Hello Again,

On the product page. I have uploaded the picture but the frame surrounding the picture is extended on the right side. It does not wrap the dimensions of the image. Also, cloudzoom does not work. http://www.screencast.com/t/fd6DNkpq23

Thanks

infortis

Hello,

You uploaded too small images or you didn’t configure proper size for your images. Please check this chapter in the user guide for more details: 7.5 Product Page

Hi infortis, is the database currently included, or just the demo content blocks and cms pages?

We worked on this theme a long time ago, and did some customization, and we had difficulties with the menus, now we have a client that wants these beautiful menus, but if the database is not included i am afraid i have to decline.

infortis

Hello,

Sample database will be included within a week. We had to prepare an update for Magento 1.8 first, now we’re updating our demo and after that we will prepare a sample database so that it will be exactly the same as the new demo (after upcoming update).

Kind regards

Hi, as this is my first Magento theme, I noticed that I missed the possibility to add or reduce the quantity through a ”+” or ”-”. I’ve tried a plug-in that didn’t work. What do you suggest?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!!!

infortis

Hello,

We don’t have this element out of the box so you would need to customize the theme or install some extension. Please check manikumaran’s comment:

Hello,

We are running a multisite, how can we have different brands show up only on the site that we assign it to. so if we add the images to site 1, we put the images in media/wysiwyg/infortis/brands/site1 and this does not mess with site2.

Thanks,

infortis

Hello,

There is no such feature in the current version, but brand module will be improved in one of the next updates.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks, I would up making a copy of our home page and hard coded the brand slider on each page. I then replaced the images and the urls. It is not as user-friendly or dynamic as what is built in, but it was the best work around I could think of.

Thanks,

infortis

Another possibility (but not tested).

In brand module you can specify different brand attribute for each store view. You can do this in: System > Configuration > Brands > Brand Attribute Code

So it is possible to create many brand attributes. By default theme uses Magento’s attribute manufacturer, but you could create more similar attributes to create multiple sets of brands. E.g. manufacturer_phones, manufacturer_clothes etc. – each attribute for different type of products.

Then you can add each attribute to a different attribute set. So for example: add manufacturer_phones to the attribute set which you use to create phones in your Magento, add manufacturer_clothes to the attribute set which you use to create clothes etc. etc. So each store will use different set of brands.

Hi I have 2 store views with following codes: “en” and “default”. If i change the “default” to “de” the theme doesnt work anymore (wrong css, no fluid, no responsive). What am i missing? Thanks, Iulian

infortis

Hello,

In version 1.4.x or earlier: After you create new store view, click “Refresh CSS” buttons as stated in the user guide.

In versions newer than 1.4.x, re-save settings: go to System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Design and click Save Config button. Then go to System > Configuration > Ultimo > Theme Layout and click Save Config button again.

Hello,

would this theme work with EE 1.3.1?

If not, what areas would need to be modified?

Thanks

infortis

Hello,

This theme was designed for Magento Community Edition. It will work with Magento Enterprise Edition, but you may need some minor customization (since Magento EE has some additional features).

I was wondering if you or anyone else has gotten any one-step-checkout plugins working with this theme, we’ve tried many but it always breaks the checkout process. Is there a way to make it work back to default settings or if you (or anyone) knows of something I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

infortis

Hello,

You can integrate extensions with Magento and this theme can work with any extension which was correctly integrated.

We’re unable to test third-party extensions since there are thousands of them, so we don’t have any to recommend. But generally all extensions can work with all themes, in some cases they just have to be integrated manually. That’s because sometimes the extension and the theme override the same Magento template file so there can be a conflict. In such cases you need to customize the theme and merge two conflicting template files into one template file. Please refer to chapter 2.3 Third-party extensions in the user guide for more details.

Hello, is easy to incluse paypall checkout? On admin module? Any way to include this way of payment https://pagseguro.uol.com.br/#rmcl Thanks Mateus

infortis

Hello,

This theme can work with any payment method installed in your Magento. But this is not related to the theme, you install such extensions in Magento, not in the theme.

