    Thanks for the great featured Free Premium Theme for WP lovers like me :-).

  4. Mark   April 19, 2011 at 4:24 PM

    This is one of the best WP free themes; very professional style and options. However, the download link doesn't work with Download Manager and there's no way to download the theme if DM is installed on your machine. Please fix this issue. Many thanks.

    • Mehmet   April 19, 2011 at 7:50 PM

      Thanks for nice comments Mark.

      Not sure why you are not able to download it. It is a small zip. Can you try to disable your download manager and try direct download that way?

  5. Ed Sutherland   April 19, 2011 at 6:17 PM

    Snapwire is a beautiful theme – and you haven't spared any polish just because it is free. A nice addition to the Gabfire list.

    • Charlie   April 20, 2011 at 3:40 AM

      Definitely want the WP community to enjoy the complete Gabfire experience 🙂 Thx for the compliment.

      Thanks Senthil!

  7. Tony   April 20, 2011 at 8:12 AM

    Always fun to see what is "NEW" on the horizons from Gabfire Themes. Great move and another great premium theme. Free is unbelievable! Good Job!!!!!!


  8. Tony   April 20, 2011 at 8:33 AM

    Hey Charlie, just noticed that the 120 X 600 media ad box on left is not available to change the ad. Thanks.


    • Mehmet   April 20, 2011 at 12:53 PM

      Thanks for reporting that issue Tony, you can re-download the theme to get the fixed version

      • Tony   April 20, 2011 at 8:54 PM

        Hey Mehmet Downloaded new version. 120 X 600 ad box is now there, but get this warning now where it was. "Warning: …."

        Put in some ad code but it did not change.

        Thanks for all your hard work!!


        • Mehmet   April 20, 2011 at 11:16 PM

          Fixed, can you re-download it Tony?

    • Tony Assante   April 22, 2011 at 7:30 PM

  9. Tony   April 21, 2011 at 5:09 AM

    Thanks Team.


  10. Dennis   April 21, 2011 at 5:48 AM

    Love the new theme, got it installed no problem with the instructions but was wondering if there are any docs on how to add images and videos to posts?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Mehmet   April 21, 2011 at 12:16 PM

      For images use WordPress' built in "Set Featured Thumbnail" option. As for videos, we will have tutorials released soon in our codex.

    • rudy   May 7, 2011 at 10:28 PM


      i got the same problem did you find a solution ?

  11. Dog Magazine Canada   April 21, 2011 at 7:51 PM

    Easily the best free theme I've ever seen (already in action at – in fact, it'd be right up there as one of the best PREMIUM themes! Fantastic and thank you.

    • Cornelius   April 23, 2011 at 11:06 AM

      Well done with the new theme! Looks great…

    • Fernando Rueda   June 12, 2011 at 5:07 AM

      You have a great web page with this theme. I want to know how did you change the dark background of the page top. This is the only part that I don't like.

  12. taranulsef   April 21, 2011 at 8:30 PM

    Another great theme from Gabfire Themes. I wonder why this is free as it's got all the features of a paid theme but …thanks!

    I've got a question: how do you add a video to the post and make it show in the fetured posts slider on Front Page? Do you have some documentation for this?

    I think I'll sign up for a full membership as your work is great and by doing that I'll show my appreciation for it.

    • CF   April 22, 2011 at 12:57 AM


  13. CF   April 21, 2011 at 8:47 PM

    Awesome Theme but – how do you get Category based advertising turned on?


    • CF   April 25, 2011 at 4:44 AM

      Anyone know?

  14. crystal Holmes   April 22, 2011 at 4:16 AM

    i love love LOVE this theme but my theme uploader can't upload it =( i'm going away to cry now…

  15. mario   April 22, 2011 at 3:44 PM

    Thanks!! all team

  16. Richard   April 23, 2011 at 8:31 AM


    It looks great.

    I like to see what others have done with the theme.

    Please post your url.

