Hi Matt,

Can we direct the item page to an affiliate link i.e amazon instead of using the add to cart function?

Thanks,

N

PixelStores

Hey,

Yes, you would need to modify the single template to disable the shopping cart function, (pretty straight forward) You could use the wordpress write panel in the admin and insert your affiliate links or another option could be to create a custom field for the affiliate link, a bit more technical there but can be done.

How to change main photo size in single-post template? and Maybe there is any possibility to have at least 5 product photos?

PixelStores

Hey,

To change the size of the photo in the single post you would need to open the product-single.php file located in the includes folder, scroll down to line 372, you will see this code..

<li><img src="&lt;?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?&gt;/timthumb.php?src=&lt;?php echo $thumb; ?&gt;&amp;h=261&amp;w=261&amp;zc=1" /></li>

Change the 261 numbers to your preferred dimensions.

Adding more product thumbnails is a little bit more technical, you will see a pattern in the code when you get to modify the product photo dimensions… you will need to add some extra code..

<?php $thumb4 = get_post_meta($post?>ID, 'Fourth Photo', $single = true); ?>
<?php if($thumb4 !== '') { ?>
<li><img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/timthumb.php?src=<?php echo $thumb4; ?>&amp;h=261&amp;w=261&amp;zc=1" /></li>
<?php } else { echo ''; } ?>

You will then have to make a new custom field in the write panel by modifying the custom field options.

I tried to do it before I wrote this comment. Timthumb correctly resizes the picture to my dimensions, but product-single still shows this picture scaled to 261px × 261px…

PixelStores

Hey,

Ahh sorry, i missed out something important, you will need to change the thumbnail/product viewer options in the header.php file. On line 32 you can set the correct dimensions, this code:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$(function(){
$('#example1').bxGallery({
                maxwidth: 261,
                thumbwidth: 52,
                opacity: .85,
                thumbcrop: false
            });
});
</script>

Change the maxwidth :)

Hi Matt,

Sorry if I am missing something; however, if I do not sign up as a member of the system and I check out it goes directly to paypal with out collecting my shipping address etc. This was with out logging in and also once I did log in with the demo account.

Wondering where the system collects this information?

Also, I logged in with the demo, but now I cant seem to log out as I thought maybe if I created an account it would collect my shipping address etc.

On the other hand, it would be nice to check out with out having to sign up.

Please let me know if I am missing something.

Thanks.

PixelStores

Hey,

Thanks for the interest. :)

Yes, Viroshop doesn’t collect any shipping information as PayPal covers this, it would seem unnecessary for the customer to fill out his or her details twice, if you understand.

Yes, it would be pretty cool, if the customer has to fill out some information before heading to checkout. When developing Viroshop i made a choice of customer registration or guest checkout, i choose guest checkout as its a faster transaction, however if you are familiar with wordpress you can develop Viroshop to allow customer registration.

You can do so much more with Viroshop with a little creativity, the details are stored within wordpress when the users signup, use a newsletter plugin that links to the wordpress database and woolaa you can start a marketing campaign. Just an example ;)

Encourage users to signup by offering member discounts, once they signup you have there email, you can cross promote your products. Alot of Internet Marketers only collect emails and send out a couple of newsletters a week and make a passive income just from email marketing, its all in the list ;)

Almost completed the coupon module, you could be creative and send out a coupon code everytime someone signs up, you can edit the “new registration” welcome email with Viroshop.

Its exciting times, look out for the coupon module, almost done :)

35 mins from registering the domain to going live! awesome.

having problems installing the plugins though. followed the instructions in the pdf which says put the in the plug ins folder via ftp. did this but they don’t appear in the wordpress admin.

wordpress admin has a install zip feature so tried zipping them up together and uploading but that didnt work. tried zipping them up individually but also returned the same error…says installed but then this

“The plugin does not have a valid header.”

ideas?

ok so you need to download them individually from the respective sites and install using the wp upload facility rather than ftp otherwise doesn’t work – well for me anyway…

PixelStores

Thats odd, did you upload them to the correct location?

