    Hi, Today I installed the wordpress theme Pilgrim. It’s a nice template, but in some way i can’t get the slider to show an image on the home template page.
    Also I was wondering where and how I could control the 4 boxes in the bottom, the ones with the round pictures above them. Now it’s controlled as a last post, so maybe i could use it as a text block?

    greatings and many thanks in advance!

  • zanda

    slider is not working in my site. help pls

    • Damon

      The slider uses blog posts. You need to go to the slider category under theme options, set up the correct category(uncategorized by default) and it will run slides of your posts with any incorporated images,
      Handy eh?

      • Rob

        Yeah, I did this, created a category, and nothing shows up in the slider category drop-down… is there a bug?

  • ed younkin

    Is there a way to replace the “Site Title & Tagline” area with a graphic of a logo?

    Thanks in advance,


    • Under the Sun Graphics

      First, delete the contents of the Site title and tagline fields so they are blank. Then go to your styles.css file and change the code to reflect the following (be sure to upload your logo to the image library first):

      width:881px ; /* change this to the width of your logo*/
      height:89px ; /* change this to the height of your logo*/
      margin:0px ;

      • Lisa

        Hi There,

        Can you please elaborate on this a little. I have played around with different combinations but can’t get the logo image to appear. Can you show exactly what needs to be removed and what sections of the new code should be customized.

  • Kalika Patel

    I really liked this personalized theme where you can customize your website’s menu according to your choice..

  • Farcas Gelu Danut

    I love your Pilgrim theme. I use responsinator.com to see, and is not responsive. Is possible to change this (with free plugins)?
    I use for my websites responsive themes with clickable contact phone in top right corner): Infoway and Local Bussiness (made by Inktheme).
    For another responsive template, i use call-now-button plugin, for Infoway and Local Business is not need.
    Please, use your mobile device or responsinator.com.
    Tnx very much for the theme, is great!

  • Pier

    Hello how do I view only the items a category below the slider?

  • Shivani Garg

    Im having the same problem. slider not showing up, nor are the categories.

    Category chosen as uncategorised. Set featured image on blog posts. Still nothing.

  • dyte

    May someone, please prepare a video for the options of this theme and teach us to control the slider and 4 rounded jQuery image controls. I’ll be grateful to…

  • porto

    The JQuery slider doesn’t exist! Something is missing here.

  • porto

    Oh well… never mind. I figure it out. Seems like a newbie like me has to do some research in order to work around these themes.

  • ebizl

    Try to go to the theme options and hit save. It might get the slider to function.

    Yiyi have no other way you wait for me.

  • Jess

    When setting the Slider images – first create a category name for the images. The size of the images is 960px x 400px. Then using Post — add a new Post, insert your photo, but also add the same photo in “Set featured image. So you have to add the images in both places
    Then the photos will show in the slider.

    • Peter

      Thanks Jess! Works perfect now. Another question, though, do you or anyone know how to change the text color on the slider? I can do it through css, but want to do so on an individual image basis.

      • Peter

        Where is the setting for font color on slider in css?

        • Lavend

          Hi Peter,
          I have the same question. Have you figured it out yet?

    Thanks in advance…

  • Taz


    Thanks for your fantastic theme, I’ve had fun playing on it and colour scheming it to suit my needs… I have a question though, please help…
    I am using your Pilgrim theme, which is fantastic, but the background image settings are strange – it keeps stretching my background image – any idea why?What us the best size for the background image? Is there something I can add to the css to fix that?
    I set the background image through the wp admin panel – appearance>background

    URL for reference

    obviously early stages of development and I still need to populate content.

    Thanks very much.

    Kind Regards,

  • HCube

    Loving many aspects of the theme. Using more as a static site than a blog, and wondering about how to make some items similarly static.
    For ex, I would like the three mini-widgets on the home page to link to pages – is there a way other than recoding the homepage template?

    Additionally, I like the rounded pictures, but worry that the spinning is a bit much. Where would I find the code that spins the pictures or how else can I nullify that?



  • Lavend

    I love your theme! The latest update makes everything working great.

    I still have 1 question: “Where is the setting for font color on slider in css?”
    I want to change the white color in another color.

  • Sinisa Janicijevic

    Hi there
    Your themes are just great. I`m currently working on Pilgrim theme. How can I change “Read more” that shows up on the photo in slide show


    can some 1 advice how to get the slider to work and how to get the post show up correctly from the home page?
    thank you in advance

  • pat

    This theme is extremely difficult to work with. I am having problems seeing all four pictures in the circles (only two are showing up) and each post is configured the same way.

    Also, the two pics that are showing up are going to the posts, the other two are bringing up blank pages when I click on the more ellipses.

    I’m unable to find good documentation on how to work with each element in this template!

    Can someone assist???

    • Ad

      Hi Pat, I was having the same problem, but after looking at the source (under water) I found out that you have to connect your posts to (p.e.) Homepage. Also connect at Theme Options your slider to category Homepage. Put the right picture to the right post. After that you will see a working slider on your homepage.

    But most of the themes dont have flexible width. Theme i have is quite simple and has flexible width. Thanks for info though.

    • Noor Abdulghani

      Salaam brother..

      I have a problem with this theme, it is nice and everything, but the only issue I am having is that when I click on any link to open one of my posts, I can only see the image and title of the post, but can’t see the main text of the post. If click on any link to a page then i can see the content of the page.for some reason the theme doesn’t allow to display text of any post. If i change the theme then it is fine all works well. Can please help me and suggest what I should do to get it to work? Ur help is much appreciated akhi.

    I’m trying to use this theme for my site (using WordPress 4.2.2), but every time I go to a blog post I get this error:
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function fabthemes_posted_on() in /home/content/p3pnexwpnas09_data03/91/2611991/html/wp-content/themes/Pilgrim/content-single.php on line 13

    • Zoe

      Fixed it.

      • sara

        How did you fix this? I keep getting the same error message.

  • Noor Abdulghani

    The theme is great, it took me sometime to figure it out, but after watching the video, I managed to do everything myself.

    However, there is a slight issue the same issue that Dave is having. When I click on one of my blogs, I can see the image ans title of my blog, but not the actual text. Is there any fix for this please? Is it because I am running the latest WordPress version and this theme is no longer compatible?
