I know this theme is old, but I still love it. Haven’t found anything similar. BUT….the “cover images” of the front page are loaded via background CSS URLs which prevent any type of Lazy Loading – at least with the standard tools.

Has anybody figures out a way how to support LazyLoad with this theme? For the blog-overview page?

Hello, I am the user of your Theme, thank you for bringing such a good work, because I am the creator of Chinese blog from Malaysia, I found that the Ink Theme could not detect the reading time of Chinese, no matter how long the article is, it always shows that the reading time is one minute, could you please tell me any solution?

is this theme still being supported and constantly updated?

Is restrict content pro compatible with all other themes you have?

I want to use restrict content with your Blink theme instead of Ink

Hi there,

Yes, our themes are still actively maintained. And as advertised, only Ink is fully compatible with Restrict Content Pro.

Let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

Hello. I am ready to buy one of your blog templates Ink, OM etc. I want a membership blog thats the customer pays and then access the article. Is this site ready for membership plugins(free or paid), or it works only with restrict content pro?

Hi there TechnoVic,

Out of the box, we only support restrict content pro for memberships in Ink, therefore we haven’t tested any other membership plugins with it although any other third-party membership plugins should work but wherever an additional page is loaded via that plugin it might need some extra customization user interface side.

Hope this helps out

Hi there, love your themes (I have two now). How do I change the default featured image that appears on the site when there is no post-generated image? I have a default image that I’d like to have populate it. Currently there’s a weird grey image. Also, is there anyway to make the site logo any larger? It’s really small. http://sittingnow.co.uk/wp-admin/customize.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsittingnow.co.uk%2F

Hi there @SittingNow

Appreciate your kind words!

Now about your questions, there is no such option provided in the theme to set a default post featured image, though you can follow this article to achieve the same with the help of third-party plugins – https://enviragallery.com/how-to-set-a-default-featured-image-in-wordpress/.

You can control the site logo size using the below CSS, make sure to apply it in Additional CSS tab at Customizer -

.custom-logo { width: 350px; height: 200px; }

Let us know if you have any further questions at https://codestag.com/support

I have a question before I purchase, can I start using the theme to start creating article and add the membership functionality later down the line without losing the content?

Hi there @tiburonsita,

Yes you totally can do that.

In case of any further queries, You can create a ticket at https://codestag.com/support. Plus you can also expect a shorter wait time for support replies there.

I just added/updated the Ink Assistant, and now my site is completely down. I can’t refresh pages, can’t get to my dashboard, and can’t even get to my plugins page to disable it. That’s the only thing I’ve changed.

Hi there @mattmonge

We did receive your ticket at support and a swift reply has also been sent to you, but we haven’t heard anything back from you.

I’ll request you to please respond to your support ticket about the same, we’ll be happy to assist you.

Hope this helps

In the last update all the “Section” widgets have disappeared. I had to revert back to the last version before the update.

Hi there @rawFrenzy,

The widgets have been exported to a new INK assistant plugin which comes with the theme update and is required to run the theme now. These changes have been done to adhere with the new Themeforest guidelines for WordPress themes.

You can install the assistant plugin via the Install Plugins menu which will show up at Appearance.

If you’re experiencing any issues doing this please create a ticket at codestag.com/support we’ll be glad to to help. Plus you can also expect a shorter wait time for support replies there.

Hope this helps

The scrolling doesn’t work correctly in mobile devices… only works if you turn the device in horizontal mode.

Hi there Cyberneco,

Can you please give us a link to your site in order for us to check this for you?

Waiting for your response

Hi, I have a few quick pre-purchase queries: 1- Do posts appear only in grid layout? Is there a non-grid option where the post title appears below or above the image? 2- Is it possible to reduce the post content width on desktop?

Looking forward to your response. Thanks!

Hi there,

Sorry about the delays. To answer your questions:

1. Yes, there are such layout options available. This screenshot should give you some idea: https://f.codest.ag/tIugDt

2. Yes, with help of some custom CSS this is entirely possible. Let us know if you need help in that case.


Hello this is pre purchase question.

Can i have multiple users who can post their own posts on the website, and could they have their profile pages as well, showing all of their posts.

Is there an option to show only the most viewed posts on the front page?

And lastly is there a reaction to the post that some one had posted, like upvote or domething?


I have a question: Does the Ink theme have an archive page or “all blogs” page? Can you send me a demo link for it?

I would like to have the floating bar feature after buying the same theme on this site: https://markmanson.net/fake-freedom, any suggestions?

Can you guys please update the change log for this theme?

Hi there,

You can always find the changelog within the root of theme in file ‘changelog.txt’. We’ll be updating the demo as well shortly.


Hello – great theme. With the WordPress 5.1.1 update though I am now getting an error message on posts:

Warning: Illegal string offset 'char-count' in /home/safeats1/public_html/wp-content/themes/ink/stag-customizer/stag-customizer.php on line 483

In posts, the Cover Opacity option defaults to 40 if any edits are made, and this error message then appears.

Appreciate any suggestions to resolve.


Thanks CodeStag team for advising that the issue is related to an API link with the Envato Market plugin and that I’ll need to do a manual reinstall of the theme to upgrade it to the current version.

Hi !

I’d like to purchase your theme but first I’d like to know if it’s possible to translate it to portuguese(also the plugin Restrict Content Pro) ? Maybe with Wpml…


Hi, yes it is definitely possible with WPML. Supports quite a number of languages. Thanks!

I want to replace my blog theme with your theme. can you send me email id so I can let me know my requirments. I have very small questions.

Hi there,

Just head to https://themeforest.net/user/codestag and use the “Email Codestag” box in right sidebar to send us a message. We’d be happy to answer any/all question you have.

Thanks and all the best.

Done, Please check

Just noticed RCP dropped a new version 7 days ago, lots of changes and updates. Have you tested it, will it break anything in your latest version, are you going to post update? Thanks guy

Hi there, we are working on an update for Ink, please stay tuned. Many thanks fr the input.

You have announced that you are “Gutenberg Ready”. Whereas on the side panel, it says “Gutenberg Optimized: NO”. Could you please clarify. Thanks

Hi there,

Sorry about the delays in response. It was Gutenberg ready for sure. The sidebar entry was new so we definitely missed it there. We recently released an update too making it more functional.

Let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks.
