For new products you can set new product dates when creating a product. You can set from xx/xx/2013 to xx/xx/2014. I think it’s under the generals tab when you enter the sku

ShopShark

Hello, yes exactly it’s General Tab’s under the Weight*.

I’m having trouble installing the theme. When I log in to Magento and go to the system configuration screen I only see blog options and slideshow options. I don’t see Milano options anywhere. Any idea what I messed up?

ShopShark

Hello, for sure you mess up the code. Are you sure you have upload all the files? Please upload the files another time, if you have cpanel the fast way is:

1. Cpanel -> Files -> File Manager

2. select Web Root (public_html/www) or your

3. Upload the Milano_Quick_Start_Files_1_3_3_Magento_18.zip

4. Select the .zip file and Extract it

5. Visit your website again.

Default-user

Awesome! That worked. Thanks!

ShopShark

You are welcome!

on any page when I scroll down, there would be an arrow that comes out on the right side. When you click it, your page scrolls back up. How do I remove this arrow from the site?

ShopShark

Hello, you must go in:

1. system -> configuration -> Milano Options

2. General Options -> “Back To Top” Button = Disabled

3. Clear the cache

Really love this theme. Please add functionality for configurable products that allows AJAX switching of product images on the product page whenever a different attribute is selected.

ShopShark

Thank you, i will let you know as soon as we decide when to implement such functionality.

I’m trying to work out how to remove the “add to cart” button/link from the product list page?

ShopShark

Hello! try this!

Open /public_html/app/design/frontend/default/milano/template/catalog/product/list.phtml

Comment the code from the line 225 to 233:


<?php if($_product->isSaleable()): ?>
    <?php if (!($_product->getTypeInstance(true)->hasRequiredOptions($_product) || $_product->isGrouped())) { ?>
        <a href="<?php echo $this->getAddToCartUrl($_product); ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?>" class="btn-cart<?php if($_ajaxAddToCart) echo " ajax-addtocart="">"<?php if($_ajaxAddToCart): ?> data-id="<?php echo $_product->getId(); ?>"<?php endif; ?>><?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?></a>
    <?php } else { ?>
        <a href="<?php if($_ajaxAddToCart) echo $this->getUrl('ajax/index/options',array('product_id'=>$_product->getId())); else echo $this->getAddToCartUrl($_product); ?>" title="<?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?>" class="btn-cart<?php if($_ajaxAddToCart) echo " btn-quickview="">"<?php if($_ajaxAddToCart): ?> data-id="<?php echo $_product->getId(); ?>"<?php endif; ?>><?php echo $this->__('Add to Cart') ?></a>
    <?php }  ?>
<?php else: ?>
    <span class="availability out-of-stock"><span><?php echo $this->__('Out of stock') ?></span></span>
<?php endif; ?>

Great thanks!

ShopShark

You are welcome.

Great theme, thank you for making it:) I purchased it a few weeks ago and haver a quick question:

*Have you attempted to integrate any Magento Gift Wrapping Extensions with Milano? Just curious to know if this has been done.

Thanks!

ShopShark

Hello, thank you for the nice idea, unfortunately we do not have any Gift Wrapping extension in our plans.

Default-user

I was actually wondering if you have seen any 3rd party extensions successfully integrated with Milano. There are a few great ones, but I’m wondering about compatibility.

ShopShark

Yes, we have. Various product color swatch extensions work with no problems over Milano. If done in the right way, 3-rd party extensions should work right away with no or with minimal modification. Unfortunately a lot of them change heavily the original code, add or modify the layout or add CSS which overwrites some of the original classes, which works only with the default Magento theme. You should test them and use the money back option if not happy. There is no way we can test all of them. Also, in no way we guarantee compatibility with 3-rd party extensions. We guarantee, though, we have followed strictly the recommended and the best practices on building this Magento theme, so high level of compatibility could be expected.

