how do I change home page layout? On general settings there are only 3 options: Full Width, Right Sidebar and Left Sidebar. I don’t see grid and others.


To change the page with grid layout, choose Grid on the page template dropdown. Please click here for more detail.

Thanks. And how to change categories and archives into grid style?

For categories and other archive pages, the layouts are always in list format. If you need grid style you can create pages with grid template for each category.

Hello, I would like to know how to get the same homepage like you in the themeforest cover. Like for example the name of the different categories above the pictures and posts…

Thank you very much

Merci beaucoup !! Thanks very much !

Other question :D, How do you add google analytics ? thks

Login to Google Analytics and find the tracking code. Copy the code and paste it into Theme Options -> Footer -> Scripts

What is ideal featured image size?

ideal image size for featured image is 620×350 or higher


I would like to make a small change in the footer.


Here is a picture showing what I want.

Can you tell me how?

Thank you!

You need to change the width of the left and right footer.
Open footer.php and change "eight columns footer1" with "ten columns footer1"
and change "eight columns footer2" with "six columns footer2"


Thank you very much, they are always there when we need them.


We would like to extend the excerpt in the Post layout. We tried adding the following to the functions.php but it did not work:

// Changes the excerpt length to a custom value function custom_excerpt_length( $length ) { return 200; } add_filter( ‘excerpt_length’, ‘custom_excerpt_length’, 999 );

Is there somewhere in the theme code we can make this change?

to use the more tag and keep formatting, you need to replace this code:

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
with this:
<?php the_content(); ?>
in content.php, content-grid.php or content-category.php

Great! That fixed the formatting but the more tag is still not working. Could it be a conflict with the read more (+)? We tried with that option both enabled and disabled, no luck.

Oh sorry, that code only works in standard posts page. If you use page templates, this is the complete code:
<?php global $more; $more = 0; the_content(); ?>

Hi, I just noticed that in the mobile optimized version of the site, my photos are spilling outside of the content box. So when I resize my browser or visit my site on a mobile device, all the divs resize but my pictures don’t. Is there a proper way to be inserting photos so that they resize properly? Currently I am adding photos using Wordpress’ ‘Add Media’ button.

My site is


Hi, please add this css code:
.wp-caption {
    max-width: 100%;
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
    box-sizing: border-box;

Awesome theme, very flexible and attractive, with the kind of detailed documentation that ideally every theme should have. Thank you!

The only feature I could think to wish for, at this point, would be the ability to choose “Show Featured Image” for single posts on a post-by-post basis, rather than just as a site-wide theme option. Any plans to add this in future, by any chance?

Thanks. I will consider adding this feature in the future update

Hi, gawibowo, thanks for your reply. I am sure that “wish” of mine is probably not a high priority, but just thought I’d mention it … just in case it’s something fairly easy to do.

(Hiding the featured image and then adding the image in again as regular media seems to be the workaround for making a featured image on single post page able to click out to external site – that’s the main reason for asking.)

Again, my thanks for an excellent theme, documentation, support. The more time I spend with Compasso, the more I appreciate both the design and your attention to detail in creating it. Cheers!

Are there examples in the demo of video posts where the video appears in the featured image location?

Sorry, currently this theme doesn’t support video in the featured location. Videos can only be shown in the content area

Gawibowo, is there a way to give users with Author role the shortcodes button (green plus sign) in the visual editor? Presently that button is showing only for Admins. Would removing the ‘if user can edit pages’ bit from includes/shortcodes/tinymce.php do the trick?

Thanks for pointing this out. Yes, to make the shortcode button works for author you need to remove the ‘edit_pages’ part so the code will be like this:
if (current_user_can('edit_posts') && get_user_option('rich_editing')) {

Is this theme Multisite compatible?

Yes. I have tested multisite with this theme and it works fine.

Greetings. I want to buy your theme. I am concerned about several issues. Is it possible in your topic interface translation, both for anonymous and for the administrator? In the demo connected to paid plug-ins that need to be purchased for the full functioning of the threads to achieve a similar look?

I’m sorry but I don’t quite understand your question. Did you mean to use a translation plugin like WPML?

