Hi. Hope you might be able to help. I recently bought and installed Skylab which has helped me create a reasonable site. (www.whitenuptials.co.uk) When I released the site live the website worked well on the iphone. However, after about a month the menu navigation on the iphone has disappeared and no longer works. I have updated and checked everything I can but still cannot get the menu to work on the iphone/ipad etc. Could you shed any advice? Thank you. Cliff.

Thank you for your reply however it doesn’t seem to address my issue. If you look at the website (www.whitenuptials.co.uk) on an iphone you will on the home page have the menu options as intended. However, if you select any other page within the site the navigation menu is not displayed. In the Appearance / Menu I have one menu assigned to the two locations Primary and Mobile. I assume I am doing something wrong but just don’t know what. Please any advice would be welcomed or a link to any manual on the navigation setup which may help me resolve this. Thanks.

Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:

#mega-menu-dropdown {
color: #fff;

Thanks, that worked perfectly. Thanks.

Hello, my site (portfolio list) looks good on a macbook pro 15” retina, but when view in a 13” or 11” macbook air, all the text alignment are messed up. (all shifts upwards and cover the thumbnail above).

Is there a fix for this?

Thank you very much.


I make the title closer which fix the problem in a way. but when I size the browser to around 650 in height, the align is still messed up. Is there a way to make the text (title and excerpt) inside each thumbnail? thank you very much.

I fixed the problem by taking away the animation during mouseover and messing about with the padding in Style.css. But I hope to have a solution with the mouse over animation and all the text fits in the thumbnail box. Please help. Thank you very much for your time.

Hi, can you email a screenshot?

Hi there,

I have another query, how do I change the colour of the background behind the portfolio not the background of pages but when all the portfolio images are showing in 3 or 4 columns.

Currently it is black.

Thank you

Hi, navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > Style and add these lines of code to custom CSS block:

.page-template-page-portfolio-php {
background-color: #fff;


I get a blank page when I import the xml demo data

It’s working now

I have a question regarding the portfolio images format

How can I set the images in “portrait” in stead of in “landscape” format: http://demo.megathe.me/skylab/portfolio-fixed-width/

Hi, sorry, what you have described isn’t available with the theme.

Hi. First of all, thank you for creating such an awesome theme. Now, I’m having a little issue with uploading an animated .gif to one of my portfolio pages. I’ve added it to the media library and it plays correctly, but won’t upload to the gallery (it’s an images gallery with slide).

I don’t think there’s a problem with animated gifs in general, as I have an animated logo on the sidebar menu, but I don’t know why I can’t upload it to the gallery.

The concrete page is http://sozeartwork.com/portfolio/soze/ where I have 3 static .jpeg images, by the way.

I guess it’s not a big deal, but it seems to be a problem since I can’t understad what I’m doing wrong, so I hope you can help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, please email us your URL, username and password for your site via our profile page and we will take a look.

Thank you for your concern and don’t get me wrong, but I have the rule of not providing my site user and pass to any third person.

The thing is that animated gifs seem not to be allowed for portfolio galleries. Maybe that’s just it, but isn’t there any other way of solving it, apart from giving you my data?

Thanks again. I know it can be really stressing to answer tons of commentaries everyday. Cheers!

Hi, I did test and confirm that gif animated images work find on single portfolio default slider page.


There’s an issue with columns.

I made 3 column text, in a page set to full width, however the 3 columns aren’t aligning next to each other.

See it here: http://tinyurl.com/pmf6q3b

Hi, you must end each set of columns with a last=”true” option such as one_half last=”true”.


I have a couple of pre-purchase questions.

1. Can I make the sidebar “un-sticky” so it doesn’t stay in place when a visitor scrolls down the page?

2. Is it possible for me to make the logo wider than the sidebar? So the sidebar will have a fixed width, but the logo can be wider (like 500px).

3. Can I make multiple portfolios to show on different pages?

4. Can I show only a certain portfolio category (for example, only portfolio items with the category “Photography”)?

Thank you!


