    I added my twitter name and nothing displays. Could you possibly assist me with a reason why?

  • Dylan Pruitt 427 days ago

    The theme is awesome, but I'm having the same problem as above. I put in my Twitter username in the field and it doesn't show on the homepage. I've tried putting it in as "@username" and just "username" and still nothing.

    Are you using the latest elgg version?

    I'm sorry but I don't know when I will be able to deliver an updated version of this theme. I'm sick and extremely busy. Probably around March I will be releasing a new version.

    In the meantime, you can change the twitter username in index.php

  • Dylan Pruitt 426 days ago

    It's all good man. Hope you feel better.

    I'll go ahead and change it from the index.php , thank you.

    Classy theme  allows to post comments in the activity stream BUT they do not show up under a specific photo post [tidypic] - they show in the activity stream but NOT under the specific photo.

    Hey rj, I absolutely love this theme!! I've noticed that my search box stopped working after I've enabled your theme. Is this a known issue and do you know how I might be able to fix that?

    Please tell me how to clear this problem.

  • iionly 334 days ago

    @Manu: you need to disable the custom_index plugin to be able to use this theme.

    I do not get the pages as per images above, that show the slideshow?

  • omaolain 167 days ago

    Awesome theme. Thanks for sharing this. 
    I am having an issue with the Twitter feature though. I've put in my user name with and without the @, I've put in the full url to my twitter and it will not display anything.

    I'm using 1.8.16.

  • omaolain 166 days ago

    one more quick question...I've been all over the template while its in use on a site. What is logo and page5-banner for in the images folder? I don't actually see them in use anywhere.

  • GeoZz 157 days ago

    Thank you very much. This is a beautiful theme! But.. There are some problems.. I cannot register or login. If i login, i will send to the defaulth login page. Can you fix this, or need i somthing to do.

  • GeoZz 153 days ago

    Hi, 4 days ago, i send some problems to you, but i have no reply. 

    If i go to login, i get this error: "actiongatekeeper:crosssitelogin" and i go to the default login page. how can i fix this?

  • GeoZz 148 days ago


    Your theme is very beautiful! But there are some problems with me. The search box is not working. If I type for the URL "www." login will not work. But without the "www." it works. How can I fix this?

  • Pranjal 148 days ago

    @GeoZz the problem is not with the theme it is with your Domain your www should also be pointing to the website..

  • Kepa 105 days ago

    Regarding the search box not being accessible,  for others still having this problem as there seems to be no response anywhere is to look for the css.php file in /search/views/default/search/css.php and add the z-index:

    Search plugin
    .elgg-search-header {
    bottom: 5px;
    height: 23px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    z-index: 20;

  • S.Brady.Hussain 76 days ago
