Hello, Awesome theme you have but i have a small question. I am currently using a food theme, and it has a custom post type called ‘recipe’ instead of posts. Now if i install this theme i want the food recipes to show on the home page and all the pages and all. The ones in the post type called ‘posts’ are now my articles, can this be done? Or can you help me change this theme to fit in my current custom post type and work nicely?

No, post type can work with your desktop template but now with our mobile template. You need to add it our template manually with code.

We are working with this template, however the image tile slider is not working even with the shortcode provided in the documentation. Have you had any issues with it before. I can provide you a link if it would be easier for you to debug that way.

Great Theme! NM360


Thank you for purchase. We have no issue like that before. Did you watched help videos about adding image tile? If you can’t solve the problem. Please send me your admin username and pass from our support forum. I can check it for you.

Hi, on the theme options page can you tell me how to remove “Metro Mobile WP v1.0” from the footer on the left side?

You can delete from admin > options > options.php just find with a finder and delete.

Hi, We’re considering buying this theme but have several questions: 1. Can the images within the slider be clickable? On your demo it doesn’t look like they can and this is an important factor for us. 2. Can the main navigation icons (home and back) be changed? 3. Is there a way that all the pages have the same layout as the home page?

Thank you in advance!

Hi, Thank you for interest; 1-) You can give only one link per slider. 2-) No it is built in icons can not changed. 3-) Need to customize it yourself. Regards

Ok, a follow up question: can we put a nextgen gallery instead of the slider on the home page? Thank you!

You can but you will have problem with other tiles align. So need to use slider tile.

Love the theme, but I have a question:

When you click a category link to view all posts in that category, the header for the page shows up as the title of the latest post.


The above link is for a category called “Audio Series” but when you visit that link you’ll see the page header is the same as the latest post title.

How can I get the category title to show up at the top of the category’s page?

Please send this to us with a ticket: Update request. We will happ to add this. Forum system:http://webbu.ticksy.com

is this full WordPress theme or WP plug in that i use with my theme to work in mobile and tablet because i need the second one i actually have theme and ilove to make metro theme for only mobile and tablet

yes you can use like other wp templates.

And you can use our template for just mobile and tablet. We have integration guide for that.

Hi, Is there a way to add a search field somewhere (even within a page) ?

You can use plugin for that. We have not area for search.


Our support forum is changed. New address: http://support.webbudesign.com

When I use the light theme I have a white background. On fontawesome, there are directions for styling the icons to have a white background they way they look on there, but I don’t think that’s possible with MobileMetro. Is there a link you can point me to show how to get white background / black icon? Alternatively, how do I get transparency to work for PNG files? I still get a grey background on those.


We not have a white backgrounded tile bg color option. And if you want to use black icons you can use Image Icon feature for this. Our predefined colors working good with white fontawesome icons so we didn’t put an option for this.

By the way I can add this feature in our template. If you want to use black icons with fonrtawesome. Please send us an update request from our support forum: http://support.webbudesign.com


Hi, I just realized it may be simpler to screenshot the images from the Fontawesome site and use them as image tiles instead of icon tiles.The theme you’ve created is amazing as is!

You can use icon tiles as well. And thanks for your great words.

Can we have an image as one of the tiles?

Yes you can

quick question the icons for the tiles dont show up on android

Some browsers are not support font icons. So you can use image icons as we told in help documentation.

awesome thank you also in the back end under appearance i have fatal errors, should i uninstall and reinstall to get those options running

No not need to install can you send me your page address and wp admin info for check . You can send from my profile page.

Unless you corrected this recently, the dimensions for t3x-t2x-b are wrong and come out as two horizontal 3 vertical (unlike what your guide says. Just a heads up, keep up the good work:) 5 stars!

Yes we learned that is wrong and fixed it immediately. Thanks for great words :)

Hey hi :) no doubt 5* theme.

I just cant wait to buy this. I ll be more than happy to purchase this tomorrow itself if you do minor modification. There is larger tile (1st tile (image) on left side) I want this area to work as a iframe.

Desktop View – clicking on a tile page should open in iframe. Mobile View – Only Tiles Visible. clicking on tile make that iframe visible that cover whole screen. thats it

Optional—> One last if we have more then 2 pages for ABOUT US then pagination in header to go to next page ( like 1 of 4 pages) with close button

Is it possible or can u do this for me..?


Thanks for great words. Unfortunately we not make customization on template. This is not covered with our support. But you can customize it yourself.


I get this error:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-3367615-metro.zip Unpacking the package… Installing the theme… The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.

Hi thank you for purchase our template, Information about this is not error ;

No it’s not broken, but this is a common error. First thing is to actually unzip the download you received from your purchase. Inside the download we provide a wealth of information and files including Photoshop files, help documentation, text files, XML files, plugins and the theme. By uploading the entire file you received WordPress cannot find the theme inside everything and issues the “Missing stylesheet’ error. Simply unzip, find the help file and start from there as we describe everything from within that Help Documentation folder for you.

Sorry, I see now that I had to unzip the downloaded package first.

:) Ok. Thanks.

Hey guys, this looks great. I already have a Wordpress website built and would like to make a mobile version of it as well. Can I still have my existing “desktop” Wordpress site and have this “mobile site” work with it? If so, is it fairly easy to integrate? Thanks.

Hi, Thanks.

You can watch this video for more information: http://www.screenr.com/AK77


http://zellusmarketing.com/dev/1/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Capture.png The big video box is the second tile and in certain resolutions it does the above picture. How can I get the boxes to wrap behind it, rather than leaving this empty space(which I circled red)?

The Metro’s tiles is not fluid. So you have to create your tiles on this rule. Otherwise you can see empty areas like that.


Great job dev. www.splashmobile.co.nz For those who want to see what I am doing with it. We design apps and websites, from New Zealand. So question; how do i change/add orange to the button color selection?


I don’t understand again. Are you try to tell me orange color or orange photo in demo preview?

don’t worry about the demo. i mean the buttons. when i add a button to a page, using the shortcode. i want to add an orange button but the color orange is NOT in the available choices. how do i add the color orange to this selection?? i want an orange button. :)

Now I checked our typography again and i see an orange button. Use yellow for get orange button. :) I write wrong color name.

I followed the instructions for the full site link, but when I click full site it takes me to the full site BUT if I click on another page from the full site it takes me back to the mobile site. Once the user goes to the full site I don’t want it to switch back to mobile.

Is that the exact code I can use in the demo file provided with the download? If you could email me that at my username @gmail that would be awesome and much appreciated.

yes copy this code and use it just need to insert redirection code into the correct place. Like this;(This is for just redirect)
if(is_front_page() || is_home()){
require_once 'Mobile_Detect.php';
    $detect = new Mobile_Detect;
    $deviceType = ($detect->isMobile() ? ($detect->isTablet() ? 'tablet' : 'phone') : 'computer');
    if ($deviceType == "phone"){header('Location: http://yousite.com/mobile/');} 
    if ($deviceType == "tablet"){header('Location: http://yousite.com/mobile/');}
And for put turn back to desktop;
if(is_front_page() || is_home()){
require_once 'Mobile_Detect.php';
    // Link for this system : http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?desktop=1
    if($_GET["desktop"] != 1){
        $detect = new Mobile_Detect;
        $deviceType = ($detect->isMobile() ? ($detect->isTablet() ? 'tablet' : 'phone') : 'computer');
        if ($deviceType == "phone"){header('Location: http://yousite.com/mobile/');} 
        if ($deviceType == "tablet"){header('Location: http://yousite.com/mobile/');}
