Since I’m starting with a new Magento site and HelloPod I was planning on making the upgrade to Magento 1.4…will the HelloPod theme work properly with 1.4? I was going to start with a completely fresh install of the Magento sample data and Magento 1.4 but before moving forward I want to make sure this works? Please let me know as soon as you get a chance. THANK YIOU!
Aaron, thanks for verifying it works. I have uninstalled magento, added in the sample data, and reinstalled magento v1.4 so it’s live. *HOWEVER* I still can’t get the HelloPod them to show up in admin and to activate it. Can you please activate this theme again? I’ve uploaded all the theme files again and the FTP connectivity is the same except the Magento admin URL and password has changed…I’m sending that to you through your contact form now. If you can knock this out real quick I would greatly appreciate it, and I don’t think I’ll have any other requests thereafter. I appreciate your time! THANKS!
DISREGARD MY PREVIOUS POST ABOUT ACTIVATING THE THEME, I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THAT *BUT* HAVE ONE OTHER ISSUE…
I’ve lost the homepage slider and the content below it; the left bar (with “My Cart” “Compare Products” etc,) as well as the “body” content area of the “OUR LATEST PRODUCTS” with the 8 product grid. How do I add this back?
In the Magento Admin CMS>>>PAGES area I disabled the two default Home Page options because they were feeding in the generic starter Magento pages. Do I add in a new Home Page there or how do I get it to be back like your demo of HelloPod shows? You should have my login info still, so feel free to just add it in yourself if it’s easier than explaining it.
This should hopefully be it for requests on my end. Thank you very much for your time and I know the new release of 1.4 has added more work, so I really appreciate your help knowing your so busy!
Thanks Aaron, I’ve just sent my Magento admin and FTP info through your contact form. If you have a direct email that is better I’m happy to send through there for future reference.
I did run into another issue last night which may be related to this. I was trying to edit the footer info with “footer.phtml” and the changes I made did not affect the site…the changes I’d make to “header.phtml” would though, it was odd. I also tried editing the “catalogsearch.xml” and “catalog.xml” files to remove some the SITE MAP, SEARCH TERMS, and ADVANCED SEARCH footer links but they weren’t affected either. Any ideas here? Maybe it’s related to the other items going on as I saw other forum posts about not being able to adjust the footer. THANKS AGAIN!
I went and cleared all the cache. Is this supposed to fix the homepage slider, or does this have to do with the footer.phtml w/ catalog.xml and catalogsearch.xml question? I haven’t tried editing the footer and xml files yet, but will give it a go, but the header slider and homepage layout is still not working.
I believe I need you to go in and edit the homepage block to get the slider to work. I have not enabled either of the homepages from the starter data under ADMIN>CMS>PAGES since they don’t match them theme. What I want is exactly what you have on the demo and what used to be there for my homepage before the upgrade to 1.4…the header slider and the body content with the left-side bar sections (MY CART, COMPARE PRODUCTS, etc.) and the main content of OUR LATEST PRODUCTS.
Can you please get my site to match the demo, the upgrade to 1.4 apparently killed this layout. THANKS!
Sorry to bug you again…any luck on fixing my homepage slider and content like you did for the other poster on this message I started. I’ve send you my FTP and Magento login but can send it again if that helps. You can review previous posts for more info about my request above, but basically I’m looking for the slider to come back and also have the same style homepage content as the demo of this theme does. Right now I have no homepage content again from the Admin CMS page manager because the options are both just the demos. THANKS!
