Great looking theme indeed, wanting to test it but something must be wrong, can't display the girl image above the slider, also in the theme's directory there is no props directory as specified in the PDF instructions. What am I doing wrong ?

Hi,
Thanks for the great theme! I've been setting it up and it really is nice.

Now I really hope I didn't break it by upgrading to the new image system of pretashop 1.4.3!!!

I'm having a problem with the 'new-product / featured product' combo module however. It seems to be looking for the images in the 'old' organization system.
Product TEST

The rest of the site works fine, it really is only this combo module, which still looks at the old location. I tried turning the compatibility for old image system 'on', no success. This also happens for new product that I create now. Any idea what could be wrong?

Thanks so much!
Dave

Hi Rhobur,

If you want to change the image slider, you can click the modules, then search slideric module and click the configure to change the image. Or you can see the tutorial video here:



Good luck :)

Hi,
Thanks so much for the fast reply. I tried the change you mentioned with no luck. I then re-moved all images to new system, regenerated thumbnails, forced prestashop to compile with no cache, still no luck.

If I look at the link that the comboslider is trying to grab the image, I still see the old style paths. Could this come from somewhere else in the block?

Hopefully this is also useful for others who switched to the new image system...

Thanks!

Hi DapurPixel,
I had 2 problems with PS 1.4.3 and I`ve solved them.
1st: comboslider and problem exactly the same as Gretzteam, Your code:



didn`t worked for me, I have use this one:

getImageLink($product.link_rewrite, $product.id_image, 'home')}" alt="{$product.legend|escape:'htmlall':'UTF-8'}" {if isset($homeSize)} width="{$homeSize.width}" height="{$homeSize.height}"{/if} />


and it is ok now.

2nd: The Slideric - JQuery Nivo Slider, this one uploaded with Your theme didn`t work for me, I had to download this module directly from developer: http://www.prestashopic.com/eshop/23-nivo-jquery-slider-prestashop-module.html
and it worked!

Hi Kubbos,
I tried your code with no luck again. Are you sure there isn't a cut/paste error? It seems to be missing some '' right before getImageLink, but then again I really don't know .tpl language. I tried various modifications but still can't get it to work!

It's weird that the JQuery block worked fine for me. Had to upload images separatly since they were not included, but this one worked right away.

Thanks for the help!

I think this is a setting in the BO in preference/products

Display "add to cart" button when product has attributes: Yes/No

Set this to Yes and you'll always get the add to cart button.

I had that too.
It's because some of your products have a name that overlap on two lines. I don't know why it has such an effect, but try changing the long names and it will fix it.
I managed to add more space for the product name in a .css somewhere. I honestly can't remember which, but simply made the height larger, so that every product name uses two lines. If it's a short name, you just get more 'yellow' space before the price.

Hello,

The problem happens because you have longer product name on 3rd column and it will push some products below it. To fix the problem open /themes/velvetsky/css/product_list.css file

Go to line 16 or find the code below:

ul#product_list li {
   float: left;
   height: auto;
   margin: 10px;
   min-height: 260px;
   text-align: center;
   width: 155px;
}



then adjust the min-height value (e.g. 280px)

Hope it works :)

Hi Linda,

Did you mean that you just unhook all modules for this theme? Because if you did it, then you can easily transplant it again. You can read how to rearrange modules position in Installation Guide on Page 5.

Hi

i have a issue with this great theme. When logged in the Cart and the username is moved down and also pushes the top menu down. I am unable to resolve this issue myself, anyone else have a solution?

Please see attached picture

B.R

I managed to fix it by shortening down the "welcome" phrase. In Swedish Welcome has 2 extra letters, it seems that those extra letters caused the problem....

I am also having problems with the Combo Slider on the homepage v1.0 by DapurPixel. I also am using PrestaShop™ 1.4.3. I have tried all the changes suggested in this forum, and I have used Safari and Firefox to view the website and the images for the combo slider do not appear - only the question marks.

Now when I check the Source Code - it gives the image name/location as: img/p/9904904-4709-large.jpg

which actually doesn't exist. The image showing is actually: "img/404.gif" (the question mark) The image that I think should be showing is: "img/p/4/7/0/9/4709-large.jpg"

So what I'm wondering is: how does the program parse the link to arrive at the correct image. Where did the 99044904 come from - what does it mean? Why isn't it pointing to an image?

Please help! We cannot use this template without solving this issue. And that would be SAD! I love this template!

Thanks!
Lynnette


PS - if I completely delete the "....img src=..." line in the code (in featured-list.tpl) - there is no change in the appearance of the combo slider on the webpage... Just in case this information helps.

PPS - If no image is uploaded for the product - an image with the words "No Image Available" appears. Otherwise it's just the Question mark image.

perhaps the language used words too long so that the css does not support the selected language. please search the word more simply. Thank you: D

Great design and choice of modules, but I am going a bit crazy with one of the modules. Everything is fine and dandy except of the Nivo JQuery slider. Nothing appears on the website or on the configure mode in the Back office. The only thing that is showing in the Configure mode is the Save button.

