theDawn - WordPress Theme

- Last update: June 22 2015

Warning: Buyers who want to update to v 1.7 or later from an older version please refer to the documentation before updating.


“theDawn” is a powerful all-in-one premium WordPress theme that brings to the table many front-end and back-end features. While working on it, I’ve been paying attention to the design and structure of the theme as well as the options variety and customizability and ease of use. With its 30+ layout options, 60+ built-in shortcodes, and many other features (see features list below) it will make your WordPress life easier and joyful. Since many of “theDawn” features are built-in -some of them are exclusive, it will give you more control over your site, and induces your creativity, take “Mbiz slider” as an example.


  • Ten Skins: dark, light, colorful and what I call “luxurious” styles.
  • Powerful backend option panels: nearly 70 admin options for managing your content, site design and layout.
  • Layout varieties: multiple layouts for: homepage, portfolio, blog, gallery, page, sidebar, footer, and other options. See a complete list of layout variety
  • Three Sliders: Mbiz slider, Nivo slider, fixed image.
  • Mbiz slider: exclusive slider that provides many features and options which are easily manageable through powerful “Slider manager”. Take a look here. You will find more explanation and tips in the documentation. Free slider background images are also included.
  • Five different homepage layouts: two magazine-like layouts which are widgets based i.e easy to manage, blog, normal page which uses shortcodes. Homepage can be given an exclusive sidebar.
  • Portfolio custom post type: for easy management and organization.
  • Portfolio layouts and options: portfolio can be presented in one of seven different layouts, and can be featured in your homepage. It also has video support.
  • Gallery templates: creating a gallery is a cinch and fun with “theDawn” gallery templates. See the demo, and check this YouTube video tutorial.
  • Sidebars: add/remove as many widgetized sidebars as you want and attach them to pages, posts, or portfolio items.
  • Left and right sidebars: align your sidebars either to the left or to the right, globally, or in a given page, post, or portfolio item.
  • Three blog layouts: floated image, full-width image, and disabled image layouts.
  • Single-post optional widgets: “ShareThis” on 10 social networks, about the author, and popular/related posts.
  • Single post can split and can be protected (password protection is supported).
  • Comments: nested four levels deep. Support for comments pagination and avatars.
  • 10+ custom widgets: “theDawn” provides its own widgets as well as re-styled default widgets. Added widgets -for sidebar and footer are: popular posts, flickr -which supports user photos and group pool, latest tweets, contact form, contact info, social networks, google map, advertisment widget, new in v1.5
  • Footer: has three areas:
    • Optional big footer: widgetized and provides 9 column layouts.
    • Optional sub-footer: located inside big footer, and has 2 widgetized columns.
    • Standard footer: at the very bottom, and contains footer menu.
  • WP 3.0 Menus: top menu which has dropdown capability to unlimited levels, and footer menu. In addition to those two, WordPress “custom menu” has been enhanced to become dropdown ready. With WordPress 3.0 menus and theDawn sidebar generator you have the ability to add any menu to any page.
  • Shortcodes: over 60 shortcodes available, all are integrated with WYSIWYG editor in a neat an organized way (you will like it). Shortcodes include but not limited to: lightbox, video, typography, contact form, sitemap, price boxes, tabbed content, column layouts, and more.
  • Sitemap: a shortcode which has a lot of options, it’s simple and highly customizable. See it live.
  • 20 google fonts: new in version 1.5
  • Working ajax contact form: with a spam protection. It’s available as a shortcode to be added in any page, and as a widget for sidebars and footers.
  • Header intro: the area beneath top menu which I call “Header-intro”, it’s optional and customizable.
  • Optional breadcrumbs navigation
  • Lightbox: for single image, gallery, and video. It’s based on prettyPhoto. Could be implemented by shortcodes.
  • Video support
  • Automatic thumbnails by timthumb WP default thumbnail feature
  • Price boxes: implemented with shortcodes.
  • Admin visual editor: WYSIWYG editor is re-styled so content will have similar look to the front-end page.
  • Translate ready: default POT file is included in addition to French and Dutch translations, new in v1.5
  • Browser compatibility: IE7-9, Firefox 3-5, Chrome, Safari, Opera.
  • Cufon font replacement
  • PSD files: of basic design elements are included.
  • Well documented.

Server side requirements

  • PHP version 5 and above.
  • WordPress version 3.0 and above.


What they say

I appreciate your help. PS Love your theme. It’s the easiest theme I have ever worked with!

Dean Petersen – Bought between 10 and 49 items.

Love your theme! Really well designed and its great to see a theme that is so user friendly.
Thank you so much for such a quick reply! I really am impressed and wish more theme creators could be more like you! Please let me know when you next wordpress theme has been published!

Rudi Minelle – Bought between 10 and 49 items.

This theme is awesome . It does what it says it will do. The documentation is clear and concise. Amazingly, for the price you get far more than you could expect and it’s a “HUGE” bang for the buck.

Judy – Bought between 10 and 49 items.

Best WP Theme I have used great work. I look forward to buying more from you keep building!!


You are AWESOME!!!! Thank you for your quick responses. You have completely sold me on not only your template, but your service as well. I am going to refer everyone I know who is looking for a template or site to you. You rock!

Randy Dunn

THANK YOU ! I just wanted to post on your profile that I sent 2 emails, with two different questions, and received very prompt (less than a day) answers. I appreciate that effort on your part. I buy several themes a month for clients and this is by far the best customer service I have seen (and it’s not even required). Excellent!

  1. diwal

    How Can I put the fixed height slider in all pages (not only in homepage)?

  2. pearlwhitemedia1

    Hi when you are on an inner page, the drop down menu does not appear anymore.

