WP Barrister

WP Barrister is another very corporate design. Again it is especially suited to professional services companies

that want to showcase their people on the website. Bundled with our own People plugin the Barrister theme makes it easy to deploy a staff profile page in an attractive and contemporary mason style layout featuring profile pictures and social media links, plus links to individual profile pages where each staff member can have their own biography.

The theme is of course entirely responsive, comes with a range of templates for static pages, alt home page layouts and the usual post and archive templates. It also offers a range of easy customization options, including:

  • The ability to add your own logo
  • Easily add links to your favorite social media profiles
  • Choose from one of 3 geometric background textures, or upload your own!
  • Optional slide background images on the home page
  • Change the primary theme colors to anything you like
  • Choose whether to display the author bio box at the bottom of all posts

    Hi, Charles!
    I like your theme. It’s so elegant. I have almost finished setting it up, but I can’t get the homepage slider working. It displays the text and excerpt, but no image.
    Am I doing something wrong or…
    Thanks for your theme, again.

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Zekerijah, if you are using the home page template for the home page (and you don’t have to) then you can just add a regular WordPress image gallery to the content and the template will automatically slide these images in the background. We just uploaded a video which shows this in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mx0AQh0_IAk

    Hi, Charles!
    Thanks for your reply. I watched the youtube clip you posted and id does great promotion for your theme.

  4. how to create a slider (i had two sliders revolution and meta slider and how to make meet the team page? i cant make this ….or how to start with it….thankx

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Elroy, the theme doesn’t have a slider in the traditional sense. If you use the alt home page template you can add a regular wordpress image gallery to the page content and the template will slide the gallery images in the background.

      To create the team page you must first install the People plugin which is prompted when you first install the theme. If you dismissed this prompt you’ll need to reinstall the theme and be sure to follow through on the prompts to install the people plugin…

      This plugin adds a new custom post type to manage people/staff profiles. Once you have created some people profiles you need to create a new “meet the team” page and apply the people profile template to that page…this will then show all the profiles you have created, each linking to an individual profile page.

        Is it possible to install slider (Cyclone Slider 2) at Home page (Alt_Homepage) in wpb-baner or in wpb-content area.

        1. Avatar Ryan S says:

          Hi @slawek,

          Thanks for using our theme

          Yeah, but you have to update alt_homepage to add shortcode or template function in there to display the slider on that specific page.

          Hope that helps

  5. Avatar Texan says:

    While using the alt_homepage template, I cannot display an image in the body of the page using standard HTML.

    If I convert the page back to a People Profile Template, it appears no problem. But I want this home page to have the alt sidebar at the bottom, so that isn’t a good option.


    1. Avatar Ryan S says:

      Hi @texan,

      Thanks for using our theme

      Sorry but I’m a bit confuse what you really did on your site or what you’re trying to accomplish

      I have few questions
      1. You’re using the page for Front Page?
      2. Where did you add your HTMl code?


      1. Avatar Texan says:

        Yes, the alt_homepage template page is being used for the front page (home page) of the website.

        The HTML code (img src=”mylink”) is being added to the main body of that page. When the page is converted to “People Profile” template – the image appears, without any other changes. When the page is converted to “Alt_Homepage” the image disappears.

        1. Avatar Ryan S says:

          Then one thing is certain you’ve added the code in wrong file, instead of Alt_Homepage page template you’ve added it in People Profile.

        2. Charles Charles says:

          Hi Texan, the answer is simply that the alt-home page template doesn’t support images. It automatically strips out anything but plain text. This is intentional and if it issn’t doing this on the Profile template then that is an oversite on that template. Changing this behaviour is possible but will require some customization of the template. We can do this but it is beyond the level of support we can provide here in the comments. If you need our help please email us at help@wpdevshed.com and we’ll work out an estimate. Thanks.

    Hi Tex!

    Awesome theme (WP Advocate), looks and works wonderfully!

