Hi Luke, We’re having trouble with the internal links on our site. Clicking on internal links either goes blurry images or vertical letters. Is there something we should be doing on the draft page to post internal links? We haven’t noticed any problems with this in the past. This only happens with the mobile google browser but not safari. Desktop is fine. Thanks so much, Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Seems like this issue is related to WebP images generation. You can go to Settings > WebP Express, scroll down to Conversion settings and select the Jpeg conversion to Loseless and Loseless/Lossy quality to 100%.

This should solve the issue.

Hi there, I have a series of errors that have appeared on my website since updating to php 8.0, so I have reverted back to 7.4 for now. Looks like this:

Warning: Trying to access array offset on value of type bool in /customers/5/3/e/talatgokdemir.com/httpd.www/wp-content/themes/norway/view-post.php on line 166

Is this something I can fix from my side? Help would be appreciated :)

Hi silenzio01,

You can download the new version of Norway theme and install it, the issue seems to be related to older version.

Thanks!! Is it possible to remove ‘by Author name on Date’ on posts? If so, how?


Is this payment for norway theme single payement or is this yearly fee? will the update include also PHP versions in future?

Thank you

Matjaz from Slovenia

Hi Matjaz,

Thank you for your question.

This payment is a one-time payment for the theme with access to ALL future updates for free and one year support in ThemeForest comments section and/or by email.

HI, How do I get the featured image for a page to appear above the heading and also can I get it to show in full length just as the logo picture does (hence also above the sidebar)

And also how do I link the picture?

Hi Cathinkaingman,

When adding a new post or page in the right side there’s a section named “Featured Image” you can select previously uploaded one or upload a new one there.

- Luke

Hi Luke Yes I know that much but how do I get the feature picture to appear above the headline instead of below?

Hi, I am having trouble setting up the home page. How can I make it the same as the demo? The “Features Categories” section and the three posts that should be at the top seem to be missing. Do I have to create a new page or is there an option to bring up these two missing fields?

Hi naiara83,

To add featured posts section: Go to Appearance > Customize > Content > Top Featured Category select the existing category you want to be featured. You can add new category in Posts > Categories. Make sure you have featured images set in posts for best experience.

To add featured categories: Go to Appearance > Customize > Header > Featured Categories select the categories you want to feature (Multiple values can be selected using cmd/ctrl click. Deselect using cmd/ctrl). You can edit each category and add an image to it in Posts > Categories.

Let me know if it helps.

- Luke

Great Theme. Was wondering, if I’m the only one with broken focus points on cover images. Cheers, Alex

Hi Listencareful,

Can you please send me a screenshot at support@major-themes.com Would be nice to know also the browser you’re using so I can fix this.

- Luke

Hey is the theme compatible with WordPress 6?


Hey AuWeH,

Just tried upgrading it and all seems working fine!

- Luke

I’ve set this up with Header One, but I’d like to remove the row above the logo/menu (i.e. the bit with the social icons and search) as I don’t need it. How can I do this please? I’d also like to change the background colour of the header, again how can I achieve this? Are you able to provide answers and/or CSS to the above please.

Hi digitalknave,


In Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS copy-paste the code below:

header.header-main .social-wrap,
header.header-main .search-trigger-wrap,
header.header-main .lead {
    display: none !important;

header.header-main .header-essentials {
    padding-top: 0px !important;
    border-bottom: 0;

header.header-main:before {
    height: 105px !important;
    background: #fea !important;

You can change the color by changing background: #fea hex value.

Let me know if this helps :)

Is there any way to specify which articles are shown as Related Posts? We have an older post showing up which we don’t want to feature. I tried removing it from the Category, and also switching it back to a Draft rather than Published, but in both cases it still showed up as a Related Post elsewhere.

Thanks as always!

Hi sarahjaneirvine,

Can you send me a message at support@major-themes.com with the link to the page that is showing the “Related Posts”.

