Hi there, I need help with designing my homepage like newspaper or masonry, please guide. I tried documentation but I get confused at times. Thanks

it has been a very long time since there were any updates, this topic was abandoned? Update it, or you’ll get errors wp-less/vendor/oyejorge/less.php/lib/Less/Visitor/toCSS.php on line 113

Hi any update planned for this theme?

Is it possible show a logo at the top of the mobile version of the site? (ie when it is viewed on a mobile screen, it shows a logo at the top of the home page?)

Hello, is there a mail ID, I can contact you on?

Hi, is the theme compatible with WP 5.4?

hi, pre-purchase question, can I use your theme also with google Adsense


Yes, you can use any Ad widget or JS code.

Kind Regards


The google map page on the contact page is nor working anymore, it seems that there is no API key, but the section to put the API key per your documentation (Advanced settings area) has disappeared as well. It makes a very ugly message on my website, you can see it here http://kalianey.com/contact/

I fix it’s a bug on your part, so any help fixing it would be very much appreciated it! Best, Kalianey

I updated to the latest version and the bug seems fixed, thank you very much.

But it its not compatible with essential grid anymore???? All my projects are shown through this plugin…

Hi Kalianey,

You can try to disable themes ajax navigation in Customizer > General > Load pages with ajax.

Kind Regards

Hi, is it possible to embed the google fonts somehow? In connection with the GDPR in Europe it is nice to have. Cheers, Tobias

Hello, but the plugins have nothing to do with envato. Why should they link on envatos website?

We’ve just checked your site. It seems that the whole blog is embedded as an iframe. The Envato requests are connected to the ‘full-screen-preview’ which seems to be used for the embedding of the blog into your site.

This request is not coming from WordPress but from the main site.

You should contact the developer that has embedded the blog as an iframe and let him know about the issue.

Kind Regards

Hi, thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience. The problem is solved.

Hi, I’m trying to get the homepage slider to work on my homepage, but it’s not working. I’ve followed all of the directions. I’ve sent an email, but it seems you’re more reponsive on here. Is there something I’m missing? I’ve listed the category I want….also in the Post/blog settings, I have the Slider Overlay picked… Please, help – i’ve emailed your support email too. Really hoping to get this sorted in the next 12 hours.

Hi there, is it possible to make the left menu about 1 px width or invisible via custom CSS especialy on mobile version? I embedded the site via iframe and the menu I need is already there.

Thanks a lot, Tobias


Sure, try using this CSS:

header#header {
    display: none;

Kind Regards

Great, thank you for fast answer. It works!!


I have a question about the compatibility with the new editor. Will the theme be update for the compatibility with WordPress 5 ?



Hello Clément,

WordPress can be safely updated to version 5.0. Theme will continue working the same way it did before. Theme’s specific editor formats/elements/shortcodes will still be available in the WordPress Classic block.

New block elements that come with WordPress 5.0 will not be altered by the theme.

Kind Regards

Hi, great template! There are often gaps between posts in masonry-style, especially, when you have a post in medium-size. Is it possible to fix it? Cheers, Tobias

Hi Tobias,

Post are ordered chronologically, and Masonry tries to pack them nicely, but it will not break their order. You can try changing the ordering a bit to make the larger items fit tightly.


Hi, is it possible to buy this template 2 times, install it for 2 companys, but use the same blogcontent in the middle? If not, how much would it be to program that? Cheers, Tobias

Hello Tobias,

From the theme licensing standpoint that would be correct approach – two licenses for two different domains.

The question about single content origin for multiple sites is a bit more complex and is not having much to do with the theme you are using. You could try hooking both sites to the same database and add manual overrides in the theme files where needed (i.e. hard-code different logo). But all this will be very much guided by the exact project specifications you have.

Unfortunately, we are currently not available for hire.

Cheers and good luck

Hi, thank you

Hey guys,

Trying to figure out the blows and whistles of this theme. Currently, I can’t seem to be able to figure out how to make the “Continue Reading” phrase into a button. I can’t even locate where it CAN be changed. Could you help me out here please? :)


Hey there,

If you wish to alter the styling, you could do that via CSS. Here’s the example of changing the link into regular button:

.read-more--continue {
    -webkit-border-radius: 3px;
    border-radius: 3px;
    font-family: "Montserrat", sans-serif;
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 16px;
    line-height: 1em;
    display: inline-block;
    white-space: nowrap;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;
    overflow: hidden;
    max-width: 100%;
    padding: 0 15px;
    background: none;
    font-size: 14px;
    background: #ff4d4d;
    color: #ffffff;
    height: 36px;
    line-height: 36px;
    padding: 0 25px;
    display: table;
    margin: auto;

.read-more--continue:hover {
    background: #3f3f53;
    color: #ffffff;

Thanks, guys! It worked. Will be back with more questions. Have a good week.

I believe I will purchase this wonderful theme. Can you please tell me if I can display archive items (tags/categories) in Masonry format? Thank you.


Yes, you can choose blog layout for archives as well.


Thank you – I will follow through later today. You do nice work.

How to set the featured post image with the same height and width so that the front page can display tidy? My home page have 3 featured images on front page, currently only one featured image show in full size, the other 2 were not, make the front page not good looking….

Please kindly advise, my page : https://asiawpa.com/ Many Thanks~


It seems that your images should be regenerated per Sleek’s presets: http://library.korra.io/sleek/documentation/#17 Kind Regards

Hi, the comments not loaded in the post/page admin back-end. is this a bug? http://manatree.com/Screenshot_16.jpg

I try switch to other themes and it loaded properly. only in sleek themes the comment not loaded. Thank you.


Generally, Admin area should not be affected by the theme, but indeed it is weird that you experience this only when Sleek is active.

Could you check for any javascript errors on that page?

Use Chrome Browser.
If you are on windows – press CTRL + SHIFT + J.
If you are on mac – press CMD + ALT + J.
Console will open. Reload page and see if something happened in console, and paste the message/screenshot.


Hi! Please help. I am photographer and image quality is very important to me. But when I download my photos at my site, all images change their size from 1200px to 1075px.

Hello Nikita,

In many cases WordPress and/or Sleek will display appropriately sized images.

Theme’s content width is 1075px, that’s why the images are resized to that size.

We don’t know where exactly do you wish to change the image sizes, but this code will give an overall change to image sizes from 1075px to 1200px. Paste it in your child-theme’s functions.php file, and after that Regenerate Thumbnails

add_action('after_setup_theme', 'change_image_size', 11);

function change_image_size() {

    add_image_size('fit', 1200);
    add_image_size('l', 1200, 675);
    add_image_size('square-l', 1200, 900);

Kind Regards

Pre-Sales Question : I need to insert adsense ads to infinite scrool. You know ads have to be like a native post. Especially for Masonry style, for every 5 blog post i want to insert 1 adsense ad and it continue for next 5 post and 1 ad…

Is there a solution you already have ?

I already read most of comments but i couldn’t find answers for my question. If i missed that sorry about it.


Unfortunately, we do not have that feature implemented on the Sleek theme. Fortunately, we do have a solution that is easily applicable.

If you know your way around code – edit the loop.php file (preferably within child theme) and find the line:

    <?php get_template_part( 'loop_item', $display_style ); ?>

Immediately after this line, add your ads like this (every 5 posts):

        if( $i % 5 == 0 ){
            echo '<article class="post">';
            echo '<div class="post__inwrap">';
                // YOUR AD GOES HERE
            echo '</div>';
            echo '</article>';

If you happen to purchase the theme and go down this route – feel free to contact us if you need some help.
