Hi, i actually purchased your theme for the dark classic version but i can’t find the option in the demo. Any reason why this is happening and how do i fix that?
You can import the default demo like normal and simply change to Dark skin from Appearance > Theme Settings > Skins & Styling and select “Black Scheme” under Pre-defined skin. If you still need further assistance, please register and create a topic at our Support Forums.
Hello. I was looking into comments. Is it already available in this theme to have clickable background ad? I would need to use code from my ad network. Thank you.
This comment is currently being reviewed.
Hi! Is there an option to add social icon VK to top bar? If not can you provide it?
added: would be great if you add share functionality for this social network in your theme. I think clients from Russia will say thank you:)
It’s possible since v3.0: It’s possible using the Shortcode:
[social_icon link="link to your vk.com profile" title="VK" type="vk" /]

Is there an option to have a switch on the website for visitors to swap between Light and Dark version of the website?
Sorry this is not possible. Only one skin can be used at a time on the website.
How do I activate forum under category forum? I did all these steps mentioned:
You have to install and activate the bbPress plugin first. Forums are optional for obvious reasons. Once that’s done, configure your forums: http://theme-sphere.com/smart-mag/documentation/#bbpress
Once you have followed the steps in the relevant section, simply add a forums link to your WordPress menu and use setup bbPress categories and forums normally – there are no special settings needed, just use bbPress like you would with any other theme.

Argent Need Help Somebody Please…Would you check and tell me that Google ADSENSE codes can be detected by google on my website http://healthtipsinhindi.in Because In this theme, google is not able to detect AdSense code on my website. Are you able to detect AdSense codes in my website ?
If you have purchased SmartMag, create a topic at our Support Forums. If the theme was purchased by a colleague of yours, please ask them to do so.
I like your theme on desktop view. But can you make mobile theme like this one? http://m.baomoi.com . I like it thumbnail list on mobile view. If yes, I will buy the theme. Thanks you so much.
Sorry that’s not a layout available for the mobile layout. But there’s a similar layout that can be activated on both desktop and mobile – but not a different one for each.
Guys i have a real quick question, my friend purchased this theme almost 5 months ago and haven’t used it.
Now when he change the wordpress language to Persian (فارسی) which is a RTL language, website contents will be changed to RTL automatically but in a very messy way.
There’s no graphic and there’s nothing really only text direction will be changed to RTL and everything else will be removed, so apparently it is not supported.
Please guide me through how can i fix this and what’s the solution?
Please ask your friend to create a topic at our Support Forums and when creating the topic, provide a link to the live site.
Hi, I plan to purchase the theme, can you tell me is it possible to make in Classic Demo/ modern listing (theme-sphere.com/smart-mag/modern-listing-example/ ) that ad block in header (728*90) also sticky like the rest of navigation menu? To be clear – I want the ad block to be always shown when user scrolls down (to be sticky like navigation).
Sorry we don’t have this feature. If your ad network does allow sticky ads, alternatively you can add sticky ads to footer using a plugin like advanced floating content. Just a warning in case you wish to use this with Adsense – Google only allows this to their top publishers – normal publishers using sticky ads like these are often banned.
When will the software SmartMag be upgrated to be compatibe with WordPress 4.8.X ?
It’s fully compatible with latest v4.8.2. It has a small glitch on text widget with a solution here – this will be included in an maintenance update next week. For further support, please create a topic at our Support Forums.
When will they be compatible with Wordpress 4.8?
Yes, it’s fully compatible with latest v4.8.2. It has a small glitch on pagebuilder text widget with a solution at our forums – this will be included in an maintenance update in a few days
is the theme SSL compatible?
Yes it is SSL compatible. However, if you migrate to SSL from a previously non-SSL site, you will have to re-upload logo and any background image in Theme Settings (while accessing your wp-admin using https URL). For further support, please create a topic at our Support Forums.
Thats great many thanks
Could you please help me regarding the Featured Area?
I’ ve imported the “Tech Demo” and in the Homepage I’ ve selected “Use Latest Posts from Whole Site. However, it ignores the Posts I’ve created after the import, and displays only the posts from the Demo (dated 2015)
Then I tried to display only Posts Marked as “Featured Slider Post”. I marked 8 posts (some new, some from the demo) and the Featured Area doesn’ t display at all. The Homepage start with the first “News Focul Block”.
What do you advise? Thank you in advance.
The first thing would be to ensure no cache is in place – try clearing any cache you can find in WordPress admin. The “Use Latest Posts From Whole Site” option will display the latest posts if the settings are being applied to the homepage. If it’s still not working, please create a topic at our Support Forums and our support team will have a look at it.
I’m not sure how but I’ve lost the featured posts next to my slider and I can’t get them back. I’m working on a local backup of my site to prepare for the change of theme and I had three posts there earlier, but now there’s nothing. I’ve checked that the Right Side Posts Grid (Default Slider only) settings are not filtering the posts and I’m not using tags in my site. Is there anything you can recommend to help me get them back? All I’m left with is a blank space.
