Wondering how to install this using Drush and the quickstart project at drupal. I can install a default d6 site and reading part B of your help file, I can get the menus, views, modules configured automatically…but I’m stilling missing the demo content itself which is really useful to start with, so Im just wondering about what commands to use.

@megamattius: – I’m not sure about drush, but still please contact me via contact form available at my user profile page so that I can help you in getting the theme installed.

Very nice theme. I’m having entirely too much fun figuring out how to do what I want. Sort of a stupid question: When i create a view block and place it under postscript top, the block gets placed under the default Latest Blog Roll area. I can’t figure out how to control the placement of Latest Blog Roll (to put it in a smaller block or under postscript top as that doesn’t seem to be modifiable via the Blocks Admin.

A word to others: It takes a ton of extra modules to get this theme to work – by my count 24 extra on top of my standard views, cck, and image. That said, it really works out of the box – I was sort of surprised that I had no problems replacing a current theme with this one. Directions are great except for the fact that I’m not the brightest bulb in the bunch and can’t figure out the Latest Blog thing.

themesmania

@harriska2: – Thanks for purchasing the theme :).

You can place the block position from block list page i.e. http:// /admin/build/block/list

Latest blog roll is written hardcoded on page-front.tpl.php in sites/all/themes/simple folder. In order to remove it you will need to copy over page.tpl.php and page-front.tpl.php from sites/all/themes/simple folder to sites/all/themes/simple_custom folder and just get the latest blog roll text removed from page-front.tpl.php of simple_custom folder.

Let me know for any doubts/confusion or please contact me via contact form available at my user profile page.

Gack. Nevermind, looks like placing block in Content Top does it for me. Duh. I thought I had tried that but apparently not. Using this inexpensive theme has sure made me go outside my comfort zone but man is it flexible out of the box.

@harriska2: – Thank you for your comment :).

“All Drupal default content types are themed.” Question: what about content types created by the admin (custom content types)? Is one SOL when trying to show custom content types in a block? Looks fine in views-block, but when placed as a block in a region all I get is centered data with huge gaps between each list item.

themesmania

@harriska2: – There are few default content types provided by Drupal in install package such as page, story, book, blog, forum table, forum topic etc. All these content types are themed.

But if you create your choice of views according to your need except not provided with the package, you will surely need to write css for them.

Hi tere ,

I just bought the simple theme, and I wold like to know how to get hold of the Drupal 7 version?

Thanks in advance.

themesmania

@caernunes: – Hello, thanks for buying the theme :).

Though Drupal 7 Core is released but still there are lot of modules/themes that need to be ported in Drupal 7 to make it fully functional theme like this one.

Drupal 6 will be here till Drupal 8 is not released and it will take years to develop Drupal 8, so right now “Using Drupal 6 is a Good Choice” and Drupal 7 may be good choice in next couple of months.

Please contact me via contact form available at my user profile page for more.

Many Thanks themesmania

themesmania

@caernunes: – Drupal 7 is ready and available now, please download the latest files.

Hi. I really upset, I tried to install the Simple, but I couldn’t :( I used the installation profile and the result is: http://star-trenings.ru/ I can’t log in to admin part and no pages work exept the main. What should I do now?

themesmania

@Lolie: – Hello Lolie, Did you read the help file provided with the package? Its clearly written, you can login using admin/admin as default username password.

I think you might be very new to Drupal but still you should read the document provided with the theme too.

Please let me know via contact form available at my user profile so that I can help you better, If you face any problem you don’t need to get upset because I am always here to help you out :).

Cheers!

Yes, I installed the site and it is working! At the beginning it was a problem of my provider and at the end – the Drupal itself. But now everything is ok I am very glad! Thank you Lolie

Hi,

I’ve bought and installed the Simple theme. Everything’s fine except that when I browse the homepage of my site, there are requests to an external site: lphbs.com

Seems like this theme has been hacked. Strange…

themesmania

@geraudschmit: – Hello, lphbs.com is not loading and FYI a theme cannot be hacked but a website can, so if you are talking about hacking then please consult to your web host, they may help you out, its not related to theme issue at all :).

