It´s there a way to fix that the toggle can go back when you expand the text?

Hi, no problem I will translate these for you and update the theme again with the translations added.


OK, thanks. I have already translated the button “Send” to “Enviar. And at Portfolio instead of “All projects” I added “Proyectos”.

What you have to translate its “Email Sent Successfully. Thank you Alberto Gil, your message has been submitted.” for “Email enviado correctamente. Gracias xxxxxx, te responderemos lo antes posible”.

When I put “xxxxx” its for the name of the person that fulfill the contact form.

Tell me when its done. Thanks.

Hi, An update with the translated strings will be available later on today through ThemeForest.

Also I have added a child theme within the theme package which includes a custom function to allow you to change the transation strings without changing the parent theme code.

This was done to allow you to make changes to the child theme without you changing the parent theme when it gets updated through ThemeForest as it may get overwritten.

Also the child theme will allow you to have more flexiablity as you can add your own custom styles and functions to the child theme code instead of the parent theme.

Hi, I want to change the link of the picture in Services (in the widget which is shown on my homepage). Where can I do that? I can only change the link of the button.

Thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately I allready did this. But now I only change the link of the button, not of the picture. So I have two different links in the same service. I there another way maybe? Hope to hear from you again. Thanks!

I have figured out what the problem is. There is some lines of code missing in functions.php. Which will output the extact same URL as the button for the services image. I will provide you with an update shortly. So you will then have the same URL outputted the same as the button.

Alternatively you can go to functions.php and locate line 1559 and replace the existing code with these lines below:-.

$permalink = get_permalink(); $services_custom_url = isset($ser_meta[‘_jc_services_custom_link’]) && !empty($ser_meta[‘_jc_services_custom_link’]) ? $ser_meta[‘_jc_services_custom_link’] : $permalink; Make sure you replace these lines only as you my encounter an error.

if( has_post_thumbnail() ){ ?>
<figure class="center-wrap img-icon">
        echo ' ';
        echo get_the_post_thumbnail(
            array(115, 100)
        echo ' ';

Thanks, I will wait for your update ;-) It is the safest option haha.

How do I change the type of font in the primary menu? I have changed all of them in the typography settings and it still won’t change?

Hi, Thanks for purchasing my theme. I have addressed the issue regarding the primary menu font style. You will receive an update shortly through ThemeForest. This will include new fields added to theme options to panel to allow you to change the tyogrpahy for the top bar menu and primary menu. These can be found under top bar menu and primary menu tabs.

Kind Regards


I viewed your demo on my phone and the lettering is getting cut off by the photos, such as IOS 7 CONCEPT is cut off at the bottom by the SWAPP image. I also resized the demo in Google Chrome down to mobile phone size, and it does the same thing. I am interested in making a purchase, however, not if this cannot be fixed beforehand. I will await your reply. Thanks.

Follow-Up: I removed the Envato frame from the demo and that fixed this issue. Sorry.


For some reason the Envato iFrame removes responsive features on the theme no matter what browser or device you are using. There is no issue with the images being cut of when the Iframe is removed.

Thank you for having interest in this theme.

For the home page, how do I remove/minimize the space between the primary bar and the first element of visual composer. I have removed the image for static front page, but it still shows it.



To fix the image logo I recommend you to change the size of your image using CSS.

Alternatively you can change the image dimensions of your logo so it will fit within the navbar.

Recommended image size for a logo is around about 100px x 50px. You can do this will Photoshop if you wish. But a quick way is to change the size of your logo using CSS.

To do this you will need to open up screen.css located in folder assets>css and located lines 801 and line 7504 and change the max-width from 80% to 25%.

Here is the CSS you will need to change below:-

.site-logo img{
    max-width: 80%;
.site-logo img{
    max-width: 25%;

How do I change the font color in the body of paragraph? It does not have an option in the typography settings.

Hi, To enable the body paragraph font color option you will need to go to framework>options>config>setting-config.php and locate line 893 and change the color parameter to (bool) true. E.g. shown below

change this:- ‘color’ => false

to this:-
'color' => true

Once set to (bool) true a new colorpicker field will be visible to you. This will allow you to change the body paragraph text to your desired color.

Thank you jono. where do I locate the framework>options>config>setting-config.php

Sorry, I am not the most savvy computer guy. Slightly competent


To locate the folder name framework>options>config>settings.-config.php is within the main theme package flatsum_wp folder. You can find this on your server when you make the edit.

To found the main theme folder flatsum_wp you will need to go to folder wp_content>themes>flatsum_wp

Open up settings-config.php and locate line 893 to change the parameter to (bool) true.

Once changed to (bool) true you will have a colorpicker visible to you under the body font typography settings in theme options.

Hello, Nice WP theme :) Got a short question : is it possible to disable the NiceScroll plugin to get a classic scrollbar ? Kind regards, Ben

Hi there, Thank you for purchasing my theme. I hope you like it.

The theme does not currently let you disable the NiceScroll plugin.

But I have just added a new setting option in theme options to allow you to disable the plugin and use the browsers native scrollbars instead.

I have applied an update with new files which will be available shortly to download via ThemeForest.

Kind Regards John


I can’t get any icons to show up for the Services widgets and pages. I’ve looked around everywhere in settings and can’t see what the problem could be.

Thanks, Josh

Hi there,

To get the icons to show on the services widget. Navigate to services post type and select the meta-box called Services Settings. From there select the dropdown field called Custom font icon.

Here you have a list of font icons to choose from, which will show for each service that is created.

Please note this setting will not work if you have uploaded an icon image because the image icon setting overrides the font icon font settings.

I have addressed some minor issues with the services widget, and changes can be viewed via ThemeForest or in the changelog file.

There will be an update with updated files, which will be available to download shortly through ThemeForest.

Kind Regards
