Could you please explain if there’s a way to keep a post ‘featured’, but not in the main feature slider – i.e. I’d like an old post to remain displayed on the homepage as per a ‘Gameday: Category feature’ style; however, whenever a new post occurs in the same category, the old post will be relegated. Making post ‘sticky’ doesn’t work – and also creates a bug in the featured slider. Could you help please?

Hey fantasista10,

Please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll be happy to help you with this. Thanks!

I’ve submitted a support ticket for you to view, with attached screenshot. Thanks

I just bought the gameday theme. I successfully installed it but couldn’t activate it.

“Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in C:\wamp\www\wordpress-3.5\wordpress\wp-content\themes\gameday\admin\envato-wordpress-toolkit-library\class-envato-protected-api.php on line 344”

That’s the error message I got after activating it. Please help me out.

I just did that.

Please I need this fixed urgently

Hey johnnex,

I replied to your ticket. If that doesn’t work for you, feel free to reply and I’ll see what I can do.

Just updated the issue in support ticket, and now also have another issue – post not appearing correctly when published, however looks fine, when ‘previewed’. Added to ticket.

Hey fantasista10,

There is no need to post here if you updated the ticket. I will answer the ticket in the order it was received. Thanks :)

Hi, thanks sorry for that, I’m just waiting due to the importance of needing to publish some work and having difficulty. Hope you can see the updated ticket ok

Hey fantasista10,

I replied to your ticket. If you are still having issues, feel free to respond to the ticket.

If you’re planning on making a new theme, make another sports theme! I LOVE your work! Most def. I will buy it again!!!!!

Thanks hassan97!

Currently I use the theme on my website Resportsive, and I would now like to buy this theme, if I’m going to have some problems with that migration rather problem with images for this theme?

Hey evilmc,

Thanks for the interest!

You shouldn’t have any issues as both themes utilize the same featured image capability and are set up similarly. If you decide to buy and have any issues, feel free to submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll be happy to help. Thanks!

I recently purchased your theme which I am in love with, there is however one problem…

The styles.css file is missing. Can you please fix this issue for me?

Kind regards, Jack.

Hey Jacks_Ready,

Thanks for the purchase!

You are trying to install the wrong zip file. Please unzip the file you downloaded from Themeforest and follow the instructions inside the /documentation folder to install the theme.

Thank you very much, in my naivety to get things up and running faster I neglected to look properly.

The theme is awesome and I implore you to consider creating a new skin based on the english football league, I think that is a niche market.

Thanks again, Jack.

Hi, does the scoreboard support sports like MMA and Boxing, or similar information type i.e. not necessarily numerical results? That would be amazing..

Hey ericksontx,

Thanks for the interest!

The scoreboard is controlled manually, so you can enter any information you’d like in there. There is basically a place for 2 teams and 2 scores, but you can enter any text you’d like for the score or even just have one team and one score. It’s all up to you.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I found a CSS/font issue that seems like it would affect everyone, and also is in the Live Preview on Themeforest.

Basically, the initial Live Preview inside the frame, shows a version with bold fonts in headers/titles.

However, once you install the theme, as I did, the heading and title fonts are all skinny/non-bold.

Also, when you are in Live Preview of Gameday when viewing on Themeforest, and you click on the link at the upper left to Remove Frame, that same thing happens – with the frame removed, the frameless version of the Live Preview shows skinny fonts. With the frame, bold fonts and the more aesthetically pleasing version of Gameday.

For example if you Remove Frame, look at the title in the slider, the widget and article titles, and so on – all skinny and unbolded. That’s how my gameday theme appears when installed, with skinny title/heading fonts.

Any idea what might be causing this and how to fix? I’d like my fonts to be the same weight as what’s shown in the Live Preview, framed version.

I am using IE 9.

Hey ericksontx,

Thanks for the heads up. It looks like the issue is fixed now on the demo and will be included in the next update. If you would like the fix now, please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I can show you. Thanks!

Great, thanks.

Also sorry to ask about one more issue – if I’m not mistaken there was a black/dark drop shadow behind the titles? Seems to be missing now?

Hey ericksontx,

Thanks for submitting a ticket. Please keep any responses to the ticket just so we keep the conversation in one spot. Thanks!

I seem to have lost the responsive aspect on mobile. Menu at top disappears and not drop down option shows up. Any ideas?

Hey rharv,

This should have only happened if you made custom changes on your own that altered the theme, but please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll see what I can do.

