HI DA, Just bought your product last night. Great work. I ran into some problems. I am trying to edit the Information section to add some info since it is currently blank.(About us, Terms and Conditions, etc,) and what I encountered was that I am unable to get the description section to add my text. Is there something that is preventing this information section from editing. Second, Item, and I believe everyone who bought this wonderful theme would agree. Would you have a video tutorial available on utilizing your theme versus just the documentation you have available. I bet many of us would pay for the video tutorial. Maybe charge $20.00 and make it like a Youtube type video. This would be cool. Thanks Joe.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, those areas (About us, Terms, etc) are not controlled by this theme, they are OpenCart default features and this might have to do with the way your user permissions are set. We could take a look at it if you file a ticket on our support page with temporary admin access http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Some video tutorials are a good idea, we’ll see how we can come up with those by our next update. They’ll be free of course :)

Thanks!

Default-user

Wow! that was awesome on the response time. Super. Would you happen to know which permissions I would have to change what area should I look at in the html area (FTP) admin, system, catalog,image etc, )) and should I make the permissions 755. It seems to be an easy fix then just need to know which to modify? On another note, would you suggest to change all files to 755 if not why? Thanks

Question, I am getting ready to buy your theme but as I was playing around with it I found it that on the iphone and ipad your template #2 and #3 fail to load the background images, has this been brought up to you before and is there a fix available?

Thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, this is an option from the admin – you can disable the fullscreen module on mobile devices for better performance, or you can leave them on, your choice. I turned them on now so you can check. Thanks!

Default-user

Thanks alot for the info, beautiful theme btw, buying now :)

DigitalAtelier

Thanks so much, let us know if you need any assistance with the theme. Cheers!

Hi

there is an error while installing this. when i paste $controller->addPreAction(new Action(‘module/journal_cp’)); the front show ’’Journal modules are not enabled!’‘

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that means you haven’t installed the Journal modules in Extensions/Modules Please read our documentation (Activate Theme part) If you still encounter any issues please file a ticket on our support page http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support Thanks!

BTW, what is blog manage meant?? is there any blog function?? and how could i put my FB on side box??

thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the Blog Manager means our theme supports the Blog Manager extension, sold separately here http://www.echothemes.com/extensions/blog-manager.html

To put your facebook on a side block, you have to generate your likebox code on facebook website and paste that iframe in the custom side block. Please file a ticket if you need assistance with this http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support Thanks!

Default-user

thanks for ur reply. and i found out that the ’’menu category’’ looks different while i use IE to check the website. it seems like css problem i think.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that could be from a cross-domain misconfiguration. Please file a ticket so we can look at it. Thanks!

Suggestions:

1.) Add option to allow sliders/banners from modules to be added to more than just one layout page without having to make a duplicate of the slider. Or even an option to make a copy of the slider would be better than nothing.

2.) Be able to have different sliders/banners on individual product pages.

DigitalAtelier

Hi Lisa, both of these are already possible. Please file a ticket on our support page if you need assistance with them. Thanks!

Default-user

Ok, I was blind for #1 above and I did find it but for #2 when I say individual product pages I mean to be able to choose which product a banner/slider shows up on and not just choose products as a layout type where the same banner/slider would show up on all product pages…....is that possible now?

Default-user

Great addition but is there any way to have the new product slider be able to choose by item/model number also? Oh my goodness what a headache to choose products just by name if there are for example 5 products listed as just “Baby Boy” in different categories…....you wouldn’t know which one to choose because you would just see “Baby Boy” listed 5 times.

DigitalAtelier

Yes, #2 has always been possible, you can put different modules on any page, including individual product pages – you just have to create a custom layout for each. Same goes for different products with the same name – you create additional layouts for each. Thanks!

Default-user

Gottcha…...I remember seeing that before but I was confused as to what “Route” was at the time and totally forgot about it being there. While Open Cart is a great cart, it isn’t always the most straight forward. They need to learn some lessons from you guys about using visual help aides. :)

DigitalAtelier

Hi, thanks a lot! It si a great cart but there’s a lot of room for improvement. It will come eventually, they’re constantly working on it.

1. I go to the slider 2. Cashing button 3. Leave a message: “No Modules Created” What to do?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, I’m afraid I don’t understand what you’re saying, please file a ticket on our support page so we can look at your setup. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi there

if the product name is too long, could i make it move to next line??

thanks

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes there’s an option for this in the Control Panel. You can truncate it with ”...” so it stays on the same line or you can show the full name on 2 lines. Thanks!

Default-user

i cant find it in the Control Panel ><

DigitalAtelier

Hi, it’s in Control Panel > General > Product > Product Name Overflow

Default-user

thanks a lot^^

Default-user

BTW, i have set up the custom sections, but there is no pagination like the demo you have.

DigitalAtelier

What pagination are you referring to?

Default-user

sorry, i mean the effect of custom sections; after setting up, there is no ’’effect’’ like the demo.

DigitalAtelier

Perhaps it wasn’t set up properly, have you followed the instructions in our documentation on how that module works? Please file a ticket on our support page with your url so we can look at it http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support Thanks.

