Koev,

Can you send me the code and instructions on how to remove the product image appearing under the refined search:

http://dimitarkoev.com/galka/index.php?route=product/category&path=60

We’ve tried to make that 100×100px category image a button but it defaults to 940×260px banner size when clicked, making the button huge when the corresponding category is opened…

Consequently, when we use a proper 940×260 image for the category image, it shrinks the image to fit inside the 100×100 image…

Can we either remove the 100×100 images from the site completely OR find a way to choose one image for each instance?

Many thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello OIGBusiness,

it looks like I didn’t thought enough on this as the menu is using the same image. I’ll rework the menu to use a square image and release an update later today.

Default-user

Ok great looking forward to the update release. Thanks!

Default-user

We uploaded Galka as per your instructions and now we are encountering a new error:

http://bit.ly/19VzqNa

Please advise. Thanks.

theAlThemist

It looks like there are missing files in your installation. At least the custom controllers are not there. Also, the update is still not ready for the fix we discussed. I would advise to re-upload the whole theme pack and make sure to confirm the files replacement during upload.

Default-user

We re-uploaded however, there are new errors with the Galka’s featured.tpl

Any suggestions?

theAlThemist

Could you please send me an e-mail with temporary admin and FTP access to check this for you?

theAlThemist

Actually I can’t see featured module enabled on your site.

Default-user

We made a few changes but it’s still there. We are waiting to get the update from you to remove the featured images.

Any idea when that will be?

theAlThemist

I would need a bit more time as I am making some more improvements to the theme in overall.

Default-user

Do you have an idea when the update will be released?

theAlThemist

Yes. It will be today afternoon.

theAlThemist

Hello OIGBusiness,

the update is already uploaded and waiting for review. Should be available for download any moment. You can check the theme demo and see how it looks.

Default-user

Demo looks good however we are encountering the same issue as before… How do we match your settings so our site displays as yours?

theAlThemist

It’s my fault. I forgot to update the documentation too. Use square image for categories. The size could be any number as long as it’s square but not smaller than 200×200 px as it’s the size of the image in mega menu. For the demo I am using 200×200 px image and 150×150 px setting in System>Settings>Image>Category Image Size.

I’ll update the documentation immediately. Thank you for your feedback.

Default-user

How do you get the text to show up next to the category pic as it does in yours? Our text defaults to underneath it and it looks funny as shown from the screenshot from our site.

theAlThemist

Did you uploaded all files? There are changes in category.tpl, all stylesheet files and GALKA_menu.php

theAlThemist

If you uploaded all files inside catalog/view/theme/GALKA folder everything should be OK. It looks like you’re still using the old category.tpl

Default-user

Uploaded the files, thanks you! However, we still have an issue…

Galka is trying to load an image 347×96; this is not what the category image is set to in our settings (200×200px).

Your menu: http://bit.ly/1iNEKUA Image size: http://bit.ly/1fkCxAp Our menu: http://bit.ly/19Eur48 Image size: http://bit.ly/1hO0bXY Our site: http://bit.ly/1hNviTL

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello OIGBusiness,

could you please try to re-download the updated theme files and upload them on your server. It looks like for some reason you’re still running the old files. May be something wrong with the archive. Let me know if the problem still persists with the latest files.

Default-user

We did as you suggested now we are receiving another error…

This is what appears above our blog pages:

Any ideas how to fix this?

theAlThemist

Hello OIGBusiness,

did you made any changes to the server settings or theme files? That’s not normal and never happened to anyone. Looks like a server setting incompatibility issue. May be you should contact your hosting support team.

Default-user

Can we re-upload the theme to fix the issue?

theAlThemist

Hello OIGBusiness,

at least it would not harm. You can try, but as I said, it looks like a server settings incompatibility. Did you changed something lately? Something on hosting panel, VQMOD version, something on htaccess file?

Default-user

Thank you for the heads up, I’ll ask around if someone did and get back to you regarding this.

Default-user

The homepage slider is set for dimensions of 1920×580 to compensate for displaying on all platforms – That is quite wide and adjusting the slider size to to be less wide via Galkas custom menu defaults the slider to display left justified… How can the image be centered? We’ve tried trimming the image size but it still gets left justified.

Can you help us with this?

theAlThemist

I am afraid it can’t. It’s meant and built to be full-width slideshow. If you need a smaller one – use the default slideshow module.

