    Hello thanks for providing great instructions and a nice theme. I am testing it but I have run into a problem. From the instructions it suggests that there should be a design file in the images and JS folder?

    I have downloaded the package several times but I can only find a CSS file in CSS or have I misunderstood?

    Thankful for any response or help.

  2. Luis Kerr says:

    Martin, images folder should have 12 items + a slides folder with 3 slide images. The js folder should have 3 files.

  3. Hi Luis,
    as always thank you for a very helpful tutorial. I have it up on my Office365 site now. However, I noted that on the blog page that the text outside of the blog posts (categories for example) have white letters which makes them very hard to see. I am not a web designer and have looked in the CSS files and cannot find the font settings for this area to change it. Can you tell me how to change the font color for those items?

  4. Luis Kerr says:

    Johnathan, the Blog code-behind is a mess, what a surprise. It seems like MS is using poorly skilled web designers for SP. They keep using tables and hard-code styles into their designs. Very difficult to deal with. Anyways, I just released few style updates for the theme. The only file changed is the Avicia.css. Download the latest package.

  5. Thanks Luis,
    I thought it was just me in that I could not make heads or tails out of the code behind. Thanks for the new CSS file it has helped me a lot. One last question the icons that are on the front page where did those come from? I like them and wanted to see what other choices may be available.

  6. Chuck says:

    Is it possible to do this on a SP2013 Foundation setup?

  7. Ronald says:

    I am having problems with this working on IE 9 and IE 8. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, IE10 have no issue. On IE 9 and IE 8 the page will not scroll and is not responsive. I figured it might be this way on IE 8 but not IE 9. Have followed your setup and was wanting to know if there is any thing I have missed. Also IE 8 is giving a JS Error in main.js at line 52. Thank you for the responsive design and I am more of a designer not a programmer. Help Please

  8. Torsten says:

    Very nice. Thank you. Is it possible to make the first JS links a little bit better understandable? Maybe after a beer? There is also an JS error in scroll_handler() binding. :-)TSC

    • Deric says:

      Hi, Thanks for the theme. I am using it as a base. However, I got the scroll_handler() binding error that Torsten did. Was there ever a fix for this?

  9. Brad Strong says:

    Thanks for a free theme, but when I load your Avicia theme, it is not the same as the one in the video. There is no image slider, no services or about page with nicely spaced divs, it’s like you just stripped that good stuff out and made it super-simple. Is the theme shown in the video still available anywhere?

  10. Luis Kerr says:

    Brad, please follow the documentation on how to customize the home page.

  11. Brad Strong says:

    Luis, I went through the instructions again and it worked! Obviously I missed something the first time. Thanks again.

  12. Brad Strong says:

    Hi again Luis, I am wondering if you’ve noticed or experienced that when you add subpages to any main menu page, they look good in Chrome, but in FF and IE, they do not stack vertically – instead they seem to have an “inline” behavior. Seems like some kind of list problem, but I’m a little new to ASP to tell what’s going on.

  13. Nicholas Ang says:

    Does this work with SharePoint 2013 on prem?

  14. Luis Kerr says:

    Nicholas, Avicia theme has been converted for SharePoint 2013 on prem as well. See the instructions here: https://topsharepoint.com/avicia-theme-for-sharepoint-2013

  15. Luis Kerr says:

    Brad, that is because SharePoint Online for public sites doesn’t support sub-sites: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/msonline/en-US/5836a05ae0c-423d-815c-76d6bfe25677/how-do-you-create-a-subsite-for-a-sharepoint-online-201public-site?forum=onlineservicessharepoint

    I believe you can use some CSS tricks to arrange the menu vertically but you are on your own. Let us know how it went.

  16. Luis Kerr says:

    Ronald, it looks like your IE9 and IE8 blocks access to javascripts. Lower your security settings on the browsers.

  17. Rosalyn says:

    This is very good. Easy instructions and a very nice result and unlike some other SharePoint templates – that have a hefty price tag – doesn’t look “SharePoint”. My one question is whether there is an easy setting to hide the Office 365 elements so they only see the website?

  18. Rosalyn says:

    To clarify, I mean the very top bar which says “Sign In”.