    Slight confusion with the Gallery for the front page slider – I’ve added the gallery to the page content (looks like shortcode [gallery ids="29,28,25,27"]) and the slider b/g works fine. The problem is that the image thumbs are also showing up on the page with the text in the transparent box – any way to hide the thumbs?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hmm, that’s odd. Can you share a link or screenshot?

      1. Avatar Roger battersby says:

        Sure its at sample.digitalisotope.com

        1. Charles Charles says:

          Thanks Roger. Have you edited the template at all? Or do you have any other gallery plugins enabled (eg. Nextgen)?

          I’m not sure why this is happening. If you check out the home page of our demo you can see this in action http://wpadvocate.org/ – in this example I simply added a gallery to the body of the page and the template is sliding the images, but it doesn’t show the thumbnails. We’ve coded this template to only show static text.

          1. Avatar Roger battersby says:

            Got it!!! Apologies for wasting your time mate!

            It was because I’d changed a line in the content-intro.php file

            as i was trying to keep the formatting line break to split the text into two paras. I guess the smartest thing to do is either edit the wp_advocate_excerpt function to find another way to preserve html formatting… OR actually thinking about it I can just hard code the text into the template (content-intro.php)

          2. Avatar Roger battersby says:

            FROM echo wp_advocate_excerpt TO echo the_content

          3. Avatar Roger battersby says:

            Charles – thanks for the support dude – got it all sorted!

            In case anyone’s interested…
            To keep the paragraph formatting in the intro text I wound up doing 2 things:
            1) In the file (content-intro.php) use the_content() instead of wp_advocate_excerpt()
            2) Add the line add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘strip_shortcodes’); to functions.php

            Sorry to hack your code guys – I couldn’t come close to what you folks do – sincerely appreciated!

    How can I change the copyright information in the footer?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi windomearle, this will require you edit the footer.php template file. If you do start making changes to template files, please make sure you set up the theme as a child theme first. If you need help with this email us at help@wpdevshed.com and we can work up an estimate.

    How to change the number of people profiles appearing in People section? Right now it only shows 10, but I need more than 30. Thank you.

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Konstantin, in the current version of the theme this is tied to the posts per page setting under Settings > Reading. Defaults to 10. We’ll probably create a separate setting for this in the next version.

      1. Avatar Konstantin says:

        If I do that it changes the number of posts on one page for the entire website. Is there a way to specify the number of posts exclusively for the people page?

        1. Charles Charles says:

          Hi Konstantin, good question. There is no setting for that it would require some theme customization…which would require you set up the theme as a child theme first to ensure local customizations were not overwritten in future theme updates. It’s a good point though, I’ve added this to the list of features we should enable for the next version.

  10. Thanks for sharing the theme! Works perfect for photo projects as well, as it shows all the pictures on the front page. I have one concern though. Is it possible to remove the menubar where the logo is located? Either that or possibility to add graphics on the whole “bar”.

    Best regards,
    Michael Fristedt

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Michael, there is no admin setting for this. You’ll need to customize the header.php template to do this. If you are making local customizations please be sure to set up the theme as a child theme first.

    Fantastic theme, was wondering if you could help me with a problem though?

    I’m using a custom menu via Appearance > Menus and although Pages show just fine, when I add a custom link it shows on the menu dashboard but not on the actual site.

    If I go to Appearance > Customize > Navigation and select my menu the custom link does appear, however the parent pages no longer drop down and it shows all my pages, making the navigation very complicated!

    Any help would be much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Aberrans, that sounds very odd. Can you provide a link to your site so we can check it out? Or some screenshots of the problem?

      1. Avatar Aberrans says:

        Thank you, website is: http://katiestainer.com/

        1. Charles Charles says:

          Hi Abberans, I’m not sure what the problem is here. Under Appearance > Menus, have you clicked on the Manage Locations tab to ensure that your custom menu is assigned to the primary menu location?

          1. Avatar Aberrans says:

            Have tried that too – has the same effect as doing the same through Appearance > Customise ๐Ÿ™ Have left it like this so you can see that all the links are showing now instead of the parents having drop downs. Solves the custom link not showing problems but makes the navigation a bit messy!

