Clean and very nice theme. Good luck :)

Thanks Vicky. =)

Very well designed. All the best!

Thanks. =)

Hello I just purchased the theme and tried to install it but an error is showing up.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in ….wp-content/themes/Metrolium/backend/custom-post-types/custom-post-types.php on line 147

Can’t activate the theme.

Hi vrodriguez,

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble. There could be a number of reasons that you’re seeing that error, including your hosting environment – php version for example.

If you could please register on our support forum and we can continue discussion there so that we can get this resolved for you.

And thanks for your purchase, it’s much appreciated. =)

Thank you for your reply. I just registered but I can’t find a place to ask a question or submit my problem.

Hi vrodriguez,

If you login with your new account and go to you should see a form to post your question.

Stunning work! Good luck :)

Thanks louiejie. =)

This is the theme I have been waiting for. Thank you!

Good to hear. I hope you enjoy it.

This is the theme I have been waiting for. Thank you!

Very nice theme. i have booked marked it for a project. when I get confirmation I will purchase. Great work packed with features, sure to sell a shed load

Thanks Hoey. Believe it or not, there’s more than meets the eye too, possibilities are literally endless with the way that pages are built using shortcodes. Going to try and expand on the demo some more to show more examples as I still don’t think it’s showing just how powerful the theme is.

Good luck with your project. =)

Lovely. One thing though. I’m seeing double page scrollbars in Chrome.

Thanks dougie1960.

Strange that you’re seeing double page scrollbars. I’m using Chrome myself and I’m not seeing that? I’m using Chrome v27.0.1453.116 on Mac OSX 10.8.2. What are you using?

Anyone else seeing double page scrollbars?

All is good now. wonderful theme!

Thanks dougie. =)

I am also seeing double page scrolls in Chrome. I am using Version 27.0.1453.116 m in Windows 7.

I also have an error at the top when viewed in Internet Explorer. I was checking in IE9.

Here is a screenshot of what I see in Chrome

Here is a screenshot of what I see in IE9

Hope this helps.

torvadesigns, you’re a star! Thanks for the screenshots and browser/os info. I’m not sure how these were missed because both we and the envato reviewer checked the theme over in various browsers and on various OSs.

Anyway, I’m on to fixing it now, thanks again, really appreciate you taking the time to post this. =)

These issues are now fixed. Thanks once again!

Glad I could help! It’s a great theme. Keep up the great work.

Is it possible to keep the top menu in view while scrolling down? Like a sticky header.

It’s not right now but I’m happy to add that. It’s something I’d been thinking about myself as I too quite like them. =)

If you purchase, be sure to register on our support forum and post it in ‘Feature Requests’.

Particularly nice if it would be combined with a one-page layout where you would scroll down by clicking on one of the menu items. BTW complements on the magnificent template!

The one page thing would be a bit trickier simply because of the way it’s currently developed although nothing is impossible obviously, maybe one for the future.

Thanks for the compliment and feedback though. =)

Congratulation for the great theme! I purchased it this morning and plan to built my homepage with it…

3 questions I have: - I also see that double vertical scrollbar on my chrome under osx.. should I download the theme again with the fix? - I cant find the shortcode reference guide that is mentioned in manual, at bottom part of chapter 6. - maybe that is the reason why I cant order any background image to the alternative band… please advice.

Thanks in advance!

Hi alphabase,

If you could please register on our support forum and I’ll be glad to help you out.

And thanks for your purchase! =)

Just added a new homepage example, built purely using shortcodes included in Metrolium. This is a classic homepage example:

New examples on the online demo:

Header Styles

Title Bar Styles

Also improved example homepage:

Hi, I love your Theme, its beautiful. But I found a bug in the Blog part. Something with the Breadcrumbs is not correct. For Example: I have a Blog and a Post called Adventures. The Post Adventures has the Category Travel. Actually the Breadcrumbs should now show: Home -> Blog -> Adventures But it shows Home -> Travel -> Adventures. Can you fix that? Would be nice.

Thx and good work!!!! The Design is simply and awesome <3


If you could please register at our support forums and post a thread about this along with the URL of your blog so that we can see it, we’ll take a look for you.

And thanks for your comments and purchase! =)

Hi I had problems installing, I’m guessing because of the size so I uploaded the zip file, then extracted in from my control panel. It showed up okay in wordpress, except when I went to activate it and this is the error I got: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /public_html/wp-content/themes/Metrolium/backend/custom-post-types/custom-post-types.php on line 147.

