Hello, I just purchased this and uploaded the zip file to my “themes” area in WP. Right now my store/blog/website is running on WooCommerce/Wootique. I clicked view live preview, as I’d like to get a peek before I start switching everything over and all I get is the following: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wordpress_importer_init() (previously declared in /home/content/84/11768184/html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-importer/wordpress-importer.php:1123) in /home/content/84/11768184/html/wp-content/themes/forte/functions/lib/wordpress-importer/wordpress-importer.php on line 1113

What does this mean? Have I done something wrong? Michelle

okay I got it activated but it did not create the pages that you mention in your install forte video? I apologize in advance, I can fudge my way through most things but am not super computer savvy like yourself :) HELP PLEASE :)

oops! I did forget to say that all my menus and pages are still intact, but says that my theme only allows 1 menu ?

Hi, sorry, I’m not sure to understand. The only page created by default is Forte temporary home and Forte temporary blog. If you need more example page you have to import the demo file http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/forte/import-data/

Forte has only a main menu, but you can create as many menu as you want to display, for instance, inside widgets.

If I’m missing something please forgive me and let me know.

Contact form – Captcha not working correctly.

Forte theme Versie: 2.4.5 Server: No SuPHP, so might be a permission problem?


The Captcha shows incorrect every first time (and only the first time). After trying again it works just fine.

The ussue exists on two of my contact forms. One simple and one more complex.

I hope to hear from you soon. You can also contact me here: info [/AT/] grafion [/dot/] nl.

Greetings, Gantar

Just sent an email :-)

And I did send you an email response :)

Hi there,

WooCommerce related question. I upload my client’s products through the CSV import plugin. These new product pages have the ‘inherit’ sidebar and I need to have the ‘WooCommerce default sidebar’. How do I accomplish this one?

Regards, CP

Hi Manuel,

well the ‘WooCommerce archive pages and product pages sidebar’ is set already in the ‘WooCommerce default sidebar’ and everywhere is set the Default template, not the Wide one. But still get this wide page effect in SOME of single products. :S I can’t make a connection why this is happening as all products have a title&&description only, so leave it for time being.

Another thing/proposal: A global “Disable Tabs” control. I just needed that and it’s really easy as you can see here.

Regards, CP


if you were able to let me enter your admin I could better understand. Honestly it is not clear for me what the problem is, sorry. If you agree, contact me via email and remind me this discussion too: manu[at]pixedelic.com

About the WooCommerce filters: you can add all the filters you prefer. Just create this directory and this file:

wp-content / forte_includes / includes.php

The names are very important: the theme checks if the directory and the file exist and in this case it uses them. If you update the theme you don’t need to create the file again, since it is not in the theme folder.

On that file you can add all the filter and php functions you prefer.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Thanks about the tip for custom filters! ;)

I uploaded once more some products and the issue remains! Inherited sidebar & Deafult template, but in the end there’s full width product pages. I altered all manually. I send you an email with WP credentials to see for yourself.

Cheers, CP

Hi, in the shop appear 3 filters, Order by, Show, in show i need only the categories of the shop. Actually show me the categories and tags. I don’t find to change to only cats

Actually the “Show” filter displays product tags only, without hacking the code there’s no way to display categories too, I’m sorry.

Manuel :-)

I don’t find the code to change to categories. Can help me?

In loop-first.php, -second.php and -third.php, since the line:

if ( $pix_sort_by_tag == 'true' )

Below you can see:

if ( $the_post_type == 'portfolio') {
    $terms_ar = get_the_terms( $post->ID, 'portfolio_tag' ); 
} elseif ( $the_post_type == 'product') {
    $terms_ar = get_the_terms( $post->ID, 'product_tag' ); 
} else {
    $terms_ar = get_the_tags( $post->ID ); 

Are you searching that, I guess.

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel

I have a big problem with my site, it’s not working, haven’t changed anything in a good while so not sure what it could be. I am getting a message from woo commerce though on the WP dashboard, it says the theme doesn’t work with woo commerce?

Hi and sorry for the late reply,

actually you have changed a lot of things :-) You updated Wordpress to version 3.7.1 and WooCommerce to 2.0.19: so you’re running the latest versions for both, but still have installed Forte 2.0.2, released in February. I made a lot of changes and improvements to keep the theme compatible with Wordpress and WooCommerce in particular: http://www.pixedelic.com/forte_current_version_changelog.php

So please, update the theme too and let me know: http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/forte/support/forums/topic/update-forte/

Manuel :-)

Thank you Manuel, all updated and it seems fine. Thanks for your time, still loving the theme and glad I’ve got it sorted! Keep up the great work

Thank you too Richard :-)

Hi, I really like this theme and before purchasing it I wanted to ask:

Is it possible to also put slide shows and videos on this page as well?


