I see the post sharing options within the blog but I don’t see a place to add the facebook “like” button or the Google +1 button for posts. Am I missing them or do they not exist? Is this something I need to add in third party?

Laborator

Hi t_parrish,

Currently these features they are not implemented, we are planning to implement in the next release.

Can you please try a third party plugin until we release the new update, tomorrow evening.

Thanks for purchasing our theme

Hi Laborator, I would really like You to answer my questions. I still can’t get the Options Panel in the Admin Area to open. Is this just a problem with my installation? And I can’t make my Portfolio Items Detail Page to look like Yours.

Laborator

Hi drg25,

Can you please create an account for your admin panel so I can see where is the problem and fix your issues.

Write private message and I will respond via email.

Sorry for the delay as we had too many requests to respond to.

Hi. Great theme. Would def recommend.

One small thing. How can I stop it saying the author on the blog posts, and in the thumbnails to the blogs. I dont want it saying ‘admin’ on all my posts. I saw a drop down in the admin panel for ‘display author info’ but turning this to no hasnt fixed it.

Any help would be great thanks.

Hey guys,

Thanks a lot!

Hi jmaclifford,

Thank you for your compliments, we really appreciate them and we would like to use as testimonials.

After we release the new version (v1.2) we will start to include some videos for how to get the most out of Silicon theme.

Once again thank you for your kind comments.

Hi again,

I’m just setting up the homepage on my site and am having difficulty figuring out how to have the ‘feature_blocks’ appear on my site as they do on your demo site. I’m using the visual composer but can’t figure out which element to add?

Also, I’m only wanting 3 boxes, even width and spacing, sitting underneath a super caption I’ve put in. Any suggestions on how I can do this would be terrific!

Thanks guys, J

Laborator

Hi jmaclifford,

Yes of course, I will give you the ready to use shortcode for direct preview

[vc_row el_position="first"] [vc_column] [laborator_featurestabs title="Features Tabs Title" el_position="first last"] [/vc_column] [/vc_row] [vc_row] [vc_column] [laborator_supercaption el_position="first last"]

This is <strong>sample</strong> super caption.

[/laborator_supercaption] [/vc_column] [/vc_row] [vc_row el_position="last"] [vc_column width="1/3"] [vc_column_text el_position="first last"]

Text 1

[/vc_column_text] [/vc_column] [vc_column width="1/3"] [vc_column_text el_position="first last"]

Text 2

[/vc_column_text] [/vc_column] [vc_column el_position="last" width="1/3"] [vc_column_text el_position="first last"]

Text 3

[/vc_column_text] [/vc_column] [/vc_row]

Add this to your page, then click this button:

http://cl.ly/N1vU

And you will see the blocks:

http://cl.ly/N2Nd

You may change the order of blocks, edit their options and so on.

If you want to learn more how to use Visual Composer see this video:

I hope this makes sense to you

Thanks so much Arlind for your speedy and detailed reply. Keep up the great work!

Hey Alrind, couple more questions for you – I’m trying to change the margin/padding beneath the header as well as on the top and bottom of the super_captions. I can see that you can add custom CSS directly through the Silicon menu but I’m not having much luck getting that to work. Is there another way to do this? Or can you tell me how to correctly do it with custom styling via the theme menu?

Laborator
Hi jmaclifford, to make these changes go to the Theme Editor and select style.css and put your codes like this:
header {
padding-bottom: 10px !important;
}

The !important rule overwrites the existing padding/margin.

And for the Super Captions the code would be so:
.super_caption {
padding-top: 10px !important;
padding-bottom: 10px !important;
}

Hope this helped, Art.

how do I get the map to look like yours? When I try to add through Visual Settings, the map looks like a standard google map.

Laborator

Hi sandraw,

If you want to setup wide map, you should firstly set page template to “Contact Page”, then configure location and its set.

If you have issues, we will assist you.

P.S. Setting maps via Visual Composer its standard map.

Can you help me find the location setting? I looked everywhere :/

Also, For some reason the page layout always reverts to “Default” when I try to edit the page. What can I do to stop that.

Ps: Love the theme. It’s simple and elegant. Perfect for my needs. =)

Laborator

If that is not working, try creating/adding new page and apply the following settings:

1) http://cl.ly/N3Zf – Choose “Contact” template and click Publish/Update changes

2) You will be able now to see this meta box: http://cl.ly/N3Ul Configure the settings as shown in the image link above and then hit again Update button, and you will be able to see the map.

I am sure this will work

Thank you for your kind comments. Really appreciate that!

Hi. good job! ;) It would be great to be able to buy a HTML version of this theme!;)

Laborator

Hi tovot,

We do not plan to release HTML version of this theme, but if you purchase the WordPress Edition, you will have those files included in the package. Note that the HTML version doesnt support boxed layout, pricing tables and revolution slider is not included. It was build as a startup for WP edition, thats why it is not completed version.

