Your mobile themes are really impressive.

I had a quick question though before buying: I want my users to be able to be able to select a light or dark theme based on their personal viewing preference. From the looks of things, BRAVE, HERO and your other themes seem structured quite similarly and I imagine any back-end options added to WordPress are roughly the same.

Is this the case? Or might I run into some issues with each post requiring different custom options to support each theme?

You are correct, the ‘under the hood’ stuff is nearly identical for all themes. You shouldn’t run into any issues on that front.

I do want to be clear though and say that whichever way you’ll be allowing users to switch between the themes would have to be your own creation, as front-end theme switching is not built into the themes themselves.

Cheers, and thanks for the kind words as well mate. It’s always good to know that someone appreciates the effort :)

Great. Yeah, I expected that part would require writing my own plugin. Just wanted to carefully gauge the work in advance. Appreciate your speedy reply!

Sure thing.

Hey man, I have bought your theme and i have set it up using the any mobile theme plugin. My website is www.bpme.com.au The problem i am having is that if i activate my normal theme, the menu button on the mobile theme does not drop down the menu on the mobile site when accessed from a phone. But when Brave is activated as the default theme, the menu bar works. How do i fix this so that the menu button works with brave not activated as the default desktop theme?

Hey there, there’s no need to leave a comment and send me an email as well :) We offer support via email, so future questions just there please.

For the menu question, check the documentation for an answer (under “menu not showing up?”)

And the ‘webapp’ notification should show up either way. Shoot me your WP logins and I’ll have a quick look.

Cheers mate.

Hey mate, i looked in the documentation and fixed it, fixing the menu also fixed the webapp notification for me somehow. Thanks very much!


Just bought your theme, nice looking and perfect for our needs.

Trying to install the theme, but I get an error code: the theme is missing the format template style.css. What to do?


Glad you like it :)

I think you’re probably trying to upload the entire package. Upload the Brave.zip file only.


Absolutely fantastic theme, I love it. There is nothing unnecessary in it. Simple, biiutiful. Checked it on samsung galaxy sIII iphone 4s different pc’s, even works on my TV. Recommend it. The best theme from this developer, to my mind, because the menu is most comfortable. Google likes my website too ;-)

What a wonderful testimonial to cap off the year with. Thank you! :)

Hello, Looks great! Can it also have a regular horizontal menu instead of a menu button?

Hi there, glad you like it. Brave just has the drop-down menu.


Your theme looks great but thought that I’d ask the following question first before buying it.

Is it possible when posting a link to a page with a video to show a screenshot of that video? For example, when posting a link to you video example page (http://www.bonfirethemes.com/_brave/2013/03/11/quickly-and-easily-embed-videos-maps-etc/) it shows a picture of a lion, which is an emoticon of a comment and not a pic of the video.

Not sure if that made sense.


Hi there, thanks for the interest.

Automatically extracting a screengrab from a video isn’t built into the theme.



This is a great them and I would like to use it as mobile theme on my website, which is built on Genesis framework. So can you let me know if it is compatible with Genesis framework?


Hi there. What your desktop theme is built with doesn’t matter really, Brave just calls the information from your database (post titles, post content etc.), not your desktop theme.


Hello, I just purchased your theme and first of all, congratulation for your work. Unfortunately I just noticed that this theme hasn’t been updated since 2013. Is this theme still updated when needed or is it an gived up project? I can see that some of the features are totally outdated (like the define WPLANG for exemple), I fear that future Wordpress update will make this theme unusable, is it a legitimate worry? Best regards,

Hi there. The theme will continue to work with future versions of WP. If some new version of WP does away with some function or the like, then it’ll be updated accordingly.
