Hi again ZERGE. I only need one more thing to run mi web-blog (http://exmarketing.es/). I would like to put the same font in the menu and right sidebar. I don´t know where I can don the change but I only know that I want the title font in these parts (menu and rigt sidebar)

Please, be attentive. Read my previous comment: ”... and then Save All Changes (via Theme Options)”

OK! I only “Uptdate File” in the editor. Problem solved, great theme, great author.

Nice :)

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

Hi, i just install the theme for my blog and it looks amazing but i’ve got 2 pbs (i’m not a technical girl) 1. I delete some lines on the Style.css because i didn’ want the + on the top header but i cancelled to much … how can i find the original lines :/ 2. My intagram widget is not working Thanks Olivia


1. Restore original style.css from the zip file.

2. Read this comment – http://themeforest.net/item/phrase-responsive-wordpress-blog-theme/discussion/4265568?page=2#comment_3604852

Great theme! I really like the minimalistic yet unique look of it. got a few customization questions though (i’m a complete noob)

1. The top level navigation menu is not showing up as well as the ‘drop down’ menu (i.e. the one activated by clicking the ’+’ above the navigation menu – as shown in the demo)

2.Is it possible to remove the navigation block and just have the navigation button, otherwise is it possible to change the colour of the block alone?

3. How can I remove the ‘box shadow’ and/or the hover colour without affecting the rest of the theme?

4. Is it possible to change the size of the ‘featured image’ in the post so it isn’t restricted to a pre-defined width and height? Can I define my own size?

5. How do I enable the social sharing options within the post (i.e. display the buttons within the post)?

Your help would be much appreciated


Thanks :)

1. It’s seems some conflicts with your plugins/widgets. Show me your site.

2. I’m not sure I understand your question, could you please clarify?

3. Add to the style.css:
.entry-post .entry-content { box-shadow: none !important; }

4. Yes, you can change it in the file functions.php:

add_image_size( 'big-thumb', 970, 490, true );

5. You can do it via Phrase Options -> Single Page Options -> Code for bookmarking and sharing services

Lovely theme. Some questions:

- Social share: You’ve incorporated AddThis, which is nice. However, I’ve had some trouble with their plugin in the past particularly when it comes to selecting the services. Ultimately I’d want FB/Twitter/G+/Pinterest. Is set up handled via theme options or outside of it?

- Disqus: Love that it’s built in. Is the “Disqus comments: comments powered by Disqus” block that appears at the very bottom of comments section removable? Seems unnecessary and a bit awkward.

- Can sidebar be enabled on full post pages?

- I’m not sure if this is cause by my monitor but there seems some color/shadow overlap that occurs at bottom-right corner of post boxes (where the post icon shows and has color hover effect). This happens on right side only. Happy to email screenshot.

- Social media icons – are they available anywhere?

- Some plugins I use and would like to know if you foresee compatibility issues: W3 Total Cache, Yoast SEO (I’m currently experiencing an issue where merely having the plugin activated disables date-based archives. No fix yet. )

- Social feed in sidebar: is Pinterest an option?

- Blog name/logo: In absence of a logo, what would approx position of blog name be when text is entered?

- Speed: I ran the demo through Google PageSpped + GTmetrix and the grade is not so optimal. It also points out some elements that seem easily improvable. A big concern and would love your thoughts on that.

Thanks in advance!

Hi NirAmaya,

Thank you for your interest in our theme.

1. Yes, you can use any sharing services or your own code.

2. No.

3. Yes, both layout availble, content and content+sidebar.

4. Through third-party plugins.

5. I can’t see a reason why they wouldn’t be compatible.

6. No. Use third-party plugins for this.

7. The same position as the logo image.

8. Some parts can be improved easily. This is just a demo site.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.


I had a question regarding this theme.

1. Is there an easy way to automate the gallery slider? It looks like the only way to change the gallery slides is manually at this time.



No. Show me your site.

You can see if you go here – http://zcoleman.com/3025-polk-ave-childhood-memories/. The slideshow doesn’t change automatically, but if you go back to http://zcoleman.com it will for the same post.

Aha, sorry, also in the file single-media.php


I apologize I had one more question regarding this theme.

1. Is there an easy way to change the amount of characters included in the except for each blog post?

No, not without development work.

Hmmm… okay.

This can be changed for all posts easily, but not individually.

hello! I really love this theme, but I am not sure if I want to use the drawer at the top. Would it be possible to hide it? Or even possibly move it to the bottom?

Also, this may be a silly question, but I just want to make sure – is it possible to use a custom header that is an image? Or is it mostly just text? And speaking of customization, is it possible to customize the squiggle graphic that is under the menu (it kind of looks like this ^, except the caret is reversed)?

