Hi, Thanks a lot for the free version. But how I can change the colour of tegs on the homepage? What should I write in the css? I really need different colours for each category. Please, help. I tried to search it in css but failed.

There is no free version of this theme…

But it was 1 or 2 years ago. I downloaded it. I still need your answer.

Oh, I see what you mean…you downloaded the theme while it was the free file of the month. I just wanted to make sure because there are a lot of themes with the same name and I can’t give you a correct answer if you are using a different theme ;)

For the category colors it’s very easy see here: https://wpexplorer-themes.com/status/docs/adding-category-colors/ – you don’t need any custom css.

Hi Team,

First of all, really nice work guys. This theme is just amazing.

Coming to my question, Whenever I am trying to add a widget to the footer area, then there is only 1 option i.e. ‘Footer 1’

So basically I need to add 4 columns but the other three columns are not accessible.

Also, Current Settings of my footer are as follows,

General Theme Settings > Footer > Footer Widget Columns and choose 4, then the width of ‘Footer 1’ becomes 25% of view-port.

But how do I add widgets to the remaining three columns?

Please suggest a work around this issue.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi there,

After you select 4 columns you need to either refresh the customizer so that you can see all 4 widget areas in the Customizer or go to Appearance > Widgets to see them there. The theme only adds the widgets needed based on the columns selected so if you select 1 there will be 1 widget area, if you select 4 there will be 4 widget areas. Unfortunately because of how the Customizer works when switching it in the customizer there is no way to force a “refresh” of the customizer so that it loads up the new widget areas.

Hi, thanks for supporting multiple categories being displayed on the blog post page previously. However when I choose to make a particular category as primary it does have higher priority than other categories on both the home page and blog post view. Is this a bug? Thanks.

One thing which I have been using but it’s buggy and a hassle was to use this plugin to reorder the category for each post individually and this plugin is no longer being supported.


ok no worries. I found another plugin to update this on a global level. Thanks! Another thing, how do I see what updates has been made to this theme recently?


The changelog for the theme is here: https://wpexplorer-themes.com/status/changelog/

I will be releasing another update soon though with a fix for instagram since they recently updated how their site works.

Hi Guys,

The instagram widget of the theme seems to have some issue since sometime now.

You can have a look at it here, http://webguy.in, towards the bottom of the site.

It has been giving me an error that says ‘Instagram has returned invalid data’ however, there seems to be no issue from Instagram’s end, I have verified the same using other plugins.

Can someone please look at it soon and provide a solution for the same.

- Thanks, Rajiv

Hi Rajiv,

I am releasing an update to fix the issue that was caused by a recent Instagram update. For a temp fix you can replace this file via FTP – https://cl.ly/qSjk – at wp-content/themes/wpex-status/inc/classes/widgets

Hello, my friend send this to me as a gift, but i can’t see where can i change my ads. I read the documentation that came with theme but there is no Advertisements tab on Appearance > Customize > General Theme Settings >.

Can you please help with this?

There should be a tab in there that looks like this: https://cl.ly/szOn

If not, there may be an issue with the version you received or there may be some plugin on the site breaking the Customizer :(

Technically because it is a premium theme you shouldn’t be using it on a domain without your own license for that domain.

Hi WPExplorer. I know my support has expired, but I am working on Status now and there is an option in Custmozier which I cannot see – excerpt length. I checked Custom excerpt… I don.t know. I read sth about plugins which alter. For ex. I use All in one wordpress security. Thank you and appreciate. Radu

Hi Radu,

You can alter the excerpt length under Appearance > Customize > General Theme Settings > Entries: https://cl.ly/740cfdf3e6be

Make sure the setting above is set to display a custom excerpt as well.

This theme uses a custom function for the excerpt so an external plugin won’t do the trick.

Thank you very much for replying and explanations.
