      In the style.css file, locate: font-family. Then you can change the fonts. Please use child themes to make the changes, otherwise your changes will be lost with updates.

        Could you tell me how can i do it? The problem is that the one of the fonts do not have my language special letters: ł, ó, ć etc. There is a lot of “font-family” in style.css Which one is responsible for menu on the top? There is a problem.

    I’m having problems seeing my content with the black background. Is there a way to change it? I’ve changed the homepage, but haven’t seen any other settings for color. i love the theme, it’s perfect for our biz. Just need to work out the color thing and we’ll be golden. thanks for your help!

    When creating a child theme to add an additional social icon I noticed that the file header.php uses get_stylesheet_directory_uri() to find the image source. This then looks in the child template image folder instead of the parent template for the social images. I have found that by changing this to get_template_directory_uri() for the parent images I can have my new icon located in the child theme without copying all images in to the child as well.

    I am not an expert and there may be a better way to do it but I hope this helps.

    Like your theme, however the slides change is a bit too fast. I know how to edit css and php, however this slider is a challenge so far. How can i adjust this?


    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      The settings for the slider are present in the custom.js file located in the js folder. From there you can change the value of the pauseTime to something higher.

      BTW, the slideshow pauses when you hover over it. So, mostly for a genuine reader the default settings are fine.

    Is it possible to change all pages/post and categories to full-width. (every single page) I know i can do it manually but there is an option to do it in one go?

    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      There is no support in the theme to do that. But, here is a quick trick that can save your time a lot.

      Go to All Posts Page. Select all the posts, and then click on Edit. From here you can change property of 20-100 posts at once. :)

      1. Raks

        Ok, thanks for ad vice. Thats works perfect for pages but when i try to do the same think with posts i can’t find that option.

  5. Anthony F

    I am looking to make the slider images smaller as they dominate the page. Any suggestions on how to make the Slider Images slider. I’ve tried uploading images that have smaller dimensions but the theme then forces the image to be stretched.

    How can I change this?

  6. Jonathan Bro

    Thanks for the theme. It works pretty well, but my smartphone isn’t the displaying the page nicely. Do you have any tips or ideas on what I can do to improve it for smartphones?

  7. Sylvain Paradis

    Hi and thank for your work. I really appreciate it. I dont find how to have the date on top of the post instead of “2 days ago”. I also want to translate that in french but dont find it in the files.

    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      Please use the tribbiani.pot file in the languages folder to translate the theme. I will add better support for translation in the coming updates, though. I can not help with moving the Post Meta section to top.

          1. Sylvain Paradis

            Hi again! Thanks for the 1.1.2 version. It’s very nice to work with. I did the translation of the .po files and it work well. But it does not translate the ” 5 days ago” in the home page and the post page. But it work for the attachement page. But anyway, in what file and line can i do this change with the css editor instead? I just dont find it.

          2. Rohit Tripathi Post author

            That functionality is implemented using a Javascript. To make the change you will have to edit the js/timeago.js file. If you do not understand, then just erase the contents of that file. But, do not delete the file. This will then display the date in standard format: 14 November, 2013.

    Great theme, love it very much!
    One question – on the page I have always 10 entries with pictures which looks weird, you have 6 in your demo – also if the headlines spans over 2 lines the entries ae not of equal length beneath each other, is there a way to fix it?

    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Reading

      From here you can change the no. of posts displayed in your front page.

      And the auto adjustments of posts, when the title spans over 2 lines is a feature of the theme, namely masonry layout.

  9. Jerome Darnell

    Excellent theme. Really done very beautifully.

    Many thanks, Mr. Tripathi; this was just what I was looking for.

  10. Jerome Darnell

    One question I have:

    Short of creating a child theme, is there a way to change the text under the site title (in your Tribbiani pic it says “just another wordpress site”).

    I’m using a black background and hoping for white (rather than grey) text. Can’t see where I’d be able to control the sizes or colors of the text. I’ve tried in the style sheet itself, but I must have been modifying the wrong area.

    Still, it’s such a perfect theme I want to use it : )



  11. Katrina

    Hi, I’m pretty new to WordPress, so please excuse any stupid questions :)

    So 1) How can I make the text in the sidebar (any text not the titles) a brighter/lighter color? Right now it’s medium-dark grey text on dark grey background, so not ideal.
    And 2) How can I remove the “Leave a Reply” section below each of my pages?


  12. need help

    I have a separate page for “Blog.” I want the image slider to show on the home page, but not on the blog page. I only want my blog posts to show on the blog page. How can I disable or keep the image slider from showing up on my Blog page?

  13. Sylvain Paradis

    Thanks, it work fine for me for the translation with that file.

    The demo site shows an instagram icon, I have looked and looked and cannot find where to enter my instagram info, obviously I am not looking in the correct spot!

    I am trying to add code to the header and footer sections through the Basic Settings area for Tribbiani Theme. I have a code provided by another site for a music widget but your theme keeps clearing it out instead of applying it. How can I add code to the theme in the header section? Thank you! Great theme by the way!

    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      The code can be simply added via the sections you are trying to. The code will be rejected only if it contains malicious components. That section is generally to input style, script or meta tags. If you still want to go ahead and place the code, please do it from header.php file.

  17. Tim Pettiford

    Excellent theme! We are using it for a website theme and would like to add the business phone number to the header for each page, any plans to make this an option in the future? BTW, our website using your theme is not published yet.

      1. Tim Pettiford

        Thank you for responding. I now have a challenge, I am using constant contact’s Jazz Blue form on the sidebar, unfortunately they do not provide a means to change the background color of the input fields (they seem to be transparent).

        Is there a way to change the background color of the sidebar so that the input text will show while entering the first & last name and email address? Or is there a way to disable transparent backgrounds?

  18. Carlos

    HI there,

    Urgent: got 48 hours!

    JustHost is upgrading to PHP 5.4, and when I go to cPanel and change from the current PHP 5.2 (Single php.ini) to PHP 5.4 (Single php.ini), the website disappears and an error appears:

    [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Please advise whether Tribbiani is PHP 5.4 compatible, and if so, what should I be doing to get the site back in WordPress?

    I love your design and really don’t want to change it. Please advise asap as I have 48 hours left until they change over to PHP 5.4!



    1. Rohit Tripathi Post author

      All our themes are upto PHP 5.5 Compatible. So no need to worry. Just wait for Justhost to do the update. Nothing would happen. Also, make sure that you use the latest version of WordPress.
