CrystalPhoenix, your website is amazingly great !

I have a few questions: How did you manage to change the colours?

Could you please give us a detailed step-by-step summary on how to change the background colours.

 

I am very sorry for my ignorance but this is my first website and I am having a few problems... Thank you very much for your help! I am very grateful to you !!

 

Hello Fluopass,

In order to change the colours and background, you need an image editing software program such as Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, or Gimp. You find out which image you want to change (I use Firebug in Firefox to highlight the image and find out its name). I use Paint Shop Pro, and use its colour change tool to change the colours of the image. Then to keep it simple I save it with the same name. Alternatively you can name it anything you want, then find the reference to the original image in the css file and change that to reflect the new name.

Most of the colours definitions for the font and the bottom background are found in the themes/velvetsky/css/global.css file - I use Dreamweaver to open the file and change the colours (again, using Firebug to find out which line the colour definition is on). You could also use another text editing program such as Notepad, Microsoft Word, or Coffee Cup to open the files.

Some of the colours and images were a bit difficult to find - for example the Menu colours and graphics are under modules/jbx_menu/gfx and its css is (I think) in the jbx_menu/cache subdirectory. You may have to do a bit of digging.

Hope that helps - let me know if you have any trouble!

Hi ChrystalPhoenix ! And thank you so much for you reply !!

I downloaded Paint Shop Pro. Yet, As a novice, I have actually no idea how to access the CSS... Do you access the CSS on prestashop ? If yes, how ? All I can do is access the Global CSS on my desktop. What shall I do next ?

You say that you use Paint Shop Pro and its colour change tool to change the colour of the image. How ?

 

Thank you very much for your help. And sorry again for bothering you...

All right, I am starting to understand... Actually, you do everything directly on your website using Firefox and Firebug, am I right ?

But I don't get the thing with Paint Pro; How do you use it ?

Thank you for your answers and sorry for the multi posts !

I am new to Prestashop and excuse me if this is a stupid question. I tried upload this theme manually as the installer is not working. All is good but I have a question about the modules in.

 

I saw some modules in the theme package that already exist in Prestashop. I understand these modules in the theme are customized but my question is if I upload the customized modules I will be replacing the already existing ones right? Or do I miss something here?

 

P.S. Amazing theme!

install exactly as it indicates in the installation guide pdf of the theme, it worked almost for everyone. In order to make this theme work properly you´ll have to uninstall some default modules (you ll be able to quickly install them again later if necessary) and install others.

<block banner> can't display in prestashop 1.4.41.

 

That is actually true for me too! I didn't even notice at first, but no more block banner since I updated.

Hi Fluopass,

Firebug is an addon to Firefox, which is an internet browser. I use it to find out where the code is located and what it says.

Paint Shop Pro is a graphics editing program. I use it to alter graphics, photos, and design new images.

The code that runs the pages can be altered in an html editor such as Dreamweaver or Coffee Cup, or in a text editor such as Notepad or Microsoft Word.

So I find the code reference (for example a button image file) in Firebug, find the image file in Paint Shop Pro, alter it, and upload it to the website. I alter the css in Dreamweaver - again, find the reference in Firebug, pull the css or other file into Dreamweaver, alter the code (eg the colour of a background or the size of a division) and upload it to the site.

I think it might be beneficial for you to take some basic html and web design tutorials, and a tutorial on css, if you want to make changes to a site. Else it may be easier for you to just use the defaults....

sorry - for some reason I cannot seem to edit my earlier post:

 

Jianming: the file location for the navigation graphic is in yoursite/themes/velvetsky/img/navigation.png

 

Thanks a lot for your great help CrystalPhoenix! I guess I missed this one in my try outs...

 

And very nice site - it looks like the kind of site I wish could get at the end of my journey, but there is still quite a long road to go in my case!

 

Great, great thanks again.

Hello,

 

first of all, sorry for my bad English.

Actually I build my new shop based on this great theme, but I have an issue. I tried to swap the original JBX menu to MegaDrown Evolution menu module because of the great funcionality. As you can see the attached screenshoot, when I activated the MegaDrown module, the logo is slide out of my header. I tried to play with the CSS and TPL files, without any success.

 

Maybe somebody use this menu modul with Velvet sky theme... so if you have any good idea, it will be great. :)

 

Thank you, guys. :)

Hello, first off let me congratulate you on a GREAT looking theme!

 

Here is my small issue—I configured the theme on my local server and the main logo looked just fine (see screenshot 1). I then transferred the store to the clients server and the logo is now gone (see screenshot 2). It shows up in the admin/preferences/appearance but won't show up in the site.

 

Any ideas?

try uploading the logo file to yoursite/img/ directly instead of using the Back Office - I think I found that the files in the Back Office did not load up properly and I had to upload the file separately...

