Hello, just noticed a heavy menu flickering, when I hover over the submenus. This happens on all pages, so the underlaying slider is not to blame. That was my first thought.

Please, check with Safari (webkit-based browsers)

Thanks for listening.

dnp_theme

You are on MAC right? If you purchase I will definetly join you on Teamviewer and fix it. FYI : This only happens with Safari.

Thanks for the heads up, but I already know about :)

pepperstreet

Wow, that was a really fast reply ;-) Yes, MacOSX and latest Safari. Sorry, you are right, it happens on Safari only. Google Chrome MAC has no issues.

Can you give a clue, what is the cause?

dnp_theme

I am now running some tests to determine exactly what it is, it and seems to me in the first place we are dealing with sequence transitions not running smooth with Safari, I can disable those transitions for Safari Only if that is the ultimate fix. Anyway no worry we have things under control :)

BTW , interesting Sliders and modules… are those your own developments. I noticed the letters DNP ;-)

“this baby requires allow_url_fopen = On and allow_url_include = On on your server, please ask for support at your host.
Mmh, not ideal. Most providers do not allow them because of security reasons. Also bad for the joomla internal updater… Why does your module require it?
dnp_theme

Yes, my own developments. I am also into the process of improving the Slider, I know I need to make it work without allow_url_fopen = On and allow_url_include = On.

This first release is more like for testing ground, the next version is going to be stable in all possible ways.

UPDATE : Regarding the menu flickering, I think disabling transitions is the only option to work properly unfortunately.

dnp_theme

Please check again the live demo, I’ve done some improvements for Safari, I hope works on MAC too. Please check.

dnp_theme

I also fixed the allow_url_fopen = On and allow_url_include = On requirements, check it out!

pepperstreet

Partly improvement.

The menu is much better, but still has one slight flicker effect. Seems to occur only once, when you move in and out on sub-sub-menu opening. Hard to describe. Try to hover back and force on K2 Portfolio <-> K2 Item. Each time the sub-sub-menu appears, the first submenu flickers.

The Slider is not smooth anymore. The transition is a flickering, reminds me on a lightning.

dnp_theme

The slider is not smooth because you are using too many tabs in your browser. It’s a matter of browser memory as I understand. If I only use one tab, it’s perfectly fine, if I use at least 5, well, it’s a bit flickering indeed. I really think it’s the same in your case. Give your computer a restart and you will see it’s running fine ;).

The menu works perfect on my Windows Safari, I cannot help more than that right now except completely disabling transition for Safari Only OR you can make it as you wish for Safari. For me, I am disappointed that Safari, used to be my favorite, now is not supporting some simple transitions.

I hope this helps.

RokAJAX search results are not displayed in Mobile-view. Is this a feature or a bug?

dnp_theme

RokAjaxSearch search results does not display properly on many browsers for mobile so I disabled it for mobiles. It’s position is managed by the internal scripts, if you can code some Mootools, go ahead and make it your way.

I think I can try to hack some CSS for it ;)

pepperstreet

I see. Then the search-box should be hidden, or it should be the normal joomla module. The current box has no results and makes no sense on mobile view, IMHO .

BTW , your Benz Template Slider is really smooth. Its Skitter? maybe a total different script, but its really smooth. No matter how many windows or tabs I use… Also checked out the “duotive” WP templates. They run also very smooth. Maybe a good inspiration and source.

Thanks for your great support and comments! I am still not sure about my choice, but I will definitely keep an eye on Kent…

dnp_theme

Yes all other templates use Skitter.

FlexSlider behind Kent template is having a set of scripts to readjust everything for a responsive layout right? Anyway, my Skitter has many months of development behind, this new slider behind Kent is just the first release, I am working on it as we speak and I am going to make it and keep it as “the best responsive slider for Joomla”, there is no other alternative yet.

