Hi, I would like to add in some credit card images to the sprite.png so they show up. I need to add in a few UK cards. Im going to put in a JCB card instead of the discover card and I need to add a total of 2 more cards maestro and another.

could I make the sprite bigger and add 2 more rows…? then i guess edit override.css and another template?

I cannot find the template where this is done even though i managed to turn on template hints.

Many thanks.

oh, I also read this from you.
If you have the currencies enabled in the Magento admin, then you need to retrieve rates. See: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/modules_reference/english/mage_adminhtml/system_currency/index 3. The credit card icons are shown in the footer, one page checkout, and multi-address checkout so the same template is shared between them. If you turn on Magento’s “template path hints” it’s easy to locate the file. You can edit this directly, but you’ll need to maintain your customization during updates then. An easier way (that @dannyweb suggested a few comments later) is to hide the icons you don’t need via CSS . Add this to override.css: .payment-icons-list .paypal, .payment-icons-list .discover { display:none; } Browser tools like Firebug and Web Inspector make it easier to see which CSS is applying and how you can rewrite it.
GravityDept

Yes, of course you can add icons to the sprite.png. The markup for the credit card icons is shared in multiple parts of the site. So it has its own template file here: ...gravdept/page/html/payment-icons.phtml

great thanks, any tips on what I could put into override.css to show an extra card. ? ;-)

GravityDept

The easiest way is to copy the structure used for the existing cards. Refer to base.css to see the uncompressed CSS that you can read.

Great, managed to do it. the sprite file now is a good bit bigger but its all working. Thanks.

GravityDept

There is a Mac app called ImageOptim that is excellent for compressing PNG images. All the Acumen assets are run through this, so after you’ve exported your changes it can really reduce the file size.

Hi, I want to add “brands slider” on the front page. Brands are the attribute from products. Can you give me guideline for this? Should I purchase extension. (If so, please recommend one for me) or modify featured slider somehow?

Thanks,

GravityDept

It’s probably best to create a new UI Widget that fits the needs of your content. Since this likely won’t change very often it’s probably easiest to just hardcode the images/links you need. You can re-use the jQuery plugin that is included with Acumen to create a new slider.

Hi!

How can we get the home icon back in the top navigation menu. For some reason it’s gone and we cannot get it back.

Thanks for any input!

GravityDept

Try refreshing your Magento cache.

Default-user

thx 4 your reply!

Cache is off, but refreshed just to make sure. Issue is still there. Any more tips?

GravityDept

Check to make sure the static block is setup properly. Or if you can insert other content see if that appears.

Default-user

There is only one static block right? (footer_links) Is there one missing then?

GravityDept

No, there are lots of static blocks if you choose to use them. See the documentation section “Snippets” and look for the nav snippets. If you skipped this part of the instructions that’s why the home icon won’t appear.

Hi GravityDept

How to add category list the text “special price” Example: http://demo.magentocommerce.com/catalog/category/view/s/ebooks/id/37/

Thanks

GravityDept

Edit the product. Set the “special price” field on the “Prices” tab.

suleymanguncu

Thanks but How to show text “special price” ?

GravityDept

Display it with CSS. The markup is already there, but it’s hidden. This is changing slightly in the next Acumen release, so more information is visible by default.

Hi I am trying to change the width of the menu colums, for menu items that have sub folders. (when you roll over a dropdow appears with more menu items) I notice the tag in my Nav After snippet is changed to on rendering. Causing the menu col to get a width I don’t want. How can I manipulate this?

GravityDept

I don’t know what you mean by “the tag in my Nav After snippet is changed to on rendering”. Please clarify and post a link to the site.

Hi,

I have noticed that when I am at a page different than Home page, I change the Language and I get various, weird product results which are different every time I change it.

Any recommendations, please?

http://jtroump.com/micro

GravityDept

It looks like filters are being applied when you change languages. I’m not sure why that is happening because I don’t see that behavior in my dev environment.

I’m 100% sure this is a bug of your theme.

Why don’t you have a language switcher in your demo to check it out?

Pretty same thing happens at your demo with the currency switcher: go to a product page; switch currency; it redirects to Women category page while it should only change the currency and stay at the same product page.

You really have to check this out and provide real support eventually. Every time I ask you for something, you give the same answer “It doesn’t do that in my site”.

If it really doesn’t, please, share your fixes with the rest of us who paid at least to have something working basically correctly.
GravityDept

“I’m 100% sure this is a bug of your theme.”

As the author of this code, I’m 100% sure it isn’t. The functionality implemented is identical to Magento’s core version. In Acumen’s language and currency switcher, there are only visual changes. None of the behavior or backend code was changed.

What I can tell you is both these switchers work perfectly in my dev environment, where block caching is disabled. After enabling block caching I can reproduce the bug you’ve noticed, which is also visible in Acumen’s public demo (where caching is enabled).

This is a Magento bug — not an Acumen bug — and it appears others have experienced it as well, but apparently never submitted a bug report: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/203804/

I suggest submitting a bug report to Magento, so you can keep track of this issue.

“Why don’t you have a language switcher in your demo to check it out?”

The public demo does not have a language switcher because (contrary to popular belief) translating a store is not simply pushing a button. It is a significant amount of work to translate all the demo content to another language. English is my native language. I speak Spanish and a small amount of Norwegian, but not well enough to do written translations accurately on my own.

Acumen implements Magento’s translation functions globally. I can test that they work, and that defined translation strings are replaced. It’s not necessary to show a fully translated demo, and I’m not interested in showing a half-assed version.