  17. Cornelius   April 23, 2011 at 10:59 AM

    Gabfire WOW! You 'guys' ROCK! Beautiful FREE theme – WELL DONE! I'm impressed and will definitely spread the news widely but even more USE it in all my smaller projects I have. I am a very HAPPY CAMPER with my purchase of your other themes. Very PROFESSIONAL indeed. Many people thinks it's 'me' who are so clever creating such good WP themes…:)

  18. Tahir   April 24, 2011 at 4:58 PM

    thank you so much 4 giving us this theme! its wonderful 2 get such amazing theme for free! thanks

    thanks and help me plz

    • Mehmet   April 25, 2011 at 3:02 AM

      There is a do not duplicate post option, same post won't show up twice on front page.

  19. taranulsef   April 25, 2011 at 2:48 AM

    How do you add a video to the featured sideshow on frontage?

    • Mehmet   April 25, 2011 at 12:38 PM

      Taran, you have an account for support forums, right?

  20. Ahmed   April 26, 2011 at 2:27 AM

    Mehmet this theme is amazing! I was about to log in to support area when i saw it and the fact that you are giving it away for free only goes to confirm what i tell everyone about you. Not only are you the best WP theme designer out there, you also have the biggest heart. Thank you for giving the world the best!!!

  21. CF   April 26, 2011 at 7:15 PM

    Mehmet – I know this is maybe a support question but….you state the theme has category based ads and it doesn't seem to be the case. Can you simply say where this is within the theme settings?



    PS – awesome themes.

  22. Kaya   April 28, 2011 at 9:22 PM

    This is one of the best WP free themes…

    I have 2 question:

    1-I'm using on of "WP Now" themes,which is uses custom field thumbnail for images,i love this theme,but what should i do so i could put images like before in custom field to be show in the homepage and single posts?

    2-In all my old posts,i've putted images in the custom field thumbnail,now when i activated this theme,images in old posts doesn't show,what i have to do with this?

    i'll be very thankful.

    Kind Regards,


  23. Kaya   April 29, 2011 at 12:20 AM

    Thanks for your answer,but how to put thumbnail images that are not uploaded on my site..for example "Image Shack" links.when i paste the link in custom field thumbnail,it doesn't show…i used some plugins but didn't fix my problem.

    • Victor   June 11, 2011 at 6:26 PM

      Nice work with the Snapwire theme.

      I have one problem though. I can seem to add comments from the front end of my website. something like a comment 'div' appears but its empty.

      Any help?


  24. yusuf   May 6, 2011 at 11:03 PM

    Thanks for snapwire theme.. Perfect wordpress themes..

  25. restmix   May 7, 2011 at 8:21 AM

    thank you very much, i've been looking for this template for a long time, finaly i found it, thanks

  26. Wandi Sukoharjo   May 7, 2011 at 9:34 PM

    I like theme gabfire. I want to try download it sir. Can I do?

  27. Eric Sterling - Inte   May 8, 2011 at 3:11 AM

    Wow! I had never heard of gabfire before today. I came across a blog I really liked, looked for the theme name at the bottom, and came to this gabfire site.

    My first reaction was "pretty!", my second reaction was "pricey!", and when I saw that there is a free theme available, my third reaction was "yay".

    I do work with a few woo themes, and think that Elegant Themes are really beautiful, but I am also really excited to try this one out. it seems that you can have content blocks by category, and I have searched high and low for free or inexpensive themes that can do this with built features (I think I tried this in Atahualpa with a plugin called WP Loop) but haven't really found anything yet.

  28. Javiertn   May 9, 2011 at 5:16 PM

    I think the problem is the number of post i have to writte to appear in the spaces… the page day per day work better. I must writte many post.

    thanks for the theme.

  29. Thileep   June 1, 2011 at 1:41 AM

    plz.. tell anybody. how to add a video in slider? i can add video but its not show on slider.

  30. Marissa   June 1, 2011 at 4:30 AM

    Was just researching to make sure this theme is still available, and to see if other users had come across what we're experiencing – we've got it installed, but strangely, none of our images (excepting the company logo) will show…

  31. Marissa   June 1, 2011 at 4:45 AM

    Hold the phone – we've figured it out. No need to post or read my previous response. Thank you!