  19. Scott Simms says:

    Thanks for the theme. I am trying to use this on a private SharePoint Online site. The URL for my private site is:


    The code seems to assume a top level site so the relative references are resolving to:


    Is there a way to make this work with a non-top level private site?



    • swati jain says:

      Scott were you able to get a reply for getting this theme to work for non top level private site?

      • Michele says:

        Hi Swati, Hi Scott,
        Pls consider I am a zero when it comes to design and take no responsibility over this. I did founded a simple workaround to have the design working in the private site collections.
        As you did, I noticed that the page (master page?) references the catalog of public site. So I have uploaded all the design elements a second time, within the catalog of the public site.
        Basically repeat all the steps but this time within the O365 public site.

        Again, i don’t know if this could damage your SPO config in any way.

  20. Ahmed says:

    Thank you for this effort.
    -Is the content text and images static?
    How I can make it dynamic content from lists and picture library
    – if I add some web part dynamic it will affect on resizing or and responsive and how I adjust it .. thank you!

  21. Luis Kerr says:

    Rosalyn, there are easy ways to hide the ribbon. Joao has a tutorial on how to do it: http://support.bind.pt/entries/2400583How-can-I-hide-the-Office-36SharePoint-201suite-and-ribbon-bars-for-anonymous-users-

  22. Luis Kerr says:

    Ahmed, yes, the content on the homepage is static but with enough SharePoint experience can be modified to accommodate lists controlled by custom CSS which in turn can be responsive.

  23. Chrstine says:

    Hello Luis,
    Our columns are not right even after adding the Site Setting Step for the SP2013. Where can I find to customize the home page documentation?

  24. Luis Kerr says:

    Chrstine, make sure you have Avicia-Home as your homepage layout.

  25. Anette says:

    For some reason I am only able to see and edit the “Left Page Column” for the 2 column page layout. Maybe I am missing something or need to switch between the left/right somehow?

  26. Luis Kerr says:

    Anette, please read the docs properly: “Also, in order to use the Two Column page layout (Avicia-2Col.aspx) you need to create a new content type called 2ndPageContent.
    So, first, head over to Site Settings and create a new column by clicking the link “Site columns” under “Web Designer Galleries” and click Create.
    Use 2ndPageContent for the Column name, use the existing group “Page Layout Column” and hit OK.”

  27. rui fonseca says:

    I don’t know how to change pictures in the website. i ‘ve uploaded them but i can’t alter them in the template

  28. Luis Kerr says:

    rui, try the HTML source option.

  29. rui fonseca says:

    is it possible to add more images to the banner? how do i do it

  30. Luis Kerr says:

    rui, change the slider images on Avicia-Home.aspx

  31. Saule says:

    I guess it will should not work for SPF – Sorry something went wrong. I did uploaded using SP designer, made the 2013 Avicia.master default. I think SPF does not allow to publish, I dont see this option.

  32. Sean says:

    This is great. Where are all of the icons in the demo? And how do you put content into the blue and lower light grey areas? I only see a hard-code content are in the Home page layout and not ability to add web parts or extra content areas.

  33. jimnet says:

    The Avicia-Home.aspx contains three editable sections, but I’m currently seeing one of them while editing the page. The other sections called “Extra Content 1” and “Extra Content 2” are hidden or not recognized by the designer. The fields for these regions are: SBWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2. Do I need to add this fields to the “Article Page” content type to make them work?

    • Andrew says:

      Yes, Once you have created the SBWPageContent1 and 2 Columns under “Page Layout Columns” then you need to go to the Site Content Settings page and edit the Article Page Content Type to include both Columns.

  34. Luis Kerr says:

    jimnet, you have to create two Content Types called: SBWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2
    For some reasons the Content Types setting page is now blocked on O365. Maybe is just my site: Try it out: http://yoursite/_layouts/15/mngctype.aspx

  35. Luis Kerr says:

    Sean, the icons are actually a CSS Sprite and derives from /images/combined.png. See the CSS at the bottom. As per “content into the blue and lower light grey areas” see the answer for “jimnet” above.

  36. jimnet says:

    Thanks Luis, If these were content types: SBWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2. Which are the fields I should create for each? I think that they are columns instead. Am I wrong?

  37. Luis Kerr says:

    This explains how to create custom content types: https://topsharepoint.com/avicia-theme-for-sharepoint-2013

  38. jimnet says:

    OK they worked the same way as the 2ndPageContent. Actually SBWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2 are site columns, and you have to add them to the Site content tipe called “Article Page” Thanks!