Could anyone tell me what the problem is? I may be able to resolve it myself, but I don't know where the problem is.

All the best,

p((. Thanks for the video! So I followed it very closely and still nothing. Here's a question: When I set the Performance to FORCE COMPILE = YES and CACHE = NO, my site totally didn't show up - only a list of categories. So after refreshing the page I reset FORCE COMPILE to NO and CACHE to YES, and refreshed again and saw that nothing had changed. Is this preventing the changes you recommend to take effect? Do you know why this would be happening?

Thanks a ton! - Lynnette

Here are two screen shots of the Velvet Sky Template - our shop that we are building (Bosom Buddies) and your example. On your example I can see the Newsletter Block. I can't get mine to show the newsletter block. How did you do that?

Also on your example there is a FACEBOOK link in the Footer. I also can't find a place in the module where I can enable this button. Can you help?

Thanks!
Lynnette



July 12 -----------------------------
The file blockcms.tpl in our store's website was incomplete and now I can see the facebook/twitter images. Don't know why - but just in case anyone else has this problem - that is something to check.


Still haven't solved the NEWSLETTER BLOCK. But I will.

Thanks!




July 15 ---------------

So the problem here was that we couldn't "Hook"(Transplant) the Newsletter
Block into the Homepage Content, where the Advertising Block and the COmboSlider are.


We did not have the correct NEWSLETTER block Module installed on our site. That is - we did not have the version that came with Velvet Sky.

After copying over the NEWSLETTER block module from the Velvet Sky Theme to our store's files, we were able to do what we needed to do to show the Newsletter block.

Hi Again!

The other difficulty I am having is that I cannot get the buttons on the Product Pages to line up. Here are two images and one shows your example of a product page and the ADD TO CART button and the MY WISHLIST buttons are lined up neatly. The other shows a screen shot from our store's product pages and I cannot get the buttons to line up neatly!

Any suggestions?

Thanks Again!

Read the pdf instructions (page 5) enclosed in the file:

"ATTENTION
All uploaded images will be stored in /modules/slideric folder and automatically renamed as en0.jpg, en1.jpg, en2.jpg and en3.jpg respectively.
Two letters (en) in front of each numbers is the language ISO code. If you install other languages, then you need to copy the images and enlinks.xml
and rename it with the appropriate ISO code."

Hello DapurPixel
I can post this message because I have a bug following the installation of your theme, I'm prestashop 1.4.0.17 (this is the image attached) and I'm local for now

Yet I followed your manual.

Could you send me a picture in full detail what to adjust in back office at the position of the modules.

Otherwise what is my mistake
hoping you will answer my request
I love this theme it would be a shame I did not serve

P.s: Sorry for my bad English, I am only French ;)

Thanks Paul & Evona've tried themes velvetsky, we already try to install nivo slider in prestashop 1.4.3 was already ok in the admin back. Maybe you can try fresh install and then check what is still prestashop error or not. If there is still a problem please let back on. Good luck :D

PS - if I completely delete the "....img src=..." line in the code (in featured-list.tpl) - there is no change in the appearance of the combo slider on the webpage... Just in case this information helps.

PPS - If no image is uploaded for the product - an image with the words "No Image Available" appears. Otherwise it's just the Question mark image.


please see the following video, you can use the module "combo slider" in prestashop 1.4.3 Good luck. : D



p((. Thanks for the video! So I followed it very closely and still nothing. Here's a question: When I set the Performance to FORCE COMPILE = YES and CACHE = NO, my site totally didn't show up - only a list of categories. So after refreshing the page I reset FORCE COMPILE to NO and CACHE to YES, and refreshed again and saw that nothing had changed. Is this preventing the changes you recommend to take effect? Do you know why this would be happening?

Thanks a ton! - Lynnette



Yes FORCE COMPILE it clear the cache when we do edit the file extension *. tpl. Try you can see the installation video below.
:D

Here are two screen shots of the Velvet Sky Template - our shop that we are building (Bosom Buddies) and your example. On your example I can see the Newsletter Block. I can't get mine to show the newsletter block. How did you do that?

Also on your example there is a FACEBOOK link in the Footer. I also can't find a place in the module where I can enable this button. Can you help?

Thanks!
Lynnette



July 12 -----------------------------
The file blockcms.tpl in our store's website was incomplete and now I can see the facebook/twitter images. Don't know why - but just in case anyone else has this problem - that is something to check.


Still haven't solved the NEWSLETTER BLOCK. But I will.

Thanks!



To block Newsletter module Uninstall then please do the install again will probably give a different effect. Yes to facebook / twitter it exists in the module block that must be edited cms blockcms.tpl file. thanks

Hi Again!

