The arrows.png and the sprites.png are causing a delay in load times… version 1.07. (website: theitbros.com) http://i.imgur.com/9VvNPj2.png?1


It easily to resolve. Just remove from the file /css/nivo-slider.css:
background:url('../images/sprites.png') no-repeat;
and from the file /css/flexslider.css
background: url(../images/sprite-arrows.png) no-repeat 0 0;

k, the sprites.png is now fixed… I should have been more specific on the other one.

This is getting a 404 error. http://theitbros.com/wp-content/themes/wp-crumblemagazine/images/arrows.png

I just downloaded a fresh copy of your theme and that file definitely isn’t there.

I noticed in style.css under .sf-sub-indicator { it references background: url(‘images/arrows.png’). I have tried removing that and still getting 404 error. Do you know if the arrows.png is referenced somewhere else?

Thanks! Taking that first one out already improved site by about 1.5 seconds… Hoping to find this 2nd one and will be super fast :) Thanks again!


Don’t see any 404 errors on your site. Check it again.


Why is the wp-imageflow plus plugin not working in this template?


Could you please clarify?

Also, as I can see, this plugin was last updated: 2008-9-5
I think is the main reason, now 2013 :)


Sorry, I ment this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-imageflow2/ Can I send the website link in a private message or something?

Serge, NextGen galleries shutter & lightbox effect aren’t working with crumble – when I switch themes they work. Is there a fix for this?

nevermind, works great, it was me! And to anyone considering this theme, I’d highly recommend it!!! It’s the bomb and the support is always fast and great!

Thanks Justin ;)

Hi Zerge,

1) How do I change the colour of the Menu links? (normal colour, hover and visited colour)

2) Post category pages show the full post, I need it to just show Thumbnail, Title and Exceprt only?


Thank you Zerge but it does not display thumbnails in the category view?


Your post should have Featured image.

Yes Zerge.. please of course it does.

How can I make my featured image only be featured image?

Because right now when I select featured image it is automaticly showed in my post as a post image and I dont want that.

Thank you


Just remove this code from the file single.php: http://tny.cz/3ffb364d

Hi Thank you for your amazing work, i totaly felt in love with this theme. I would just want to know how could i add a youtube video in my post as the default type of video instead of Vimeo? thanks for your answer.

Yeah that’s exactly what i was looking for. Thank you ;)

Just another question… Where can I change the color of the widget title texts? i want to use yellow color instead of red but it’s unreadable with white text, i would like to change it by black. Thanks

In the style.css or light.css:
h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6 { 
    color: #edeae2;
    line-height: 18px;
    font-weight: bold;
    font: 10px/18px 'Oswald', sans-serif;
    word-spacing: 2px;    
.widget-title h4 {
color: #fff;

Hello Sir

I have purchased this theme,while uploading it i am getting an error that

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet”

How can i resolve this error?


You don’t need to install the package zip, only the theme zip contained within (wp-crumblemagazine.zip).

Thanks for the link. I hope it works

Hi Zerge, i have a big problem with the front page. Every time i choose a Magazine Widget and activate the “Show thumbnail image” the result looks weird. almost like pictures are overlapping. Looks like this:


Hi SaschaW,

I think it’s not a big problem ;)
Probably you need to reupload Featured images for this posts or rebuild thumbnail (with AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin)

Thanks, works like a charm. Two more questions.

I choose Blog Style 2 for the blog but every time someone clicks inside the article they see style 1. is there a way to choose style 2 as default for every article on the blog?

Blog Style 2 on the blog: http://highscoreheroes.de/wordpress/blog/ Article Style 1: http://highscoreheroes.de/wordpress/2013/02/23/folge-108-sly-4-aliens-colonial-marines-ps4-besprechung/ Categorys are Style 1, too: http://highscoreheroes.de/wordpress/category/video/

2) There are five Upload Spots for the Gallery on the editor. Is it possible to have more than 5 objects in one gallery? And is it possible to use a second gallery in one article? For example in the middle of the article?

Thanks in advance for your help. :)


1. For this you would need to modify the theme files, a task for a developer.

2. For this you would need to modify the theme files: \includes\post_views.php, single.php

In the posts you can use any other third-party galleries.

Does this theme support pagination in blog posts?

