Hello liviu_cerchez I’d like to see the RTL demo before I buy this theme please

Hi, thank you for your interest – the demo is available only in LTR, so I can’t provide a preview for the RTL. It is supported and many have used it so far with no problem. I hope this helps.

Hi, I purchased your theme. Firstly I installed “castilo.zip” theme file. Then I installed content.xml. Finally I installed “podcast-helper.zip” plugin file. There are wrong things. “Home Template” is not appear on sidebar. And my home page is not like your’s demo. I can’t see any setting about page, post or episode. Could you help me please?

My website: kuranvehadisdinle.com

Ok I solved the problem. It was my carelessness. Your theme is very nice. Thanks.

Hi, thank you for your purchase and I’m glad you figure things out – let me know if you have other concerns/questions via the Support tab and I’ll do my best to help.

Hi, I want to change language two words on your theme.

“search” on search widget and “share it” on episode post

I translate with “poedit” program. But these words are not see. Could you please tell me where these words and how can ı chanfe them?

Thank you very much for informations. I prefer to get it done without installing the plugin.

Hi, I have another question. I don’t want the word “episode” in the link structure. How can I remove it?


Also, although I set the link structure as ”/% category% /% postname% /” in “Permanent Links” section, it does not apply it.

Can you help with this?

Hi, I would not recommend changing the permalink structure for episodes as this is a unique WordPress feature that allow quick identification within the internal rewrite system. You can remove the slug with various “hacks” or a rewrite plugin, but again, I would avoid such changes. Here’s a solution you might find useful: https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/204210 Please use the Support tab if you have further concerns or questions.

Aside from the demo, do you have additional examples/screenshots of how your theme can also look like, e.g. with a different banner size?

Hi, thank you for your interest – I don’t have any other screenshots as the live preview showcases the theme very well. If you want to see something specific from the backend please send me a Support message and I’ll do my best to help.

I just purchased your theme. I just wanted to let you know that you may need to update your theme documentation in regards to importing the Demo Data. In my case this was actually located under Tools > Import > Import Demo Data. Your documentation says it’s located under Appearance > Import Demo Data which was not the case on my end. Thank you.

Hi, thank you for your purchase and for kindly letting me know about this inconsistency. Currently, the online version displays the correct information, so please check that out until I fix the offline version: https://docs.liviucerchez.com/castilo/#setup-content (I fixed it meanwhile) Thank you!

Is it possible to remove the sidebar in the “Episodes” page?

Hi, the sidebar area is controlled via the Appearance > Widgets section, so you’ll need to remove all the widgets in order to have a full width layout on the Episodes page. Hope this helps and let me know if you have further questions via the Support channel.

Thank you, I sent you a message via Support.

Thank you, I will continue to offer help via the Support channel.

Is there click n drag page builder for this? Is there any type of return window if theme isn’t a fit? How well does it work with 3rd party plugins?

Hi, thank you for your interest – the theme preview is using the default WordPress block editor (which has drag and drop capabilities), but any third party should work as well (for regular pages and posts, not static page templates). I hope this helps.

How do i post the same image on social media as the one in the podcast episode?

Hi, please find my reply a few hours ago to your private support message via your email sste*rup(at)gmail.com – I will post it here so that others may benefit from it:

This is not a specific theme issue, please read this article on how to fix the social media thumbnail issue: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-facebook-incorrect-thumbnail-issue-in-wordpress

I hope this helps.

Loving this theme. And for the most part it’s fairly easy to navigate. Question… I created my own web font, and installed it in the fonts folder within the theme folder…. However I see it is not working on the Castillo theme. What step am I missing in efforts to utilize the web font of my choice?

Hi, thank you for your purchase and kind words. I suggest you don’t modify the core theme in any way (even if it’s just additions) as updates will remove all your customizations. There are specialized plugins for typography, like https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-fonts/, which I suggest using (after which you need to tweak some CSS to set the font). I hope this helps and please use the Support channel for further questions or concerns.

Interested in purchasing a second time. It there a way I can use Spotify as music sample in Episodes, rather than an mp3 upload?

This section is more of a pre-sale questions section, please understand I will gladly answer further questions via the Support channel. There is no additional cost for support questions if you purchased the theme and have a valid support license. I haven’t received any message from you so far, so feel free to contact me. Thanks for understanding.

Actually you have received message from me but told me I’d have to pay an additional $28 because my support expired on both license. I have purchased two license and was about to purchase a third but need this question answered prior to purchase.

I’m sorry, I see it now and I’ve answered it – yes, I ask for a support extension (not for a specific cost, as I don’t set the support prices) because I think it’s fair as I need to maintain the theme and offer support for questions/concerns/issues. The initial purchase includes a free 6 months support license and yours expired more than a half a year ago. Once you make a new purchase or extend your existing support license I’ll do my best to help, as replacing the default player with a custom embed is possible, as I’ve already answered in a previous message. Thank you for understanding.

Hello. Is it possible to add content to the home page, besides the pre-populated stuff?

Hi, indeed you can add additional content to a page using the Home template via the main editor field. Please get in touch with me via the Support channel for any other questions or concerns.

By any chance was this made with elementor?

Hi, I see no reason why you can’t use Elementor as a page builder with the theme for regular pages (so most of them except the Home and Episodes static templates). Thank you again for your kind feedback and interest.

Exactly. Cant edit the homepage with elementor. However, I’ll keep this one bookmarked. Thanks again for your time.

Thank you, you are most welcome.

First of all, I love the theme! It’s been tremendously easy to use. I’m trying to update the RSS feed to Anchor, and I can’t seem to find where to do that. Is it the same as running the RSS importer? Anchor extracted all the episodes from the site, I just want to update the RSS link within this site, where do I do that?

In other words, I’m wanting to change where my podcast is hosted. On Anchor it says the follow:

In order to switch to Anchor for hosting, you’ll need to redirect your RSS feed. Copy your Anchor RSS feed and paste it into your current host’s settings. Where are these settings that I would change this at? Thank you!

Hi, please get in touch with me via the Support channel and I’ll do my best to help. Thank you!

Hi am wondering how many podcast RSS feeds you can import is it only one? or can we have more then one?

Hi, thank you for your interest – you can import as many external RSS feeds as you like, no restriction there. Please get in touch with me via the Support channel for more specific details and I’ll do my best to help. Thank you!

Hi, Thanks for the great theme! I’ve uploaded my logo at Site Identity and wanted to remove it afterwards, but it keeps showing. Do you know how I can remove it? Clearing cache/cookies won’t help. Thanks for your response!

Hi, thank you for your kind words and purchase – please get in touch with me via the Support channel and I’ll do my best to help with any such technical issues (you can also provide access details to your site).

Is there an easy way to edit the “Latest Episode” text in the header and the “Browse Episodes” text on the main page? Thanks

Hi, please use a single contact method to receive a faster reply. I replied to your previous private message, so use that to continue to receive Support. Thank you!

Hi, I am planning to use Transistor.fm as my podcasting platform. How hard is to embed their player? Also, I need to change the button color to red, is that easy to do? Thanks in advance!

Hi, thank you for your interest – the theme can embed any external podcast player as there is an option to override the default player with a custom embed for a specific episode. Also, there is an option to control the accent color (that will adjust the buttons fill color). I hope this helps.
