Hi there – I’m very interested in buying your theme. My existing website uses the Gold Cart plug in. Is it as simple as uploading and activating your theme and making a few changes to the settings to get it to work? Or would I have to completely re-enter all my products again? Thanks in advance…

Thanks for your message! From what I can see, it should be possible that you keep all of your products since you’re obviously already using WP e-Commerce as well as the Gold Cart plugin.

You might have to adjust some of the settings in WP e-Commerce and WordPress itself in order to complete the setup successfully, but that should affect the products itself.

The only thing which could happen even though I’m not entirely sure yet would be that the product image dimensions won’t work immediately, i.e. if you’re currently using different product image size settings in WordPress, then WordPress already generated suitable thumbnails using these dimensions — the Storefront theme however most likely got different settings here and so it could be possible that you’ll have to upload them again.

There might be a way to just regenerate the thumbnails from within WordPress or WP e-Commerce as well, but I have to admit that I’m not aware of it myself.

Aside from that, it’s usually recommended to create a copy of your current setup first — maybe even locally — and then try to switch themes in a safe staging environment like this just to make sure everything works as expected.

This is something I’d highly recommend always because it’s never impossible that something can go wrong and so it’s invaluable to be able to restore live data.

That said, I hope that I could answer to your question so far. From what I can see, it should be possible and comparably easy to switch themes even though you might have to adjust a few settings here and there to make it look properly — creating a backup or trying it in a sandbox environment is highly recommended though.

Thanks for your feedback – much appreciated. I’m still deciding which theme to go with :)

You’re welcome! Please feel free to take your time and just let me know if you should have any further questions meanwhile! :-)

hello, does this theme have the capability to upload images? where a client can upload their own design.

Thanks for your message! Unfortunately I don’t think this will be possible or at least I have to admit that I’m not entirely sure if WP e-Commerce supports something like a user image upload option out of the box.

If you like me to and if you’re sure that WP e-Commerce supports an image upload option, then please just let me know about it and I’ll have a closer look at this myself in order to confirm that the theme supports it as well — if it’s a custom function not included in WP e-Commerce itself, the theme definitely doesn’t support it though.
