Hello Keov, I uploaded the theme in a Plesk/CentoS 6.3 and CSS doesn’t load. I get an error: (13)Permission denied: /var/www/..../catalog/view/theme/Universum/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable, referer: http://.......

theAlThemist

The php info wouldn’t help here I am afraid. It’s pretty clear that the problem is with your htaccess file. Do you have the SEO URL feature enabled?

Hello, with featured in front frontage (top) and in product info (column), I get these errors: “Notice: Undefined variable: setting in /home/.../catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/module/featured.tpl on line 12 Notice: Undefined variable: setting in /home/.../catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/module/featured.tpl on line 12” “Notice: Undefined index: startdate in /home/.../catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/module/featured.tpl on line 105”. Best regards

theAlThemist

Hello ptitgars,

it sounds like you didn’t underloaded all theme files accordint to the documentation instructions. At least some custom controllers are not there.

Hi Koev,

Need urgent help. The site is live now with the theme. The problem is that clicking on some of the categories displays first page products only. That is – if I set the catalog products to 9 then the category shows only 9 products, if I set it to 15 then 15 products are displayed. Whereas, some of the categories are working fine.

Regards,

theAlThemist

Hello ngaloriginals,

did you made any changes on the category.tpl or category controller files? IT looks like the price filter is not working properly and that’s causing the problems.

Default-user

Thanks Koev, its resolved now. Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi. does the theme support RTL layout , and is it possible to advise instructions to change direction to RTL ?

Thanks

theAlThemist

I am afraid not. I don’t speak any RTL language, so I just couldn’t do it.

Default-user

does change the theme direction require somebody to speak RTL language /I thought it is technical issue could be done in css file , right ?

theAlThemist

Yes, it is a CSS work and Yes, it does require to speak RTL language if you wan to do it right and be sure everything is OK.

Ive got really big problem with a filter module I have purchased the only solution to combine my theme with that module is to remove price filter, is there anyway to remave that at all? Thnx in advanced

theAlThemist

Hello deboniar86,

I am afraid it’s not possible. It’s not a module – it’s built into the theme code and can’t be removed. It’s not really impossible, but that would take approx. 2 days and some serious PHP skills would be required to modify the product model, category controller and category.tpl It can’t be just reverted to the default. Why don’t you just use the new built-in filter system available in the latest OpenCart version?

BTW, the update is now available for download. You can replace the files for the accordion and the news module with fixed non-latin characters encoding.

Default-user

Ok Ill try to stay as it is now, as for the updates all have been fixed… suddenly one day the facebook app again has been changed, Ive seen and in your demo site that has changed, we have to fix it, any idea???? :)

Hi. Please help. What template or file i need to correct to link google cyrillic fonts? i know that ubuntu condensed supports cyrillic and i need to enable it. am i wrong?

theAlThemist

Hello digorev,

you would only need to use the custom font feature of the theme. Don’t need to change templates or any code

Hi, 1. I am trying to place the product-accordion beneath th header but the only position I can choose is ‘Header’. Is there a way to add more positions?

2. Also I would like the accordion to set a width so that there is room for 1 block next to it.

3. Also the height of the accordion module is way to high. I think that is set by a script but can i overrule it?

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello elphinstone,

I am afraid the header is the only available position for that module and it would always take the full width available. The height is set by CSS and it’s optimized to ensure the correct behavior on different screen sizes. If you decide to make changes on this you would need to do it on your own risk.

I have just baught, and installed this theame (ver 1.5.4.1) but I can not progress with the shop front as when i do i get the following error: Fatal error: Call to undefined method Document::getFBMetas() in /home/haswwco/public_html/ws/catalog/controller/common/header.php on line 17

theAlThemist

Hello ukjrobinson,

it sounds like you didn’t uploaded the system folder when installing the theme.

Please update your themes header.tpl to conduct full path includes, the current method causes failures when vQmod makes changes to the header.tpl.

