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!

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

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 :)

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!

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

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”.

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 :)
