Hi Zerge,

Can you tell me is there any way to lock menu to top on mobiles, like Max Mag theme does?

great theme!

Cheers Si


Yes, it can be done.

Hi Zerge,

Thanks for that, before I buy is it a setting in theme or do I need coding?

Thanks Si

You only need to remove one thing

.navigation select { display: block; }
in the style.css file (via Wordpress editor). I specifically turn off sticky menu for mobile devices, so you can to turn on it.

Hi, I love the template! But I’m having an odd issue…

I have my homepage set to display latest posts, and from what I can see everything is set up correctly (the settings all work with other themes). It will display a static page perfectly fine, just not latest posts…

Do I need to add something to the center magazine widget area?

Sorry if its a silly question and I’m missing something simple, just cant get it to work :(


You need to add the Blog widget.

Makes sense ;) And of course its the only widget I didn’t test :(

Thanks for the extremely quick response!

I’ll definitely be giving your theme 5 stars!

Thank you too, for purchasing this theme and high rating :)

Excellent Template! I just have one question. I didn’t find the PSD files, it came with template or don’t? Thank you!


Thank you John :)

I can send you PSD via email. Send me a message through my profile.

Hi Zerge,

Great work. Love that you included the schema.org into your recent themes. One question/request since we are torn between your two most recent themes. At the top of our list is the Accord theme because visually it perfect for my client’s site but doesn’t have the load more post as in your most recent theme. Do you plan to include this in the Accord theme at some point. I know its been asked but it doesn’t hurt to ask again.


Yes, I plan to add it in the near future.

Are you planning to make the theme optimized for mobile in the near future?


What do you mean? What features?

Adding styles/media queries for mobile devices, hence, saving the visitor from having to zoom in and out on a site that is optimized for iPad and larger resolutions.

This feature is already present (media queries).
Crossroad developed on the Bootstrap — beautifull boilerplate for responsive development so it look beautiful at any size, be it a 17” laptop screen or an iPad, iPhone.

I love the template, looks great, and loads of fantstic features, but I need a gallery similar to this one http://themes.uxbarn.com/?theme=lamoon_wp

Can your theme do this?


Thanks :)

No such feature on this theme. You can use third party plugins for this.

OK thanks, can you suggest one that may work well with your theme to provide this functionality?

PS thank you for the very very quick reply. this is really helpful!

Zerge, you are a legend! Thank you sir, i wish you all the best with the theme, and hope you’ll be as prompt to respond with any after-sales enquiries as you have with providing info! Cheers

Thank you Chris ;)

Quick question: I want to keep the boarder for widgets, but the orange color to match the new color scheme I have choosen. Where if the php for widgets can I change the color to a new one. Thanks.

Sorry about my post, I found the color selection wheel within the widget itself.

nice theme yet! but i think I need self hosted video option. Are there any option for that?


You can use third-party plugins for self hosted videos. By default, theme used youtube, vimeo, etc.

Hello, I have a problem with the option of the template. Options Reset isn’t working. I have a problem with the write rights in the server so i uploaded manualy. I activated. I went to do the Option Reset and it fails. Where are the options stored?


Make sure that the all theme files are writable.

Great looking theme! Does it support custom sidebars?


No, I think custom sidebars will be added in the future versions. But this theme already has 22 widgetized areas.

before I buy, does this theme fully support child-themes – I like to do any customization in a child-theme so I keep a clear upgrade path.



Thanks for your interest in the “CrossRoad” theme!

Yes, you can use child themes with this theme.
If you experience any difficulties, you can always get help.

I’ve just purchased and tried to install but keep getting a blank white screen! What am i doing wrong?

Any quick help appreciated as i wanted to work on this today.

Replied by email.

Zerge, got the theme and been setting it up just now, thanks it’s great so far.

I have put a holding front page up with contact form whilst i build the rest of the content behind it… however, upon testing the form it doesn’t seem to fire? them emails just seem to disappear?

I am using the inbuilt form with no additional plugins, and i have tried changing my admin email, but still no joy.

Can you help?

Hi Chris,

I need access to your WP admin panel, send me a message through my profile,

Hi, No matter what I try. I can’t get the posts to show up. Not even after I have added the Blog Widget. Something you can do?


I need access to your WP admin panel to see what the problem is, send me a message through my profile.

Oops, have read your email :)

Great theme, I’ve set up my website and almost everything was smooth. I needed to hard edit some files to meet all my needs. So, I have some bug and sugestions report here:

Bug: Appearence -> CrossRoad Options -> Styling Options - Changes do not work properly

Localization: CrossRoad: Blog Widget - Missing localization string for “Show More Posts”

Sugestions: - Page Widgets (before/after) - Custom CSS field in Theme Options - Post Rating System in better spot and possible bigger - Option to hide native WP comment system

If you want to see it implemented: http://www.arteblog.net/

Thanks for this theme, Zerge!


1. Make sure that the theme files are writable. Especially in the \css\* directory

2. Yes, you need to translate it in the file \js\load-posts.js

3. Yes, maybe some of this features will be added in the future.

Thank you for choosing this theme ;)


I am having some issues, the Load More Posts Ajax seems to be loading the same posts over and over again. What seems to be the problem?


I’m not a psychic :) So I need to see your site.
