  1. Love the theme. Is there a great uses guide? I am trying to figure out how to turn on the 2-column option. Thanks

  2. I’ve noticed you have disabled or turned off the admin tool bar when you are log into the dashboard. I see it covers the navwrap. Not having admin toolbar makes it hard to edit the pages or posts when you are logged in and trying to work on the site. I turned the admin tool bar back on through the functions.php. Could you maybe add a (edit post) at the bottom of the (div.dets). I’ve seen this with a lot of themes. Just shows up when you are logged in and editing. What are your thoughts?

    Also, under the single.php the Previous post is on the right side of the page. The Next post is on the left side. I reversed it so that the next post is on the right side of the post. Just seemed backwards. What do you think?

    This theme looks great on a laptop or smartphone. Thanks!!!!

  3. Hi, I also installed Pinzolo and would like for it to always be in the two column option but I can’t find anything that would let me select that layout in the theme customizer or anywhere else.

    How can I make my blog be always in the two-column option?

    Thank you!

  4. Also, can you tell me how to make the header image link to Home? I don’t want to have a menu at the top, I’d prefer for the header image to be the link back to the first page of my blog.

    Thank you!

  5. pinzolo rocks!! love that theme,but how i can modify the PINZOLO title,the menu’s options doesent work =)

  6. sorry bro,i find the solution =)

  7. Dean,

    In the past I have used the WP feature to break up long posts into pages. I’m wondering if its possible to get this to work with this theme. I don’t know if there would be a conflict with the existing coding. Here is a link to the wordpress support:

    I’m happy to pay for custom work.

  8. Love This Theme.. thanks for making it responsive…!

  9. Nice work!

  10. hi!

    I’m testing your theme and it’s very nice! Modern, elegant! I love it! I have a problem: do you know how to use a picture in different galleries without uploading in several times (once per gallery).

    I understand that the picture appears in the galleries depending on their “uploaded to” field of WordPress.

    Thanks and congrats again for this theme!

  11. Nice theme, but it’s pity that it is not translation-ready.

  12. Hi, here is my website using Pinzolo theme:

    Thanks for sharing this great theme, simple and easy to customize !!

    Happy end of year !


  13. Hi, Pinzolo looks like a very nice theme for my purpose. However, I cannot seem to control where to place the thumbnails, and cannot readjust the main image in the Gallery page. (I would like to have the thumbnails on the left and the main image, adjusted to 800×600 for example, on the right.) My Gallery page looks exactly like the Gallery page on your demo site (thumbails on top with an oversized main image.) I have tried to change the css style file (the “photospace override” section) but was not successful. Am I missing something? Thank you for your time and I will really appreciate any suggestion. Regards, Ping

  14. HI

    I am very interested in using your theme but have noticed a small issue and I wonder if it is unique to me or potentially a bug or issue.

    It seems that when I create a gallery (template) page only uploaded images display. My gallery page is a sub page of a portfolio page. When I add photos to the gallery or create the gallery from existing library photos they do not display – I can see and edit the gallery in the admin view but the page is ‘blank’. If I change to a regular page template, it works fine.

    Even if I created the gallery from uploaded images, any images added later from the existing library do not display.

    Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Rory. I need to update the theme to support the new version of Photospace. I’ll do this in the next day or two!

      • Thanks so much for the quick reply – I was about to share the work around of ‘inserting the photos’ to the page and then removing them. Cheers and (happy belated Aussie day from Whistler).

  15. Hello,

    I love this theme! It’s so simple yet you can do a lot with it. Perfect for my site up update. I do have a couple of questions – the first is – Have you updated the theme to match the photo space plugin yet? I noticed on Jan, 28th you said you would. I downloaded mine yesterday and wonder if it’s set to go before I start fooling around with it or looking for a portfolio plugin. Second is… Can you make the top of the regular pages match the top of the blog page minus the “Category” box. Just leave the search box on the regular pages. From an aesthetics point, this would look so much better.

    • I’m actually working on a new Responsive version of Photospace to go with this update. Should be ready in about a week.

      Good idea, I’ll try to leave the search box there.

  16. HI Dean – any update on the new version?


  17. Hi there,
    great work! I love the theme

    I’m trying to add my logo to the blog.
    Can you help me with the code way to do that?

    I’ve readed is gonna be an update option but could some one help me .
    Thanks in advance.

  18. Hi Dean,

    Thanks for this great theme. I’m wondering if you ever see yourself adding the option for a sidebar?


  19. Hi Dean!

    I have some question! I install Pinzolo on a new, virgin WordPress site, but one the mobile version the menu is crashed. Not loading the scrolling bar. It’s same as iphone as android. What sould I do? Can you help me?

    Thanks a lot!

  20. Hi
    Very good theme, clean and concise.

    No color for body text?
    No font select?

