Talking Re: X-Cart Adapt Template

Decided to go with Adapt after having great success with Ability! Man it's fun to start again, can't wait to launch it.

Major thing is the responsive part of it, soo many people have ipads and iphones and use there phones for stuff now, just checked my Google analytics and quite a lot of orders have came through phones/ipads.

Thanks Jack

On request, I'm adding a new header category menu option to the template - a responsive four level dropdown flyout menu, in case the mega dropdown menu is not suitable for your categories.

So I will be sending out revised files to all current purchasers later on today.

We are also having a look at it.

Very nice indeed, still trying my best to break it, but some good feaures, and is looking great so far

Anyone having issues with the testimonials admin...

In admin/grid/inc/prepare_grid.php

After the opening...

<?php

On the next line, insert...

ini_set("display_errors","off");

Is anyone able to point me in the direction for modifying the slider image size?

I would like to reduce the height, but cant find where.

Thanks

It's a responsive slider, probably best to adjust your slider images heights, then re-upload them, otherwise your images might get distorted...

Or...

skin/adapt/addons/slider/slider/tpl

Add height tags, eg. replace...

<a href="{$config.Adapt.adapt_home_s1_link}"><img src="{$http_location}/files/uploads/slider/{$config.Adapt.adapt_home_s1}"></a>

With...

<a href="{$config.Adapt.adapt_home_s1_link}"><img src="{$http_location}/files/uploads/slider/{$config.Adapt.adapt_home_s1}" height="240"></a>

OR, skin/adapt/css/altskin.css

Replace...

.flexslider .slides img { max-width: 100%; display: block; }

With...

.flexslider .slides img { max-width: 100%; max-height: 240px; display: block; }

But it all depends on what type of server your hosting it on as if your with GoDaddy, HostGator and so on you might as well give up now. View the Demo Phil has, but keep in mind he (as far as I'm aware) doesn't have a good server at all and it performs very well. This was one of the key things he designed adapt for, Responsive, Speed and SEO.

Speed is based on a lot of things, how many images, categories and modules you have on at on one page at one time.

Default Re: X-Cart Adapt Template

Yes, the demo is on a shared server, nothing particularly special and all features are enabled.

Performance depends on the usual factors...

- How fast your server is, volume of traffic
- Number of template features enabled
- Number of X-Cart modules enabled
- Number of categories / products
- File sizes of your product images
etc.

Not only that, speed depends on how good your browser is and how fast your computer is.

We've used as few images as possible in the layout, to cut down on HTTP requests, the template makes use of the JS/CSS speedup tools.

There's plenty of other speed optimisations you can do, like Jack says, using a CDN is one of the best.

Enable GZIP compression, optimise your product images, combine images into sprites (we've done that to some extent in Adapt), make use of the 'optimization settings' in general settings etc. etc.

Loads of tips here - http://help.x-cart.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Performance_tips
