Is there a way to consolidate the categories on the main desktop home page but still have it show all the categories on the mobile page when clicked?

Basically I have about 48 categories and not sure how to make this look clean on the main home page top screen :-/ My drop shipper/inventory feed makes the categories, not me, so not sure how to “condense” it.

Also, just one other thing, I am not able to see the “First Banner, Second Banner, Third Banner” in the banner manger. Do I actually need to completely create these?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

You can limit the number of categories on the top menu. Admin->Configuration->Exodus Themes Configuration That limit is just for desktop version. On mobile version menu all of the categories is visible.

In case you want to show all that 48 categories to showed up on admin. You can enable the sidebar on the homepage and activate the sidebar categories menu.

Regarding Banner. Yes, you have to create on banner manager. Just upload and image and set the name.

Thanks

Do you actually need to load the manufacturer logos through zencart to show on the page correctly? If so, which directory do you load them to. Many of my manufacturers do not have logos and I would like to just show a few of them anyway… How do I do this?

Anyone out there?

What manufacturers you are talking about? Is it the Manufacturers carousel? If you want to remove the manufacturers image to showed up on the carousel, you can edit the code on includes/templates/exodus/templates/tpl_manufacturers_index.php

Find this code :

<?php echo zen_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES .  $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_image'], $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH); ?>

Replace with this :

<?php echo $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_name']; ?>

Hi Sammy – What I am asking is.. Is there a way to have the carousel ONLY show those manufacturers with an image uploaded. I have several manufacturers which I don’t have an image for so I don’t want them in the carousel.

sammycorp

Hi, Sorry for the last misunderstanding.

Ok then. on includes/templates/exodus/templates/tpl_manufacturers_index.php

Find this code :

<?php while (!$manufacturers->EOF) { ?> <li class="centeredContent"><a href="<?php echo zen_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'manufacturers_id=' . $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_id'], $request_type, false), 'get'); ?>" class="manufacturersImage" target="_blank"><?php echo zen_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_image'], $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH); ?></a></li> <?php $manufacturers->MoveNext(); ?>
sammycorp

Replace it with this code :

<?php while (!$manufacturers->EOF) { ?> <?php if($manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_image'] != ''){ ?> <li class="centeredContent"><a href="<?php echo zen_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, 'manufacturers_id=' . $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_id'], $request_type, false), 'get'); ?>" class="manufacturersImage" target="_blank"><?php echo zen_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_image'], $manufacturers->fields['manufacturers_name'], SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH, SMALL_IMAGE_WIDTH); ?></a></li> <?php } ?> <?php $manufacturers->MoveNext(); ?> <?php } ?>

Sammy – When I do this.. Everything after the Featured Products (including the manufacturers carousel) disappears? There must be something in the code it doesn’t like? Can you please help?

Hello? Can you email me if that’s easier?

sammycorp

hi Sammy!

Here is the site with your template http://every-day.com.ua/store.php?id=2 My client want to put block with phones (now this block is a part of logo) in the center of screen between logo and search box. If I put it between divs with #logo and #headerRight, last one floats down. Any thoughts?

in the old zencart I had the following option if customer Clicked -Categories – Every product in that category showed up in a grid form if they wanted a sub category they can choose that from left column

Is that available?

Same with Techmoor’s issue reported on pg 4 of comments, images/icons are not shown on IE or firefox when they do not have www. infront of my domain. Please let me know what’s the fix. Thanks! Love the template btw, and good organisation and thoughts behind it.

sammycorp

It’s because of the Same Origin Policy. Since Zen Cart has <base href=”” > tag in the header. If you navigate to your page using a different url than your base href, it will trigger this problem.

There are two options to handle this :

1. Redirect all request from non-www to www. You can use custom .htaccess rule for this

2. Use Google Font to serve the Ubuntu font and Fontawesome for icon from CDN.

- You just need to remove stylesheet_font.css and stylesheet_font-awesome.min.css in includes/templates/exodus/css/

- Edit includes/templates/exodus/common/html_header.php

Find code below :

<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="<?php echo DIR_WS_TEMPLATE; ?>jscript/jquery.1.7.1.js"><\/script>')</script>

Replace with this code :

<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="<?php echo DIR_WS_TEMPLATE; ?>jscript/jquery.1.7.1.js"><\/script>')</script>
<link href='//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu:400,700' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<link href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/3.2.1/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet">

Hope it’ll work

Thanks

Hi Sammy! I’ve been trying to contact you about my installation troubles. Essentially, the sql script says error, and the customized configuration menu doesn’t show. You can reply to my email, paul.kenney888@gmail.com Thanks!

If it’s helpful at all, I tried breaking down the install sql, and the two parts that came back as an error were (the configuration menu, also doesn’t show, i’m guessing because of the sql error): INSERT INTO configuration (configuration_title, configuration_key, configuration_value, configuration_description, configuration_group_id, sort_order, last_modified, date_added, use_function, set_function) VALUES (‘Themes Color Scheme’, ‘REVELATION_COLOR’, ‘pink’, ‘Template Color, Choose the color scheme’, @t4, 1, NOW , NOW , NULL, ‘zen_cfg_select_option(array(\’blue\’, \’tomato\’, \’twitter-blue\’, \’facebook-blue\’, \’red\’, \’green\’, \’pink\’, \’yellow\’, \’purple\’, \’custom\’),’), (‘Custom Color Scheme’, ‘REVELATION_CUSTOM_COLOR’, ’’, ‘Template Custom Color, Enter the hex color e.g(#ff6666).
