  • OK Towfiq I.. I just did it !

  • Hi — love this theme! However, I’ve been trying to make a child theme but it’s not working: I get the same problem as in this question:

    The errors occurs in functions.php at line 436. If I comment out the test so that get_template_directory() is always used, that fixes my problem.

    – Ian

  • wow, nice work.

  • Urgent!

    thank you for your wonderful theme. Love it.

    I encountered a problem trying to install a child theme.

    Warning: require_once(/home/slimos5/public_html/wp-content/themes/asteria-lite-child/admin/options-framework.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/slimos5/public_html/wp-content/themes/theron-lite/functions.php on line 436

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/slimos5/public_html/wp-content/themes/asteria-lite-child/admin/options-framework.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/slimos5/public_html/wp-content/themes/theron-lite/functions.php on line 436

    As you mentioned, i copied the “admin” folder from theron theme and pasted it to the child.
    Nothing happening. the same error message pops up.


    • which version of the php are you using?

  • Hi
    I have theron pro lite i would like a nice centered footer menu how do i do that

    • whats your site address?

  • Hello,

    I need your help, I bought theron lite pro, i installed the footer menu but it s placed on the right side, I would like to have my footer menu centered and space between the titles, how can i do that, please help

    Thank u

    • Please let me know what your site address is. thanks

  • Hi, I can’t get the social network icons at the top of the page to appear on my site. As the mouse passes over where the icon is supposed to appear the link is there and clicking on it takes you to the site but the icon isn’t visible. I have a local copy of wordpress and the theme on my computer and the icons appear ok but not on my site.

    • upload the social.png file through Media > Add New and copy the file url.

      then open up style.css and replace this:

      .social ul li a{ display:block; width:28px; height:28px; background:url(images/social.png) no-repeat; text-indent:-999999px;}

      with this:

      .social ul li a{ display:block; width:28px; height:28px; background:url(YOUR COPIED FILE URL HERE) no-repeat; text-indent:-999999px;}


  • Thanks Towfiq but I just tried that but it didn’t work. I also changed the URL to point to the copy of social.png on the server and that didn’t work either. I have inspected other imported media elements on the site and the URL to the image directory I used is correct.

    • The thing is there was a mass hack recently which involves using a social.png file. So most of the host automatically removes any social.png to stay safe. The best way to handle this is upload the image on and use the direct link of the image in your code. Like this:

      background:url(“your imgur link here”)


  • Hi Towfiq,

    I’m expereincing a technical issue with my blog. When clicking on next pages (page 2 or 3) it doesn’t work and always directs to homepage (page 1). I’m unable to see my posts on other sites. Any clue what’s worong with it?

    Thanks for help!
