I just installed this theme, and when i install the slider plugin it breaks concrete 5. I have uninstalled the slider plugin, but concrete 5 is still broken. Specifically the ability to edit pages. The edit button no has content displayed such as publish page on hover over. The abilit to edit the content is gone, no ability to add blocks. I just purchased and downloaded today, so I assume I have the most recent version.

Hi ArchiPants,

I just installed another instance of the theme to test out if I can reproduce what you wrote. There were no errors and everything works smooth.

I could check your broken installation to verify what happened. If you wish so, please contact me through my profile and I will see what I can do. You could also try to delete everything and set up a fresh, untouched installation. Maybe your problem will be gone afterwards.

Cheers, BeConcrete

Thanks for your assistance in getting the theme working. A clean install of 5.6.1.2 seems to do the trick

Great looking theme that has a lot of options! My main concern is that it seems slow. Is it the server, the setup or the theme that is making it slow? Is it non cached? Have you tried any of the speed improvement options that are available to C5?

BeConcrete

Hi, it’s the server.

One more question. Is there a way to show portfolios only to specific accounts that are logged in? I have a photographer client, and he would want to allow his clients to login and view their images.

BeConcrete

Yes it is possible through the permission system of Concrete5

One last question. I noticed that when I click on a image to open it, it shows the image, but does not have a forward/back to move between other images in the portfolio. Is that possible?

BeConcrete

Hi alinford,

this is not possible through the current options in the theme. Of course it is possible to change that behavior with some knowledge of HTML and JavaScript.

Hi BeConcrete,

Making great progress with the theme…it’s great. I’ve moved our site to our host and noticed something that was not happening when it was on my local machine. Currently, when I click on our logo in the header, it simply links to whatever page I’m on. When it was on my local machine, it would always link to the home page (which is what I woud like to happen).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

BeConcrete

Hi jcushman,

please open the file /packages/grandeur/themes/grandeur/elements/header.php

and add a / in line 151 before the <?php echo DIR_REL; ?>

I have tried uploading the zipped file to cpanel and all i get is “fakepath” and then when I refresh Dashboard I see No Name, No Name repeated 4 times under Themes section. I don’t see the theme. What is going wrong?

BeConcrete

Hi, please be sure to read the documentation and follow it step by step.

To install the theme, please unzip the download file and upload the theme into the packages folder.

If you still have problems, please contact me through my profile to give you further assistance.

Hi Hi BeConcrete,

Love the theme, I have one small issue. I have installed a fresh C5 with no content and have installed the theme, slider and dummy content as per the documentation.

I have noticed that the blog does not seem to work. I get the following error:-

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /var/sites/w/*/public_html/packages/grandeur/blocks/page_list/templates/grandeur_blog_index.php on line 1

You can see this live here: http://goo.gl/oXnNT

I have tried php version 5.2 and php 5.3 with the same result.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Hi BeConcrete,

Sorry for the double post (TF don’t seem to allow anyone to edit comments).

I have also noticed another similar issue on the shortcodes page:-

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /var/sites/w/*/public_html/packages/grandeur/blocks/lightbox/view.php on line 1

You can see this here: http://goo.gl/pM98w

Hi,

please try to reupload these two files. It seems like they were not properly uploaded. If that does not fix your issues, please contact me again through my profile for further guidance.

Good morning,

How can i duplicate the clients block to create a new partners block?

I want to use the clients block with other purpose, what can i do ?

regards, Uebyou

BeConcrete

Hi uebyou,

there is no way to categorize clients to have multiple client blocks with different entrys. Every client block will show the same clients.

Hey BeConcrete,

really nice work. This is an easy to handle theme with lots of features. It’s worth the money :-) Would be nice to have the GoogleMaps block displaying everything well. The zoom bar is broken and if you klick on an item (restaurant etc) the info box shadow is not shown well.

Regards

One more question. There is a page list (Blog what is new) at the start page. I think a blog list has to view the latest posts automatically. At this time you have to ad all pages manually – that means more unnecessary work. Any chance to have that as a custom template?

Regards

Torsten

BeConcrete

Hi 53nord,

thank you for your comments. We will check the GoogleMaps issue and add a custom template for your needs really soon.

Hi BeConcrete,

I just purchased your (great) theme Grandeur, but have a problem with colors. Could you perhaps help me?

