    I’m looking for assistance in how I need to modify the submission form to personalise it to my specific needs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



    1. Jeff,

      Unfortunately, we don’t do custom development. We are good at making templates and themes.

    2. I can help you Jeff, if you can follow this cryptic message feel free to email me. I’ve been doing web development professionally for 14+ years now. I can be reached mobilphoneapp .and then the 2nd part of my info is developer then that’s at gmail. I hope to hear from you

    3. We provide HTML support at very affordable rates. Send us an email if you are still needing assistance.

  2. where can i find the emails entered in the subscription form?

    1. Marvi,

      By default these templates won’t store anything. You need to either add your own backend of integrate it with Mailchimp or other email handling service. That’s up to you.


    Please can you tell me how to avoid the countdown to “restart” all time i refresh the page?
    Thank you very much.
    Best regards.

    1. Stefano,

      Each template is different. Since they all include a JavaScript for countdown you should just play around with its settings.

      For template related questions please use our support forum:
      Create your own support thread and we will help you from there.

    2. I have the solution. I have just tried it. It worked

  4. Hi,

    When I try to install these themes, I get a failed message stating that they’re missing css.stylesheet. Can you tell me what it is I’m missing?


    1. You are getting this error because these are not WordPress themes but HTML templates.

  5. You should tell people upfront that this is only free under an attribution license.
    There is still a fee involved to remove the credit link.
    It is important (and dutiful) that you inform people of this upfront.

  6. How do I use this for my wordpress blog?

    1. For now it is not possible but we are thinking about introducing a plugin for that.

  7. Haseeb Ahmad says:

  12. Sayan Samanta says:

    You Rock Aigars. Superb template, it’s looks awesome on my site. Thank You for sharing.

  13. This plugin is fantastic for hiding my sites while I work on them!

    However, there are people (such as vendors) that I need to show the site to. Is there a backdoor I could make, such as “” or another page/place I could direct them? Also, at what level can someone whose logged in see the pages under development? A “subscriber”, “editor”, just “admin”?

    1. Depends on the settings you use for the plugin. By default only admin will be able to see the site when logged in but you can change that.
