Hi there,

I just want to do a simple procedure and change the size of the font and the spacing of the menu section for my website. Can you point me in the right direction as having no luck finding this out – tried looking through the comments here to see if anyone else had asked and also the info with the downloaded zip file but still no joy…. thanks.

Hey kiwirach!

Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.sf-menu a {
    font-size: 14px;
    padding-left: 30px;
    padding-right: 30px;

#topnavi {
    height: 44px;

Change font-size to whatever you like . Change padding (=spacing to next menu item) to whatever you like . Adjust navi height.


Hi Gerda, Would you be able to help me figure out how to setup the top navi dropdown menu to display in several columns? My problem is that under one of my categories, there are so many pages under that its difficult to get to the lower selections. If i could set it up so that there would be a max of say 10 pages directly under, then choices 11-20 would be to the right and 21-30 to the right of those, or something like that. Im told CSS can do this but Im unsure how to create this. Thank you (again)!!

Hey Tracey!

I don’t think it’s possible the way you described it. But you could display the categories as follows: 1, 2, 3 in the first row, 4, 5, 6 in the next and so on.

If you want to do this, the code would be as follows (simply put into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS):

.sf-menu ul {
    width: 30em;

.sf-menu ul li {
    width: 32.7%;


1. I’m having troubles inserting the soundcloud codes into the audio page. It seems it won’t accept any code including Iframes in any of the pages or post!! every attempt to paste codes it will redirect me to the post list page!! How can I fix that?

2. any chances of adding more plugins to the template. I don’t find the option to add any other.

Hey! I replied to the mail you sent me.

Hi red_sun, I and my client are happy with your website, cudos for that. Now I can not find a way to center the thumbnail image for the video, by default seems to be aligned to the top left? how can I change that? also I am using the post template as News, and while I set it up a full wide still the page is crop to 2/3 tried to changed on the css stylesheet but it just push the images and text to the bottom. thank you for your patience . fco.

Hey fco3d.. thanks for your purchase! I am glad your client and you are happy with the theme :)

1. Soundboard creates the thumbnails automatically in the proper size. Make sure though, that your video preview images have a minimum size of 220×140px.

2. Put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.blog .grid_9 {
    width: 940px;

.blog .entry {
    width: 760px;


Hi red_sun,

For what time of period are you supporting this theme? Can I as an example two years ahead with this theme?

Kind regards, Sander.

Hey Sander.. thanks for your interest in Soundboard.

Yeah, I will be supporting this theme for the next couple years.


Hey guys,

I get the message “Your theme does not declare WooCommerce support – if you encounter layout issues please read our integration guide or choose a WooCommerce theme :)” when I installed WooCommerce… how can I make this work? You claim it is compatible!?

kind regards

Hey agry.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard!

When you start using WooCommerce, does it display properly? If yes, you can simply dismiss this message. If it does not display like on the Soundboard demo page , please check your Soundboard version number in Appearance > Themes, next to the Soundboard logo. Make sure you are using at least version 3.03. The latest version is 3.05.


You can make the homepage display the featured images in Theme Options > Home > Preview Image for news (this option is available since Soundboard version 1.05)

I saw this on a comment above, I have the latest version and do not see this option? Maybe I missed something?

And thank you for being so active in helping with problems, it is much appreciated.

Using WP v 3.5.1, Soundboard v 1.0

Can you please try to redownload Soundboard in the Downloads tab? If you keep getting the old version, get in touch via the user contact form on my profile page.

On our about us page we have tabs for each member of our band personal short biogs but the formatting of them are messed up and I’m not sure why. See here:

Hey lochie.. looks like the mailchimp plugin is causing this formatting.

Hello, my name is Bozhidar. I maintain a simple wordpress site for a blind DJ Pancho, who purchased the soundboard theme. So far, so good. But when we download and install the latest theme – in WP admin panel it reports version 1.0. I also see the soundboard.xml file and there was the same 1.0 version. So we stuck on that and we are unable to update to 3.05 recent version (ref from the Change log).

Can you explain us how to download the latest version? The only way we found here is to download it from the Download section (file name – themeforest-2558532-soundboard…), but this method does not work for us. Thanks in advance! This is Really great theme!

Hey Bozhidar, I just replied to your email!

Hello! Wondering if there’s a way to have the post headlines that appear on the homepage under “News” to show the entire post, instead of only a few lines of text… Thanks!!

Hey spacechum!

In the file template-home.php, line 82 and 90 , replace

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>


<?php global $more; $more = 0; ?>
<?php the_content(' read more…'); ?>

(you can also change the text “read more…” to something else) And then you could manually insert the “read more” link with the help of the insert more tag:


Hi, thanks for this wonderfull template. It seems like I have a javascript bug (or something?) The slider isn’t working and there’s always a loading bar at the bottom.

