Hi, logged a call on OlevMedia, kindly assist.

I have an URGENT issue. The homepage throws a 404 error ONLY on the HOME page Error 404 – Not Found Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.

I have the latest WP version and I see you haven’t updated this site in a few years. Is the WP version the problem? I have never had this issue until this year.

Is there a fix for this? ALL other pages save fine. Please advise.

Thank you, Linda


please, check that option “Settings – Reading – Your homepage displays” is set correctly. If it doesn’t help, contact us via support forum and provide temporary access to WP-admin.

is this theme still supported? Asking because it seems it’s been long it was updated


yes, it’s still supported, but I would recommend you our newer event theme Eventerra ( https://themeforest.net/item/eventerra-event-conference-wordpress-theme/15717811 ) instead of this one.


I bought and use your theme Expo 18.

Important question: Is it compatible with Wordpress 5.x and Gutenberg Editor? The last update was 2016.

Kind regards,


Hello Micha,

it’s compatible with WordPress 5.x, but you need to install Classic Editor plugin ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/ ) to make it work correctly.

Possible to add Banners?

in “sidebar-footer-column-center.php” set div class=”full” not one-third ;)

You can add banners into the footer via “Custom HTML” widget.

Thanks I did it ;)

Does this theme support WooCommerce? If not, is it possible to? Thanks.


this theme has no integration with WooCommerce, but it’s possible to add support following this guide: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/third-party-custom-theme-compatibility/#section-1

Also, we have similar theme in our portfolio, which supports WooCommerce out of the box: https://themeforest.net/item/eventerra-event-conference-wordpress-theme/15717811

Hi, thanks for your reply. I’ll check that out. And I was wondering if our current theme (Expo18) will work with latest WP version (4.9.1)?

Yes, it’s compatible with WP 4.9

Next release with option of “No Sidebar” because Event table to narrow

Page layout without sidebar is available. Just choose “Full width page” template when you edit the page.

Next release please make it possible to have the registration button and download button disabled. I would like to use it as an after events page with some Gallery and info about what happend at the event.



if you don’t put any text into “Appearance – Theme Options – Special button: title” and don’t choose the menu for “Secondary Menu” location – these buttons will be disabled.

This is the first time I am doing something in Wordpress, everything worked very well, since I have some experience with HTML and working in CMS-es, but I can’t figure out how to change font size in testimonials.

I edited the font size in style.css and saved it after that inside wordpress editor, but nothing changed. I also changed the color just for test, but again nothing. Am I changing it in the right place? Am I missing a step?

Tnx in advance.

.testimonial .text { display:table-cell; padding:20px 29px; font-size:12px; line-height:130%; color:#7a766d; }

Thank you for the answer, I tried in another browser right away, so yes, it was obviously cache.

BTW I wanted to share page over Facebook, but it pulls the old tagline,not the new one (which is a big problem, since old tagline has wrong date). I tried in different browsers, I tried with Facebook’s debugger, but still the same. Any ideas on this one, please?

Solved :)

Hmm, seems Wordpress 4.8 compatibility is broken. Changing theme options does not save.

Never mind, it appears to happen to be caused by some bad caching. Though it would be nice if the theme included, wp_cache_delete ( ‘alloptions’, ‘options’ ); when changing options.

Is there an add to calendar button? So a visitor can add this event to his own calendar.


there is no such button in the theme, but I suppose you can find some plugin, which could add one.

Possible to put one speaker in one row? Need more space for text and have 5 speakers which makes the speaker page funny looking in this current view.

I installed Page Builder by SiteOrigin and used only code for the picture on the left 30%. On the right I have the text. Looks just the way I want it!

Pre-Purchase question: Does this theme have mail chimp integration?


there is no such feature in this theme.

Hi, how can I change the background to a single image (5px X 950px) and have it repeat horizontally, but not vertically? Thanks.


to achieve it, add this code into “Theme Options – Extra code blocks – Code block for custom CSS”:
body {
  background: url(path_to_image) repeat-x;
.subfooterline-inner {
  background:none !important;

.subfooterline {
  -webkit-box-shadow:none !important;
  -moz-box-shadow:none !important;
  box-shadow:none !important;

Hi, I´ve some problems with the background of my site: http://www.piriapolisdepelicula.com.uy/ The image was not working responsive. Here is a screenshot of the site in the browser: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ryjenpwsa94hf1r/Captura%20de%20pantalla%202017-05-27%2018.35.35.png?dl=0

and here is another screenshot with the browser in another resolution: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1kkmaucwitzc5sk/Captura%20de%20pantalla%202017-05-27%2018.36.27.png?dl=0

The imagen is fixed.

I don´t remember why when I set up the site, 3 years ago, I configured the background option through the extra blocks, and I have this code:

background: url(http://www.piriapolisdepelicula.com.uy/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/background-2017-v2.jpg); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-color:#000000; margin-top: -110px;

Can you help me please? thanks for your support


just add this custom CSS code into extra blocks:
body {
    background-size: 100% auto;

perfect, it works it!!! thanks for your support!! regards

Hi, just a quick question.. is it compatible with the latest WP v4.7 version? Thanks in advance.


yes, it is compatible.

Updated theme last week to Version: 1.1.2 but no more updates showing as available to fix the countdown issue with WP4.5?


the latest version is 1.2.4 (which fixes issues with WP4.5), please, double check it in your downloads section.

WARNING – Don’t upgrade to WP 4.5. It completely blew away the speaker short code for the front page. Would love to know if there is an overall fix for this issue. Thanks

Count down timer missing as well.

The latest version of the theme (1.2.4) is compatible with WordPress 4.5. Just update the theme to the latest version and it will fix these issues.

I updated to vs. 1.2.4 today, and no changes/updates to any parts of the site (pages, countdown timer, slides, etc.) are showing, unless you’re logged in as admin. Time-sensitive info needs posting right away… Need assistance!

The server administrator just found that WordPress was using its cache files. He went into the wp-content/cache folder and moved everything there into a “hold” folder, and it fixed the problem.

We don’t have any caching plugins installed, so is this a theme issue?

Found the problem. The server admin added a cache plugin file that required comet cache, which wasn’t activated. Turning it on has solved the problem.
