Tempera 1.0.1(.1) gets a bit shorter and then grows back again

They’re here – Tempera’s first (clumsy) steps after she has all grown up. On her own now, learning and adapting in this harsh cruel world of wild, user unfriendly, commercial themes, Tempera tries to make a life for herself by helping the world become a better place.

So, clumsy as they may be, Tempera took the first two steps (the second one mostly caused by a bad nudge we gave her at the first step) – but now she’s fine…

So here are the 1.0.1 and changelogs:

  • removed arbitrary max-width  (html .mceContentBody) from Dashboard editor CSS (as it created confusion on the width and alignment of content)
  • moved slider caption to bottom 20% instead of top for mobile devices
  • added option to disable latest news in the theme settings page
  • replaced the Presentation Page’s “Nothing Found” message when there are no published posts with an explanatory placeholder message
  • improved behaviour by hiding the slider caption title / text when left empty in the settings
  • the Presentation Page columns widget area function is now pluggable via child theme
  • add ‘color schemes’ to WordPress theme description
  • forced footer to window bottom *** this caused issues and was created to undo
Tempera is a free WordPress theme, created by Cryout Creations, that is responsive and seriously configurable. For more info check out the theme's page.


  1. ho usato il template, da nessuna parte ere scritto che non si poteva usare liberamente, e dopo un mese mi ha modificato tutte le accentate con caratteri strani!
    template inutilizzabile … peccato era bello ma la policy è discutibile

  2. Hi Zed, the social media links are still not working and the sliders are working oddly. Some sliders have the excerpts with ‘Read more’ links, others have no Read more and when you click on the image, the spinning square appears the same as it does when you click on social media links. ?

  3. Hello, When I go to add media and create gallery album pictures is vertically in post, but when I preview the post pictures are fine (horizontally). Also I can’t edit pictures, when I click on the picture I can only resize the picture with dragging … How can I fix this ? Is there an update problem or something else ? Please for help and sorry for my bad english

  4. This latest update broke our site. It seems to be a problem with the length of the page.

    Most of the pages only have a bit of the background they should and the footer menu is missing.
    Also, the slider on the presentation page doesn’t appear even though the settings for it are exactly the same.

    Any help would be appreciated. Otherwise, we may have to switch to another theme.

  5. Just wanted to drop by and say that this theme is amazing and the recent updates added things I wanted but hadn’t gotten around to doing yet (ex. option to hide tags from under posts on the front page).

    Thank you for an amazingly gorgeous, customizable, and easy-to-use theme.

  6. I have a small issue with this theme. I have it set up to have three columns on the front page. On the right side I have links with graphics in a widget. However the last link carries over the url to the center column where there is nothing present except another text widget which has no links. It also creates a blank circle for teh siocial links and has the same link there as well, but not on the side. Is there a way to remove this so that when the mouse hovers over that blank section the link doesn’t make that column active as well as not having another link made in the social media section on the footer?

  7. Zed, What has happened to the social media links? At first they didn’t work, then they did. Now they don’t. I really like this theme and find it a pleasure to work with, but my new readers can’t connect.

  8. I have only one question. I want to buy your template but first I need to know whether it is possible to set semi transparent background section of container
    Thank you for your response

    1. Tempera is free, you don’t have to buy it to try it out. Just install it and play around with CSS to make the container semi-transparent (hint: background: rgba(r,g,b,opacity) ).

  9. Dear Zed, thank you for Tempera. I need the help. On my presentation page I put 4 posts, but actually I wrote its more, but the next page doesn’t display any post, “the page was not found”. What problem is? What should I do to solve the problem? Where my posts are disappearing? thank you very mush in advance

  10. I’ve rebuilt one of my websites a dozen times over the past 24 months. Why? The themes used couldn’t or wouldn’t hold up under the weight of multiple plugins, widgets, pages and post. The long short of it is that they just broke and I had to start all over again. Frustration on steroids is putting it mildly. I used free and premium themes (over a dozen) looking for a stable chassis that could take the weight. Tempera so far has delivered. It has been the only one that has delivered the features I need combined with a resilient endurance.Thanks so much. Good work. The only plugin I have been unable to use and would very much like to is “popup press” by Code Canyon. Any suggestions from support would be welcome.

    Once again, good job!

  11. Hi,

    I had set my presentation columns to appear 3 across, and when I look at the website, they had changed into a single vertical line. Any insight as to what might be happening?

  12. Have a glitch in my Tempera Child which was installed by someone else who is no longer to be found. I need help with the text margins. They go out to the limits of the page. Can you please take a look at my site (www.omegaenvironmentalconsulting.com) and comment on how I might fix it. I am at my wits end. Thank you.

    1. Hi Kathleen, this appears to be a content-padding setting which can be found at the tempera settings>graphic settings>content margin>padding left/right. What is the number there? Could you change it to 20 and see what happens? For sure I can fix this for you if it isn’t working. Just let me know.
