Hi manuel Tanx for your nice theme.

I would like to exclude a category (sharing) in the blog page to create a new blog page only reserved for this category (Sharing). I want to try the <? php / * Start the Loop * /?>   <php query_posts (‘cat = -1’) while (have_posts ()): the_post ();?> but I do not see where I should place ca code in the index.php file. I tried many things but without success. Can you help me please ? buono giorno :)

The loop of the posts, portfolio items and products too is due to three different files (it depends on the layout you want to use): loop-first.php, loop-second.php and loop-third.php

But, to be honest, it is very complicate to customize these files. I think you should, instead, use the shortcode and display your posts in this way: it allows to decide what category to display: https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/me8j?size=o

Hello Manuel and thank you for your reply. I just tested my problem with your solution. It works. but is it possible did not bring up the category (code) of my new page (sharing) from the categories listed in (blog)? I would like this to be independent as much as possible. Se non sono abbastanza chiaro, dica me per favore. Manuel grazie ancora per questo bel regalo che è Forte :) Miguel :)

Hi pixedelic, Can I disable Pagebuilder on New Post page and make the box of “cart icon, search icon, facebook …” on right page visibly ?

Hi bootcheet,

you can disable the page builder only from the page/post backend. The icons can be put on the right or the left inside, as you prefer.

Hi Manuel I just update your new version from … nothing appears: (what should I do please??


Sorry for the issue. Please, go to Forte -> General -> Very general and switch of the field “Put your custom CSS inline”.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hello! Is there a way to display breadcrumbs without displaying the page title? I noticed when I enable “Display the breadcrumbs” and disable “Display the title section”, the breadcrumbs no longer show up! Thank you for your help!!

Yes, the title section includes the breadcrumbs too.

Though via CSS you can achieve what you are looking for. Type this code into Forte -> Style:

.pix_divider.firstDivider {
display: none;
section#pix_breadcrumbs {
margin-top: 50px;

My footer goes really bad when my page has no data. Can you please cheque on my backoffice what is wrong?

You can see an example here: http://www.riluc.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=37&action=edit


Hi… of course I can’t enter the backend without username and password.

However I don’t think it is a problem I can fix through the backend. The footer doesn’t stay fixed, so when the page is short it stays on half of the page, it is a common issue of many site, honestly I don’t know how can fix it.

Manuel :-)

Hi Pixedelic, i want to know if it will be possible with Forte to build a marketplace site (seller and buyer) without selling (so excluding commerce) like alibaba

Thank you antonio

Hi Antonio,

this function doesn’t come from the theme but from WooCommerce. So I recommend to explore the features of WooCommerce by using a basic theme like Twenty-Twelve to check if what you want to achieve is possible.

Hi I’ve installed Forte via my WP Dashboard but just can’t get it to work. When I select Live Preview I just get a blank white screen and if I activate it I can’t even access my wp-login, I just get blank white. Have tried removing and re-installing and yes, I am only installing the theme folder and not the supporting documentation. Any ideas?! Thanks Cat

Ignore me, I’ve fixed it – it was WP Importer.

Yes, you’re right, it is mentioned in the documentation, but you are not the first one who ran into this problem.

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

four short questions:

1. How can I use my created testimonials as a widget in the footer, like on the home screen on your forte sample page? (http://www.pixedelic.com/themes/forte/)

2. How can I fill the “tag-cloud” widget with self created tagwords?

3. Is there a better way to sort the products on the shop page (to set which one is first, second….) instead of in woocommerce -> settings -> catalogue? Because these settings there arent working for how i want the products to be sorted.

4. Most important question: How can I make “Links” on my site look always the same? I know how to chance the color, but for example: the links in the sliding sidebar cart are not underlined and get underlined by mouse-hovering and the links on the shop page are underlined and get not underlined by hovering.

But I want every link to be the same. Either to be underlined and get not underlined by hovering or the other way.

It would be really great if you could help me on this.

