The Natural Theme 2

The Natural Theme has received a heavy dose of awesomeness to the design, functionality and theme features. Check out the updated demo here. Rather than having 3 separate color variations as in previous versions of the theme, we have condensed the variations in to one super theme — containing background and color choices within the new Options Framework. In addition, the design has been perfected, a new featured post section has been added to the homepage, the content slider has been updated and much more. The Natural Theme is an excellent solution for businesses working in or around the environment. The theme also makes a great blog, portfolio or storefront. Check out some additional features included with the latest update:

Options Framework

The theme update also integrates with the Options Framework plugin, which offers a much more sleek options interface.

Featured Content Slider

The new featured content slider for the Natural Theme can display posts with a featured image or a featured video.

Featured Videos

The theme is now capable of displaying featured videos within the slider and on the homepage.

Featured Image Banners

Featured images can now be added to pages and page templates to be displayed as a banner image for that particular page.

Numbered Pagination

The blog and category pagination is now much more accommodating — allowing you to skip ahead to specific page numbers.

Color Options

We have included options for changing the link and highlight colors within the Options Framework — providing a greater array of customization options.

  1. Hi, if I bought the old one (it was still called Organic Theme), will I be able to update it to the new one? Or do I have to purchase the new one again?


  2. The featured video section on the home page is not a 16×9 aspect ratio, so most videos would appear with a black bar on the left and right. Can the height of this section be adjusted? Furthermore, as a pre-sales question, could I get some help doing this? I’ve tried to make adjustments in firebug but am not having the best of luck. Thank you.

  3. can I have some discount , I want to buy this beautiful theme… can you help me, please? (sorry I really don’t speak english).

  5. Hello,

    Theme updates used to be available for download in the support forums, but it looks like the forums have been shut down. Where should I go to find updates?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  6. On this theme, when I embed a featured video to a post and have it displayed in the home slider, and you try to “watch” the video right there on the homepage by pressing the play button on the video, after 10 seconds it stops playing the video and transitions to the next slide!

    Shouldn’t it stay on the video that is being watched?

    • Unfortunately, this is the default nature of the flexslider unless you add a custom solution such as froogaloop ( for Vimeo videos.

      The solutions available at this time are custom, and don’t always work properly depending on the video embed source — which is why it’s not integrated into the theme. My recommendation would be to set the slideshow transition time to “Hold Frame” if you are using multiple videos in the slider.

    • Just to add as well: if you interact with the slider prior to watching video, then depending on the service, video should pause (operative word being ‘should’).

  7. We were using youtube. It is silly to have a playable video on a slider if it doesn’t hold still during viewing. I assumed when I saw featured videos on the slide for this theme it was included in functionality to be able to watch the video from the homepage. Thanks for letting me know it is NOT included.


    • Hi Allison,

      Did you ask prior to purchasing?

      Video will pause if the slider is interacted with prior to viewing a video, but if a video is interacted with prior to interacting with the slider, then the slider will transition slides as it normally does. If you wanted to try Vimeo for your videos, you could look into integrating froogaloops into the theme (a headache, and would require customization: Otherwise you could set the slider to ‘hold’, or look into another custom solution, but videos do work with the theme and in the slider.


  8. Quick Question concerning the updates 2016 Natural Lite theme. I understand that the lite theme has limitations. Can the 3 columns (About, Company, History) showcased in the demo directly under the posts slider be created in the lite version without a page builder option?

  9. Hello, David,

    We love this theme! Thank you. Using Natural Lite on our website now and we’re wondering if there’s a way to expand the characters visible in the text description of the title of the posts that come up in the Slideshow. It appears that it’s 15 characters and we may want to use more than that at some point. Is there a way in the CSS to allow up to 20 characters in the text description?
