Is there any way to have the front-page 3 columns but all other pages two columns? It looks like they all have to be the same. Please let me know.

Nevermind. I found it.

Of course, you can select layout for Home page separately from other pages. http://d.pr/i/yh5f

Hey there,

I’ve set my “latest posts” to show 3 in the center magazine widget but when I go to my site and click on page 2 or “next” it gives me a 404 error. The url shows “mysite.com/?paged=2” My Permalinks Settings are set to “Default” ... not sure if that has anything to do with it. Thanks.


Try to set the “Blog pages show at most” (menu Settings -> Reading ) equal or less than you specify in the Blog widget.

Works! Thanks.

Hi, I’m getting the following error when using the rich snippet tool for google: Warning: Missing required field “updated”. Warning: Missing required hCard “author”.

I’m using Yoast if that makes a difference.

It’s under: hatom-feed

Well, just add this fields.


It depends on which page you tested. If single post page – content-single.php.


I have few JS error:

Of course, send me a message through my profile.

Oh, sorry, I make a mistake! It’s not your theme. Your’s work well. My apologies, ZERGE.

Hey Zerge.. Having a weird issue if I have “standard_numeric” pagination selected in the blog widget. Say I want 8 posts show on each page and I have a total of 13 posts (so 2 pages worth)... if I click to go to the second page, I get a 404 error.

I would like to do something but am unsure how.

On my site I have a main category and sub categories, what I want to do is on the main category use a magazine template like on the homepage, but on the sub categories use the normal blog layout posts left sidebar right.

Sorry I don’t know why the list didn’t show: (1st level) ‘Cars’ -> (2nd Levels) ‘Car Reviews’ ->’ Car Pictures’ -> ‘Car Videos’

This way I can use the main category page as an overview page showing everything to do with ‘cars’ for example.

I was thinking that if I could change the design of each category page individually, I could then use the widget controller so setup the widgets for each category overview?



Sorry I accidently edited, instead of replying and deleted everything ;)

Hey Zerge,

Any news on this? Is it possible?

Thanks for the great theme!


By default, the theme diplays only one (top level) category. If you want to change this you would need to modify the theme files, a task for a developer.

Zerge, would you be willing to help me with getting buddypress to display properly in this theme?

nevermind :)

Hey Zerge!!! Thanks for the banner help you assisted me with last month that worked out great. Now I have 3 questions!

1. Can you please instruct me on how I can post messages on my social networking sites via a link from my website. For Example: Currently, I post information directly on Facebook such as YouTube Videos and recipes that I create, because I don’t have a website to link it back to my site. Once my site goes live, I want to be able to tell everyone I have a new video, but I want that link to be from the website on my social media sites.

2. Are there restrictions on where I can place ads on my site? If not, how do I insert an ad? This is my first Blog ever. Do I insert a blank textbox of where I want the ad and copy the ad code in the box and it will appear on the site?

3. What’s the best spam blocker that’s free you suggest?

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

Yep, waiting.

I don’t have your email address.

Hi Zerge,

Sorry to bother you again but, can you please explain me how i can put more than one video in a blog post and still have them working fine with the “responsiveness” of the theme ?

I’d’like to be able to put more than one video in a “default” blog post template in long post. I think it should be possible to do so by using classic embed code (youtube, Dailymotion or Vimeo) but when i do so, the videos’ size are not correct. As you can see it here : http://carsrendezvous.com/2013/02/911-singer/

By replacing the width with “100%” i can manage to have it right. But the height is alway false.

There must be a better way isn’t it ?

Best regards, Klaki

Hi Klaki,

In your case, try a such code:

<div class="single-video-post">
<iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/fJQ4hQSusjE?rel=0" height="240" width="100%" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe>
Also, add to the style.css:
.single-media-thumb, .single-video-post, .video-frame {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */
    height: 0;
.single-media-thumb iframe,
.single-video-post iframe,
.video-frame iframe {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;

Also, try to use shortcodes: http://wp.color-theme.com/crossroad/media/

Now. THAT’s what i’am calling support. Thanks Zerge, it’s perfect :).