  3. jkjacobson

    Is this theme still supported? I built a site using this theme back in 2011 and the client has come to me saying the portfolio section is all broken and their dropdown navigation no longer works. I fixed the navigation by simply updating the theme files but the portfolio section still seems really messed up. The lightboxes no longer work, and thumbnails are not generating properly.

  4. FireworksShow

    Have issues converting blog posts to ‘summary’ on 1.5. I’ve looked through the ‘Theme Options’ and into ‘Reading’ options and set it every way I can think of. Is there a flag I’m missing?

  5. pearlwhitemedia1

    Hi i’ve changed the permissions of my folder for 777 although the thumbs still aren’t appearing. What else could be causing this?

  6. lilouk

    Thank you for this great template.
    I need your help to add “language flag” from qtranslate-x plugin into header part of my homepage.
    Thank you for your help

  7. sofiaferreirasimoes

    Do you give any support?
    First time i need support and there are no answers.
    The last answer here was 3 months ago.
    Are you still active?

  8. sofiaferreirasimoes

    My theme completetly broke after upgrade.
    Changes i made in the theme options panel, only affect some pages.
    Whatever i do the homepage remains the same.
    The layout is wrong.
    I need urgent help please.
    I have a maintenance page active so if you need to see the site, tell me how can i send you a private message.

  11. Lewcfir66

    nice theme thx

  12. zippy1979

    Can an Opt-in form be Added as a widget on a side bar? An opt-in form and video intro in the header would complete this template perfectly. Can you possible add this feature?? I like your is very clean.

  13. doczy


  14. superchris

    Great theme, but one feature i kind of miss is when you use an url and paste it in the custom Image in the portfolio its not shown in full size on top of content when you enter the portfolio item.
    It seems kind of naked just the text and no image.
    Is this possible?

  15. design-spot

    Isn’t something wrong with my theme options panels?

  16. jr0131

    I too am unable to get the slider working in any browser in this current version.

  17. ManuelRuiz

    Hello, I am trying to install Yoast widjet and gives me problems when active, the manager page widjets not work. I tried to uninstall and install but does not work. I need help please

  18. drdarkbr

  19. argos

    Hi, I need to know if I can use ADDthis plugin to track SHARETHIS information with facebook and others but with same style-design you make with the over effect to appear the icons.

  20. paketo

    Same problem as grafter and jkjacobson with the Slide option.

  21. hirok

    I’ve just updated to your latest version but I have to return to 1.5 due to its sticking out of the images from “div” boxes, such as .latest-news-item, .no-title-box-text, and so on, in the content area.

  22. Christina25

    Have you tested this theme on a Unix server? We are having a very difficult time doing this and are being forced to re-write some of the code to make it work, because the files are not formatted correctly.

  23. ecanberg

    i just solve the problem when i read the older posts

  24. Crable

    I have downloaded theDawn theme, but its 1.0.2. Where i can download updated theme 1.5?

  25. tytrischuk

    weird, for whatever reason it didn’t show the percentage symbols.

  26. gulisz

    I’m having a hard time adding the portfolio on the home page of your site, could you explain step by step how to add your portfolio on the home? Thank you and congratulations for the theme.

  27. Christina25

    @ Paketo

  28. tlarkworthy

    Enjoying the theme but for some reason my Pages don’t have a sidebar. I tried adding the primary sidebar in the theDawnPanel, with all possible alignments, I tried creating a dummy custom sidebar, and for some reason it never shows up. The sidebar works fine with blog entries and portfolio entries. There is nothing weird on it, just recent posts.
    Any ideas?
    Cheers Tom

  29. Ulticoach

    I keep getting a fatal error on my site:

  30. lilouk

    I really like you theme
    Before I purchase it, I want to know if it’s possible to add “video” in the Home fancy box ?

  31. siemcreator

    My Porfolio text inner not work! Pls help me

  32. JeffreySummers

    Option Tree had an update…I updated…it broke the theme. I added back the old version…no good. Still broken. help.

  33. alphadx

    Hello Looking for help in setting up and customizing the template
    Email: [email protected]

  34. KittyCanuck

    @ egoyanes – Did you complete the installation steps?
    TheDawn has a plugin that come with it that needs to be uploaded and activated (OptionTree) and a couple things to import before the Slider section will work.

  35. davimedia

    I am having problems uploading the theme. Which files do i upload?

  36. ldiaz117

    This doesnt work on Wordpress 3.3 huh? UGH

  37. zelot66

    Anybody can guide me on how to set a menu for ‘Gallery’ and ‘Portfolio’. I managed to put on ‘Home’ and ‘Contact Us’ on menu bar at front page. These two require http link which I find it easy.

  38. wsound

    thank you for quick reply one more thing my contact form says Could not instantiate mail function.
    and how do i get my home about us on the home page but keep the slider.
    Thanks for a great theme

  39. jeromemarsan


  40. josephriba

    I have seen the screen shot of what the slider manager should look like however it does not look like this on my site. I am not able to add more than one slide. Something seems to be missing. please contact me.

  41. happycreative

    sjoerdreijnhoudt says

  42. mycityunsigned

    Is there a way to change the colour of the buttons?

  43. jasonstom

    like the template….any idea what I am doing wrong? I know it is something simple I am missing. It is strange. I am using static pages from the WP settings>reading. One is set to homepage and the other is my blog for posts.

  44. swimmingfungus

    Love TheDawn. When you set up a Gallery on a page, is there a way to place a Heading above the gallery itself? I have tried with no success.

  45. medianexus

    need some help, the blog page is showing full post instead of blog excerpts like i have checked off in the reading settings….what am i doing wrong here?

