Travel Notes

Travel Notes is a classic travel blog theme, big on images both from the featured post images and the optional Instagram integration. The theme is fully mobile responsive and supports the usual customization features, and also integrates an optional geo-tagging plugin so you can display posts by category on a map.

    • Hi Andres, this theme is still under review by the WordPress theme review team. We’ll add download links as soon as it has been approved and added to the official WordPress theme directory.

    • Hi Martin, at the moment it is taking some months for themes to get through the review and approval process. There is a big backlog.

      You could download the zip here, but keep in mind this version hasn’t been reviewed yet and may be subject to further updates.

    • Yes, of course! I should have mentioned that. We wouldn’t publish a theme these days that wasn’t mobile responsive. You can test the demo site using The Google mobile friendly testing tool here.

    • Hi Dion, make sure you ar eusing the latest version and you can control the media banner via the Customizer. Let me know if that is still not working for you.

      • Hi Charles. I have also tried the theme (version 1.0.9) and I have the same problem. Neither the header video nor the header image is shown. 🙁
        I am also wondering why the theme recommends a header video height of 0 px?!

        • Hi Sven, we have uploaded a new version which has been approved and is now available if you would like to try it.

          • Hi Charles,

            I’m also having issues with the media banner – image is not displaying. Have tried with a couple of different images and have updated to v2.0

          • Hi Henry, were you trying on infiniteweekend.co.nz or another site? I’m not able to replicate the problem on our test site so as much info as you can provide is helpful thanks, e.g. what plugins are you running?

  1. Hello,

    I just installed this theme. It is awesome. Thanks for the good job.

    I wanted to know how I can add the social icons on the navigation bar.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Leo, for the social media links just create a new menu and set the display location to “Social Links”. Tthis feature works the same way as it does on the official Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme. You just add custom links to your social profiles on this menu and the theme detects the domain and will display the appropriate icon.

  2. Hi, thank you for the awesome template! I was wondering how to remove the “Instagram Feed” from just one of my pages (Gallery). Is it possible to do? If so, would you guys be able to help me out with that? 🙂 Thank you in advance, I appreciate the support.

  3. Hi Charles,

    We are using 2.0 version in WordPress 4.7.5 and the banner is not working. We tried everything but the picture does not appear in the page. Could you please advice?

    Thanks!

    • Hello,

      make sure to create a page then set the template of that page as ‘Homepage with banner’. Go to Settings -> Reading and set that page as Front Page. Then go to Appearance -> Customize ->Header Media and now you can add video or image.

      • Hi Kris,
        I had the same issue with the header image and I followed your directions,which worked (thanks!), but now there is a page that say “Front page as banner” on the menu. How do I get rid of that?.

        • Hi Kim, you can go to Appearance > Menus in the admin and control your navigation menu there. By default it is adding all your pages to the nav, but you can control which specific pages/posts/categories appear in the nav.

  4. Hello,

    This theme is great, but 2 questions.

    – the header images was not showing when using ‘Categories’ in ‘Home page features’
    – how to add the ‘instagram’ at bottom of page like your demo. widget ?

    • Hi William, there is no tutorial page at this stage, but to be honest it is really very very simple. To achieve the layout as on the demo you just need to create a new static “home” page and select the ‘Homepage with banner’ template for that. Also make sure you set this page as the home page under Settings > Reading. Finally, upload a header image via the Customizer and this will appear as the hero image there on the home page.

      All the other options are also controlled via the Customizer and should be pretty self explanatory.

  5. How can I add instagram post on my site and also I wanted a demo of this theme like how to work with menus and all.

    Can you please provide the link to it

  6. Hi,
    I’ ve tried your theme and is very beautiful!
    One question: it’s possible to insert a footer in home page?
    How Can I Do?
    thanks.

    • Hi Alessandro, anything is possible but this would require some customisation of the theme. There is a footer template file which you can edit in the admin under Appearance > Edit. I do recommend though that you set up your site with a Child theme before making any customizations so that future updates do not overwrite your changes.

  7. Hello,

    the theme looks great, but I can’t set a header image for my home, I’ve read that I should create a new static page with the “homepage with banner” template, but the template dropdown menu doesn’t show up while creating a new page, any advice?

    Thanks!

    • Hi Edoardo, you are trying to create a new page and not a post right? Assuming so I can’t imagine why the template drop down doesn’t appear. That is a part of core WordPress rather than being something the theme controls.

      • Yes, I was trying to create a page. In the end I somehow solved the problem deleting the theme and reinstalling it directly from the wordpress theme gallery, rather than uploading the downloaded file.
