excellent theme. At the moment it seems your server is not available. I got a lot of error messages like this

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 35127296) (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /vhosts/ on line 690

all the best :-)

Cheers mike

Hey Xenopo!

could you please check once more now? It might have been a temporary hosting server setback; the demo is working fine from my machine at the moment.

Sincerely, Andrew / Satori Studio

Hi Andrew, now works fine! Cheers Mike

excellent theme

Thank you Deliopk


Can you tell me why the page content is not being displayed?


Also, do you know why this page is mis-aligning?

Hey VivaDigital!

The reason for both issue is the fact that no template has been chosen for the pages (i.e. the default template is used). Please try choosing the “Right-sidebar” template from the “Template” drop-down in the “Page Attributes” box while in the editor mode. Thank you for pointing this out and my apologies for the bug; I’ll see if it is possible to hide or override the default for future uses.

When I create a gallery of pictures and put a text on “excerpt” is not displayed when published. Is it possible?

Hey Deliopk!

That’s right, the excerpt text overlays are not displayed for “gallery” format portfolio boxes in Ikebana because of the navigation arrows that would otherwise be overlapping the excerpt. If you need it anyway, you can customize the “content-gallery.php” template file; I can also make a custom file for you myself if time permits.

Andrew / Satori Studio

ok thanks I’ll do some tests, if I fail, I ask for help

Hello Andrew

For a long time I have searched for a suitable theme. Yours is unique! Thank you very much!

Can you help me with the following: In a portfolio item creation, I select one tag. Then I select in a second portfolio item another tag. In the Icon menu I made several page-link URLs. The result is that all portfolio items are located on the home page and that there are no portfolio items on the pages of the Icon-menu located. Do I something wrong? Does a tag referring to a page? How can I create different portfolio pages?

Best regards Kees

Dear Kees,

I am not sure what you mean – the Ikebana-based website’s mobile menu behaves similarly to the example you’ve provided (see screenshot).

Could you please clarify or provide a screenshot from your device? Thanks!

Best, Andrew / Satori Studio

Hey Andrew. The link: On the screenshot, a moment ago, suddenly I saw the blurred titles in the menu. The colors have to change !!! Can you tell me how? Kees

Hm, apparently some versions of iPhone have a different background color of the drop-downs than I’ve expected. Thanks for pointing this out!

You can change the background color for the drop-down in the “Mobile menu item background” setting on the “Style: Header” tab of the Theme Options panel.

Sincerely, Andrew / Satori Studio

Possible to move the ‘play’ arrow (on Portfolio) from the upper right of the image to the center of the image? More like a play arrow like we are used to on sites such as YouTube, etc. Please advise. Thank you.

Hey there!

this is not envisaged via the theme’s back-end, yet it can be easily done via CSS: please go to the “Style: Add Custom CSS” tab of the Theme Options and add this code:

.overlay-video { background-position: 50% 50% !important; }

Sincerely, Andrew / Satori Studio


I`ve got a problem. I can´t install the demo content. After I have started the install process I saw a white screen. You wrote in your documentation a solution with FTP-Programm. My problem is I have absoluty NO experience with FTP because I use a pre-installed wordpress version on my server provided by my hosting company. I have no knowledge about server structures etc.

Is there really no way, to install the demo content on the normal way by the wordpress-importer? For me is very important to start with the demo content!

Can you help me? Thanks for your support in advance.


Hey Mike!

I can help you troubleshoot the content importer, for this I’ll need access to your WordPress admin – please send me your login and password, together with the website URL, to (no disclosure guaranteed).

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi Andrew, thanks for your help. At Moment I ‘m on business traveling. I will send you the Login data next week.

Best greetings Mike

Hi Andrew,

Love the theme, which is making a client very happy.

I have a quick customisation question. There are a few images I have put in as portfolio items for purely decorative purposes on the home page. Is it possible to disable the links on these images, so that clicking on them does not take you to the portfolio “post”?

Many thanks!

