Hi. I purchased this theme few days ago. When I install it Wordpress says that stylesheet missed also the file is corrupted. I have unzipped the file and I have installed only this file: silicon.zip. Is it correct? Thank you.

Laborator

Hi valevdr,

Yes, that is exactly what you should do because the main file you have downloaded includes documentation, extra bonus files (psd, html) and wordpress theme. So silicon.zip is the main theme, and you have done it right.

Thanks for purchase

Thak you, but when I install the theme, the installation is not good because wordpress says: corrupted file, stylesheet missing. I dowloaded it many times, I try to install using wordpress, control panel of the server and ftp too, but each time the file I read “corrupted theme, stylesheet missing”. I have Worpress 3.5 what can I do? I try to istall it from tuesday. Thank you.

Hi Laborator, I’m having a hard time getting the slider image to align with the top of the homepage and wrap around the logo and menu in the header. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!

Laborator

Hi mmpayne15, Can you please send me some screenshots so I can figure out how can I fix this issue for you.

I figured it out, thanks! I am having a problem with the visual editor now, though. Whenever I try to edit a page on the site, the visual editor doesn’t load. The loading icon just keeps spinning. Any idea what’s up? Thanks!

Laborator

Have you tried clearing the browser cache, because sometimes wordpress generates browser unreadable javascript and that makes impossible to load all required JavaScript files, I have encountered this problem and buy hitting Control/Cmd + R several times the problem is gone, but repeats time to time, I dont know why.

Hope that I helped you

Nope, definitely still doesn’t work. The circle icon just spins and never loads the page. I’ve tried it on three different machines now.

Is the latest version of Visual Composer included in the theme?

For anyone else having this problem, install the Google Libraries plugin. It solves the problem.

I’m trying to configure Wide Slider but it’s not working. I’ve created the slides, inserted in homepage like this: [rev_slider slider1 homepage] This page on the layout type is fluid, and on the “Layout, Skin, Color and Patterns” is also set as Fluid. What am I doing wrong. I’m developing this website here: http://marcogaspar.com/dev/

Can you help me please?

Other thing is how can I put Google Maps with that pink color? Thank you.

Laborator

Hi mfgaspar

The best way to insert slider on your page is:

Create new or edit existing page and set template “Slider Page”

On slider options select slider type “Revolution Slider” On below “select” field you choose the ID of the slider you have created on backend. And it will show up correctly.

If you want to have expanded slider, go to Revolution Slider menu item, click to edit slider options (not slides) and choose this option:

Where can I find the settings for the progress bars? The shortcode shows this

[laborator_skillsprogressbars title=”Skills” skills_list=”W3sibGFiZWwiOiJXZWIgRGVzaWduIiwicGVyY2VudGFnZSI6Ijg3In0seyJsYWJlbCI6IkJyYW5kaW5nIiwicGVyY2VudGFnZSI6IjYwIn0seyJsYWJlbCI6IkFwcCBEZXZlbG9wbWVudCIsInBlcmNlbnRhZ2UiOiI5NSJ9LHsibGFiZWwiOiJQcm9kdWN0aW9uIiwicGVyY2VudGFnZSI6IjM2In1d”

Where can I make changes to this skill level?

Laborator

Hi ETheme,

Editing progress skills bars is only supported via Visual Composer, for example, you click on Edit button:

http://cl.ly/MyM2

And it will show up the list with skills and their percentages like this:

http://cl.ly/MyNt

This is more user-friendly way to edit shortcodes thats why it contains the base64 encoded string because this string may be broke the shortcode if not encoded

Thanks for purchase

Hi guys,

I have some questions, hope you will find Time to answer:

1. i Need Portfolio and Gallery with slider 2. how i can change Background-Color of the menu? Need opacity like the sticky menu 3. can i add Pattern at the slider? 4. Where i can translate the Portfolio?

Thanks

Laborator

Hi think-creative69,

Yes, we are working on the next version – v1.2 to implement feature requested on your number 3

1) Will be implemented on Silicon v1.2

2) For your second question, do you want to change entire header background (white bg)?

