Hello, Re. he pop up notification when adding/editing cart – How would I change this to automatically disappear after say 3 seconds. From a usability point of view I think that would be a more sensible method, currently the customer needs to click the X? Hope you can help. Kind Regards

PS – Great Work

nicole_89

Hi

I added a new panel option under Theme settings > Misc > Notification hide timeout where you can input the number of milliseconds until the notification message is hidden, for 3 seconds you need to enter 3000.

This setting is currently available on my demo and it will be available in the next release that I will make tomorrow.

Hi. I have same issue as Anoirhoumou posted 16 days ago below

Thanks for the theme.. Amazing.. I have updated it to opencart 1.5.5.1 mainly because of i wanted to use 2 logos.. one for the homepage and the other one for the rest of the website.. updated it successfully but the problem i face is that i have followed your instructions go the theme settings Theme settings > Misc > Homepage logo image.. but I have done that and I cant seem to see it..

Further to your instruction to Anoirhoumou, I can confirm that i have uploaded homepage logo to the theme directory and path is correct. Furthermore, when saved the field does not seem to hold the path to the file and appears blank.

Look forward to your advice/fix for this bug?

Hi, thank you for the great theme. I have a little problem, this might be a stupid question, but I’m not sure how to fix it. It my products page the products are not showing as a grid, but as a list. Can you please take a look at it? Thanks! http://teatime.onlinewebshop.net/index.php?route=product/category&path=59
nicole_89

Hi

I think that you have a cookie set from the previous theme that set the list view, please clear your browser cache and it will show products as grid.

hiya- is there a way to change backgrounds globally? Mine seems to have to change each page individually-

nicole_89

Hi

Background image is the same for all pages except homepage where the slider covers the whole screen and it’s not visible.

There is no page specific background setting, only global.

Maybe there is some saving problems with your installation, check if the background setting is saved.

If it still doesn’t work please provide me temporary admin access and I will check what is wrong.

Hi Nico, I have some question, is there any way to add free text page at left side? I want to make about us page at left side (with list of product) but It seems only available for product list. Also, how to update the theme with your last update without any changes in existing customization that I’ve already did? – Thanks!

nicole_89

Hi

Currently the only way to add new menu items is to manually edit /template/common/header.tpl and add a new list item

<li><a href="http://yoururl">My link</a></li>
context code to see where to add the html code below
<div id="menu" class="clearfix not_mobile">
  <ul>
    <?php foreach ($categories as $category) { ?>
    <li><a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['name']; ?></a>
      <?php if ($category['children']) { ?>
      <div>
        <?php for ($i = 0; $i < count($category['children']);) { ?>
        <ul>
          <?php $j = $i + ceil(count($category['children']) / $category['column']); ?>
          <?php for (; $i < $j; $i++) { ?>
          <?php if (isset($category['children'][$i])) { ?>
          <li><a href="<?php echo $category['children'][$i]['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['children'][$i]['name']; ?></a></li>
          <?php } ?>
          <?php } ?>
        </ul>
        <?php } ?>
      </div>
      <?php } ?>
    </li>
    <?php } ?>

<li><a href="http://yoururl">My link</a></li>

  </ul>
</div>

To keep panel settings after update you will need to backup and restore /nico_theme_editor/settings.inc and /nico_theme_editor/editor_settings.css files, these two files contain all panel settings.

Hey Nicole! Hope everything is good. Sorry to bother you again, i’m new with OpenCart… :( just a doubt. There is any chance to put the page About or another TEXT page in the Menu? Thanks a lot :)

Ah!! An i’m having an issue with the ITEM image. Is displayed ok in the category page, but if i select item and go to check it out, the big image is not displaying. Any idea why? I already checked the Item setup and i put images in the right places, so i’m not sure why this error.

Just saw the comment above about TEXT pages.. So nevermind about it. Still the IMAGE problem in items… i just dont understand why.