Thanks for the solution!


Hey Raven-Graphy! The link you sent me… that site is not using the Soundboard template!

Sorry, my fault, wrong theme :-). I will drink some more coffee!

Hi Gerda, Just wondering if it’s possible to put a youtube/vimeo video on the slider?

I’m sorry, but the slider does not support videos…

Hello I have bought this great theme. However, I have an issue where I only want one category to show on the home page.. Is their a way to do this.. For example – I want the home page static so I have added a couple of posts. However the BLOG is seperate and I do not want this on the home page. Please help Thanks

Hey infofrog.. please check out the answer that pancho_karamanski posted here in the comment section for you!

Hey guys,

I wanted to ask before purchasing your template, if adminte plugins to translate to many languages??, if you have a problem or failure. I advise on a type qtranslate plugin?

thank you very much.

Hey terreta82.. thanks for your interest in Soundboard.

This theme is translation ready and you shouldn’t run into any problems.


@infofrog One way to do that is by modifying one particular file from the theme: Home Page Template (template-home.php)

change this lines of code:
$query = new WP_Query();
              $post_number = of_get_option('gg_headlines');
        $query->query('posts_per_page=' . $post_number);
to this lines of code:
$post_number = of_get_option('gg_headlines');
$args = array(
'cat' => 4,
'posts_per_page=' => $post_number);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

You need to change the number 4 for cat with the actual category ID of the category that you only want to show. You can see the cat ID by just visiting the particular category link and the ID is at the end of the link in the address bar of your browser :)

@red_sun (author) Please verify if this solution is good enough for answer. I just want to help for this perfect theme and the best support that I have ever seen :)

BTW Thank you very much – I re-download the theme and now the reported version in style.css is 3.05!

Thank you!! :) Yeah that code works.

I think I am going to open an actual support forum soon so that people can talk to each other and help each other out….

Hey Red_Sun

I bought this template and i love it but the problem is when I installed it in wordpress Im having a hard time trying to design the homepage below the slider. Everytime I add content to the other pages it shows up on the homepage. If you go to our website you can see that I added a calendar that is now on the front page. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Thanks so much :)

Hey ariseyouthministry.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard! I’m glad you like it :)

Are you maybe using any plugin that is causing this? Please try to deactivate ALL plugins to see if that solves the problem. If this doesn’t help, send me a link and login info via the user contact form on my profile page and I’ll take a closer look.


LOVE this theme. This is my first adventure into wordpress (bye bye static html admin heavy website!)

How do you make the page names appear as a menu on the TOP navbar (above the slider) – I cannot find an option to display. Or is there a widget i missing ? the navbar is currently blank…

Hey northerncreative.. thanks for your purchase! I’m glad you enjoy working with Soundboard :)

You can find the instructions on how to create the menu (along with detailed instructions on how to set up your site) in the documentation:

Does that help?


My twitter feed has suddenly disappeared from my frontpage. Has been working perfectly until now. Any ideas? Nothing has been changed on the twitter account. The feed simply will not appear. (


Hey Sky!

Twitter made some major changes to it’s API. The new API (1.1) only works with authentication of each user. This is why the Soundboard twitter widget stopped working and I am going to remove it in the next update. Please use this plugin instead:

In order for the feed to display nicely, you can put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.really_simple_twitter_widget li {
    margin-bottom: 20px;

Worked perfectly. I think your widget looked better! ;)

Thanks so much for your help.

Hey guys! Thanks so much for this theme, really nice!

I have one question though, is it possible to manually set a specific page as homepage. For example, can I use my upcoming gigs page as homepage? If so, how can I do that?

Hey Impactlive!

For theme support please log into the account that you’ve used to purchase Soundboard before posting a comment or sending a message so that I can verify you as a valid customer. Thanks!


I am reasonably new to wordpress so please bear with me on this one. I have set up a site for a client using soundboard (which is aweosme by the way). I have set the news widget to be visable in the sidebar but wondered whether it is possible to edit the CSS of the widget? The reason I ask is becuase I am looking to remove the + X days ago + 0 comments ++ that is before the post.


UPDATE – Forget this I have found what I’m looking for! THANKS!!!

UPDATE AGAIN – Spoke to soon…...Please can you help?

Hey emilywilsonmusic.. thanks for purchasing Soundboard, I’m glad you like it!

Simply put the following code into Theme Options > General > Custom CSS:

.gg_news_widget .post-info {
    display: none;
