Responsive Classic Contemporary Silver Template

This template includes no additional plugins.

This template is simply the stock Classic Contemporary Green Template with added CSS to give it a more modern and up to date look and feel. 90% of my business relies on my template designs therefore do not expect a masterpiece but I wanted to bring a responsive template to the community so here it is.

I added (2) separate features to this template that weren't included in the Responsive Template Default package.

1.) The Category Tabs Menu Drop Down Select @min-width, this is a great learning tool to use for swapping out one look for another depending on screen size.
2.) Div Style List Display for the product listing page, this is a good example of how to convert HTML tables to divs.
2A.) This does limit your display option in List View, altering the sort order will also require altering of the CSS width %.
2B.) ADMIN > CONFIGURATION > PRODUCT LISTING Default should be set to Display Product Image = 1, Display Product Name = 2 and Display Product Price/Add to Cart = 3, the rest can have any value but will appear under product description, row headers will aslo appear under the Product Image, Item Name and Price headers allowing the sort functions to still function.

The ONLY (4) files needed on the catalog side are within the (common folder).

I included code to disable left & right column on the login page and right column on the shopping cart page. That code can be removed or added to be altering the includes \ templates \ responsive_template_default \ common \ tpl_main_page.php file.

You do need to (RUN) the sql_patches.sql code in your admin (Tools > Install SQL Patches) to add a configuration to activate the responsive code (Doing this overrides the stock Column Width - Left/Right (Boxes) configuration).

I have also included the ADMIN layout_controller.php file (which is optional), this will allow you to hide/show side boxes at min-width from the ADMIN > TOOLS > LAYOUT BOXES CONTROLLER page. (THIS IS A CORE ADMIN FILE)

If you choose not to use the side box min-width controller you do not need to include the ALTER TABLE query code within the sql_patches.sql file or the (2) column_x files within the modules folder.

This code has been tested by others and myself but doesn't mean you will get the same results. Please remember going responsive alters the layout in many ways and many (APPEARANCE) plugins will most definitely need CSS tweaking.