Thanks for interesting,

I can’t seem to get the wide slider to work. I set the page template to “Slider” I select “Wide Slide”, scroll down to Slider box meta and upload the image. hit “update” and the slide is not showing. I’m able to use “Responsive” slide setting just fine, but when I do “Wide” it does not show up. I tried setting height as well but still not showing up.

Laborator

Hi sandraw,

If that is not working for you, try repeating that stap from creating blank new page and use the same procedure to setup the slider. This seems to be mostly wordpress bug I think. Because I tried and worked for me!

Hi, love the theme – sorry if this is covered somewhere – I can see the sample content xml file but am having trouble importing. Is there further documentation on how to import the sample data to make the site look like the demo?

Thanks in advance

Laborator

Hi tpiggott,

Don’t worry about it, I have answered this question to few users and I will surely answer to you.

Environment Setup

1) In order to install demo content browse to the extra/demo-content.xml

2) Import test data into your WordPress install. Do this by going to Tools -> Import.

Currently we are experiencing some issues with media importing but the content will be set up well. We are working to fix this asap

Hi and thanks for your prompt response! I have tried as you instruct, but it just hangs and does nothing, tried a few times now. I have now begun building from scratch and I will do my best to replicate what you have so nicely made as a demo – I think this will take me quite some time :-)

Hi there,

I bought the theme but somehow I can’t get the price table to work. Can you please give me the shortcode of the pricetable with 3 colomns?

Hi florisvv,

Thanks for purchasing Silicon theme. Here is the shortcode of pricing table. In order to edit it, you must use Visual Composer. It is easier for you because you have full control via GUI.

I have another question. When I add a button, it is the same colour as the theme. Is it possible that when my mouse goes on the button, the button turns into a different colour? The slider does it the way I want it, when you hover on the arrow, the arrow colour changes. Is that also possible with a button?

Nice theme, clean code, love it. One tiny question. Where can i change the date formatting for the portfolio items?

Laborator

Hi kratos85, thank you for your kind comments.

You may change the portfolio date format on Settings -> General page, or you may do this hardcoded way:

Open tpls/blocks-portfolioitemdetails.php and go to line 116:

<?php _e('Date', TD); ?>: <span><?php echo date(get_option('date_format'), strtotime($album_date)); ?></span>
replace with
<?php _e('Date', TD); ?>: <span><?php echo date("YOUR DATE FORMAT", strtotime($album_date)); ?></span>

So YOUR DATE FORMAT is the format you choose.

nope always returning the english date time strings- system is set to german, so should display februar instead of february, tested hardcode with j. F Y no work :/

Laborator

Aha, I have used the $wp_locale months values and they should be translated inside wordpress default textdomain/language files.

Laborator

Oh I think I have found a solution.

Try to replace the line of file I told you in the previous comment with this:

<?php _e('Date', TD); ?>: <span><?php echo date_i18n("YOUR DATE FORMAT", strtotime($album_date)); ?></span>

I’m trying to change the logo text to ‘Avenir Next’ defaulting to Arial, using the custom CSS feature, but it doesn’t appear to be working?

I entered: } .logo_txt { font-family: ‘Avenir Next’,Arial; font-size: 35px; text-decoration: none; }

Also, the footer bottom text container (where the copyright info is) doesn’t goto ‘full width’ – the main footer does however, but this remains boxed after selecting full width from the menu.

Thanks for any help.

Hi

1) try adding !important to that CSS rule

2) This will be fixed on v1.2 because its a bug

Thank you – I ended up adding Avenir to the skin css via ftp, understand that may be overwritten with updates so will add the code as you suggest also. I’ll look forward to v1.2 for the footer fix, thanks.

Hi,

I loaded the theme but I have some questions about things I want as showed in the live preview.

1. How can I change the footer? 2. I miss the Contact Page (i have only the Contact form) 3. Where can I find the Pricing Tabel Page? 4. What is the minium format for the photo’s? 5. How can I change between the elements?

I have to read the documentation in a role above the page from about 5cm high..

Can you help me to find the answers?

regards Maureen

Laborator

Hi Maureen,

1) To change footer go to Silicon > Footer and you have these options: http://cl.ly/N4lp then click Save Changes

2) If in order to setup contact page you should choose “Contact” template, then click Update/Publish, after that you will se Map settings meta box, there you give these settings (depending on your address) http://cl.ly/N3Ul

3) Pricing table can be found on Layout Builder, this icon: http://cl.ly/N4vT

4) It is recommended that photo on blog to be higher than 600 pixels on width at any height, on portfolio page, images are preferred to be 940px by width at any height. For the wideslider, the recomended size is 1280 (or 1400) pixels by width at any height

5) The 5th question I cannot understand what are you trying to do.

Hi, first and foremost, this theme is fabulous. You should be labeled as an elite author. Second, my question: When using the Fade Slider, how can I get the text in my page to appear above the fade slider instead of below? I’m currently using the Fade Slider page template, and the text automatically appears below the slider. Thank you.
