which DB dumb i should use for the latest magento version?

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Latest version of magento is 1.9.1.0 for now so you should use dump with appropriate name: dump_for_magento_community_1910.sql.gz By the way, from now we provide support only via ticket system. Please send your further request through that form Don’t forget to provide your purchase code

Hello, Yes you can since this is default magento feature.

My God My God, this is the theme I was looking for.

Just two things.

1) Do you have Social login option available?

2) Can the revolution slider be used in the default demo without changing anything?

I think I am bugging you a lot. I request again to please answer my questions. I cannot afford to buy a theme without being 100% confidence that it has all or atleast 80% features that I need. Here I revise my questions :)

  • Is it theme Multistore ready?
  • Do you Countdown for products on sale?
  • Do you have payment gateway API already configured?
  • Do you have Shipping API already configured?
  • Do you have any home page builder in the Admin panel? I need to design the homepage without using any category, featured, new, recommended products that show up with their prices, add to cart, reviews options. You see,http://demo.meigeeteam.com/blacknwhite-magento-theme/wide_layout/ has three images below slider. I need entire homepage to be configured like this from admin panel. Is it possible?
  • is it possible to put Login and Cart in the header close to search rather than top navigation and menu respectively? (without CODE CHANGE)
  • Is it possible to have currency and language where Login is i.e in the top navigation?
Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Answers for your questions are below:

  • Is it theme Multistore ready? Yes, Blakcnwhite is multistore ready
  • Do you Countdown for products on sale? Countdown timer was already implemented in theme. Here you can check how it works: http://demo.meigeeteam.com/blacknwhite-magento-theme/english/kids/combined-padded-waistcoat.html That functionality will be implemented in next theme version.
  • Do you have payment gateway API already configured? Payment methods/services are default magento functionality and is not theme related. Anyway, here is good article which should help you: Magento Wiki, Inchoo
  • Do you have Shipping API already configured? Also, is not theme related. Please refer to the following websites, almost every detail of Magento configuration was discussed there:
  • Do you have any home page builder in the Admin panel? I need entire homepage to be configured like this from admin panel. Is it possible? Theme builder is not included in theme package
  • is it possible to put Login and Cart in the header close to search rather than top navigation and menu respectively? (without CODE CHANGE) There is no such admin option
  • Is it possible to have currency and language where Login is i.e in the top navigation? That can be achieved by custom code changes

Really interested on this theme, is it possible to remove the blocks below the navigation? Free delivery worldwide, etc.

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Thank you for showing interest to our theme. Those blocks are content of static block. You can disable that static block in your admin and promo banners will disappear.

With best regards, Dylan

I like the theme, Only issue Lot CSS/JS make page load speed slow and price will not show up when item status “out of stock”, do you have planing to improve it in the coming version?? And does theme have design to show product qty??

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Custom themes have more features than Magento “default” theme so they will never be as fast as “default” theme. But there’s always a trade off: more features, less speed. That Page Speed only shows suggestions. It’s not possible to follow all of suggestions because you would need to rebuild Magento to do this. Here are some guides for Magento optimization, but you can find much more on the web: – http://www.activo.com/7-easy-magento-performance-tips-you-can-set-from-the-admin-panel/http://blog.nexcess.net/2010/10/22/6-tips-for-making-magento-production-ready/

Hi Dylan

Thanks for you reply, also other small issue I just found on the product detail page stock availability missing on the rich snippets, will you add this to your next improvement?

Dylan_meigee

Yes, that was already added to theme roadmap.

With best regards, Dylan

If you wanted the “top brands” slider like where it is on the demo what static block would you put the slider in. We are having an issue with the slider display’ing the full width of the page when we put it at the top of the blacknwhite_footer block. Not sure what div class’s we should wrap it in to stay within the width of the website?

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Top brands block on demo version is the part of home page content. If you need to get exactly the same view as on demo store, all you need to do is add widget by clicking “Insert widget” button which is at the top of field Content of home page.

With best regards, Dylan

hi

does your theme include all the demo products as well and how do you import them once i have installed your theme.

once i install your theme i want it to look exactly the same, some themes are missing images and its hard to see how things would look and work

thanks

MeigeeTeam

Hello, this theme comes with sql dump file so you can import it into your database prior magento installation and your test store will look the same as the demo. Images also come with theme but are blurred due to copyright restriction.

