Hi! I love the theme! I’m just having a couple issues. When viewing my site on mobile, the nav menu dropdowns bounce up and down so you can’t really see or choose the options in the dropdowns. Is there a fix for this?

Also, is there an easy way to make the mobile margins smaller/body wider? The content is very narrow so it takes too long to scroll past the slider text, slider image, 4 vertical services, etc. to finally get to the page content.


Ok, so the issue was due to a silly typo, so it wasn’t too hard to fix. You can fix it by changing a single line of code in the HTML source. Find the following line:

<script src="http://static.tumblr.com/6nxvfxq/OK8nlum5o/scripts.20150324.min.js"></script>

If you’re behind v1.1.0 you won’t find an exact match, but there will be a similar line of code near the bottom of the document. Replace that line with:

<script src="http://static.tumblr.com/6nxvfxq/IQ5om0k82/scripts.20150324.min.js"></script>

Save your changes and check your site on your phone. Please let me know if that fixes the issue on your end. It only happens after the viewport is resized—that’s why I missed it the first time around.


Perfect! It works now. Thanks so much!

No problem! If you encounter any issues, please shoot me an email using the form on my profile page. I will be on vacation the first half of March, so I may not respond right away.

I am considering buying the ellisium theme but I was wondering if you would be willing to post this shopify code into a text post on your ellisium demo so I could see what my shopify widget will look like if I buy the theme?

The code to paste (as html) into a text post is here: http://images.syncpedia.com/unsorted/shopify-code.txt

Hi there, thanks for your interest! I’m sorry I couldn’t get back to you sooner. Please allow me a day or two and I will test you code and get back to you. Best regards.

Thanks for your response but I already figured out another way to test it and it works fine. I’ve purchased it already :). Thanks for making a great theme, i’m really glad I purchased it.

Thanks for your purchase! If you need help with anything else, please get in touch via the form on my profile page. Cheers!


I was wondering if it was possible to customize Page Heros for different pages, or if we only had the one that will stay constant?


Hi there,

The page hero is the same for all internal pages now. However that’s an interesting request, will see if it can be added to an update. Basically, you will have to edit the post or page in HTML mode and add a class of page-hero to any paragraph or quotation.

if you purchase the theme, make sure you enable email notifications to be notified about updates.



Sorry for the long delay, been building the blog with this theme. I was wondering if there was a way to sign up for the updates after already purchasing the theme. When i originally wrote this message, I had already purchased Ellisium.

A second request that I have is the ability to put a title on tagged pages? I’m not quite sure if this is possible, but I’ve been making each of my pages a .tumblr/tagged/x but would like to have a title on each page so visitors would know which page they are on.

Hey there,

To get notified of theme updates visit your email settings page and make sure “Item update notifications” is checked.


Please login with the account you used to purchase the theme—so I can verify the purchase—and send me a message using the contact form on my profile page with your requests. I will get back to you by email.


Hello, this one may sound silly but, here it goes: I want the Slider Buttons to open in a new page (target = blank) when clicked. I use this theme a blog for the main company site, so we want the user to open a new page and go to our main site when they click on the slider buttons.

How can I do that ? I have to dig into the HTML ? If so, which line ?


Never mind. I went into the code, searched for “large button shadow has-arrow” and added target=”_blank”

Sounds like you found the way :) Let me know if you need help with anything else. Cheers!

Hello, is the slider adjustable in it’s height so that it looks more like on the “Supple”-Theme (= not as huge as in the “Ellisium” demo)?

Hi there,

The height of the slider will depend on the content inside the slides, images and/or text. Ellisium’s slider is also flexible, meaning that it will accommodate slides of different heights.

The images on the demo slider are 1140×500 pixels. If you were to use only images for your slider, you could make them 1140×320 pixels for a slider that isn’t that tall, for example.

I hope that answers your question!



A small glitch in your otherwise great theme. When anonymous ask is enabled. This is what happens to the Ask button.


How can we fix that ?

Sure, that box needs to have a fixed height, and when anonymous asks are enabled it needs to be a little taller. Try adding this to your custom CSS (Advanced options > Add Custom CSS):

#ask_box {
    height: 260px

Let me know if it helps!

Thank you. That worked perfectly

I’m glad it did. Cheers!

I would like to add a tag cloud somewhere in the sidebar or below, but I do not see that widget in the settings. Can you advise how to add a tag cloud that automatically list all the tags used on the blog ? Thanks

Good find, I’ll bookmark that one. Because that functionality isn’t provided natively by Tumblr, that’s the sort of thing that’s handled best with external tools or plugins.

I knew about such a tool, but it involved running some PHP scripts, so you needed a web server. This one seems to be a pure JavaScript solution. Let me know if it works well for you.


That tool worked perfectly. Bookmark it. ;-)

Ok, thanks!

I cannot find where to change the color of the Page Hero Content. I looked everywhere in the theme settings. Do we have to change it by CSS ?

Do I have need to add a custom CSS ?

I ended up adding a custom CSS. Is that the way to do it ?

There’s a color option labeled “Page Hero Text”, that should do it. Either way, it’s an easy thing to change with some custom CSS.

Hi, do you know a trick to allow to put a title to photo and video posts in Tumblr ? I’ve been looking all over. Great theme by the way

Sure, just highlight the first paragraph on the post caption (your “title”), and make it bold, as stated on the docs:



Thanks a lot. That was perfect.