Perhaps the duplicate post prevention mechanism has been activated which would disable redisplaying the posts if already shown in the slider. You can check it from Theme Settings > Homepage and Blocks and ensure “No Duplicate Posts In Homepage Blocks?” is disabled. If you still need further assistance, please register and create a topic at our Support Forums.
Sorry that’s only for showing the feature on the demo and it’s a custom solution that’s not offered with the theme. Although, you can choose the Dark skin for your whole site from theme settings backend and set any color of your choice as the main color.
how can i order this custom feature?
Sorry but unfortunately, it’s a custom code for our own demos only and is not being sold.
Thanks for your interest.
Hello! Great Theme!! How can I divide posts into multiple pages using this theme?
It’s the default WordPress nextpage syntax you can use as shown here (note: it has to be in Text editor and not Visual). For further support, please create a topic at our Support Forums.
Hi, I still have problems with this theme with PHP 7.0.x
FILE: ... /plugins/bunyad-siteorigin-panels/bunyad-siteorigin-panels.php
FOUND 1 ERROR AFFECTING 1 LINE
884 | ERROR | preg_replace() – /e modifier is deprecated since PHP 5.5 and removed since PHP 7.0
FILE: ... /themes/smart-mag/lib/vendor/importer/wordpress-importer.php
FOUND 0 ERRORS AND 1 WARNING AFFECTING 1 LINE
71 | WARNING | Use of deprecated PHP4 style class constructor is not supported since PHP 7.
I don’t have any other error or warning messages related to PHP 7.0.x operation check, so pls. check and fix it, thank you!
These are false positives by the compatibility detector and these won’t cause issues with real usage. We’re running our own demos on PHP 7.0.x.
For example, the error on posts.php and Bunyad SiteOrigin Panels is a false positive (it is a bug in the compatibility checker library). It’s detecting that because there’s a ‘e’ that appears in the regex – however, the /e flag is not used so it is compatible.
If you’re experiencing any issues, they’re likely to be from a plugin but we can check it for you. For further support, please create a topic at our Support Forums.
This theme was created quite awhile ago now… not saying that is bad – of the 100’s of themes I have used, many so called “Premium” bestsellers, this is still the easiest to work with and never fails – and it looks good.
That said, I intend to buy a new license for another project and I was wondering if Themesphere plans to keep updating SmartMag to keep it working with WP version updates for a few more years to come? (considering you have released a new theme and likely more in the works).
I could go with your newer themes, but SmartMag is easy and I like the look, so I want to keep it for at least a few more years… and know it will be updated.
Thank you for all the good words and we’re glad you have been using SmartMag for so long.
We’re still maintaining SmartMag and a major feature update is due at New Year – apart from a new maintenance updates before that. SmartMag continues to be our flagship theme so it will be developed and improved for years to come.
Good to hear… just bought another license. Thank you
Too many of the bestselling themes (not yours) are marketed as the do all, easy to setup and customize solution (NOT). As a developer with php and css experience, most are not easy to modify and contain a ton of bloatware and features that most people will never use. In fact, they can be downright confusing for beginners – and frustrating for those used to toying with css etc. SmartMag has the cleanest css of all the themes I have used… and a very intuitive theme settings admin area.
Looking forward to new themes from you guys.
A nice addon for SmartMag would be the addition of post views and like/dislike options (with placement options) – and then display on a homepage block based on these 2 criteria (one or the other). As well as a few more options for video insertion such as removal of YouTube elements like related videos, video title, annotations and so on. I use EmbedPlus for this right now, but it would be great to have it built into SmartMag (or as a video addon for a small fee).
Take it one step further as a addon and you could include share and follow buttons overlayed on images and videos (video the more important one). For video, settings like – trigger social share buttons at X time in video, or percentage watch etc. Just social share, not ads etc as that I believe is against YouTube’s TOS – not sure about social share their TOS.
I’ve selected Post Cover as the layout for a few of my posts, but the featured image I’d like to use for it doesnt show up? I can see the caption of the image, the white to black filter that goes over it but the image itself doesn’t appear. I’ve tried it on multipe posts and it doesn’t work on that specific layout.
There’s likely to be conflict with a plugin. Try deactivating all plugins except the Bunyad and Sphere Core plugins. Further, please create a topic at our Support Forums so our tech team can check your site.
I have a problem with the trending ticker.
I have the website on cloudflare and the website uses w3 total cache.
The trending ticker is enabled and the data that gets are old (from June-July) I saw the query that runs the mysql and seems fine. The query gets the latest data but the results are the old. I have removed all cache (cloudflare and w3 total cache) but the problem is the same.
I have another problem with saving the theme options. Every time i try to save the options that shows me an error 403.
It’s most likely to be a cache issue. The theme uses a native WordPress query to get the latest posts. For further support, please create a topic at our Support Forums.
