Does it work on ie7 and ie8?

Also will you keep this theme updated to work with the new woocommerce 2?

Thanks

themesforge

Hey there hollowman,

thanks for getting in touch! Icarostore is IE9+ – YMMV with IE7&8.

Yes, there will be an update when WooCommerce 2.0 is released :)

Hi there is it possible to be able to have more writing (text) options on the front page.

Like I need somewhere to write a welcome paragraph, what we are about and also to help Google discover our home page.

Can you explain do I need another plugin or is there an option to have more text areas on the front page.

Kind Regards. C

themesforge

Hi there vegemite,

thanks for getting in touch!

The homepage is fully widgetized meaning you can use any WordPress widgets on the homepage that you wish including the standard text/html widget which would allow you to add a welcome paragraph etc.

Hope this helps,

Buy This Theme!!! I’d just like to add this post for anyone who is thinking of buying this theme. I bought it just over two weeks ago having searched high and low for a modern minimal look & feel WP responsive design. And although I’ve I’ve previously used WP, I’ve never setup a site from scratch myself.

So how’s it gone? well all I can say is BRILLIANTLY… Not only is the site so easy to configure and actually works for back to front with no bugs, the support you’ll receive, if needed, from the themes author “Ed” is absolutely first rate. He is a genuinely helpful, professional individual who deserves to sell hundreds of downloads of the theme..

No I’m not related to this guy in anyway, I’m just a very happy customer.

So if you need a eCommerce site, just buy this one now…

thanks so much for the lovely comments!

Hi, is it possible to have price altering selections for the products, for instance different sizes? Or is that a Woo Commerce feature?

Thanks!

Hi there thanks for getting in touch! Yes variations are part of the WooCommerce core :)

Hello, I’m looking to include the JCarousel style widget on the homepage of this theme, however, I’d like to have them include products from specific categories (vendors). Currently, the two widgets that are included support recent products, or featured products. Would there be any widgets available, or that you could recommend, that would accomplish this, and still maintain the same look as the two included?

themesforge

Hi searchboxresults,

thanks for getting in touch!

I can’t think of any external widget at the moment that lets you pick a specific category. It would be possible to extend the existing widget to do this – I’ll add it to my wish list for this theme for a future release :)

In the meantime you could have a go at extending or hard coding it by modifying the WP query in

/functions/global/widgets/

Hope this helps, Ed

Where is Layered PNG of layout??

themesforge

Hi there pavle905 – thanks for getting in touch!

I provide a Fireworks PNG for the logo – not the full layout of the theme. Most of the theme is constructed with modern CSS3 gradients, shadows, rounded corners etc. so no Fireworks PNG is required – except for the logo. If you need something specific let me know – I’m here to help.

Hello! I am having an issue with changing the navigation. I made a custom menu, but whenever I set the Main Navigation under Theme Locations to this custom menu, I get an Internal Server Error message when I try and go to the site.

Is this something you can help me with? I will email you the log in information for the site.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Hi Ed,

I recently purchased this theme, I really like it by the way! :) I looked all over the net, went through OSCommerce, Zencart, Shopsite, and so forth, used an Elegant Themes theme for a store (I still like their themes for other things) nothing worked very well. Your theme looks good and actually works! Thank you!

On to my problem, I really hope you can help me…

How can I get my pictures to display at the same size? No matter what I do, they do not display at the same size, I had to set the slider to physically change the picture, otherwise the page jumps up and down because of a large difference in pic size. I already tried resizing pics, did not help.

It would be really great to have all the pics be of uniform size like yours are wherever they are displayed in any given widget.

Thank you Greg

themesforge

Hey there Water4You,

Thanks for getting in touch and for the lovely comments!

Thumbnails are always tricky :)

I’ve got some information in the manual about this but I’ll summarize here:

Some useful tips:

1.) For the slider, the optimal image for all images to be uniform is: 609px wide * 359px long. If you crop your images in photoshop/fireworks to be precisely that you will have no issues.

2.) For product images make sure they are at least 500*500px – WordPress/WooCommerce will then take care of the rest for you :)

Best,

Ed

I tried resizing again, I have 2 pics both sized at 400×310. 1 blows up fairly large, the other is only half the height of the first one. I did use your recommended dimensions of 609×359 and it made no difference at all. :( The pic of water filters always blows up large and the others are different sizes.

themesforge

hmm – that sounds strange – feel free to email me your WP login details and I should be able to take a look for you.

