Quick question… on my portfolio page I would like to know if there is any method to arrange the items into a certain order. I have pictures that I would like to be in front of others. I changed the date of the post, but it seems to not work. Any suggestion? And my second question. When I’m moving the mouse over the item (picture) it shows the coding I used inside the picture. There is any way to make that description to not display? Thank you very much! http://friendlydesign.us/portfolio/

Hi chioibasu,

1. You can sort portfolio item order from

Admin > Portfolio > Sort Portfolio Items > Drag and drop portfolio items to order

2. Hover text are title text which browser displays with their “default” settings and we can’t remove it. Title tag text are also necessary for lightbox image description.

Thank you :)

hi, i have both the html and WP versions of “pure gift”.

Any plans of a “responsive” WP version ?

kind regards,


Hi RC,

In recent future there is not plan to make theme responsive.

Thank you :)

Excellent template! But Shortcode Tabs don’t work. Why can it be? http://aprelkovstudio.ru

It looks plugin css tab style is conflict with theme css style. You can fix it by customize plugin css style. ( This requires good skill in css ).

Problem was not in css. I deleted css-file, but problem remains. After I deleted js-file problem disappeared. And this plugin also continued to work.

This file was very short: jQuery(document).ready(function() { jQuery(’#demo’).DataTable(); } );

Great :)

Thank you MasterAl for your feedback for fixing the issue.

Love this theme! Found a glitch on the portfolio page that I’m not sure how to fix… There are two pages of portfolio items with several categories. When you select a single category, it shows you just a few items (which is right) but it shows two pages in the count below it and when you click on (page 2) it jumps to showing page 2 of all the categories.

Please send your website URL so we can check and give you feedback.

Hello, is latest version of theme ready for WP 4.4? Regards René

Hello W4media,

PureGift latest version will be live in next week which will be compatible with WP 4.4.

Thank you :)

Do you have a new release date?

Yes, you can download latest version. Please read update comments before updating this version because it has some major changes in sidebar sections.

Hello guys, WP 4.5 is coming soon. So is your theme ready for it or will you release a new version of PureGift for WP 4.5? regards René

Hi René,

We will do compatibility test with WP 4.5. If it requires any thing to fix then we will upload latest version otherwise just add version name.

Thank you :)

Hello, does Pure Gift support WP 4.5? I can’t find new version of WP in description?

You can update to WP 4.5 because we didn’t find any issue after update latest WP version.

Hi there. I’m having some issues with this theme …

- The initial slider is with a few glitches. How’s the proper way to configure some pictures to be at the Home Slider?

- When creating the FAQ section (using the FAQ template), when I try to define the sidebar as ‘none’, it inserts an default blog sidebar/widget. I think it’s a bug into this theme. I would like to use none sidebars to this page, to use the full width of it. Is that possible?!?

Rgs, Alessandro.

Hello Alessandro,

1. Home slider is very simple. Go to admin > slider > add new > add title, featured image and hyper link (optional ), publish it. Can you explain issue with more details and your website URL so we can get exact problem.

2. FAQ page has sidebar left or right feature so for full width template you have to replace current faq page template code with below code. You can edit it from admin > appearance > editor > click on right side “template-faq.php” file faq template file.

  Template Name: FAQ
get_header(); ?>
  <div id="container">
  <div id="content"> 
  get_template_part('content', 'faq');
  get_footer(); ?>

Thank you :)

Tks. The 1st tip, about the slider, worked flawless. Great!

The 2nd, Do i have to substitute all “template-faq.php” file content for this code above? Or just a piece of the code?

And by the way: About the social media … I would like to have the possibility to insert a new social media on high-top bar: Instagram. How can I do this? With the same icon-stylish used to Facebook, Twitter and others?

Rgs, Alessandro.

Hi Alessandro,

2. You only need to add one time in FAQ template file because there is only single template file in the list.

3. You can change not used social icon image with Instagram image like below example. First download image given icon filder url – 16px x 16px size – Instagram icon image and then upload it from wordpress admin.


Get uploaded Instagram image full path URL and add in below custom css. Add custom css in admin > appearance > theme options > custom css/javascript > “add custom css code” box

#top-bar-right ul li a.icon-stumbleupon {
    background: url(------enter-instagram-image-full-path-here.png----) no-repeat 0 0;

Now in theme options > social media > StumbleUpon – add your Instagram page URL

If all above steps looks difficult then please send your website admin login details from our profile page contact form ( http://themeforest.net/user/softwebmedia ) so we can add it.

Thank you.

Is this theme supports with woocommerce ?

Hello priyadilsha95,

Hi there. Can you please help me have the embeded videos that are part of this shortcode ( [image src=”/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/responsive-design-video.png” link=”https://youtu.be/Isxh3hG6w7k” lightbox=”true” lightbox_title=”Responsive Design Explained” lightbox_description=”Responsive Design Explained” ] ) to be visible? https://friendlydesign.us/ (click on the parrot) It looks like it doesn’t work with SSL (https) activated on my website. When I’m deactivating the ssl it works fine. Also when I’m embeding the video outside of the shortcode (without popup function) is working fine too. It looks like your shortcode is automatically converting my https//youtube… video to http//youtube… Is there any way I can change that in coding so the videos part of that shortocode still work with ssl? I will really appreciate your help! Thank you so much for looking into this.

Hi there. There is any way I can add a captcha service to my contact form? http://friendlydesign.us/contact-us/ It’s so annoying to receive spams every day, to not be able to do anything about it.
