Discussion on Black&White - Responsive Magento Theme

Hi,

I’m looking for commercial support in customising this template. There are 2 stages of customisations that I’m expecting – would you be willing to go through a document which describes my requirements?

Ideally it would be to discuss this via Skype/phone.

3, Is there a way to make the “Display Product Options In” display in the “product info column” by default without having do it manually on each product?

Many thanks awesome work!

MeigeeTeam

Hi,
Thank you for theme purchasing. Answers for you questions are below:

  1. Where does the newsletter emails get stored to and how to send out a news letter from magento? Newsletter is magento functionality, here is is an article which describes magento newsletter functionality, its admin options and possible solutions in case newsletter feature doesn’t work.
  2. I installed the default static blocks and used the sliders but I don’t seem to have the revolution slider drag and drop system displayed in your features on this page? only the HEADER SLIDER how can I swap for the revolution slider as the full width slider on home page? Revolution slider can be configured in admin under the AM -> AM Revolution slider. Created slides can be placed almost everywhere via using magento widget. More detailed about revolution slider you can read in theme documentations and in Revolution slider documentation. Both documentation are included in theme package.
  3. Is there a way to make the “Display Product Options In” display in the “product info column” by default without having do it manually on each product? Here is thread on magento forum which describes how to do that. Btw, if you have some questions about Magento itself, please refer to the following websites, almost every detail of Magento configuration was discussed there so you will find answers for most of your questions: Magento Forums, Magento Stack Exchange, Stack Overflow Q&A.

Hello,

I wonder if there is a possibility to add the Facebook Open Graph in future updates?

Thank you!

MeigeeTeam

Hello, At the moment we do not plan to add this feature.

Hi, I’m a newbie learning how to build a website. Where do I edit css html etc for the homepage? I want to change the header slider, change the homepage layout as well (I want it to look like the live demo). I’ve gone through all options and settings on the admin panel including general option under Meigee / Theme Options but I could only do so much. :(

Thanks, Tirta

MeigeeTeam

Hi,
You can apply changes directly on home page content in admin (CMS -> Pages -> Home page -> Content vertical tab). All the CSS styles you will find under this folder: skin\frontend\blacknwhite\default\css. Btw, Firebug’s CSS tabs can tell you everything you need to know about the styles in your web pages, and if you don’t like what it’s telling you, you can make changes and see them take effect instantly. More detailed information about that debug tool you can find on their promo page: https://getfirebug.com/ or you can use similar debug tools in other browsers.
To get exactly the same view of home page go to Source -> Static Content -> Pages open home.html file in your favorite text editor copy all that content and paste it in the content field of your homepage. While editing the static content please disable WYSIWYG editor because it breaks html mark up. Besides, if you running store on test server you can use “Activate button” (Meigee -> Activate Theme) which creates all the needed static blocks and home page itself in a few seconds. 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! This theme has compatibility with the Portuguese language (Brazil) and with its currency? I can use the themes on multiple Magento stores with regular license? thank you very much

MeigeeTeam

Hello. Yes, this theme is compatible with this translation http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/magento-official-portuguese-translation.html

As to license issue, you have to buy different licences for each domains you want to use this theme on, not matter is this is one multiple or a few different magento stores.

i created sub-theme in configuration design as instructed but it doesn’t show up under dropdown menu in CMS pages and also categories.

How do I remove this thing? it’s annoying also it would not be practicle if you are doing it for your clients

MeigeeTeam

Hello,

To remove that message you need to open up

app/code/local/Meigee/ThemeOptionsBlacknwhite/Model/Cssgenerate.php

in any text editor and remove code starting from line 1032 down to line 1035

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello,

I was at point buying your theme but saw @silverline post. And I really DON”T like this also in my backend.

Backend must be clean and without %#^&^ links. Which are totally useless. Get rid of it

So please remove in your next release !! And meantion in your changelog.

And my original question is : when is the next release ?

MeigeeTeam

Hello, To remove that message you will need to open up

app/code/local/Meigee/ThemeOptionsBlacknwhite/Model/Cssgenerate.php

in any text editor and remove code starting from line 1032 down to line 1035

Next update will be released next week.

hello, can i put the “my cart (# of selected itens)” into the fixed menu thing, so when i scroll down the page i can see how many itens i already have selected?

Default-user

if i buy this theme and use it, and then in the future unistall magento and install it again, will my theme work or do i have to buy it again?