Thanks a lot Nicole as always for your nice and kind support!

nicole_89

Hi

The product image is small because you entered 6 x 1024 by mistake for product image popup size in admin / system / settings/ image you need to enter 680 x 1024 :)

Thank you.

nicolecurioni

........................ omg….. no comment…. please dont hate me jajajajaja :P thanks Nicole have a good day! :D

nicolecurioni

Ok one last question :P why the icon in the fullscreen main page seems like is always loading? See in the middle of the site? There is any option to take it away?

http://shop.nicolecurioni.com/index.php?route=common/home
nicole_89

This happens because the slider module is added twice on homepage, you need to remove one of them, you must have only one row like here http://nico.nicolette.ro/docs/#!/slider you can do this from admin > modules > slideshow and make sure that there is only one row.

hi there, i’m very interested in this theme. i know that its fully responsive, although when viewing your preview on and iPhone (safari) i notice that the menu bar on the homepage turns into a pretty bland looking dropdown menu that it overlayed over the entire home page. is this customizable to retain it’s full screen properties and not turn into a dropdown?

nicole_89

Hi

Currently the menu for mobile is displayed using a standard html select and the behavior and looks depends on the browser implementation , I will change the mobile menu to a better solution that will keep the look of the theme in the next release.

Default-user

that’s great news! any idea when this will be?

I will release the change with the improved mobile menu next week.

Hi there,

Could you please help me on the following things on the shopping cart page.

- how to hide the total weight : Shopping cart (xxkg) ?

- under the product name, the whole content of the options is not shown (if my option text is long it is just cut) + I would like it to be align:left

- some options cost extra money, how can I show the extra cost related to each option ?

Thank you for your support

nicole_89

Hi

You can hide weight from opencart admin > system > settings > your store > option > Display Weight on Cart Page

You are reffering to product page options? http://nico.nicolette.ro/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_26&product_id=42 I don’t see this problem on my demo store, please provide me the url with the problem so I can check what is causing it.

On my demo store the cost for each option is displayed after option name http://nico.nicolette.ro/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_26&product_id=42 I think you disabled some setting in the opencart admin unfortunately I don’t know how this can be disabled to help you.

Hi, I sent you an email on March 19th about this, and though I haven’t heard back I’m doubting that you received it!

I was talking about the page you get when you clic on “View Cart” – unfortunately I cannot provide access to the site as it’s being built locally.

The option text doesn’t show entirely (too many characters?) and when it does show, I would need the pricing detail to show as well after each option. Also it would look nicer if the options were aligned on the left. Product pages are working just fine :)

Does it make any sense to you ?

Thank you for your great support. A.

nicole_89

Hi

Sorry the email was lost in the spam folder, I will check it more often. I sent you the solution for cart options price.

You can change the length of the options text to make it longer in the files that I sent you, in catalog/controller/checkout/cart.php change 20 to a bigger value.

'value' => (utf8_strlen($value) > 20 ? utf8_substr($value, 0, 20) . '..' : $value)

The options text is centered and it doesn’t have any table or other formatting, you will need to change how the product options text is shown in the cart, for example add a small table so that you can align the price on the right but this can make the table big and look ugly for many product options.

Default-user

Hi, thanks for the answers. I replaced the files including the modification ‘price’ => $option[‘price’], It’s “working” but it’s showing the final price – not the cost related to each option. What can I do ? Thank you

nicole_89

Sorry I hurried and made a mistake and wrote $product instead of $option, the correct code in cart.tpl is

<?php if (isset($option['price'])) echo ' - <b>' . $option['price'] . '</b>' ; ?>

But unfortunately still doesn’t work because opencart does not store price in the $option object, it writes the same data as weight in the price field, this is an opencart bug but I think it passed without notice because probably nobody uses the price field for option on cart page.

You can see the bug yourself in catalog/controller/checkout/cart.php by adding

var_dump($product['option']);

on line 202 in the foreach ($products as $product) loop and you will see that the price field has the same data as weight instead of price.

