Visual Composer 4.7.4. update

Can may i ask newer version – 4.11.2.? I try to see if it works with Zinc. New wp version 4.5 – there are problems with VC (4.7.4)

Thank you for help!

Hi ainpoiz,

I’m sorry but we don’t support Zinc anymore, and we don’t plan to release an update.

So you should not update any plugins or Wordpress to the latest versions.

Visual Composer newer than 4.7.4 doesn’t work on Zinc.

Thank you for your understanding!

Kind regards,

Sad to hear that :( So then I’m open to new security risks and etc if I do not update WordPress. What would be my solutions if i want to use Zinc theme?

Hi ainpoiz,

I’m really sorry but Zinc has been released on October of 2013, and we are not supporting it anymore, because we have to produce other themes and we are a very small team of 3 people.

Hope for your understanding!

Kind regards,

Can you provide any instructions as to how we can update Visual Composer manually to the latest version? I purchased it separately, deleted the version packaged with the theme, and installed the stand alone version but it does not seem to work properly when done that way. It seems ridiculous that a site reliant on Visual Composer can’t use the latest version.

Hi debiasda,

I’m really sorry but we do not support this item anymore.

The best way is to keep the version of Visual Composer that is bundled with the theme.

Hope for your understanding!

Good Morning. Your theme is fantastic. Is it possible that only the latest 15 tweets are shown in the twitter bar ? Many thanks and best wishes Niels

Hi Niels,

Thank you so much for your kind words.

Yes you can change this, but twitter API does not allow more than 12 tweets to be fetched.

So in case you want to fetch 12 tweets open this file: wp-content/themes/zinc/tpls/widget-tweets.php on line 16 change this code:

$tweets = get_latest_tweets($twitter_username);

to

$tweets = get_latest_tweets($twitter_username, 12);

And save the file.

This should work for you. Note that, our theme stores a cache of tweets (up to 6 hours) so it may not be immediately show 12 tweets.


Best regards,
Arlind
