thank you very much! one more question – on my site i’m using cyrillics and i changed fonts trhough Font Settings menu. with body font everithing is good, but heading fonts stay unchanged.(only cyrillics, latin is good) P.S> image preview while uploading still not available, even after changing server permission from 750 to 757

theAlThemist

Hello Maxeam,

you’re probably using a font which doesn’t support Cyrillic characters. You would need to choose another font which support Cyrillic characters, OR use the CUSTOM FONT option.

Hi Koev,

is possible add to theme option below?

In product list (catalog, featured, special etc.) show stock status (in stock, or default stock status). It would be interesting, especially if it will nicely arrange.

Then, i buy this nice and professional theme :)

Hello freddy87,

I am afraid I don’t have such plans. The layout doesn’t have enough space for new option which is also not a standard for product listings.

Hi, I have a few remarks I noticed:

Latestnews: I got and error that the latestnewstable did not exist.

Then added news but it was not saved. (but it did remove the table does not exist error). Tried it 5 times and every time it was not saved. Turned out that I had to fill in the Englisch tab aswell (I have two languages). And the englisch content is required. But there was no error message that I had to fill in the english tab!

Al the backend universum pages have as page title: Universum Latest News With the html code!

Also saw the filemanager error. Can you tell me what file I need to update so I don’t have to do a complete upgrade?

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello elphinstone,

If the english language is set as default language it’s required to be filled. I’ll check why the notification is not working. It works for me, but I’ll install another language to test it.

The missing database table error could only exist if you try to open the News page without the module installed and saved, which is obviously normal. :)

The html code is shown, because the title is colored. If you wish to remove it you would only need to edit the module language file.

For the filemanager you would only need to replace admin/controller/common/filemanager.php

However, if you’re using OC 1.5.5.1 there is a new update waiting for review with two more fixes – search page and sitemap link. It should be available in 1-2 hours.

For this update you would need to replace the following files:

catalog/controller/common/header.php catalog/controller/product/search.php

If you’re using the 1.5.4.1 you don’t need to update anything.

Default-user

Hi Koev, thank for your fast reply!

I did have the news module inistalled when the error occured!

Html code should be removed from the theme (all your the module titles). This way if I remove it it gets overwritten by every update.

I updated the filemanager!

Yes I am on 1.5.5.1. Let me know when the update is ready.

Thanks!

theAlThemist

The update is now available.

As for the HTML, you don’t need to update the language files, so you could do it once only. I would leave it as is, because for most of the users it’s more convenient to have the custom modules titles colored and more visible.

Default-user

Thanks Koev.

The html in the title makes the tab names unreadable. Have a look: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/443/htmlcodeintabname.png/

theAlThemist

I know exactly what you are talking about. As I said you could simply edit the language files if it is a serious problem for you. I would not change the theme files for now as it is more convenient to most of the users.

Default-user

Alright if you think so. For me with several tabs open would like to see by the tab name what page is open. - I changed the language files -

I found the update for search an sitemap. Thanks!

On the registration page the terms and conditions link opens in the same window… I just filled the complete registration form and cllicked on the terms&conditions and all my work (filling the reg form) was gone…

Should open as a popup preferably or else in a seperate window I think.

theAlThemist

I’ll check this now

theAlThemist

It works fine for me. Could you please give me a link you your store?

Default-user

Thanks Koev! You’re right, it is a typo in the dutch language file. Thanks for your help.

Hello Koev , nice template I am happy with your work , thanks . Do you think add some upgrade for mobile and tablets?; and how can I customize or modify the 3 types of “banner_header” ? Thanks again, JesusW

theAlThemist

Hello komprar,

I am not sure what do you mean? The theme is fully responsive and works perfect on phones and tablets.

The banners works just like every other banner module. You would need to create banner set in System>Design>Banners and then apply this set in an instance of the banner module with position in header.

Hi Koev thanks for your quick response; I appreciate your help; I mean that the zone between principal slider on header and welcome; titled class:banner (940×172) lifted with 3 pics (303×148) , I’m not sure how can apply the banner on that zone; Thanks again Koev.

theAlThemist

You would need to create banner set in System>Design>Banners and then apply this set in an instance of the banner module with position in header. Check the admin demo to see how it’s done

Hello, I am interested in this theme. I am starting a new OpenCart website instalation, and I was wondering if this theme has a Quickstart package that I can use to upload the theme and OpenCart at the same time with demo content. I prefer to start with a exact copy of your demo, and I can modify from there. I am afraid that if there is no package like this, that I may not be able to get everything working properly right away, which is what I need.

Please let me know, I will but this theme right away if there is a package for quick install with demo content and products just like your demo seen here: http://universumtheme.com/index.php?route=common/home
theAlThemist

Hello clindholm,

I am afraid what you need is not possible with OpenCart. It’s not like WP where you can import everything with a single click. The installation process is simple – just drarg 3 folders to your installation directory. For everything else there is a dosumentation with recommended settings.

About the update: What am I supposed to do? I see there is a different file structure in the admin common folder (and maybe in others as well). Do I have to delete the old folders and copy the new theme files to the root of my installation folder or should I only upload certain files?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

theAlThemist

Hello erspoelstra,

there is no difference! There are only small changes in already existing files.

The easiest way to update is just to drag the 3 folders to your installation folder again.

Alternatively, if you already made some changes to the tpl or css files and you don’t want to loose the changes, you could simply upload the changed files to their respective folders – that’s why I have them listed with full path, not only filename.