  46. Cheavor

    I’m setting up this theme for a client. When I use the Mbiz slider it’s not Auto-Rotating, and I don’t see the little circles below the slider to jump to each slide.

  47. senang

    I’d sent this email to Mbiz – but haven’t heard back as of yet – so I thought I’d post here for anyone who has figured out how to manipulate some of this stuff. Particularly, I’m having some difficulties with formatting the blog properly.

  48. senang

    How the heck do you get the “List” shortcodes to work!? I’ve tried everything! Can someone paste an example here? Thanks!

  49. yra3000

    So I guess its safe to say mBiz is no longer supporting this theme….

  50. stefanschuur

    My drop down menu is disappearing while using Safari the latest. Even when I visit your demo site, the menubar isn’t always visible:

  51. toralb

    can the theme be installed on more than 1 domain?

  52. danweb


  53. yorks

    sorry the last line above should have read “isnt a discussion panel”

  54. djacquin

    I too cannot get the options tree activated…?

  55. sebscholz83sk

    hello – at first my english is not so good – google is helping me

  56. TechTremor

    Have issues converting blog posts to ‘summary’ on 1.5. I’ve looked through the ‘Theme Options’ and into ‘Reading’ options and set it every way I can think of. Is there a flag I’m missing?

  63. Lewcfir66

    wow i guess support for this theme has gone down the drain..

  64. triggerfish

    Awesome Theme! I love how lean, clean and organized the theme files and code is!

  65. rbanat

    Hello, Ive tried to upload this theme to wordpress but it keeps failing because it says the style.css sheet is missing, can you please help me figure out how to fix this?

  66. webpuzzlemaster

    is there an option to make the portfolio page url be a permalink? on the demo its not on permalinks..

  67. Dasher39

    Just to follow up, I cannot see the “OptionTree” menu, just isn’t showing up.

  68. argos

    Hi, people, I hope mbiz could send me the .XML to import, but while that happen, is there anybody of you that could have a working .XML file so that I could import into my WP installation and see the theme working exact the same way it is in this LIVE PREVIEW demo site of thedawn ?
    Thanks in advance to everybody that could help me on this.

  69. marcofama

    dear all

  70. altobelli

    Hello mbiz,

  71. jkjacobson

    Does anyone have any idea why my portfolio images won’t load? They are simply the rotating load icon. Oddly if I click the rotating load icon it WILL launch the lightbox and display the image… Anyone know what’s going on because I cannot trace the problem…

  72. vadims

    I like it.

  73. hubscot

    I’m not sure where to add the logo…and what size it should be…not working for me. Bound to be simples. Help?!

  74. jkjacobson

    First off, I absolutely love the theme. It is one of the better themes I have seen in awhile! I am having 3 issues though (only 2 of which are likely quite simple)...

  75. zbuking

    Hi mbiz,

  76. finchkelsey

    MBIZ !! where are do I add a blog page please!

  77. hirok

    Thx kylen20!
    I also believed that jQuery of the WP3.6 caused these problems.
    I hope the author of this theme would solve this issue…

  78. paketo

    No matter what I try, I cannot get text to wrap around a photo in a post. Only the first paragraph wraps. The second paragraph appears BELOW the photo even though there is plenty of space for it beside the photo.

  80. Israel

    Nice job. Just one thing … I need to change some English words to Spanish words, for instance SEND MAIL by ENVIAR MAIL etc. How can I do that?
    Also, how can I get the Goole HTML code for the Google Map?
    Thank you so much for your help.

  81. kniemeyer80

    Beautiful Template but I have one issue. On your preview it shows multiple styles of the portfolio. I was under the assumption that I could apply more than one portfolio style to my website. In the Option Tree it appears I can on select 1 Portfolio style? I need to use the sliding pages, one column w/ sidebar & three column w/ sidebar within my website, is this possible or am I only limited to using one style? thanks…

  82. erictlee

    i’m not able to view “excerpts” of my posts or pages in the blog. is this feature not available or am i missing something? thanks!

    2. What path are you using for your image?
    In most cases using the full path to your image should work. For example, you would input http://www.mydomain/blog/wp-content/uploads/image.jpg (or whatever the path to your image is). However, some hosts do not allow the use of http://www. at the end of a URL . In this case you should use the relative path to your image, and remove your domain from the URL . In the above case, assuming your blog is hosted in the /blog/ folder, the path to your image would just be: wp-content/uploads/image.jpg.

  87. CarlMagnusNorden

    How can I add attachments? it is only for text.

  88. Ruzoid

    Hi, I like your work.

  89. Jstar

    Is there a special screen I have to go into to turn on the sliders? I’m just getting a blank screen on the sliders? thank you

  90. victorkill

    Another question!

  91. Graphis


  92. -david

    Hi, really nice theme.

  93. jasonstom

    Great! that fixed it. Is there anyway to use a sidebar on the front page without using the magazine-like layout? I want to be able to use some widgets in the body. The full width layout does not allow me to do that.

  94. Jstar

    I’m fairly new to all this and was just wondering will this work with 3.1? Excuse my ignorance, I just downloaded it and prolly should have asked that first.

  95. designroom

    Please add a purple skin, it is missing in this awesome theme! Congrats! it is a beautiful work.

  96. aleximprota

    I am interested in purchasing The Dawn, but I saw an earlier version, that to post photos and videos, I had to upload the files and write the way then post the images, and an unfriendly process, even if you have multiple images or pictures. This has been modified? for example, in the same place I set up lightbox, can I upload photos?

  97. markmoe

    @dasher39 – add this under the “HTML” tab on the editor (next to “Visual”)

  98. fleche59

    Very beautiful… I will buy it. But i want to have an information about the slider.

