Great Template! One question – how to i translate the text (Search…) in the search module?

arrowthemes

Hi Pamolade,

Here is an article on how to translate to another language. The search text is define in tpl_warp.ini file as TPL_WARP_SEARCH.

Let me know if that helps. :)

In the Directions setings for the map on the contact page the orange icon seems to be locked to madrid, spain, i cant find any more settings refering to this to change it, also i cant get the direction to show in the lightbox. :stress:.

Any ideas on how to solve this?

arrowthemes

Here’s how to set your location:

In module manager, search for ‘map’ module/position and edit the module. You’ll notice the following code:
{mosmap width='100%'|height='550'|lat='40.416691'|lon='-3.700345'|zoom='10'|mapType='roadmap'|marker='1'|align='center'}

go to google maps and get the latitude and longitude of the location you want to display by clicking on the ‘link’ button and set it in the above code: lat=’my_lat’|lon=’my_lon’

For the directions, google (off-late) has disabled any of their service from loading within an iframe so you could try external or on the map direction. You see more info here:

http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Demo-Google-Maps-V3/marker-with-directions.html

Examples here: http://tech.reumer.net/google-maps/demo-google-maps/directions-on-map.html

hope that helps. regards, Joel

Ah I see, I found loads of the options in the plugin manager but didn’t think to look in the module manager area for it.

Thanks for the fast reply!

Wow! So here I am, BACK after five days of finding out new little hidden gems within this template, with a LIVE site!!! This is what the OLD site with nothing but a front page looked like before http://www.yolandamoore33.com/images/oldsite1.jpg The new site (which my client is OVERFREAKINJOYED with) is still a work in progress as I have a few minor issues that Joel has been graciously helping me sort out. (pssst. ...there’s an events extension out there that’s ALL beauty and NO brains whose support SUCKS !...you know who you are, Oh…... just get your act together and stop passin’ the buck! O…....K?) I digress.

BUY THIS TEMPLATE ! nuff said!

The NEW site after…http://www.yolandamoore33.com

Thanks Joel.

Oh. My mobile version is kinda hott too.

Great work! The amount of additional content you include with the template is extremely helpful also. The best $35 I’ve spent at Themeforrest so far!

Ok….this is probably a dumb question but I’m going to ask anyway: I am using the WidgetKit Slideshow component and it is placed in the Full-Slider position. The images I have in there are 1700×650. I want these to center on different computer screens, right now they “push” to one side and the images are offset. My desktop is 1680 and it fits well…on my Mac Book it’s a little off…on the iPad its way off…and on the iPhone you can’t even see it.

What size should the images be to fit best…or is there a setting or code I can to enter to make them resize automatically?

I really appreciate your help…thank you!

arrowthemes

Hi,

Thanks for the kind words. :)

Let me have a look at that possibility and will get back to you soonest.

Joel,

Any update on my request? I just need to know what size images I should use that will allow them to fit the screens evenly on any device. Or is there a particular code I should utilize?

Thank you!

arrowthemes

Hi,

I’ve tried centering the images using various alternatives but seems to me like a tough cookie. The closest I could get to a solution was to set the image in the image slide content with a width of 100% and the height same as the slider settings

<img src="images/demo/slide/images/wslider_1.jpg" border="0" alt="abana" width="100%" height="650" />

This will stretch the image to fit the screen size. However it looks better on a smaller height say of 450.

regards, Joel This works well with a height

Thank you

arrowthemes

Yep. I’ll probably update it early next week so I’ll include that as well. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi, And thank you for the fantastic template …

I’m having some problems find where to edit the text above the contact form …. “We pride in providing reliable feedback to our clients. Drop us an email and we’ll get back to you soonest.”

Thank you again.

arrowthemes

Hi and….your most welcome :)

To edit that text open language/en-GB/en-GB.com_contact.ini and edit the text for the following variable: COM _CONTACT_FORM_INTRO

Hope that helps.

First, I really liked the theme, so you did a good job. However, I installed the new template using the clarke_j25_quickstart.zip. Now most of the images are appearing black, particularly the gallery pics. Then I thought maybe I did a regular joomla install and didn’t use the quickstart, so I deleted everything including the database and reinstalled and it still showing black images. On the first page, the first two images show black, but the next two appear fine.

arrowthemes

Hello,

Thanks for purchasing my item. Actually on the item description i mentioned that ‘The demo images have been replaced with placeholder images.’ The grey and dark images are simply placeholder images since I can’t include the images for download as I don’t hold the copyrights to do so.

