Hello,

The new version includes demo database. Quick start demo package.

The manual doesn’t have a paragraph how to install. Can you add this ?

Default-user

Hello Ultimo Users/Infortis!

I need an extension which will provide a popup for newsletter signup on homepage. Does anyone know any such responsive extension which works out of box with ultimo?

Also, has anyone tried the extension “Total Slider Manager – Responsive sliders” available in magento connect. Does it work well with ultimo? I need some slides on category landing pages. http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/total-slider-manager-responsive-sliders.html

Thanks!

Hello,

Unfortunately we don’t have any extensions to recommend, we don’t test extensions very often.

Kind regards

I would like to know how to show a product attribute following the same logic as the SKU which is available on the admin panel for Ultimo. My intention is to show the brand (which I have used Magento´s field “manufacturer”) however can not find a solution on the documentation provided. In case I need to edit the PHTML please provide a complete example. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

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

Find a proper place in the template file and then add your code there. Information about how to call a custom product attribute can be found in many tutorials on Magneto forum or on other similar websites.

Hello. I am having some problems getting my product page to look like your demo. All my thumbnails are lining up to the left of the main image instead of below and in a slider format. Under manage products >product >design>custom design, i have ‘ultimo’ ‘default’ selected. I would of thought that would of done the trick, but no luck.

infortis

Hello,

By default thumbnails are displayed horizontally in the slider, just like in our demos. It works like this out of the box. If it works different on your site, then you must have some custom modifications or extensions which overrides theme’s default code.

Maybe you have just disabled the entire Zoom module in System > Config > Zoom?

Also, don’t set theme in product settings (product > design > custom design), theme should only be enabled in System > Configuration > Design.

Kind regards

How can I show the “Custom Menu” in navagation menu in mobile templates? Now this menu-item will hide. (also for the “About us” with dropdown)

Default-user

only css or also javascript? Not simple so.

infortis

As you can see in the mobile menu there are elements with [+] icon:

<span class="opener"> </span>

So you will probably need to add it so that your custom block will be show/hidden after clicking the [+] icon. See how it works in the mobile menu and replicate mobile menu’s markup.

Hi,

Can you please advise me in which place I change the text of add to cart button, view cart and continue shopping, update cart etc.. Thanks

infortis

Hello,

For support please kindly use the account which was used to buy the theme on ThemeForest. Thank you.

Kind regards

I have all the blocks and pages set up for my existing site but now I am creating a substore using the same theme and blocks, but I need to edit the appearance and information for the new sub-store. How do I go about this in regard to changing the block identifiers for the new substore? Will they still work?

Thanks

infortis

Hello,

In Magento you can create many versions of the same block (each version for different store view).

For example, if you have two languages (two store views) – english and german: create two versions of the static block (with the same ID). Then, assign each block to a different store view – one to english store view and second to german store view. Finally, don’t forget to flush the cache.

Kind regards

Hi Can you please advise how I add contact phone number above search in header section? Thanks

Kindly Regards

infortis

Hello,

It can be added to one of the static blocks in the ehader, all available blocks are described in the user guide, chapter 6.2 Built-in CMS blocks.

Kind regards

Hi,

I would like to add another block to the header but not a drop down menu. could you please advise on this?

infortis

Hello,

1. There are many blocks in the header, all available blocks are described in the user guide, chapter 6.2 Built-in CMS blocks

2. It looks like you didn’t disable Magneto’s WYSIWYG and it appended your code in block block_nav_links with ul tags which shouldn’t be there.

Kind regards

Hi, I fixed it already. but now i am facing another problem, when i try to upload images to my products, it says this: Image type and information need to be specified for each store view. Is this related to the theme? because i dont know how to edit the image type and information from the backend of the store.

infortis

It is not related to the theme, image upload is Magento’s core functionality. But don’t worry about this message, just make sure you upload images for all stores (if you have more than one):

select Default Values under “Choose Store View” in the top left corner of this section of the admin panel.

You can find more info about Magento in Magento manuals, there are some links in theme user guide (PDF).

On the Product Page, is it possible to have just the photo and description occupy the entire page? No brand logo or Related Products in the right block or would this block just remain empty space if there were no content?

infortis

Hi,

Yes, right block can be disabled, it is possible the same way as we described for Fortis theme.

Kind regards

I’ve added SSL to my site and I’m getting a warning that some items may not be secure during checkout. I’ve compared text for a secure page and the unsecure checkout page. I think I’ve found the problem but need verification:

http://www.diffchecker.com/5wghwxuk

Left side is secure, right side is secure with some unsecure items.

Mid way down the page, if you search http:// there is two javascript codes calling to http:// functions. These are not on the left side. Is this script the problem?

I hope you can answer this. Thanks!

infortis

Hello,

Please list those unsecure items, the file is long.

Kind regards

They are on the following lines on the right side: 195 – JS onclick http:// 760 – JS link 904 – JS link 1139- JS link

These lines are just the JS http:// that are in the greenbox, meaning the code doesn’t match the left side. I’m assuming it’s one of these elements. There are a few other http:// requests that the other secure page didn’t have but these are the ones that relate to JavaScript. The rest are just anchors.

