Hi,

I will help you with installation.

Send me your host panel login through my Themeforest profile contact form.

And let me know if I should install demo content for which layout.

Hello,

Are the multiple layouts flexible? Meaning can I pick and choose where I want things to go or are they predefined layouts?

Thanks!

SokoThemes

The layouts are not pick and go. You have to set the preferred settings in the admin panel. Just the way it works on all OpenCart themes.

To make it easy for clients, I have provided demo content SQL dump files so that you can install a start-with site for all of the layouts on the demo.

Let me know if you have any more queries before you purchase this theme.

Is it easy enough for me to move things around to my liking though? Such as if I wanted my homepage to have a left side bar, content slider at top with featured and new products below the slider.

SokoThemes

Yes, its easy to have a left sidebar and right sidebar on any page you want.

I recommend that you download OpenCart CMS first and look at how it works, that will be a good starting point before buying the theme.

Hi, just bought your theme. How can we change the layout according to the different samples? we want to set it up like: http://sokothemes.com/themes/opencart/selling/layout3/

rgds, larkje

SokoThemes

Hi,

You could install the layout3 demo content or I can help you set it up by giving me admin login. I created demo content to avoid writing instructions for each layout installation. The documentation could have been too long so I only included layout 1 set up in the documentation.

I hope you understand. And am willing to set up layout 3 demo if you give admin login.

Kindest regards,
Peter

I installed the theme and everything is working great except one thing… I can not get my social block to work correctly. The twiiter feed shows, but I get an error with facebook. My url is www.zimras.com/store.

Also, while the instructions are well written and easy to follow, the only thing I can not get is how to add the 3 small banners to the right of the main slider.

Anyhow, any help would be awesome! Thank tou!

SokoThemes

Hello,

1. I have seen your Facebook page is not working correctly. There are some issues with custom Facebook likebox lately due to changes in FB. I recommend that you use Facebook Page ID for now. Your page ID is 208292609239622. I am working on fixing this issue in the next release, but for now, kindly use this temporary fix.

2. Three side banners as shown in layout 1
Each banner should have: 245px width and 120px height and make sure the position selected is “ST Banner Top”.
And the slideshow should have position as “ST Slideshow Top

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Hello, I have purchased this theme today and I am struggling to get it to work right. I downloaded opencart 1.5.4 and then downloaded your theme.

The them is relatively like your demo but there is no slide show. Also how do I change to the different template versions and how do I add your demo images?

Please help – Thank you regards,

SokoThemes

Hi,

Thanks for buying the theme and I will help you.

Kindly email me through my Themeforest profile contact form with your website link so that I can have a look at the slideshow issue. Have you selected the right layout position on the slideshow settings? This might be a possibility for the error.

The layouts for the demos are not plug-and-play hence you have to set layout positions for the each module in a bid to achieve a desired layout style. In essence, the layouts are not limited to those provided on the demos but the possibilities on what you can produce as layout style are endless.

I have also provided demo sample content (for all the demo layouts) which you can install on your server and thus reduce the time for set up.

Upload the demo images folder into your root directory. It will automatically add the demo images and will not replace/delete any files on your server.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries regarding layout set up. I can help you achieve the layout you want.

Best regards,
Peter

Hi. Thanks for the great opencart theme! Is there a way to make the category listing of the products in a grid way as default? Thanks!!!

SokoThemes

Thanks for appreciating my themes :)

Yes, its possible to change to grid style.

Open this file:

catalog\view\theme\selling\template\product\includes\grid_list.tpl

And online 94, you will see the following code:

display('list');

Replace it with:

display('grid');

Then you need to clear the cache + cookies on your browser to see the effect.

Please remember to rate the theme ;)

Hi,

I have updated the theme to stop using VQMOD plugin. No more errors on stores. Please allow me to install the new files to your server, nothing will be lost, its just the theme files. It will take long before Themeforest approves the new files for download.

Apology for the errors you are getting.

I will help you.