The other difficulty I am having is that I cannot get the buttons on the Product Pages to line up. Here are two images and one shows your example of a product page and the ADD TO CART button and the MY WISHLIST buttons are lined up neatly. The other shows a screen shot from our store's product pages and I cannot get the buttons to line up neatly!

Any suggestions?

Thanks Again!
Lynnette

Hello DapurPixel
I can post this message because I have a bug following the installation of your theme, I'm prestashop 1.4.0.17 (this is the image attached) and I'm local for now

Yet I followed your manual.

Could you send me a picture in full detail what to adjust in back office at the position of the modules.

Otherwise what is my mistake
hoping you will answer my request
I love this theme it would be a shame I did not serve

P.s: Sorry for my bad English, I am only French ;)

cordially


Maury sorry we missed your reply to the problem, maybe you could try to install the appropriate version 1.4.2.5 prestashop released, if no significant problems velvetsky themes prestashop not compatible with earlier versions because we have not had time to check. Good luck. thanks

Read the pdf instructions (page 5) enclosed in the file:

“ATTENTION
All uploaded images will be stored in /modules/slideric folder and automatically renamed as en0.jpg, en1.jpg, en2.jpg and en3.jpg respectively.
Two letters (en) in front of each numbers is the language ISO code. If you install other languages, then you need to copy the images and enlinks.xml
and rename it with the appropriate ISO code.”

Hello DapurPixel
I did a fresh install of 1.4.3 prestashop
I encounter this problem again I told you in message # 55
I also followed your installation video of the theme Velvet Sky and recreate an installation 1.4.3> same incident

Besides, if I may allow you indicate at the end of your video
to eliminate the position of the module category in the block of the left column, or on your installation file provided in your chart, it is advisable to keep
Is this a mistake? or I misunderstood because I am not strong in the language of Shakespeare.

We hope you will be able to help me

LOVE this theme - great installation guides and videos - this is the clearest and most comprehensive "how-to" for a free theme that I've seen so far. It's all looking really good, but I have a few problems:

1. Unfortunately even after following all the instructions, I still don't get any pictures in the comboslider. I have changed the featured-list.tpl as instructed: mine reads


I'm using 1.4.3.
I have moved all my images to the new system to see if that would help, then also regenerated the thumbnails - still no images there.

2. The drop-down menu gets covered over by the NivoSlider (subcategories). I'm sure there's an easy fix but I've already messed up my site several times and had to start from scratch, so I want to be sure I'm altering the right code.

3. I don't know how to add the code for the facebook and twitter buttons. I'm kind of new to both....

Any help you could give me would be really appreciated.

July 20 - fixed the facebook/twitter problem - just edited the footer.tpl file with the links.

Thanks for the theme - nice work.

One thing I noticed was in Chrome browser some of the links at the top of the page are out of alignment.

See attached images. For IE everything is aligned ok and the bookmark link is there, however see the chrome image the contact/sitemap links are 1 pixel higher than the rest, and the bookmark link does not appear - it looks like the box is cut short.

Hi,

first thanks for the great theme. I have some problems and I don’t know if it’s the theme or my fault. I am very new in Prestashop so it will be just an adjustment in the Backend. OK, my problem:

I used the menu with categories and subcategories. eg.: shop-cat1-subcat2, When having a product in subcat2 I want this visible when clicking shop and cat1. I used the checkbox for the product but the product is just listed in cat1 and subcat2 but shop has 0 products. Instead of listing the product I have a second row on my home site within the comboslider.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot

I've had lots of fun changing some of the colours, but I have 1 small problemsin addition to those noted earlier (post 75).

I changed the banner to a graphic with transparency and needed to move the margin of the page div up as I wanted to have the banner look like it lays on top of the page but under the breadcrumbs. Now in IE the banner is "behind" the page. Works fine in FF (see screenshots)

I had to disable Nivo Slider because of the menu problems noted in my last post, but I'd like to get it back. Does anyone have a solution? Any other insights on the comboslider issue?

Hello all,

I have just installed this great template but have also found problems with the display of the book mark and currency block modules on the top of pages. I have the module installed, it is exactly how it should be in the position section but the currencies are not showing at all and as someone mentioned above post #77 the book mark in google chrome is not showing too.

Does anyone have a fix and an idea as to why the currencies block is not showing??


OK. i now have the currency block appearing but it displays strangely and overlaps the header? any ideas how to fix it? see second image below
thanks

Pete

I have now installed and re-installed the comboslider several times. I've followed directions to the best of my ability, including closely watching the video. I do at least have a change now - it no longer reads "failed to load image URL", but the code on Firebug for where the picture should be reads as follows:

 


My code in Dreamweaver reads:

getImageLink($product.link_rewrite, $product.id_image, 'large')}" alt="{$product.legend}">  


That is for a test product. The pic shows in BO, but no joy in comboslider. I don't see a 367-large subdirectory in my tree, so obviously there's still a problem somewhere. Now there's not even a text, just blank space (though the name & price do show on hover).

Please can someone help with this??
Thanks!