    Thank you

  21. Very clean design! This should be the defacto wordpress theme, it’s way easier to work with, almost exactly what I was looking for (it’s hard to find a theme that is 100% what you want, especially free). It’s been forever since I’ve programed websites, haven’t used many of the newer CMS, so I wanted something simple and clean for my wife’s interior design website, and this was able to get it up and running very quick after the last theme I had turned to garbage after running the software update on it.

    The only thing I’d like is the ability to have a different header for the first page vs. other pages. Not really knowing wordpress, it’s possible you might be able to tweak that already and I might just not be in the know.

  22. Hi Dean.

    I love your theme and wanna tell you Thank you!!

    I have a question here. I installed 1.1.7 ver of pinzolo on my website, but I couldn’t find “Appearance > Theme Customizer” in admin panel. How can I find that option?

    I followed this link,, but still cant find it.

  23. Thanks again for the theme! Its awesome!

  24. Hi.

    Thanks for this excellent theme ! It looks really great. I was wondering if you’ll update it to allow easy translation using .po files. Thanks

    • Possibly, what do you need to translate?

      • I would like to translate the “Search” and “Select category” item (at the top of the page) and mostly the left column (“By” ; “In” ; “With No Comments / 1 Comment / 2 Comments”) “On”). I could do it in the files but, if there’s an update, I will have to change it again. Thanks !

  25. I am really very very very very like this theme.It is simple without redundant information disturbing visitors, but can still contain very rich content.
    But white color will cause eye fatigue, how can I change it? TKS.
    (I have replaced the background image, but it doesnot work. )

    • I’ll try to make this editable in future versions. For now you can change the value in the style.css – Line 268 #wrapper_bg

  26. I still cannot find the tool bar.
    where is it?

  27. HI,Dean.
    Thanks for this excellent theme !
    But, I am really want a blank page template for the home page, no header on the home page and have header on other pages.
    Can you help me?

  28. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

  29. Hi there :)
    I love the theme, but would like to remove the grey border. Where can I change it? Couldn’t find it.

  30. Hello! I have two questions/concerns about the theme. Firstly, the admin toolbar is not visible when logged in and viewing the site. Reading through the comments, it seems as if it was visible at one point in time. Any chance that is a random issue on my end? Secondly, the sub-sub-menu items are really hard to get to. When you attempt to hover to the sub-sub-menu item it tends to close the menu. Any fix for that as well? Thank you!

    • Hi Ryan

      The admin bar is turned off in the functions.php as it didn’t play well with my fixed menu. This might be changed in a later version.

      The menu can be fixed if you update line 716 in the style.css to

      left: 163px;

  31. Hi,

    thanks for your theme, I love it!

    Just 2 questions:

    1) Is there a way to have the 2-column layout as the default for the home page? Currently I can only activate 2-columns for other pages via the WordPress “pages” menu. But how can I make my homepage 2-columns right off the bat?

    2) Can the widgets be placed along the footer in a single-column layout?


  32. Hi,
    i would like to make a drop down menu that drops only on click. when you click parent also list children. Can you help me?

  35. Hello,
    I love theme pinzolo. I want to change responsive, Can you help me ?

  36. I was wondering, could you could tell me what changed between versions 1.1.5 and 1.2.5?

  37. Hi,
    Love the theme! I have the current theme set to display a static front page with text underneath a custom header I uploaded. But I don’t want the comment box to appear on the home page. Is there an option to turn the comment box on and off for individual pages?


  38. Another question. Is it possible to change the size of the images when they appear in the photospace responsive gallery? I have changed the max image size under settings>Responsive Photospace as well as in Settings>Media. But the gallery still doesn’t seem to be changing. The version on your sample page is larger than mine so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. The images I’m uploading are 2048 pixels wide so I know they are big enough but seem to be constrained by some master setting I can’t find. Any idea?

  39. says:

    Hi I’ve remove the sidebar in posts… how to get it back? I’m looking in the theme files but the only place where I’ve found sidebar code is in functions.php and page-2-columns.php anyone can help?

    Thanks in advance!

  40. I am in the process of setting up my website. I have installed the Pinzolo Theme from WordPress. I need help with changing the font and was wondering if you could help? I don’t think you can select a font – there doesn’t seem to be an option there – seems disabled.


  41. Hi,

    I adore this theme and i uploaded on my blog.
    But on demo, we have a summary alternative and read more option. but on my website posts are full text and no option for summary…

    How can I fix it?

  42. I was wondering where I could change the default font size for paragraph text?

    • Hi Adam. You would need to edit style.css in the theme directory. The font size and line height. Line 369.

  43. Hi Dean,

    Thanks for the Pinzolo theme!

