    I have been using Simple Catch since first launching my site and now I have switched over to the Responsive Create Theme that you have designed. First off, great work thank you so much for providing such great services. I have a couple of questions though:

    Here is my URL:

    1. I would like to have the main content on the non-static page with just one column with the sidebar on the left, the same as it appears when clicking through to a category page such as Recipes:
    This is in effort to attain a front page more like Simple Catch is set up.
    Specifically, I’m looking for posts only with the Story category to be on the front page.

    2. Hiding the Featured Image after clicking through to the post:

    3. How can I extend the Read More link to include more characters, this goes hand-in-hand with Number 1. I’m trying to make it so I can show images that are in the posts on the Front and Category pages (On posts without a Featured Image).
    As an example:
    Is a post that has no writing and only the title will appear outside of it’s URL. I’m not sure if this is an issue with the character count or something else that is hiding the images on purpose.
    As another example:
    Has a paragraph and then an image. While using Simple Catch I was able to have the Read More after the image, but that doesn’t happen here. Even my introductory paragraph is being cut short.

    4. Is there a way to change the FavIcon? I can’t seem to find a location to specify the image I’d like.

    5. After going to the Theme Instructions:
    I found that under the Custom CSS #, it gives the road “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Custom CSS Options” but I do not see the Custom CSS Options anywhere. I’m guessing that it the area with the same name in Simple Catch, but if I’m wrong and this isn’t something missing from the creator’s part, could you point me in the right direction?

    6. Finally, probably unrelated to the theme, is there a specific URL for the entire archive? Currently my Archive link in the menu is only set up to handle the 2014 year:

    I hope this is not too much to ask help for.
    Thanks for your help!


    @CollegeCook: Thank for your appreciation

    1. It’s design to make masonry layout by default. Sorry there is no option to change layout in Create Free version. For that you need to upgrade to Pro version. If you have Create Pro theme then you can change your homepage layout from “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Layout Options => Frontpage Posts Layout”

    2. This feature is also there only in Create Pro where you can disable or change the image size from “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Layout Options => Single Page/Post Image Layout”. In free version, you can just hide it by adding in the following css in “Appearance => Theme options => Custom CSS” box:
    .single .entry-thumbnail { display: none; }

    3. Read more/Excerpt option is there only in Pro version at this stage. So, you need to upgrade it and manage through “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Excerpt Options”

    4. Icons option is there only in Pro version. “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Icons Options”

    5. Sorry that is option there in Pro version. In free version, for Custom CSS, you can use Catch Web Tools plugin.

    6. No options for that. You might need to add in custom template by building child theme or maybe there is plugin for that

    We are in the process of giving more option in Create Free theme. But at this time, it is on hold as there is account issue with We are in the process of migrating from Sakinshrestha account to Catchthemes account and then we will add more feature. Sorry for the trouble. Right now Create Free theme is just a basic theme which work as default demo but not much option.


    Thank you so much for your help and quick response! That helps a lot.
