I would also like to know if there is a expected date for completion on an update for magento 1.9. It’s a great theme!


Thank you. We’ll try to finish all updates before June 16.

Kind regards

Hi there,

Can you tell me how to show MSRP on product pages so we can just update base price instead of having to use special price attribute to show discounts. The reason being we upload products via 3rd party inventory software and it is far quicker and easier for us to update the prices instead of attributes. At present MSRP only shows in additional info tab.

Thanks in advance


Please see the available settings under System > Configuration > Sales > Minimum Advertised Price You can enable it and the MSRP price will be displayed in the pop-up under the normal price (next to the Add To Cart button). This is Magento’s functionality not related to the theme, please refer to Magento documentation for more details.

Best regards

Hi there, thanks for the reply, Not sure if I was clear in my question but we are not looking to add minimum advertised price in magento as that is a hidden price. I thought MAP & MSRP were different things? We are already showing MSRP in our additional info tab without MAP enabled but would rather show it in a block nearer the product title (where price and special price are currently displayed).

It can be configured this way. I’m sorry but this is Magento’s functionality not related to the theme, please refer to Magento documentation for details, for example: . More references can be found in our user guide:

1. How do I center the image inside the home slider block’s? Much like in your demo4, where the image is in the center and expands with the widening of the browser screen?

2. Is there anyway I can change the height of the home slider block?

3. Is there anyway I can have this home slider block on additional pages that takes up the width of the screen? So far, the only implementation of this is for homepage only and configurable through system settings. Is there a code that I can use on any additional pages?


1. For full width slideshow you need to use bigger images (e.g. 1920px wide)

2. The height of the slideshow will adapt automatically to the height of your images. Please see option “Smooth Height” in the user guide: 11. Slideshow

3. It can be done with layout update XML. Add the following code in the Layout Update field of your page or category (it will work similarly to the slideshow shortcode):

<reference name="main_before_top">
    <block type="ultraslideshow/slideshow" name="myslideshow" template="infortis/ultraslideshow/slideshow.phtml">
        <action method="addSlides">

It will display the slideshow in the same place as on the home page. Replace block_slide1, block_slide2, block_slide3 with identifiers of your slides. You can of course add more slides if needed.

You can add this code to any CMS page: go to CMS > Pages, select a page and open the Design tab:

Design > Page Layout > Layout Update XML

You can also add it to any category: go to Catalog > Manage Categories, select a category and open the Custom Design tab:

Custom Design > Custom Layout Update

Best regards


Amazing theme!

Is there any way to set the product image to take up the entire width of the product page? All other columns can then be displayed under that .

Thank you.


We’re planning to add this as an option.

Kind regards

In demo4, the second link “fashion” is a drop down. How did you do it so the second link is a drop down? So far I’ve only been able to create a drop down with the block “block_header_nav_dropdown”..

Please either explain here or quote me to your user guide chapter that explains this concept. I can’t seem to find it on my own.


Custom content blocks can be easily added to each top-level category in the menu (even if category has no subcategories). This way you can create drop-down for any top-level category. Category blocks are described with details in the user guide: 13.2 Custom Category Blocks

Select a top-level category and add your content to Block Top. You will also need to enable this option: System > Configuration > Menu > Show Category Blocks if No Sub-categories

In order to see your changes you may also need to re-index Magento and clear the cache.

Kind regards

Can I show the “Brands Slider” on Side Bar of the HomePage , as opposed to Main Content ?

In Ultimo, its possible to show Brands on SideBar, is it also possible with Fortis ?



Yes, slider can be displayed in any static block. Slider will be displayed exactly where you put the slider shortcode.

You just need to set proper value of the breakpoints parameter. It controls the number of items in a row visible with a particular browser viewport width.


breakpoints="[0, 1]"

which means: always display 1 item in a row. It’s the best option for slider inside a narrow sidebar.

Kind regards

Based on what I see on firebug, I have the following div class and would like to know where I can edit it

I would like to remove hide-below-768 so that it shows on mobile also.

Where can I edit that? Its a static-block… Thanks.


You didn’t explain which block you meant. Please post a screenshot.

Kind regards

I’ve just upgraded magento to – I’ve started upgrading the theme but see is not yet supported, if I follow the 1.8.x upgrade procedure will this work?

Okay, after reading some more I see my best option at this moment is to just install as described for 1.8.x – I also read an upgrade for 1.9 would/should have been available last week. Is there a new indication when this upgrade will be available and are there any clear issues when performing the 1.8.x upgrade on a 1.9 installation?


Current version will work without problems on Magento 1.9.x

We’re now just preparing an update which will add a few small changes that were added in Magento 1.9.x Update should be available this week.

Kind regards

Or have magento 1.9 compatible version?


Please see the post above, we’re finishing the update.

Kind regards

it’s possible to Hide the Shopping Cart When it is Empty? thanks


There are no settings for this but it can be easily done with CSS because when cart is empty it has a class name “is-empty”.

Kind regards

Hi does this support arabic language? And what about the stylesheets? Because Arabic is RTL language.


You would need some minor customization to convert it to RTL. You can convert it the same way as any other website or theme, you can find tutorials on the web, e.g.

Create custom.css file and override all CSS selectors that need to have different direction in your RTL version. Go over the CSS selectors one by one and change the value (from right to left and vice-versa) of the following attributes: text-direction, float, clear.

So for example, to change the direction of the main menu items, add this to your custom.css:

#nav > li {
   float: right;

By default menu items float left:

#nav > li {
   float: left;

Kind regards

Sale pricing shows up on the product detail page, but not on the cart page or on step 5 of the checkout page? Really think customers want to see there discount compared to the regular price. How can I rectify this?



