Cryout Serious Theme Settings

This plugin is designed to inter-operate with our Mantra, Parabola, Tempera, Nirvana themes and restore their advanced settings pages which we had to remove due to the Customize-based settings enforcement.

It is provided as a free download for everyone using our themes to restore the theme configuration ability. The plugin is compatible with all the mentioned themes and can be installed only once no matter which theme is used.


When installed and enabled, the plugin will automatically reactivate the settings page in the following theme releases:

  • Mantra version 2.5 and newer
  • Parabola version 1.6 and newer
  • Tempera version 1.4 and newer
  • Nirvana version 1.2 and newer

You can read more about the mandatory Customizer-based settings and our decision in this announcement.

On WordPress 4.4-RC1 and newer it will restore the settings pages to working condition in some older Parabola, Tempera and Mantra versions. However we strongly discourage the use of such old releases on public sites. For more info on the WordPress 4.4 compatibility issue see this announcement.