Hi just install your theme with a child theme, when I put a css in my style.css file in the child theme it does not owerite the parent style, I need to put an !imprtant in my css, I cannot do all my css with !importantin css, can you tell me what is wrong ? my child theme is activated.


thanks for tour answer now I want to modify the file social.php so I create a folder main in my child theme put my modified file social.php on it but the theme do not overwerite the main social.php, can you help me please? thanks

That’s actually a great question! :)

Add the code below to functions.php file of child theme:
// Removing the loading of helper scripts from parent theme

function norway8_remove_functions_child() {
    remove_action('after_setup_theme', 'norway8_load_scripts', 1);
add_action('after_setup_theme', 'norway8_remove_functions_child', 0);

// Adding the loader of helper scripts to child theme

function norway8_load_scripts_child() {
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/init.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/api.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/articles.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/blocks.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/customizer.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/styles.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/tgm.php');
    require_once(get_template_directory() . '/main/theme.php');

    // Path to replaced social.php file, can be in any directory :)

    require_once(get_stylesheet_directory() . '/social.php');

add_action('after_setup_theme', 'norway8_load_scripts_child', 2);

And you can put social.php file directly in the child theme directory without creating additional folders.

Hope this helps!

Perfect! thanks


We’re enjoying this theme a lot!! But we’re having an issue lately.

The main logo on the header bar is not appearing in any circumstance (appears only an X). It is uploaded in the dashboard, and we changed it to another image to see if it’s working but still not showing I’m afraid. We cleared cache and tried with a private tab but it doesn’t work.

What can be the problem with this? Thanks a lot!!

Hello Sigundr,

Please send me link to your website at lukestateson@gmail.com

I am sure I will be able to find the issue and fix it :)

- Luke

Hi Luke, thanks for your swift answer! We believe that it was an issue with SSL. We installed Real & Simple SSL and now seems to work! Thanks again!

Great, I’m glad that everything is working :)

Please let me know if you have more questions!

Hello, I am wondering what the changes are to the theme for this latest update, please?

Hi samanthab333,

There has been an update to admin panel Gutenberg post editor styles.

- Luke

Hello, I’d like to change our homepage to a fixed image like this: https://lionsinthepiazza.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3805&action=edit Then underneath, the usual columns of pictures for posts. A few problems: 1) It says that I need to create two new pages, one for the homepage and one for the posts. I tried setting the “homepage” to the above image, and leaving the other option blank—but wound up with the latest posts on top and the homepage image underneath. The other posts disappeared. 2) On the homepage image, the font color goes from the orange custom theme color to black. Also it doesn’t resize for mobile viewing (maybe that’s not possible?) Please let me know if I can clarify anything, and thank you!!

Hi sarahjaneirvine,

Please contact me at support@major-themes.com and I will help you with setting up the homepage.

Hi, I would like to import the demo but I think I don’t have all the data. I don’t find the xml file “Demo Data”. Would you please help me ? Thank you.

Hi jeanpaulpopulu,

The demo data should be in the full theme archive, in case you don’t have this archive you can download it here: https://major-themes.com/files/norway8/demo-data.zip

Just unzip it and use posts.xml and pages.xml files or everything.xml in case you want to import everything including WooCommerce store demo data.

Please let me know if this helps and in case you’ll need help with, for example widgets setup or other questions please let me know at support@major-themes.com

Hey there,

I’m having problems replicating the sidebar with the author & recent posts just like on the preview page: https://preview.themeforest.net/item/norway-responsive-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/12671393?_ga=2.205494992.1552483743.1641072294-296640680.1605260275

I think a plugin called “Bekento Tools” is needed but I do not have it and I can’t find anywhere to download it.


Hi edonlutaa,

If you don’t have MajorThemes Tools with Profile and Thumbnail Recent Posts widgets you can install this plugin in Appearance > Install Plugins.

You can contact me at support@major-themes.com and i will help you with the plugin installation and widgets setup.

- Luke


First of all i want to thank you for this wonderful theme. I haven’t seen such a smart and intuitive as well as well documented premium theme in a long time.

