  • Thanks for a great theme!

    Is there any way to get more posts, say 12, on the first page than the ten from start?

    Any chance to get three in a row instead of the original two?

    • Sorry thats not possible.

    • What? It must be possible with some tweaking in the code as you solved all other questions and alternatives…

    • add this to your stylesheet:

      #lay1 .post {width: 174px!important;height: 300px!important;}
      #lay1 .imgwrap {width: 174px!important;;height: 100px!important;}
      #lay1 .imgwrap img {border: none;width: 174px;height: auto;}

      and then open up scylla.js from the “js” folder and replace this line:

      jQuery(‘#lay1 .post:odd, #related ul li:last’).css({‘marginRight’:’0px’});

      with this:

      jQuery(‘#lay1 .post:eq(2), #lay1 .post:eq(5), #lay1 .post:eq(8), #lay1 .post:eq(11), #related ul li:last’).css({‘marginRight’:’0px’});

    • Awesome, thanks!!

      Is there something like that to get fewer posts on the first page.. looks odd to have one on the last line.

    • Go to Settings> Reading and select the number of posts per page.

    • Thank you, you are great!

      Was thinking of buying the pro version, but I need a responsive theme. Are you going to make one soon?

    • sorry. no. not anytime soon.

    • ok.. then i wonder if there are possible with toggle for the blogposts on the home page or get them into a jquery popup window. dont want to have to reload the page…

    • sorry not possible.

  • hi !

    towfik, is it possible to change administrator (reply) comments text color and background ? i am using corporate skin.

    • what color do you want them to change to?

  • hey i’m using this theme for a web tech course and it’s my first time using wordpress, how do I make images for the slider? i’ve only got the lite version so am I able to use the header?

    • Go to Appearance> Scylla Options> Documentation to learn how to setup the slider. and no you cannot add header image in the lite version.

    once again thanks

  • Hi. I love the theme. I tried to change the background putting the line
    html body{background-image:url(‘’) center no-repeat!important;}
    in the end of stylesheet, but it didn’t worked. Can someone help me, please?

    • try this:

      html body{background:url(‘’) center no-repeat!important;}

  • How can I change the font size for posts on my website?

    • from you style.css find this line:

      body{background:#f4f4f4; margin:0; padding:0; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:12px; color:#424242;}

      and replace the font-size value from 12 to whatever you want.

  • Is there any way to increase the width of the third column only (the one running down the right hand side. It’s currently too small for 300×250 MPUs as they hand off the side…

    • add this to your stylesheet:


  • Hi,

    I Have A Question: I wanted to know if there’s a way I can Change the “Text/Font” Size in The Slider’s Box That’s To The Right/Bottom-Corner? Great Theme BTW…

    • add this to your styleshett:

      #slider .slider-content h2 a, #slider .slider-content a{font-size:18px;}

  • Hi Towfiq !

    it’s a wonderful theme. good work ! I am using spring skin, pattern 1, and font yanone, But my top menu font size is small like 15 px etc. unable to increase the font size in this font. how can i increase this size to atleast 25 px?

    • Add this to your stylesheet:

      body #topmenu ul li a{font-size:25px!important;}

  • Using Scylla, how do I hide the “tags” in the bottom of the posts for visitors? It’s ugly and space-consuming. Thank you!
