    Hello, I am using the Lifestyle theme and really like the options and lay out, but cannot get the header image to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    1. Fiona

      Hi Crystal, make sure you’ve downloaded and activated the suggested plugin, Master Slider, in WordPress. If you haven’t done this, the header image will not display. Good luck!

    I just updated Omega, and now my entire site based on Lifestyle Shows php Errors! Please help. I took the site offline, People should not see it that way.
    Errors say
    Warning: array_unique() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in /kunden/304358_8021/web/3699437/A3699437/mattegumper.ch/wp-content/themes/omega/lib/functions/context.php on line 127

    (and other lines). Anything I have done wrong?

    Thank you, Holger

      Hi Holger, you did nothing wrong. Please update your omega parent theme. It will fix the issue.

    I really love the simplicity of this theme! However, this theme advertises that it can have a full width page. I have not been able to change this theme to remove the sidebars.

    1. themehit Post author

      You can choose Full Width template per page basis. Not applicable for blog post. If you want to remove sidebar site wide, go to “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and insert the following code

      .content {
      width: 100%;
      padding-right: 0;
      .sidebar {
      display: none;

    1. themehit Post author

      You can activate lifestyle child theme directly to your site

      2. Click the Appearance panel, then Themes.
      3. Click Add New.
      4. Use the Search option and type “lifestyle”
      5. Activate the theme

    I like this minimalistic desgin very much.
    I would love to add social media icons to the header – in the same line as the menu, simply alinged to the right side. Is that possible?

  6. Fiona

    Thanks for making a great theme. I’d like to make the navigation tab font turn bold so it’s apparent which tab you’re on when a new page loads, without having to add an additional header to make that clear. Can you point me to the right bit of CSS style to make this happen? Thank you!

    1. themehit Post author

      Hi Lynde,
      Go To “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and drop this code
      .omega-nav-menu, .omega-nav-menu > ul {
      text-align: center;

    How do I remove the navigation bar from the mobile site…I have removed the menu in custom css but want no navigation on the mobile site also?

    1. themehit Post author

      Go To “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and drop this code
      @media screen and (max-width: 768px) {
      .tinynav { display: none }

  8. Sebastien Debaenst

    Today I posted something on my site, and suddenly there was this huge featured image on top of the article. This is the first time I saw it, but want it to be removed again. How can i do this?

  9. Jessica Kennedy

    Hello. This a lovely theme. Beautifully minimal.

    I want to use it on a site I am working on, but I can’t get it to style the home/front page featured image in the same way as the featured images on the other pages. Is there a way to do this?


  10. Daniel

    Dear themehit-Team,
    we love your simple theme – thank you very much.

    We want to show the active menu and we thought it must work this way:
    .omega-nav-menu li a:active {color: #ff0;}

    But it doesn´t work? Please tell me our error 🙂
    Best regards

  11. Morgan

    We are having a problem where we are posting photos in a post but only the text is showing up on the live site. Are we doing something wrong?

  12. Daniel

    Dear themehit-Team,
    thank you very much for your theme!
    I would like to change only one css-style: I would like a bold active menu-item.
    I thought it must work with “.omega-nav-menu li a:active” – but it doesn´t work :-/
    Thank you very much for an idea!
    Best regards

  13. Linda

    Is it possible to have different language versions on this theme and in this case how to I do that? Currently my website is in swedish, but I would like to have an english version too with english logo, menue etc .

    Thank you in advance!

    1. themehit Post author

      You can use WPML plugin or setup WordPress network mode / multisite for a multilingual website

    I’ve just installed Lifestyle on a client’s site only to discover that it is a child theme of Omega. Will I need to install Omega or will Lifestyle work as a stand-alone theme? If I do need to load Omega, will I need to re-do the content that Ive already loaded into Lifestyle?

    I like this theme but and having a hard time figuring out how to make the static pages into category pages. Can you help me out? thanks!

    1. themehit Post author

      You can create menu item from category, go to “Appearance > Menus”, and select a category from Categories tab.

  16. Chris Hessert

    What are the optimal dimensions for a logo image to use with Lifestyle?
    Is it possible to use a logo image and the text title/subtitle?
    Thank you very much for your work on this theme!

    1. themehit Post author

      There is no standard for optimal dimensions for a logo, just make sure it proportional. By default, you can only use Logo image with Tagline as text. Or you can insert your text into your logo image.

    Hi there.
    I love your theme and it works great with what I want to do. I wanted to ask you if you could help me with how to do something in the header:

    In that row, where you have the text “Minimalist WordPress Theme” I would like to use my address and mobile number. However , rather having them together in one row and centred. I would prefer to make them apart and have an address on left handside and mobile number on the right. Is there a way how to do it? Perhaps a code or something? As I was unable to separate them, given the available scope of adjustment.

    Thank you and I look forward to your reply.


    1. themehit Post author

      That’s not possible because tagline field cannot accept HTML tag, you need to customize the theme or insert your address and phone number into the logo.

    Hi, I chose left sidebar as a template for one page and while there is no space for a left sidebar I do not understand where I can put the content in for the left sidebar / create the left sidebar. Both, your help and your theme is very much appreciated. thanks!

    1. themehit Post author

      Can you post your page url? Left sidebar template page should work with sidebar on the left and content on the right.

  19. Fallon Graham

    I love your design. I just have one question. When I visit the site the feature image is there, but when I click on the post and visit the actual link the feature image isn’t there. Is there a way to keep the feature image?

    1. themehit Post author

      Glad you like it. You can insert the featured image into Post content body (editor) and use post excerpts (Go to “Appearance > Customize > Post > Display post excerpts”) on blog page to prevent double images.

