Hi, still love your product!

Question though: on my product-details-page I’ve got related products showing with the checkboxes turned on.

Ticking the checkboxes now results in the product being added to the wishlist. I’d like to change that so that ticking the checkboxes adds a product to the shoppingcart.

Could you point me in the right direction for where I can change this?

Kind regards

infortis

Hello,

It doesn’t work this way by default, those checkboxes add products to the cart, not to the wishlist. This is Magento’s functionality not related to the theme, please refer to Magento documentation for details, for example: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/4_-_themes_and_template_customization/catalog/welcome_to_the_magento_user_s_guide

The only thing that our theme adds here is that you can disable those checkboxes in System > Configuration > Ultimo > Settings > Default Magento blocks

Best regards

Hi there,

I want 16 products to be displayed at my homepage, but not in a slider, but 4 rows of 4 products and not moving, just like a category page.

How can I realise that in Pages/home?

Have you got a rule like, {{block type=”ultimo/produ….........atured_slider.phtml”}}

Thanks in advance!

Pim.

Fixed already, thanks.

Ultimo is an excellent template but only the negative point is no AJAX add to cart. You say many extensions are available for this functionality but integrating this extensions is very difficult since all this extensions replaces template files. Currently, I am trying to implement this functionality using the post below http://www.excellencemagentoblog.com/magento-add-product-to-cart-ajax below is the link to my website where it is implemented http://vibranthobbies.com/f22-raptor.html But, I am stuck in updating the mini cart by Ajax. The problem is in STEP 4 of the tutorial. Is it possible to help me in this regards ? I know this is out of your support. Kumaran

Hello,

Adding ajax to the theme isn’t as simple as following this tutorial. Ajax cart is rather complicated feature. For example: if product has options you can’t add it with one click, you need to display pop-up block with product options. If products have tier-prices you also need to handle that. And add-to-cart buttons are present in many places in the store, not only on product page. So there are many problems which need to be solved. That’s why prices of ajax cart extensions are usually higher than the price of any theme on ThemeForest.

We’re thinking about implementing an ajax cart for this theme but as an optional extension. If we added ajax cart to the theme, we would need to raise the price, and we’d prefer to avoid that. So an extension that is compatible with the theme “out of the box” seems to be a reasonable option. What do you think about that? We’ll be happy to know the opinion of all of our customers, so if anybody is reading this – please share your opinion. (:

Regarding the tutorial, please let me know if you have any specific question, without it I can only advise to strictly follow the tutorial, I didn’t try it so unfortunately I don’t have any other advises on that. (:

Kind regards

Default-user

I agree with you and I vote for the extension that is compatible with the theme “out of the box”. Ignore my question about the tutorial.

I uploaded Ultimo and now the Cloudzoom of my Fortis 1.3.1 doesn’t work anymore.

Please release the new Fortis release asap, thanks!

infortis

Hello,

Fortis 2 is already available since a few months. :)

Kind regards

Default-user

Yes I know. Since I have a custom sub theme, I need to change quite a few files and I don’t want to do all the work twice.

Therefore I’m waiting for the release which you announced for today or tomorrow ;-)

infortis

There may be a little delay (as always :) ) but the new version of Fortis will be ready this week. For now you can try to make a test upgrade on a test installation (e.g. a copy of your store) since you have a custom sub-theme in very old version of Fortis so in your case upgrade process may require quite a lot of work.

I upgraded to 1.8 and now i canĀ“t pass checkout step 4, do you have any solution for it? Kind Regards

infortis

Hello,

Checkout is Magento’s core functionality not related to the theme, the checkout process wasn’t modified in our theme (checkout was only styled with CSS), so this is not a theme error.

Before we released the update we tested it with Magento 1.8 and it works 100% fine without any problems. So the issue is specific to your Magento installation: it may be caused by some custom modifications or by third-party extensions installed in your Magento (make sure extensions are compatible with new Magento). Also, make sure you upgraded Magneto properly.

If you enable Magneto’s “Template Path Hints”, you can see that the step 4, as well as entire checkout, is created by template files from Magento’s “base” theme (app/design/frontend/base/default/), not by Ultimo:

Kind regards

Default-user

Ok thank you, i will try to figure it out… You said “Before we released the update”, where can i find it?

infortis

You can check similar issues on Magento forum: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewchild/42330/

infortis

Today we’ve uploaded an update that makes Ultimo compatible with Magento 1.8.0.0, to get the latest version you can always re-download the theme from your account.

Default-user

If i re.install, will i lose my color settings?

infortis

No, your settings are safe in the database, you can re-install.

Default-user

Thank You :-)

Hello Again I have made 2 things: 1- Switched the theme back to default/default, and the step 4 checkout problem disappears!!!

2. Switch back to ultimo/default and upgraded the theme (disabled cache, put maintenance.flag and all the rest… as instructed), and everything went smooth until i re-logged, i got this error: Failed generating CSS file: design_if_pt.css in /var/www/html/magento/htdocs/skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/ Message: Permission denied for write to /var/www/html/magento/htdocs/skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config And i get the same every time i save config (layout or Design)
infortis

1. This only means that you may have some customization or custom extensions which force Magento to use some template files which are not fully compatible with 1.8.