Hi i think you must change the file: blockcms.tpl inside blockcms module , then you can find the images inside dir themes/velvet../img/

 

at the end of the file blockcms.tpl you note the reference to twitter and facebook ID-image and link

give it a try

No matter what I do, I can't get the Block banner on the top of the pages and the Nivo Slider on the homepage installed. Both modules can be configured in the back-office but they won't appear in the front-end.

 

I've tried the newest Prestashop as well as 1.4.4.1 and 1.4.2.5.

 

Is it possible it has something to do with step "Modules on sidebar". I'm not sure what I supposed to do in this step

I need to fix the buttons for Add to Cart, Compare and to go to the product they are fine in english but when you switch to german they look displaced. I've turned off the block banner because it's shown in the wrong place. It goes right through the navigation and first box of the theme. Also in the footer, I put this in the >Modules > Blockcms > blockcms.tpl

But it's not shown on the website. In fact it still shows the old code and not the update. I double and triple checked and yes it is uploaded correctly.

 

Any idea how I can fix all those problems?

Just to let everyone know, I am running PrestaShop 1.4.5.1 and all of the modules are working corectly and displaying correctly! except for the newsletter block which was addressed earlier but I haven't had time to look at (still says error subscribing or something similar). One thing I noticed is that the jquery module would take a few attempts / unistalls / installs / and photo uploads for my photos to take. I had to do the same this with the advertising block at the bottom of the page. The page is for my [spam-filter]'s baby/clothing boutique. Have a look and let me know what you think; (site no longer uses preastashop). I haven't modified a single css file to get it to work either. If there is anyone else using 1.4.5.1 and has it working let us know because I think the community would appreciate that input

GREAT JOB Captain FLAM

thanks very much

 

Thanks B) , and : you're welcome .

 

What files are in the module by Captain? Will that fix the newsletter block?

 

1. as I said :

  • I integrate all the differences from original presta theme 1.4.2.5 to original presta theme 1.4.6.0 into Velvet sky theme
    ( you can do a compare between files velvet 1.4.2.5 <-> 1.4.6.0 with an excellent open-source tools like winmerge ;) )
  • I update the libs & modules to last version
  • I made some place changes (for modules that doesn't need more modifs)
    ( in theme/.../modules/ )

2. i didn't work about newsletter (and i will not, as i work with new presta theme for now ...)

 

3. By the way, i separate directories :

  • 2 standard dirs : modules & themes
  • 1 dir "manual_integration"
    ( you have to check, compare & integrate modifs if you made changes to these files )
    • blockcms-> put in /modules/
    • blocknewsletter -> put in /modules/
    • override -> put in /

That's all folk :)

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!

Did you ever get this to work, I am having the same issue. Thanks.

Well actually we abandoned this theme because our head IT person felt it was poorly written from a technical sense (not an aesthetic one. It looks great.)

 

But we did get them to line up:

For us the problem was in ../modules/blockwishlist/blockwishlist-extra.tpl

 

There is essentially one line of code in this file and it starts with :

<p class="buttons_bottom_block" id="mywish"...

 

 

The tag id="mywish" was missing from our version of that file. Don't know why.

 

 

Hope this hepls!

I love this theme! For those having problems installing it be sure to follow the instructions very carefully. once all instructions are done it should look right.

 

I have a question though for those in the know... I'm curious to know how to set the logo so that it's transparent. I uploaded a transparent png file and it made the background white. Any ideas?

Hi, Shannon.

 

You will have to use the background of the menu.

For mine I took a screenshot of the menu and added my logo to it, make sure the image is similar size as the menu colour has a little gradient in it.

 

Good luck!

Hello

 

I also want to use this awesome template but, as many others, is seems imposible to get it run! The problem is again the Slide. I have tried the zip of smasing people and then the compilation of Captain without sucess, and the worst is there is no option to know what happen, who knows? :(

 

My version of PS is 1.4.6.2 and the only thing I watch in my laptop is

 

Notice: Undefined variable: HOOK_SLIDER in /var/www/vhosts/centraliberica.com/httpdocs/tools/smarty/sysplugins/smarty_internal_data.php on line 291

 

Notice: Undefined variable: autoplay in /var/www/vhosts/centraliberica.com/httpdocs/tools/smarty/sysplugins/smarty_internal_data.php on line 291

 

Notice: Undefined variable: tabstyle in /var/www/vhosts/centraliberica.com/httpdocs/tools/smarty/sysplugins/smarty_internal_data.php on line 291

 

I have no hope to get it work, but I have to try! :-/

Hey guys~

 

Finally after weeks reading all of your posts and trying all the ways shown here I got a solution (at least for me).

 

I hope there's any problem in giving you the link to my file.

 

http://www.mediafire.com/?an1z2hc2czweaad

 

Actually it's just a files compilation (to make sure it's same as mine).