          2. Charles Charles says:

            Hmmm, I hesitate to ask, but have you indented (or nested) the sub pages in your custom menu? It looks like they are all set as top level links. You need to click and drag the sub pages in the custom menu so they are indented below the top level pages. The theme will then display the indented pages as drop downs.

          3. Avatar Aberrans says:

            I had indented the sub pages in the menu but decided to start over from scratch and create a new menu (though i’d tried this before this time I deleted ALL the old menus first), again with indented pages, and this seems to have solved the problem! No idea why all the other menus with indented pages didn’t work but its all fine now ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you soo much for you help, I love this theme!

  14. Avatar Jessica says:

    Hi! We switched to this theme and really like it, but we’re trying to figure out how to designate one post or page to stay static on the homepage in the red box (a welcome message), while the smaller posts at the bottom can update over time with what’s new. When I was demoing the theme it appeared we could do that (one of the reasons we chose the theme) but now I can’t figure out how. Is there a setting or something that I’m missing? Thanks!

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Jessica, if you are using a stock standard WP settings with your home page showing your posts (and are not using one of the Alt_homepage templates) then the home page will by default show your latest posts with the very latest featured at the top. Just mark one of your posts as sticky and it will stick to that top spot.

  15. Avatar Jessica says:

    Thanks! Do you know how I mark it as sticky? That’s not a setting I’ve seen on there. For alt_homepage, would that solve the problem or should I stick with the default homepage template?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Jessica, here’s a how-to on the Sticky posts feature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtNJx-m5_r8

      I don’t think the Alt_homepage template is what you want as it doesn’t show the latest posts.

        Thank you!! Definitely worked.

    New to wordpress, love your theme. Is there a way to reduce the size of the text in the slider? For some reason the header text is showing up huge, taking up most of the slider space. In addition, there is a lot of white space in the slider, is there a way to reduce that? Thank you.

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Crystal, thanks, glad you like the theme. I’m not 100% clear on your issue as the Barrister theme doesn’t have a slider. Can you provide a link to your site or a screenshot of the problem?

      1. Avatar Crystal says:

        Yes, sorry. The theme is actually Newswire.

        1. Charles Charles says:

          Hi Crystal, I could still use a link to your site or a screenshot of the issue in question. The design does feature a pretty big headline for the slider (see the demo), though I’m not sure what you mean by a lot of whitespace. I’m not clear if “huge” means the title text is bigger than it should be or if you want to change the design.

  17. Avatar Crystal says:

    Hi Charles, thanks for reply. Title text is big. I did play with the font options and that made it a bit better. The white space I am referring to is the space above and below the text I have showing in the slider.

    1. Avatar Ryan S says:

      Hi @crystal

      You can remove the white space before the slider in style.css at line #2879 or in .slide-title selector, just reduce or remove the margin-bottom, yes both margin-bottom, hope that helps

        Thanks for the fast reply.

        That is how I have it set up but it is showing as 2 columns vs one with the widgets below.

        1. Charles Charles says:

          Hi Marsha, it sounds like you have not applied the Alt-homepage template to you new static homepage. In the right hand column of the page edit screen you will see an option to change from the default template. Once you have done this then go to Appearance > Widgets and add the widgets you want to the dedicated homepage widget area.

        2. Avatar Ryan S says:

          The reason is that is how the page(page.php) template works, if you’d like to have fullwidth only and or footer area then try other page template, or you can create your own frontpage.php file, but I suggest using page template instead.

    I am having trouble adding the Blog function as it appears on the demo site. I don’t see a blog template file to use.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Neil, assuming you have created a static home page using the home page template then you just need to create a new static page (call it “blog”) then go to Settings > Reading and assign it as the blog page. Easy ๐Ÿ™‚

      //main content
      <div id="sidebar" class="widget-area col300">
      // sidebar content

          Currently the Menu Bar is already widen or full width(based on parent DIV or the wrapper), for background colour it’s a bit tricky and yes it’s achievable
          1. View each page source and copy the page-ID/or simply visit your page and copy ID in there instead
          2. Use this code repeatedly

          body.page-id-7 nav[role=navigation] div.menu{ background-color: green; } //where 7 is the page ID

          If that’s techie for you, you can email our support at help@wpdevshed.com

    Thanks Ryan for your answer, but I`ve a little problem. I canยดt programming php to create the template file.
    It is possible to send the template file or is this special support?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Dennis, this is more support than we can provide free I’m afraid. If you need professional help you can reach us at help@wpdevshed.com and we can estimate the work and give you a quote. Cheers, Charles.

