Hi

Ive bought your Abrax template. However I need it for Joomla 1.7. I thought itd come with 1.7 on it, but it comes with 1.5 or 1.6 Do you have an 1.7 version? Or how can I make it work in a 1.7?

Please help !

hogash

Hi there,

Sorry for my late answer i have been in a vacation this last week and now i’m back fully charged.

Did you started working on this template? If you didn’t i will send you the 1.7 updated version but if you started worked on this template and you already have built something on it i will guide you through the update process to 1.7 no worries.

Please let me know ok?

Thank you very much!

Thank you very much ! If you send me by email the instructions I will be able to follow you.

A couple of questions: I get a 500 error when I click on the comgantry component in teh admin area. Not sure what that component is and if its important. Also, how can I change the background of the top banner where the menu and logo are? If I change the background color from the admin area it changes the overall color in the website. However Im just trying to change the top one, but cannot finde the right code in css files

hogash

Hey there,

Please send me an email through my user’s page contact form to reply back.

Regarding the 500 error it’s just a gantry bug. All the options of it are in the Template manager > Abrax page. Somehow gantry is installed as a component when in fact gantry (on J16 +) it’s a library. So like i said no worries it will be soon fixed by gantry.

To change the background color of the header try to open templates/abrax/css/template.css and add there this rule (at the very bottom):
#rt-header .rt-container {background-color:#000000 !important;}
Change #000000 with your own wanted color.

Hope this helps!

Howdy ,,,,

RTL language support is available???

Thank you

hogash

Hi Kolioali,

Sorry for my late answer i have been in a vacation this last week and now i’m back fully charged.

I have enabled the gantry’s RTL support http://myfile.ro/abrax16/ but i can’t test it because i don’t have the browser set to RTL so i will kindly ask you to check it and tell me if it displays ok.

Let me know ok? Thank you very much!

Good evening, I have three problems I hope you can help me with: 1) i created the article ‘news’ with {loadposition} in it and gave it ‘test’ as its position in the news module. Then I put in the ‘main menu’ the entry ‘Home’ single article and associated it with the article ‘news’. The form is loaded but it has two problems: (a) if I click on any of the article in the module ‘news’ it only charges the main-body and not the whole page showing the chosen article. (b) the ‘loadposition’ allows me to show both the module and the article tytle, but I don’t want the latter to be there. I tried hiding it from the loaded article parameters but it doesn’t work. The solution is hiding it from setting, in ‘menu home’ but then any article loaded from the home page doesn’thave the tytle anymore. Same for all the patameters such as author, print icon etc

2) i wanted to add a module that could work ad a vertical Ad banner or a minigallery on the left side of every article without having to doing it manually to each article, I’ve been searchin on the web for a solution, but I douldn’t find any, can you help me?

3) is there any way to show the time in the home page?

Thank you and I’m sorry if I bothered

hogash

Hi Jecko,

Thank you very much for purchasing!

Let’s see:

1) a) Try going to Template Manager > Abrax. Here go to the tab called Advanced and look for the option called Menu-less pages. Select a menu item from here. This will add an automatic ItemID which will associate with the modules.

b) Yes, the basic solution is to go to the Menu item and from the right options to hide/show what you want. Beside this i really don’t know any method to hide it.

2) Hmm have you tried adding the module in the sidebar-a position having the menu assignment set to ‘show on all pages’ and then go to Abrax options and from the Layouts tab > Mainbody positions to set the sidebar-a to be on the left. Try this and tell me how it goes.

3) Have you tried modules such as this one? http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/core-enhancements/content-date-a-time/3296 . Install it and then place it only on homepage. Should work fine.

You are not bothering me at all i’m glad i can help :)

Have a great day,

Marius

Thanks,

hello! wondering how to change the color of the home page menu bar so that it matches with the rest of the pages?

Are you sure this question was not meant for the WordPress version ? You posted in Joomla version.

The K2 blog component is not compatible with Joomla 1.7 therefore it’s not showing up in the component list. Any suggestions? Recommendations for other compatible blogging components?

Thanks,

Hi Hogash, I have some problems I hope you can help me.

1- SOCIAL . In my site the social module is too fast. When you put the mouse on it displays the social buttons but when you try to put the mouse on social button the social menu disappears. By the way, could the social module stay always open to solve the problem? http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/

2- MENU . In the site i’ve made some internal menus. All the menus i’ve made the items appears vertical but in this menu the items appears horizontal. It could be because the items are external links? How can I solve that and put the items horizontal?http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/index.php/sala-de-prensa

3- BLOG . My blog page template http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/index.php/blog is very different of abrax blog example. I have a look to the documentation and I understand blog is set by K2 Component. Inside my joomla page when I choose components there aren’t K2 Component installed. ¿How can I have my blog similar to abrax?