 

All you have to do is install and follow the steps of "INSTALATION GUIDE - VELVET SKY"

 

You can ignore the part of uploading and overwriting files from theme because I've already done it.

 

============================================

VELVETSKY PRESTASHOP THEME - January 23, 2011

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

 

Prestashop Version 1.4.6.2

 

- original "prestashop_1.4.6.2.zip" from prestashop.com

- original files from "Velvet Sky (PS 1.4.6) by Captain FLAM"

- fixed error in category.tpl

 

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

 

Thanks to Captain FLAM for the adapted version and jakeg1984 for inspiring me to do it! ^^

 

I do hope it works for you, guys!!

 

Good luck~

I've got everything working fine for this theme except for the Nivo JQuery Slider. I cannot even see the module in the modules section to install it. I've tried as many versions of the module as I can find with no joy... velvet sky original version, developers version, captain flam version. None show up to allow me to install them in the modules section. Any help would be great! Thanks!

I am actually having a problem with the Top of page menu. It seems to change and become two lines when I change the language. Also it seems to fix itself when I change the view size in example if I zoom out. The only problem with that is I don't want to have to keep doing that and I do not want that to be a problem with my customers either.This happens in firefox, but when I open it in I.E. it works fine. If anyone could help it would be nice, this is like the only problem that I have come across, and I'm in a bit of a pickle here =/

 

I'm using both updated versions of firefox and I.E.

Edit: Solved problem. For those having the same problem, just change your logo size/position to make it fit perfectly or else it will mess everything up.

 

Gee thanks! but were did you change your logo size/position to make it fit perfectly?

If anyone has a hard time finding the global.css file it is located in your themes\css file.

Well it seems that now with the new update that this template is more of a headache than a good thing. Since having the problem with the moving top menu like before and like dupey, I also have this weird alignment of the add to cart and the add to my wish list buttons on the product page.

 

Tried to get help from them but of course I was unsucessful because it is not a supported template. In the mean time I guess since no one else know anything about these problems I will use this template until I can find another better one-or someone that can fix the other errors here.

I am actually having a problem with the Top of page menu. It seems to change and become two lines when I change the language. Also it seems to fix itself when I change the view size in example if I zoom out. The only problem with that is I don't want to have to keep doing that and I do not want that to be a problem with my customers either.This happens in firefox, but when I open it in I.E. it works fine. If anyone could help it would be nice, this is like the only problem that I have come across, and I'm in a bit of a pickle here =/

 

I'm using both updated versions of firefox and I.E.

 

Width for the area is 940px, if you have a width larger than 940px, it will go down. So make sure the width is 940px or make it wider.

You could use .htaccess or create a index.php file that contain php redirect script.

 

 

Gee thanks! but were did you change your logo size/position to make it fit perfectly?

 

For edit the logo, in global.css find the following code.

#header_logo and img.logo

 

You could adjust the positions of your logo there.

Hi, Shannon. You will have to use the background of the menu. For mine I took a screenshot of the menu and added my logo to it, make sure the image is similar size as the menu colour has a little gradient in it. Good luck!

 

Which part of screen should I capture? Why can't I use png with transparency ?

Has anyone had this same problem with the Comboslider?

 

When I click on on the images in the comboslider it sends me to an 'empty' product page or one in which the light background color doesn't appear. I'm working on 'prestashop_1.4.6.2 + Velvet Sky (PS 1.4.6) by Captain FLAM.zip' downloaded from this thread on local WAMP server.

 

Would be very grateful for any suggestions.

Same problem! New products does work great in comboslider... Feature products just with description but without images.

I use prestaversion 1.4.7.3 and will see what fixes I can make in that wonderful theme.

 

Suggestions are welcome!

Hello

 

anybody has idea about how to remove "Dapurpixel" logo from Velvet Sky template? I have read the FAQS but I don't find the way to remove it.

 

The footer block is managed by CMS block in Modules and I can add or remove some things but I can not remove or edit Fabebook and Twitter logo and Dapurpixel logo from Velvet Sky.

 

 

If you read the FAQS autor tell us you need to remove from blockms.tpl but I don't see anything about Facebook logo in the code

 

footer.tpl

Hi!

i'm trying to change de size of the banners in the block advertising home so they can span the full width of the of the column, i managed to change the size but i cant make them align properly they overlap each other.

 

I tried to change the CSS and the PHP files of the module and nothing seems to work, so i guess i'm not checking in the right place (i'm a designer, i can modify the code but i can't really code it from scratch). Can anyone help me out? The main reason is that we don't need the newsletter block, and we're left with a blank, so we want our advertising banners to take all the place instead.

 

thank you very much!

 

right now it looks like that :/ :

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 :)

 

I tried this and nothing. Did someone find out how this problem is solved?

Also I would like to align the category text description. Can someone help me???
