Hello install the template and when I install the latest version of WooCommerce submenu disappears????

Hi cubo187,

We’re running Sonata with latest version of WooCommerce without errors. Could you please open a ticket at https://withemes.ticksy.com/ with your login credentials? We’ll help you to inspect the problem.




We are using the Sonata Theme and have opted to make our posts the homepage, however we can’t seem to find where to customize the homepage title once we do this. Right now it just says Blog> http://bestofsonoma.us/

We want to customize that with an actual title instead of just “Blog”. Can you please direct us to where we can do this?

Thank you so much!

Hi abramarketing,

Thank you for purchasing my item. The easiest way to modify blog title is opening /sonata/index.php file and edit this line:

$title = __('Blog','wi');


$title = __('Your desired name','wi');

Hope this helps,


Perfect, thank you so much!!

You’re welcome :)

Hello! I’m so happy about the theme.

Just I wanted to know if it’s possible to change the language of PREVIOUS PROJECT or NEXT PROJECT on the porfolio pages, to translate to spanish.

Thank You very much

Hello! I’m loving this theme, quick question.

I have a set of buttons on the front page that are automatically set to align left, is there a way to align a group of buttons centered? When I put the alignment within the generated code, the buttons don’t center together rather they stack and centered on top of each other.

I want the buttons to be centered, so when the screen is smaller or larger (responsive) the buttons are always centered.

Hi Spaztickle,

Please try this way: Put button shortcodes adjacently like this:

[button]Button 1[/button] [button]Button 2[/button]

And do not enter a new line after a shortcode.

If this doesn’t work, let show me the site I’ll take a look help you further.

Show Toolbar when viewing site option is not checked but the toolbar still shows. I’ve tried several plugins to hide it and it still shows. Please advise.

Hi mrsplat06,

If you were talking about the topbar (with callout and social icons), you can hide it in Theme Options > Topbar

If you were talking about the admin bar, you can use this plugin.

Hope this helps,

The entire Sidebar has stopped working. None of the widgets work. No new plugins installed/activated. I need resolved ASAP for launch.

Hi mrsplat06,

Please check your ticket here.

Hi Cuong! I saw the ticket. The sidebar and widgets display; however, the widgets and links in the sidebar do NOT work. None of the links are clickable. Please advise.

Hi mrsplat06,

I’ve fixed your site by some custom CSS. Your links weren’t clickable because of CSS of your plugins.

You can see custom css at Theme Options > General > Custom CSS

There is an update for Revolution Slider. There team says it needs to be updated through the theme since it was included. Currently, video is not working for one of my sliders. How do I get Revolution Slider updated for my site?

I’m getting fail message due to the them already being installed. Please advise.

Loaded the files via FTP and don’t see a change. Please advise.

Hi mrsplat06,

I see you’re running Sonata 1.5, that’s why RevSlider is still old version. However, I’ve helped you to install RevSlider v5.4.6.4 on your site.

The Instagram icon in the footer is deprecating the URL and causing it to go to an incorrect page. It does not match the URL in the header. We need this corrected.

Got it fixed.

We have the date set for March 8th for the countdown but it’s showing up wrong on homepage. Code used below:

[countdown time=”2018-3-8” /]

Received a ticket message that something needed to be fixed in the code 5 days ago.

When can we expect an update? This is a major part of our site.

Hi mrsplat06,

Issue fixed. We also fixed it in the developing version and will be fixed in the next update.


howdy alot of the pages on your live demo including the the shortcodes pages is popping up with “Error establishing a database connection”

would like to see the shortcode list along with the icon list

Thank you greenfan320 for your notice. I’ve restart database system and those pages are available now.

Thank you once again!

The demo site is still broken.

Hi adamsoleymani,

Thank you for your notice. We’ve migrated demo site to a better hosting. The demo site is now live & stable.

Kind Regards, Cuong Tran

Please provide a link to the demo site or shortcode documentation. The list is no longer accessible. We need to make some updates. Thanks!

Hi mrsplat06,

Sorry for this. The demo site is now live.

Hello, we are needing to upgrade our website’s PHP version to 7.3. Can you advise if the Sonata theme will support this (and the updated WP version 5.02?) Many thanks!

Hi laurena86,

I’m running Sonata on PHP v7 & WP v5.0.2 without any problem. Feel free to upgrade your site!

Kind Regards, Cuong Tran

Hi. Are you gonna update theme somewhen? I use it for 3 websites. Thanks

Hi gbel25,

We update Sonata not very often but let me know if you have any issue while using the item, we’re ready to fix.

Kind Regards, Cuong Tran
