Hi, you have to download the latest version from Themeforest and update your theme. See update instructions in our documentation (scroll to bottom). Thanks!

hello, have translated the theme Jounal for Portuguese?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you have to find a suitable language pack and install that in Opencart. Here’s a search for portuguese on Opencart extensions page: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension&path=2&filter_search=portuguese Thanks!

I was about to purchase this theme, but then I noticed the icons are just PNGs, I expected them to be something similar to, if not FontAwesome. Any chance you’ll implement something like that in the near future?

Thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, some of them are pngs, some are icon fonts. Our 2.0 version will use icons all the way but I don’t have an exact release date now. Thanks.

sounds good, thanks for your quick reply

Hey there! Im very happy with this theme for opencart!

I would like to know how and if I can hide the subcatagory blocks/icons on a main catagory page. (e.g. http://www.werksokkenshop.nl/indoor-werksokken-kopen)

Tnx in advance for your help!

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you sure can, there’s an option for that in the Control Panel > General > Refine Category Images. File a ticket on our support page if need further assistance, thanks!

Hi DA,

I just bought your theme. It’s really great! :)

I wonder what the license? In fact, I wanted to test on a single domain where they can do everything, and not to damage the website. After testing, I’d installed on a domain where I want webshop. Can I do that or license will be used for the first test domain?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the regular license covers your testing environments as long as your end product ends up on one domain, but you should ask Themeforest more about it, they’ve written the license. Thanks!

Hello there,

while i followed the installation instructions letter by letter i keep getting the following error. Journal not installed – Read full installation instructions http://journal.digital-atelier.com/docs/#!/installation

It seems that the error occurs only in pages with seo-friendly URLs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Default-user

The theme is installed and fully functional for all non seo-friendly urls.

Default-user

Problem fixed… i missed the “right after” part of the following sentence. Sorry.

Make sure you paste it right after the Front Controller line: $controller = new Front($registry);

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes that was it, the line of code is needed for the Control Panel to function properly, glad it’s sorted, cheers!

Is there a way to bypass the use of canonical links on the mega menu. Using canonical links on the mega menu when getting in a specific subcategory the sidemenu (on the sidebar) doesn’t work as it should (having the parent category wide open).

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the mega menu (Journal) is different than the side menu (Opencart) It offers greater flexibility allowing to built categories as you wish whereas Opencart only shows your main categories + the first level of subs only. So they are not synchronised, but you can match the Mega Menu to the default side menu if you wish. Just file a ticket on our support page so our developers can better assist you. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi , love this theme , but is it compatible with RTL languages ? like Arabic? Thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, thanks but unfortunately it’s not compatible with RTL out of the box, it will need to be converted by a developer experienced with RTL.

Hi, like your theme! I want to use a category/attribute/option filter. Does it have one installed or do I have to purchase one? If yes which ones does it support?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, there isn’t one in this version and although we’re working on a native one to be included but I don’t have an exact release date. However, you can buy the theme at any time as all future updates are free though.

As far as 3rd party we haven’t officially tested any but they should work fine, just check with their developer to make sure before you purchase any. Thanks!

Hello,

I have a small request, and i hope you’re able to assist me with it :) Right now, when a visitor clicks on a category that has sub-categories, they see the category-list images. What i’d like is that when a category has products, these sub-category images don’t display. I’ve tried editing category.tpl php if / else, but i can’t seem to get it right.

Are you able to tell me wich lines to edit?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Nick

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you can turn off the subcategory images from the Control Panel > Refined Categories Images and display just the text links. If you’d like to remove them only if there are products (or altogether) file a ticket on our support page so our developers can help you out. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi, How can I change everything in the theme to Swedish language?

Thanks for quick reply, will do it now!

Followed the the instruction getting this message when trying to view the store front from opencart

Journal not installed – Read full installation instructions http://journal.digital-atelier.com/docs/#!/installation

DigitalAtelier

Hi, there’s one more step you need to do, which is to paste that line of code in the index.php file.

4. Open index.php from the root directory of your setup and paste this single line of code around line 220. (Around line 230 for Opencart 1.5.6)

$controller->addPreAction(new Action(‘module/journal_cp’));

Thanks!

Default-user

I did add this line as it was instructed in the documentation. This theme requires every single module to be made from scratch and does not specify the description that which effect in the demo (which is nice until you buy the theme itself) is from which module. The whole purpose to buy theme is to make it easier to get work done, if a person has to pay $45 for a theme and do all the work there is not much difference between your theme and open-cart default, seems like i just paid for the plugins only.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, when you first install Opencart it comes with its own modules installed. We can’t preinstall our own modules, you have to do that yourself and we’ve outlined how to set up each module in our documentation. If you’re having trouble setting any of the modules up just file a ticket on our support page so we can help you out, it takes 5 minutes to set up the modules you see in our demos. Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I will open a ticket.

hi, i plan to buy this one , only one question: when i install Your template, does it already has the default layout ? because i dont know html,i want to save my time , and i just want to upload my item and sales ! awaitting your reply, dear …

Default-user

i mean, if i could complete modify layout via cpanel or not ? ( in fact, i bought oscommerce 1 week ago, but it is so complicated for me, because i dont know html, i just want a theme that similar with ebay maybe? ?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the theme comes with all the 5 skins pre-made, and everything is very easy to edit from the Control Panel, no need for HTML. As far as the modules go you will have to create them yourself from the admin but no coding is required and there’s full documentation on how they work. If you need assistance you can always file a ticket and we’ll help you out. But before you buy access our demo admin here and click on Journal – Control Panel. You will see the many options you have at your command. You will also find a button like this (?) next to each element. If you click on that button it will show you what that element is so it’s really easy to customize this theme however you want.

Thanks!

Hello, This template, when used in smartphones works with all shipping methods and payments?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the checkout window will always display whatever shipping and payment you have. However, some payment methods give you their own code to put in the page and that may not be responsive so ask them if it is. Thanks!

hi,dear,if I don’t want to use the youtube and vimeo function,I want to use other video website(like youku.com and tudou.com),how I change the scripts of your theme? thanks!

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that may not be possible inside the Revolution slider module, you can use videos from other providers if you have the embed code in the side blocks, product tabs and other places where you have the html editor. File a ticket on our support page if you need assistance with this. Thanks!

Hi, i have sent you a ticket yesterday with title “Subcategories” about a problem i face. Also i would like to ask this (it is relevant with the ticket but not included there): Is it possible to have 3 level drop down menu on the header menu (the classic one, not the mega menu). That is to say, rollOver the Main category > drop down, show the subcategories of the main category. This is how it works now. Then rollover one of the subcategories > drop down and show the subcategory (3rd level) of the subcategory of the main category. And to keep the full path of the URL: /category/subcategory/subSubCategory/ not /subcategory/subSubCategory/

Looking forward to solve this and have a solution at the ticket i sent you too.

Thanks – GREAT WORK by the way. Cool design, very modern and elegant with lots of customisation capabilities and user (admininstration part) friendly. Highly recomended!

Best s

DigitalAtelier

Hi, thanks a lot! Our developers have responded to your ticket, please follow through on the ticket thread for any assistance you may need. Thanks!

Hi, compliments on this great theme. Want to know if one can replace the existing vertical categories menu on your homepage with something similar to your horizontal categories mega menu on top of the page?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the default side category module can not display custom menu items like the Mega Menu but we’re working on a custom side category module which should be able to match the same menu structure you build up top. Thanks!