    • Osomotley   June 11, 2011 at 10:22 PM

      What was teh solution? Im having the same problem. No images showing up in the slider, even when added as a feature image.

  32. Sabin   June 25, 2011 at 8:27 PM

    Download link is not working

    • Mehmet   June 25, 2011 at 8:50 PM

      Please try again Sabin. It should work now

      • Sabin   June 25, 2011 at 9:33 PM

        Working 😀 thx

  33. Freddiewit   June 26, 2011 at 1:53 AM

    Hello guys,

    I have used WordPress themes for the past 3 years and none had come close to this (not even paid ones).


    Can anyone please guide me on how to change the background colour. I already changed the background image but that only affected half of the page downwards.


    • Mehmet   June 26, 2011 at 2:17 AM

      in styles/active style ifle remove all these three lines

      <code>background: url(default/bg_secondary.jpg) repeat-x;</code>

      <code>background: url(default/bg_secondary.jpg) repeat-x 0 100%;</code>

      <code>background: url(default/bg_secondary.jpg) repeat-x 0 100%;</code>

  34. Maxx   July 1, 2011 at 3:25 AM

    First things first, let me thank you for creating such a fluid theme and making it free!

    I've not seen a more engaging theme anywhere!

    Like the other commenters, I am wondering where I can find out how to

    get videos to play in the slider.

    Do I need to become a client to do that?

    It's literally the only missing element to my blog. Am I just overlooking something?

    Please let me know.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!


    • Mehmet   July 1, 2011 at 4:06 AM

      See this tutorial Max

  35. Rafael   July 7, 2011 at 12:41 AM

    Congratullations!!!! Really good theme, beutiful design and easy to use!!!

    I don't know if it's just me , but I'm having probling with the thumbnails. I don't know why but it seems that they can't find the image it comes with a broke link.

    Well hope you guys can fixed this problem soon!

    Many thanks for this amazing template!

  36. Rafael   July 8, 2011 at 6:23 AM


    just wanna to say that I solved the problem with thumbnails. The problem was with the server 000webhost and for those who need the solution is here
    many thanks gabfire for these amazing theme!

  37. Atif   July 14, 2011 at 6:44 PM

    Nice theme but I am getting problems to generate 404 page, the theme is not generating 404 page and there is no 404.php on the theme folder as well so I created one but still not able to generate 404 of removed posts/pages/tags etc.

    • Mehmet   July 15, 2011 at 5:48 PM

      404.php was intentionally left out of theme, so the not found pages would redirect to homepage. However, we will update SnapWire to our latest framework with its next release and include 404 page as well

  38. freskirinore   July 15, 2011 at 10:04 PM



    • Charlie   July 18, 2011 at 12:38 AM

      Thanks. Yes, it will always be free.

  39. JasRandal   July 17, 2011 at 8:39 AM

    I'm getting a blank when a bad link comes up. Not being redirected to the homepage. Anything I can do on that, while we wait for the next release!

    Snapwire rocks!

    • Mehmet   July 18, 2011 at 1:45 PM

      We released 0.5 which includes several fixes. Please update the version of your theme

  40. Suraj   July 20, 2011 at 11:59 AM

    Nice theme, I would like to now hot to adjust the header image in this theme, I am having some difficulty with it..

  41. Sheen   August 2, 2011 at 10:20 PM

    Thx a lot Gabfire! Theme is awesome!

  42. Zaaynab Le'Von   August 12, 2011 at 10:33 PM

    This theme is better than some of the paid ones I've seen. I was online searching for hours upon hours for a theme that had everything I wanted – when I found this one my face dropped because I couldn't believe such a well-designed theme was absolutely free – thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I have a slight issue and I believe it might be with the 000webhost service I'm using. I created my own website and everything on my own so there's probably something I didn't do that's causing this. I'm just doing test posts right now to make sure everything works out before I put up the actual content of the site. The pictures in my posts are showing up fine but there are no pics on the homepage – what to do?

    • Mehmet Ozek   August 12, 2011 at 10:57 PM

      Thanks for nice words. Check this page please. But I believe you should better change your hosting company.