The only way you can finish adding this feature is to fix the opencart bug, you can try to report it to the opencart team or if you know some php trace the source of the bug and fix it.

Hello, I just bought this theme and i want to ask something (I don’t know if anyone ask tihs before, I read most of the comments but I didn’t see it)

Can costumers add products to cart while they are in category page or do they have to display product page.

Hi

You can show add to cart for products on category page from Theme panel > Theme options > Category page > Show product add to cart

Is anyone else having issues with category descriptions and information not showing up with this theme? I will put in a description for a category and all the info shows up in the default theme. It does not show up in the Nico theme. What gives?

nicole_89

Hi

Category info is hidden by default, you can enable it from the Theme Panel > Theme options > Show category info

Default-user

OK Thanks. Sorry for all the questions. New to opencart and it seems like there are too many controls. I am more an arrow key, start, select, A and B kinda guy. Is there a way to get it to not flicker between my logo and the “site title” when the page loads?

Default-user

nevermind. I think I had show both on. Thanks

Default-user

Actually I changed all of the settings that you pointed out and I still get a quick show of the logo text before it goes to the logo and I clicked show category info and it still isn’t working for me. I am confused.

Default-user

Also tried to get a category to be just a link to an info page but I failed. I followed the instructions from above. Still won’t work. I also created an About Layout and made a category that overrides to it but it does not work. It worked for my gallery layout but I do not know why it does not work for the about. I want to have a store and then 3 links below it in the categories area, services, gallery, and about. Would be possible even if the category text would show up ( minus that dumb “there are no products in the category” or if the external link code you provided above would work for me. Opencart is becoming a maze of dead ends.

nicole_89

To add a link for a normal page (not category) in the left menu you need to edit /template/common/header.tpl currently this is the only method.

you will need to add a new list item with a link

<li><a href="http://yoururl">Services</a></li>

<div id="menu" class="clearfix not_mobile">
  <ul>
    <?php foreach ($categories as $category) { ?>
    <li><a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['name']; ?></a>
      <?php if ($category['children']) { ?>
      <div>
        <?php for ($i = 0; $i < count($category['children']) { ?>
        <ul>
          <?php $j = $i + ceil(count($category['children']) / $category['column']); ?>
          <?php for (; $i < $j; $i++) { ?>
          <?php if (isset($category['children'][$i])) { ?>
          <li><a href="<?php echo $category['children'][$i]['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['children'][$i]['name']; ?></a></li>
          <?php } ?>
          <?php } ?>
        </ul>
        <?php } ?>
      </div>
      <?php } ?>
    </li>
    <?php } ?>

<li><a href="http://yoururl">Services</a></li>
<li><a href="http://yoururl">Gallery</a></li>
<li><a href="http://yoururl">About</a></li>

</ul>

So how do I make the information show up that I include in Categories. It is under General, Description. I can fill this out till it overflows and it won’t show up on your theme for me.

Default-user

And now my site is having broken code issues. I must have missed something.

nicole_89

What broken code does your store have? invalid html or php errors?

Please remember to have backups before changing any code so you can recover if some code change you make breaks something.

Default-user

Not sure. www.modelemergency.com It is just a bunch of warnings. All I did was delete the old theme. So the new theme you uploaded is still there and being called on. Not sure what is happening . Also. Is there a way to get the data information from the Categories to show up?

nicole_89

As I said in the email that I sent, you need to rename your theme to nico, there are some paths hardcoded, it worked until now because there was the old theme with this name, please rename your theme folder to nico and it will work.

Thanks so much. That fixed it. Hope that is all for now. You’ve been super helpful.

Hi, I have purchased this item and some issues in my website is regarding the product price. When I add a product with 35.00 , It shows 22.15 in store front end. There is no tax assigned to product. Shipping is free. What will be the problem with this price issue? Can you please help me with your valuable instructions? Thanks in advance.

nicole_89

Hi

The theme does not alter in any way the price that is coming from opencart, this is an opencart issue.

