I’d suggest getting a template from ThemeForest if you don’t already have one and then read over the documentation as well as the documentation on Magento’s site. That will give you the basics of the platform and cover everything in your theme allowing you to get up and running.
You could hire someone to set the site up for you but you want at least some knowledge of the platform such as adding products, processing orders, etc.
I’ve been working night and day on a Wordpress theme for TF for a good while now, I’ve even brought in a couple of guys to help out with some areas to make the first release as good as possible. I’m becoming quite close to completion which means I’m going over one of the most important areas… branding!
So far I created an avatar and basic profile image but I’m not really happy with it. I also added a couple of lines to my profile but those will soon be updated. Does anyone have any tips for ways to improve my branding, or improve branding in general?
Look forward to hearing your responses.
Based on what you described am I correct in thinking you’re looking for a theme which offers functionality similar to that of sites like MyHammer?
Hi there, I am ready to transfer my WP siter from my testing host to my clients host.
Are there any good tutorials/screencasts that help explain how to do this?
I have a load of images and I would love for them to follow the site files and not get lost along the way.Thanks
If you are changing the domain too, are the images on your site uploaded using the WordPress uploader or a custom theme one? cuz if its a theme it might be a case where the image urls are saved in the db are absolute not relative. so when the domain changes, it will try to call images that are not there.
If you are not changing the domain, its simple task, move the whole wp files to your new host, then export the WordPress db and import it to your new host. After you import the db, go to wp_options table and look for ‘home_url’ and ‘site_url’ rows, and edit them to match your new site url.Edit the db info in wp-config.php file then login to the WordPress admin, on your new host, and re-save the permalink structure. and you are done
A lot of the time you find the images uploaded use the full path, the best way to resolve it is to use a search and replace on your DB prior to uploading to the new host.
I’ve noticed they’ve gotten more difficult lately. I don’t know if it is because the bots have gotten smarter, or if they have already run out of easy ones from the books they are digitizing. I have had to refresh a few times on the last couple I’ve done.
I’d say you were right with the first part, bots are becoming more advanced. I saw an article on it recently which was fairly detailed, I’ll try and dig it out + post the link.
Could you use an increment in the styled_columns function and then get it at the end with /style_table?
I’m only just coming across shortcodes so I’m not too sure whether that would work but it’s a thought.
Congrats on the success! Keep up the good work
The most convincing fake I got from PayPal was a supposed receipt for Skype. It said I had been billed £39 and looked pretty real. Hovering over the links shows you the real address before clicking it which is a good way to spot them.
Thanks guy, just sent mail to support
mail? to PayPal support?PayPal guys just send the copy paste reply based on your selected subject line! they dont even read emails! It is better to call them if you are wanting some real answer.
I’d second that, PayPal will send you a generic templated response regarding spam. For a real answer give them a quick call.
Check your theme’s file for the homepage, index.php unless its a custom home page template and look for “the_content();”, try replacing that with “the_excerpt();”
I can’t guarantee that will help as there are a number of possibilities but you tend to find the excerpt will cut off your content at a predefined number of characters keeping all at the same length.
