Hi guys,

I just bought myself a club account, as i totally fell in love with the Game Crusade template. So now i dowloaded it and i'm trying to install. Nothing seems to work though, i've been trying to get this installed for like 3 hours now and it's not working. I can get it installed and see it in the theme section. But when i preview it, it's not working the way it should.

Here's a screenie of the preview:

Could anyone please guide me?

Also, the files i downloaded were not zipped, as it says in any tutorial online it usually is. I'm a total newbie at this, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance Smiley

Because of all the admin options for this theme, you need to go to the theme options in the admin (Appearance -> Shape5 Options) & either "reset" or "save" the settings.  That should apply the default measurements and make everything look normal.

Hi Tristan and thanks for your fast reply!

That did it! It was "save changes" that worked.

I've have never used wordpress before, but it seems like it pretty straightforward with this awesome template i got from you guys. I would like to add the gallery to my site. Am i right if i assume that it should be included in the template? If it is, then how do i activate it? Again, thanks in advance Smiley

If by "gallery" you are referring to the Image and Content Fader (Slideshow), then no, it's not built into the theme, but it has been released in the Wordpress repository for free, so if you go to your "Add Plugins" area and do a search for "S5 Fader" (or add it from here: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/s5-image-and-content-fader/ ), you should be able to add it with no trouble.
