This is my 3rd time either recommending or buying this theme. From my perspective. Forgiven > Eden with everything but the page builder and a few bugs. Please consider updating this theme so I can continue to recommend it.

Thanks so much, I will definitely be updating Forgiven soon. Thanks for recommending it!

Hi, are you going to release an update for this so that it will work with the latest version of VC and WP?

What exactly is not working?

Sorry, I went ahead and did the update and it seems to be working just fine :) Kudus to making a theme that doesn’t easily break when updating :) Thanks.

Haha, great!

Can you provide us with a changelog for this theme? Can’t find it anywhere … Thanks!

Your latest theme update isn’t being detected by Wordpress as being available, leaving manual installation as the only option.

Should be now, sorry about that.

I seem to be stuck on Version 2.1.01. I think there has been updates since then as I have emails showing updates available, but they never show up on Wordpress?? Very happy with the theme but I wish i could update it.

After that version, the update server was changed. You will need to download the theme from ThemeForest (from your Downloads page) to get the latest version again. From then on, you will be able to update the theme again.

Hi, are there any demo files included to replicate the demo content?

I have downloaded and uploaded the Forgiven theme. However, the Slider Revolution nor Visual Composer are not activated and I do not have and/or can’t locate the code in the files I downloaded.I have sent support messages. Please help!

Go to Appearance > Install Plugins to install these included plugins.

Revolution Slider Update? WP is not prompting to update it and since it was bundled with Forgiven, I can’t seem to figure out how to update it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can update it manually, but I can only provide the link to do so via a support ticket. You will need to extend support and submit a ticket, or simply purchase a Slider Revolution license and you can get the updates much more easily:

I like your theme and I especially interested in the calendar design and the compatibility with the The Events Calendar. Is it also compatible with the The Events Calendar PRO? I would like to use the weekly view. Do you have a link to see a full calendar within this theme? The link from the site seems to be broken Many thank in advance!

Hi, I installed Forgiven over a year ago before going on maternity leave. Now on my return I’m trying real hard to get the update working. With the gorgeous orange theme, rather than the purple and yellow. I re-downloaded and tried to reinstall the DEMo all xml but says I’ve already got all the files and the rest are errors. Just doing it on WP. Could you please help me? Thank you.

What you need is to go to the Appearance > Theme Options and Import the options that now come with the demo, this should replace your colors with the new version.

Hi boxy, in our comment sections of the blog and sermon pages, when people comment is doesn’t show their name. I have tried a basic Wordpress theme and it seams to work. Are you able to fix this?

Okay, I’ll be releasing an update to fix this but feel free to make the following adjustment:

Open: /forgiven/_ctc_framework/includes/comments.php

And comment out the very last line there that starts with add_filter…

Thank you, your themes from Rebirth and Savior in the past have been a blessing but this Forgiven one is brilliant.

Awesome, thanks so much! :)

Hi BoxyStudio, what is the timeline for deploying the update fixing the comment issue described by peterjgordon?

Sorry, I’m not seeing all of the comments in my feed. Do you mean the bug where the name is not appearing?

I do have this fixed, but need to work through a few more bugs before pushing out a new update. It should be soon!

yes, great thanks!!

Hi Boxy Studio, question about the Forgiven Facebook Feed: there a way to change the Forgiven Facebook Feed font colors? the F logo and date are displayed in a color that’s not readable without selecting the text. 2. the From is not pulling an user or Facebook name. Is that normal?

This is possible with some custom CSS but I would need to see the site to know what you would need to add.

Thanks Boxy Studio, the main website is The Forgiven Feed was added in the blog Please feel free to let me know if we need to extend the support for the license for this. We appreciate your work and the value of the theme.

Sorry I didn’t respond sooner, you must have changed the page since then, I’m not seeing the Facebook feed here anymore:

Where is the changelog for the theme? I don’t see it in the download. Id like to see what changes were made in this most recent version.


Pre Sale Question: Header Customisable.

Just regarding the header and logo. Is there an option for the logo to be on the same level as the Nav, EG Left Aligned Logo and Nav on the right?


Yep, there’s an option for that:


¿Does this theme have the option to track and have statistics about the pdf and mp3 downloads?

No, sorry.

I think others who have purchased this theme and future purchasers would super appreciate the option in the theme options to choose a width for the site. In my option, 904px width is just too narrow these days. 1200px seems perfect for this theme. maybe at least consider it?

Agreed. Forgiven will be getting a major update this year at some point.


Would you consider adding Flickr to the social set accessible in Appearance > Theme Options > Socials & Search?

I’ll add it to my list of to dos!

I love this theme and have used it before. However, on my latest site, the Fusion Builder plugin seems to be causing problems. When activated, it removes all the content from the front end, just showing blank pages. When deactivated, it just shows the code. I tried to contact support a couple days ago but never heard back.

Hello, Just wondering if it is possible to organize/filter sermons by year? I want to use the website for an annual conference and keep all those sermons together by year.