  99. artdenye

    Very nice theme ! If I charged it, can you help me to make images slideshow in the blogpost , because unfortunatly I dont find it in shortcodes ?

  100. lazyhoofer

    Trying to add titles to each image in lightbox gallery mode….. however it dose not display like it does when you just insert the image into the post.

  101. xtinctsurfer

    I have sent 3 emails to the author over the course of January discussing the issues with the drop down menu not working in several different internet browsers (chrome, firefox, explorer) and have YET to receive an email back with any type of explanation. Has anyone else received any feedback from the author. I might bring it up to Themeforest.

  102. Bob4u

    I purchased TheDawn and got following problems:

  103. onthemarkmedia

    For some reason, I can’t import the thedawn_options.xml
    file into the optionTree widget.

  104. jeremygoldenberg

    Hi i’ve changed the permissions of my folder for 777 although the thumbs still aren’t appearing. What else could be causing this?

    Hello mbiz,

  117. 2cool

    Great work mbiz! The theme is great!

  118. lazyhoofer

    Thanks you rorysmith2 !!! you really helped me out tremendously.

  119. sjoerdreijnhoudt

    This is for all the people who are having trouble with the thumbs.
    This issue really can be solved by changing the permission of the ‘cache’ folder in wp-content/themes/thedawn/lib/scripts

  120. Benjamin_R

    do you have a boxed version?

  121. ronaldoescudeiro

    Hi, great theme! I have an issue with the contact form, it’s doens’t work, the, nothing happens when i try to send a message:

  122. sjoerdreijnhoudt

    Having same issue.

  123. miteshpuri

    Hey Guys,
    M planning to buy this theme. Just wanted a clarification. Has the support for this theme died? The author is not replying to any queries sent via his profile neither does reply to comments over here…

  124. Kristy

    Hi there,

  125. MindaugasLT

    Amazing theme.

  126. gr8

    nice. consider adding a “To The Top” button or link so people can click on that to go to the top of the page when they are down by the footer area.

  127. RealThemes

    Best WP Theme I have used great work. I look forward to buying more from you keep building!!

  128. kit

    Ciao @marcofama,
    About the .po & .mo files, you can download them free from here:

  129. dehayst

    Nice theme. Jam packed with features!

  130. marcofama

    hey mbiz,
    hope you’re doing great mate.

  131. alexandreB

    A client of mine purchased your theme and I have to translate it.
    I can’t find .po nor .pot files in the .zip file, is that normal ?

  132. superchris

    Is there anything i could do to add the features i ask about? Just point me in the right direction You added tags in portfolio so i hope its possible to get those listed and get the same functionality as tags in blogpost. regards Chris

  133. gfisoftware

    Are there any plans to make the theme responsive? I just installed it and sadly the theme does not re-arrange itself to fit phones. im a bit disappointed as i took it for granted that it should work

  134. Israel

    I need to add two more fields in the contact form page, such as “Town” and “Province”
    How can I do that?
    Thank you.

  135. gregfuller

    Hi, have you tested theDawn with Wordpress 3.1 rc4? I guess I’m really asking is it 3.1 ready ? It’s a bit early I know—just asking.

    Thanks for the response. My point regarding the portfolio image is that it would be perfect if the image also would appear in the single portfolio page.

    Thank you.

    Hi MBiz,

  154. stoff75

    Hi, I purchased this theme a long time ago. Now I’m wondering if it’s possible to get that slider to work on any page, not just the blog page?
    No matter how I configured it I can’t get it to show on any other page than the blog page (as seen in the live preview) – I want to put it on the landing page which is a pure information page, not news/blogs. Is that possible?
    Regards // Kristoffer

  158. lilouk

    Hi Mbiz,

  159. CaSundara

    Hi, you didn’t respond to my previous comments. The slider has no button to add more images and the columns can’t be used from the top of the posts or they mess up the archive and homepage displays.

It used to be if I click a photo from the featured section it appeared in a nice javascript lightbox. Now if I click it it just takes it to the photos url straight up. ugly…Same for videos, used to appear in a nice lightbox, now it goes right to the youtube page. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

    What about an HTML version? Any plans?

  191. hubscot

    Sent you two emails today – hoping to hear from you soon ;o) Thanks Sx

  192. CaSundara

    Second question… How can I change the page numbers to sit on the right and how do I enlarge the font for the page numbers only? If you look at the following link you’ll see they are a bit tucked away on the left and may not be noticed. On the right would be better, but if not, bigger will do.

  193. KittyCanuck

    Ok, so apparently the fakepath thing is a “feature” in IE8 and has nothing to do with anything.

  194. smboyce

    This theme is really disappointing. I wouldn’t recommend it. It looks pretty sleek, sure, but there are tons of bugs.

  201. CarlMagnusNorden

    Just a clarification!

  202. D_Brugge

    I see that the Tribulant site has listed you as Do Not Recommend because theDawn “doesn’t follow WordPress conventions and standards to integrate with the framework. As a result, it causes conflicts.”
    Have you yet, or will you be addressing the issues that they site?

    i Hi all,

  216. Era_Bal

    hey mbiz i only can see the background and the searchbar of your theme. i have wordpress 3.1

  217. jkjacobson

    Where would I find the code which links a “Portfolio Title” (Using 3 columns with normal text) on the portfolio page to the portfolio item post itself. I want to remove it. I don’t want people to be able to click on the name and find the post. I merely want the PORTFOLIO page to show the feature image and text with no way of navigating to the the actual portfolio item post itself… I’ve been looking but cannot seem to find it…

  218. swimmingfungus

    Ive been using this theme for a long time now and have just update our website with the latest version. It seems Nivo Slider will not let me use the slide navigation buttons when the effect is set to “Fade” but it will if set to the default “Random” effect? Can you help? I need “Fade” with the slider button s working.

