1. Slider doesn`t show up after updating to v1.9. What should I do?

If you`re having issues with the slider after the update to version 1.9 (the slider doesn`t show up on page anymore), please set the "Output Filters Protection" option to "By Echo Output": https://www.diigo.com/item/image/4ruxh/rqcn

This issue is related to a RevolutionSlider bug which should get fixed in the next update.


2. How do I install Stag theme?

You could install the theme in two ways:

1. From the WordPress dashboard

Go to Wp Dashboard->Themes, click on the Add New button, then click on the Upload Theme button. Select the stag.zip archive located in the Stag Theme folder from the downloaded package from ThemeForest and click on Install Now button. The theme will be uploaded and installed. Afterwards, activate the theme to finish the installation process.


2. Manually, via FTP

Unzip the stag.zip archive and upload the "stag" folder into the "wp-content/themes/" folder on your server, using a FTP program like FileZilla. Afterwards, go back to your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Themes and activate the Stag theme.

3. When I click on projects I get 404 error pages. What should I do to fix this?

You have to refresh the permalinks. Please go to Settings->Permalinks and click on Default. Save. Then click again on your custom structure(Post Name) and save again. That should do it!

4. I don`t receive emails from the Contact Form. What should I do?

You`re probably using a custom email address for receiving the contact forms and there are cases when WordPress can`t send the emails, because of the receiver`s email settings.

However, you could fix it with the "Postman SMTP" plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/postman-smtp/

Just install the plugin and configure it(see https://wordpress.org/plugins/postman-smtp/installation/ ) and you shouldn`t have issues afterwards!


If you`re having troubles displaying the fields on multiple columns, here`s a tutorial related to it.

Here's a guide on how to store contact form 7 submissions to database.
