Is it possible to change the size and color of the social media buttons? Thanks!

Hi! Yes, it is possible.

For the icon size add this style in your custom CSS

.social-item .icon a {
    font-size: 1em;

1em is equal to 16px, 1.125em to 18px, 0.875em to 14px

For the color use the following

.social-item a {
color: #404040;

Hello – I would like to display the categories widget in my right hand sidebar to only include one particular category. I used the options in visibility feature, but it is not working.

Here’s what I did: 1) In Widgets, I added Categories to the Primary Sidebar 2) Selected “Visibility” – checked “Display as dropdown” 3) Selected “Show” if: 4) Selected “Category” is “Recipes” 5) Saved

The widget does not display in my sidebar – what am I doing wrong?

Thank you! Gayle

Is there any subcategories in the “Recipes” category you wish to display?

No I just want all of the recipe posts to display in a dropdown menu.

Hello, I would like to remove the post icon from my menu navigation link entitled “Recipes”. I tried this custom CSS but it didn’t work:
.i .fa .fa-adjust

Can you tell me what css would work to do this?

Thanks! Gayle

Please, try the following

.top-bar-section ul li>a i.fa-adjust

Hello Revival support team – my header is cut off on the left and right in the mobile version of the website. Is it possible for you to take a look and see why this is happening? Thank you!


Please, add width: auto; to this style in your custom CSS

.header-logo {
    height: 300px;

It should be

.header-logo {
    height: 300px;
    width: auto;

Also you can use a separate mobile menu to avoid the header background zooming when the menu is expanded. For this purpose you should update the parent theme and create the new mobile menu with the name ‘mobile’.

Good morning~ can you tell me how to reduce the height of the drop-down menu that displays in the mobile version of the website? It is blocking some of the header image and I would like it to be a little smaller (in height) I tried adjusting the i-down-open-big and .toggle-topbar menu-icon selectors but this didn’t work. Any suggestions? Thank you for all of your help!!!

You can add the following style

.top-bar {
padding: 0 0.75em;

This will make the button narrower.

The button height if fixed, you may try this style to change the height

.top-bar {
    height: 25px;
.top-bar .toggle-topbar a {
    line-height: 25px;

This worked perfectly – thank you SO much!!

Good morning – when my screen is zoomed out to less than 75% my header image is cut off at the bottom – any idea why that might be happening and how to fix it? Thank you! Gayle

It seems to be an issue with height in pixels. When I replace 275px with 17.1875em it zooms perfectly. Please, try this.

That worked – I truly appreciate your help – not sure what I would do without it!! :-)

Thank you :)

quick question. I want to change my main front page blog posts to show the entire post, not just an excerpt. Can you tell me which php file I need to edit to change that option. Thanks

Please, download this file unzip it and replace /revival/content-blog.php file on your server. I’ll add this layout as an option in the next theme update.

Would you add the Snapchat icon as an option on the social media feed when in the customize prompt. I would like to add the link so my viewers can easily follow me.

Thank you

Hi! I would love to, but currently there is no Snapchat icon available in the web font sets we can use with this theme. If you can find the icon that is close enough to replace the original Snapchat icon here, I can add this option. Probably this could be a simple chat icon.

No luck locating a snapchat icon from fontello. Could one be created? also would you add the Soundcloud icon to the social media page when customizing. Fontello does have this logo. Thanks


WordPress won’t recognize the update, because ThemeForest themes are not published in the WordPress repository. The easiest way to update is to activate any other theme, remove Revival theme and upload the new version via WordPress admin dashboard

You can download the new theme version here Please unzip archive and use the installable file inside.

Worked perfect thanks! Just FYI while working in customizing some of the icons do not show up or show up broken. But when you save & publish icons are working on the site.

Do you have any examples of websites that are really pushing the boundaries of this template? I trying to get some ideas and still learning about Revival.

Thanks again for your help.

Thank you, I’ll check the issue with icons. Do you mean the icons for posts and categories?

Unfortunately I don’t have any website examples, I’m sorry. But if you have any questions, or wish to implement some features, please, let me know.

P. S. Thank you very much for you review! :)

Two questions. How can I set up my site so that when a user leaves a comment with email and I reply he will be sent my reply or be notified to my response? 2nd Google Analytics besides adding my unique ID to the Google Analytics plugin I downloaded do I need to add the unique ID to each page as well? Thanks

Thank you for the bug report, I’ll fix this within a few days.

The updated theme with the bug fix is available for download on ThemeForest.

I want to have a long image as the featured image on a standard post (just like this one –

Problem: the long image doesn’t work if i want to include that post in the carousel (it doesn’t resize to the size of the other images in the carousel)

how can i work around this so that i can use long images as the featured image AND include such posts in the carousel without having to use long images for all my posts? This is the main feature that i wanted when i purchased this theme

Please, make sure the original image is at least 710px in width, it this case it will be cropped properly for the carousel. In case there is no larger image available, you can try to install this plugin and then force regenerate thumbnails with this plugin

hello – i’ve read through all 6 pages of comments just to make sure this hasn’t been asked before so any assistance you can provide would be very helpful.

