3 days ago I bought a 188.8.131.52 Magento template from templatemonster.com. It seems that they don’t give any support on the themes they are selling. So be aware of it. The way they have setting up the installation of the theme will give you a lot of problems.
This was my support request and their answer:
we bought this Magento template 2 days ago and found out some disturbing . First of all the template directory used is blank/theme132 and its own default directory, instead of the standard Magento directory /default/theme132. For this reason all extra items uploaded with Connect from Magento going to the default directory and are not installed. Magento advise in such case to copy the XML and the directory to the theme directory. If we do so the hole theme is corrupt. With the different modules cart etc. there are non Megento rules used so automatic translation doesn’t work. If translations files are loaded some pages looking different, because the length of the text of some buttons. In other languages text can 2 times longer then the standard English.
We installed this theme on a clean new loaded 184.108.40.206 Magento system with the sample data provided.
Please advise what the proper way is to use additional Magento modules without corrupting the hole theme. Just copying to the theme directory doesn’t work (Magento advise).
