Hi There,

Sorry to trouble you but we’ve noticed a small problem with the Genesis theme. We’ve noticed that the drop down menu only shows 8 items. How can we increase that number?

Kindest Regards

Hi,

includes/classes/categories_ul_generator.php

Remove this if you want to show all or edit the “7” to something else :

    if($i==7){
        break;
    }

Thanks

Hi Sammycorp,

Sorry about this but we’ve just noticed that we seem to have a third column on the right side of our website. if you look at this link

http://www.vinylgraphicsigns.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3_10 you can see all the space on the righthand side of the site, it’s forcing the the items into the middle for some reason. We’ve tried everything we can think of but can’t find where the problem is. Have we missed changing something some where?

Kindest Regards

Hi Sammycorp,

Forget that, it was totally my fault, I missed a setting Column Right Status – Global should have been set to “0” not “1”.

Apologies again.

Is there a way to have a “SHOW ALL” link on the very top of the page, same for an “ALL NEW”? Thanx for the great job you did on thsi one!

sammycorp

Hi,

Where did you want to place the link? On the categories menu or on the top section with currencies-languages,register,cart?

Default-user
ZOneDeath Purchased

Both would be best…

Default-user
ZOneDeath Purchased

Did you figure out how to do that yet?

sammycorp

Almost forgot it. Maybe like this, edit includes/templates/genesis/common/tpl_header.php

Add this code :

<li><a href="<?php echo zen_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCTS_NEW); ?>">All New</a></li>

Before this code :
<pre><?php require(DIR_WS_MODULES . 'genesis/currencies.php'); ?></pre>

Cool! thanx! But how do I add a “Show All”, or “All products”?

Default-user

Never-mind, figured it out, it ALL instead of NEW Thanx!

Hi I did a fresh install 1.51 and I put in my Facebook Page ID. I’ve selected the middle widget to be Facebook but it is not pulling any data like on the demo. I also see in the Documents you provide their is a sidebox called socialmedia.php but this does not appear on my install. Has that been removed? Or is that the reason why I’m not pulling in the Facebook feed because that file is missing?

sammycorp

Issues Fixed. Right?

I look for a long time to answer my question.

Sorry, just back. I can’t remembered your question? Did you send an email to me?

the image of the product would 320×240px as I put in the setting of zen-car, but the site is smaller. see puliretutto.com

sammycorp

You have to disable the flexslider itemWidth property on tpl_modules_featured_products.php

There is javascript like this :
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
$(window).load(function() {
    $('#featuredProducts').flexslider({
        namespace: "grey-",
        slideshow: false,
        animation: "slide",
        animationLoop: false,
        pauseOnHover: true,
        controlNav: false,
         prevText: '',
         nextText: '',
        controlsContainer: ".featured-carousel-nav",
        manualControls: ".featured-carousel-wrapper",
        itemWidth: 188
    });
});
--></script>

Remove the itemWidth property. So, it will look like this

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
$(window).load(function() {
    $('#featuredProducts').flexslider({
        namespace: "grey-",
        slideshow: false,
        animation: "slide",
        animationLoop: false,
        pauseOnHover: true,
        controlNav: false,
         prevText: '',
         nextText: '',
        controlsContainer: ".featured-carousel-nav",
        manualControls: ".featured-carousel-wrapper" 
    });
});
--></script>

it’s worse now than before! I was referring to the product page

Default-user

Where can I send screenshots

sammycorp

You said the link is puliretutto.com, I thought that the issue is on main page. Sorry, please revert the change :D

The product image on product page is fluid. The image width follow the container width. If you want to make the image wider, disable the right column. I am sure you will get 320px image width.

Default-user

Where can I change the text color of the modules in the left column by 0088ff to 111 and increase the size

sammycorp

If you use Firefox or Chrome, There is plugin named “Firebug”. You can inspect all the element of your site with that tools. Find : .sidebar-header on stylesheet_genesis.css and change the color and font-size there.

Default-user

Your template changes the registration page in the Italian version is different, there are two fields in more :(

sammycorp

I am sure that the themes use the default registration template. I just style it.