“You really have to check this out and provide real support eventually.”

What do you call the work I’m doing right now? I call it support. Free support! You might think about how valuable that really is before complaining about receiving it.

You’ve asked a lot of questions since purchasing, and I’ve answered every one of them. Support is not doing everything a buyer asks. It’s about helping buyers understand an issue so they can use our products better. Try to keep that in perspective.

Hi there, Just installed this excellent theme. Thank you for being such a conscientious developer. You’ve made my FURTHER development, to customize for my client, a WHOLE lot easier :-)

However, I’m having one little issue that I’ve not had in a Magento site before (that I can remember). I’m not finding where to enter the “Details” info within the product admin section. You know, the information that would go in the “Details” tab on the frontend? For some reason it’s just not there that I can see. Did I miss something in configuration (I’m sorry, my ADD sometimes causes this to happen).

Thanks in advance.

GravityDept

Glad to hear Acumen has made things easier for you. It was built with developers making their own customizations in mind. Be sure to post your site’s link here, when the project has launched.

The “Details” tab isn’t populated by a single field in the admin. It’s generated from all the extra product attributes, which you’ve created or specified to appear on the product view (ex: weight, manufacturer, materials, tech specs, etcs). These all get rendered into a table and inserted in the “Details” tab.

Default-user

Oh I see. Hmmmm…ok. That means I need to do a little customization in there. Thank you!

GravityDept

Basically you need to configure each attribute to be shown in the product listing, and make sure your products use those attributes.

GravityDept

Sorry, I can only tell you that a block named “checkout.cart” has an invalid type from that log entry. To solve this you’d need to know a lot more about your system (customizations, recent changes, extensions) and it might require getting a backend developer involved. As you can tell Magento can be cryptic and it’s not always clear exactly what is happening from the errors.

It seems to be working, the site, but the log is filled with that error. I’ve seen mention that block name should be changed to referenced name but I’m not comfortable doing that.

GravityDept

The best thing I can suggest is reverting your code to before the errors started appearing. Then test which edits cause the error to be logged.

How to add product details content into cms?

It’s now displays: No product details.

GravityDept

You need to create product attributes. The “details” table is generated automatically by Magento if these are configured to be shown on the product view.

Is this a wordpress theme?

GravityDept

No, it’s a Magento theme. Magento is the most widely used open-source eCommerce platform, and it’s backed by eBay/PayPal. Magento does for eCommerce what WordPress does for blogging.

http://www.magentocommerce.com/

The Magento Community edition (which Acumen is designed for) is 100% free. There is also Magento Enterprise, which is used by all kinds of companies like Nike, The North Face, and Angry Birds.

We have the theme installed, but can not see the left and right arrows on the home page ‘New Products’ and ‘Featured Products’ sliders. I think the navigation is there, but the script is hiding it.

When I add more than 2 products, it doesn’t show as one line, and the arrows for slide control still aren’t there

GravityDept

You need more than two products in each slider. The UI widgets are composed with re-usability in mind and share some of the same structural and initialization code. If you don’t feed in appropriate content for a slider to work though, they won’t.

Default-user

There are more than two in each at the moment and it doesn’t work. I’m using category 35 for featured products. Could it be that changing the number which is default 2 (highlighted X below) will work?

{{block type=”catalog/product_new” column_count=”X” label=”New Products” template=”gravdept/catalog/new-products-slider.phtml” }} {{block type=”catalog/product_list” category_id=”35” column_count=”X” label=”Featured Products” template=”gravdept/catalog/category-slider.phtml” }}
Default-user

I’ve managed to correct this thanks. I imported considerably more products and this has triggered it.

GravityDept

Anytime you change the contents of a “product list” Magento needs to reindex that list and refresh the block caching. Some actions trigger this automatically, but sometimes you have to do it manually. Otherwise the index won’t refresh until the cached version expires. This is a performance optimization technique of Magento to prevent querying the database on every request.

Great theme, but with changing the colors i have some troubles.

The borders of the drop down menu at: http://www.techhandel.nl/ are still blue, where can i change that blue border to orange, do you have a piece of code for me?

Thank you

You need to use rgba() notation. Some colors are HEX and others are rgba() to include transparency.

Hi, great theme all is working except I can’t seem to get the contact form to send an email. All other emails are sending correctly. I submit and the the “success” message, but never receive any email.

Any suggestions at to what the problem may be?

GravityDept

Did you configure the contact form in “System > Config > Contacts” inside the Magento admin? This needs to be done separately from setting up “Store Email Addresses”.

Hi there,

I need to edit the actual Google Analytics code, not just my analytics number. Can you please share the path to this file? Thanks!

GravityDept

It’s not customized in Acumen’s package. You’ll have to get the core file from …/base/default/template/googleanalytics/ga.phtml and move it into Acumen to customize it. Otherwise it will be overwritten when you update.

To learn how to locate template files, you should Google “magento template path hints”.

Hi,

Is it possible to place the search form next to logo?

I tried this in header.phtml:
Created an id “search” which only takes the float to left.
When logo div ends, I added <div id="search"><?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topSearch') ?></div>.
That doesn’t seems to work. It messes up the slider div. I didn’t make any changes in page.xml.

Any hint, please? http://jtroump.com/acumen/default/

GravityDept

You can use absolute positioning to move the whole search block within the header container.

The search input itself already has an ID=search so you can’t reuse this ID for another block. That will break things.