The buttons of the contact form and comment form don’t seem to change colors when using the color picker that changes all the site’s colors. Could you tell me how to change the color of these buttons? ( or perhaps this is something that should be changed in the theme?)

Thanks in advance, Kind regards, DMR

BeConcrete

Hi,

the buttons are from twitter bootstrap. So if you want to change the color, you have to change the classname.

A list of available buttons: http://twitter.github.io/bootstrap/base-css.html#buttons

For the contact form, open

blocks/form/controller.php

and change the classname to your wishes at line 70.

For the comments, open

packages/grandeur/blocks/guestbook/templates/grandeur_comments.php

and change the classname to your wishes at line 161.

Hello be concrete,

Great theme indeed. I want to solve one problem. When i put the form block with date field the name of that field dont appear, like other fields like radio buttons and others. There are anyway to solve this?

Another question: i work with whmcs and i searched for the grandeur them for whmcs. I ask you if you can make grandeur t whmcs or if is possible. Thanks in advance… Luis

BeConcrete

Hi, this is currently not included, since in the theme on forms, the name is always in the textfields.

It will be added in a future update.

I am not able to convert the theme into another cms. I’m only creating concrete5 themes.

Hello Be concrete,

Can you tell me how i make the form to stay fine with date field and checkbox buttons all complete and visble?

If you go to http://www.uebyou.com/pt/uebyou/recrutamento/ you cant see the name before date field and cant see the name before the checklist.

Thanks in advance,

I wan to break the client list to multiple lines. Is there a way to set a range of clients to show? Currently it looks like you can show one or all.

BeConcrete

Hi,

you can set the number of clients shown through the blog. There is no way in the theme as it comes, to show the clients in multiple lines.

To change the order of the clients, just drag and drop them in the dashboard.

Hello. I like working with the theme, but I have a problem with the portfolio – whenever i place Lightbox Images onto a page which also has a porfolio-media image on it, the presentation of this page in the portfolio is not working anymore. It seems like it is not finding the right image?

My other question: is there a way to mimic a portfolio? I would love to have images which have the hover effect and the link symbol without using the portfolio itself. Just as linked images – any chance to do something like this?

BeConcrete

Hi, I can’t reproduce that behavior you mention.

Also, there is no way to mimic a portfolio.

Hello, We just purchased the theme and applied it to a C5 site (5.6.1.2) with existing content and using the default theme.

The content disappears from the pages when switching from the default theme to Grandeur. also, left-sidebar pages appear as full pages even though the left sidebar type is selected.

Thank you for your help.

BeConcrete

Hello egsinc,

since the grandeur theme has different names as areas and different page types, the content will not be shown. The names of the areas have to be the same names in both themes.

You can manually fix that by replacing the names of the old areas in the database to the new ones of the grandeur theme. Please be sure to backup your database before changes!!

To do that, check out the table “Areas” and the column “arHandle”. Also check out the tables CollectionVersionAreaLayouts and CollectionVersionBlocks.

For example:

In the default theme you had the area with the name “Full Content” and in the grandeur theme it is only “Content”.

Now search the column arHandle and change every “Full Content” to “Content”.

Regarding your left-sidebar problem: The page type does not exist in grandeur. But it is still installed since the default theme of c5 installed it.

If you want to use the grandeur left sidebar, there are two options. The first is to change the design of all left-sidebar pages to the corresponding grandeur design.

The other way would be to change the filename of /grandeur/themes/grandeur/sidebar_left.php to /grandeur/themes/grandeur/left-sidebar.php

Cheers,

BeConcrete

Thank you for the response. Is it possible to change the area names in Grandeur instead? We would like the site to stay consistent with the standard implementation. Thank you.

BeConcrete

Hi,

this is also possible, but it can lead to less functionality of the portfolio and blog. Be sure to also change the script in all blog/portfolio files. In some parts I am directing the script to the areas. In these parts, you also need to change the names to the new ones.

Hey on the contact page the company information is below the form, instead of to the right of the form. How do I fix?

Thanks

BeConcrete

Hello adgower,

sorry for the late response! Please use the layout feature from concrete5 to solve your problem! Click on the area in edit mode and then add a layout with two columns. Hope this will fix your issue.