Default-user

The Italian official version of zen-cart I have two fields required by law see noe the registration page of my site

sammycorp

You have to modify it. When I build this themes, I used the standard zen cart 1.5.1, I downloaded it from http://zen-cart.com

LOL..I just realized that maybe you didn’t read the docs completely. The button I used on this themes is using CSS Button. You can activate it from admin : Configuration->Layout Setting->CSS Button

By the way don’t use word “Zencart”, they maybe a company that named “zencart…....” but they are not the “real” Zen Cart team.

Do you know someone that works as freelance and that can fix or help with my web needs?

sammycorp

Yes, you are right. That’s where we change to css button, just choose ‘YES’. I bet they don’t know about Twitter Bootstrap. Quick fix to make the layout full screen is by changing ‘container’ class to ‘container-fluid’.

Maybe I can help, Please give me the details of the task and please send it to my email rather than discuss it here.

About us

Hi, I’ve just installed the Genesis template on Zen-Cart v1.3.9d. There isn’t any About Page in 1.3.9. How then can I insert text into the About Us section in the footer of Genesis? Do I have to install an About Us mod?

Thanks

sammycorp

About Us and the other section on footer is inside footer.php module. Where did you install the themes? What is the url?

Hi Sammy, Just wanted to ask you a big favor - is it possible to change the Menus at the top to display more them 8 levels long – but to display say 13 products long ?

If you go to our webpage below and click on Hardware – it only displays 8 items but we would like to please have 13.

Thanks

Hello Lili,

we can not make the page full screen. If you get some direction from the template provider probably we will be able to do that. Would you be able to help? Thanks. Lilian

sammycorp

You need to edit the width of the bootstrap container. Please read the documentation here : http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/ Anyway, ask them to use Firebug plugin that I mentioned before on email.

Hello there, I have installed this template and everything is working great, but I do have a couple of questions if I may..

Firstly – on the nav menu, is it possible that I can edit the code to allow custom pages to be listed and have the top categories list in a drop down on a custom page link rather than just accross the nav menu bar.

Secondly – when using additional images, the extra images are not being embeded into the zoom function by default, it could be that I have missed something, but if you could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated

Thanks very much

sammycorp

Hi,

1. You can edit the nav menu. The file name is tpl_modules_categories_tabs.php

2. Is it different than on the demo page? What is your site url, maybe I can take a look at it.

Hello, Not sure the emails are getting through support so will post on here… I have this setup as an example of a custom link…

<li><a class="submenu" href="index.php?main_page=categories"><?php echo "Categories"; ?></a></li>

Which works perfect, now if I was to add a custom drop down within this link, I have tried something like…

<li><a class="submenu" href="index.php?main_page=categories"><?php echo "Categories"; ?></a> <ul class="level2"> <?php echo $content; ?> </ul> </li>

Could you possibly advise how I can structure this second level drop down to use the <?php echo $content; ?>

Thank you very much

Hi, I have installed the theme but have noticed that the sidebox called socialmedia.php is not there. I saw someone else comment the same problem but it doesn’t provide a solution. Just wondering how to fix this? Thanks

sammycorp

I decided to remove the socialmedia sidebox because it’s created a lot of http request to facebook, google+ and twitter API that makes your site slow. It’s doesn’t affect anything, you should delete it. Cheers

Is there a way to change the top navigation so that it displays the links to ezpages? And also to get categories sidebox to display on the homepage (it is currently displaying on every page except the homepage).

Thanks
sammycorp
includes/templates/genesis/templates/tpl_modules_categories_tabs.php After this code :
<?php echo $content; ?>
You can add :
<li><a href="bla..bla">bla..bla</a></li>
sammycorp

To enable the sidebox on homepage edit includes/templates/genesis/common/tpl_main_page.php

Just remove this code :
if($this_is_home_page){
      $flag_disable_right = true;
      $flag_disable_left = true;
  }

Hi, I am currently hunting around for a new theme for my zencart install and I like what I see of yours. My concern with any theme of course is that one has to purchase them first, then if it turns out they don’t really do what you had hoped or if the support on them is not good you are stuck buying theme after theme to find the right mix of features and support.

The only thing I would question so far on your theme is can the slider be turned off on the main page?? I realize that’s a big feature for some, but for my customers they are most seniors and would prefer if that slider was NOT there and just the “featured products” was directly under the main menu.

Let me know please.. thanks.

sammycorp

You can disable it from admin. Just remove the HTML code. Thanks
