Dear dynamicpress,

The previous owner of my website bought your template a few years ago and implemented it. I want to buy the new version of the theme in order to update my website (evolve version 3.4.3), because some elements are not working 100%. But before I will buy the template and update it, I need to know if the update will change my website-layout and design. I don’t want any big changes in my website. Can you look take a look at my current website? And tell me rather the update will change my website(layout) or not.

kind regards

Hi dynamicpress,

I just went to appearence -> themes and i clicked on update. Now the website is updated to version 3.6.2 but the website isn’t working anymore?

Kind regards


I just got it work, but the whole lay-out changed!


Please send me dashboard access. Most probably you have upgrade our theme with free theme with the same name https://wordpress.org/themes/evolve/

Newest version of our DP Evolve is 4.2 not 3.62.

Generally you must have prvious very old version of our Evolve. Since v 2.0 our theme is installed in another folder dp_evolve and such mistaken upgrad eis not possible.

http://www.patiocover.us/ my page keeps going down. I’ve had issues like this for about two weeks now. I’ve contacted my host and they continuously tell me it might be an issue with the skip on the page. At this point I’m not sure what the problem is and how to prevent this from happening. Can you please look into it and possibly clarify it this is something that can be corrected to prevent it from happening again.

I have received WP dashboard access. :) I suggest we stay in contact on support forum. There is more comfortable to answer :)

please provide me the link for support forum and we will keep contact that way per your request.

I thought that you know this. 35 minutes ago I found the same question (regarding the same site) on our support forum. Sended by nadav.

Perhaps two people from your team at the same time asking the same issue?

Quick question: I just downloaded your new update and instead of showbiz in the plugins, there is now essential-grid. Is this new and how do we use this new feature on previous versions of your theme?

Thanks. I chek it today.

I sent you an email with the 2 sites for which the essential-grid is not working, did you get it?

OK. I receive your email. I have check both your sites and fix what is possible.

Detailed answer send per email.

Once more sorry for delay :).


Any idea why I can no longer add a featured image to the blog post since your last update?

Sorry for delay.

Your comments are mistakenly marked as not requiring a response :(.

I have found it now.

Sorry we don’t receive your email. Please resend.


I just resent the email, thanks

Fixed. Detailed answer send per email :).

I am using DP Evolve (purchased under another username), and I have a site that I am working on, but I can no longer make changes in the theme settings. If, for example, I try to click on the color selector under appaearance, nothing happens. If I try to enter a hex code manually, it doesn’t work, since clicking the save button does nothing (it doesn’t save and it doesn’t show the little saving / working animation).

What can cause that? How do we fix it?


This time received. We check already issue direct on your server. Let you know ASAP

Is fixed . You have older version of themme and newest WP 4.7 We have upgrade theme and all plugins to latest version so you can ignore upgrade to 4.7 which will be publish in few hours.

Hey dynamiquepress, thanks for your theme.

I change my h1 logo (that you mentionnend in another comment) by changing the code. It works well.

But they are still a code h1 on the sticky part.

<section class=”dp-page”> <header id=”dp-head”>

How can i remove the h1 on the sticky navigation please.

Thank you :)

Hi :) ,

You should do the same in 3 files:

  1. /wp-content/themes/dp_evolve/lauouts/after.php
  2. /wp-content/themes/dp_evolve/lauouts/after-nosidebar.php
  3. /wp-content/themes/dp_evolve/lauouts/after-vc.php
Find following part of code abot line 22 or 39: <div id="dp-sticky-navigation-wrapper"> <div id="search-form-wrapper-1"> <div id="dp-head-wrap"> <section class="dp-page"> <header id="dp-head"> <?php if(get_option($dynamo_tpl->name . "_branding_logo_type", 'css') != 'none') : ?> <h1> <a href="<?php echo home_url(); ?>" class="<?php echo get_option($dynamo_tpl->name . " _branding_logo_type="">Logo"><?php dp_blog_logo(); ?></a> </h1> <?php endif; ?> ..... and replace tag h1 with h2. Kris DynamicPress Support Team</div></div></div>

The breadcrumb home link text is referring from the general settings blog name.What I want is that the home text link is referring from the name of the home page. I know I have to edit this rule: $output .= ‘’ . apply_filters(‘dynamo_breadcrumb_home’, get_bloginfo(‘name’)) . “”;

What code is needed in this line to achieve this?


I’m not sure if I rigt understand. Function dp_breadcrumbs_output() is in file wp-content/themes/dp_evolve/dynamo_framework/helpers/helpers.layout.php about line 419.

As you see in home link is returned Site title set in Settings -> General (this value is returned by function get_bloginfo(‘name’) ).