You can check this by temporary using the default theme.

I’m not sure what can cause this, I found a forum thread about a similar problem, maybe this is the same problem http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=69127

Hi! Is there any way to put the menu on top, instead of lateral left? I already search css, but i can’t change it… Thank you. Excelente theme!

nicole_89

Hi

The theme is designed to have the menu on left, changing it to top requires changing the whole theme layout and this almost means changing the whole theme and it will require a large amount of work and time.

Nicole,

I am having issues with the theme. It flickers the name of the site before showing the logo upon loading site.

I want to add links to the the area where the categories are supposed to show up. I followed your instructions above but it did not work.

Also when I apply changes to your theme settings and hit save they do not save. Please assist.

nicole_89

Hi

Do you have the latest version installed? the name flicker problem was solved in a previous release.

I answered to your previous comment on how to add links to other pages in categories menu on the left.

For the panel saving please check file permissions for settings.inc and editor_settings.css like described here http://nico.nicolette.ro/docs/#!/installation

If it still doesn’t work please provide me temporary admin access to your store using the contact form and I will fix it.

Default-user

I downloaded the files again. Trying to upload. If I still have issues I will get back to you. Thanks

Default-user

I sent you the info. It looks like you fixed it. Was there something I was doing wrong? Thanks for fixing it. Now I can move to the next step.

nicole_89

I replied to the email and explained what was wrong, you were adding info pages as categories to show on the left menu instead of just adding the links to the info pages already added, I edited /template/common/header.tpl and added the links and removed the categories.

I uploaded a new copy of the theme in nico_22mar folder and made all changes there, you can rename the folder back to nico and then change the theme in the admin, is better to have the folder named that way so that the theme works properly.

Default-user

I see what you did…well sort of. I tried to do this as well. I could not get it to work so I left the Categories there. Would have worked the same if I could actually input information into the Category area and have it appear in the website. I have clicked on that setting until my head explodes with no final result. The information would be helpful if it showed up. And if I could get rid of that silly “there are no items in this category.” So I want to replicate this in my sister site called 3-switch.com. But I have tried uploading your theme to its directory but none of the downloads result in a working site. I also tried deleting all of the files and just adding that as a new site to opencart within modelemergency.com but that did not work either.

I really like your theme and I want all of my sites to be streamlined so I know how to control each the same. for example www.unofficialstpatsday.com is having issues with the repeating of the categories after entering the store.

Ideally I would be able to create a category and put all the info there and have it actually show up when I click on the category. And not have the “there are no products in this category”. Then there would be no reason to hardcode each link into the header.tpl which obviously works and I thank you for getting it to work on Model Emergency. But since it seems I was inept in accomplishing it on my own it would be better if I could use the functions within opencart which seem ample and powerful.

Thanks a bunch for your help. PFP

nicole_89

Unfortunately opencart does not have this feature by default, categories page can’t behave like information pages where you can add text or other elements, they can only display products.

That is why you need to manually add the information pages links to the categories menu from header.tpl because opencart only adds categories links to the menu.

Default-user

Well, In the category area in admin I can add information and photos and such. With your theme however that information fails to appear on the site.

nicole_89

The category description and photo can be enabled from Theme panel > Theme options > Category page > Show category info

Hey Nicole, i remeber how to put a new “Page” in the menu in Footer.tpl but what about a Page with sub-menu? I mean, i need to insert this:

UNIVERSE (as text only, nothing in this “page” is just a title”

- editorials (external link to a blog – submenu page)

- campaigns (external link to a blog – submenu page)

So is pretty clear how to put a new page, but i’m not sure about the sub-menu thing… :( thaanks as always

nicole_89

Hi

If you want to add submenus you will need to put another un ordered list inside the new list item, here is how

