Hello again. I have one question: How do I remove the sharebox in the news page. The sharebox that is on the left side?

theAlThemist

Hello pidde85,

you would need to open catalog/view/theme/UniVersum/template/information/LatestNews.tpl and delete (or comment) lines 31-42

Hi Koev,

Do you have an update of universum for opencart 1.5.6

my webshop is not looking good right now. I need help as soon as possible.

By the way great theme.

Thanks, Zyllva

theAlThemist

Hello Zyllva,

why are you using OC 1.5.6 with the theme as it’s clearly stated with bold letters that the theme would NOT be updated for 1.5.6 before the first stable bug fix release (probably 1.5.6.1). The current version (1.5.6) is full of bugs and code inconsistencies and even the internal OpenCart team core developers refuse to adapt their themes and extensions before the bug fix version is released.

Hi Koev,

Great! theme!.

Is it possible eliminate the module of Qty in the shopping car? I would like to use this theme for a store for books and PDF’s of art. and i don’t need this module. becouse the people buy the products only once and be able to download the file whenever they want like the method of themeforest.

thanks koev

theAlThemist

Hello artemanu.

yes, it is possible. It’s built like a module so it could be switched ON/OFF. You could even enable it on per module and page basis and have on some modules adn NOT have on others. It’s completely up to you.

Hello Koev. Is it okey if I remove captcha when new customers sign up or register while they are using chekout process? this is a little bit akward there is captcha on chekout process. What file should I edited? and what code should I replace. Thank you so much.

theAlThemist

Hello ariflukmanbdg,

This is a strong security improvement that I made for my themes and it’s highly NOT recommended to remove it. As you probably know OpenCart is vulnerable to spam bots using your store to send spam worldwide. If you don’t want your hosting account e-mails to be limited and your domain blacklisted -leave it as is. Otherwise, if you’re sure you know what you’re doing – let me know and I’ll give you instructions on how to remove it from the guest checkout.

Hi just getting round to upgrading but can find any info on best way to do this?

Is there a database update or just files for 8.06.2013 update?

Awaiting a timely response Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello infuzed,

there is no database update. Just the theme files need to re-uploaded to your server

This is a great template and works perfectly for my project. However, is there any way to have a view product image that will enlarge the image to full size image rather than the two view option supplied?

theAlThemist

hello wsteveb,

If I understand correctly – you could just use the ColorBox option and set the popup size in System>Settings>Image tab to the original images size.

Hello Koev,

Any plans to upgrade to OpenCart 1.5.6? Also can you please upgrade the CKEditor in the next release? Your theme site has much better CKEditor than the one distributed with the download.

Regards, Amit Parmar.

theAlThemist

Hello amitparmarindia,

not yet. At least not before 1.5.6.1 is released as the current version is full of bugs and problems. As for the CKEditor – the extended version is only available for OC 1.5.4.1 as they changed the version and plugins included with 1.5.5.1. For now it’s just not possible to use the extended version with newer versions of OC.

Hi Koev,

I hope all is going well. I am having a few issues with this theme that I hope you will be able to help me with.

1- on the home page the flexview slideshow is not being displayed. The screen shows blank and I confirmed that the size is correct. Also the style switcher is not working as well. 2- Also, whenever i go into the Universum Theme Options i lose my settings for the footer background. I’m using the default skin and setting the Footer background pattern to #34. If i go back into the Theme Options and save i lose the footer background settings. 3- I will send you an email with login credentials as well in case you need them

Have a great day

Hi Koev, did you have a chance to look at my email. As you know I have the spicylicious theme as well. Is there anyway I can use the Li Slider with Universum. When I try to use it the slideshow shows the banner images one below the other

theAlThemist

Hello Alex,

I was out of the city for few days. I am going to check my mail now.

