Q2.Why Blog timelines is 2016 are 201, 1999 are 199. it’s just a three letters.

I’ll waiting for somebody anser.


thank you for your fast answer. this is my test site. I using your sample data + a few copy data.


I saw the html souce about Years, it’s just three letters only.

Thank you for the URL, the problem might be from Japanese lacation of your wordpress, I will check it on my test server and make a fix, will let you know when it done

thanks i’ll wating for you.

Hi. Great theme, but I have one pre-sale question. In the demo on the portfolio page you have Share icons. There is not a word in the documentation on how to customize these buttons. And that’s exactly what I need.

Hello, thank you for your message. Unfortunately they are not customizable, what icons do you want to add/remove?

Aromis Purchased

is this still supported / ?

Hello, yes I make updates from time to time, do you have any issues?

Aromis Purchased

Yes i sent a message in the support email, but basically the blog aspect is having issues where i cant rename to journal and the timeline aspect is not functional

Hello, I remember I answered the email, please check your spam folder.

It looks like you use default Wordpress blog template, please open Settings > Reading and change “Post page” to “Select”, then open your Journal in Page section and set “Template” to any with “Blog”.

“Page Builder By Mallini” Plugin is not installed, How to download it? where can I find it?

Hello, the Page builder must be in Plugin folder of the theme main folder, it must be installed automatically but sometimes gets a bug. Also you can install Elementor plugin, it’s free and has more functions.

good morning. I want to know if the video portfolio allows you to choose any to put at the top of the page. Or are they sorted by upload date?

Hello, thank you for your question.

Portfolio items are sorted by Publish date by default, also you can sort them by name, slug or random.

If you want to put something on top you should change publish date (plus/minus few minutes is enough)

Hi Mallini. I really like the Manggis theme for a video portfolio site. Is it possible to have a fullscreen video on the homepage above the portfolio grid? Is it also possible to create the video portfolio grid of regular 16:9 previews? Thanks

Hello, thank you for your questions.

Unfortunately there is no such option as fullscreen video in the theme, you can only have video portfolio grid with 16:9 previews if you set featured images with this aspect ratio.

Plexx theme has big video for header – https://plexx.mallinidesign.com/portfolio-3-video-margins/?color_scheme=dark-scheme

Hi, thanks for explaining. Regarding Eskimon’s question above about adding text under a video when it is opened. Please can you explain further or upload a screen grab of how this would look?

Hello, yes it has option for plain text under video lightbox in new version, you can see screenshot here – https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoqI2pwIklO5i4cCEl36XPPK5tvLSA?e=pBAgRx

About screen grabs, it’s not very convenient in Wordpress, you should make a screenshot or any still by yourself and upload it as Featured image in Portfolio Project, I have video tutorial for my other template but idea the same – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0bcle54qZo

In the video portfolio, is it possible to have some text under the video when it is opened? Need to write a little text like, Name of Work, agency, what my job was, etc..

Hello, thank you for your question.

Yes it’s possible in the new version of the template but it will be just a line under video in lightbox.

Hey mallini, I’m considering buying the Kazron theme for my homepage, but have a few questions first and would be happy if you could answer them.

So first off I’m a Cinematographer and really like the dark theme. I would love to have a fullvideo background for the homepage embedded from a vimeo video that would start on click, is something like that possible with your theme? also could I make the Menu background transparent for that purpose?

Second question is if it would be possible to have a mixed portfolio of pictures and videos like in your plexx theme?

Third and last question is if it would be possible to have the logo/title centered in the Middle above the Menu?

Thank you for making this amazing theme! Leo

Hello, thank you for your message.

I think you are talking about Manggis theme, but Plexx is more suitable for video, for example this page – https://plexx.mallinidesign.com/portfolio/portfolio-3-video/ – Vimeo fullwidth plus portfolio, is that you want?

About transparent menu, it’s not possible in Manggis and possible in plexx with Custom CSS code which I can give you.

Mixed portfolio (video and images in lightboxes) is available in both themes.

Centered logo also possible only in Plexx – https://plexx.mallinidesign.com/journal/blog-packery/?color_scheme=dark-scheme&navigation_style=6

Hello, I installed the theme, but I can not find the portfolio and page builder options. I can not add any videos. Please help me.

Hello, thank you for your message.

First of all check if all necessary plugins are installed properly. Second setep is installing Demo content from XML file or you can send me your URL and admin access to my support email and I will help you with creation few test pages.

OptionTree plugin can not be installed: Something went wrong with the plugin API

Hello, thank you for your message.

Yes the author of plugin has recently deleted it from Wordpress database, so now you have to install it manually from here – https://www.dropbox.com/s/09oe995kmrqat6y/option-tree.zip

Or you can send me URL and admin access to my support email and I will do it for you.

Hello. I have a Error 500 – Internal Server Error

An error was encountered while processing your request. Typically this is a temporary condition. Please contact the web site owner for further assistance.

This happen when i try to import XML :(

Hello! Thank you for your message.

It means your server don’t have enough resources to import media files, you can send me admin access to your wordpress to my support email, I will make few test projects.

love this theme. However, after installing the theme, a message appears and it does not work. How should we solve it? “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ’:’ in /home/hosting_users/doyerichost/www/wp-content/themes/manggis/functions.php on line 519”

Hello! Please check your email for answer

Thank you very much :)

Very nice theme! Good luck with sales! ;)

Thank you so much :)

Hey loving the temp! whats the name of the font used in the logo text?

Hello! Thank you.

very nice work :) wish you all the best for your sales !

Thank you very much :)

Good job ! Congratulations :)

Thanks :)

Amazing Work, Good Luck With Sale :)

Oh, thank you so much :)

Love this theme! I’ve been looking for an elegant, minimalistic, clean way to showcase my films for a long time, and this looks perfect. Quick question though, will this theme work with YouTube? The demo uses Vimeo links that popup when you click each thumbnail. Is it compatible with YouTube links though?

Yes, right, it available now.

Not very big difference in in some pages of this both themes, but very big in options and functions, different framework… Manggis theme is more easy to use now with lot of improvements, many templates, also I add Woocommerce shop support

Fantastic! So the Manggis theme is the advised theme for someone who’s not overly familiar with Wordpress? I’m relatively technically minded, so I’m sure I can pick up the basics of WP. But if there’s a slightly easier option to opt for, then that’ll be the one for me :)

Yes, right. I try to make all may themes easy to setup and use, I open to suggest new features and options from buyers. Anyway you will get demo content and fast response support.

nice theme gud luck :)

Thank you ;)
