Hi,

I have a couple of questions.

1) Is there a free trial to check compatibility? 2) Is this theme compatible with Payhub? 3) Can I add iframes to the pages? That is how the shopping cart system for Payhub works.

Thank you, Rachel

Hello,

This theme can work with any extension which was correctly integrated with Magento.

Unfortunately we’re unable to test third-party extensions as there are thousands of extensions so I’m unable to advise. Every extension is different, it is impossible for theme author to make the theme compatible with all existing extensions out of the box.

Hello. First of all. GREAT theme, I absolutely love it!

Is it possible to put dynamic values in the Custom tabs? Like. If I want to make a new attribute on products and put in dynamically into one Custom Tab.. ? (I hope you understand)

Thank you very much.

Regards, Remi

Hello,

These blocks are only for static content (they are global, not product-specific). Static blocks in Magento are global, can’t be assigned to a specific page or product.

There are two other tabs on product page for product-specific info: 1 – Description: which displays product long description (videos can be embeded here) 2 – Additional Info: which displays product attributes. You can enable/disable each attribute’s visibility on product page with “Visible on Product View Page on Front-end” field in Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes > [attribute] > Frontend Properties.

hello

Question. Is the layout for configurable product page on the front-end not styled at all because on my install the layout is completely different to the simple products pages? If this is the case, is there an easy way to make them similar?

Thanks

infortis

Hello,

As you can see in the demo there are many configurable products and all are styled and layout is correct, e.g.: http://ultimo.infortis-themes.com/demo/default/dress4.html

If it works different in your store, then you must have some custom modifications or extensions.

Hello,

Magento adds spaces if you have new lines in the description. Remove spaces between HTML tags.

Does the brand slider have to have more than 2 brands to start the slideshow? Mine is working on a product page, but not on homepage yet. http://hespvc1.nextmp.net

Hi,

When you take a look into the source of your website, there is no logo in the brand slider. Please reindex your Magento and flush all caches.

Hi,

Yes I noticed in your demo version the page source has the logos. I flushed the image cache and reindexed.

Is this the correct code? {{block type=”brands/brands” block_name=”Product Brands” template=”infortis/brands/brand_slider.phtml”}}

Thanks,

infortis

If you now copy the code displayed in your post and paste it to your Magento it will not work because standard quotation marks were replaced with some different character (which only looks similar).

Correct code can be found in the user guide and in the sample home pages which can be imported.

Oh yes, this is the actual code. http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2152233/Screen%20Shot%202013-07-09%20at%209.21.36%20AM.png

The logos show on the product pages, do they draw the images from the same folder as the brand slider?

Thanks,

Rs

infortis

Yes, logos are in one folder.

Are you sure you haven’t edited theme files? Please reupload all the files again (and overwrite) and remove all custom changes, subthemes etc. Then reindex again and flush all caches. Also, review your sliders code again, for example: you don’t use parameter “is_responsive” which is required to make sliders responsive.

Hello Infortis,

I would like to know if there is any risk or preconditions to take before setting these actions to speed of Magento recompensed by you in a previous post.

1.Turn logging off 2. Turn Compilation On 3. Combine JS and CSS files 4. Enable Magento Flat Catalog 5. Set Anchor Category to NO

infortis

Hello,

These are standard Magento features so you can use them without any problem, but for details please ask on Magento forum or other Magento site, for example: Flat Catalog should only be enabled if you your catalog is large, for small catalogs it can even slow down your site.

Thanks for your template, really great!

I’m searching for several days a solution for this easy case.

I’d like to use the predefined CMS page about-magento-demo-store and change the layout to “2 columns with left bar” and add for this page a static block “test” on the left bar.

To do so, I’ve added in Layout Update XML for the page:

<reference name=”left”> <block type=”cms/block”> <action method=”setBlockId”><block_id>test</block_id></action> </block> </reference>

But this does not work. Please help! Thanks

Hello,

Did you flush the cache after that? In this theme you can add blocks the same way as in any other Magento theme. I’m sorry but custom modifications are beyond the scope of our support. Please refer to Magento websites for more details about your issue:

Just a note to folks who are getting this error:

Message: Template file is empty or doesn’t exist: infortis/ultimo/css/design.phtml

If you have custom.css enabled in the theme settings then the custom.css file must exist in your css folder else you get the above error.

That was the issue in my case.

infortis

Hello,

This is not related to custom.css, the message means that not all the theme files were uploaded.

Hi,

Is there a way to take out the Product Secondary Column Bottom” on a specific product type? http://hespvc1.nextmp.net/residential-9/off-grid/panels/hanwha-hsc-250-60p.html

90% of our products are relevant, but 10% of our products are Projects, not products so we’d be using more as a portfolio of construction jobs. Any recommendations on how to display a portfolio? We love your product pages, we just want one to be slightly different than the herd.

Dear sir madame,

We love your theme, but have one question about the left menu. We have a structure with 5 main categories and about 1000 subcategories in 5 levels. Now all the categories are in the broncode and that is terrible for Seo. In our case and in standard Magento you can only show the subcategories of the category where you are in. Is this possible?

