Hi there

Great theme.

I am trying to install it as per the demo. In the instructions under “import Data” it says:

“Step 4 Click on the “Choose File” button and choose XML file, which is included in Cobalt Zip file, click “Upload file” and import.”

I cannot find the XML file anywhere, any pointers?


1. You can download the All files and documentation zipped file https://nimb.ws/Fjal2R

2. Extract the file.

3. The demo-data.xml can be found within the data folder.

I hope that helps.

Many thanks, all sorted, but I have hit another problem in trying to upload the mainslider:

“You must upload a .wie file generated by this plugin (help).”

Not being an expert I feel I am going to keep coming up against obstacles in installing and trying to make everything look like your demo/preview. Is there any change you can complete my install so it looks exactly like your demo/preview? I should be okay to edit it from there and am happy to pay for your help…


It seems you tried to import sample widgets, if so, you can open the widgets.wie file, copy the content and paste it to the textarea field of the Import Widgets section, for instance, https://nimb.ws/XHBwpl

I hope that helps.


If I update to the latest WordPress 6.0.2, my homepage only displays the first tile across each row. I have Cobalt v1.1.6.

After rolling back to WordPress 5.4.2, my tiles have all re-appeared.

Do you recommend updating the theme and if so is there an upgrade path to v1.1.8?


Bump … are these comments still monitored?

Hello I am looking to put a catalog (without caddy) how to do? Thanks

Hello I can’t replace the images that are in the home page of my Cobalt theme. It’s in the portfolios Thank you for your help

Hello Why the documentation does not work. only the index.html page works

Hello I don’t know how to put new images in the portfolio elements of the home page. In KITCHEN , NEER THE POOL, ROLLERCOASTER HIGH … Images, videos and image slides Thanks for your help

Hello I can’t find the Demo for the homepage. I bought and installed the cobalt theme but I can’t find the homepage templates


The demo content can be found in the “All files and documentation” package, extract the file, and you will see a folder named “Data”, you can use the WordPress Importer plugin to import the demo-data.xml file.

I hope that helps.

I really love this theme. And I applaud your quick responses to my questions! Thank you.

My pleasure, don’t hesitate to let me know here if you need any assistance.

Thank you.

Is there a way to add an image to the contact page instead of a map? We host concerts at various locations and use a PO box, so we don’t have a physical address. Right now the page is gray surrounding the contact form.

I tried using the featured image option, but no go.

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate all your help!

Please check your Inbox.

I hope that helps.

Thank you for your previous help. How do I disable the right sidebar on the product page?

I figured it out. I simply removed the side bar elements in the widget. Duh! Thanks anyway. I am sure you will hear from me again! :-)


You can adjust something at the Appearance > Theme Options page.

Honestly, Woocommerce isn’t ready yet, I added a CSS snippet to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS field and it fixed the button.

I hope that helps, let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello, no matter what I do, I cannot seem to add a background image like you have on the preview. I upload and image and nothing shows. I have used the customize theme and theme options. When I preview the page, it is not there and then when I go back to customize or theme options, my uploaded image isn’t there. Thanks!

I am using the Appearance/Theme Options. Nothing I change here sticks.


Could you share the URL? I will have a look into it shortly.

Thanks for the purchase.

it is hidden behind a maintenance plug in. Is there some way I can email you my login info privately?

Could you share the URL via this form privately?

Keep in mind that I offer free installation for a fresh copy of the WordPress website, if you have any problems while setting up the theme, just share the URL and the admin credentials via the form, I will set it up for free.


Hello, is there a way to have “tags” on portfolio pages? Now it only displays categories. I see that there is no “portfolio settings” in the backend: is it normal? Thank you.

Hello federicolukkini,

Yes, it’s normal, the portfolio has no tags.


Hello, I am experiencing something weird with “portfolio pages”: I’m adding new pages and they don’t get displayed on the HP. Inspecting the code looks like these new pages do not generate any thumbnails to be called in HP. How can I fix this? Thank you.

I’m not sure what you have done, did you set the featured images for these portfolio posts? if no luck and possible, share your Teamviewer info via this form privately, I will have a look into your problem shortly.


Hello, sorry to have bothered you, looks like some corrupted photos disrupted the generation of the thumbnail. I replaced them and now it seems to work fine. Thank you again, hope I do not bother you again…

I’m glad to know you found that, feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.


Hello, is there a way to limit the number of elements displayed on the HP (I’m currently using portfolio 1), let’s say 6, and consequently obtained paginated pages of the same amount of elements? Thank you for your support.


You will need to change the “Show Posts” number in the Pre Query box, please watch this video https://youtu.be/xAyhLK5jtRk

I hope that helps.

thank you

Hello, is there a way to change the “portfolio” permalink?


Yes, you can try this function, remember to update the permalinks at the Settings > Permalinks page.

I hope it works.

Thank you, again. It works.

I’m glad that helped, as always, feel free to let me know here if you need further assistance.

Hi, I have a problem to custumize my site, the documentation is not more clear for me.

I have selected the home 1 for my site:


and the portfolio is formatted vertically, is not correct.

In addiction there isn’t the video tutorial decribed into theme forest.

Can you help me with this questions?

Kind Regards



My apologies for the delayed reply, if you imported the demo content, you would see all demo pages.

In order to create the homepage 1, please follow up the below steps:

1. Create a new or edit an existing page.

2. Enter title and select Portfolio 1 from the Template dropdown (screenshot).

3. Save Changes.

After that, you will need to add the portfolios as you might know.

Keep in mind that I offer free installation for a fresh copy of the WordPress website, if you see any hard work while setting up the theme, just share your website URL and the wp-admin credentials via this form privately, I will set it up for you.



I have a problem with documentation, it’s not clear for me. I want to insert into the footer of myweb site the social icons and the copyright site but I don’t find how to set them.

Best regard



You will need to navigate to Appearance > Widgets, drag and drop the Cobalt Socials and the Custom HTML widgets to the Second sidebar area (see screenshot) and here is the HTML code I used for demo purpose, just change to your info.

I hope that helps, feel free to let me know if you have further questions.
