    Very very nice theme. But how can I add a hero post, the theme has not customizer option. Please update it. thank you very much.

    1. Hi Mario, try flagging one of your posts as “Sticky” using the regular WordPress sticky posts feature.

        Hi Charles, thank you for your reply. The theme is really wonderful. But I can not make it as your demo site, which has a hero post and footer widget.
        I tried to flagging post as Sticky, it does not make it a hero post in homepage at all.
        Could you please update the theme, is it because am I using basic theme instead of pro-version?
        Thank you.

        1. Hi Mario, this theme doesn’t have any footer widgets, but I did forget to clarify that you must create a new static page, assign it the “Home” template and then under Settings > Reading assign this page as the front page. It will then show your sticky post in the featured position top center.

    Very nice theme, congratulations. But how can I add widgets Thanks a lot.

    1. Charles Coxhead says:

      Hi Mark, this theme doesn’t have a widget area on the posts page just on the default homepage/blog page and the archives. It is poorly labelled in the Widget admin as “Posts Widget Area”, which is an oversight. We’ll update that label.

      Any widgets you add to that section though will appear on the home/blog page as well as blog archive pages (categories and date archives etc).

        Thanks for the reply Charles. πŸ™‚

  3. Mark says:

    Sorry for the inconvenience, how can I add a post in the top center ???
    Thank you. πŸ˜‰

    1. No problem Mark. TO feature a post front and center like the demo you just need to flag it as a “sticky post” in WordPress. This is a core WordPRess feature. Learn more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtNJx-m5_r8

    How is it possible to remove the 3 Lines, that are supposed to open the menu, in the mobile version of looper?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Danijel, try adding the following CSS to the Additional CSS section of the Customizer.
      .navbar-toggle {display: none}

    Hey Charles, it’s an incredibly nice theme. Do you know how to embed a leaderboard ad under the main sticky post, like it is on the demo site (bestgaming.tips)?


    1. Thanks Jimmy, the demo site is actually running the auto-ads from Adsense so we didn’t specifically embed the ad there, we just added the code and Adsense automagically places ads where they think they’ll work best.

    Great theme..but can you tell me how I can replicate the rectangular header and footer boxes like the bestgaming.tips demo..I can’t seem to customize those graphics..thanks again

    1. Hi Marcus, I’m not sure what you mean. Do you mean the featured post on the home page? That is done by using the native WordPress sticky posts feature. Make a post sticky and it will be featured at the top of the page. If you are talking about rectangular ad blocks that isn’t the theme…bestgaming.tips is running Google Adsense with the auto ad unit feature.

    Hi Charles, thanks a lot for the theme!

    How do you add preview images to the Popular section on the sidebar?

    Hello, wpdevshed, I am using your Looer wordpress theme for my gaming website. It is an amazing theme but need to be some customization. Currently iam using your latest 1.7 theme version and now I am facing some problem in Navigation menu. Where my one of Category’s sub Category work fine but its main Category won’t open. You can check my website for better understanding

    1. Hi KingsLayer, I don’t quite understand. Can you please send a screenshot of the main menu from the admin. I’m curious what categories and page you have nested in your menu.

    The template looks very good.

    I just wonder why it has two H1 headers in code?

    This isn’t correct usage. One H1 heading is valid and any number of lower row headings is valid.

    In addition, it isn’t possible to enter text into H1 because they are responsible for logo image at top and bottom of page.

    1. Hi Hall, yes strictly speaking you’re quite right. We might look at improving that in a future release. Practically though I don’t think it will make much difference to the theme…if you google any competitive keyword and look at the use of H tags across the top ranking pages you will find some that do it strictly correct and some that don’t. As a signal it has a very small impact.

    Hi !
    Thanks for your theme, fit perfectly for me : https://flat6-team-eracing.fr
    Just one suggestions :
    Can you add a slider if we have more than one post sticky ?
    Thank’s !

    1. Hi Simon, glad you like the theme. That is not a bad idea. I’ve added it to the list, though I’m not sure when we’ll get a new version out the door.
