  1. Hi Rohit,
    I have downloaded Synapse and would like to know how to use the theme from the downloaded zip file in my WordPress.

  2. bad, bad bad
    Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\Genial\wp-content\themes\synapse\framework\theme-functions.php on line 90

  3. Love the theme, even more so with my custom css, only one thing I can’t resolve, how would I go about added a search box in the very top nav area?

    1. Oh Wow!! I see the modifications you have made to this theme.
      This theme does have a search button besides the social icons. But I think you’ve disable it.

      Anyway, To add a search form to top bar, go to Appearance > Editor > header.php
      Look for div with id top-bar and add the following snipper somewhere in it. I am sure you will be able to style it.

      < ?php get_search_form(); ?>


  5. I think I figured it out. Those are actually “page” options. I have to make them private in order for them not to show up. If there is another way Please let me know. Thanks!

  6. Hello, Like and am designing a website with your theme, a couple things:
    1. how do I get rid of the search button?
    2. How do I make a media photo enlarge when someone clicks on it?


    1. For the search icon, add this to custom css

      #masthead #search-icon { display: none; }

      When someone clicks on a post, it automatically takes you to the post page with enlarged photo.
      Or you are talking about photos in the post? For that you can try a gallery plugin.

  7. Not compatible with the current version of WordPress? Category links are throwing up an error when clicked on, “Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_categories() …”

  8. Excellent job, I really like it. As soon as have got more money I will probably ask you to change some few thing. But for the moment everything’s working very well.
    Thanks a lot

  9. Hi Rohit, lovely theme…

    Question for you, please: I am trying to replicate the format of the homepage

    The area at the top, where there are boxes to other pages (but not dated) – how did you create those so that there are X number along the horizontal?

    When I’ve tried to do it from the Main Slider (RT Slider) part of the customise, it just gives me one HUGE picture and title, rather than the neat row of boxes on your version.

    Any help you can share would be greatly appreciated 🙂

    Thanks for the UK.


  10. Hi Rohit,

    Love the theme!

    Wanna ask is your Synapse theme have a feature to show “related post” below the every single post I create? Thank you.

  11. Hi Rohit, i really like the theme.

    I have a question for you, how to make the Featured Posts slider become under Main Slider (RT Slider).
    Because right now it’s the opposite.
    Thank you

    1. I am sorry, I did not understand.
      You want to input your own data for featured posts slider. If so, thats not possible. It fetches data from Selected posts category only.

      1. I’m sorry if my english confusing you.
        What i mean is the position. Can the position switched?

        Right now the position is :
        – Title
        – Featured Post
        – Main Slider (RT Slider)

        Can i make it become :
        – Title
        – Main Slider (RT Slider)
        – Featured Post.

        Thank you

        1. HI Adikal,

          To switch the positions, you will have to edit the header.php file from Appearance > Editor

          At the bottom of the file, you will see line(s) of code which determine the position of the sliders.

          Switch those lines as whole, with each other and your job is done 🙂

      2. Adikal is asking how to switch the positions of the RT Slider and the Featured Posts slider. If both are activated, The Featured posts slider appears above the RT Slider. He’s looking to make the RT Slider appear above the Featured Posts slider.

        Currently, with both activated, as you scroll down the page, the RT Slider shows first, then as you scroll down further, the Featured Posts slider is shown. He’d like to have the Featured Posts slider appear first, then the RT Slider to show under that as you scroll down.

  12. Hi Rohit,
    Thank you for the theme!
    Two questions for you, thank you.
    1) #masthead #search-icon { display: none; } at me for some reason does not work. Can I remove the button in any other way?
    2) How to change the background color of the text in the post?

  13. @rohit – okay, thanks for the message above… i thought it would a simpler task and i’d missed a checkbox somewhere 🙂

    Thanks for the reply.


  14. RT Slider doesn’t show call to action button. any solution?

    2ndly, is there any way to permanently show post title?

    1. Currently, Synapse theme doesnt support Call to Action buttons. I will add it though.
      Permanent Post titles are not possible right now. But I will surely consider it for a future update.

  15. Hello Dear
    I love Your Theme i using your theme on my site i face i little problem i slider all images are not same width and height how i can make same size of all slider images can you please tell me and when i use your RT slider the slider take image’s total width and height i want to get slider same size for all images by default values

  16. Nice theme with lots of adjustment options. I noticed a problem on page showing category list or tag list on small screens (ipad upright, but not on ipad horizontal or mobile). On small screen (bootstrap col-sm-) sidebar overlaps post list in stead of being positioned underneath list, like on extra small screens.

