You’ve probably updated to Magento CE 1.8.1.0 and use an older Fortis theme version.

With Magento CE 1.8.1.0 you have to use Fortis Theme Version 2.2.0 or later. Also, don’t forget to upload the Theme patch for Magento 1.8.1.0 which is included in the package.

We have just installed Fortis 2.3.0 for a client of ours who runs Magento CE 1.8.1.0 and the theme works just fine!

Hi, let me say that this is a great template and I appreciate so much your work. Then i I have to questions:

• how can I activate two “block_header_nav_dropdown” static blocks in the Main Menu bar? I can use a second “block_nav_links” block, but it will not provide the same look and behavior as the “block_header_nav_dropdown” does.

• how can I add sub-menu voices some main Menu voice created using an “block_nav_links” block?

Thank you!

Sorry, the second question was: “how can I add sub-menu voices TO some main Menu voice created using an “block_nav_links” block?”

infortis

Hello,

Thank you.

Please note that custom content blocks can be added to each top-level category, even if category has no subcategories. This way you can easily create drop-down for any top-level category. To use it like this you will need to enable option: System > Configuration > Menu > Show Category Blocks if No Sub-categories. Category blocks are described with details in the user guide: 13.2 Custom Category Blocks.

To add more standalone drop-down blocks (not related to categories) similar to block “Custom” from the demo, you would need to customize the theme, by default there is only one block. More blocks can be added the same way as the block_header_nav_dropdown was added. Please see these files as an example:

app/design/frontend/<ThemeName>/default/layout/infortis_ultramegamenu.xml:
<block type="cms/block" name="block_header_nav_dropdown">
    <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>block_header_nav_dropdown</block_id></action>
</block>
app/design/frontend/<ThemeName>/default/template/infortis/ultramegamenu/mainmenu.phtml:
...
<?php //Static block as a drop-down box ?>
<?php if ($tmpHtml = $this->getChildHtml('block_header_nav_dropdown')): ?>
...
So you need to create more blocks in CMS > Static Blocks. Then add those blocks to the menu via the XML file, e.g.:
<block type="cms/block" name="block_header_nav_dropdown2">
    <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>block_header_nav_dropdown2</block_id></action>
</block>
And then call those blocks in the menu template (mainmenu.phtml), e.g.:
...
<?php //Static block as a drop-down box ?>
<?php if ($tmpHtml = $this->getChildHtml('block_header_nav_dropdown2')): ?>
...

Hi, 1. Could you tell me if there’s a option to have a price tag on the item ? 2. Will you be adding any new features anytime soon ?

infortis

Hello,

1. By default there are “Product labels”: NEW and SALE.

2. Yes, for example in March: product count in main menu categories.

what about larger front end price tags

infortis

If you want to increase the font size of the price, you can do it with custom CSS. To find out which part of CSS you need to change you can use Firebug, an add-on for Firefox: http://getfirebug.com/
( http://getfirebug.com/video/Intro2FB.mp4 ) or other similar tool.

Hi. I am using Magento ver. 1.7.0.2. I would like the product price on the recommended product slider on the home page to have the price centered like on the demo. Could you advise how to do this?

Thanks

Hello,

In product sliders you can set elements to be centered using parameter centered. All available parameters are described in the user guide:

How do I remove the brands slider from the sidebar and homepage?

infortis

Hello,

Brand slider is displayed with the shortcode which is described in the user guide: 12.1.3 Brand Slider, if you remove that shortcode from your home page, the slider will disappear.

In the sidebar slider is placed inside one of the static blocks, e.g. block_left_top (all blocks can be found here: 6.2 Built-in CMS blocks)

Hello,

Is there a way to get the featured products slider streched full width?

Thank you!

infortis

Hello,

The slider is as wide as the container in which it was placed. So you would need to customize the page template to create a container that spans full width.

I’ve deleted the whole theme and disabled compilation and cache merging of .csv and so on. Then installed the newest version 2.3.0 and still the review tab won’t show up, i’m kind of a bit desperate here :(

infortis

Hello,

This works just out of the box so something overrides the theme in your Magento or causes some conflicts:
- third-party extensions,
- some custom modifications,
- custom sub-theme,
- some elements that left from previous theme etc.

Please refer to the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the user guide, check the list of possible sources of problems in chapter 14.1.1.

I can’t seem to get the lightbox on product pages to work correctly. I am trying to have the lightbox show my product images at the proper resolution and it doesn’t seem to be working.

What I am trying to do is have the image displayed at the maximum resolution the screen will allow for, depending on the image size. FOr example, if my image is 1260px x 945px and the person is on their iphone browsing my site, the image should open in a small lightbox. However, if they are using a computer with a large monitor, the image will open at full resolution.

The way I tried to do this is set the “lightbox max width and height” at 95%, then leave the “Image Width / Height after zooming” blank. However, the image always opens in a 650px wide lightbox.

Any ideas on what’s happening here?

http://puu.sh/6NFKD.png http://puu.sh/6NFNJ.png
infortis

Hello,

If you leave “Image Width after zooming” empty, then the default 650px will be used, so don’t leave it empty. If you want the zoomed image to be as wide as the screen, then you need to enter some large value in “Image Width after zooming”, for example 1920. You would also need to upload images of that size (or bigger, not smaller). But please note that this (large images) will affect performance of your website.

