It is a bit buggy (in my setup at least).

The crosses next to menu items and blocks in their respective lists for changing the order “on the fly” do not appear.

Also, if not enough content is present in any one page the bottom .jpg does not appear or appears partly.

Other than that my customer is raving about his concepts so far so apart from a couple of things this theme is very good.

settysantu

Yes you are right, i forgot to mention don’t use this theme for admin, plz do set this theme for front-end only, yes if content is not enough bottom part won’t appear’s it can be fixed using min-height, if u can’t fix email me i will help you.

BTW i replied to your email, all 2 other columns can be done by same way promote to front page.

Thank you for this wonderful theme.

I would like to note about something important which is that there is ambiguity for me to understand the Documentation that came with the template. the inquiries are as follows:

How to setup slider?

I have followed all the steps but the pictures did not appear in the block, but when I tried the default block “Powered by Drupal” successfully work with slider. Is the reason that the images do not appear in the block with the knowledge that I put the option of full HTML .

How To Add Menu Item and Sub Menu ? you’ve mentioned in the Help, “Adding menu is simple you need to add this code” so, where can I put the code??

I stopped at this point may I need some clarification in the rest of this things if needed, note that I am new in Durpal.

Regards,

settysantu

Hi, ok don’t worry lets make it work, will try to give clarity

How to setup slider??

To setup slider you need to be done from blocks, lets see how we can do it. Firstly go to Administer -> Sitie Building -> Blocks, now click on “Add Block” give approprate title, description now in “Block Body” give your image path, and assign it to Header Region and save it. You can give all image paths in single blog or can create seprate block for each image and assign to Header regison.

Note :

1. You need to enable FULL HTML in Input format. 2. Image path in the sense <img src="youri-image-path.jpg" alt="image name" />

How to add sub menus

For sub menus no need to add any code, it was my mistake am extremely sorry you need to create sub menu’s as just create for menus, like simple create content/blog post/story and in menu item option select parent menu.

If you are still not able to make it, drop me email from my profile page i will help you.

Hi Santosh,

I think an amendment to the theme documentation is necesary because some of the assumptions might conflict with existing site settings, e.g. if someone was already doing development before applying the theme, like myself.

If a URL is specified under Site Information -> Default front page, no other page will appear in the front page apart from the one specified (irrespective of the setting “Promoted to front page” of other pages).

This setting (Default front page) has to be changed to “node” and other pages be “Promoted to front page” for them to appear.

Also I haven’t been able to find an easy way of changing the order of how columns appear in the Front Page apart from promoting content in the correct order which is a bit of a pain. If there is a way and I have missed it please advise.

Finally, although I have added a different admin theme the blocks list page still reverts to the Smart Business theme.

This might be a bug with my setup but I have tried flushing cashes, restarting the DB and Web Server with no luck, if someone else is experiencing this please post so as to confirm it is not just me :-).

Despite the above, now that I have it working as expected, this theme has brought smiles to my client, this can only mean it is good.

Hi, Ok i read ur post but one thing if u hate promote to front page then why don’t u delete page-front.tpl.php then it displays content default content that added, this theme is specially designed with added features am not trying to make drupal default themes.

Yes i agree on documentation, i will make it more easy and will try to put some video’s too that help newbies like you.

Thanks for valuable input :)

Hi Santosh,

thanks for the quick reply but you are missing the point, it is not about producing default themes, it is about not making assumptions about configurations.

Your theme assumes default settings (the site default page being “node”) and this has to be explained in the documentation.

I would also think that the solution to column sorting is not to delete the nice frontpage completely but editing to one’s needs, my point is about available out of the box functionality as it is not everyone’s cup of tea editing template files.

Regards

settysantu

Ok, but its not editing files you just need to check Promote to Front Page check box thats it.

Hey T_V

I’m not sure if I understand your problem but could you get around the issue by using a views display on the front page to order the content, as opposed to using any built in theme features?

Drop me an email if I can help in any way.

Cheers

Hi Setty,

Can you please explain why this theme shouldn’t be used as an admin theme?

Also would that be the reason behind the lack of ability to edit things like Menu characteristics, front page content etc.

Additional information would be welcome.

settysantu

Hi, The only reason i said not use as admin theme bcoz drag and drop feature not working, beside that every thing is working fine.

I never had any problem with adding content and menu, send me link will look into it.

Hi Thjorhart,

some of us don’t like using Viiews on every site as it makes installations “heavy”. I tend to have my sites lean and mean as much as possible. Using Views in this case is overkill as it would only be used for that issue (it is a small site).

I just created 3 more pages and promote these accordingly instead of using existing content.

Do you have the problem of the blocks list not picking up the admin theme?

OK – I can’t get the slider to work… I have followed your setup and I used Drupal a lot. Can you please email me a screenshot of the block setup? or something?

Thanks -Mike

Please disregard my comments above…. it works great!

What is the ideal size for the pictures in the slider? I don’t seem to be able to find that info anywhere. Thanks.

settysantu

960×432 is the size, it easy to find right click on image properties.

Hi, I’d like the size of my homepage and slider images to be the same size as what they are on the Live Preview here. What exactly do I need to do in order to set it up like that?

Thanks

settysantu

You need to use same size images thats it.

Also can’t get past the theme reverting away from an admin theme to this one in admin/build/block. So, I cannot rearrange blocks easily.

settysantu

Use default theme for admin only, if not contact me via my profile page will help u.

<a hef="/test"><img src="xx" /></a>

but when i go to the homepage, the link isnt active when i mouse over the image. please help ;) i need links from the rotator

settysantu

Ya u can link it, to enable link open custom.js go to line 35 u will see links : false, change it to links : true, thats it. Don’t forget to link images.

nice! you rock !!

I used the theme but in admin the theme is creating the problem, can yo let me know how to use the default admin theme as I am new in Drupal. once I login it show the normal admin theme but once i click recent posts I get your theme without any logout button and it is creating problem.

settysantu

So without buying theme you are using it and getting errors, oh can u tell me from where u got the theme??

its obvious that I have bought the theme and then only I am asking about the issues.

settysantu

It doesn’t showing that ur purchased item.

it has been purchased by Isaac Braun who is my client, so please send me your replies ASAP

another issue is validation, the user login panel validation is coming at the main panel at the left where as it should come in that panel itself.

settysantu

As i said support only for buyers, ask question from purchased account.

settysantu

See theme won’t be responsible for login validations, you need to put blocks in correct place so that u will be able to access them. Go to blocks and re-arrange them.

You said you are new to Drupal, so first go through some tutorials and learn some basics.
