Thank you for this creative template , you did a great job :) but i have a question please , is there any way to change the template folder name , i mean i want to change this templates/bloora/css/template.css

Thanks alot

hogash

Hi there,

Thank you very much!!

I will tell you the steps you need to make but i will kindly ask you to backup the website first (also the database). This is for avoiding any potential problem and restore it back.

So let’s see:

1) Rename folder templates/bloora to templates/yourname

2) Open templates/bloora/templateDetails.xml and use the Search & Replace tool to find ‘bloora’ and replace it with ‘yourname’ . It should occur just 3 times but it’s easier for you not to search through the whole code.

3) Go to languages/en-GB/ folder and search for this file: en-GB.tpl_bloora.ini . Rename it to en-GB.tpl_yourname.ini

4) Now you should go to the PhpMyAdmin interface from your hosting provider’s control panel.

5) In PhpMyAdmin go to your database and access the table called ”#extensions”. Here look for the entry with the “name” set to “bloora”, “type” set to “template” and probably the “extension_id” set to “10010”. After you find the entry edit and replace everytime you see bloora with “yourname” (there is needed for only 2 replaces in 2 fields).

6) Now go to the ”#template_styles” table and you should see 2 entrys with the value of “bloora” into the “template” fields. So edit each one of them replacing the value “bloora” with “yourname”.

This should be it, give it a shot and tell me how it goes ok? Remember, try making a backup first so that everything should be ok :)

Best,

Marius

Hi Chris,

That module is called News Show Pro 4 from Gavick Pro, you can download it here https://www.yousendit.com/download/T2dkd0VHcWY1UjRpR01UQw . This is the extension’s page but i see their download page doesn’t work http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/news-display/frontend-news/7738 .

You can enable any content you want (title, images, thumbnails etc) within that module’s page.

Thanks for the links Marius

Hi Hogash,

I really love your template.

The only thing I don’t know is how to limit the depth of the navigation bar. I would like to have two levels rather than three.

Can you help me with that?

Thanks

hogash

Hi there,

Thank you very much!!

At this moment, the menu is added through the template manager > Bloora (menu tab) and there isn’t such option to limit.

But, you can try something else.

Disable the menu from template manager > bloora, menu tab.

Go to Modules manager, click New Module and select RokNavMenu. Enter the parameters, as well the limitation and don’t forget to select as a theme: Gantry-Fusion.

Now open templates/bloora/css/template.css and around line 130 you should see these rules:
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul {padding:0 ; background:#fff; margin-top:0px; -webkit-border-radius: 3px;-moz-border-radius: 3px; border-radius: 3px; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li {margin:0px ; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li .item { font:300 13px/1 'Tahoma', arial, serif; color:#555; padding:11px 0; margin:0 10px; text-shadow:none !important ; border-top:1px dotted #ccc; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li:first-child .item {border-top:none; margin-top:10px; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul:hover li .item, .fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs:hover ul li .item, .fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul:hover li.active .item  {color:#555 !important; text-shadow:none !important;}
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li .item:hover {color:#000 !important; text-shadow:none !important;}

replace them with:

.fusion-submenu-wrapper {margin-top:15px;}
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul {padding:0 ; background:#fff; margin-top:0px; -webkit-border-radius: 3px;-moz-border-radius: 3px; border-radius: 3px; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; box-shadow: 0px 0px 7px #ffffff; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul li {margin:0px ; }
#rt-header .menutop li.root:first-child .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul li {margin-left:10px ; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li .item, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul li .item { font:300 13px/1 'Tahoma', arial, serif; color:#555; padding:11px 0 !important; margin:0 10px; text-shadow:none !important ; border-top:1px dotted #ccc; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li:first-child .item, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul li:first-child > .item {border-top:none; margin-top:10px; }
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul:hover li .item, .fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs:hover ul li .item, .fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul:hover li.active .item, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul:hover li .item, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul:hover li.active .item {color:#555 !important; text-shadow:none !important;}
.fusion-js-container .fusion-js-subs ul li .item:hover, .fusion-submenu-wrapper ul li .item:hover {color:#000 !important; text-shadow:none !important;}

Let me know how it goes, ok?

