ok…:) Feeleep I’m crazying beacause when i click on add to cart…it shows me an error…this “Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at postmaster@soloappunti.it to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.”

help me pleaseee :)

Have a look at theme manuals, “General Requirements”. If your server doesn’t meet it – you should talk to your hoster. Next, did you actually save Permalinks? After importing dummy data you need to go to
Settings > Permalinks
and hit that Save Changes button.

Either way, you need to speak to your hoster; ask for a server error log file out of which is sometimes very easy to ready when an error occurred and what causes it.

Other than that I can’t say/advise much. If WordPress doesn’t work properly – niter of installed themes will not.

Hi felleep! I’m very interested in buying this theme, however for my purposes it is vital that my customers have access to coupon codes that could be used in place of payment. Sorry if I’ve overlooked it, but is there that functionality included?

feeleep

Discount codes are supported by this theme and you can manage codes from theme Options page. It’s up to you to decide how to distribute/share those codes.

hi feeleep, thanks for answering my presales question for the stockphoto theme so fast, i decided to buy this one, but i seems to have one little issue.

When i imported the xml, all went ok, but i cannot buy one single image from the site (http://graf1cs.com) at all, i also tried to add a image of myself but it doesn’t work.

Did you try to register and login? It won’t let you buy anything unless logged in :) As for adding images … that’s strange, I’ve seen many images being added so I guess the problem was fixed meanwhile.

Thanks for such greatly detailed document ! Great theme. My question is why the upload is taking so long. My files are around 5 mgs each and I have high speed Internet ?

Cheers !

feeleep

Download and upload speed are never the same (or at least rarely). Most ISPs limit upload speed for several reasons, one of which it to prevent a small group of people from saturating the network with uploads. Besides, most people don’t upload much of anything, but download alot.

Thank you for your quick reply ! Also when I am uploading a photo, do I upload a small version for the thumbnail and then the zip file ? Trying to understand the file structure . . .sorry still trying to learn how to use this theme. Also, how can I give free download access ? I was confused on how to use the Discount Codes , do I create one that is 100% off . . . Many thanks ! Great theme great work

Yes, you do upload some kind of (eventually watermarked) preview version while the real file for download should be zipped up and uploaded along with new product.
Discount code can’t be 100% because PayPal will not allow you to check out with zero! Free downloads (Category, not a Catalog or a Page?) should be set out of e-commerce part, you can’t sell free stuff!

I reinstalled, and then everything worked fine, had a small couple of problems, but it is a great team. As i am selling images do i have to zip them up or can i just link the original images in teh products page.

feeleep

No mate, you’ll have to zip’em up! Just as it reads in theme Manuals! Product should have a file uploaded and this file is considered as item for sale.

Hello

this cart allows me to import products from XLS or CSV Files?

Thanks

feeleep

Yes but only in case you have PROPERLY FORMATTED xls or CSV files! You have to know that this theme is using custom taxonomy and custom post types (including Nivo slider) and slightly modified default WordPress table.

Fabulous theme. I’m almost kicking myself for not finding it sooner. It would have saved me a lot of heartache and grey hairs! Good job :)

Silly side note – Any chance there’s a way to offer coupon codes with currency discounts instead of just percentages?

feeleep

Thanks mate! As for using coupon codes instead of discount codes, it’s a little bit different story. Coupon codes might lead to checking out with zero and PayPal will not allow it.

The demo does not work…..

feeleep

I just have checked and it seems to be all right. Are you still unable to load the site?

Hi,

Will wp-deposit from codecanyon work with your theme?

Thanks, jens

feeleep

I didn’t give it a try so I can’t confirm.

Hi feeleep,

Before I purchase the theme I would like to know if this only supports one contributor(me) or can I assign multiple-users/contributors and select how much they are paid based on a sale of their image or digital file. Can I set the percentage they are paid and when they are paid?

