Discussion on PressEvent - Event Management Theme

PRESALE QUESTION : I would like a user once granted permission to create and mage their own even.

Is this possible ?

E.G : Id like to use the theme to allow multiple events managed by unique individuals.

Is this possible ?


events are, by default, managed by admins. If you assign a user role of, for example, Author – every author can edit/add only it’s posts/events. Is that an answer to your question?


Hi, I’d like to remove custom post meta (see 1970 and patrick mathieu : http://i.imgur.com/fKdRNO5.png) in the listing of www.hackfest.ca/?fp_type=speaker can you point me out where and how I might be able to do it? I try to use the option “no meta” in Posts Settings (in custom post configuration) and nothing happen.

Also trying to fix the date as it is always showing 1970? Current time zone is newyork using: 2014/06/03 format and time format: 14:13 weeks start on sunday.

Thanks in advance!


I see you have entirely deleted the meta from the list view. If you wanted to keep the date, please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account, and we’ll gladly look into this.

Wish you a very great day!


Hi! Just a warning if you consider buying this theme. It looks nice and have good features – but it is SLOW when it comes to loading pages. I have loading times of 3-6 seconds on empty pages on a fresh WP-installation with no other plugins enabled. If I switch to another theme the same pages loads under 1 seconds. If you test a site which has this theme, on Pingdom Tools you get quite poor results. It has mostly to do with two files: all.css.php and all.js.php which loads very slooow. But again, if you can stand slow sites, you can use it. /Patrik

Hi Patrik!

Oh, we’re so sorry to hear that? Have you checked with our support team, to help you? Please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home first, so that we could look into it. Please attach an admin account and an FTP account. It’s not mandatory to give us 2 stars and a bad comment, to catch our attention. But thank you for the feedback – we’ll check the issue, of course, maybe indeed the technique for rendering styles and JS is outdated.

Best regards, Nick


How do I change static front page to full width? I have selected the page template as full width but it is not working for the home page!



what do you mean by “full width”? Here are 2 variants http://i.imgur.com/RFGJz8E.png

Please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account, a link to your site, and the answer to the above question. Thanks.


Found this mistake on mobile and tablets with the page content margins.

Tried the following code but not working,

@media only screen and (min-width: 240px) and (max-width: 479px){ .branding{ margin: 30px 0 !important; } }

Thanks Sri

Hi Sri,

can you please send us a link to the issued page, and describe in more details what the problem is? Thanks.


Hi Nick,

Here is the link for the site http://www.nhlcinnamon.com/

If you open this on a tablet or in a small window on a computer you will see there are no margins.

Thanks Sri


try to use this CSS: http://pastebin.com/dmywhzLk



It just moved the footer section! And on mobiles if the theme is full screen layout mode slider not showing.

Also what the size images should I use for the slider for full width?

Thanks Sri

Please contact us at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home by opening a ticket. Please attach an admin account, so we could test the CSS-es. Thanks.

How do I set the blog page to show content instead of feat.img+excerpt?

(Or, how do I remove feat.img and show html-formatted content in the excerpt?)

Blog page with list view as layout.


please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account – there are some options we would need to check also. Thanks.

Hello, how do you make it so that when people want to register and pay for an event, they don’t have to be already signed in. Having difficulty with this as things seem to work fine once logged in (as admin for example) yet I can’t get to the “log-in” page as a new person.

I’ve edited the settings to allow for this in the WP settings and the theme. Please help.


if you selected a login page http://i.imgur.com/qPyg6Te.png than you should probably have this on your site http://i.imgur.com/SGH0Rde.png

If you have any issues with the above please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account and a link to your site. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply! I had tried that before, and just did again and the log-in page still won’t work. See for yourself.



it has for some reason a redirecting loop – probably a permission issue, or a Wordpress misconfiguration. Please make sure all your installation files are meeting these requirements http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_File_Permissions . You can also try to re-install Wordpress using the backend build-in option. Please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account and a FTP account if you’ll fail with the above. Thanks.