    I read through the comments above and I am currently trying to change all fonts on my page to a different one. I believe I took the steps you mentioned on 2/10/14, but no change. I even changed the font family. Wanted to reach out to you to see if i was missing something? heres what i have below:


    wp_enqueue_style(‘poiretone’, ‘,400italic,600italic,700italic,300,600,700’);


    color: black;
    font-weight: 300;
    font-family: ‘Poiret One’, cursive;

  44. Hi, thank you for creating such a lovely layout.

    I’m having a bit of a problem with the responsive layout – when I upload a bunch of pictures, most are able to scale correctly when i change the browser size but for one or two, the picture ratio gets skewed.. I’m not using the photospace plugin.

    Also, wanted to check if a link to Home is available for the header image.


    • Hi Sharon. Can you post a link?

      • Hi I found the problem – when I inserted a picture into a wordpress post and decided to copy and paste the picture to place it in a different section of my text, the picture does not retain its responsiveness after it has been copied and pasted.

        But if I re-insert the image in the location where I want it to be instead of copying and pasting, the responsiveness qualities remain.

        Not sure if there’s another way around it!

  45. Hey two things :)
    I looooove this theme, it’s really great and it does nearly everything I need!
    Is there anyway you’ll be doing an update with a sidebar option for posts? Coz there’s all that empty space to the left of the posts, if we could edit that it’s be really cool. It’s a bit sad when people can see I have no comments on my posts haha.
    Thanks again, you’ve done a great job!

    • Hi Amber. It was designed to be single column but if you increase your image sizes they should fill the column better! You do this in Settings > Media. Your design looks great!

  46. Hi Thank you for the theme! This one was the closest to what I had in mind. Is there a way to get the text in the content to be on the left side where the title is and have the images sit on the right?

  47. Hello Thrive

    Thanks for your excellent theme.
    We are using it for our universities chemistry association blog, see the website.

    kind regards

  48. Wow, great! Love This Theme.. thanks for making it responsive…!

    I can install this module WooCommerce theme?

  50. Has the menu changed in version 1.2.7? I does not seem to be responsive like in the linked Demo which is version 1.2.5 according to style.css?

    I downloaded the theme from within the WordPress dashboard.

    This menu is derived from a the pages I have created.

    • Hi Lucas. You need to setup a menu in WordPress to get that style. Did you follow the steps in the docs?

      • Ah ok, I did not follow the docs. I simply added pages and sub-pages and the menu was generated automatically. I’ll check out the docs to get the responsive menu. Thanks :)

  51. Is it possible to remove page titles from the theme? I have tried using the “custom fields” under “Screen Options” in the page setup but the title is still showing up.

    • Hi Angela,

      You could just delete it from the page / post template. Look for

      <h1><?php the_title();?></h1>

      • Thanks. I ended up using a plugin. Another question (thanks for the quick response, btw). Is there a way to adjust the sidebar width? I just have 2 58px images that I want along the sidebar (see site homepage) and the 2 column page looks a little unbalanced.

  52. Yes you can adjust this in the css. style.css line 339

  53. Tks Dean, I have just installed for my website.

  54. i like this theme. thank you so much

  55. Simple but beautiful theme!

    Still, I have a menu problem with IE, it is not showing well, the menu items touch the edge of the wrapper, overflowing one part. This problem does not exist in other browsers.

    Also, can I change words “load more posts” at the bottom of the page?

    Once more, congrats on great theme.

  56. thanks, your content is useful to me

  57. The black and white combination looks really elegant.

  58. Nothing beats black and white color combination.

  59. Hi Dean,

    Thanks for the great template. I was wondering, how can I increase the size of my images or content on the main page / default template, at the moment it is about 700 pixels wide which is a bit too narrow. Thanks!

  60. Looks good, gonna test it out on a site tonight :)

  61. Hello,
    very nice and beautiful theme, but I have one problem and cannot solve it.
    I use Firefox to log on WordPress and my site as admin and when look my site from Firefox it’s looks normal. But, when try to see my site from another browser, Chrome or Edge, menu that I made not look like it should, on one browser is lined to the left, and on another is on right, so the items on menu are not positioned like they should.
    Can you help me with this problem?

    • Hi. Please download the latest version from this page. Or add this to the bottom of your theme css. There will be some fresh updates next year!

      nav ul{
        text-align: left !important;
      nav ul li a{
        margin-left: 20px;
        margin-right: 20px;

  62. Hi!

    Thanks for this great theme! I chose it for my personal website and set it up using previous version of WordPress. When I upgraded WP my Top Menu got squeezed. For my Top Menu I created new menu in the cockpit and put sites of my website there. With the previous WP version everything worked fine. I didn’t touch anything in .css. Is there a way I could restore the proper look of my website and Pinzolo?

    You may check how it looks like by going to

    I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