      • Azhar Nadeem   January 25, 2012 at 11:06 PM

        Dear mehmet
        I need your help regarding Problem stated in a comment below and also sent you an email

  43. VBK   August 15, 2011 at 8:12 PM

    Hello Memhmet Ozek and Patel ,

    I like the theme and it's advanced magazine style look up.I have installed it without any trouble . Will get back to you after a few days.

  44. Ryan Nielsen   August 31, 2011 at 2:12 AM

    Love the theme. I've figured out how to change the size of the search bar but how to I make it so that it's on the right side of the page and not in the center?

  45. Abdulkadir   September 8, 2011 at 8:08 AM

    Mehmet Karde?im Türkiye'den san?r?m. Türk?e sormak istiyorum. Teman?n demosunda bu slayt ekran?nda video t?klamadan direk ana sayfadan ?al???yor. Ancak ben siteme bunu bir türlü uygulayamad?m. Nereden yapmal?y?m?. Slayt video i?in nereden yüklemeliyim?

  46. Gerard   September 8, 2011 at 7:45 PM

    Hey, thanks for this theme. It is amazing! But I have one question. If I change the default header image and I upload another, the new header has not got the H1 tag. What can I do to solve this in a SEO-friendly way?

    Oh, at the moment, I've made a conditional in php (if is home) show the H1 tag, and this tag is hidden using CSS. But I am affraid because Google could take my blog as a black hat. What do you think? In many blogs there is the H1 tag hidden using CSS, such as Mashable or Problogger. Thanks!

  47. Grumpy   September 10, 2011 at 6:03 AM

    It took a little while to set up.. and there's sill a couple details I haven't figured out, and a couple I have, I just haven't done them yet, It was the first time I ever set up anything except basic Blogger..

    I'm very happy with it, I plan on using it on two other sites. I get compliments on it all the time, The only reason I don't get on Gabfire's affiliate program is because inside of a week 10 of the other site owners I blog with would be using it too.

  48. gabriele   December 29, 2011 at 11:57 PM

    love it, and will use it. the best template I ever used and believe me, I was checking out hundreds for my blogs.

  49. Mario   January 5, 2012 at 7:43 AM

    I love your template. It’s very stylish, complete and useful. The only I personally don’t like too much is that I can’t do a custom crop on the images I use as thumbnails. Is there a way I can do that?

  50. Coni Grebel   January 22, 2012 at 2:27 AM

    I like a lot of what I see and hear, and I’m test driving the theme right now before I make it live, but I’m having some issue I hop someone can help me with. I’m trying to help my students use this theme for our school newspaper, but creating a site is a new experience for us, and without being able to find documentation particular to this theme, we’re a little lost. I too have had problems adding videos to the feature slider — one of the elements that originally drew us to the theme. We also wanted to use some of your other page templates, but I really can’t figure out how to do that. How can I apply a template to a new page that links to the front page? In the front page main containter, can I change the sizes of the columns or of the containters? And the home page sections that link to categories — is it possible to place a widget in one of those areas? Is there printed documentation somewhere that can help us troubleshoot … or is there a way for your clients using this free download to also join the gabfire support forum?
    Thanks for your help.

  51. Azhar Nadeem   January 25, 2012 at 10:15 AM

    This is absolutely a wonderful theme. I am having a little problem which is as under.
    1. Posts are not aligned in Top Content section. Image size is the same but excert size is different and it disturbs the alignment.

    2. Certian posts does not get summary and thumbnail when shared on facebook and networks while some others do really fine.

    So far no help in this regard

  52. Angel   January 26, 2012 at 3:09 PM

    Beautiful theme!!!! I’m having a bit of trouble though. When I try to edit the config info (theme options), Im getting many notices:

    Notice: Undefined index: name in /vservers/abc/htdocs/wp-content/themes/snapwire/inc/admin/admin-interface.php on line xyz…

    Can could be the problem? I have tried disabling all plugins and reinstalling the theme twice but no dice.

    Please advise.