Hello, how well does this theme do with extensions that change the admin panel functionality?

infortis

Hello,

Admin panel extensions usually do not interfere with themes since they work in the back-end and themes work in the front-end, so you shouldn’t have any problems.

In template/page/html/footer_theme_scripts.phtml, there are 2 instances of the jQuery#hover() function being called on every single product grid item, which is inefficient:
$('.category-products-grid > .item').hover(function() {
    // ... mouseover code here
}, function() {
    // ... mouseout code here
});
These should be replaced by event delegation instead:
$('.category-products-grid').on('mouseenter', '.item', function() {
    // ... mouseover code here
}).on('mouseleave', '.item', function() {
    // ... mouseout code here
});
Doing so also allows product grid items to be dynamically loaded without breaking this theme’s hover effect.
infortis

Hello,

You’re right, delegated event will be more efficient here. Thank you very much for contributing.

Hi,

Is there a way in Ultimo to create CMS Pages drop downs? For example, I currently have OUR_X, OUR_Y and I would like to add sub-pages under OUR_X in the navigation menu.

I am aware that there is a “Custom Block” option – but, there is only one. Is there a way to make more?

Alternatively, is there another solution that will allow me to create drop-down menu for CMS Pages?

To add some more information: I also tried to install the “Clever CMS” plugin (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/clever-cms.html) but it didn’t work. For some reason if I enabled it, it just did not appear in the Navigation Menu.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Default-user

additional info: I am currently using the “block_nav_links” to display the 3 CMS Pages I have at the moment. I would like to have a few drop-downs from each of these pages to more CMS pages.

infortis

Hello,

Static block “block_nav_links” is a placeholder for any custom content so you build there any menu elements. You can for example copy the HTML of existing drop-down and use it to create your own.

Regarding extensions, please check the chapter 2.3 Third-party extensions in the user guide for more details.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks. Do you have any example for an HTML code of the same dropdown used in Ultimo so I can use as well? I want it to look and feel the same. Your help and guidance is much appreciated.

infortis

You can open the source of our demo (in most browsers: click CTRL+U) and copy any part of the original HTML.

hello. I created sub-theme folder. It was working fine, but somehow my icons disappeared. (arrows for sliders, add to wishlist, twitter etc. All of icons)

Can you please let me know how to fix it. I don’t know what I did. Sub-theme is copied from default folder.

Thank you.

infortis

Hello,

When you copy CSS file to the sub-theme, you also need to copy directory with images.

Also note that when you’re creating sub-themes in Magneto you should only copy the files which you want to modify. Do not copy all files. Otherwise you will have tons of work with any upgrade in the future.

Second, if you’re using custom sub-theme, don’t copy folder skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/ to your sub-theme, that folder should stay in the default theme. Otherwise it will override all your theme configuration from the admin panel.

And if you need to make some small changes in a selected CSS file, just override that CSS in your custom.css (see details in the user guide). No need to override entire file. Otherwise upgrading the theme in your store will require a lot of work from you.

For more details about theme customization please refer to chapter 5. Customization in the user guide (or 6.6 Theme customization in the previous versions of the user guide).

Hello, we would like to change the size of the products shown on the home page grid with 3 columns setup, at the moment they are being limited to 118px height and the size is being set by a inline css config so I can’t override it with custom.css, looks like it’s auto calculated

Default-user

Also have a problem with the “Shop by” showing up before the Categories menu, and I tried to touch the layout xml files to change it’s order but I can’t move it.

