Hi, I’m interested in your template, it looks exactly what I’m looking for. But I live in Italy, and I need it for an Italian Mechanic Workshop. So, after I bought the template, can I translate it to italian by myself or there’s someother way to do it? Otherwise I just can’t do it?

Thank you very much.

Hey ProteusThemes.

I really enjoy this theme, but there is one thing I want to ask.

Is there a way to make the main menu in a fixed position, instead of scrolling down with you?

Thank you in advance


This feature is coming with the next update in 1-2 weeks, ok?


How do I add the the “get free repair quote” on the homepage.

Thank you


This is the contact form 7 shortcode in the regular text widget.

Hi there,

We are interested in this theme for a mechanics franchise. Is this theme compatible with Multisite?



Yes, we are running all our demos on multisite and develop locally on WP multisite!

Hello, is it possible (and allowed) to Remove the Copyright in the footer?

Yes, sure, when you buy the theme you can remove it simply in the wp admin.

hi, can you use parallax menus in this theme? I’d like to create one-page parallax landing page using your theme, I know it is possible but will it be complex implementing it to your setup. Thank you.


Carpress does not have parallax features, if you want to implement it, you are on your own or the Codeable team can do this for you: http://codeable.7eer.net/c/92141/132845/2670


Thanks for a great job!

How do I create a sidebar that is exactly the same as the one on the “our services”? I need create one more on my information!

Grateful for quick response


You create a new menu, then use the menu widget and put it to services sidebar.

Very nice theme indeed. I just have a couple of questions.

1. Are there any more shortcodes available than what is shown in “Features of the theme” page? I am looking for tabs in particular, and pretty much every theme has this – it is also included in a Bootstrap code.

2. Is there a “portfolio” type of post enabled in this theme, or there is only a default WP gallery function?



1. no, carpress does not come with tabs out of the box. But if you install this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcodes-ultimate/ you get practically every possible shortcode.

2. There is only default WP gallery function.

Thanks for the straight answer, I really like your theme and considering to buy it. Cheers.

Great looking theme! I can’t for the life of me find out where to change the main logo. I could replace the logo image via ftp but am afraid that future theme updates will overwrite that. Thanks in advance for the help!


Go to appearance > customize > images. Lots of other settings are there too.

great! Thanks, so much for the wonderful support. Also, how do I change the phone number that appears in the header on mobile devices?

Also in the customizer.


We would like to use the services widget feature on our inner pages, is there any way we can do this?

Yes, that is true. For example I found this one now (haven’t tested though), you can give it a try: https://wordpress.org/plugins/widgets-on-pages/

Cheers, we installed it and it did the job but it only worked correctly if we used it on a page with no sidebar?

Please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com/ and include the URL to your website, so we can take a look and solve this.

Gallery and Service Question: I cannot get the gallery i created to show on the home page widget. I also cannot change the top menu “our Services” link to my own, when i click it the link redirects to the promethius demo. Help please. thanks

Hi, please write to http://support.proteusthemes.com and we will help you setup your site just as our demo. Here is also video tutorial for this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJioZAdu_TM


How do i add like the dummy logo above the footer. I can’t find the widget for that.

Thank you


It is a text widget with images in it as HTML. Please write to our support at http://support.proteusthemes.com if you need help with this.


one more question. How to choose a specific gallery to appear in the front page widget.

Thank you

Hi, the latest galleries widget shows latest galleries as they were added. The code should be customized to show just one specific gallery, if you need help there, our partner for customization Codeable can help: http://codeable.7eer.net/c/92141/132845/2670

I’m testing this theme on a subdomain but this is the error I’m getting. It’s a fresh install. Any ideas on what might be the issue? It happens when I try to update the theme options.

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home3/adams123/public_html/newsite/wp-content/themes/carpress/bower_components/option-tree/includes/ot-settings-api.php on line 662

Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home3/adams123/public_html/newsite/wp-content/themes/carpress/bower_components/option-tree/includes/ot-settings-api.php:662) in /home3/adams123/public_html/newsite/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1121

OK, i figured it out. It was WP-Cache Plugin. That plugin always gives me issues.


We suggest using W3 total cache plugin, we use it without troubles.

In the widget “homepage above Google Maps” there are three sections that I cannot seem to find to be able to edit. I can add a new TEXT area and customize it, but the existing three sections seems to elude me. Can you help.

hehehe solved!

Excellent. For next questions please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com/ and include the URL to your website.

Just a note to say thanks guys for the excellent support. Although this theme is perfect for car garages and mechanics, we actually used it for something completely different…very flexible.

Thanks guys

Thank you for these nice words! :)

Hi, Great work m8, i bought your theme few days ago and made a site out of it. got some questions, 1. the navigation bar is not stable with explorer, and even others. some times it looks like working with chrome, 2. how do i add the map in there? i managed to translate some how. you can visit autotechbu.com and see please. its annoying with the nevi bar


1. is a bug which will be fixed in the next update the next week. For now you can fix it if you put this CSS in the appearance > theme options > custom CSS:

.navbar-fixed-top.attached {
top: 0 !important;

2. where would you like to add a map, I see it already on the front page?

For next questions please open a ticket on http://support.proteusthemes.com/ and include the URL to your website.

Hi, this theme is really great. Thank you! just wondering if you have a dummy conent for all the pages you have on your demo.

Yes, can be found in the extras/ folder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJioZAdu_TM

I’m sure that you can change all colors? Change language?

Theme Customizer Questions: Can you change colors? Can you change language? Can you use “Catalog mode only”? – I can code it all myself, just wanna see if i save time. Do you support any forum plugin or shall i code that myself?


All the main colors can be changed in the customizer. Also you can change the language, you have to translate the POT file which comes with the theme.

We don’t support forum plugins here.