Also send me your raw images aswell.

Also…in the middle area directly under the slider, how do I get a title to display there for the three widgets like you did?

This is the site by the way- http://www.thealkalinewaterstore.com/

Hi Guys I’m making a few changes, and I’ve noticed that if you add the search widget to the header area with a title, it pushes everything down, and there is a large gap between the title, and the search bar. This is possibly due to the H3 the title has. I can’t find where in the CSS to change this. Any ideas? Thanks Simon

themesforge

Hi Simon,

thanks for getting in touch!

The search is designed to not have a title when placed in the header (i.e. the title is within the search input box).

Do you really need a title aswell when it’s in the input box?

Best,

Ed

Default-user

Hi Ed

Thanks for getting back to me. I’m loving how the css was built. Ideally, we were going to have a tagline for the search above it. For now, I’ve just changed the placeholder text in the search bar.

Thanks!

Hey StellaDesign – I think that’s a great way of doing it :) Thanks for the kind comments :)

Hi, In this page woocommerce\templates\myaccount\my-account.php, i´m having a problem with the charset. How can I change that?

themesforge

Hey joaoprcosta,

Thanks for getting in touch! What problem exactly are you having? Can you show me a demo link?

Best,

joaoprcosta

I´m Working on localhost right now :X So, i want to write in latin charset. All the pages ar set to UTF-8. How can i change that?

themesforge

Ah ok – I think this might be more of a general WordPress/WooCommerce issue rather than a theme specific issue – the file you are referencing is not actually part of the Icarostore theme – it’s part of WooCommerce. That said, I’ll try to help where I can. It could be character encoding problem in your DB rather than with the plugin/theme

e.g.

http://blogsuccessjournal.com/blog-tips-and-advice/wordpress-tips-advice/seeing-weird-characters-on-blog-how-to-fix-wordpress-character-encoding-latin1-to-utf8/

Alternatively if you are attempting to translate the theme you should use either Poedit http://www.poedit.net/ or Codestyling Localization – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/codestyling-localization/

Failing that – you need to ask a question in the WooCommerce community forum – but do let me know if you need further help and can show me an example of your problem.

Hi Guys

Sorry to bombard you! I had a look through previous comments, and saw there was work being done on child theme support. Has this been released? I’ve made a lot of changes, and a child theme would make it a lot easier to manage everything with.

Thanks, Simon

themesforge

Hi there Simon,

Good idea to use a child theme :)

Yes – I added a patch to the theme but I think I still need to submit it to themeforest – I’ll get on the case now!

Hello Ed,

I emailed you this as well but will try here too.

I am trying to add an external/affiliate product and when I select that option in the woocommerce product section everything sets up fine. I am able to add the product and add the button text but when I view the product page there is no button displayed, just the Button text in link form. How do I get the button to show up just as it does when adding a standard product. I’ve looked through a large number of CSS sheets but I’m not a CSS guy so I need some help.

Not sure, but it looks like there was never any CSS done in the ICARO theme to present Buttons for external/affiliate products. And since it appears that the theme CSS is overriding the WooCommerce CSS styles, nothing is appearing. I am looking for the CSS code to set this up.

Also, if you could tell me where I can go to change the color of the default Add to Cart button, that would be helpful too.

Thanks, I love the theme!

Hi there, I see Woocommerce have released 2.0.1 yesterday. Before I upgrade will this theme be OK or should I await your update first? Child theme support would also be great.

themesforge

Hi there shineinternet,

A wise person to check before updating :)

It’s best to stay on 1.6.6 for the moment – there is an update coming in the next 24 hours. I’ve already made the changes required and are rolling out theme updates for all my WooCommerce themes on a rolling basis this week.

Best,

Ed

themesforge

Hi there shineinternet,

I’ve just submitted an update to the themeforest approval queue for WooCommerce 2.0 support so this should be approved in the next 24 hours which will then be available to download from themeforest.

Hi there shineinternet,

Update has just been released – support for WooCommerce 2.0.1 and full child theme support :)

Hi Ed,

Theme is looking good! I converted to Woo Commerce 2, now the “default sorting” button displays twice. I’m sure this is a simple fix, but I am to be honest not to good with coding. :( Help!

