switched to illustratr

  1. Hello!i have switched to illustratr,very nice theme,but i would like the backround lilac instead of white,and my widgets are to puttem back?thank you to reply as soon as possible!!

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi, Illustratr offers a widget area that appears above the footer in a hidden panel. Click on the link to expand and view the widgets. This keeps the design sleek and helps Illustratr creating a clean reading experience for everyone.

    I'm working on getting them to display all the time, but it is being a bit difficult at the moment.

  3. Thankso i will more thing i would a lilac backround insteead of lilac,and i tried loading my articles on my ipad and samsung galaxy 3 but it does not finish loadind there my be a glitch.thank you for checking

  4. Sorry, the background behind the content is set here.

    #page {
        background: #FFFFFF;
  5. Thank you!you might want also to check the loading glitches on pc ipad'and mobile

  6. The posts page loads for me on iPad and iPhone, but it is very slow, and that is due to the large number of images you are using and the gallery slideshows. I would suggest going to Settings > Reading and set your site to show at most 5 posts per page instead of 10. On a page speed test I ran, it gave up at 20 seconds and timed out.

  7. Can you try now please

  8. It loads much faster for me now.

  9. One question:id be grateful if you answer as quickly as possible-where do i have to click for the widgets to appear?thank you

  10. For me it does not load when i click on my posts its very slow then it stops.on mobile devices.please check might have to reswitch theme

  11. At the bottom of the content area, there is a small triangle with a + sign in it. Click on that to get the footer widgets to show.

    I see you have switched back to Fontfolio. Are you still having issues with the site loading on your phone with Fontfolio?

  12. Yes I had to switch to fontfolio,because I had various complaints that did not fiload.with fontfolio no problems

  13. I would like to switch back to illustrar once its fixed.for those who worked they liked it.thanks for fix it

  14. @catezapp, visit the Illustratr demo site on your mobile and see how things work for you there. The slow loading could be caused by any number of issues from a slow internet connection to images that are very large (file size).

  15. It should not be the internet,as myself and my followers have broadband.what else could it be?i will check.

  16. Let me know on your experience with the demo site, and also perhaps ask a couple of your followers to check it out, if you can. If there isn't a problem on the demo site, we can then start looking into your site specifically to see what might be causing the issue.

  17. I will checkthis evening

  18. Thanks.

  19. I should thank you and to spend time on it.sorry to bug you,instead!i like to change theme,about once a year portfolio style

  23. Hi Richard I hope this is the right place to post my question.
    I really like this theme and I would like to use it for my personal website/blog. At the moment I am using a customisation of 2014 ( but I would like to switch to something more minimal like "Illustratr".
    Is there any reason why I cannot find any place to download it? Is it supposed to be just for bloggers?
    Thanks in advance.

  24. These support forums are only for those with blogs hosted by WordPress.COM. In particular the CSS forum is only for those with hosted blogs who have purchased a custom design upgrade. There is no place to download the Illustr theme because there is no version for WordPress.ORG software as yet.

  25. @eliobasagni, most free themes at are downloadable from the sidebar on pages like

    However, Illustratr doesn't have a download link yet because it requires some special code support for Custom Post Types that will be included in an upcoming Jetpack plugin release. Once that's released, then the Illustratr theme will get a download link added. You can watch for updates—there's a subscribe link at the bottom left of the page if you want to get updates by email.

    Glad you like Illustratr. :) Thanks for asking about it!

  26. @designsimply, thanks a lot for the quick and comprehensive reply I will follow the as advised ...

    apologies, i just realized my error regarding above question... once i changed the custom link to
    (instead of leaving it fully blank)
    the menu now works on ipad. Hopefully this helps someone else! thanks again.

  29. Hi @bernadetteartwork, I would change it to a # symbol instead of using http:// as that will cause errors is someone clicks on it. With the # symbol if someone clicks on it it will refresh the page they are on, but will not produce any errors.

  30. Hi, I am trying the theme for my Dancing School and I find that when I try to add one more page to the menu seems somehow impossible. Any suggestions?
    The page is
    Thanks in advance
