Is there any way to add an Instagram logo to the bottom right corner of the home page?

sammycorp

on tpl_footer.php

You can add below code :
<li><a href="http://instagram.com/[your name]" class="social" target="_blank"><i class="icon-instagram" /></a></li>

hi, I have installed the theme but This template will conflict with my SEO plugin, my SEO plugin ” ultimate_seo_urls ” Static URL is very important. Tens of thousands of a website URL that change may produce what kind of damage.

how to do ? help me .

sammycorp

The only file that may conflict with the seo url plugin is html_output.php Please merge both file (themes file and module file) properly.

Hi Sammy, Need your help again. How do we disable the horizontal scroller on the featured products on main page? I’d like the products to show up in grid layout (a 4×4 or something). Any idea?

hi, thank for you wounderful theme. but, How to control the Number of products list grid displayed per row.

Default-user
franco9 Purchased

3 products per row now, i want 4 or 5 products per row, grid display.

sammycorp
On zen cart default theme you can set how much products per row, but on this themes I intentionally didn’t use that option because of “design aspect”. Anyway, to achieve 4 or 5 products per row, you have to edit the css. Edit stylesheet_genesis.css, find this selector.
.productsGridWrapper .gridItem
As you can see there, I’m using 31% for the width (1/3), you may change it to 22%-24% (1/4) or 17%-19% (1/5). Don’t forget to edit the other rule for the responsiveness.

Good Luck

previously there is contact us in your demo whichi is instead of “Buy Now”, How could I add “Contact US” botton to the file?

sammycorp

Yeah, there was a buyer who ask for a “Showcase Mode” example. Just go to Admin->Configuration->My Store->Store Status

Default-user

Thank you for your reply. But another question: How I could make “Contact US” botton instead of “Buy Now” botton in product list page?

sammycorp

Admin->Customer Details->Customer Shop Status – View Shop and Prices

Hi sammy how can i make the home page products picture much more big, i want to set it to 220*220 and set it in the image set but it seems useless. http://www.vinylgraphicsigns.co.uk/
sammycorp
It’s controlled by a javascript code that you can find it on tpl_modules_specials_default.php, tpl_modules_featured_products.php and tpl_modules_whats_new.php. Edit below properties to match you need.
itemWidth: 234
Increase it maybe until around 280.

Good luck

Are you sure that respond.js already embeded on your site. If you view your page source, you should see this
<script type='text/javascript' src='includes/templates/genesis/jscript/respond.js'></script>

YOR DEMO SITE IS BROKEN NOW.

sammycorp

I see that you haven’t activate the CSS buttons so the site is using Image for the button (continue, checkout, etc). Please enable the CSS Button from Admin->Configuration->Layout Setting

Hello, I have an issue with only my product pages not carouseling images, the zoom function does not work either.

Also, my “new products” footer is not updating.

Thank you for the template! Love love love it! _/

Default-user

I am also having a hard time displaying grid instead of rows on all pages.

Default-user

These issues only occur for me with this template.

sammycorp

Hi, Are you facing the same problem on my demo site? What is your site url?

Default-user

No, it is only my site. I’ll email you my URL. Thank you.

Default-user

I also just noticed my category drop downs are not working on product pages.

sammycorp

Hi, I’ve checked your site. It has a lot of customization. Actually, that is a javascript error. The page called jQuery twice, 1.7.1 and 1.4.4, it makes some js function like zoom, colorbox, footer products not working. Also please remove the slimbox code too.

Good Luck

Default-user

Thank you! I tired just removing the 1.4.4, and then things got crazy. I basically had to uninstall all new mods I uploaded after installing this theme, then had to uninstall this theme, then reinstall this theme (which only took 10 minutes because this theme was so quick to install and edit). Now it’s beautiful again!! _ Thank you!!!!!! <3

Hello again, I would like to add a linked image in the header logo area under the search bar, how would I do this?
I also want to edit the font style of the category drop down tab, just the top categories, not the font in drop down subcategories, if possible.
And lastly, I would like to edit the font coloring of the facebook like box.

Thanks again for making this awesome template!!

sammycorp

If you want to edit header area. Please edit tpl_header.php on common directory. If you want to edit the category dropdown style, edit stylesheet_genesis.css and edit the rules of this selector :

.navbar .nav > li > a

Hi Sammycorp, How can I modify the link on the manufacturers’ images on the homepage in ex. /index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=1?

Hi,

It’s a manufacturer’s url. You can edit it from Admin->Catalog->Manufacturers

Hello Sammy,

How do I add EZ Pages??? I added one called about us and enabled it to show on footer but it did not show.

Also how do I add text to the about us widget on the bottom left of the homepage?

ez pages is blank no pages there.

Thank you.

elevatedcolor.

sammycorp

EZ Pages on footer is located next to the Copyright text on the footer. I am not sure why you can’t add one.

About us widget on footer is controlled from admin(Configuration->Genesis Themes Configuration). Make sure you already upload the genesis_install.sql

Thanks

Also, I can’t find anywhere to change the company logo. How do I change the logo???

sammycorp

To change the logo you have to upload image named “logo.png” to includes/templates/genesis/images/logo.png

Hi Sammy

Please ignore my email yesterday to your gmail account – I loaded Genesis OK on my second attempt, and it looks great.

Like elevated color above, I’m struggling to change the company logo header from the default Genesis. I’ve located the logo.png file, and overwritten it with my own slightly larger logo picture. That clearly isn’t the only thing I need to change, because the website still shows the Genesis logo, albeit magnified to a larger size? Help please!

Paul

sammycorp

Are you sure that’s it’s not because of browser cache. Please let me know your site url, so i can check it.

Thanks

When I went back to my website later, the new logo had appeared! I don’t think it was a browser cache issue, because I did refresh the page a couple of times after uploading my new logo image. So I guess perhaps there was some sort of implementation delay on my webhosting server??? Here’s my temporary website url: www.streetfinewines.coolpedals.co.uk

I have had one other “funny” which has happened a couple of times, but then mysteriously mended itself. After doing a sorting list of my 4 wines by price, the prices displayed on the website all re-set to 0. But the next time I logged into the website, everything appeared to have re-set again to show the original prices. Weird! – have you any ideas what might have caused this?

Thanks again for a beautiful template – I really love the responsive behaviour that automatically adapts the display for PCs/tablets/smartphones!

Paul

sammycorp

I am not quite sure but I still think that it’s cache. Should clear browser cache when testing your site.

Thanks Sammy, no problems with this now.

Some new questions please, regarding the header section housing the company logo.

1) I’ve tried to enlarge the logo by increasing the span from default 6, using dreamweaver on my local machine as the text editor. But I can’t save any changes – I get an access denied message. 2) Assuming I can solve 1) above, if I increase span to say 8, do I need to decrease the span of the right hand search box from 6 to 4 to compensate? 3) Is there an easy way to change the background colour of the header section from white to another colour please?

Thanks for your continued support!

Paul

sammycorp

Hi,

1. Not sure with that. After you edit the file, you just need to upload the file via FTP you can use Filezilla.
2. Yep the total span is 12. 6-6, 4-4-4, 8-4, etc
3. You can edit it from the css files. If you want to tweak the themes. You can use plugin named Firebug (Chrome and Firefox), you can use the Inspector tools.
