Joomla! Template 002077 - Item Support

Hi Folks,

I'm interested in purchasing this template (002007) and quite likely avail myself of your premium package (AS Designing Templates Club).

I wanted to first try the demo version of this template (I've configured a couple of dozen Joomla sites going back to v1.5; now on v3.4.8 so I'm not a complete rookie there but muddle my way through server admin and full template customization).

I have WHM access to my server root and current sites. I was able to install the above template successfully but trying to install the first component generated an error relating to file size upload limits. I wasn't able to execute the instructions of increasing the upload size limit in the config or .htaccess file (couldn't seem to access the /usr/local/lib/php.ini file and didn't recognize what I needed to change in the .htaccess file).

I tried uploading the com_komento_1.8.3_free_j.zip file and to install it through the joomla back end but wasn't able to install (even on a subsequent attempt after uploading the .xml file to the site).

I'm trying to install the GeoArt Template 002007 into an existing site so I don't want to use the QuickStart package.

Any suggestions how I can complete the installation of that demo template extensions?

I'm happy to call or skype if that's easier. Let me know.

Thx.
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
The quick-start package is actually the template documentation. If by some reason you can't install it on your live server you can install on some demo server or demo folder and then preview all settings.
The package should be installed like regular Joomla installation.

Regards, AS Team.
Thanks for the quick response.

I'm running into the same issue on XAMPP. The template loads ok but I get an error trying to install the first extension: com_komento_1.8.3_free_j.zip (even after increasing the limits in php.ini file to 6M)

Where do I obtain the quick-start package for the demo version so I can test it on my server?

I assume, based on the installation description, that the quickstart package does a full Joomla install (ie overwrites existing site). Is that correct?
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
The quick-start package comes with the premium version only.

Regards, AS Team.
Fair enough.

If I purchase the 'Advanced Package' which includes '2 Installation Services' can someone on your team, as part of one of those installations, install the GeoArt template along with its supporting extensions and graphics etc onto an existing Joomla 3.4.8 site?
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
The template will be installed on the fresh Joomla CMS, all files from the previous installation will be deleted, it is too complicated to install the template and all extensions on the existing Joomla.

AS002077 QUICKSTART (FULL TEMPLATE) INSTALLATION FAILS

Purchased the full template (premium) but run into installation errors. Using as002077_quickstart.zip (extracting to localhost root folder and initiating the customary joomla installation) the Joomla installation fails on the final step when trying to install the sample data for this template (ie with "sample data 002077 template" selected). It keeps looping back to installation step 3 without generating any error messages.

Notes:
1. The data base appears to get created correctly (created tables are visible in phpmyadmin and I can browse your sample images etc. in the local site folders in htdocs)

2. The installation will complete successfully with the extracted as002077_quickstart.zip IF I choose to install WITHOUT "sample data 002077 template" (which defeats the purpose). Therefore a basic Joomla install works fine on my XAMPP server (I have a half dozen Joomla 3.4.8 sites running fine on this same XAMPP server).

3. The as0020077_quickstart.zip (when installed without sample data) currently installs JOOMLA 3.4.7 which is a buggy release. It should install JOOMLA 3.4.8

Suggestions?
Correction: I should have stated that the current version of 00002007 Quickstart installs JOOMLA 3.4.4
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
You have to increase PHP memory limit and execution time on your local host. In the php.ini file please find and increase values for memory_limit and max_execution_time parameters.

It happens because the package has much more sample data then the original joomla package.

Regards, AS Team.
Success :)

I've made the changes (per this ref):

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1263680/maximum-execution-time-in-phpmyadmin

and now have (per phpinfo()):

memory_limit 1000M 1000M
max_execution_time 5000 5000

Now onward with the site re-configuration and import of the actual site content.

Thx for your help.
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
That is exactly what we suggested you in our previous post :)

Regards, AS Team.
:) yes ... I was thanking you :)

just thought I'd share with other users some of the extra details in the reference link

Cheers.
Gallery | Portfolio View - How to Display Article Titles Below Images

The Gallery Module has different layouts under Advanced Permissions. The layout used in your Demo here is 'Portfolio' which does a nice job of presenting rollover info etc. over the Article's Intro Images.

The Blog layout in that same module doesn't provide the rollover function but displays the Article Titles under the Intro Image.

How can I display the Article Titles under (or over) the Article's Intro Image when in the 'Portfolio' layout.

Thx.
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
Sorry, not quite understand the problem, what is your site url please and the page where we can see the problem?

Regards, AS Team.
My site is local for now until it is fully developed.

I'm trying to keep the Portfolio layout like 'All, Lorem, Ipsum, Dolor' and the rollover effect for the images you have on this page:

http://demo.astemplates.com/joomla-templates/002077/#content-row-4

but to have the Article Title show over the images, like on this page:

http://demo.astemplates.com/joomla-templates/002077/#content-row-6

Thx
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
We are using 2 different layouts, for content row 4 - portfolio layout, and for row 6 - blog layout.

All parameters you can preview here:

MAIN SUBMENU - PLEASE CLARIFY PURPOSE/STRATEGY

Hi Folks,

I've been gradually customizing this template to do what we want.

I've been trying to understand why you use a Main Sub Menu in addition to the Main Menu and why you make the Main Sub Menu the 'Home' menu.

I can think of all sorts of strategies but I'm not 100% clear yet on why you chose this approach with this and other templates you've designed.

What would I lose by eliminating the Main Sub Menu?

What do I gain by using a Main Sub Menu?

If you know of a link which explains your approach, I'm happy to read up on it there. Nothing jump out at me on the Joomla Forums.

Thx.
Hello ZOOMJOOM,
Main Home menu is designed for Home page only when the Main Sub Menu for all other pages.

Regards, AS Team.
