Is this theme affected by the XSS security issue: https://blog.sucuri.net/2015/04/security-advisory-xss-vulnerability-affecting-multiple-wordpress-plugins.html ?? or any others recently revealed? Since you seem to not be updating the theme, I’d really like to know.

Also, is it compatible with the latest versions of Visual Composer and Revolution Slider? I want to update those for security reasons, but don’t want to break the site….

We don’t have any of these plugin in our themes but if you want to update the plugins manually, I can send you the files via e-mail.

Kind Regards,

That’s fine. I have access to them because I’ve purchased them for other sites. I’m just wondering if the latest versions break anything with the theme?

But more importantly, is the theme affected by the latest vulnerabilities? Please, please, please look into this if you haven’t already. We don’t want to be exposed to a security breach for using your theme.

Hi there, no we haven’t used those functions when we created Silicon :)

You don’t need to worry.

Hi there! How can I switch the reply-to email for the notifications that are sent for the contact form? I would like to reply-to email to be the person’s email that is submitting the form.

Hi renriquez, can you please post with the account you bought the theme, this way we can verify that you’re a real customer as we do not offer support to users who doesn’t have “Purchased” badge.

Hi Luis,

I am sorry but the bundle ended two years ago and we cannot give support for the theme version inside it.

Hi there,

I Purchased this theme, but it didn’t include Visual Composer for designing page layouts and I couldn’t find any page layout function when I installed the theme in Wordpress.

I did find a license included in the downloaded folder an Item Purchase Code for Visual Composer but no plugin zip folder.

Please cold you kindly provide info or plugins for page layouts within this theme as I really like the demos I’ve seen.

Cheers,

Ed

Is this theme ready for WordPress 4.2.2. Don’t want to update without making sure.

Hi there,

The theme has not been updated since a long time and it is not preferred to update it as it may cause any problem with the newest version of WP installed.

Kind Regards,
Art

I Updated tot Wordpress 4.2.2 and now my website does not work anymore. I can only see a white screen.

What can I do? I’m using Silicon 1.5 Regards, Janneke

It is not recommended to update the WordPress version if the theme does not support it, we have not released an update of it since a long time and therefore it is recommended to downgrade the WordPress version back and the theme should work.

Is it possible to add an email and telephone number in the top right of header? If so how Also have you any idea of a time frame for updating this theme so it does comply and work with the latest version of wordpress. I have mention problems with the template and visual composer as mentioned before in posts Regards Luke

Hi LHGraphicDesign,

This question is related to theme developer and I am unable to give you any solution about this because I am not backend developer.

Our theme developer Arlind and Art can help you with this, but they took the vacation and will be back on 18 June.

When they comes back, just reply to this thread and you will make sure Arlind and Art will see your comment.

Hope for your understanding :)

Kind Regards,

Hi Arlind/Art I was told to reply to this thread to see if you can help with the above also the contact form doesnt seem to work its the first time ive used the contact form but have been informed by my client that it doesnt work.. Regards Luke

Hi Luke

Sure you can modify the header and put your own desired markup, but you need to edit files manually, so here is how to add telephone and email in the header:

1. Open this file: wp-content/themes/silicon/tpls/blocks-header.php

2. On line 21 (inside container) add this HTML

<div class="row" id="header-top-bar">
    <div class="eight columns">
        +1234567890
    </div>

    <div class="eight columns" style="text-align: right">
        <a href="#">my@email.com</a>
    </div>
</div>

Also, about the contact form, I am not sure why it is not working, please try installing this plugin and test if it sends email, if so, then I can give you help, otherwise if this plugin can’t send emails then the problem is with the server STMP that doesn’t allow PHP to send email:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/

Cheers

Hello, my Silicon theme-based website shows badly from some days ago. Slider and Feature tabs in homepage don’t show properly

Wordpress is updated to last version and only contact form 7 plugin is active. www.inpactos.com

Any hint? Thanks!

Hi Joanramon,

Can you please add the code below to Custom CSS

#features_blocks .features_blocks .columns {
  width: 220px;
  margin-right: 15px;
  margin-bottom: 10px;
}

Kind Regards,
—Ylli

Hi thanks, this solved the feature tabs problem!

The homepage slider unfortunately doesn’t show yet. What can be the issue here?

Hi Joanramon,

I’m sorry but i can’t help you with that :S

If you want we can send latest version of Revolution Slider on email, and try if that fixes your issue.

To send us email use this link and please write us your request again, because we receive a lot of emails on daily basis and we unfortunately can’t remember all customers requests.

P.S: Please note that we usually do not respond to emails that request support, because here is our primary support forum. We use contact form just for sending sensitive information.

Kind Regards,
—Ylli