Thanks a lot in advance

Benny :-)

Hi Benny,

1. the testimonials can be displayed with a shortcode, so if you enable the shortcode in the text widget you can also put them into the footer… even if I don’t assure that the layout doesn’t need adjustments in that case. To enable the shortcodes inside the widgets create a folder called forte_includes with a file inside it called includes.php. Put the code below inside that file and upload the folder to wp-content:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

2. Not sure to understand what you mean. The tag cloud displays the tags of your blog posts, nothing else.

3. You can sort the product manually by dragging them at the position you prefer: https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/b0h3?size=o and select on WooCommerce -> Settings -> Catalog “Default sorting”

4. You have to customize the CSS, I’m sorry. I can’t provide a fast solution in this case. If you type into Forte -> Styles:

a {
text-decoration: underline!important;
a:hover {
text-decoration: none!important;

You are near to what you want to achieve, but the code will affect the buttons too, so you have to check and fix it a little.

Manuel :-)

Thanks a lot Manuel :)

With question 2. i meant if its possible to use product-tags there or define which tags are shown in the tag-cloud.


No, sorry, the widget is the native one of Wordpress and it work with the default post type only.

Hi there! I bought the theme more than a year ago, I love it. It recently installed a new Wordpress site, uploaded the theme and that’s what i get: Notice: Undefined variable: filter_price_sidebar in /webspace/16/80132/indivisual-design.de/wp-content/themes/pahlke media/functions/lib/pix_widgets.php on line 96

Notice: Undefined variable: wp_version in /webspace/16/80132/indivisual-design.de/wp-content/themes/pahlke media/functions/lib/pix_menu.php on line 68

any suggestions? thanx!

Yes, maybe: did you import some content from another site? However, it seems some WooCommerce functions are enabled even if you didn’t activate WooCommerce, so you try to activate WooCommerce. About the ”$wp_version” issue: try to create a new menu from scratch.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi, no its a brandnew wordpress installation, uploaded theme , activated theme…just tried to create a menu: its getting even worse:

how do i activate WooCommerce? by the way: wordpress dashboard is little fucked up, admin panel as well :) thanx

Please, contact me via email and let me enter the site via Wordpress and via FTP too… all those errors seem come from old version of the theme: I fixed them since Forte 2.4.5 when WP 3.8 was near to be release: http://www.pixedelic.com/forte_current_version_changelog.php

manu[at]pixedelic.com (remind me this thread in the email please). Manuel :-)

I forgot to mention: theme is not working ! :)

I tried other themes, they work, wordpress etc is fine

There seems to be a limit to the number of testimonials that the shortcode will display (looks to be 10). Is there any way around that?

Here is the page I’m working on. Just added an 11th testimonial. It shows up if I change the publish date, but it pushes the next most recent one out to do so.


For the client’s ease, I’d prefer not having to specify the testimonial numbers that need to display – just keep it as “show all”.


I’m releasing an update that should fix this issue. In the meanwhile, if you prefer, replace the file forte/functions/lib/pix_shortcodes.php with this: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=wjUY9dBz

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Still the best theme I have used.

Is it possible to manipulate/ increase the number of likes (hearts) for portfolio items?

(Just for an initial boost to social proof!)


this function increases all the “likes” of all the portfolio items of 50 (replace with the value you prefer) if the value is less than 50. Just paste it into wp-content/forte_includes/includes.php (create file and directory if you haven’t done before). Then upload the file and refresh a page on your site. After that remove the function, it is useless: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=80Fqqa9A

Manuel :-)


I would like the slider to either stop at the last slide or pause for longer on the last slide before continuing to play from the beginning.

Is that possible?

Thank you

I’m sorry, it isn’t possible.

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel! I have purchased and trying to get along with. The URL: http://kakvjazat.ru/ So far I have 2 questions about

1.How do I enable the footer? When I go to Forte main panel > General -> Footer -> Display the widget area on the footer OK, I click it. But all widget areas, when I click on them here, show only “empty”, so no widget are available.

