  3. MAGAZINEstudio

  4. elixir971

    Could we had the french language to this theme ?

  5. oschael

    Hi, nice theme!

  7. dhrspek

    I can see in the Changelog that you updated the theme to version 1.13. and updated the Visual Composer to 5.0.1. But when I re-download the new version of the theme via “Downloads” I can see that the download contains version 1.12 with visual composer 4.12. How can I download version 1.13?

  8. SceneryW

    How do I delete or hide the Fa Facebook link at the footer? I have tried deleting from the scene settings panel, but it is still showing.

  9. creativemindsau

    This theme looks perfect for my next project. Does it come with a child theme?

  10. laura12876

    Hello! Lovely theme! Can you tell me if any of your homepage post sliders (featured at the top of your homepage layouts) has the ability to play audio files right within the slider? I’m trying to get as much functionality on the homepage as possible, so the user doesn’t have to visit the main post page to listen to audio. Thanks!

    Hi ThemeCanon,

    Hi everybody,
    I have just uploaded our first video tutorial for Scene:

  14. GinniSugarlime

    Very beautiful!

  15. pixldigital

    I’ve bought many themes in the past and I have to say that this is one of the best themes I have ever used. The documentation is simply outstanding, and add the fact that the theme creator is actually really good in English (no offence to the other devs), really sets this one apart. Visual Composer + Videos + Documentation + Support = INSTANT DEALMAKER. Very highly recommended. Great job ThemeCanon!

  16. djapna01

    I can i use this theme to my website after buy it – djmaza

  17. onnawebdesign

    I only wish it had a sticky menu.

  18. mutlugercek


  19. akatbenavides

    I really like it! My only question is, can articles/posts be favorited instead of rated? One of my favorite features is “heart” option, then usually a top hearted/favorited widget and favorites counts.

  20. AliA

    nice theme gud luck

  21. drupalet

    Nice design

  22. SiteSao

    Great idea! Congratulation! Good luck with many sales!

  34. honeyfinom

    I bought your Scene theme with Visual Composer. Now I can’t update my Visual Composer plugin to the latest version in Wordpress 4.6 and I can’t edit my pages with VC. I must buy new direct licence for VC or what is the problem?
    Thank you

  35. sstodola

    Hi—Is there a way in this theme to add a byline field to post pages?

  36. Pvictoria1

  39. dhrspek


  40. fernanda_s

    Hello, I bought this theme a couple of years ago. Instagram and twitter feeds stopped working, just wondering if there is anything new that should be done? WP is up-to-date. is the website. Thank you.

  41. Jonny9

    1. Would you tell me how to disable the sidebar?

  42. riks

    The visual editor is not working.
    It seems the Scene Core Plugin and Scene Shortcodes Plugin makes this to not work (I have tried by deactivating those).
    Any fix please?

  43. hanplane

    Hello ~ ThemeCanon.

  44. sweileman

    I’ve done some extensive customize to your theme, and all is well with one exception. Somehow I’ve ‘broken’ the search link in the nav bar. Any chance you can walk me through restoring it?

  45. jaque76

    Hi! i would like my logo to be bigger. Where can I change it? Thanks!! =)

  47. kevman1972

    Great theme!
    I have a question regarding the menu of the Layout version 4, when the menu is placed on the right. I need to place some sub menu items, also on the final buttons. What happens when I make a sub or even sub-sub-menu item list on the final menu buttons (eg. on ‘english’). Is it possible near the edge of the window? Will the subs collapse out or jump to the left instead? Thanks!
    View my example:

  48. ninzio

    Awesome magazine, blog theme. Congrats and GLWS

  49. ArkRoyal

    Hi there,
    The Scene Tabs Widget isn’t responsive and over extends the tabs when viewed on an iPad. Same on your demo site.

  50. sikandar

    Nice theme

  51. studio302

    Does this template work on multisite?

  52. Chuck-Norris

    Hi, Comments on the pages are activated , but not visible. The the records are all available in the .php Files. Can we allow the Child settings comments? I do not think so.

  53. Millin

    Nice theme!

  54. ThemeCanon

    Hi, just uploaded two more video tutorials:

  55. EloquentChic

    Hey there,

  56. deversus

    Hello. Nice theme , congratulations !
    Let me know if you can make visible the shopping cart icon , otherwise users might leave the site without buying . Thanks a lot! L.

  57. ThemeCanon

    Hi everyone, we have just opened a brand new dedicated support forum! This means that we will no longer do support via e-mail. Our new support forum offers a beautiful and user friendly interface that makes it a lot easier to keep track of your support tickets and also makes it easier to share knowledge through public tickets and articles. If you need support feel free to open a support ticket – we are standing by to assist you!

  58. dstprl

    Thank you. I purchased the theme and watched the set up / installation video. I have an existing blog and template that I am switching from. Do I need to do anything with CSS, the sliders and text content (cut and paste)? That part went a little fast and I didn’t understand it. Thanks.

  59. Misspixels


  60. Jonny9

    I don’t think your DEMO is working. Would you check it?

  61. fredbros

    Very nice and clean template – i’m thinking seriously of changing mine with yours – just a couple of questions

  62. munireatici


  63. 9rayathemes

    Very nice theme. Congratulations!!!
    Good luck with your sales

  64. merrison

    This theme is powerful and very easy to use and well documented, a big deal for a relative novice such as myself. I reached out to support and had my issue addressed quickly.

  65. creativemindsau

    Hi, I’m having trouble with the styling of a Gravity Forms. In particular the alignment of radio buttons (they’re above the label, but not in a nice way) and the colons in the time field have dropped down below the field.
    Can you help?

  66. Jonny9

    1. Is there option to turn on/off post counts?

  67. ioemargherita


  68. Bubsa

    Is there any way to remove the pre header bar entirely?

  69. mike7367


  70. dstprl

    I’m very interested in purchasing this theme for my fitness lifestyle blog. The question I have is, on my homepage I have a photo with short bio of me along with my social share buttons. What options are there to place it on the home page with this theme? I can be contacted at [email protected] with the response if possible. Thanks.