Thanks,

Allen

feeleep

You are the only one making money out of it :)

HI feeleep,

Fantastic theme!

Is it possible for a programmer to add this feature at a later stage as AlStatic says?

Thanks

GD

feeleep

Thanks! And to be honest, if you can find someone as good as the one who built Envato marketplaces the answer is yes :)

I wanted to know if there is a function within this theme to allow for discounts and free download with a special code? so if i am selling a digital download those who have the code can get it for free and those who don’t have to pay?

feeleep

Discount codes are supported by this theme but you have to know that discount can’t be 100% because it leads to checking out with zero and Pay Pal will not let you checkout with 0!
As for free downloads, you can create some extra Page or even new category (not a Catalog, it belongs to e-commerce part) and publish stuff that can be downloaded free of charge.

HI Feelep,

Do you need the 3 file sizes for sale to be compressed in the zip? If so what do you call each file?

Or does the code work out the size for download

Thanks

feeleep

If you offer 3 different versions/variations of a file for sale then each instance requires its own ZIP to be uploaded. And of course, you don’t need to take care about file name because it’s gonna be renamed automatically anyway.

“Sofa DownloadShop WordPress theme is made to allow USERS to sell digital goods….” ! ‘USERS’, just seeking clarification in regard to this term, so does this mean that any registered users on the site can sell his/her digital goods and the sale($$) be credited to his/her paypal account?

feeleep

I guess it’s quite obvious that THEME USERS are the subject, not sure how to make it more clear. My apologies if that sounds confusing!

Default-user

Yes I understand that but what is not very clear is whether only the owner of the template is able to upload digital goods or is this functionality also extended to other [registered] users of the site. Which is the case? If other[registered] users are allowed to upload and sell digital goods, are they able to receive payments to their own[already setup] paypal account on the site? I hope my inquiries are much clearer now.

feeleep

No, website owner is the only merchant in the story while registered users can buy stuff.

IS there anyway to allow free digital downloads?

feeleep

As already mentioned; you can’t sell products for free, PayPal doesn’t allow checkout with zero! Free downloads have to be placed out of e-commerce … you can create Free Downloads page or Category.

Hello sorry for my bad english, i’am french, i have bought this wordpress theme, is nice; but when i transalte the interface there is a bug, numbers of declinaisons of pixel image are off, and after add to cart he price change in 0.00??? An another problem is about uploading massive photographies, i have 800 photos to sell, it’s possible to automatize importation and file exif information (tags,desription, dimensions, athor etc…)??? thankf you for your attention i waiting for your response thanks you

feeleep

I think the best way to puzzle out your english-french is to lemme know your site URL . I’ll take a look and debug in console. I don’t mind if you create a temp Admin account for me as well.

As for some sort of bulk import of photos … that’s hard to say. CSV file import to database should work fine but…
you will need to create CSV that follows database structure which, by the way, is not quite standard. This theme ads extra columns to existing table(s) and uses one extra table to store transactions.
I guess it’s up to you to decide which method is quicker/better for you.

Hi, I’m looking at the theme for a client. He want’s to sell photography stock in general but also needs to show stock images taken specifically for a certain clients where the category/page is password protected (so images are only available for the client to purchase) Is this possible with this theme? Many thanks.

feeleep

I guess you client needs some sort of private or user-personalized web shop but this theme is not something like that, sorry!

Hi feeleep, I’m seriously considering buying this item as I need to get a better solution for my online store this summer. I sell ebooks and books(hardcopies), question:

Can I sell ebooks and books (traditional hardcopies) with this shop? In other words, can I sell digital and physical products with this shop?

If not, I’m looking for a solution that handles both, can you recommend one?

Thank you in advance for your answer! Kind regards, Seb

feeleep

This theme is made to allow users to sell digital goods only and if you need the solution capable of handling both tangible and intangible goods – you’ll have to wait a bit. My plan is to release such theme in the next 2 to 3 weeks.