    I’m not in charge with the theme support, please consider it as free as it is. I just want to help where I can.
    Sorry for misunderstanding about the translation files, I thought you were talking about the core its self. Indeed the language folder from the the theme is empty, but modify yourself the need strings. It’s not much. I translated, moded and publish this theme in 1 day.

    Yes hirok, it seems the theme is incompatible with WP v3.6 – I’ve just wound back to v 3.5.2 as my dropdown menus weren’t working and neither were Cufon fonts. I’m sure there is other stuff too.

  273. Adyyda

    hello. First of all, congratulation for this great theme. I like it and i may be using it soon for a project.
    I would like to know:
    1. if the main page can be set up to be like in , meaning that i need 10-12 categories (business, movies, economy etc) and each to show latest 5-10 post in that category. Layout should be chosed by me, to display all 10 news with image and small description or just the first with image and description and the rest of 9 with image and title. So, how can i do this in your theme, if i can.
    2.if in any of that categories i can add rss flux or similar concept to show news from other websites, and this without going to the source website -so the news be readed in my own website

  274. xberserker

    Have you had anyone use this with BuddyPress?

  275. mmmiro


  276. jkjacobson

    One other thing I forgot to ask. How hard is it to modify the login button code (I love the design) to direct you to a the wp-admin dashboard (as if you used /wp-login.php). Having to still manually go there seems like an unnecessary step?

  277. saratoti

    Hi! I purchased your theme and can’t get the slideshow to work. I have 5 slides with image links and it only shows the very first photo and doesn’t rotate or do anything at all. Not sure what to do, I’ve looked through the Javascript but I can’t find any problems. It’s just not working?

    i notice how mbiz has replied to someone looking to buy it but not to some one that has bought it and needs support!!!.

  297. mpaine

    Where is mbiz?? I see other people are having trouble contacting the author regarding support issues, me to, i have sent two emails in the last 6 weeks requesting support and heard nothing. Has anyone been lucky enough to get a reply from mbiz? looks like ill be looking for another theme and asking for my money back at this rate. NOT GOOD

  298. 666666

    The theme is truly all in one and targeted most of the audience taste , the theme is already awesome but if you implement another option to run slider in categories with the slider going with the topics of that particular category or choosen and enable/disabling option for the people who doesnt like the slider to run in category pages will be both sexy and awesome. And which will make it complete bussiness and magazine theme and flexible for people to shift to either of the purposes and looks too .
    Thank you very much !

    O pacote não pôde ser instalado. Nenhum plugin válido foi encontrado.
    A instalação do plugin falhou.
    Como eu instalo este plugin?

  332. mmjaeger

    Does the theme fully support child themes?
    is it possible to have the featured images from regular blog posts in the slider without too much modifications

  333. LindleyJ

    Hi. Purchased your theme for a client and I am happy with the results so far. However, my client wants some minor changes that are not part of the framework. I don’t want to mess with your framework code but instead would like to use a child theme setup so nothing will be changed on the framework. Does not seem to be working. Is there something special I need to do when working with Option Tree? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi, need to know if you provide the .po and .mo files to translate it to spanish.

  336. cdn_k3v

    I really like this theme, I am wondering if it is possible to change just the background on the pages? I like the idea of when you change a skin color everything changes, but I don’t want the dark/light backgrounds, i would like to have an image span the width of the page.

  337. tlarkworthy

    Just scanned mine too, but it reported the site as fine. I downloaded this theme early Jan.

  338. pastorlane

    Has anyone had a problem with the pictures wrapping?

  339. pichgooshti

    I want to purchase this theme, but before purchase, I should test it. so I temporarily found the dawn v1.0.2 just for test.

  340. p360group

    yea what is your email or skype if you have one so we can fix the problems, i love the theme and I can’t wait to get it to work

  341. ldiaz117

    Still no reply to my question from over a week ago. Whats the deal here?

  342. traffography

    Loving the theme, but can’t get the timthumb to work properly, get these errors, any ideas?

  343. Jack-Jumper

    When I click on the WYSIWYG options that come with the theme I get a page not found error? Any Idea what’s wrong? The buttons that come with the default wp install work fine.

  344. mmmiro

    Potential buyers of this theme should know that it has a couple of serious limitations;

  345. owentrier

    Awesome Theme!

  347. cerebis

    Just so others don’t waste an entire day like I did, this theme conflicts with the fw-vimeo-videowal plug-in. I don’t know which is misbehaving, but when the fw-vimeo-videowal plug-in is active, the portfolio page slide does not work.

  348. OnPro

    Hi. First off, great theme! – just bought it.

  349. obismarck

    I’m sooooo stupid! As written in the documentation i had to install the plugin “option tree” first… Sorry

  350. JimmyLA

    Actually, nevermind what I wrote before. I just now read a few comments up where you said it’s 3.1 compatible.

  351. kylen20

    Contact form issue.

    Dear mbiz,
    hope you had a good new year’s beginning.

  356. skane

    This theme really stands apart in terms of design and options. Any plans to launch a separate support forum for your themes? As you say, it’s tedious to handle support here.

    Got an issue with spacing when inserting a picture with text. See here:

  360. graphicdesign

    I love the theme but need urgent help, how on earth do I show all the portfolio pages in one portfolio index page like you have on your sample. there is nothing in your instructions that shows how to make a main portfolio page. The drop down in pages has gallery, but no portfolio….urgent I get this done this weekend, please help asap.