Thanks, I did.

should have read ‘no drop down option’

Is it possible to add different sidebar widgets on different category? It would be great I think :)

Hey marbolec,

This is not a built-in feature, but you may be able to use a plugin like Section Widget that would allow you to do this.

Wow great!. thanks for the info

Presale question.

I need to use the logo and banner above the navigation bar. If this is possible, I will buy the template today.


Hey sebamiguens,

Thanks for the interest!

Unfortunately this is not a feature of the theme and while I do offer to perform small custom changes, this would require more than just a short fix, so it is something you would have to modify on your own or get a third party to help you with since I am unable to provide this level of customization to all of my customers. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Do not worry. I’ve also bought. Later I will both template customization. Thank you.

Where can I remove the height for the blog container? I want the blog widget to display the entire image, not crop it.

Hey flaucivendor,

Hi MVP, I really like this design theme, but i have a couple question before I’ll buy it.

1. Does this theme run on cyrillic language, specially on Russian? Because I had problems with russian language before, with ??? showing up in the text of a page and widgets.

2.Does the future updates to the theme include in the price? Or do i have to pay additional fee?

3.The social bar under 728×90 banner, can I customize it and add other social icons there or remove some I don’t use?

4. When i go to theme article, under h1 article title there is a social bar. Can i remove it or customize it?


Hey Simbolik,

Thanks for the interest!

1. Hey, this theme uses the Google fonts “Oswald” and “Open Sans Condensed”, so you can check to see if those are compatible. If not, you can always change the font in the stylesheet.

2. Yes, all updates are free and available via your Themeforest profile!

3. You can certainly remove the ones you don’t use, but you will have to add any that are displayed on the demo.

4. Yes, you can remove this social bar very easily.

I’m taking that message when i try to install one by one the plugins you have in the plugin folder(PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature)!!Why is this happening?Can the theme work without these plugins?

Hey larissaios,

I’m not sure what plugins you are referring to, but can you please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll take a look for you. Thanks!

Love this theme man. Working great. Just one quesiton.

Is it possible to sort the games in the ‘Score’ section by putting the recently added last? I want any new games entered to appear at the end of the list, in chronological order.


Hey flash1821,

Please submit a ticket at the Support Center and I’ll be happy to help you with this. Thanks!

Hi, Whenever put an ad or some sort of code next to the logo area (in the 728×90 Ad Code box under ad management) the logo shrinks. How can I prevent that as it looks horrible when it shrinks. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Pre Sale Question

I am very interested in your theme along with the resportsive theme and trying to determine which one would best match my current site. I am very impressed with your feedback to all the user questions, thank you for helping us out both pre and post purchase. Couple questions, 1) on the gameday theme, can you set up the scoreboard to pull in scores automatically or do these need to be updated manually? 2) Can you set up the columns under the ‘slider’ on gameday to only have 2 columns such as my current site or would I need to look at another theme? 3) Does the resportsive theme offer twitter integration so I can pull in my twitter feed? Thank you very much for the help, looking forward to purchasing one of these themes if not both.

Hey tmcdannell,

Thanks for the interest!

1) You will have to enter scores manually

2) There is not an option to change it to 2 columns

3) I am waiting to see what happens with the Twitter API before I add it back to the theme, but hopefully I will be able to add it soon. I can’t guarantee anything though.

Pre Sale Question Cont’d

Hello guys sorry, threw out my original questions then a couple more hit me about the gameday and resportsive themes:

1) am I limited to the plugins sold on themeforest or can I use normal wordpress plugins with the gameday and resportsive themes? 2) I referenced my website in my prior post, would I be able to add a similar widget that pulls in a twitter feed from one of my lists, not necessarily my personal feed? 3) Regarding widgets, would I be able to add the sidebar widget that details current soprts stories like I have on my site now? 4) Would I be able to use the amazon widgets/plugins for advertising? (kinda relates back to my first question on if i can use any plugin/widget)

Thank you again for your time, I love these themes, just want to make sure they will be able to provide what I need for my site.

Hey tmcdannell,

1) You can use any plugins with the theme, but I cannot guarantee that all plugins will be compatible with the theme.

2) This is not a feature, so you would need to either edit the widget on your own or add a plugin capable of this

3) The theme comes with the widgets displayed on the demo so you can display stories that you write in Wordpress.

4) I am not familiar with this plugin, so I cannot guarantee that the plugin will be 100% compatible, but the theme comes with its own ad management, which allows you to enter ad code to display ads on your site.
