Hi is there a way to remove the author bio and the tags from below every post?

Hello, alattehope!

Yes, it’s possible! Go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and copy-paste the code below:

body.page .content article .post-author-bio, body.single .content article .post-author-bio { display: none; }

body.page .content article .post-tags, body.single .content article .post-tags { display: none; }

First one will remove author bio below the post, second one – tags.

i believe i have purchased the wrong theme for me… is there a money back guarantee? Thank you

talking about the “top featured layout” – trio

Yes, absolutely.

To add the top featured edit the post and mark the “Top Featured” checkbox.

Also you can contact me at support@bekento.space with access to your website and i will make it look like the website you mentioned with the theme demo data.


Hey, I would love to write a review. you have been so helpful along the way, so where can I do that. thank you so much. great support

Hey, ive an inssue with my dropdown menu, ive set the max width of each item to allow longer text (was 200px before) – also the menu is not visible on smartphones since I first bought this theme. is there a way you can fix that for me? i would even pay you for that. cheers

Hey, Dominik!

I’m really sorry for this issue with menu, I will try to fix this ASAP.

Please contact me at support@bekento.space but i would like to have more details on this, screenshot would be great.


Hi! I’m trying to create a “Specifications”-box where our writers can put information on the product that they are testing or the event that they have been to. If you look here: http://www.lacar.com/2018-buick-enclave-avenir/ and scroll down to the Specifications-box on the left side you’ll see what I mean. This box is made using the snippet and then just adding the text. However, it would be great if the Specifications-box had a border around it and the text was not bold. Is there a way where I can easily make a new code-snippet that our writers can add to their postings when they want something like this? (I don’t want to change the attributes, we like those for other parts of the article as you can see a little higher up in the quoted article). Many thanks! J-F

Hello, J-F!

You can style it in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and copy-paste this example code there:

.pull-left-alt, .pull-right-alt {
    width: 50%;
    line-height: 120%;
    padding: 30px;
    background: #f7f7f7; /* background color */
    font-size: 20px; /* font size in pixels */
    border: 1px solid #ccc; /* border style */

.pull-right-alt {
    float: right;
    margin: 0 0 25px 30px;
    text-align: right;
.pull-left-alt {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 30px 25px 0;
    text-align: left;

Don’t forget to click “Publish”. You can modify it for your needs. And then use in post like this:

<span class="pull-right-alt">This pull quote will be on the right side of the post.</span>

I hope this helps :)


Max, that was awesome! Many thanks! /J-F

You’re selcome, J-F!

Good Afternoon,

My name is Brandon. I am truly fascinated with your WordPress theme as I am 99.9% convinced that this one is the one for me. However, there are a few critical questions that I must have answered before the deal is sealed.

Question 1 (with a little background info): I want to create a blog that is user dominate where most of the posts that accumulate on the blog are from the users themselves rather than me. Does your theme allow automatic posting of user submitted posts (images/video/written content) to the main areas of the site as if it were a post created by a admin? In essence, will users be able to make posts for the blog and those posts be posted in the main content areas of the blog (e.g., “Latest Posts”; “Popular Post” <—is there an algorithm that determines how a post becomes popular? e.i. the post with the most comments or something to that effect; posts that represent a specific category in the blog)?

Question 2: Will users be able to comment on other user’s posts? I know they will be able to post on mine, however will users be able to interact with each other as they post different content? (I understand the answer to question 2 is predicated on the answer to question 1)

Question 3 (Two part question): Will users have some type of log in capability or be able to keep track of their posts and comments? In other words, will they have an efficient way to display only their activity within the blog (simply to keep track of the comments to their posts on the blog)?

Forgive me for all the long-winded questions, and thank you very much for your help!



Hello, Brandon!

1. The best way to do this is by installing BuddyPress plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress/

Unfortunately, Norway theme was not tested with it, and i can’t recommend you using it because it probably won’t have proper styling.

Norway is a nice theme for personal blog or a magazine. If you want to create more social blog without any plugins, but with user allowed to post, you should do an additional modifications (extra coding) like login form widget and some sort of moderation of registered users and their content, however most of this could be done by WordPress itself.

2. Yes, WordPress allows you to comment on any post from any user, you can also set up comment pre-moderation or disable it.

3. There is a possibility for registered users to access the WordPress admin panel without administrative capabilities if they register as a contributor or an author. You can read more info about WordPress bulit-in roles here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities


Hi, i was wondering were I can change the text for the comment section. For instance: I want to change “leave a reply” in to dutch. I can’t seem to find were I can’t edit this. Same question for the text “you might also like”.

Regards, Elise.

Hello, Elise!

You can translate everything in theme using plugin Loco Translate.

Here is a nice guide on how to use it: https://major-themes.com/norway.html#1.3

You can also contact me at support@bekento.space with access to WordPress admin panel and I will install this plugin and create a new translation template if you want :)


Hi Max, how can i change the size of the boxed layout? And it is poosible to integrate the slider and the footer in the boxed layout as well? thanks jj

Hey, JJ!

It’s actually hard-coded in many places including responsiveness, so boxed layout width can’t be changed.


Hi there,

I’m completely new to this and need extensive support. The tutorial video links are not working. When I upload my logo, it’s taking up the whole page. Shouldn’t it show next to the site name on the header?

Please help.

I can’t see my existing content. Also when I try to write a blog, it fails. Please help www.mongolialive.org

Hello, Mongolialive!

Can you send me access to WordPress admin panel at support@bekento.space

I will help you on this!


Hi. We really liked the Norway theme and the clean design and I only have one question. Is there a way to show a few of the posts and then have a spot where we can show ads. and then keep going on with the posts on the front page?

Hey, Kenorway!

There are plugins for managing ads and the second way by adding extra code to theme. You can contact me at support@bekento.space and I will help you with this.


Thanks, Max. I sent you an email.

Hi, is there a way to hide Featured Posts from the main listing if they are already showing in the Trio setup of Featured Posts at the top of the homepage? Looks funny to have them there twice. Thanks.

Hello, assadrizvi!

Yes it’s possible, just copy-paste this into functions.php file:

add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'norway6_remove_posts_from_home_page' );
function norway6_remove_posts_from_home_page( $query ) {
    if( $query->is_main_query() && $query->is_home() ) {
        $query->set( 'meta_query', array(
            'relation' => 'OR',
                'key'     => 'norway6_top_featured_post_field',
                'compare' => 'NOT EXISTS',
                'value'   => 'prior to WP 3.9 a value was needed due to bug #23268'
                'key'     => 'norway6_top_featured_post_field',
                'compare' => '!=',
                'value'   => '1'
        ) );


Perfect! Thanks!
