Hi,

I am trying to export the demo settings but I get an invalid purchase code. Even though I enter the code. Please help! I urgently need to continue my work.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you have to use the same purchase code that matches the TF user who purchased the theme. Try again with Google Chrome, or file a ticket on our support page with the same user and code so we can investigate. Regards.

Hey, I have some pre-purchase questions I’d like some help with please.

- Mailchimp – does this require another module?
- Do you provide .psd files, and if so can you provide some pre-sale so I can get buy-in from the client?
- Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest feeds – are these available, or again is this another module integration?
- We are creating a site which will involve product customisation. So we’ll need to upload a file and add additional info. Something like this page: http://rgenmodernstore-demo10.rgenesis.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_28&product_id=42 Is there functionality for this?
- Is there any way to add customer testimonials on one page?

How easy in general is it to integrate other modules? I have HTML CSS background. Should this give me enough coding know-how?

I really like the look of this theme, would be great if I can resolve these elements or be confident that I’ll be able to integrate the modules myself. Thanks!!

DigitalAtelier

Hi,

  • We have a newsletter module that collects email addresses and also has a CSV export function but it’s not integrated with MailChimp. There may be 3rd party modules that are integrated directly but we don’t know any.
  • We don’t provide PSD files as we’ve designed the theme directly in the browser.
  • Social feeds can be added to any page in the theme via CMS blocks which support any HTML content.
  • If you’re referring to the product options on that page, those are not theme specific, they’re part of the Opencart system. You can see that same product in our theme as well.
  • We have a module called “Text Rotator” that can be used for such purpose. You can see it in Demo 1 on the right column after the CMS Block module.

If you know HTML/CSS you can do pretty much anything you want. You have numerous ways to insert HMTL content via CMS Blocks module, Product Tabs, Side Blocks and we also have custom code fields where you can write custom CSS or JS code.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Regards.

Hi, What is below error ? Notice: Undefined offset: 0 in C:\xampp\htdocs\journal\catalog\controller\module\journal2_side_category.php on line 84Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\xampp\htdocs\journal\catalog\controller\module\journal2_side_category.php on line 143

After import demo data has been cleared of all products and categories

What should i do?

javad10170

Please advise how I can get the images used in the demo?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you can not get demo images as they are not included. The demo export includes the module setup so you don’t have to create them yourself but you have to use your own images.

In case of the error just file a ticket on our support page so our developers can assist you, looks like an empty unused module. http://support.digital-atelier.com

Not sure what you mean by “After import demo data has been cleared of all products and categories” but if you included Store Data from the demo, that means you exported the same category and product structure in that deme, which in turn means it deleted all your existing categories and products. So if you have existing categories and products do not include store data.

Regards.

OpenTshirts Question

I would need this theme to work with OpenTshirts. Do you have a version or fixes to this theme to make it work correctly with the OpenTshirts extension? If yes, how can I purchase this version or obtain the information on what I must do to patch the Journal Theme.

Thank You

DigitalAtelier

Hi, we’ve already taken some steps to make the OpenTshirts mod work with Journal and those will be in the current version currently available on Themeforest. However, we can’t offer support for 3rd party extensions but we did fix some vQmod incompatibilities. Regards.

Default-user
I understand that you can not support the OpenTshirt extension. However, I am not following you in your reply:

  • You said twice in your response that you have taken “some” steps and made “some” fixes to make the latest theme work with the OpenTshirts Extension. Does this mean you did not take “ALL” of the necessary steps to make it work or make “ALL” of the necessary fixes?
  • I assume you are referring to version 2.3 of Journal?


I only want to make sure that when I install this theme and then install OpenTshirts, I do not have the problems that I have read others have had. (Parse Errors, Category and Product screens not showing) and crash the website. I have a backup, of course, but I dont want to go through that if its not necessary.

Bottom line is, I will buy the theme if its now plug and play ready for use with OpenTshirts…that is my only real question.

Thank you for your time.
DigitalAtelier

Hi, that’s exactly what I’m saying. We’ve helped some customers with that mod for “some” issues it had on the product page. I did not say “ALL” as we are not familiar with all the functionality the extension has and therefore can’t guarantee full compatibility. Regards.

Default-user

OK, Thank you. I have spoken to the Developer of OpenTshirts and they can help make the necessary changes to OpenTshirts to make it work with Journal, as they have already performed this for people. Thank you for your time.

Can you Suggest some SEO extension best compatible with your theme?

This theme does not contain any SEO feature ….

DigitalAtelier

Hi, Journal works very well with the SEO url system build into Opencart so not sure what other features you’re looking for. There are 3rd party SEO mods but we can’t recommend any since we haven’t tested them. Please check with the mods developer if they work with custom themes. Regards.

