Hi Infortis,

I want to add two slideshows to my homepage. Please note that I want to use different slideshows for both of my multi store languages (Dutch and German).

Both slideshows should be placed on the spot where it now says “New in store” on the ultimo-home-page4 (demo store). The left slideshow should be the width of grid 12-4 and the right one grid 12-8.

1) how can I create this new slideshow and in which file? 2) how and where can I add these slideshow to my ultimo-home-page4?

Thanks so much for your help!

Ps. Love your theme!

infortis

Hello,

In Ultimo version 1.6.x you can display multiple custom slideshows on any CMS page and in any static block (in previous versions it wasn’t possible). To display a slideshow in a selected place you just need to use the slideshow shortcode, all details are described in the user guide
(11. Slideshow).

Best regards

Hi infortis,

I hope I’m not being to dumb here.. As you said, I tried to display 2 different slideshows as described in the userguide (11. slideshow + 6. Grids)

When I use text, both grids (12-4 and 12-8) are displayed next to eachother, as in the code below:

text on the left corner text on the right corner

BUT… when I use these same grids for displaying my slideshow (as in the code below), it doesn’t work..

{{block type=”ultraslideshow/slideshow” template=”infortis/ultraslideshow/slideshow.phtml” slides=”block_slide1, block_slide2”}} {{block type=”ultraslideshow/slideshow” template=”infortis/ultraslideshow/slideshow.phtml” slides=”block_slide1, block_slide2”}} :-( What am I doing wrong?

Grrrr…. the forum removes parts of the code here. Is there any other way I can show the code to you so you can see?

infortis

You can add code inside tags PRE (see more tags below the comment field at the bottom of this page).

Please try to use different slides in each slideshow code, e.g.
in #1 slideshow: slides=”block_slide1, block_slide2”
in #2 slideshow: slides=”block_slide3, block_slide4”

O yeah!! Your solution rocks infortis! :-) Thanks!

How can I get the left slideshow (grid12-4) the same height as the right one (grid12-8) ?

Ps. Sorry, wasn’t aware of the PRE tags..

I think I got it working!

Thanks so much for your help Infortis! :-)

infortis

Basically slideshow can have any height, it will adjust automatically to your images, so to make 2 slideshows the same height, you just need to calculate proper size of the images.

Best regards

Thanks! Is there a formula to calculate the 2 slideshows so that they have the same height? (12-4 and 12-8)

infortis

There is no special formula.

Okay.

How about changing / replacing icon as on the homepage? Where can I find those icons to replace them?
<span class="icon i-wordpress-w" />
infortis

Social icons by default are placed in static block block_footer_primary_bottom_left but they can be placed in any other block or page.

Full description of icons HTML/CSS can be found in the user guide.

Hi Infortis. I’ve found most of the icons with your help. Thanks!

I’m looking where to change the “Home” icon and the shopping card / basket icon. Could you tell me where to find those?

Thanks!

infortis

To change main interface icons you would need to customize the template files which are responsible for these blocks.

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

Hi Infortis,

  • I’ve found the template hints, but wasn’t able to find where the icons would be located exactly.
  • where can I change the width of the (sub)categories show in the expandable navigation menu? For instance, when I have a longer category name it now needs 2 lines, where as having the full category name shown on the same line would be visually more attractive
  • Thanks!

    infortis
    1. Templates:
    • app\design\frontend\ultimo\default\template\infortis\ultramegamenu\mainmenu.phtml
    • app\design\frontend\ultimo\default\template\checkout\cart\mini.phtml

    2. Please see option “Proportions: Subcategories / Block Right” in 13.2.1 Category Blocks configuration

    Great, that worked for me! :-)

    What things do I have to do when I want to rename the already installed Ultimo theme? (also allready changed banners and other stuff, so I don’t want to lose that when renaming the theme…)

    Thanks!

    infortis

    Changing name is not supported. If you want, you can label themes in your stores by creating custom sub-themes (with custom names).

    Hi, I don’t have the Menu option in System>Configuration>Infortis Extensions. I only see Slideshow, Zoom and Brands. I’m using the latest version of Ultimo and Magento 1.7.0.2.

    Thanks!

    infortis

    Hello,

    In that case not all files were uploaded to your server during installation (or you have other errors). Please install again. Before you do this refer to the “Troubleshooting” chapter in the user guide and check the list of possible sources of problems in chapter 14.1.1 (to prepare your Magento properly).

    How does one upgrade from Ultimo version 1.5.3-c to the new version? My boss purchased this template from Themeforest, and 1.5.3-c is the version that has been provided. Can you please tell me how to get the latest version. Thank you so much!

    • Bought between 50 and 99 items

    Just to explain, I see this message in themeforest: You have already purchased this file. You can download it here. If you wish, you can purchase it again.

    And this is the zip file that I installed here to learn: hightowerartists.com. yet, under Configuration, it says that I have 1.5.3.

    I did unzip the file on the server, but when I open the zip file on my computer it contains a folder for version 1.5.3.

    Where can I get the latest version? Can I get a free upgrade or do you need to pay for upgrades?

    Hello,

    I know that you’re not supposed to provide help with custom templates but I really need your help for this!

    How can I change the tabs position in the product view? I would like them to be below the Add To panel. In fact, I would like the tabs in the same position as the block_product_primary_bottom. I know how to create a child theme and how to edit templates but I can’t figure out how to change position of an element. Thank you for your help.

    infortis

    Hello,

    You would need to customize the template file which is responsible for the product page, and just change the position of the tabs there.

