Hi,

Could you please take a look at my site (will email it).

There are issues using IE9 …

1. The grey bars (as seen in Firefox) around the Horizontal Categories list are not there

2. ‘Refine Search’ categories (when clicking Top Level categories) show up vertically in IE9 but correctly Horizontally in Firefox

3. Category list of products… Add to cart button and compare etc are out of line

4. When adding product to cart basket at top of page shows still 0 and if you hover over it the popup box tries to cover whole page. Count is ok if you refresh page but hovering over it still the popup cart does not show and tries to fill whole page.

Thanks. Jazz

Hi Jazz,

Thanks for pointing this out. I have checked your website and can confirm that these are theme related. I will make an update to this theme ASAP and it will be available to download from themeforest.

Kind regards

Hi Thomas,

Thanks again for your response. Another question:

Your online installation guide does not make mention of a database. However, OpenCart’s documentation at http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=documentation/documentation makes specific reference to a database.

I am thinking of getting their manual – would there manual take precedence over your installation guide?

Hi Paul,

This is just an opencart theme, so first you need to have opencart up and running. So yeah, first follow the procudure on opencart website, and once you have sore up and running (using opencart default theme) you’re ready to install custom theme.

Kind regards

Hi,

I would like to add a menu item with the route=information/news

Can you please point me in the right direction :)

OK I thing I figured it out

Added line 375 in

catalog/view/theme/granule/template/common/header.tpl

To read :

<li><a href="/index.php?route=information/news/">News</a></li>

it seems to be working nicely

Last thing to do is to add a splash/landing on first lunch.

(An idea for an extension creation :)) :bigwink:

tomsky

Hi,

Yes, that’s exactly what you had to do :)

I don’t know about such extension, please have a look at opencart.com website hopefully you’ll find something that meets your requirements.

Kind regards

Thomas

divemasterza

Thank you for the reply.

I have lots of positive comments about your theme and the website look.

There is no extension like this available – the only way is hard coding …

Hence why I suggested the idea of it :)

tomsky

Ok I see, thanks for your comment. Hope you will find your way around this problem :)

Kind regards

Just bought your Granule Open Cart Template! I chose this theme on 2 criteria: the excellent design and your great response to my questions. Thanks. Paul

i would like to use the Google Lato font across the full website? how do i do this?

eg body font (generic) – why does this list only MS fonts? body font (google) – where is Lato? heading font – Lato is there! yay.

also which ‘body font’ above takes precedence? the ‘generic’ or the ‘google’.

tomsky

Hi,

Ill check this and fix if this font is missing from body fonts. Generic fonts are so called web safe fonts that are normally installed on majority of computers using the internet.

Google fonts will only be used if you set the checkbox that asks you whether you want to use them in place of standard fonts.

Hi!

Is there a way to use the home page layout with two columns (cols starts at the bottom of the full size slider)?

Thanks, David

tomsky

Hi David,

Yes you could, but depending on what modules you’re going to use (especially slider), you are either going to have a little of work or a lot of work (with slider). That’s the reason why by default this theme has one column layout on its home page, because otherwise we would have to restrict its flexibility in terms of modules being displayed on the homepage.

Kind regards

Hi Tomsky!

Thanks for the quick anwser!

If I could seperate the slider from the “Content Top” position and put to the header section, it could solve every problem. Would You please help me?

Thx and cheers! ;)

Hi Dave,

Great, I didn’t know you can put modules in the slideshow like that. Thanks for sharing this with us. :)

Hi,

Excellent theme. And super work with the facebook comments integration. Kudos :)

A couple of pre-purchase questions:

1. The slider on homepage is taking too long to load on the demo..is it because of the slider, theme or the pics being too big.

2. would it be easily possible in your theme to increase the product image sizes in the grid view so that only 3 products fit in each row.

Excellent work..keep it flowing. TC. :)

Fattribal.

tomsky

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words, really appreciate this!

As for your questions:

1. Demo store uses transparent .png images for the slider, each one is around 200 kb. This (together with transition which makes the slider looks like it turns up on the left (this can be reduced though)) takes a couple of seconds to load (in real store you won’t have slider with theme options, so there’s much less javascript so that will speed up theme loading a little bit).

2. Yes, it can be easily done, you just need to increase image size and also make some changes in css (increase box sizes).

Kind regards

Great theme Tomsky!