How can i easily manage the posts that are showing up in the carousel? I know with some wordpress themes, there is a page where i can add posts to the carousel and remove as well. With this theme, it seems each time i want to remove a post i have to go into the post, scroll down, then uncheck the box – doing this for each post i want to remove. then if i want to add, same thing. Surely, there must be an easier way. Can you help point me in the right direction?

Also, a secondary issue – i’m using a child theme (got that tip from previous comments :) and i’ve modified the size of the font in the headers in the carousel so that it looks nicer on mobile (code below). how do i modify it so that this change affects only mobile devices and not the desktop site?

.carousel .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h2 a, .carousel .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h5 a, .carousel-small .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h2 a, .carousel-small .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h5 a { font-size: 0.6em; color: #fff; -webkit-text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4); -moz-text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4); text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4); }


Thank you for the detailed description of the issues.

1. You can try to use this plugin

You should select the posts you wish to remove from the slider and set the value ‘0’ for the custom field with the name ‘show_in_slider’

Please see the screenshot

If you wish to add some posts to the slider, you can select this posts, and set the value ‘1’ for the ‘show_in_slider’ custom field.

2. You can use the media query

@media only screen and (max-width : 63.9375em) {

    .carousel .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h2 a, .carousel .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h5 a, .carousel-small .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h2 a, .carousel-small .media-holder.overlay.has-hover .is-hover h5 a { 
        font-size: 0.6em;
        color: #fff;
        -webkit-text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4);
        -moz-text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4); 
        text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.4); 


63.9375em is equal 1023px, the styles will apply to all screens less than 1024px.

Thank you!! I appreciate your quick response. I have another question about featured images in the carousel. When i use a really long image as the featured image and i choose to show the post in the carousel, the portion of the long image that is shown is usually the middle of the long image. What do I need to change in the code to make it such that it is the top (not the middle) of the long image that is displayed in the carousel? (the portion of the long images currently displayed in the carousel for some of my posts isn’t really the best).

Thanks for your support on this great theme!


I’m sorry for the delayed reply.

You can crop some images manually with this plugin

Select the image in media library and click on Thumbnails link when you hover the image. Please see the screenshot

Then select



image sized and crop them.

Hi ! Is there also an option of liking the posts?

Hi! Currently there is no such option.

Hey thanks a lot for the quick response! Is there any way I could do that? Is there a plugin? I want to buy this theme and I want like buttons on posts.

You can try to use this plugin

This is how it will look for single posts However the icon is not Retina compatible.

If you wish to add this button on the hompeage and archive pages, you need to copy inc/rating.php file into the /inc/ folder in the child theme, and add this code

<?php if( function_exists('dot_irecommendthis') ) dot_irecommendthis(); ?>

at the beginning of the file. In this case it will look this way for homepage and this way for single pages

Also you can try this plugin, its Retina-ready

You should add this code in the /inc/raging.php file
<?php echo do_shortcode( '[rs-likes]' ); ?>

Single post example Homepage example

You can adjust styles of this plugin manually, or enable the plugin styles

That’s great! Thank you so much!!

video type is not working.

I recently updated to the most recent version of Wordpress and that’s when i noticed this issue (might be unrelated though).

Essentially, the fields to input a video link for the “video” post format type and also the check box to choose whether a post shows in the carousel and whether drop caps are enabled have all gone missing from the edit page.

All of the posts on my site with the “video” type are no longer showing the video.


Hi! Most probably you’ve disabled Advanced Custom Fields PRO plugin. You should activate it.

Hi, live demo doesn’t work…

Thank you very much for letting me know. The issue is fixed.

im having problems with my slider, theres a huge blank space after there slider how can i fix it


You should regenerate thumbnails with this plugin This blank space is because one of your images in the slider is too high. When you regenerate thumbnails images in the slider will be cropped and resized.

Some of your images are smaller than recommended size for the slider (710px in width) and they will not be cropped properly. It’s better to install this plugin first and then regenerate all thumbnails.

Love the theme. Noticed that another person asked to get a child theme with the right side bar post. Can I get that as well? I was hoping to use it as my default. Thanks!!

Hi! There is no need in a child theme. You can set this option for all posts in Appearance > Customize > Layouts section, please see the screenshot

Wow thanks, I should have really figured that out myself. sorry :/

Hi themeous! This is probably super obvious but I can’t seem to figure it out. Is this theme compatible with woo commerce? It’s like the wrapper is off on my site :(

Hi! The theme is not compatible with WooCommerce, sorry. Usually there is no easy way to make the theme compatible with WooCommerce, because a lot of things should be considered. Please, read this section, this steps can help with a basic compatibility Try to copy and rename theme’s page.php to woocommerce.php and replace lines #15-36.
