How can i hide the featured images on the post pages?

In the admin go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and paste the following code:

.single-thumb {
    display: none;



Love the theme. A couple questions about it.

1. Do you have a layout of the mysql formatting documented? I am looking for ways to allow other people to submit post, playlist and such and dont see a page for this, or what type of syntax I would need to use.

2. Are there guides on how to create other pages? Meaning if I setup users and make permissions, I would want to make a users page where they can create and add spotify playlist and such themselves.

Hi there,

1. For user submitted posts on the front end you can try this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-submitted-posts/

2. Do you mean make other pages in the admin?.

1. Thats not exactly what I am looking for. Do you have a layout and breakdown of the mysql tablem, and what we need to put to lets say make a post? Example: you would send it to the database name of “posts” and then the first field: name, second field: email….etc etc etc

2. Can I make my own mysql databases and use those for post/playlist/videos?

3. I am looking to expand on whats in the template. Can I make a user profile page? Could I make a “Post” creation page? or even an “edit” or a playlist submission page? And even a user signup page?

1. Use phpMyAdmin to look at the database and tables. Use the $wpdb class to interact with the database in your code.

2. I don’t believe you have to create a separate database for that, but if you believe you do. The $wpdb class can help you interact with that database to, for more info on the class: https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/classes/wpdb/

3. The plugin I referenced above can help with post submissions if you don’t want your users to use the WordPress admin. Or you can write your own code to create these custom pages using the page templates provided with the theme for layout guidance.

Hello, very beautiful theme. Congratulations! Does it work with Elementor?

Hi there,

The theme has a full width page template you can use with Elementor.

Thank you.

Is there a way of disabling the creation date?

Hi there,

Please send me an email here https://themeforest.net/user/promola and I will respond with the needed code snippet and instructions.

Thank you.


Nice looking theme! Is there a “Dark mode” or any plans to make this a feature?


Hey Winners!

Yes a dark mode feature is coming soon.


Ok, awesome..I’m looking forward to it!

Hey. I can’t use this theme. I must get a refund. This was a mistake. Please process a refund. The theme is not working properly and I cannot make time to correct the issue. This is not what I paid for and I cannot afford to use the client’s budget on this tool that is not working properly.

Hi there,

What is it about the theme that is not working properly?. Please let me know so I can quickly fix it.

Thank you.

Good day. I’d like to buy your theme. But first, I’d like to find out if I can allow users to pay for membership in order to host their own sound on my site (like they do on soundcloud, spotify, etc.). Please advise.

Hi. I can add my own radio stations (shoutcast). Thanks.

Good day,

At the moment the theme does not support Shoutcast radio stations.

Thank you.

Hi can you tell me where the documents are? I can’t find the demo importer or even how to create a podcast (audio player) Regards Warren

-The player currently does not have a download button, you can add a download button inside the post itself.
-What text would you like to add to the homepage?

I need to add a legal bit of text to the top of the homepage

Why not create a legal page and add the link to the header menu?

Hi, does your theme provide stats – eg. times downloaded or listened to?

Hi there,

If you use services like Spotify, YouTube etc. you can get your stats there. But for locally hosted files you will have to use a plugin to get stats, I can recommend some great plugins that will work with the theme.

Thank you.


I have just purchased the MaxCast theme and I have three issues:

1) First, I have uploaded the Demo XML, but the result I have doesn’t looks like the demo. Here’s how my site looks like after uploading “Demo XML” as per your instruction: https://marketingcrow.com/ Can you tell me how to install the demo?

2) It is impossible to update a post (set by the demo), as I am asked to put an URL in the field “Episode number” after clicking on “update”.

3) Finally, how can I remove the podcast player from a post. I do not want the player in every post.

Thank you.

Thank you, I would appreciate a rating.

It’s all done.

Thank you.

Hello Dav.

Please I cannot see the option to insert the license key on the theme, and also no option to import demo data.

Please help. Thanks

Hi there,

Please check the read me file here: https://themes.promola.co.za/themereadme/maxcast/

Demo data steps: https://themes.promola.co.za/themereadme/maxcast/#demo

Thank you.

I recently purchased the theme. I have set it up and find that on front page the audio will play. If I go to any other page the audio will not play.

I tried removing plugins. Still doesn;t work. How can I fix this?

Please advise.

Thank you.

Can you please give me a link to the page that doesn’t play audio?.

Can I use Spotify links for audio ?

Yes you can use Spotify audio and video, here’s an example https://demos.promola.co.za/maxcast/spotify-episode-embedded-with-ease-listen/

Thank you.

Great product. Very happy with it all. When you press play to hear audio or see video. Can you tell me what I need to change so that the player continues to play as the visitor clicks through OTHER pages. Currently when you come off the page you pressed play on, the player disappears. Thank you.

Hi there,

That feature is hard to implement in WordPress, but as soon as I figure it out I will add it. At the moment that’s how the theme works.

Thank you.
