hi brendan, any chance of an acumen forum on grav dept . com ? it will help build a small community where we can learn from more people than just yourself .. and make it easier to search for problems. maybe people could even upload some of their acumen modded code etc to share.

GravityDept

I have considered this previously, but it complicates things like purchase verification and it requires moderation. I’m building some internal tools to help me offer better support and communicate with buyers better. In the future I may look at tying a forum in.

Hi GravityDept

How to enable the left sidebar? – http://c1212.hizliresim.com/14/f/gvc36.png Note: I use the old version (Version 1.3.3)

Thanks

GravityDept

See the documentation section “Categories”. You have to set the category as an anchor. Then refresh the cache and indices. Magento will display the sidebar if there are enough products to filter.

Hello Gravity Dept,

How can i add the home button in the menu?

GravityDept

See the documentation section “Snippets” and look at the example code for “Snippet: Nav Before”. Just create that static block and copy/paste the code into the Magento admin.

Thank You!

But another problem showed up: I followed all the steps off the documentation but the home page shows more then two products by featured products.

You need at least 3 products in each product slider to generate a second slide. Otherwise there’s nothing to slide to and it doesn’t initialize correctly.

Hi,

I have removed “New Products” slider from the home page and I left “Featured Products” showing 4 products in a row.
I want this slider to show 12 products; however it shows only 9.
Is there a limit and how can I change it?

GravityDept

The “Featured Products” slider draws from a category. So it’s limit is the same as the default set for categories. You can raise this limit from the admin, but keep in mind it will affect category listings also.

OK, got it.

Thanks for the immediate responce.

Just one more question:
How can I change the subcategores included in main categories of my nav menu to show in one column instead of in-line?

Just like “Acumen Tour” in your demo.
GravityDept

This happens automatically if too many sub-categories exist. You can force all the menus to stack using this CSS:

#nav .cols-1 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-2 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-3 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-4 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-5 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-6 { width:150px; }
#nav .cols-7 { width:150px; }

#nav ul.level1,
#nav ul.level0 .view-all
    { display:none; }

HTML5 markup: scrubbed clean of bulk and infused with semantic power

what are the html5 elements do u use?please list it for us

thank u very much.

because i cannt find any html5 elements in it

GravityDept

The doctype is HTML5 because it’s the most compatible HTML version available, and it’s future-proofing for widgets/code that do use of HTML5’s new elements and APIs.

All elements (whether introduced in HTML 1, HTML 2, HTML 3, HTML 4, and HTML 5) are used semantically and Acumen rigorously improves Magento’s HTML code quality. This is what’s important, not whether an element is being used because it exists.

The new HTML5 elements (section, header, footer, aside, etc) can be used but they’re not required. In no way does this undermine the semantic value of every other element on the page.

The only relevant elements that are new are header/footer/section, and I chose not to replace their HTML4 equivalents in Acumen because this would add a script dependency for IE8. There isn’t a significant benefit to converting code that already validates with both doctypes.

so as you said only doctype ?

GravityDept

Using the HTML5 doctype provides the most tangible benefits. Acumen does use HTML5 form types and attributes as well.

Hi, I’ve just installed the acumen theme on http://www.greatparistours.com but can’t make the menu to load. I’ve created a category (with “Include in Navigation Menu” checked) and added a product there: http://www.greatparistours.com/gpt/walks

Any clues? Thanks!

GravityDept

Try refreshing the cache and indices. Also make sure the category is enabled/active.

Default-user

Thanks for your quick reply. Cache is disabled http://imm.io/PtVH, all data is indexed: http://imm.io/PtVk and the category is enabled: http://imm.io/PtW5.

Could it be something I haven’t set up during the installation?

GravityDept

Make sure it is not a root category you’re creating. See the screenshot in the documentation section “Categories”. The top-level categories in the nav are listed under the root category which is assigned to the store.

Default-user

Walks is not a root category, you can check its settings here: http://imm.io/Pvuz

And, following the instructions, I’ve set it the Root Category “Great Paris Tours” as the store root category: http://imm.io/Pvvs

Anything else I should check? Thanks!

GravityDept

Now I see. The problem is you’re using Magento 1.4.2.0, which Acumen 1.3.4 is not designed for. If you must continue using Magento 1.4.2.0 then Acumen 1.2.4 is the latest release you can use. See the changelog: http://acumen-magento.gravdept.com/tour/changelog/

Default-user

OK, we’ll upgrade Magento to 1.7.0.2. Thanks for your support.

GravityDept

Cheers!