  361. ronvandegraaf

    Great theme… Same problem with the slider here:

  362. view360

    Hi There
    Great theme
    Can I change the image for each page
    on the header-intro

  363. grafter

    Thanks for the update. Shortcodes for lists do not appear to be working?

  364. alsubhi

    Very nice theme.

  365. Kram

    Hi Mohammad
    Thanks for the prompt support. Greatly appreciated.

  366. pokerworx

    I found a bug when using the magazine full width home layout, when you want 6 or more items it puts 1 thing on the second on the right leaving two spaces to the left and skips to the next line. You have to manually edit the css .featured-wrap-fullwidth to add a height : )
    Awesome theme I love it.

  367. altobelli

    I’m unable to populate my homepage with my posts. I followed the instructions:

    Which Fonts do you use for the Logo?

  370. razzinteractive

    Is it possible to display a PAGE in the featured content area on the homepage? How can I do this?

    I have having the same problem as tjfisher. I cannot turn off comments on pages. I emailed you about this and you replied

  374. rklesc

    I am having a problem with thumbnail images showing up on the popular post section of the home page. The image is present as it appears in the post and the same url is displayed in the ‘Image’ section in thedawn custom panel below the content. All I see is a wide/narrow empty box with an icon for missing content.

  375. srm5446

    Hello everyone. I think we are all disappointed that the developer has abandoned us. I was able to find a fix for the dropdown menu problem.

  376. swimmingfungus

    Is there a way of placing text above a gallery?

  377. ldiaz117

    Which file do I edit to remove the “READ MORE ” link on the homepage content box area (not the slider but below the featured content)?

  379. pgameiro

    Hi Mbiz,

  380. fleche59

    Your template don’t work. I’m using wordpress 3.0.5.

  381. insomniacmunky

    The “Read More” thing needs to be fixed….I have other themes that this works in. The “Page Break” icon does not exist FYI

  382. p360group

    I didn’t received the email can you please forward it to my other email which is [email protected]

  383. stellaire

    Just a note to say that some are a bit nasty with the author.

  384. Hemophilia

    i buy thedawn themes but m getting error kindly give me solution

  385. kylen20

    @bradg120177 – All the backgrounds shown in the demo are included in the theme. You set the background image in the the slider manager and you can change it for different slides if you wish.

  386. Graphitos

    Hi, I recieve this errors:

  387. rorysmith2

    FIXED : After spending about 6 hours digging into the code, I fixed the MCE plugins that were displaying a “Page not found” error. The issues was that the popup box displays the MCE form in an iframe. To work, it needs to load the wordpress environment and it was not able to get to all the files correctly to do so. I had to go in and edit each individual PHP file in each plugin in the theme. Line 3 of each file contains a variable to to require wp-blog-header.php. I changed that to wp-load.php and all is working now.

  388. mmmiro

    What is the procedure to update to the latest version?

  389. jkjacobson

    How do I get my BLOG page to display BLOG items… also I assume the same concept applies to set my Portfolio Page to display Portfolio items… I am obviously missing a simple step as there don’t seem to be page templates meaning it has to be set elsewhere… but I didn’t see it in Option Tree either.

  392. Alfamesteren

    Hello i have a quick question before i buy, if i choose a static page as frontpage will the slider still show in the frontpage or will it go disappear ?

  393. nonprofitpartners

    I just purchased “Dawn” and when I go to upload into WordPress I can not activate becuase “Broken Themes, The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.” I downloaed again and uploded using FileZilla to ensure the upload. Same Result. Does the Author or anyone else have any thoughts. Really need to get this up today.
    [email protected]
    JOe Johnson
    PS I am sure this is a simple issue and not a publisher issue but do need to know

  394. toddoddbot

    I love this theme and I’m eager to get it working but I’m having some issues with the contact form as well giving me the “Could not instantiate mail function.” error. I’ve contacted my hosting provider and told them what you told the other user who was having this issue which was “mail() function” but they can’t seem to work it out either and are saying the that function is already turned on which is a total bummer. If you have any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

  395. CaSundara

    The above still applies, though I’ve found a way around it for now (am posting this in case anyone else has the same issue). If I keep a paragraph at the top of the post without columns and add the read more break immediately after that then the issue is corrected, but it would be nicer not to have to do that, as i wanted an image at the top of column two permanently. Hopefully just it’s me being stupid and you’ll tell me how to fix it.

  396. marcofama

    dear mbiz

  397. josephriba

    Hi, Each time I update thedawn theme the side bar moves to the bottom of the page, it will no longer stay to the right. If I go back to the old version of the theme the problem is corrected. Do you know what might be causing this. Thanks

  398. Dasher39

    How do you insert a table into a post? I cannot see an option for that?

  399. Enigma1

    Have a look at your code through your browser, you’ll notice that the sidebars are written first… a huge mistake if SEO is important to you. This theme killed my internet traffic. I wrote the author about this and he never replied… I highly recommend NOT using this theme.

  400. alejometal

    Hi buddy Im interested in your work, but I want to know if this theme comes with the demo site, (demo data). is important for me if it comes with it, or if you can provide it to me after I purchase.

  401. SimplybyDesign

    I can’t get the the Portfolio “Three Column with Inner Text” to display the images (circle just keeps spinning).

  403. cstew68

    is there a way to reorder the portfolio items?

  404. Dobrodukh

    I bought it, and did everything according to instructions. But nothing so set up and could not. It’s sort of a joke or a hoax?
    No button “Reload XML ”
    Options Panel – empty
    Sliders – do not add
    Theme Options – Blog – not found….
    This is a very bad joke!