You may have issues using the authors plugin as some custom stylesheets are used. I recommend you setup Viroshop via FTP , it works out to be alot quicker and its good practice.

I’m building a site for a customer who has a retail store (wholesale) and I like this theme very much. Although my customer does not want “their” customer to make “actual” purchases online. Basically, they DON ’T want customers to go through any payment gateway. What they do want is to receive an email notice of the order submitted by the customer, and then they will then follow up with the customer.

So the customer is reviewing the items they want to purchase, once the customer is ready to submit the purchase, this then gets turned around into order form that can printed and/or submitted as an email.

Any thoughts on this option?

Hi Matt,

While installing the shop, the directions it says to go to the “Theme My Login” settings and enable the “Custom Redirection” under the modules tab but as I go there, I notice that I don’t have this option in there. (?)

These are the options available to me under modules tab:
- Enable Custom E-mail
- Enable Custom Passwords
- Enable Themed Profiles
- Enable User Moderation

I uploaded the latest Viroshop files and tried the plugin from both your plugins.zip and directly from the wordpress download with out different results, so I’m a bit stuck on this and I (of course) hope I’m not missing something obvious here.

Hi Matt,

First of all; I like the design! I am wating for the coupon update, then I might purchase it.

I am from the Netherlands, and the payment methods are slightly different. With my shop I would like to sell to the whole world

I’ve read some comments but have 2 questions:

When I checked out with the mp3 player in the demo, I couldn’t choose my payment method. A dropdown menu or boxes would be handy to choose a method. (PayPal is not for everyone common)

Is it possible to let the custumor fill in a form of shipping information when they checkout? It can serve as “double check” and some costumors let other people pay because they can’t pay with the options. Also people who would like to pay with money transfer need to give their shipping info anyway.

I assume the shipping info will be send to the admin’s email when an order is made.

PixelStores

Hey,

Cheers buddy, yes the coupon module is in development :)

I completely agree with you that PayPal isn’t for every one, however they support a number of card types and the customer doesn’t need to have a PayPal account to pay.

When the customer checks out, PayPal provides a form for all the customer details, address, shipping address, name e.t.c. A notification is sent to your email that someone has made a purchase.

Hi Matt, great theme, and pretty easy setup. Possibly a silly question, but how do you exclude categories from the top navigation bar?

cheers

PixelStores

Cheers :)

Yes, you can exclude pages from the top navigation by going to the Viroshop Theme Options under “Navigation Options”

You can also exclude categories from the sidebar via the theme options.

Hi, Matt thanks for that, although I can only seem to get it to exclude pages, I cant get it to exclude categories. Any suggestions?

thanks again

PixelStores

Hey, you are probably getting categories shown on the top navigation because the blog category hasn’t been set in the Virshop theme options.

Only one category link is shown in the header and that is the blog category. :)

Hey Matt, just realized that, filling in the Blog page/category details eliminates the categories from the top navigation bar, which is awesome, but a small plain text ‘no categories’ appears over navigation bar instead, any ideas on getting rid of that?

thanks heaps

PixelStores

Hey, Try creating a sub category for your blog, such as Articles, you may need to create 1 post for the blog category.

Hi Matt

I’m adding my products and they appear at a top level, on the homepage, on the category pages but then when i click on them i’m getting an Error 4o4. Page not found message. Did anyone else get this? any ideas on why?

cheers

PixelStores

This is most likely caused by a Permalink structure issue, goto the categories section in wordpress and create a new category then write a new post and select the new category. Everything should work smoothly. You may have altered the posts “slug” and changed the permalink structure afterwards causing a “Page not Found” error.

I finally got my money together to buy the theme, and I noticed this.

http://b2.s3.quickshareit.com/screencapture1826010.png

Customers are not allowed to merely pay with a credit card! PayPal seems to be forcing PayPal account registration? What happened to the option of “Click here if you don’t have a PayPal account.”?

My client doesn’t want customers to have to have a PayPal account, but merely to type in their credit card. It’s a bit of a deal breaker. Can this be resolved..?

