Hello. There’s update on Wpbakery builder and Slider Revolution. When would there be a new update for them? Thank you ^^

Hi ChiikaYuki,

They will be updated in few days. We need to prepare some changes for them on our end.

Sure! Thank you so much ^ ah and great work on the theme! It’s clean and modest. Though there’s some problem like buttons cant be redirected to specific portfolio post grid, and some reason the menu only shows in desktop, and the other turns into burger menu.. for medium screen it doesn’t look very great with burger menu ^_;

Hi ChiikaYuki,

If you have technical problems with the theme, please kindly signup for our support forums and post your questions there, so our technical staff can assist you.

I’m doing the service for a client who uses your theme and would like to ask a question. The menu on mobile only displays on the home page, on other pages it does not appear, how do you solve this? I saw that in the demo of your theme this also happens.

Hi alanaguiar,

We have just checked. The mobile menu is available on all pages on our demo, so we can’t replicate the problem.

If you still have a problem with this, please kindly signup for our support forums and post your questions there, so our technical staff can assist you.

can i change loading horse to another

Hello apweslk,

It can be changed with CSS.

Hi. Are there options in theme to put the google tracking code in the header section?

Hello Patryk3211,

No, there is no such option. We’d suggest using a specialized plugin for this.

How can I add the add to cart button instead of the small icon?

Hello naczelnik,

I am afraid that would not be possible. With the theme specific design and button’s location, there is just no enough space for standard button with text.

Good day this latest version has broken visual composer completely. The site is now unusable as the visual composer only display shortcodes and not the builder. Please advise or how we can downgrade to a previous version

Hi willder,

The latest version was thoroughly tested before release and everything works fine there. Check under Appearance > Install Plugins if everything is up to date and active. It sounds like at least the WPBakery page builder is not active.

Good day, I have recently updated you theme and the portfolio CPT when trying to add images gives the following error: “Failed to load plugin: media from url http://domain.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/media/plugin.min.js" Please advise how this can be resolved as the theme is now broken. We are also using Jquery migrate helper which isn’t doing anything.

Hello, pre-sale question.

Can I have a slider in product cover page?

Hello mauriciowb,

I am afraid that would not be possible. You can only have a single image as a product cover image.

Regards, Althemist team

I am creating duplicate products. The short description doesn’t keep me.

Hello hipotv,

If creating the products with the default WooCommerce duplicate functionality – that’s how WooCommerce work. Alternatively, you may use a plugin like Duplicate Post, where you can select which product fields to be duplicated.

Regards, Althemist


Is there any option to load partial demo content (i.e. one page only?)

Hello steve573,

No, we don’t have that functionality for now.

What you can do is import the full demo on a second WordPress instance and then copy the content of the page you are interested in to your instance.

If you have further questions, please, kindly sign up for our support forums and post your questions there, so our technical staff can assist you.

is there a brand-on plugin on this theme?

Hi, Dimitar, one more question, We are still use your Vinicia, the theme you have not support . if we change to Refer theme, I am afraid you would stop support in short period of time. so, how long would you continue to support this theme?

and , is it perfect transfer from Vinicia to Refer ? Thank you

Hi tooltour,

That’s the normal life cycle of a theme. Vinicia was too old to be converted to the latest Envato rewuirements and we had no choice. Refer is a modern theme and it will be available for at least 2-3 years more.

As for migration from Vinicia to Refer, it’s a pretty simple job. We will assist you in the process if you need help.

Regards, Althemist team

ok~I would order Refer later, Thank you

Hi, I not able update the WP bakery builder, I need a license all the sudden. I worked fine from the beginning when I got the theme and started working on it. Could you please help me get access to it again. Best, Louise

Hello SmorogBrod,

We don’t want you to pay for updates! Updates are free and always will be! However, it looks like you have a problem to update your theme and plugins and we can not provide technical help here in the comments.

The latest version of the WP Bakery Page Builder is included with the latest version of the theme. If you update the theme itself, the WPBakery update should be available too.

I am afraid this is the most we can do here in the comments area. If you need further assistance, you’d need to renew your support and post your questions in our support forums.

Hope this makes it clear.

Regards, Althemist team

I did update the theme recently, but the WP bakery page builder did not update with it. I’m really not satisfied with your request on making me pay to get the update working as it’s not that I need support on how to do it, but a matter that there is obviously an error on updating it. I hope that you come around to see how unsatisfying it is that you ask me to pay for you to solve an error on your end? Please if you could help med with this, so I can start editing my site as there’s outdated material on my site right now that our customers are not happy with.

Hello Hello SmorogBrod,!

The 5.7 version of the WPBakery Page Builder plugin was added in theme version 1.6.0 on 13.02.2019. That’s exactly one month ago!

