I have narrowed my decision on the theme to purchase, Ultimo and Acumen. Here’s my question, have you considered or will you be updating your theme to with the added performance benefits similar to the Acumen Theme? A responsive theme is what I set out to purchase but nothing else seems to stand up against the performance of the other. Please advise and correct if I’m wrong.

infortis

Hello,

Most of those performance benefits already exist in our theme. This year we’re also planning to add some additional optimization.

Kind regards

The category displays as list only. I cannot get the category to display as a grid and I’ve tried every setting in Magento and in the Ultimo theme. Any idea as to what is going on. I have no additional 3rd party extensions in the app. When I turn the Default theme back on the grid display works correctly. Any help would be a big help.

Thank you Don

Hello,

Basic category display (grid/list switcher) can be configured in Magento settings in System > Configuration, this is not part of the theme. Also, remember that you need to clear all caches.

If those settings doesn’t work for you, then this is some error on your end. You must have some modifications or custom sub-theme or some elements that left from previous theme which overrides Ultimo’s default code. 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

this will be the 4th time I’ve installed the theme. Thanks for the not so great support.

infortis
This works “out of the box”. So the only way it doesn’t work in your store is:
  • missing/broken/overridden theme files
  • or some errors in your Magento

It would be much easier to help you if you post a link to your site or show some screenshots.

Default-user

I got it going. The issue was NOT with the theme. it was a permission issue. Package would not extract into all the directories that it needed. It’s going now and is really nice so far.

infortis

Great to hear that. :)

I have added an custom slideshow in addition to the main slideshow on the homepage. How do I control the width of the additional custom slideshow? I’d like to have it take up only half of the container.

infortis

Hello,

You can put it inside a container that is half-page wide. Use built-in grid, in the user guide you can find more details and examples:
6.4 Grid system

Hi, need some help with menu. I need another tab like “category”, with sub page, how can i create that?

Thanks

i found: 1. To add more standalone drop-down blocks (not related to categories) similar to block “Custom” from the demo, you would need to customize the theme, by default there is only one block. Please see these files as an example:

app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/template/infortis/ultramegamenu/mainmenu.phtml: ...$this->getChildHtml(‘block_header_nav_dropdown’)...

app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/layout/infortis_ultramegamenu.xml: ...<block type=”cms/block” name=”block_header_nav_dropdown”>...

2. To insert simple custom links into the main menu bar, create (or import) static block block_nav_links – it stores custom links HTML for the main menu. Links should have the following structure (you can remove class “right” if you don’t want the link to float right side): <li class="level0 level-top right"> <a class="level-top" href="{{store direct_url='about-magento-demo-store'}}"> <span>About Us</span> </a> </li>

But i need to know what i have to add. Thanks for your support.

infortis

Hello,

Please note that custom content blocks can be added to each top-level category, even if category has no subcategories. This way you can easily create drop-down for any top-level category. To use it like this you will need to enable option: System > Configuration > Menu > Show Category Blocks if No Sub-categories

More standalone drop-down blocks (not related to categories) similar to block “Custom” from the demo can be added the same way as the block_header_nav_dropdown was added. Please see these files as an example:

app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/layout/infortis_ultramegamenu.xml:
<block type="cms/block" name="block_header_nav_dropdown">
    <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>block_header_nav_dropdown</block_id></action>
</block>
app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/template/infortis/ultramegamenu/mainmenu.phtml:
...
<?php //Static block as a drop-down box ?>
<?php if ($tmpHtml = $this->getChildHtml('block_header_nav_dropdown')): ?>
...
So you need to create more blocks in CMS > Static Blocks. Then add those blocks to the menu via the XML file, e.g.:
<block type="cms/block" name="block_header_nav_dropdown2">
    <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>block_header_nav_dropdown2</block_id></action>
</block>
And then call those blocks in the menu template (mainmenu.phtml), e.g.:
...
<?php //Static block as a drop-down box ?>
<?php if ($tmpHtml = $this->getChildHtml('block_header_nav_dropdown2')): ?>
...

Kind regards

Add the script in the indicated files, but no block appear, how can i show the block?

infortis

If applied correctly it will work. But please note that it isn’t a tutorial (we only show the way it has to be done) you need to be sure how to edit Magneto layout XML and where to add the block in template file. Unfortunately customization is beyond the scope of our support.

Here you can see an example of how to add static blocks to Magento template files: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10647650/how-to-call-magento-block-in-phtml-template

Hi,

interesting. On demo site (http://themeforest.net/item/ultimo-fluid-responsive-magento-theme/full_screen_preview/3231798) i see telephone icon.

But on that site: www.memsaabonline.co telephone icon not shown, like on my site. Firefox 26, Mac. Strrrrrrange :)

infortis

I see this icon on both sites in all browsers on PC, iPads, mobiles etc. (I don’t have any Mac to check unfortunately) so this seems to be some issue with your browser.

Hi,

I am having trouble with the search results filtering. We are using solr search. When I search for an item the results are displayed ocrrectly with options to filter the results. However when selecting an category to filter the results are not updated to reflect the change.

For example a search for “drill” might bring up 100 results. In the left menu there might be a category filter called “Power Tools” showing 20 items within it. If I click the category the left menu chnages to show I have selected “Power Tools” – it shows Currently Shopping by : Power Tools”. However the actual display of products has not changed – it is still showing 100 items.

If I change the config to remove the Ultimo theme the search works correctly.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Greg

infortis

Hello,

If you are using an extension for search then it overrides theme’s default behavior. So this extension doesn’t seem to be correctly integrated with the theme. Unfortunately we’re unable to guarantee that third-party extensions will work “out of the box” with our theme. This is extension author’s responsibility.

Please refer to chapter 2.3 Third-party extensions in the user guide for more details about third-party extensions.

You can test the theme in a clean fresh Magento installation, search will work without any problems, the same as in Magento’s “default” theme.

Kind regards

Hello! I am trying to get rid of some Sidebar blocks on my page. In standard Magento template it is located at Set in base/default/ layout/catalog.xml Could you point me out where woud I find this out on ultimo template files? Thanks

infortis

Hello,

You can find blocks in app\design\frontend\ultimo\default\layout\local.xml

Kind regards

infortis

I forgot to mention that if you’re making changes in layout files, don’t override Magento “base” theme’s files (such as “catalog.xml). Instead make layout changes directly in Ultimo’s local.xml.

how to completely disable search box?

infortis

Hello,

Try to disable Magento search module:
System > Configuration > Advanced > Mage_CatalogSearch

Best regards

Default-user

ops, I want to actualy place the search in nevigation.. so I need to remove from header.

infortis

Then you would need to customize the template file which is responsible for the header section.

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

You can also disable the module in System->Configuration->Advanced->Disable Modules Output :: Mage_CatalogSearch which may help reduce any resources it is using, and disables the feature from a url request typed into the browser bar.

Finally, to remove the links quickly and completely – remove catalogsearch.xml from your layout folder. This will effectively disable the search in all areas, and I don’t see it causing any fatal errors after trying it out on my test install.