The following points I noticed that I need help with:

1. “Class Person” takes the author image from Gravatar and not from the user settings from the “Custom Avatar” link like the “Profile widget”. I have disabled Gravatar in the settings under discussion for privacy reasons. I would like to see only the “Custom Avatar” used on post pages as well as the overview page of all posts. —> As a work around I have solved the problem with the plugin “Simple Local Avatars”. This is the only way I have to set the author avatar twice.

2. I have installed the “MajorThemes Tools 4”, unfortunately the widgets “Archives” and “Recent Posts” are not displayed. I only see the “Profile” and “Thumbnail Category Posts” widgets. “Archives” and “Recent posts” widgets are not displayed in the theme design. I wish that I can use these two widgets exactly like in the preview of the theme in the sidebar as well as in the footer.

btw: I have made a German translation. Maybe this is useful for other of your clients?

My website is in maintenance mode. Please give me a sign if you need to see this or need access to the backend.

Glad to hear from you and wish a happy new year!

Thanks in advance and best regards


Hi Alex,

Many thanks, I always create themes so i can use them myself on my personal blog :)

1. If you installed MajorThemes Tools 4 you should have custom avatars available in Users > All Users > (Hover on User and click “Edit”) > Account Management section > Custom Avatar. This uploaded avatar will be used in Profile Widget. In next theme version (9) this option will be global across theme and require no additional plugins. You can send me a message at support@major-themes.com if you want this feature before the v9 update.

2. “Thumbnail Category Posts” is the Widget used both for “Recent Posts” (with thumbnails) and “Our locations” (with markers). “Archives” and “Recent Posts” without thumbnail are built-in into Wordpress widgets, you can find them in widget search. You can contact me so i can help you with every widget setup.

> I have made a German translation. Maybe this is useful for other of your clients?

Absolutely! I can include it in the next theme version if you allow it for me to use.

Happy New Year to you too!

Please contact me at support@major-themes.com so i can help you with widgets and custom avatars option (at no extra charge, free for you).

Hi, I am very happy with the theme but I have a little problem with my website www.fanaticar.de . Namely words are cut off left and right on iPhone and iPad. That means it tries to be responsive but doesn’t quite make it. Is there any tip how I can quickly correct this?

Hello marioroman_pictures,

You can copy-paste this code in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:

@media (max-width: 1000px) {
    .slideshow-featured-top, .top_featured_layout-slideshow .featured-top {
        height: auto !important;
    .top_featured_layout-slideshow .featured-top .grid-item {
        display: none;
        position: relative !important;
    .top_featured_layout-slideshow .featured-top .grid-item.current {
        display: block;
    .content-singular {
        display: block !important;

This should fix the issues on iPhone/iPad.

Hello, Still enjoying the beautiful theme! One issue has come up: at the very bottom of any post, it says “continue reading” and has a few other posts. How to hide the read time and number of views from those posts? Here is a sample: https://lionsinthepiazza.com/building-back-baroque-in-ragusa-sicily/


Hi Luke, thanks for the reply—I’m not getting any results, though.

I’ve inspected the added styles to your website.

It seems like there’s a typo starting after the line with @media

Fixed styles below, you can replace them:
@media (max-width: 823px) {
    figcaption { position: static !important; opacity: 1 !important; transform: none !important; display: block !important; }

.content-singular { font-size: 20px; color: #000; }

.featured-bottom .post-meta-min {
    display: none !important;

Please let me know if this helps. Or contact me at support@major-themes.com

Hurray! Thanks for checking and catching the typo. Wonderful to have your help!

sorry this has been answered!!

Awesome :)


I just uploaded the zip file of the theme and got this error message:

Unpacking the package… Installing the theme… The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme installation failed.

Hi mcgeownpaula,

The file you downloaded contains all files (documentation, demo data, child theme, etc.) You can unzip this package or download theme separately.

Hope this helps :)