Hi,

I really loved your template but the version of my Magento is 1.5.1 and I read that the template does not support this.

Is there many problems with that?

Regards. Fabiana.

Dylan_meigee

Hi Fabiana,
Thank you for showing interest to our theme. We did not test Blacknwhtie on that magento version and can not say what exactly issues may appear while using theme on that magento version. We recommend to use theme only with compatible magento version (1.7.x.x-1.9.1.0).

With best regards, Dylan

Hi Dylan,

Thanks a lot for your quick answer. I’ll cry! I really loved it! :-(

Hi,

Does your blog support video and gallery posts please?

Thanks.

Hi,
Thank you for showing interest to our theme. Blog extension gives an option to insert any html content, so it is possible to add such things.

I had a couple of quick questions;

1. does you super mega menu support embedding a video iframe?

2. none of your demos show “recently purchased” products. Does your theme support RP products?

Dylan_meigee
Dylan_meigee Author Team

Hi,
Thank you for showing interest to our theme. Answers for your questions are below:

  1. does you super mega menu support embedding a video iframe?Yes, you can add video, probably slight customization will be required.
  2. none of your demos show “recently purchased” products. Does your theme support RP products? Yes, recently viewed products functionality is supported by theme. That block just disabled on demo store, but you can enable it just in one click using theme admin options.

Hello. I have too many categories that must be shown on front page. “Must”

How can i configure categories for more good looking?

You can check site www.solempet.com

Dylan_meigee
Dylan_meigee Author Team

Hi,
We see that you use default dropdown display mode of categories, so we can recommend you to try to use mega menu and set desired quantity of columns for top category in order to make all your categories to be visible without scrolling. Another solution you can create more top categories and make logical reorder of your subcategories, in order to reduce quantity of subcategories.

With best regards, Dylan

Hi, I have found other issue with mega menu on Tablet Device, when you drop down does not closed unless you click the link go to different page, I test same issue with your demo site, do you have plan to get this fix.

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
Thank you for noticing. That fix for it will be available in next theme version.

And few things need to be translate like ajax add to cart text when clicked it opens with popup and shows “go to cart” option. I need to change it turkish also.

Hi, love the look of this theme.

Would this be possible to have wider overall grid, say 1200px? It’s seems quite narrow @ 1008px. (978px after padding)

As built on Bootstrap, should be easy to change?

Dylan_meigee
Dylan_meigee Author Team

Hi,
We added to our roadmap to implement more wider grid. That new options will be available in one of our next theme versions.

Hi!

I am probably going to buy this theme for the second time in a row (second shop I sell) but I wonder if it is possible to show the side menu (as in here: http://demo.meigeeteam.com/blacknwhite-magento-theme/english/women/shoes/boots.html) on the home page.

Is it? How? Thanks in advance!

Dylan_meigee
Dylan_meigee Author Team

Hi,
Yes, you can add the shortcode of that block directly into content of home page {block type=”catalog/navigation” block_id=”catalog.categories” template=”catalog/navigation/left_nav.phtml”}} but some customization will be required. Contact us via ticket system and we will help you with that.

With best regards, Dylan

Thanks! Just going to wait for my costumer to give me the green light.

Cheers!

Hi, I’m using this theme (client purchased – can prove if you wish). I’m having difficulty getting the Options box (with to Add to cart, qty etc) on product page appearing in the product description column – it is appearing underneath. I see a section in config to position the tabs in diffferent locations, but where do I change the Options section?

Hi Dyan

Thanks for fast reply all the questions, I have another question we are located in Australia, for some reason google show all the pricing in USD format, would that be improve on your next version? and ETA for new version to be rollout.

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
We assume that you are talking about rich snippets? Currency in the google search results is showing according to the settings of an magento admin. So if you set your currency as Australian dollar in magento settings, then rich snippet will show that currency on search results page. Concerning the new version: for now we have no estimate date, but we hope it will be released in next 10 days.

With best regards, Dylan

Hello,