  53. Angel   January 26, 2012 at 3:16 PM

    Moreover, the errors I am getting (I suppose) are preventing me from seeing the final elements in each of the theme options pages b/c I cannot update any of those pages (general settings, navigation, categories, etc). There’s no submit button at the bottom of either of those pages and no way to update the data unless I try to d o into the db… Thanks

  54. Angel   January 26, 2012 at 3:58 PM

    Never mind…Yeah! I reinstalled 3.3.1 wordpress and your theme and made sure all plugins were disabled/deleted, started from sratch and it works like a charm. I’ll definitely sing your praises! Great job GabFire! Going to tinker around with it now. Fab job!

  55. Angel   January 27, 2012 at 4:58 AM

    Ok, you can ignore the 1st two comments. I’m having problems with the thumbnails like the others above. This is in reference to the images for the slider. I don’t see an easy want to find the path listed for the images. The link above that someone else gave to mitigate the issue is not working. Any advice is much appreciated.


  56. Abiiba   January 30, 2012 at 10:26 PM

    I love the theme design. However, if you look at my page and scroll down, you will see several “uncategorized” boxes. Behind the scenes, there are four sets of each. I cannot delete any of them. How can I remove the duplicates?

    (By the way, my posts and pages are not yet public – I made them private until I’m ready to launch the site)


  57. Coni Grebel   February 2, 2012 at 5:35 PM

    Ok I know this sounds like a ridiculous question, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the media bar working. Other than that, my students and I love this new theme for our school newspaper website. Can you tell me where I can find a tutorial concerning the media bar?

    • Mehmet Ozek   February 3, 2012 at 4:24 AM

      What exactly is your issue with mediabar Coni? It display entries but does not slide? On theme control panel -> under the categories tab make sure to select a category for Media slider – Front page section. You also need to set a number of entries for media bar on same page.

      • Coni Grebel   February 6, 2012 at 5:35 PM

        Got it! Thanks! Now look at my next problem below. It’s got me stumped.

  58. MrSlim   February 5, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    I like the structure of this comment.. can i copy it’s css? or do you have a theme that uses the same comments.php code?

    Also i’d like to suggest an alternate position of the avatar per comment. like first comment, avatar shows on the left side, next comment avatar shows on the right.

  59. Peter   February 6, 2012 at 5:15 PM

    Sorry, this theme needs php5? thanks

    • Mehmet Ozek   February 6, 2012 at 6:29 PM

      You need WordPress in order to use thia theme. And precondition of WordPress is to have PHP5 installed on your server.

      • Peter   February 7, 2012 at 5:00 AM

        Thanks Mehmet. Changing my server php. Congratulations for you great themes.

  60. Coni Grebel   February 6, 2012 at 5:34 PM

    I love this theme! But I’ve submitted questions before and not received any answers. I’m hoping this time someone can help me because I really have exhausted everything I know to do.
    Yesterday I added several things to the site, and somewhere along the way, all of the fonts changed to a bold italic style. Some fonts even changed from red to gold, and some changed font size. It’s driving me crazy. I’ve tried several different approaches but cannot seem to fix the problem. I’m surprised at how fast that took my website from looking extremely neat and aligned to downright messy. The font seems to be inherited from somewhere, but I’m not sure what that means, either. Before this, my fonts were the same as the demo site.
    Can you help me make this change?

    • Coni Grebel   February 7, 2012 at 10:31 PM

      PROBLEM SOLVED! The changes in fonts must have stemmed from a specific video we had uploaded. Things are beginning to look up. I still have a few font issues, but nothing like before. Once again, this theme rocks!

      How do I change the fonts on the main navigation bar? And what font does you demo site use in the body? It’s so clean and streamlined.

      Another question — How can I place a white border around the thumbnails in my featured slideshow? Things are a little dark in that area for me and I think that might help.

      AND — how do I get rid of the FOOTER1, FOOTER2, FOOTER3 labels in the footer area?

    Hi there!
    Love your theme, but having the same problem as Angel had with saving Theme options. How can this be done? Your theme si lovely, but being not able to edit the options makes it rather useless to me.

