I have also been having issues with this template since upgrading to the latest version of Wordpress. the VisualLightBox no longer works for photos or video. It used to be if I click a photo from the featured section it appeared in a nice javascript lightbox. Now if I click it it just takes it to the photos url straight up. ugly…Same for videos, used to appear in a nice lightbox, now it goes right to the youtube page. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Today I updated my WP to 3.7.1 with the solution by @srm5446. Yes! No Problem for me!!

WP3.8? Yes, no problem with the same solution!


The theme is great so far. However, I have a weird graphical glitch with the featured images. Can you take a look for me?


Everything is up to date.


Please check the documentation before updating.

Excellent product; excellent service… I purchased this product 3 years ago, and highly recommend it. On several occasions I’ve had questions, and each of those times they were answered quickly and made easily understandable.

Hi There-

The theme used to work great for several months. Now, the slider manager installed with the theme no longer allows me to add or remove a slide. The buttons are visible but it when I try to save a change, I get a 403 error and says permission is denied. Any suggestions?

What version of the theme are you using?

Hi Mbiz,

I want to purchase your theme but I want to know if it is compatible with woocommerce.

I need to purchase a theme by tomorrow as I am in a rush to start my website. I would appreciate to have a fast response.


Hi crystald, Thanks for being interested in my theme. Unfortunately no, it is not currently compatible with wooCommerce.

Ive been using this theme for a long time now and have just update our website with the latest version. It seems Nivo Slider will not let me use the slide navigation buttons when the effect is set to “Fade” but it will if set to the default “Random” effect? Can you help? I need “Fade” with the slider button s working.

Hi swimmingfungus,

theDawn theme doesn’t provide an option for Nivo Slider transition effect, it just uses the default effect which is “random”.
Please check the way you’ve implemented this, or contact me through my profile page to discuss it.


@hirok thanks for confirming my solution worked for you! Happy to help.

@mbiz have you fixed the menu/hover problem in theDawn? As of version 1.6.1, the drop down menus still break when we update WordPress. I posted a less than optimal fix on page 30 of this thread.

need some help, the blog page is showing full post instead of blog excerpts like i have checked off in the reading settings….what am i doing wrong here?

i buy thedawn themes but m getting error kindly give me solution

Warning: Illegal string offset ‘header-text’ in /home/hopehemo/public_html/wp-content/themes/thedawn/page.php on line 14

Is it possible to get the demo data that you use in the demo for this? I¨m trying to set this up but the slider goes all wrong, the portfolios aren’t showin where they should etc. ..

Hi, I purchased this theme a long time ago. Now I’m wondering if it’s possible to get that slider to work on any page, not just the blog page? No matter how I configured it I can’t get it to show on any other page than the blog page (as seen in the live preview) – I want to put it on the landing page which is a pure information page, not news/blogs. Is that possible? Regards // Kristoffer

Hi, Slider can only work in the Home page, there’s no option to add it to other pages, however, you can change your Home page layout to any of the available layouts, for example: static layouts.

Are there any plans to make the theme responsive? I just installed it and sadly the theme does not re-arrange itself to fit phones. im a bit disappointed as i took it for granted that it should work

Thank you for this awesome theme ..

Does this theme support RTL 100% ?
Is there any live demo or screenshot for RTL?

Thank you very much :)

Hi, Thank you for this great template. I need your help to add “language flag” from qtranslate-x plugin into header part of my homepage. Thank you for your help

Is this theme still supported? I built a site using this theme back in 2011 and the client has come to me saying the portfolio section is all broken and their dropdown navigation no longer works. I fixed the navigation by simply updating the theme files but the portfolio section still seems really messed up. The lightboxes no longer work, and thumbnails are not generating properly.

I will pay for additional support but I want to know someone will answer as the last time the author replied in the comments was 3 years ago…..

Thank you.
