  1. Can you provide a step by step tutorial of how i can link a post to those drop down menus (the horizontal links at the top: home download social etc etc)

    • You can link your labels as categories in the menu, by fetching the label url and just replacing the # with the url.

  2. Hello, I’m using a free version of this template and odd box is also not appearing. I haven’t changed anything in the code, I entered the same label that is used in posts and nothing appears. Could you help me fix this?

  3. Dear Oddtheme Team, I installed the template (and I love it!), but I can´t edit the main menu bar. I´ve copied the HTML-Code in this discription (as discripted at point 5) in the content area and tried to replace # with the label url. It´s not working. It says “page doesn´t exit”. And the URL is shown as this:
    How can I fix this?

    Thank you for your answer!
    Greetings from Germany,

    • Edit your menu widget and delete the (” “) double quotes and again put the double quotes. It will work fine.

  4. Please help. I purchased this template and receive a zip file to download – the template file is empty? Also, I purchased the licensed version and the documentation says I am unable to edit the footer – I thought by buying the license I would be able to edit? Please advise.

    • <span class="follow-us-sidebar">
      <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a>
      <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a>
      <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-pinterest"></i></a>

      3. You have labels in all your blog posts.
      4. You have Google Plus profile associated with your blog.


  7. Thank you for this amazing template! ^^ It looks awesome.
    I have a question: Is there a way to change “Read More” text?
    I’ve been trying to change it but I couldn’t find how to do it.

  8. Thank you for this awesome template, it has been incredibly useful!

    I was wondering if you could please help me out with my oddbox and instagram feed? I’ve tried following the instructions carefully, but it still doesn’t work unfortunately… Thank you! 🙂

      • The box is already there inside the image – I can see it, it just doesn’t appear when you hover over it, it is just constantly there

        • Yes the demo also has this thing on featured boxes. They don’t have the effect on hover but all other things have. Please check again. Thanks

          • Here is the code:

            <span class="follow-us-sidebar">
            <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a>
            <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a>
            <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-pinterest"></i></a>
            <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-heart"></i></a>
            <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-instagram"></i></a>

  9. Love the template, makes my blog look so professional.
    To the top menu (home, about me etc) how do I add a page to that so when I click on about me up the top it goes to a page all about me?

    • Hello, I am unable to understand what problems are you facing?? Are you talking about the Homepage or Postpage? Please elaborate more…!

      • in the homepage, the image is not in the correct pixel. The image is blurred because of the expansion to stay on the homepage. ex: wrong> Right >

        the pixel stay wrong because of the homepage display standard

        It was basically not to be out of focus, but with a larger viewing because of the image of 3000px I use in every post.

        If you do not understand no problem XD can survive it. The template is very good, congratulations!

        sorry about my english :/

  14. Hi, I purchased this theme few days ago, I love it and it works fine. Nevertheless I’m facing a couple of little problems:
    1. in the home it display only 5 posts (2+2+1) even if the settings are 6 or 8. Second page is fine, third or fourth again same issue, I don’t know what may cause that, maybe an alignment issue?
    2. when a category is selected from the category box, it disappear from the list and shifted on the right side of the box, I saw that the same happens in the Couture live demo.
    3. and most important: since when I updated with this new theme the links in the posts are not changing color, this is a problem cause people miss the links.. please help me figure this out! thank you!
