Thanks I tried installing on another server and it was seamless and I finally saw the theme plugin and activated it and we are all good now. However that other server still have issues . I will contact my client to change plans to a higher.

Well done. Great job.

Thanks for the support so far

You are welcome! I’m glad I could help you!

Good day. When I am creating a post I do not see Display Location field on the post page. This means I cant create the featured header and content on the homepage on my blog. Please what could be responsible for me not seeing that option or how do I activate it to begin to display.

Also my blog is having a lot of connection timeout issues. I have disabled all the plugins and it is still the same. I installed the theme on 5.1.1 wordpress. I am been asked to update to 5.8.1. Should I update. Will that make a difference.

Below is my blog https://shineyoureye.com.ng/


1. From the theme documentation: “When you first install the theme you’ll see a popup on your dashboard from the theme asking you to install a number of plugins. Allow the theme to install these for you”. Did you do it?

2. Perhaps you have a weak hosting or it is somehow not configured that way. All my demos are located on a regular hosting and do not have such problems. The theme has nothing to do with it. You can upgrade to the latest version of Wordpress, but since Gutenberg blocks were very often redone in them, they will be displayed incorrectly. Otherwise, there should be no problems.

Thanks for the response. Yes I installed the plugins. In troubleshooting why the site was showing error in connection and other errors I disabled the plugins. I will try activate again.

I did not see the Display location option on the post editor to enable me make the post a featured post on the home page. What did I not do or configure right. The home page is still blank. Even when I chose magazine style for the home page content.

The “Catarina Theme” plugin must be activated, it adds a checkbox (Display location option), see screenshot – https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bzHyXdih2159WqRGfskW331GWj3c11xo/view?usp=sharing.

In addition, read the section “Set Up Your Homepage > To set up magazine style homepage” in the documentation for the theme and do everything that is written there to bring other entries (from selected categories) to the main page.


I would like to know how to change the “read more” after each article to “Lire la suite” in French.


Change lines 428 and 447 in the file melina\inc\template-tags.php.


I am trying to install on 5.5.3 version and not below error message for your reference.

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme installation failed.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks, Thiyagu


Read in the theme documentation paragraph “Theme Installation” or information on the support page – https://themeforest.net/item/catarina-personal-blog-magazine-wordpress-theme/22601552/support

Also I am trying to install this version of the theme:


Where do I customize the theme to have a similar homepage layout?

1. Customizer > Featured Area Settings > Posts Grid.

2. Customizer > Content Area Settings > Content Layout > Two-column grid layout.

Hi. I have installed the theme and the plugin Wp-Instagram-Widget has been discontinued (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-instagram-widget/). Since the theme relies on this widget, will you be providing an update?

Hi! Unfortunately, the author of the plugin stopped supporting it. I did not find a similar alternative to it. Therefore, the theme is delivered without the ability to display photos from Instagram. All references to this feature are removed from the theme description page and its preview. It remains only in the documentation, as some of the older versions of this plugin work.

how can I setup my website holidayweekly.pk to home1 style in few clicks

Can you send me the SCSS bundle of this theme :)

Yes, email me via the form on my profile page – https://themeforest.net/user/ukathemes.

Dropped you an email. Thanks for your works.


Hello, does the template contain Saas?


No, but if you need, I can provide.

Ok thanks, will contact you later after purchasing the template.

Hi! Theme is clean and nice for the price.

Are you planning Gutenberg optimization in the future updates?


“Are you planning Gutenberg optimization in the future updates?” – At the moment, there are no plans for this.

1. The theme does not affect the output of this information. You can try either some other sharing plugin or a third-party plugin to add social meta tags.

2. You can try to use Yoast SEO plugin.

Thanls for answers!

Where exactly should i insert the Yoast code for breadcrumb navigation?

Thanks in advanace!

I have not worked with this plugin, but you can try to paste code into a file header.php (in the end of file).

Hi, I would like to buy the theme and would like to know if I can maintain the data and information without knowledge of HTML and JavaScript? Is there a CMS system that makes maintenance easier for me?

Thanks for your answer.


Hi! Sorry for the long answer-was unavailable.

You can read more about WordPress And draw the appropriate conclusions for yourself – https://wordpress.org/support/article/first-steps-with-wordpress-b/

If you do not have difficulties with installing and configuring WordPress, then installing a theme for It will not cause problems. Additional knowledge will be needed if you want to change something in the theme.

Hi, can you give me size of logo fof theme?

Can i set it wider?

1. Open file \functions.php and change logo size in lines 55-56.

2. Add this code to your child-theme style.css file:

.custom-logo-link {
  height: 50px;
  width: 50px;

and change the size of the logo in this code to your own. In the functions.php file specify a size twice as large as in the child-theme style.css.

3. Activate child theme.

Thank you

How can I change the excerpt limit? Wordpress default is 55 words, but in this theme it is approx. 24 words… I need to increase it. Could not find an excerpt length for postcard anywhere. Thanks


For magazine page open folder template\template-parts\magazine. There you will find files that make up this page. You need to find lines like this:

echo mb_substr( $content, 0, 150 )

Here, 150 (or another digit) is the number of characters to output. Change it.

For category pages, archives, etc. are used files located in the folder: template\template-parts\loop. Change them in a similar way.

Oh yeah one more thing. Your theme does not support SVG files :( Not even with the SVG plugin. I have used what is suggested by wordpress but the theme wont accept it: add_action( ‘after_setup_theme’, ‘bodhi_svg_theme_support’, 11 ); function bodhi_svg_theme_support() {

remove_theme_support( 'custom-logo' );
add_theme_support( 'custom-logo', array(
    'flex-width'  => true,
    'flex-height' => true,
) );


Try to use “Safe SVG” plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/safe-svg/

This is the plugin I used. It did not work for the logo. It only works for other images.

The plugin works, but it does not know how to resize images, so you need to download logos with a size smaller than 48*48 pixels.


Can you give me the css to add a secondary menu below the main menu? I know how to create a new one with functions but I am missing the css part.



What do you mean by “secondary menu”?

Here is a quick sketch as sample. I want to make a second menu similar to the apple website. https://ufile.io/kzuw9

Improvements (сustomization) of the theme are not included in the cost of support – https://themeforest.net/page/item_support_policy

Hi! How can i use bigger logo? At the moment logo is too small and i can’t find right place where to change logo size settings.


1. Open file functions.php and change lines 55-56.

2. Open file style.css and change lines 2485-2486.

Hi, i want to know why i’ve got many errors on style.css file..?

Can you give a link to your website?



It looks like you or a third-party plugin have replaced the FontAwesome font link with your own. My theme uses only FontAwesome Brands, you have fully connected font.

If you haven’t done anything, try disabling third-party plugins and identifying which one does.

If you have changed this, you should include FontAwesome in addition to what is, not instead of the existing one.

I’m really unhappy.

The front-page.php isn’t working with your theme.

Theme uses the front-page.php to display the magazine page. If you want to use the front-page.php for your needs, turn on the display of the magazine page as it is written in the theme documentation and change the code of the front-page.php on your own.

Thanks for your help! It worked.

Is this theme fully compatible with WordPress 5.0? Can I update? ;)


The theme is not optimized for Gutenberg, so its blocks will not be displayed correctly. You can update, but you should use the old editor or use the classic editor in Gutenberg (not blocks).


Tell us what you think!

We'd like to ask you a few questions to help improve ThemeForest.
