I´m having trouble installing the theme on wordpress… When I put “upload theme” it shows me this following message:

“Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.”

How should I procced? How do I get this stylesheet?

I don’t know where to find my purchase code…so I am not able to leave comments on your support page

I tried to find it at my license folder inside the dowloaded commerce theme folder but i still don’t find my license certificate.. :(

You can find your License Certificate code on your download page on ThemeForest called “License Certificate” for Commerce, see this https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16816912/nesia/off/item_purchase_code.jpg

I can’t find the HTML files. I don’t use Wordpress but Dreamweaver and to make my own design I need these files. How can I get them or where can I find them?

Thanks a lot!

Hi cego,

This version of Commerce is indeed intended for WordPress theme.

If you’re looking for the HTML version, you should see this item instead: http://themeforest.net/item/commerce-business-and-online-store-template/2413531


Where can I download the latest update?

In addition, in the last version of Commerce 1.3.1 which have just been released, we’ve included a sample of Child Theme for Commerce.

You can find it under the theme folder which has the name commerce-child/

You can start using it as your base Child Theme for Commerce.


Thanks for all the information. I’ll try that:)

You’re welcome, ElainL.

Don’t forget, if you need further assistance for Commerce, please don’t hesitate to go to our forum http://support.nesia.me

We’ll be waiting for you.


I was looking to create a website on the topic of Pipes like half pipe. Does your theme support back end operations other than us? What about plugins?

Hi kimmarshall66,

Commerce is actually only a WordPress Theme, means that we put our consideration mainly on how your site is going to look.

But the functionality of the site, or in your term, back end operation, is mainly handled by the core WordPress.

We noticed that the sample site you’re giving to us is an e-commerce site. To achieve this, you’ll have to install an additional e-commerce plugin for your WordPress site.

We recommend to use WooCommerce http://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce/ and Commerce has fully supported this plugin. You can see at our demo here: http://demo.nesia.me/?theme=commerce to see if the theme suffice your requirement.

If you’re looking at another similar theme which support WooCommerce, we also recommend Shoppinggo http://themeforest.net/item/shoppinggo-wordpress-ecommerce-theme/4571164

But of course, the choice is in your hands :)


FYI – The current script.js in the commerce-child/js has bugs and should be updated to reflect the one in the parent theme or just load the parent theme version and remove it from the child. Product sliders are broken until one figures out that it is not the same version as the parent even though it says 1.0 also.

Hi i3inary,

Thanks for your feedback.

Yes, you can copy the js/script.js from the parent to use it on the child theme. Then you can start modify the file from there (or just use it if you don’t need to customize it).

We’ll check the script.js file in the child theme and update it if needed.

Thanks again for your report :)



I would like to use Shop Masonry for my site just to showcase a pinterest like ecommerce site but the thumbnail isn’t showing up and I tried to find various tutorial on the web and their steps doesn’t really reflect exactly the file name as in the theme so I have trouble setting up WP Post thumbnails.

Do you have a more detailed doucumentation on how to set up the thumbnails step by step ?


Hi whitevox,

First, please make sure that you are using the latest version of Commerce. Currently, it’s on 1.3.1

Second, if you need to read the Commerce documentation you can go at http://demo.nesia.me/wp/wp-content/themes/commerce/docs/index.html

And last but not least, if you need further assistance, please post it on our Support Forum http://support.nesia.me

Don’t forget to give your live URL and/or screenshots to describe your problems in details, so our team will be easier to understand your problems.


Hi, I have a pre-order question. Does the theme support standalone ‘registration page’ and ‘my account’ page? since i didn’t see any from the demo. And also how about ‘track my order’ page? I see these pages in other themes but not in your theme. Love your theme btw :)

Thanks, Nabil

Hi Nabil,

The template pages you asked came from WooCommerce plugins, so the answers are yes, it’s included in Commerce :)

For “registration page” you can see it at http://demo.nesia.me/wp/commerce/my-account/

For “my account” page, here’s the screenshot (you can see it after you login, of course): http://awesomescreenshot.com/0cd1e9omb1

And for “Track Your Order” page, you can see it at http://demo.nesia.me/wp/commerce/order-tracking/

Hope it helps.

Sorry…It seems I need my purchase code to subscribe. Can you provide it?

Hi Sergi,

You can find the Purchase Code on your download page at ThemeForest.

It’s placed under the main Download button next to our item (Commerce). See this screenshot for better picture: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0f21d0o49a



I like the theme, but can we get you guys to do customization for us?


Hi trendspot,

We’re really sorry, but currently we didn’t receive any theme customization request/project, because we have our own timeline/schedule to follow.

We’ll let you know as soon as we are available again.

Thanks for putting your trust in us.


I got question about addthis share buttons on item page:

1. Whose addthis account are they connected through, i mean who gets to see statistics.

2. How can i put my account instead so i can monitor all sharing on my site myself.


1. It might happen that the framework was updated after the new version released. This framework is used in all of our themes, so sometimes we updated it separately for all themes.

2. Similar as above. Not every customers of us need the shortcodes. And sometimes, when there’s a bug, it’ll be easier for us to give the updated version in separate release, instead of re-package it in every themes of ours.

