I am having trouble with the mobile view it would seem, it’s just using your default CSS but it’s not working as expected on my Sony Xperia Z3; it’s fine on a desktop though.

The issue is that it cuts off the book cover image, when you pinch with fingers to reduce screen size to see all of the image, it then shows a lot of blank space to the right of the page (reduces rest of page but you can see the image). Also, the loading bars appear off-center slightly to the right when first loading page.

Can you please take a peek and let me know what you think? You can see this happening on the themeforest preview so no need to send my website at present. If you need a screenshot, I can email to you.

Greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks, Matt

Hi there, I have just tried adding this theme through wordpress and godaddy and the error is still coming back about the css style sheet missing. I have followed 3 articles to fix this through envato and read all your support answers. None have worked. Can you please assist. I’m about to be bald from pulling my hair out!!! Muchas Gracias!!

I keep seeing this:

Broken Themes

The following themes are installed but incomplete.

I entered my email into the mailer.php file, but I’m not receiving the test messages that I sent to myself through the site. Also, how would I go about changing the Phone field to one where the site visitor can enter their own subject line?

I got the mail form working and, for anyone else having a problem not receiving email submitted through your contact form, check to see if your web host permits you to use an email address that isn’t associated with your domain. I was trying to use an Outlook address and I had to switch to one that was specific to my domain in order to get the form to work.


Thanks for sharing this with everyone.The mail function in your localhost can indeed filterout external E-mail addresses.

In this case you either use the domain related E-mail address or Google Mail server (SMTP).

For some reason the counter on the homepage won’t display the number 207. It keeps showing it as 206. Can you please look into this?


I’m not sure why that’s happening.And it seems to happen only with 207. I will look into it and get back to you. :)

I would like the the Choose a Page tablet section to show images on the tablet instead of text when each of the page links are clicked. Can you please tell me how to accomplish that? Also, I would like to remove the scroll feature from the tablet.

Never mind, I managed to get it working on my own.


Thanks for your purchase.

My sincerest apologies for the late reply. Glad it worked out!

Cheers, Hamza

Background slider is not showing in Edge and Firefox, it does in Chrome. See: www.beterbeleggendandebank.nl


The background slider is link is broken :

#site-header { background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0) url("https://demo.eriktailor.com/flatbook-wordpress/demo-2/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2016/01/header_bg.jpg") no-repeat scroll 100% 100% !important; }

You are going to have to change this link inside the homepage is file:

Hi there. When I try to upload the theme to wordpress it says “can’t upload because it is missing style.css” yet, there is style.css in the folder?


Unfortunately, you have purchased the HTML Template version.The Wordpress version can be found in the link below: https://themeforest.net/item/flatbook-flat-ebook-selling-wordpress-theme/6023410

Cheers, Hamza

I can not install the theme on wordpress, because the “Stylesheet style.css.” is missing.

Can you give me the money back or a theme which works?

I am looking forward to your answer

Best wishes

Hi Benjamin,

Unfortunately you purchased the static HTML version of this product. The Wordpress version can be found in the link below: https://themeforest.net/item/flatbook-flat-ebook-selling-wordpress-theme/6023410

Cheers, Erik

Is there any way to get this in a way to upload it to the theme upload feature in Wordpress? I bought this not realizing you wanted me to FTP it to my server and it’s not working. I can only make themes work through the uploader. Thanks.


Thanks for your purchase and sorry for the confusion. This a static html template and it doesn’t have the tags required for it to work on Wordpress. I created a Wordpress version also of the theme, that you can find in the link below: https://themeforest.net/item/flatbook-flat-ebook-selling-wordpress-theme/6023410

Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik, I have a problem to show youtube videos. If I change the vimeo link with the youtube one, video doesn’t show out. Can you please help me?

Hi Manuela, thanks for your purchase! Can you send me over your actual html files in email to see what’s going on there? Cheers, Erik

On certain mobile devices using Opera/Chrome browsers, I see an issue with the navbar where it is wider than the screen width in portrait mode.

If you use Chrome desktop browser in developer mode and use iPhone 6 device mode, you can see that the width is 375px but the navbar width is 475px for your demo site: http://demo.eriktailor.com/flatbook-html/

This is the exact issue I have on a few mobile devices that I have for testing.

Please advise. Thanks!