  39. Lmilliken says:

    I get this message after following all instructions. Could not load the assembly ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’. Make sure that it is compiled before accessing the page.

  40. GlenncC says:

    I’m trying to install this on a new instance of SP2013, and I don’t have Content types of “ASP Net Master Page” or “Page Layout”. I’m a Sharepoint newbie, so I’m sure I’m just missing something. Can you help me out?

  41. Man says:

    Thank you Luis for providing the great themes! When I insert a search box (snippet from ShareBoot theme), I don’t know why I the text I typed in the search text box does not display yet clicking on the search button, it still search and show the search text on the result page? Again, many thanks!

  42. Jason says:

    Hi, New to Office365 and barely had a taster session with sharepoint 2010 so coming at this as a complete newbie. Trying to use this theme and have run into a few problems. Mostly through my own incompetence so please excuse any questions that may sound ridiculous. When setting the master page to the new default I find the title of my page changes from Cass & Nova to Avicia and I cant seem to change it back to what it should be. Also every time I load the page I am getting the “only secure content is displayed” at the bottom of the screen, I am not to clued up on the HTML parts too, I would like to add the contact form but copy and paste sends it mental and I cant move the boxes into any position to suit. Last thing for now is the Site Columns bit for 2ndPageContent, I don’t seem to have that option under Web Designer Galleries. Really like the look of it all otherwise and can see it will look great once its personal to us. Would like to get these bits done before putting it online and then figure out the rest as I go. Any advice you can give yould be great thanks.

  43. Luis Kerr says:

    Jason, change the title in the site setting: Site Settings >> Title, Description, and Logo.
    Contact form provided in the package is just HTML. You might have to put more effort to create a working form using .NET or something else. As per “Site columns” option under “Web Designer Galleries”, it appears MS removed it. Not sure if it is temporary, I hope not. Good luck!

  44. Jason says:

    Thanks for the quick reply, The Title and Description are all as they should be but the site still has Avicia where my Title should be. I will have a play about with the form then. I have found Site Columns in Libraries I think, stumbled across it, but when creating a new column I had no option to change it to Publishing HTML so figured I was in the wrong place. Could it be that Office 365 uses a cut down version of SharePoint? I can upgrade a 2010 licence and download the full version if necessary. I need to learn it from the ground up anyway so will probably back with plenty more daft questions. Thanks again.

  45. Jason says:

    Looking at the title it looks like Logo.png is in the way? Is there an easy way for me to edit the template so I can shift it?

  46. Luis Kerr says:

    Jason, SharePoint Online (Office365) is a cut down version of SharePoint 2013. If you plan to upgrade I would recommend SharePoint 2013 instead of 2010. To change the Logo.png edit the Avicia.master or just call your logo Logo.png and replace it.

  47. Jason says:

    Thanks Luis, It seems the Small business version comes with foundation and is missing several options that would help me get where I want to be. O365 Enterprise however seems to have the greater capability so I am looking into changing up to that for now and getting the full SP2013 in the near future.

    I have changed the logo and tried a few things with the Avicia.master but the problem is, the logo is right where the title should be and is always on top. I would settle for not having the logo for now but cant figure out how to remove it. I like the look of the Avicia theme and would like to customise it to suit the colours and things we are after but getting stuck on the logo (and also on the favicon) and a few other bits have made me look for other themes. The Avicia theme has opened my eyes on what can be done some more though so while I will now find something else I have learned allot through this theme which I guess is the intention so good job. :o)

  48. Luis Kerr says:

    Jason, I use O365 version of SP and I don’t have all the features I used to have just a month ago. MS removed them for some reasons. I will still recommend SP2013 on prem, if you can afford it. As per the logo, have you tried to hide it using the CSS? Avicia.css on Line 384. header h1.logo {display:none;}.
    To replace the favicon.ico you have 2 choices: replace the favicon.ico with yours or change the referral link in the header on the Avicia.master (link rel=”shortcut icon” href=”/_catalogs/masterpage/Avicia/images/favicon.ico”)
    That’s the main purpose of these SharePoint themes, to open your eyes on what you can do and how to do it. “… teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime.” Thanks.

