    I’m so disapointed

    I downloaded it for my WP-blog and it doesn’t have any of the features that it shows here

    OK Menus but it works so and so… The bottom widget doesn’t work as it should

    I would like to be able to download the same version featured at .com also for .org!!!

    The latest 1.5.7 version is a slightly modified copy of the one on .com. We’ll be uploading a newer version shortly which will sync a few more of the most recent changes.

    Hi otto, can you please highlight some of the major functional changes made to the matala theme?

    Now I’m soooo happy. Not that my Matala look like Matala but it has it’s base. Thanx!!!!

    Next Q how do I translate the theme? I want it in Swedish… Do I have to go through all files or can I use a language file? If I can translate through a file I could share the file with other Swedes.

    I customized the background for a friend’s blog but when we uploaded the theme, the menu strip doesn’t seem to be expanding like it should and the little ink circle selector is acting all wonky. Not appearing on pages other than the home page. The site I’m having issues with is If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Thank you!

    I love this theme. I want to use it but I need to be able to put my social media widgets somewhere…does this beautiful theme allow for this?

    Stephanys: Your cusomheader looks cut of in my resolution 1900 wide. Otherwise it looks great and seems to be working fine now.

    BellerBaker: There are several widget areas for you to place your social media Widgets I have Twitter there for ex.

    HELP: I still don’t know how to translate the theme to Sully Swedish without having to hard code it in each file …

    I’m having trouble with the ‘bottom bits’ of the columns. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong or where to look? I thought something was wrong with the bg-secondary-bottom.png/bg-primary-bottom.png, but the css looks ok to me.

    Any help much appreciated! Thanks!

    desibel: Did they work before you started to change background and top?
    And did you replace the top and Bg from the admin panel or through FTP?

    If you change it through the admin panel it will strip it too lok like yours. But if you replace the original images through FTP I think that might change your problem. Not sure where you went wrong though, this is just a guess from my side.

    @miss_ww: I replaced all files through ftp and i remember them being there before i replaced the images. It seems as if they’re only visible if the text in both columns is long enough, so they’re back now! Thanks though!



    Matala Template – Can anyone point me in the direction of removing the borders from images on Pages? Cheers.

    Hi, total newbie.. I have a question, I have the matala theme thru and I am happy with everything except when you change the background it just becomes white squares. Can I design a background on photoshop which has the torn edge look and if what is the best dimensions (pixels) so I can redesign the top atleast?