Thank you!

Hi there Water4You,

thanks for getting in touch!

A theme update was issued last night and was approved a few minutes ago so if you download from themeforest again this version is compatible with WooCommerce 2.0 – enjoy!

Hi Ed, update does not upload. I renamed the install file and get the message that the destination folder already exists.

themesforge

Hi there,

Rather than uploading via the WordPress interface, my recommendation is to uplioad the theme files via ftp to the directory /wp-content/themes/icarostore

This is the easiest way to run the update.

Best,

What version should the theme now say? I uploaded via FTP and it said upload was successful, but version is still 1. The problem I was having is still there. If you go to this link you will see what I am talking about http://www.thealkalinewaterstore.com/shop/product-category/alkaline-water-ionizers/ The sort by…box displays twice.

themesforge

Hi there,

In the zip you download from themeforest there is a changelog.txt file in the root.

This should have the following text at the end of the file

Version 1.5 - 06 March 2013

- WooCommerce 2.0 support
- Chidl theme support bug fix
- Quantity field supports up to 4 digits

If it does you have the most up to date version of the theme.

Hope this helps,

Ed

Theme files have Icarostore2 in them, upload must have worked. Checkout is still not functioning properly however along with the double button display

themesforge

Hi there, your theme has not been updated.

I double checked one of the css files for some of the new css which was added.

e.g. http://www.thealkalinewaterstore.com/wp-content/themes/icarostore/woocommerce/css/style.css

This is still the old file.

My advice is to delete any existing icarstore instances and reupload the new install. It sounds like the theme is being duplicated when your currently upload it.

Best,

Ed

I erased the file on the server, then downloaded a fresh copy from this site, then uploaded via my site on Wordpress…still on version 1. Although the cart is fixed and so is the double button problem. I will try to erase it again tomorrow and then upload a fresh copy again via FTP this time unless you have other ideas. I really do like this theme…just need to get it all working right!

themesforge

Hi Water4You,

Your plan to delete and upload again is a good one – this is my suggested approach.

You should have no issues at you do that.

Hi Ed, I deleted the theme from the server. Then uploaded a fresh copy and the whole site disappeared. Deleted again, uploaded another freshly downloaded copy…got the site back and it still says version 1. I do not know what to do. I checked 3 times before uploading that it was the correct version 1st, it is the only one on my computer, downloaded today.

Hi Ed,

Is it possible for you to show, in the changelog, which files have been changed in the latest release? I’ve made some edits to some of my functions files (although I created a custom style option for new CSS) and don’t want to overwrite anything with the upgrade.

Thanks,

Simon

Hey there Simon,

if you shoot me an email (ed@themesforge.com) I’ll sent you the subversion changeset so you can see exactly what’s changed. The good news is that there are minimal changes to the php – mostly CSS changes :)

What is the best way to set up the Child theme? Put icarostore folder into Themes folder then create another folder ‘mytheme’ and in there upload same files but amend the CSS etc?

themesforge

Hey shineinternet,

You’ve pretty much nailed it there :)

But you don’t need to copy the files – only the ones you wish to override.

See a decent guide for child theming here:

Before I purchase this theme, I had a few questions: 1. Is there a page builder? If not, what page layouts do you provide? 2. Is there a pinterest button? 3. What steps are needed to add new items? My user wants to be sure this is easy to do. 4. What size should the photographs of the merchandise be? Thank you very much!

themesforge

Thanks for getting in touch!

Re: 1.) No page builder – but the homepage layout is drag/drop via widget areas. There are a couple of homepage layouts, 2 shop category layouts. 3 portfolio/showcase layouts. Left/Right content page layouts, blog layout – there the ones I can think of right now :)

Re: 2.) No pinterest button out of the box but you can easily add that with a plugin

Re: 3.) This is very easy to do – take a look at the WooCommerce docs

http://docs.woothemes.com/document/managing-products/

Re: 4.) Min recommended size is 500*500px

Hope this helps,

Thank you – it does. One more question for you before I purchase it. I noticed that I can change the top to different colors. Is there an option to change the main background from white to black? Thanks again - Sheila

Hi there,

Not at the moment but you could do this via your own custom css.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I am not sure how to do this. Is it easy to do? Could you provide me with the css?

At the moment I cannot as I don’t provide this kind of custom css as part of theme support – sorry.
