  1. Thank you for your help.

    I try to change the text “read more” on each button on all my page. Where I can do this ?

    All my page are in Business Template model.

    Thank you very much for all the help you give to us ! :)

    1. If you are talking about read more buttons in business page widgets go to widgets.php(inc/widgets.php) and find “Read More” and replace it with your text. But when you updating the theme that will be lost again. The best thing is to make a child theme and edit the widgets.php.

  2. Great Theme! Two quick questions:
    I created a slider but when I added the business services widget to the position of Business Template Top Area (I tried all of the positions), the slider will no longer show. The slider page says it is active.

    Also, are you going to add an option for social media icons? I had to use a widget but the placement of widgets is too far down on the page. Any way to place the social media icon widget in the header?

    Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

    1. I am working on a site where I added social icons at the end of the menu. I had to write some code to do this. Let me know if you would like to see the code. I suggest that you create a child theme so that you can modify header.php in a way that will not be overwritten when a new version of THbusiness is released.

  3. Hi !

    I want to know if it’s possible to change the text in the “leave a reply” form at the end of each section on the site and if it’s possible where I can change it in the back-end ?

    Thank you so much for your work and your anwser ! ;)

  4. Hello,

    great theme!!! One question though:

    how can I remove ‘comments’ from pages? (when I go to ‘you can turn oon / turn off comments’, I see different options to edit comments, but it doesn’t give me an option to remove them

    many thanks
    aleksandra

    1. Aleksandr, did you eve get a reply. If I can’t remove the comments section from pages I don’t want to invest any more time into this template more than the 8!!!! I already have. I dont see a ‘page attributes’ dropdown to even pick a business template. Are the instructions up to date, or is this me?

      1. Hi Lindsay, All instructions are up to date. Please read the instructions carefully and setup your site. And sorry for the late reply.

        Thanks.

  5. Hi Pubudu,

    this is the fourth time I’m afraid I’m asking the same question (I already asked twice in September). WIll appreciate a bit of a better customer service as this is getting really annoying. Please see above for the question

    best
    al

    1. > Will appreciate a bit of a better customer service
      How much did you pay for the theme??? It’s free! You cannot insist on “a better customer service” unless you pay!

      I thought about answering your question from Nov 12 but it is not a clear question. When I turn off comments in Settings/Discussion – uncheck “Allow people to post comments on new articles ”
      When you edit a page or post you can enable or disable comments for that page or post.
      If you want to delete existing comments go to the Comments menu in the Dashboard and delete them.

      I don’t know where the “you can turn on / turn off comments” section is.

  6. I tried on a few websites of mine to add the widgets to the home page as instructed but do not appear on either site. I added the services widget to the business template top area and it doesn’t show on the site. I also tried the call to action and recent work widgets and they don’t show up either. Same with the testimonials on the right area. Can you help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?

  7. I like the theme overall, but have a couple difficulties with it. First of all, if one does not know how to write code, should one do anything in the ‘Editor’ section, or just leave it all as it is?

    Secondly, in the ‘Widgets’ section, how do I change the headings from H1 to something else (i.e.: H2, H3, H4, etc.)? As it is now, every time I insert a Widget, the heading defaults to H1, which means my front Page has wayyyyyy too many H1’s for the Search Engines.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best regards,
    Al

    1. I agree with that but if you look at the WordPress twenty fourteen or any other theme, all themes seem to be using h1 tag for widget titles.

      Thanks.

      1. Yes, I know that. But what I want to know is: How do I change it? Each Page, especially the Front Page can only have ONE H1 heading. All the others need to be something else, such as H2 through H6.

        1. You’d need to write a little bit of code (I could write it after Christmas).
          I suggest creating a child theme (or a small plugin) that calls unregister_sidebar() for each of the sidebars and then calls register_sidebar() so that the widget headings are the default h2 (or something else of your choosing).

  8. helllo

    i have a one question. how can i use the horizontal black bar listed at the bottom? such as important link, recent post.. is it a widget?

  9. 1. Is it possible to adjust the height of main page slider?
    2. I would like to set bigger font in top page menu, tried with editor, but no luck so far.
    Thanks in advance for help :)

    1. Hi Karol,

      1.) Yes. height depends on the image height that you put into the slider.
      2.) Make a child theme and change the font-size of the particular element of the stylesheet of the child theme.