As you stated, “I completely agree with you that PayPal isn’t for every one, however they support a number of card types and the customer doesn’t need to have a PayPal account to pay.”

Advice?

PixelStores

Hey,

Click on the continue checkout link, you will goto a page that has forms for the customer to fill in, credit card, name e.t.c.

Within PayPal you can set the design for the checkout page but doing so, will remove the forms and are replaced with the “Continue to Checkout” link.

I recently changed the checkout template in PayPal, this is completely optional. If you want the forms for the customer to fill in on the actual checkout/shopping cart page of paypal without the “continue to checkout” link you can do so.

I will give it a couple of days for you to try and then will revert to the default template in the demo so you can see the difference between them.

It’s still forcing PayPal account logins, but I think the problem is the type of account associated with the checkout.

I’m used to PayPal premier business accounts, and I think the creativebits e-mail is associate with a regular account, so it’s forcing PayPal account creation before checkout.

http://b5.s3.quickshareit.com/checkouthelp7a0f0.png

That’s how I expected the checkout to look. One of those. I assume this is only because my account is “Business” and the creative bits account isn’t… So it says, “Sign up for a PayPal account and continue checkout.” Instead of “Don’t have a PayPal account? Use your credit card…”

Of course, if the creativebits IS in fact a Business account, then I’m not sure what’s going on there. Thanks for your response though!

How are users supposed to log out?

There’s no logout on the left login panel…

Or how do I disable the login panel all together?

hi

i thought i was going mad but i have just looked at your post response to someone else 11 days ago…........

‘No problem. I have taken a screenshot of the wordpress post section: http://www.lifeofstrange.com/tf/postpage.jpg The screenshot has been scaled down and is low in quality. faster loading and it is of this product: http://www.lifeofstrange.com/viroshoppro/accessories/2-gig-mp3-player/ The interface is very user friendly. Regards’

and realise i am missing some very important stuff! the whole ‘viroshop product attributes’ section that you show in your screen shot. I don’t have this. any idea why? is this something i have to install?

cheers

Love the site by the way. really slick.

PixelStores

Hey,

Glad you like Viroshop :)

Yes you have missed some important steps when installing Viroshop. Refer to page 3 for the product attributes.

this theme looks fabulous, sleek, logical.

One question - can it be used on PHP4?

thanks!

PixelStores

Cheers buddy :)

I haven’t tested Viroshop on PHP4 however if wordpress can be installed on this version i’m pretty certain Viroshop would function properly.

I’m surprised your host isn’t on PHP5 , i believe PHP4 had some security issues…

Regards

Default-user

cheers Matt, thanks for the reply – my host claims it has fixed the php4 issues, and moving to 5 could break my existing wp blogs, but maybe moving to a new host is the way to go anyway. :) Great theme!!

Great theme! 2 things…

My images are not showing up. I set the permissions on cache folder to 777 and still not working.

Also what is this “No Categories” on top of the Nav Bar.

See http://bellydonnas.com

Thanks, Gina Lujan WebifyLab.com

PixelStores

Hey,

Thanks for the purchase :)

Regarding the issues your having with the thumbnails, your best bet is to experiment with different path locations for the image urls and see which one works for your host.

Another solution is to find the image which is likely to be: http://www.domain.com/wp-content/uploads/image.jpg

Instead of using the full domain name, shorten the url, like this: www.domain.com/wp-content/uploads/image.jpg

or

domain.com/wp-content/uploads/image.jpg

This should solve your problem, another way to speed up the process is to upload your images in a folder within the theme folder and use an even shorter url path,

/product-images/image.jpg/

The “No Categories” text in the navigation is displayed because you need to create at least one post for your blog/articles category.

Hi,

Is this for the E-COMMERCE plugin for wordpress?

Nel

PixelStores

Hey,

Viroshop has an in-built ecommerce solution, however if you wish to use third-party plugins that integrates with Viroshop this can be done. You would need to remove some code that disables the current shopping cart functionality and include the authors plugin code.