PRESALE Question: Where can I see how the program with simultaneous sessions and multiple days will look like? Can you add info like presentation title, abstract, speaker name? Can you make the presentation title with slink so it will pop up the full abstracts and details for that session? Can you have multiple speaker for one session like a panel? where can I see the options for program builder and how it will look like?


please contact us at support@cosmothemes.com, so we could speak about the sandbox details. Thanks.

Does it work for child theme?

Yes, you have to create a style.css in your child theme directory, that starts with the following content: http://codepen.io/nlozovan/pen/ogLbRY

Note that you have to change the info according to your current configuration (theme name, theme author, etc).

Try to open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home and tell us what CSS and where are you trying to add, also what are you trying to change, so we could give you some hints on this.


I would like to increase my logo area (width) in order to use my own image. I already have style.css im my PressEvent-child directory. Where should I looking for edit it?

Unfortunately we need to take a look at your site. In order to do that please consider opening a ticket. Thank you.

I tried importing via your instructions however the Demo did not import. How Do you achieve:

(i) The Frontpage with slider ? (ii) The footer with Children posts: Speakers / Event program / Latest tweets (iii) Contact Us page


please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account so we could try it out. Yeah, sometimes the importer plugin goes nuts…

Hello, why demo is corrupted ? Could you please resolve ?

Hello and thank you for reporting that – we moved our demos on a different server, and I guess the CSS-es are broken. We’ll fix that as soon as possible.


Accordion is currently not functioning correctly. Headings cannot be seen.

please make sure you have this update https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/entries/32588952-Shortcode-issues-after-Wordpress-4-0-update

If that’s not the case, please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account. Cheers!

It worked, thank you

Is there any push to make this theme responsive ? Given SEO, Google Search algorithm, etc ?

If you are, when will it happen ?

Sorry, no pending changes for now…

There is a Main Menu item that pops-up. It isn’t in my Pages or menu list. How can I remove it ?

EVENT > Presentation EVENT > Testimonial


please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an admin account, so we could take a look. Thanks.

Used your import seetings and it moved

Ok, glad you’ve made it!

When I use SSL some JavaScript libs do not load such as Google font / map because the link in the template doesn’t have https. Where can I locate these links in the PressEvent template ?

Thanks for reporting – please check in header.php for the http hardcoded link. If you’ll still have other issues with this, please open a ticket at https://cosmothemes.zendesk.com/home with an FTP account, and we’ll gladly check directly on your SSL installation.


The font can be found in \PressEvent\lib\core\load.php at line 82. But the validate jquery file is not ours, I guess, as there are no requests started in our theme toward this location.


PRESALE QUESTION: Is it possible to have all presentations made by each speaker listed on the speaker’s page? Also, if there is more than one speaker for each presentation, will they be listed?

Can the program be “clickable” so that the presentation title could be linked to the actual presentation?

Hello and thank you for taking into consideration our theme!

Speakers are related to presentations, then presentation to a certain event. Therefore, the event page contains all the info. Unfortunately, by default, Speaker page does not have links to it’s presentations, unless you write these links in speaker’s page content.


Hello, What’s the average time for a support ticket to be answered. I’ve a major issue [ticket #7846] with the theme that need resolving. Thank you, Steven.

Still no support. I’ve downgraded WordPress and read through your ‘well documented’ PDF but still having major issues with this theme.

If I get no contact from you I’ll have to assume the theme is broke and unsupported and make a complaint and refund request with ThemeForest.

Hi Steven,

Hope we have helped you.

I hoped you would have help me too but unfortunately my client now has a customer facing website that has errors on it, please could you respond to my ticket?

How do you add an Event to the website once it has been created ?

An event can be directly accessed when published and added via the theme menu: http://i.imgur.com/DkJ1aMI.png Also, you can select your mainpage to display a static page http://i.imgur.com/xksTmwa.png and edit it to insert a selected event shortcode or all at once: http://i.imgur.com/Xf1Xwuu.png
