how to add page no sidebar


Unfortunately it’s not possible to have a page without the sidebar in this theme.

Hi again. I thought the update from 4 February 21 fixed the bug with embedded videos. I do not know what happened but for now they have the lot of empty space about that as before.

I will send you a message via your profile with an example link.

Regards, r.

I will take a look at it :)

Nice to hear this. I will hope you can find the issue.

I just replied to your email :)

Love this theme. But I have found 2 bugs with WP 5.6.

1. There is no distance downwards when I use the delimiter (screenshot: https://share.getcloudapp.com/YEuX81yN ).

2. There is also a bug with embedded videos. They have a lot of empty space about that (screenshot https://share.getcloudapp.com/yAu6o2D6 ).

May be you have a fix for this?

Regards, r.

Sorry, bu one more from me.

The theme has the option to blend out the tags on the blog. Is there a way to blend out them also on the single posts?

And another one: Is there a way to show only the excerpts on homepage and not the full post?

Thanks and regards, r.


There is no option to hide tags on single posts. Could you just not use tags at all if you don’t want to display them anywhere? :)

To show only a part of an article on the main page, you must use the Read More tag. This way you can split your post anywhere you like.

Here are the instructions for the classic editor: https://wordpress.com/support/wordpress-editor/blocks/more-block/2/ And here for the block editor: https://wordpress.com/support/wordpress-editor/blocks/more-block/

Understanding, thanks. :)

There are no options to add in social media links. The Float Options only has a analytics box, where do I add my socials urls into?


You can add social media links with a menu.

Go to Appearance → Menus or Appearance → Customize → Menus. Create a new menu. Insert your links with the Custom Links option.

When you insert for example a link which URL includes text facebook.com, theme automatically converts it to a Facebook icon.

Now you can use this menu in the sidebar using the widget Float: Social Links at Appearance > Widgets.

Please renew you support license.

Hello, is it possible to adjust the width of the content column? ... and what about the right sidebar?


You can adjust widths if you modify the CSS file. However, customizing the theme is not part of the support, so you are on your own :)

Hello , is it working with RTL and support google adsense ?


This theme does not have RTL support.

You can use widgets and plugins to insert ads.

BODY BG: is it gray? does it have gray color? I’il take it if it’s gray. I don’t want black.


You can set the background image and color as anything you like.

2018 update ? Theme not updated since 2014 ? C’mon..


There are no plans for the next update. Is there something that needs to be updated? :)


I want to buy this Theme for my personaly Blog. Is there any active support here?

greets Tobias


Yes, there is support :)

Perfect. :) I will buy this Design in the next few days.

Hello, Tried translating Default language file (default.po) using POEdit to swedish manually. but not replicating in site. Tried creating new .mo (default-sv_SE) and replaced even current language file with new one. But it shows only english terms.


Did you read the documentation, chapter 3. TRANSLATING THEME?

You should save the translated file as sv_SE.po

You can skip the last step on that chapter. You don’t have to add the language code in wp-config.php anymore. Instead do the following in the WordPress dashboard:

Go to Settings > General, and choose Svenska as the Site Language.

Hi. I purchased your theme and am having a technical issue trying to do something that I feel should be easy. My site is www.survivorsstill.com for reference.

What I am trying to do is get it so that guests / people can comment on a blog from the main landing page. If you look, you’ll see that there is the “comments” bubble in the top-right corner of each post, but when you scroll to the bottom of that post there is no option or link to click to leave a reply.

I need a link there, as most people don’t know that when on that page they need to click the title of the blog post to “take them into the actual post” where the post a reply comment section is, and would like it so they can reply right on the main page there where all the most recent blog postings are, or at least have a link at the bottom that will take them into the actual blog posting and queue up the reply form.

Can you please let me know how to do this? Other than that love the theme.


I replied to your email :)


Quick pre-sale Q, The description says it’s translation ready, are all strings translatable? We work with poedit, do the .po files come with the theme or do we need to generate the string xml after install?

Thank you in advance!


Yes, all strings are translatable.

Yes, .po file is included with the theme. All you need to do is open the file with Poedit, and translate the strings one by one.

There are 159 strings, but most of them are used only in the WordPress dashboard. So, the theme itself is pretty easy to translate :)

Thank you for the quick reply!


how can I properly format blockquotes with empty lines in between? Every time I leave an empty line the quote ends and begins.

That’s how it looks (http://imgur.com/0aeSoyl) and that’s how I want the text format to look (http://imgur.com/Y9pbahx).

Anything I can do?



Could you contact me via my profile page, so I can reply to you with the required CSS changes :)

Really liking this theme but disappointed in the lack of an option to have “share to social media” icons attached to each post. That way readers can click a button to quickly and easily share to facebook, twitter, etc…

Is there something I’m not seeing or do you know an easy way to accomplish this? Really a pretty common thing that should be added to an update sooner than later if not possible already.


There are lots of plugins for sharing posts. That’s the reason why it is not built-in :)

You can find the plugins at: https://wordpress.org/plugins/

Here’s one I have used: https://wordpress.org/plugins/add-to-any/

You can install plugins at Plugins > Add New.

Hi… I wanted to add a slider at the top and I did so but it would only position above the blog portion—not sidebar.

Can you direct me on the editor page what the code should be to insert the revolution slider? hopefully not too complicated?

thank you!



It is complicated because the theme is designed for two separate columns.

Please send me a mail via my profile page. Tell me where you want the slider, is it just for a single page/post etc.

Hi… thank you so much for replying quickly. I will email you now. I purchased FLOAT and need the slider on the HOME PAGE only.

Hi there, I just bought your theme, tried to install it but it failed with this error message Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

say’s there’s n o style.css

Ok, got that fixed. I have another problem though, How do I add a “like” button to the posts? and Is there a way to make the menu’s to appear horizontally rather that the drop-down style which it is right now?

Do you have a skype which I could add for easy reach?

You can use a plugin for the Like button. Here’s one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/floating-social-bar/

There are many other social sharing plugins available, if that one isn’t suitable.

Using the drop-downs is fully optional.

Hi… just bought the theme… wondering how to upload a favicon? Thank you!


Upload the favicon via FTP to the theme folder.

There are also plugins for this, if you don’t want to use FTP :)

https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-favicon/ https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-favicon/

Easy enough! Thank you!

How can I change the color of the font in my menu by my logo?

No problem :)

.nav-ul > li > a { color: #d8dadc; }

For some reason that’s still not working. Do you have any other suggestions, or do we need to change the background a bit? Thanks again and sorry for the trouble!

Did you change the value for color? #d8dadc is the default value, which I used in the example.

You need something darker, like #333333.

Hi, I’m having a difficult time with embedding a Youtube Video. I may be doing it wrong. I’m getting the “iFrame” embed code from youtube and putting into the post. However it is not responsive. When I shrink the screen down the video does not scale down with it like the sample on your site. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had a chance to check this out yet? Is support still being provided for this theme?

I just sent you an email. Sorry for the late reply :)