MeigeeTeam

Hi,
Yes, sure you can add that counter to the sticky header. In order to do that go to: app\design\frontend\blacknwhite\default\template\checkout\cart\topcart.phtml find string <?php echo $_cartQty; ?> and before it add class “cart-qty” to the span Save changes and go to skin\frontend\blacknwhite\default\css\styles.css or skin\frontend\blacknwhite\default\css\custom.css add the code below:

.sticky-cart header#header.floating .grid_12 .top-cart .title-cart span.cart-qty{<br /> display: block;<br /> font-size: 9px;<br /> line-height: 12px;<br /> position: absolute;<br /> right: 5px;<br /> top: 8px;<br />}

Save changes, flush the cache and the counter will appear on sticky header. Concerning the license: according to the envato terms and conditions you can use 1 license for the one domain. Locally on test servers you use it as many times as you wish. By the way, from now we provide support only via ticket system.

Hi,

Thanks for creating awesome theme, I just want to ask if we can make the category page listing all the sub-categories with thumbnail images like this page: http://www.katom.com/cat/tabletop.html

Thank you very much!

MeigeeTeam

Hi,

Yes, you can create that page. But all content will be static html with links to categories.

Default-user

I am sorry for asking too much, but it would be great if you can show me how to do that, I am not so good at coding… :)

MeigeeTeam

Yes, we can help you with this for free.

Hi, just a quick question.

On the category page, if you have a banner simply you don’t need the H1 Category name cause it’ll over kill the top of the category page and visual wise will not concentrate on the products as header name and banner both together will look too big, so I remove the H1 tag so that the banner will speak for itself if without the banner the breadcrumb will still identify where you are at, now here’s the question the product counts why it has to be on the top on the header it look out of place isn’t it better to place it at the bottom as it’s not the main attraction? and how because it’s not in view.html other wise the theme is great.

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
To remove that counter from the category page, delete or comment out code below in next files app\design\frontend\blacknwhite\default\template\ajax\catalog\product\view\list.phtml (ajax version) and in app\design\frontend\blacknwhite\default\template\catalog\product\list.phtml (non-ajax version)

jQuery('.toolbar').each(function(){    if(!jQuery(this).parents('.toolbar-bottom').length){     jQuery('header.page-title .amount').remove();     jQuery('header.page-title')
.append(jQuery(this).find('.amount'));  
  }  
 });

Save changes flush the cache and counter will disappear. To add that counter to the bottom of product listing page go to skin\frontend\blacknwhite\default\css\custom.css and add next code:

.toolbar .amount{display: none;}
.toolbar-bottom {clear: both;}
.toolbar-bottom .toolbar .amount{display: block; margin-bottom: 2.5em;}
Save changes flush the cache and enjoy achieved results. 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,

A while ago i asked if a specific homepage layout was possible.

I was told this is possible and you could assist me in achieving this layout. I wondered if there is documentation for the theme where i can see how the grid layout works?

Kinds regards, Lucas van Rooij

Dylan_meigee

Hi,
All necessary information about grid system you can find here: http://960.gs/ . The main principle is that all blocks are wrapped in portions sum of which should be equal width of 960px. Unfortunately in magento there is no content builder which makes site development more easier, but it is pretty simple to develop home page by editing homepage static content using grid system.

Hi there,

Fantastic theme. We’re considering purchasing for our website redesign, but we have a couple of questions first.

Our website will not strictly be an e-commerce site with a bunch of products. Rather, we will regularly be creating “collections” or “look books” as the seasons change, and we want to be able to create a good marketing direction that ties several different products together for our customers. Does this make sense? Here are some of our questions:

1) Are all home page widgets available for standard pages as well, ala carte?

2) Can we include product widgets in blog posts?

3) Can we include product widgets on any page?

4) Do you have any examples of non-product pages, other than the blog pages on your demos?

Please let me know if you get a chance. We’re looking to make a final decision soon. Thank you!

Dylan_meigee

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

  1. Are all home page widgets available for standard pages as well, ala carte? Sure, you can add widgets on cms page or in static block content.
  2. Can we include product widgets in blog posts? Yes, product widgets can be inserted in description part of blog post
  3. Can we include product widgets on any page? Yes, you can add product widgets on any cms page.
  4. Do you have any examples of non-product pages, other than the blog pages on your demos? Sure, Contact us page, Customer service, Privacy policy

Dylan,

Great. Thanks for your reply. One more question. Is your theme built on any standard framework, e.g. bootstrap, or is it custom? The reason I ask is that we’re looking for this redesign to last us at least five years, pending any significant tech changes of course, and we are a little nervous about going with a theme that uses framework foreign to other developers. For instance, if we want to hire a designer to custom create content based on your theme without running into glitches/problems. Does this make sense?

Thanks!

MeigeeTeam

Hi,

Our theme is based on magento blank theme but improved a lot. If your potential developer faced with magento default theme it won’t be a problem for him.

Hi,

How easy it it to customize the home page to add in, things like, Popular Product, Promotions etc

Simon

MeigeeTeam

Hello,

To customize the homepage you need to have basic html knowledges. Additionally, there are a few our own widgets (work the way as default magento widgets) which you can use for showing products on the homepage.