Sorry, probably I have marked your email as read, but missed the reply :( I see what you are pointing at, however I don’t think that the Chrome Dev Tool’s iPhone 6 emulator would be the base ground to trust, what happens if you check the site on a real phone? As far as I experienced, this issue doesn’t occur… Any thoughts? Cheers, Erik

Hi, it does occur on phones and I already fixed it for my own site since your CSS definition sets it to 460px for the home page which causes the white space on the left.

Great to hear that you have solved it. Can you share us the css modification you made? I would integrate your fix in the next theme update.

Cheers, Erik

Hi Erik,

I have some problems getting my video to show in flatbook, I have tried to both replace my youtube url and my vimeo url, and I can see in the code, that the video is there, but it is not showing ? – Hope you can help

Best regards Daniel

Hello Daniel, can you please drop me a comment (from the account you purchased the theme with) first? Cheers, Erik

I’m attempting to modify the colour scheme but when I attempt to compile the scss files I receive the error “Error: File to import not found or unreadable: bootstrap.” from line 75 of ”/assets/sass/_flatbook.scss”

Hi, thanks for your purchase. Please try to compile it with Compass software, and get back to me with the result. Cheers, Erik

$ compass compile assets
    error assets/sass/flatbook_blue.scss (Line 75 of assets/sass/_flatbook.scss: File to import not found or unreadable: bootstrap.


Sorry to bother you on this. I know this is just basic CSS, but I am having trouble on replacing the font type on this section (please see image on this link: http://prntscr.com/acrf9w)

Thank you Lyrad graphic designer web dev newbie hehehehe

Hello, thanks for your purchase. No problem, i’m happy to help if i can, but i’m gonna need more details about what are you trying to achieve with the highlighted paragraph. Also a link to your site would be nice. Cheers, Erik

Hi, I noticed an issue where the ebook preview isn’t scrollable on my iPhone. It works on the demo that’s on themeforest.net, but not in the files that I downloaded (v2.0.5). You can see what I’m talking about, if you have an iPhone (mine is 6s), at this URL: http://mikesgarage.dreamhosters.com/. Do you have a fix for this?

Thanks! Like the template.


Sorry Mike, you were right – the script in the download wasn’t updated – so i just pushed an update with the new script, you will be notified in email once it’s available for download (currently it’s in the review queue). Cheers, Erik

That fixed it. Thanks for quick reply Erik.

Sure, no problem! :P Cheers, Erik


I’m having some responsive design errors that I’m encountering on my website. Could you contact me for details please?

Best wishes, Janik

Hi and thanks for your purchase! Sure, if you’d prefer email, please contact me via my themeforest profile’s contact form here. Cheers, Erik

Hi, can I use this on blogger? thank you!

Hi, what’s that and why would you need to use there? :) Cheers, Erik

Hi, I got the page up in about an hour! (http://www.saferpatients.com/knowledge/cms/Product/cms-toolkit.html) but am having two problems that I did not find in the doc:

1. Where are the social icons – they are not loading for me 2. What am I missing with the form? I see where you set the address in mailer.php but I don’t see any standard form to link to?. 3. Why doesn’t the menu across the top show by default?

Thank you!

Hello and thanks for your purchase!

1.) What social icons are you pointing at? Just checked your site, and your social media icons in the footer shows up fine for me.

2.) The form is located in the hidden dropdown section, what is activated when the user click on the “Contact Steve Harden…” button just above the footer in your case.

3.) Your menu stays on the top by default, but it can be only visible when the user clicks on the menu toggle button on the right side of the navbar.

Cheers, Erik

Hey Erik!

I bought the template a while back, and it’s working fine, but i want to make a little conversion adjustment in the coding and don’t know where to do that.

How can I make it so that the menu is already open when someone visits the site?


Hello and thanks for your purchase. Actually this is an option in the wordpress version of flatbook, however you can try this:

1.) Open up your /js/custom.js file
2.) Comment out line 35-48
3.) Finally add this to line 61:

Cheers, Erik

Perfect, works like a charm. Thanks

Cool, your welcome ;)

Hi, in the template’s description I saw that there should be psd files in the template http://joxi.ru/G1c9VP3JTJCWBQz9kLs . But they are absent in archive ): Can U help me with this? It is realy uncomforatable to work with this only http://joxi.ru/UVc9VIwyTJADb3VtyhM

Hello and thanks for your purchase. I’m afraid you have missed something, actually the highlighted feature keyword on your reference screenshot is mentioning “PHP Files” not “PSD Files”... Sorry for the misunderstanding. Cheers, Erik

Ooo, U are right, sorry. Thanks for the great work (:

Nevermind, i’m happy you like it :) Cheers, Erik
