FAQ / General Questions

1. What is a WordPress Theme?

A WordPress theme (template) is a ready-to-use design for your WordPress powered website. While WordPress handles all the content on your website, the WordPress theme is the design itself, which is what your visitors view when they come to your website.

2. How do I install my InkThemes Theme?

It’s really quite simple. Just Upload the Theme & Activate. Your Theme is ready to go. You can try the methods outlined in video tutorial as well.

3. Do your themes work on WordPress.com websites?

Our WordPress themes only work on self-hosted WordPress installations, the content management system which you can download fromWordPress.org. If you have a WordPress.com hosted website, our themes will not work on your website.


1. How does the payment process work? When will I get my themes?

After you select a theme, you are taken to the PayPal for checkout screen where you complete your payment. After your payment has been completed, you will instantly see the Theme Download screen as well as the Theme is sent on your email too.

2. I’m having trouble processing the payment process. Who can help?

If you are having trouble with your payment processing, please contact PayPal directly via e-mail or phone through their website.


1. What advantage is there in buying the developer theme package with the PSD file?

The PSD files (The original design in Photoshop format) come in handy when you are wanting to make quite a few structural and design changes to a theme, it is usually the option selected by design agencies and freelancers who need to mock up an initial site design (jpg, gif, png or psd format) to present to clients. They then don’t need to get their hands dirty in PHP/HTML/CSS code before they actually have to and have the exact design brief in hand.

Lots of our themes depend not only on styling colors/typography in the CSS but also on background images. Using the PSD files allows for quick and easy tweaks to these background images. You can, of course, re-create these images if you know your way around Photoshop, but for the novices, this should push you in the right direction.


1. Do all the themes work with the latest version of WordPress?

Yes, it is our duty to always keep the themes up-to-date and working with the latest version of WordPress. Our themes are developed and fine-tuned for WordPress 3.1 or higher, any version prior to that may have problems with some theme functionality.

2. Can I change the language of the theme?

All of our themes are localized using GNU’s ‘gettext’ functionality. This means that each of our themes includes one file (.po) which contains all of the English terms we have used, which thus allows our users to only edit one file in able to translate our themes to any language in the world.

For more detail read our tutorial on translating themes.

3. Which browsers, browser versions, and operating systems do you test the themes on?

We test all our themes on Internet Explorer 7 and 8, the latest versions of Firefox, Safari. and Chrome. Regarding operating systems, our themes are independent of the operating system you use and will work as long as WordPress is installed correctly. We do not support Internet Explorer 6. If you use Internet Explorer 6, please consider upgrading to the latest Internet Explorer to have the best experience with our themes. Or switch to a different browser, the web will thank you.

4. Do I need to keep the InkThemes logo in the footer?

No! You can remove any credit link in the footer as described in our T&C.

5. How often are the themes updated?

We update our themes any time we discover a bug or there is a new feature that we feel should be added. We will inform you as soon we made some update in our themes.

6. Will the themes work with my plugins?

Yes, most plugins should work with our themes, HOWEVER, we can’t guarantee they will do so. There are some plugins that make use of Javascript libraries that may conflict with the libraries used in the themes, which will make our themes not function properly. There are thousands of plugins available and we can’t test everyone with our themes, unfortunately.