Hope to hear from you soon.

infortis

Hello,

We want to add such feature (only show the subcategories of the category where you are) in the next updates.

Dear Infortis,

Thanks for your reply, when can we expact such an update?

What would be even better would be if you would see all the main categories in the left menu, but that the code would take only the subcategories of the active main category. So the sub categories of all the other main categories would be off and only get active when you click at the main category. The best thing would be to have both options.

Let me know

Kind regards,

Coen

Hi
There is a way to put on menu bar the option “New” and “Sale”?

I’d like to showns on those categories pages the products there are new and there are in sale.

Thanks.

infortis

Hello,

You can show custom links (to any page) in the menu. Please see the description of the static block “block_nav_links” in the user guide.

Regards

Default-user

But how can I show “New” and “Sale” items in grid way on a page?

infortis

On a CMS page you can show products in sliders. Grid view is designed for category pages.

Labels “New” and “Sale” are added automatically for appropriate products (no matter if the product is displayed in the grid or in the slider).

To display on the home page a product grid similar to the grid which you can see in category view, you can add this block code to your home page content:

{{block type='catalog/product_list' category_id='3' template='catalog/product/list.phtml'}}

It can also be done via XML files, in case you prefer this way: http://stackoverflow.com/a/9206531/1647291

Regards

Default-user

Yes, but I want to show only the “New” products on a page in menu, the same with products in “Sale”. There is a way?

infortis

Unfortunately there is no such feature in Magento.

Ok, thank you :-D

Hi,

how can I change the size of the New and Sale labels? When I use a longer word the button looks like an oval.

Cheers

infortis

Hi,

When you need to make some changes in the theme design (whatever that is: font, colors, anything), you can enable additional CSS file custom.css, in which you can override the default styles of the theme. All the CSS styles placed in this file will not be lost after upgrading the theme in the future. For more details please refer to “6.6.1 Override default CSS styles” in the user guide.

In case you want to customize existing CSS, then the best way to find out which part of CSS you need to override or extend is to use Firebug (add-on for Firefox: www.getfirebug.com) or other similar tool.

The update drive me crazy, everytime, once add new language package, the css was messed up, and from one language to another the home page width changed, and the color changed. I tried for 1.4 version, no such problem. But 1.4 version does not has so many extra admin configuration. Can you guy test on Language package like any of those: Chinese, Japanese, Spanish to see how it works? I am not quite sure if next version will quickly fix this issue.

infortis

Hi,

Language packages are not related to the theme at all so you can install any language and it will not affect the theme.

If you meant that you added another store view in your Magento and the theme looks strange in that store view, then it means that you didn’t refresh the CSS (“Refresh CSS…” buttons) and didn’t flush the cache after adding that store view.

In version 1.5.x all the settings are now refreshed automatically after you click Save Config button and buttons “Refresh CSS…” were removed.

After upgrading to version 1.5.0 you need to refresh the CSS one last time to get rid of old settings. Go to System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and click Save Config button. Then, do exactly the same in section System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Layout.

Regards

Default-user
xianlins Purchased

So, do you mean I need to install 1.5.0 first then upgrade to 1.5.1? I was install 1.5.1 directly.

infortis

No, you can upgrade directly to 1.5.1.
But you need to do all the things (which you would need to do if you upgraded to 1.5.0) described in Update Guide, chapter 2. Important changes -> 2.1 Ultimo version 1.5.0.

(such as: refresh the CSS one last time to get rid of old settings etc.)

I installed new Magento and install new store view either before or after installing the theme, got the same results, I think I exactly followed the steps described, but the results are: once switch from English to other View, the CSS changed, like colors, homepage width, etc. once changed back to default view, it looks okay. In the 1.4.x, once I refresh CSS, this will not happen, but the new version has a lot new features which I like, the only thing is CSS mess up. Did your team try on new store view once developing the new version?

infortis

You say you have a problem, but after you refresh CSS (which is correct thing to do) all works fine. So why you don’t just refresh the CSS? I’m sorry but from your description I don’t understand the issue. Please provide a link to your site (you can send us via email).

In the “Update Guide” you can read how you can do this, see chapter “Simplified backend”. Did you check it at all?

The most important change in version 1.5.0: after you finish upgrading the theme in your store, there is one additional thing which you need to do. In the previous versions you had to click “Refresh CSS…” button every time the configuration was saved in System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Layout sections. It is not needed anymore and the button was removed. All the settings are now refreshed automatically after you click Save Config button.

After upgrading to version 1.5.0 you need to refresh the CSS one last time to get rid of old settings. Go to System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and click Save Config button. Then, do exactly the same in section System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Layout. Then flush all caches.

If it doesn’t refresh the CSS and your new store view looks messy, it means that you are missing some files and installation/upgrade was incorrect. In that case refer to the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the user guide for details, check the list of possible sources of the problem in chapter 14.1.1.