    Dear Charles,

    I love your theme and currently using it. But I got trouble trying to show my AdSense. This is the error report when I’m trying to manage the Ads.

    “Your site appears to use one or more custom templates on single pages. We do not recommend using the Google Publisher Plugin to place ads on custom templates. Your ads may not appear correctly or reliably. All other templates are supported.”

    Is there a way to correct this problem?

    Thank you.

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Leo, I’ve never used the Google Publisher Plugin before, so I’m not familiar with how it works and can’t comment on why it doesn’t support custom templates (which are common on many themes). The only solution I can suggest is to not use the plugin and instead manage the Adsense placement manually in the template files, though this does mean customizing the templates in which case you also need to set up the theme as a child first.

    Hi there!
    Beautiful theme, does exactly what I hoped it would.
    One question though: in your demo, there’s an number of widgets on what appears like the alt_homepage-template. There the pictures fill the whole width of the widget. I use the jetpack image widget and I have a rather ugly white border on every side. Tried the text widget with HTML-Code – same result. Then I changed the CSS. That did the trick on my monitor, but broke the theme on my mobile. There surely is a more simple way to do this? I’m probably just being stupid… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Jesse, we use this plugin for those widgets on the demo: http://wordpress.org/plugins/image-widget/

        Great, that worked. Sometimes it’s so easy…

  37. Avatar Jesse says:

    One more thing: coming from wp barrister’s theme page at WordPress I noticed there’s a wrong link: devhsed.com instead of devshed.com. Thought You might want to fix this…
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Thanks Jesse, we need to fix that!

    Hi Charles,
    this is an amazing work…really love it…..how to download it and how much does it cost….

    thanks and greets

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Sandrina, glad you like it. Good news is the theme is free and can be downloaded here: http://wordpress.org/themes/wp-barrister – if you already have WP installed just go to Appearance > Themes > Add New and search for “barrister” and you can install it right from the admin panel.

    Hello, I want to leave a space between the banner with the logo of the site… is it possible? In summary, a space at the top of the page to integrate my pub.

    1. Avatar Kris says:

      Hi Eric,

      I think this involves modifying the template files and you said a space at the top of the page, so locate header.php under wp-barrister theme folder and integrate you pub in there.

  40. Avatar Eric says:

    Hello, I would not incorporate a pub, just so that the bottom is visible at the top of the page.
    Sorry for my english, I speak french.

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Salut Eric, I am sorry I do not understand your question. Could you please provide more details.

    I’m trying to find a way to avoid the sticky post being duplicated on the home page in the big red box and as a post below (just like the demo). Thanks!

    1. Avatar Kris says:

      Inside index.php in wp-barrister theme folder, before line 33(before the while loop), add this code,

      $args= array(‘post__not_in’ => get_option( ‘sticky_posts’ ));

      1. Avatar SIMON says:

        Thanks for your help.

        I Inserted the new code in between “” and “”, but it had no effect. Is this the right spot?

        1. Avatar Kris says:

          I tried the code and it works,

          Here is a screenshot for code snippet,

          1. Avatar SIMON says:

            I inserted the code in between lines 32 and 33 of the index.php file and this had no effect. I have 4 posts in total, one of which is sticky.

            Maybe I have a bad instal of wordpress or something

    Me again! I’m trying to edit the 404-page, but can’t find it. Shouldn’t there be a file ‘404.php’? My problem is: I have changed the “Theme Color Option” from standard red to green. But the 404-page still shows red. Any suggestions?

    1. Avatar Kris says:

      locate functions.php on the theme folder, then on line 451 add this .not-found .entry-header.. So it would goes like this,

        Yess! That did it. Thanks!

