How do I install this theme? I tried it with the Prestashop Installer, but it always gets timed out. Can some one explain how to install through FTP and make it the default theme? :mellow:

I am having a problem with BLOCKNEWSLETTER in velvet sky. If I type in an email address, I get the error: "E-mail address already registered", even if the address hasn't been registered. And the email address is added to the database. If I do this with several different email addresses - I get the same results.

 

If I go to a product page where the BLOCKNEWSLETTER has an UNSUBSCRIBE choice, and unsubscribe the email address, I am returned to the Home Page and the Newsletter Block has the errorL "E-mail address already not registered" - which is ok. But then all email addresses I try and register after that are also met with: "E-mail address already registered" error.

 

Does anyone have any ideas about how to fix this problem?

 

Thanks!

Lynnette

 

may be u can uninstall blocknewsletter, and then remove the block, and add again, and install again

Within your modules/block CSM/blockcsm.tpl find: <!-- Social Media --> <div id="footer-follow"> <a title="Like us on Facebook" id="footer-facebook" href="http://facebook.com/**YOURFACEBOOKPAGE**">Like us on Facebook</a> <a title="Follow us on Twitter" id="footer-twitter" href="http://twitter.com/**YOURTWITTERACCOUNT**">Follow us on Twitter</a> </div> <!-- /Social Media -->and change the URL's to direct to your Facebook page and twitter page respectively!

 

robkwal, use which program to open it?

 

if you`re using cpanel, you could right click at those tpl files and choose edit. If you`re on windows, consider using notepad++

manually, first upload the velvetsky into your prestashop themes folder, after upload all files inside modules folder into your prestashop /modules folder.

 

At your Back Office, choose preferences > appearance.

Hello guys. Thank you for this nice theme!

I`m using preta 1.4.2.5 with this theme.The problem is that after installing another language pack I can`t see the product images that I upload in Back Office. In front office is there but in BO i can`t see it. Uploading the image with english language selected works, but if I disable english no picture image shows in BO.

Any sugestions?

 

In what language you created new products ? please check the product at the language you use when creating the products.

Hi

 

Great template, I am having an issue with the Combo Slider. The Previous and Next arrows are not showing as in the demo. Any help is appreciated!

 

Have a look at the image and you can see what I mean. It looks the same in IE, FF, and Chrome.post-265115-0-02113700-1311963194_thumb.jpg

Hi,

 

great theme I must admit too.

 

I changed the menu and now I got a shop logo under the menu not to the left of it. Any idea? I tried to change the menu size, but I didn't succeeded. Also have no idea what the "Index Layer" changes.

 

What I would like to set is:

On the left Logo of the shop, then the menu itself, and on the right search box. All in one row.

 

Would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks Anganiel

Hi,<br/>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.<br/><br/>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?<br/><br/>Hopefully this is also useful for others who switched to the new image system...<br/><br/>Thanks!
<br/><br/>Hi Greezteams<br/>maybe this attachment can help you. Thank You :D

 

Hi DapurPixel,

I tried to use the attached file "fuatured-list.plt" and get the image below, I can't see the jquery nivo slider at home page, how to fix this.

Thanks

Read the pdf instructions (page 5) enclosed in the file:<br/><br/>“ATTENTION<br/>All uploaded images will be stored in /modules/slideric folder and automatically renamed as en0.jpg, en1.jpg, en2.jpg and en3.jpg respectively.<br/>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<br/>and rename it with the appropriate ISO code.”

 

Hi,

As defaut, the slideric folder has the enlinks.xml with the image en0.jpg, en1.jpg, ... I already choose English language, but can't see the the the slideric on frontpage. Is there something I'm missed here? I already install the Nivo slideric at homepage content but seen nothing.

 

Thanks.

Hi Darpurpixe and velvet sky funsl!!

I must say that this theme you provided to the community is really really good!!

I definitely appreciate it! and hope everyone else too!

