I have little problem with this template. When I import data to my wordpress, I have error in import data: “Error: error (0)”.

Hi, can you provide your wordpress dashboard credentials and site url to our email artstudioworks@gmail.com we will try to import and check what is wrong.

Can night mode or darker pages be added to this theme? A regular blog post would be great also.

Hi, there is no light/dark mode option, but you can set background color for your page, change header colors, footer colors, etc.

Hello. The “Apply Coupon” button is not working in Brookside. I switched to other theme and it worked perfectly. Is this the issue you’ve known and are currently working on?


There is an issue with “coupon code” in the theme and we working on this. Wait for theme update within 2-3 days.

Thank you.

Thank you

Is it possible to directly set up Google Analytics on Brookside theme (header.php)?

If you use child theme you can do it in functions.php. Do you use child theme? Otherwise use plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/googleanalytics/

Hi, I’m currently using your Brookside on my website. A couple of days ago, my site for smart phone page is not working when I tried to back former page. It looks like back bottom disappears…

Could you please fix my website??

How can we reproduce your issue?

Hello, what is the map at the end of the posts for? Do you consider adding dark mode? Thank you


It’s simple image with ability to add markers with absolute top:left position. We don’t consider to add dark mode.

Hi, there! How to reorder the slides on the main page?

I managed on my own. Thank you anyway! for those in need: home (or page) > edit page > in the right of the page you’ll see the settings of the page > go to “slider” > “select posts to show” > click on it and place them in the order you want > save.

Hi, is it possible to make the “about me” image square vs a circle? Also, instead of having the posts zigzag (first post image on left/header on right, post underneath image on right/header on left) is it possible to have all images be on the left, then image on right?


1. It is possible to make image from about me section square. 2. It’s possible to show all images from posts layout at left, but not possible all images at the right.

For mobile view – the header menu disappears when scrolling down until you scroll back to the top. Is it possible to have it appear when the user scrolls upwards (the menu will show)?


With some custom css code it’s possible to make header on mobile sticky.


I’m currently really busy creating my website with this theme. So far I really like all the options. I got however two questions:

1) Is it possible to change the color when people are succesfully added to the subscribers list? Also what does the subscribers list do? Do registered people receive an email when a new post is uploaded? (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nGfx4zRSW2QvdJazfxAv7T5QrTDXEN9g/view?usp=sharing)

2) How do I add this section on my website? I found it on the demo site but can’t really find a way to add it to my website. ( https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QMD4YXZpSXY4B0DGE3-F8IleDO1mDYZO/view?usp=sharing )

Thank you for your help!


1. To change colors add the following css code and edit it to your needs
.subscribe-notice.success {
    border-color: #3fa864;
    background-color: #d1ffe1;
    color: #444b4d;

2. What section do you mean? We can’t get access with provided link.


Thank you for the help so far.

Question 2 was about the second slideshow on your main theme, I put a black line around it. Fingers crossed the link works now: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C2HuJcT19Cfai6WxdGvKGoSmcCxjw48m/view?usp=sharing


I am very sorry fornthe late response. To add this section go to edit page and add “Post slider” block.

Is it possible to allow html in the excerpts? Thanks in advance for your reply.


It’s not possible. There is no simple way for this, only code changes or rewrite functions. Do you use child theme? Can you provide site URL?

Hi, thanks for the fast response.

I tried to rewrite functions.php in the child-theme, but actually with no success;

function lt_html_excerpt($text) { // Fakes an excerpt if needed global $post; if ( ’’ == $text ) { $text = get_the_content(’’); $text = apply_filters(‘the_content’, $text); $text = str_replace(’\]\]\>’, ‘]]>’, $text); $text = strip_tags($text,’‘); $excerpt_length = 55; $words = explode(’ ’, $text, $excerpt_length + 1); if (count($words)> $excerpt_length) { array_pop($words); array_push($words, ‘[...]’); $text = implode(’ ’, $words); } } return $text; } remove_filter(‘get_the_excerpt’, ‘wp_trim_excerpt’); add_filter(‘get_the_excerpt’, ‘lt_html_excerpt’);

“Hi Love your theme! Great work!

I just have a quick question. I imported the data and I’m trying to put up the “Streamlined” theme. However, I’m unable to add the 5 article blocks like in your demo. How can I do this?”

my site is evemartel.com


Thanks for the reply. It doesn’t seem to work. Am I using the proper block? The Posts Carousel under the Brookside elements?”

Can you provide the screenshot what block you want to add? Also, if you provide wordpress dashboard credentials to our email artstudioworks@gmail.com we can help you to do it like on our demo.

Please check! Go to edit page and check how we did it.

Every time I try to install Brookside elements for the theme to work it says that the plugin does not have a valid header. How do I fix this issue?


Please provide us with wordpress dashboard credentials(login/pass&URL) to our email artstudioworks@gmail.com

Hi, I would like to ask how can I change the size of the featured image shown in the post. Apparently the featured image is taking up around 80% of the width on the page, making the content of the post being pushed far down. My featured image is in the ratio of 1:1 with dimension of 400px*400px. Can provide url if needed. Thanks

Also I cannot change the header color of the post pages

If you want to show original image size, please add the following css code to additional css option in the customizer
.single .wide-image .post-img img {
    width: auto;
.single .wide-image .post-img {

Regarding issue with header background on the single post page, please contact us through artstudioworks@gmail.com, we will provide hot fix for this.

hello, what should I do if I don’t want my header to shrink when scrolling? also, what should I do if I want to resize my image in the post? For example, when I add a 1:1 image into the post, the image will be taking up the full width of the page, resulting in lots of space occupied by the image.


1. Disable Fixed header option in the customizer -> theme options -> header

2. What image post you mean, on the single post view? What do you want to do? Do you want to not strech it? Provide url.

P.S. to get support you need to use account which you used to purchase theme.

Good day! Thinking of buying this theme. Can you tell if it is possible to install and use Elementor plugin with this theme?


Yes it’s possible, theme is compatible but theme not integarted with elementor.

Hi, does anyone know how to set a static homepage for this theme? I can’t find a setting for this anywhere… Help!

We need to test it online. Check if you have published page.

Hi! Just installed the theme. Editing my slider, but it seems like I can only add the last couple of posts to it. Am I missing something? Hope you can help me out. Thanks!

What do you mean?

That’s the notificatiin I get when I add tgis code to CSS Extra

Be sure that you have only css code in the additional css option field. It seems that you have some html.

Hi, really liked the theme, but my website is in Arabic, is this theme compatible with Arabic websites? because in Arabic we write from right to left not like in English.  And Also, in Arabic themes, usually everything goes from right to left.  I hope you get my point. 


We added support RTL. IF you have any issue with it we will fix it immediately.

Hi, How can I delete facebook and instagram icons on header of Masonry2 (Blog layout)? I can not delete these default icons.
