  1. hi, I really like thema and it looks well done. Is it possible after installation to import a starting demo and then go and edit the contents?

    Thank you

    1. Hi,
      You may apply the style below at Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS:, .single-mphb_room_type .mphb-calendar-title, .single-mphb_room_type .mphb-calendar {
      display: none;

      1. Those words should be editable via WPML > String Translations. You may try to enable the option to ‘Look for strings while pages are rendered’. Then visit the single room type page on the front end, and go back to String Translation to check if the stings have been added. You may also contact our support team to get further assistance with this.

  2. I am having problems with changing the color of the slides and the footer and how to change the slides, it is possible to have some help in understanding how to move

    1. Hi Christian, Thanks for your questions. The slides are the child pages of your Home page. You need to edit the child pages of the Home page to edit tiles, featured images, and excerpts to change the information on the slides.
      At the moment, it is possible to change the colors by applying the custom CSS code.

        1. Hi Cristian, I’ve submitted a ticket for you. Please check your inbox and reply to my message if you have any additional questions

  3. Hello, please, how / where in the settings should i go to change the text such as “Welcome to Design Hotel” or “About Hotel” please ?

    1. Hi Ioannis,
      Thanks for your question. You may navigate to Accommodation > Settings and activate an option called Skip Search results. Then this form will redirect to the checkout page instead of the search results one.

  4. Hello,

    How can i change the text in home slide “Our Hotels & Resorts remain stylish, modern, forward thinking global leader”

    Thank you

    1. Hi Ioannis,
      Thanks for your question. That text is the information from the Excerpt filed of the Home’s child pages.

  5. Hi! Nice theme but I think there is some problem with elementor

    …wp-content/plugins/elementor/modules/dev-tools/deprecation.php :: 301] $ control_id is deprecated as of 3.5.0! [array (
    ‘trace’ => ‘
    # 0: Elementor\Core\Logger\Manager -> shutdown ()

    And when can you expect to upgrade to wordpress 6?

  6. Hi! Great theme.

    I like to use a horizontal menu instead of the drop-down. How do I remove the “menu” button? Thanks!

  7. I really like the Albatros theme.
    Is there the option for the Main Menu to be in horizontal line rather than in BurgerMenu (like the demo)?

    1. Hi,
      By default, there is no possibility to switch the menu from the burger menu to a horizontal one. You might need to customize the header of the theme by editing files to place a horizontal menu instead of the default one.
