Hi,

I would like to use a second instance (a copy) of this template for mobile, using the jtouch plugin to switch to it on the fly. It seems that I can’t do this because switching plugin needs a template with a different name.

Is there some place that I can change the template name (not the style name) so that it will be recognized by the switch?

Thanks,

Aron

I have downloaded and installed Joomla 2.5 Upon installing Joomla I loaded black Studio template. So I’m not using the quick install package.

I noticed your online demo doesn’t load the Joomla.css files and that is the way it should be i guess. The problem I have it’s loading the joomla.css file. I thought I could go into the index.php file and remove the line of code loading joomla.css Also noticed some css files are loaded as .php files?

$gantry->addStyles(array(‘template.css’,’joomla.css’,’style.css’,’NSP-GK4.css’,’k2.css’));

It’s still loads joomla.css after removing it.

I’m a bit confused about the joomla.css file, could you clear it up for me?

Thanks, Richard

Hello Richard!

Of course my demo also loads joomla.css file ;), this stylesheet contain styles for all default Joomla elements and basic interface elements so it must be loaded. Joomla.css file is loading from two places, framework – which contains basic Joomla styling, and from template which overrides defaults, and adds all my styles to joomla core elements.

On demo website I have options GantryCache and GantryGzipper enabled in advanced settings of template, thanks to this all javascript files and css stylesheets used by template and framework are combined, and zipped to optimize file sizes and server requests which results in faster loading speed. Additionally all this files are cached and served from cache, this the reason why you will see loading of php file instead of typical css or js. Cache also optimize performance.

Both options should be enabled if you want to optimize your website loading speed, but ONLY , when you finish making customization of template, otherwise, changes applied to css styles are not visible till the time when cache files are refreshed.

Response to Tomek:

One example is using the templates title styles you created. I’ve created a custom jQuery application using a joomla article for the HTML & external file for .js. If I create a path .module-title .title in the joomla article using similar structure as would be found inspecting a module, the blackstudio16 joomla.css will take priority and overwrite the style.

Only way I know to cure the problem, is to add !important to the class being affected in your css file.

I’m at a stage now I’m trying to fine tune the SEO ….. like H1 H2 H3 H4 etc…..but I don’t want to blot/complicate the css.

Any more ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Richard

7Studio

Hello Richard,

if you want to replicate this style in Joomla aritcle you should to use exactly same, not similar structure in Joomla article.

Also this classes – .module-title h2.title and .module-title h2.title span are styled in template.css file not in joomla.css.

You sohuld to use:
<div class="module-title">
<h2 class="title"><span>First word</span>Rest of title</h2>
</div>

SEO elements in template shouldn’t be reorganized as long as you really need it, H1 heading should be used only once, and by defalut it should be used in title banner module, H2 are assigned to article headings, h3 to less important Joomla interface elements and so on.. The only thing which you can reconsider is changing module tilte from h2, but this are also important elelments this the reason why they have H2 heading tag.

Btw, while using custom jQuery scripts please remeber to load library and scripts in no-conflict mode.

Hi,

To be honest. I didn’t buy the template, my friend did it. But i’m building his website.

In the original template there’s a button “read more” in the DJ-Image slider. Is there a sort of code to get this same button? I could’nt find it. Hope you van help me?

Here’s the website http:/www.socialmediareclame.com/

Kevin

7Studio

Hello Kevin,

so please ask questions from your friend account. Regarding to your question, in DJ Image Slider module settings make sure that “Show readmore” option is set to yes, also make sure that in slide settings you chose a link type (url, article or menu item for a slide link), otherwise read more button would not appear in slide.

I am thinking of buying this theme but need to know if it has compatibility with the Chronoforms extension or even needs it?

Regards

Mark

7Studio

Hi Mark, no template doesn’t need ChronoForms. Default contact component is used in contact forms. If you would like to use component to create extended forms, then yes, chronoforms should work without any problems.

Thank you for your interest.

Does this template have facilities for registered users to upload files? We’re currently using ChronoForms to do this. Sorry, should have mentioned this before.

Regards

Mark

7Studio

Hello Mark,

BlackStudios it is a template, visual layer for Joomla, all this kind of functionalities depends on Joomla core functions, or additional extensions, not template. If you was using chronoforms and you will install my template it will work in exactly same way.

Hi Tomek,

Just a quick question, are you upgrading this template to work with 3.00 and 3.5 as all my site visitors always ask whos template it is …

Cheers

gary

7Studio

Hello Gary,

for now I don’t have plans to convert BlackStudios, as Joomla 2.5 is a long term support version and it will be supported at least until 2014 Please take a look at this article.

