Nice theme! Congratulations!


thanks Bedros!

wow… smooth and elegant design… good luck!


Greetings Designesia,

Can you explain me in few and objective words what’s the difference between “Regular” and “Extended” license?

Another question. If I have a PSD or CDR (photoshop and corel draw, respectivelly) design, can you implement that into a Drupal system?? How much would that costs?

Thank you for your time.


You can read about license explanation here

For convert PSD to Drupal is depending the complexity of its design, please contact through my profile.


Hi, how can I use the blog theme for other content types?

hi, i sent you guide, please check your email.

Hi, on a fresh insall of the profile i get this strict warning

Strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in include() (line 19 of sites/all/themes/spotlight/page.tpl.php).

<?php if (isset($main_menu)) : ?> <?php print(render(custom_menu_tree('main-menu')));?> <?php endif; ?>

Why is that?

Thanks very much,

Hi there. There is an IE8 jquery bug in the theme which is visible on your demo and my production website I’m working on with a client. I am e-mailing you separately about this, but just thought I would post here too so you can see I’ve bought your theme. Otherwise all is very good with it – thank you!

Hi thanks for your purchasing. I will look for that issue & fix it soon, thanks for your notice.

Hi, there! That one has a great look, congrats! We’ve found a little conflict (at least that’s what we believe after a long afternoon using it), for what it doesn’t work with Mediafront module (we wanted to insert Youtube and Vimeo videos in our website, but Vimeo didn’t worked well, so we used the Mediafront module, that works fine with other themes). There’s something curious, too: In preview mode all videos play well (Vimeo and Youtube, with Mediafront), but in normal mode they didn’t work. Have you noticed that problem before? What we should we try? Thanks in advance for your work.

Hi, thanks for your purchasing. You can try to set Text format by change Filtered HTML to be Full HTML. Let me know the results.

Yes, we used Full HTML all the time. Maybe not from the beginning. What do you suggest? Reset the theme, without all the plugins, and use Vimeo links in full html, to see what happens?

Actually with or without the plugins. just paste the vimeo embeded code into the Full HTML Area. for instance :
<iframe allowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/13639493" webkitallowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" width="500"></iframe>
<p><a href="http://vimeo.com/13639493">Dancing Pigeons - Ritalin</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/user4230856">Blink</a> on <a href="http://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>
or if you want to use it in the portfolio content type just add the video link in the embedded video section. see attachment. let me see if you have a a trouble with this.


I’ve this error message on top of each page, could i have some help ? thanks

Strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in include() (line 19 of /homepages/38/d264450567/htdocs/sites/all/themes/spotlight/page.tpl.php).


I tried to install Spotlight. Minimal and Standard options are installed with no problem but i can’t see the picture with the trees in the middle of the screen. Is there an option to make it visible?

Now, when i try the full package, the installation fails at the final step (when i put the user/pass of the site, local time, ...). The page displays a set of commands concerning the db (e.g. drop commands, alter tables, ...), and after loading the page there are certain errors shown. Is it a known issue?

Thank you


I installed the theme and it seems it’s working well in some browsers in computers, but it’s not working well in safari browser of my iPhone.

I got some screenshots of this problem to show you but It seems we are not able to attache them here.

Please give me the solutions for this problem.

If you do not understand what I’m talking about, please give me your e-mail address that I can send these screenshots so you can analyze it.


Hi, sorry for delay on reply. I still try find solutions for this issue. I will tell you once it done.


Sure. I’ll be waiting the solutions.

However, if you wouldn’t be able to fix this problem before this coming christmas, you can pay me back coz I’m suppose to built the site for my client with this theme before christmas.

I’m making my client waiting since I purchased.

Thanks and counting on you!

Hello. Please, just one question: how can I hide users avatars in comments? I’ve tried in Appearance menu but this option is disabled…


Unfortunately we don’t give it in a theme option. But you can edit file comment.tpl.php in sites/all/themes/spotlight/ directory. Just delete the line containing these pieces of codes below :

<?php if ($picture) : ?>
<div class="avatar">
  <?php print $picture ?>
<?php else : ?>
                    <img src="<?php print base_path()." />/images/avatar.jpg" class="avatar" alt=""/>
<?php endif;?>

hi Guys,

I installed the theme but I don;t have an editor nor the portfolio content type there… any thoughts?

here is the website: http://fempol.com/



Please make sure you choose ‘Full Install’ to prevent this issue.

it worked out very well! already love how it looks like. is it possible though in portfolio not to use an in-between screen with “see my project” and “click here to preview”? love that option but it doesn’t really work in that particular case. is there a way to click on a big circle and go the the project right away? greatly appreciated.


I’m planning on bying this theme, but I had one question. Is it possible to link a gallery on each subitem ?

For example, I would create a drop with different subitems. Let’s say, Ipad, Samsung, ....

Is the following possible ? When I click on iPad, a gallery with iPad pictures should be shown. When I click on Samsung, a gallery with Samsung pictures should be shown.

Can you confirm that this is possible ?

Thank you!


Hi, thanks for your interest. Sorry currently this feature not available. I will consider to make it on next update.

How do I change color on some parts on my text in the header message?

You can use html format for text like below:

Hi, We are professional web designer. <span class="black">We are</span> <span class="idcolor">Spotlight</span>


I have a strange problem in the gallery page. I currently have 7 items in there, but the problem is that the second row (which shows 3 items) aligns them to the right… Which means there is an empty cell at the beginning of that row. When I add more gallery items it becomes even worse as can be seen on this screenshot.

I looked at the source but I can’t find the problem…

Someone have any idea?

Thanks, Bob


You can insert code below in style.css file in theme folder (Spotlight > CSS). Insert code below in last line of style.css file:

.pf_gallery li {
    height: 240px;

Now you will have equal height for each gallery item.

Thanks, this worked perfectly!


the site is almost done and I’ve got a problem… the beuatiful circles disappeared and now they are all squares… any suggestions? http://www.fempol.com


Hi, can you tell me if this just disappeared now, or after you install the theme?


not when I intalled the theme. it installed correctly and was working perfectly until something happened couple of days ago.


Sorry for late reply. Since we have never got any report about this issue before, we will recommend to re-instal your theme to prevent this issue.


Tell us what you think!

We'd like to ask you a few questions to help improve ThemeForest.

Sure, take me to the survey
