The site golfdaily.com uses your theme and got hacked. I am the new guy doing site but did not buy the theme. How can I get access to reinstall? The owner bought it once with a previous developer?


To access the download, you must have the account that made the purchase. Please contact Envato if it was purchased by a personal account.

HELP!!! My Espresso Shortcodes plugin CRASH my Wordpress!!!

Hello, Please try to deactivate plugins one by one to see which one is responsible for this error.

In case you can’t access the WordPress, You can delete the folder `/wp-content/plugins/envirra-extensions` by using FTP or File manager of your hosting (you may ask your hosting provider for this tool)

If the issue still exists, kindly use the contact form on my profile page to provide me an admin account, the login URL, and the page URL. I will investigate it.

VW Simple Page Composer plugin CRASH my wordpress

Replied in the previous thread 8)

I have the old Espresso theme and now if I want to add the new 2.0 espresso theme then what should i do to avoid the errors

Hi there,

Please test on a local or staging site to look for potential issues. To test the first result, you can disable all third-party plugins (except from the theme’s plugins).

Anyway, The Espresso 2.0 has a completely different structure from the v1. Some extra post data such as review, tagline, shortcodes and settings may not be working on v2. Please verify after migration. Re-inputting some settings is necessary.

Sorry, I can’t install demo content in order to replicate the exact behaviour of demo here: https://preview.themeforest.net/item/espresso-magazine-newspaper-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/10993738?_ga=2.252340161.938558038.1677764309-1695629225.1654500012

I installed all required plugins, Espresso theme parent and Espresso theme child. I can’t see “Import demo content” in the menu. The theme, however doesn’t have a slider plugin in the recommended plugins. This theme as downloaded is a crap. I followed your guide (with no success) here: https://envirra.github.io/wordpress-espresso/index.html#/installation/README?id=import-demo-content

If you have a kickstart, it could be better and easier to install.

Hi there,

Please also install this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/one-click-demo-import/

I have Espresso 2.1.1 and was wondering can I have a second different header on all other pages other than the home page? And how do I do that?

What a Beautiful theme,, looking as good as Sprout theme.

Hello again,

I think I have figured out what may be wrong. I went into your documentation and realized that I have downloaded and activated the Espresso theme options panel and the espresso short codes as well as Envirra extensions BUT I am not seeing them in the admin panel. They are not there – installed and activated. Where do I find them? Under what area? Also, I don’t see the one click demo. If you could tell me where these are I am sure I can figure out how to fix this. Here is my site https://www.missionariesofprayer.org Thank you so much for your help.

Hi there,

The plugin “Espresso theme options” and “espresso short codes” is no longer available. Please make sure that the plugin “Envirra Extensions” is already activated. More information about installation is here https://envirra.github.io/wordpress-espresso/index.html

Just navigate to the admin menu “Appearance > Widgets”.

Hello, I have migrated to version 2 finally! It’s really just the restructuring of the pages as all my data is there. Thank God! What I would like to know is what is the new way to layout the homepage in this version.

I used to be able to add the widgets directly from the page and do the layout. I no longer see these widgets available How do I do this with version 2?

I actually need to know how to add the widgets with all these new pages.

Thank you so much!

I received your response about going from version 1 to version 2. OK, if all I need to do is redo the main page layout with the upgrade and redo the side bars and widgets and page options then I can just set aside the time to do those after the upgrade.

I will still be able to access the admin dashboard right? So I can do the layout again by myself.

I thought it was going to require new coding, css work, inserting new code, etc. hard technical things which I know I cannot do.

If all I need to do is set up the homepage again and side bars and page options I can do this myself. I just didn’t know if extra coding was needed.

Please reconfirm this and I will be ok with doing it live after the upgrade because I am sure I can do it myself within 1- 1.5 hours after the upgrade. Are you still maintaining the version 2 of the template? It is such a beautiful template. Please don’t abandon it. You do such great work.

Thank you again.

Hi there,

No extra coding needed. Just disable v1 theme and all v1 plugins (shortcode and theme options panel)

I recommend try upgrading on local machine before applying on live site.

Please help! I am using version 1 of the espresso theme. I love this theme and I need to migrate to version 2 but as you know it breaks the site. How do I make this update? Is there an easy way to do this? Do you charge to do this? My developer doesn’t know what needs to be done to fix it.

Please let me know. Thank you so much.

Hi there,

Kindly sorry, I’ve no service for migration. You can try migration on stage site or local machine before make a decision ( by using this plugin for duplicate from live site to local machine)

Here is the checklist for upgrade to version 2. You might check these items after upgrade
- Individual post options (an extra options that provided by theme)
- Individual page options (an extra options that provided by theme)
- Homepage or any page created by Simple page composer
- Theme options and all settings in Customizer
- Widgets


Hi there,

Thanks for your interest. This theme has accessibility support. You can check the demo site if it fits your requirements https://envirra.com/themes/espresso2/

I just installed this theme and a lot of options are missing. Like “Theme Options”, can’t even set up the home page as the settings for that are also missing. I would like to ask for help regarding these issue.

Hi there,

Please install the plugin ‘Envirra Extensions’ (bundled in theme files). More information about installing plugin, Please check https://envirra.com/themes/espresso/document/

After install the plugin, Navigate to ‘Appearance > Customizer’ There are a lot of option here.


I have some errors when previewing the theme :

Hello, on my site


I noticed that using the search from the frontend, the query also returns me articles that are still in draft? how come? what can I do?


Working on customize.php, I keep saving but the settings are not updated and I get this constant error

PHP Warning: Illegal string offset ‘custom_css_post_id’ in /home/dealflow/public_html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 1063

All this happened from one moment to the next.

It’s very urgent.

Hi there,

This theme has no this variable name (The custom_css_post_id). Please try to deactivate plugins one by one to see which one is responsible for this error.

Hey guys, We’ve been using the Espresso theme since 2016 on a client site. We now need to upgrade PHP from 7.0 to 7.4. But the theme version we have keeps falling over itself when we try and update. Can you advise how we get a PHP 7.4 compatible theme please? Thanks Chris

I upgraded to 1.5.4 from 1.5.1 and I had asked this question before a couple of years ago. My posts have more than one h1 on the page. How can I fix this? Thanks again!

Hi there,

Don’t worry about duplicating h1. Since theme has structured-data for let google know what data is on the page.

Thank you!