1. Hey, I have purchased the theme and installed on www.mazuri.co.ke However, i noticed that whenever i load the website on mozilla firefox, it always displays the icons in question marks rather than the actual icons. After clicking on a menu and going back to Home, it works perfectly. But whenever i load with chrome, it displays perfectly.

2. When a customer is checking out, there are three options that appear:

text_next

text_next_choice text_use_coupon text_use_voucher text_shipping_estimate

Also, on Top Menu, the word shopping cart appears as text_shopping_cart

Is it possible to fix this and is there an update to the theme that fixes most problems people have faced so far? and how do you go on updating to the latest theme without affecting the work that i have already done?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, your issues are not related to the theme but our developers will respond to your ticket explaining what they are.

1. That’s because of cross-domain policies when you access your store from a different address than the one you have installed OpenCart on, meaning it will work fine if you access without “www” in front of the url, like this mazuri.co.ke

2. Whenever you see text like that it means your installed language pack is not properly translated. This has nothing to do with the theme though. Same thing applies to the top menu where you see “text_shopping_cart”. That’s the variable the system uses but it’s not translated in the language file and therefore it’s displaying the variable.

Regards.

Default-user

Thank you for your prompt feedback DigitalAtelier, its invaluable to us.

Is it possible to mend this problem with the language script and more to that, which language script would you recommend that would work well with the theme? My clients are from all over and it would really help if they got to see the website in their language.

What’s your view on this?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the language pack is not part of the theme, you install the pack in the Opencart system itself and works the same way regardless of what theme you have active. So there isn’t a script we can recommend as there are 500+ language packs available for Opencart. Some are free, some are paid and some are better translated than others. It is your choice as to which one it’s best for you. http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension&path=2

Hi,

If I were to buy this theme together with Blog Manager, is it possible to:
  1. Display snippets of articles at homepage where New Arrivals, Best Sellers and etc. at?
  2. How easy is it to place snippets of articles at homepage for example in two columns, left column display articles from category X while right column display category Y?
  3. Is it possible to display snippets of articles as a sidebar at homepage?
DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes the blog has modules that can be positioned on any page either in the center or on the side column. There are modules for Popular Articles, Recent Articles, Recent Comments. You can assign modules in any available position on any page.
We don’t have blog styling options in the admin as the module has it’s own admin but it inherits the general styling from the theme settings.

Regards.

Default-user

Hi,

Thanks for the fast response. I just saw the demo at http://demo.echothemes.com/blogmanager/index.php?route=common/home and that’s what I want to achieve. But instead of Popular Articles and Recent Articles, I want it to be Category specific, is it possible? I need to be very sure for this.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, not sure, your should direct your question to the Blog Manager guys and be as specific as possible as we don’t offer support for the blog manager so in case something can not be done you know beforehand. I know there is a Category module but that doesn’t display articles, it just shows the blog categories in a menu. Regards.

I just bought this theme. I have vqmod installed, I’ve renamed my admin folder as best practices suggests, I renamed the admin folder in the Journal 2 .zip and then uploaded and merged via ftp.

I can activate the admin interface, but not the theme in Settings. It’s not even showing up. Any ideas?

Dear DigitalAtelier,

Thanks for your job. The Journal is an excellent theme. I like it more and more.

I use filters and I can not set the order of sorting within option created fields. I created option and set order of sorting there but in Journal the order is different. Could you direct me where it is possible to set the sorting (if possible)? Thanks in advance.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, please file a ticket on our support page so we can look at your setup and help with that http://support.digital-atelier.com Thanks!

Feature suggestion for future versions: please add slide function on mobiles and tablets for carousel and rotators

DigitalAtelier

Thank you for you feedback, very much appreciated!

There are features in the Journal Slider and Carousel module to swipe on mobiles, they may need to be turned on, look for Touch Drag option in each module’s general options. Cheers!

Hi, are the updates to Journal free? or is there a subsequent fee for every update thereafter? and will the update affect my current setup forcing me to redo any settings?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, they are free and they go on top of your customizations without having to redo them. Cheers!

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

lycon17, I’ve already updated the Journal 2 to the newest version, no fee for updates, after purchase you can subscribe to notifications about new releases in your themeforest account. All settings are stored in the database, update files on your site does not affect the settings. Of course you need to make a backup before updating, because errors can occur when you update due to various reasons such as interruptions ISP or hosting provider

Default-user

Hope that help! Great theme i recommend it!

Thank you for your helpful input, LeadProfit!
