I am using the latest version, which I see has been updated last time over a year ago, and is using timthumb, is it secure?
Yes, the latest version of Cotton contains a secure version of Timthumb.
Quick presale questions.
a. The image slider (nivo) can be applied to the portfolio pages, correct? I am assuming that is what is meant by “Slider Image Management” (http://pexeto.com/thecotton_wp/portfolio/slider-image-management/)
b. Is there a function for News? The blog will already be taken up by blog content. The news section will be similar but how could they be separated? Any recommendations?
Thank you for the interest Here are my answers:
a. By default the Nivo slider is supported on standard pages only – when you say “portfolio pages” do you mean Portfolio Gallery page or Portfolio Showcase page, or you mean portfolio item post page (like this one)?
b. You can easily create different blog pages with different categories – for example this page contains the posts from the Featured category only.
a. I am referring to the portfolio item post page. Is the Nivo slider applicable to that page? For example, our portfolio items (projects) have multiple images to showcase.
By default the single portfolio item page doesn’t support sliders, but I think with a few code modifications this can be accomplished. Or alternatively you can use the official Nivo slider WordPress plugin.
Great to know there are two options. Which of the two would you recommend as the more clean/seamless integration.
If you apply the code changes to the theme, it will contain the same design as the default theme design, so that may be a little better solution, but using the plugin should be a good solution as well. I already have the required modification code snippet, so if you decide to purchase the theme, I can provide it on our support site.
Great, thanks. Purchased
I hope you will enjoy working with it
“I already have the required modification code snippet, so if you decide to purchase the theme, I can provide it on our support site.”
Has this been added to the support forum yet? I can’t seem to find it.
We don’t have it published in an article – just open a ticket in there and I will provide it to you.
I need a little help, I was trying to sign up to the forum but received an error that my username already exists, even though I used two different email addresses and never signed up before.
Anyway, I integrated your theme with aMember and the sign up page cuts the footer off:
the theme is intact, it hasn’t been modified in any way other than in options panel settings. how can this be solved?
I can see that you are registered on our support site with this theme and that you have already opened a ticket (42 days ago). If you want you can use the reset password functionality to reset the password and get access again. If you can’t do this, just contact me personally by using our profile contact form here and I will manually reset your password and provide it to you.
Hello! I’m trying to buy this them, but in the last momento i have a question. It’s this theme responsive? Thanks
The theme is not in a responsive layout, but it looks and works well on mobile devices.
I am developing a site with this theme and the documentation says that there should be a couple of plugins included but they are not. Would you be able to send them to me?
Pexeto’s portfolio posts loader – its purpose is to display the latest portfolio thumbnails in the sidebar
Pexeto’s latest posts loader – displays the latest blog posts in the sidebar
When you download the whole zip from your Downloads section here on ThemeForest and unzip this file, you will see a folder called “plugins” – this is where you can find all of the plugins included with the theme.
If you still experience a problem with finding these plugins, you can register on our support site here:
and open a ticket – I will attach them in there.
Ok, I got them from the designer who originally purchased the theme. Thanks!
How can I update the copyright text on the footer?
We have a dedicated support system where all the Pexeto items support is handled, so we kindly ask you to use our support system here:
to post your support questions. Thank you
Can you just post the answer here?
Generally all of our items support is handled on our support site only – we don’t do support here on the comments section. Anyway – I will do a small exception now – you can change the default text in Cotton Options -> Translation -> Other section and make more advanced changes in the code in the footer.php file on lines 28-31. If you need more detailed instructions, please use our support site – thank you!

Another quick question: for the Portfolio page, I’m using the Portfolio Gallery template. Is there a way to exclude specific posts from showing there by post ID? Thanks!
Hello I need your help i purchased the Cotton theme and i have some SEO problems on the Startpage http://andreabangel.de/
there are three pictures at the bottom of this page and this pictures called Fotografien, Illustrationen and My green city for the image tag is no ALT attribute defined. How can i change it. On the Pexeto page I’ve found no answer for this problem.
Thanks in advance for a quick response.

I really like your theme – it’s one of my Top 3 choices.
Before purchasing i have got two questions:
1. Is it possible to use much bigger font size for headlines than in your examples?
2. Is it possible to include a language choice button, to have the same pages two times, in english and german?
Thanks for your reply!
Thanks, I’m glad you like the theme
1. You can accomplish this with a small CSS addition – we can provide instructions on our support site.
2. By default a multi-language functionality should be accomplished with a dedicated plugin – there are lots of good multi-language plugins, such as qTranslate and WPML.
Pre sale question:
Can the height of the front page slider be adjusted?
Is there an option not to display it at all?
Thanks in advance.
Yes, there is an option to not display the slider. Regarding changing the height – by default there isn’t an option, but this can be easily accomplished – we have already created a tutorial about this.
Thanks for the great theme! One question- How do I edit the copyright info.
P.S. You can change all main texts used in the theme in the “Translation” section of the Cotton Options page.
where is the content slider??? not even there… nice work though!
P.S. I just noticed that we have accidentally inserted an empty link in the documentation menu to a “content slider” section, but there isn’t such kind of slider (you can see all the sliders available on the demo) – sorry if this link confused you, we will remove it in the next update.
Thanks for the beautiful theme The Cotton !
Before buying this wordpress, I’d like to know if it’s possible to put on podcasts on, please (a friend of mine who uses already a wordpess said to me, that she didn’t see the link to post podcasts). If it’s possible, how can I do it ?
Thanks a lot !
I think that WordPress by default doesn’t support an option for podcast embedding and the theme also doesn’t support such kind of option, however you can use a plugin for this – there are different podcast plugins available, a quick search can list some of them.
Is this theme supports boxed-out background?
By default the theme doesn’t support a boxed layout option, however if this layout is important to you, you may also check our Dandelion Theme which is in a boxed layout and provides a similar functionality to The Cotton theme.
Is there a support forum for this theme or is this page the place to ask questions if you have some?
Yes, we have a ticket support system here:
There are some public articles in there and also if they are still not helpful, you can register and open a ticket with your question.
