Hi. I would like to buy KANSO theme, but first I want to ask if there is possibility to enable comments in blog section. The second quesition is about Revolution Slider. Could it be whole as a link or only a button on it?

Please give me an answer, Best regards, Michal

Thank you so much for your support. I have a last guestion :) I cant upload logo in retina resolution. I follow instruction on website but the resolution is still low. Could you help me ?

Hey Michael,

do you mean that even though you’ve uploaded a double-sized logo in the Theme Options panel, the logo resolution stays low on hi-resolution devices? Could you please send me access details to your website’s WP admin panel to support@satoristudio.net? Thanks!

Yes, exactly. I have send you an e-mail. Thanks !!

Is it possible to include video in the homepage slider?

Hey Gijsheerkens,

thank you for expressing interest in Kanso, and my apologies for the delay in this reply!

To answer your question – yes, it is possible to include a video into any of the slides; it can either be a self-hosted mp4/webm/ogv video or one uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo.

Should you have additional questions about the theme do not hesitate to contact me.

Is there a way to put the same social icons from the header also on the footer on the same line as the Copyright text? (floating right).

Hey Fxscreamer,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

To answer your question: this hasn’t been envisaged as a ready-made back-end setting, yet you can achieve this by using some code: add this into the “Copyright text” field in the “Page Elements” tab of the Theme Options panel -

<div class="alignleft">Copyright © 2014. All rights reserved.</div>
<div class="alignright"><i class="fa fa-facebook" /></div>

This is just a template to get you going; you can add more text into the first div or more social icons into the second (please see the respective snippets on the Font Awesome icon repository).

When I click on a filter on the main portfolio category it does not show all the images that it should. Only the first four, any idea why?

Hi Andrii, I sent a message to this username with login information to the website. Thanks.

I also tried everything I know to resize the Page title h2 text to something smaller, and I cant move the contact text to the left. It’s all the way to the right

Hey Joe,

thank you for the details! Regarding the portfolio filter on the front page: the “Portfolio” section works based upon a custom query, and it loads 6 items on the page (or the amount specified in the “Number of portfolio projects per page” setting in the “One-Page Website” tab of the Theme Options panel); no additional items are being loaded when a filter is clicked, which is why the filters will not reveal new items, rather only filter the projects that are already there on the page. To display more projects from specific types while filtering, I would recommend increasing the overall number of projects that is displayed on the page, using the above mentioned Theme Options setting.

Concerning the H2 title font size: I’ve added some custom code into the “Style: Add Custom CSS” section of the Theme Options panel, please have a look (the very bottom).

Regarding the contact text: from the website I can see that the text in the “Contact” section is left-aligned – has this issue been solved in the meanwhile?

As an aside: I would highly recommend reducing the size of slider images by downsampling and/or downscaling them, since at the moment some of them are quite large (>1Mb each) which greatly affects the website’s loading speed.

Hi there,

Tried to register with your support site but it kept failing and I couldn’t complete it so contacting you here.

Very happy with the theme apart from one issue that we can’t resolve. We have one-page site setup with an image below the navigation that has parallax effect on it. This looks fine until you scroll down the page, after which the image position moves up the page about 6cm creating a large white gap. It then stays there and no longer moves.

Could you help me with this?

Many thanks,


Hey Duncan,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

I will look into the forum registration issue, my apologies for this problem.

Regarding your question, could you please provide the URL of the page in question, in case it is available online? Looking at the actual code will give me more information for an actionable recommendation. Thanks!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Hi Andrii,

Thank you for the fast reply, the website in question is: http://malmesbury-rtc.co.uk/

Cheers for you help with this.

Hey Duncan,

I’ve looked into the issue, and found that there’s indeed a bug – the code for the parallax included all possible scenarios except one – when there is no header slider, AND the parallaxed image is right after the menu. I’ve prepared a fix – please download this archive, unzip it, and upload the resulting file into the theme folder on your server (/wp-content/themes/Kanso/) via FTP or the hosting provider’s file manager. My apologies for the bug, and please let me know if the fix works for you!

On the live preview page of kanso the “Link” items on the potfolio section show a little image on the bottom right with a link symbol.

When I create a portfolio item and set the post type to link this little thumbnail on the bottom right does not appear. Any clue as to why?

Hey Elmarw,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

Please try ticking the “Link” checkbox in the “Display project type icons in portfolio” option on the “Portfolio Page” tab of the Theme Options panel, and then refresh your page. If this does not help, please let me know!

Sincerely, Andrii / Satori Studio

How do we stop the theme from adding Google Analytics code? We are using Tag Manager to fire analytics code, and do not want the theme to add the analytics code.

Hey Futuretarm,

first of all, thank you for the purchase!

The GA code that is contained within the theme uses the GA user code from the “Analytics” tab of the Theme Options panel. In case no user code is inserted, the theme’s GA code should not have any effect because it’s useless without it.

If, however, you wish to completely get rid of the theme’s GA code snippet, please download this custom archive I’ve prepared for you, unzip it, and upload the resulting file into the theme folder (/wp-content/themes/Kanso/), replacing the existing file.

Hi I seem to be having trouble using the multi-page. When I try to go to my website (mollymartirez.com), it directs me to a blank page. I have to manually click on the Home button to get to the page desired. Is there a way to fix this issue? Also, I can’t seem to add the google maps feature. I hope you can help me with this issue! Thanks.

