Hi Infortis!

Nice, we were waiting for something like that long ago. Only one question: is it easy not to show prices and “add to cart” button on home page sliderĀ“s sliders? Or adding a brand logo slider? We need it if posible

Regards

infortis

Hello,

Sure, you can hide button and price with simple change in CSS . Brand slider will be added in one of the updates.

Great! Updates will be free if I purchase your theme now or if a new Magento version is released shortly?

infortis

After you purchase the theme for your store, you will be able to download all future updates without any additional fee.

Hy, very nice theme guys. Before I purchase it, i have an little question. Can I change the the place of the related products with the You may also be interested in the following product(s)? Thanks

infortis

Hi.

This is not configurable in the admin panel, you would need to customize the product page template file.

I installed these theme while all files seem to be in place and the admin shows all links I get a blank page when I try to load the store.

Your documentation says to change the user premissions of all files.

Can you explain exactly how to do that. I am guessing you mean to change the user name of the main ultimo folders and apply to all subfolders. since my ftp client won’t do that (permission issue) i guess this needs to be done in terminal. can you give me all the necessary steps please. thanks

infortis

Hello,

Please delete all files inside these directories of your Magento: var/cache and var/session. This should help. Otherwise the problem is not caused by the theme.

Permissions can cause problems only in some cases. Usually you don’t need to change them. Just make sure that all theme files (after uploading to your server) have the same permissions as Magento files (note that permissions for floders can be different than permissions for files)

Default-user

Following your instructions I deleted all data in var/cache but I did not have any session files in there.

I also checked the permissions of a few of the ultimo files and they all have the user name and group that my other magento files have. their permissions are 644 rather than 666. if you want me to change them to 666, could you provide the command line commands to do so. there is too many files to do this manually… thanks!

infortis

If your files have the same permissions that other Magento files, then you don’t need to change them. Please make sure that you didn’t accidentaly delete any Magento files. Also check your log files (var/log folder). This kind of issue can’t be caused by the theme.

Hi,

I’d like to use this item for a makeover of my Magento store. The store is currently in production mode at “example.com”. I have a second installation for the purpose of testing and developement on a sub-domain “sandbox.example.com”.

Is it possible to install this theme for my subdomain installation first, just for testing purposes, and afterwards install the theme for the production store?

Thanks!

infortis

Hello,

Yes, with ThemeForest regular licence you can use the theme on one domain or subdomain, but you can install it for testing purposes on other domain too.

The theme is also ready for multistore installations (if you will need it in the future).

Hi Infortis team,

Thanks for the quick reply! I’ve installed the package for my subdomain. The install process was very well documented in the user guide. Things seems to run pretty smooth and look great!

I have two questions:

1. Is it possible to have more than one custom block in the main menu? How do I make the tab of such a custom block clickable? And is it possible to have the (non-active) background color of just one navigation tab different from the others.

2. How to remove or comment out the AddThis buttons on the product page? I’m using my own Magento AddThis plugin and I can’t find the Ultimo Theme buttons in the block_product_secondary_bottom

That’s actually four questions :)

Thanks for the amazing and flexible Magento Theme!!

infortis

1. There is only one custom block in the menu. To make it clickable, add more blocks or make other changes you would need to customize the template files.

2. AddThis buttons are at the bottom of the block (with “addthis_toolbox” class).

Fantastic! I’ve been waiting for a theme like this, one that doesn’t break in tablet or smartphone views! I tested on responisve.is and so far, so good.

Couple of questions before I purchase. 1. Customer Reviews Tab – Does the final content (what the customer entered for review) appear on the product page or the separate reviews page that ships with magento? I’d rather the reviews appear on the product page for ease of use and additional content.

2. Custom Tabs – I have a swatch cms block that should go first, before the description tab. Is the tabs view easy (or at least somewhat easy) to customize for this? (not a stranger to Magento Layout)

3. I run a single installation of Magento for multiple stores with a single checkout. I.E., site1, site2, site3, all check out on mainsite.com. You said
Applicable for multi-language and multi-store installations
I take it that this theme would work for me?
infortis

Hello,

Nice site for testing, we didn’t know it.

1. Yes. Please see this example.

2. To add custom tabs you will only need to add reference to that tab in the layout file local.xml. We’re following Magento best practices so all layout updates are located in one XML file, well-commented so you will have no problems with that.

3. Yes, it will work like you described. 99% of the settings can be different for each store view.

Fantastic. Just what I needed. One purchase on the way.

rumblepup

Got it, thanks so much. Playing with it now.

Template is great! Spent a full month working with another, full of bugs. This one I’m ready to go forward with in a night. Love the admin section/tools. Great Job.

infortis

Hello,

Thank you very much, good luck with your project.

Love the theme and plan on purchasing it. Can you tell me what the updates policy/license is? In other words, will I have access to updates, and if so, for how long? Thanks!

infortis

Hello,

With ThemeForest regular licence you can use the theme on one domain or subdomain. After purchasing you can download all updates for that domain without any additional fee.

Any plans to include rich snippets to improve SEO quality of the theme? Thanks!

infortis

There are many SEO extension for Magento so we’re not planning to add this at this moment.

Nice. Will give it a try! sashatronics

have AJAX Add to Cart ?

Right now in demo I do not see it

infortis

Hello,
No, there is no such feature.