We’v tested Ultimo with Magento 1.8 and checkout works without any problems. Please contact our support via the contact form on our profile page http://themeforest.net/user/infortis for further assistance and provide more details (link to the site would be very helpful).

2. This is server issue, your Magneto doesn’t have permissions to write files in folder skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config You need to set correct file permissions for that folder and files inside to let Magneto write files.

Hi,

1. Can you please take a look at why my site is breaking – www.bookjugad.com

2. How can I download your previous versions?

Thanks & Regards, Mickey

infortis

Hello,

Your images are not displayed. If all files were uploaded and paths are correct, it means that your Magento doesn’t have access to those images because of incorrect file permissions on your server. Please see the Troubleshooting chapter in the user guide: 14.1.10 Images are not displayed

Only the latest version is always available.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thank you for prompt reply.

The links are also not working (like about us etc..) Is this the same issue as incorrect file permission on server?

Thanks & Regards, Mickey

infortis

These issues are not related to the theme, theme doesn’t control your pages etc., you must have some errors in your Magento or third-party extensions.

Check your log files in var/log/. Also, refer to the “Troubleshooting” chapter and check if you installed Ultimo properly.

Hi Guys,

Two support questions related to iPad viewing. I have template version 1.5.4 installed.

1. I have responsive ‘enabled’, but the the zoom does not work when viewing on an ipad. From memory, I thought this was fixed in a previous update, but either way – do you currently have any solutions?

2. Secondly, my site doesn’t scroll smoothly, especially the images. As the page moves up/down, the content appears slightly jagged – almost like I need my eyes testing!

For Q2, I can give the domain, but it’s password protected – prefer to email privately.

Many thanks

infortis

Hello,

1. It may depend on how big are you images, link to your site would be very useful.
2. I’m not sure I understand the issue, please contact us via the contact form on our profile page http://themeforest.net/user/infortis and send the link.

Kind regards

We sell quite a lot of products in many different categories, with results in a complex site structure. For example: domain/category1/category2/category3/product

Therefore our menu has to be compact for good usability.

I would like to display categorie1 and category 2 in the menu, but category3 must only be visible in the sidemenu. The problem is that when I exclude category3 from menu, it also disappears from the sidemenu. What’s the solution to this problem?

Kind Regards

infortis

Hello,

You can set menu depth to 2 (see user guide for details: 4.5.3 Depth of the menu), and sidebar menu depth to 3 (13.4.5 Sidebar Menu). No need to exclude categories.

thank you joe

infortis

Hi,

Custom links can be easily added to the top menu, please see the user guide: 13.3 Custom links in the menu. You can also exclude categories from the top menu. All available options are in the user guide: 13.4 Menu configuration

But sidebar menu only displays categories, no custom links.

Hi,

first of all: Great theme! Really flexible, and your documentation is excellent. But, I have one issue which I can’t seem to fix: In the left navigation on a category page, on top of the category list, you see “Categories”. And I can’t translate it. It isn’t available with inline translation, and changing the translation file doesn’t help either. It feels a bit stupid to setup a new language file for just 1 word. Do you know how to fix this?

Thanks!

Jacco

Hi,

Great theme with great manual – thanks!

I have moved the search bar to the right hand side of the header, but it will not go fully to the right. Also in mobile view , the search bar is not centered correctly.

I’d like it laid out like

this http://ultimo.infortis-themes.com/demo/third/ but it looks

like this – http://www.etailisdetail.com/ultimo/

Thanks – Ian

infortis

Hello,

You didn’t fully update the theme, e.g. this CSS in styles.css was removed but it is still there in your stylesheet:
.header .form-search {
    margin: 0 auto;
    position: relative;
    width: 80%;
}

I see that you have it in your sub-theme: skin/frontend/ultimo/aztheme/css/styles.css

but in that case you should also update styles.css which is present in your sub-theme. Otherwise it overrides all changes that we’ve made in original styles.css in the update.

But the best option is to keep all your custom CSS in custom.css file instead override entire style.css in your sub-theme. Thanks to that you will not need to remember to update skin/frontend/ultimo/aztheme/css/styles.css every time you install new theme update.

Kind regards

amazing work you do !!!

Hi.. I have some doubts:

1) How do I include a Carrossel brands on home?

2) How do I include a Carrossel of products on home?

3) How do I include menu o left of categories?

4) How do I include an image on TOP of categories?

infortis

Hello,

Please try the documentation first, all features and options are described there, we highly recommend reading it cover-to-cover. And if you use search function in your PDF reader it will only take you a few seconds to find anything you need.

1) chapter 12. Brands

2) chapter 6.1.3 Home page blocks

3) chapter 13.4.5 Sidebar Menu

4) chapter 4.5 Categories

Best regards
