My sidebar just dropped to the bottom of my inner pages. I have tried deactivating all plugins, purged the cache and even installed a fresh version of the theme, and it does not fix this. I need suggestions asap, it is a campaign page and voting starts tomorrow. Here is the site, hope you understand why i don’t put the direct address in here: http://tinyurl.com/jl82tgs

I just purchased this theme. However the addon for the mailchimp tool is not available anymore. Can you send me a copy of yours for simplicity. My email is complicatable@gmail.com

Hello FPSPurple,

Thanks for getting in touch. I’m aware of that issue and have been trying to contact the developer of that plugin for a status update on its availability. In the mean time, I’ve been recommending to use the following:


If you have any other questions, go ahead and send a direct message:


Alright, I sent it in. It just has to do with styling. Hope to hear back from you. Here’s my issue: https://i.gyazo.com/f01021ffbba79c5eecbfdcc70b22d536.png

You never got back to my reply?

My clients site has a fatal error on the site:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function register_nav_menus() in /wp-content/themes/legislator/functions.php on line 70

I’ve tried contacting your support with no response. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there, Is it possible to use this theme with Visual Composer? Thanks,

Hello! Yes, you can certainly use the Visual Composer with this theme.

Hi, I have installed the template and demo content. However, the home page style is not exactly like what you created in live preview. My website is buzzfingers.com. Please check and advise. Thank you

Hi. Where can I edit the Video and Mailchimp form at home page?

Please send a message through our support form for direct assistance (Basic Support) and I’ll be happy to help further :)


Is it possible to change the number of columns in the footer widget area? I want just one text widget that takes up the entire area. Do I need to use a child theme to do this?

Hi Kyle,

This is definitely possible. It can be done with or without a child theme. The simplest way is to use a bit of CSS to make the column 100% width. Feel free to get in touch directly through our support contact form:


Hello, How can I get the exact Donate Form that the Live Preview has? It looks much cleaner. Must customer is having a hard time letting that look go, rather than the Seamless Donations form.

Thanks for your question! This knowlegebase article should set you in the right direction but if not, feel free to send us a message from our support contact form:

Instead of reply by private messages why not answer the comment here so that buyers can setup their blog without delays. Many are asking simple things to change on the homepage. Like how to change the video. Why make it so hard? Why not reply here? Why not just provide the instructions on the documentation. I regret buying this theme. How do I change the video on the homepage????

Hi opentech. Until Envato allows us to disable comments from viewing publicly that offer support to paying customers, I’ll only be able to provide one-on-one direct support.

As for the video on the home page, it’s a widgetized area so place a text widget into the “Home Hero Area” and paste your video embed code into it.

What if you do not want to include the four large widgets in the footer? There is no way to delete this information. I tried to remove it from the stylesheet but it left a lot of space. There are not a lot of options with this theme which sucks because it’s really appealing, and I am trying but I’m not getting a response.

I responded to your direct messages within minutes. Your agression is quite unnecessary even though I’m more than willing to help. As mentioned before, support is offered through my profile page contact form:


If you want other support options that include customization, see the support tab:


How do you remove the top bar w/ logo? I do not want it displayed.

I just purchased this theme, and need to know how to add the “Take Action” on the homepage and how to add my video. I’ve looked through your documentation and these instruction are not included. I’ve seen multiple question with the same problem. Could you post a solution on the board? I now have to wait for a reply and I wanted to get this site up and running. The documentation is not clear about homepage edits.

Hey Michelle, I’m happy to help! Just send me a message through my profile page contact form:


Thanks. I replied via private message


How do I replace the mailchimp form at the top of the home page and instead use a Campaign Monitor form? What file and what code would need to be changed to the campaign monitor code?

Hi henixu,

You’ll just want to place the widget you’d like to use (Campaign Monitor, in this case) into the home hero area.

If you need more details about that, feel free to get in touch with me directly through my profile page contact form:


I was nervous as this was my first time using Wordpress and using this theme made it very simple. This theme made my life so much easier. I would recommend to a friend.

Thanks Dylan! I just sent you a message. :)

I have send you a direct ticket, but didnt get any response, so here is my question again:

How can i upload my own favicon?


yes, nothing unfrotunately. Should I open a new ticket?

I’ll resend to your email. :)

got it thanks a lot!

On the front page, is it possible to display the full news posts rather than an extract?

Thanks, Graham

Yes! Get in touch through my profile page contact form and I’ll be happy to help:


Also how can the change the navigation font?

Hi nebtones. Send me a message from my profile page contact form and I’ll assist:


Please how can I edit, remove or change the you tube video on the home page of this theme. Please reply me intermediately. Thanks

Hi nebtones. Simply add a widget to that area. For support requests, you should get in touch with me directly through my profile page contact form:


is this theme translation ready ?

Hi pravdamien. Yes, it’s translation ready. Translations files will be located within the /languages/ folder of the theme.

Hi, I have just purchased the theme and would like to add a full length banner instead of text, video and Mail Chimp login on Homepage top.. Please suggest.

Hi princejainmba, Thanks for getting in touch. :)

The home template accommodates a left and right widget in the top hero section. If you’d like to make that full width for a full length banner, you’ll just want to customize the template-home.php file in the theme. Of course if you’re needing to customize the theme files, you should use a child theme so that your edits don’t get overwritten by a theme update.

What service does the Donate feature use?

Can I hook up my PayPal to collect the donations?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your questions. The theme is using the Seamless Donations plugin which accepts payments through Paypal.
