dear sir, i bought your template and would like to install my text and visual data by loading wordpress but i cant, can you lead me.thnks

Hi josweb! Im checking in to see if it’s possible to get an instagram social button. Thanks for any help you can provide. I love this template.

Please contact me through my profile page and I will make you one.

Hello Josweb,

I purchased your theme and im having trouble with uploading the theme in wordpress. I get this message:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-2261099-retro-scroll-creative-one-page-html-template.zip

Unpacking the package… Installing the theme… The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.

Is it really missing or is there something else going on?


This is a html template and not a Wordpress theme.

Hello. Love the template! I unfortunately did not notice that it is not responsive (my own fault). I was wondering if there is any way I could buy a responsive version? Cheers

Hi, sorry about that. Unfortunately as it is an older template it isn’t responsive. I think it would take quite a bit of work to do so and some of the features may not work.


I am thinking about buying the template and i had a couple of questions.

- Is it possible to change the background image? - Is it possible to have a video portfolio? - Is it possible to have the slider menu at the top of the page “not slide”, and just be a still image with text? - Is it possible to replace the logo? or is it possible to have instead of the company’s name a logo?

Do you mean the top navigation? If so – yes.

He Josweb, Do you by any chanche have a wordpress version of this template too?

No sorry I’m afraid not.

Thank you so much for the wonderful theme. Quick question: I am trying to insert icons from the glyph chart into a table provided by the “extras” file, but my icons show up at the top of the page instead of in the table, what am I doing incorrectly?

Sorry but I can’t see that you have purchased the template?

Hi, I just purchased your theme, however unfortunately it wouldn’t install. I downloaded the zip file and used the standard wordpress installer with that. I received the following feedback:

Unpacking the package… Installing the theme… The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.

I’m using wordpress 3.9.1 maybe it is the latest update that is making it incompatible?

Would appreciate some help, I think the theme is great and really want to get to use it :)

Hi, this is a html template and not Wordpress.

Oh, that makes sense. Very annoying though (not your fault) as someone had listed it on a Wordpress themes blog as a cool idea, so I hadn’t registered that it wasn’t WP. I was wondering how you managed to configure all the pages to stick together like that within WP…

I still think the theme is pretty cool so I’ll just use it on another site :)

I am looking to purchasing this as well.

I am currently checking it out on a friends site thats hes currently building.

Its a great theme by the way i love it but he is having an issue with the recent posts.

He made the graphic bigger and he pushed the menu down but the recent post wont go down and he cant figure it out. I would be doing the exact same thing so if you can let me know how to fix it you will gain one more buyer.

Again this is a great template im loving it so far


I’m not sure what you are talking about sorry!

OK we made the logo image larger than whats in the the template but when we scroll down the menu pops up in the middle of the logo is there a way to move the menu down when you scroll?

Please could you get the purchaser of the file to ask these questions as we’re advised not to reply to non purchasers. Thank you.

I’m interested in purchasing this theme, but I notice that the slider is not working at all anymore. When I first looked at this theme a few weeks ago it worked, now its just blank. Any plans to update before I purchase??

Sorry my ThemeForest iframe was pointing to a test version :)


I purchased this theme some time ago and have greatly enjoyed it. My client is pleased, as well. My question is, until recently the site was working wonderfully. However, now it appears that everything in the main scrolling box at the top of the page has disappeared. Can you help me figure out what is causing this issue?

Thank you.


If everything was working but is not now, what have you changed or added?

Hi Josweb, I’m really interested in this great template. My only concern is that in safari (I’m on v 6.0.5) when I scroll down or hover buttons the menu is very wobbly (after I closed the themeforest top purchase banner). What does this depend from? thanks

Sorry I cant replicate this it’s smooth for me.

I disagree with GoldenStateWolf. As someone who has basic knowledge of html/css, I was easily able to customize this template, and even integrate it into a CMS with ease. EVERY line of script is outlined on the html file, and when I had issues, the author helped me when needed.

Thank you very much for the reassurance! :) If you haven’t already and you are happy with the theme, please could you give it a star rating? It’s very damaging to the author when somebody decides to give it only 2 stars!

Hi josweb, still a bit new so unaware of how to give you a star rating? You’ve been extremely helpful and definitely deserve a 5 star! Cheers.

