Hi there

I love this theme but my limited knowledge of WP is holding me back :( I updated to WP 3.7 two days ago and also took the opportunity to change the images that are in the gallery on my home page. I am running Galleria 2.0.

Having done this, all I get now for the images is twirling loading signs :( I can’t figure out what I’ve done wrong.

Could some kind soul advise me as to what I’ve done wrong and how I fix it.

Make sure you are running the latest version of the theme. The current version if 3.1. This version works great in WordPress 3.7.

Where will I find this?

You can download all of the updates for free at anytime. Just hover over your profile name in the top right and click on “Downloads”. This will allow you to download the latest version of the theme.


I have the latest wordpress (3.7.1) and the latest theme (3.1) but I can’t access the gallery functions. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

We can confirm Galleria works with the latest version of WordPress. Go ahead and post your question in our support forums. Include a screen-shot if possible as that will help with the trouble-shooting:

I just did. Looking forward to your reply on there!

Responded :-). I believe it was just a simple UI change that was causing the confusion.

Hello, I am running wordpress 3.8 and I need your help, I want a theme to create a gallery like yours (paintings, sculptures, ceramics, furniture, tapestries, and create a shopping very simple menu). The problem is that I do not know anything about programming! Can you tell me if your theme match my search, simple to use and if I can realize. Best regard

Yeah, you should have no problems translating the documentation. The documentation is actually in .html so if you used google chrome, you could translate easily. Here is how-to: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/173424?hl=en

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello, Can you tell me how to contact you, because I bought the program and I would like to ask you questions.

This is a nice simple template! I always like to keep things simple. :)

In your demo, i notice that when you click on “Landscapes”, it shows two menus below Landscapes, Portraits and Mixed Gallery. Mine doesn’t do that. I would like to hide them until you click on “Landscapes. Can you help me with that.

Will this possible become responsive someday. It would be nice.

Glad you are enjoying the theme. You can add the additional sub-menus by following these directions:

Thanks! i got it to work! Sorry it has nothing to do with your template. I’m really new with Wordpress. Thanks for your help! :D

Sure i will go to that site for more help. I appreciate it!

will this them work on WP 3.1.2. or 3.9-33

Yeah, this theme works with the latest version of WordPress. I recommend using the most recent version.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can I upgrade to this? Or do I have to pay full price? I saw the other galleria first, the older version, and I bought it but it won’t upload. I am thinking maybe I needed this newer version, but I don’t want to pay for another theme when the first didn’t work. Can I upgrade? Do I have to buy this at full price to get this newer version? Thanks!

OK, I fixed it and I loaded the theme – it’s all set up but I am still having some issues. I tried to load some pictures onto the front page (I chose a static front page) but it’s taking FOREVER to load and the pictures are showing up 2x – in the display and thumbnails and then again i na list underneath – it looks awful. And when I delete a picture in edit mode it stays there when I view the site. I can’t seem to get it to look like the demo. My pages load slowly. My clients need a quick site that they don’t have to wait for. I have tried to fix this on 2 different computers.

Some pictures I have added are not even showing up. I am close to giving up on this theme. Everything is too slow and not working properly.

Jump onto our support forums if you need help. We have the forums available to assist buyers with problems. Note: The theme has been well tested(800+ installs) and I can assure you it is both fast and working with no bugs.


Love the theme, but have just updated WP to 4.0.1 and still on v3 of your theme. Can I update the theme without loosing my Galleria setup / config etc… Can’t see a way of updating theme without overwriting it.


Yeah, you can update away. I recommend running the latest version of the theme. You should not lose any setup/configurations. Make sure to save a back-up just in case.

Thanks for coming back so soon. I cannot see an update option on the theme when I click appearance. Is there a special way? Should I just select add new ?

Yeah, you will need to download the files from ThemeForest. Then either delete your old theme or add-in the new files via FTP. If you need help updating, feel free to jump onto our support forums and we can assist:

I love the theme and I am thinking of buying it, but i have 2 questions : 1st one is regarding the picture ratio does it have to be 3×4 as its on the live view example or can i change the ratio t 2×3 ?? 2nd question is about the blank gray space on the left can i delete it and place it with the menus ?? thanks in advance

1) The ratio can be anything (Landscape, portrait, etc.). Check out the last item in the black and white gallery for an example of this: http://galleria.progressionstudios.com/black-white/#10

2) The space on the left can’t be used for anything really. That space only shows up when using a much larger browser size.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

CRAP! After searching through the hundreds of full screen photography themes I dont want I finally stumble onto yours with a clean interface and its NOT responsive….argh!

Any plans to make it responsive?

Unfortunetly we have no plans on making a responsive version of this theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

How do I get the template update? any new release after this 3.3 ver? I do have ver 3.3 but I have some issues with WP 4.3.1… It do NOT save any theme options. You update anything and after you saved, everything goes back to default… Why? thank you

All updates are free and can be downloaded under “Downloads” within ThemeForest in the top right. The latest version of Galleria is version 3.3. This version supports the latest version of WordPress. IF you have any trouble using the theme after updating, feel free to post in our support forums. We can help you trouble-shoot any issues: http://support.progressionstudios.com

I just checked the live preview and found the issue you are referencing. I have patched it and updated the theme already. The latest version is now 3.4 and can be downloaded for free in your downloads. The updated files are the /admin/ folder within your theme download.
