Hi. I think that since the theme is being FINALLY updated, we can always go for a new look and feel now. The current one is like 6 years old style which nobody likes anymore. Thanks.

hello, I was trying to download the demo file I don’t know how

Is Periodic 4.0.2 compatible with Wordpress 5?

Hi there,

Yes, Periodic will work with the latest version of WordPress however, we have not made any updates to the theme around the Gutenberg editor.

We recommend installing and using the Classic Editor plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Is this product still supported? Last comments 2 years ago and I need a reply?

Hello! It is absolutely still supported.

Hop on over to http://designcrumbstoo.ticksy.com and open a ticket, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

And the last comment looks like it was last month, not 2 years ago ;)

Pleased to hear it.Your help file appears to be out of date with V4 Wordpress, so I look forward to your reply to my ticket.

hi. will we EVER see anything good or new or according to the latest trends and requirements, happening to this theme. or will it remain the SAME oldie style forever?

Hi there,

In the past year, we released a major update for Periodic which included refactoring and removing a lot of old code and making the theme responsive.

That being said, we are focused on making sure all of our themes are up to date and consistent with the latest WP standards and requirements. If there are any features that aren’t part of the theme currently, but that you’re interested in, please let us know so we can consider them for future enhancements for Periodic.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for reaching out!

When I add blocks, I can’t see them.

Should the front page be static page or latest posts?


It should be a static page. If you would please open a ticket at http://designcrumbstoo.ticksy.com we’ll help you over there.

?How can I set my home like the themeforest example? I need list most recent posts of each category, exactly like the example. Thanks.?

Hello! The help file included with the theme walks through setup step by step. You likely need to go through the theme options.

If you need additional help, please open a ticket at http://designcrumbstoo.ticksy.com – Thanks!

this is fantastic! Thank you for the update, looking forward to updating.

I’m at work at the moment and tried to view the change log, comes up as a page not found, has it moved? http://themes.designcrumbs.com/periodic/wp-content/themes/periodic/changelog.txt

And the updates are more detailed than that, there was a lot of code rewrites. I’ve taken these themes over from the author whom created them.

Fantastic, just had a look. Great updates, thank you! Yeah, I can imagine there was a bit rewrites. Thanks again for everything!

I still work with this theme and I still like it as it is. I don’t want to buy a new theme, this is perfect for my project, but it’s not responsive.

Is there any possibility of upgrading to a responsive version?

Thanks for continuing with the development of this theme and not leave it forgotten ;)


Yup, the new version that’s coming out soon is responsive. The theme itself is done, but as you see, these themes have changed ownership. We’re working on converting everything from the old brand to the new brand and will push out the updated items as we get them done!

Sorry for such a long delay! 4.0 is finally available. It’s responsive and has tons of tweaks and a code overhaul.

Hello there, still loving this theme over the years. I’m looking for some help tho. Weather from the team or other customers, will be much appreciated. I’m looking at getting both sliders to auto-slide. Every second. I hope that it is possible via the child theme. Thank you.

You’re very welcome!

Hello there,

I have applied the changes! Thank you so very much for this amazing support. The old team some time ago wanted me to pay for such service. However this new team, amazing. Thank you.

I have applied the following changes: -Both sliders auto slide. -Slides rotate every 3 seconds. -Pause on mouseover.

Awesome. Glad to help!

sorry to say… not using the theme anymore. looks BASIC now

Okay. Thanks for the feedback.

Promises Promises Promises …. :(

I don’t take it personally :)

My team has been working hard since we took over control of the WAP8 themes. We’re currently managing a total of 25 themes across two accounts here at ThemeForest. Keeping that many themes updated while working on new themes and handling support for all of our customers is a lot of work.

The current version of Periodic works fine, the update are simply that, updates. Not bug fixes or anything of that nature. When it comes to updating our themes, bug fixes get the highest priority.

All that said, it looks like the only new feature we added was responsiveness. Everything else was just behind the scenes work, including a move to a better options panel.

Sorry for such a long delay! 4.0 is finally available. It’s responsive and has tons of tweaks and a code overhaul.

Hi Seriously it seems that this is a dead theme now. 2013 was the last update and then only promises. And now at least me, have stopped using the theme as it doesn’t looks as good as in 2013. it feels 10 steps backward as compared to newer themes with more features and looks. thanks

We’re still here. The theme isn’t dead!

Any update on when the server switch will be complete and the updates rolled out, please?


I don’t have a date, other than to say soon (which, I know I’ve been saying for a while now). I’ve put one of my guys on doing this and made it his top priority, though he is handling it for all of our themes.

See your theme : http://awesomescreenshot.com/0823zf0l1b The alignment of logo part is very correct.

Where as once we try up upload a logo its a disaster for alignment in logo section : http://awesomescreenshot.com/04e3zf0xf8

It would have been great if you clear this issue in next update

Noted! Thanks!

hi you said loooooooong ago that a new update many new things is coming soon…. but….. any hope? or this is now a ‘stagnant’ project?

I did say that, and I still have it ready.

I bought all of these themes from their original author (wearepixel8) and we’ve been working with Envato to try to make the switch over as easy as possible, but it took a lot longer than anyone anticipated. The good news is that we have all the kinks ironed out so now we’re in the process of moving servers, once that’s done, we’ll gradually start pushing out updates for all of the wearepixel8 themes. They’ll be under a new name, but nothing will change for you.

Hi. After 6 months i am writing this. But still no updates :)

That’s Great! I’m also very excited that this product is going to be updated after a long time….

I’ll wait for your mail….

Thanks a lot :)

Just thought I’d drop in. I’ve been using this theme for quite some time. It’s quite some time since we’ve had an update or any news. The last thing I remember is. wearepixel8 was no longer happening and all projects were moving into other hands. Can we have an update on this? Thank you.

Fantastic! This is great news, good to see it’s in good hands. As this theme is very close to me and has done wonders for our fans.

Ok great, hopefully the move will be smooth.

WOW Awesome! Looking forward to the update. Will be interesting whats been updated/changed.

My site: http://theprodigyfanboy.com/


Hopefully we’ll be pushing something out sooner than later!

Ok great, thank you.