Hello, sorry, what you have described isn’t available with the theme.

Okay, thank you for the answer MegaTheme.


There’s an issue with the full width player.

It doesn’t appear until I click the album page. When I leave the album page, it disappears again. In the player options it is set to “every page”.

Please ignore this message. I’m on the wrong thread.

This is the second time my comment disappeared. Am I being deleted for some reason?

Anyway, when I turn an iphone horizontal with the super smooth slider, the image is too small and the thumbnails are too big. Actually, the thumbnails are slightly bigger than the main image. Any fix for this?

I Got it. No need to respond. Thanks.

When I try to Add Gallery Images or Portfolio Gallery Images, the lightbox appears with all my images. After selecting one and clicking the “Add to Gallery” button, the lightbox closes but no images are added.

What could be wrong?

Hi, your image cropping doesn’t work. Please contact your hosting company to help you with.

Hi.everything just work’s perfect.Kudos for the awesome theme ! The only thing that I’m heaving trouble with is :

I the original skypab theme : / Pages / About (Studio) When I want to make the 3’rd column it just jumps to the next line.

[one_third] This is my text here [/one_third]

An example on the skylab page : Ben Pham | Tish Evangelista is in the first line … (that’s ok.)

The problem is : Rishi Shourie and Ollie Ralph is in the second line Matt Jensen | Matt Mangham in the third line.

I have just 2 thing’s instead of 3 ?

Could you tell me please what fonts did you use : in the menu, body-text, headlines etc etc. Thank you !!! Great theme !!!

Hi, thank you for the purchasing!

  1. Please email us your URL and we will take a look.
  2. The fonts are PT Sans and Titillium Web.

This is great theme and thank you so much for great work.

I use this theme for my main photo studio website and it is almost finished. I am using Gallery pages exclusively, since it is the best to show the images.


I want to put Gallery Category as a menu item. For example, I have “featured” as a category in Gallery, and I want to put this category in the menu. How can I do that?

I have looked at menu, and it has ‘Category’ for post, ‘Portfolio Category’ for portfolio, but I did not see the ‘Gallery Category’. Is this a bug?

BTW, my website is “studiojk.com/wedding/”

Thank you so much in advance.

Will this be in the future release? If not, how can I hire you to make this modification for me?

  1. No, won’t.
  2. Sorry we aren’t available for freelance work.

Thanks, D_dante. I have try that and you have category for post(blog) and portfolio has category, but not gallery. That is the reason that I ask MegaTheme to clarify. From his responses, he is not taking any suggestions or feature requests from anyone.


when you’re in the menu page ….click SCREEN OPTIONS .Appears at the top of the page ;)

Great theme !

Hello – working for a client of mine with your theme. (They purchased it). We would like to use share buttons on the gallery pages, but it isn’t possible. I think somethings needs to change on the content-gallery.php for instance? Can you give a tip? Tnx! Best regards, Robbert

Hello, yes you will need to place your code in content-gallery.php.

well. tnx that’s really really helpful :(

Hello, I’d like to change the current link http://www.bm-photo.ch/portfolios-list/

To bm-photo.ch/portfolio/

But when I get rid of the -list the portfolio page (masonry without margins disappears… ) How can I do it right ?

Many thanks


Hi, navigate to Settings > Permalinks and click “Save Changes” button.

OK, there’s just a conflict… I can use portfolios to display the pages correctly, but not portfolio. Thanks for the tip.

Hello Is it possible to add thumbnail navigation images to Full width slider like it super smooth slider ?

Hello, it may well be possible with some modification but it’s not something which is available out of the box I’m afraid.

tnx for replay , can you just tell me which files i should edit if i make modification by myself. I looked around about one day but could find right file to edit.

Hi, we would suggest to hire a developer to help you with this modification.

Hi! I would like to know what font you used in the preview for “About” pages. Thanks in advance!

Hi, the font is PT Sans.