Hope this answers your curiosity ;)


it does :)

I got one last question, it should be simple, how to change color of CTA button, if i do .btn-cta i can change button color and hover color but those stacked up borders like duplicates of button i cant change, can u help so i completely uniform it in new color. thank you so much.

Cheers mate!

hi tightwhenin,

Could you give us a screenshot and point this CTA button you want to change on your site URL?

We need this to make sure we didn’t misunderstood your request.

Thanks in advance!


Is Commerce set up to handle multisite Wordpress with many users having their own “store fronts” where they sell their own goods similar to Etsy? Also, can you use it to sell digital products?

Hi tenace,

Commerce works best with WooCommerce plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woocommerce

And currently, WooCommerce do not have the capability to make a site similar to Etsy, so the answer is no, Commerce couldn’t handle it.

For selling digital/downloadable products, this feature also came from the plugin. You might want to read the plugin documentation first, to see if they fit your requirement.

Particularly, you might want to start from here: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/managing-products/#section-6

Hope this helps :)


Still after all this time no dark version ???

Hi nrsglamour,

We’re really sorry. But we still haven’t had a plan to release a dark version of this theme in the near future.

We’re still considering all aspects and try to fit it in our timeline.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a theme which has a light and dark version, you can check on our other item: Shoppinggo http://themeforest.net/item/shoppinggo-wordpress-ecommerce-theme/4571164

We’re really sorry for this inconvenience.


can this theme be boxed?

Hi jase2423,

What do you mean by ‘be boxed’ ? Could you explain in more details or give examples with what you mean by ‘be boxed’ ?


Something is missing in your demo site. It’s not working! I checked out your demos site the other day and it was fine. You must have changed something.

Wanted to let you know. Also How do I get in touch with you? I want to buy the theme and also want to do some customization.

Hi ehsani1,

The demo is working fine right now. You can check it at http://demo.nesia.me/wp/commerce/

Thanks for letting us know anyway :)

For the theme, you can buy it here at ThemeForest.

And we really sorry, but currently we don’t accept any theme customization due to our schedule and timeline.

But you are free to customize the theme by yourself, of course.



I’m wondering how I can remove the “About 10 days ago” text that shows when all of my products had been uploaded.


Thanks, Scott

Hi Scott,

Please open your includes/theme-woocommerce.php file. Go to line 106 and try to remove/comment this script:
<time class="datetime" datetime="2012-04-01">'. sprintf( __('About %s ago', 'nesia'), human_time_diff( get_the_time('U'), current_time('timestamp') ) ) .'</time>';

If you need further assistance, please post it on our Support Forum http://support.nesia.me

We’ll be waiting :)


Lovely theme. Awesome support. Enough said.

You guys are awesome! :D

Thanks for the nice words, Nabil :)


I see an update is available (version 1.3.3). Is an update to the changelog coming soon?

Hi ask4fish,

You can see the changelog in our documentation here: http://demo.nesia.me/wp/wp-content/themes/commerce/docs/index.html


Hi there Nesia,

I need to update the framework, but it gives me “Failed: mkdir Failure” message. I have have visited your support page, but it only says that the WP install should be writable. My WP instal is writable an still get this failure.

Please have the NesiaFramework included here on Themeforest or downloadable through WP pugins or your website, because the way it is now it is not working.

Hope to have the files soon, so I am able to work with a functional theme again.

Kind regards, Isidore

Hi Isidore,

Have you confirmed to your hosting provider that your theme folder (usually it’s ../wp-content/themes/commerce/) is also writable ?

But okay, we’ll soon release the updated version of Commerce which contains the latest framework. It might be around the end of this month.

In the meantime, we’ll try to figure it out what causing this issue.

Thanks for reporting to us, Isidore.


Hi Nesia,

Thank you for your reply. I have writing ability over my installs (thank god!)

Hope you get to figure out what is causing the issue and solve it for the next update. Looking forward to get it ;-)

Kind regards, Isidore

Hi Isidore,

We have just released Commerce 1.4. This version includes Nesia Framework 1.2.0.

If you need the latest version of Nesia Framework, we recommend you to update to this Commerce version.

Hope it helps.


HI, i miss the hove-list effect on the top menu when i use custom page as frontage. This effect recover when i click into the other menu link. Would you help to check this? Thank you very much. Please see http://company.edatamacau.com/

Hi kinwai,

You can try to put this script on your style.css:
.post-list .product .post-header:hover img, .single .product .post-header:hover img, .page .product .post-header:hover img {
  opacity: 1;
  filter: alpha(opacity=100);

.post-list .product .post-header .entry-link, .single .product .post-header .entry-link, .page .product .post-header .entry-link {
  display: none;

And please, if you still have more questions, please post it on our Support Forum http://support.nesia.me


HI, May i just remove the “add to cart” button? I think “see this item” is necessary for the mobile version. Thanks again. Regards, Kinwai

Then try this code instead:

.post-list .product .post-header:hover img, .single .product .post-header:hover img, .page .product .post-header:hover img {
  opacity: 1;
  filter: alpha(opacity=100);

.post-list .product .post-header .add_to_cart_button, .single .product .post-header .add_to_cart_button, .page .product .post-header .add_to_cart_button {
  display: none;

Feel free to modify the code as your needs.