Thanks in advance!


the portfolio items have the same page builder of a static page, so you can put inside them whatever you want (even if with some limitations, for instance you can’t display a gallery shortcode inside a portfolio items, because it would create some conflicts with pagination).

The gallery pages display the featured image from the standard portfolio items, but you can set a portfolio item as “gallery” or “video” (take a look to the 12th and the 4th item here http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/forte/blog/gallery/portfolio/ ). The portfolio items set as “gallery type” display the default gallery shortcode of Wordpress as basic slideshow. But if you want you can put inside the content (though invisible in the gallery page), more complex slideshow or videos… hope this explanation makes sense.

Manuel :-)

how to resize related item it’s to big in px px

Hi, sorry… can you show me what related items you’re talking about please?

Manuel :-)

Hi, I am thinking of buying this theme. I refer to the page below:


Question on the slideshow. What are the widths that I can customize it to? Ideally I would like it to be the same width as shown on the demo page above, but just wanted to confirm. A similar theme I was working with earlier had the same demo width but when I put it on my site it didn’t take up the whole width of the page…

Just another thought, would also like to know if you include demo content with the theme, so that I can replace the sample images with my own and would be ready to go…

Hi gadurr,

the slideshow can be fullwidth, fullscreen or fitting the layout (it means as large as the column of the page builder).

A sample content is included, but it isn’t a copy of the demo site: the content is instead taken from http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/forte/dummy/ (a demo home page, with some elements of the demo site, is autogenerated when you install Forte the first time).

Manuel :-)

A great theme for any site!

I have 2 questions:
1. How to see what’s new in the update of the theme?
2. Can I use this theme for my multisite?

About multisite – - the question is removed. Did not see in the description that there is support for WPMU


1. if you go to the Forte admin panel, on the header of the panel itself, there is a link to the changelog: http://www.pixedelic.com/forte_current_version_changelog.php

2. yes, you’re right, also the demo is a WPMU installation.

Manuel :-)

hi Manuel, how can i insert alt=”” in the imagen background slider? it’s very important for me, Do i have to edit pix-shortcode.php

thanks a lot

I’m sorry, there’s no image in the html unfortunately. The URL of the images are passed via Javascript and the IMG tag also created via jQuery, the search engines don’t see that part.

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

I sent you a mail follow up to an issue solved 19 days ago. The email has the following subject: “[forte] Issues with attribute selector”. However, the problem is:

When selecting “ninth” or “tenth” layout for Woocommerce products shortcode, e.g. in recent_products or featured_products, it ignores sorting and order (it always sorts by oldest to newest regardless). Also it does not respect the items per page (always shows max. 10 items). Other layouts I tested work just fine and honor the attributes in the shortcode.

Sorry, forgot to reply, my apologies.

However I’m working on that issue and I hope to release soon an update that fixes it.

Manuel :-)

Oh my God, Manuel, so many congratulations on your little boy!!!

You’re a trooper for being so available at this time! So yes, I’m going to bother you again, forgive me ;)

I’d like to hide/delete the little icons on buttons and the home button in the breadcrumbs. For instance the cart icon on the add to cart button and the read more button and the other buttons where icons appear. Is there a CSS for that?

Thank you so much and enjoy your little boy!

Greetz, Janet

Hi Janet (and thank you :-))

About the question: of course there’s a way to hide the icons, not a general way (that is dangerous) but by editing one by one the elements you want.

For instance, the home in the breadcrumbs:

#breadcrumbs .home {
display: none;

The icons on the buttons:

.entry-meta .button {
padding-right: 1em;
.entry-meta .button:before,
.read-more i {
display: none!important;

Add these lines of code into Forte admin panel -> Styles.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

Works like a charm, except for the cart icon on the add to cart button, that one really wants to stay there…

Also, is there a ‘letmebe’ css for the whole site for hiding overlay+border+icon when hovering on linked images? Works quicker then having to put letmebe for every image separately in the advanced link settings.

Do you have a magic solution?

Thank you! Janet

Hi Janet,

this is the code for the cart icon, sorry:

.single_add_to_cart_button:before {
content: '';

And, for the hover effect, on the FAQs I posted what another user kindly shared: http://themeforest.net/item/forte-multipurpose-wp-theme-ecommerce-ready/3888979/support

Manuel :-)

Hi! I actually purchased this on another account, before I realized ThemeForest and CodeCanyon were one and the same.

