    I’m a novice at WordPress and theme building, so I’m having the devil of a time getting the comment block to show up on my posts. Can you help?

    Hi, Every time I visit this https://theyflyblog.com/

    I get a blank page now with the following saying.

    “Hi Jetpack! All systems go.”

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Your site seems to look fine to me. I assume you fixed the Jetpack error…

    Hi Tim, I really like your Link theme and would want to use it.
    I am no pro and I am desperately trying to change the color of the cover-image h1 in the style css. It doesn´t work! How can I change it?


    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      It’s always best to use your Browser developer tools to inspect an element you want to change. In this case its “.cover-image h1”, so in CSS you can change it to black (or whatever) with:
      .cover-image h1 { color: black; }

    I am in the need for support for your Flat Bootstrap and Spot theme. Where do I find the right forum for that?

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      On this site, I would ask questions on the particular theme you are asking about. This particular page is more for people to say “hi” and/or ask questions that aren’t theme specific. There are also forums on WordPress.org for each theme in the directory, so for example my Flat Bootstrap theme forum is here: https://wordpress.org/support/theme/flat-bootstrap

    Would like to remove gerrybahl.com theme information (xtremelysocial etc) from Google search results. Thanks.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      I’m not sure what you mean. By default, my themes show copyright by . Theme by xtremelysocial.com. In the latest versions of my themes (latest as of now is Flat Bootstrap v1.8 as the parent of all my themes), I have put span tags around the latter part to make it easier to hide with a simple line of CSS. I don’t know what gerrybahl.com is other than your site name itself. Please share a bit more information about what you are trying to do and I’ll see if I can help.

    I am using the Spot theme and generally it works great (when it doesn’t work great it is usually something that I am not doing.) However, I have been trying to change the Sidebar from the right side to the left side and not locating the menu to accomplish this. I appreciate your help.

    I’ve translated the Flat Bootstrap theme to dutch language. But not every translation is picked up. For example the text of “required/recommended plugins” installation and activations stays in English. What I’m doing wrong. Other thing are translated like “theme powered by” “call to action” etc. Other question is can I send my translation to someone so its in the next version?

    Hi Tim, Thanks for the awesome free Link template. Once I have finised making my site using your template, I definately would like to make a donation to you. I am completly new at this and I am in the learning phase of building a website with any sort of template. Is there a tutorial availabe for your Link template. I cannot figure out how to change the “page bottom” and the “footer”. Any help will be most appreciated.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      There is info on our How to use our WordPress themes page. The theme has samples in the page bottom and footer. When you add widgets to the page bottom and footer, the sample widgets go away. The easiest way to recreate them is to “view page source” in your browser and copy the section you want and paste it into a Text widget.

    You create cool wordpress themes, Tim? Your themes SUCK. They are not user-friendly at all and not customizable. Very frustrating, yet so basic. F@#$.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Wow. I’ve never had anyone be so negative and vulgar against my free themes. I hope you don’t mind me editing your swear word. The themes themselves are meant to comply specifically with the core WordPress theme itself and Bootstrap from Twitter. So I support the standard Configuration options in that theme. However, there are many things built into the theme that are designed to “just work” out of the box without requiring a whole slew of configuration options. There are also thousands of great plugins out there that can add functionality to your site and the idea is not to try to put too much functionality into any one theme itself.

      Do you have any specific things that you are looking to customize? I’ve answered many posts here on my site as well as in the theme’s support forums on WordPress.org as to how to use some simple CSS or PHP to customize the themes.

    Hi Tim,

    I am using the Spot theme and I love it. Good work! I have one issue I can’t figure out for the life of me. I have edited most of the CSS to manage my own color scheme, but how do I edit the green button on the search? I’ve looked in every possible file for the color code #1abc9c

    Please help!!

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Look in the file /css/theme-flat.css in the Flat-Bootstrap theme. If you are using a child theme, like Spot, Link, Pratt, etc. then make sure to look into the parent theme’s directory for that file. Look for code like this, which effects ALL buttons, including the search button.

      html input[type="button"],
      input[type="submit"] {

    Hi Tim, I’m trying to change the header text from white to bg-brightred, I can’t find where I insert the color. Header Text “Name, Tagline” – Thanks – Ed

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Changing the header text color for site name and tagline is built into the theme. Go to Appearance -> Customize.

      1. Ed Benesch Avatar
        Ed Benesch

        Hi Tim, that was the first place I went prior to posting this issue, the only option is “background” colors…. There is no indication of “header text font color” in the area you pointed me to. Can you be more specific or point me to a pdf manual that has specific instruction? Thanks.

        1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

          Oh, you must not be using Flat Bootstrap. In Appearance -> Customize -> Colors there are two settings: header text color (which changes both the site title and tagline) and Background Color (which changes the color behind the text in the header). For my other themes, only the Background Color can be selected. It changes the background of the whole page. Thanks for pointing this out, though. I’ll see if there is an easy way to allow the header text color to be changed in my other themes. For now, you can add css like “a.navbar-brand { color: #123456; }”

          1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

            Good news, Ed. This took quite a bit of changes to the Pratt theme as compared to the parent theme (Flat Bootstrap), but I’ve worked it out. In the next release you’ll be able to use the Customizer to change the header text color.

    Hi Tim, first awesome websites and themes!!!
    Haven’t tried but really like your design and feel, I found this place from someone who used your theme and carried your design info.

    Question: how do you manage the membership? which plugin you use?
    (I am using S2Member for paid contents, but still want some social features for members.)
    any suggestions?

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      I’ve been using the social connector from sociable.es for a very long time now. However, I have written my own plugin to override some code and I’m using my own plugin to display the recent members widget and members pages. I’d like to someday release a simple members plugin based on the one I wrote for my site, but I haven’t had time. I’ve been swamped at my real job and then free time is spent on these WordPress themes.

