how to change furniture and magento tab in product home. fast reply.

MeigeeTeam

Hi, You can change Magento and Furniture Tabs in admin on the page “home” (CMS-> Pages-> home). Open the content tab of that page and you will see the title of links and the widgets that are used for each tab. Configure them (change category ID products of which you want to show and change the titles of tabs) then save. Just remind you to turn off the WYSIWYG editor while you configure the content cause it breaks the HTML mark up.

Probably, the set of products will not change if you change the category ID. In that case go to app/code/local/Meigee/Meigeewidgets/Block/ and open Featuredcategory.php. Find the string with value “return $cat0;” and change it to “return $cat1;” than save. After that actions you have to clear all the magento cache. From this moment everything should works.

How to add the currency prefix before the price? (e.g $15 -> USD$15)

MeigeeTeam

Hello, To change add symbols before price go to app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/.

Open file price.phtml and find in it:

<span class="price-excluding-tax">
    <span class="label"><?php echo $this->helper('tax')->__('Excl. Tax:') ?></span>
    <span class="price" id="price-excluding-tax-<?php echo $_id ?><?php echo $this->getIdSuffix() ?>">
        <?php echo $_coreHelper->currency($_price+$_weeeTaxAmount,true,false) ?>
    </span>
</span>

change

<?php echo $_coreHelper->currency($_price+$_weeeTaxAmount,true,false) ?>

to

<?php echo 'USD '.$_coreHelper->currency($_price+$_weeeTaxAmount,true,false) ?>

This will add ‘USD ’ to all of the prices. Hope it helps.

I need some help adding in pages to the “Static Blocks In Header Navigation” in the Menu section. I create a static block and place the “Identifier” name is the section. But the Navigation bar is still blank. Please feel free to contact me back at edwards@adventroyals.com

MeigeeTeam

Hello. If your navigation bar is blank that means you have created your categories tree wrong way. All your categories must be set as subcategories for default one, this is how magento works.

Hi, Is it possible to work with the available static blocks in different store views? For example, i need two different languages for “category_slider_3”. My problem is that when i edit the content to Portuguese or Spanish it automatic changes the English content.

Thanks in advance.

MeigeeTeam

Sure, you can create different static blocks with the same ID for each store you have

Different static blocks (content) but with the same name? ex: 3 x “category_slider_3”?

MeigeeTeam

Yes, just associate them with different stores.

Already created a configurable product classified as New product, went to cms/pages/home page/ and changed the featured category to the one i´ve created for the configurable product. After that the product does´t appear on the homepage. Am i missing something?

I´ve also noticed that after done that, the title “new products” (Homepage) changed the font style.

Thanks

MeigeeTeam

Hi, If you want to display new products on home page you have to use our widget “Meigee New products Extended”. If you want to show products from specific category you have to use our widget “Meigee Featured Category Extended”. If you use our widget “Featured category extended” but products remained the same, you need to to to app/code/local/Meigee/Meigeewidgets/Block/ and open file Featuredcategory.php. Find the string with value “return $cat0;” and change it to “return $cat1;”. Then flush all the magento cache and reindex all data.

After i upgraded to 1.8 my reviews are no longer working. You can see the review option, but after you fill out all the information it just reloads the page and nothing is submitted to the backend?

MeigeeTeam

Hi, It seems that you updated your magento to 1.8.1.0 while Independent compatible with 1.8.0.0. We will release patch to 1.8.1.0 shortly (probably 1-2 weeks) and this bug will be fixed in that patch.

With best regards, Dylan.

Default-user

Any update on the patch?

Default-user

Would really like to get reviews working again. Can you please give an update on the progress of the patch?

MeigeeTeam

Hi,

Yes for sure. Please send us email through our profile and we’ll provide you patch for magento 1.8.1.0.

With best regards, Dylan.

Hello, great Theme!!!! only two questions, Where I can change the css slider? Why I have a blank area as 500px between slider and content of the homepage? thanks a lot

MeigeeTeam

Hi, Thank you for purchasing theme. To edit CSS styles for slider go to skin\frontend\meigeetheme\default\css\ and edit styles.css. All styles for header slider are under the title /Home Slider/ By the way you can easily determine css file by using Firebug in Firefox (here is an explanation how to use firebug http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6128369/how-do-i-get-css-source-file-path-from-firebug) or similar developer tools in other browsers. Concerning blank area: The most likely reason is that while editing content you didn’t disable WYSIWYG editor and it broke HTML mark up. Compare your code with code for header slider and remove odd tag p. You can disable WYSIWYG editor by following the instructions described here: http://meigeeteam.com/faq/#toggle-id-3 .