Kind regards

Hey,

I’ve changed this setting to something big. However, now when I click on an image when the screen width is small (like on an iPad), the image opens up larger than the screen, making it hard to exit out of the lightbox.

Is there a way to make this lightbox more “responsive” like the rest of the layout? Ideally there would be a set padding on the smallest dimension of the current screen. For example, on an iPad in portrait mode, the width is smaller than the height, so there should be a set padding on the width of that screen. The opposite would occur on a standard computer or laptop screen.

Thanks

infortis

If you set “Lightbox > Maximum Width” to 95% (or something similar. 95% is the default value), then the image will not open up larger than the screen. Value “Maximum Width” is to prevent this.

Hello,

I have an issue and a question:

I: My footer (colour) doesn’t stretch on the homepage, but does stretch on all the on the other pages. What could that be?

Q: Can I remove the lef and right arrow above the featured product slider?

Thank you!

infortis

Hello,

- Some custom CSS (or other custom modifications) that changes default styling.

- You would need to hide those arrows with CSS, e.g. display:none;.

When you want to make some non-standard design changes (for which you can’t find settings in theme admin panel), you can enable additional CSS file custom.css, in which you can override the default styles of the theme. For more details about theme customization please refer to the user guide, chapters 5. Customization and 5.1.2 Override default CSS styles.

Hello,

All you need to do is to copy the original HTML of the accordion:

ul class="accordion accordion-style1 clearer"

and paste it to your custom block. That will definitely work so I’m not sure what you are doing wrong here, please double check your markup etc. Maybe your menu just doesn’t have any nested blocks (UL inside UL) – in that case you will not see the “opener” (the [+] button).

Kind regards

Default-user

Yeah, I got the nested ULs but now that I’m certain it can be done, I’ll get the sucker! Thank you!

Sorry…one more.

All the Static Content Blocks have a slight italics font style. For the life of me I can’t see where it is coming from. I need to remove it as I’m trying to keep the font from my WP blog and magento store visually consistent. Test site: www.webjazz.com.au

Hello,

Your sidebars are wrapped inside em tags which by default in most browsers are rendered with slanted font:

This is not in the default markup of the page in this theme so this was added by some custom modifications.

I’m trying to create a category page with a bunch of configurable products.

Problem is all of the configurable products show a price, the configurable product options are for different prices based on size. So customers will see the lowest price then click on the option and see the size they want is more and call and complain.

I’m using this code {{block type=’catalog/product_list’ category_id=’4’ grid_column_count=’4’ hide_toolbar=’1’ template=’catalog/product/list.phtml’}}

Wondering if there is a way to hide the price with this code. Like the way hide_button=”1” works with the slider.

By the way if you are reading this and thinking of buying this theme…buy it…this and ultimo are the best themes out there, my question is not based on a problem but likely something that either the theme can do or that I hope they will add soon.

infortis

Hello,

Thank you very much for kind words!

How the price calculation works in configurable products is not theme related, it is the core of Magento. :)

In Fortis theme you can easily hide the price in:

System > Configuration > Theme Settings:
Category View (Grid Mode) > Display Selected Elements > Price_

If you don’t see this option in your admin panel, please upgrade to the latest version.

and have

Product Grid

What is this product grid? What kind of products i put in this category?

Hello,

It is the same grid as on category pages. In this example it will display products from category of ID “4”. You can specify any ID of existing category in this parameter:

category_id='4'

When trying to add a collapsible block on a CMS page, it isn’t working correctly. The block is added and it’s able to be opened, but I am unable to close it. After I click to expand the block, the plus sign remains until I click it again. It is then replaced with a minus sign and nothing else happens. When I click the minus sign, the block remains open and nothing happens. Any ideas? Here is my code:

<div class="collapsible">
    <h6 class="block-title">Charts</h6>
    <div class="block-content">
        Check me out
    </div>
</div>

Hello,

Where do you have this block – on a standard CMS page? Which version are you using?

I found the issue and fixed it right away. It seems that if I use my lightbox on the same page as the collapsible block, the collapsible block will not work.

It sounds like jQuery conflict (one of your extensions is loading another version of jQuery).

Hello,

We are trying to enable MAP pricing on Magento but when we enable it, the featured products sliders are being disabled. It will show the title but the products themselves disappear.

Please advise. Thank you!

infortis

Hello,

In Magneto the MAP pricing is not enabled for home page. To change it, open app\design\frontend\fortis\default\layout\local.xml, you will find this code:

<!--<update handle="MAP_popup" />-->

uncomment it so that it looks like this:

<update handle="MAP_popup" />

But if you want to use MAP feature inside sliders then unfortunately sliders are not prepared to display pop-ups of MAP (pop-up will be clipped if it sticks out from the slider). So you would need to display products with grid. To display a product grid similar to the grid which you can see in category view, you can add this block code to your home page content:

{{block type=’catalog/product_list’ category_id=’4’ grid_column_count=’4’ hide_toolbar=’1’ template=’catalog/product/list.phtml’}}

Hi Infortis, I am trying to add a background image to the main page, however when i do so from the Theme Design it does not add it to the breadcrumb section as seen in example link here.

http://www.discoverdirect.co.uk/fabrics.html

Same as with ‘footer top’.

Inner back ground of white is ok, however just the outer parts are just plain color and need to be same as per the rest background.

infortis

Hello,

Don’t set any “Background Color” for those sections (only the “Inner Background Color”).

Kind regards