Hi Andrew,

As tends to happen I found an answer to my own question, but I’ll post the CSS here for anyone else who needs it:

body.home #portfolio-list .inner-image-placeholder a { cursor: default !important; pointer-events: none; }

.project-hover { display: none; }


Hey Idea15,

first of all, thank you for the purchase, and for posting a solution for others to re-use!

I must note that the “pointer-events” method might not be suitable for everyone at the moment primarily because it’s CSS3 and still does not work in even the latest versions of Opera and Internet Explorer.

I’ve prepared another solution, which can be used in any browser and version: please download this archive with the upgraded format template, unzip it, and upload the contained file into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Ikebana), replacing the existing file. Once finished you will be able to add thumbnails (featured images) to “aside” format projects; in case such project has a thumbnail, it will display that images in an unclickable box on the portfolio page. In case an “aside” project doesn’t have a thumbnail set, it will behave as previously, i.e. display the unclickable text from the project content.

I will include this update into the next theme version as well, thanks for pointing it out!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Andrii, that’s amazing customer service. Thank you so much.

Ikebana is really cool. There is one question. Ikebana demonstration sites from the desktop, the main menu is arranged vertically doedeonde I would like to know how to do.

Hey Webob,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

You can create the vertical icon menu in the “Icon Menu” tab of the Theme Options panel. More information and screenshots are available on pages 3-4 of the theme’s manual.

Should you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hello satoridesign, I am just customizing my newly bought ikebana and came on an issue – can’t set portfolio item captions. In the manual it’s written I have to input the text in excerpt field, which I did and enable in portfolio settings show on mouse hover or always show.

None of the above works. Running wordpress 3.7.1

Regards, Tomek

Hey Tomek,

the website code looks fine, so we’ll try to update the template files in order to eliminate the possibility of a bug: please download this archive, unzip it, and upload the contained files into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Ikebana/), replacing the existing files, and let me know if it fixes the issue.

Andrii / Satori Studio

Looks like this helped. Thank you for swift assistance ;)

Glad to hear it was sorted out!

Should you have more questions or face issues with the theme, do not hesitate to contact me.

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi, Great theme I’ve a few question for you if can please help me.

1. How can I use the sticky posts with the first one be the logo.

2. How can I translate the “Icon menu items”.


Hey Beaverglobal,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

I will address the questions in the same order:

1). The sticky logo in the theme demo is created using the “link” project format; you can make it sticky by using the “Sticky (Always first)” meta box in the project editor mode. The “link” format supports thumbnails, and can direct the user to any URL you wish upon mouse click. Please see page 9 of the theme manual for more information on the “link” format and other formats.

2). I would like to clarify – are you creating a multilingual website and need to display the icon menu items in several languages on the same website?

Andrii / Satori Studio

Thanks for your response.

1. I’ll check the manual.

2. Yes, I’m going to have 1 website with 2 languages in the same website, so I need to edit the “icons-text” for the languages.

Thank you!

Hey Beaverglobal,

I’ve prepared a fix for the icon title translation issue, please download this archive, unzip it, and upload into the theme folder, replacing the existing file. Please let me know if it helps!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hello, I found a surprise, I can not create a third submenu in the top menu, goes misconfigured. It is possible? Have the example on my website, if you want to see.

Hey there,

you’re right, it is a bug. Please add this code to the bottom of the “style.css” file (opens by default when going to “Appearance -> Editor” admin menu):
#nav-primary ul ul ul { top: -1px !important; }
#nav-primary ul li ul li { position: relative !important; }

Please let me know if it helps!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Perfect!! Great support :)

Glad to hear it helps! Thank again for noticing the bug, I will include the fix into the next version update for Ikebana.

Should you face other issues, do not hesitate to contact me!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Perfect working theme with excellent support!

Thank you, Csaba! :)

Excelent design!

I’m having a problem changing the background color of each individual project. I have read in the comments that I must press the submit button on the drop down box, but not changed.

I’ve tried repeatedly and with different projects but there is no way. Am I doing something wrong?.

Thank you!

Hey Javiher,

first of all, thank you for the purchase! I will need to see the back-end and the code in order to troubleshoot this one – please provide your WP admin login and password, as well as the website’s URL, to

Andrii / Satori Studio

Fixed! thanks so much, great support!

