Since 2017 without updates. Is there any update to the template?

Hey escorpro,

Koala is compatible with the latest version of WordPress (5.6 at the time of writing) from our testing. If you are having any compatibility issues please get in contact via our support site so we can investigate further. If your support license has expired you can still submit bug reports via the ‘Bug Report’ category.

Hey there!

Are you guys planning an update to make it Gutenberg optimized?

Does it work with the latest Wordpress release?

I’m very interested and love the theme.

Looking forward for your answer, Regards

Hey cheloco,

Thanks for your comments and interest in Koala.

Koala is compatible with the Gutenberg editor and the latest release of WordPress – our live demo is currently running the latest version.

We will be releasing an update for Koala in the near future which will add further Gutenberg optimization such as editor styling, new alignment options, and custom blocks.

Can you tell me where you can edit the background post-slider-background?

Hey Cmxbawz,

The cover background will use the featured image assigned to currently displayed post. This can be assigned within your post options, under the ‘Featured Image’ section.

If you need further assistance with this, or have any questions please get in contact via our support site and we will be happy to assist.

Hi Guys, i need to change the theme folder name to protect my site. I’ve changed the folder name and matched it to the style files. What about the functions.php? Do i have to change the Theme_id and Theme Name there as well including the ‚koala‘ in lines like: ‘primary’ => esc_attr__(‘Primary Menu’, ‚koala‘)?

Hey incubuss,

Changing the theme directory name will have no effect on the security of your WordPress install – regardless this can be changed without any edits to the theme files.

If you have any further questions please submit a new ticket on our support site and we will be happy to assist.

Hi, how customizable is the homepage layout? Do u have sample views of how the homepage could look like?

Hey l3ernarcl,

Thanks for your interest in Koala.

Koala is a blog style theme, opposed to a page-builder theme. The frontpage content is determined by your blogs posts and post options. In the live demo you will see a demonstration of all posts areas, such as the slider, grid, post-list and sidebar sections (which are customizer via widgets).

hi there! I’m thinking about purchasing your theme. However, I wasn’t sure if you support other Home page versions? I.e. I don’t need a large banner at the top of a page. I only need the staff that is underneath (posts section). Please let me know if it’s customisable.

Best, Jo

Hey Jo,

Thanks for your interest in Koala.

There is single homepage style (which is shown in the live demo), however this is customizable via the included theme options. If no posts are assigned to the slider or grid header section then it will not be shown.

After update to wp 4.7.2 customizer does not work. I disabled all plugins and nothing. I tested it with two other of your themes and the result is the same. I suppose conflicts.

Hey FlavioAlfi,

We have no current issues with the customizer and WordPress version 4.7.2. Please submit a ticket on our support site so we can investigate further.

How do I bulk change the ‘Theme Post Options” for all posts. It’s currently set too Standard (Minimal) as the default on install. I want all posts to be Banner (Half Page).

Going manually through each post will take a very long time. Please advise.

Hey osmanham,

Thanks for your purchase of Koala.

We just responded to your support ticket regarding this.

Hi, i just imported the demo. However, I can’t find the page example for Category page. In fact, all menu elements links right back to the main page. How can I have those page examples so I can work from that?

Hey team_guiker,

Thanks for your purchase of Koala.

The category pages are auto-created when you assign a new post category – these can be edited via the ‘Posts – Categories’ section of your dashboard. If you’re having issues with this create a ticket on our support site and we will be happy to assist.

Hello,

How can I create widget with authors list? With photo, full name and title like this one >> https://postimg.org/image/an3wtqqv1/

Thank you!

Hey kordzi,

Thanks for your purchase of Koala.

Please create a ticket on our support site and we will be happy to assist with this.

I have already submitted.

And two more questions:

1) How to set link of avatar and user name. I want to redirect (on click) to this user (author) page. https://postimg.org/image/452bdfh9f/

2) I have installed Facebook Login plugin, and it is working well, but the avatar is not changing. I have tried few more plugins and the problem is the same. I do not want to send users to https://en.gravatar.com/ just for avatar. I want to make this process simple.

Thank you!
