Recommendations for User

Manual Excerpt

To make your blog looks better, you need to include a manual excerpt for every post (like my blog). You can add that while editing or adding new post. You can, however, leave your excerpt empty and wordpress will automatically make an excerpt for you, but all HTML tags would be auto removed.

Post Image & Thumbnails

Post Thumbnail is a square image of size 125 x 125 pixels, shown at blog index, related posts and search.
Post Image is an image of size 550 x 190 pixels, shown at single post page, below the post title.
To beautify your blog, try to include post thumbnails for every post (if possible).

Featured Category

In most cases, not all your featured posts are in the same category. You can create a new category (let’s say I called it : Featured) and choose it as the “Featured Category” at the theme option page.
Step-by-step guide to activate Featured Gallery

WP-PageNavi Plugin Conflict

Some users reported that WP-PageNavi plugin causes the sidebar and footer to be missing. If you have WP-PageNavi plugin installed, you should either deactivate the plugin or remove the built-in WP-PageNavi plugin to avoid conflict.


1. You need to install flickrRSS plugin to show your flickr photos at footer.

Theme Support / Edit / Add Features

Free theme support service has been stopped. If you need some tweaking or want to add features, please contact me. *Depending on the matter, you might need to buy me a cup of coffee or 3

Chris says:

Hi.. i downloaded your theme.. very nice.
I have one question.

Ill use WordPress only as a cms-system and i dont need comments. It is possible to disable this function easily ?

best Chris

zen says:

@Chris, remove the lines below in single.php and page.php

<div class="blogsep"></div>
<div class="extra_content">
<h3><?php echo $post->comment_count; ?> Comments
<?php if ( comments_open() ) : ?>
<div class="replyjump"><a rel="nofollow" href="#reply" rel=”nofollow”>Add Comment</a></div>
<?php endif; ?>

<?php comments_template();?>

Chris says:

It works.. thanks !!!

Laurence Flynn says:

Definitely your best theme yet. ;)

Atif Hussain says:

Hi Zen,
This and all your themes are great. What i love about them is the ease at which you have made for others, who have no or very little understanding of php.
This has been the best experience of using free WP themes to date.
I got stuck and emailed you many time and you were very quick in helping.
Thanks for all your help.

Atif Hussain says:

Hi Zen,
Was wondering if you could help me out. Am using the Exult theme and till today, my twitter updates are not being displayed at the bottom of the page. would you know why?

zen says:

@Atif Hussain, did you enter your twitter username and choose number of latest tweets to be displayed at the theme option?

Zahid Lilani says:

Exult is really a very good looking theme. The best thing that even though it has all the premium features, it is free.

Keep up the good work…

Markus Burgdorf says:

I’m just installing your Theme for Wirtschaftsmagazin.net. Thank you for the excellent work!


Jase says:

Great looking template – would like to change 2 things though

1. i’d like to centre the whole blog – got any quick tips on your CSS where to do that (to save a little trial-and-error css editing :) ) perhaps a theme option?

2. With my current theme and Featured Content plugin I’m using a standard image size of roughly 600 × 402 – is it possible to edit the CSS/theme to allow the featured content photo to be more around this size (e.g. 4:3 ratio) rather than the 550 x 190 px your theme has by default? e.g. a 550 X 369 px

Great work and thanks for any tips :)

Thanks and cheers!

zen says:


1. Open style.css, look for :

html, body {
margin:0 auto;
font-family:Calibri, "Lucida Grande", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Remove the html,

2. Of course it is possible. Look into the HTML source, find the related class name and edit it in style.css

Jase says:

Thanks for the suggestions… I did try this already though and it still aligns left – something else must be budging it over – i’m using snow leopard and the latest version of Safari. I tried it in Firefox on the mac and same issue.

I appreciate this is free and you don’t need to offer support and i’ll keep trying to find the solution but i’m sure others will be happy to have the solution too as centre aligned sites is a pretty standard for many these days

Thanks again :)


Jase says:


OK I stumbled upon it :)

Here’s the changes to style.css:

–> remove html and also width: 1000px

body {
margin:0 auto;
font-family:Calibri, “Lucida Grande”, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

–> changed the order – width goes to the bottom

#page {
margin: 0 auto;

that does the trick :)

zen says:

@Jase, all my themes were meant to be center-aligned. It looks fine in all my browsers. But some users reported that my themes are not center aligned in IE7 and they manage to fix it by removing html,

Thanks for the fix. I will add that fix in next version.

Jase says:

hmmm think i won’t be using this theme even though i really do like it
i don’t mind advertising the theme and your site where i got it from but some hosting company when i’m not using their services? no thanks… and there’s something sneaky in there – so when you change it to have everything exactly the same but remove the links to the hosting company the page doesn’t generate right and it doesn’t display.

I just don’t agree with these sorts of under handed methods.

Good luck with your other themes…

zen says:

@Jase, perhaps you should buy a theme then. Seriously guys, you shouldn’t complain when you use a completely free product.

Just my 2 cents. Thank you.

Starliner says:

Hi All;
Your templates are beatiful but Encoding footer contents with Base64 isnt true behaviour. You can put your Design link this is ok but other hosting etc links are not necessary.If you want to keep good works and like by others you may listen to my suggestions.Please remove only hosting links.Otherwise I will remove it by myself by Decoding the codes.And Callbacks


zen says:

@Starliner, hi, for your information, you are using a free theme so you shouldn’t complain much. You don’t pay for this, you can always choose other themes out there. You can decode it if you like.

P/S : I need to live so I have to do so.

Try imagine you yourself offer free themes to the public but people complaint? It hurts me, seriously!

Just my 2 cents. Thank you.

Eric says:

Hi Zen,

I’m using a paid version of the exult template.

I want to put this line in my header :

to allow facebook to show the thumb of the actual post. How can i do ?

Thanks :)


zen says:

I can’t see the codes you paste. Can you post a topic at the forums? Thanks :)

Markus burgdorf says:

Hi Zen,

I’m wondering how I can change the Headlines into European, or name it german format, without writing every word in Capitals.

Do you have a hint for me?

Rishi says:

hey i liked your designed and have used it from my new blog, But i cannot see the flash/sliding thing that keeps moving .. im also not getting my TITLE similar to the one shown in the template … Please helop me with his two issue s ,,

:-) :)

Rishi says:

Bruno says:

Hola Zen,
Existe la posibilidad de hacer que el Menu sea desplegable y muestre los sub-menues? como puedo hacerlo? Gracias!

Eduardo says:

Perfect! :)