Hello, I installed the theme without changing anything, and does not work the checkout … stops in step 3. It seems that something similar happened earlier, that should change in this file? to you will work correctly?

This person talks about a problem that I q is the same.

Default-user

Replace these files and did not work, back also download the complete package and I have the same result. The step that does not work is called “shipping method.”

ShopShark

Hello,please just send an email to support@shopshark.it with admin + FTP details and we will get back to you shortly.

ShopShark

Please upgrade to Milano 1.3.4. Both standalone and quickstart packages are available for download. The fix in 1.3.3 didn’t solve the problem for some specific set-ups. It is solved now in 1.3.4. You can easily upgrade bu uploading the files from the stand-alone package over your installation, recompile and clear/refresh the cache. Thank you for your patience!

i want 4-5 products images per product. How shall i add in this theme?

ShopShark

Hello, just upload the images, choose the one you would like to use in the category view:

http://milano.shopshark.eu/shoes.html/?___store=shoes

Another image you can use for the back image, and all the other to show the product details.

As you can see below you can add a video too.

http://milano.shopshark.eu/cool-shoes-1.html/?___store=shoes

The Menu button does not work on an Ipad or on my Droid. Is this a known problem?

ShopShark

Probably you have an error somewhere in the JavaScript code which then stops the execution of all the JavaScript libraries. The dropdowns, the mobile menu and the slider are run by JavaScript.

Default-user

Thank you for the advice. Looks like we have it in order now.

ShopShark

You are welcome!

Problem on product page!!!!!!

We purchased and installed the milano theme on our site. The product description, attributes, and the button “Add to cart” does not appear on the product page.

Thanks

ShopShark

If this is an old Magento installation, try disabling all the extensions and check if some of them are modifying the original Magento layout/blocks.

Default-user

no succes!?

ShopShark

Please consult a Magento developer on this or send us FTP and admin access to your installation. The most probable reason for that is a 3-rd party extension or template modifying the original Magento blocks.

I wish there were more layout options for the home page. My preference would be to have a two column home page with a small left column and for the slider to be formatted smaller in the large right column.

Where should I begin? Thanks.

ShopShark

You can achieve this, but you need to modify the layout and the CSS of the homepage blocks. Start by changing the homepage layout to two column in CMS -> Pages -> Milano Home Page -> Design -> Layout -> Two columns with left bar. You’ll need developer skills and some basic experience with Magento to complete it. Please consult a developer for further modification.

How can you get rid of the top bar? With the About us, customer service, links etc…

I know how to disable the links block but I want to get rid of the bar altogether.

Thanks,

ShopShark

You can remove it completely by editing this file:

/app/design/frontend/default/milano/template/page/html/header.phtml

Remove this part:

    <div class="header-small-container">
        <div class="header">
            <div class="header-left">
                <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('store_switcher') ?>
                <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('store_language') ?>
                <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('currency') ?>
                <div class="cms-header-links"><?php echo $this->getChildHtml('cms_header_links') ?></div>
            </div>
            <div class="header-right">
                <span class="welcome-msg"><?php echo $this->getWelcome() ?></span>
            </div>      
        </div>
    </div>

As you can see, removing this will also remove the store switcher, the store view (language) switcher, the currency switcher and the welcome message. If you remove it, you’ll not be able to switch between stores, languages and currencies.

Default-user

This worked perfectly. Thank you very much. I can’t reply to zhou’s message below, but I stated that I know how to remove the links block but I wanted to remove the entire bar.

ShopShark

You are welcome!

@ECUmedford

To get rid of those links its located in CMS – Static blocks called header links

ShopShark

Well you can just disable the CMS block, or you can remove it completely by editing this file:

/app/design/frontend/default/milano/template/page/html/header.phtml

Remove this part:

<div class="cms-header-links"><?php echo $this->getChildHtml('cms_header_links') ?></div>

Hello i got some problems when i change the category names they are showing me on one coloms even the subcategories/subcategories and categories. Why is not setting to 2 collons like in demo? What can i do also to get right of custom html block ? I am using clothing version.