2. I noticed large piece of css code, installed on the page, if you view the code directly from the browser. It comes after: <!- WooCommerce Version -><meta name=”generator” content=”WooCommerce 2.0.20” /> Any ideas how to hide it into a separate css file?


1. please, read the documentation included (also available at this link: http://www.pixedelic.com/envato-assets/documentation.htm#footer_section):

On the widget area you can select up to four sidebars (to create a sidebar you must go to Forte admin panel -> Sidebars and add a sidebar, then you must add some widgets to the sidebars on Appearance -> Widgets). If you decide to leave empty a column that could contain a sidebar, the sidebar before that will fit the space left empty.

2. go to Forte admin panel -> General -> Very general and switch off the field “Put your custom CSS inline”.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi, all worked! thanks! I have also a question about sliding sidebar. I mean:http://www.pixedelic.com/forte_support_images/sliding_sidebar.jpg I simply can’t understand how to activate them. Doing it for http://kakvjazat.ru/ Could you please advise me how to enable it?

On Forte admin -> General -> Side icons. Just create an icon and instead to assign a link url to it, select a “Sidebar on click”. Of course you have to create a sidebar before and put into it some widgets, as described in the documentation.

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel!

I’m having some typography issues: I enabled Google fonts (Open sans) in the forte panel and with a plugin. I selected Open sans in various weights in the plugin, but can’t select them in the forte panel.

It’s for the title section and the footer section titles (http://www.print-art-read.com/product-categorie/print-parcollectie/)

The default weight is too heavy for me.

Also, is there css to lower the position of the text in the title section?

I want to use a smaller size, but then it gets to close to the header.

Thank you!

Grtz Janet

Hi Manuel,

I solved the title section issue with some CSS:

.pix_divider.firstDivider h1 { font-size: 1.5em!important; font-weight: 300!important; line-height: 72px!important; height: 65px!important; }

Do you know what CSS I need to get the content section to start higher? As I disabled the breadcrumbs, there’s a big white space still left between content and title section I could do without ;)

Cheers! Janet

Ah, the CSS for changing the font style of the footer titles, that’s still a mystery for me.

It is now set at uppercase 400, with what CSS can I change that?

Cheers again ;)


first of all add your custom CSS code into Forte admin panel -> Styles, this is very important.

Then, the title in the footer are H6 tags, so you can manage them from the typography section of the admin panel, except for the uppercase issue, in that case you can add to Forte admin panel -> Styles:

footer h6 {
text-transform: none;

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi, got a little problem with image gallery. I put caption (text over photo) but they dont appear. Got any idea how i can make those appear ?


Can you provide a link so I’ll better understand what you’re talking about? TIA, Manuel :-)

Ok, I’m sorry, but the caption isn’t available for the slideshow. It is visible only on the lightbox when you click the images (I recommend to select a different skin for your Colorbox on Forte -> Colors advanced -> Tooltips and Colorbox).

Manuel :-)

what are the dimensions for the homepage slider? height and weight?

example: http://www.mitchellalomar.com/donron/

Sorry, not sure to understand… it depends on what you want to achieve. If you want to display a fullscreen slideshow you have to click the icon on the page builder: https://www.diigo.com/item/image/1fza7/j6ne?size=o (icon 2).

Hello Manuel. Thank’s for your theme Forte!

I have a one problem. The file ‘comments.php’ in theme Forte has the following code:

... if ( pix_get_option( 'comment_registration' ) ...

But I can’t find this option in the Admin Panel Forte.

I switch on comments for posts and I set the global option, the guest must register before leaving a comment. But without this option – “pix_get_option( ‘comment_registration’ )”, the page doesn’t display the message out that they must register before leaving a comment.

Help please.


I update my wordpress to 3.8.1 and I also updated the theme to the latest version. Now, when I go to my website, All I get is a blank page. How do resolve this. I have minimal knowledge in php.

Sorry for the issue. Please, go to Forte -> General -> Very general and switch of the field “Put your custom CSS inline”.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Thanks. Your solution worked like a charm :-)
