Hi, First of all I just bought this theme and I love it! The only thing I am finding is that my homepage will not use any of the widgets or the Home layout you have provided. I would really like it to work in a way that is not dissimilar to the live preview.

I have the home page template set to ‘widgetized’ I have used your suggested widget layout on the widget setup. I have products, categories and featured pics on to test with. Nothing working, any ideas?

(also how do I change the size of the featured pics on the shop page?) Cheers, LM

Sorry, I’ve sorted the main problem! However, I would still like to know where or how I can change the size of the shop images and how many are on a row please?

Hi, I love Handmade. It is working pretty well and setting up is easy and user friendly. I just got a problem with mailchimp settings: - if I use the text provided by mailchimp (the embedded sign up form code) and I try to put in a sidebar widget it doesn’t show the button to send the data (the subscribe button). It is completely missing. I try many different settings but nothing to do with. - I installed many plugins: MailChimp Plugin, MailChimp for WordPress Lite and Easy MailChimp Form. They work with API keys, but none works properly. I set the API key but the system doesn’t connect at all. It seems a problem with the theme. Thanks for any help! Elisa

Hi Dave, thanks. I’ve inserted the post in Handmade section Forum right now. See you there :-)

Thank you elisacerruti :) Vail (Head of Obox Support) will help you soooooon

Hello Obox team, I’m interest in purchasing the Handamade Two theme and use it as an eshop with WooCommerce, just one question. I see it is supported in Software Version WordPress 3.6, but the latest of Wordpress is 3.7. Does this mean I need to install the older version of it to make it work? Also the previous of WooCommerce too? And if yes, are you planning to update the versions soon in the future?

The thing is, I have already purchased Handmade’s first edition, which is now no more supported, and want to be sure I won’t loose my money again.

Thanks a lot in advance, best regards! :)

Hi Keira_girl

Handmade Two is 100% compatible with WP 3.7. I will update that copy right away, thank you for the heads up.

You only need to install HM 2. Version 1 is now obsolete.

Same applies to WooCommerce, you only need to install the latest version.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Hello, pre-purchase question for you

Great theme! Do you have an example or a screenshot of the home page that perhaps has text incorporated into it (maybe a quick welcome message, about, etc).

Also, are the docs available online to see how the backend and ‘widgetized’ home page works?

Thanks!

Tell me please, is the theme compatible with wordpress 3.8?

I posted the question on your support forum and I am waiting for your answer asap! Thanks!

Quick question I really love this theme, but I am curious if I have no need for commerce is there a disadvantage to just getting the original handmade template?

Default-user

thank you I actually found my answer on a previous post.

Hi, I love this theme but want to know if the ‘shop’ can be categorised via a drop down menu, so instead of going to the ‘shop’ page and everything being on one page, can the customer hover over ‘shop’ then choose from a drop down menu to direct them to the department they want to go to?

Also is it possible to have the front page as a welcome note? And also have banners/messages on the front page that are easily changeable e.g 25% off today etc?

All of this would need to be possible without code as I am rubbish! :0)

Many thanks, Kayla

obox

Hi Kayles27

1. Yes it is, you can customize the menu to do exactly what you require.

2. Yep you can do so with the home page :)

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Thanks Dave, sounds great :0) Going slightly off piste, do you recommend any plug ins to work with Handmade2 to enhance SEO, or any articles that might be helpful on the subject? Want to build it with the correct headings etc from the beginning rather than having to start again if i haven’t addressed SEO from the start. Thank you again for your help 80)

obox

We always recommend the Yoast SEO plugin :)

what is the issue going on with IE 8 with the columns its even visible on the demo page

Hi

Im thinking of buying this theme….just wondering though, I will be selling limited edition art prints, will this template allow for the amount of prints left available to buy to automatically update when someone buys one, and then show as sold out when they’re all gone?

Many thanks

Kayla

obox

Hi Kayles

Yes definitely, if you add a stock amount to each product then it will be listed as sold out when there are no longer any prints available.

Hope that helps, if you have any other questions please let me know.

Dave

I am working on the handmade theme for my employer who gave me access to her themeforest account to get a few things straightened out. The only issue I’m having is with the categories. There is an option to have them listed on the left hand side, but you don’t explain how to do that in the documentation and I can’t figure out how to do it myself. Can you give me some insight on how to do this? The page in question is located here: http://vickijeanbags.com/shop/ I need the categories to be on the left hand side. How do I do that?

Hi

I have bought handmade-two theme, and there are some issues.

1. Sometimes after refreshing pages, all labels are disappeared, like in this link:

Labels disappeared

2. After installing WPML, there are errors on woocommerce some pages (not included js files for other languages). See examples:

Error 1

Error 2

Error 3

Thanks in advance.

Default-user

I have corrected js errors by installing new wordpress and woocommerce versions, but there is one more issue in theme, there is no “Shop” template.

Thanks for response.

Is there a difference in purchasing Handmade Two through ThemeForest vs. purchasing it through the obox website? Besides the price?

obox

Hi Corizzo

The difference is that on Obox you get access to support for 12 months whereas if you purchase it on Themeforest you will get access to support for 6 months.

Dave

Hi A pre-purchase question. This is a lovely theme, is it only really best for ecommerce sites though? Is it OK to use without an online store or does that go against the way the theme is set up?

Thanks

Hi RoPadel

Handmade Two can be used as a regular site as well. eCommerce is not a requirement, here is a demo of Handmade Two without eCommerce installed: http://demo.oboxsites.com/handmade/