Thank you!

Hi sharpandkeen,

1. Yes, you can hide it.

2. Only after code modification.

3. Yes, you can customize your header.

4. Yes, you can replace/remove this “squiggle graphic”.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

Firstly great work. I know that there is a recommended size for the featured images. I was wondering what you could do to eliminate this restriction. I’d like to have images that are slightly smaller than the recommended size as the featured. If the image isn’t the minimum size it get pulled to the right and there is a hideous white the fills the minimum space that is required. Is there a way to make this white space transparent and center the images that are smaller?

Hi Masterash19,

It’s only recommendation, so you can use any image size. Show me your site with this issue.

Here you go, thank you. http://hadleyshaunts.com


There are two ways:

1. Add to the style.css:
.entry-thumb img { width: 100% }
and images will stretch to entire post.


2. Add to the style.css:
.entry-post { background-color: transparent; text-align: center; }
.entry-content { background: #FFF; }

Try both.

Dear Zerge, I have been working with Phrase and love it! But I do have a few little questions. I am running a literary journal, so the features I want for my site might be a bit different from someone with a blog, business site, or portfolio. http://tupeloquarterly.org/ 1) I have the theme set for a static front page, and I was able to toggle down to show “1” post, but I actually want it to be TRULY static, as in, only the title/logo and the main menu I have set—no posts at all. Right now, I have achieved that by making my posts private (because I want to make sure, until we launch, that our readers can’t see anything), but right now, when I am logged in or when I make posts public, one still shows up on the front page with a “read more” link. Is it possible to eliminate this? 2) There is also post navigation at the bottom of every page, which I think is unnecessary for our site—since I will not be utilizing categories in a traditional way. Is there any way to get rid of that, so that it is just blank space below my posts?

THANK YOU!!! I know these are relatively specific requests, so if it isn’t possible, I will work with what I’ve got. The theme is fantastic.

Hi Rachel,

1. Try to create a new Page with blank content and set it as Front page.

2. Add to the style.css:
.navigation-block, #relatedposts-block { display: none; }

Thank you, that worked perfectly.

CLARIFICATION—Sorry, in my second question, I might have been unclear. There are actually 2 boxes that op up below my post, one “related posts” box, and one “post navigation” box. If possible I’d like to eliminate both. Thank you! Rachel

Where I can change the size of title 1, title 2,etc.?

You can specify a new styles for headings in the style.css

Could you please tell me where we should go to contact you for support? Also, where can I find the documentation for this theme? (yes, we’ve already purchased it) :)

Thanks in advanced!


1. Send me a message through my profile

2. Inside the zip file downloaded from TF. Main File (s)

Thank you! I was able to find the documentation! I works much better when I left the index file in the same folder! oops!

Hi there. Just bought this theme for a client and it said that the HTML files were included in the package but I do not seem them included.

Of course. But it’s not a problem :)

Well it evidently is if I purchased it thinking there was html files are there aren’t any… ??

“HTML Files” not means “HTML Template included”

You can always ask before buying :)


I bought this theme yesterday and have been trying to install it but I keep getting the following error. I’ve generated the API key I think its asking for but where do I put it? Any pointers would be appreciated

error – Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in …/httpdocs/CMG/WP/wp-content/themes/wp-phrase/envato-wordpress-toolkit-library/class-envato-protected-api.php on line 344


Just remove from the file functions.php:
add_action('admin_init', 'ct_on_admin_init');

Hi ! I just bought this incredible theme. But, i need to translate it in French (read more, time format,etc.). Any .po File ? There’s nothing in “language” directory.

Need Help. Thx ;-)

It works fine :) Just select the language directory /languages

Or give me access to WP admin, and I’ll show you how it works.

Hum.. i’m sorry.. the directory was protected. Now it works ! :whistle:

No problem. Let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification.

Hi Zerge. Translation ok.

Another question: - How can i modify the space between 2 lines when i press “Enter” ? The space is too large. - “Shift+Enter” don’t work.. there’s no “line return” on preview post mode. The second line is not below the 1st one. :-/



Do you mean the WordPress post editor?

Yes ! It’s ok in WP Post Editor but not in preview mode (before publish)

I think it’s not a theme issue. But in any case, I need to see this on your WP admin. Send me a message through my profile

1. How have you updated your theme?

2. Show me your site.

Hi again. I would like to change the size font of “Title 2”, “Title 3” when I write a post, I want to reduce it. Where I can do it?

Anywhere or I have to put ir in some special area…

Add to the end of file style.css
