Hello Aislin, Slider Revolution causes a fatal error. How could I fix this?

“Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error. Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function create_function() in XXX/wp-content/plugins/revslider/includes/framework/functions-wordpress.class.php:258 Stack trace: #0 XXX/wp-content/plugins/revslider/revslider.php(87): RevSliderFunctionsWP::registerWidget(‘RevSliderWidget’) #1 XXX/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php(2286): include_once(’/customers/6/b/...’) #2 XXX/wp-admin/plugins.php(191): plugin_sandbox_scrape(‘revslider/revsl…’) #3 {main} thrown in XXX/wp-content/plugins/revslider/includes/framework/functions-wordpress.class.php on line 258”

Hi, please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com with PHP and WP versions you are using as well as your purchase code. Thanks.

Slider Revolution is not working and waiting for support.

Hello, we have replied to your email.


I have problems with the latest update of the theme.

When I update the entire theme on my website, the “Layout Blocks” disappear, such as Header, Footer, Mobile Header, etc.. All the configuration of “Theme Options” also disappears.

Is there a way that I can update the theme from Version 1.3.2 to Version 2.2.0 without losing anything?

Do you have any solution to this problem, any tutorial, etc …?

Note: Petal version installed: v1.3.2 – WordPress version Installed: v5.2.2

Thank you!

Hello, we will look into this ASAP.

Hi, please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com so we can provide detailed instructions.

I’m also having an issue with the screen going blank when I activate the Petal theme. I’m feeling very disappointed with my purchase. It has been a much more challenging install than other themes I have used in the past. I’ve installed quite a few WP themes over the years and this one has been more of a challenge than most. I changed text in the site identity and the site disappeared into a blank white page. Other themes work fine if I activate them, but Petal seems to be broken and in conflict with the Petal plugin.

I have heard back from their support – so am hopeful that my initial enthusiasm for the theme will be merited. I will post my experience here.

the support at Aislin are very attentive. I’m still sorting out a basic understanding of the theme – I am finding it a little challenging but it is not that there is anything wrong with the theme or the developers – they seem to be pretty awesome.

Thanks, we are here to help.


I’m using Polylang to make my website multilingual and I have doubts about some things:

1) I can’t translate Mega Menus and Layouts Blocks…

When I create a mega menu or a Layout Block it only remains in the default language and I don’t see options to translate the next language.

Can you help me solve this as soon as possible?

Thank you!

Hello, please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com with more details. Also please include your purchase code in the email.

Hello… Where can I find the Slider Revolution Demo Content? https://www.raumzeit-experten.de/

Hello, please follow our installation video https://youtu.be/uQAZf1GRFro?t=147 Sliders are located in assets folder in the main package you downloaded from ThemeForest.

Hi, I changed the footer and just need 3 social media profiles. But it is not centered. I see in the template how 5 icons look centered… How can I do that but just with 3? (I can’t find it anywhere). Thanks!

Hello, please send a link to your site to our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com so we may inspect the issue.

I uploaded a new slider image but now I can’t see the main menu headlings. is there a way to set the background colour for the header to white that isn’t somehow overruled by the slider pic? I found a setting for this but it doesn’t seem to be working

I resolved this by going to Layout Boxes and changing the background on the header box.

Hi there, got a few pre buy questions:

1- Does the theme comes with chil theme or does it supports it? 2- On project pages, how does one uploads images? Is a custom ctp with custom field for images?

Thx in advance

Hello, thank you for your interest in our theme.

1. Yes, child theme is included and you can use it for theme customizations.

2. Project is a CPT and has a featured image which is used in project listings. Inside single project, WPBakery Page Builder addon is used for galleries.


I need a miltilanguage plugin that is compatible with Petal Theme. I tried using the qTranslate-X Plugin but it doesn’t work. I don’t think it’s compatible with Layout Blocks and Mega Menus.

What solution do you recommend me for a multilingual site? And that it is compatible with Petal Theme

Thank you!

Hi, we recommend WPML plugin.

Hi, could you help me to change the ‘Home’ text of the breadcrumb, can I override a function in the functions.php? or is it possible from somewhere else? Thank you.


Activate the child theme. Add this to child theme functions.php:
//change breadcrumb labels
function custom_breadcrumb_trail_args($args) {

    $args['labels']['home'] = 'Holla';
    return $args;
add_filter('breadcrumb_trail_args', 'custom_breadcrumb_trail_args');

Thanks for the quick reply. I have one more question. On the mobile site I see that a “petal_options_style.css” which is in the uploads folder is being used. How is this generated and from where can I change the value of the body{font-size} that is has?

Please change the body font size in Admin/Theme Options/Body it will be reflected there. Please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com for any further questions.

How can you change the Quick Sidebar tigger hamburger icon to text?

Hello, the only way would be to use custom css. Please paste this to Theme Options/Styling/Custom CSS:

.wh-quick-sidebar-toggler i { display: none; } .wh-quick-sidebar-toggler:before { content: “Your text”; }

For any further questions please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com

Hello Aislin, this looks a good theme – I just have a few pre-sale questions:

1. From the Home Page Classic – can I link from the 3 column boxes [when I click on a box[ directly to a blog post or Page instead of a graphic or project page?

2. I have the same question as above about the Portfolio Page – can I link to Blog posts and/or Pages.

3. Can the landing page be a Portfolio Page [the first page that a visitor sees]?

4. When the pages are loading there is a blue colour – can I change the blue to another colour?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Aiden,

Ok, I had a look again and I think I could use the Project pages also for text articles just like I would have used posts. Could tell me is the Project Pages as SEO optimised?

Another question if you don’t mind: Di I need any special server requirements? For example: Special server settings for uploading the demo content or using the content manager?

Thank you in advance,

We recommend using Yoast SEO plugin. Please review the server requirements here http://aislinthemes.com/faq/#requirements

One presale question. Can the portfolio post type be renamed to for eg : works? instead of projects.

Hello, thank you for your interest in our theme. Yes, that is possible.

By setting or theme file editing? Need to change for each update?

You can use a filter from a child theme to change the display name and a slug.

Hello. Where is the best place to add <head> code like Google Anaylictics script, favicon code, etc? Thank you.

Hello, this is how to add a favicon https://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Favicon#WordPress_Version_4.3_or_later For Google analytics please use one of the free plugins. For any further questions please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com

Hello there! Thanks for a great theme with Visual Composer! How can I make a different sticky/header for scrolling. Would like to have a different logo or no logo on scroll in the sticky header area? Thank you.

Hello, thank you for using our theme. Alternative sticky logo can be set in Theme Options/Header/Sticky Header.

The only image option under this area is background image, which will not replace the logo. Do you have another option or is there another setting?

Please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com with the link to your site.

Good theme!

Hello, No Petal is not discounted.

Hallo, can you please send me the link where i can Download the last Visual Composer version ?

Hello, update the theme, the latest version is included.

Hi, how to remove the item count in the portfolio menu?

If you are referring to item count in the portfolio filter category, that can only be done programatically. Please contact our support at aislin.dk@gmail.com for instructions.