No problem!

I have purchased this theme for a client. The client loves the theme but apart for one issue. When seeing tags he would prefer for the slider and service blocks NOT to be shown. It’s weird that the slider and service blocks are presented AGAIN to the user when he’s seeing a post page or a tag page. http://blog.qinergy.com/tagged/capteur

Is there a way to make it so that the slider and service blocs are only shown on the HOME page. Not on any other page ?

You can do that with some minor changes to the theme. On line 1198 change the <div id="page"... tag and add the following to the ‘class’ attribute:


Make sure it looks like this:


Then add the following CSS rules (Advanced options > Add Custom CSS):

.tag-page #homepage-slider,
.search-page #homepage-slider,
.tag-page #featured,
.search-page #featured {
    display: none;

That will hide the slider and services blocks on tag and search pages.

Let me know if that helped!

Thank you. That worked fine.

You’re welcome! I’m glad it worked.

Hello, I searched for the word “population” in your demo theme, it was not found. Resulted in a blank space where the results are supposed to be. When I search for a word in my blog, it’s not found either, unless it’s in the title. Is that a bug ?

Looks good! The following Custom CSS will integrate the input field a little better with the rest of the sidebar:

#site-meta form {
    padding: 20px;

#st-search-input {
    width: 100%;
    height: 30px;
    box-sizing: border-box;



No problem!

Is there an updated installation guide? The one I’m following seems outdated. TUMBLR Settings have changed. And directions with TextEdit 1.9 on Mac don’t match your directions. I’m stuck.

Sorry about that. Please refer to the documentation of one of the newer themes, as the installation steps are the same, the only thing that changes is the file you need to open: http://goo.gl/pHWhzf

Follow the steps outlined here to configure TextEdit to work with HTML: http://goo.gl/AQzSrv

If you still need help, please send me an email using the form on my profile page.


Super Helpful. I appreciate it!

Hello, I just bought your theme. It’s great but how do I change the order of the menu items on the navigation bar? I want to move the Ask Me Anything link at the very right while moving the Browse menu closer to the home button.

I just replied to your email. Let me know how that works for you ;)

Thank you so much for solving my problem so quickly!

No problem! Glad I could help :)

Hi, I have been using your theme for a while now and it has worked great! I just have a little question… I want to make the images in my posts larger, where can I change that? I have been trying to do it for a while and can’t seem to get it done.

Thanks for your time! :)

Hey there,

Not sure what you mean. The images span the full width of the left column—about 660px wide. They can’t be displayed wider than that, but if you click on them they will open at full size on the lightbox.

Cheers :)



purchased your theme and installed it successfully on tumblr. My question: Can I “activate” easily (the settings of) Demo Two or do I have to configure all the things (green background etc.) manually?

Hi there,

Thanks for your purchase!

Sadly, there’s no way to do that automatically—all colors have to be changed manually.

I put together a color table with all of demo #2 color values, I hope that helps a little:




Thank you for your very fast reply/support. The color table helps me a lot!!

You’re welcome! I’m glad it helped :)

I can’t seem to be able to make the Instagram photos show up! I put in the access token but it doesn’t seem to work. My Instagram ID is brandmentalist. Can you please help?

Please check your authorized applications on your Instagram account (http://goo.gl/YMlckL) and make sure jQInstaPics is on that list. If it’s not, the token was revoked access and you need to create a new one by visiting jQInstaPics homepage and clicking on the “Retrieve my details” button.

If this doesn’t work, please provide a link to your site so I can look into it.

Best regards,


Sorted. Thank you :)

Great to hear that! You’re welcome!

Hi there,

I’m trying to create images for the slider bar. What is the size? I keep having trouble creating images that perfectly fit!


Hi there,

The demo images for the slider are 1140×500 for fullwidth images and 570×500 for the image-plus-text slides. Those dimensions seem to work well. You can make them taller if you need to, just remember to keep them proportional (the smaller images should be half as wide but have the same height as the fullscreen images).

I hope that helps!

Hi friends,

I never use a tumblr for professional issue , but i want to try. So after i buy this theme? Will i need a host? Or just install in tumblr with out extra costs?


You won’t need a host. You simply create a new Tumblr account and install the theme on your main blog, or on a secondary blog on an existing account. You can leave your site domain as a Tumblr subdomain or use a custom one (http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains).

Kind regards,


The theme and support is very good.

I went through many (dozens) themes and demos before I chose Ellisium. I’m satisfied – blog looks good and the documentation is really well written. Navigation bar is perfect, also the footer and sidebar. Design is clean. Color options – so many of them! Homepage slider – I think this is what really got me.

My suggestions: Archive button and Liked posts. I got these things when I asked about them in a mail (thanks Sergio!), I just think that for theme like this they could be useful.

Thank you.

Hi Ausma,

Thanks for the nice write-up and the very kind words! An “archive” button on the navigation menu and the ability to show “likes” on the sidebar would be useful, so I will probably add them with the next update.

Cheers :)


HI there, I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on the theme but had a quick Q – is it possible to customize the background image/color in the header/slider section? Or are there only two options there?

Hello there,

Of course, you can change the header/slider background image and color. All colors are customizable.