I have a simple question… how do you change the menu hover background color independently from font colors? (I think it the background changes along with menu text color options)

Thanks,

Martin

tomsky

Hi Martin,

Yes you’re right, those two colour categories are linked together (in order to simplify the settings). If you want to have different menu hover background, then you should apply a css rule in your style.css document. Below I give you the code (from default.css) that styles menu hover background colour and font colour:

#menu_container > ul > li:hover a { background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #537080; } #menu_container > ul > li:hover a { color: #FFFFFF; }

Kind regards

Hi tomsky,

i just purchased this is great theme,

can you help me to show product attribute on single/detail view?

thanks

tomsky

Hi,

To add an option to the product, you need to log in to your admin panel, then go catalog / products / and click edit next to the product you want to add options to. Then go to options tab and from there you can add product options. You can edit/ add new product options if you go to catalog / options.

Kind regards

great looking theme, so, I bought it. :)

I think it will fit one of my clients perfectly.

1 question.. i am a touch green working around open cart, is there a way to load the content like your demo store?

Just so I can play with your settings and layout without trying to figure out the banner positions etc..

(lol.. when i read the above back to myself it sounds a tad lazy)

tomsky

Hi,

Thanks for buying the theme, hope you’ll enjoy working with it :)

As I wrote in my last comment, I do not have that, but apart from images and slideshow it’s just standard opencart installation.

You can have a look at the demo store admin panel (demo:demo) to see how modules are set up there, this may help you understand how those things work in opencart.

Kind regards

Thomas

flipsidesolutions

yeah, found the demo admin section shortly after i posted the comment.

Thats very handy to have BTW .

Just trying to upload the products… never realised a shop had so many!

Great theme.

another quick question for you, i have the theme running nicely, figured out all my sections and what not and reading loads about open cart everywhere.

I mentioned youtube videos before, i have added a banner of video ‘stills’ to the lower content area and they sit there happily.

As a test i have added a category ‘videos’ and added a product called ‘Youtube video 1’

When i added the product i had to input price details and other info that was not relevant, when you view the ‘video place holder’ on its corresponding pro cut page i have all the info as if it was a product for sale…

Question 1 – can i remove the for sale info (price, product code, stock etc) for a particular product?

Question 2 – The product pops up a jquery modal of the image displayed, where can i get to the guts of that pop up request and target file….. ( I am thinking about tricking the on click command to display youtube content)

Thanks mate..

tomsky

Hi,

1) I don’t think you can do that in opencart with the default installation. What you could do is edit product controller (in admin and catalog) and just add another checbox in the admin panel to check whether you want to display sale info of that product. Then just check this in your front end. I think that might be the easiest way to achieve this, and as I said, I don’t think you would be able to achieve that without editing the core.

2) It’s all done in product.tpl file (inside theme’s product folder). You’ll find all the code together with relevant javascript in this file.

Kind regards

Hello Thomas,

I am a building designer and I will be selling house plans online using OpenCart for my ecommerce store. I am interested in using your theme for my store since it has a very attractive design and is highly customizable. However, I will need to adjust the layout of the product pages to display larger images by default. They will need to be around 600×400 pixels. When I tried to adjust the image sizes with the default opencart theme just using the admin panel, it caused unexpected results with the overall layout of the product page.

Is there CSS or HTML code I can edit for the product page in your theme that will allow me to achieve my desired results?

Thanks for your help.

tomsky

Hi,

Thanks for your message.

Sure you can increase the product image in this theme. If you look at the demo store, currently it has a category banner on the left of the image and sale info on the right. So if you want wider image, you’d have to remove categories module from product page or move sale box downwards, so that there is enough space for larger image. Additional styling of product page can be also made inside product template file and stylesheet document.

Kind regards

Thomas

hello mate, me again..

Just a quick 2 (I promise)

where can i edit the nivo slider effects?

How do i go about embedding a video when a product is being viewed – is it as straight embed code on the product description?

Thanks mate.

found the slider settings, just trying to see if i can change the way it ‘comes in’

As in, fade in or something a little calmer than the cubic easing.

tomsky

Hi,

It’s not nivo slider, this theme user slice banner, which you can find here: http://codecanyon.net/item/jquery-slice-banner-slideshow-with-captions/517693

Also, in slideshow.tpl you should find the list of settings together with comments on possible changes.

Kind regards

Thomas

flipsidesolutions

yeah, found slideshow and relevant settings, a bit of googlefu and i managed to find source material.

Cant seem to make it fade in and fade out as 1 picture, but ill live with the whooshy ness of the original theme.

Thanks for your help mate, your responsiveness is impressive.

tomsky

Hi,

I’m not sure if this slider supports fadeIn and fadeOut effects, please read the comments in the sldieshow.tpl file or contact me via http://themeforest.net/user/tomsky and I can send you slider’s documentation.

flipsidesolutions

no worry, I saw your comments on the other thread. No drama’s i can live with the default setting.
