Hi MeanThemes – do you still support Literary? last theme update 2019…

Hi there,

I believe I replied to your support ticket yesterday.

Yes, we still support this theme but we don’t plan to add new extra fancy features to it. We mostly focus on keeping it up to date and compatible with the latest WP versions :)

i sent a message through your contact form, your site says the ticket system is not working. my site looks terrible, the purchase code is not enough for wordpress because revolution slider was bundled with the theme. i have tried every which way to work through this alone. please help. www.mindful-mamma.com

Does anyone know what happened to all of the demo pages for this theme? None of the links in the documentation work anymore and the forum seems to have vanished.

Hi, what last version PHP supports the theme Literary? I am having this messege “WordPress has detected that your site is running on an insecure version of PHP.”

Hi There,

Apologies. It seems your comments didn’t get noticed. Can you please submit a Support ticket at meanthemes.ticksy.com.

Thanks MeanThemes Support Team

Dear meanthemes

Nice and clear theme! I have two things, first I would like to ask you how to replace one of the social icons to Wikipedia icon and second, I think there is a bug in the theme, when I chose from the ‘Reading Settings’ Posts page ‘Articles’, the images are getting small in the blog and the videos flow out of the main page, please see the screenshot here https://we.tl/ljnTAH6Gyu . It would be nice if there was a solution for this.

Thank you in advance, Dorothy

Hi Dorothy,

The video would be from the demo but it needs to be adjusted for the pages with sidebar. In our demo, the video is on a page which doesn’t have sidebar on it

Also, We have considered most of the social icons but never thought someone would ask for Wikipedia. We will need some custom coding to achieve the same. Once you purchase the theme, you can send over the support ticket through meanthemes.ticksy.com and we will be more than happy to do the minor changes.

Thanks MeanThemes Support Team

Thank you for your support regarding the Wikipedia :) My client has already bought the theme. I have all the documantation and the licence, but I do not have an access to my client Envatomarket account. Is there any other way to submit a ticket?

Thank you in advance

Hi Dorothy,

The most suitable way would be that your client verifies on our support forum and creates the ticket. Alternatively, You will have to share the license key over email so that we can verify the same. Please send it over at themes@meanthemes.com

Thanks MeanThemes Support Team

Hi, when I try to install it in my Wordpress, it says style.css missing. What should I do?

This is a common question which is why we have a featured article on our support channel: https://meanthemes.ticksy.com/article/511/

If you need anything else please log a ticket at https://meanthemes.ticksy.com/

thank you :)

Is there a limit to the number of books you can display? I’ve got 26 books and it looks like I can only post 25? Is there a place to change that setting?

Open a support ticket as I suggested above with administrator access to your website and I’ll take a look

I opened the ticket last night. Private Ticket #610899

Thanks, I’ve replied as you haven’t provided admin access.

Italics are no longer showing on my website, even though the text is surrounded by What can I do to correct?

Sorry—some of my message got lost. The text is surrounded by < e m > < / e m > (without spaces)

Hi there, please log a ticket at https://meanthemes.ticksy.com/ with the weblink so we can take a look.

I purchased the Literary theme on Oct. 19, paid and the theme is not yet available for download. My bank said the issue is on the side of Envato/the author as payment is considered pending (not batched). When will this process so I can access the files? Thank you.

Hi there, you’d need to contact Envato on this, the author (me) has no control over payments – it is all managed by Envato: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us

Hi! I’ve disabled sharing on all pages, but they’re still showing up on the lefthand side of the content. Any insight?

Hi there it’s hard to tell without a link. Please open a ticket at https://meanthemes.ticksy.com and make sure you send over the URL and we will take a look.

I love this theme. I think it’s a great layout for authors. I do have one question. Have you thought about adding ‘Reviews’ to the book section? I’d like to be able to put some in without cluttering up the blurb area. Or is there a way to add it in ourselves?

Thanks :) when you say reviews do you mean dynamic reviews? If you are adding them yourself you can use the short code for quote with rating, it does sit in the main content area though. We’re not planning on adding any other way of doing it than that at the moment.

I mean allowing your readers to leave reviews for your books.

I see, so a review system of some kind. It’s not something we’re going to add I’m afraid but there must be some plugins that provide that functionality out there. You would probably need to make some customisation for it to work. I suspect most people would be wary about having a review system and would prefer to cherry pick reviews and add them to the main content area.

Hi there I’m looking to get this Theme however I first wanted to check if we can have this in a Pink colour? I see there’s a CHild Theme included .. perhaps if you’ve not created Pink as the option you could provide me with the Code?

Many thanks in advance!


Yes I just saw! Thanks for your response anyway! Just purchased. Can I get my hands on the DEmo content please.


Thanks again!

Just spotted this too in the Theme file! You’re one step ahead! ;-)

Thanks for purchasing, you’ll find the demo content in the “All files & Documentation” via your Downloads tab… https://www.dropbox.com/s/t4pa5m6pemtfw6o/Screenshot%202015-07-01%2011.54.37.png?dl=0

It’s in the “Demo XML” folder, the theme documentation is in the “Theme Documentation” folder.

If you need anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact our support channel at https://meanthemes.ticksy.com/

Hi there, does this theme support a custom header image? Also, do you have any links to live websites using your theme?

Hi there! No it doesn’t have a custom header image, it does allow for a full sized background or logo (which could be any size). We don’t hold a list of people using Literary either sorry!

Hi, is there any way I can expand on the copyright text at the bottom of the page?

hi there, I’m not quite sure what you mean, do you mean expand what the copyright says or expand its container div? If you could put a support ticket in with all the details to https://meanthemes.ticksy.com then we’ll take a look.

Apologies for the simple question, but how do I centre my logo and tagline? It’s a little off compared to the blog posts below.

Can you send a link to https://meanthemes.ticksy.com so we can see what is happening please?

Hi there, does this have SEO in mind?

If you mean has it been built to best practices, then yes. We recommend using WordPress SEO by yoast for dealing with meta keywords, descriptions and titles.

Hi, im checking your demo on my iPhone 6 and two things bother me:

1- its floating from left to right as if it has juice left, it not tight.

2- the menu stock up and it wont traveled down or give option to go on top if the page anywhere. Which mean folks must scroll all the way up to switch page. can you fix these two issue?

Hi there we’ve got an iPhone 6 and can’t see either of those issues, can you explain further and send some screenshots over to themes@meanthemes.com and we’ll take a closer look please?

Hi I really like your theme but I wondered if the blog still had the follow/subscribe button. I would like my viewers to receive my posts via email.


Hi there, that is something you could do with a widget or plugin pretty easily. You could even use the announcement header to send someone off to subscribe to MailChimp or Campaign Monitor.


Tell us what you think!
