Hi

Just purchased the theme and installed the Demo Package to check it out.

Had quite a bit of trouble but is was related to the .htaccess file, and this is a Magento issue. I will dig into that later, for now I have disabled it.

But now I have the demo installed and all seemed to go well, but:

The demo has no images for products, and I cannot navigate to any subsite.

ex.: The requested URL /test11/default/dress2.html was not found on this server.

Only the front page can be opened…

I can open the /select-demo/ page, but I cannot use any of them since the folders do not exist on my website.

Am I missing something out here or has something gone wrong, I’m not quite sure what was intended..

Note I installed the demo to a subfolder on my web /test11/

Thanks in advance

Still get Image not found, but it is looking in some cache folder that does not exist.

infortis

Flush all caches after installation.

Are you using the Quick Start from the latest version 2.3.1? In that version product images are not included so you will just see placeholders. If you don’t see placeholder the this is most likely file permission issue on your server or you didn’t upload all files.

Have it all running now.

The image issues were related to the /media/.htaccess that need to be tweaked a bit for my server…

Thanks for your help.

Looking forward to working with the theme :)

Hello, I have the new version of fortis that is responsive. I’m trying to figure out how to keep the aspect ratio on images on the slider and others I placed on the homepage when the screen size shrinks. The images get squeezed and scrunched on the x-axis where they look tall on any other view than the max screen size. I’m wondering how to handle images on pages and static blocks to make them size correctly when it is on smaller screen sizes and different devices.

infortis

Hello,

You can enable:
System > Configuration > Fortis > Theme Settings > Keep Image Aspect Ratio

This option also affects product sliders.

Even if you didn’t enable this, images can’t get squeezed so your issue doesn’t seem to be theme related, you may have some additional custom changes (e.g. some CSS from extensions or from previous theme) which overrides theme’s default.

Kind regards

Hello Infortis,

I would like to repeat, that this theme is realy amazing, and the best one I have bought, until today. Thank you for all the excellent work and as well for all the updates supplied continously, enhancing the theme month by month!

With the latest update it seems that you have taken away some sample pages from your demos. Formerly you did have some sites inside the demo displaying different css formattings like alerts & List styles as well as the grid scheme. I was always using them as my css quick-guide when I wanted to customize something. Why did you remove this/these pages?

Could it be possible to bting them back to demo?

Another point I would like to repeat is the disapearing dropdown basket, when filled and viewed through safari browser. This is realy annoying because it could cost some customers (as they only hardly can call the basket to start the checkout process) and safari is a quite popular browser. I was hoping it would be fixed in the new update. Do you have any news about that?

I think this must be something theme related, because I do have that as well if I reconfigure to total original fortis theme.

infortis

Hello,

1. That page is still in the demo but there’s just no link: There are also:

2. We remember about this issue. This is some browser-specific CSS conflict (CSS transitions are sometimes buggy in different browsers). We’re working on it.

Best regards

I’m trying to remove the category title on the category page, but I cannot find a view.phtml for category anymore. Removing/uncommenting .category-title h1 {} in styles.css has no effect.

How do I do this?

infortis

Hello,

Removing CSS doesn’t remove HTML. Try this:

.category-title {
    display: none;
}

Kind regards

I’m trying to use the CloudZoom component on images that I have in my CMS articles without much luck. I am wondering if I have to include the JQuery script that is present on the product pages? If so, where should I include this and what exactly should I include?

infortis

Hello,

1. CloudZoom plugin is only designed for product pages. To use it in on other pages, you would need a lot of customization, unfortunately we don’t have any ready solution for that.

2. This is the jQuery lightbox plugin which is used in this theme: http://www.jacklmoore.com/colorbox/

You can use the same lightbox on other pages. But by default it is only loaded on product page (for better performance) so you would need to customize the theme to load the plugin on other pages and initialize it for your custom images.

Colorbox plugin is added via layout file of the CloudZoom module: app\design\frontend\fortis\default\layout\infortis_cloudzoom.xml

Info about Colorbox usage can be found on Colorbox website.

Kind regards

I just uploaded the latest fortis them 2.3.1, upgrading from 2.3.0.

Only change visible is that I lost space below the top links (account, login, cart) in the header (accept on the checkout page).

The header looks much better with space between those links and the menu. I used to look good now it doesn’t. I tested on firefox, chrome and explorer on my test server. Didn’t make the upgrade live. How can I add space between the links with Icons and the menu. Right now they touch. I have both icons and words in the links part.

infortis

Hello,

That space can be now controlled in admin panel:
System > Configuration > Theme Design > Header-Top/Header-Primary > Additional Spacing

Kind regards

Hi

I have an issue with the column blocks, I want to remove the right block. I have disabled the following blocks, however the block is still present but empty. How do I remove the block, so there is only 3 columns on the product page.

block_right_top block_right_bottom

infortis

Hello,

You need to apply proper page layout (“1 column”) for your products.

This is not them related, you can set it in on product edit page. Under Catalog > Manage Products select a product, open the Design tab and set the Page Layout.

Of course, you can update that filed in all products at once: use Update Attributes action in the Actions drop-down list under Catalog > Manage Products.

Kind regards

I’ve got an extra internal link working in the menu using this code

  • Sample Internal Link
  • Link looks great. Now is there a way to put children links under this? So I could have say “Hats” as the Link on the Menu bar and when it’s hovered over it says “women” “children” etc. I looked in the guide it’s probably there but I didn’t find it yet.

    2. Is there a way that I can make the background of the custom internal link a different color so it stands out…I’ve seen other sites do this for clearance items and I’m thinking about doing this also.

    infortis

    Hello,

    1. You would need to copy the HTML of the drop-down block of the menu and use the same markup to create your custom drop-down.