.. this is the proper way to do it :

<div id="menu"> <?php $menuType = $this->config->get('UniversumControl_menu'); if(($this->config->get('UniversumControl_menu') != null) && ($this->config->get('UniversumControl_status') == '1')) { include(DIR_TEMPLATE . $this->config->get('config_template') . '/template/common/' . $menuType); } else { include(DIR_TEMPLATE . $this->config->get('config_template') . '/template/common/OpencartDefault_menu.php'); } ?> <div class="clear" /> </div>
theAlThemist

Hello Tcalp,

thank you for your feedback. There is a reason for the way it’s made and when vqmod is used, there is a really easy fix for the possible problems.

However, It’s feels “strange” to receive advices on code from someone who don’t even have a buyer’s badge for the theme.

Default-user

I’m a top extension author for @OpenCart and don’t own your theme. A ‘simple fix’ shouldn’t be required, it should work out of the box.

theAlThemist

Don’t get me wrong, but being a top extension author for OpenCart doesn’t change the fact that you have access to the theme without purchasing it, so I don’t see any reason to discuss what should and what shouldn’t be required. As I said it was made on purpose and that’s my decision which I don’t have plans to change as the theme is 100% usable even that way.

Dear Developer,

I have a problem with special price. For example : - if the normal price is 1040 and the special price is 806 will be an error saying that I save -77341.9% - if the normal price is 1040 and the special price is 807 will show me correctly saying that I save 22.4%

Please advise on this!

Can the “Shop By Price” be removed?

theAlThemist

Hello craigblues,

I am afraid no. It’s not a module, but built into the code feature and can’t be removed.

Hello!

I would like to double the size of the facebook like box in the footer and remove the twitter. How can i achive that?

Best Regards László

theAlThemist

Hello László,

you would need to edit the footer.tpl of the theme.

First you would need to delete the column containing the code for the twitter feed and than you must change the class for the column containing the facebook like box from one_fourth to one_half. Also you would need to adjust the likebox iframe size to the new container

Hi again!

I have another question.

How can i place banners on the flex slideshow as you did in the demo? And to the bottom?

Best Regards László

theAlThemist

Hello László,

they are not placed inside the slideshow. These are just standard banners activated with position in Header. They would only look like this if enabled with the Flex slideshow in header area. Otherwise they would look like the banners on the bottom of the home page. Check the theme demo admin and see how are things organized.

Thanks your answers. Universum Pro is the best OpenCart template! ;)

thank you .

theAlThemist

Hello 3rbshops,

You would only need to re-download the theme and upload the new files. I have changed the way those elements are loaded into the template. Alternatively, you could manually copy 4 files to your vqmod/vqcache folder:

catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/common/OpencartDefault_menu.php

catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/common/Universum_menu.php

catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/product/zoom.php

and

catalog/view/theme/Universum/template/product/colorbox.php

Hello Koev. Master question for you…

Is possible can not put a price on a product and just leave a description … example, if I want to list only restaurants, but not your dishes…. http://www.ladytown.cl/index.php?route=product/product&path=100_105&product_id=61 ???? I have the template in mode catalog, but show the restaurants with price (it ís shop and not catalog)

theAlThemist

Hello alejandrozarzar,

you would only need to leave the price field empty.

Default-user

Yes, but appears $0, and I try not appear, not price. (number 1) I don´t know…

Friend. sorry for the inconvenience, I have other question,

number 2. I know it is possible to choose the 9 featured products of Index (home), the question is, I can choose others for “special offers” option in the main menu ….. I’m thinking of selling these nine products as advertising and distinguish them others who are also in promotion…..???

Example…. I have 50 products with discount in the web, but only sell advertising for the 9 products in the index… How do I show the other 47 products?

theAlThemist

Hello alejandrozarzar,

if you don’t have prices for your products it shouldn’t have $0 but no price at all.
