Mantra 2.3.3 stays in line

Mantra receives a small maintenance update, tweaking and changing things here and there.

The most noteworthy thing related to the 2.3.3 update (but not part of the update itself) is the corrupt Mantra archive lurking around on WordPress’ servers. It hides there in the dark waiting to jump out and break your site. One of its evil purposes is to leave your pages content-less (but be ready for other nasty surprises as well).

The fix? Well since the problem is on WordPress’ servers, our power is limited. What we can do is recommend you to create an export of Mantra’s settings, delete it and attempt to reinstall it. If the issue re-occurs, delete again and try a manual install using the theme archive available here.

Edit: WordPress fixed the archive and nobody should receive a corrupt file on future updates to this version.


  • updated to the new WP 3.8 “fluid-layout” and “fixed-layout” tags
  • 3 social icons are now enabled by default in two theme areas
  • fixed import/export settings not working on some rare occasions
  • hopefully fixed smileys getting huge in captions
  • changed default table cell alignment to top (instead of bottom)
  • fixed Google fonts to correctly handle SSL websites

  • corrected site title not resizing enough on the smallest mobile devices
  • updated French translation
  • added Czech translation

    Open Graph Warnings That Should Be Fixed: Extraneous Property

    Objects of this type do not allow properties named ‘template’.

    Parser Mismatched Metadata The parser’s result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: ‘template’

    Love love this theme, saved my ass! Totally a coffee on order 😉 Is anyone else having an issue where you cannot zoom in on a mobile device? It is beautifully responsive but I tested on multiple devices that I cannot zoom in on tiny text. I wonder if I am missing some setting. Cheers guys!

    I am loving Mantra.
    Thanks heaps guys. Just having trouble finding a compatible widget for a drop down menu… only show as a list in the sidebar. I want it hidden until click on the categories widget. that works fine. Any tips greatly appreciated. Look forward to next update and removing the social in top right too. But I can wait 🙂 cheers

    Greetings. Coffee’s on it’s way if you can help me work through not being able to upload media on my presentation page. I loaded 3 out of 4, albeit with a bit of struggling, but the fourth just won’t upload. I click ” Select/Upload” and I just get kicked out to nowhere land. Same with trying to add another image in my slides.

    I returned to this theme, I had abandoned some time because now i have a new website selling with WooCommerce. Good surprise: everything worked without any adaptation ! except, as told everyone icons of social networks!
    but it is remarkable that WooCommerce works fine without doing anything!

    I have a suggestion:

    It is a new post updates where I changed the code – to do the updates manually – because a lot of people then analyzes the files where they are looking for change or applying them again.

    the width of the left sidebar to use the text is smaller than the right. Larger margin has left sidebar and the left side of the text content of the central panel
