Hi Madza – I tried signing up at madzathemes.com twice, it recognized my username and purchase code but I never got a password and it says I’m not registered.

Two problems -

1. The responsive header isn’t being responsive, it stays the same size no matter how small the browser width.

2. I’m using Events Manager, and in some of the pages it generates the header title is wrong. Here’s an example, this is an individual event view: http://wholechildren.itabix.net/classes/sensory-integration-games-and-pre-sport-skills/ Notice the header title is Blog instead of the title of the item, but the page title is correct. Any ideas? It works properly with the twenty-twelve theme and the developer said it’s a theme issue.

Thanks for the quick reply. 1. Done 2. I didn’t realize the logo wasn’t supposed to be responsive, is it possible you could add that? 3. Actually it was line 451, the same string – it worked, thank you.

Just to clarify, maybe I’m doing something wrong because the logo seems like it’s trying to be responsive. When I set the image to 320px width and use a large image as the responsive logo entry, it does not resize. If I use a smaller image as the responsive logo entry, it uses the larger theme logo then when you shrink the width it switches to the smaller logo but stays the same size – so it just gets blurry.


Sorry for so late replay!

Try 280px.

Do you have a tutorial video or anything to reference? I am having trouble finding all of your content elements like…

The Revolution slider Donation form

Thanks, a

Yes thank you kindly, I found them. my later message also references that the contact us template and the blog is not functioning properly. Perhaps I’m not setting something up properly?

BLOG SM IMAGES pages and the CONTACT US templates.

Any thoughts? This is what gets spit back at me. “Fatal error: Call to undefined function of_get_option() in /home/content/06/10949406/html/wp-content/themes/DonateNow/contact-page.php on line 14”

Hi again. I have managed to correct most of the questions I had, however I keep getting fatal errors for the BLOG SM IMAGES pages and the CONTACT US templates.

Any thoughts? This is what gets spit back at me. “Fatal error: Call to undefined function of_get_option() in /home/content/06/10949406/html/wp-content/themes/DonateNow/contact-page.php on line 14”

Hi, I love your theme, it looks great! I’m just having a few problems with the navigation in IE 7, the drop down menus don’t always show the full list of options?

Hi, I am trying to upload the theme but it is saying that it is missing the style.css. Am I supposed to create that or should it come with the zip file?

Also, is there a tutorial that talks about the sliders? I looked in the documentation but could not find anything. I would really like info about how it allows you to add pieces of an image to make one slider or is that flash?

Can I please get an answer to this?

I am sorry about so late reply!

1. Install LayerSlider Plugin. You can find it in plugins/layerslider.zip
2. Download LayerSlider content here: http://goo.gl/PtYUx
3. Import this content. Then go to Appearance/Theme Options/Home Page/ and insert LayerSlider shortcode.

Also you can check LayerSlider orginal video tutorial: http://goo.gl/hbBdH


I am interested in this theme and i got a few questions before buying it.

What do you mean by: SEO optimised, fast Google Page Speed ?

Is it working with the following plugins?:
  • 1. All In One SEO
  • 2. XCloner (Backup)
  • 3. Google Analytics
  • 4. WPML (Greek and English)
  • 5. XML Sitemap
  • 6. Shareaholic
  • 7. Visitor Maps and Who’s Online
Thank you in advance


Currently no incompatibilities with those plugins reported so they should work fine.

About SEO : Important content is always placed before unimportent in your source code (eg: Blog Post content before Sidebar), Headlines are wrapped in heading tags (h1, h2, h3 etc) to signalise their importance to search engines.

Best Regards. Madza

HI there! first of all, very very nice theme! Love the page builder!

I’m having an issue with the ‘category’ select for blog template on page. It displays all posts rather than the 1 category I select in page options.

Any thoughts?


Yes, for now it works only for portfolio template!

This fix comes out in v.1.7

Hello, I am very interested in your wordpress theme and would like to purchase. I want to know if any external plugin has to be used for the sliding banners ?

I recently purchased this theme to upload to my WordPress site and this is what I saw on WordPress. Is there a way around this? Apparently WordPress is no longer allowing the uploading of custom themes. How can I fix this and use the theme that I purchased.


Hi, Yes, you need host this web on server http://get.wp.com/hosting/

Best Regards! Madza

I purchased the theme and I am getting the following when I upload the zip file. Please let me know what is wrong. I am following your documentation and tried with both FTP and zip file. Thank you