    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

    Default-user

    Thank you for you reply. I already use Template Path Hints. tabs.phtml is the template to make changes on the tabs but I can’t change the position of the block which contains the tabs… I don’t understand how to do that

    infortis

    tabs.phtml create tabs. But tabs are displayed inside product page template so you need to edit product page template (view.phtml).

    Thank you, that’s exactly what I was looking for.

    I’m just trying to create a product slider that displays only one product but contains 5 products. The code I’m using is:

    {{block type=”ultimo/product_list_featured” category_id=”16” product_count=”4” show_items=”1” is_ =”1” pagination=”true” move=”1” hide_button=”1” block_name=”Swiss Lace Closures” template=”catalog/product/list_item_slider.phtml”}}

    Isn’t the product_count=”4” show_items=”1” part correct? It’s still displaying 4 images for me. Thank you Infortis!!

    infortis

    Hello,

    1. Which version of the theme are you using? There were major changes in the sliders in version 1.6.0.

    2. Your code is invalid, please see: is_ =”1”

    Default-user
    swamyg1 Purchased

    Removed the is_ =”1” (don’t know how that got in there) but it’s still displaying 4 products… Only want to display 1. I am using version 1.6 with the new Owl sliders as well.

    infortis

    In new version you need to use parameter breakpoints to specify the number of visible products.

    {{block type="ultimo/product_list_featured" 
    template="catalog/product/list_featured_slider.phtml" category_id="16" product_count="5" breakpoints="[0, 1]" pagination="1" move="1" hide_button="1" block_name="Swiss Lace Closures"}}

    Please check the details in the new user guide:

    Hello,

    I’m looking for a way to align all elements to the red line on the left of the page (see screenshot below). I know that I should edit the CSS but I’m on it since yesterday and I don’t know how to do it, I tried to change padding and margin of a lot of div and classes but it doesn’t work… Anyone has a simple solution for this ?

    http://d.pr/i/MeKW
    infortis

    Hello,

    Different sections has different alignment because they can have background color, so they can’t be all in one line (we’re planning some changes here to add more control via admin panel).

    To find out which part of CSS you need to extend or override you can use Firebug, an add-on for Firefox: http://getfirebug.com/
    ( http://getfirebug.com/video/Intro2FB.mp4 ) or other similar tool.

    Kind regards

    Default-user

    Thank you but I already use Firebug and it doesn’t help. I tried everything and I can’t get what I want, it’s a real mess and I can’t get a clean alignement. Even on your theme demo we can see the sample custom banners are align on the left but not on the right…

    infortis

    Please ask about specific elements, otherwise I’m simply unable to advise.

    I didn’t receive an answer yesterday to my post/question about trying to download/access the latest version of Ultimo. Hopefully today you will be able to tell me how to get the latest version, when I go to “purchased downloads,” the version is still only version 1.5.3-c, not the most recent. How can I get the updated version please?

    how to sequence/ order of left side categories. its not working with category position on backend..

    It will work, you just need to re-index magento and flush all caches after you change the order of your categories in Magento admin.

    Hi

    I am trying to hide the lower sub categories in the menu, as there are too many and this is making the menu far too big. Is it possible to hide the sub categories.

    You can see these at www . giftscentral . co . uk

    under the Browse by Department >> Socks & Slippers >> Snoozies

    I need to hide the sub categories for the snoozies styles collections only

    thank you

    infortis

    Hello,

    Depth of the menu can be configured in your magento settings, please refer to the theme User Guide for more details:
    chapter 4.5.3 Depth of the menu

    For example, set the menu depth to “3”. This will hide the 4th level of sub-categories.

    Best regards

    Default-user

    Thank you, that solved it, I was trying to do it in the menu section of the them.

    Is there anyway we can limit the number of sub categories showing on the third level.

    For example only have it show 4 sub categories then have a more link to take you to the category page with al of the categories showing.

    Thank you

    infortis

    Unfortunately there’s no such option but we’re planning to add something similar in the future.

    Hello,

    Fortis theme has similar features, it just has different design. Third theme is Fortis for OpenCart.

    Kind regards

    thethirdmoon

    I really can’t find any different except very few things, like login account menu, and footer design Can you explin that’s different for both design? I can’t design what to install and that’s better option for me

    infortis

    Different is all what you can see in live demos. There are elements that are similar and elements that are different.

    Hi! I’m using Your theme! It’s cool. I have one two mini problems. I can’t translate top category of the category tree. It’s still showing as Categories (i’m using Russian), no other problems with translation, just it…

    Another question. I use two currencies, one for backend and one for frontend. When customer makes order it’s display him price in two currencies, but for money operations i’m using just frontend currency. Backend currency just for price correction. How can i hide backend currency from customer? Thank you!

    infortis

    Hello,

    Translation is Magento’s functionality, it’s not related to the theme.

    The same with currencies – it’s all part of Magento. Please refer to Magento documentation for details, for example: Magento user guide. More references can be found in our user guide:
    1. Help & Support

    Kind regards

    • Bought between 1 and 9 items

    Hi, why in demo, when change the currency, does not change the price in the block of new products (New in Store) in the homepage?

    infortis

    Hi,

    This is Magento bug related to cache. To fix, add “cache_lifetime” parameter to your new products block and set it to the minimum allowed (1 second).

    cache_lifetime="1"

    This will keep the New Products block uncached while safely keeping all other HTML block elements cached as usual. And if this issue is fixed in a future release of Magento, this fix can easily be removed by simply deleting the cache_lifetime

    Kind regards