Hi there,

Is it possible to change the menu. So it loads instantly? instead of the fading etc.

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Yes, it can be done with a simple CSS change

  • Bought between 1 and 9 items

Koev, hope you can answer a few questions.

1. For discounted items, is there a toggle/switch to change the “Savings” from percentage (10%) to actual value ($35)?

2. Is there an option to disable the category images from displaying in the menu?

3. The footer Facebook box is ugly. Any way to make it like Shopcart theme?

theAlThemist

Hello securemanage,

1. No, it can’t show the actual value of savings and only work with percentages.

2. There are two types of menus – the mega menu with images and the default opencart menu style without image. Check the demo here – http://universumtheme.com/universum3/

3. Yes. I’ll revert it to the custom design today. Facebook changed their API last week and made custom styled like boxes unavailable, se I had to switch back to their default design, but now that they reverted it back, I am going to make it custom again.

hello. Bro have you any video about the instalation of templete and the configuration of admin???

thanks and Universum is fantastic.

theAlThemist

Hello alejandrozarzar,

no there are no videos, but the installation proces is pretty simple. There’s nothing to make wrong if you follow the instruction in theme documentaion.

Also I am working on improved documentation at the moment covering a lot more aspects of working with the theme.

Hi,

I have just installed your brilliant template on a fairly new install of OC… and am now getting this error.

Notice: Error: Table ‘opencart_c.category_path’ doesn’t exist Error No: 1146 SELECT COUNT AS total FROM category_path cp LEFT JOIN product_to_category p2c ON (cp.category_id = p2c.category_id) LEFT JOIN product p ON (p2c.product_id = p.product_id) LEFT JOIN product_description pd ON (p.product_id = pd.product_id) LEFT JOIN product_to_store p2s ON (p.product_id = p2s.product_id) WHERE pd.language_id = ‘1’ AND p.status = ‘1’ AND p.date_available <= NOW AND p2s.store_id = ‘0’ AND cp.path_id = ‘64’ in /var/www/vhosts/thefootballkitshop.com/httpdocs/system/database/mysql.php on line 49

I have since uninstalled VQMod (to see if that was causing the problem).

Any thoughts? Thanks, Tom

theAlThemist

Hello Tom,

could you please describe “fairly new install of OC”? :)

Default-user
tomslade Purchased

version 1.5.5.1 – with a few products added to the shop. No mods with a fresh install of VQMod. Admin works but front end doesn’t

theAlThemist

It sounds like there is something wrong with your installation. Which files your vqmod modify?

Default-user
tomslade Purchased

I don’t think vqmod modified anything… I installed vqmod. edited the index.php files in frontend and admin (all worked fine front and backend) then installed your template. I now have a non functioning frontend. I am fairly new to OpenCart so excuse my ignorance… but is there a way to overwrite all files with a fresh install but keep the database? I have backed up my database and media/uploaded files etc.

theAlThemist

You have edited index.php?? And why is that? It’s definitely a problem!

Yes, it is possible. Just reupload the original opencart files in admin and catalog folders and then re-upload the theme file.

Just make sure you don’t replace the config files. The safe procedure would be like this:

1. Go to your main installation directory 2. Open admin folder 3. Delete controller, language, model and view folders (make sure you don’t delete anything else) 4. Drag-and-drop the original opencart folders – controller, language, model and view to your server and make sure you ONLY upload those folders without the other original opencart files.

5. Do the same in catalog folder

6. Upload the theme files following the instructions from the theme documentation

That’s it.

And be careful – you must upload the files from the same OC version.

theAlThemist

Oh… and upload the original index.php!!!

Default-user
tomslade Purchased

Thanks for the info. I followed the instruction here… http://ocextensions.ritey.com/how-to-install-vqmod

theAlThemist

Well… may be you did something wrong then. It’s possible to break the whole site if you miss even a single comma. Revert your store to the default installation, apply the theme files and then try to install the vqmod manager again really carefully.

theAlThemist

Also it’s always better to follow the instructions that came with the specific vqmod version and not instructions from a third-party web site. ;)

Hi… me again. I have everything installed but none of the template adjustments I make in module theme options seem to take effect. Could there be a permissions issue somewhere? Cheers, Tom

theAlThemist

Did you enabled the module? There is a drop-down enabled/disabled on the bottom of the module page. ;)

Hi Koev, i have 2 questions (sorry my bad english :) )

1. is it possible to view the product description under the general info, (not in a different “description” tab)?

2. At the opencart default menu can I change the 1 or 2 column to 3 column such as Demo store2 – components because I have lots of main categories..?

Thanks!

theAlThemist

Hello Cyberslider76,

1. It’s possible, but some modifications would be required.

2. The default opencart menu gives you the opportunity to use as many columns as you wish for every single subcategory menu. It’s a built-in function in Admin>Catalog>Categories>Edit category>Data tab.

Hi Koev, good job! I really like your work.

How to insert 2 banner below slider? please see the picture below : http://oi47.tinypic.com/2uh2yxs.jpg

Thank you!

theAlThemist

Hello setjktfree,

Thank you for your kind words. You would need to create a banner set in System>Design>Banners and then apply this banner set in an instance of the banners module with position “Header”.

Great theme, Koev! I`ve been waiting and asking about the release but recieved no answer…That`s why I`ve ended up with cartmania :) I`ll have to consider another purchase I guess :) Anyway. I`ve checked the demo and I can tell for sure one thing – that theme will be best seller. Congrats! Regards, Boris
