Nice theme, will be purchasing soon for our company. You gonna bring in Font Awesome?


We are currently improving the theme to basically support every icon-font of your choice but since this requires a major rewrite of some of our code base there is no ETA yet. This will take at least another month :)


Can change the fonts types within this theme? It is not listed as a feature.

Many Thanks, R

Yes you can, the theme comes with google fonts support and already uses a predefined set of available fonts. If none of the fonts we added suits your needs you can also add additional google fonts :)

Hi, found a small type mistake in the Layer Slider Administration.


With tis option should be, With this option.

Thanks a lot ;)

Same problem as the others. While i try to “activate” the theme, i get a white screen. Cant see my admin panel or any other page on my site now. Is there a way to kill this template or force the site to use my old template? I cant even hit my admin page after installing this (tried the uploader first, then did the FTP method). Any help would be greatly appreciated. I dont want to reinstall WP and lose all of my work/pages/sliders etc….

Hey! you just have to rename the “enfold” theme folder in your wp-content/themes folder and wordpress will deactivate the theme.

I would recommend to use the ftp installation routine once again then. Make sure to use the latest version of wordpress and also make sure that you are installing only the theme folder. Most users who are having problems with installing the theme try to install the whole themeforest download file which is the wrong way. you need to unpack the themeforest download and then only upload the “enfold” folder. If you still have problems with installation please open a thread in our support forum at and add as many details about your server, wordpress installation, plugins, etc as you can think of :)


I just purchased this theme thinking it was an editable HTML. Any chance you have a guide for install from start to finish with everything PHP, MySQL, Wordpress etc? Or something easier to work with.

Much Thanks in Advance

Hey! Unfortunately not, since this is outside the scope of this theme and our support. But there are a ton of tutorials out there on how to use and setup WordPress installations :)

Here is a link to

but a quick google search shows a lot more (starting from all kinds of beginners tutorials to video tuts etc :) )

Cheers! Kriesi

I tried to ask a question on your support site but recieved this error… ERROR: Could not establish a database connection.

I’ve been able to get the wordpress site setup and running, it really wasn’t to difficult. Now I’m trying to edit pages like Home but not seeing any tools to do things like add the slider and customize the rest of the page. Do i download the home page file and edit it that way, or use the wordpress tools online, thanks for your help in advance!!!

Hey! Not sure what happened with the site but it works fine again in case you want to access the forum. also here are the links to the our instruction videos:

Most of the stuff like slider, columns etc are added with the template builder. Just check the tempalte builder video and it should be quite clear ;)



Where is the best place to look for Q&A outside the documentation? Do you have a support forum, or is the Envato comments the usual way?


Hey! We got a forum set up here, and its also the preferred method if you have any questions:

I usually use the item comments to quickly answer pre sales questions and my team tackles the support requests in the forum :)

Hi Kriesi,

I tried to register on the support forum, having bought Enfold – Ijust get an error has occured, the set up won;t let me enter different parameters and just cycles the error issue.

I just wanted to ask if you have a guide to saving photos for retina display?. I understand about coding with SVG….just curious what you do for images?.



About the login error: would you mind creating a new account again? if it doesnt work send me your purchase code through my themeforest contact form and I will create an account for you ;)

Hi Kriesi, I couldn’t register for support due to an error (above).

Could you tell me the extetnt of retina ready support the theme has?. What does this entail.

What steps do you take to resize photos, can the theme distinguish screen displays and select images?.

If there is no facility to resize images for retina, I was looking at Simple WP Retina Plugin and Regenerate Thumbnails Plugin…I just wondered if you had any guidelines for resizing images, to what size and also the background images?.

Many thanks.

This could be handy Kriesi, esp the JS functionality, what do you think?:

Hey! This actually looks pretty good :) Currently the theme is about 90% retina ready due to the fact that it uses desktop sized images on smartphones and tablets.

That works very well, the only scenario where this doesnt work is of course retina MacBooks. At this point the distribution of high resolution desktop devices is so low that I would consider it overkill to add more retina scripts but you can definitley try the suggested solution :)

Thanks for replying Kriesei – could you sort out my support login, so I can post on the forum?.

Do you save out images to 300 dpi?. Would you recommend a max width of 1030px or 1210px for images?.

Are there any guidelines to what the retina ready standards are for the theme, I just want to figure out how best to save images?.

Thanks again.

Already replied to your other post, please try to create an account again and if that doesnt work send me a mail with your purchase code so I can create one manually :)

DPI is a print based metric and does not really apply to screen resolution. Higher DPI simply results in bigger images (pixel wise)

I would recommend to upload images as big as possible, up to 1500px. the theme will take care of creating appropriate sized thumbnails.

The 90% retina readiness I described above works out of the box then.

hello there is a html template version? ;)

I am sorry, there is no HTML version planned

Hi Just a quick question.

on my homepage at the top, when I click on edit frontage, it takes me to the backend but the premlink shows as: why is there a /homepage there? can I get rid of it?


