    1. I’m trying to make the buttons smaller, this is the code I’m using:

    solid-button-link {
    display: inline-flex !important;
    padding: 1rem 2.2rem 1rem 2.2rem !important;

    2. Also, to translate some of the words of the theme like “read more” or “older posts” do you advice a specific plugin?
    I have a WPML license but I think it’s too big for the few words that have to be translated.

    Hope you can help me.
    Thanks, best regards.



    I guess you primarily target the button that is displayed under ther posts feed on archive pages. As it’s the only button that’s being stretched to a certain width.

    To not having it stretched, please use the following code:

    .mauer-pagination {text-align: center;}
    .solid-button-link {
    	padding-top: 1.3rem;
    	padding-bottom: 1.1rem;
    	padding-left: 3.7rem;
    	padding-right: 3.5rem;

    I’d recommend the above mentioned padding values. If you decide to change them, please make sure to keep the padding-top 0.2 greater than padding-bottom, and padding-left 0.2 greater than padding-right. This will help keep the text visually centered.

    Speaking about translating static phrases like “read more” or “older posts”,

    This theme is translation-ready in a regular WordPress fashion. That means it comes with a language file which has all the default texts.

    That said, I believe the easiest way of translating a theme is by using the Loco Translate plugin.

    After you install and activate it, in your Admin Panel please go to ‘Loco Translate’ > ‘Themes’ > ‘Mauer Essentialist’ and click ‘New Language’.

    Select your language (in this example it’s ‘Portuguese’). And click ‘Start translating’:

    You will see a list of all the strings ready to be translated. Here is how it looks:

    When you’re done translating, click ‘Save’ and ‘Sync’.

    Now if you have your WordPress language set to Portuguese*, then your website will display the translated strings.

* — ‘Settings’ > ‘General’ > ‘Site language’ (at the bottom).



    OK thanks for the advice of the button.

    About language, if the theme has default texts in spanish, why are some things still in english when the language set is spanish?

    thanks again,

    pd. I put my rate again on themeforest.



    The theme’s default language is English, and the theme does not have Spanish translation provided. What the theme has is a file that makes translation possible — e.g. with the Loco Translate plugin.

    So, in a word, this theme does not come translated to Spanish, it comes translation-ready.

    Thanks for having rated the theme. I really appreciate that.
