Where are the settings for the Menu. Instead of a mega-menu look on the drop-down, I want just a plain vertical drop-down look?

Also, how do I get the upgrades that you posted?

arrowthemes

Hi,

1. To disable the mega menu,

Log in to admin > navigate to Menus > main menu. go to the top menu item and edit e.g. features. On the page display options, remove the class columnwidth-200 columns-2.

2. Re-download the package from your download page and check on the change log in item description the files which have been changed and replace them with yours. Be sure to take a backup if at all you had done changes to them.

By the way, this is a great template and you’ve been a great help in answering my questions. I’m having a problem with the Sequence Slider module using IE7 . Whenever I set ‘show preloader” to No, the slider throws a javascript error saying “sequence.nextFrameID is null or not an object. I’m only using 5 of the 10 slides, so it must be trying to read slide6. Because of this error, the slider doesn’t show any of the slides. Not a great IE fan.

arrowthemes

Hi,

Please send drop me your email via my profile page and I’ll send you an update sequencejs file to test.

Hi,

I need install google font for body area “Great Vibes”, and i see the documentation about implement it from:

http://docs.arrowthemes.com/clarke-joomla-adding-new-files/

But don´t work for me.

Any help for it ?

Thanks

Pedro

arrowthemes

Hi Pferreiro,

The css folder has 3 font folders: font1, font2 and font3. In the documentation I was using the example of header fonts – font2. So if you want to use your font in the body, please use ‘font1’ folder when going through the documentation and that should work.

Hi Guys,

First I want to say we love the design of this template. Wel ook forward to what your future templates look like!

However I have some feedback – minor annoyances – please correct me if anything I say below is incorrect.

1 > A comprehensive photoshop file is not included? I see each image and background has been put into it’s own PSD . This is not very good for us when we typically purchase templates and provide to the client a mock-up with their color choices, logo, and content related to their industry.

2 > Most for our sites already have Joomla installed, and your instructions are lacking step by step instructions for making the site appear as it does in your live preview. I couldn’t find these instructions, and you seem to be using a custom content component. With template overrides available why did you choose to go this route?

Speaking from experience, the more options you provide to your client, the less they are able to actually use and benefit from the CMS . It’s best to use standard articles, standard categories, and adjust the layouts Joomla provides through template overrides. Not only will clients have a standard experience but if they happen to do any research, they’ll be able to follow along any basic instructions they come across.

Do any setup instructions exist for making the site look as it does in the preview? I can install, on a separate server, another instance of Joomla using your zip file you included – but that’s a pain. I’ll more then likely do it, but wanted to give you this feedback. It’s pretty standard to receive the full photoshop composition (in one file) and the instructions for making the newly installed theme look like it does in the preview.

Thanks!

arrowthemes

Hi,

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.

1. A fulll PSD is not included. However I provide the PSDs for images that I’ve used in the template. For mock-ups, I highly recommend the quick start install since you can use it to setup a live demo (exactly how my demo looks like) in a couple of minutes.

2. Thanks for letting me know. I will include the step by step instructions on how to setup the live demo when using the template install method rather than the quick install. The template has template overrides and if you check for instance, the portfolio pages, I’ve demo’d how to use joomla articles or a custom content component (which in this case, zoo, which offers additional functionality like comments which you can’t achieve using overrides alone). Thanks for the insight though.

For setting up the site like it is in my preview, I recommend using the clarke_j25_quickstart.zip package which takes a minute or so to setup. In my HTML themes, I used to provide full psds but then I got a couple of buyers asking ‘how do I slice/dice the photoshop to create x.png image’. Not only that, a large part of my design runs from idea sketch to browser since most elements are html5/css3 driven.

Hope that explains.

Does this template support RTL theme? Warp Framework is support it.

arrowthemes

Hi,

I know warp supports RTL so the only thing I’m not sure about is the custom modules which I can assist you to rectify if they are misaligned.

Hi, well done on a great template it looks awesome. I’m having trouble with the map module – in that it doesn’t go to the full screen wdith – only about 900px wide. It’s set to 100% in the module, can you please let me know what could be wrong? (i’m using the chestnut theme) Cheers.

arrowthemes

Hi,

Thanks for purchasing my item.