      Thank You.

  10. buenas noches tengo 3 preguntas:

    1. para los que no sabemos de codigos HTML como puedo cambiar TH business services widget y poner una imagen personalizada de mi escritorio en vez de un icono de http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/cheatsheet/.

    2. no se si ya se dieron cuenta pero en el TH Business Single Page Widget que es para los post del blog la opcion del boton de READ MORE no se puede cambiar a español, como puedo hacer ese cambio??

    3. segun un comentario que vi arriba se puede personalizar el pie de pagina, pero en las opciones del tema no aparece nada para realizar esta opcion, como puedo modificarla??

    si fueran tan amables de indicarme las instrucciones paso a paso se los agradeceria, muchas gracias existos.

  11. For now I want straight pages, no posts. I am having difficulty removing the ;leave a reply; window that appears on the ‘static’ page I have created. I especially don’t want the ‘blog look’ on the home page. I want it to look as clean as the template and right now it is messy.

  12. I figured it out how to get to ‘business template’. sorry. When creating a page (business etc) need to verify screen options at top and ensure ‘page attributes’ is checked/ticked and then the options become available in window to the right.

    You can also get the options for selecting a static front page under Theme Options>Background

  13. Hi.. I would like to add full page layout on some specific pages and deactivate comment options. Also I have added featured images but how to bring them on front page?

  14. Is it possible to change the colors of this theme? Love the theme but client not a fan of the black bar, are there options? Thanks!

  15. Hi, I like the theme thus far, just had a quick question. I actually noticed that several others had tte same question but I wasn’t able to locate an answer in the thread.

    Is there anyway to remove the “Comments” (Leave a reply) section from the bottom of the pages? It shows up on all of the pages except the Home page which I used the Business Template but on the other pages where I used Default & Full Width templates I keep seeing it at the bottom.

    Thanks

  16. Hi there,
    a very nice built website i have to say.
    Please i’m having a issue with the blog, first i would like to know if its possible to have a full widht blog page without the sidebar and second if its possible to show in the blog only posts of a category blog and not all posts.
    Thanks

    Kind regards

  17. Hello, I have a problem with the principal menu. it’s actually on two lines, while there is plenty of space on the left. How can I fit it on one line ? Which part of the code should I edit ? Thanks

  18. Hi, There is a big wite gap between the slider and the business template top page. I tried to fill it up with different widgets. It is nog working.
    My site: www .psoriasisbehandeling.com

    How to fix it?
    Thanks

  19. Hi, but i do have an other question for this great site. The links in the text are uncollered. This has great effect on your bouncerate of your page.

    Were can I change the linkcolor so it will be noticed by my viewers?
    Thanks

    1. In the editor do to:
      Appearance > Theme options
      Click on the “Custom CSS” tab and add this to the window – obviously change “red” and “green” to colours that suit your site.

      article a, article a:visited {
      color: red;
      border-bottom: 1px dotted;
      }

      article a:hover {
      color: #green;
      border-bottom: 1px solid;
      }

  20. Hi, really nice theme and great documentation!
    But… is there a simple way to turn off “Leave a reply” on pages not using the “business” template or does it need to be done in the php?

    thanks
    James

    1. Sorry, ignore me, “Discussion” wasn’t enabled in the “screen options” so I couldn’t see it.
      I have turned that on and now can enable/disable it per page.

    2. Hi James,

      There is not a simple option to do it. You can do it by disabling comments in each page or editing the php code page.php. To edit the page.php code you have to first make a child theme and remove the comments code there.

      Thanks.

  21. Hello Pubudu, first of all thanks for this great theme! I really love it. However, I have an issue: I’d like the main menu to be displayed on one line only, but it keeps displaying on two lines while there’s plenty of space left on the left side. I have tried various lines of code, but none helped. What can I do to display my menu on one line (i.e. reduce the left margin) ? Thanks for your answer!

      1. I think I found the solution. I’ve added a negative left margin
        .main-navigation {
        clear: both;
        display: block;
        float: right;
        line-height: 50px;
        margin-right: 30px;
        margin-bottom: -3px;
        margin-left: -250px;
        }