If so you can do something like this and insert CSS on options page:

header {
background: #fff;
}

header #site_header {
background: none;
}
The result will be something like this: http://cl.ly/MxSn

4) To translate portfolio or any page download and install “Codestyling Localization” plugin from WordPress – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/codestyling-localization/ and then you can translate all the strings used in the theme.

Regards

- Arlind

think-creative69

great:) i want exactly this menu – thx! i will try the plugin to translate. will silicon v1.2 be available soon? you have changed theme-folder for me, can you do this for v.1.2 too? greets

Laborator

Yes of course I can change the folder name again, and the version v1.2 will be available early in the next week

think-creative69

where i have to paste in the code? i tried it in theme options -> custom css styling, but nothing happens

Laborator

Try this instead, because I let the background pure white instead adding some opacity

header {
background: rgba(255,255,255, .5) !important;
}

header #site_header {
background: none !important;
}

I have also added !important to foce changing the color.

Hi. Great theme. I see that when you are using mobile version, menu is fixed and without scroll. So, if it’s long, you can not see it all.

Laborator

Hi pulpfic, yes i saw that, we are thinking to fix it with a automatic scrollbar, by removing overflow hidden

Thanks for reporting this issue

Default-user

Hi. So, how can I solve this? Or will you do it on your next upgrade? Thanks!

Laborator

This will added on the v1.2 of the theme, in two or three days maximum

Hi, i’m having problems with the menu. I change the position of pages and blind someone of them but the page does not change. It takes the order of publication of the pages and not the menu y config…

Laborator

Hi albertomanelli,

Have you set the menu “in-use” on admin panel like shown here:

Thanks for purchase

Default-user

Hi, yes I did it first, also y did it by the personalization panel but when I save and recharge de page It doesn’t change.

Laborator

Hmm, it seems interesting, for me works very good. Maybe you forgot to press “Save menu” button, it does all the trick

Default-user

I did it many times and I can’t find where is the fall, maybe I’ve to reinstall the theme, or maybe the problem is with the browser I’m using to make the changes (Chrome). Do you have any suggestions, many thanks…

Hi Fantastic Theme. I have really enjoyed working with it. I have 2 questions:

1. Can I add certain categories from the portfolio to specific pages? Currently I can only add latest catergory. Is there a piece of code I can manually insert which would do this? Do you think you may include this feature in the next iteration? This is fairly important ability to have for my site, so if you can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.

2. On the front homepage, I have the wideslider, and there is a link attached to wide slider image. If I click on social media icons in the menu, the link from the slider image takes precedence and is active. Can you please fix this bug?

Great theme… and very easy to work with. Thanks… My site is at juliecook.net

Laborator

Hi Julie

Sorry for the delay, because we were working to fix few issues and making v1.2 ready for release

For your questions:

1. I am not sure if I am understanding it correctly, but if you want categories in meny, go to Portfolio > Categories and copy the link “View” – http://cl.ly/Mzfn

2. I noticed this issue and we have fixed it. I can send you the files on your email or if you can wait for the next update

Cheers

Hi there, This design is exactly what I was looking for, so thank you very much. The only thing I’m struggling with, is that I can only get the side bar on the homepage, i.e. with social media widgets, archived posts, categories, etc. I’d like to be able to either have this on every page, or alternatively be able to pick and choose which pages have it. Is there any way to do this? I’ve tried changing the page template but none of them give the required result, i.e. where the side bar is on the right hand side.

Thanks for any help, Mark

Awesome theme. I’m just about to purchase but was wondering about the social buttons. We use YouTube quite a bit and will be needing this button. Is there a possibility of adding it in?

Thanks!

Laborator

Hi 2CS,

Unfortunately, currently this button is not included on the theme, but in 2 days the new update (v1.2) will be ready and for sure, Youtube icon will be implemented.

Thank you. I’ll wait a couple of days and purchase with the update. :)

Hello, if this template is the ability to add video to the portfolio?

