Customizr v3.5.7 and v3.5.8 release note 12

Dear Customizr theme users,

This new release fixes minor issues reported on the theme forum ( see the changelog at the bottom), and reinforce the theme compliancy with the latests theme guidelines on

The main visible change is the default slider on home becoming the posts slider. This will only impact users who were using the demo slider on their home page.

Version 3.5.7 and v3.5.8 are safe for child theme users.


New call for translators

I was surprised by the number of emails received following the last call for translators. This has been a real success !

Congratulations to all the contributors from all over the world who have been involved in this first pass and received their free copy of Customizr Pro.

How to contribute ?

The process to become a contributor is very simple :

  1. First you need to get in touch with me and send me your username.
  2. Then I will publish a request to the team of your native language on, in order to add you as Editor for the theme ( see examples of editor requests here ).  This is why I need your WordPress username.
  3. As soon as you will become editor, you will be able to add, modify and approve the translations online.  You can also download and upload translation .po files  on each project page ( at the bottom ) if it is easier for you.
  4. When you’ll have completed at least 95% of the translation, let me know and I would be glad to send you the Customizr Pro theme.

Note : Each language team on has specific rules and wording requirements. This is important because it ensures that the translations of a given language are consistent accross all plugins and themes on Make sure that you follow the wordpress guidelines of your native language when translating.

If you have already contributed to the translation and did not request your Customizr Pro version yet, please drop me a line here !

Current translation status

A lot of new languages have been completed recently, but there are still many remaining opportunities if you want to contribute. The following is a screenshot of the current translation status of the Customizr theme.

If you are a native speaker of one of the languages that is below 95% of completion, you can contribute !

    i like the them a lot, but since I moved the website in a subcategory leaving unchanged the url in the primary root, I can’t save live customization anymore.

    This is the message i get from wordpress:
    “You try to be clever, huh?
    You are not authorized to change the look of this site”
    any idea on how to fix it?

    Hi Nicolas
    Just to say a big thanks for such a good theme. I have been using it for over a year now on my first wordpress site which I use with a child theme. Customizr must be one of the best documented sites out there to allow you to customise it. This customisation was important to me as I wanted to keep the look of the old site. Your theme has also worked consistently well with all the plugins i wanted.
    I noticed the misalignment of the menu after the last but one update. You had fixed it before i even had chance to look at it properly. Very well supported.

    I love the theme, but when I tried to complete the auto-update of my Customizer theme this morning, it took down my website completely: The error it threw was “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.” This is the message on every page, public and admin, and didn’t happen until I updated the theme. Help!

      I lost my site as well during the recent update. I found that it wiped out all of my custom sliders and colors on the site. I tried to restore from a backup and it seems like I have crashed the site even further. Maybe because the back up did not match the updated word press version

        OK… I was able to go further back in the restore and it seems like I am able to get back before the recent update. However, for some reason I am getting the default green theme instead of my customized colors. The sliders and all the customization have all been wiped out.

    I love your theme. Customizr is awesome, even for a french newbie!
    Just a quick message about the update.
    A slight offset has appeared in the horizontal menu since the theme update.
    My first menu item is a custom link. Now it’s centered at the middle of the block (height) and not aligned at the bottom like the others… It seems missing the margin-top: .25em;

    Thank you a lot for all your wonderful job.
