      Hi Ashley,
      Just checked your site and it looks awesome. 🙂 I installed the theme and actually I also could not find that specific option. I have contacted the theme author about this and let’s see what they have to say about this. If they reply, I will pass it to you.

      However, I would say you can try this. I see you have used the Jetpack wordpress plugin. Please activate the ‘Custom CSS’ module. You can then go to Appearance->Edit CSS. Try the following CSS and save the changes.
      img.grayscale { filter: none; }
      Hope this helps.

      Hi,
      While using a free WordPress theme, yes you should be careful about where you are getting the theme from. However, I always pick themes are completely spam free. All these themes are mostly from wordpress.org repo and well renowned authors in WordPress market. WordPress.org themes are well checked by reviewers and have to pass theme review standards.
      In short, yes all these above themes are 100% safe to use and spam free. These themes are free premium quality themes and if these themes fit your need then why go for a pro. 🙂

    I want to know the slider plugin for WordPress post like to show text along with image. Actually I have a cricket blog . I used to update posts in Top 5 , Top 10 this kind of posts format but i don’t know how to separate the post in slide format like to view by clicking next in single post rather i used to post the complete article as full post. It would be grateful if someone suggest the right plugin to fulfill my query.

      Hi Mazhar,
      Yes, you can try the eStore theme for the above list. It perfectly supports Urdu font as theme has RTL(Right to Left) support. 🙂
      Thanks.

    Thank you for the great post! I dowloaded the black and white theme but the slider doesn’t work on the homepage – in fact it’s not downloaded at all!! So frustrating as it’s such a lovely theme

      Hi Rianna,

      The Modernthemes (this theme’s author) provide XML demo content withing the theme folder. You could try installing the demo content. Once you add the demo content, perhaps it will be easier to know how to setup the slider. I would redirect you to the theme author support but looks like they don’t provide free support for their themes.
      Hope this helps.

      Hi there,

      When you download and install the theme. It actually shows no content (if your WordPress install is a fresh one) or the content that you have in your current WordPress install. The theme does not come with demo data by default. By reading the instruction provided by the Theme authors, you can make the site just like demo above.

      For example: If you are using the ColorMag theme then you can find the instruction here http://themegrill.com/theme-instruction/colormag/.

      Hope this information helps. 🙂

    Hi Sanjip !

    Could help me….I am trying to identify a good free responsive theme for my blog NewsTikka.com maybe you could help…
    I am seeing some challenges in the current themes i have used like
    1) Users are unable to comment on the site unless they post face book comments
    2) When I try to use the Facebook logo to post the blogs on FB, another wrong image (from my media gallery itself) gets tagged with the write-up….

    regards/Cool Chilli

      Hi,

      ColorMag from above list might be a good match for your site.
      Here are the answer to your queries.
      1. You can try changing the comment settings in Settings->Discussion in dashboard.
      2. May be you can give a try to this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-facebook-open-graph-protocol/.

      Also, ThemeGrill provide free support for free themes as well. You can select ColorMag and if you have any technical queries you can put them here themegrill.com/support-forum.

      Thanks.

      Hi there,
      Both free and pro version of the ColorMag only support the primary menu in the header. Currently, there is no another menu for header part. Hope this clears your confusion.
      Thanks.

      ColorMag would be an awesome choice for your blog. The ColorMag theme can show a lot of news of different category right from the home page in a beautiful, clean and organized manner. Give it a try, I am sure you will love it.

    Hi.. I would like to know whether these themes are really free… like really free..
    Like the theme Envince thats number 2 on your list offers 2 download buttons one is demo and the other is paid version of the same for 69 bucks. I am just starting out so all these things are really new to me I would simply like to know whether I can use free version of the theme Envince or any other theme for that matter, for monetisation.
    Kindly reply
    ThankYou

      Hi Arpit,
      I wonder how you missed ‘Download Free Version‘ button right above ‘Buy Pro Version $69 ‘. And right there next to these two buttons, you can see the other two buttons which are demos for each free and pro version.
      Therefore, Envince theme is available there completely for free as well as paid version. Below in the features section, we have clearly mention what features are only available in pro version so there must be everything clear.
      Please have a look. If you need any more assistance, contact our customer support team.
      Thanks and good luck Arpit. 🙂