This is a very nice theme. I’m thinking about purchase but, Will it runs on wordpress 3.8? It is woocommerce compatible? Thank you

Hey Teclat,

thank you for expressing interest in Ikebana!

The current theme demo already runs on WP3.8, and is compatible with the latest version.

I haven’t specifically targeted WooCommerce compatibility while creating Ikebana, yet I’ve tried installing the plugin together with the theme and they seem to have no conflicts; please bear in mind, however, that 100% WooCommerce compatibility is not a part of this theme’s offer, thus I recommend using the plugin at own risk. In case of serious issues I do offer support to all buyer though – so if you do decide to go forth with Ikebana and find significant compatibility issues with WooCommerce, do not hesitate to approach me by creating a topic on my support forum.

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi, I am running WP 3.8. I tried using the shortcodes manually and it doesn’t work because the shortcodes builder is not showing up. I looked at the documentation and I see what I should be looking for but it is no longer around. When I put in the shortcodes manually, it just shows up as code. I tried in both Text and HTML editor.

Thanks, Gina

Hey Gina,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Could you please check if the built-in “Shortcodes” plugin has been installed? Since there are some formal limitations and WP theming standards do not allow including certain things inside the theme itself, some of the functionality is packaged as bundled plugins which should prompt to install automatically after you activate the theme.

Please let me know if the above information was helpful!

Andrii / Satori Studio

That fixed it THANK YOU!!!

Nice! :) Should you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Dear Andrii, This theme is excellent. your reaction for small and bigger our problems was great , your additional support on few modifications on theme according our needs was great!!! All this your help we had during all Set-up and Design process of our page.

Thanks you a lot. Good luck for you.

Thank you, Kestutis!

Glad that I could be of help ;)

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi! Considering purchasing this theme but would like to know if this supports rectangular/vertical pictures or does it format them square?

Hey 2Buy,

thank you for expressing interest in my work!

Ikebana allows adding images of any dimensions, yet the portfolio grid that you see on the front page of the theme demo allows having only square tiles of two different sizes (you can manually set the sizes from the theme’s admin panel) – all images that appear in the tiles will be cropped to fit a square area, regardless of the original proportions.

Should you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Thank you Andrii, very much appreciated xx

Hey Andrew,

This is regarding the same problem that user Feto had and I’m quoting the solution that you gave to him. And Please note that I have gone through EVERY relevant post regarding that same topic, here on Themeforest.

Hey NP,

I’ve gotten to the root of the problem! It was indeed my fault, a confusion between the names and the slugs of portfolio tags – since the theme demo has identical tag names and slugs, it was not surfacing during the development. With the current code the icon links can also work, provided that you make identical names and slugs for all tags – but I think this is an unreasonable limitation which may affect both usability and SEO.

I’ve modified your files so that the tag archive page URLs match the icon menu generated URLs: in the “Filter” field of the icon menu tags in the Theme Options panel, one will now need to input the slug of the tag and not its name (I’ve changed all the values for you). Please look at your website, the icon menu links seem to be working as intended now.

I sincerely apologize for the error, and for taking so long to understand you requests (I should’ve asked for admin access right away :) And -thank you for pointing out the issue, I will definitely include the fix and additional information into the upcoming theme update!

Best, Andrew / Satori Studuo

This hasn’t worked for me and I really would wish to get this solved. I would be happy to give you my login details.

Best, Alok

Hey Alok,

I believe if was you who was mentioned by your friend Sahil in a recent support email – if that is the case, there’s no need to send the verification code as I requested in the email; in case it was not you – sorry for the confusion, and skip this paragraph :)

Regarding your issue: the tag archive pages do not work because of the permalink structure – yours is set to Default, while the recommended one is “Post name”. I’ve tried changing the setting in “Settings -> Permalinks” admin menu, yet it seems that your .htaccess file is not writeable, so I cannot change it via the WP backend. Please login into your WP admin, go to “Settings -> Permalinks” and look at the very bottom of the page for instructions on how to make your .htaccess file work properly. Please let me know how it goes, and do not hesitate to contact me in case of further questions.
