Hi,

like your theme. Do you plan more skins? I want tot change the layout like in Sellya theme, boxed layout. Main categories under the logo, search field in the middle of header. Would it break the responsive layout and can I make these changes without loosing after update?

Thanks in advance.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, thanks. We do have more skins coming but not with the search field in the middle. To put the search in the center of the header requires a customization so it will fit nicely on all responsive layouts. You should keep your css separate so that you’ll be able to update the theme easily and get all the new features we’re bringing.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
Thanks!

Thanks in advance :)

DigitalAtelier

Hi, these aren’t related to the theme, they’re default OpenCart features that are not set from the journal control panel. Please consult Opencart documentation for more info on these features or file a ticket on our support page so we can try to guide you to the right info. Thanks!

When setting up Google Analytics do you just need to enter the code in the system>settings>store>URL section? or do you also have to input it in every page?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, System/Settings/Server/Google Analytics Code should be the only place you need it as it goes into the header, which loads on every page. Thanks!

The moment you think this theme is sooo amazing it cant get better you guys come with a even more amazing update :)

DigitalAtelier

Thanks a lot, we’re definitely coming with even more exciting features in our next updates. Cheers!

have a quick question regarding the placement of extra images on the product page, is it possible to place the thumbnail images that are below the main product image on the left side of the main product image ?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, sorry but that’s not possible with the current configuration. You can try to force them on the side with custom css but it will probably break the responsive layout.

Hi,

Is it possible to use the the standard modules like latest and bestsellers in the custom tabs on the homepage ( the tabs below the slider image)? The tabs are really nice but always need manual updating while latest and bestseller , most viewed etc. dont need that and for a large website thats a big time saver. I know you can use them but not sure if you can use them in the tabs.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, sorry but only custom sections work with that module right now. We are looking into the possibility of using default OC modules as well. Thanks!

Sorry if someone asked before, i just need to know if the theme is suitable for selling e-books, graphics stuff, html theme and so on…

Thank you Tony

DigitalAtelier

Hi, this theme is suitable for any kind of store, as is OpenCart itself, but it depends on your particular requirements. The features you see in our demos is what you get so you can decide if it’s right for you. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

are there any issues when attempting to set up multi store use

DigitalAtelier

Hi, what exactly do you mean? The multi-store is an OpenCart functionality that applies differently to the various modules. We’ve recently introduced to capability to save the theme control panel settings on a per store basis. As far as we know, there aren’t any issues with that, but here’s more on OpenCart multi-store feature http://docs.opencart.com/display/opencart/Creating+a+multi-store.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
Thanks.

apologies for the late reply , the issue with multi store was a hosting issue not theme related. the multi store setup didnt work on the temporary webspace i was using before going live

Hi, I found some display issues:

- On tablet Ipad: homepage: it doesn’t scroll to the top when I click on custom tabs as it does on my desktop.

- Site is all broken on my cellphone: HTC One X

Please let em know if you are planing to fix those issues and when as I would like to buy this tpl.

thanks!

DigitalAtelier

Hi, can you please be more specific. Which demo are you trying out? There are different settings in our demos. Thanks!

Hi,

When I try to search the content of the web page I get…

Notice: Undefined variable: filter_name in /public_html/b2b/catalog/view/theme/journal/template/product/search.tpl on line 12

Notice: Undefined variable: filter_sub_category in /public_html/b2b/catalog/view/theme/journal/template/product/search.tpl on line 41

Notice: Undefined variable: filter_description in /public_html/b2b/catalog/view/theme/journal/template/product/search.tpl on line 48

Do you have any suggestions how to solve the problem?

Regrads

Solved! :)

DigitalAtelier

Ok great, let us know if you need any assistance. Thanks!

HI

is the subcategory image size fixed?

it is too small

DigitalAtelier

Hi, OpenCart only provides text links for Refine Category Images so we had to build our own feature that supports this. Those images are maxed out at 90×90px to fit evenly on all responsive resolutions. We’re working on making those refined image dimensions flexible in our next updates. Thanks!

Hi, I am looking to purchase your theme. Can you make the add to cart messaging open in a modal just like the the Quickview popup. The add to cart popup/modal should have checkout now and continue shopping buttons. The current add to cart messaging that shows at the top right after adding a product to cart is not best user experience. Please let me know.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, unfortunately we don’t plan on adding any more functionality to the Add to Cart notification. We’ve built that as an improvement to the default OpenCart notification but we can’t handle the checkout process through that popup. Thanks!

Default-user

Okay, thanks for the quick reply.