It’s on your downloads.

Fair warning, not the most user friendly template. Deviating too much from the author’s format can cause problems.

Hi, I’m sorry that you feel this way but it’s very unfair to write such a comment. I always go out of my way to help all customers. If there was something you couldn’t accomplish I would have been happy to help out. With over 150 purchases and no complaints I’m a little confused! As a new purchaser I would advise to contact the person before writing damaging comments or leaving a low rating. Thanks, Jo

Hi there, Thank you so much for the awesome template – works very well, and I’m currently using the dark design :)

I’d like to know how to remove the top drop-down box? I found that the div ID is called “dropdownpanel”, however, when searching for it in the index.html file, I couldn’t find it to remove it?

Any help would be great – thank you!

Many thanks for the encouragement!

Hi again, so sorry to ask for support again, but it seems I’ve run into a problem.

The javascript validation on the Contact form seems to be broken? I had errors coming up that the code: <script type=”text/javascript”> //<![CDATA[ $(document).ready(function(){ $(”#form”).validate(); }); //]]> </script>

Didn’t work.. Once I removed that, the errors stopped. Is there a missing file or did I do something wrong?

It’s probably easier if you contact me through my profile page so that I can help you.


I downloaded this template and set it up for a client. Everything works wonderfully. Except that I can’t seem to get the contact form to work. I set everything up as per the PDF but I am not able to get the emails.

Can you let me know what I am missing?

Thank you.


Are you testing online and your server has php5?

Yes. I did test online. As far as if my server has php5 – I am only assuming that it does. I’ll check and get back to you. Thank you for your help.


Just purchased and LOVE it! I have a question about the portfolio portion (Pirobox) of the design. When I mouse over a portfolio thumbnail and click on “view” to pop up the large image it seems that only one large image can be added even though there are < > nav buttons in the bottom right hand corner? Is it possible to have more than one large image associated with each thumbnail in the portfolio section?

EXAMPLE – I designed a series of CD covers that are best shown together. I’d like to use one CD cover as the thumbnail in the portfolio section and then be able to cycle through the rest of the associated CD cover images within the large window after it is opened. Is this possible?

Hi, yes I think there may well be! If you go to: http://www.pirolab.it/pirobox/ and scroll down to see the comments, you will see that somebody asked a similar question. Try:
<a href="big1.jpg" rel="gallery" class="pirobox_gall" title="your title"><img src="small1.jpg" /></a>
<a href="big2.jpg" rel="gallery" class="pirobox_gall" title="your title"></a>
<a href="big3.jpg" rel="gallery" class="pirobox_gall" title="your title"></a>
<a href="big4.jpg" rel="gallery" class="pirobox_gall" title="your title"></a>

You can see the links are empty but pirobox recognizes those empty links as a gallery.

how can i make it so the portfolio only shows 8 images at a time before pagination kicks in?


change 12 > 8 on the jquery found under the portfolio section.
<script type="text/javascript"> //<![CDATA[ jQuery(function($){ $('.gallery').easyPaginate({ step:12 }); }); //]]> </script>

will there be a wp version?

Hopefully, yes! I have teamed up with a WP developer and this is the first theme we’re working on. It should be out in January.


Love the theme. My only complaint is that it looks bad if someone tries to print the page or save it as a pdf. Any plans to include a print.css file? Or, do you have any suggestions on ways I can make this look nicer to someone wanting to print?

Thanks, Erik

You could use something like http://pdfmyurl.com/ download the pdf and then create a link to it for download.

Perfect – thanks.

Just wondering if there is any way I can remove the panel? Also, is there a way to remove the logo java script kind of jumping up/down when you scroll effect? I just want it to be fixed if possible…

Hi, yes remove “Drop Down Panel” from the bottom of the scripts.js. Leave

at the bottom. To remove the logo’s animation you will have to experiment with script “scrolling” also found in the scripts.js to get the effect that you like.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately doing that and removing all that code for the drop down panel messes up the whole template (the page is suddenly scrollable width-wise and the logo stays on top even when you scroll). Any other solution?

It shouldn’t do as i’ve tested it before i replied to you. You are only removing the script for the drop down this won’t create a horizontal scroll. If you could contact me through my profile page then I can take a look for you.