Kent has already many new built in (I say built in because they are all connected) functions: ULTRA LIGHT own main navigation it’s mostly CSS , some powerful automatic adjustments maybe unique, the responsive portfolio filter, the responsive slider, the responsive typography, and above all, I am keeping all updated so you don’t have to worry.

pepperstreet

From your lips to God’s ears. ;-)

dnp_theme

Don’t worry my friend, all in good time ;)

dnp_theme

The slider have been updated: now it’s much more optimized for performance, introduces CSS3 animations and no longer require those server features. Enjoy ;)

pepperstreet

Looks much better now. No flickering. But I still see an issue in Safari and main menu… The submenu seems to move about 4-5 pixels from left to right. Please, rest a little moment on a submenu entry. Seems like a slow-motion anim over the black border width.

dnp_theme

I disabled the opacity animation for Safari Only, now only the top-to-bottom move is available for level1 and left-to-right for level2+ items. If you want you can disable all animations for Safari, I can help with that.

pepperstreet

Again, its hard to describe in english ;-) There is a little and very short sliding effect. Maybe this does work combined with a fade-in … I can´t really notice it in other browsers. It seems much quicker. The fading has more weight and visual impact.

On Safari it looks “strange”, because there is NO fade, just this little movement, plus a delay. It moves really slow. It does not slide-in the whole menublock, it does only move 4-5 pixels. (see the bolder bottom border)

Maybe it should appear abrupt. Or it should slide-in the submenu items.

Just thinking load.

BTW , I like your mobile menu design! Not the ususal selectbox, which seems to become an ugly standard. (maybe because some devices have their prettier default style). I can´t test it on a real device, does it really use your style on any targeted device?

dnp_theme

As I said, I disabled FADE transition for Safari ONLY . Safari does not seem to work properly with sequenced transitions. It is Safari developers fault and not mine or my template.

I put a lot of work making a CSS3 only menu and above all, responsive and easy to use. So if you have a problem with CSS3 transitions on Safari, you can address such issues at developer. I am not going to do any JS hacks just for the sake of Safari. I hope this makes sense to you.

Additionally, if you purchase my template I can help you disable all menu transitions for Safari IF YOU WANT , some people could like it as is.

pepperstreet

No problem. I appreciate your efforts and the CSS3 solution. I just wanted to let you know about the current result. Nothing more, nothing less. I noticed it, because Safari is (my) the default for browsing. Since there is Safari WIN and Chrome… it might be interesting for other users as well. (if it is a special Safari issue, don´t care too much about it ;-) )

I was just curious about this little movement, because it is not noticable in other browsers. So, it might be un-important or could be removed at all!?

dnp_theme

Yes, it is not important at all, especially for non-developer users. What is important is layout break, critical error, or very obvious design difference.

How do you like the new sample content?

I have trouble with Joomla finding the sample_data_kent.sql file on the Install process. I then tried to go to my PHP admin area and install there but it’s giving me this error message.

Error

SQL query:

- Database: `kent`

- -----------

- Table structure for table `#acymailing_config`

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `#acymailing_config` ;

Any idea why this would happen?

dnp_theme

Please contact me via PM, we will fix this together shall we?

Here is where I’m not seeing the sample_data_kent.sql file to install. “gator9.hostgator.com/~gpkelly8/images/problem.jpg”/>

dnp_theme

When installing Joomla, right after configuring the database connection, you are required to install the sample data, but default you will see: “Default sample data (en-GB)” but that’s a selector that allows you to use the kent sample data.

dnp_theme

Consider my previous reply as if you are using the Quickstart.

Hi DNP ,

On that drop down menu the kent sample data isn’t showing up.

Any idea’s why?

dnp_theme

Please browse the Quickstart package location:

Quickstart/installation/sql/mysql/sample_data_kent.sql

If you already have it there and does not show in the dropdown selection, please rename the file to sample_data.sql and click Install Sample Data while Default Sample Data en-GB is selected.

All right!! That worked perfectly! :-)

Second question, Can I add a side menu module on the inside pages of template some how?

dnp_theme

That’s pretty simple, create a menu module and publish it to position-5 (left) or position-7 (right). For more questions on Joomla basics, please ask for support at developer. Thanks

Spectacular Template!!!!

Almost have site complete!

The last thing I’m working on is figuring out how to import a Wordpress blog database into the K2?

Any articles you can point me to?

Thank you so much again Dan!

dnp_theme

Thanks for your kind words!