Fantastic theme, I am running it on the prestashop 1.4.3

I am just before the finish of my own presta shop , but I am having problems with the Combo Slider and the default options on footer menu. My problem is with the language. I use Greek language . I want to change the titles of them to Greek ( new products to ‘’νέα προϊόντα’’) and Specials to ‘’Προσφορές’’ , and that because I am interest only to the Greek population and maybe my costumers don’t know read English. I have tried all the changes at the . tpl files but when I put Greek the letters disappears .

Did anyone knows what I have to do to fix this issue? I try to change UTF-8 at ISO-8859-7 but nothing again..

I want to changes only the characters (in Greek) and not the function of the comboslider and the footer links.

I send you a image to be as much clear I can.

Thanks and I hope someone has the answer.

You can open it with any HTML editor. I found that it was easier to change the .tpl to .html and then edit it. When finished, change .html back to .tpl. Hope that helps!

Actually I worked with another member on this - we discovered that if you have the Newsletter block HOOKED to anything except for the HomePage Content and the Header of Pages, the subscribe throws an error. In some browsers it still throws an error after this, so we discovered that if you UNHOOK the module from the Header Of Pages, try the subscribe (it looks bad because the CSS is unavailable) and then REHOOk it to the Header of Pages, everything seems to be fine. DOn't have any idea what is going on when you do these things - as far as I can tell it's all magic.

Hello all. I have fixed all the comboslider issues by reverting back to 1.4.2.5. Such a shame. I hope that the true cause of the comboslider issues can be fixed for 1.4.4 and beyond.

 

I have customized this beautiful theme extensively at great effort.

 

Unfortunately, the newsletter issue is really detrimental to the function of the site. I tried the process recommended by Lynnette with the hooking/unhooking several times and in several different ways - still no luck. I find it disconcerting that the newsletter is broken on daprupixel's demo site as well. Still no comment from her on this???

 

Fingers crossed...

i checked on mySql database, there no created ps_newsletter db, that needed for this module,

after you installed blocknewsletter 1.4 module then run this query manually from phpmyadmin..

 

 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `ps_newsletter` (

`id` int(6) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

`email` varchar(255) NOT NULL,

`newsletter_date_add` DATETIME NULL,

`ip_registration_newsletter` varchar(15) NOT NULL,

`http_referer` VARCHAR(255) NULL,

PRIMARY KEY(`id`)

) ENGINE='._MYSQL_ENGINE_.' default CHARSET=utf8 ;

 

then try to subscribe, for unregistered user, the data will inserted into ps_newsletter, for registered user, it will set ps_customer 'newsletter' value to '1', so there is no error subscribe again

 

hope can do little help :)

 

tested on ps 1.4.2.5 and 1.4.3

 

note: backup your db first

Thanks for your suggestion. I successfully executed the query in phpmyadmin. However, now, no matter what email address I try to register as, I get the error: "E-mail address already registered"

 

Interestingly, the registered addresses do show up in the newly added ps_newsletter table in phpmyadmin. But I can't find the email recipients from the table in phpmyadmin anywhere in the BO - Should I see them in the Newsletter widget under the Stats tab in the BO?

 

Any Ideas? Thanks.

One thing that was driving me crazy was this very thing and to fix it, after a lot of trial and error is this:

 

Go to >Modules > Menu and then make sure the 'Width; is set correctly, if its not it will throw the logo out of alignment and the whole thing will look funny.

 

I set mine to 675 - see pic

 

I hope it helps.

I've tested what you propose, I am changing nothing

Deltacrab

Sorry but this does not apply on the block in the left menu

but thank you.

 

Someone would have it a true solution

because I aim and I really need this theme to start my business

 

I also sent a message to the developer offering to pay to make this change but it does not respond

Hi Maury,

 

I have taken another look at your screen shot and I think you have your modules ordered incorrectly or in the wrong places and why its offset. I have taken a screen shot of all of my module positions for you to match up ... let me know how you go.

Hi there, i´ve been using and adapting this theme and while doing this i found a couple of malfunctions, here the details and the solution if some of you have found the same error and still dont know how to fix it:

 

1)These components do not show BLOCK ADVERTISING HOME - BLOCK BANNER - BLOCK ADVERTISING

-In my case they didnt show just because they were blocked by an adblock plugin (AdBlock plus for firefox) disable it and thats about it.

