Thank you SO much for your hard work on this theme. In my opinion it is the BEST magazine theme on Themeforest. I appreciate all the hard work that went into this. It has amazing features and I can’t wait to get started with it!


Hi HavenStarr, thank you for your comment

Just bought the theme but have one burning question: how can I get my homepage to look like your HOMEPAGE II demo with the photos and story teases all lined-up perfectly symmetrical? On my homepage, the photos and teasers don’t line up and it doesn’t look as “clean.”

Hi, all images in Homepage II are shown with Masonry layout. If you want them to be lined-up perfectly, you have to upload all images same size.

Is there any plan to incorporate infinite scroll?

Hi DistrictOne, we have no plans to make infinite scroll

I just bought the theme but I cannot install it, I go the error message:

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Hi nyagera, you have to unpack the downloaded package. There you’ll find Theme Files folder, this is where the,, theme is located

Hey ThemesIndep!

First of all : I really like your SimpleMag Theme. :) Great Job!

I’am thinking of buying that theme for a new web-magazine project, but I have some questions :

1. Is WPML for a multilingual site supported – or does the theme work without problems with this plugin?

2. Does the SimpleMag theme work with the WPSeo Plugin?

3. It looks like there is a lazy load function for pictures integrated, right?

4. Is there also a endless scrolling function for post and if yes – is also a pagination functionality available in this theme?

Thanks for your efforts…

Hi GodGivenArt, thank you for the comment

1. We have bot checked it with WPML. All strings are translatable, so i guess it can be compatible.

2. We have not checked WPSeo plugin, but it’s compatible with Yoast SEO.

3. There is no lazy load function, it’s just CSS animation.

4. Endless scrolling is not available, but there is a built in pagination.

is there a place to put ads?

Yes, there are two sections in Page Composer and two widgets. The new demo with ads will be available in couple of days.

Can’t wait to see the ad integration examples! :)


I setup the template quite easily. I however need a few adjustments. 1. I want to put an AdSense banner after the logo at the top of the page 2. I want to put another AdSense banner at the side bar (but its not wide enough, or the margin in the side bar is much) 3. I want to knock off the date on all posts, category posts, featured posts, etc.

I need you support ASAP

I have bought a few template here, and they have given me support to knock off dates. How do I knock off the margins inside the side bar?

I tried adding an ad below the man menu with the page composer, I didnt find it listed. How do I proceed

Hi tayooye, probably you have an old version of the theme. There is 1.3 available for download right now and 1.4 will be available in a few hours. What do you mean “knock off the margins”?

Hello, bought and love the theme!! I’m wondering how I can disable the sidebar in a single post?? For all blog posts I don’t want the sidebar.


Hi itsartdammit, the only option is to leave Magazine sidebar without any widgets, but it will also affect the sidebar in categories.

Hi there,

Beautiful theme.

Possible to have homage as sliders that are NOT recent posts? Also ability to make it full width as well?

Cheers, Patrick

Hi Patrick1717, thank you for the interest in our theme. The slider show posts which you choose and not the latest posts. On every add/edit post page there is a checkbox to add or remove the post to or from the slider. Full width slider is not supported.

Is the default slider direction able to be changed? (When it transitions by clicking the right arrow, it comes in from left to right, I expect it to follow the norm of right to left.

Hi KPMDESIGN, yes it will be updated in the next theme update.

hello everyone, I have a big problem, my page composer does not work, I have installed all the plugins and the demo content, if I click on add selection does not come out the drop down menu …. why?


ok, perfect, I checked in, where I send all the material?

Add new thread and post the details. Just check “Set as private reply” if you writing your login details.

ok, perfect.

Hi, I have Gravityform installed in one the pages, but the radio buttons are not displaying properly, I added the CSS into the main CSS file for the entire theme, but the radio buttons are still not showing up correctly.

Please help. Thank you.

Pre-sale question:

Is it possible to activate comments for pages (not only posts)?

Hi deus62, yes it’s possible. You just need to put comment_template(); in page.php

Thanks for the quick reply. :)

Pre-sale question 02 (quoted from an unanswered one above:

“Is the default slider direction able to be changed? (When it transitions by clicking the right arrow, it comes in from left to right, I expect it to follow the norm of right to left.”

That has also confused me majorly.

Hi deus62, yes it will be updated in the next theme update.

Thanks for the quick reply. Great to hear. Will buy.

Hello how can i have the templates use in the demo? demo.xml is not full version

Hi Cantonak, i’m sorry, but we can’t provide you the content from our Live Preview in demo.xml. Demo content you have installed have all main features.

thank you i fixed it, new question : how can i add social widget, like twitter post, or facebook likes ?

Hi Cantonak, you have to generate this widgets on Facebook and Twitter sites, copy the code and paste it in WordPress text widget. Make both widgets 275 pixels.

Hello, I bought your theme today and I want to add some welcome text to the usual homepage layout. But I see it’s not possible with the page composer.

Is there a way many with shortcodes or can I add this function to the page composer template?

Thanks for your efforts! GGA

Dear ThemesIndep,

i would like to buy your theme but i need to know if i can reduce size of pics in homepage and in single post ‘cause i haven’t big image. Maybe i can use page template for any single post?

Second question: can i move the sidebar in homepage, in the right, near the top post?

Thanks and Best Regards :)

Hi molipier, thank you for your interest in our theme.

1. You can choose to show the image above the content and not full width (as it shown in demo) from Theme Options. It’s possible for single, but not possible for homepage.

2. There is no option to move the sidebar to the top. Sidebar available only for Latest Posts section.

Are this theme compatible with Livefyre?

Livefyre comments have a WordPress plugin, so i think it’s compatible.
