Does it work with the theme that I am using?

Our tests indicate that the widgets work well with most themes that are well coded. You may need some minor custom CSS with themes that hijack the styling for heading tags by using !important keyword.

The demo site is best recreated with a theme that supports a full width page template without sidebars. The widgets can still be used in the widgetized sidebars of pages of default template.

How to enable the dark version for any widget?

In SiteOrigin page builder, add a row wrapper for the widget, edit row and check the option ‘Dark Background?’ under ‘Row Styles’ > Design.

If not using a page builder, you can wrap the widget with a div of class ‘lsow-dark-bg’ to invoke dark version. Make sure you set the appropriate dark background for the wrapper div.

Seeing ‘Missing Widget’ error upon import.

Please make sure the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle plugin is installed/activated and enable the widgets from Plugins > SiteOrigin Widgets in WordPress admin.

My portfolio does not show any items.

Pls install and activate the Portfolio Post Type plugin to enable custom post type Portfolio.

Reviews

Great Plugin & Great Support. Favorite bundle of Page Builder widgets.

I made a request to change the behavior of a widget to be more compatible with my use case (while making sure others wouldn’t be negatively affected), and I found it was included in the very next release just a few days later.

There are some really fantastic widgets in this bundle, and I must say that seeing the developer is active on the project is important to me.

Excellent

Great addition to SO widget collection, easy to use and lots of nice features. Support is great, prompt and helpful as well, which is sometimes an issue with free plugins, but not in this case.

Great job!

broke my site

I added livemesh post carousel to a post and it took forever to load. then my site was disconnected from the server!

Perfect

After spending a long time trying to find a plugin that would allow me to make a good portfolio on the homepage of my website, I finally found this one. Absolutely miles better than any of the others (even paid ones). Easily customisable and user-friendly.