Axisr77

Thanks Koev. I could use some help on getting this up ASAP. Also your latest theme Galka how does that differ then Universum. I have another project I have to do and wondering if I use another Universum license or go with Galka. You an answer via email as well if you would like. As you know I am a proud supporter of your work and would choose another theme of yours vs anything else

Axisr77

Koev, I also have another issue, that I just noticed. If you go to home page and highlight any of the feature products the Add to Cart, Compare, and Wishlist buttons are not working.

Axisr77

Hi Koev, any answers to the questions and email that I sent to you. I haven’t heard back from you yet

Axisr77

Koev, where are you??? I need help with theme and I want to go live with this project I am doing

theAlThemist

Hello Axisr77,

I have answered your mail two weeks ago. As for the buttons, it sounds like a JS conflict. Did you installed any new modules lately?

Axisr77

Hi Koev,

Where did you send replies back to? I checked my email account and I did not find anything. Can you please reply back via email with responses. I also sent you an email as well that you can reply back to.

As for JS conflict, I have updated a few modules. - Product Combo - Google Merchant - Super Category Menu

Axisr77

Hi Koev, Can you please reply back. I checked all my emails and I did not see where you answered my questions. I would like to finish this project and I can’t because of the flexview slideshow. Please advise and thanks in advance

theAlThemist

Hello Alex,

It looks like for some reason you’re not receiving my e-mails. As I already answered in the e-mail – your flex slideshow module is using a banner set with NO IMAGES assigned. Just check your System>Design>Banners>Flexview banner settings.

Axisr77

Wow, what a silly mistake on my part. Thanks Koev..

Hello I have a question, how do I decrease the height of the footer area container on the main page, once I remove the header and family links under “extra” and “Have a question” ?

I can send you a screenshot.

Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello Galaxy11,

the footer doesn’t have a height property assigned. It would automatically stretch to fit the content, so if you delete the columns it would adapt to the new content height.

Default-user

Hello Koev,

I tried to delete the information on the footer tpl, however when I delete the information under “have a question, I get a error. Can I send you a screenshot? I would appreciate any help with this – as to which code to delete in the footer file,, I’m looking to bring the footer payment icon and where you have the paypal banner upward. up to the two red banners ( no twitter, facebook, ect,,)

Hello I like the background image on the Universum theme slider with the lady and the banana. The image has a different shade background then the same image I saw on istockimages? First do you know where I can purchase this image and has it been modified, and do you know what size I need to purchase for the slider>?

Thanks

theAlThemist

Hello Galaxy11,

it’s a stock image purchased from photodune.net. You can find it here – http://photodune.net/item/banana-gangster/523537

Default-user

Thanks Koev I noticed the image has two gray shades, it look different, how is the information added to the right? however let me ask this question, what size image do I need to purchase for the slider to add my own lettering as in the demo to the right? I will replace the lady and add my own image.

Refine Search and Categories module Issue: Hello there, this theme is very well thought out and good looking theme, love it. However, there are two issues with it that is driving me crazy to find out the solution. The issues are on refine search module result pages and category quantity showing exactly double count. 1. The refine search will narrow searches somewhat well but when there is two or three.. etc pages with result, it will not hold the refine search request to the next pages, instead it will show all items in the category. Where/How can this issue be fixed? This is very important feature to my project narrowing down items to a specific needs.

2. The second issue I see is, the category module is showing exactly 2x quantity counts more than it should be. I looked my work thoroughly, I couldn’t find the solution for this.

Please help, after putting this much time and effort to the project fleeing from this theme is not an option. If I need to send you the project link to your email, please let me know.

Thank you..

theAlThemist

Hello clt2iso,

yes, I would need to see the problem live. Please send me an e-mail with your store URL and temporary admin access.

Default-user

How is the solution for these issues coming up? I sent the link and access, not hearing any response…

theAlThemist

Hello clt2iso,

I have checked your site but can’t really say what could be wrong. There is no such problem on my theme installations so it’s probably some extension that creates a conflict.

Default-user

Knowing the refine search module on this theme was made somewhat functional to open cart very recently with update, should I say all bugs were not completely tackled. This issue has something to do with “shopbypricefilter-pagination” and render(), in which I have a problem to see exactly where. The default theme had similar issue but not the same, I tried other themes and I didn’t see this problem at all. The good look of a theme is important so as its functionality. Stores with a lot of products needs to have this filtering correctly.

