Hi Arlind, I got a Fatal Error page on site when trying to load Here is the whole error… Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 6927031 bytes) in /home/content/50/7424050/html/dafinwordpress/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 952

I contacted my hosting company GoDaddy and they placed and temporary fix by allocating more memory but said that it will run out of memory again and this will keep happening. They said every time the site loads it uses more memory… Any idea why this is happening?

Sure, use this custom CSS to remove the gray spacing

section.header_top {
display: none !important;

And for the spacing, use this css:

section.header_nav .logo.simple_nav .logo_image, section.header_nav .logo.mega_nav .logo_image {
padding: 10px 0 !important;

Hopefully it will work for you.


Worked perfect. Thank you!

Good to hear that!

Hello, I’m a great fan of this template, it’s wonderful! I’m trying to make it multi-lingual, but it looks like there are problems with the qtranslate plugin. Is there a solution? Should I try with another plugin you’ve tested? Thank you very much.

Hi teodorofrail, the supported plugin is WPML (premium) but you can try other free plugins such as Codestyling Localization for translating strings and more.



I am working on this template for a client and I am currently trying to load the demo content. This seems, unfortunately, to be a bit more tricky than expected.

I have managed to load and install: Theme Options, Media Files, Laborator Data Blocks and the following below. But I am not able to import things like; Pages, Media etc. If I want to do so, I get an error saying:

Warning: touch(): Unable to create file /webspace/01/40973/temp/admin-ajax.tmp because Disk quota exceeded in /webspace/01/40973/*/agstein/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 155

Warning: unlink(/webspace/01/40973/temp/admin-ajax.tmp): No such file or directory in /webspace/01/40973/*/agstein/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 500

Can you help me with that error?

Thank you!

Hi jasepo,

Its strange why this error is output to you! For more its something not related to Zinc files, based on this file which error is issued:


So I suggest you to try to install demo content into another host and see if it works for you. Most of user didn’t have any problem with it.


Hi Laborator. I’ve bought your theme and now I´m working with it, but I can´t find the “short code” button or Visual Composer. I share you a screenshot.


Hi obedms, we have updated the theme lately so make sure you update it and the visual composer too, and then take a look if it is activated or not, it should work. If you still occur problems with the theme feel free to ask.


Hello, Can you tell me the shortcode for Contact Form 7 on Contact 2 page? The email contact portion below map.

Thank you, Steve

You will need to create your own contact form with the Contact Form 7 and then use the generated shortcode from Contact Form 7


Great Thank you! For some reason social icons are not showing up in upper right?

Hi sreiley, hmm I don’t get for which social networks you’re talking, can you take a screenshot and highlight the demo of Zinc so it will be more clear for me.


I’m re-posting this because I did as you requested and didn’t get a response?

Problem with the VC. I have added Tabs in my page. But i can not display. And i have bought the newest VC. This problem has been fixed. But there will be problems with my theme. So i have to use the 4.22 version. Can you help me how to fix this problem? You can have a look at this page. I have added taps. But it does not display.

Hi ronyebike

We are going to release the new Zinc update with latest Visual Composer version. Because Zinc uses customized VC plugin and we include it on every update.


OK that will be nice . And i am waiting for your new update. May i ask when?

By tomorrow we will start work on three theme updates, so we hope the update will be ready during this week.


The WordPress backend, or more specifically Visual Composer that this theme comes with doesn’t work at all in our version of IE9.


Browser version: 5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E; InfoPath.3)

Hi jakobhejdenberg,

We are sorry for these issues with Visual Composer in IE9.

As you may know that Visual Composer is an external plugin included in Zinc theme and we are not responsible for the compatibility of this plugin. However we will update the theme with latest version of Visual Composer, and if it doesn’t work with IE9 again, its their responsibility.


Hi I just bought the zinc theme. I can’t change the skin, I have selected it in the theme options and saved it. It looks like it has been saved but it is not applied on the WP site. Even if I try a customised skin it is not applied.

Do any files on the server need to be readable or executable for this to work?

Actually – I have worked it out. I had to chmod some resources appropriately on the server. It is now working.

Hi paulmackinlay,

I was going to tell you to chmod, but you already did it. Great job!

Because skins are compiled to CSS thats why it will require to create/modify custom skin files.


Hi, I think search results page design is not very elegant, especially with pages in list Is is possible to modify the page according e.g. archive template without breaking theme code? Thanks.

Hi alexschneider,

I am sorry this was designed a year ago and we cannot change the search results design to “archive”. It would require custom work.


There is error on the several pages od demo, e.g. and others.

Please fix it.

Hi alexschneider

This was fixed,

We have forgotten to change one class name.

Thanks for reporting


Hi! A simple question… In my web I will use the portfolio… but only 1 image per project.

Is it possible to disable the field “Project Images”? And using “Featured image” option as in other posts. For my client would be more useful.

Thanks! ;)

how can I change the height of the menu bar? I found a CSS code you have posted, but that did not work for me.

When I scroll down, the menu bar squeezes. This is the size I want it to be also when I am at the top of the page. Now, I have alot white above and below the logo and the menu items.

Thanks for your help

Hi jasepo, e-mail me your login details and I’ll try to fix it.

Hi caritomateos,

I am not sure what exactly do you mean?


I really don’t understand what you’re saying, the link you posted works fine.



In the visual mode of the ‘Edit text Block’ I don’t see the mark up buttons. How this comes?



Hi Pieter,

I am not sure what you miss there, here is my screenshot how the WYSIWYG looks in the Edit Text Block:

To me looks with all controls and fine. I use v4.2.3


Hi Arlind,

I don’t see that WYSIWIG.

I’m using WordPress 3.9.1.


Send us a screenshot of your WYSIWYG, I want to know how it looks like.
