    Hi! hey great theme man. Couple of questions…

    – Can I set an image (company logo) instead of the Blog Title on the top of the sidebar?

    – How can I change the color of the sidebar? It is red and I want it to be orange or black..

    thanks! really appreciate it

    • Tonya Schulte

      Were you ever able to find a way to change the color of the header bar?

      • Franzi

        Yes you can. Both of it. But you have to change adjust the template a bit and know css.

        1. Go to header.php, open it and search for “” and then you can add an “” tag with your logo.

        I did it like this:

        <a href="” title=”” rel=”home”>

        For the Name + Logo. Of course you will have to adjust the css than.

        2. The color is defined in the style.css in #masthead, change the background-color to orange or black and you are done, eg.:
        #masthead {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #0000FF;
        border-top: 3px solid #0000FF;
        margin: 30px 10px 0 50px;
        position: fixed;
        width: 180px;
        z-index: 100;
        }

        Of course you’ll have to change the graphics to.

  • Lavell

    I have a couple of question about this WP theme.

    1. Can the sidebar box be moved to another location on the page?
    2. Can the color of the sidebar be changed?

  • Darren Boucher

    I noticed that the menu resizes proportionally on default template but not on the home page. Unfortunately this means when someone on a phone views my main page some of the menu items are not visible to them. Is there a way to make it so the menu will resize proportionally for the home page as well?

    Other than that I love this theme. I want to make it work.

  • Tim

    Hi All. Can someone guide me on getting the posts link to show on the main menu. I am just learning wordpress and having a tough time getting that to work. Thanks and have a great day!

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if there is a premium version of this theme that is mobile responsive? /an update, plugin etc

    I’d love to use the theme but without it being responsive it’ll take a fair amount of extra coding.

    Thanks,

    • Scrambler

      i think it’s a css setting…
      i’m interested too.

    • Scrambler

      Solved. Search and replace the empty “mesh” image file in theme directory.

      • Terriney

        Hi, the images on the homepage as well as the background images are all very blurry. What is the dimension for the images that should show on the homepage and background for it not to show blurry.

        If the “mesh” image file has anything to do with this; exactly where do I find this file under theme directory????

        Please advise.

  • olivier

    nice theme!

  • vince

    really nice theme!

  • Luca

    sorry but I had to cancel the twitter endorsement.

    slideshow and background images do not display at all.

    afterhaving configured the home page and other options all I see is an empty homepage with a broken image whose code is .

    there’s no ../lib directory on the theme, nor it seems to me there are specific instructions on that matter on this page (and anyway I would expect this kind of options to work flawlessly out of the box).

    if you have instructions I’d like to know them.

    • nash

      same problem here….did you find any resolution ?

      • bob

        same problem!

    • bob

      solved:
      1) your home page has to be using the “homepage” template
      2) you have to have at least 1 of the “slide” custom post type with an attached image and category
      3) specify the category and number of slides in theme options

      • Kimberly

        Hmmm … that’s not working for me. Did anyone find another solution?

    Downloaded this theme, but it says it does not support the Options Framework plugin. How do I get the slider to work? I cannot seem to publish anything onto the site as well. So frustrated. Help. Newbie to Word Press here.
