    Hi, I found your website and themes so magnificient.
    I’d like to try install your theme but this is my first time to know about bootstrap and I don’t know how to configure it.
    and also Which site is the best for your amazing theme anyway? WordPress or Blogger?
    Thanks so much.
    I appreciate your attention.

    Sincerely Xx,

    • hi Raymond,

      Unfortunately this theme won’t work for you on a blogger or WordPress site. Most of the themes here are HTML+CSS only, this means that you should have a hosting and modify the themes by yourself. Some of the themes here have their WordPress version. You can navigate through the option of the right sidebar, click on the WP option, and you will see all our themes containing a WordPress version.

    Hey, I’m trying to work on a site with Bootstrap 3.1.1 and I noticed that your template above works perfectly in IE8, how can I make it operate smoothly? I’ve already incorporated html5shiv, respond.js and have tried other ‘fixes’ as well including meta-tags (like X-UA-comp.. etc.). Any advice would be appreciated 🙂

    Hello! I removed the works sections and moved the social icons to the footer so now I’m trying to make the footer stick to the bottom and give the header image a height of 100%, however it’s not taking any changes on the height. I’ve searched on the CSS but I can’t find the solution. Could yoy help me please? Thanks in advance!

    This theme was working really well for me in WordPress and then the “Select or Upload Images” button under “Homepage Image” on the portfolio post editor stopped working. It does nothing. Any ideas on how that could have gotten disabled? Is there a plugin I’m supposed to have to make it work? I got it to work earlier today and have one image in my portfolio grid.

    I like the theme but I noticed a minor glitch. In the navigation bar for the works tab, Home is underlined. Just move the class=’active” to the Works and Works will be underlined when you are on the Works section (instead of Home).


  23. Adam

    Just wondering if there is code for a dropdown list specifically for this theme? Thanks

  24. Terri

    Could you tell me how to set up that email link at the bottom of the page?
    Thanks, I really like your theme.

    • Where the email address is, put an a tag, followed with mailto: then your email address for the hyperlink. Then when someone clicks on the link it will open in a mail application and send an email to you.

      Please let us know if there is anything else you need!

    The nav bar gets in the way when you scroll down – this needs some work, otherwise it’s a nice simple, 3 page theme. It’s be better if the nabber anchored to the top and took a background color – not too different from how this page works when you scroll down.

    I loved the theme and tried installing it on Drupal. But I am getting this warning:

    “User warning: The following theme is missing from the file system: instant. In order to fix this, put the theme back in its original location. For more information, see the documentation page. in _drupal_trigger_error_with_delayed_logging() (line 1128 of /var/www/html/includes/”

    Could you please help me out?

    I was wondering what type of credit do we need to give if we use your template. The template is great btw.

    • Hello :)

      Hey there!

      You only need to credit BlackTie for the design, the templates are free to use after all! But do tell all your friends about us too. 🙂
      Thank you for the kind words!
