Hi, I bought several themes made by Iron, and for now I have a question about CROMA, I cant find a way to install icon for the switch language in right screen corner like on template. I use plugin for two languages but cant resolve this problem? Thx a lot

Hello Superman,

You have to use a third part plugin for the language switcher as WPML or polylang. If you want to located the language switcher in the header, bu aware you have to place it in the “default language area” to prevent issue with the ajax navigation. https://drops.sonaar.io/i/eBO4no

If you need more assistance please open a support ticket to https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/ticket.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, the CROMA theme loads all fonts from Google and is therefore no longer GDPR compliant.

Solutions such as the “OMGF” plugin or the “Disable & Remove Google Fonts” plugin have unfortunately not brought any success and are therefore not usable.

Can we expect any fix or at least the option to block loading Google Fonts from Google servers? We need to load the fonts locally, which can be achieved through CSS, but is not sufficient if the theme keeps contacting Google Servers again and again. This is very dangerous under GDPR regulation right now for us!

Hi, Please follow instruction from this article: https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/article/18959/

When will plugins that come with this theme be updated? Both Slider Revolution and WP Bakery seem to be perpetually out of date. I am unable to update them myself. They updates must be pushed from Iron Templates.

I have updated my theme to version: 3.5.10. However, a WP Bakery update was not pushed in the theme update. When will a WP Bakery update be pushed to your customers?

Hello Forsbach, WPBakery 6.9.0 is bundled with Croma 3.5.10. Please read the article here about how to update plugins: https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/article/12253/


Great, thanks! That got it updated. I just haven’t had to update a plugin in that way before

Punishable bug in CROMA theme! ATTENTION!!!

Google Fonts may be loaded after newest GDPR right only from the own server and not from Google. Unfortunately, the CROMA theme loads all fonts from Google and is therefore no longer GDPR compliant.

Solutions such as the “OMGF” plugin or the “Disable & Remove Google Fonts” plugin have unfortunately not brought any success and are therefore not usable.

I can then only advise not to buy and to disable the theme, unless the theme is adapted or there is a solution for it!

Hi. I had bought The Croma Theme a long time ago. Now I’ve installed this theme again after a long time.. When I try to install the demo content, the status gets stuck at 9MB out of 43MB and won’t continue. What could be the problem?

Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/7Gn4A6a

After a very, very long wait I get the following error message: “The execution failed. Please check error.log”

Hi. I fixed the installation problem. Unfortunately, the menu is not displayed correctly in the demo content. What could be the problem here?

The page content is also not displayed correctly as in the original demo: https://imgur.com/c67rUwi

Hi there, is this theme Wordpress 6.x and PHP 8.1 ready?

Whats the current Croma Version? I have Version 3.5.9 installed and Croma Music is not working with PHP8.

Kind regards André

Hey Alex, thank you very much! Under Design > Install Plugins > there is only plugin suggested to install: Iron Demo Importer, no other plugins to update… I have Croma Music 3.5.4 installed.

Kind regards

Please update Croma-music. To do it. Delete it first and go to wp-admin>appearance>install plugins And re-install it.


Thank you very much. That worked!


Croma works fine with WP 6.0. No worries. I dont have any update release date to share for now.

Thank you.


Hello, Is there an update for Essential Grid available? We’re running the latest version of the theme but our gallery images aren’t loading and I see we have an outdated version of Essential Grid.


The Essential Grid version bundled with the last Croma version is v.3.0.11. The next Croma version will also come with a new Essential Grid version. If you are running Croma 3.5.9 and your Essential Grid version is lower than 3.0.11, please follow instructions here to update it. https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/article/12253/

Thank you.


We have the latest version of both. It turned out to be a conflict with some Mailchimp code another dev had added. On an unrelated note, I tested the theme with PHP 8 yesterday and the site crashed. Will an updated version of the theme be released soon?


We have already make Croma compatible with php 8. If the site crash it is probably caused by a thirs part plugn. For now, we dont planing to release a new Croma version soon. But no worries, we will do it when it will be required. If you need more assistance, be aware we support our customer through https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/ticket/.

Thank you


I would like to report a potential bug in the Croma Music plugin. I am unable to see any effect when I make any changes to Events settings. Font, size, color, background color, hover color – none of these settings has any effect on the way event lists are displayed. Anyone else having this issue?

small update: it seems that the setting for Color 1 under Look and Feel in the Croma settings (not Croma Music) is affecting the color of my event list text.

Hello Jerome,

Maybe a custom css make the event list typo inherit color from the look and feel Color 1, because the color should be the color from the croma-music>event settings.

If you want us to investigate this issue, please open a support ticket to https://irontemplates.ticksy.com/tickets/



is their any updates coming soon ?

Hi, Yes, we will release a new update soon. Probably in May.


Hello there! Is it possible to add multiple Buy/Download buttons to the music player so there will be a separate button per store, f.ex, Buy in iTunes, Buy in Spotify? Thank you!


You can add multiple buttons in the “available now on” section. See here: https://d.pr/i/y9Gcpp But if you are talking about the button on each track track, no only one button is possible per track.


OK. Thanks for answering! I would suggest to have a feature that allows a separate button per store per song as I as an artist always provide a direct link to every song to all musical platforms. Thank you.

Hi! Does this theme support track previews/cutting? For example, if I want my tracks to play only for 30 second.

Hi Olegvip,

No. Croma doesnt have this feature. You have to cut them on another application.

Thank you,


My site is displaying short code and giving me several error messages. My hosting provider has told me that the issue is with the theme. The error is with the Croma Music plugin and the Croma Iron Setup Theme. Are others contacting you with these errors? How can this be resolved? I have not made any recent changes to the site. It just stopped working.

I do not have access to the admin portal unless I manually disable all plugins. With the plugins disabled I access the portal and try to enable the theme. However, the theme is unable to update. Seems like the theme just stopped working… Is this a problem others are having?

This item is out of the purchased support so I am unable to submit a ticket.

Ok, I think I was able to get the issue resolved. I had used a BlueHost plugin to create a staging area. It must not have totally isolated the two templates and eventually it broke the live Croma site.

Will creating a staging.SiteName.com staging area completely isolate me from the SiteName.com site?

Hi, That depends if you are using a wordpress network or two different wordpress application. You should ask to your webhost provider.


I’m paying for support, but the systmem won’t let me log a ticket info@alteregovoices.com

My support has expired and I have a problem regarding the single album pages on mobile. The album covers’ height is larger than the width, all of them, and I can’t seem to fix it.

You can check it out here: https://soynaer.com/discography/ep-naer/

This only seems to happen on the mobile version. Please help me fix this asap.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, The single album page has this issue since WP 5.9. A new theme release will be available soon to fix this. Until than, you can fix this if you go to wp-admin>croma>custom css/js And if you add this custom css code:

.albumCover img { max-width: unset; }

Thank you.