Later on 04.03.2019 there was a new theme update – v. 1.6.1

If you don’t have the WPBakery 5.7 available in your Appearance > Install Plugins page, this would mean that you are running an old version of the theme.

As I already explained, you’d need to update your theme to the latest version in order to get access to the latest version of WPBakery Page Builder.

If for some reason you can’t (or don’t know how to) update your theme, we can help you, but that’s considered support and we can’t do it here in the comments area. Yes, access to our support forums requires a valid support extension which is paid, but this is the official Envato Support policy, not something we decide.

Update your theme by using the official Envato Market Plugin OR manually and the WPBakery update will be available in your dashboard.

We have tested the update and everything seems fine and in working condition – no errors of any sort.

What we suggest is manually download the latest theme files and try to replace them on your server using an FTP client. That’s it.

There is literally nothing else we can do.

Hello, how do I remove the category grid and text header ontop of the shop page? I can’t seem to find the settings. Basically I just want show the filter menu and products that are underneath.

Hello ImmortalAbyss,

please, kindly signup for our support forums and post your questions there, so our technical staff can assist you.

Is it possible to display product excerpt and label in product list?

Thank you!

Many thanks!!

Last 2 questions before purchasing!

1. Can I remove ‘About author’ section from the single blog page? 2. Does this theme support Multi Vendor plugin?


Hello thinkabiz,

“About author” section is a core WordPress feature. It is only displayed if author info is entered in the author profile. Otherwise it’s hidden. It’s the same with any properly coded theme.

WC Marketplace, WC Vendors and Dokan woild work fine, but if you need a really great integration with custom vendor features, you should check our Rigid theme.

Happy holidays, Althemist team


I love the look of the theme.

Presale question 1: the theme scores badly in Google PageSpeed Insights for mobile (only 28 out of 100). Do you plan on optimizing this?

Question 2: Will you build in support for Gutenberg?


Hi marfert,

the low rank is mostly caused by some demo images not optimized and not all resources cached. Other than that – the theme works pretty fast (ranking depends on content, server quality and also location).

Not really sure what do you mean about Gutenberg. The theme is fully compatible with WordPress 5.0. However, it stricktly depends on WP Bakery Page Builder, so you can’t use it with pure Gutenberg anyway. I mean, with pure Gutenberg you’d lose a lot of custom functionalities. Other than that – yes, it works with the Gutenberg editor.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Althemist team

Can I update my wordpress to the 5.0 version? is the theme and its plugins compatible?


Yes, you can safely update.

Refer theme, Refer plugin and WooCommerce are compatible with WordPress 5.0

I know your theme only has one PRODUCT PAGE layout. However please consider adding a different way to show gallery. Because this one only looks good if you have very nice photography showcasing the item being bought.

However for stores that only have product pictures this layout is not nice. A better idea would be to have the image on slider with some thumbnails to the right side which is standard on ecommerce sites.

Any ideas if this is a future update?


The update will be released next week. Thanks for your 5stars review. :)

Regards, Althemist team

Hi. It’s been two weeks and was wondering if this is still a possibility. No pressure but still like to know when is it happening. Thanks in advance.


Sorry for the late response. We had some problems in the office and some delays in lur schedule. We are currently on vacation na d our office is closed, so it would probably be in the first few days of the new year. Happy holidays and thanks for your patience.

hello. I have a question, for this theme, can i display the countdown the same as the one in Sash theme ? the one im referring to is sash “DAILY DEALS” on its front page.

i like everything about this theme, but i like Sash count down feature.


Yes, it’s got the same type of product slider:


However, Rigid is a lot more powerfull theme. With Refer what you see on the demo is pretty much the same, while with Rigid you can build almost everything.

Regards, Althemist team

ok, saw the count down already after you updated it. previously it doesnt show the timer. nice. this is perfect. thanks.

i would get Rigid if the price is the same as Refer.

I am afraid the price can’t be the same as Refer, as it’s a lot more powerful theme. It will always be the more expensive one.

Hi Everybody,

We’d like to inform you that currently we have a severe problem with our hosting servers and moving all our sites to a new hosting company. Our sites are currently unavailable in some parts of the world and our technical team is overloaded, so response rate is a bit lower than usual.

We’ll be back with full capacity in few hours.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Regards, Althemist team

Also. your theme is very well optimized but takes 10 full seconds to load. Any way to lower this down?


Hi ALCosmico,

actually it takes up to 3.8 seconds, not 10.

However, keep in mind that loading speed would greatly vary and mostly depend on your location, the server location and the current server load. It looks like you’re based in the US and testing from Canada, while our sites are hosted in the EU. When tested from London, it takes up to 3.8 (sometimes go as low as 2,6) seconds, which is a great result for e-commerce website with so much content on the home page.


Check this one too:


Hope this helps.