If I right understand you will display in home link in breadcrumb title of page currently set as Homepage/Frontpage. If it is right you should change code of function dp_breadcrumbs_output to following:

function dp_breadcrumbs_output() {
    global $post;
    // open the breadcrumbs tag
    $output = '<div class="dp-breadcrumbs">';
    // check if we are on the post or normal page
    if (!is_home()) {
        // return the Home link
        $output .= '<a href="' . home_url() . '" class="dp-home">' . get_the_title( get_option('page_on_front') ) . "</a>";
        // if page is category or post
        if (is_category() || is_singular()) {
            // return the category link
            $output .= get_the_category_list(' ');
            // if it is a subpage
            if (is_page() && $post->post_parent ) {
            $output .= '<a href="' . get_permalink($post->post_parent) . '">' . get_the_title($post->post_parent) . '</a>';        
            // if it is a post page
            if (is_singular()) {
                // return link the name of current post
                $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . get_the_title() . '</span>';
        // if it is a normal page
        } elseif (is_page()) { 
            // output the page name
            $output .= get_the_title('<span class="dp-current">', '</span>');
        } elseif (is_tag() && isset($_GET['tag'])) {
            // output the tag name
            $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . __('Tag: ', 'dp-theme') . strip_tags($_GET['tag']) . '</span>';
        } elseif (is_author() && isset($_GET['author'])) {
            // get the author name
            $id = strip_tags($_GET['author']);
            if(is_numeric($id)) {
                // output the author name
                $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . __('Published by: ', 'dp-theme') . get_the_author_meta('display_name', $id) . '</span>';
        } elseif(is_404()) {
            $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . __('Page not found', 'dp-theme') . '</span>';
        } elseif(is_archive()) {
            $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . __('Archives', 'dp-theme') . '</span>';
        } elseif(is_search() && isset($_GET['s'])) {
            // output the author name
            $output .= '<span class="dp-current">' . __('Searching for: ', 'dp-theme') . strip_tags($_GET['s']) . '</span>';
    // if the page is a home
    } else {
        // output the home link only
        $output .= '<a href="' . home_url() . '" class="dp-home">' . get_the_title( get_option('page_on_front') ) . "</a>";
    // close the breadcrumbs container
    $output .= '</div>';

    echo apply_filters('dynamo_breadcrumb', $output);

I’m having issues with my language files with the new version 4.7. The files in the child theme’s languages folder (“languages”) aren’t working any more since updating to Evolve 4.7 and WP 4.7. Am I the only one with these issues?


Dear Kris,

I updated from the previous version 4.5 (Evolve) and from 4.6 (WP). Will send you the child theme for testing in a minute!

Thanks in advance, Daniel

I suppose that you have problem with icon font via CDN. Most probably it is well known fonts cross domain restriction.

Please follow advices in one of bellow linked articels to fix this problem.

I am trying to edit content on my pages that I used visual composer (that came with the theme) to create. Right now every time I try t edit visual composer is not loading, little circle keeps spinning and it says “Loading, please wait…​”. I updated plugin files from the latest theme update.

Please advise.

Please send me dashboard access . Seems that something wrong with AJAX. I check this. Send on support@dynamicpress.eu or open ticket on Support forum.

interested in this theme, just been worried, about people’s comment, hope i won’t have any issue buying it

Thanks :)

Have a nice weekend too.


Please last thing for today, what makes portfolio boxes display in the page i mean on portfolio page, i removed categories, all removed..Thanks

Generally you must select on of portfolio pages template.(two, three or four columns). Additionaly you can specify category or coma separated list of categories witch will be used on this page. If you leave this field empty will be displayed posts from all categories.


I have got a question. When I update the plugins of the theme. I can install some plugins like Contact 7 and Newsletter Sign-Up but it stops at Essential Grid and Visual Composer. I get a warning: The plugin does not have a valid header

Please send me dashboard access on studio@dynamicpress.eu. I have check it with latest evolve version and by me works like a charm. I must check it more detailed.

Ive found the problem. My diskspace of my webhost was full. I was against my limit :) Easy fix.

I’m happy that problem is solved.

Have a nice weekend


Hi, I see theme was updated today. How do I update it from my side? Nothing on my admin panel.

Update is published. You should receive email on your email box.

Not seeing any updates for this in my dashboard!?

For automatic upgrade Themeforest themes you need install Envato Market WP plugin.


Of course you can always update by simply overriding all files via FTP or SFTP. ​ Step 1: Download the “installable theme” from ThemeForest Step 2: Access your server via FTP or SFTP (if you aren’t sure how usually your webhost will have instructions somewhere on their site) Step 3: Browse to wp-content/themes/ Step 4: Delete and override the “dp-evolve” folder files with the new ones downloaded in step 1.

Hey! Very quick quick question. 1st: I love your theme. Its great. Thanks 2nd: I added my Social Media links at the “Social links and contact info” page. But now my problem is:

The Social Media Links open in the same page. It needs to open with a new page. Is that possible?

Did you mena social icon VC element?

Yes. That is correct.

This is to do but with small code change. Please send me email on studio@dynamicpress.eu . I send you patch.