Hey! did you set this page to be displayed as the frontpage in your backend at enfold->theme options?

Yes, Am I not supposed to?

Hey! Sorry for the late response. was away for the weekend :)

Yes you actually are. I think we need some more information on this topic to help. Hey! Mind opening up a thread in our support forum? My support team will take care of you ;)

Please add a link to your site and also tell us if you have made any recent changes (modified code, activated new plugins etc)

Hi. Want to purchase…just want to know if it would be possble with this theme to have a smaller (2/3 width) slideshow on home page with static text box widget to the left. Thanks.

Yes, you can use the template builder to create a 2/3 – 1/3 layout and place a slideshow within the first column and text in the second

Hello sir,

We want to add a button on fix header menu. How can we add this using shortcode ?

Hey! Thats unfortuantely not possibel without a small modification. you would need to add your button directly to the header.php file and then use css to style it. Unfortunately customizations like this are not included in theme support since they simply take too much time :/

You would need to hire a freelancer if you dont know how to do that. Sorry that I cant really help here

Hi! I want to purchase. I need to confirm few things, 1. Will I be able to change the background (where you used brick, grunge, fabric texture etc) 2. My Logo is a small animated flash animation which I want to keep in place of ENFOLD LOGO. So, is it possible to use animated flash files in place of the logo? 3. Can I change fonts by using my own collection which ever I like? 4. Can I change the color or put any kind of textured color (my own design) in navigation bar? 5. Can I change social media Icons to my own designed icons?

1.) yes

2.) not out of the box, you would need to edit the header.php file and place the flash file there.

3.) The theme supports a subset google fonts out of the box. if you know how to include a font file you can of course add your own fonts as well and activate them with a CSS rule

4.) yes. the navigation bar supports a custom color and a custom background image that can be set from your backend

5.) No

Where can i change the breadcrums title? I need to translate “you are here” to dutch.

And where can i change the captcha text: Please prove that you are human by solving the equation . It has to be Dutch.


Hey! you need to create a dutch language file for that or edit the code directly.

Here is an article on how to translate wordpress:

or you can open the files:

enfold/php/framework/class-breadcrumb.php and enfold/config-templatebuilder/avia-shortcodes/contact.php

and edit those strings manually

Thanks! Problem solved.

Hello, my client bought this theme and so far it’s been amazing, the ability to customize it has been extremely easy!

Except for two Areas which I can’t figure seem to figure out!:

1- I want to increase the font-size of the navigation menu but I can’t figure it out. I CSS targeted .main_menu, ul, li and even .avia-bullet but no success :(

2- On the Enfold Theme Options, there is a “fonts” section in the documentation video, but not on the dashboard that i’m using. Did I miss something in the installation process?

Thanks and what an awesome theme!

Hey! Mind opening up a thread in our support forum? I am currently busy updating the theme and my support team will take care of you ;)

Please add a link to your site and also tell us if you have made any recent changes (modified code, activated new plugins etc)

Hi, are there any dummy data for this theme? Thanks

Yes! Please use the import dummy content button at Enfold->Theme Options to import it :)

I bought this awesome template, great work, however, after installing the theme and I started customizing, I can not get the sliders in the portfolio sections to navigate by using left or right arrows inside the slider. For instance in your demo page the slider navigation works perfectly, in my case, any slider I select does not navigate (except the one in the home page).

Any idea what it could be?

Thank you,

Greetings, I just purchased and am now waiting for my support registration email for your forums but I have a couple quick Qs in the meantime:

- I’ve created quite a few link posts (WordPress post formats) with a previous theme and none of them appear on my blog page. Here’s my existing site with previous theme: and my staging area blog so you can see all the link posts stripped out: (link posts in my previous theme have big green banners on the title to separate them from regular posts). Why aren’t my existing link posts showing in Enfold?

[Update: I might have found the answer. I used WordPress’s sticky/featured post option to highlight posts with a previous theme, and it looks like all posts I ever marked sticky are being placed on the front page of my blog, in front of posts that are chronologically newer. Is this a bug in Enfold? Can I control sticky post behavior somewhere?]

- Could you update Enfold with a visual indicator of link posts that persists across both desktop and mobile states? On desktops you show the big gray link post icon to the left of the title, but on mobile that gets stripped out. Some themes use something simple like an -> indicator that’s automatically added to the end of the name of the link post, others make their link post title text size much smaller (as you can see here:

- I created a number of portfolio items with a previous theme that are not showing in the Portfolio admin section while running Enfold; it’s like I never added them. Any idea what’s going on there?

Thanks so much for your help and a great theme!

Why am I receiving this message after I install the theme:

Hey! This reads as if you are running on a wordpress version lower than 3.5. Have you tried updating to the latest wordpress version?
