Newbie in using WordPress

To be honest I am not an expert digital developer. The them was chosen by our team according to the feel and style of it. Having lost team members and needing to keep going.
I found myself fiddling with our blog, which uses the Bucket them for Wordpress. It is somewhat intimidating even easy to use.
I had an issue with our logo and the URL redirection. I looked through the “editor” and the header.php. I could seriously find nothing concerning the URL or even the logo for that matter in the code. I started searching the theme, looking on the web to find answers and started turning around.
Finally decided to reach out to the Pixelgrade support team (should have done this earlier). Very rapidly Andrei replied. I am mentioning the name, since he was the person involved and deserves the acknowledgement. Andrei right off sent the proper information and with supporting video concerning the child theme, etc. and what needed to be done.
Since we already had a custom child theme. We could not proceed the same way. Andrei, right away offered to do it for us. We gave remote access to Andrei and within 5 minutes or so, all was done and working.
Pixelgrade and Andrei your support was very much appreciated, and I shall not be afraid to contact Pixelgrade for future support.

You have my vote for Great job! 🙂

I got my theme Bucket and I think that’s the perfect one for bloggers since it’s already included the reviews feature. I love that feature the most, plus the flexibility and simplicity to use and set up the theme. Not to mention their incredible support and helpful team!

Bugs and issues

Theme is great, I have been using it for a long time. But recently I was trying to install Advanced Custom Field plugin and boom…, theme broke down if you disable built int ACF plugin and install the same plugin manually. I am pretty sure this bug was not present when I bought because I did disabled built in ACF and it was working fine. Last week I tried to install ACF manually and theme started to break down. I think the bug was introduced in some updates. I reported the issue to pixelgrade but unfortunately my support is expired so they refused to fix it.

Anyone buying this theme be careful and if anyone reading this has bought this plugin and has support left then please drop and email to pixelgrade to fix it.

Thanks for your review. I’m happy to hear that you like our Bucket theme. However, because we already introduced built in support for ACF, if you try to use the plugin separately and it’s not working, it’s not a bug.

However, I hope you enjoy the theme and you get the most out of it with your website.

Stay awesome,

I purchased the Bucket theme from Pixelgrade back in May and I’ve never looked back since. I love the design and how simple it is to change. I was able to adapt it perfectly to my needs and now my pop culture online magazine looks amazing. Without Pixelgrade none of this would have been possible. The support is fantastic too. If I ever need any advice or a line of code to change a specific element of the CSS they’re always there to help. Brilliant theme, and wonderful people. Keep it up!

I love Pixelgrade. When I was buying a template I was choosing between dozens of themes that interested me for my news site, but Pixelgrade’s Bucket theme seemed like it combined stylishness, great customer service, and ease of use for a great price.

I am in many ways caveman-level when it comes to using computers, so the fact that Bucket is so intuitive is a great help. Pixelgrade’s excellent customer service has also repeatedly come through for me. I’m always impressed that they answer so quickly, usually within a day. Based on my experience with the Bucket theme, I’d recommend Pixelgrade to anyone. My template’s been easy to use and the few problems I’ve encountered Pixelgrade helped me to resolve.

This product is fantastic, easy to use and looks incredibly professional. For me, I just want to add in my designs, content, and photography – and this product does all the hard work for you. I wouldn’t change a thing about the product and the team is fantastic.

Sean Ongley, Blogger from the USA

Not only is this a great theme, well-designed, flexible, and continuously updated, but the company is extraordinarily responsive. They have provided amazing support. I actually get the sense that my problems will make it into future updates of the theme. Very good investment.

We set up the Bucket theme extremely quickly and easily – it’s lean and well designed and has had no bugs so far (8 months in). The shortcodes have made laying information out really easy and have definitely enhanced the site’s design.

I wanted to make a few changes that I didn’t understand recently and while trying to find somebody to do this, emailed their help desk. They got back to me the same day with simple instructions to follow which allowed me to make the change really quickly.

I was really surprised at the level of attention these guys paid and how swift their response was.

Hi there,

Thank you for the 5* rating!

We appreciate having you around.

All the best,


  • What will I need to use this theme?

    You will need your own domain and a web hosting with the current WordPress version installed. To make things easier for you, we recommend the Flywheel hosting company.

  • Can I customize the themes?

    Yes, all of our themes are licensed under GPL (like Word­Press itself), so you can cus­tomize them with no restric­tions. Feel free to adapt it to your own writing or business needs!

  • Do I need to purchase any plugins?

    This theme does not need premium plugins to configure it as showcased in the demo. Some plugins might require premium licenses for advanced features but that’s not a requirement.

  • Does this theme use a page builder?

    You should be able to run any page builder of your choice (Elementor, Divi, Visual Composer or others) with no problem. All this said we didn't use one when creating this theme.

  • Can I use the themes for client work?

    If it’s just one client, sure. If you’re a freelancer or a small agency that wants to create multiple websites for clients, you can pick the Themes Bundle plan and have unlimited access to all of our themes to build as many websites that you want.

  • What is your refund policy?

    Although we don’t think you’ll ever want a refund, our goal is always to be fair and reasonable. The refund policy is not any different: we offer a 14–days no‐risk money back guarantee on all of our themes. No questions asked!