Hi again this template its so cool but still having problems.

Could you plz guys help me about it. I install the RSS FEED i try it on a demo just using de OpenCArt Default and its working

But whit this template its just crashing

http://ecuabay.com/index.php?route=feed/rss

When u see this links its shows errors its any way to fix it? I use tge Spanish Lenguage in my site.

Thanks

SokoThemes

HTTP_IMAGE was changed on the latest version of OpenCart. And HTTP_IMAGE comes from the system files and not the theme. Is your RSS plugin compatible with the latest version of OpenCart? Compatibility is very important when it comes OpenCart. You need to make sure that you have installed the right version of a plugin or theme. I remember you had earlier installed Selling Theme on OpenCart 1.5.5.1 while it was clear that its not yet compatible. Please be keen on instructions.

Send me the plugin URL I check its specks and so that I can confirm where the error is.

Hello everyone :)

I have great news, this theme success has been attributed to use of VQMOD plugin. After a lot of considerations, I have deprecated use of vqmod in this theme. No more UNDEFINED ERRORS and lots of bugs.

This theme is now clean and very easy to install and work with. Code has been improved as well, so that you can modify the website with ease.

Plus, its now compatible with OpenCart version 1.5.5x.

Download will be ready by tomorrow as it has to be reviewed by Themeforest staff.

Best regards,
Sokopedian

SokoThemes

Approved. Ready for download now.

Hopefully they review it any minute now! My site looks like hell after the update!

SokoThemes

I have seen your errors, your update from OpenCart 1.5.4 to 1.5.5 generated the SQL error. This has nothing to do with the theme. Please confirm by enabling the native OpenCart theme and you will see.

However, I can try to assist and see where the upgrade went wrong.

Open this file: catalog\view\theme\selling\js\selling-common.js

Remove the code block that starts from line 46 to line 87.

Hi,

First of all great theme. Is there anyway of changing the text colour of the category titles in the top navigation from white to black? Also is there a way to stop the category titles from being all in capitals?

Many thanks

SokoThemes

Yes its possible. Even though I don’t help with customization. I will try to save some time on this.

Open this file:

catalog/view/theme/selling/stylesheet/stylesheet.css

Then find this code:

#menu > ul > li > a {
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: 100;
    color: #FFF;
    line-height: 14px;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    padding: 13px 10px 13px 10px;
    z-index: 6;
    position: relative;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}

Then replace it with:

#menu > ul > li > a {
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: 100;
    color: #000;
    line-height: 14px;
    text-decoration: none;
    display: block;
    padding: 13px 10px 13px 10px;
    z-index: 6;
    position: relative; 
}

That is it.

Cheers :)

Hi, can u advise if this theme is still supported. I could not find it on your website even in the knowledge base?

Cheers,

Liam.

SokoThemes

Hi,

This theme is fully supported. It may not be on our website but its available. Everything is set including installation documentation when you buy the theme.

Peter

Default-user

Thanks for the reply. Just one other question, is it possible for me to change the header to a large image and change the background of the whole theme? I don’t need to know how to do this just want to make sure there are no limitations? Thanks.

SokoThemes

Yes you may.

Header logo may be added in the admin panel but if its bigger, then you will need to modify stylesheet file.

Body background can be changed using background image uploader in Selling Theme Options Panel. However, container background will need to be white to maintain aesthetics of the theme.

Hi, I like your theme, but does it have option to show LEFT and RIGHT column on homepage, and all inside pages? I know the inside page will show left column, but there is no right column, please let me know, thanks!

Yes,

The theme accepts left and right layout on all pages. It supports all OpenCart positions and layouts.

Hi, I have so many main categories, and it became TWO lines, is there anyway I can just display TEXT pages on navigation, and display category on the left side on all pages including homepage? please let me know.

SokoThemes

Hi,

Its not hard to set the categories on every page.

