    1. Hi,

      To create slides, please create pages with featured images and select those pages for slider from “Appearance > Slider”. Then from “Appearance > Front Page Settings” tick the “Activate Slider” checkbox to display slider on front page.

      If you want to display this slider on Blog Posts listing page go to “Appearance > Blog Settings” and tick the “Activate slider on blog” checkbox.

      Thank You.

    excelente trabajo del tema, pero lo e instalado y me gustara saber como instalar el demostracion u configuración ya que no puedo dar con la configuracion completa del mismo.

      1. Hi Sergey (and Pubudu, if you can help!)

        I’m having this same problem – how did you solve it? Thank you in advance!

  2. I am now trying to get the copyright comment on my page and remove the homage to the wordpress theme. The copyright comment appears on the preview page but it does not appear on the life website. Can you give me instructions on that?

    1. Hi Tarra,

      Please remove the whole text and save it. Then re write the text and save. Check if it is work now. I also have seen this text issue with the WP customizer.

      Thank You.

    1. Hello Dustin,

      You need to install and activate the Jetpack plugin in order to work with those widgets. Please read the last part of the documentation if you need more information.

      Thank You.

  3. Hi Pubudu,

    now after I’ve successfully created the slider on the frontpage I would like to go on with the areas below the slider. Did you use widgets to get the three columns or is it something gridbased? Or do I have to treat it as a new page adding it to the “home” page and inserting widgets to get the result as it looks on the Enliven demo?

    I would appreciate any suggestions, Thanks in advance.
    Best regards,


  4. When I try to have a featured picture on the home page it comes out small unlike the large header in the demo site. What am I doing wrong?

      1. I have run the plugin and the slider works fine now. May I know what was the issue?


  5. Hi,

    I want to change bullet in my posting which is using ENLIVEN Theme.
    I’ll use “ul class ” in my posting like this:


    in my css file in wordpress

    I’ve already put this file below in my css:
    .entrytext ul.pos li { list-style-image: url(“http://domain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/check-square-o.png”); list-style-type: square; padding: 3px 3px 5px 10px; }

    But it doesn’t work.
    Can you help me to solve this problem?


  6. Hi Pubudu,
    Thanks for this great wordpress theme !
    Do you have the intention to create a “team” widget on the business template page?

  7. Good day,

    I’ve downloaded the theme and installed it, as well the jetpack…
    I do not see the slider option under Appearances. Is this option only available for pro?
    As I read and understood, it should be available for the one I’ve downloaded as well?

    Please advise.

    Thank you,

    1. Hello Riaan,

      Please go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Slider in order to set/edit the slider.

      Thank You.

  8. Hi Pubudu,

    I’m using the grid page template. I would like to hide the description of the pages dislpayed (It displays breadcrumbs too).
    Easy way to do that?

    Thanks in advance,

  9. hi,

    could you suggest me how I can adjust responsivness of front slides?
    When I browse page on PC it looks awesome.
    While I browse page on mobile, the pictures on slides are cut on sides (left and right).
    I woud rather that sliedes scale automaticly to the size of screen even if it will be very small.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Waleerat,

      I am sorry it is not possible to it directly. But you can accomplish it by doing a small code edit. If you want to help on it please send me an email. I will provide the code for you.

      Thank You.

  10. Dear, I downloaded the free Enliven theme for testing and there are only 5 Widgets. The site speaks 7 Widgets. Enliven is missing: Testimonial and Enliven: Portfolio. How can I fix this?

    1. Hi Almir,

      You need to install jetpack plugin in order to work with those two widgets. Please read the documentation for more information.


  11. Hi, We had to restore the site from an older backup (same theme), but suddenly now the images on the blog are stretched. Some images are missing and we are currently replacing them, but they are all stretched.
    Also, some thumbnails are just not refreshing in the media section of the site.
    After regenerating the thumbnails as some sites mentioned, it still doesn’t solve the problem of stretching or displaying thumbnails. Some said that it must be a theme issue, so I am reaching out to hoping you can help me fix this.


    1. Hello HB,

      I see images only in two blog posts. They are not stretched. However log says your images are not loading. If you are using jetpack “Serve images from our servers” option, disable that and see if all the images are loading.

      Thank You.
