Hi?I bought this theme yesterday, and I want to use this theme as chinese B2c website, may I know how can I translate this theme to Chinese language? Thank you

DigitalAtelier

Hi, sure, the languages are handled directly by the Opencart system, it’s not related to the theme. Go to Opencart extensions page and search for a suitable language pack. http://bit.ly/14VZnNO
Then proceed to install the language pack, info on that can be found here: http://bit.ly/1cUgZNe

Thanks!

thank you so much, and I have another question,which is the white background under the logo,how can I change to transparency background. thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that option is in Colors > Header > Logo Backgorund, leave the color field empty to make it transparent.

Hey there, was wondering if possible and how easy to change the product image size from being square to rectangle (portrait), same width but just longer.

Currently it looks very nice on different screen sizes in responsive so would changing product size to portrait mess up responsive design?

cheers Fudge

DigitalAtelier

Hi, it can be done with a little custom css, nothing complicated. Thanks!

just a advice,If the header can be adjust like this,I mean dynamic logo and search bar position,so we can put our own logo on dynamic place,because some logo may not match nicely with white background .

thank you so much

Hi, we have a more flexible header coming, however you can change the white logo background with your own color or make it transparent. This option can be found in Colors > Header > Logo Background, just leave the color field empty to make it transparent. Cheers!

Hi DigitalAtelier

I just updated to 1.8.1 from version 1.3.4. Everything seemed to upload fine when I upload through filezilla. I went into Modules/Journal control panel and hit the button to update the theme. It said it was done successfully and now shows 1.8.1 as current version. What is strange is that none of the new modules since 1.3.4 are present for me to activate and everytime I try to do something in the journal control panel it kicks me out and brings me back to opencart login screen with an error message “Invalid token session – please login again”.

Has this happened before and I just missed doing something? I cannot edit anything in control panel but my website seems to be ok so far. But I put my site into mtnce mode as well and it doesn’t even state that to let people know.

I will also file a ticket.

thank you.

Susan

DigitalAtelier

Hi Susan, looks like a server mod rewrite on your end or the files weren’t all uploaded, we’re looking at your ticket, Thanks!

Hi, your theme require core modifications? if so, this modifications are vqmod or replace original file…thanks.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, no core files are modified and no vqmod is used. You can use vqmod for other modules but the theme does not require it. Thanks!

hi, your template is nice. i have question demopage isnt in more languages, but our new store will have two languages. where will be language button? on right from currency? i look on demowebsite but your demo is only in one language always. and exist option how set responsive settings for 3.size same as is now set first and second resolution? i mean pinned top menu.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you can see a second language installed in our Journal III demo https://journal.digital-atelier.com/3 There is an option to display the flags in a dropdown or next to each other. The responsive is automatically displayed based on resolution – you can turn the responsive layout on/off from the Control Panel. Thanks!

Default-user

thanks for reply. yes now i see flags thanks. about responsive settings – yes i know, now is in your demo for 3. resolution set not pinned menu so for this exist option pinned menu in 3. resolution? i speek because we need pinned menu on ipads and tablet with resolutions 768 too, and now is on demos set for this resolution not pinned.

Default-user

only small question big slider banner on homepage , this banner have other size? we mean with a smaller height (on height).

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the fixed header option only works on desktops, on mobiles it will scroll up with the rest of the site. The Fullscreen Slider does not have any other sizes, it stretches the entire screen. The Revolution Slider and Journal Slider can have fixed dimensions. Thanks!

now i look on journy via my ipad and i see two things, this is only small bug in demo? here is screenshot http://i43.tinypic.com/207m3a0.jpg

Default-user

If is your answer on my previous questions positive and if exist on this small bugs correction so we will buy your template.

Only we need know, TEMPLATE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE MOST WIDELY USED PLUGINS FOR OPENCART or exist some modules what not work with this template, please?

This compatibility issue, we need to know, before you buy if you understand.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes those are small css fixes, we’re taking care of them right now. Other plugins should work fine with our template but we can’t guarantee it, you would have to talk to their developers to make sure. They may need adjustments in order to have the look and feel of Journal. Thanks!

Default-user

Okay so on 99% we buy. Only last question only what user who buy this template must buy as next.. is only Block Manager for OpenCart? All other things is include in this template or exist any other thing what user need buy?