Hello Marius, Regarding to my previous comments , I’ve changed the template name and it works pretty well . but i can not access the template settings.

it gives me this Error :

500 – An error has occurred. Unable to use given directory. Check file permissions. any suggestions ?

Regards, Amer Dababneh

hogash

Hi Amer,

Have you managed to fix this error ?

If it’s ok with you could you send me on my email the ftp details so i can have a closer look ?

Thank you!

Marius

I’m interested in your topic .. but I wonder if it has a version for iPhone, iPad .. If you have not yet, could develop?

hogash

Hi there,

Thank you for your interest!

For iPhone there’s a minimal version. For iPad i haven’t optimised any version but from what i’ve heard (unfortunately i don’t own one) it displays fine. Perhaps it’s better to first test the website on both ipad & iphone and if everything looks ok to purchase the template :)

Have a great day,

Marius

Hey Hogash,

love your template…Got it installed and it’s working great accept that when ever I do a colour change in a article it always get’s overwrite by something…So basically there’s no way to customize the colour or the style of the font with in a article…

...Any ideas or suggestion would be appreciated, thanks…!

Ben

hogash

Hi Ben,

If you are placing the colors from css, try using the !important statement, like:

.class {color:#000000 !important; }

It should override the style.

Let me know if it works, ok? If not, please leave me the link and i will have a closer look, ok? Thank you very much!

Hi Marius,

Just wanted to let you know that my site is in production now and it looks great with your template. Thanks a lot and God Bless.

If you want to take a look it is at:

http://www.preachtothenations.com and http://www.evangelizagratis.com

Same instance of joomla but setup as a multilanguage site.

by the way, it looks pretty good on iPad, iPhone and Android.

God Bless! JC

Thank you very much JC, i really appreciate!! They look good, congratulations!!

Have a really great week!

Marius,

I hate to bug you like this but I need some help. I have downloaded and setup my Bloora template a few months ago at http://www.endchapter.net in which you helped me debug the vportfolio component.

I’ve been watching my statistics via Joomla Watch and realize that Internet Explorer users leave my website almost immediately. I should have checked the compatibility from the start, but I didn’t. I opened my website http://www.endchapter.net in Internet Explorer 9 and it is a complete mess. The javascript for the portfolio component and css associated with it pushes objects all over the place.

I have tried to redownload your file from themeforest and replace the template bloora folder on my server to see if replacing the css and js would fix it, but it didn’t. I tested your demo on themeforest and your portfolio component and modules display nicely. What did you do different compared to my version… Please help, and thank you so much in advance for your time.

Best Regards,

Joe

hogash

Hi Joe,

I’m really sorry for this, i noticed in the js console a bug. I see you disabled the Colorbox. Could you try to enable it from Templates Manager > Bloora / Style tab.

Also if this doesn’t fix, please try sending me the ftp details and i will have a look inside the files. Is it ok with you?

Thank you very much and i apologize for this!

Marius

Marius,

I emailed you back but I wanted to post a reply here so others know what this was about. First of all, I recommend Hogash’s templates to everyone who wants a beautiful, easy to use, and cross-browser compatible website. The layouts are so dynamic and clean. The typography is really well done and the slideshows are to die for!

Marius replied quickly and helped me find the issue. Sadly he spent quite some time trying to find a problem with the template I was having, only to find it to be a 3rd party plugin on my website that had absolutely nothing to do with this wonderful template. None-the-less, Marius did not complain and he helped me solve my issue when he could have easily told me it was not his problem. He provides amazing customer support, so if anyone is thinking about purchasing Bloora or Ammon, I highly recommend giving it a shot, you won’t regret it.

hogash

Thank you very much Joe, i really appreciate your wonderful feedback!!