    I like very mutch your template!
    but I don’t know if is possible add a log-in in front end for my user, I’d like do it for people-profile-cpt it is possible?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Silvia, anything is possible of course, but it is non-trivial. I’d take a look at some of the membership plugins which might do what you need.

  45. Avatar Silvia says:

    Thanks you Charles. I’v find it ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now I have another problem…
    How can I activate and manage hom page slider?
    I’ve lost it! :-O

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Silvia, to be clear this theme can slide images in the background of the home page template, but doesn’t have a traditional slider. Assuming that is what you want you just need to add a regular WordPress image gallery to your home page content (containing the images you want to use) and the template will do the rest.

  46. Avatar Ralf says:

    really a great theme!

    But it seems customization is not so easy. I was trying to Change the page title size in the style.css but I couldn not find the right Position and failed.

    Can anyone help?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Ralf, try this how-to. I think you will find it makes it easy to id the parts of the style sheet that control different elements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zSUIm1KrPs

        Hi Charles,
        great! Through this tool I finally found the right Position in the css file.

      Hi Silvia, yes that would be useful. If you post a link or send them to us I’ll post them on the theme page for download and happy to give you credit of course.

    I have another little question for you,
    how can I modify the numper of people present in the people page?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Silvia, this is tied to the number of posts per page setting in the admin, under Settings > Reading.

  51. Avatar Mayke says:

    I want to create some featured page boxes below the content of my frontpage. If I choose for a ‘Your latest posts’ page, you will see these boxes. But I want a static page, and haven’t been able to create featured pages below the content with some plugins I have installed. I have another website (www.fiscalm.nl) and I want to have the layout in the same way. What should I do?

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Mayke, if you create a static page and assign the Alt_homepage template it will appear just like the home page of the demo site. To add the content blocks below the main headline and intro copy go to Appearance > Widgets and add the content to the Alt_homepage widget area.

    Hello there.
    Thank you for this fabulous and simple website.

    I have several enquiry that requires attention.

    Iโ€™m trying to find a way to avoid the sticky post being duplicated on the home page in the big red box and as a post below (just like the demo). Thanks!

    get_option( โ€˜sticky_postsโ€™ ));

    Can you please show a snap shot of where exactly the code goes. I would like to know the location by displaying whats before and after the given code.

    2. I have issues with the widget. How do I customise the widgets that I wish to have on my web. The flexibility is not seen.

    3. I would like you to recommend a plug in for my contact form. Thank you.

    4. The “people” page. How many people can we add ? Further to that how do I assure the hierarchy is met. I started with the President and end with committee members. The pict displayed is not according to the hierarchy. Besides that some of the profile are missing. Why ?

    Thank you for producing such an awesome template. My weblink http://www.mapec.org.my

    1. Charles Charles says:

      Hi Nalini, In answer to your questions:

      1. The demo site uses the Alt-homepage template for the home page. This template has static content as the intro and then uses widgets for the content below that. To use this template you must create a new static page (say “home”), and then select the Alt-homepage template for that page. To set your widgets go to Appearance > Widgets and add your choice of widgets to the home page widget section. For the demo we use this plugin for the home page widgets: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-image-widget/
      2. Go to Appearance > Widgets and you can control what widgets appear where. I also like to use Widget Logic to add further controls: https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-logic/
      3. I like to use Gravity Forms myself, but Contact Form 7 is also popular.
      4. You can add as many people as you like. The number of people displayed per page is controlled by the number of posts per page setting (Settings > Reading). The default is 10, but you can increase this. The hierarchy is alphabetical.

      Hope that helps.

    A wonderful theme!!!

    One question: How can I remove the Words “Category Archives” so that I see just e.g. “Allgemein” instead of “Category Archives: Allgemein” when choosing a category?

    1. Avatar Kris says:

      Inside wp-barrister theme folder, open category.php file then on line #9, change that line of code with this,

      printf( __( '%s', 'wp-barrister' ), '<span>' . single_cat_title( '', false ) . '</span>' );
