By the way, if anyone needs to figure out how to add their own background image like I was trying to figure out how to do, you need to edit the includes/functions/extra functions/genesis.php file. The way I do it, you also need to select “none” under the background image in the genesis configuration in the admin. On line 45 and 46, there is this code:

if($bg==’none’){ $style .= ‘body { background: #ffffff; }’;

What I did is change it to this: background-image: url(http://your web site/includes/templates/genesis/images/background.jpg); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; background-position: center top; background-clip: border-box; background-origin: padding-box; background-size: 100% 100%; }’;

if($bg=='none'){
    $style .= 'body {background-color: transparent;

And you will need to upload the image in the directory you are pointing to also. I got this code somewhere on the internet somewhere so I can’t give due credit, but what it does is stretch the background image full width.

well the comment thing screwed the code all up. Ill try again, after body change to:

{background-color: transparent; background-image: url(http://your web site/includes/templates/genesis/images/background.jpg); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; background-position: center top; background-clip: border-box; background-origin: padding-box; background-size: 100% 100%; }

I have run into a bug with this template which I am at a loss as too how to remedy, as it is not showing up in my logs. When I add a product from the listing of products when viewing a category, by entering a number next to an item and selecting the “add selected products to cart” button, I run into a Quanity Units Error. Actually I get one error for every product that I DO NOT select to add to cart, example:

Please correct the following: ... Quantity Units errors – 5ft Brownell String Loop D loop Archery Release Cord RED WHITE A Add to Cart:

Please correct the following: ... Quantity Units errors – 5ft Brownell String Loop D loop Archery Release Cord CAMO Add to Cart:

...These items I DID NOT select from the list, I selected a different product which does in fact add to cart successfully, but it seems like it is trying to add every other item in the list as well. I am not sure what is going on. Any help I would appreciate immensely! If anyone is reading this and knows what the problem is please let me know, as it doesn’t seem to be the most timely support from this author.

where is the page about “Contact Us” ?I want to add visitor’s telephone number and company name in the form.

Hi There, Still using this theme as it’s a really good theme.

However just 1 problem I can’t find any precise instructions to make the slider height 250px instead of 490px. tried reading a bootstrap link you provided but it doesn’t make any sense to me, some help would be gratefully received. If i can sort this problem I’ll be happy :)

Kindest Regards

Sent a contact form question but have had a response yet. It’s been a few weeks. The zoom function on the product images has quit working. It was working before but for some reason it’s not now working. I have not yet upgraded the cart from 1.5.3 to 1.5.4 so would like to get this debugged before upgrading.

please respond.

Just purchased and installed this great template and have been working on it all day. So far so good except a conflict with a 3rd party attribute image swatch module which we are hoping to sort out with their support soon http://www.eloshclothing.com/men-t-shirt/men-t-shirt-aye-shes-mine Is there a way to use this template at full width instead of boxed? Thank you. arat@crystalflorida.com

Well my friend, your service sucks. Other template authors reply us in minutes. This is totally wrong!

I am trying to add a link to my forum under the Information section in the footer. Can you please guide me on how I can do this?

I am disappointed with lack of response as well. I had loved this template at purchase, but in trying to customize with questions unanswered, I may have to toss this all together. i noticed some of you had similar questions with email responses from developer. If anyone can help and pass along info, much appreciated. If the developer would respond, that would be ideal. Questions on following:

1: How to maintain slider images on home page, even when page loads on small smartphone layout?

2: How to disable black tooltips?

3: How to disable reviews from products?

4: Where can I delete the Zen Cart title text that appears with every page, even though I add my own page titles?

5: How can I add images to main categories to compliment the text?

6: On main page, how can I remove the buy now button for new products? Can this section also be replaced all together with text?

7: For latest products, can the grey background color be changed? Is it in the CSS?

8: I discovered that some images not in this template are grabbed from the default template. Others, however, I cannot find. For example, where is the “x” that closes the popup enlarged image? And where is the magnifying glass that triggers the popup?

Many thanks, hope to be able to use this template.

does this work with 1.5.4?

Really disappointed with no developer response. I’ve managed to resolve a few issues, but still in need of help for following:

1: How to maintain slider images on home page, even when page loads on small smartphone layout?

2: How to disable black tooltips?

3: On main page, how can I remove the buy now button for new products? Can this section also be replaced all together with text?

This template should no longer be for sale if the developer refuses to answer us! It has so many sales and such potential. Is it that hard to respond to questions you’ve already answered privately for others?

If anyone else has input, much appreciated!!

So its been 3 months since the author has replied to a comment here…!?

I have a question and Im hoping you are around Sammy :)

I want to change the way images zoom, I want people to be able to enlarge a product image by clicking the main image. Disabling the hover zoom function, can this be done please?

Im able to do some coding if you give some explanation of where to do the changes.