Login to the admin panel of your website and navigate to:

Extensions >> Module >> Category >> Edit

Then add modules having the following characteristics:

1. Layout – select all the layouts each on its line as module.

2. Position – All positions should be set to “Column Left”.

3. Sort Order – Should all be set to “1” so that it can be at the top of all modules on the left columns.

Best regards,

Hi, I tried your method, the categories looks bad on the homepage left side. so I hide it from homepage, now the category menu won’t even display on category page now. Still my main issue is not resolved, The navigation bar can’t have categories, how can I hide that? and display text(inforamation) pages instead. plz help, is there a faster way to contact you?

SokoThemes

Hi,

The navigation only holds the categories. If you want to add text links, then you have to modify the code. In this case you have to edit this file:

catalog/view/theme/selling/template/common/header.tpl

Our theme is a styling for OpenCart CMS software and it functions as per what OpenCart can do so far.

The sidebar categories can only hold short links names. Its its too long then it distorts how it looks like.

Default-user

figured it out. it’s been fixed, but I tried to change color from Light o Dark, but there is no change after I made this setting change. Can you let me know what I did wrong?

SokoThemes

The background color within the container area can only be set to white. Changing it to dark will require a lot of work but if you are good at CSS then it will be fine with you.

Its only the body background color that can be set from the theme options panel. Remove background image from the color options if you have the intention of seeing the BG color in the body of the website.

sorry for so many message, just want to get it fully working. the homepage [featured] module seems not work, I added products, but nothing is displaying there. Only the latest product display proper products. can you let me know what could be wrong?

To change the theme color, go to the Selling Theme Options Panel:

Extensions >> Modules >> Selling Theme Options Panel >> Theme Color >> General Color

For the featured module, ensure you have selected the layout as “Home” in the Featured module settings.

SokoThemes

Hi,

I looked at your website and saw that the code has been modified. I also run another installation on my system just to confirm and found that everything is fine.

In this case the reason is because you modified code and something on theme might have been removed.

Hi, but can you answer my last question? for side banners, when I add more than one, it automatically rotate, how do I list all the banners instead of the rotate animation? thanks again!

SokoThemes

Add each banner on its own i.e.

Small Side Banner 1
Small Side Banner 2
Small Side Banner 3

This is covered in the installation documentation in detail. Read it here.

See these images as well:
Each banner inserted separately
How add the banners
How to set up the Side Banners on Home page using Banner Module

If you add all the banners under one banner name, then they will operate as a slideshow. So you need to add them separately instead of collectively.

Hi,

The slideshow you are using Flex Slider does not support RTL language. I don’t know about Camera Slider either.

Kindly switch to Camera Slider and see if it works.

Best regards

Default-user

i have the same problem with Camera Slider , please it’s so important to make it run OK soon. thanks

SokoThemes

Hi,

I am not sure how to make Flex Slider or Camera Slider work with RTL languages. I recommend that you find the solution from the respective sliders websites. I believe such a problem has been covered already.

Kind regards

Default-user

the problem show in Firefox browser, and it OK in others browser

Default-user

hi the ST Banner don’t show right in the IE browser special in English language

SokoThemes

The reason is because the float for the ST Banners has been changed while transitioning the theme to RTL.

You do not need to modify the original stylesheet file to suit the RTL language. Instead you should have 2 stylesheet files. One for RTL and the other for LTR.

Example:

Original Stylesheet file: stylesheet.css
RTL Stylesheet: rtl.stylesheet.css

Please read more here: http://rtl-this.com/tutorial/rtling-opencart-default-theme

Regards

Default-user

thanks , i have problem in the search box , there is no result show and i still have problem with Camera Slider in Firefox , and i have tow stylesheet as above but i have also “ST Banner don’t show right in the IE browser special in English language ” thanks a lot

SokoThemes

Hi,

Please try to understand. All these errors are as a result of using changing the theme to RTL. This affects how the theme works normally. I suggest you hire a developer to convert this theme to RTL so that you can save yourself some time, because I suppose that a lot of things have been done incorrectly and that’s why you have so many errors on your website.

Kind regards