 

2)When trying to set a URL to each of the three components BLOCK ADVERTISING HOME - BLOCK BANNER - BLOCK ADVERTISING the url associated changes and the three components ends with the same URL.

-This is because in the .php file of each one of the components there is a variable that contains the url, that variable i think is kinda global and the problem is that it has the same name in the three component .php files. The name of the variable is BLOCKADVERT_LINK. Add a distinctive character to that variable in all the invocations within the file, do that in the php file of each one of the components adding a different character to each one of them.

I solved this deleting jbx_menu module and adding it again. Now, I would like to change translations of comboslider featured products. Only they appear in english (e.g "Add to cart" instead "Añadir al carrito")

Añadir al carrito is in spanish.

 

Thank you all

Hello Alvmad

I found a solution after several days of research

Add a clear: both; the id columns:

as shown in the attached code on line 304 of global.css

 

# columns {

background: none repeat scroll 0 0 # FBF8E9;

clear: both;

}

Hi guys, just reporting a simple solution. The addresses.tpl of the template must be modified for the customer to be able to modify and delete an address correctly.

 

THIS

----

<li class="address_update"><a href="{$link->getPageLink('address.php', true)}?id_address={$address.object.id_address|intval}" title="{l s='Update'}">{l s='Update'}</a></li>
		<li class="address_delete"><a href="{$link->getPageLink('address.php', true)}?id_address={$address.object.id_address|intval}&delete" onclick="return confirm('{l s='Are you sure?'}');" title="{l s='Delete'}">{l s='Delete'}</a></li>

 

MUST BE REPLACED WITH THIS

--------------------------

<li class="address_update"><a href="{$link->getPageLink('address.php', true)}?id_address={$address.object.id|intval}" title="{l s='Update'}">{l s='Update'}</a></li>
		<li class="address_delete"><a href="{$link->getPageLink('address.php', true)}?id_address={$address.object.id|intval}&delete" onclick="return confirm('{l s='Are you sure?'}');" title="{l s='Delete'}">{l s='Delete'}</a></li>

Hi,

I have spend quite a few hours changing the colours on this theme to suit my site. I am almost there, but seem to have a problem with white boxes showing up around all my category/product images. I have searched and searched, but can't find a solution to this. It makes the site look pretty ugly when your background is a light teal and you have a huge white box around the category image, and also white boxes around all the product images. This is not caused by the images themselves, since I have used the same images on an oscommerce site with no problems.

Does anyone know how to remove those boxes? They seem to be placeholders, but they are considerably bigger than the images. I would at least like to be able to change the colour to the same as the background of the page.

 

Thanks,

Marianne

Hi Marianne, if i understood correctly i think you´re talking about the images format, that fills with white when the image dont fit exactly with the configured image dimensions. I suggest you to use all your images with square dimensions, if you do that you wont have any problem. If you want to use rounded corner images use .png extension files and thats it.

I finally figured out how to get rid of the huge white boxes lat last night, some of them were more than 2x the size of the image. Changing the images to the allotted dimensions would have made them look too stretched. I changed all my images to png, and set the preferences to use png only. That got rid of the big white areas around the images.

i checked on mySql database, there no created ps_newsletter db, that needed for this module,

after you installed blocknewsletter 1.4 module then run this query manually from phpmyadmin..

 

 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `ps_newsletter` (

`id` int(6) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

`email` varchar(255) NOT NULL,

`newsletter_date_add` DATETIME NULL,

`ip_registration_newsletter` varchar(15) NOT NULL,

`http_referer` VARCHAR(255) NULL,

PRIMARY KEY(`id`)

) ENGINE='._MYSQL_ENGINE_.' default CHARSET=utf8 ;

 

then try to subscribe, for unregistered user, the data will inserted into ps_newsletter, for registered user, it will set ps_customer 'newsletter' value to '1', so there is no error subscribe again

 

hope can do little help :)

 

tested on ps 1.4.2.5 and 1.4.3

 

note: backup your db first

 

I tried this fix, and when I run the query in phpmyadmin, I get a "#1286 - Unknown table engine '._MYSQL_ENGINE_.'" error message. I am not familiar with mysql and phpmyadmin, so don't know what is wrong. I get an "error during subscription" message in the newsletter block when trying to add a new email address.

