Hi! First of all, thanks for this awesome theme! I already purchased it and want to start customizing. Main Problem is that the visual composer won’t insert anything. When I choose any type of content like “seperator with text” I can’t even press “save” nothing happens. When I now close the visual composer popup it warns me that all my changes are lost but they show up in the editor window. But when I update the post settings (saving) nothing is there anymore.

So I stuck on this. Would you be so kind and help me with that?

EDIT: WHAAAA, shame on me but maybe interesting for all others! As long as Visual Composer is a WYSIWYG-Editor you should not disable WYSIWYG-Editor in your profile settings. Now everything works fine ;-)

Your Silicon-Theme is one of the best useable Themes I’ve seen for now! Thumbs up!!

Hey taeglichanders, thank you for all of your compliments about the theme, we really appreciate them :).

Good that you managed to fix it by yourself.

Thanks again, Art.

heyy i want to make an client logo slideshow on my homepage but i can’t :-((

can you help me please?

Laborator

Hi eyupdmg, first add your clients logo from Silicon > Client logos then on the page you want to add them via the Visual Composer button you’ll have to select Client Logos block and then update the page, thats all you have to do.

Hope this helped you, Art.

Hello datainformation, as I see we have forgotten to make the contact labels translatable, by tomorrow we will send you the updated version on which you can translate them.

Thanks, Art.

Hi, i really like your theme :) but i have a few question, i want to use your theme in Persian language and i wonder to know how i can change the style sheet and language in your theme ? i mean it’s an option in theme option or i need to change the hard code for it, cuz i see it’s support RTL languages :) many thanks

Laborator

Hi mahariri, thank you for your kind comments, the main styles are available to change via the theme editor, but if you want more specific colors or something else you’ll have to do that on your own, there is a specific field that supports changing only the elements you want (Custom CSS).

Also all the theme strings are translatable, you can do the translation with a free plugin such as Codestyling Localisation or buy a premium plugin such as WPML.

Thanks, Art.

Default-user

I already have WPML but i didn’t get what you mean :) you know i’m using WordPress in my language and i want to know how your theme detect my language and also direction, you know i mean that is it auto detect or i need to specify any element ? you said that it’s RTL support, you got my problem ? ( also i usually don’t use custom CSS field )

for example the framwork called ” warp ” is auto detect and when the language is RTL it’s automatically get the rtl.css .

Hey,

your shortcodes are a bit unpretty. If I want more than one row of Featured Blocks, for example each row should display one category, then your script generates invalid HTML code, cause each time we get <div id="features_blocks">...</div>.

It’s not just the bad HTML Code, the depending javascript isn’t running correct (selector tries to catch the Element of ID #features_blocks)

Laborator

Hi medianist, after you’ve added the featured tabs from shortcodes use the Visual Composer to add another line of Featured Tabs, I’ve tested it and it’s working fine for me.

Thank you, Art.

Default-user

Hey, I’ve still the problem, that it’s impossible to show more than one feature tabs block on a page. When one row/category is added, all is fine. If I’m adding a second row with another category, the first doesn’t appear when clicking the arrows, but the second feature block controlls the first one….. ???

I added a wp e-commerce plugin so I have a shop. The shop is working okay, but when you click the add to cart button, there are no signs that the button has been clicked. It works, but it is hard for the user to know that it has worked. I asked someone about this and they said the following:

“Your problem is with the theme. More likely the CSS stuff. Focus on fixing the css for the notifications “div” https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16683640/Screenshots/2013-03-11_1557.png Check the arrow. The div is “under” the main page body. Your theme developer should be able to fix that,”

You can see the problem for yourself if you click www.nailsxo.com/products-page/ and try to add something to cart

Thanks for any help, Mark

markwhelan92,

Sorry for the delay as we were busy during these days.

I checked the preview page and I added this css and it seems to work fine, just tell me if this is Okay with you

#fancy_notification {
margin-top: 30px !important;
z-index: 1000 !important;
}
Add this to admin panel Silicon > Custom CSS and it will have effect.

I hope it helps you.

Hi Arlind,

We are very happy with the great theme you guys made. Now we are uploading content and would to change on the gallery page the text blocks on the left side.

See example: http://bitedirect.com/photo.png

The where, when and Caption we do not use so we don not fill in the form at in the backend however we would like to use the whole space for the description of the item. (see the blue block on the example photo) is there a easy way to do this?

Regards, Arjen

Laborator

Hello Arjen, we would like to thank you for all of your kind comments.

About the album description, I’m sorry but that feature isn’t available from the theme customizer.

Okay, we found a next issue! If we’re creating a few feature tabs categories and depending tabs, all works fine. BUT (!) If we reorder categories, rename some or would add a categorie, the system is rewriting the options to database with new ids and all dependings between tabs and thier categories are wrong!!

Laborator

Hi medianist,

Sorry for the delay as we were busy during these days.

Oh we didn’t noticed this, thanks for reporting this will be fixed fast and we will upload the new update.

You will get notified when the new update is ready via Admin panel if you have typed the Envato username/api key on options panel.

Hi, I bought the Silicon Theme from Theme Forest.

I tried to import the demo content (from the ‘extra’ folder), but a lot of failure messages appeared.

And the website stills the same, with no demo/sample content, everything empty.

Would you kindly and urgently help me?

Hi fillipomadella, we’ve also faced that kind of problem and we’re trying to fix it as it takes too much time to upload it. Could you please try adding it again and then after some minutes just stop it, it worked for me.