With best regards, Dylan.

Hi,

1) Can I use fact navigation with this theme? 2) Can I use solr with this theme 3) Can I use visual auto suggestion in search? 4) Are the codes obfuscated? 5) Here is Google page speed and Yslow report, can you add remaining images to CSS sprite? 6) Also how to remove “specify image dimension” objection from that same report 7) How to defer parsing of JavaScript, the third objection of that report 8) Can I achieve <3s page load time after optimizing both front and back end, using this theme?

With Regards, Junaid

Default-user

sorry for typos: in question 1) it is facet* not and fact and in question 7) I don’t how the emoticon added to my sentence.

MeigeeTeam

Hi Junaid,

Thank you for showing interest in our theme. See answers for you questions below:

  1. Can I use fact navigation with this theme? We tried to make this theme as much compatible with any extensions as possible but it’s impossible to get it done for sure due to huge amount of available extensions. In theme documentation we described installation instructions of 3-rd party extension, so in the most of case you will be able to get your extensions works with our installed theme.
  2. Can I use solr with this theme See answer above
  3. Can I use visual auto suggestion in search? Same answer as for 1st question
  4. Are the codes obfuscated? We created easy-to-read code with pretty sufficient amount of comments. At the same time, most of theme changes are not required CSS and HTML knowledge, so you won’t need to change code.

The questions below are not related to theme options, but we made a research and find answers for the questions you are interested in.

  1. Can you add remaining images to CSS sprite? The Javascript and CSS are already merged in admin, one more solution that will help to overcome that message in report is to use “FooMan Speedster module” which also helps to crunch CSS files (removes extra whitespaces to further optimize the site). We didn’t test that extension, but our customers recommended it.
  2. How to remove “specify image dimension” objection from that same report Here is the answer
  3. How to defer parsing of JavaScript, the third objection of that report Here are :short hint #1 and short hint #2
  4. Can I achieve <3s page load time after optimizing both front and back end, using this theme? Magento is slow by default and our theme is affected a little to the speed of page loading. So you have to speed up your magento and your server in order to get nice speed results: here is some steps that speed up your magento. Also we describe several tips in our online FAQ that speed up your magento and can be implemented via magento admin panel. And finally here is hints how to achive page loading speed less then 2s

With best regards, Dylan.

Default-user

Thank you Dylan for quick reply.

In CSS sprite question I was asking about Combine images using CSS sprites, you explained me about this Minify CSS and Minify JavaScript, FooMan Speedster don’t make CSS sprite. Now could you please explain this sprite issue?

MeigeeTeam

Hello. Making css sprites is customisation issue and our support doesn’t cover it.

How can I change toplinks? (Account, Wishlist, Checkout, Login) I didn’t find in the theme files.

MeigeeTeam

Hi,

Top links are core magento links so the question is not related to theme, that’s why we do not described those links in theme’s documentation, but we described how to manage that links in our online FAQ, particular here: Top links. I trust the above resolves your queries.

In wishlist page after I click “add all to cart” button it’s gave me this link: wishlist/index/allcart/wishlist_id/2/?qty2=2 and 404 page displaying.

What am I missing?

MeigeeTeam

Hi,
Please check if your wishlist is working properly on default theme. If it doesn’t, that’s mean that your store configured a little bit incorrectly. If everything is ok on default theme, check if all theme files were uploaded and are not damaged. Try to use the most recent theme version.

Do you know any bug about onepage checkout page?

When I use independent /layout/checkout.xml file It’s not progress to “payment information” tab, and also right sidebar checkout progress not working

If I change checkout.xml file from base theme’s checkout.xml file payment information can work very well but checkout progress still not working.

Do you know solution, anynone has same problem or just me?

Please help me, thank you!

Default-user

Before this, can you please tell me why I see “sidebar” on checkout page? I need to see checkout progress. Right? But in default I see sidebar. Why? And how can I turn this to checkout progress div?

MeigeeTeam

Hi, We just checked magento onepage checkout on demo version and progress bar on that page is working fine and none of sidebar is showing on the checkout page. Seems that something overrides default theme behaviour please check the points below in order to find out and correct the issue:

  • third-party extensions
  • some custom modifications
  • custom sub-theme
  • some elements that left from previous themes.
Also please make sure that you are using the recent theme version.