I’ve looked everywhere in cp so I don’t have to bother you (again) but can’t work it out. How do you ‘fix’ or anchor the background image so it doesn’t scroll, like the road image on your ‘journal II’ demo? Thanks again for your great support :)

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that’s the Journal Fullscreen Slider. Just set up a module instance and upload a single image in it (for a fullscreen background) or a set of images (for fullscreen slideshows). Here’s the info how to use that module: https://journal.digital-atelier.com/docs/#!/journal_fullscreen Cheers!

Default-user

Super quick reply as usual. Many thanks :)

Two questions. 1. Is there a way to show a short description on the quickview? 2. Is there a way to show images on the categories menu?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, 1. The product description is visible, are you asking if you can shorten that? 2. Not at this time, we’re working on a Mega-Menu feature that will allow you to have category images in the menu.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!

Default-user

1. yes can the description be shorten in the quickview? per-haps the option to show meta-description in quickview. This would coincide with the “More Details” button.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes you can shorten the description and you can also show the meta too. The More Details button is just there take you to the actual product page. Thanks!

Default-user

Can you explain how one might go about doing this in your theme?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, of course, after you purchase just file a ticket on our support page and we’ll help you out. http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Thanks!

Default-user

I’m helping a friend that purchased your theme. There is no info on Quickview in the documentation. I could hard code something but I don’t want to have an update reverse everything. I just figured there was a short code or something that is missing in the documentation.

I guess I’ll go the support route… I’m just trying to get ‘r done!

DigitalAtelier

We only offer technical support on our support page so just have your friend file a ticket. Thanks!

hi, i am interested to purchase the theme, but i would like to know if i can embed youtube videos onto the item descriptions. would the be videos be responsive when viewed on mobile devices too?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes you can embed youtube videos in the product description. The video will retain its original width within the iframe so it’s not really responsive. Thanks!

Default-user

thanks for the quick reply!

Hi DA, We already bought the theme. Is it possible for you to change flag language into letters? like a dropdown of english, chinese, french. If ou did that this Theme Is the best theme we ever had in theme forest thanks :) www.cnluckygoods.com

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that would require a custom modification in the header to allow for other elements to fit in. Please file a ticket on our support page to see how we can help you with that. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi

I have just purchased this theme and I have uploaded admin, catalogue and image to opencart but I cannot find the index.php so i cannot add the line of code in. Can you point out to me where it is please?

Thanks Jess

DigitalAtelier
Hi, it’s supposed to be in the same directory where you’ve uploaded the 3 folders. (Those same 3 folders should have already been present in that directory, so you must’ve done a replace/merge) If that’s not the case please file a ticket on our support page with your ftp and opencart admin access so we look at your setup. Thanks. http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support
Default-user

Hi, I found the directory but it won’t let me open it because no programme is associated with that file type – do you know what will allow me to open it?

DigitalAtelier

You should be able to open the index.php file with any text editor, try Notepad if you’re on Windows or TextEdit on Mac.

Default-user

It isn’t giving me an option it’s just telling me that i cannot open it how do i go about telling it to open with notepad?

DigitalAtelier

Try to right click on it and Open With and choose Notepad.

Default-user

Thanks I have opened it with notepad but how will I know where line 220 is? Is it ok to download the file open with notepad then reupload it to the directory or will that mess it up?

DigitalAtelier

Just scroll towards the end, and paste the line right after:

// Front Controller
$controller = new Front($registry);

Default-user

ok thanks can i reupload it to the directory if i have downloaded it?

DigitalAtelier

Yes of course, just replace it with the old one there.

Default-user

thanks sorry for all the questions this is my first time using opencart. I have followed all the instructions so far but when i go to the store tab in open cart i don’t have a journal option it just has admin, catalogue and image have i done something wrong?

DigitalAtelier

Yes, something must be wrong and we don’t know what it is until we look at it so just file a ticket on our support page with temporary access to your admin so we can check it out http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Default-user

ok thanks for all your help

Hello, how can i make bigger size for category pictures, since the text falls off? http://www.primecomputers.nl/example.jpg

Regards, Peter

DigitalAtelier

Hi, you can have the text on 2 lines or make the images bigger. Both require a customization in the code, please file a ticket on our support page so we can help you out. Thanks! http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi I am interested in buying this theme but had 1 question. Can I add a product text field for customers to put personal message for product to have? This is usually done in open cart in attributes and product options usually is this still possible with your theme?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, if it’s available in opencart is available in this theme. We don’t modify any core opencart files or functionality.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Is anyone else having troubles with the Journal template (and the Journal demo site) on WindowsXP/Internet Explorer 8? I’ve contacted support but they don’t seem to believe me. Tried on at least 5 different computers with IE8 and the layout of the header breaks horribly – both on my website and the Journal Demo site.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, we didn’t say we didn’t believe you, just that the screenshot you sent us does not look like our version of IE8. It may be IE8 you’re running, but in different modes or perhaps the XP version is an older one, we’re not sure. Here’s the comparison https://journal.digital-atelier.com/compare.jpg

With that said, we’d like to help you get to the bottom of this, just follow through on the support ticket thread so we can find the solution.

