I did a test for multistore so I could split the appearance of the season website. Everything works fine except I accidentally imported one of the default pages and my home page was replaced. After spending an hr putting it all back together again, I realized that although the demo1 was the base layout of my site, the main slideshow is now all the way across! No more 3 little banners on the right. How is this possible? The code in my content section for the homepage does not have anything referencing the home page slider static block. So I have to assume that the main slider for any of the 6 demos, all exist in the template files. Am I missing something? :/

Hello,

If you imported settings, then your previous slideshow settings were overwritten so you need to configure the slideshow again.

The main slideshow on home page can be configured directly in the admin panel and it is not related to what content you have on your home page:
System > Configuration > Slideshow

You can find all slideshow options described in the user guide:
11. Slideshow

Kind regards

Yea, that’s what I read in the Ultimo guide. I think I found my problem. Not having the banners on the right…there’s no content in Main Slideshow on Home Page > Banners. In the hint box, it says nothing will show if the box is empty. (So where did that text go? When I first installed, there were 3 example photos there) But why would that cause the main slideshow to expand the width of the container and not stay as it’s design was? More so, does this mean if I remove the default blocks (block_slide_wide1,block_slide_wide2), that the entire slideshow on the homepage will be removed as well? I was looking for an on/off switch. Or enable/disable, rather.

Actually, I just tested it and answered my own questions :)

Hello,

You would have to buy another licenses the same way as previously (clicking the “Purchase” button at the to of this page) and after that the new licenses will appear in your ThemeForest account (in the download section).

Just installed 1.9.3 today all went well but for one small thing,

My About Us button on my menu bar was white text on purple background w/a lighter purple hover color. After upgrade text was black an no hover color change. Managed to correct text color by fiddling with Basic Colors, but Button Hover Background Color is not working.

had to undo that correction of text color by fiddling with Basic Colors, it messed up the accordion side category block so that I could not see the text (white on white). So then back to square one, About Us on the menu is not displaying the same characteristics as the Home, Categories or the block_header_nav_dropdown

Never mind, I see your getting rid of those CMS blocks, I just disable block_nav_links (read the User Guide) and created a new category with a custom url to my About Us CMS page..thanks - I LOVE the new version 1.9.3. Good Job!

infortis

Thank you. Next one will be even better. :)

It’s OK to use block_nav_links if it suits your needs, we will not remove it yet as it is useful in some cases. Your links from that block looked different probably because in version 1.9 a new class nav-item was added to the menu items. You will need to update the content of your block and add that class in order to display links properly.

Hi,

I update my store to 1.9.01 and Ultimo Version 1.9.0 The main menu is showing, but the drop-down menus is missing. (the settings looks correct).

Non of the sliders is working, it only show the product name and price in a strange list. Have reindex and flush the cache a lot of times, but that did not help.

Thanks.

infortis

Hello,

1. You will need to re-configure your menu to set the same look as you had in previous version. Please check the Update Guide PDF, all details are provided there.

2. Problem with sliders indicates incorrect installation (e.g. missing files) or that something overrides the theme in your Magento :
- third-party extensions,
- some custom modifications,
- custom sub-theme,
- some elements that left from previous theme

Please refer to the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the user guide, check the list of possible sources of problems in chapter 14.1.1.

Kind regards

I’ve read the 13.3 Custom links in the menu and want to create a link to a static page…this is what I have done. 1. Created a static page : about-us with url key about-us 2. Created a categorie: about-us with url key about-us Active – Yes Include in Navigation Menu – Yes In tab Menu: Custom URL – about-us

After reindexing, the menu About us will be redirected to the CAtegory page, instead of the static page

How can the link redirected to the static page

infortis

Hello,

Looks like the category URL overrides CMS page URL. Maybe it would help if you create your page after you create a category. Or change the URL Key of that category to something else (e.g. “abc”).

Here you can read more about Magento URL rewrites:

rename of the url key works (example about-us-old), only little thing is both links will create in the sitemap…maybe to permanent redirect in .htaccess.

to make category first and later cms makes no difference

link will not get an active class if selected

infortis

Yes, it will be in sitemap, this is the drawback of this method.

Class “active” Magento adds only to categories.

I’m having a issue with the new menu – we want our menu to have some sub categories and mega drop downs for sub category’s. Like you in your demos.. I can tell our sub-sub categories have sub categories because they have .caret > next to them.

I’m getting a small white box the code / li and a hrefs are there but are hidden see screen shot -

http://oi62.tinypic.com/11v1vew.jpg

menu depth settings in magento is 5…

When I change the Drop-down Width to 600px it will make the blank box 600 pixels when I inspect it I can see the LI links but they do not display.. our url is worldtraveler.com brands> rimowa> you can see it for yourself!

Still nothing shows up just a blank box – css is nav .nav-panel-inner

infortis

Hello, You already posted this, please wait for our reply below your previous post.

Kind regards

infortis

You have some custom CSS that breaks the menu (we replied below your previous comment).

Default-user

Ah ! Thanks – one more quick question – is it possible to adjust the length/height of the drop-down menue besides the width? when doing simple – no drop down it increases the length even more.

Default-user

Can you tell me the settings you guys have for the Electronic category and the menu tab? I’m trying to replicate it and I can not…Submenu type is mega drop-down..drop-down width 1000px..(it starts from the right how is yours starting from the left?) drop-down content proportions left block:4 subcategorie: 8 right block: 0 number of columns with subcategories is 3. Ours seems more smushed..

Hello! In the demos of the Ultimo theme all of the thumbnails are a universal size (which looks great). However, in our site, the product photos we’re using are all different sizes.

Is there a way to ensure that the thumbnails are all the same size throughout the site even though the uploaded (full size) photos from which the thumbnails are made are all different sizes?

(This applies mostly to the thumbnails of products in the grid/list views—not necessarily the thumbnails within the “slider” on an individual product page.)

infortis

Hello,

For category pages you can disable Keep Image Aspect Ratio option in:

System > Configuration > Theme Settings > Category View

You can also disable Keep Image Aspect Ratio option for product image gallery on product page in:

System > Configuration > Zoom > Image Size

Feature request: It would be awesome if the option to use radio buttons, or better yet CSS buttons to make selections for Configurable products on product pages. In my experience buttons are much more user friendly and convert better than drop downs in most situations.

On grid view we use the equal-height, but on hover this automatically remove because a file change the code height to “auto”.

In witch file can I remove this, so that on hover the height will also be equal? (the same height as normal view)

Thanks

Hello!

I’m curious how I can get the homepage on my store to look like the homepage of demo one – specifically, I’d like to recreate the 3 vertical blocks on the right hand side of the slider. I imported all CMS blocks from demo 1, however, I am unable to find a block that represent this area of content.

Can you advise me on how to get these 3 vertical blocks next to the slider up and filled with some pretty images?

Thanks!

Is there a PDF or webpage the breaks down all the div classes? I’ve seen so many different ones mentioned within all the static blocks. However, there may be some classes we would prefer to use in other blocks. I hope there is a direct resource because it will be a headache to scroll the the style sheet and decypher all the options.
