great plugin!

Is there a plan down the line to add the option to change fonts for titles and body in the admin?

This would be really helpful!

Please let me know!



Hi Bill,

Thanks for the kind words!

There isn’t at this time, but I’ll add it to my list of feature requests.

Thank you for this – I believe this will be really helpful and will make the admin more unique when you are able to add custom fonts.

Also may I ask something else – I don’t seem to find in custom settings the option to change the color for the body { background: #f1f1f1; } to a custom color..

Is there a way to change this?

Thank you for your help in advance,



Hi Sevenbold,

When will the new update come?

“Hi Onlyonemj,

I will soon update Slate Pro with patches for the items you mentioned above.

These problems are due to updates of WP 4.8. Regarding “do not publish as advertised”, note that Slate Pro has not yet been updated for WordPress 4.8, which is stated both in the details of the plugin software version and in the notes version at the bottom of the page. . Certainly not trying to fool someone with compatibility information, just been a bit slow to update. “

How do I deactivate the key as I moved from one hosting provider to another. When I reenter the key, the message is to deactivate key before using it. The key is not being used elsewhere. Thank you.

Hi aang777,

Sorry for the delay. If you’re still having an issue, let me know and I’ll deactivate your key so it can be used again.

There’s a bug on the Admin Menu Settings. Check box options are duplicating. I can send you screen print and additional info; let me know. Thanks!

any luck?

hi there, anything i can do to expedite this? I’m unable to configure some of my plugins because of this issue in which the top horizontal bar covers up certain buttons and links. I don’t want to disable your plugin to temporarily get access because I’ve read that i could lose my custom styling settings. thanks

Hey bradmaclean,

Can you send me a message from my profile page here so I can get your email? I have a couple files to send you to test out.

I tried to update my theme in wordpress and it says I need the license Key,.. however I already added this when I uploaded slate pro and when i now re enter it says this code was already activated? What do i do… I only use Slate pro on this website no other….. Best Anna M

I deactivated the theme and re activated it again to try and prompt the key to be accepted

Hi annaclairemorton, please try activating again. I’ve reset your key.

thank you that worked

Is there a way to use this plugin on multiple different sites? I want to use it to create consistent admin page designs for all of the websites I manage without having to start from scratch each time. I’d be willing to pay more for this feature if possible.

Hi webgrowthpros,

Slate is multisite compatible. So if you create your sites as part of a multisite, they can all look the same based on your settings in the main parent site.

Alternatively, you can export/import your settings into individual sites, though in that case each site would need its own license.

Hi there,

I just purchased your slate pro theme, really love your work. but would you please help me make the logo above left menu fixed on the top? your help will be highly appreciated.

best regards Wayne

Hi Wayne,

The whole top menu and side menu should both stay fixed while using the WordPress admin at desktop sizes, which should mean the logo stays at the top-left at all times. Is something else happening?

hi, there,

please take a look at the screenshot at

the LOGO just scroll together with the content! please let me know how to make it fixed. i tested on edge and safari browser on desktop, same issue.

This is default behavior in the WordPress admin when the left hand admin menu is taller than the browser window. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to see the rest of the menu items.

Slate doesn’t set the logo to a fixed position, it gets scrolled with the rest of the menu.

I can look into adding this as a feature in a future update.

hi.. i have one request, would you please reset my activation. so that i can use on my new site with same domain name. plz reset…thanks

It’s been reset.

hi there,

there’s a problem with visual composer 5.4.5, the fixed VC header is covered by the admin bar. please fix it. For VC 5.4.4, there’s fine.

is there any news about this issue?

Hi iwayne1688,

No, unfortunately I don’t own Visual Composer and can’t test it. Generally I can’t guarantee other plugin compatibility with Slate since it changes so many things in the admin.

If you have to have Visual Composer support, I’d be happy to issue you a refund.

Hi, how do I deactivate my license? I activated it and then did not end up using it. I’d like to use it now though. Can you help?

On the site it was activated, you can go to the licensing page and click Deactivate. If you’re not able to do that for some reason (like not having access to the site), let me know.

Hi, How can i make the login page css/js/img just like this other admin theme demo login page? i just bought your plugin and love it, but the login page is too dull…can you help me extract the custom css from this other plugin and apply to your plugin? thanks a lot!

Could I pay you for this separately?

No sorry, but there’s lots of freelancers out there who can write some CSS for WordPress.

Ok, thanks


Just bought it and its working very nicely. Good design!

Can we change the admin bar ICONS in the list (such as pages/posts/settings/etc)? If not, could you build that in soon?

Oh, and you will be updating your plugin for wordpress 5.0 when it will be released yes?


Is there any directions you could give for us to change the icons in code somewhere?

Hi Quillo,

There’s lots of blog post and tutorials online that talk about changing the admin icons.

Offering advice on how to change the admin outside of the interface that Slate provides isn’t something I can do.

Ok, thanks

Hi, I am getting error “Oops, the import didn’t work.” with this import from one site to another. Could you try on your system, and help so it can work? Thanks

My export data is


Thanks for your response and suggestion. Unfortunately, no, that does not work either.

I thought maybe the HTML was interfering with the code of import, so I removed the HTML from dashboard widget, updated paste is below… this also DOES NOT WORK. So somewhere within that code export, there is something that the IMPORTER does not like.

Can you please find the issue and provide a solution?

Thanks very much.

Hi Quillo,

Can you send me a direct message on my profile page here, so I can get your email? I think I have a fix but I’d like to send you the updated plugin for testing.

Sure, just sent you an email now. Thank you

Love the template, but I’ve got 3 suggestions:

1. Slate Pro doesn’t play well with Yoast Seo (the layouts). Since most of us use Yoast, could you please have a look a possible fix.

2. Would you add a text-box for custom css in the settings somewhere?

Optionally: When applying a custom color scheme, I’d like to be able to select an existing one as a base (e.g. the light scheme) and just change a few colors. (recreating one is a lot of work.
