Hi, need your help.

Can’t seems to save the theme setting and the slider seems odd.

Hi

For theme settings saving you need to check for write permissions for settings.inc and editor_settings.css located in nico/nico_theme_editor you can find more info here http://nico.nicolette.ro/docs/#!/installation

I think the slider does not scroll properly because there is only one slide, try to add at least one more.

The duplicate category from category pages show because by default opencart has category module enabled for category pages, you need to disable it from admin > extensions > modules > category and disable the one that has layout = category.

silverline

thank you for your guides it works now, however when I changed the font it does not save, any ideas?

nicole_89

Please tell me the exact font that is not working so I can check what is wrong.

Thanks.

silverline

basically all the fonts, When I click on save then it’ll revert to a subfont. Is there a file or directory that I need to enable CHMOD 0777?

nicole_89

You need to make settings.inc and editor_settings.css writable by php 0777 will also work, you can find more info here http://nico.nicolette.ro/docs/#!/installation

Also the categories appearing duplicate at the side

Can the category/product pages be easily made to be 100% of the page (well besides the left side menu) and still maintain the responsiveness?

Hi

You mean fluid width layout? The theme is designed with fixed width and it won’t work with fluid width without major css changes.

Default-user

Yeah, that’s exactly what I meant, a fluid layout.

Hey could you have a look at my mobile site? It looks like some files are missing as the theme doesn’t work on mobiles ie iOs and Android. I’d truly appreciate it if you could tell me whats going on. Thanks

Hey Nicole,

Is it possible to have a different homepage for when someone goes to our site via mobile. We would like to create a mobile subdomain at www.newtress.com as we notice that mobile users are having a hard time with the slider.

nicole_89

Hi

You can’t have different content for mobile and pc with the default opencart features, however you can hide the slider or any other elements for mobile browsers by adding display:none to the elements you want to hide in responsive.css

Newtress
Newtress Purchased

Does this include any menu items?

nicole_89

You can only hide the whole menu, it doesn’t work on individual menu items because these are dynamic (set from opencart admin) and don’t include unique id or classes to be able to hide them from css.

Hey Nicole,

We have tried removing certain elements with a display: none, including ei-slider, ei-title, tf-content and even added in tf-bg. How do we get rid of the slider on mobile devices and replace it with a mobile-optimized static image as it just loads way too slowly.

nicole_89

Hi

You can hide elements for mobile only by editing stylesheet/responsive.css and add display:none for the elements for each media query.

Opencart does not provide different images or even html code for mobile devices, to make this change you need to have a different html code in template/module/slideshow.tpl with different images hardcoded and then show the html only for mobile devices with the same logic as the above solution but display:block instead of none.

Hello, I’m having a problem with the share option. It wouldn’t appear. Used to work fine locally but doesn’t now the site is live. What should I look out for ? Thanks for your great theme !

nicole_89

Hi

The first thing you should check is that you don’t have javascript errors, you can do this in firefox from tools > web developer > error console or from firebug.

Also check if you have uploaded all files on your live store, especially javascript files.

You can check for missing files with firebug, go to net tab and refresh the page and then look for status = 404 file not found.

Hey Nicole, Thanks for sorting out my problems with the mobile site. Although there are two more things I need to ask:

On the mobile site the logo isn’t resizing and looks huge when accessed through a mobile site. Is there an option that Ive missed in the theme settings?

Secondly, sorry about asking this here, but since you’ve had the answer to everything before I thought i’d give it a try. I am unable to set up my seo in opencart. as soon as i click use seo friendly links, I am unable to redirect from the home screen to any other part of the website. Ive changed the name to .htaccess and still nothing. what do you suggest? (my host.. godaddy employ trained monkeys that dont help and opencart is sending me to them) give me the name of the problem and i’ll search for the answer.

Thanks ever so much Tom

nicole_89

Hi

You can make the logo smaller by editing responsive.css and adding a smaller width for #header #logo a img

Search for Phone Portrait and Phone Landscape and add

#header #logo a img
{
   width:100px;/*change with desired width*/
}

To enable seo you must first rename htaccess and them enable it from the opencart admin > system > settings > your store > server > Use SEO URL’s

Hi there

would like to remove the default items and items per page option boxes and the add to wish list and add to compare buttons in products pages in this theme.

Thanks, Raz

nicole_89

Hi

Compare and wishlist can be hidden from Theme options > Product page > Show wishlist, compare

Items per page and sorting can be hidden by adding

.product-filter
{
   display:none;
}

in stylesheet/stylesheet.css

Hey sweetie!! How’s everything? :) I have a doubt regarding the home page slide. I saw that OpenCart doesn’t let me upload any photo wich is more than 300kb. But my pictures looks really bad… i need better resolution!! Any idea, or suggestion for fix that?? :(

nicole_89

Hi

The 300kb limit is built in the opencart code, the only way to get around it is to edit opencart files and comment that part of the code, you can find how to do this here http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=13012&hilit=300KB

The file to edit is admin\controller\common\filemanager.php and just comment the code with the limitation

if ($this->request->files['image']['size'] > 300000) {
    $json['error'] = $this->language->get('error_file_size');
}

Hi Nicole,

Having a slight challenge the order of the banner images, and order of the Home Slider text.

Can you tell me what the default order is for the banner images so that I can ensure that my Home Slider captions match up with the appropriate image.

Many thanks

Graeme

nicole_89

Hi

Opencart orders the slides in reverse alphabetical order, you just need to keep the slide names sorted this way and they will match with the captions.

