Hello,

I’ve really loved this theme. Its the first drupal theme that I’m actually considering buying.

I am currently debating if I should use drupal 6 or 7 for the setup of my new site.

The question I had was- if I buy this theme for drupal 6 will I have to buy it again when drupal 7 version of the theme comes out or will you provide it as a free upgrade to your existing drupal 6 customers?

Also, any idea by what date would you be coming out with the drupal 7 version of this theme?

Look forward to using your theme on my production site very soon! :)

themesmania

@ronzensci: – Thanks for loving the theme :). There is no ETA for Drupal 7 theme yet but yes Drupal 7 version will be provided free of cost (when its released) if you have purchased its Drupal 6 version.

Many Thanks themesmania

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

sorry again, got some doubt for some function.

for business and sport section, that is a block with html code or that is a module automatic add in the related taxanomy term inside it?

example i create 5 article for business as taxonomy term 2, would it automatic appear on front page in business section ?

or that is a block with html and need to add title and some article inside by ourself ? like

<h1>tiltle</h1> <p>information</p> <a href="#">read more</a> <h1>tiltle</h1> <p>information</p> <a href="#">read more</a>
themesmania

@ECMY: – Hello, Its using module and these blocks are created using views and nodeque module, once you create any node you will need to add it to the nodeque and then it should start appearing theme.

Hi, love the template although I’m struggling with drupal as a novice.

Top Menu (Secondary Menu I can edit but doesn’t appear)

Date

Social Icons

Search Box

Lightbox (Slidehow)

Categories that appear on the homepage

The pole isn’t the same

Featured Video

Advert above Featured Video

Partners

Footer

I have a graphical background rather than a grey one

Hello Themesmania,

great theme, easy to use!

Would it be possible to desactivate the right sidebar while editing articles in the backend? Due to the ‚Rectangle Ad‘-Block’, Recent post, Featured Video the editing section is not big enough. The Whysiwyg editor doesn’t have enough place to show all symbols.

Many thanks Andreas

themesmania

@andreasnoll: – Hello Andrea, thanks for purchasing the theme :).

There can be two thing, first is you can choose default garland theme for writing the the content means as administration theme and another is disabling the blocks coming the right sidebar via block visibility page.

Let me know.

Many Thanks themesmania

Works perfectly. Many thanks. Andreas

I have edited

function simple_preprocess_ddblock_cycle_block_content(&$vars) of simple/template.php

and added the changes in simple_custom/template.php with string:

function simple_custom_preprocess_ddblock_cycle_block_content(&$vars)

because I don’t want to change the core simple theme so that when updates comes up I don’t have to change the whole thing again.

But the changes that I made in simple_custom/template.php is not showing (working).

However, when I save the changes in simple/template.php file then it is showing (working).

How can I get template.php, tpl files and css files inside simple_custom folder working as I don’t see any change in website even after editing the custom files as explained above.

In theme section I have choosen “simple_custom” as the theme.

Please advice.

themesmania

@apeee: – Hello, Thanks for purchasing the theme :).

In Drupal 6 sub themes, any .tpl.php files from the parent theme will be inherited. However, to add template files with more specificity, you must also copy over the more general template file from the parent theme manually. For instance, to add a node-blog.tpl.php template in a sub-theme, you must also copy over node.tpl.php from the parent theme. This bug has been fixed in Drupal 7 but will not be fixed in Drupal 6 according to Drupal.org.

Let me know.

Thanks @themesmania.

As you said; In Drupal 6 sub themes, any .tpl.php files from the parent theme will be inherited.

But, it is not working.

I copied the node.tpl.php file from simple folder to simple_custom folder and edited there but it is not working.

However, any edits made in node.tpl.php file inside simple folder, works.

It was supposed to work just by coping the node.tpl.php file to simple_custom folder, but don’t know why it is not working.

This is a very nice theme design. Will be implementing it with a newspaper website.

Quick question though:

I’ve assigned the “before” & “after” login block to the Right_navigation region. I am successfully getting a “Login” & “register” link when I’m logged out. However, when I’m logged in as a test user, there is no “logout” link.

I have to manually log out by going to mysite.com/logout

Any thoughts on how to resolve this issue?

Thanks, Zack

themesmania

@Maxwellink: – Hello Zack, thanks for purchasing the theme :).

You can see the menu items assigned to the menu from the menu page i.e. http:// /admin/build/menu

Let me know.

Actually, I figured it out. Posting the solution for anyone else who might run into the same problem:

1. Goto Site Building => Blocks 2. Scroll down to the “After Login” block 3. Click “configure” 4. Scroll down to “Page specific visibility settings” (should be the last dropdown item) 5 Change display option to “Show on every page except the listed pages.”

The block is disabled by default.

I’m thoroughly enjoying learning Drupal with your great theme. Thanks. These may be noob questions …

  1. How can I remove or change the wording “Latest Blog Roll” on the front page?
  2. Where do I set the length of teaser copy for stories promoted to the front page. I tried Post Settings but that is not working properly – with Post Settings set to 600 the actual teasers on the front page have under 80 characters.
  3. In the Create Stories form: Where do I change the wording of the instruction that “Image size should be 938×240 pixels or larger.”?
themesmania

@davyrhys: – Hello, thanks for purchasing the theme :).

Please find the replies to your questions below: -

1) “Latest blog roll is “Its hardcoded (written) in page-front.tpl.php you can copy over the page-front.tpl.php from sites/all/themes/simple fodlder to sites/all/themes/simple_custom folder and can remove it from there.

2) Node promoted to front are managed via post settings, are you sure you are talking about node promoted to front or you are talking about some content generated via views? just let me know.

3) You can change the wordings by configuring the image field from this url on your website http:// /admin/content/node-type/story/fields

Thanks Themesmania – will follow your advice.

Another point for other buyers who want to add CiviCRM: PNG Fix breaks the contact tabs. I’ve deactivated PNG Fix and replaced it with PNG Behave. Also added SimplyCivi as the CiviCRM theme and used the CiviCRM theme module to make it all work.

Everything seems to be working fine … will let you know if I encounter any problems.

1) if i want to change the slider, is that change inside the block ?? (inside configure section)

2) can i post a sport article and that sport article will showing up on the slideshow itself ?

3) the 4 section business, sport, technology and lifestyle is using views modules?if i add new article for sport, would it showing up in the front page automatically ?

4) i see the imagecache thumbnail is just categories in 100X100, can it categories in each date folder ? example today is 14 sept, the thumbnail will store in “sept 2011” folder

5) for business section, there is a thumbnail will title and some content. can i put 4 another title below it ?

6) for business thumbnail size 100X100, if my article image is 600X200, can it resize automatic to 100X30 ?

please kindly answer the question above. thank you.

themesmania

@ecmy: – Hello, please find the replies to your questions below: -

1) What kind of change do you want to do? Do you mean changing slides if thats so yes you can do it by editing the content after loging into your Drupal site.

2) You will need to check for option to feature this item in the featured slide show and if you do so, it will start appearing in the featured slider.

3) Yes it will be showing on the front page automatically.

4) You can rename the imagecache but you will need to change it at all the place where this imagecache name is specified.

5) You will need to do some editing in views and may need to do some css for this.

6) Yes, you can use imagecache module provided in the theme and can edit the view and can change your image cache item.

I have answered to all your questions :).

Let me know.