  405. kit

    Use AstroGrep to search between the strings of multiple files.
    Locate the desired file, make a backup, modify and check how it works.

  406. yorks

    Just purchased this theme, installed it ok and most of it seems to work, BUT I have just checked the documentation and it says there should be an OPTIONTREE menu option in admin.

    Hi there,

  412. Battlecat

    I can not figure out for the life of me how to install the slider.

  413. jkjacobson

    Is there any way to have the “Three columns with normal text” portfolio option display an excerpt rather than the content itself? The ideal situation to my above problem would be to keep the link to the portfolio item in tact have an excerpt display (or some sort of caption) and then have the gallery directly in the portfolio item post itself. I have managed to find a compatible plugin that works and have modified it to match the existing gallery look and feel however anything I put on the post (including galleries) shows up on portfolio page as the “normal text” making a mess.

    I thought I saw an option to change the text on the “Read More” button used in the slider. Does anyone know where this is or how I can changes this to “Contact Us”?

  428. kylen20

    @jeffrey – try using W3 Total Cache plugin instead. That’s working fine for me.

    I’m with Kelsey, I’d like the blog “page” to show summaries instead of the entire post. Maybe you can’t do this since you have it constructed to use categories…??

  445. FelixDaHousecat

    I absolutely love this template! However, I have a few little “niggles” which I wonder are because I am using Wordpress 3.2.1

  451. altobelli

    I just installed the theme and having lots of issues. For starters I’m getting the following error:

  452. veranos

    I see that the slider works with video, does it work with an opt-in form from aweber?

  453. CrossFitDeerPark

    I have static pages that I have comments disabled (not allowed) but at the bottom of the pages in the white area before the footer it says “Comments Closed”. How can I disable this?

  454. RealThemes

    I am not sure if anyone else has mentioned this but there is no way I can reordering a galleries images?

  455. JeffreySummers

    @kylen20 That works – deleting the overflow. Very appreciative for the suggestion! Thank you.

  464. colinjbrowne

    I can’t make anything work at all here.

  465. jenfromal

    is there any way in the future to enable an option for the_excerpt() for slider description.. the reason for this is I would actually like to use the slider to display my most 3-5 most recent blogs posts.. perhaps even allow an option to pic a post as a slider option and have it extract the excerpt, use the featured image as the main image and so forth…

  466. markmoe

    I have had great luck modifying this theme, and great support from Mohammad (even over the weekend!) Thanks for an awesome theme!

  467. JeffreySummers

    @ markmoe

  468. bschomp

    this is stupid, why can’t i have the slider on a normal static web page. it only works if you have your latest posts radio button checked. That means it is no longer a website. it is a blog. Um help! Slider not showing!

  469. kit

    Hi Paul (@ altobelli),
    Maybe I can give you some hints..

  491. ldiaz117

    I’m trying to setup a link in the copyright text. I added the html in Option Tree and it works but the link is blue (so I cant see it) and when I hover, it is black. Where in the CSS sheet can I edit these settings. The footer settings I found affect the right footer menu, not the left copyright text. This is the standard footer by the way. Let me know. Thx

    Version 1.6.2:
    - According to recent API update, twitter widget is now updated. If you don’t want to go through a whole update process, just replace your lib/scripts/jfunctions.js with the new one.
    - Also, I’ve updated the instructions on updating theDawn from older versions.

  496. kylen20

    @emlynmiles To create the blog you need to set up a parent category such as blog or news, then make sure that category is selected for every post.

  497. zarganga

    Hi Mbiz,

  503. CaSundara

    Hi, sorry to be a pain, but can you help me out again please? If you check the following link (to a category page) you’ll see the blog post I asked about before isn’t showing up properly – there’s an empty column… (title = How do tarot Card Work?) It’s the same story when I go full width and if I remove images completely. It’s the same on the homepage in the latest posts section.

  504. TheBadBanana

    Very, very nice theme – it fits the bill ALMOST perfectly (I wish I would have read the comments section thoroughly BEFORE purchasing so there’s a tad-bit of buyer’s remorse there – but anyway …). Your documentation, while straight and to the point, could be a bit more detailed seeing the many comments being left on the site that could have been addressed in the doc.

    @bob4u The heading and sidebar heading fonts are created using javascript so this could be the problem.

    Can anyone tell me how I update the theme?

    Hello, I would like to remove the frames that appear in the pictures, as I can do?

    Hi There-

  520. jgkastner

    THANK YOU ! I just wanted to post on your profile that I sent 2 emails, with two different questions, and received very prompt (less than a day) answers. I appreciate that effort on your part. I buy several themes a month for clients and this is by far the best customer service I have seen (and it’s not even required). Excellent!

  521. ecanberg

    do you think to update this theme?

  522. veranos

    The support for the theme is not dead at all. I sent Mohammad an email yesterday afternoon and he responded this morning. His contact email is [email protected] It’s a fantastic theme with great support.

  523. runner2009

    Looks like a very nice theme. I have 2 questions.

  524. jghayward

    I was having a problem where the ‘add slide’ button was not showing up on my theme; and some other weird problems related to images not working. I contacted mbiz, the author of this theme, and he helped me to figure out that it was actually some other plugin I had installed that was causing all the problems with wordpress. The theme was working great all along.

    @yorks, I just found it. If you click on pages or posts in the control panel you’ll get a list of your pages and or post. Click “Quick Edit” and you’ll see a check box that says “Allow Comments” just uncheck and you’re good to go!

    Resolved My issue—didn’t activate the theme like I should have.

    Just tried to upload the 1.6.1 update and it crashed my site. Even though I followed the developer’s instructions, there were 409 failed transfers – all related to Option Tree.