You can change the way opencart orders the slides, more info here http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=44026 and here http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?t=34258

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. I added a sort_order field to the banner_image table instead. This seems to add the greater flexibility.

Hi,

Ive just bought this theme and I have a problem with setting button. Its not visible any time.

Can you please help me?

Thanks,

nicole_89

Hi

Do you mean the customize theme button at the bottom? The button is visible on your store only when you are authenticated in the admin area.

Default-user

Hello,

Yes that is what I mean. Its fixed now. I am using multistore and there was a problem with admin address as it was showing different URL.

Thanks

Whenever you get a chance can you please update your changelog to reflect the changes to the site. We are using WinMerge to blend the changes as before to our site. Is this still the correct link for your Changelog?

Hey Nico,

This is an SOS. We need help in the worst way possible. Our site is just breaking down everywhere. Check us out at http://www.newtress.com and help us fix the footer and product pages.

nicole_89

Hi

You added a javascript code, something CS Bar that is incomplete, it has a start script tag but it does not have an ending tag and this breaks the html making footer icons visible because they have a different location in the dom.

You need to add the complete javascript snippet or remove it. This is the code that breaks your staore.

    <!-- CS Bar -->
<script type='text/javascript'>
(function(){var script = document.createElement('script');
script.type = 'text/javascript';
script.src = ((document.location.protocol == 'https:') ? 'https://' : 'http://') +
    'app.cdn-cs.com/b/2ZFi3

Hi, How can I make the header background translucent like it was on installation? Since experimenting with color options, I can’t get it back to being “See through”. On smaller screens, the slider images are covered up by the menu, so you need to be able to see through it, or remove the background to the menu altogether. Can you please help? Also, what do I put in the Twitter feed box? I’ve tried every combination of the Twitter URL eg. http://www.Twitter.com/reallyreally7 through to just reallyreally7 but it just says Twitter Feed Loading. The Facebook feed works fine.Please help, many thanks. (See www.really-really.com)

nicole_89

Hi

Because the color picker used in the theme panel does not have a transparency input the transparency is lost when changing the color for left menu, this is an old issue but I didn’t found a decent color picker that has this option to replace it.

I will try to hack the existing one to add this option in a future release until then the only way to change the color and keep transparency is to manually edit stylesheet/thumbflip.css line 243 for homepage and stylesheet/stylesheet.css line 409 for the other pages and change the background color for #header

#header {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
}

You can use this tool http://hex2rgba.devoth.com/ to convert hex colors to rgba and also specify the desired transparency.

For twitter you only need to enter the profile name reallyreally7 in Theme settings > Social band > Twitter profile

You must also make sure you have a widget added to your twitter account to enable the api https://twitter.com/settings/widgets/

Hi Nicole, I’ve done as you asked, but no matter what I do, it won’t make it transparent. Is there some other code elsewhere that is spoiling things maybe? It seems that the theme editor is over-riding any settings in the CSS. I could really do with this fixed, I have an unhappy client who is reluctant to add products until it is sorted and is losing money daily. It’s not making me look good. As much as I really don’t want to go through the set up again – If I just reset it back to the default settings will it go back to transparent? Please, please find a solution!

nicole_89

Hi

Resetting will help but you can also override the panel color by adding !important.

#header {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6) !important;
}
tallguy1000

Fantastic!!! Thanks, that’s worked. I need to do the same now with the menu background. I’ve tried doing the same thing in the thumbflip.css menu section but no joy. ~Could you tell me what line I need to alter to make the menu background transparent and it’s job done? Thanks again.

nicole_89

You also need to overwrite panel color for menu background, just add

div#menu > div
{
   background:transparent !important;
}

to remove background color or the following to add a smaller transparency

div#menu > div
{
   background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.6) !important;
}

in stylesheet/stylesheet.css

Message to Newtress – I just looked at your website and, I could be wrong, but it appears you’ve added third party plug-ins that simply aren’t responsive, so your site is not adapting properly to the correct screen size of the viewer. It looks good on a large screen though.

Is it possible to add html tags to the description section of the slider text? I tried added a link and see the code on the homepage.

nicole_89

Hi

Html tags are escaped for security to protect against XSS but you can enable html tags for slideshow description by editing /template/module/slideshow.tpl line 58 and change

<?php echo $_nico_settings['slider_text'][$_slide_counter]['description'];?>
with
<?php echo html_entity_decode($_nico_settings['slider_text'][$_slide_counter]['description']);?>

Small issue, 2 of my 3 slider images (using thumbflip) are showing on the left menu bar of the category pages only, below the categories. http://paracordsurvivalbracelet.net/index.php?route=product/category&path=20

Thanks!

nicole_89

This is not related to slider, you added the banner module using the same images on the left column.

Edit banner module and remove the row that has layout = column left.

Hello

I have installed nico theme successfully. its working fine for everything except slider images on mobile. They doesn’t seem to be good enough.

Please let me know. This is a responsive theme and it should take care for images of slider.

you can check http://www.jewellerica.com on mobile.

Thanks and hope for get a reply soon

nicole_89

Hi

What do you mean by good enough, could you give me more details? I tested your store on mobile and the slider images are resized according to viewport.

Please Check my store on desktop and mobile both and then you find what i am asking about homepage slider images. On mobile Images do not resize properly. Please help.

nicole_89

I checked your store and the images are resized but they are centered and on portrait mode on mobile devices the image margins might not be visible because of image centering, probably this is why you think that something is wrong.

Because the image must cover the entire screen the image is stretched and centered.

To avoid this issue you can use images that have the most important content in the center or use a different aspect ratio for images.
