Please, why is is that only the default permalinks works with your theme. All other permalink gives a 404 error. How do I correct this.
Please save your permalinks twice when you change that option. It will work for all permalink settings.
I am unable to load any of the media when I go to install the dummy content. Thoughts?
XML file for dummy contents is working fine on our side. Please come to our support site and share your url so i can do it for you.
Hi there im looking at getting this theme and i have a few questions for you.
Am i able to completely customize the color scheme/ themes or does it need to be one you have template created?
Thanks for taking interest in this theme.
Political Press Theme offers four different color variations. You can change color scheme from theme options. It does not have options to customize fonts and colors. If you are familiar with CSS then you can target elements using ‘Quick CSS Box’ in theme options.
My home page template suddenly stopped working. The page is assigned to Home Template, but it seems to be using some sort of default one that I can’t seem to find. Thoughts?
We are communicating with your in support ticket you have created on our support site. Your problem will be solved asap.
Considering this theme… would need to change “globe” background. Can you give me image specs? Could it be changed in child theme?
Thanks for taking interest in this theme. You can change that image using simple CSS code. That could be done in child theme or in Theme option > Styling options > Quick CSS. World map image is 1252px X 571px.
I have two question before I purchase your theme.
1. Am I able to add a caption over a slider image?
2. I purchased a political theme from another author which I was disappointed in because the whole front page of the site was only widgets and not customizable how I would like. Are your pages customizable? For example: On your homepage under the slider area in that light grey section could I put my own social media icons there instead of the three rectangle boxes?
Full width slider have post contents over it. You can see it in the following link.
You can turn things on and off on home page from theme options. You can not add social icons on mentioned place without changing the code. You can get help from our support site for any kind of questions and customization..
your template seems very good and I am thinking of purchasing it.
I would like to ask you some things about it:
Will I be able to add more fields in the form next to the default slider in order to capture more data except of name and email if I want to?
Also, is it possible to customize the template? For example in the homepage instead of blog posts could I just place text or something else?
Thanks for you help!
Also will I be able to place a petition created for example with SpeakUp! Email Petitions instead of the WP Email Capture Plugin next to the slider? Thanks
Thanks for taking interest in this product.
We have used WP Email Capture plugin for subscription form next to basic slider. That plugin do not have options to increase fields.
I am working on next update for this theme. You will be able to put contents from default editor on home page. Options are available to hide posts from here.
You mentioned plugins are not compatible with this theme. Widget of WP Email Capture is compatible with this theme.
Thanks & Regards.
I’m making changes under theme options but nothing is showing up on my actual page? what is going on?
Please visit our support site and share your url so i can see and help you fixing the problem.
I selected “yes” for the following:
Do you want to display recent posts in default layout on home page ?
I would like to show more text than the estimated 50 words. Is it possible to make an edit so that I can show 80-100 words before the post cuts off?
Follow screenshot given below and change words count in mentioned file.
Thank you – that was just what I was looking for. However, I am not not able to reveal more than 55 words. I’d like to allow for 80-100 words. Is this possible?
To control default length for excerpt you have to add a function in your functions.php file. Follow screenshot given below.
I’m not used to adding functions like that, but I gave it a shot. I inserted exactly what was in the screenshot below the Custom Excerpt Method line in the functions.php file and I ended up with this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ‘(’ in /home/content/30/11918230/html/wp-content/themes/politicalpress-theme/functions.php on line 447
I clicked back, so I am still able to access the functions.php page (without the error), but when I try to take the new code away and update the file.. the error message pops up again.
Please help! Thank you.
Please visit our support site and post a ticket so i can help.
Hi, I posted a ticket yesterday morning (Ticket ID: HJL-756-39058).
Very much looking forward to hearing back. Very stressful issue!
Where can I find the changelog to see what changed in the new version?
Please find change log on the bottom of Item detail page on following link.
Hi, nice theme, I must admit. But I have key question: can I place a video in the main slider box? This is really important for me.
Thanks for liking this theme.
There is no option available to put videos in slider area.
Is it possible to change the url slug ‘campaign-trail-event’?
Yes. After a small change in code it is possible to change this slug.
Can the background be changed? I am talking about the background that has the world map on it.
Sorry, PURCHASED tag is not being displayed with your name.
So, if your client purchased this theme then ask him for purchase code and use that to communicate with us on our support site. Or comment from that account.
Sorry, I did not purchase the template. I am considering purchasing it, but if I cannot change the background then it’s no use to me. I just needed a simple yes or no answer.
You can change map background in header and footer both by using quick css box in theme options. That is an easy task and i can guide you about it.
Hi, I have purchased and installed this theme – and it’s great. The only issue I currently have is that if I make any edits to the menu, (change the names of the pages or anything) The Donate button disappears and I can’t get it to come back. Any idea why? In theme options, it is still set to appear… It just doesn’t.
Please visit our support site and share your url so i can check the problem.
Thanks & Regards

Your child theme is named incorrectly so it doesn’t work unless you rename the child theme directories. Easy enough to take care of for the experienced, but a beginner would be stumped.
Thanks for pointing it out. We will fix this issue in coming update.
Possible to put videos in the gallery instead of pictures like in the preview?
Sorry this function is not available.
One more quick presale question:
How customizable is the homepage under the 3 “feature” boxes? (as in the blog area and the sidebar)
Thanks, truly awesome theme!
Home page is fully manageable from theme options. You can enable and disable post listings and also can increase or decrease number of posts. You can also add contents using page editor from the back end.
Home page template has its own separate sidebar and you can manage its widgets from widgets options.
I just read in the comment above that you said you can add content via the page editor… does that content appear below or above the posts?
Those contents will appear above the posts as you can see in following screenshot.