Also please note that in Joomla 3.X whole markup for frontend and backend has been changed completly, (because of integrating Twitter Bootstrap as JUI ) which means that template will need to be rewritten from ground up especially for versions 3.x .

Hi. On the Joomla stuff user links user login page, there is a lot of blank space after the footer menu. I am working on a local server but you can also see it on your demo on the black version. I am using the white version and not using the scroll to top button. Can you tell me how to make sure there is no space after the footer? It’s only happening on the Joomla login, lost password pages.

I hope this makes sense since I’m new to Joomla. I really love this template, by the way!

7Studio

Hello and first of all thank you for your kind words!

This behaviour is natural, because there is only few elements to display, main content area has a really small height, because of this, footer is displayed in layout a little higher. There are two ways how to avoid this. First you can publish some additional informations in modules which will be assigned to this page, for example latest news, instructions for users about accounts … Or if you don’t need any other informations there, you can set a minimum height of content area.

Please try to add following code at the end of template.css file:

#rt-main { min-height: 350px; }

In this case, content area should always have a minimum height, even if there is only few elements like on pages mentioned by you. I suggest first option, as minimum height is not always desired ;)

Hi Tomek,

I moved my site from local to live and am getting an error when I try to go to template manager…styles. The error reads 500 – An error has occurred. XML file did not load. Return to control panel.

Everything else seems to be working perfectly. Can you advise on what I need to do? Thanks.

7Studio

Hello,

probably some files wasn’t copied or are corrupted, please make sure that all files was moved correctly. Also please make sure that paths in configuration.php file are changed for correct ones. If you want to move your website from localhost to online server Akeeba Backup extension can help you move your site correctly.

Hello,

I’ve purchased and installed your template, but I can’t see any blogs. The links go to a blank page. The featured articles show at the bottom, but clicking on “read more” sends the user to a blank page. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The site address is: http://http://www.jlflinn.com/reticle/

7Studio

Hello Jonny and thank you for your purchase.

Blank page means php server errors, it can be caused by many different things from server misconfiguration to damaged files. If that is not a problem, please send me login details to Joomla admin panel (via contact form which can be found on my profile page on ThemeFoerst), I will try to help.

Hi,

I’ve bought and installed the great looking template on my freshly installed website recently but I’am having some major performance issues. The site takes about a minute to load any page. If i switch to a pre-installed template the site loads in less than a second. I can’t even check the websites performance on sites like pingdom.com because they time out after 60 seconds. Maybe helpfull: I installed the website and template prior to having a namechange for the domain. Is maybe a template-related plugin stopping the loading progress?? The website is http://www.shadaloo.eu

7Studio

Hello, there could be some conflicts between Gantry Framework and other extensions used on your website or your server does not meet minimum requirements to run Gantry. There is many possibilities here, please send me login details to your Joomla admin panel and I will try to check what can cause problems on your website.

Hi 7Studio, I am using your template , its very Nice, but I want to add and delete some option from the registration form. The registration form Has to be simple. I Just need. Full name – Phone number - Email Address – (with Verification) Username - Password- Confirm Password - Zip Code -

7Studio

Hello,

Template is not related to Joomla registration form in any way, it provides only style for elements. If you want to extend or change registration form you can use Joomla user profile plugin – which extends Joomla registration process.

Few steps: 1. If you are using QuickStart package – please go to components – K2 – from toolbar on right side choose “parameters” and here in options make sure to disable K2 user profile .

Now go to extensions – plugin manager – user profile plugin – please open plugin for edit, in right side you can choose additional fields for registration form, you can add phone number or zip code if you need it. Make sure to enable plugin and save it.

Regarding to your previous question, I can help you add registration button after login button but as I mentioned in mail I need to know which version of template you have installed – white or black, or you can just add registration menu item to any menu in Joomla.

Hello YVes and thank you for purchase.

Unfortunately this is server related problem, there is some misconfiguration and this caused problems with files/folders permissions on your server.

You should to contact your hosting provider, give all this informations and ask for a help. Your hosting company should solve this problem for You, this the best place to ask for a help in this case.

Hi, I just purchased your theme, and would like to make a custom.css sheet so I don’t overwrite core files when we upgrade. How should I do that with your theme? Thanks! Janet

7Studio

Hello Janet and first of all thank you for your purchase.

Regarding to your question, please create your custom.css file inside /css directory in template. Now please open index.php file, in first lines you will find array, which loads css styles,

$gantry->addStyles(array('template.css', ...

please add your css file here, example line will look like:

$gantry->addStyles(array('template.css','joomla.css','style.css','NSP-GK4.css','k2.css','custom.css'));
