Hi. Great theme.

I have couple of questions.

Is it easy to put “Manufacturer” windows on left side of each page?

Also, is it possible to turn this theme back into 3 columns? I want to be able to have right column for best sellers, information..etc.

Thanks.

sammycorp

Hi, Thanks.

1. Did you mean move the “Manufacturers” as a sidebox module? You have to move the code, I think it’s not difficult if you know PHP/HTML.

2. On the Admin section (Themes Configuration), you can choose the homepage layout from full-width(like on the demo), left-middle, right-middle or left-middle-right.

Hi. I purchased the theme…it’s good so far.

I can’t get the Ezy Pages Header to show above the search…how do you turn that on?

I also turned some of the COLUMN BOXES on the left side but they do not show up. Is there something I have to do?

Thanks.

Kevin.

Hi, Thanks for purchasing my themes.

1. EZ-Pages
Login to your admin. Navigate to :
Configuration->EZ-Pages Setting->EZ-Pages Display Status - FooterBar
2. Columns
Configuration->Exodus Themes Configuration->Main Page Layout
Choose : “left-center” And make sure you activate Left Column.
Configuration->Layout Settings->Column Left Status - Global

Good Luck..:)

This is absolutely fantastic, I love how you integrated a theme configuration into Zen-Cart admin. Does the database need to be modified to hold these values or did you use existing tables?

Also, did you use the existing banner manager for the front page slider or did you do this another way?

Great work!

sammycorp

Hi,

How the admin works is same like Configuration setting(Images, Layout Setting, etc). No modified code on the admin :)

The three banner below slider use banner manager. But the Slider works another way(Define Pages).

Cheers.

Hi, I really like this theme and was wondering if this Cart is supported on GoDaddy, where I would be hosting this. I did not like the Quick Shopping Cart templates created by GoDaddy.

Cheers.

sammycorp

This is Zen Cart. Any hosting that meets the zen cart requirements is okay. Just to be sure, ask them first. Personally, I recommend bluehost or hostgator.

Cheers

Hi, great theme! Congratulations!

it’s possible to make boxed layout or only in wide mode?

thanks regards

sammycorp

Both of them are possible. You can configure it from admin page. No need to code it.

Default-user

any demo mode?

sammycorp

Check the demo. I configure the main page to be left-middle-right. But other page only left column activated.

sammycorp

I return the demo to default, just send me an email if you want to take a look at the admin feature. I will give you the account.

Default-user

Many thanks. Only one more question before buy. It’s possible show features products on footer, and no lastest products? Or it’s configurable on admin, and show only products that we put on this area?

sammycorp

You can choose between “Featured, Latest, Specials” on admin page.

Default-user

Nice work ;) thanks again.

My site is coming along beautifully. Thank you for all the support. Truly A++ support.

One question…how to I reduce space between the logo and the slider banner? There is too much gap between there and I want to reduce it.

Let me know…thanks.

sammycorp

If you use Chrome or Firefox, there is add-on maned Firebug. You can inspect all of your site element. The logo is inside #headerWrapper, you can find that element on the css file and reduce the margin.

Thanks

Oh…sorry. One more question. How do I add a banner to right of the logo…there is big wasted space between logo and the search bar. I would like to be able to add a logo there.

Thanks.

sammycorp

You can put footer banner code there, since the header banner used.

For example :
<!--bof-banner #5 display -->
<?php
  if (SHOW_BANNERS_GROUP_SET5 != '' && $banner = zen_banner_exists('dynamic', SHOW_BANNERS_GROUP_SET5)) {
    if ($banner->RecordCount() > 0) {
?>
<div id="bannerFive" class="banners"><?php echo zen_display_banner('static', $banner); ?></div>
<?php
    }
  }
?>
<!--eof-banner #5 display -->
Then you have to setup the banner from admin.

Hello there,

I wondered if there was anyway to make the ‘zoom’ button (that is on top of product images contained in product listing) use Image Handler? It works on product info, it loads the bigger version when clicking on magnifying glass. But I think the zoom function is different on the category listing for example. It shows small images at the moment. Thanks in advance. I am using Image Handler 4 for zencart

sammycorp

I am away from my computer, have to check it later.

