Parabola 1.3.1 and the little things

Not much to say about this version. Just some small cosmetic changes, a new social icon (Steam) and a small fix for multi-line breadcrumbs.

We also disabled the auto-redirect to Parabola’s settings page after theme install / update. We wouldn’t normally remove this feature but it’s part of the new regulations over at so we complied. Anyway here’s the same info in list form.


  • added Steam social icon
  • disabled auto-redirect to theme’s settings page after install(requested by WordPress)
  • some cosmetic changes (pagination, multi-page pages/posts pagination, sticky posts, author info)
  • fixed long multi-line breadcrumbs overlapping (reported by StelleDiPolvere)

    Hi! I’m trying to make a page for my archives, and while I see an archive.php file in Parabola that looks like a template, when I go out to Pages > Add New Page, there is no archive template available in the drop-down menu on the sidebar. Is there a way to enable this? Thanks!

    • Zed says:

      “Archives” are in fact category (pages). And all you need is to add them to the menu.

      • Stacia says:

        I don’t know what that means. I’ll ask in the support forums, thanks!

        My question to you: WHAT is it I need to add to the menu?

        I went to Appearance > Menus, clicked on Categories, and saw all my categories listed. To test what I think you suggested, I clicked the category called “uncategorized” and then the Add To Menu button. I then titled that “Archives” instead of “uncategorized” and it appears at the top of my blog with the rest of the pages. But “uncategorized” of course doesn’t include every single post on the blog, i.e. it’s not archives. So that’s what I meant when I said I don’t understand what you suggested. What am I missing?

        • Zed says:

          There is no “all posts archive” section in WordPress. You can only see an “archive” of a “category” (by browsing that category and using the pagination to go back to older posts).
          The theme’s archive.php file is in fact a file used by WordPress to display non-category based posts lists (like a specific tag, a specific date, so on).

    Featured images no longer show up while viewing posts inside categories. While viewing posts in a category, I can only see the names of posts, no pictures. This update completely broke that for me. It used to work perfectly in version 1.0.

    Hi, great theme!
    I have one problem – the presentation slides don’t work for me.
    Can you please check it and give me an advice.
    Here’s the blog I’m building –

    This is a great theme,

    If I wanted to have 3 -4 columns on a page is there a short code for this?

  6. Does this theme have a search textbox? Because I am not able to see it in the settings.

    This is a lovely layout, but I cannot get the layouts of 2 column right sidebar to work. Am I missing something?

    • Zed says:

      ’2 columns sidebar on the right’ means one content column plus the sidebar. I hope you aren’t expecting a two content columns plus a sidebar – this is what the magazine layout is for.

  8. Gina Lim says:

    How do I show my post on the presentation page?

  9. Rima says:

    I can’t seem to activate the slider with this theme. I made sure that the posts I am using have a feature image attached but it just doesn’t display on my homepage.

  10. definitio says:

    Please, can you tell me how to hide the post tags on the homepage?

  11. Frank says:

    In wordpress, When I click on “Parabola Settings” I can’t manage to “open” any of the options (layout settings, header settings, etc)… When I try to click my mouse arrow is the “select text” one (like I) and not the “link hand”. Unable to use on any browser. Everything is up to date and no errors/warnings. Any advice?

    • Kay says:

      Don’t you also have a light blue message-box at the top of the settings page informing you that there are some problems with jQuery? Anyway, try disabling all plugins and see if the page works then.

    Don’t like how the columns on the presentation page now sites side by side when viewed on a smartphone. The old version stacked them which made for a much nicer looking mobile site.

    This theme is great, thanks so much! If you have the chance, I would absolutely love it if the GitHub icon was added to the social media options. Thanks!
