Great Theme, unlike all the others here which are super slow and hard to modify to make it suitable for todays technology.

5 stars from me

You should add the Mega menu like the PoliShop, Please

Hi, Thanks for purchasing our theme. I will some added new feature in big shop. but take time. I will try for completed as soon as possible. Thanks.

I’m still having issues with “Bigshop Theme Custom Options” module not existing and am unable to customize my store. I’ve emailed twice about this and have not gotten an answer about how to fix it. I even included a picture showing the problem. It’s in your demo admin but in my admin it doesn’t exists. It goes straight from “Bestsellers” to “Carousel” in the modules list. Please let me know how to fix this.

Thank You

Hi, I have sending you email reply. Thanks

Thanks for fixing the problem cause I was completely in the dark as my FTP didn’t seem to allow me to follow steps properly. Great looking site and I’m now looking forward to getting to the business end of things.

Thanks again

Hello Harnish, Thanks for your great theme Big Shop as I am using it quite successfully. However there is one thing to be sorted out. The price tag. I am using plug-in for dynamic changeing the price on dropdown menu. However Bigshop price tag stays as it is and only other tag appears on the upper side where the price changed according to dropdown options. Can you you check my website and possibly fix it, so price can be changed on your main tag (not the upper). Please see the page sample http://k-tuning.com/en/maker/kia/k3/i44757.html

I hope you understand what I mean and help me to sort it out.

Thank you so much. P.S. The similar question was asked by pennywilerra just a little earlier. This is very very important for us.

Hi, I have sending you email reply. Thanks.

This is not Opencart side, but BidShop theme side issue, because it works fine in default Opencart theme. This function is absolutely must, because buyer confused when adding option to product with extra cost, but price stays the same. They think the price is like in your big orange box, and the go checkout and see price is bigger and after that they cancel buying product. You get what I mean?. Therefore I highly recommend you to reconsider it and try to make it work in BigShop. I spend i year to select the most appropriate theme for my needs and tried mant themes spent a lot of money, then found your Big Shop, which is absolutely fine for all my needs and really good for 90% of plugins so I like it. Please think it over, since this function seems to be very important for most users. Thank you!

Hi, I have sending you email reply. Thanks.

Amazing theme, just purchased it yesterday. If we can solve the following problems I have, then I will rate it with five stars :)

1. How should I proceed if I want to change the words “Login In”, “Create An Account” to something else? I use an swedish translation, but it is unfortnately not translated correctly :)

2. How to replace “Categories” -> “Kategorier” in left column menu?

3. Is there a way to mass-disable shipping countries? It seems I can just do one by one, and because its alot of countries it will take a long time. I just want my products to be shipped within scandinavian countries.

4. Is there a way to make the mobile-version of the website to the “normal” desktop-look? I like the desktop-look more.

Else than that it is a GREAT template. Thanks alot! You can reach me on robvik@hotmail.com :) I will buy more thing from you in the future!

2. How to replace the name “Categories” with “Kategorier”* //Thanks

Hi, I have sending you email. Thanks.

Hello, I’m looking for some help with bigshop. I am running open cart 1.5.5 at the moment and after I installed the template I am getting a header error

“Notice: Undefined variable: filter_name in /homepages/33/d294740041/htdocs/tb/catalog/view/theme/bigshop/template/common/header.tpl on line 202”

I am not sure how to fix this, and I would really like to use this theme to its full potential. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you!

Sorry for the double post but I think I fixed it. Just took a little digging. Thank you!

hi harnishdesign, have gone through your site and from my research many people made mention of your theme that is for e-shop. 1. what order plugins would i need if am to build e-shop for my mum. 2. in the currency settings of your theme is Nigeria currency (Naira ?)included because other theme that i used my country currency wasnt included. 3. am new to web design hope there is full support on your product for dummie like me?

And i believe your theme in wordpress compatible.

thank you.

Hi. I’ve created some custom responsive content for the homepage for a shop using this theme but the header of the theme is giving all sorts of problems and doesn’t seem to be responsive in any kind of way at all. After resizing the page down below a certain amount the entire page just disappears. Any idea what could be causing this? Trying to work with the css to get the theme to work properly is difficult to say the least. My shop is at www.giftemporium.ie. I’d appreciate if you could look at it and say why you think the theme doesn’t work.

Hi, please send me email & send me Site FTP details = ? details so I will check & solved. Thanks.

I appear to have solved it. Thanks for your offer of help anyway.

For people’s information, if you use a vqmod or some other code to program a body class it will interfere with the working of the template and make it disappear below a certain size. Use a body id tag instead if you have to. Otherwise the template is great.