My question now, how can the url show the page number at the end after the filter number as &page=1,2,3..etc? Currently it is no show after filter.

".../index.php?route=product/category&path=25&filter=247"

must show as:

".../index.php?route=product/category&path=25&filter=247&page=1"

Also, how to make render() actually can do rendering?

theAlThemist

Hello clt2iso,

I have checked everything and it works fine on my end. However you could try using the non price filter version and see if it’s OK on your site. May be there is some other extension you’re using that creates conflict.

As for the render() – it’s just a name of a function. I can’t understand what do you expect it “render” actually?

Last but not least – using the product counts feature dramatically slows your store performance and if it’s not REALLY essential feature for your store, it’s highly recommended to disable it. I would even recommend you to use some of the free extensions that completely removes this feature.

More info: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=10956

Default-user

I finally figured out the issue after few days hair pulling. Although I must have the price filter feature, I did a complete new install to the non-price filter version, the same problem was there. With another new install with OC default there was NO problem. After a thorough comparison your category.tpl against the default, there were missing lines on your tpl that caused the problem.

True, the product count slows performance but I would like to have it; not sure why/how it doubles the count on the module, for now total_product/2 on the SQL fixed the problem. Disable the facebook and twitter from the calling scripts and the footer, the site will be super fast.

Another issue: If the customer decide to do filter from the Refine Search Module in the middle of a category viewing say…2,3,4th page of a category it will return empty page. Price filtering would work, however, the default refine module functionality was sacrificed. You must be always on the fist page of the category for the module to work, doesn’t make any sense. Again, this issue is on Non-price filter version too.

I appreciate if you look into it and reply sooner than a week.

theAlThemist

Hello clt2iso,

I’ll check what could be wrong. However it should work without any problems on the non-filter version. Give me few hours to investigate. I had some problems which are now solved and I wouldn’t disappear for days from now on.

Default-user

It has been days now, I wonder if this issue has been looked at and are there any solution to it….

Any user should be able to use the filter module at any point where ever the page they are and at any given point…. You can’t tell a user to be only on the FIRST PAGE in order to use the module correctly…. This is important !

Also why is it when you are on any categories page clicking 2nd page or next page it always load the next page staying at the bottom of the page where can you adjust the focus point, maybe to be on the first row of the product list?...............Again this issue is not on the default OC template

theAlThemist

Hello clt2iso,

I am working on the problem. However, as I already said, it wouldn’t be possible to use the price filter version. You would need to choose – AJAX filtering OR the built-in filter system. As for the loading at the bottom after clicking on pagination link, it is NOT loading at the bottom. In fact it is not loading the page at all as it’s an AJAX call and the content is just dinamically changed. That’s why the page stays at the position it was BEFORE you click the link.

Hello Koev,

I have issue with your megamenu. This issue can be done even on your demo site. Instructions: When user choose “Shop by brend” category in menu and – it expandes, user point mouse over it’s content. Then choose “Womens” category – it expandes, but when user point mouse over it’s content menu show content from previous category. It is very frustrating. Can you fix this?

Default-user

This glitch is under Chrome

theAlThemist

Hello icorvinus,

I have tested this and the only way to replicate what you described is when your cursor moves over the next menu item on the way to the subcontent, which is normal as it removes the hover state from the current menu item and adds it to the next one.

Default-user

No, it’s not about neighbor menu items. It’s appears when using items opposite to each other. How your theme defines the borders of the menu items? Do you have some kind of timer before submenu shows? How can I adjust it?

theAlThemist

Hello icorvinus,

there is e CSS delay for the fade animation. You could adjust the delay OR remove it from the CSS

Hello amjadowais,

it looks like not all files/folders of the theme are uploaded OR you’re using some Facebook related plugin/vqmod that conflicts with the FB comments on the news section.