Hello! I am trying to extend the excerpt length. As you can see on the post excerpt length does not accommodate the embedded html. It would be great to just eliminate a max-height option. Thank you.


kqn Purchased

I am able to get edit the length through the excerpt CSS, but can I make it auto-fit my embedded HTML? Thanks!

This is because of the auto height script. Please edit js/scripts.js file and delete this code:
var gcontainer = $('.grid-container');
if (gcontainer.length) {
    gcontainer.imagesLoaded(function() {

Gawibowo, I use your theme for a half a year already and I want to thank you for an awesome work!

Waiting for a new updates and new themes.

Hi ram108, thanks for your kind words and support. :)

Hi Gawibowo,

I have a problem with my gallery images. As you can see on the images of three products are bigger then the others. I added this three products just today and I forgot how to make them get the correct size. Can you help me?

Thanks in advance.

You can use this css code to make your images the same size:
#main .gallery img {
    height: 150px;
    width: auto;

Thank you I got it fixed!

Hi Gawibowo,

Is it possible to filter posts of the “page-category.php” by order = “ASC” instead of order = “DESC” ?

It works on the “page-category-masonry.php” page but not on the “page-category.php” page.


Yes it is possible. You just need to edit ‘DESC’ to ‘ASC’, in page-categories.php you need to change in 2 places (line 34 and 65)

That’s what i did, but “page-categories.php” don’t take into account the ‘ASC’ (while it works for the page-category-masonry.php)

Do you have a demo site that I can check?


I was hoping you could help me out with some customisation.

Would it be possible to have the Grid/List/Masonry template filter posts by category and by tag? So the page would display posts from category A, but only if they have tag X as well. I would prefer to use the Masonry template if it makes no difference.

Could this be done with some simple coding, or alternatively do you know of any plugins that could achieve this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, you can do that with small editing. Please edit in the WP_Query section (in page-masonry.php line 19 – 23) and add a new parameter for tag like this:
$custom_posts = new WP_Query(array(
    'posts_per_page' => $number,
    'cat' => $cat,
    'tag' => 'X',
    'paged' => $paged

Thanks for the quick response!

The solution works, but only in the existing page-masonry.php and I’m aiming to have several different masonry templates. So for example:

page-masonry.php would stay the same

page-masonry-x.php would use tag x

page-masonry-y.php would use tag y

I tried to just make a copy of page-masonry.php, but wordpress treats it as the default template.

Sorry for the miscommunication.

Yes you can make multiple copies of page-masonry.php, but you need to edit the template name (line 2) for each template so they will appear as different templates in the page template dropdown.
/* Template Name: Masonry */

Hi there! Does this theme support e-commerce such as woo commerce etc?

Sorry, this theme has not been tested with WooCommerce or other e-commerce plugin


Two quick questions:

1- Is it possible (or maybe could be implemented in the future) to use different colors for category labels and titles? Example: red for Travel, yellow for Technology, etc.

2- Is it possible (or maybe also could be implemented in the future) to set the menu bar in fix mode?


Yes, both are possible. Thanks for your suggestions, I will consider adding 1 & 2 for the next update.


1) Is it possible to remove the right side bar in Category page in order to get one column more space for content (similar as it’s showed in Category Masonry)?. If the answer is yes, how can I do it?

2) Is it possible to show Category Masonry (and Category without right side bar) using 4 columns for content instead 3 as it’s showed currently?

This is a great theme!


1. If you mean categories page template it’s not possible. You need to use a sidebar (right or left)

2. It is possible for Categories Masonry only. You need to edit page-categories-masonry.php, change masonry3col to masonry4col, and change one-third to four

Hi again.

I have just installed the theme in the server and imported the XML example data file.


1- The top slider is not displayed although this is activated in the theme options.

2- In the Custom Widgets page it’s not showed the right side bar.

Any idea what’s happening?

1. The slider is only displayed in the homepage. And please make sure you already follow the steps here.

2. The Custom Widgets page is only for demo to show all available custom widgets, but the XML sample data doesn’t include the widgets data. You need to add manually from Appearance -> Widgets.
