Having a major problem with this theme…can you please help!

  • Cannot get ANY thumbnails to appear on the Homepage Slider or on the Gallery pages.

I tried renaming the thumbs.php file (as documented on this site: but still no success.

Please help!!!


Is it possible to have a UI within the gallery so the user can change the sorting by date or by name?

Can you add a page layout for me to list the categories in the page with thumbnail for each categories?


Hi, I really love the look of the theme but I was wondering if it is possible to link the gallery items to an external page so that it opens in a new window – not a lightbox. I still want to be able to use a thumbnail and have the styling and mouseover transition – but I don’t want it to link to an image or video. I want it to open a new window with a flash slideshow.

I know you can open an iframe in a lightbox but I don’t like it. I prefer a separate window.

Also, is it possible to change the opacity of the mousover effect. I would like it to be more subtle.

What a bummer… The methods you stated to fix the timthumb issue didn’t work. I’m certain I’ve used timthumb with other themes and never really had an issue. I currently host with Bluehost.

Any ideas would be appeciated.

6th question – sorry! I have followed instructions to order my main navigation names but for some reason although I have changed the order under Menus, it is not reflected in the main site?

Q7. I have added subcategories as pages and then indented them as per video in the menu structure but I cannot see the sub categories at all?

Q8. On a roll now (!) How do I enter a profile photo? Cannot see how to add it in users.

Q9. Because i do not have the bitton called SCREEN OPTIONS at the top right hand side I am unable to follow your instructions to enter a description for the top level navigation?

Q10. Is it possible to add a thumbnail images to the blog page summary page?

Many thanks

Hi guys,

Just thought I’d add a suggestion for your next update. I would like to see a frame for images that adjusts to the size of your image vs. adjusting the image to the size to fit the frame. I know you use a sprite as opposed to code, but when adding odd-shaped images (that don’t scale down to you prefabbed frames), I had to add a lightbox snippet so it would enlarge so the clients could see it. Also, the availability to have image left-right-center would be nice.

Excellent theme! Great work!


Hi Scott,

Thank you for the kind words and thanks a lot for suggestions. The only issue with an ‘adjustable image frame’ is that the images would not be able to be automatically re-sized. The built in thumbnail script requires pre-set dimensions for the images. We will certainly consider adding the adjustable image frame for more advanced users.

Cheers and Blessings to you.


Great work on the theme! I love it, however, I’m having many issues regarding jquery slider images and cu3er images that don’t show up on my homepage.

You can see the example here :

Even though the images are linked to the correct path for CU3ER, and the “featured image” is checked in Home Post 1 and Home Post 2 – a ”#” appears instead of the image.

Can you help me out ?

Thanks a lot !

Hi there Visio,

Glad that you are liking the new theme.

The thumbnail issue is likely related to folder permissions on the web server. Please check out the FAQ page for more details about how to remedy this issue:

As per the homepage, it will be very helpful if we can log into your site and have a closer look behind the scenes so we can help to remedy the issue. Please kindly email us temporary wordpress login information and we will have a look and get you all squared away. Please just be sure to reference your comment with a link to your site so we know what the issue is. email: support [at]

Excellent theme. One of my top 3 purchases on ThemeForest!

Two quick issues.

1) For some reason the fonts display differently on Safari than FF. This doesn’t seem to happen with other themes and sites. Any tips?

2) My Featured Images are not showing on the slider or blog posts. I have changed the permissions to 777 as referenced in an earlier comment but no change. Any thoughts?


Hi There,

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you like the theme. :)

As per your questions:

1) The fonts are displaying nicely in Safari on our end. Which version of Safari and which operating system on your end?

2) Some web servers require whitelisting for the thumbnail script to function properly. We have provided a message below. Please kindly forward this message to your hosting provider tech support and they should have no troubles getting you up and running.

If you require further assistance, please contact us via email at: support [at]

We prefer email over themeforest message board because the message board does not notify us of new comments


Message to Hosting:

Dear Host,

I recently updated my WordPress website with a theme that uses the timthumb.php thumbnail generator.

I have learned that in order for it to work properly My Hosting provider may need to change a few settings for my website. When I try to run timthumb I receive a 404 error.

