I have just tried to embed vanilla using this theme and I’m getting this error Fatal error: Call to undefined function UserUrl() in …/themes/silicon/class.siliconthemehooks.php on line 178

I was just wondering if there is anything that i can do to fix it?

Thanks in advance for your help


Ah no worries, hope you had a great time.

I’m using 2.0.18b1

2.0.18b1? That sounds like a really old version, 2.0.18 was officially released a long time ago and there have been a lot of updates since. You might want to consider upgrading to the latest version of 2.0.18.

In the meantime, I’ll double-check and make sure Silicon works find when embedded.

Hi, I just tried it with the version you said but unfortunately it’s still occurring, any other suggestions?

Really appreciate your help


For those who don’t know, Vanilla 2.1 has just been released! I haven’t yet completed a 2.1-compatible version of Silicon, but I’m hard at work! Will update you guys when I get closer.

Buenas. Estoy interesado en comprar su tema pero quisiera saber si le seguirá dando mantenimiento. Estoy por actualizar mi foro a la versión 2.1 pero quiero saber si su tema ya es compatible, quiero saber si su tema permite incrustar pockets y demas plugins. Estare a la espera de su respuesta. Gracias y saludos desde Perú

Translate Good. I am interested in buying your item but I want to know if he will continue to maintain. Looking to upgrade my forum to version 2.1 but I want to know if your topic is already compatible, I want to know if your theme allows you to embed pockets and other plugins. I’ll be waiting for your reply. Thanks and greetings from Peru

I will be continuing to maintain Silicon, and am working on a 2.1-compatible version. Unfortunately, due to the way Silicon is designed, converting it to 2.1 has proven difficult, so I am reconstructing the theme from scratch. Will let you know when I’ve completed a stable release.

Gracias, estare atento a esa version para adquirirla. Translate: Thanks, I’ll watch for that version to acquire it.

Just wanted to update everyone on the 2.1 conversion process! I’m really excited for the next version of Silicon, it’s been redesigned from the ground up to be more modern and responsive while maintaining that classic Silicon look. I’ve posted the first screenshot of the new design here: http://secondwindprojects.com/silicon/discussion/1165/silicon-2.1-preview

Is this theme compatible with the YAGA addon? http://vanillaforums.org/addon/yaga-application

I’ll check and let you know. If it isn’t now, it will be.

wow, Amazing Job!;

An update to your purchase of Silicon – Premium Vanilla 2 Theme by jspautsch is now available in your downloads? Just got this on my email

It was a minor update to fix some responsive issues with the table layout.

Okay thank you for the information.

I am using Vanilla Version 2.1.3, the problem is After installation of your theme for modern Vanilla, I got below Preview

I think something went wrong there..

Very strange. I’ll look into this and get back to you.

Try this: Browse to your \vanilla\cache\Smarty\compile\ directory and delete all files contained within. Refresh your forum homepage and see if that fixes it.

I removed the installation which is downloaded from http://vanillaforums.org/ and re installed with Softaculous.. It works fine now.. Thankx…

i was using vanilla 2.1.7 and when i updated to their latest security update 2.1.8. i tend to have a displaced side bar in this link http://teckroom.com/activity but the homepage is okay. Can you please help me out?

Hmmm, I’m not seeing the issue. Can you send me a screenshot?

Is it possible to hide the subcategories before you klick on the parent? this would be great…

Great idea, I’ve always struggled with how large and unwieldy that categories menu can get.

Good news, someone made a plugin for it! http://vanillaforums.org/addon/expandablecategories-plugin

I’ll be adding some themeing to it for Silicon in the next update.

The “Add Menu Items” plugin doesn’t appear to be working with your theme? How can I add additional links to the navigation menu?

I’ll check it out, thanks for the tip.

When there are posts without profile pic in the modern layout… all goes crazy.. can you fix this soon?

Do you have the Gravatar plugin enabled? It’s required for the theme to work (it’s included in Vanilla but not enabled). It will populate missing avatars with a default.

My Views are always “1”? What can be the reason for this? Also after 4 replies..

I think this is a Vanilla issue. I saw you posted on vanillaforums.org, did you manage to fix the problem?

I really like your theme. But I have a few questions :

1. Does Silicon have features like badges and all that ? keeping the crowd stuff. 2. Does Silicon have features for upload images, embedded video on posting? 3. Does Silicon enables social media log in, and make the user social media account for signature every posting?


Hey addinawan,

Features #2 and #3 you mentioned are features available in the Vanilla software, which Silicon is a theme for. They’re not features I implemented, so to learn more about them I’d check out vanillaforums.org. You can ask questions there if you run into issues.

Feature #1 I’m not sure about, I think it’s available as a plugin if I understand you correctly. I’d check out the site I linked above, you can find plugins there.