Thanks!

Default-user

Yes, Windows XP can run in two graphics modes. I run mine in downgraded graphics mode for speed. It’s what Server 2003 looks like by default. Internet Explorer’s render engine isn’t affected by the graphics mode.

I’ve been looking at the http://journal.digital-atelier.com/2/ demo throughout the day on five different Windows XP / IE8 computers. Now, suddenly, the demo is working right in these browsers. Something changed … and I definitely didn’t change my computers for the laptop I borrowed.

DigitalAtelier

Hi, your logo box was bigger on IE8 for some reason. We’ve adjusted the header elements on your server and IE8 seems to be displaying properly. Please check and let us know. Thanks.

Default-user

I took a look at the catalog/view/theme/journal/stylesheet/style.css file you edited for me. Thank you. I used my diff tool to compare your modifications to the original style.css in the Journal 1.6.2 ZIP download. Interestingly, the version info in the original file is 1.6.1 but you updated it to say 1.6.2 on my server. Will you be including the updated version in future downloads or do I need to retain this version of the file you modified directly on my server?

I see that you added IE8 specific styles on lines 540, 643 and 951. Works fine in IE8 now. Of course, since IE8 sucks, the layout breaks when the browser window is reduced to something smaller than the standard width (like your demo) but anyone running IE8 with a screen resolution of 800×600 is going to see problems on a lot of websites.

Thank you for the style sheet modifications!

DigitalAtelier

Hi, I’ve only edited your logo box size and 2 more header elements (top-links and login text section). Some of the other ie8 specific css was already there as we’ve tried to make this bad browser work as much as possible but some things are really impossible. The 800×600 resolution would not work as IE8 does not support media queries and our minimum desktop version is 980px.

You should update the theme entirely in the future as there are many features we’re introducing and your issue should be taken care of. If you still experience any of that after an update please get in touch with us.

Thanks!

Hi, any change of including a blog/news manager yourself? I saw another theme which has a 10 dollar blog manager included. It would be nice to need your theme only, and not have to be dependent on other plugins or suppliers. :)

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the $10 option did not seem professional enough for our theme so we decided to support the best blog extension available for Opencart, Blog Manager by Qahar. This small additional investment is really a bargain for any professional stores because you get a top notch piece of software that’s being constantly maintained and improved by its developer, with full support and free updates.

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

Default-user

Hi, before I buy this blog plugin, is it possible to disable comments for all posts? I do not need the ability for discussion, I only want to be able to use it as news. For example, to write a small text for a new product or something like that.

Default-user
surfaap Purchased

Ah, maybe i can use this one http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=3679 and change the BLOG navigation to NEWS? That must be easy isn’t it?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes you can disable the comments feature on the Blog Manager. Here’s what they say about comments:

Comment Management
Comment management is a feature that blog must have. With Blog Manager you will get threaded comments style with ability to disable or enabled comment on certain category, auto approve for certain customer group and also show staff badge on comment/ reply from the staff.

This is by far the best blog software for Opencart but you can try others too, we just haven’t tested any other and can’t guarantee that they’ll work as intended with this theme. Thanks!

Hi, I bought your extension, which looks pretty nice and I also bought the echo blog manager following your advice. Could you, please, tell me how to integrate both? I have carried out the mods indicated in the blog manager instructions but I get this error message:

Notice: Undefined variable text_blog in…

You say that Journal is designed to be compatible with blog manager, what am I doing wrong?

Next question, is there a Spanish version?

DigitalAtelier

Hi, yes of course it is compatible, so you probably didn’t install it properly. Just file a ticket on our support page and we’ll help install the blog. The theme does not come with any additional languages but you can install any language you want, everything is multi-language in OpenCart. Go ahead with that ticket so we can assist you. http://journal.digital-atelier.com/support

Hi

Can I change the product image size and the product list image size

thank you very much

DigitalAtelier

Hi, the product list size is maxed out at 280px and calculated evenly for each responsive resolution. You can change the product list size and the product image but they may need some adjustments in order to fit properly for all resolutions. Just get in touch on our support page with your required dimensions to see how we can help you out. Thanks!

Hi,

Where would i find the color and header section and the skin section in opencart?

Thanks Jess

DigitalAtelier

Hi, all that is in the Journal Control Panel. Hope that’s what you’re referring to. Thanks!

Default-user

Hi,

Sorry stupid question: where is the control panel?

Thanks Jess

DigitalAtelier

Hi, that would be in Extesions/Modules/Journal-Control Panel. Cheers!

Default-user

Hi,

Can I reset all the settings back to how I orginally got the template?

Thanks Jess

DigitalAtelier

Hi, of course, just hit the Reset Section blue button you see on the right hand side. That would reset the current tab you have active, not the entire control panel. If you’d like to reset the entire control panel just uninstall the module from Extensions/Modules and reinstall it again. Thanks!
