Thanks guys!

To all that missed out on our introduction offer, you can still receive a 20% discount if your are an existing client. You will need to use discount code RETURNCLIENT when ordering. New customers can use discount code CCFORG as a CubeCartForums reader to receive a 10% discount.

I have also received quite a few queries regarding the Theme Configuration Panel that is included. We have created two short videos to demonstrate some of its capabilities:

Hi

Is it possible to change the skin colour and the slide show colour ?

How easy it is?

Is there a website using Blueprint V5?

Thanks

Hello,

If you're familiar with CSS, making changes to the color of the skin (including the slideshow) should be straightforwards. The skin's CSS is separated into several stylesheets, making it very easy to modify any component. As an example, the css/slider.css stylesheet file contains all the CSS for the slider. If, however, you do not feel comfortable editing the stylesheet files, we should be able to provide you with a quotation for any customization requested.

Regrettably, we can't provide links to any of our client's stores since this would breach our privacy policy. We have a demo store available: http://www.shopdev.co.uk/demos/blueprint/

Kind Regards,
Homar

I've installed the demo quite easily. Haven't had time to play with all the layout changes that can be made from within Admin - but that's an impressive idea!

I'm currently using a modified kurouto skin and am interested in using Blueprint AND my own skin (at least for now), because it will work with phones. I'd like there to be a link at the top of the page to change to Blueprint - with some way to designate it's appropriate for phones, etc. Any ideas for how to get the link there and for the wording? Can the name Blueprint be changed???

Possibly the easiest way to implement this is to add a link to the following URL:

CODE
http://example.com/index.php?select_skin=blueprint|default


Note that the select_skin parameter takes the skin's name followed by the color scheme. These are separated by a pipe symbol. A visitor navigating to this URL will see the Blueprint skin. This is essentially what the skin selector does.

Changing the name of the skin simply involves renaming the skin's directory and updating the <name> value inside of the config.xml file. After doing this, you will need to open the Theme Configuration Panel and re-enter your license key.

I tried your suggestion with the URL, but decided to go a different way. I backed up and deleted all the color choices in mykuroto skin except for myblue. I also backed up and deleted all the other skin folders except blueprint, and did the same thing deleting other choices from config.xml.

I edited the mykuroto/templates/main.php, moving {if isset($SKIN_SELECT)}{$SKIN_SELECT}{/if} to the top next to {$SESSIONS}.

Made changes to my skin and blueprint names:

CODE
<styles>
<style images="false" default="false">
<directory></directory>
<name><![CDATA[Mobile]]></name>
<description><![CDATA[Mobile Device]]></description>
<default />
</style>
</styles>


Then I allowed Customer to choose Skin.

I just noticed you said to change the FOLDER name - but when I tried that Fusion couldn't find the skin. It's working correctly with just the config changes.

You should just be able to rename the folder name after changing the config.xml file. For example, if you wanted to rename the skin to "example", you can use:

CODE
<info>
    <uid>example@shopdev.co.uk</uid>
    <type>skin</type>
    <name><![CDATA[example]]></name>
    <display><![CDATA[Your Display Name Here]]></display>
    <version>1.3</version>
    <minVersion>5.0.0a</minVersion>
    <maxVersion>5.0.*</maxVersion>
    <fusion>1.0</fusion>
    <creator>ShopDev</creator>
    <homepage>http://www.shopdev.co.uk</homepage>
</info>


Note that the value in the <name> tag should correspond to the directory's name. If Fusion still isn't recognizing the change in name, please submit a support ticket and I can take a detailed look for you.

Lastly, please remember to export your current settings from Fusion before changing the name so that you can import them after making the change.

ShopDev had it solved almost instantly. I had never deleted cache after changing folder name - once that was done it worked perfectly.

I am very interested in Blue print for the site qldwaterfilters.com.au

Do you have an invoice customisation options? In Australia the invoices have to be a "Tax Invoice" and state how much GST is in the total sale price.

Are there Australian sites that are succesfuling using Blueprint and complying with GST requirements?

Thanks
Nathan

Hello Nathan,

We have a few Australian sites running the Blueprint theme. I do not know whether they are complying with any tax requirements.
The amount of tax is displayed in the shopping cart during the ordering process, when viewing orders in the account area and when printing order receipts. You can see this in the screenshots attached.

Hello Nathan,

I have now made all the items taxable on the demo store. I have set this up to change VAT for customers in the United Kingdom. If you add an item to the shopping cart and proceed to checkout, you should see the VAT value added to the total. Note that this is only visible after specifying your billing address since CubeCart first needs to determine whether VAT is chargeable.

We offer 7-day free trials on all of our themes and plugins. You can order this through our website: http://www.shopdev.co.uk/cubecart-skins/blueprint-v5.php

Support is inclusive. If you encounter any issues, submit a support ticket and we'll work to provide a resolution.

I only sell in Australia so GST would always have to be on and ALL prices would have to inlclude GST, that is the prices listed everywhere on the site have to include GST.. i.e. if it's $100 + GST of $10 then it always has to be listed as $110 everywhere on the site.

and on the invoice and checkout the GST has be to shown so that people know what amount of the total is GST.

Will try and setup a demo license of CC5 and then test out your skin