For example, if I have a ‘5 diet tips’ can I divide into 5 pages for every tip (to maximize ads)

If so, how is it graphically represented?

Hi ijeswannabuythemesok,

Thank you for your interest in our theme.

Yes, you can use pagination in the posts/pages, for example: http://wp.color-theme.com/crumble-dark/the-lizard-of-fire/ (‘pages’ can be replaced with any word)


I just purchased that amazing theme however i have a question please it’s very important for me, Is it possible that the featured image to be copied from article content. I have tried some plugins like auto featured image, automatic featured image, but they didn’t work.



I think it’s possible, but it’s a task for a developer.

Hello Zerge,

Thank you for an incredible theme. I want to know how can I make my reviews up to 10 stars instead of 5? Of course I would like the ability to add more criteria so that it can be 10 in total.

Thank You, Al


For this you would need to modify the theme files (template-reviews.php, \functions\reviews\crumble_create_review.php, etc.), a task for a developer.

Hi, Zerge I am trying to get my uploaded background image to center, no-repeat (instead of top left repeat). Which file(s) would I modify to make that work?

Thank you in advance for your time. - HG

AH! I missed that “Save All Settings” part. How silly of me. Thank you for answering my dumb question. You Rawk.

BTW – I rated this theme five stars, and I suggest that everyone who purchases it do the same. It is actually a very well-designed theme…. I’m not just saying that because Zerge answered my dumb question.

Thank you ;)

Hi Zerge,

Is it possible to show the normal website on a smartphone instead of the responsive one? How can I make this work?


Try to exclude file /css/layout.css and remove all media queries (like @media only screen {...}) from the file /css/skeleton.css

Hi Zerge,

It works! Thanks again for your great help and your amazing theme! You rock!


Hey Zerge, still loving this awesome theme on 10000birds.com! But we discovered a little glitch with the search function. When we search a term with more than one word, the first page of results comes up fine, but clicking through to any other page results in a 404 error. This only happens with multi-word searches. How can we fix this? Thanks!

Hi Mike,

Send me a message through my profile

Hi, Zerge. I have another dumb question or two for you.

(1) Is it possible for blog post featured images to display in their original size (instead of stretch to 100% width) in both the blog (excerpt lists) page and the blog single page?

(2) If not, I have tried removing the featured image from the single pages using your tip from a previous post here, but in the blog1, blog2, etc. pages, that line of code is already commented out, so the featured image still shows up full size anyway. Any updated suggestion on how I can remove the featured image from the blog excerpt list pages?

Thanks in advance for your reply, and (again) I apologize for taking up your busy time with my silly questions.

That works, but it also makes the featured image in the front page widget normal size as well :(

Never mind. I set a max-height for .one-col-horiz-left img,

BTW: I ended up screwing everything up, so I deleted it all (including the core Wordpress files & database) and started over. One of these days I’ll learn to quit dicking around with stuff. The theme is fine the way it was originally designed by Zerge. :P

Why is it that all of the thumbnails are way too big and overlapping in the magazine recent posts widget?


Try to rebuild your thumbnails with AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ajax-thumbnail-rebuild/

Hello Sir,

I am not able to handle this theme,frankly speaking. Actually i am not much into coding things so would you please tell me the solution two come out from these two blunder How should i create a Menus like in the demo them;Home,Food,Drop Down menus and specially the one with ThemeWidget(drop-down Menu)in your demo them. //It would be great for me if you will explain the terms simply !

Hey Zerge, Just checking to see if you had the shortcode for toggles working on this theme? I dont see anywhere to select toggles in the shortcode generator

Hi hotryan,

No such shortcodes.

oh dam ok you might want to remove from the text description

Shortcode Generator (Columns, Toggles, Dropcaps, Highlights, Video)

i thought i was going crazy lol any chance you might be thinking about adding them in?

Sorry, found it, named Collapse in the shortcode generator:

[collapse title="Your Title"]Content here[/collapse]

Hi I just purchased this awsome theme , i am indeed thrilled, though i have a silly question. I don’t know how i enable the blog style template. I am trying since this afternoon but i am failing to see my site in a blog style (i know is a silly question but if someone can help that would be appreciated)


Thanks :)

Create a new Page and select on the Page Attributes template “Blog”

many thanks , that works great