    • Mehmet Ozek   February 7, 2012 at 11:51 AM

      Dear Igor, as we wrote above on this thread, we do not have official support for SnapWire and we do not provide support via comments. The only place where do we provide support is our support forums which is dedicated to our premium members only.

  62. Coni Grebel   February 7, 2012 at 11:34 PM

    One more — One of the problems that has remained since I got the fonts issue corrected is an alignment issue in the sidebar 1 container. I have social media buttons there, and they moved from appearing horizontally to lining up vertically.
    Can you help me with this?

  63. tradenet   February 26, 2012 at 10:55 AM

    Anyone else having issue with this theme loading slow?

    • Mehmet Ozek   February 26, 2012 at 1:41 PM

      jQueryTools cdn seems to be down. That is the reason of problem. You can open inc/theme-js and remove this
      wp_register_script(‘jquerytools’, ‘’, array(‘jquery’), ”);

      and this line

      We will release v0.8 to fix that problem

  64. Peter   March 3, 2012 at 9:16 PM

    Hi Mehmet

  65. Luigi   March 18, 2012 at 11:10 PM

    This template is awesome ! The best I ever had ! I just have 1 little problem and it’s the same than Coni Grebel:

    How do I get rid of the FOOTER1, FOOTER2, FOOTER3 labels in the footer area ? I searched everywhere but never found

    Teşekkür ederim

    • Mehmet Ozek   March 19, 2012 at 8:28 AM

      Just add widgets into footer zones. Go to admin -> widgets -> and move widgets into Footer1, Footer2 and Footer3 zones.

  66. Luigi   March 19, 2012 at 9:37 AM

    Thank you. I did it but I still have the blocks where it’s written FOOTER1, FOOTER2, FOOTER3 bellow of my 3 widgets.

  67. nega   March 23, 2012 at 6:26 PM

    merhabalar. Arama sayfalarında genel bir hata farkettim. mesela bu arama yapıldığında sidebar altta çıkıyor. Ayrıca bcrumb iki tane oluyor. teşekkürler.

    • Mehmet Ozek   March 25, 2012 at 3:05 PM

      Tesekkurler Nega, soyledigin hatalari duzeltip temanin yeni surumunu yayinladik (:

  68. Atif   April 4, 2012 at 3:01 PM

    I had 0.7 version of Snapwire Theme and it was not generating thumbnail using Timthumb option and I upgraded to the latest 0.9 version, hoping for the fix this time but it is also not generating thumbnail using Timthumb. Haven’t you tested Timthumb before releasing theme?

  69. Sandra GG   April 20, 2012 at 10:44 PM

    Hello, first or all, this theme is AWESOME. The only problem I have is that the innerpage slider doesn’t work! I did activate it and it was working fine then suddently it stopped working and now all I see is the manual navegation and the arrows, do you know what’s happening??

    I can’t read any of the threads on the support forum. I got an account but everytime I want to login it says my info is wrong (and I’m sure it isn’t) or that I have not privileged access. Do I have to pay?

    Please, I need your help, this is driving me crazy 🙁

    • Charlie Patel   April 21, 2012 at 9:39 PM

      Hi Sandra – The support forums are only for premium theme owners. You could purchase support access. As for the site issue, it wouldn’t happen all of a sudden. It’s likely that a plugin (turn them all off to check) or added code is causing the issue.

  70. Carsten   April 25, 2012 at 3:38 PM

    Does anyone have an answer to the question how Videos can be added directly to the slider?

  71. APNA JAHANIAN   May 11, 2012 at 8:17 PM

    great theme design, specially for games blog I think.

  72. Yusuf   May 12, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    Mehmet hocam bugün durduk yerde timthumb sorunu cıktı sitemde.

    A TimThumb error has occured

    The following error(s) occured:
    Could not create the index.html file – to fix this create an empty file named index.html file in the cache directory.
    Could not create cache clean timestamp file.

    Query String :
    TimThumb version : 2.8.10

    Sanırım index.html dosyası oluşturamıyor cache dosyasında.. Tüm izinler bormal timthump.php dosyasıda güncel..

    Nasıl çözeriz? yardımcı olursanız sevinirim..