    2. Custom colors inside your custom content can be easily applied with inline CSS. E.g.

    <li style="background-color:red;">Sample Internal Link</li>

    Your theme says that you support Google Fonts ? but Google fonts only support the heading not the whole site WHY ?

    infortis

    Hello,

    By design. And also, most of the Google Fonts is not good to display standard text. But we’re planning to add more control over font settings in next updates.

    If you want you can easily apply Google Font to the whole site with custom CSS. Enable custom.css in theme admin and add this inside that file:

    body {
       font-family: "Open Sans", Arial, sans-serif;
    }

    Replace “Open Sans” with the name of the Google Font which you enabled in theme admin panel.

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    Are you guys available for Custom work now?

    Thanks

    infortis

    Hello,

    Unfortunately we don’t offer customization services at the moment.

    Kind regards

    Hi Infortis,

    For a client of ours we have prepared some mayor theme customizations. Improvements include:

    • changing the header by moving the toplinks up to the header-top
    • bringing down the search box for better visibility
    • changing the style of the main-menu
    • restyling the product stickers
    • adding SKU below the product name

    Here’s a preview of what the theme looks like after our customization:

    We are now ready to put this new look online for our client. But we see that you have a new update planned for March, including some improvements to the brand module that our client might be looking for. Does this include adding the brand logo to a two column product page layout?

    If yes, then we prefer to wait to put the customizations online. Of course all customizations were done according to best practice in a custom sub-theme, but we did modify some theme files (which we would need to check again after an update).

    What would be an estimated date of release for the new update?

    infortis

    Hello,

    Yes, this change will be included. ETA is end of March.

    To move display brand in any place of the product page just use this line:
    echo $this->getChildHtml('product_secondary_top_placeholder');

    Place it anywhere you need in app\design\frontend\fortis\default\template\catalog\product\view.phtml

    Kind regards

    I’ve got a problem with the prices not showing up on product pages at http://datasolv.com.mt/magento – they show up fine in search, but not on the details page.

    infortis

    Hello,

    It is caused by some changes you made or extensions you installed. You have “Call for Price” instead price – this isn’t how this theme or Magento works out of the box.

    Kind regards

    Hello, I am interested in your theme and I saw this demo/layout design – http://demo.infortis-themes.com/fortis/en/ Where can I buy this exact layout? Thank you

    infortis

    Hello,

    This is old version (Fortis 1.x). Theme was modified and improved, current version demo can be found here:

    Hi, what is the main difference in your two magento templates? which is the easier to customize? Are they basically 2 different setups or is one more advanced? many thanks. Oh just want to add that responsive functions are important to me.

    infortis

    Hello,

    Thank you for showing interest in our themes. Features in both themes are almost the same, differences are mostly in design settings. The code is very similar and in many parts is almost the same in both themes. The quality is the same. Both themes use the same modules for the menu, slideshow, brands and product page zoom, so the codebase is almost the same.

    Kind regards

    Hallo,

    we love the theme, but want to change the image column width on product page down to grid12-3. Your config validation in system configuration didn’t let us do that. We had to change line 427-437 in the file app/code/local/Infortis/Fortis/etc/system.xml from:

    Line 429: <comment>Specify value in grid units ( between 4 and 8 ).</comment> Line 423: <validate>validate-number validate-number-range number-range-4-8</validate>

    to this code:

    Line 429: <comment>Specify value in grid units ( between 3 and 8 ).</comment> Line 423: <validate>validate-number validate-number-range number-range-3-8</validate>

    I guess changing this file isn’t update safe. Is there recommended way to change this validation in Magento backend to these values and be update safe like creating subthemes or submodules?

    Thank you, Timm

    infortis

    Hello,

    You can safely replace number-range-4-8 with number-range-3-8. We will add this change in the next update (to make this element more flexible).

    How would I go about adding the Ultra Mega Menu to the sidebar via XML?

    infortis

    Hello,

    You don’t need to do this via XML, it can be easily done in sidebar menu settings. Since version 2.1.0 you can enable sidebar menu via admin panel, individually for: category view, home page, CMS pages, product pages (choose between left or right sidebar)

    Hi infrontis.

    I am a rooky in eshop. I know nothing about web-programming and a few months ago, concepts like “site”, “template”, “theme”, “CMS”, etc were mixed up in my mind.

    I have a site developed in drupal that has a basic eshop in it, but nothing like the one I see in the demos. I have managed to customize it though, using the template’s features – am I making any sense up to this point?

    Now I am going to separate the informal site from the eshop, so I need a theme to make an amazing web-store.

    I have examined the demos and I like this theme. The things that I like most is the modern look & feel and the ability for customization.

    I have a couple questions though before I buy:

    1. What is the difference of Fortis vs Ultimo?

    2. Does Fortis support wholesale pricelists? Meaning a registered user of the site, can be granted a different pricelist from the retail pricelist which is for everyone. 3 wholesales pricelists should be enough. I don’t know if this is a feature that must be customized from Magento. I’m not familliar with it.

    3. How easily an item catalogue/pricelist can be exported in .PDF, .XLS or .XML formats? How customizable is this list?

    4. Can an item list be imported from excel?

    5. Is there any feature to export certain items to ebay or amazon?

    Thank you for your time

    infortis

    Hello,

    Thank you for showing interest in our theme.

    1. Features in both themes are almost the same, differences are mostly in design settings.
    2. – 5. It’s all not related to the theme, these are Magento features.

    So it would be the best for you if you install Magento on your server (it’s 100% free) to test it for a while and check if it suits your needs, before you buy the theme.

    Magento is very popular so you can find tons of useful tutorials and articles on the web. Here are some resources for start:

    Thank you very much. I’ll ruther prefer to start using magento with your template instead of studying first. I have no time for studies. You have covered me.