    I’m currently, experiencing problems with the jQuery accordion content (gradient_divider). After updating the accordion menus do not stay open on click..

    Hi there.

  534. paketo

    Christina25 – I believe the other font is Nevis.

  535. mommetime

    Excellent product; excellent service… I purchased this product 3 years ago, and highly recommend it. On several occasions I’ve had questions, and each of those times they were answered quickly and made easily understandable.

  536. rklesc

    I am having trouble with the added shortcode buttons on the visual editor screen in the admin area. When I click on any of the buttons (all the buttons) it loads a small screen with the home page. There are no options shown like the screen pics you have on your demo so I cannot use any of these options. What is your suggested fix for this. BTW … if I have to locate and load something make it simple and clear as I am tech savy at all.

    I have just purchased this template and i am not very good with wp. How do i set up the page so it has no comment facility on it?

    Hello! I was wondering what font you used for the word “Dawn” in “The Dawn” logo? I recognized the “Scriptina” font used with “The”, however I am ready to pull my hair out trying to figure out the other! LOL

    Have tried uploading this theme, but despite it saying it had uploaded there was also an error message and it became obvious some things were missing.

  543. marlonw12

    Never mind – just found my answer

  544. kylen20

    @ronaldoescudeiro @hastimal I’ve had the same issue with the contact form. It sends the email but doesn’t display the confirmation message.

  545. trocity

    Loving the theme so far but I cannot get the WP audio player plugin to work with this theme. The player is the one everybody uses to play MP3 files in wordpress and it’s an essential part of my site.

  546. RedRider27

    Is this theme developer EVER going to get it updated to 3.6.1? Seriously, LOADS of unhappy customers over here, mbiz!!

  547. zelot66


  548. alejometal

    hi how are you, I have the following issue: the theme has an issue with jQuery Colorbox (a very popular plugin). I’ve contacted the author of the plugin and this is what he has answered:

  549. CaSundara

    Hi, and I love the theme! I’m currently testing it on a site I won’t actually be using it on just so i can see how it works with the content I already have online. The site I intend to use it for is a magazine and I want to make use of the columns and pages, but I’m having a problem with images breaking up the flow. I’m new to wordpress so please excuse me if I’m being incredibly stupid! Here’s a link to a page I’m working on so you can see what i mean:

    how can I remove all but one skin from the options in the dropdown menu – Choose a Skin

  554. gbrandt

    Love the theme options and hope I can buy this. Looking to do a rather complicated news blog so was curious if its possible to remove the slider at the top of the page (in my case the blog style home page) entirely?

  555. salafit

    Hey. We have a request for you. The fact that we have a very large menu, we would like that we had not opened the menu through and when you hover the mouse-click on the menu. Is it possible to do this and how? We can pay you for the changes in the code if it is at the level of a programmer. Look forward to your early reply. Thank you, respectfully. Great theme!

  556. Enigma1

    I’ve bought your theme The Dawn.. beautiful.

  557. askdarius

  559. bradg120177

    Hey I have a question regarding this theme. I really like the background that displays at first for the slider. Is that background included and if so how can i get it to display on the home page. thanks!

  560. maxime9009

    Hello, i’ve just bought this wonderful template, followed the instructions, but here’s what it looks like.

  561. crazyserb

    Important question before I buy – do you provide an XML import of all your demo content, so we have a fully populated site as a starting point for our future development?

  562. nibin_blessy

    Hello, Im trying to make a new skin in pink. I have made the changes to the colors and gradients and now Im trying to export the images but there is no slices. How do i create the images out of Photoshop cs4 with out any slices?

  566. BullseyeMedia

    Hi MBiz,

  567. Christina25

    At this point I feel it necessary to begin the process of asking for a refund as I cannot seem to get any support for this product and it will not work as advertised.

  568. mmmiro

    You mentioned that there was an update. I am still on 1.0. Does it notify automatically or do we need to check manually somewhere.

  571. Conskoko

    Hello, i have a problem with the greek characters on thedanw theme. Widget’s and post’s title don’t recognize greek characters and when i am writing something in greek it just doesn’t appear when i do preview (actually while the preview is loading i can see the characters just fine and by the time it finishes loading it has disappeared). The articles appear just fine in greek language. What should i do to fix it??

  572. TCSWeb

    My optiontree literally doesn’t even show up…I install the theme successfully although there is no “themeoptions” in appearance or option tree like I remember on the older version—I just installed the 1.5 just to let you know.

    On some pages, there is a 230px x 200px image. I would like to make it 100px wide. I can edit the css for the area the image goes, but it does not affect the image size. Can you tell me what I need to edit to reduce it?

  592. Monema


  593. yra4000

    I see your support is pretty much none existent…u havent answered my question or anyone elses in months…im going to be requesting a refund from themeforest..if you cannot give the proper support you shouldnt have themes for sale on this website…especially when you have sold over 1000 of this should be expecting a lot of inquiries…

  594. superchris

    @CarlMagnusNorden – i assume its in the headers this problem are? This theme uses a cufon replacment font in the headers. All those special characters both small and uppercase should be added when you generate the js file. Defualt in this theme are the Titillium_600.font.js. You need the font on your computer to generate a new .js on this page You could use any other font you like and generate your own .js Ask Mbiz for the fontset, its difficult for an non swedish speaking to add those special characters they probarly don’t exist on the keyboard

  595. emlynmiles

    Has anyone else had any problems with options menus not being available?

    lazyhoofer, i’m having the same issue when I’ve got permalinks enabled. If I disable permalinks then the MCE buttons for the shortcodes work. I really want to use permalinks, so I’d like to have a solution as well.