  73. Socializer   May 14, 2012 at 4:33 PM

    This theme really offers all the functions I was looking for – except for one thing: I miss Pinterest in the Social Media widget. When will you include it? Any chance for an update?

    • Mehmet Ozek   May 16, 2012 at 7:27 AM

      We may add it with next framework update.

  74. Nithin David Theme   June 2, 2012 at 7:15 AM

    Hat’s off for u guys 4 this mind blowing design and work .and thanks for making it free

    i got an issue with the slider

  75. Justine   June 25, 2012 at 2:30 PM


    Can you give me the size of sliders for the images??

    Thanks of lot,


    • Mehmet Ozek   June 26, 2012 at 11:58 AM

      Try 16:9 ratio Justine

  76. Sharon   August 2, 2012 at 2:53 PM

    Hello. Thanks for the great theme. It has been working well, but I recently noticed a blank space at the top of the theme. I’m using the default.css on Is there a way to fix it?

    • Charlie Patel   August 2, 2012 at 6:42 PM

      @sharon – If it wasn’t there before, then it’s most likely caused by a plugin. Deactivate all of them to test. If you’re a premium theme owner, feel free to post this on forums as well and we can have someone dig into it if that doesn’t work.

  77. Juhi   August 5, 2012 at 6:26 AM

    This theme is not working properly in chrome browser, especially the slider

    • Mehmet Ozek   August 6, 2012 at 9:17 AM
      Just checked with Chrome and slider seems to be working fine on our end. Can you please see if you can reproduce the same issue on theme’s live demo page?

  78. Coni Grebel   September 20, 2012 at 10:07 PM

    I’m also having problems with the slider in Chrome. Actually, even the demo’s slider doesn’t want to work in Chrome. The smaller posts and photos to the right of the featured photo don’t show up at all in Chrome. I’ve tried from several computers for several days now. Suggestions?

  79. aeroporika eisitiria   October 26, 2012 at 4:05 PM

    Great theme! i could use it in my airline tickets site!

  80. Tor H   November 22, 2012 at 12:30 PM

    First – Thanks for sharing this great theme for free! I do respect not bringing support issues to the blog, but testing Snapwire I have two questions – which surely is meant to be covered in the documentation.

    1. I seem unable to create photo (multimedia) galleries, I guess the process is obvious (I have added relevant cat. ID to the Media Category Template) but still…can you adwise?

    2. The Mainpage media gallery slider does autorotate, but when it gets to the end, it stops, not starting over again (like the Featured Slider). Is there a setting to get it to (auto)continue?

    I am soon going commercial with a site and will then be glad to sign up for at least one theme&support. I think your themes stands out from the crowd. Great work!

    • Mehmet Ozek   November 22, 2012 at 1:13 PM

      Hi Tor,
      1- Can you give us your site url and the ID no of category that you entered into theme control panel?
      2- inc/script-init.php replace this

      with this

    • Tor H   November 22, 2012 at 1:14 PM

      Oops…Re. my comment above – adding a new page, there is no “Media” page template avail. in the dropdown template list.

  81. Tor H   November 22, 2012 at 2:36 PM

    Mehmet – thanks for responding.
    I replaced (line 28) in script-init.php:
    $(‘#slides’).slides({circular: true,
    (tried both with and without a space before boolean)
    with the previous, but it does not seem to work.

    Re. 1. I noticed there is no “media” page template (file), so I guess its not possible to show photo (/video) gallery without using that page template. Sorry for not reading the documentation thorough enough in the first place – will you be adding that template?

    I am testing on localhost, so unfort. I cannot give you any site url

  82. aykut   January 10, 2013 at 11:50 PM

    hi all

    How can I download it ? There isn’t a link anymore.

    And is there anyone to explain how to use menus primary- masthead ? I coulnt use them and theme is automatically put my cateogies on the menu.


    • Mehmet Ozek   January 11, 2013 at 12:01 PM

      The link is fixed, please try again Aykut. As for links you need to use custom menus.

  83. Sandrineve   January 21, 2013 at 9:13 PM

    But recently whenever an author saves a post as pending review it shows on the front page.
    Any suggestions?