DigitalAtelier

Yes, all the modules you see in our admin demo that begin with “Journal -” are our own and included in this theme. Only the Blog Manager is sold separately. Cheers.

Default-user

Good. And the last question: how does the update for this template? the update is simple or need something more?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, update instructions are found in our documentation, (scroll to bottom) http://journal.digital-atelier.com/docs/#!/instructions

Cheers!

Default-user

Yes see, okay update procedure look easy so we will buy today. Very thanks for your all replies.

DigitalAtelier

Ok great. Thanks!

Default-user

My work collague now tell me some. So I must you speak on one thing, sorry, please look on this image and tell me exist option logo size 2/3 and menu buttons (example: Categories, New Arrivals, Shop by brand, Information, Photos, Blog,..) from left on right size? I’m trying to illustrate you on this screenshot, so please have a look and let me know, thank you. (i know that this is on Journal 4 but exist this option for example Journal 1? because we prefer style top menu what have journal one) screenshot what we mean: http://tinypic.com/r/300fjmx/5

DigitalAtelier

Hi, every option you see in one skin is available to all. There are over 400 settings in this theme and they can be applied to any skin in any combination. Journal IV is not a separate theme, is the same Journal I with different colors and options from the Control Panel. Same with all other skins. Thanks!

Hello,

I really don’t understanding the direferrence between the “regular” and “extended” edition. Besides the price, for whon do you recomend the “regular”?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the regular licence is for one domain. If you like to build multiple stores for multiple clients you can buy additional regular licenses for each domain. The Extended license allows you to incorporate this theme in a product that you sell to multiple customers. However, you will need one extended license for each such product and you can not redistribute the source file of our theme. More info can be found here http://themeforest.net/licenses Thanks!

Default-user

Do you have a contact phone number?

DigitalAtelier

We don’t operate over the phone but questions about the license should be addressed at Themeforest, as they are handling the financial transactions, not us. You can get in touch with them here http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Tickets/Submit Thanks!

Default-user

What do you mean with: 1. Use for multiple clients (developer license) 2. Use in multiple end products (or multi-domain) 3. Use in an end product that’s sold (more than one end user allowed)

It includes mobile?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, I think mobile doesn’t apply in that sense but I’m not sure how they actually interpret it, please get in touch with Themeforest, they wrote the license, they know best. Thanks!

Default-user

ok.. but, according to my understanding if I get the regular license the site is not going to be able to sale products, am I correct? Look forward.

DigitalAtelier

Of course it will, it won’t allow you to create a product (like your own ecommerce platform) and include our theme in that package for redistribution, in that case you’d need an extended license. But to use this for your own store to sell whatever products you want on that store you just need the regular license. You would need additional regular licenses for each different store. Hope that made it clear. Thanks.

Hi,

The more I look at your theme the more I like it. I do, however, have some pre-purchase questions:

1) I know absolutely nothing about OpenCart. I’m an avid Wordpress user but am not happy with the shopping cart options available for it. How hard is it to transition from WP to OC? I do know CSS and HTML but not PHP.

2) Can you place banners and/or additional images anywhere on the individual product pages? For example, if I want to place a banner at the top of one product page and a different banner at the top of another product page is that possible? If so is this possible for all OC themes or is it theme specific?

3) Can the logo area be resized (taller/shorter, longer/shorter) without breaking anything?

I think that’s it for now.

Thanks!

DigitalAtelier

Hi,

1. We’re not sure how hard is to transition from WP to OC, but you can look through OC documentation here and these installation screencasts here. Install OC on your server and play with the default theme until you understand how it works.

2. Yes you can place different banners on different pages (as you can see in our demo on the category pages) We’re not sure about other themes.

3. No, there are only 2 different logo sizes, the regular one you see in Journal I demo and the one you see in Journal IV.

Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. Just to elaborate on question 2 – can the banner be limited to be just over the product area and not over the sidebar or right module area (whatever it’s called in OC). The banner on your Category pages is full width and I would only need it to be over the product area.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, just the full width banner is available like that (for product pages) The Category pages have an additional banner like what you need, but the product or other pages have to use the regular slider module which spans the width of the page.