Are you using on the ‘map’ module position? Please send me a link via my profile of the site that you are working on then I can have a better diagnosis.

yes, map is in the map module position. I’m developing the site still on local, will send you the link once it’s up on the host account.

arrowthemes

Okidoks. Once you send the link, I’ll give you feedback. Did you use the quickinstall or did you set it up on an existing joomla installation?

thanks.. I used the quickinstall.

arrowthemes

okidoks. :)

Hey Joel just to let you know I’ve sorted out the map issue – totally my fault, I’d changed the header size to 80px from 100px height in the css, which broke it , sorry about that!

No worries, buddy :)

Hi 4degreeedu,

Am doing well, thank you. Are you referring to the toggles used in faq page? AFAIK , I don’t have an accordion widget but you could use the toggles to represent your data thus. Please provide more info on what you’d like to achieve.

Hi, There is a problem with the drop down menu, it only appear the dropdown menu when I click the main top menu. But normally when using the mouse hover over them, it should display the drop down menu. How should I configure this? Many thanks.

arrowthemes

Hi Alan,

Please send me a link of the site via my profile page, and if possible, user credentials that I could log in in the backend and check on what could be wrong.

Hi! I recently bought this wonderfull template, but now i have a question. In the “top a” section, there is a Custom HTML module named Slogan and Spot-on, i want to replace that Custom HTML module with a Featured Articles Module like: “mod_news_pro_gk4” to show the last 4 post in the Blog, but i can´t find a suitable module for the Blog entries made in Zoo. I tried mod_news_pro_gk4, but only works with articles made with joomla or k2 articles. Can you helpme please? =)

Thanks, and again..Wonderfull Template!!

PD: Sorry about my english, i´m from LatinAmerica

arrowthemes

Hey Sambuqa,

Thanks for the purchase. I haven’t come across a nice module that would showcase zoo blog items like you want. The closest alternative would be to go for K2 then showcase it with mod_news_pro_gk4. You could still create a blog with the default Joomla content and showcase it with mod_news_pro_gk4.

Can you tell me where I can find the contact us form so I may add fields and RE-Capcha. Thank you.

arrowthemes

Hi,

The contact form can be customized by going to: Components > contacts. > Edit ‘John Q. Public’ > click on ‘Display options’ tab’ > here you can show/hide the fields.

For RE-Capcha, do the following: Go to components > contacts > select ‘options’ at the top right > click on form tab > configure ‘Allow Captcha on Contact’ option. For it to work you also need to set our public key in capcha plugin in > plugin manager.

Hi arrowthemes,

how can i change the showcase items( images and text)?

example : Jewels are a rare find even though they do actually exist. Some take thousands of years and some, uuum.. like clarke, take a few thousand lines of code.

thanks. Bawi

arrowthemes

Hi Bawi,

Thanks for the purchase.

The text you quoted is in the slider position of sequence slider. Once you edit the sequence_js module, you can set the text and image for each slide in the ‘Slides Content’ tab on the right.

Excellent template,

Bought it, installed it, modified it and that’s it and I’ am off to the beach!

The only thing I would like is this one mentioned already before:

2 > Most for our sites already have Joomla installed, and your instructions are lacking step by step instructions for making the site appear as it does in your live preview. I couldn’t find these instructions, and you seem to be using a custom content component. With template overrides available why did you choose to go this route?

That’s all

arrowthemes

Hi,

Thanks for the kind words and for pointing out that quote. I’m working towards having the step by step instruction this week on my docs. :)

Excellent template! One thing though, how do I change the text on the offline message page?

arrowthemes

Thanks.

You can do so by navigating to Extensions > Language manager > Overrides tab > Click on new > set your language constant as ‘TPL_WARP_OFFLINE_PAGE_MESSAGE’ > set your desired custom text in text field. > save and close.

regards, Joel

arrowthemes

You can do the same for the title by setting the override for ‘TPL_WARP_OFFLINE_PAGE_TITLE’ constant.