I was having this problem, and what finally fixed it is a fresh install of PS and fresh install of the theme - I think perhaps a module from another theme I tried may have been interfering. Back up all your files and db first...

Hi crystal, that happened to me too. If you´re using innodb structure in your database then you should change the last line of the query.

 

CHANGE THIS:

) ENGINE='._MYSQL_ENGINE_.' default CHARSET=utf8 ;

FOR THIS:

) ENGINE=InnoDB default CHARSET=utf8 ;

 

hope it works for you too!

About the Newsletter Block, i was having problems with the newsletter block messages, i finally fixed it by using a unique "operation successful" message instead of several descriptive messages, the functionality of the module is perfect but i couldn´t fix the messages display situation.

 

Has anybody had a problem with the cart when enabling the "geolocation by ip" option?

Thank you, I tried this, and phpMyadmin said the query was successful. Unfortunately, now the message reads "address is already subscribed" even when the address isn't.

 

Does anyone know how the newsletter module works? I have a mailing list service on another host, and up until now, I had a link directly to that mailing list subscription, but I don't know how to configure PS's newsletter module to use the third party system, and I also do not know how to "harvest" any email addresses that people might submit so I can sign them up manually, if PS isn't able to "point" to the third party mailing list service.

The newsletter module works except for the messages that it shows, replace messages "address is already subscribed" and "address is not subscribed" for "operation successful" and if you think about that, operation succesful message really simplify the things for a confused subscriber.

Thank you - I checked it and you're right. I changed the translations in BO but not before subscribing and unsubscribing several times. I don't understand why those messages ("already registered" and "does not exist") are being sent when appropriate messages are available ( eg "subscription successful" and "unsubscription successful").....

Dear friends at DapurPixel,

 

Thank you for your marvelous Velvet Sky theme. Being tasked with redesigning my parent's website into a real selling platform, I will use it to power my prestashop project.

 

I am sorry to disturb you with a question related to a free project, knowing you are certainly very busy with the ones you actually sell. I tried to do most of the stuff by myself, with a trial/error approach. Most of the stuff found an answer - until I finally had to change the color of the JBX menu bar.

 

After a certain time trying (something like more than a couple hours) I came to the conclusion that the style of this bar

- is not managed by the JBX module, as whatever you would do on the admin interface won't change the color

- may be managed by an extra css with higher priority then, and that could be either superfish-modified.css or menu.css, both somewhere in the JBX module directory.

 

Problem is that although some modifications to actually show (letters, hover color, this kind of stuff), there is still no visible effect on the menu color, even when I replace all the colors with black (including in the vs_sub file). So obviously I am either not looking at the right place, or not doing the right thing. Any clue about this?

 

Great thanks in advance!!

Hi,

Anybody got it working in prestashop 1.4.4?

I tried to quickly update from 1.4.3, and everything was all over the place, so I gave up and returned to 1.4.3. It would be nice to keep up to date though. Once you let go, it's hard to get back!

run this query in your phpmyadmin to fix the newsletter module problem.

 

 

 

 

Hi,

 

Open your phpmyadmin, and run this query

 

 

 

CREATE TABLE ps_newsletter (
`id` int(6) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
`email` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
`newsletter_date_add` DATETIME NULL,
`ip_registration_newsletter` varchar(15) NOT NULL,
`http_referer` VARCHAR(255) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY(`id`)
)

 

that will fix the CREATE TABLE ‘._DB_PREFIX_.’newsletter ( problem

Hello guys. Thank you for this nice theme!

I`m using preta 1.4.2.5 with this theme.The problem is that after installing another language pack I can`t see the product images that I upload in Back Office. In front office is there but in BO i can`t see it. Uploading the image with english language selected works, but if I disable english no picture image shows in BO.

Any sugestions?

 

In what language you created new products ? please check the product at the language you use when creating the products.
