Very nice and beautiful theme!

I’m gonna buy it the minute you have eliminated the few bugs I discovered ;-)

1. On iPhone5 and iPad2 the product images on the product page are distorted. This doesn’t happen when I resize the browser window on my desktop PC to mimic iPhone size.

2. On iPad2 the responsive product grid of the homepage doesn’t break evenly: first row has 3 products, second row has 2 products, third row has 3 products, fourth row has 2 products etc.

3. On iPad2, the sidebar gets pushed below the products. The two column grid then looks somewhat lost and has too much whitespace. In my humble opinion there’s enough space on a tablet to place the sidebar on the side, see e.g. ultimo theme.

4. On iPad2, on the product page the product description and add-to-cart button shouldn’t be pushed down. This will hurt conversion rate. Much! Again on a tablet there’s enough space to place the short description and call to action beside the product image.

5. On the product page, the “More views” block is too far away from the big product image. Additionally the product description is way too far below, resulting in a huge whitespace below the addtocart button and right of the “more views” block, pushing the product description below the fold. Eye flow goes totally lost here. Also, full page width for the product description isn’t very reader friendly. I’d suggest to place the product description on the right of the “More views”/”big image” block.

6. The social media buttons should be moved from below the more views block to the right of the H1 product title (not below the product title). That would add some social proof and trust (FB logo) to the page while making the site more compact without hurting the whitespace (since there’s plenty of it on the right side of the H1).

7. Search form on the top needs to be better visible and bigger (textbox, not icon). Several studies showed that visitors using on-site search convert way better than normal visitors.

8. After a product has been added to the cart, the popup on the top should have a call-to-action saying something along the line of “Continue shopping or go to the shopping cart!” where “go to the shopping cart” is a link. The visitors need to be guided, especially since the cart on the top right doesn’t stand out very well. This leads me to:

9. Have a more meaningful cart icon or better make the cart section on the top right stand out more. It’s too hidden atm and it will hurt conversion rate.

I’d love if you take this advice by heart. It’s an awesome theme and it just needs some small tweaks to optimize it for conversion rate and to make it suitable for a high traffic store!

Again: I love the theme, it’s one of the 3 best Magento themes I have ever seen! Please make it usable for real life stores :)

Hi,

Thanks for the comments and appreciate your efforts in providing detailed suggestions. We will surely take this by heart and will try to come up with updates soon (can not guarantee for all of the above but will try our best)

Could you please provide an example of the product detail page you talking about (May be some good store link) which will help us redefine the product detail page

Thanks & Regards

Hi Your theme is very nice, i was wondering if there is any possibility to have the “buy now” button above the slider. Please see sample

Thank you

peerforest

We dont have slider in this theme but we are planning to add it in future update.

peerforest

Hi,

very nice theme but i see that you do not follow Magento Best practice.

You define functions directly in phtml files -> bad, use helpers instead.

You put javascript and css inline -> bad too, use helpers and observers to generate a css/js file with customized options

You don’t need to duplicate all template files, in your theme, just the one you customized.

You’ve modified a core js file (Validation.js), what will happen if you upgrade Magento?

You’ve overloaded some core Files (Page Module, Sales Quote Model…) Why?

I found a lot of Notices (undefined variables)

I Bougth this theme to spend less time in frontend part but now i’m going to spend some extra time to make it Magento best Practice compliant

(put your modules in community folder to let us extend it in local one)

peerforest

HI,

Thank you very much for your feedback. This will hep us a lot in improving and giving customers a quality work. We will certainly work on these things in our next themes and updates.

Thanks again.

I’ll wait for your next updates, sorry but have you seen that if you put a long category name , your category page is broken with title going under toolbar?

peerforest

K, will check and update asap.

Great! By the way this category title is a mix between a h1 and a h2 start with h2 and end with h1. It has to be a h1 for SEO stuff

Hello there!, Menu’s on Ipad are not working very well!, are you going to fix that? Thanks…

peerforest

Please send us screenshots for this on peerforest@gmail.com and we will fix and update theme.

aongroup

Will send images now… When working on Ipad, the I noticed following… 1) After adding a few products to Cart, then the actual Cart Icon in the upper right hand corner disappears. You can see in the images sent to you…, it is simply not there or possible to check out… 2) When Cart is showing and you add to cart, then it appears under the menu. 3) Menu works different depending on which page you’re at!, but essentially, when clicking on a menu, then sub-menu’s does not appear…

All I can say is!, that I look forward to the few bit’s and pieces are fixed, cause it’s an awesome theme and can’t wait to purchase…

peerforest

Thanks for you comments, we will surely check & solve out these issues, but we didnt get your email yet. Did you send it to peerforest@gmail.com

peerforest

NO able to reproduce these errors here, please send us screenshots asap.

Hi there,

I am getting a 404 error when trying to change the colour or edit the share tool.. Pretty much most of the config file throws a 404? Any ideas?

Thanks

peerforest

It should be caching issue, remove all cache files from your root > var > cache and var > sessions and login to admin again and try to change config.

Thanks

Beautiful and simple theme! I like it!

But before I buy it I would like to give you my suggestions as to how you can improve the theme.

1. People shouldn’t have to press the “load more” button. It should automatically load more when you scroll down, e.g.: https://www.coolshop.dk/catalog?section=toys&genres=8

2. When you move to the product page, then it would be nice if you could zoom in on the pictures, e.g.: http://www.hm.com/dk/product/11549?article=11549-B

3. The shopping-cart-logo looks boring. Couldn’t you make it into a fancy shopping bag or something like that?

4. A product slider with special offers would be really cool as someone already mentioned.

peerforest

Hi Frikadelle,

Thanks for your suggestions. We appreciate your efforts

1. Good suggestion and we already have thought about it. We may have this feature in next update (but can not guarantee)

2. Its already there with different style, you may customize as per your needs.

3. I think you may change it whatever you like, Its always a matter of personal choice.

4. Explain with example

Regards

Default-user

4. Check out: https://www.coolshop.dk/ You will notice that there is a slider. It would be nice with a slider above the product images on the front page and possible on the categories pages.

Regards

peerforest

Ah, do you mean a banner slider ? If yes, we are already providing it in next update.

Default-user

When will the update be released?

peerforest

Hi,

i bought the theme yesterday – are you sure the problems kickmedia described regarding iPhone and iPad presentation are solved in your update?

1) iPhone, vertical orientation – menu is distorted 2) iPad, vertical – products on homepage and categorie pages do not space evenly (second row not left-aligned) 3) iPad – click on cart icon -> navigation button of gallery is on top of the floating cart view 4) iPhone, vertical – way to much whitespace on product category pages 5) iPad – vertical – sidebar below products and not left-aligned

etc.

You can have a look here: http://ihre-gene.docinsider.de.

Fixing the presentation on iPhone and iPad in all orientations would be helpful to really use your theme.

Best

peerforest

Yes, those are solved but please mail us on peerforest@gmail.com if you are still having these or any other issues and we will get back to you asap.

btw / not related to iPhone/iPad:

6) text/button in slider on homepage not always centered … 7) no possiblity to go from quick view to product detail page 8) cart view on small widths distorted (look for the words “Aktion” and “Zwischensumme” on http://ihre-gene.docinsider.de -> cart view and look at the width of the table which is wider than the bounding box on small browser widths …)

I like the cleanliness of your theme, but the responsive aspects do not seem to be finished.