Laborator

Hi KO20,

Yes this is possible, here is an example, just click the photo on portfolio:

http://themes.laborator.co/silicon/portfolio/live-detour/

- Arlind

Default-user

Ok, thanks for the information, and if the video is set to pop up when you click on a thumbnail in potfolio? I mean, for example, the sub http://themes.laborator.co/#theme=silicon

Laborator

That feature is not implemented in this version, only when clicking inside portfolio item

Default-user

and whether it is planned to expand this functionality? it would be a very good solution for portfolio

Laborator

Definitely, we will implement this feature too in the next update for sure!

Hi Laborator, thanks for the great Theme! I have two problems though. 1. The Options button in the upper right corner doesn’t work with your theme. When i switch themes everything is ok. But when I turn on the Silicon Theme back on, it doesn’t react. 2. The Portolio – Add Portfolio Item. When I try to create a new Portfolio Item there ist nothing like your “Checklist” you write about in the Documentation. The Portfolio Items I create doesn’t seem to look anything like yours.

Please let me know what to do with this Problems. Thank YOU!

Hi, purchased this item last week. Couple of things you could clear up for me please. Can’t see how to replicate your ‘Portfolio Categories’ page, can you give some instruction on how to do this, also when you go into a portfolio piece, there is no way to get back to the portfolio category page.

thanks in advance

Laborator
Hi wozzabikes, to set up the Portfolio Categories first set the page template to: Portfolio on the right side, after you’ve done this a box named Portfolio Page Options, make it look like in this image: http://cl.ly/image/2u3P2K3o2K0X Hope this helps you.


Thank you for purchasing the theme,
Art.

wozzabikes

Thanks for this but one outstanding thing is how to get back to the portfolio page from a portfolio piece.Most templates have an icon for instance above the portfolio piece to take you back to the portfolio. Is the only way to get back to go back to the main menu as this isn’t that great. thanks

Laborator

Hi wozzabikes,

Yes, you are absolutely right we will include that button in the next release.

Hi. If you have for example 15 pictures on a gallery, how does it run? does it show all thumbnails on 2 different rows or does it appear a unique row with a slider for all thumbnails? Could I see any example? I see that in all galleries of demo (for example http://themes.laborator.co/silicon/gallery/cities/) there are only a few thumbnails so I can not see what happens if you have 15 pictures or more. Thanks!

Laborator
Hi pulpfic, I have updated the album you sent me and added a few more images to have an example with two columns thumbnails, here is the demo: http://themes.laborator.co/silicon/gallery/cities/

Have a nice day, Art.
Default-user

Ok! Now I see it… Thanks! So, thumbnails appear in different rows. It’s nice but I think it’s not very useful when you have 3, 4 or more rows of thumbnails because you have to scroll down first and, when click on thumbnail, then you have to scroll up to see the big picture.

Laborator

Maybe in the next update we will add an image carousel for the thumbnails to display only in a single line.

Hi,

I’m using the pink silicon theme, but I want to make the website title smaller. Is there any way to do this without editing the css file? or if not, could you point me to the code that must be edited?

Secondly, I wish to make the default size of the featured image per post smaller; is this possible?

Thanks,

Mark

Laborator
Hello markwhelan92, unfortunately there is not an option like that for the logo size, but you have to open style.css and put this line of code there:
header #site_header .logo_env .logo_txt {
 font-size: SIZEpx !important;
}
instead of SIZE put the size you want to use in the title.

And about the second issue, could you provide us with more information on which blog style are you using, one column, two columns with or without sidebar and we will check if that is possible.

Thank you for purchasing our theme, Art.

Default-user

Hi,

Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately that line of code doesn’t seem to be doing the trick. I’ve tried messing around with it but each time there is no change.

As for the blog style, it is one column with a side bar on the right. The featured picture appears in a box roughly 300×300 on the blog feed, but if you click the actual post the featured picture comes out huge; about 800×800 (when the actual image is much smaller than this).

If my first problem is unsolvable that’s okay, it’s this featured picture thing that’s bugging me now!

Thanks again, Mark

PS: the theme is working brilliantly and well worth the money.

Laborator
Hi again, can you try by adding this:
<style>
.logo_txt {
    font-size: 11px !important;
}
</style>
in your header.php file.

Thank you for your kind comments.
Art.

Thanks guys, that did it, cheers.