Many Thanks themesmania

themesmania

@geraudschmit: – Just an update, The requests to an external site: lphbs.com is made by featured video (blip.tv) added in the right sidebar of the theme, you site is not hacked at all :).

Drupal is very safe :).

Not sure if the comments section is the appropriate place for this, but want to say two things; hope people get to read this:

1) The Simple Theme is very easy to use out of the box, elegant looking, easily customizable, cross-browser friendly, and just all around solid. Very happy with theme. But more important,

2) Themesmania is EXTREMELY helpful. May legitimately be the best customer experience I’ve had—especially on the Web, but including brick and mortar. I had several questions/clarifications about setup, all coming at different times of the day and different days of the week and I could always expect a response within 24 hrs, often much faster. I think Themesmania went above and beyond what was required to help ensure a smooth installation and setup and am very grateful.

@meisenstadt: – Hello, thanks for this wonderful comment :). It’s been pleasure working with you all the time, I feel great helping out my clients :).

I’m wondering how I get news items to appear under various categories (such as “Business”) on the front page. I see a nodequeue for “front categories” but adding a story there only appears in the “Latest Blog Roll.”

Anyone know the secret?

themesmania

@wpmatrix: – Update, issue resolved in the latest comment.

The category misunderstanding was quickly fixed by themesmania. For others who might import WordPress posts, be sure to manually add the images via the Drupal backend. Otherwise, the posts do not appear in the front page category section.

First of all, I’m so happy that I bought this theme for my website. Looks so great !

I have a small question :)

I’d like to change the size of the front featured block.

I looked at the imagecache preset, changed it, but the block is still 100% width. I changed the width of the block, still 100% width

Do I have to modify the template file ddblock-cycle-block-content-[TEMPLATENAME].tpl.php ?

Where should I look ?

Thanks for your help (sorry for my bad english ;) )

themesmania

@Veji: – Hello Veji, thanks for your comment and for purchasing the theme :), I am glad that it’s working out well for you :).

For making the featured block smaller in width edit the featured block and change the block width from there, this should help you out or let me know the url of your website along with the Drupal admin login details, I will help you out.

You don’t need to edit ddblock-cycle-block-content-[TEMPLATENAME].tpl.php.

Dear Themesmania,

I purchased your theme and installed it easily, however looking at the army of modules which power it, i am little scared, wont these modules etc cause scalability issues ( eg when you are under digg effect) that is being visited by a lot of users.

our website already uses a hell lot of modules, so adding these would mean a upto 100 modules :(

themesmania

@biotecnika: – Thanks for purchasing the theme :).

In Drupal we use modules to extend the functionality of a website and I don’t think you need to get scared of using lot of modules as long as you haven’t hacked them.

Dear Themesmania,

i would like to bring this to your notice that some files are getting downloaded by the css which is not needed for example all the background files eg: wood-light-vertical.jpg and many more, these images are not needed but still gets downloaded, please help

themesmania

@biotecnika: – Hello, for your information a browser loads only required images files which are being used on that page, it doesn’t loads all the images written in the css file at all.

There are some confusing sites available on the internet and you should not get confused with it.

Hi, is this theme already available for D7? How can I get at least an initial version of it for D7 to try it on, as fusion and skinr are already available as dev releases. Thanks.

themesmania

@evave: – Hello, thanks for purchasing the theme.

FYI this is a Drupal 6 theme and currently there is no Drupal 7 version of it available. Fusion and skinr’s only dev version is available and which is not good for production website as you may get of lot of errors or may get site down due to errors. Therefore just waiting for stable version so that you don’t face any problem in future.

This is a great theme! Are there any elements that do not work correctly in IE6 ? Will the menu still work correctly with IE6 ?

themesmania

@bluewebsites: – Hello, FYI this site is not tested in IE6 , there may be some issues. It was not done intentionally as lot of companies including google has dropped the support for IE6 .
