  1. How to implement Leaflet or google maps?

  2. Trying to use this theme for my website, but when I upload to wordpress it says the style.css is missing. WordPress has directed me to reach out to the developer of the site theme. Any ideas? After the failed attempt to upload the zipped theme, I checked to confirm that the style.css was included, and it was.

    1. That’s as expected because it is not a WordPress theme but an HTML template.

        So if found this template via a web search that took me to colorlib’s page detailing “wordpress templates.” Can I use this template somehow with wordpress? Do I need to edit/add files in the zip to use it as a wordpress template somehow?

        1. This isn’t a WordPress theme. Maybe we will build one based on it but for now you will have to hire someone to do it for you.

          1. So if its HTML them them what is the backend or back office is there any CMS behind?

            1. HTML means that there is no dashboard on CMS. If you have the knowledge you can convert to be used with any CMS you want.
              Otherwise, I would recommend to look for personal WordPress themes here.

  3. Martin Ulbrich says:

    I guess you don’t plan to create a version of this template for CMS Joomla, do you? It looks like it would almost perfectly fit one of my ideas for new personal website (including possibility of adding sections, posts, blogs etc. as unique subpages and urls). :)))
    It’s also a pity that there is no example of a single blogpost in blog section of your demo.
    All the best!

    1. Maybe there is going to be a WordPress version for it but since Joomla is a completely outdated CMS we have no plans to ever support it.

  4. Amir Seckanovic says:

    do you have this theme in wordpress format

    1. No, not yet but demand is night enough we might create one. Therefore, make sure to spread a word about this template to make it happen.

  5. Cameron Caldwell says:

    How do I go about getting this on wordpress?

  6. Do you currently have any themes similar to this template design?

  7. Miguel Rangel says:

    There’s an issue on the portfolio section, Filters don’t work, they don’t show categorized portfolio items, How can it be fixed ?

    1. Miguel,

      Unfortunately, you are doing a serious copyright infringement and therefore we’ll have to take down your website. To resolve it please read this.

  8. Jamal Bivvins2 says:

    I noticed when clicking through the demo of Jackson, the Work and Blog posts in the section don’t link anywhere. It says it is also missing a blog.html file. If purchased, will the Work and Blog section be included or is this something we would have to build in our own?2

    1. Jamal,

      These are just individual HTML files. You can link them together anywhere you like. We just have created a sample version and you can build from there.

  9. Where can I find a list of all available icons in the “icon2” set?

    1. Would be awesome to get this answered!

  10. Loving this theme!
    Looking at buying it, but before I do would updating to Bootstrap version 4 break it ??

    1. Depends on the approach you will use to convert it. Just changing Bootstrap files from version 3 to 4 will obviously break so going through template files is a must.

    Hi there,

    really great theme, thank you!
    How can I remove these words that “the theme was developed by colorlib, etc.”? Do I have to buy a license for that? Could you please give me a link for that?

    1. Vadim,

      More information about the licenses and their purchase you can find here.

  12. Vadim Kadyrov says:

    Hi there,

    can I somehow remove the credits? Maybe, purchase a license?

  13. Vadim Kadyrov says:

    Can I pay via credit card? PayPal is not an option for me.

  14. Hello,
    Trying to install this theme but getting an error.

    Is there a problem with the package?


    1. You are getting this error because it is not a WordPress theme but an HTML template. Similar personal WordPress themes can be found here.

  15. Lisa O James says:

    Additional pages or sections to the website do you have instructions for that. I’m not sure how to use the work section and make it later Facebook this year low side.

    How can I change the color of “I am happy to know you that 100+ projects done sucessfully!” from gold to the blue header on education?
    How do I link the View portfolio to my work section?

  18. Jack Webster says:

    Download link is broken, is that normal?

    1. It works perfectly fine for us. What browser do you use?

  19. Vasilis Vrontisis says:

    Hello, I really like Jackson free template and I am looking forward to bying it’s licence, but there is an issue with it’s main menu links logic (About, Services, Skills, etc.). They don’t really have each it’s own specific URL, but instead, they all have the same URL:
    I understand that the linking is done via Javascript, by the section naming, but what about SEO issues? Structurally, this template consists of one page with different sections, so, the ‘Services’ “page” for example cannot have it’s unique URL, so when a visitor hits it, will be driven directly to this page. Instead, all visitors are driven to the initial section of the site (the “home page”). So, the search engines cannot differentiate between the differenet sections of the site.
    So, I was wondering if there is any tweak for ascribing unique URL’s to each section.

  20. awesome template! downloaded, bought a license, and modified it to meet my needs.

    Trying to figure out how to get the send message bit at the bottom to work. What am i missing? It just simple takes me back to the top of the page.

  21. Hi there, in the “Work” section the images have links to “work.html” but there’s no work.html file. And how do I link all the a href=”#”? I think those are placeholders? I know a little HTML5 but I’m far from a professional.

  22. Markel Alvarez says:

    When the page is viewed on mobile, the main section with the links to portfolios etc cannot be clicked, any solutions?
    Thank you.

  23. I have been trying to modify the .author-img to fit, but it won’t. I have it resized to a 150px by 150px, but it still shows an enlarged size that is only visible to the center, maybe 75px by 75px. I didn’t want to change the css too much before getting past this error, so I’m not sure why it is doing so.

  24. Hi How do I access all the code for all different sections in the template. One example is the education and contact sections? I’m trying to implement both of these in my own website.

  25. I signed up for your mailing list but have not received a link to download the template. Can Someone manually send this?

  26. Hi, I tried to use variable in ‘data-from’ and ‘data-to’ in scrolling number section (between services and skills)
    But those values won’t be changed.
    I tried the following:
    – $(‘#id’).attr(‘data-to’, target-value)
    – countTo function which is mentioned in

    Could you give me an advice to change those?