Best, Molly

Dear Molly,

I’ve replied to your email; please have a look. I will also duplicate the message here, just in case:

The images upload was not working properly in the Theme Options panel because of the way WordPress handles attachments: when you upload the image, there are three options in the “Link URL” field before you press the “Add to Option Tree” button: “None”, “File URL”, and “Attachment Post URL”. The second one is normally the default, but sometimes it may slip to the third option which does not allow the Theme Options panel to use the image properly. This is covered in the “Theme Options” section of the theme manual, page 3:

“In case the „File URL” field displays an attachment URL (ending with „?attachment_id=xx”) press the „File URL” button below the url field so that the link is a direct url of the image file (ends with the filename of the uploaded file). Once you have chosen the item and settings, press „Add to OptionTree”.

I’ve done this for you now (in fact, uploaded a logo to test that it’s working as it should), so next time you don’t need to do it anymore.

Regarding the slider question: since you are using the slider variant which automatically stretches to the entire width and height of the screen, and since you are using images to display the text on the slider, on some screens with specific display dimensions some of it will inevitably get cropped. I recommend either choosing a fixed-width and height slider in the slider’s overall settings (“Revolution Slider” admin menu), and adding text as separate elements (go to edit the particular slide, and below the preview choose “Add layer”, which will allow you to add, style, and position text that will be rendered using text rather than images.

Thank you SO much, Andrii! You’ve helped me in so many ways and can’t thank you enough. That pretty much ends all the questions for now.

Glad to hear I was able to assist ;) Should you face any other difficulties, do not hesitate to contact me!

Andrii / Satori Studio

Can you tell me how to undo the auto underlining and capitalizing of text throughout the site? It seems to do it everywhere… Navigation, Page Titles, Footer titles, Sidebar Titles. Thanks!

I just downloaded and replaced my files, but it’s not changing that alignment issue.

Hey Natroneus008,

I’ve realized that I still have access to the website’s back-end for an earlier conversation, so I’ve modified the one-page template to accommodate for the issue (please check your website now). I will also include this small fix into the next version of the theme. Thank you for bringing this up, and my apologies for any inconveniences!

Sincerely, Andrii / Satori Studio

Awesome – thank you! I’ll email a link to my screen cast. This one doesn’t jitter, but has a flashing like above the portfolio items.

Hi, I have two quick questions about the multi-page layout. I would like to set the homepage so it shows the recent blog entries, can I hide the header photo and also have a right sidebar? Also can I have a right sidebar for each individual blog post? Thanks!

Hey pink378,

thank you for expressing interest in my work!

As with most other WP themes, Kanso can be configured to display a blog posts view on the home page; however, there is only one template for the blog in the theme, and it’s the one displayed on this page of the demo (i.e. there’s no ready-made blog layout with sidebar, to implement it you would need to apply some code customization). Each individual post can have any of the three layouts: left sidebar, right sidebar, or full-width.

Should you have more questions about the theme, do not hesitate to contact me.

Sorry if this question has been asked and answered but I can’t find an answer. I want to change the color of the active page box on the menu from black to a softer gray. How do I do that? I saw the menu option to change the hover box, but not the active page box.


Hey Boxlessmedia

the active page box color in the primary menu is affected by the same setting which governs the hover menu item boxes, i.e. “Menu hover frame color” in the “Style: Header” tab of the Theme Options panel. In case you want the active item box to be different from the hover box, you’ll need to add some custom CSS:

#nav-primary a.menu-selected { border-color: #999999; }

replacing, if needed, the #999999 with the desired color in hex notation. You can add the CSS code into the “Style: Add Custom CSS” tab of the Theme Options panel.

Hi, I’m interested in buying your template. To be honest I don’t have much any coding skills. Will this be easy to manage and setup? I pretty much want it to look like the one you’ve setup for http://satoristudio.net/themedemo/?theme=kanso . Is the non coding skills a problem?

Hey RichMonDons,

thank you for expressing interest in Kanso! No technical skills are required to get the theme up and running; there is a detailed manual and demo content included with the theme to simplify the process of setting up an exact copy of the demo website. In case of any difficulties or questions regarding the usage of Kanso I’m glad to be of assistance; support is available via dedicated Satori forums, by email, or using item comments here on ThemeForest.

Sincerely, Andrii / Satori Studio

Hello, I bought Kanso a while ago and been using it since then. Recently I’ve been trying to add a third-level submenu but for some reason it won’t appear. I have a multi-page site. Second level will appear but not third level. Is there something I have to enable to make it work? Thanks for your time!

Hey @audiomatiks, thank you for reporting this one! We’ve submitted an update to the theme, which should be live by Tuesday, fixing this issue.

Sincerely, Andrii / Satori Studio

in fact, it’s already live right now :) review queue is fast today!

Best, Andrii / Satori Studio

I.m having an issue with the menus, No matter what I do I cant delete an item for the menu. I’ve deleted it multiple times and re-added the menu and it always shows up. I also toe main menus showing up no matter how I configure it – very frustrating. Please help! Thanks.

Found it! It’s the one-page site option that is causing the issue.

Hello and congratulations on the theme. I love it. Just a question: How can I add another “Custom social network” in the “Header Social Icons” section?

Adding WPML languages to the main menu hasn’t been envisaged as a back-end setting in the theme so far; in order to achieve this, the most straightforward way is to insert the needed template tag (e.g. wpml_add_language_selector) into the header.php theme file, line 149. Another way would be to add direct links to localized versions of the front page as custom items to the main menu via “Apperance – Menus”, but in this case they will lead to translations of the front page from any internal page as well.

How can I add a direct link that links another language in the onepage menu? The “Apperance – Menus” is not reflected in the onepage version.

There is the template option which implies adding the respective language switcher code into the theme’s header.php file.