Hi,

Please tell me how to change the Call Us and Cart small icons in the header? Our header background color is very dark so the icons cannot be seen properly.

Aaron

infortis

Hi,

All images can be found in skin\frontend\ultimo\default\images, you can replace any image with your own. For some cmplex images (e.g. icons) there are PSD files supplied for easy customization.

Default-user

Can you please be more specific as I cannot find the file for the cart or phone icons…

infortis

Here’s the phone icon: skin\frontend\ultimo\default\images\img\ic-phone-gray.png

Cart icon is in the package of icons: skin\frontend\ultimo\default\images\img\pix.png. You can edit this package with supplied PSD file “Ultimo Theme 1.0.0\PSD files\pix.psd”

Hello,

How to add multiple custom blocks

infortis

Hi,

There’s only one “Custom Block” in the main menu.

Great theme! :)

infortis

Thank you very much.

Hi,

I noticed you have crosssell.phtml but can you please tell me how to activate this in the shopping cart so cross-sell items show?

Aaron

infortis

There is no special activation. It is default Magento feature. Simply add cross-sell products to any product you like, flush Magento cache, reindex the data and cross-sell will be displayed in the cart.

Hi guys,

On checkout I am getting an error saying auto-fill/auto-complete is disabled, how can we enable this? We want our NEW customers to be able to use their stored data from their browser to autocomplete name, address, etc…

Aaron

infortis

Hello,

For support requests please kindly use the contact form on our profile page on ThemeForest (http://themeforest.net/user/infortis). Thank you.

I’m sorry, but I’m not sure what you mean, there is no “auto-complete” feature in the checkout.

Hi, I’m the customer from Fortis theme… Now I’d like to purchase the Ultimo but I have some questions: - The gap (padding) between the rows (main slider, promo banners, featured and new product sliders) at the main page, is to much. Can we reduce the padding from css by ourselves? - Do you have the Sale Products slider for the main page (like the new products slider) - Can we make the category page sorter and pager in one row? (not in two rows different row for each) - Main page sliders are not sensitive (other themes are) when you slide slow it slides one product, when you slide faster it slides again one product. When you slide faster it has to jump two three productsleft or right…..

I’m waiting information about those detail things, sorry distrubing you. Regards, Savas

infortis

Hello,

All this can be done by simple changes in the CSS . In this theme you can enable (in the admin panel) custom CSS file which will override all the existing CSS . There is no slider for on-sale products but you can easily create a new category for those products and display that category in the slider (the same as in Fortis Theme).

Home page sliders will be improved in todays update.

On your demo you show 3 sample banners below the main banner on the homepage, I cannot find these in static blocks, can you please supply them with the padding and how I place them in the home page

infortis

Yes, we forgot to add this to the home page import. It will be added in the update today.

Default-user

How can i add it without messing up what I have already done/customised?

infortis

Please see an example in the FAQ .

When you will be up with the update with:
  • More variants of home page banners (more columns, multiple rows, banners in different sizes)
  • Additional color options

These are the features am waiting for. I want to save my energy and time so waiting for update. Kindly tell the approx time you gonna take

infortis

Please see the home page of the third demo: http://ultimo.infortis-themes.com/demo/select-demo/ You can import (with one click) a sample home page with the same banners that are displayed in our demo.

Default-user

Yes, Saw that
the demo shows the banner aligned in different height in same row
but I was asking that I want to align combination of banners in different height , see this picture http://i45.tinypic.com/1imsqp.png seems like going fluid will not allow this type of banners. the start and end row of banner remains same.

infortis

You can create nested banners like this, but the spaces between banners in different columns will not be the equal:

<div class="nested-container">

    <div class="page-banners clearer">
        <div class="grid12-4 banner">
            <a href="{{store direct_url=" about-magento-demo-store="" title="Replace this image with your own">
                <img src="{{media url=" wysiwyg="" alt="Sample banner" />
            </a>
        </div>
        <div class="grid12-8 banner">

            <div class="grid12-6 banner">
                <a href="{{store direct_url=" about-magento-demo-store="" title="Replace this image with your own">
                    <img src="{{media url=" wysiwyg="" alt="Sample banner" />

                    <img src="{{media url=" wysiwyg="" alt="Sample banner" />
                </a>
            </div>

                </a>
            </div>
            <div class="grid12-6 banner">
                <a href="{{store direct_url=" about-magento-demo-store="" title="Replace this image with your own">

Hi guys,

I’m trying to add some pixel conversion tracking code to the checkout success page but I cannot find it in the /app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/template/checkout/success.phtml

Can you help me find it please?

Aaron

infortis

Hello,

Not all default Magento templates were overridden in this theme. You can find your file in Magento “base” theme:

app/design/frontend/base/default/

You can copy it (and then edit it) to the Ultimo directory:

app/design/frontend/ultimo/default/template/checkout/success.phtml

infortis

But of course the best way for custom changes is to create custom sub-theme (more info in the user guide).

Hi again, great support guys.

The custom tabs, is there a way I can make these per product rather than site wide?

For example I’d like a FAQ /Q&A tab which will be slightly different for each product.

Aaron

infortis

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no such additional tab. 2 custom tabs are for static content (like shipping details, returns etc.). There already are 2 tabs individual for each product: description and additional information so we didn’t make another. But we’re planning to add another tab in the future.
