Sparkling - great theme, few questions :)


Thanks for this theme (Sparkling) which is a great one!!

I’ve built my blog (Blog) , and would need your help for the following:

  1. Can I add a Tagline? So instead of having 1 line on the left upper corner, I’d like to have 2.

  2. Can I make the “Follow Us” buttons to open in a new tab?

  3. Can I remove the author name at the end of the blog post (ie disable the “author bio”)

  4. Is there anything I need to do within the theme to have an RSS Feed? So far, my posts are not sent through to my feed reader.

  5. Finally, can I have all the nav menus (upper right corner) in all lowercase letters (e.g project rather than PROJECT) ?


Hi there

Hope you are having a good day and thank you for your question

  1. sorry but theme options doesn’t allow this, without customization this is not possible
  2. this depends on the location you want to add it, in particular places
  3. Yes, can help you there but i need url of one of your post
  4. try to find third-party plugins for this, p.s. anyone uses RSS today??
  5. Yes, i will provide custom css once i get your website url

p.s. your website url is not working,

This site can’t be reached’s server IP address could not be found.

  1. OK. Can I get that config done, or is part of the license?

  2. I’d like to click on the “Follow us” buttons (e.g. Twitter) and open it in a new browser tab (something like target="_blank")

  3. here’s a URL: To be or not to be… resistant! – Strategic Impact of IT Trends

  4. So it’s to do with me not using plug-ins rather than the theme blocking the feed? If I look at the link below, I can see all the blog posts, but then my RSS reader service won’t find them. (ps - yes RSS is still a big thing with loads of new services/apps being built :))

  1. OK. Link above


Any news on this one? Thank you!!!

Hello there,

1 +2. You can have a third party developer alter the code to have 2 lines implemented and change the twitter link. You can find one here:

3+5. You can use this CSS to remove the author information and change the menu case:

/*remove author info*/
.author-bio {
    display: none;

/*Lowercase menu items*/
.navbar-default .navbar-nav > li > a {
    text-transform: lowercase;

  1. You would have to use a plugin to implement the RSS feed. Here is one that you can try out:
    WP RSS Aggregator – News Feeds, Autoblogging, Youtube Video Feeds and More – WordPress plugin |

Best Regards,

Thank you!!! That really helps!!

Re 3) could I remove the borders? or the whole author-bio altogether?


hi Andre

Where is the author box here at the end of the post? i can’t see it, can you post a screenshot?

p.s. next time please split your ticket when you have more about 5 questions :smiley:


Here’s the screenshot and URL as an example :slight_smile: Thanks

And sorry for throwing so many questions…sure, next time will split the ticket!

hey there

Please add this CSS in appearance - customize - additional CSS

.post-inner-content {
border: 1px solid #ffffff;

Thanks. But now it removed all borders apart from the top one.

Could I have only the author box removed and the post with borders? If not possible, is there a way to also remove the top border?



Ok, please remove previous code and use this:

.post-inner-content.secondary-content-box {
border: none;

Thanks. It works.

Topic can be closed.


I will close this case now, Feel free to contact us again if you have other questions Thanks!