Kind regards

Default-user
xianlins Purchased

This is what I did: 1. Install the 1.5.1 on my website sunymart.com 2. Create Chinese storeview and activate through config 3. in the frontend, once switched to Chinese, you can notice, the colors changes, also the blocks wrapped to ”+”, once I switch back to English Storeview, everything work exactly like your demo? I am not quite sure what is wrong.

infortis

If all was installed correctly, and you clicked “Save Config” buttons in System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and in System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Layout, then you would have these three files (for your chinese store view):

But they don’t exist in your installation (please check the source of your website: CTRL+U).

This may be file permissions issue – your Magento doesn’t have access to that folder or to those files because of incorrect file permissions on your server. You need to set correct file permissions for all theme files (the same permissions as for other Magento files).

Default-user
xianlins Purchased

I checked, every folder/subfolder under http://sunymart.com/skin was set 755, those are magento default, what kind of permission need to be changed and for which subfolder?

infortis

But do these 3 files exist at all in your skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config folder?

They should be generated by the theme automatically after you save your settings in the admin panel (in Theme Layout and Theme Design sections).

If those CSS files don’t exist then it means that you didn’t install properly and some theme files are missing. In that case reupload all the theme files again to your server (zip files before uploading), overwrite the old files and make sure all the uploaded files and folders have the same permissions as Magento’s files and folders.

Regards

Default-user
xianlins Purchased

No, none of those files exists, I try several times to reinstall magento and reload the file locally and follow the guideline strictly, it just does not work.

infortis

One last thing, check if you have these 3 files: design.phtml, grid.phtml, layout.phtml in app\design\frontend\base\default\template\infortis\ultimo\css\

They are generating 3 css files which I mentioned in my previous comment.

To upgrade, all you need to do is to remove the old files and replace them with new files. Theme was tested 100 times so it is something on your end, most likely missing or broken files.

Default-user
xianlins Purchased

Yes, those files are there.

infortis

Then it indicates incorrect installation. Please contact our support via email (contact form is on profile page) and provide access details to your admin.

Please let me know which step is wrong, did you guy test this from brand new magento installation? I really do not understand what the problem comes from. I hope the new version will test on this. Website: Sunymart.com

infortis

Contact form is on our profile page. Just click on our login.

Theme was extensively tested and all work out of the box. But it requires correctly installed Magento (with correct file permissions etc. and it all depends on server so don’t ask us about what permissions are correct).

Dynamically created files containing design settings from theme admin are stored here:
skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/

Your english store loads this file correctly:
skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/design_default.css

Now your chinese store loads should load this file (from the same folder):
skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/design_ce.css

But instead, it searches for that file in other folder:
skin/frontend/base/default/css/_config/design_cn.css

which means that the original file: skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/design_cn.css

1. Is inaccessible for your Magento because of incorrect file permissions for that file or folder on your server. (Your Magento has to be able to write to this folder and files in this folder have to be accessible).

2. Or that file doesn’t exist at all, which means that theme files on your server are broken/modified or some files are simply missing. Otherwise that file would be created after you click “Save Config” in System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and all would work fine.

If you send files one by one via FTP, it’s easy to break something. Instead, you should zip your files, send the ZIP package to your server and unzip it there.

To summarize, issue is specific to your installation, it’s not a bug. Magento is a complex app and many things can go wrong. Please contact with someone who offers Magento installation services.

Can I use the theme as a catalog only? How can I hide the price in all pages, and can I hide the “add to cart”, “ad to comparison”, “quantity” and “availability” in the product page? I use your awesome theme as a catalog only :-) Thanks

infortis

Hello,

Please kindly don’t duplicate your questions in emails if you already post a comment. This is considered as spam.

Unfortunately there is no such option in Magento, you would need to modify the theme to remove those elements (although you can disable Checkout functionality via Magento admin).

When you want to customize a theme in Magento, you can display the names of template file of each block in the front-end by enabling the Template Path Hints. This way you can easily check which template files you need to edit to customize specific sections of Magento. Please see this short video tutorial for more details: http://vimeo.com/1067069

our website is nyponytail.com

infortis

Hello,

You’ve mixed some parameters from both blocks but they should not be mixed. For example, “is_random” is only for Featured Products. Don’t use “breakpoints”, it is an experimental parameter and it may change a lot in the next version, we forgot to remove it. Also, note the difference between parameters defining number of products:

Featured Products: product_count=”10”

New Products: products_count=”10” (this is Magento’s default parameter)

This is example of the correct New Products block code, more can be found in the user guide and in the sample pages available for import:

{{block type="catalog/product_new" products_count="10" show_items="5" is_responsive="1" block_name="New Products Title" hide_button="1" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

Disable WYSIWYG before you paste the code to the page.

Hi

Fantastic theme! Will be buying plenty more :)

The only thing we are struggling with is adding the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price to the product pages (we have both simple and configurable products). We want to put it directly below the price (it seems a bit hidden under additional information).

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hello,

- Magento’s default check boxes for related products can be now enabled/disabled in the theme admin panel. They are disabled by default since they are rather confusing for most users.
- We’ll fix the sliders if there is only a single product.
- Unfortunately no.
- You would need to modify the CSS of the image box.
- Of course, via custom CSS (you can style anything)
