    How could I get rid of the third column including Recent posts and Sponsors, but instead have a 3 column and 2 rows of content?

      drug somthing that you do not want

      “If you want to remove the widget but save its setting for possible future use, just drag it into the Inactive Widgets area. You can add them back anytime from there. This is especially helpful when you switch to a theme with fewer or different widget areas.”

    • elena-lenalena

      this theme is not for 3 colums of blogs but 2 colums of blogs and custom content:

      apperence ->customize ->widgets:SideBar ->Add awidget ->Text

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function of_get_option() in /home/camer134/public_html/wp-content/themes/Monaco/slide.php on line 4

    Any suggestions?



    • Sergey

      Install and activate the Option Framework plugin

    • elena-lenalena

      go to appearence -> widgets
      you will see a link to “Option Framework plugin”

      install it,

      then go back to appearence -> widgets and activate the plugin

  • Happy Philippines

    i want to use this theme but I can’t seem to add pages/menu 🙁

  • anon

    Slider is not working for us. We are using the latest version of WordPress and we don’t see option to add images to the slider.

    • Best Digital Camera 2013

      Mine ok, and it is so wonderful for me. It’s indeed a very excellent theme.

      Work very well on “your latest post”. Check Appearance > Customize

    • zenmama

      I have the same problem. I can add images, but don’t know which url to use. I’ve put the images ad different places, but none worked. What’s the default folder this theme uses?

      • Zenmama

        I found out that the slider uses posts. I made a specific category for the slider. The images the slider uses are the ones you define in the right column at the bottom. Good luck!

  • LFH

    Nice theme. Everything works fine now, except my slider. I simply can’t figure out how to insert new pictures into it? Can anyone tell me?

  • Dsand

    For some reason the Sponsors alternate wording works fine on Explorer and Firefox, but come up blank on Safari.

    Any suggestions?

  • Bert

    I’m getting crazy.
    Is there anyone who knows how to get the slider working?

    I made a category called slides, set in the options that this is the one to be shown in the slider.

    Tried putting a photo in the post, tried to make it an highlighted picture. But none of it seems to work.

    Anyone got it to work and willing to share how to do it?

    • Tom G


      The way that works for me is to load my photo into Blogger. Once loaded, that establishes a URL location for where that photo is housed. Then, you have to go into the template html and find the header widget–your copy that’s in the slider window will tell you you’re there.

      Then, you place the URL location in the appropriate place in the code. It should be obvious as the code will be there for the photo currently in the slider, and the last part of the URL will contain the name of the jpg.

      You’ll be putting your NEW photo location URL over the OLD one for the picture currently in the slider.

      Then save the template and your photo

      I hope this helps.

  • Debbie Bannister

    I like this theme. Thanks for offering if for free. I will buy some of your themes.

  • Kris

    I am new to using WordPress themes. How do I get the slider to show at all? Am I supposed to put a certain code on my home page or anything? Thanks in advance!

  • Steve Mac

    How do you change the red color in the slider? It’s not clear anywhere in the CSS.

    • Bill

      You need to change color in picture /wp-content/themes/Monaco/images/caption.png – this image is a background for text.

  • Tobit

    Is this a Bug? The theme does not resize pictures.
    I add a picture to an articel, then i change the size for example to 80% in the picture proberties. Result: original picture size in the published articel.

  • Manuela

    I’m using the theme but it only opens up the first and second page. No charges the previous posts. What do I do to fix this problem?

  • Ruud

    I am very happy with the theme Monaco, but I would like to replace the text with a picture (logo) in the header. Is this possible?

  • mati

    Good theme, very nice.

  • Mark

    This is the one of the best themes out there, but how can I change the colour of the red to a blue? And is there a way to add in an image for the header instead of the text?

  • about2flip

    What is the size of the image for the slider?

  • sam mathew
  • Zenmama

    Since the latest update of WordPress my website has a problem with showing images of posts on the homepage. This means the images in the slider won’t show (the slider itself works fine) and images shown above the posts on home won’t show. I deactivated all the plugins and activated them one by one, but no result. Who has any idea about a solution on this?

    • Zenmama

      i’ve found the problem!

      • Louis

        The slider uses the most recent posts, but once we had it showing 4 basic pages which did not change. Now it only shows “recent posts”- Was this something an update changed? Any idea how to get back to the way it worked before?

        • Louis

          Fixed this using “categories” – Set up a custom one only for posts we wanted on the slider.

      • pbe

        having the same issue since updating to wp 4.1. what was your solution?

  • Paul Bruynooghe

    Hoping for a fine theme.

    • Paul Bruynooghe

      But I don’t want to use facebook nor twitter. Share or like???? Not a good idea.

      • Paul Bruynooghe

        Bye bye Monaco!

    This is one of the best Themes I have seen in a while. I am usually customizing the day lights out of something to get it to look like this! And then everything is all php’d out, it is a flippin dream for someone that knows what they are doing to work with! I just grabbed another Theme to see if its built the same way. You may have a client for life!

    This theme does not look good on my mobile phone. It doesn’t fit automatically to the screen and it shows weird stripes. Does anybody know how to solve this problem? I don’t like to use a plugin to solve this.

    My post text loses all HTML formatting in the slider caption block. Is that typical?
