

Perfect; and thanks for the fast reply. I’ll complete the order in the next days

You’re welcome, let me know if you have any more questions I would be happy to answer them for you!

Hi, I want to buy this theme. Just one question, how is it when used with Ubercart? I would like to use it on our online store.

I registered already, my username is AMPilares23. what is the posting access? I think I can’t reply to the posts right now..

Yes we manually verify purchases before we give posting access. I’ve done that now and you now have posting access. You can discuss the 2.0 release and add your feature requests here: http://refaktorthemes.com/support/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=281

Ok thanks!


it looks I can’t create topics on the support forum (username Adriano72), so i’m going to ask you here.

If I add an image that is not wide as the blog width, the system puts a lot of white space between the image bottom and the beginning of text. See here: http://www.wccmtest.org/node/36

Ho could it be fixed? thanks Ciao Adriano

I just gave you access so please post your question in the forum and we will help troubleshoot with you there. Thanks.


Great thank you we will respond shortly.


This theme looks awesome, I was just wondering if it would work with organic groups module? Thanks!

The theme does actually have a node template specifically for the organic groups module. One of our customers was having a slight layout issue with it so we helped him with a custom template and decided to include it in the theme for everyone to use.

Hi! I regisgtered the support forum but could not figure out to get permission for forum posting. My username is same here and there.

I was going to ask you that even though I change display settings for content type “article” to show the image(s) in full view, It only shows the “body”.

I really did not like the way of this support. ? am log out many times without no reason. now after you have give me thje permission, I hd to login again but password did not work. system kick me out.

Near my username, system indicates that I have purchased this template, so why it getting more complicate to get support ?

The forum is how we prefer to handle support, the item comments are not an efficient place to do it. I’m sorry you’re having issues with the forum but we’ll help you get it sorted out, hundreds of customers use the forum successfully.

Go ahead and get in touch with us via email: http://themeforest.net/user/refaktor/#from I am going to reset your password and I will email it to you once you get in touch with us.

It looks like you managed to log in, I will go answer your thread now. Thanks!


my partner bought this theme under another account. I’m doing the web stuff.

I’m facing a problem regarding SEO fields. I installed “Metatag” module that allows me to define my title, description, ... for any page, node, .... The problem is that when I make changes for the homepage, they are not taken into consideration, the template’s setting override my information, even if I let your SEO fields empty. “Metatag” module works fine with my other pages, but only the frontpage won’t work.

Everything works fine when I switch back to another theme.

It also looks like your theme’s SEO settings are duplicated on all pages, so I can’t have a different information on each page.

What could I do to solve my problem ? I tried to look in the theme’s files, but I don’t really want to alter the theme’s core. I tried to create a basic page, and make it use the “page—front.tpl.php” template, promote it to homepage, but it creates me a whole new page with a separated menu item…




I’m glad you brought that up because we are actually completely removing those options in the next update and leaving SEO up to the great modules that are available.

However, for support with your issues please sign up for our support forum as that is our preferred way of handling support.

You sir. Made me fall of my seat. Congrats amazing theme!

Why thank you!

Will be buying soon ..

Hi i would like to purchase your theme but i would like to ask a couple of things. - Do you make invoice for companies? - When drupal 8 is released are you going to update the theme to support it? - Will I be able to add a language bar? - Can i sort the gallery with folders like albums? and will the user be able to see them as a slideshow when the photos are opened in fullscreen?

That’s all i need to know thank you in advance!

Hello there, thanks for getting in touch.

1. Seeing as you are purchasing the item from ThemeForest (owned by Envato) they are the ones that would have to provide that for you. However at this time I don’t believe they provide invoices, but I could be wrong.

2. Yes this is one of our themes that we will be making a Drupal 8 version right around the time or shortly after the stable version of 8 is released.

3. You can add anything you like, although I know for a fact a few customers have added something like that and we helped one or two in our forums with that.

4. That is not something the theme supports natively but I’m sure with a photo gallery module you could do something like that.

Hi there Great looking theme. Do you know if it works well with Panopoly ? also is it possible to update the version of foundation ? Thanks