4- CHANGE COLOURS . Hi, I know how to change theme colours in theme options but I want to know how to change the white central part .

Bests, Marta

hogash

Hi Marta,

Let’s see,

1) Add this rule at the very bottom of http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/libraries/gantry/css/gantry.css
#rt-header {position:relative; z-index:1; }

2) Go to Modules Manager, and open the module menu called Downloads. On the right side look for a field called Module class and it should have the class set to “footerMenu”. Remove it and the formatting should dissapear and the menu should be vertical.

3) Unfortunately K2 isn;t compatible with Joomla 1.6 and there isn;t any component like that one. There are some blog components on Joomla extension directory but they are paid from what i saw. Inside the editor of the article, try aligning the image to the left so that the text should be on the left side too, not that empty space.

4) This is tricky. Try this adding to your http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/libraries/gantry/css/gantry.css the same at the very bottom:
.rt-container {background:#ccc;}
#rt-bottom .rt-container, #rt-footer .rt-container {background:none;}
<pre>

Let me know how it works, ok?

Have a nice evening,

Hi, I tried your tricks in my issues.

1- I post the code and don’t happen anything. Then I tried to solution inside joomla in Social Module Seetings. Module Manager < Social media icons. In basic options I choose the option YES in Show a friendly link? Now the social is ok, the mouse goes perfect but there is a joomla watermark link. The link here is not nice, and the code solution doesn’t run. New Ideas?

2- PERFECT

3- I supose with blog modules I can configure something similar. I fave some questions about. For me, at the moment the most important is to know how to: 3.1- Fix the number of articles you can see in one blog page, and the posibility to read past articles. 3.2- Change the headlines text size of the blog.

4- Yes it works! But only covers the content part, two columns left and right still white.

5- NEW QUESTION – IMAGES At the moment I’m linking from flickr the images included in page. With exception (logo, image slider…) that I replace via ftp. I tried multimedia uploader in joomla at allways says error. Does’nt works. The question is: How I have to upload the image files on the website and which is the code to paste it in the articles.

Thanks for your instructions, bests, Marta

hogash

Hi Marta,

1) On what browser are you working? I have checked with bots Chrome & Firefox and it works great, could you try Ctrl+F5 (refresh the page clearing it’s cache)

3.1) To control how many articles to display, go to Main Menu, acces the Blog menu item, and here, look on the right side, 3rd tab (blog layout options) and you’ll see a field called “Leading Articles”, it’s better if you leave 0, and in the second field called “Intro Articles” place 5 or how many you want.

3.2) I see there’s a rule which is overriding the one that should be applied to the title. Please try this:

Open http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/libraries/gantry/css/joomla.css and around line 55 please delete this rule:
.component-content .title {width: auto;font-size: 38px;line-height: 1.1em; font-weight:400;}
Now, open http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/libraries/gantry/css/gantry.css and around line 58 you should see this rule:
h2.title {font-size: 26px;line-height: 1em; padding-bottom:15px; background:url(../images/bg-h.png) no-repeat left bottom; font-weight:400;}
As you can see it has a font-size declaration and also a line height. You can try ‘playing’ with the values until you find one that it’s best for you. 4) I understand now, please try this:
body {background: #ccc !important; }

5) Marta, please go to administrator, Site > System Information > Here go to the 3rd tab called Directory Permissions. All the folders listed needs to be green Writable. Are they like this or you have folders in red?

Tip:

Please add this rule to the gantry.css at the very bottom:
.TDB-tweet { margin-top: 20px; }

Have a great day,

Marius

Hi Hogash, all the solutions you give me works. I have two new questions, I hope the lasts two questions. Both are in HOME page.

1- Remove or change “Welcome to abrax template”.

2- Remove the three modules content-bottom-a, b and c. The gray comic bublles. I unpublished this modules form module manager but they still there.

Thanks in advance, Marta

PD: I see your new template ammon, It looks very nice and useful. Full of different modules. I hope this template will be available in wordpress and joomla version soon.

hogash

Hi Marta,

I’m glad they worked :)

Let’s see:

1) Go to Articles Manager > Welcome to Abrax

2) The 3 modules are positioned into content-bottom-a, content-bottom-b and content-bottom-c . Unpublish/delete them and they shouldn’t appear no more.

Regarding the Ammon template i already released it for Joomla, you can have a look here http://themeforest.net/item/ammon-template-for-joomla/669895 . On wordpress i will surely release it by the end of this week.

Thank you for your interest!

Hi Hogash,

1- I can’t find any article in article manager called “Abrax Template”. All Articles in the list are self created. I don’t know what happens.

2- Ok, I found the modules, I deleted and everithing is OK.