Hi, i just purchased this theme, when i tried to save “Journal Control Panel” it says “You do not have permission to access this document. “

Which file i need to give permissions?

Thanks.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, this is probably a mod-rewrite set by your hosting. File a ticket on our support page so our developers can look at it. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Now I looked on all the templates for OpenCart and this template is probably the best for OpenCart, seriously :)

Default-user

just a shame that it lacks two features:

1) the possibility banner on the home page (as in journal5) slightly smaller in length and either the right or left side of the two or three small square banners ,that would be super new feature new banner style Maybe you could add it in future updates ;)

2) for field: Features products or Similar products, be able to have for example five,ten,etc products in one rectangle field where would be to the left or right hook left and right arrow (I looked into administration and this property I not found there, but if this property in template so, I apologize)

DigitalAtelier

Well, if it has everything nobody else will sell anything, will they :) Turns out we’re bringing more features to Journal in the near future so stay tuned. Cheers!

Hi, i deinstalled/disabled Affiliates, Gift Vouchers, Affiliates, Reward Points but the links are still visible in my footer. How do i get rid of them? Edit the template file of the footer? Same for the (RMA) Returns page.

Besides, when you say gift vouchers are available for 25 to 500 euro, on the gift vouchers page still it says they are available for 1 to 1000 dollar. Just edit the translate file?

Thanks! It is a good and nice theme! :)

DigitalAtelier

Hi, thank you! Yes, the footer links are removed/edited in the footer.tpl file but we’re not sure about the voucher, please file a ticket on our support page for that. http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Question: when have store example in two languages.

and we have banner in two versions in english and germany.

exist option in journal module for side banner this:

when have user look on web in english language so on side show english variant banner (banner with english text) and when user change language on germany show germany version banner (banner with germany text)?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you can input different banner captions based on language in the Journal Slider module (not Revolution Slider), if you go here https://journal.digital-atelier.com/3/admin/index.php?route=module/journal_slider/update_banner and click on Add Image, you will see that each image has a caption field for each language installed. Thanks!

Default-user

Yes is it in demo admin, thanks. So when have store in two languages. in journal template is only one limitation “Revolution Slider”? or exist any other limitation. when we need store in two languages please? this information we need know before you buy.

DigitalAtelier

The Revolution Slider is a different module than the Journal Slider (used for banners) and didn’t want you to confuse them. The captions in the Revolution are are a different concept using a combination of text, images and videos, but this isn’t a limitation, that’s how the module works. All other text inputs have multiple inputs for each language, you can look through the Journal 3 admin to make sure everything’s how you need it as far as multi-language is concerned.

Default-user

Good. It’s maybe all questions that me came to mind. well, we look into administration in demo3 and if will be all okay, we will buy in today night. Thanks for answers.

I want to buy this OpenCart theme. Translation of OpenCart and its theme for Portuguese is easy? Would be only one file to edit or several?

thanks, Raphael

DigitalAtelier

Hi Raphael, the languages are handled directly by Opencart so this theme supports any language. You have to install a language pack from here. Instructions can be found in Opencart documentation here.

Thanks!

now we added currency and shows small problem

we have three currencies dolar as ”$” (its okay) euro as “€” (its okay) but last is czechkround and for this is not symbol but two letter “K?”

wheel under currency as background is OK but when the user rolls the mouse over currency we need to increase by about two / three pixels.

may I ask where we might find settings for this, or which css include settings for this. thanks

A great theme! But, why you don’t offer a database for easy installation?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, we’ll have this feature in a future release but it takes 5 minutes to set up the theme like any of the demos, if you’d like to purchase and need assistance with this let us know. Thanks!

Default-user

Maybe I’m not so good at that :-) Setting up a similar theme may take me a few hours. And yes, it would be very good and a big plus for your products if you have made a database for quick installation. For example, all the templates for Joomla! complete with a quickstart for a long time.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, all demos are pre-saved in the form of skins that you an activate with one click (as you can see in our Control Panel, the Active Skin dropdown) So then you would have to set up the modules you need and that’s about it. Of course it will take a long time to populate your store with products and set up the categories but that’s not theme related, you’d have to do that anyway. Nevertheless, we can help you with setting up the theme like in any of the demos if you need it. Thanks!