Instead of

  <li><a href="http://yoururl">Universe</a></li> 

You will need to add

  <li class="parent"><a href="#">Universe</a>
  <div>
    <ul>
        <li><a href="http://your_url">Editorials</a></li>
        <li><a href="http://your_url">Campaigns</a></li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  </li>

You need to make the changes in /template/common/header.tpl

Context code

<div id="menu" class="clearfix not_mobile">
  <ul>
    <?php foreach ($categories as $category) { ?>
    <li><a href="<?php echo $category['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['name']; ?></a>
      <?php if ($category['children']) { ?>
      <div>
        <?php for ($i = 0; $i < count($category['children']) { ?>
        <ul>
          <?php $j = $i + ceil(count($category['children']) / $category['column']); ?>
          <?php for (; $i < $j; $i++) { ?>
          <?php if (isset($category['children'][$i])) { ?>
          <li><a href="<?php echo $category['children'][$i]['href']; ?>"><?php echo $category['children'][$i]['name']; ?></a></li>
          <?php } ?>
          <?php } ?>
        </ul>
        <?php } ?>
      </div>
      <?php } ?>
    </li>
    <?php } ?>

    <li class="parent"><a href="#">Universe</a>
    <div>
     <ul>
      <li><a href="http://your_url">Editorials</a></li>
      <li><a href="http://your_url">Campaigns</a></li>
     </ul>

Thanks a lot!! :) Two more questions, in Home page, when slider change the image, there is a “white space” between each photo. Any idea how to take that off??

And if you check the sub-menu color changes from Home to whatever else page. I’m trying changing colors but submenu is always in the same menu background color.. :/

http://coco-safari.com/
nicolecurioni

Forget it, just fixed from stylesheet files :) I only steel having the “white space” prpblem on slideshow

nicole_89

The white space is added by opencart when resizing the uploaded image, this is a known opencart limitation.

You can see here http://coco-safari.com/image/cache/data/slider2-1280x1024.jpg that the white space is part of the image.

The easiest way to get rid of the white space is to manually resize the image to the slider size, in this case 1280×1024 or correct aspect ratio before uploading to opencart.

The hardest way is to patch opencart to make it resize the image properly, here is a tutorial for this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7081860/remove-the-image-resize-ratio-in-opencart

Hi,

I found a problem with my site which is using your theme. The payment section is not working in Iphone or Ipad. I am using paypal with credit/debit cards option for payment and it force me to download an app for iphone to make payment. But even though it is having that app installed, the payment is not working well on Iphone/ Ipad. Please can you give me any idea about this? Thanks in advance.

nicole_89

Hi

The paypal payment is done on their servers and you can’t control how it’s done, after the checkout is complete opencart redirects to paypal for payment and it has no control on that process.

I found this thread https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2567347?start=30&tstart=0 that states there is a problem with ipad and paypal.

I think there is some sort of security thing that must be enabled or something like that.

You need to contact paypal or apple support to assist you with this issue.

Default-user

I have contacted paypal and they are saying the issue is with the theme coding itself. When redirected to paypal page, it is going to an old page which PayPal says is outdated. (Here is the link for you to check https://mobile.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/) can you please advise if there is anything else we can do to resolve this? Perhaps a fix in the coding itself to replace the above link?

nicole_89

The theme only manages the visual part of the website and it does not alter or manage anything related to internals like payment.

I still think that this is a paypal problem and not opencart because paypal should redirect the customer to the correct page based on mobile/not mobile detection.

The url that paypal provided you is for paypal mobile interface for users to check their balance etc, not for paypal payment processing necessary for opencart checkout.

I think they misunderstood what the problem really is.

I just checked the paypal gateway code from opencart /catalog/model/payment/pp_standard.php and the url is hardcoded https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr and I don’t see any url change for mobile or something like this.

You can try asking the opencart team for support on the opencart forums, I think they can better understand what the opencart paypal gateway limitations are.

Some paypal threads