This is all Magento’s default not related to the theme.

Kind regards

I’m waiting for you to upgrade to 1.9, but meanwhile I have a question, is there a way for me to hire your team and get some changes done? In colors, etc…

no answer for my question?, not even a no?


Unfortunately we don’t offer customization services at the moment.

Few more features were added so that’s why there’s another delay with the update. We wanted to group all in one update to avoid releasing another update after a week or two. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind regards

please, how remove link / icon SIGN UP from top?

How i can enable Slide for any CMS Page


1. You can remove it with CSS:

#top-link-signup {
display: none;

2. Slideshows can be displayed on any CMS page, please see this chapter in the manual: 11. Slideshow (this feature was added in updates).

3. You just enabled two types of home link in menu settings.

Kind regards

1. How do I add additional custom “block_header_nav_dropdown” to the nav bar? I would like a total of three, right now there is only one that is under the identifier “custom.”

2. Is there anyway I can assign the “block header nav dropdown” to be put in the nav let’s say as a 3rd menu item and the first 2 being menu items #1 and #2 from the block “block_nav_links.” In your demo’s, you have the custom CMS aligned to the right. I have only found a way to do this with individual links in block_nav_links with the code

  • but not with the block header nav dropdown since the actual custom block and it's identifier becomes the actual link/drop down item in the nav.

    3. Where are the custom CMS blocks for the different types of nav dropdown boxes that you have on your demo4. Example: fashion, electronics tabs are two different blocks. Where can I find the different blocks that your theme offers?

    4. Where is the font for the main text on all the web-pages located? I have changed the font under configuration > theme design > Font, but that seems to change the font for everything but the main text for all the custom pages.

    5. What block type’s are available for the code {{block type=’(ex:catalog/product_list)’ – I want to change the appearance of how some pages will display my products.

    5a.—this is an example of what I want to appear under the product listing. I want to have the product listed for my customers on a custom page with the option to change the “color” and the “size”, but also to have the ability to present other information about my product above and below that listing. Is there anyway to present the product, have it be the final stage of the funnel before they add it to the cart, without it being exclusively a product page with no other information other than the one I am able to input into the “product category” part of Magento.

    6. Is there anyway to customize the dotted lines in “ “ to be straight lines? What part of Magento can I edit this in?

    Note: A simple reference for any of the questions to where any of the information can be found in your guide is fine.
    Thank you Fortis.
  • Hello,

    Sorry for the delay.

    1., 2. This will be possible after next update.

    3. These are just Category Blocks which can be added to categories, please see this chapter in the manual: 13.2 Custom Category Blocks

    4. Font of standard text is applied in CSS stylesheet styles.css

    5. This is Magento’s standard block so there are no additional types. Some additional . parameters can be found in 6.1.3.C Products grid

    5a. All options available for that part can be found in admin panel under Theme Settings > Category View (Grid Mode)

    6. When you want to make some non-standard design changes (for which you can’t find settings in theme admin panel), you can enable additional CSS file custom.css, in which you can override the default styles of the theme. For more details about theme customization please refer to the manual: 5.1.2 Override default CSS styles.

    Kind regards

    Hi, I’ve just created some custom links in the main menu using the static block “block_nav_links” as explained in the Fortis user guide. Unfortunately when I select one of these links the theme seems not to be able to enable the “active” tag. Is there a way to manage this issue?

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    Unfortunately Magento doesn’t add “active” class to static links inside static blocks.

    Kind regards


    Our social links in the footer area (block_footer_top2_left) seem to have a “dash” between them. I deleted the block and re-added it yet the dashes still seem to show up. I don’t see this on your demo sites for this theme. Is there any way to fix this?

    i can’t change logo size.


    Width of the logo is limited in CSS, otherwise it would overlap other elements. Please use Firebug in case you want to customize the CSS, search for this selector: .header .logo Current maximum of logo for page width of 1024px is 220px, and for wider pages it’s 350px. So you can change those limits or remove them completely

    Limits can be found in skin\frontend\fortis\default\css\styles.css and app\design\frontend\base\default\template\infortis\fortis\css\laouyt.phtml (after making changes in that second file you will need to re-save config in System > Configuration > Theme Layout to rebuilt stylesheets).

    You can for example replace all limits with width: 100%;

    Kind regards

    It can’t be expanded more, you would need to change the grid units of these two containers in the header template file: “logo-wrapper” and “user-menu”. Now it’s grid12-4 and grid12-8. Change it to grid12-6 and grid12-6.

    To check which template files you need to edit to customize specific sections of Magento, you can enable Magento’s “Template Path Hints”, it will display the names of template file of each block in the front-end. Please see this short video tutorial for more details:

    More details about theme/Magento customization can be found in the user guide: 5. Customization

    Could you tell me if there is a way to change the background color of the top static block that contains the the static blocks : block_header_top_left, block_header_top_left2, block_header_top_right and block_header_top_right2



    Yes, you can do it in admin panel in Theme Design > Header – Top.

    Best regards

    Is this theme compatible with version 1.9 of Magento?

    Also a few more features were added so that’s why there’s another delay with the update. We wanted to group all in one update to avoid releasing another update after a week or two. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Kind regards

    Thank you! I’ll be waiting for the update before launching my clients website in it’s full glory.

    One question, should I apply the 1.8 patch on 1.9? Or can I just leave it out?

    Yes, apply 1.8 patch on 1.9.
