Hi – Is there a way to modify the size at which the Slider displays images? I have images I’d like to continue using which were created for the old Viroshop and their size is 950px X 325px but the new vesrion 2.6 is displaying an image area of 925px X 450. Can I change the slider display size to 925px X 325px ?

Thanks, Ian

PixelStores

Hi Ian,

You can change the image size for the slider in the theme_functions.php file in the includes folder, look for the following,

add_image_size( 'home-slider', 950, 450, true );

I would keep the same width “950px” as changing this may cause layout issues.

The new dimensions also need to be changed in the css file,

/viroshop/includes/sliders/nivoslider/nivo-slider.css

Change the height value here:

.home .nivoSlider {
    height: 450px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid #dadada;
}

Note after you have made the changes you would need to reupload the slider image for the effects to take place.

Cheers

Hey Matt, Emailed you! please reply asap!

Btw i had a suggestion, why don’t you start a simple forum with FAQs that would become a bit more easy, i suppose you might have answered the same question here many times.

and again if a user writes the same question in comment you can link him back to the topic, if you have made earlier as a response :)

just a suggestion though!!

Hi Milind,

I check the email now,

Yes a support forum is defiantly on the list of jobs to do, our second theme is in beta so hopefully after the launch, the support forum will come next.

Cheers bro :)

I’ve got my first order all thanks to you. I’ve mentioned that in email. You’re a rock-star, this is the first time I’ve bought a product and didn’t regret!! Thanks for all the help bro :)

hi! loving this theme so far, but having an issue with the background, i cant seem to control the repeat function, and any image I try and upload through the customizer thats larger than 900px just doesnt work.

I tried using the CSS you mentioned in an earlier comment, but I am simply not seeing any changes happen, could you advise me how to get this image http://ehsdev.momentumvisual.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/viroshop/images/EHSbkg.jpg as the background centered fixed at the top with no repeat?

2. I want to have it so that the categories make a really long page as apposed to the pagination of the products, our client wants to see every product on one categories page.

thanks!

PixelStores

Hi,

1. Did a bit of testing on my localhost and got the background image to work correctly.

Open up the style.css and look for the following:

http://pastie.org/7965075

Replace with…

http://pastie.org/7965055

That should do it.

2. In the WooCommerce > Settings > Catalog section in the WordPress admin there are a few options WooCommerce provides on how to display your products for the categories.

The Viroshop demo has set both, “Shop Page Display” and “Default Category Display” to show subcategories.

You may want to change the number of products to show for the shop in that case use thise code in the functins.php file,

add_filter( 'loop_shop_per_page', create_function( '$cols', 'return 12;' ), 20 );

This will return 12 products.

Hi I have used the nivo slider and added links to make the pics clickable. It works well on chrome and firefox, however on IE 10, the pics aren’t clickable.. Any ideas?

(http://www.hypo-mania.com/)

thanks a lot! Naama

PixelStores

Hi Naama,

Looks like some other NivoSlider users are experienceing the same problem for IE.

I haven’t tested this solution as i need to get hold of the pc with IE10 on from the missis but you can try making some changes to the slider stylesheet…

/viroshop/includes/sliders/nivoslider/nivo-slider.css
Look for,
.nivoSlider a.nivo-imageLink {
    position:absolute;
    top:0px;
    left:0px;
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    border:0;
    padding:0;
    margin:0;
    z-index:6;
    display:none;
}

and replace with…

.nivoSlider a.nivo-imageLink {
    position:absolute;
    top:0px;
    left:0px;
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    border:0;
    padding:0;
    margin:0;
    background-color:#fff; 
    filter:alpha(opacity=0); 
    -moz-opacity:0;
    -khtml-opacity: 0;
    opacity: 0;
    z-index:101;
    display:none;
}

Let me know how it works for you.

Kind Regards

is there set up documentation somewhere there was none in the downloaded files?

PixelStores

Hi Matthew,

When you have downloaded the zip file from ThemeForest unzip the archive and you will see the “Documentation” folder.

My Log in button under My Account say Log out. Yet in Themes > Menu > Page (it has Log in as its title)???

PixelStores

This is a page that is automatically created by WooCommerce it’s simply a Login/Logout url that you can use for your custom menus.

When you are logged in the button will display Logout.. visa versa.

Hi. How do I add fields to contact form?

PixelStores

Hi,

The contact form that is provided by Viroshop is quite a basic form and not really as customisable for some. I recommend downloading a contact form plugin such as Contact Form 7.

Hello ! I installed the theme on cheeseandco.fr and i have a lot of strange lines like on this page : http://cheeseandco.fr/?page_id=2 Warning: Illegal string offset ‘slider’ in /var/www/cheeseandco.fr/htdocs/wp-content/themes/viroshop/includes/theme_scripts.php on line 51

Can you check it and tell me how to fix it pls ? I can give you the admin & ftp details if needed :)

Hi There,

You receive this error due to Viroshop looking for a custom sidebar, try deleting and republishing the page.

If the problem persists please send me your WP admin details via the contact form on my profile.

Thx for your answer it did fix the problem. But i have a another one : http://cheeseandco.fr/produit/brie-de-meaux/ This is a product page but i can see how to had to “add to cart” ? :(
PixelStores

How is the product setup? I recommend importing the xml file in the Viroshop folder, this has some demo products you could work of. I believe its a matter of changing a few settings for the product to show the “Add to Cart” button.

Send me an email via my profile with your WordPress detail’s i’ll be happy to get you started.

I getting an issue with the responsive layout. When the site goes responsive and you add a product to cart the client can’t see the store and does not get any advice about his purchase or his added to cart. How I can solve this, i check you demo and it’s working perfect here my site http://kelem.com.mx

PixelStores

Hi,

Currently in responsive, your site goes to the shopping cart after the user has added a product to the cart, you can change this in the WooCommerce settings to show a message.

