A couple of questions …

What is the optimal image size for the slider? It appears to scale images automatically.

Can the Slider text, headline and copy be resized or changed? Can you tell me where this style setting is?

I will be happy to submit a ticket, but since this is a great way for everyone to learn how to do this … I thought it appropriate to post here.

Wonderful theme BTW … I am finding it easy to work with and modify overall. I will be happy to leave you a good review with the project is completed. Cheers!

The optimal images for the slider are 1920×592 px. The instructions and video tutorial are coming soon for that.

The slider text headline etc. can be changed either with custom CSS in theme option or there is that wonderful plugin we suggest to use: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-google-fonts/

Hello, I cant get the slider to change speed, I need to slow it down but it wont respond to ‘any’ numeral input. Could you please send me a fix or a work around please. Many kind thanks. Ian.

Hi, please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com and we will help you.

Is there any way to zoom the map on the contact page? Also, is there any way to change the typography on the slider?

1. yes, in the theme customizer 2. yes, with free wp plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-google-fonts/

I’m interested in buying this theme for my site, but I want a video in the top slider area. Is it possible to load a looped video in the slider?



For now it is not possible by default. If there is stronger demand for this feature we will add it. Or you can contact us to http://support.proteusthemes.com and we can make an estimate for that customization just for you.

How can i edit this template from the original rather than having to start again?

index.html is the documentation file, open it with your browser – chome, firefox, ie …


How do you slow down the slider speed on the home page?


Hi, if you mean how long one slide is displayed: in customizer, section front page.

If you mean the speed of the transition – there is no option in admin for that as the slides are changed using CSS.

Please ask next qustions on support.proteusthemes.com

Can fonts be easily changed from administration ( without manual code edits) ?

Hi there!

I am thinking of buying this theme for a client. The only thing I would like to know: is it possible to change (or delete) the ‘make an appointment’ button in the header.


Yes, that is possible in the wp-admin.


awesome theme!! Keep up the good work. Small thing. I just bought it and the downloaded file is version 1.3.. when are you uploading 1.4 ?

cheers :-)


The update has just been approved, download again the 1.4!

Thank you for the rating! :)

I can not the Slider of the start menu is running me as they do in the demo?

Hi, please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com and give me the URL to your site so I can take a look.

hi I would like to buy this theme – can I replace the hours box with a coupon or image? or is it only text?



Yes, possible. The opening times is a widget, you can place a text widget there with the image as HTML tag…

also, would like to know if I can add a quote box instead of the hours?

I haven’t tested that, but it should work as well, since both are WP widgets.

Not compatible with woocommerce-catalog-visibility-options

Hi, is there an option to remove “Carpress Theme by ProteusThemes” from the footer? Thanks.

Sure, in the theme options.

any idea why the image slider and map disappeared from the mobile version?

Hi, please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com and we will take a look, please include the URL to site as well.

[please delete this]


is it possible to have the shop in fullwith (no filters)? Is it also possible to have the latest products on the homepage (instead of for ex. the services)?

In general, how is the structure of the theme? Which are widget areas? Does it have a kind of a site builder implemented? or is it based on fixed templates?

thank you very much


No, for it is not possible to have fullwidth filters. But it is possible to have latest products on the homepage, not visually the same as the services, but as the list.

The front page is entirely made of widgets, no site builder implemented.

There are 9 page templates available (shop, contact, appointment, 3 for front page etc.)

Hello, I bought this theme for my client and I have a small question for you. Is this how the homepage is supposed to look like or is it supposed to look like the homepage from the Live Demo? Did I install it incorrectly? If so, can you tell me the steps?

Never mind got it. I found the instructions!

Hello there, i just installed the theme with the “hairpress video tutorial” My problem is that i cant see a menu, and the pictures are faint. + My “widgets”/buttons or w/e wont work :S http://www.auto-line.hu/

Images with theme come blurred, because are licensed.

You should set the menu in the appearance > menus to assign to right position. Please open a ticket: http://support.proteusthemes.com

thank you for your feedback!

Just wondering if anyone other than myself has run into any problems when trying to activate the theme for the first time? I get the following error message on a white blank page…

Warning: require_once(/home/mydomain/public_html/wp-content/themes/carpress/bower_components/TGM-Plugin-Activation/tgm-plugin-activation/tgm-plugin-activation.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mydomain/public_html/wp-content/themes/carpress/inc/tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 18

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ’/home/mydomain/public_html/wp-content/themes/carpress/bower_components/TGM-Plugin-Activation/tgm-plugin-activation/tgm-plugin-activation.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/mydomain/public_html/wp-content/themes/carpress/inc/tgm-plugin-activation.php on line 18

In the code above, I’ve replaced my actual directory name with “mydomain”. Other than that change, the message above is what I get when I activate the carpress theme.

Any ideas?