3- blog: I choose in article blog seetings to show creation date, publish date and others… But in the blog there aren’t any change. The dates don’t appear. http://s373612644.mialojamiento.es/index.php/blog
hogash

Hi Marta,

1) Try this, go to Main menu > Home – here look on the right side in the 4th tab called Page display options. There is a field called Browser page title. Hope this works!

3) Try this: Main Menu > Blog – again look on the right side, 4th tab – Article options. Play with the settings and see if they will display.

I downloaded the Abrax template 1.7.1 and for some reason can’t get it to upload? When I upload it simply stops uploading at a certain point and I’m given no error or confirmation inside the Joomla interface. I navigate to the template manager and it’s not there. Tried several times on different machines and no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

hogash

Hi Tim,

First of all thank you for purchasing my template!

The package i provided in the downloaded zip from themeforest is actually a pack of Joomla 1.7.1 & Gantry Framework & Abrax Template and all the modules and extensions you see on the demo preview. So basically the package is a clone of my demo preview.

Why this and not the classic way. This method would take a few minutes to get an exact clone of my demo preview. In the other case installing via Extension Manager, you should’ve also install modules, plugins, components, set them up etc etc, which would’ve taken much longer.

In order to install extract the contents of the Abrax 1.71 zip into the folder you want and create a new database (also look into the documentation).

If you don’t know how to install please send me an email via my user page (bottom right) and if it’s ok provide me with the ftp and access to mysql and i will install it for you, ok?

Have a nice evening,

Marius

Hi.. I am interested to take this template. You have really designed it beautifully with a lot of effort… However please let me know one thing…In the demo, a color selection preset is given…Will it be given in the main template..If yes its ok.. If no, can you please tell me how to include it the same way for my site..I really need that feature for the front end of my site…Thanks a lot

hogash

Hi there,

Yes it’s included, you can enable/disable the demo panel in backend, but i want to let you know it’s mostly for demo purposes, i mean it doesn’t store the colors you set. The styles apply only for that certain page where the visitor changed it.

Hope in a future purchase of yours! Thank you for your interest :)

Hi Marius,

I recently bought this template of yours, tried to follow the installation instructions but something went wrong none the less. I’m getting a 403 forbidden message when i try to visit my domain www.event-photographx.be

Can you tell me what to change to complete my joomla setup? I also sent you an email asking for your help just to make sure you get this.

thanks in advance!!

Grtz wouter

hogash

Hi Grtz,

Thank you very much for purchasing my template!!

Let’s see, did you got any error upon installation or this 403 error popped after install?

There might be some permissions error, do you have the folder permissions to 755 and files to 644?

Also an issue like this could be caused by not having all the files copied or a problem with the .htaccess file – do you have it like this: htaccess.txt or .htaccess?

Let me know ok, no worries we will solve this!

Have a really great day,

Marius

Default-user

Hi again

the permissions are set to either 755 or 666. I have the htacces.txt file

i now also get a 404 not found message. could it be a fault in the configuration.php?

I set it up on mamp first and everything was running smoothly, after uploading it to the hosts server it didin’t work anymore.

you can always reach me on my e-mail account too

Hi,

I’ve just purchased this amazing theme.

I want to know where is the favicon.ico for this theme. In case theres no favicon, where to put it.

Thanks,

hogash

Hey @xbastardas,

Thank you very much for purchasing!!

Try this, copy your favicon.png to templates/abrax/images/ folder and then open templates/abrax/index.php and inside the
<head> ... </head>
tags add this code:
<link href="<?php echo JURI::base().'templates/'.$this->template; ?>/images/favicon.png" rel="shortcut icon" />
When you will refresh the page, if no change at all try opening with another browser. Also let me know how it goes, ok?

Another question. In Joomla 1.7 version, wich kind of menu is used for the main menu? In the template menu is disabled and in modules I cannot find the main menu. I say this because I have 2 languages in the website and I don’t know how to translate the main menu.

Thanks,

hogash

Hey @xbastardas,

Sure, go to Modules Manager and look for DJ-Menu. This is the module that renders the menu.

To translate the main menu, go to Menu Manager and ‘duplicate’ the main menu and translate it. You can have a look here in this tutorial http://docs.joomla.org/Language_Switcher_Tutorial_for_Joomla_1.6

Hi Marius, Great template!!

Is there is a way to disable the color panel on the left? Thank you.

hogash

Hi Yiannis,

That version hasn’t built in an option to disable the small panel. You can disable it by editing templates/abrax/index.php

So what you should do:

1) Look in index.php around line 42 and remove this code: http://pastebin.com/G11UPEAb 2) Look around line 234 in index.php and remove this code: http://pastebin.com/B4THF18y

That’s about it, if you have problems please reply back ok?
