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.

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

Just wanted to thank you very much for your free themes. I am an artist and photographer and have now used two of your free themes. The first one was Zion and the one I am using now is the blue-white Delighted theme which is really light, clean and modern. It is very generous of you to offer these premium and classy themes for free and they are outstanding. Well done!

SPIC says:

Hi Zen,

Your themes are fantastic! And amongst the best templates i’ve seen on the web.

One question i have: it seems the tags on my website is not working and showing “not found” crawl errors. I’ve tried to de-activate all plugins but to no avail.

Would sincerely appreciate your help.
