Hi – Bought this theme a few years ago and it’s all up to date. However, if I change to php from anything other than 5.6, I get website errors when logging in (The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions) – is there anything you might suggest?

Yes, we recommend running at least PHP 6+ with all of our themes. This is the recommendation by WordPress as well. If you are having issues upgrading, then email us via our profile page contact form and we can assist you: https://themeforest.net/user/progressionstudios#from

I get an error message stating that the CSS for the theme is missing when attempting to install:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-6w7wvx7W-growler-brewery-wordpress-theme.zip Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme installation failed.

Make sure to unzip the initial download from ThemeForest. Inside you will find the theme documentation, photoshop files, and WordPress theme. Check out the theme documentation as we have a video tutorial on the install and demo import: http://progression-studios.com/documentation/growler/

If you have any additional questions, feel free to open a support ticket. We are happy to help out: http://support.progressionstudios.com

Tried to automatically update from the previous version to 4.0 and it destroyed all my settings and slider. Fortunately I backed up before. How come?

If you had any issues updating, go ahead and send me an e-mail via my profile page contact form. If you are updating from a very old version, it may require additional steps: https://themeforest.net/user/progressionstudios#from

Ok, will do. I tried the update from 3.9 to 4.0 running WP 5.1

Today’s events never show up. Never have and apparently our support is no longer available.

Check your event settings under Events > Settings > General. If you scroll to the bottom you will see options for displaying active events, expired events, and more. You can adjust these as needed to display ongoing events (today’s events) and so on.

If you have any other questions, we can help you out in our support forum. If your support has expired, you can extend it at a discount on the top right of the item page: http://support.progressionstudios.com

Yeah, those three options at the bottom of your screenshot are what I am referring to. Check out the text description to see what each option does.

The Revolution Slider on our site is broken (will not render) because the plugin is unable to load the Vimeo api. Slider is showing the following error: “Vimeo Api Could not be loaded !” Multiple JS console errors are occurring in the Slider Revolution and themepunch.revolution plugin files: (anonymous) @ jquery.themepunch.revolution.min.js?ver=5.4.8:7

jquery.themepunch.revolution.min.js?ver=5.4.8:7 Vimeo Api Could not be loaded !

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘is_mobile’ of undefined at revolution.extension.actions.min.js?ver=5.4.8:8 at revolution.extension.actions.min.js?ver=5.4.8:8

We are on the latest version of WordPress (4.9.8), have latest version of the Growler Brewery theme installed (3.9), and our Slider Revolution plugin is up-to-date (5.4.8). Are you working on a patch for this? ​Please advise and thanks so much!

We can confirm there is no bug within the theme or slider plugin. It looks like your support has expired so you can’t ask for help in the support forum. In that case, go ahead and send me an e-mail via my profile page contact form and I can assist: https://themeforest.net/user/progressionstudios#from

I have purchaed this theme, but when I try to use the support system it requires me to match my purchase code with a theme which is not listed. I can not submit a support ticket. Please help.

Sorry you are having trouble logging into the support forum. You can login two ways.

Option 1) Use the green “Login with Envato” button. This will automatically register with your ThemeForest login credentials.

Option 2) You can also manually create an account using your purchase code. Here is a link to the Growler theme pre-selected: https://progressionstudios.ticksy.com/submit/#100003533

If you are unsure how to get your purchase code, check out this tutorial: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202822600-Where-Is-My-Purchase-Code-

I have logged in and have my purchase code. But I am asked to select a product and provide my purchase code. The theme I purchased “growler-brewery-wordpress-theme” is not on the list of products. If I choose a different one and provide my purchase code I am not allowed to submit the ticket.

Is there a way submit a ticket without selecting a product? Should I just submit my ticket here in the comments?

The item name is Growler – WordPress Theme. It is alphabetical order and should be easy to find.

If you cannot open a support ticket, feel free to send us an e-mail directly via our profile page contact form (bottom right): https://themeforest.net/user/progressionstudios#from

Is your support page down? I’m having a problem with some of the live import elements coming in as “failed to import….”. Its happening to about 1/3 of the items. Any ideas? Thanks!

One other thing, I am not seeing any content in the help file. The structure of the file is there (tabs, etc.) but no info in the tabs. Am I missing something? I have watched the import video. Thanks!

Sorry about that, yeah the service we use in our support system Ticksy is down. In the meantime do please e-mail me directly for any support (Form is in the bottom right): https://themeforest.net/user/progressionstudios#from

Documentation: The documentation should be on one page that you can scroll up/down via the navigation on the left. If yours does not display, let me know and I can provide you with an online copy.

​Hi, We are considering purchasing this theme for a client and we had a quick question.

Can featured beers link to an individual page for each beer? Can each individual beer on the beers page link to an individual page for each beer?

Thanks for your help!

Yeah, we have support built-in for what you are asking. You can have beer pages for individual beers. This would allow the index of beers list to link to a page with more information about each beer.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey there, couple questions:

1. I saw where you can add a link instead of the light box for beers but I can’t figure out how to do this. I would like to just have it link to the URL of the beer item where I can include tasting notes and pairing suggestions.