I’m still learning about SSL but from what I’ve researched, it’s going to be an element that isn’t an https request and it should be.

You can see the security warning by going to http://armoregg.com/ and adding a product to the cart, then check out.

Thanks, Skye

Where can I find change phone “Call +001 555 801” To My phone. If this issues already in post, Can some point to right page. Thank you

Hello,

It is in one of the static blocks in the header, all available header blocks are described (with screenshots) in the user guide, chapter 6.2 Built-in CMS blocks -> 6.2.1 Header.

Any plans to implement a top categories slider where you can set a custom image for the category slider image?

infortis

Hello,

We’re not planning to add special slider for categories, but we’re planning (in one of the next updates) to implement a slider which can be added to any custom block/page so that it will be possible to put it at the top of the category pages.

Kind regards

Hi, would you mind to give me a list of the top websites who are using the template. Thank you in advance.

Hi, i want to ask you if the ultimo theme is compatible with any blog extension?

infortis

Hello,

Unfortunately we don’t test third-party extensions with our theme since there are thousands of extensions, but generally this theme can work with any extension which was correctly installed (see chapter 2.3 Third-party extensions in the user guide for more details about extension installation). Of course we’re unable to guarantee that third-party extensions will work “out of the box”.

Hi There,

There is a big gap between Left Main banner (home page main slide) and right 3 box banner. How can I lower the gap. I wasn’t able to find any way.

Regards SAGE

infortis

Hello,

The gaps are added automatically by grid classes which are built into the slideshow e.g. .grid12-9 for container with class .the-slideshow

In case you want to customize the slideshow: to check which template files you need to edit to customize specific sections of Magento, you can enable Magento’s “Template Path Hints”, it will display the names of template file of each block in the front-end. Please see this short video tutorial for more details: http://vimeo.com/1067069


Kind regards

Default-user

Hi the video didn’t work on me. Please take a look at your Demo 1. or www.ezzibo.com/2014

You will see a big gap between main slide and the left box. what can I do to lower the gap ?

Right now it has about 30px gap. I like to keep the gap at 5px.

infortis

The video shows how to enable Magento’s “Template Path Hints” which will display the names of template file of the slideshow: app\design\frontend\ultimo\default\template\infortis\ultraslideshow\slideshow.phtml

The gap between slide and small banners isn’t configurable. To change it you would need to modify the template file of the slideshow.

Hi

Am still getting the error message

Failed generating CSS file: design_default.css in /home/lampsdir/public_html/skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config/ Message: Permission denied for write to /home/lampsdir/public_html/skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config

when I try to change the Heading Font Faily to Geneva.

I have followed all the advice about permissions and there should be no problem now, but still the error.

I read in another comment about making sure all theme files are copied to skin/frontend/base/default/css folder

These were not installed by the initial theme setup so am confused. At the moment the file that I have problems updating is located in the skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config folder does it need to be in the base folder too ?

Am at a loss how to fix this now, any suggestions ?

Thanks

Nick

infortis

Hello,

1. Your Magento must have permissions to write in the following directory: skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config

Your error message “Permission denied for write to home/lampsdir/public_html/skin/frontend/ultimo/default/css/_config” simply means that your Magneto doesn’t have access to write there. Changing file permissions is not always all you need to do. You may have some incorrect instructions in .htaccss etc. File permissions may differ depending on server and it is not related to the theme. In case of any doubts about permissions, please contact your hosting provider. Refer to this article for more details:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/magento_filesystem_permissions


2. Also check this: in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/infortis/ultimo/css you should see these three files: design.phtml, grid.phtml, layout.phtml. They need to be accessible for Magneto so you need to set correct file permissions for those files.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks for coming back on this

Have tried all of the above and everything is correct, populated and permissions etc Still getting the error message.

Is most confusing is it possible it’s something in the theme that’s not right ?

Regards

Nick

infortis

There’s no possibility that this is theme issue, Magento clearly informs that “Permission denied for write to …”

Hi,

Instead of having default Add to Cart, View Cart, Update Cart. Is there is any way to change the text.. Do I need do it via php program or you got any button images/text to change..

I am new to this thread and please help me out Thanks..

Hello,

No, all interface labels in Magento can be changed through translation files in app/locale/. Also, this chapter in the user guide may be helpful: 4.9.1 Interface translation

Hi, Quick question.

Your download file includes the theme for 1.5,1.6 and 1.8.

I’m running 1.7 and I’m having trouble updating to 1.8 so im going to keep on 1.7. but the question was will i have any issues if i use the 1.6 version with magento 1.7.02?

Thanks

infortis

Hi,

Theme.zip is for all versions of Magneto. Those other folders are only “patches”, they just add some specific theme files for Magento 1.5, 1.6 and 1.8.

So if you want to use Ultimo on Magento 1.8 install Theme.zip and then apply “patch” for magneto 1.8.

Best regards

Default-user

Well i want to use your theme on 1.7, so i would just use the theme.zip and nothing else?

infortis

Yes, just Theme.zip. If you will follow the installation instructions in the manual (3. Installation) you will not need to think about which files are needed and which are not, it’s all clearly explained there.