Your shop seems to be showing ok down my end. Could you be able to elaborate further in the issue your having?

2. When you upload your slides via the media upload after clicking “Set featured image” make sure you close the window rather than selecting a featured image, unless of course you want a static image.

I followed this making sure I did not click on the featured image link (didn’t want a static slider) it worked but now it’s pulled all the images from the media folder into the slider. How can I just select the ones I want?

Could you give me the steps to achieve this please, thanks  in advance? 8-)
PixelStores

Hi there,

Thankyou for purchasing Viroshop :)

What you should do is create a new page and title it “Home”, when you click the set featured image, drag only the slider images in the media, in this case one image file.

Don’t forget to set this as the static page. You could alternatively delete all the images that are showing currently in the slider permanently and then drag the one you want into the media, so your starting from fresh.

Let me know how this works for you, if the problem persists feel free to send your WP details to my email via my profile so i can help get you started.

Hi,

This happens due to not having a “Product Short Description” for the product, i recommend you have a description for SEO purposes but you can choose not to, the fix requires a little css in the style.css,

Look for the following:

.single-product .summary p.stock {
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
}

And replace with:

.woocommerce div.product form.cart {
    clear: both;
}

.single-product .summary p.stock {
    clear: both;
}

This should do it :)

Hi, How do I add images to the slider and The Slider to a Page?? I’m stuck!!!

PixelStores

Hi,

We have a fair number of frequently asked questions regarding the setup of Viroshop so this might be helpful…

1. For the slider to display on the homepage be sure to select the “Home” page as the “Static Page” in your reading options.

2. When you upload your slides via the media upload after clicking “Set featured image” make sure you close the window rather than selecting a featured image, unless of course you want a static image.

3. In the custom fields select “NivoSlider” in the select box.

4. Products can be displayed using the WooCommerce shortcodes. The homepage uses only the following shortcode to display the recent products.

[recent_products per_page="6" columns="3" orderby="date" order="desc"]

5. Featured products are displayed on the homepage, be sure to click the “star” icon next to your product where all your products are displayed in the admin.

6. In the documentation there is a section for setting up the homepage under the “Homepage” link in the navigation.

7. A sample.xml file can be found in the theme folder ready to import to get your site looking like the demo.

Heres a screen recording that may help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGZGqGImBnE

Hi Matt,

Got a slight problem again. Since the last upgrade to WooCommerce I’m now getting some strange behaviour on the wrap-bracelets.net site when you click Add to Cart on certain products.

Here are some screengrabs of the results in the cart: 1. Problem products – http://filehub.s3.amazonaws.com/ViroshopProblem.pdf 2. Expected Behaviour (with other products) – http://filehub.s3.amazonaws.com/ViroshopProblem2.pdf 3. Front page featured image differences – http://filehub.s3.amazonaws.com/viroshopproblem3.jpg

So the problem only seems to occur with the first 3 featured products on the front page of the site (and they also have broken thumbnail sizes – see 3.) , so there’s something wrong somewhere with those particular products?

It happens in both Chrome and Firefox.

Thanks.

PixelStores

Hi,

1. I see the first three products show a large image in the shopping cart which is unusual, could you be able to publish a new product for testing purposes with the same image and see if the image is large in the shopping cart?

If the image display correctly for the new product in the cart, what you should do is edit the products that have the cart issue and remove the featured image, when you remove the featured image in the dialogue, reupload a new photo for that product, (do not select the photo in the media). I believe you may need to regenerate your product photos for those products.

2. When you publish a product Viroshop resizes the product photos to 440×328px by the looks of it the site doesn’t recognise this, try deactivating and reactivating the theme and head over to the permalinks to fix any “Not found” messages. After, publish a new product and see if the sizes are correct by locating to the image from the homepage. A good product size to be in the safe zone is around 643W x 500H.

Let me know how this works, send me an email if the problem persists.

Look for the Catalogue section and make sure you have both the Price Tags and Product Summary checked.

(i try with an english version and in this case there is the circle with “SALE!”

My question is how can i withdraw this SALE or PROMO, tks

PixelStores

Hi,

You can change the text of the sale flash by using the woocommerce templates.

Download the .zip here and put the woocommerce folder in the viroshop theme folder.

Locate to the sale-flash.php file in the woocommerce/loop folder and change the content that is required.

Has anyone else had trouble with WordPress 3.5.2? I am now locked out of my admin page and can’t get to Viroshop on the dashboard. If I do a search online this is the message ” A description for this result is not available because of this site’s robots.txt – learn more. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/156449?hl=en

Does anyone know why this has happened and how I can bypass it so that I can get to my Viroshop Wordpress Dashboard? Ta

PixelStores

Hi,

Looked for some research on this but can’t find a definite solution but came up with a few possible ideas…

Look for your robots.txt file via FTP and use the following, if it doesn’t exist create one.

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/

Sign up to google Webmaster Tools and test the robots.txt file, more info on this on the url you provided.

Unfortuanltly there is not a lot of info on this subject in matter via a google search but apparently it may take some time to google to re crawl your site..

Hi, I am using wp 3.5.2. I am using Viroshop and its awesome. But the issue is that I cant add any slider to homepage. Like its there on top of the header in ur demo Viroshop. Please help me in adding slides. I was using nivoslider. Please help as soon as possible.. Plss.. Thanks..

PixelStores

Hi,

By the sounds of it your almost there. Lcate to your homepage and “Edit” this page.

Locate and click the “Set featured image” link. rather than selecting an image from your Media Library, drag the slides from your desktop to the Modal Window. This screencast may help you.