Hope that explains :)

Hi Joel, Clarke looks great. Can this be set up as a single page?

arrowthemes

Hi,

Not out of the box, but with a bit of customization I believe you could. ;)

Hi Joel, I was checking out my new version of the demo site on an IPAD 1 and the sequence slider on the Home page spins but never appears. I disabled all of the other sliders and turned-on the Safari debug, but no errors are occurring. Any suggestions… thanks,

arrowthemes

Hi dpozun,

I’ve tested on the ipad2 and looks ok on my side. Could you provide a link to your site? When you view my demo do you see the same thing?

Joel, when I view your Demo site I get the same thing. Everything on the home page shows up, however the slider show three blinking dots (like it’s trying to load something).

arrowthemes

Hi,

Could you try the following:

Go to module manager > search for ‘Sequence Slider’ and edit. Set ‘show preloader’ to ‘No’ and save. Clear cache and refresh the home-page.

Let me know your findings.

regards, Joel.

Seting the ‘show preloader’ to NO fixed the problem. The slides appear, however the individual selector doesn’t show, but it’s not really needed. Thanks for your help.

I love this theme. Thanks a lot for making it. It’s spectacular! So far I have not faced any issues keeps fingers crossed. I do have a request, however, if it’s possible and not too much trouble. Would it be possible to create a Kunena Forum or JomSocial theme to go with this template? A template this good should include skins for some of the most popular extensions available today and Kunena is the forum standard for Joomla and Jomsocial is the leading community building extension apart from Community Builder. It would be amazing if you could put something clean and elegant together for this template. I don’t think it would be very hard- especially if using a template as a guideline, but you’re the expert not me so you would know :P Either way, I’m loving this template and hopefully you’ll add on to it real soon to make it even better and worthwhile!!!

Thanks plenty!!

arrowthemes

Hi,

Thanks for the kind words :)

I also appreciate the feedback though I’m not intending to add other extensions with this template but hopefully in a future one. The template is compatible with jomsocial and I believe jomsocial has a default skin that won’t look too bad either on any template. The only downside with including extensions especially ones that require subscription is that some buyers might get the notion that the subscription is part and parcel of what they download on TF no matter how much you declare ‘that its not’ on the item description.

Hi I Have a problem. that when replacing the logo, the menu gets all messed up, the search box moves under the menu, the social icons moved down to.

Why is that?

Thank you

arrowthemes

Hi,

Please provide a link that I can have a link. Most probably your logo is larger than the specified size of 300×80.

Hello,

I do think you’ve made a deposit of $40 but you haven’t purchased the item yet since it costs $35. To purchase the item, go to the item page and click on the purchase button.

Dear Joel,

We have deposited 40 dollars to themeforest. We have recieved a tax invoice from Envato, with order number. We need to download this template soon and start working to meet the commitment, please guide us how to fix the issue, why we are unable to see the download button.

Regards,

arrowthemes

Hello,

Have you gone to this page and clicked the ‘purchase’ button? on clicking it will ask you either to use the deposit or pay through paypal. To know if you’ve completed the purchase you balance at the top right should be $5 and you should see download tab where you can download the template.

If you’ve done so and still can’t download please contact envato support from here and they’ll be able to assist you.

Hi,

Where is the correct command to divide text content in columns? I find it in template demo and look it: [column one-third]{content}[/column] etc..

I use it but donĀ“t work, any sample?

Thanks

Pedro

arrowthemes

Hi,

try and toggle the editor so that you edit the content on raw text rather than editor. The syntax is:

[row]
[column one-third]{content}[/column]
[column one-third]{content}[/column]
[column one-third]{content}[/column]
[/row]

Ps. replace {content} with your text

Dear Joel,

I am unable to find template_j25.zip. In order to upload it to Joomla using extension manager.

Regards

arrowthemes

Hi,

I guess you are referring to this guide. the file is named as {template}_j25.zip rather. So in this case look for clarke_j25.zip. If you’re new to joomla, I’d highly recommend the quickstart method not unless you have an existing joomla extension.

Dear Joel,

Which editor you recommned in order to edit the template. I use dreamweaver. Is there any other robust editor, which supports your template.

Regards

arrowthemes

Hi,

Any editor that supports php/css/xhtml syntax will work. I personally prefer sublime text 2 or notepad++.

Dear Joel,

Thank you. I have installed Notepad ++ .

When enter the website name the home page is displayed. How this is done and how to locate the home page and all the other pages for editing.

Regards

arrowthemes

Hi,

The template comes with an admin option that you can access in template manager once you log in via www.mysite.com/administrator. There you can edit most of the settings, look and feel of the template. You can still further tweak the site by digging into the /css folder of the template and editing the respective css with notepad++.

If you are new to joomla, I highly recommend having a look at these video tutorials as a guide on how to edit joomla.

regards, Joel