Hello – I sent an email but have received no response. I would like to know how I can adjust the size of the banner/header on top. I would like to reduce the height but can’t find the right code to adjust.


I got it, answer soon.


Hi, I love this theme!! How Easy is to change fonts and background (color/ image) of the site?


Thank you for your interest in our theme.

The title font you can change via Theme Options Panel, body font via style.css file

Background also you can change via Theme Options Panel – http://wp.color-theme.com/crossroad/theme-options/

Hi, Slider widget always show the latest post on top. Can I make it show randomly not order by date?



In the file \functions\crossroad-slider-widget.php make some changes:

1. Add to WP_Query a new parameter:

'orderby' => 'rand',

2. Replace

while($carousel_posts->have_posts()): $carousel_posts->the_post();
while($slider_posts->have_posts()): $slider_posts->the_post();

i would buy it but i need to ask about arabic support , rtl support my site will be in arabic , and i need this them really . i’m waiting your answer :) great theam btw

Yes, you can use this theme with RTL, in any case, you can count on our support in this matter.

Hey Zerge, is there a “boxed” option for this theme? If so where?

If not, would you consider adding it to a future update?


No such option. May be in the next update, but there is no guarantee.

Hi Zerge !

Here is (i hope) 3 last questions :

1°) How can i exclude one category from the latest post widget ? For instance here : http://carsrendezvous.com/ i dont want the “Barn find” category to appear in the latest post as they already are in the carousel.

2°) Do you have any idea how to kill the galery when we click on a Thumb here : http://carsrendezvous.com/category/barnfind/ and here : http://carsrendezvous.com/blog/ but still have it in a single post ?

3°) How can we have the “read more” defined by what we set in the text editor and not randomly choosen for us by the theme for a galery/video ?

3°bis) We’d like to be able to use h2 tags in the blog content listing widget and category listing. If you know how to help…

Thanks in advance. Have a good day.



1. Make some changes in the file \functions\crossroad-1-column-magazine-widget.php: http://d.pr/i/JKh3

2. Remove data-rel="prettyPhoto[gal]" in the files content-category.php and \functions\crossroad-blog-widget.php

3. I’m not sure I understand your question, could you please clarify?

4. Just add H2 in the file \functions\crossroad-blog-widget.php if you need.

How do I change the menu color? (text) Thanks… I have been looking but can’t figure it out.


Change in the style.css;
.sf-menu a, .sf-menu a:visited  { 
    color: #e3e3e3;
and also for active menu item:
li.current_page_item a, .current_page_item, li.current-menu-parent, li .current-menu-item, .current-menu-item {
color: #fff !important;

Thanks for your reply earlier… that worked with the text in the menu. I am frustrated and there is probably a simple answer for this: How do I add widgets to the home page?!!

1. Do you mean the banner or image below the logo?

2. For this you need to change size for

add_image_size( 'slider-thumb', 730, 514, true );
in the file functions.php and then rebuild thumbs for “slider-thumb”.

I want to put an image to the left or right of the logo block.

You can do it in the file header.php

Hello! Mr.ZERGE. Thank you for this tpl.

I can’t save on CrossRoad Options. A popup message appears “error!”.

What’s the cause?


Read the FAQ :)


Hello, Great theme – it looks great on my webpage so far. Just one quick question. I have the blog widget set up on my front page. When I publish a blog post it appears fine when I visit the blog post page, but when viewed on the front page, via the blog widget, the blog post loses some formatting – it does not recognise any new paragraphs, so the post all flows as continuous text. As I say, when I visit the blog page, the formatting is fine. Any ideas what I can do?

Aha, I understood. In the style.css change inline to inline-block for

.widget .entry-content p, #entry-blog .entry-content p { display: inline; }

Thanks Zerge! Great 5 star service!

Thank you too ;)