    1. themehit Post author

      You can use any css plugin, or go to “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and drop below code

      body {
      color: #000;

  20. Alan Young

    Hi there, absolutely love this theme .. perfect for our site.

    One little thing though is that I don’t seem to be able to get checkboxes to show up on forms … can you help?

    Many thanks

      1. themehit Post author

        Hi Alan, thanks for your feedback. This issue has been fixed. Please upgrade your lifestyle theme.

  22. Carolina França

    Hello, I’ve been using the Lifestyle theme for a while and I love it, but only now I realized that my Google analytics isn’t working. I was going to put the tracking code again, but I can’t find the tag . I was also going to put a Pinterest pin button on my pictures, but for that I also need the tag .
    Please, help me.
    Thank you.

    1. themehit Post author

      Hi Carolina, I don’t think it’s because of the lifestyle theme. I’d suggest use Google Analytics plugin for WordPress. You can also search Pinterest plugin in WordPress plugin repo.

  23. Colton

    Great theme!

    Rather that show a summary of a post with a link to [read more] to see the whole post I would like to show the entire post each time. Is that possible?


    1. themehit Post author

      Yes. Go to “Appearance > Customize > Posts” and choose “Display full post”

      1. Colton


        I am so sorry for bringing such a silly question; I thought it was a CSS thing.

        Thanks for the prompt response, I appreciate it!

  24. john

    I’d love to hide the menu completely.

    I deleted all menus but a little black dot still appears in its place. Is there any way to completely hide it?


  25. Luis Azevedo

    Hi themehit,

    Beautiful minimalistic theme.
    When I thought I had made all the teaks needed, I noticed the post are showing in alphabetical order and not chronological which I thought was the wp default.
    Any idea why and how I can change it?
    You can have a look here:

    1. themehit Post author

      Your post “A bolacha diferida” is sticky to the home page. You can change the visibility status of that post and they will be chronological.

  26. Chris Hessert

    Hi, I like your Lifestyle theme very much. How can I customize the default Home page to display only the latest posts 2-7? Latest post 1 is displayed in the slider.

    Thank you!

  27. Amy


    There appears to be writing on the top left of my home page and I’m not sure where it came from- is there a way to get rid of this?

    Thank you in advance!

      1. themehit Post author

        Hi Amy, did you figure it out as I don’t see it. Seems it’s not from Lifestyle theme

    1. themehit Post author

      Go to “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and drop this code

      .content {
      width: 100%;
      padding-right: 0;
      text-align: center;

  28. jess

    Hi, I’m loving your Lifestyle theme, but I keep having this problem. When I create an additional page, every time I click on the tab to get to it, I get this:

    Not Found

    The requested URL /the-shop/ was not found on this server.

    How can I fix this? Please help me 🙂

  29. Cassi

    I love this beautiful theme!

    My question: On the blog posts, is there a way to hide the author of each blog post from public view?

    Thank you!

    1. themehit Post author

      You can hide it via CSS. Go to “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and drop this code

      .entry-author { display:none;}

  30. Aladino Debert

    Hello. Thanks for the great template. I have a couple, seemingly simple, questions. First, how can I make a “Home” page that is not really a page, but simply a link to the main domain? In other words, it would take you to mydomain.com instead of mydomain.com/home/?

    Second, is there a way to only have the header show up on the home/mail page? I’d like the posts for instance to take you to a simpler page without the header images.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Aladino Debert

      Ah, I guess I figured out the first question. I created a menu called Home, and that worked. So Home is a menu, but the others are pages. That did the trick.

      Question #2 still stands 🙂 Thanks!

    2. Aladino Debert

      And one more question! How do you determine where your POST go? In other words, I’d like the page called “Blog” to have all posts, but at the moment can’t figure out how. Thanks again.

    Hi there

    I have centred my main menu but I would like to left align the sub-page menu items. Is there a simple way to do this?


    1. themehit Post author

      center align the UL element only, so the li will be left aligned by default.
      .omega-nav-menu, .omega-nav-menu > ul {
      text-align: center;

  32. Amy


    This theme is so great- I’ve figured out most everything, however I am having trouble with my opt in bar being mobile responsive- it just looks like a large blue area instead of a banner- is there any way to make this more mobile friendly? See home page: http://www.marjanharbison.com

    Thank you so much for your help!

    1. themehit Post author

      Sure it’s possible, use this sample css code
      .site-description {
      font-size: 24px;


      1. Wesley Yim

        Thank you! That really helped! Another thing, I’ve been trying to remove the default navigation bar on the mobile theme with no success… what else can I try?

  33. Shivani

    Hi! It is a wonderful theme indeed. I love using it. Just need help with one thing. The image added to the blog post does not show up with the post excerpt even after selecting ‘show featured image’. Am I doing something wrong here?

    1. themehit Post author

      Hi Shivani, go to “Appearance > Customize > Post” and choose “Display Full post”. Select “Display post excerpts” will limit the text and strip all formatting and images.

  34. Nicolet.life

    I love this simple theme! Is there a way to hide the category name at the top of the page? For example, on my website http://www.nicolet.life when you click “.life” in the menu, the category title “life” displays on the top of the page. I don’t want this title to appear.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    1. themehit Post author

      Hi, go to “Appearance > Customize > CSS” and insert this code
      .archive-title {


  35. Susie

    Hi there!

    Thanks you for a beautiful and simple theme 🙂

    Just wondering how I can remove the mobile/tablet version so the full website comes up on phones and tablets please?

    Many thanks!

  36. Dan

    Great theme, however, a small picky question, is there a way for me to move the navigation bar on the mobile version to the top of the page?

    Also how can I change this so on the mobile version the navigation bar says “Menu” instead of “Navigation”?
