Re: template designer

@ custom brand Could you explain a little more about that? I'm having trouble understanding that concept since I've seen so many sites that are basically the same concept outside of specialized images that people have thrown in. By customizing towards your brand, I mean you shouldn't be using the d...

Re: template designer

It is always best to have a website custom made for your brand, not to use a template (and I say this as a person who sells items/templates on the Envato marketplaces). However, after working with and for several small businesses, I know not everyone has the budget to hire a web designer to make a s...

Re: Error fetching Ajax content.

You have a few validation errors in your markup that are going to cause some issues. One that I noticed is you have defined a div with an id of "content" more than once, once around here <div id="line"></div> <div id="content"> <div id="container"> and again further down in your code. I would consid...

Re: Module Template implementation change idea

I'm sure you could easily replace the instance number with whatever else you want. And clients break everything anyways :O

Re: Module Template implementation change idea

I agree we should tag the modulename in a class I guess now. I would have said an id, but with modules being instanced in 1.5. so you can have multiple instances of the module on the screen at the same time I guess it will have to be a class, Well you could append the module's class/id declaration ...

Re: Module Template implementation change idea

I should also add I know there will be no solution to auto-make every module match a custom template, but it feels like adjusting the stylesheet for the id of whichever individual module, or whatever wrapper you choose to use (in our case box) is a lot more efficient then changing every single modul...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

... but within the current system since every module has to have a tpl file mod makers have no choice but to make that tpl file match the default theme as that is the only constant they have to work with. I don't think we require a single module template, and I apologize if I am just confusing you,...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

so a mod maker should code his module to some undetermined schema to match what you one person may want that you are not even sure of from project to project rather than code them so that most of their customers who are not theme makers can simply upload them and they look right in the default temp...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

If I understand it right, you are saying modules should supply the content, not how it looks... Yes, basically. I understand there will be extra markup, but it should be only what is needed for the module, not to make it match a specific theme, unless that module intends to be made to be used for j...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

Yes I know they are for rounded corners. My point was that they are not needed as part of the module's template files, not every template uses those classes for rounded corners. And I am not talking about the modules that come packaged with OpenCart. I understand the default template files for those...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

not really sure what you are expecting mod makers to do. It makes perfect sense for them to use the standard box class as in 99% of ecommerce applications you want all your modules to look the same and have consistency throughout your site. By reusing this standard class it allows the module to loo...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

Something ate my post, so I apologize if this is double posted. I think one thing is clear... everyone has different preferences for menus so the megamenu will need to be made modular so that it can be disabled/modified easily. It is hardcoded at the moment, against my wishes. So that is something w...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

Our friend Purebeads is arguing that the default menu should be changed to click-based. This definitely should not occur so it's a perfectly valid discussion. Fair enough. I guess I hate when people just reuse default theme anyways, so it seems like a trivial thing to spend a page or so of posts on...

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

Going back and forth about whether to have click menus or not is kind of pointless. This is all something that can be customized by a theme (and most businesses use a custom theme anyways, not a default theme that everyone has).

Re: Where are the global variables with the generated HTML ?

The search bar is in your header.tpl file. Also, basically your .tpl files make up the template files for your store, how it looks. The .php files you find in root/catalog/controller/ tell the platform which variables you can call in the different parts of your template. For a short explanation of i...

Re: Fontpage Slide Show Mod

Its not a mod and it requires customizing it to match your site, editing the .tpl files and whatnot, but I use http://nivo.dev7studios.com/'s Nivo slider for basically any project of mine that requires an image slider.

Re: Sneak Peek: OpenCart 1.5.0 *ALPHA*

So many module positions = me excited. I get asked a lot about how to add more module positions, or how to move certain things to the footer/header. More layout options in the backend are also win. Is that a built in Nivo slider configuration page? :O While the new default theme is shiny and new and...

Re: brands

You can edit root/catalog/view/theme/theme_name/template/module/manufacturer.tpl Where it says <?php echo $heading_title; ?> Delete that and replace that with whatever new name you want. OR, if you're using language translations, then you would edit catalog/language/language_name/module/manufacturer...