  17. Hi Rohit
    I have downloaded this theme right now. I would like to know how to remove My account and Cart options from the top. Since I havent started with ecommerce I dont want them on my blog.

  18. Hi Rohit,

    You template is the best! 🙂

    There is one thing I would change. Can you tell me how you can change the size of thumbnails on the home page (Featured Posts Slider). I would like to place the book covers. I can not find it in the CSS 🙁

    Please help…

    1. Go to Appearance > Editor > Functions.php
      Find synapse-thumb. And Edit its dimensions to whatever value you want.

      After doing so, make sure to regenerate the thumbnails.

  19. Hi Rohit, I am a real newbie to WordPress. I am using this theme with beaver builder, I love it. I am trying to increase my page speeds. I had great page speeds (98/100) before converting to this theme but now I am getting lots of issues (62/68). The main one above the fold –…4.5.0/css/font-awesome.min.css?ver=1.7.8. I know it is just comes up with this theme as I changed to others and increased my page speed and this query doesn’t come up. What to do I have spent five days now trying to fix. Can you help??

    1. Hello,

      We do not load font-awesome from
      We use a bundled version of it. Please check which plugin is loading the bootstrapcdn version of it.

  20. Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to change the color of the skins?

    1. It will be possible with the pro version. Right now, I can take a few requests. So let me know what colors you want I will add it to the free version in a future update.

      1. Hi Rohit. I love the theme – except for the colors. Would a simple white with a small amount of complimentary blue (like the 305d7b you’re using) be possible?

  21. Hi there, I’m using your theme on, but no matter what I try, the background image will not display. I go to the custommise menu and can change the logo, tag line and perform all the normal edits as per normal wordpress themes

    But when I select a background image, it appears for a split second and then is gone.

    Is this something that happens a lot?

    Really appreciate and enjoy your theme otherwise.

    Please help.

    1. Hi, This is a full width theme. It does not support background image.
      Try adding this to the custom css to see if background works.

      #page { max-width: 110px; margin: 20px auto; }

  22. Hi Rohit,

    I’m testing your Synapse theme. So far, I like it, There’s something I can’t do though: How do you force the title of a post to appear on the thumbnail without the user having to hover over the thumbnail? I want the titles to always be visible, if possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Add this to Custom CSS

      .synapse .out-thumb {
      opacity: 1;
      transform: translateY(-20px) scale(1.1) rotate(-2deg);
      -webkit-transform: translateY(-20px) scale(1.1) rotate(-2deg);
      -moz-transform: translateY(-20px) scale(1.1) rotate(-2deg);
      -ms-transform: translateY(-20px) scale(1.1) rotate(-2deg);
      -o-transform: translateY(-20px) scale(1.1) rotate(-2deg);

  23. Hi Rohit,

    I have a 2nd question for you, if you can help with it. I’m trying to stop featured images from appearing at the top of my posts, but I want them to remain on the homepage, which shows posts that readers can click on. I’ve searched online and tried several things, but none of them works.

    Here are the two code options I tried. I placed them in the custom CSS area. They didn’t have any effect:

    .single-post .attachment-post-thumbnail { display: none; }

    .single-post .post-entry .big-preview{ display: none !important; }

    This is the non-code method that I tried, which also did nothing. The problem here is that the menus indicated aren’t part of this theme, and I couldn’t find an equivalent section:

    Appearance > Theme Options > Template > Single Post > Featured Images > OFF > Save Options.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Oh Boy! You should have just Read the FAQ in the theme description above. One of the options in the FAQ solves exactly the problem you are facing. In the FAQs, look for “How to hide Featured images on posts?” and your problem will be solved.

      1. Thanks, again! I didn’t remember the FAQ was there. That CSS did the trick!

        This is a wonderful theme, and your support is fantastic!

  24. Hello,
    I installed this theme, I want to add a facebook like box.
    I copied the sdk javascript code from facebook in the header.php of the theme as they said but when i create the widget it doesn’t appear. Could you help?

    1. Hello,

      Please do not edit files, when you have a better alternative available. PLUGINS!!
      There are over 100s of plugins that let you add a Facebook Like box widget. Just search and install any plugin you like 🙂

  25. Hi, I love the theme.

    I was wondering if there is a way to get the Title, Logo section at the top of the page to be smaller. I know how to change the logo size itself, but I seem to have a lot of empty space. Also, is there a way to edit the background color from black?

    Thank you!

  26. Thanks for this great theme. I have tested so much themes, but this is now the best for me !! Thank you a lot.