2. Is it possible to install a secondary menu? For example, in addition to the dropdown on a specific page visitors would see “tabs” or “links” in a menu format horizontally across the top of the screen.

Any help?

You will need to have purchased the theme in order to post in the forum. It looks like the account you are posting from has no purchases. If you are having trouble using the automatic verification, try manually creating a ticket by using the purchase code option: https://progressionstudios.ticksy.com/submit/#100003533 You can find your purchase code here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202822600-Where-Is-My-Purchase-Code-

Pre-Purchase questions can be asked in the item comments. However I assumed based on your question that you are already using the theme. I am guessing you purchased it from another account.

Yes, I purchased it from another account and I don’t have access to it.

You will need a valid purchase in order to post in our support forum: http://support.progressionstudios.com

If you lost your account password or something like that, you can reach out to Envato to get this fixed here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Hey, do you support RTL?

Unfortunetly we don’t have any RTL support built-in. If you needed RTL support, you would need to add this in by following the WordPress documentation: http://codex.wordpress.org/Right-to-Left_Language_Support


Everything was working as expected until activating WooCommerce 2.6.x (which is listed as compatible with this theme). Upon activating WooCommerce, the Revolution Slider is now broken (sliders will not render) and the revolution slider interface is now showing the following fatal error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function get_price_html() on boolean in /home/rawspiri/public_html/wp-content/plugins/revslider/includes/slide.class.php on line 1314

We are on the latest version of WordPress (4.7.2) and there are no 3rd party plugins other than WooCommerce and those packaged with this theme that would be causing the issue. Is there a patch or a plugin update that needs to be manually applied? Please advise and thanks!

My style.css file says I’m on Version: 2.1 (Child Theme). Seems we’re .2 behind. Where do I download Growler theme updates? Also generally, where do we receive notifications that there are theme updates available?

Thanks so much for your help!

Yeah, here is a tutorial on how to update. It also includes a way you can get notified/turn on automatic updates: http://progressionstudios.com/tutorial-item/how-to-update-your-wordpress-theme/

Thanks so much!

Hi, I like the theme but again like some other users, I’m needed an easily edited food menu. Suggestions?

Yeah, you can use the Beers layout to easily display food items. You can create as many or as few beers page layouts as you need. They don’t need to be beer related but can be food items. Alternatively you can easily add menu items via free plugins from wordpress.org like: https://wordpress.org/plugins/food-and-drink-menu/ (There are many others)

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, I’m just wondering to what extent are the colours customisable. Ie. can the following colours be changed: - drop down menu colour - ‘view of our beers,’ ‘visit our taproom,’... buttons on the slider - background colours. Cheers!

Also can the Photos from Flickr section be changed to Instagram?

Yeah, the colors can easily be adjusted. We have a front-end options panel which allows you to preview edits to colors. Here is a screen-shot: https://0.s3.envato.com/files/108144838/Screenshots/04-Customizer-Growler.jpg (Very easy to use)

Also, yeah the buttons and slider can be adjusted easily.

The flickr section can easily be replaced by instagram. To do so you would just need to install a plugin. Our recommended instagram plugin is: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-instagram-widget/ It only takes a few minutes to install and setup.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Does the old support forum still exist, or do I have to submit a ticket? I’m heavily customizing this theme and I feel like most questions I have would’ve already been answered in the forum and probably don’t warrant a full support ticket.

Unfortunetly the new support forum is private. We did this so users can share links and information ensuring everything is private. If you have any support questions, you will need to post in our support forums with support remaining: http://support.progressionstudios.com

Note: Support does not include customization help. We try our best to point users in the right direction but this does not include custom development. If you want to hire us for customizations, we are available via our website here: http://progressionstudios.com/contact-us/

Does this theme work with the Contact Form 7 plug-in?

Yeah, we have support and styling built-in for the Contact Form 7 plugin.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, I would like to make the page title background image to display more in height.

Can you please let me know where I can change the height? Currently it is about 220px and I would like the height to be 400px.


Yeah, you can easily modify that with css. That are is controlled via this setting: #page-title { padding:50px 0px 50px 0px; }. So if you wanted to increase the height, you would add more padding. If you need help implementing this, feel free to post in our support forums. We are happy to help: http://support.progressionstudios.com

That worked perfectly, thanks so much.

Hi, I am new to Wordpress, can this template function as an online store?


Yeah, this theme works great as an online store. We have a demo of this online: http://growler.progressionstudios.com/shop/ All of the eCommerce/shop functionality is built-in. You can start selling/accepting payments easily with this theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi, I have some pre-sale questions.

1. Can any page have the side bar? Or are their set templates that have or do not have the sidebar? eg: the homepage – can their be a sidebar under the main image slider?

2. Can you display the events for only a specific category on a page?

3. Can I easily change the size of the event image that displays for the events feed with css?


1. Yeah, any page can easily have a sidebar. The homepage does support a sidebar as well.

2. Yes, the events have optional categories and can display based on category.

3. Yes, you can easily adjust the event image dimensions. This would be done via WordPress, not CSS.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

thanks for that. I will purchase :-)