Default-user

Need to get this sorted please…

infortis

Hello,

You can modify the width of images directly in the slider templates:
    $imgWidth = 168;
    $imgHeight = 168;

When you want to customize a theme in Magento, you can display the name of template file of every 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

Regarding the sidebar menu, it is always added on top. Order is set in layout files in app\design\frontend\ultimo\default\layout\. You can customize it there but changing order of block in Magneto can be sometimes tricky. Unfortunately custom modifications are beyond the scope of our support. You can find many tutorials and articles about Magento layout XML on the web, e.g.:

Kind regards

Default-user

I have changed the values on the slider templates and it doesn’t have any effect on the displayed products (I don’t have any kind of cache/compilation enabled) and I just want to move the shop by block down like in your demo pages, I went to the layout files and there is no mention at all to the shop by block, please look at it because it’s not the first time I modify layouts.

Default-user

I fixed the Shop By sorting, but still can’t resize images on the slider :(

infortis

1. Please be more specific. You told “grid on home page”, but there’s no grid on home page by default. So what exactly you referred to?

I assumed that you want to change image size in product sliders. If yes, then you can do it in new.phtml and list_featured_slider.phtml in app\design\frontend\fortis\default\template\catalog\product\

But I’m not sure what you’re trying to achieve. There are parameters (e.g. to control the number of products) in sliders so please first check if they don’t do what you need.

2. “Shop By” (the same as dozens of other blocks) is Magneto’s functionality so you will not find in in the theme files. Please refer to Magneto documentation for details.

Default-user

I will try to be more clear, I’m using the catalog/product_new block to display new products on the homepage of the shop, as the block code says, I have to tweak the new.phtml file, so I play with that file and change the $imgWidth and $imgHeight values, which does nothing. Next thing I try is to do (seeing that the size of the image is being declared with css inline [{li class=”item” style=”width: 152.25px; float: left; display: block;”}] is try to find where it gets the size from, so I see that if the products shown are >=8 class is size-xs and if >= 6 class is size-s, but I didn’t find where it did calculate the size if it weren’t that case.

So in the end what I did was, setup the max-products to 4 (that was what I wanted) and add a custom.css margin to the itemslider products so at the end I got 158px width image size that was what I wanted.

Now another question, is there any quick way to avoid the block code displaying all the products in the same line and creates a new row every 4 products? (Avoiding using the slider) Thanks for the help in advance.

I am trying to test your demo sites on an iPhone 5 and the pages are not resizing. Everything on the page is very small/unreadable. It does not look like the screen mockups on your “Item Details” page.

Please advise. Thanks.

infortis

Hello,

You may need to disable ThemeForest’s frame at the top left corner (the black bar) when viewing the demo.

Kind regards

Default-user

Yes, that was it. Now it looks great on my iPhone. Thanks.

Hello! How to translate “Cart” in the header? I have pretty much translated everything, but I can’t find the place where I could translate “Cart”. I tried inline translating, but the animation covers the translating button.

Thank you!

infortis

Hello,

This theme introduces a few additional interface labels, all labels are located in app/design/frontend/<ThemeName>/default/locale/en_US/translate.csv. This file can be used to translate the interface into other languages. It can also be used to change one text to another text. For more details please refer to the user guide: 4.9.1 Interface translation

Hi, Just installed a fresh magento 1.8 then added the latest ultimo template. When trying to install the ‘Static Blocks’ I get an ‘internal server error’ and the following appears in the server logs

[warn] mod_fcgid: process XXXXX graceful kill fail, sending SIGKILL

installing the ‘pages’ works fine. I’ve tried allocating more memory and increased script length with no success.

Any ideas? can I install this manually?

thanks

infortis

Hello,

This is server error not related to the theme, I’m sorry but I’m unable to advise on this. Maybe this will be helpful: http://forums.cpanel.net/f189/tuning-fastcgi-mod_fcgid-settings-cpanel-268641.html

In case you need the original content of some static blocks (or pages), XML file with all blocks can be found in the following directory: app\code\local\Infortis\<ThemeName>\etc\import\.

Hello,

This is Magento’s functionality so the error is not related to the theme.

No worries, already solved this one. Thanks

Sure thing, happy to help others.

Edit

lib/Zend/Pdf/FileParserDataSource.php change

abstract public function __construct(); to

abstract public function __construct($filePath);