Have a really great day!

hi my friend iam interested very much about this template…but i want some help to configure out with this…so i have some questions about this.. 1)is is compatible with mobile and wich devices or systems like ios,windows, blackberry,symian ? 2) i want to have in several languages is this possible? 3) Is it seo compatible? 4) Is there a option to subscribe to my mailing list or unsubscribe? 5) I want to work with it in a directory like www.mysite.com/demo when i finished how can i transfer it to my parent directory like www.mysite.com? 6) and i want to the first page to show me my work (websites) thanks

hogash

Hi there,

Let’s see:

1) Yes it has a built in iphone/android optimized version. Not sure how it looks on Bberry or symbian though. If you have some devices please test it first.

2) Yes, Joomla 1.7 supports internalization, you will have to read more documentation from here http://www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/multi-language-sites-in-joomla-17/

3) Yes it’s SEO optimized

4) Yes it uses a 3rt party component – AcyMailing

5) Yes you can move it afterwords on your root directory. Just 2 variables from configuration.php you will need to change

6) As you can see on the frontpage, there’s a module with 3 portfolio items. There will be placed 3 of your recent works.

Hope this helps in deciding :)

Best regards,

Marius

hi again first of all i would like to thank you for your quick answer … right now my problem is that i have allready install my joomla website in a directory like www.mysite.com/demo… but i want to remove it because i dont know when i finished my web site how to transfer it to my root…do you have any solution with that?? any help ??

hogash

Hi there,

Yes you can easily move the whole directory. What ftp client are you using?

Marius

Can i ask if the Parallax module is a zip and can be installed on other sites? Or is it only packaged for this template? I want to buy this template simply for the parallax module.

hogash

Hi there, thank you for your interest!! The module is already installed but it’s no problem you can copy the module folder and then just discover it. Safely purcase it and send me an email, i will tell you step by step what to do.

Hello, Marius

I have been trying to add a favicon in this template but i can’t. Can you help me solve this small issue?

hogash

Hi Yiannis,

Please try this:

- copy the favicon to templates/web1/images/

- open templates/web1/index.php and inside the tags add this:
<link href="<?php echo JURI::base().'templates/'.$this->template; ?>/images/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" />

Make sure you have your cache cleared when you check. Or check with another browser to see if any change.

Let me know how it works, ok?

Marius

please give me a email because i installed but i have problem thanks!!!

hogash

Hey,

Use the contact form from the right-bottom side of my themeforest user page http://themeforest.net/user/hogash .

Marius

i have send you email

Hi Marius, I like your template, and I bought it. I’m new to joomla and I have 2 questions.

1) how I can add a video to Slider Plus with parallax effect. I tried add Youtube ID does not work, as it comes in the documentation. I need to make some other adjustment?

2) as I can choose to activate only Nivo Slider?

thanks in advance

hogash

Hi Jorge,

Thank you very much for purchasing!

Let’s see:

1) Could you please send me the code of the youtube video? Also do you have enabled the colorbox in Template Manager > Bloora > Styles tab ?

2) I’m not sure what you mean. You want to have only Nivo Slider somewhere in the site, or only on homepage?

Thank you, Marius

Marius i updated the newest version of joomla an something going wrong so i i upload from the package joomla Joomla 1.7.2 the folder library and worked again ..but the first thing i saw is that the bubbles from main pic slider doesnt move at all..can you take a look…?? thanks

hogash

Hi Leonidas,

Try this please, go to Administrator > Template Manager > Bloora (portfolio) > Style tab – here enable the Colorbox option. This is the lightbox pop-up i included so it’s better to have it enabled. Don’t confuse it wth the left side demo panel :)

Have a really great day,

Marius

Hello Marius,

Great template! I LOVE it. You did a fabulous job.

I have a question about the homepage Plus Slider with parallax efect. I only want to have one image there, not a slide show. Is there any way to do that? I love the parallax effect and want that on my one image. What do you suggest? I didn’t see a way in the module to only have one slide or to turn off the slider arrows.

Thanks for any help. Keep up the great work.

Jayne