Hi, Just bought and installed your tpl on a fresh install of OPC v1.5.5.1 and only got a blank page as homepage with the following error text:

Notice: Undefined variable: controller in /home/andreina/public_html/index.php on line 221 Fatal error: Call to a member function addPreAction() on a non-object in /home/andreina/public_html/index.php on line 221

Can you please advise me on how to fix that?

Thanks

DigitalAtelier

Understand there are some work-hard enhancement that going to release by Author soon and yet even those I am extreme happy with the Author Support and the Journal Theme, it will be great that you guy consider to enhance for existing extension function, example:

Existing Extension – Custom Sections & Product Slider: - The current setting is only good for low level products that choose/keyed by autocomplete. Suggest to enhance that: “To sync with the Selective Category; Latest or Best Seller with Pagination function.”

Top Wishlist: 1- AJAX shop-by-price (Price Filter System) 2- News system to publish news and promotions 3- Groupon style Countdown 4- Category/Product Accordion 5- Compress Styles; Scripts to make the site load faster 6- Layout with 3 column instead of 2 at this moment

Optional Wishlist: 7- SEO & Sitemap Generator 8- Advanced HTML insert

Actually I don’t mind if you guy develop and sell as option to purchase, at least it will compatible to the theme and user like us no need to waste money to buy incompatible extension OR somehow if you can include into the theme to make it more stronger and powerful, I am sure it can increase the sales by triple as what you have right now… I hope to see Journal in the top sales list @no.1 in OpenCart!!!

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes we’re hard at work on several new features like Revolution Slider, Mega-Menu with optional category images, custom product tabs, photo gallery module and other improvements. However, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of modules/features that our users like/need on this system and while we aim to make it the best, it’s really impossible to do so for everyone. We’ll do our best in keeping the theme updated. Cheers!

To be honest, I am sure and grantee these 3 functions (1- AJAX shop-by-price (Price Filter System) 2- News system to publish news and promotions 3- Groupon style Countdown) will able to make the entire theme more completely and fight down the Shoxxica.

1 successful theme will able to represent the success story/way you are, and it able to help you guy further when going to release Journal to other eCommerce platform.

DigitalAtelier

Thanks for your suggestions, we’ll look into those features for our future updates but can’t guarantee anything right now. Thanks!

I was very close to buy your theme this morning. But when I checked it out on my Ipad I found that for example, pressing on the shopping cart area. The whole upper area was turning to grey and then to normal. The same occured when pressing somewhere on the footer too. Also when you have to check out. What is causing this things to happen?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, all anchor tags get that temporary gray shade on iPad/iPhone. We’ll look into adjusting the cart button for our next update so it won’t trigger the shade on the whole header. Thanks!

quick question: When do you plan to add the feature to have the logo centered in header?

meanwhile, would you please tell me on how to do it by modifying the code manually.

thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, we’re planning to have that option in our next major update, 1.7 which is about a couple of weeks out. I’m afraid it’s a complicated process to center the logo (unless you know css pretty good) because all header elements depend on each other to fit nicely on the responsive layouts and modifying one requires adjusting the others. We’re still working on this option at the moment. Thanks!

everything is perfect in this theme just few question 1. if make custom link menu category will it support drop down where i can put some details where this link is taking . 2. In MultiStore setting if i make custom link in menu will it appear on other multistore take example i created custom link in menu at store1 but i don’t want that custom link to appear at store 2 . 3. does this theme comes twitter tweet and facebook like box ?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, there is already an option for larger logo. It’s in the control panel > general tab > layout. Here’s a sample of the larger logo https://journal.digital-atelier.com/larger-logo.jpg

The center logo option will come in our next major update, 1.7. It’s about 10 days from now.

Thanks!

Awesome Purchasing done . I will wait for your update before applying your theme on my opencart website . Can’t wait

DigitalAtelier

Thanks for buying our theme! You will get an email alert when the update is ready for download. Cheers!

just to add to the previous comment am also setting up a multi store is there a way of duplicating say the fullscreen slider, product slider and have having seperate specials , featured , banners for either site

DigitalAtelier

The Journal Slider module works similar to the default OpenCart Slideshow module and that uses a different approach to multi-store. You have to create custom layouts with relevant routes for these modules. Here’s some info on how that works http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=34296. You can file a ticket on our support page if you need assistance on how to achieve this and we’ll guide you through it. http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Thanks!

could you add countdown for featured products?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, we’re looking into this possibility for our future updates but I don’t have a guaranteed release on this feature at the moment. Thanks!