  49. Jason says:

    Thanks again Luis,
    I was looking at Bindtuning and the read me suggests that O365 needs the enterprise version in order to get to settings needed. O365 small business premium is missing the links so I gues MS have cut down the basic versions? I have had a support request answered that I am reading now and they have suggested SP plan 2 as an option so I am looking into it. I hadn’t tried the CSS route for the logo yet but will look into it tonight but I had tried the favicon but it seemed no matter what I did the icon never changed.. Again, many thanks for the advice and the fishing rod, I am looking forward to progressing on from here and knowing a bit more than I did. :o)

  50. Jason says:

    Got allot further today and found there were a couple of unpublished pages I had missed. So the changes I was making were not showing because I hadn’t published the pages that affect them. (school boy error I guess). I have just made the website online and its still using your theme so thanks again. Any hints and tips are appreciated. :o) I am still planning on looking into the Enterprise version of O365 and also a full version of SharePoint 2013 so should have more options in time. Onwards and upwards.

  51. Rothrock says:

    Love this. Thank you it is helping me so much. I’m seeing two javascript errors from main.js. The two functions scroll_handler and hash_handler don’t seem to be defined. I just commented them out and that seems to have fixed that problem, but I’m not sure what that might break….

  52. Peter says:

    Thanks for the work.
    I am on O365 for business and trying to change the standard “blog” look and feel.
    I created folders, but I miss in my view the “Content Type” dropdown. I see content types on the mngctype.aspx page, but the types like design.. aren’t there. Any idea why the Content Type dropdown doesn’t appear at all when uploading documents?

  53. Stephanie says:

    Love the design and how it works. Just a quick question – when I have the theme enabled, any changes I make to the page code (such as adding a hyperlink to an image) through the “Edit Source” mode doesn’t stick… When I save the page the changes to the code disappear. Any thoughts? Thanks!

  54. Phil says:

    Hi I’ve managed to install everything as the instructions show. That works, but I’m having problems with the images and editing.

  55. Raf says:

    Hi, I’m missing a content type. Trying to choose the ASP NET Master Page, but its not in my dropdownlist ….make sure you select “ASP NET Master Page” for the Content Type… How can this content type be added to sharepoint?

  56. Rick M says:

    This is a great skin. I have learned a lot while using it on my new Office 365 site. I am having one issue I was hoping you could help with: In IE I get the “Only secure content is displayed” message when logged in. This is because we only use the non-SSL version in general and it’s not an issue, but when folks log in to upload photos, documents, post to the blog, etc, Office 365 forces SSL. It seems there are a ton of references in the skin to http:// items that is causing this. Do you have an updated version that is more SSL friendly, or know of a way to stop forcing the SSL?


  57. Luis Kerr says:

    Rick, try to use relative path to reference the files. (/) not absolut path “http://YourSite/css/main.css”. Just “/css/main.css”

  58. Wayne says:

    Hi Luis, I’ve tried adding this theme several times to our company site. I admit that I am not a developer, just an enthusiasts, however, I’ve been racking my brain on it. Nothing is working. Our Office 365 site is internal facing, is that the problem?

  59. Wendy L. says:

    I uploaded your Avica theme, but did not have the content types (design file, ASP Master file) available. I am using SharePoint online, but wondering if we just have something setup differently?

  60. Hi, can any body help me telling me how to change the image of the flexslider?

  61. Brett says:

    Damn that’s a sexy site. Nice work & thank you!

  62. Luis says:

    Hello. Thanks for this template.
    How can i edit the font colour of the menu?

  63. Luis says:

    @Juan Carrasco You can find the flexslider images inside the images/slides folder.

  64. Larry says:

    This doesn’t work in Office 365 E4 plan. Tried for 3 days straight now and this simply doesn’t work. Maybee if you have another plan , wish people would really understand that there are multiple e SharePoint plans in Office 365

  65. Luis Kerr says:

    Larry, this theme is for SharePoint Online Public sites. It will not work on Team Sites. Your Office 365 Enterprise E4 should have SharePoint Online included.

    On the blue ribbon, if you click on Sites you should have at least two options: Public Site and Team Site. Make sure you create the Public Site and Make Website Online.