Hi! I bought the template past week, and installed almost all what I wanted, but I have issu with the portfolio thing. How can I have a 4 object portfolio with on my page like the preview one? My page is only showing 3 portfolio item per row. Thanks. Nessa

Hi Nessa,

Sorry for the delay as we were busy during these days.

Can I see a preview of your page? I dont know why this happens, maybe you have altered the CSS or something like this?

Awesome theme guys. Just a couple of questions – What css would I use to change the footer section colour to a custom colour? Also, I would like the header / navigation needs to be a but narrower, could I also use css to alter that? If so, what css code would I use?

Laborator

Hi jsdesign_com,

Sorry for the delay as we were busy during these days.

Yes buddy, if you want to change the footer colours just apply CSS from admin panel directly via Silicon > Custom CSS or open the file inside silicon/css folder called layout.css, both will have the same effect.

If you want to change the footer colour you should apply this CSS:

footer, footer.expanded {
 background: #yourbg;
}

footer .footer_bottom {
 background: #yourbg;
}

And for the header is the same trick, so you just need to change the padding of the menu, here is a sample:

header #site_header .logo_env .logo_txt {
 padding-bottom: 10px;
}

#site_header #site_menu .main_menu>li {
 padding-top: 30px;
}

I hope this helps you

Arlind

Thanks for that. I actually meant the bottom widget box background colour (I’m using the blue theme) I want to change the blue to a different colour. And the code for the header made no difference to the size :( With editing the css file, Do I edit the .css file or the less file? I find the css file very hard to read because there are no line breaks to make it legible.

Laborator

Hi buddy,

Can you send me a screenshot of which section exactly you want to change the color of.

The css file you need to modify is layout.css that file was created only for the site owners to put their own code, its a clear file.

If you can’t manage to change the settings email me the WP login so I can try to set it up.

Hi Almir,

Sorry for the delay buddy, we have been very busy these days.

Yes you can translate these strings, just open the

tpls/blog-readfull.php

On this file you have everything you need to translate.

Sorry again for the delay

Hi Art,

First of all, the theme is fantastic, congratulations! Second, I’ve aquestion:

In ‘Blog (Right Sidebar)’ the right Search widget is bigger than the other widgets (Categories, Recent Comments, etc)... Is there any place in code where I can fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Laborator

Hi again David,

Yes you can place the custom css to fix this issue, just go to

Silicon > Miscellaneous > Custom CSS Styling and apply the css

Would probably be:

.sidebar_entry #searchform #s {
width: YOURWIDTH px !important;
}

I hope this helps

Cheers

Arlind

iDavidDeSmet

Hi Arlind,

I tried your code but there wasn’t any visual change… It is still apearing a bit bigger, see the pic: http://i.imgur.com/hRHnyCd.png

The code I tried in Custom CSS Styling was:

[code] .sidebar_entry #searchform #s { width: 280px !important; } [/code]

I used 280px as a reference to the .five.columns

Any other idea?

Thanks in advance!

Laborator

Maybe there can be another script overwriting this numer, try to put this statement on wp-content/themes/silicon/css/layout.css (hardcoding, bottom of the file), and try to change the width to smaller to see if it is working properly.

I hope it will work for real now!

Arlind

iDavidDeSmet

Hi Arlind,

I did what you said but is sill has no effect. I’m not sure, but could it be the skin css that is overwriting it? I taked a look at it but is optimized/compressed, not read-friendly…

Could you provide them without optimization? So I can take a look at it and see if there is a .sidebar_entry #searchform #s overwriting the value.

Thanks again!

Hi,

i’ve just bought the theme. whats the right way to upload it to wordpress? is there a manual?

thanks, Maria

Laborator

Hi Maria,

You just go to Themes -> Upload new theme and then choose the silicon.zip under your downloaded package from themeforest, its easy to install. There you have also help and documentation inside the WordPress, just click on Silicon > Help (from the menu) or see video tutorials, check this page at the end:

http://laborator.co/view-theme/silicon/

And click video tutorials.

Thanks for purchasing this item!

Hi Maria,

I don’t know why Silicon has to cause this issue? Its this error what you get after installed Silicon? Try disabling Silicon theme, then check update page, and if this error happens again, I will see where is the problem, I need to log in to your wordpress admin panel.

I see it, my first theme upload didn’t include that part, or the side bars – files must have been missing.

Can I hide the arrows that navigate the tabs?

Thank you!

Laborator

Hi SSol,

I am sure that has been some errors on your server that you are not able to view that, I can see it on every installation!

If you want to hide navigation on features tabs just apply the following CSS to Custom CSS Style on Silicon options:

.features_blocks_nav {
 display: none !important;
}
}

I hope it works for you.

Hi again,

One quick question… I’m translating the po file but at first glance I couldn’t find the strings for the contact form (Name, Surname, Subject, Email, Message). Could you tell me where do you hard coded it? So I can manually change it… Or perhaps, even better, update it so it has the strings on the po file.

Thanks again,

Laborator

Hi iDavidDeSmet,

The field names are hardcoded I am sorry for this. If you want to change just open

inc/laborator_contact_form.php
<pre>

From line 38-42

This will have an effect I think so

Thanks for the purchase buddy

Hi, i’ve edited blocks-displayblogandsidebar.php to render the posts as the “LatestBlogPosts” shortcode (3 columns, small thumbs). It works, but how can i edit the blocks-displayblogandsidebar loop to show only 9 posts and not the default number of items? I’ve tried to set the $items_per_page = 9 but don’t works.

Thanks for your support.

Hi RiccardoP

Have you tried to change the number of posts to show on the page by metabox) like this example: http://cl.ly/NfDg

Hi Riccardo,

Try adding this code on blocks-displayblogandsidebar.php file right after the line 23