    I am back in the WordPress biz ( I do mostly Marketing of Musicians ) I bought Genesis along with Prose but I like this theme but am tearing my hair out Not trying to do anything fancy but trying to create landing page with no search bar ( also maybe add music to landing page as I manage Musicians. Any help appreciated .


    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      I’ve considered adding a page template for landing pages, but its not really supported in WordPress. By that I mean the page templates just control the content of the page, not the header, footer, and sidebar. I’d have to add code to the header.php, footer.php, etc. to detect for the special page template and not display those components. You could build a child theme and do that and your code would remain in place even when upgrading the theme. But if you just want to hide a single thing, like a search bar, then you could it with CSS. Each individual page in WordPress gets a page id added as a body class. E.g. This page on my site is “page-id-360”.

    Hi Tim,
    how can i translate the “Read More” link on the posts excerpts ? I have edited the fr-FR.po located in the “languages” folder of the flat-bootstrap-child theme, of the flat-bootstrap theme, even in in the “wp-include/languages/themes/languages/” folder with :
    # @ flat-bootstrap
    #: wp-includes/class-wp-editor.php:990
    msgid “Read More”
    msgstr “Lire la suite”
    but it still doesn’t work …
    Any suggestions,

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      I’m not sure why adding it to fr-FR.po wouldn’t work. I’m definitely not an expert in WordPress language translations, though. I can point you to a brute-force method for now. Look at the file /inc/template-tags.php and you’ll see a function named xsbf_get_the_excerpt. You could change it there. Or you could override that function altogether in functions.php. Or better yet, put it in a plugin so it doesn’t get blown away when I release v1.6. I wish I had a better answer as to how to fix it normally in the language files. Please let me know if you figure it out.

    Re: Flat Bootstrap WordPress theme site title: How can I remove the site title from the main nav bar? I am using an image in the header, so I selected to not show the site title in the header. That made that site title appear in the nav bar. I can’t see how to remove it. If I delete the site title, then it disappears from the nav bar, but also from the footer.


    1. allisonps Avatar

      Never mind… I just found that code in the header.php and I deleted it.

    I am trying to customize the bottom ‘Page Bottom’ sidebar on your Flat Bootstrap Child theme.
    When i publish some contents in the bottom side bar widget, this content doesn’t appear.
    Do i have to copy some files from the parent theme to the child theme for editing them ?
    Which type of content can i put i thoses top or bottom widgets (pages, posts or whatever ?)
    Thanks !

    How do I remove the homepage link from the menu bar? I can’t find any options anywhere.


    As you can see the link is a home link, but I have no control over it.

    I am using xtremly social theme and want to change the background color of the top menu. Can I do this? And where do it. I am an extremely illiterate when it comes to code so I would need a few step by steps please.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      You can add your own CSS to change the color of the top menu. The CSS class is ‘navbar’. So you can do it like this:
      .navbar { background-color: #000000 }

    Hi Tim, Is there a way to change the whole theme color with just one update to css? Thanks

      It doesn’t look like your site is running any of my themes. Do you perhaps have a test site or something?

    I just upgraded XtremelySocial.com to the new version of WordPress and everything seems to be working great! Please let me know if you run into any issues, though.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      New user registration wasn’t working, but is now fixed! Sorry folks! At the same time, Facebook changed their data access and authorization methods AND the latest version of WordPress REQUIRES an email address for new users. For now, I’m stuffing in a bogus one, but it probably makes sense to go ahead and prompt users for access to their Facebook email and store that. Don’t worry, I have no plans to spam anyone!

  31. Tim Nicholson Avatar

    Now I’m testing modifications to a new plugin that not only connects with Facebook, but also MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Yahoo!

  32. Tim Nicholson Avatar

    I have updated the site to optionally post comments back to Facebook. They changed the API’s on us and I had to update the way it works. Let me know if there are any issues.

    What translation platform was / is / will be used in order to localize the applications?

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      My Info is my only Facebook application that is set up to be translated and its only set to allow Spanish. Facebook has the translation features built in. I can activate another language if you are interested in translating it.

      For my other Facebook applications, such as My Greetings and My Status, I haven’t had any requests for translation or anyone offering to translate. It is a fair amount of work to make the application translation-ready, so I haven’t bothered until there was demand.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Judotens, I’m trying to work with the original author to have him incorporate my enhancements… and build a plugin system so that I can release additional features that he doesn’t want to support as my own plugin on top of his. Thanks for joining the site!

  36. Tim Nicholson Avatar

    I’m testing out a cache system for XtremelySocial.com to speed up page loads and reduce memory and database queries on my server. Keep in mind, though, that the Facebook features still hit Facebook’s servers real-time. I also want to make sure that when someone comments on the site, those comments appear quickly.

  37. Monchee Yuson Avatar

    Can you e-mail me your version of sociable.es’ version of fbconnect plugin? I think your’s is better..

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Monchee, Thanks for the compliment on my enhancements. Right now the code isn’t ready to release. What I’m trying to do is get the original plugin author to work with me to encorporate at least some of the enhancements into his plugin. Also to work with him to provide a plugin framework where myself and others can extend the functionality. I haven’t heard from the author yet, though. I don’t really want to have two completely separate versions (“forks”) of the plugin out there. I’ll keep everyone posted on any progress made with the author.

      1. Monchee Yuson Avatar

        ok. i understand.. but hopefully it’d be released soon.. btw, the “publish this comment to facebook” keeps getting errors right now.. i think fb updated their code..

        1. Monchee Yuson Avatar

          oh, it’s working again! how’d u fix it??

          1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

            Hmm. I didn’t actually change anything related to publishing comments to Facebook. Let me know if you have any more problems with that, though. Thanks!
