Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What version of WordPress does the Socrates Theme work on?

Socrates works on versions 2.6 and above.

How many domains can I install Socrates on?

Personal license is good one personal domain, unlimited license for all your personal domains. See our licensing page for more info.

Is Socrates Search Engine Optimized?

Like most WordPress themes, Socrates relies on the WordPress framework and plugins for search engine optimization. Some themes will state that they are SEO optimized because they build in custom title, meta tag and linking elements. We actually plan on doing that for our next release.

However, in our download area we have several videos which show you how to install our recommended SEO plugins, and also ways to setup Socrates to be more SEO friendly. This is something most themes lack. They build in features, but they don’t teach how simply optimizing WordPress itself can be much more effective for SEO. So no matter what theme you use, it can always be search engine optimized.

Yes, and if you come across a plugin that doesn’t work, please let us know. There are 1000’s of plugins so please understand we haven’t tested with all of them. Please do not email us asking us if a particular plugin works. You can safely assume it does… if not, we’ll make it work for you.

I have a WordPress.com blog, can I use Socrates?

I’m sorry, no. Socrates must be installed on a domain running WordPress software. It won’t work on a WordPress.com hosted blog.

Your web host has little impact on installing a new theme. If you already have WordPress, you just install the theme as you would any other. You do it via Appearance > Add new themes. There are tutorials and instruction in the Member’s Area.

With the Socrates Theme, can you limit the columns to just one (no sidebars) and remove the header completely – in order to make a clean site without any distractions?

Yes, there are “no sidebar” layouts and optional header display in Version 2.03+.