I was wondering if there’s any way to disable the default light box? I’d like to use a different light box with another plugin and right now both light boxes are popping up.

Thanks! :) And going by the comment above, congratulations!! :D

No prob :-)

I din’t provide a switcher, sorry, but you can disable ColorBox with some lines of javascript code. Go to Forte -> General -> Footer -> “Append something to the footer (Google Analytics script or anything else)” and type:


Let me know

Manuel :-)

Sadly it’s still popping up in the background occasionally and the second lightbox (carousel) seems to be triggering it. Is there a particular script it’s running from that maybe I can wp_dequeue_script()? Worst comes to worst, is there a particular line of code in the theme files I could knock out?

Thanks again!

Oh, and one more question: What would be the best way to go about disabling the hover image? (The magnifying glass rectangle over images)

Sorry, can you show me the issue? Is it possible to see a page with the ColorBox active please?

About the icons over the images, on the Support page, FAQs section, there are some info: http://themeforest.net/item/forte-multipurpose-wp-theme-ecommerce-ready/3888979/support

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi, I can’t get testimonials to show up on my home page.

Also where can I find testimonial id’s?

The testimonial IDs are visible in the URL of the testimonial itself (from the backend, of course) or by installing this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/reveal-ids-for-wp-admin-25/

To show the testimonials just use the shortcode generated by this button: https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/qgw6?size=o

Can you better explain me what the problem is? Do you receive an error message?

Manuel :-)

I am using the shortcode via page builder on my home page (also tried on test page with no result); I don’t get any error messages, it just doesn’t appear. Also, I flushed the cache on server and in browser after making changes.

Thanks for plugin advise, didn’t know something like this existed.

The theme took some time to get used, but has been a very smooth experience which has become a robust customization tool, thanks for rapid response and continued development. :)

Do you do customizations/extentions, if so where can I make the inquiry?


I’m sorry, I don’t make customizations, I can only suggest services like http://goo.gl/9VB9DX (never tried, but other users did).

About the problem with the testimonials: it could depend on many things, but I should take a look… is that possible? Could you contact me via email and provide some details (also remind me this discussion): manu[at]pixedelic.com

Manuel :-)


How can I edit the title section of the woocommerce category pages? I would like to show the category image as a large background instead of a 45×45 icon. I would like to do this without editing or affecting the pix_functions.php or the pix_woocommerce.php files so that my changes are not overwritten when the theme is updated to a newer version. I see in the admin panel that there is an option to set the “Title section background” for WooCommerce but even when I set this, nothing happens.


I don’ know sorry, it depends on the changes of WooCommerce and their updates.

Manuel :-)

Thanks Manuel, I can’t seem to get the override-function to work. I am getting errors. Can you let me know what should be included in the code.

Please, contact me via email and provide WP and FTP details… it is hard provide the right function without testing on your server. Is that possible? Also remind me this discussion: manu[at]pixedelic.com

Manuel :-)

Hi… Is there a way of randomly generating the order of the home page slider images. I need them appearing differently every time the home page is loaded…


I’m sorry, no, there isn’t. You should hack the shortcode and add a “shuffle” function via PHP.

Manuel :-)

Good work. How can i make the order on my shop page to be by name by default ?



you can select the default order on Woocommerce -> Settings -> Catalog

Manuel :-)

Hello! How can I disable the “Hover image effect” for all images on site???? Thanks!

Hi, on the FAQ section I posted some lines of code provided by another user: http://themeforest.net/item/forte-multipurpose-wp-theme-ecommerce-ready/3888979/support

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Manuel, Many customers can’t find my store? I am wondering if it is the device they are using or if the “SHOP” icon is just to small. What are your thoughts? www.goatsrockranch.com


you should reduce the width of the logo area (I mean site title and subtitle area). Forte has got a responsive/adaptive layout, so, if the logo area plus the menu area is wider than the layout, the regular menu turn into a drop down box.

Try and let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel, My site Modrec-NA.com is showing info on the search engine google that I don’t want and I don’t know how to fix.

Like this: ... My Account/Register” class=”menu-item menu-item-type-custom menu-item- object-custom menu-item-4560” data-href=”https://modrec-na.com/my-account/”> ...

And this: Blog Features, Product … Modrec-NA.com. Click on a picture to view it’s content. Modrec-NA …

And is only on google please help and advise will be appreciated. Y

Hi Yayita,

the search engine bot seems to have kept some content from the menu, maybe when you were working on the home page. You only have to optimize the SEO fields, you can also use a plugin to do that, like All in One SEO or similar.

Manuel :-)

Thanks Manuel will work on it :)