Default-user

That’s okay. I will see if I can look at the code, and change it to load large images from BMZ_Cache (large images). It does that with image zoom on the product listing page itself, so perhaps I can merge the differences?

This theme is truly wonderful, the best I’ve seen so far; elegant, clean, simple and beautiful. I want to buy it so bad, however, before I do, I want to know if there is anything keeping me from using my own backend i.e. I don’t want to use php or zen cart. Please can you tell me if I can do this.

Hello again,

Also, is it possible to make jquery elements work alongside extra modules that use jquery and css loader for zencart? For example, I just tried adding one, but it stops the menu showing when you hover over it at the top. Thanks,James

sammycorp

It’s possible. You just need to make sure that the “jquery” is not loaded twice. If you use Firefox or Chrome, install Firebug plugin, you can inspect all your site element and see if javascript error exist with it.

Default-user

Thanks I will try that :-)

I can’t buy your theme because stupid paypal won’t let me register with them cause of the country I’m from. Even tried using skrill for prepaid credit but that didn’t work either. Is there another site or another way to pay for the theme, I mean I’m actually trying to buy something here but this site won’t let me; a simple mastercard payment plugin would’ve made my life easier. Please I need a way to get this theme soon, help!

sammycorp

I am afraid that I can’t help. I am an exclusive author so my items only available on themeforest. Maybe try to contact envato support, they may have a solution for you.

Hi, I installed the zip and it failed. It says The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.

sammycorp

Please note, that this is not WordPress themes. This is Zen Cart themes, you have to install zen cart first before using this themes.

BUG REPORT:

Hi. I have found a bug in the theme.

I have over 15 categories. I have sidebar category that shows all of them. on the top of each page I have set the theme setting to show only 7 because it’s not long enough for all 15 main categories.

Only problem is that when the website is viewed in tablet or smartphone, people can only see 7 categories, not the full 15 categories because theme takes categories from the top menu.

Is there any way to fix this so that when the theme is shown in responsive mode in smaller screen it shows full categories.

Thanks.

Kevin.

sammycorp

Hi, Kevin. I will fix it soon and upload the changes, I will include the changelog too. It should be an easy fix. Thanks for the report.

Has the issue with the responsive menu been fixed? I downloaded the latest and file name is same and there is not documentation.

Please let me know if it’s been fixed. If it has, can you let me know which files to replace? If I upload everything, some of my customization gets over written.

Thanks.

Kevin.

sammycorp

I just upload the changes. You will be notified via email by Themeforest.

The changes only on one file. I include the changelog too, so you would know the modified files.

I just noticed that the theme is missing this feature from default Zencart installation.

Usually there is following links below Category in default theme but it’s missing on your theme.

Specials … New Products … Featured Products … All Products …

Is there anyway to put them back in?

Thanks.

sammycorp

Hi, On the The link exist on the sidebar, but not on the header. There is another way to add a custom link, you can use EZ-Pages, Thanks to Heathanmagic

hello Joongpark,

I did it with EZPages, and enabled them for ‘Header’ only. They sit above the search box

sammycorp

Thanks for helping the other. :D

Hello there,

I don’t suppose there is a quick and easy way to change the image zoom function on product listing pages, new pages, specials and similar, to use this function:-

zen_image($products_image_large)

Which is the same function as product info page zoom. For some reason, the listing pages produce a small image zoom. I have Image Handler 4 which I think is doing it. Thanks in advance.

sammycorp
Just want to make it clear.
zen_image function returns complete image tag with src, alt, width, height.
<img src="images/test.jpg" alt="Testing" width="320" height="240" /> 
But the lightbox is just a link to the larger image, something like this :
<a href="images/test.jpg" rel="lightbox">Larger Image</a>

I don’t think I can use the zen_image function. But, there is other way, get and modify the code from main_product_image.php, so we can get the ”$products_image_large” link.

To be honest, I am very busy these day, I am sure I will take a look into it.

Default-user

thanks for your reply. I understand you must be busy as your work is exceptional.
