Why does the whole article appear on my main page even though I made these settings? Go to Settings> Reading. Scroll to For each article in a feed, show. Select Summary.


That setting affects only feeds (for example RSS). Please see here: https://wordpress.org/support/article/wordpress-feeds/

To show only a part of an article on the main page, you must use the Read More tag. This way you can split your post anywhere you like.

Is the last version of the template compatible with PHP 7.2 ?

Is the last version of the template compatible with PHP 7.3 ?


Yes it is. For example the demo site is running on PHP 7.4 :)

do you plan an update? i really like the theme. but maybe is a little bit out of date.


Yes, I will add support for Gutenberg at some point :)

Hi.. did you think about gutenberg or is this theme dead?


Sorry, I have been busy with my other projects.

I will start working on adding support for Gutenberg. However the design of this theme is not the best possible for Gutenberg. For example full width, and wide image blocks will not work that great with this theme, because of the sidebar.

Is the update recently? If it’s a recent presentation, can I wait for you? I’ll take the sahifa or grunge.


Like I said in my previous reply, I will take a look at the code at some point, and see if there is anything that needs updating.

So, I can’t say anything about when the update is ready. In any case it won’t include any major changes to the theme.

Great to see this theme is still supported.

Is the font in the logo included with the theme?

Also, any chance you’d consider updating the theme so the sidebar stays in place (or so you can configure it to do that) while the main content area scrolls? Or would that be a lot of work?


The font used for the logo is Oswald https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Oswald

No, I will not add new features to the theme.

Does the sidebar get to the right? Can I get to the right?

The demo is not taken to the right on the site. Do you have mobile compatibility? why not update


I moved the sidebar to the right, so you can see what it looks like.

There is an option in the theme options which allows moving the sidebar to the right or left.

Yes, the theme is responsive, so it is compatible with all screen sizes.

You are right, there haven’t been updates for a while. I will take a look at the code at some point, and see if there is anything that needs updating. However, there won’t be any major changes to the theme.

Waiting for update. i will buy

hello. this theme is still suported? when will be the next release?


Yes, it is supported.

No plans for the next update. Is there something that needs to be updated? :)

I love this theme. I just feel like the left-hand sidebar takes up too much room. I see there is an option to change the sidebar position. Do you have a demo with it on the right-hand side? That might feel better for me.


I moved the sidebar from left to right on the demo site :)

There’s an option for this on the Theme Options panel.

Thank you! That feels much better to me.

Is the font in the logo included with the theme?

I notice now the live colour-scheme picker is behaving as if the sidebar were still on the left. Is it possible to fix that so I can have a play?

Hello, I’m not sure if you can help with this but I’m trying to install Hello Bar onto my site. It says to add the code anywhere in the tag. I’ve tried adding it in the index.php and header.php with no luck. Any ideas?? Thanks!!

Hello Michele,

Could you give me the link to the WordPress plugin page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/

Is this theme compatible with BuddyPress and bbPress, and I have two sites, can I use this theme on both or only one?

Thanks, Sam


There are no specific styling for BuddyPress or bbPress included, so you may have to do some customization by yourself.

You can use the theme only on one site with the regular licence.


I have 2 questions:

- Is it possible to center the logo image in the header for both desktop and mobile view?

- Does “Translation ready” mean I have to translate manually? Do you provide the required files?



1) Yes, with a couple lines of CSS into the Theme Options. I can help you with that.

2) It means that the theme is translatable.

This theme has not much to translate anyway, and using German language for WordPress dashboard automatically translates lots of the theme.

Rest of the theme can be easily translated using for example https://poedit.net/ It is really easy to use.

If you run into problems with the translation, I will help you :)


Would you mind sharing the code to increase font size in the body of my website content? I can’t seem to find it. Thanks!


You could add something like this in Appearance > Theme Options > Custom CSS:

.hentry {font-size:1.125em;}

Sorry for the late response. thanks for your help. That worked out perfectly!

Great! :)

Seriously considering using this theme but I have a question that was asked by another but I didn’t see an answer (unless I missed it).

Can the content width be widened? It’s too narrow, for me.

Thanks, Sam

Hello Sam,

The content area was actually widened from the original version after many requests. It won’t be widened anymore :)

If it gets any wider the readability suffers, because the line length gets too long.

Hi. Same experiences with this theme and woo commerce?

Sorry, I don’t understand your question :)


I purchased this theme some time ago. Never had any issues with it. As of the last couple of months or so, I noticed that when I publish a new post it does not get posted to my home page.

After much trial and error, with deactivating plugins, putting the post back into draft mode and republishing, etc., I noticed the only thing that work is when I change back to the default theme and then switch back again.

Someone had thought it may have been my WP Super Cache, but I’ve deactivated this plugin and I’m still getting the issue.

I’d rather not have to keep switching back and forth every time I post. Do you have any idea what may be causing this? My site is http://theedgecode.com.


Wordpress yes. For the theme, i have version 1.0.2. I just checked. Looks like you’re on version 1.1.0. Does this mean I have to purchase again and upload? And will this override any changes that I’ve made? Thanks!

You don’t have to purchase again. You can download the new version at http://themeforest.net/downloads

If you have made changes to the theme files, they will be overridden unfortunately.

I really don’t believe that this problem is caused by the theme. Have you tried to clear the browser’s cache after publishing a new post?

I did, but it didn’t help. Some weird things happening. I just got a notice from Google. Looks like all my category pages are coming up as ‘Page not found.’ Ugh!

OK, will try upgrading it and see if that helps any. Thanks!

I just replied to your mail :)

Using the flckr gallery widget, is there a setting somewhere to make it open in a new window instead of the user leaving your page?


The widget is using Flickr’s API to fetch the images, and it doesn’t have a setting for that.

You could add this to the scripts.js file to use jQuery to open images in new tab:

$(".flickr_badge_image a").attr('target','_blank');

Add the line before the “});” in the end of the file.

I re-downloaded Grunge theme and attempted to re-install it and got this:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-4040858-grunge-responsive-blog-theme.zip

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Theme install failed.

There is the theme.zip file inside the file you got from ThemeForest. That is the actual theme file.

Do you know why it went awry, the tech support of my hosting company said it had something to do with your coding they couldn’t fix it. I emailed you the error msg. Just wondering if it’s going to happen again…

The error message pointed to Theme Options framework used in the theme: https://github.com/devinsays/options-framework-theme

It could be something to do with PHP compatibility of the theme, WordPress, Theme Options, or your server.

Best way to avoid problems is to have the latest versions of the theme, and WordPress installed.

I just get a white blank screen when I try to load the Grunge theme. I emailed you the error msg but have not heard anything back, my hosting company said it’s a problem with the theme. It’s worked fine until last few weeks. Any suggestions on how to fix?

Contact me with the account your purchased the theme. I can’t provide support otherwise.