  66. Lachlan says:

    HI Mate,

    I have a SharePoint 365 site, and I’m trying to add the page layout. I’ve followed your instructions to the letter, but I can’t view any of the pages under page layout. Heck, I can’t even create a folder in the first step you mentioned. Apart from throwing SharePoint into the bin where it belongs, is there anything else I can do.

    • Luis Kerr says:

      Try using the “SharePoint Designer 2013” to add folders. It looks like you might not have enough rights to create folders. There are other methods but unfortunately you might have to do the research. When it comes to installing new themes MS likes to challenge us.

  67. Ken says:

    How do i get the footer to appear and then stay at the bottom of the window? If not enough content is present, the footer just hovers with white space at the bottom. I want it to be at the bottom of the display window when that happens, and have the white space above the footer. Footer needs to always be the end of the displayed page

    • Luis Kerr says:

      Ken, there are tons of options for “Sticky Footer”, just do a search. Here is the best I found: http://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/sticky-footer
      Or try to force the footer to be sticky by altering the footer CSS:
      “position: absolute; bottom: 0;”

      • Ken says:

        I will give that a try but I was never able to get a good result with other ones I saw online.

        • Ken says:

          After much trial and error, I am still unable to get this working properly. If it looks like it works, then something breaks with the scrolling and background elements not lining up anymore, if i move things around, it works on some pages but not others. It’s rather annoying. Are you able to show an example of this working on your template? I have this as my code right now:

          min-height: 100%;
          /* equal to footer height */
          margin-bottom: -142px;
          #main:after {
          content: “”;
          display: block;
          #footer, #main:after {
          /* .push must be the same height as footer */
          height: 142px;

  68. Ahmed says:

    Thanks for sharing the theme.. I have followed your instructions up to this point

    “To assign Avicia page layouts edit the page and from the “Page Layout” option under Page tab select the necessary page layout.”

    I don’t seems to have the Page Layout option in the edit page ribbon bar, is that something I need to Activate?

  69. Al Duduk says:

    I’m having the same issue as Ahmed, can’t change the page layout on the home page. Gives me an error saying that either I don’t have enough rights or I may need to select an object on the page to activate the menu. I think that Microsoft may have made more changes that are making this theme unusable for the public facing site. Had to use Designer for folder creation also.

  70. Christophe V. says:

    Hi guys,
    I had the same problem with the page layouts, and I solved it like this :
    – Check in the properties of the layout aspx pages that you chose “Page Layout” content type and not “HTML Page Layout”
    – Check that you have published the layout pages
    Hope to have help you.
    And of course thanks a lot Luis, nice job. You deserve your beer 🙂

  71. EduCa says:

    Hello Luis is a great job you’ve done, I congratulate you for this contribution. I have problems with Two Column page layout. When I create the column, which is “The type of information in this column is”

  72. Suheil says:

    Avicia Worked perfectly on both google chrome and Firefox but its not working properly on IE whats wrong with it

  73. Ángel says:

    Hello! Im trying to use 3 columns layout using class “one-third column” on 3 diferents divs, but it only shows the first 2 columns. Is there a way to achieve this? My current code is:

    Thanks in advance!

  74. Sean says:

    Hi there,

    Can someone please help? I have been at it for an hour or so customizing some of the stuff and getting it to work. And when I was around halfway there, I previewed on FF and I.E. and it seems like something is not working right. The slidershow overlaps the text and the there is no drop shaddow and arrows on either side. Also the responsive seems gone. In Chrome is still looks beautiful, though.

  75. Heather says:

    Is there a way to slow down the slider a bit? I tried modifying the flexslider.js file and all the associated duration values near the bottom, but it doesn’t seem to slow down the slideshow. I need it to stay on each slide for a bit longer. Thanks!

    • Heather says:

      Nevermind, I found it in the main.js file. However, I’m having an issue with the list items. They’re showing up as some type of weird resizeable box rather than an actual list even though the HTML source code looks fine. They’re showing up 3 of them on a single horizontal line and then it goes to the next line with three more rather than one below the other. Any ideas?

  76. agordon says:

    Each time I try to set the page layout options for the page layouts it says a list is missing or deleted. I do have all publishing features enabled and have added 3 site columns to the Article Page Content Type: SBWPageContent1, SBWPageContent2, and 2ndPageContent

    But this is the error I get when I select “Page Layout” after upload:
    The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

  77. WDCONline says:

    Is this only for Office365 or can this be used with SharePoint 2010 on premise?

