    Hello ,

    Facing issue with overlapping – menu over logo in 10 & 12 inch screen .
    Looks like a theme bug . Kindly fix


    Looking forward to get the “Bug Safari browsers throw a js error with cookie consent” fix. When is 4.6.4 planned to go live?



    We are still working over testing all the functionality before we push an update. We usually do not share dates because something might come up and we delay the release.

    Best regards,


    Is the Safari bug the same issue as google maps not working on Mac iOS devices?


    @laptophobo, I hope so!


    hm – what about:

    P.S.: Please do not report issues here, instead start a new thread.



    Hi Guenni007,

    You know how it is with some people :)

    Best regards,



    this is Jurek from Sott-Media. The current bugfix for the consent the javascript error still is not working in Safari.

    Instead you should change avia-snippet-cookieconsent.js in the following way in line 627 following:

    		function check_doNotTrack()
    			if( window.doNotTrack || navigator.doNotTrack || navigator.msDoNotTrack || 'undefined' != typeof window.external && 'msTrackingProtectionEnabled' in window.external ) 

    Added is ‘undefined’ != typeof window.external &&.

    The object window.external does not exist at all in Safari’s javascript. It is a good idea in general to always check for mainobject-existence when it comes to window. or navigator..

    Here is a reference how to properly read Safari no-track setting, in case you want to add it then:

    Hi oceaneokio,

    Please start a separate thread, describe your issue there and give us a link to your website.

    Best regards,


    Can we please get a better changelog management. 4.6.4 is available but the changelog still does not show the changes for 4.6.4:

    In this threads opening post you promise to post upcoming changes for 4.6.4. but you never did.

    The version.txt file in the full-download zip at themeforest is version 4.6.3.

    Updating without knowing what has changed is like playing russian roulette.

    Please get your changelog / upcoming changes workflow fixed.

    Sadly it seems responsive options did not get an extra screen width toggle with 1024px (iPad)
    It is really hard to optimize responsive design for iPads without that…
    Can some moderator give any estimate time schedule for this to come?


    Hi @mensmaximus,

    Enfold 4.6.4 is not released yet. We are planning to release it in a week or so. Saturday update on ThemeForest was to activate Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and not an actual update on theme files. We will update changelog as soon as new version is available :)

    Best regards,


    Well, Envato should send another mail “Sorry, we messed up. Here is 100USD credit as apology.” :D


    Hi Milan,

    I doubt that they will do that, but it would have been nice :D

    Best regards,


    Can we get an update, please?


    Safari not showing google maps.
    Icons missing after the lates wordpress update


    Instagram error in widget



    Missing icons in WP 5.3.1:

    Please update enfold\framework\php\function-set-avia-frontend.php


    Do not forget to make a backup of the original file for fallback and clear server and browser cache.

    For the others please open an own topic and provide backend access and link to the pages.

    Best regards,


    Confirming fix works for Missing icons in WP 5.3.1.
    Thank you Günter!


    Hi Todd,

    Great, I’m glad that it’s working and thanks for confirming. This fix will be included in the next release of the theme.

    Best regards,


    And when will be available the next release of the theme with this fix?



    I’m sorry for my ignorance, but how do I do that? I have the same problem with social icons.



    Hi Guys, thank you for issuing the temporary fix for social icons.

    The fix for the social icons does not work if you place the shortcode into a widget area.

    Can you look into this?
    I normally place the social icon shortcode into widgets to remove the need for plugins that do the same function. This affects several of my websites. Luckily I have only updated one of them to the latest WordPress version. Very glad I waited!

    WORKAROUND: If you change the shortcode setting to open in same window it works. So something is wrong with the CSS when you add open in new window in the icon shortcode.
