No, we are not talking about 2.0 but about the template in 2.0, that is something completely different.

And this is not censorship, I'm just pointing to you what this topic is about.

If you fed up with OC then just leave, but do not come here just to vent your own shortcomings.

Hi everyone,

I'm just about to start a test project with OC2 and the new bootstrap theme. Love the new style of the theme, thanks guys!

Now i'm new to bootstrap and noticed that the new theme uses two css files, stylesheet.css and bootstrap.css. Can someone point me in the right direction how to edit the new theme and what NOT to do.... Tips are also welcome!

Thanks,
Tim

When it comes to creating your web theme, e.g. you have your own graphics, color schemes etc., you would mainly deal with the stylesheet.css. There should be no need to change the bootstrap.css.

The best way to start your own web theme is to create your own catalog/view/theme/mytheme folder. In an ideal web theming scenario all you'd need is this:

catalog/view/theme/mytheme/image/* (images for your new web theme)
catalog/view/theme/mytheme/stylesheet/stylesheet.css (colors, fonts, styles for your new web theme)

If you also need to overwrite some of the templates, only specify the ones which need to be changed, in your

catalog/view/theme/mytheme/template

let me know what you think! I'm adding it to github now.
O Daniel , my dear your work is really very-very appreciative, the best is you are offering it free, Being a store owner i have been using OpenCart for last 3 years. Although I have just switched on Presta shop, due to some important product dispaly and seo features.
My products are specially based on color, size and offers : Opencart has color options but not much user friendly, it should be more better.
When I was using Opencart I bought some extensions to get those things work for me, but as you know these developers are not as good as you are :) after spending the money on those modules I had to suffer bugs and errors.

As I seen your OC2 version, I hope you must do some really great enhancement specially on product display. as I m not a developer I m just a user so for better reference, I request to see the latest release of Presta shop 1.6 it has almost 99% features to meet a simple and better online shop [http://demo-store.prestashop.com/index.php]

I m not a fan of PS but just want you to add such good and working features in to the new OC2.0 so, people can get really more of it and save time including with headache of extension errors or bugs,

My only intention and wish is to see the opencart in top of the list. And I do believe you will do some best things to make OC stand out more than it is now.

As I mentioned above I m not a fan of PS but I m a fan of OC :)

Ok, thanks. Is the theme style a override of the bootstrap?

No, it isn't. The bootstrap.css and bootstrap.js etc are only specified in your

catalog/view/theme/mytheme/template/common/header.tpl

Bootstrap is mainly responsible for the responsive layout of the pages, it has only some minimum theming in there for e.g. certain elements such as buttons, menu colors. If these need to be overwritten, do it in your stylesheet.css.

I have had a couple of days playing with version 2.0 and so far so good. A couple of changes I would recommend to help boost sales for your customer's customers would be:

1. On the mobile bootstrap template you have the side category menu above the product in product view. If you have more than say 5 items in the menu it will take up the whole screen and they have to scroll to the bottom to "Add to Cart." It would be better to have a collapsable menu (or lose this altogether as you have two identical menus) and the "Add to Cart" option above the product. They may have already made their mind up to buy but then need to scroll all the way to the bottom again to buy.

2. Version 2.0 still has the same checkout sequence as 1.X.X.X.X. Customers are not the saviest people and I believe lots are lost at this point so I always install a 1 page checkout module. Version 2.0 would be great with this feature in from scratch.

Looking forward to the stable release.

just had a cheeky look at the demo. Looks very nice! Only thing I noticed it that when stitching to list view on the category pages things don't look quite right.

Can a forum moderator please move the posts about the OpenCart 2.0 release date to a separate forum thread please? And then make sure that posters use this thread only to discuss the actual subject (OpenCart 2.0 Template)!
Thanks.

I think that's done by OSWORX

So: If anyone keeps continuing in this topic with questions about a release date for 2.0, and this topic is NOT about the release date of 2.0, I will ban you for 1 week.

Others have been perm banned from repeatedly asking that same question.

You can vent your "release" questions here: When will we see OpenCart 2.0?.

When uploading and .jpg or .png it says "incorrect file type"

also it won't let me go into directories and when deleting one file with the checkbox it deletes the whole image directory.

Browsers tested with: firefox and chrome

filesize: 64kb

Just posting that I'm having issues with the V2 template and buyers who are still on IE8. The issue is that it does not work with IE8. The buy button does not click.
I appreciate that it is not a bug and we all agree that IE suxs but there is still IE8 money out there.
I'll be rolling back to the 1.5.x template. I told one buyer to upgrade his IE or use Firefox. His reply was simply that he is not going to do it, which leaves me a choice of losing his money or catering for IE8.

jty: OpenCart 2.0, along with its responsive web theme, hasn't even been released yet, it is still work in progress.

Hi JNeuhoff,
I'm aware that V2 is still WIP, however, even when it does come out, I highly suspect that it won't work for IE8.
I'm not a developer but just doing some digging around on the net, I have discovered that -
1. jQuery 2 does not support IE8
2. There's no IE9 and above for XP
Which means the XP/IE users are stuck. They either need to leave IE or upgrade their operating system so they can continue with using IE9+. As one buyer told me, he's not upgrading.
The good news is that the number of IE8 users is very small now. Maybe the problem will disappear by the time v2 comes out.

I hope I'm wrong. I hope there is a way to make the V2 theme work in IE8 or for all IE8 users to move to another browser.

Having said that, the V2 template can be fitted onto v1.5.x and it works beautifully in IE9 and above. If all we need is a responsive theme, it is easier than getting frustrated waiting for V2 (except for IE8)

Running Opencart v2.2 with multi-stores from http://www.labeshops.com which has links to all my stores.

@labeshops - you can get the complete V2 download as it is in the moment by -
- go to the download page
- about mid-way on the left, under the blue bar with the word download, there is a link to Github
- when you get to Github, you will see the word "Opencart". That's a link to the Opencart project
- when you get to the Opencart project, on the right column, scroll down until you see "Download Zip". It's under clone to desktop.
That's how I get V2. Note that you can't just use the V2 template files. You need to patiently go through and mod the files to fit 1.5.x

@JNeuhoff - doing more digging around the net, I also discovered that something needs to be done for bootstrap for IE8. In IE8, the template looks like the mobile template, one column only. Something to do with html5 elements. It's over my head.

I also discovered that Microsoft dropped support for XP and IE8 last week. So, going forward from an Opencart perspective, it's probably not worth catering for IE8. I also read that IE8 market share is now down to 10% (one site said) or 3.9% as said by another site.

I guess for store owners, it comes down to deciding how important IE8 is for us. I've had 4 IE8 buyers contact me in the past 6 weeks. 3 were co-operative. One used her mobile, another switched to Firefox and a 3rd just used email to place an order. Only one was stubborn. But they were repeat buyers who know me. The new comers would just click off to another site.

I don't think it's an issue to report in Github as it is not a bug. Microsoft is the bug. But it's good for store owners to know in advance so they don't get surprised like I did and waste their time upgrading to V2 if IE8 is important to them.

NB - I haven't tested it on a clean V2 install so there is a possibility that my modded template broke something but from what I have read, I don't think it's likely that I broke it. I only have limited access to an XP machine to get a hold of IE8 for testing.
