Koev may I say that you do beautiful work as both themes are unique and different. Thanks again for getting such quick responses back to us.

Will be waiting for answers left on Shelves dealing with if there is a cost on upgrades? This is a problem we have now need to upgrade OC and when we did theme broke and cannot reach theme builder. So we want to make sure moving forward there is no issue.

One quick question if we wanted to use Shelves but wanted the news mod and the custom footer of of this one is that possible? OR, if we wanted the tool tips of shelves with this one is that possible?

Thanks again for building some beautiful themes and will be waiting for your reply!

Hello WorldPrayr,

Thank you for your kind words. Now on the questions:

As I said in Shelves comments, once purchased the theme, you have unlimited access to any update/upgrade for this theme. No additional charges! Ever! The only thing you would need to do is wait until the theme update is released and not upgrade the store before this release, because there is a big chance the new OC would have compatibility issues with older versions.

Using the news module on Shelves is not impossible, but some adaptation/modifications would be required. it wouldn’t be really simple and the price for such adaptation would exceed the price of the theme by far. I am not sure it would worth it. However, it is your decision and if you need this, just let me know and I’ll give you a quote.

The custom footer of BigOne is the same story – basically everything is possible, but that would require some serious modifications.

What do you call “tooltips” in shelves? Could you give me an example? The product listing “flying” info box or just tooltips? If you meant the second option, this theme is already tooltip ready and adding simple tooltips is quite easy. If you meant the first option – same rule applies – everything is possible but wouldn’t be an easy-fix.

Should you need more information, just let me know.

Best regards, Dimitar Koev

Hi, is it possible to have the “groupon style counter offer” that appear on mouse over special to be always open? thanks

theAlThemist

Hello venturenet,

it is possible, but some serious modifications would be required in template structure (there is no room for it at the moment), the CSS and JS

  • Bought between 50 and 99 items

Thanks for your quick reply Koev. 3 more questions: 1/ in Groupon style: instead of number of products purchased can I have number of items left? 2/ is it possible to keep the navigation on the left side always open? 3/ how hard would it be to have back the navigation horizontal as default oc template? 4/ instead of compare button can i have share or like facebook?

thanks

theAlThemist

Hello venturenet,

all this is possible, but wouldn’t be an easy fix. A serious modification would be required and if you don’t have the knowledge and experience to do it by yourslef, the price for such a modification would exceed the price of the theme by far which would eventually make using a theme unreasonable.

As for the share/like buttons, it can’t be made on product listing. the current OpenCart system just doesn’t allow this. You can only have these features on single pages like product, news, information.

  • Bought between 50 and 99 items
  • Has been a member for 4-5 years

ok… How about just this one then: in Groupon style: instead of number of products purchased can I have number of items left?

theAlThemist

Yes, it can be done if you have moderate PHP and CSS skills.

Hello Koev, Nice work man, just tell me, this theme is compatible with http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=3621&filter_username=Xsecrets I want to clarify, tell me for both (Thenderbolt & Bigone) Regards,

theAlThemist

Hello omranmirza,

this looks like a standalone module that doesn’t replace core files so it should work without a problem. You would need to check with the extension developer which core files are altered if any. If there are no changes in /controller/product/product.php and controller/product/category.php it shouldn’t be a problem.

Is there an easy way to disable the image zooming when mousing over in the category & home page views?

Also the kwiki or whatever its called sliders are not working in FF

theAlThemist

Hello canadapleco,

yes it is possible and relatively easy to disable the zoom effect on products listings if you have moderate PHP /HTML/CSS skills and knowledge. Send me an e-mail and I’ll give you instructions OR quote if you can’t do it by yourself.

As for the kwicks slider – it definitely works in FF. The whole theme was built on FF and than tested and optimized for other browsers. When sending e-mail for the zoom effect send me a link to your store to check the kwicks and why they are not functioning for you.

Filin Purchased

Hi Koev. Can you add a price display when you hover on the item?

theAlThemist

Hello Filin,

it is not impossible, but generally – there is no enough space for this. You would need to either hide the product name or something else.

Default-user
Filin Purchased

you can do it configurable parameter? and add +Share button to product page?

On category page not displayed image “emptypic” when image is missing

Default-user
Filin Purchased

also add ‘&subset=latin,latin-ext,cyrillic’ ?? the google font link

theAlThemist

I’ll add more share options on product page with the next update + some new options. However, the price to be visible or not can’t be made configurable parameter. That would make it too heavy to load with too many SQL connections for pages with many products and modules.

As for the missing category image replacement, that would be added too.

theAlThemist

Not every google font have subsets, and this would break the functionality.

Default-user
Filin Purchased

I tried with fonts that do not have the subsets and everything looked fine, but other languages ??are displayed correct.

can you add qr code image module? (like this: [img src=”http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chs=250×250&cht=qr&chld=L&chl=[?php url=”http://”.$_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’].$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’]; echo $url; ?]” alt=”Product QR Code” width=”150” height=”150”])

On the manufacturers page add, please, manufacturer logos.

theAlThemist

Hello Filin,

some fonts would display Cyrillic characters and some fonts wouldnt. You would need to check in Google Fonts which fonts support cyrillic. Also, keep in mind that your language files would need to be encoded with UTF -8.

Manufacturer images are not default OC feature and for now there are no plans for such extension of the default template.

As for the QR codes – you can use any of the banner modules. There is no need for a separate module.

Default-user
Filin Purchased

also on news page add image

on news module in validateForm should use mb_strlen, because strlen return length in bytes, not in symbols, so when use utf8 length more then actual. and length of title should be 64.

if image in product not selected, i have error in controller/product/category.php at line 216

Hello Filin,

thank you for your feedback. I’ll check this things and update the files if necessary.

