    Hi there,

    Firstly, thanks for the Asteria theme, it’s really easy to use, our site is nearly ready! I’ve hit a couple of problems on the way though and I was wondering if you could help?

    1) Our breadcrumb feature isn’t working. I’ve ‘enabled breadcrumbs’ in the Asteria options but they’re not appearing. Is there anything else that I need to do?

    2) When viewing the site on an iPad/iPhone, our logo isn’t appearing or is skewed.

    3) Am I able to add a link into the header next to the phone number / email address? It’s an html link to a page which will open in a new window.

    4) On your Asteria demo homepage, the text boxes for the image sliders have a drop shadow on them. Please could you tell me how I replicate this for ours?

    5) On the homepage sliders, are we able to add a border to the slides which include images / videos? So they look like one complete banner with text / images in?

    6) Are we able to change the background colours of the site, and change the main font colour to a slightly darker grey? (It’s difficult to read in some light).

    Our address is http://www.energymonitoringexperts.co.uk if you need to take a look.

    Thanks for your help!



    Hi there,

    1. Make sure that you install and activate the breadcrumbs plugin located in the archive you’ve downloaded > plugins.

    2. I’ve checked your website and your logo appears fine on my ipad and iphone. Could you post a screenshot of how you see it?

    3. Did you try to insert the email and phone content in html?

    Eg. <a href="your-url.com" target="_blank">+0 123 4567</a>

    4. Yeas, sure. Simply wrap your text in paragraphs.

    Eg. <p>... text here ... </p>

    5. Do you want to add a border to the entire slide or just the the image/video part?

    6. Yes, you can do that by adding your custom styling css in the theme options page > Styling Options > Custom CSS box.

    body { color: #000; }

    This will make your text color black. Replace the color’s hex code with your own one.



    Hi Chris,

    Many thanks for getting back to me. Responses are below!

    1) This worked, thank you!

    2) I have attached screenshots of both the iPhone and iPad as it’s still not appearing correctly on either. (You’ll notice that the banner images aren’t displaying correctly on the iPhone either?).

    3) Nope, I haven’t tried inserting the phone number / email as html. I’m basically just looking to add a new option to the header bar alongside our phone number and email address (called ‘client login’. Do I need to insert a new header in html to add an additional option? Please could you let me know how I do this? I’m not sure where I would edit the html.

    4) I’ll have a play with this, thank you!

    5) I’d like to add a border to the entire slide and change the background of that border (so it looks more like a complete slide with information on it rather than bits of text / images / buttons).

    6) Thank you! This changed the text colour perfectly. Please could you tell me how I change the background colour?

    7) *new!* I have tried to replace our logo with one that is slightly wider and when I do, it appears to put an invisible layer over my main navigation menu so I can’t click on any new pages, it keeps freshing the home page (as if I’ve clicked on the logo). Is there an issue with this at all? I have attached the logo in question (at the moment, I have put the original one back up).

    8) *new* Our tagline doesn’t appear in the browser header next to our favicon. It should read “Green Running | Energy Monitoring and Power Saving Solutions for Business” but at the moment it just reads ‘Green Running’. I have edited it in the ‘customise’ section of the template, is there anything else I need to do?

    Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.



    Hi there, was there any response to my message?

    Many thanks!


    Hi there,

    Sorry, I think I’ve missed your reply.


    1. Can you give me a test username and pwd. so I can take a closer look to the logo problem on mobile devices? (you can use the private reply function).

    2. You must add the desired html in the “header.php” file. The code starts at line 73.

    3. To add a border to the slider you can edit the file named “featured_slider.css” located in the “styles” folder, and add the border styling to the .flexslider class. But you must play a little bit with it in order to make it to look good.

    4. You can add this to the same body code:

    background-color: #ffffff;

    Change the hex code of the color with your custom one.

    5. You can edit the file named “header.php” and replace lines 35, 36 and 37, these:

    else {

    with this:

    else {

    Save. Done.

    Hi there,

    Just to follow up on my last post, I would also like to expand the width of the columns on my pricing table.

    I think I’ve found the bit in the css file called Default and I should be able to increase the width from 200px, but I’m not sure where I add the new css file so that it updates my theme.

    Apologies if this is a really stupid question but I’ve never updated the CSS before.

    Any help would be much appreciated.



    Hi there,

    You can add any CSS code changes to the theme options page > Styling Options > Custom CSS. It will override any default CSS settings.

    I’ve logged in to your website but I will need admin rights in order to edit the theme files.



    Hi there,

    Apologies, I thought I set it to admin to start with. I have now made you an admin.

    If you could look at our log and tagline I would really appreciate it.

    Many thanks,



    Hi there,

    Please check your site now and let me know if everything is ok.