I need the following rules [1234234,340151, 340153] added to mod_security for my website. I may also require the following 2 items added to my .htaccess file:

SecFilterEngine Off

SecFilterScanPost Off

Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

Great Theme! Look forward to it looking like the thumbnail

I have a question after purchase (thanks for previous response btw)

I have set my home page to have 3 text columns, but despite watching the vids (maybe I missed it) I cannot work out how you add the thumbnails above each separate column of text?

Can you enlighten me please?

Many thanks, I’m loving this theme :)

If it had an e-commerce facility in built – I doubt I would ever use another theme again :)

Hi There,

Glad to hear you are liking the theme.

You can copy and past the shortcode we provide below or we have outlined the steps below for your reference.

You can add thumbnails by using the point and click shortcode manager. Simply go to your dashboard and Edit your homepage. Next, click in the content area wherever you wish to add the image. Next, pop open the shortcode manager and scroll down the list to the “Image Frames” section. Then simply choose between “Modern Style (3 columns)” or “Shadow Style (3 columns)” – whichever style you prefer. Lastly just fill in the image URL, description, and link URL if you wish to link this image. (users will not see the description. this is the alt tag).

I hope this information is helpful.

Shortcode example:

[modernframe size="modern_three_col_large" image_path="" description="enter description here" link_to_page="" ]

Tim thumb (thumbs.php) is not working at all on my site. I’m using WP 3.1 All images are coming up broken links. help!

Hi There,

Some web servers have security settings that don’t play nicely with the thumbnail script. This might be causing your images not to show up. Please try the following steps. We can also do all of this for you if you prefer. We’ll just need to to send over some temporary FTP login access.

- Log into your server via FTP and open up this folder: wp-content/themes/Karma/functions/ - Within that folder you will see a folder named “cache” and a folder named “temp” - Give full permission to both of those folders (777). This may fix the issue.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I’ve looked through the demo throughly and watched the portfolio video and can’t find an answer.

Can you get a gallery item to link to another gallery? Like in the homepage 4 column section. With thumbnail, title, excerpt and learn more. I am assuming while the homepage thumbnails link right to a page, I can get them to open lightbox, is this so?


Hi There,

I’m not 100% I understand your request, but let me know if this is correct? Would you like to create a page that looks exactly like the 4 column portfolio layout, but instead of the thumbnails linking to the jquery popup they will link somewhere else throughout your site?

When using the gallery templates, the items will only link to the jquery popup. You can however very easily create a “portfolio page look a like”. You would do so by simply creating a new page and selecting the full width layout. Then just use the point and click shortcode manager to insert your columns and framed images. If you need any assistance with this please feel free to send us an email, we’re happy to help. Email address is: support [at]



This is an elegant and very functional template. Very impressed. Ticks all my boxes. I have 3 question as I have an extremely fussy client.

For the blog thumb nail images can the user resize them. I checked your short-codes for the thumbs and unfortunately there not what I need.

1. Can these sizes be configured to any size or are they resized automatically 2. Can the user have variable thumb sizes like landscape or portrait example link 3. As much as I love the frames and shadows can these be removed (fussy client) 4. Will the videos sit in the same wire frame as the thumb nail images on blog page?

Fantastic template and very impressed with your testimonials.

Hi There,

Thanks a lot for your interest in Karma.

In response to your questions:

1) There is no built in way to manually resize the blog thumbnails, though its certainly possible, and not all that complicated via changing the code.

2) This depends. If you are using one of the pre-built gallery templates all of the thumbnail images are the same size and can’t be different size. However, if you’d like the page to look similar to the link you sent over, you can simply use one of the other page templates such as the right sidebar template or the full width template, and then the user can just insert their images of different sizes via the wordpress content editor.

3) These can be removed, but not from the admin interface. You’ll need to make the change in the CSS code.

4) Videos do not sit in those image frames on the initial blog page. Those frames are for post-thumbnail images. You can however modify the template to your needs.

If code customization isn’t really your thing you might want to consider checking out You can hire wordpress experts from around the wrold who can handle all of your coding requests. You can post a listing for a job and get an estimate on any customizations and then you can determine if its worth the investment for you.

I hope this helps.