ShopShark

The category layout option (single column or two columns with left sidebar) is made in Catalog -> Manage Categories -> [The Category You Want To Edit] -> Display Settings -> Single Column Layout -> Yes/No. Set all the categories you want with two column layout to No.

I mention about the menu style – submenu

ShopShark

Can you, please, send us a screenshot on support@shopshark.it? All the options for the MegaMenu are described in the documentation – please check if it can help. If not – we’ll be glad to help you.

Hello,

Could u guys please give me the right measures of a photo for the slide? thank you I need the exact width .

ShopShark

Hello, all the examples are included inside the zip file, PSD folder / Milano-Banners.rar files.

If you are a Mac user, please use stuffit expander to extract the files.

Default-user

i tried everything to include a video, I copy your codes but it doesn’t work

ShopShark

How to include a video is described in the Revolution slider documentation. Please check it if it helps. If it doesn’t work for you we’ll be glad to help you.

A few more formatting questions:

1) How do you modify the length of the product titles on the category listings page. It cuts it off at one line, but I would like it to go 2 or 3 lines.

2) On the product page…what if I want to move the links above the image to below the image?

3) On the product page I want to give equal space for the photo section and for the product info section so that the page is split 50/50.

ShopShark

1. You can achieve this by modifying this file: /app/design/frontend/default/milano/template/catalog/product/list.phtml

There is a switch section like this:
if(!$_singleColumnMode){ 

        //Left Column Mode
        switch($_columnCount){
            case 3:
                $imgSize = 210;
                $trimSize = 35;
                break;
            case 4:
                $imgSize = 145;
                $trimSize = 25;
                break;
            case 5:
                $imgSize = $smallImgSize = 145;
                $bigImgSize = 340;
                $trimSize = $smallImgTrimSize = 25;
                $bigImgTrimSize = 45;
                break;
        }

    } else { 

        //Single Column Mode
        switch($_columnCount){
            case 3:
                $imgSize = 275;
                $trimSize = 35;
                break;
            case 4:
                $imgSize = 195;
                $trimSize = 30;
                break;
            case 5:
                $imgSize = $smallImgSize = 195;
                $bigImgSize = 435;
                $trimSize = $smallImgTrimSize = 30;
                $bigImgTrimSize = 45;
                break;
        }

    }

What you want to change is the variable $trimSize to the number of the letters you want in the title.

2. and 3. You’ll need to modify the CSS for that.

Default-user

I am using the 4 column format. I tried changing the $trimSize and this has no effect on the front end. I tried clearing the Magento cache and no luck. I wasn’t sure with $trimSize to change so I tried them all.

Hello, the slider doesn’t change when video is added.

<div class="caption fade fullscreenvideo" data-autoplay="true" data-nextslideatend="true" data-x="0" data-y="0" data-speed="500" data-start="10" data-easing="easeOutBack"> <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/29298709?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0;api=1" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe> </div>

Hello!

1. Does this theme support greek characters? 2. Is there any way to add google fonts in the theme? 3. Products have only one image in the product view or there is a gallery?

ShopShark

Hi, let me answer to your questions one by one:

  1. Unfortunately the theme does not support Greek characters, but if you wish you can change the font with another one which supports Greek characters and that will work.
  2. You can install Google fonts if you add manually the code, also that would be included in our next release.
  3. It is possible to have more than one image of the product and you can add video as well.

Hi, My development team has made many customizations to the theme and now the mobile responsive design has many problems. What is the easiest way to remove responsive design for mobile devices while we work on fixing the issues? Thank you!

ShopShark

Hi, try the following:

1. open the file /app/design/frontend/default/milano/layout/page.xml

2. around line 36 you’ll find code like this:

<action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/responsive.css</stylesheet></action>

3. comment it like this:

<!-- action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/responsive.css</stylesheet></action -->

This will remove the responsive features for Milano.