Hi Koev. How to fix localisation for jQuery Countdown http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html ?

Hello sleepmansel,

you can follow the instructions on the developer’s site OR you can translate the strings inside the JS file if you only have one language.

Hey Koev,

Awesome theme! Finally something different in the opencart section.

Two questions for you:

1) Is there a way to customize the background color and text colors for the left banner ribbon menu? Black by default clashes with my branding. Everything else seems customizable in the theme edit module, just not that.

2) Would you be able to code in the option to add/modify dates on blog/news posts through your bigone news module in a future update? It’s a great module but without a date modification option, makes it hard to organize everything chronologically.

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello blakefisher,

thank you for your kind words. Find my answers below:

1. It is only possible if you replace the background image and make some CSS color changes at the moment. However, I am working on a theme update where this would be also adjustable with predefined styles for the ribbon backgrounds and color options for the links.

2. I am afraid this is not possible. You can’t have both automatic dates and custom dates. If they are custom, the news couldn’t be sorted.

Default-user

Regarding your comment about replacing the background image and making CSS color changes to the side ribbon, could you point me out towards what image file and lines of CSS code that I would need to modify?

I’d like to make those changes and am having some issues tracking down what specifically needs to be altered.

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello blakefisher,

1. The images you would need to change are
  • back_cat_menu.png
  • back_logo.png

2. The menu styles could be found in stylesheet.css lines 2120-2323. There are many styles that must be changed for the different menu states. I can’t just list them here. There are 203 lines of code.

Hi. I’m building my shop-site right now and are looking forward to announce it opened. But I’m stuck with two problems that I would like to fix first:

1. Some of the items that I’m going to sell is quite expensive and are custom build. So I would like to remove the “Add to cart”-button when the product is out of stock. Have bought the plugin “HideAddToCart” but this won’t work with BigOne. Is this function possible to build into BigOne, or can it be fixed in another way?

2. Can’t get the Facebook ID-link to work. This is a great function that has a great advantage within advertising. Have checked my facebook ID from several sites, and this should be correct. Get this error message on the frontpage: “The ID passed to the Like Box is not a Page.”

Thanks !!

Hello Kvakkus,

unfortunately it looks like you never purchased this theme or anything else here on ThemeForest. Could you please sign-in with the account used to purchase the theme and send your questions again?

Thank you!

I’ve got help from a friend to set up my site. He bought the template from you and installed it on my site. It’s no illegal download and had not been installed on more than my site. I do not have his login info, so hope you can answer my questions. K

theAlThemist

Hello Kvakkus,

no, it’s not illegal. However, support is offered to confirmed purchasers only. I am afraid you would need to get your friends log in details or ask him to send the message. With so many warez coppies of our theme, I hope you understand this is the only way.

Looks like we have quite a few comments up here and they all echo the same, quick response. Well after buying the template we can say not only quick reponse but quick follow throu, and thorough! This template is everything we expected and that goes for the vendor as well!

Beautiful out of the box template producted by a vendor who stands behind his work unlike other vendors we have had to deal with. Vendor went above and beyond resolving issues and even helping us with a minor modification getting rid of the placeholder for images.

You cannot go wrong with this template or vendor who has many other templates.

Thanks for all your help!

Btw, nice looking template!

theAlThemist

Hello newclear,

1. Is this a standalone module or vQmod? Most of the extensions and vQmods are built to work with the default theme structure. It could be probably adjusted to work this theme too but I would need to see how it’s made.

2. Is it a FB fanpage or profile page? The like box plugin only works with facebook pages – not profiles. If it’s built like a profile with friends instead of page with people who like it – it wouldn’t work.

Thanks for fast reply Koev.

1. This is a vQmod. Coul you try to see how much work it is making this work with BigOne, then tell me a price for the work needed to customize it?

2. I found out what the FB error was. It was a profile page and thats why it did not work.

Hello again Koev.

I found an error/bug in your template.

In the register files there are added a captcha module. But for this to work you must have chose something the customer needs to agree to..But what for those who dont use anything the customer has to agree on upon registration?

For now i had to put that to Terms and Service for buying..lol..

theAlThemist

Hello newclear,

1. I would need to see the vQmod XML file. Send me an e-mail and when I answer you’ll have my e-mail (I just don’t want to post it here – too many spam bots around).

2. It’s not a bug. It was made on purpose! As you probably know, OpenCart have some major problems with spam bots. This is just a security measure to ensure a human is trying to register and not a bot. However, every reputable shop should have Terms and Conditions, so I don’t think this is would be an issue. :) The improved antispam security is one of the major features of this theme.

Thanks for reply :-)

1. Im sending you an email now :-)

2. There should be a way to disabel it tho..lol.. I live in Norway and here in norway the Terms and Conditions are only used when they try to do a checkout, but its no biggy tho. It works this way as well, just had a really hard time trying to figure out what was wrong as i had put the agree box to nothing. So the captcha was not showing at all.

Instead if gave me an error that lead me to the line with the captcha.

Hi K,

Just purchased your theme, looks good, however I think I am still far from clean site. I have installed the theme on the latest version of OC. I am getting the following errors: Notice: Undefined variable: setting in

store/catalog/view/theme/BigOne/template/module/featured.tpl on line 12Notice: Undefined variable: setting in /home/linweb16/u//user/htdocs/store/catalog/view/theme/BigOne/template/module/featured.tpl on line 12

Please point in the right direction