I also tried signing up on the forum and haven’t received the password yet. Hope you can help. thanks

Hi roset,

Firstly, thank you very much for purchasing our theme, we really appreciate it.

As for your issue, is it caused by your PHP version. PHP versions below 5.3 don’t support anonymous functions which is what is used on that line and a number of others in that file for that matter.

There’s a link on StackOverflow that explains this in more detail:

The best thing to do is to contact your hosting provider and ask for them to upgrade the PHP version, not just because of this theme but also because newer versions are more secure.

We will however be releasing a patch soon with backwards compatibility but even so, I’d still recommend you upgrade.

I hope that this helps. If you do have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to get back in touch.

P.S. If your password doesn’t come through soon, check your spam/junk folders and failing that, use ‘Forgot Password’.

Hi EugedLab!!

Great looks ace – loved the look of it straight away!

However, I think I’m having some trouble as I don’t have all of the options in theme options. I only have Global, Sidebars and Portfolio.

In your documentation you list:

Branding & Logo — Upload your own logo and change some simple colour options
   Portfolio — Pick which layouts are used for the portfolio
   Banner — Choose which banner template is used
   Footer — Pick which footer template is used
   Sidebars — Add your own custom sidebars
So I'm missing a few.

Also your link for the shortcode referencing seems to be broken. Please can you provide me with the shortcode guide?

Much appreciated!



Strange. You’re the second person to say that. You probably already have but just to double check; have you checked your spam/junk folders? Failing that, could you please try using ‘Forgot Password’?

Nothing in junk and just sent through the forgotten password link too.

I’ve sent you an email with a new password. We’ll clearly have to do some tests to try and find out why some users are not receiving the emails. Apologies for the inconvenience. Speak to you on the forum. =)


Great theme! Really struggling to recreate the site as per the demo. There is no xml file import I see to get it looking like the demo. Any chance you could send me a db dump and .xml file import and then I can have it like the demo?

Hi olly,

We didn’t create an XML file because we provide all the example pages we’ve created using shortcodes in the documentation:

However, we will update this and provide this in the next version.

If there’s anything else you need, please register on our support forums and we’ll gladly help you out.

In the meantime, thanks for your purchase, feedback and patience. =)

Hi, that link is different to the index.html help file that comes with the download, which didn’t include any of the home page shortcodes. Looking at the help file it was v1.0 and the new link is v1.0.2. There are still some issues here and there for me, so I will ping you an email.

Hi olly,

Yes, I noticed that we forgot to include homepage examples (sorry about that) so updated the online documentation. Your local documentation will be updated in the next update that we release via ThemeForest. In the meantime, feel free to ask away on our support forum. =)

I also have the same issue as HarrietBodkin in respect of the fact that I only have Global, Sidebars and Portfolio in Theme Options. There is also no documentation on setting up the HOME page and with the shortcodes that you have used etc so the import file would be helpful. I have tried to register on your forum also and I haven’t received an email with a username/password.

Hi olly,

I see that you’ve now registered on the forum, speak to you there! =)

Hi. How can I make the logo bigger? It seems like it is restricted to 100px height. Thank you. Christian

Hi Christian,

If you go to ‘Appearance > Theme Options’ and you’ll see on the first tab a text area for custom css. In there, insert (without the backticks `):

`#banner .logo img { height: Xpx; max-height: Xpx; }`

Obviously replace ‘X’ for the height.

Thanks for your purchase! If you have any other issues, head over to our support forum and we’ll be happy to help you out. =)

your theme is looking awesome! quick question though, when are you thinking of adding the functionality to keep the menu bar in screen always? this is a bit of a requirement for the project i am working on at the moment and i would love to use this theme! furthermore, will you also add the progressbar and other infographic elements?

Hi ecb21,

We can add the sticky nav this week. As for infographic elements and progress bars, we hadn’t planned on adding any of those to this theme as such but there’s no reason why we can’t add some. I’d suggest putting that in the Metrolium feature request forum once you’ve purchased but I can’t put a time frame on that one right now.

Let me know if you have any more questions. =)

purchased the theme right after I posted my questions. I see that I need a login to post something in the support forum, could you provide me that or tell me where to find it please?

Thanks for your purchase, much appreciated! =)