I have a friend developing a content migration solution called CMigrator. You can give it a try. It’s a commercial extension but I know this guy personally, he is a real developer and serious person.

All best,
Danny :)

Hi i have loaded this template and i am getting this error message. “Error loading component: com_k2,1” i don’t know why its even bringing up K2 in the first place as i don’t have it loaded. Is this template K2 dependent or something?

What am i doing wrong?

Also.. can i please have the module positions for this template – thanks

dnp_theme

I fixed that issue, soon will release an update, meanwhile, please contact me privately will provide the fix for you.

created4design

I loaded K2 and it seems to have fixed the issue, am i good? also will be needing those module positions please.

I don’t know how to write you personally by the way.

You are very quick in getting back to me, which for me means SUCCESS !! thank you for your prompt service. Looking forward to digging into this template deeper. Keep up the great work.

Good day, I really liked your template, exactly what I need! But there is one question I wanted to ask. Does the template support cyrillic languages like Russian?

dnp_theme

There is no limitation to language, and if there is any issue, we will fix together, I’ve seen some greek clients’ websites and those were fine.

Hello, I did not find a way to contact you directly so I am using this comments section, I need to report a bug and request a fix for it:

CMS : Joomla 2.5

The article presentation is always using articles “Global Options” instead of the specific “Article options” (which should overwriting global options).

thank you

dnp_theme

No in fact the chain of order goes like this (from low to high priority): Global – category – item – menu item.

I’m TOTALLY in love with this “no framework” template! Using it allowed most of the components I use to work with no conflict “right out of the gate!” EXCELLENT!!!! BRAVA !!!!! ENCORE !!!!!!!! I’m playing with it on a localhost machine and installed it OVER an existing site (a little background) but I noticed the the main (top) menu children fall BEHIND the slides. Off the top of your head, is there a fix I can implement for this?

Thanks in advance and… REALLLLLY Great work!

dnp_theme

Hey buddy, thanks for your input.

Please contact me on private, we will settle things down nice and easy. :)

Since I’m still “playing” with it I’ll pm you soon about the slide issue. I’ve got so much to play with that right now it’s no big deal.

In the mean time I noticed that you’re missing the Simple Blank Module in your package. Any way you can update your package and I’ll download it again?

dnp_theme

This is because I completely replaced all files of the quickstart with latest Joomla files and I missed the blank module, will fix all the stuff, no worry.

dnp_theme

Wait a minute, there is mod_blank in the Quickstart, that is it. It’s not as a separate module installation package that is true.

I am going to improve this module too someday. You know, there is a 1kb database field limit for Joomla database, I could make this module read and update a file in it’s cache folder (a new folder inside the module) for more that just 1kb.

Hope this helps,
Danny

By quickstart I’m assuming you’re talking about the entire installation, however I’m not using the quickstart. I’ve installed the template and the modules. My package has only 3 modules in it. Login Register Portfolio and slider. The Template says it’s ver 1.0. Have you updated the entire package? Should I redownload?

I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying your template and it’s “cleanness”! The lack of .js conflicts is Sooooo freakin’ refreshing!! Outstanding work!

dnp_theme

I have uploaded a new version 1.0.1, please re-download. Check bottom item page for changelog. You can use the simple blank module from the quickstart, there is no real need to install it normal way, you can install via discovery with no problem whatsoever.

About the JS conflict, you will never have such issue. :) You only have to make sure all your extensions are not loading jQuery 50 times. If you are using K2, it is automatically handled by the template depending on K2 settings. If you are using other extension that’s loading jQuery, you must disable loading jQuery within that extension, not because conflict, but to avoid loading jQuery multiple times.

Thanks for your support man, really appreciate :)

Just purchased this template, but a lot of the extension i use are not working with this template, theses extensions do work fine in any other template provider, i have used before, please advice.

Regards Daniel

dnp_theme

Send me your site link via PM and a list of extensions you use and not working, although I don’t think it is because my template, no no.

dnp_theme

You cannot expect everything to work when you have features like safe_mode = On or error_reporting = On, they are for code development only and not webdesign or front-end development.