Hi, Can I add a “add to cart” button for each product in grid view? Thanks

GravityDept

Yes, the markup for “add to cart” buttons is commented out in the template file. You can uncomment it to display them. See: /app/design/frontend/gravdept/acumen/template/catalog/product/list.phtml

Hello GravityDept, first of all want to wish you good last days of the year! From the beginning my store was to include downloads and I finally finished some Artist Agreements last weeks. But as in the post of lizschwartz here the ‘my downloadable products’ link for customer’s account was missing and is currently still not there. This is really needed; how can I fix this?

GravityDept

The functions related to downloadable products are disabled in Acumen because the vast majority of stores don’t use this functionality, and it’s confusing for their customers to see. Out of thousands of buyers you’re the third to enquire about downloadable product support, so implementing this has not been a priority.

You can edit the layout and template files to include this functionality, but keep in mind it’s not fully tested with Acumen’s other customizations. Since this affects less than 0.3% of all Acumen users, I need to focus on improvements that have a more universal impact.

I’m getting Purchase Order as an option for payment on the last panel at checkout. I’ve disabled the purchase order option under Payment Methods.

GravityDept

Make sure your changes to the config are for the correct website/store/storeView, and then refresh your cache and indices.

Hi, I really want to buy this template. But it would be nice if you change this template to a responsive template because a huge of people are using smart phone and tablet to shop now. If this template is a responsive one, I’ll buy it for sure. Thanks.

GravityDept

I’ve been working on responsive eCommerce (for Magento and clients running Magento) for almost a year now. See: http://gravitydept.com/blog/skinny-ties-and-responsive-ecommerce/

Good things come to those who wait :)

I see you’ve done a great job. I’ll wait for your responsive template.

I’m trying to put a category slider into a left column on a CMS page. It shows up fine but it must be the margin thing you point out in the directions. The main CMS content grid gets bounced underneath the left column. Structure is this: <div class="grid-block"> <h1>PAGE TITLE</h1> </div> <div class="grid"> <div class="grid_3"> <div> {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="5" column_count="1" label="MY LABEL" template="gravdept/catalog/category-slider.phtml" }} </div> </div> <div class="grid_8">CMS CONTENT</div> </div>
GravityDept

You’ll have to post a URL demonstrating the problem so I can examine the markup + CSS together.

I’ve put the slider in the body while I tried to figure it out so I don’t have a URL to show you. I will create one when I get the chance.

I’ve never used Paypal but it seemed like an easy addition until I tried it. Express brings you back to the site as it’s suppose to but when hitting the process order button it just reloads the page and no order gets placed. I’ve searched for an answer but nothing comes up. Any ideas?

GravityDept

You should recheck your credentials and ensure your PayPal account is active. You can also enable debugging / logging to see exactly what communication is happening between your server and PayPal.

Default-user
davidl Purchased

Everything is fine, the logs show no problems, paypal doesn’t see anything wrong except when it comes back to the our site the process order button doesn’t send that token back to paypal.

GravityDept

I just tested the Acumen demo with PayPal Express and it’s working. If you change anything on the review page (after PayPal returns the token), then Magento disables the “Order” button until you click “Update Order Data”. This is confusing but required because of the way Magento + PayPal are integrated. I always recommend stores use Authorize.net instead of PayPal because it is a significantly more streamlined checkout flow.

Default-user
davidl Purchased

We use Authorize.net, always have. Just trying to give customers more ways to buy. Nothing changed on the review page, I thought maybe something had to be changed or added, like a phone number, but it just reloads the page. Nothing on the server log either.

GravityDept

Your environment, configuration, and account are of course unique so I can’t say exactly what’s happening. A quick Google for “magento paypal problem” shows you’re far from alone experiencing PayPal issues though.

Best advice: don’t use PayPal Express with Magento. It’s simply not a good user experience and correcting it in Acumen would require rewriting/maintaining a major portion of the module’s core code, which isn’t feasible. Magento has to be the one to improve this.

In the meantime, don’t integrate something that will confuse users simply to offer another payment method. Nearly everyone has access to a credit/debit card.

To use Acumen simply as a catalogue, is it CSS to remove the Cart / Wishlist / Sign in / Register Section up-top? I’d like to be removed or simply as an email/phone#

Cheers,

GravityDept

You can hide some elements by CSS alone, but the sure-fire way is editing the template PHTML and layout XML files.

Hi gravityDept i have a problem whit the category slider. It shows more as 3 products, i cant scroll to left and right if you understand what i mean. I have used the orginal css for checking if thats the problem but no, the link is http://www.bambooo.nl

Thank you very much

GravityDept

This is an easy fix, but your account is not a verified purchaser. Unless you contact me via the account used to license Acumen I will not be able to provide support.