    This is awesome. Is there any way to make these work for INTERNAL publishing sites? Like for an intranet site as opposed to Public?

  82. Adrien says:

    Does it works on Publishing sites ?

    (i mean not on public site )


  83. Kali says:

    Hello Luis,
    Does this work on Site collection or it have to be top level.
    My company have abc.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename

    I used it there and it does not work. Does it have to be under abc.sharepoint.com or it should work under /sites/sitename

  84. Mark says:

    This is a great post and teaches me a lot as a newb to SharePoint Branding. I am currently using SharePoint Online subscription through O365, and when I go to my SharePoint Site Collection to create a public site, that feature is no longer available since Microsoft discontinued it, I have to create a Private Site Collection. Any suggestion on which type of site I should create? I tried a Publishing Portal and went through each step exactly as posted, but when I am finished it looks nothing like it should. Thank you for the help!

    • Luis Kerr says:

      Mark, Microsoft dropped the Public Website feature from SharePoint Online as of January 2015. Customers who currently use the SharePoint Online Public Website feature will continue to have access to the feature for a minimum of two years. So, don’t waste your time branding SharePoint Online. MS will pull the plug any day.

      • Mark says:

        Luis, Thank you for the feedback! That is unfortunate to hear, these templates are a great start and would have loved to use them. Do you know of any other templates that can be used for my SharePoint online sites and or Publishing site. Thanks again!

    Bit of an odd one, I got the site all installed and everything working great but noticed I was missing the two editable sections on the home page. Reading the comments above I created two site columns SBWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2 with a content type of HTML Publishing. I then added these to the Site Content type of “Article Page”. As soon as I did that the home page crashed out with a Correlation ID error. Removing the content types from the system doesn’t fix the error so instead I edited the HTML file directly and changed BWPageContent1 and SBWPageContent2 to BWPageContent3 and SBWPageContent4 and the site loaded again. So the issue is around the content type but I can’t work out what/where. Any pointers on where to start looking would be great.

    Just can’t get any of this to work. All I get is what looks like missing image links

    Do you have or can this be used for Private Site Collection?

    I’m trying to insert a visio services web part into a page (using Avicia main page layout) but instead of a visio drawing preview, it appears the following message:
    “The control collection cannot be modified during DataBind, Init, Load, PreRender or Unload phases. ”
    Googling this message (http://merkesdal.blogspot.it/2013/11/sharepoint-201visio-web-access-problem.html) it seems to be due to a wrong position of the SPWebPartManager component (into the head section instead of the body section).

    After I moved the component as suggested the page can’t be displayed getting a “file not found” error, also if I use the blank web part layout instead of avicia main page layout.
    Any suggestion on how to change the master page in a right way?

    Has there been any progress on getting these wonderful themes to work with Private Sites?

  90. In the directions, it states: On the “Site Settings” page click on “Master page” link under “Look and Feel”.

    Master page is no longer an option under “Look and Feel”.

    I’ve installed and published the Avicia files to my SharePoint site and set Site Master to Avicia /Avicia, as described in this article. However, when I edit a page on a subsite (or even the main site) I do not see the “Page Layout” option.

    Do I need to install the Avicia files from the SP3013 folder instead. The ribbon on my SharePoint site reads, left to right, apps (icon), Office 365, SharePoint.

    Hi Luis,
    Great Article. This does not seem to work with a “Private Site collection” in O365/SP online. I can see the page layout, etc but once i select it all i see is a X mark and nothing shows where the JS and other image file supposed to load. Any thoughts?

    I get this message after following error. Could not load the assembly ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’. Make sure that it is compiled before accessing the page.

    I want to use the template for an organizational intranet, so not a public facing page. How would I go about installing it for that purpose.

    Hi Luis, excellent work! I have 6 top nav elements (7 including the home link), and so I’d like to be able to make the header a little wider. Where in the .css can I do so?

    This is amazing. You are awesome.

    Can we use custom built web parts with this theme?


  98. Paul says:

    Using this theme, when I add a search box web part to a page and choose default search box, it does not change to the full length box. Do you know why this is and where I can make a change so I can use the full length box?
