Hope you are doing great. :)

Quick question, if I buy your template can I use it for my theme’s offline documentation which will be shipped with the theme? I will just need the “one page” for some basic explanations, since the full documentation will be a whole different website.

Looking forward hearing from you.


I guess that’s not acceptable in terms of Themeforest standard license because you’re packing the templates files inside your theme package. It considers as resell/redistribution.

You might need to ask this question from Envato team. If they’re ok, I’m fine too.


Hello, I purchased the non Wordpress version of this by mistake, but now also purchased the Wordpress version. Could you please refund me for the non-wordpress version. Thanks!

Hi, I have a pre-shopping question: how is TheDocs – Online Documentation Template different from TheSaaS – Responsive Bootstrap SaaS Template? Can I use theSaaS to do the same as in TheDocs? I mean creating documentation.

I am asking because it seems to me that TheSaaS has much more components and the regular license costs almost 2x less. I ask, are they really that different? Can you create the same as in TheDocs using existing components in TheSaaS? I mainly mean documentation. I look forward to your reply and best regards.


You can use TheSaaS for documentation purpose to some extends if pages in http://thetheme.io/thesaas/docs/index.html would cover your need. But if you need more complex layout or syntax highlighter and copy button, etc. you should go with TheDocs.

I suggest to just browse the pages and UI Kit to see what you can get from each one.

Hello, may I buy this template and convert it to codeigniter then sell it on codecanyon? We can discuss about royalty if needed.


I’m not interested in royalty. You’ll have my permission if you get an extended license.

I am working with the basic package and I integrated the template into my angular application. When I setup the page.js file I get the following error: scroll.js:13 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘top’ of undefined at scroll.js:13 … any idea what the problem could be? Is there a way to make this work without jquery? It doesn’t go well with angular..and the only function which isnt working is the toggle button in the mobile navbar..whic is kind of important


Unfortunately jQuery is a requirement for this template as it required by Bootstrap and few other plugins. I’m not sure how you can integrate the template into angular.

Regards navbar toggle button, which page of our demo has this issue? I can’t see this issue.


Hello TheThemeio,

Can i use this documentation for my all codecanyon product documentaions?

Thank you.


Based on https://themeforest.net/licenses/standard , each license is for a single end product. So I guess each product requires separate license. But you can contact Themeforest support center to make sure about it.


The accordion menu in the left sidebar does not work well. If the sidebar contains too many items to fit on the page, the footer covers it. Please check the screenshot: https://imge.to/i/vFPV3x

It’s the expected behavior, otherwise the sidebar menus would overlap the footer.

I think i could not explain the issue. I am not able to see the all sub items. They are behind the footer and the scroll is at the bottom. This is the problem.

Are you able to share an online link so I can see and inspect the code? I guess adding some padding to the bottom of sidebar (probably equal to the height of footer) would fix the issue.

Hello, is this HTML / Worpress ? I am willing to buy a HTML documentation. But the price of this item is making me confused a little. Though i am highly interested to buy this, if this is a HTML template.


Yes, this is HTML template.

Hey, greate theme :) I was wondering how to change the font globally? I see it is being referenced in the .js files alot so I am not sure what to do.



Have you checked http://thetheme.io/thedocs/docs/kb-expert-starter.html ? You can change the font-family from SCSS variables inside /assets/scss/_theme.scss file if you’re using the expert starter.


Hi there,

I’m using the expert directory here, but I’m facing an issue when running the `gulp serve` command. This is the error I get:

``` $ gulp serve fs.js:27 const { Math, Object } = primordials; ^

ReferenceError: primordials is not defined at fs.js:27:26 at req_ (/Users/john/Code/expert/node_modules/natives/index.js:143:24) at Object.req [as require] (/Users/john/Code/expert/node_modules/natives/index.js:55:10) at Object.<anonymous> (/Users/john/Code/expert/node_modules/vinyl-fs/node_modules/graceful-fs/fs.js:1:37) at Module._compile (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:774:30) at Object.Module._extensions..js (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:785:10) at Module.load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:641:32) at Function.Module._load (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:556:12) at Module.require (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:681:19) at require (internal/modules/cjs/helpers.js:16:16) ```

These are my NPM and Gulp versions:

``` $ gulp -v CLI version: 2.2.0 Local version: 3.9.1

$ npm -v 6.9.0 ```

Any idea’s as to what’s going on? I can’t build or serve the expert folder without this step unfortunately.


Cool beans. Any idea when you’re going to release a new version? It’s inconvenient to downgrade node for every dev working on this project. Thanks!

You’re right, and every one should update their gulp to version 4.x which might not be convenient for some of customers. I’ll spend some time on the template in the upcoming weeks and try to release an update in early August.


I’ve just spent some time on this issue. Please download latest gulpfile.js and package.json from https://ufile.io/6kxfw9i9 which uses Gulp v4. This should resolve your issue. I’ll include this fix in the next release which is about 2 weeks later.

Hi. Is it still possible to buy the Bootstrap 3.x version of this?

- forget this question, I found the answer:

“v1.5 The previous major release of TheDocs which is included for thousands od customers who has developed their project based on the v1.x.”

Hi. I can’t see in the Live Preview how would the user add new page to the online manual. Is there an add new page button? Is there a CMS-like editor for editing or adding text to a page?


Here’s a link to the demo if you can’t see it form Themeforest preview: http://thetheme.io/thedocs/ .

It’s a HTML template. So you’d create the pages by copy/paste a ready page in the template and modifying its content.

Hi, I think I got wrong version. Base on error I am getting (The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.) I need WP theme. Can I get refund. Regards, Vadym


You can send your request from https://themeforest.net/refund_requests/new so we can review your request.


Hi. Install failed. Error: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

what is a good way to reuse navbar on multiple pages instead of copying it on every page? I tried jQuery, say


The navbar file nav.html is loaded, but the CSS is messed up. In particular, it fails to be sticky and I can’t get out of the sidebar in mobile mode by clicking outside.

There’s not any good way to load navbar into your page using Javascript. You should do it in your server-side language. In HTML, you have to redo it in all pages. If you load the content using Javascript, it start loading and adds to the page after DOM got ready. That cause problems both in UI and running JS code on navbar. So it’s better to use a simple PHP code to split your project into several files.

Hi, is this available as a WordPress theme?

Come on man, I’ll buy two.

You might ask someone else in freelance community to make it for you. We’re not able to do that.

Ok thank you sir.

Hello again! Could you tell me if the header of a page (http://thetheme.io/thedocs/page/terms.html) can have the gradient replaced with an image?

This code seems to control the gradient/colour:

<header class=”header” style=”background-color: #f1f6fa”>

Many thanks, I want to use this image as an article image and use that image as a summary image for Twitter and Facebook Cards and for the property=”og:image” tags.


You need to have a gradient instead of a solid background color? So yes. Simply replace the “background-color: #f1f6fa” with your desire gradient which could be something like “background-image: linear-gradient(to top, #a18cd1 0%, #fbc2eb 100%);”

Hello, great template. Is there a way to add a search function to this and is there a way to add the ability to navigate pages with a “next page” button or with the arrow keys?


Regards search, we don’t have such a functionality, but you might be able to use Algolia and services like this one.

For next page button, you can easily link to another page without any problem. We don’t support key binding pagination.

Awesome work here, guys! Do you have a Wordpress version of it?

Unfortunately, no. We don’t have WordPress version.

Thanks for the great template. I’m getting a lot of spam from the contact form, though. Can you advise on adding Google reCAPTCHA code to sendmail.php?

Thank you so much! Cheers for the great template.