Hi, what’s the differences between this and universum? Need some comparison on purchase decision Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello solarWave,

there are differences in design. Other than that both themes are pretty similar in terms of functionality. Galka have a bit more optimized code and few additional features like AJAX search suggestions, sticky menu, different menu structure, custom sliding boxes module. Also Galka requires VQMod installed to run properly while UniVersum doesn’t.

Hi Koev,

1. How can I remove Images from refine search? And display Refine Search similar to Opencart default refine search.

2. How can I Display: List or Grid? Similar to Opencart default.

I´m purchasing GALKA Theme and need these functions.

Many Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello Electricon. When you purchase the theme I’ll give you instructions on the requested modifications.

Default-user

Many Thanks…

Default-user

Hi Koev, I made the purchase today. I have some extension modules I want to integrate to GALKA?

1. How can I remove Images from refine search? And display Refine Search similar to Opencart default refine search.

2. How can I Display: List or Grid? Similar to Opencart default. (#image)

- Quotation System - Share Wish List - FAQ - Store Locator - One Step Checkout

If you have time to look at this. It would mean alot.

Many Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello Electricon,

The explanations wouldn’t be short and easy, so better send me an e-mail using the form in my profile page and I’ll give you instructions on the changes.

However, keep in mind that the theme CAN’T display grid/list. It’s not meant to have this feature.

For all other modules integration, basic install rules apply and if they don’t change the layout everything should be OK. However, I would STRONGLY NOT RECOMMEND using a One Step Checkout module with ANY theme.

Hello Koev,

I hope you can help me, i use ajax onepage check-out module, in the checkout page the Quantity diapear and show up in the left corner on the breadcrumb position.in the default template everything is oke. How can i fix this see www.infowijn.nl(make a fake order and you will see.

Thanks Marco

theAlThemist

Hello Marco,

it looks like the quantity is not the biggest problem there. You would need to rework the whole TPL according to the theme layout.

As for the quantity:

Add this style to the custom CSS field in the theme control module:

.cart .quantity {
    display: table-cell !Important;
    left: 0;
    position: relatvive !Important;
    width: auto !Important;
}
Default-user

Hello Koev, I put this in the stylesheet.css(galka)without result or do i put this anywhere else.

Regards marco

theAlThemist

Add this style to the “custom CSS field in the theme control module”

Default-user

Hello Koev, I lose the thread do we talk about the stylesheet in Galka, maybe is better i send you the sheet and replace it it will be acadabra( i`m not a wizard) for me now regards marco

theAlThemist

Hello Marco,

no, we don’t talk about ANY stylesheet. At least not me. :)

I am talking about the Custom styles section of the Galka control module under Extensions>Modules in admin! :)

Default-user

Hello Koev, now it`s a little bit clear for me but maybe it will be easy if i give you access to admin i don`t now where i put regards Marco

Hello Koev, i send you a pm regards Marco

Good afternoon.

I am having some doubts regarding: Galka – OpenCart theme Responsive Professional

1 – When you got dowload 2 files and was in doubt in which to install?
  • NO PRICE FILTER VERSION
  • PRICE FILTER VERSION

2 – After installation editing for Portuguese-Brazil?

theAlThemist

Hello alexang23,

The folder names are self explanatory – there are version of the theme with AJAX Price Filter and version without it. Use the version with the filter if you don’t use the default filter module or third party layered filter module. Otherwise you must use the non-price-filter version as those modules conflicts with the AJAX filter.

As for the translation – yes, it can be done. You would need to copy and translate all language files that comes with the theme in the portuguese language folder keeping the structure intact.

hi koev, i have purchased your 2 themes. galka and universum. both is having issues with IE8. i am using it my local environment and has not made it live yet. Please open your demo link in IE8. on the product detail page, add to cart button is not working and footer is not visible. please post the solution of this.

theAlThemist

Hello ujjawal_77,

First – it looks like you never purchased those themes!

Second – both themes work fine in IE8, just a bit slower and without all effects, due to the IE8 not supporting CSS3.

Hello joeluvnyc,

I am not really sure what do you mean, but I can see the information links are not present in footer. Did you made any changes to the footer. OR installed an extension that modifies the footer? The Information links are all presented in the header menu and work fine so it’s not the script. Could you please send me an e-mail with temporary admin access and FTP access details to check this for you?

Hi, in the admin panel, images that I uploaded to “description” won’t show up. It’s showing up in the live site but not in the admin “description” tab. Can you please help? Thanks

theAlThemist

I am afraid no. The OpenCart developers changed the CKEditor and the new version doesn’t show the images or anything different than text. I am afraid it’s not theme related.
