Hi!

I have some issues regarding the sliders and aspect ratios/slide sizes. For example I added the wide slider, but no matter what size of my image it just stretches and looks really bad. I tried setting height for the slider but there was no difference.

What width and height should my images have there?

See example here: http://www.werkstadsbussen.se/

Otherwise it´s an awesome theme! Great work! :)

Any news on the revolution slider issue? I was on 1.2.3. everything worked, but all of the sudden after updating to 1.2.4 didn´t work anymore. I am using Chrome and Firefox. No image is showing. http://cs.allmana.de

Hi master2907, can you try the method posted by hearny here http://bit.ly/ZTNi36. As our programmer is on a business holiday and we will not be able to help you with that now.

Hi Support angels,

I have an issue on wide slider. I want to use wide slider and I already add images in Slider meta box but it does not show up in the page. it means, the page will load without any slider. the only slider which is work is rev. slider. others don’t work.

Please help me to fix it.

thanks,

Laborator

Hi shahrooz, maybe it’s because you have published the page without clicking Save As in the slider, after uploading images click Save as in the slider then Publish the page.

Same issue as @vils – Revolution slider doesn’t work – nothing happens when Create Slider is clicked.

Any update on this?

Anyone who purchased the corporate bundle and is having issues with the Revolution Slider I found a work around.

I installed the Alterna theme that comes with the bundle.

This asks you to install plugins one of them is Revolution Slider.

Install the slider and then change the theme back to Silicon.

Hope This helps someone.

Love the theme too.

Laborator

Hello dude, thank you for posting this useful tip here, we appreciate it.

No problem, I noticed afterwards you probably dont even need to install the Alterna theme, just extract the alterna.zip file and you will find the file revslider2.3.3.zip inside the recommended_plugins folder, you could try installing this manually to save having to install the other theme.

Thank you @hearny! This really works – installed Alterna with Revolution slider, then switched back to Silicone. This has solved the problem!

Hi Laborator Team, thanks for the stunning theme and the amazing support +

I have a curiosity, is it somehow possible that the contacts from the contactform send their message directly to the clients email, without looking for it in wordpress?

We didn’t create such option in Silicon because of some servers have the e-mail server blocked so it wouldn’t work for some and we made it locally.

I’d like to help you out to do this but our programmer is on business holiday for some days.

Hi, is there anyone on the forum who can tell me how to make my blog posts show up without readers having to “Read More”. I could not find a place within the coding to do so and would like for people to not have to click. Thanks!

Laborator
Hi nungvung22, there’s not an option for that, but I’ve made a modification for you- Go to the CSS Custom Styling in Silicon and in the first textarea add this:
.post_entries .post_entry .post_details {
height: auto !important;
}

.post_entries .post_entry .post_details .post_meta {
position: relative !important;
}
click Save.
Now upload and replace this file: http://cl.ly/Oakn
to wp-content/themes/silicon/tpls/

Cheers, Art.

Default-user

Thanks so much.

I did this and nothing happened. I did not have the option to replace a file on my files page. I simply added the file, but it did not change anything for me on my site :-/

Default-user

OK, I renamed it and that definitely changed it. It shows more of my posts now, but not all of them. Thanks though.

Default-user

P.S.- I really like this theme. I’m just a bit slow at figuring out how to use it ;-)

Hello there, i just bought this theme. Having problems setting stuff up. What is the easiest way i can make my site look like the demo (wide slider) and from there i can edit and replace my own stuff. Thanks !

Laborator

The easiest way to do this is reading the documentation, FAQ’s and watching the video tutorials posted on the first page before asking for support.

Here are some useful links:

My problem (not showing wide slider) has been solved when I re-download and installed the 1.2.4 version.

Great to hear that you managed to fix it on yourself,

Hello How do I make one of my pages my default page for the website? At the moment I have my about me page ordered as number 1 and I thought it would make that appear first, but instead I has my posts appearing first when you go to the website. Can you change this at all?

Laborator

Hi Jessica, to make a page your homepage follow these instructions: Login to the Admin Panel, now click Settings > Reading, now click on A static page (select below) and select your homepage and your blog page.

Hi there,

I bought this very nice theme, but i got up to a problem. I’m trying to change the content inside the pricetables, but it seems i can only change the price en the purchase button. Please help me out. Thanks.

Laborator

Hi hofline1234, you have to set up the price table via the Visual Composer, you can add and delete fields I dont know what’s wrong with it.

Hello, I am testing it with qTranslate and seems to work great! I can’t find out how to translate the contact form and map address and contact information. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Laborator

Hello tadpole, Silicon fully supports only WPML and Codestyling Localization plugins, other plugins work also but with some bugs, we cannot support you on qTranslate as we never mentioned Silicon to support this plugin.

Art.

tadpole

Hello, thanks for your quick reply. I don’t have a problem with qTranslate, I just said it works as expected. I wanted to know whether the contact form text can be adjusted. Nevermind I will just use a contact form plugin instead. Thank you for your time.

Absolutely fantastic theme, got it through the coporate bundle! Well done! One stupid question: How do I remove the links part in the footer? Thanks again for such a great theme :)

Laborator

Hello Aboutabrand, to remove the bottom footer you’ve got to log into the admin panel and on the left menu click Silicon, then click on Footer, on the Footer Text remove the text inside the field and click Save.

Thats all you have to do, and sorry for this late reply but we’ve been very busy.

Art.

Aboutabrand

No worries, thanks for answering :) It’s not quite what I was asking though; I’m thinking of the reproduction of the menu items/links that’s located in the footer, I can’t find a way to remove them?

Laborator

If you want to display other links and pages you’ve got to create a menu in the Footer Menu which is located in Appearance > Menus. Hope this was what you were looking for.

Hi, I wanted to add the socialist jquery plugin to the theme so I could use on a page but have been unable to do so no matter what I do. The plugin could be seen here: http://plugins.in1.com/socialist. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

Laborator

Hi wiggybrain, I can’t access the URL you provided, anyway we do not give support for plugins that are “officially” supported by Silicon, Silicon also has it’s own sharing buttons.

Art.

wiggybrain

Hi Art,

I double checked and the url: http://plugins.in1.com/socialist is definitely correct. Not sure why you can’t access it. It’s not really a share button plugin, I definitely use the silicon theme’s share buttons, this plugin combines your social media posts like pinterest on to a page.

The instructions:

1. are to include the js and css scripts in your html <—-But I don’t know where the html in the theme would be or which specific php file to add it to, the header perhaps? and then 2. Apply jQuery Socialist to any element within your js code.. <—-Which php file would I add the code to? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!

I still can’t get the slider to work even though I’ve followed the instructions above from @hearny – the ‘Create Slider’ button just doesn’t fire.

Is there a theme update coming soon?

Laborator

Hi ryanbrough, we don’t have any other solution then that’s all we can help you, also you cannot get the other updates by Silicon because you got the theme via the bundle, the updates will be available only for the users who buy Silicon independently.
