Mantra version is out 3 days now, so here’s the changelog:

  • Mobile View is now enabled by default on fresh installs
  • Finally fixed the slider mysteriously not working under certain circumstances
  • The videos automatic resize function (temporarily removed in now only triggers when the screen width is smaller than 800 pixels (and Mobile view option is enabled)
  • Mantra’s Presentation Page, when enabled, is now active no matter how the “Your front page displays” option in WordPress is set.
  • Removed the mistakenly set gray background colour for the mobile menu (the menu will now retain the colour you set)
  • Removed the “Navigation” item (mistakenly interpreted as an actual link by some mobile browsers) from the mobile menu

For a complete list of file changes, see the trac.

Mantra is a clean, highly configurable and totally free WordPress theme. For more info check out the theme's page.


    1. Tables can’t really be responsive as they have no inherent ability to move cells from one row to another. And simply shrinking them to fit the width would just make the content unreadable.

      CSS tricks do exist to make them simulate responsiveness, but we’d rather not mess with the default behaviour tables should follow as this will break more things than it fixes.

    1. We are not entitled to remove WordPress’ own copyright link. If you want to do that, the blood is on your hands…
      But on a more serious note, if you want to remove that line just to hide the fact that you’re running WordPress, it’s pointless. Everything in the page source points to WordPress, so hiding that fact is next to impossible.

  1. Hi, I am new to WordPress. Dont know anything about child themes or how to make or use them
    I have done a lot of customization so far. I have backed up stylesheet and a couple others. Also export Mantra Settings. Is this enough to not lose anything to do upgrade? I have been avoiding theme upgrades out of fear of losing all my work.
    What will happen when I upgrade? What will go away?
    What can I do to protect my site to do upgrade?
    And what about Theme Options like background, header, etc… I dont thik those are all included in Mantra Settings, etc. Please help.

    I cant keep avoiding updates. Thanks

  2. Hi,

    Really like your theme, love how flexible it is.

    My only problem is that I cannot fix the space between paragraph. I think it’s not clear enough when you have another paragraph and I don’t like having indent.

    Other than that, very good job and thank you for letting me use this theme.


    1. I’m having the same problem. I was able to change the padding between paragraphs on the last version of Mantra, but although I’m using a child theme, that particular change didn’t stick, and now I can’t remember how I did it. (I’m a beginner at this!)

      1. Figured it out – you can adjust the spacing between paragraphs by adding this code to the bottom of your stylesheet (style.css).

        #content p {
        font-size: 15px;
        line-height: 1.2em;
        padding-bottom: 10px;

        Adjust the number of pixels for padding-bottom – the bigger the number is, the more space you’ll get between paragraphs.

  3. Sidebar / widgets gone on update to Mantra v.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function dynamic_sidebar() in /home/content/46/10254346/html/wp-content/themes/mantra/sidebar.php on line 63

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_active_sidebar() in /home/content/46/10254346/html/wp-content/themes/mantra/sidebar-footer.php on line 17

    Any assistance / help appreciated!
