I just purchased this theme and I am very disappointed. It is a very ‘bare’ theme. Can’t believe its priced so much for what is. Probably the simplest and most ‘non functional’ theme I’ve purchased so far. I would caution if you looking for a theme with a lot of functionality and ease….

Understood. I’m in the school of thought, as are many WP developers, that all of those items that other theme offers should be left to plugins. Pippin sums it up well in his article here: http://wp.tutsplus.com/articles/general/functionality-plugins-vs-themes/

Good luck with that….

Thank you!

How do I update the theme without losing all my products I have added? I have version 1.0

Updating the theme won’t cause you to lose any of your products or any content. It only updates the code of the theme.

Hi, I am having a problem when clicking check out, It keeps saying this:

Invalid Mijireh Configuration In order to use Mijireh, you must enter your Mijireh access key in the Cart66 Settings Panel or use the WordPress page editor to replace the gateway shortcode on your store/checkout page with the checkout shortcode for the gateway you intend to use.

All I want to use is PAYPAL to accept payments, How do I set this up?

This has to do with the plugin, not the theme. You should contact Cart66 support if you continue to have issues.

The problem you’re having is that you have the Mijireh shortcode on your checkout page, you need to remove that and replace it with a PayPal checkout. You can learn more at the Cart66 website.

I’m about to purchase the theme and I just wanted to make sure that the theme supported widgets in the sidebar ares like for a facebook like box, etc.

Sure thing!

Having some issues. I created a topic on your website for help!

Sounds good! We’ll check it out!

This is a great theme and integrates very well with both Cart66 and Gravity Forms. I also really appreciate how white-label it is, super easy to customize!

Well done.

Awesome, thanks man! I really appreciate the kind words!

Hello Thanks for the theme. I bought it for my ecommerce about 3 months ago. I like it, it suits mu business very well. However I’m concerned about the last stages of checkout. We have put different shipping prices for different areas of the world but it seems to me that if someone (after entering their country from the drop down menu) doesn’t update the total before he clicks on the payment gateway button and gets transferred to the payment gateway website to pay; well that person won’t pay the correct shipping price. Is this a basic flaw or is there a way to automatically correlate country and shipping fee at this stage?

Also, are the latest products I put on the website the ones that will appear on the home page or can I rearrange the order.

Thanks for the kind words! I’d appreciate a 5 star rating on the theme if you haven’t done so already. Here’s how to do that.

The latest products you put on the site are the one that show up on the home page. If you want to change the order, you can change the post date of any of the products in your dashboard to reorder them.

As far as the checkout, that has nothing to do with the theme. That’s 100% the Cart66 plugin. You can go to http://cart66.com and they’ll be able to help you with that over there.

Again, glad you’re happy with the theme!

Hello! I am considering purchasing this theme as I am using Cart66 for a client.

Usually I use Genesis Framework for my sites, however I am trying to get this E-Commerce site done as quickly as possible.

My client does not have any pictures at all for their 200+ products, so the JQuery hover feature is not really needed for this site.

My question is: what are the benefits of this theme in integration with Cart66? This website will need to rely on my styling because there is no product pictures. Is it easily to customize via creating a child theme (will need custom BG, header, etc. I know CSS/ HTML, little PHP)? Will this theme help with the “styling” of individual products and save me some time?

Great. I see what you mean. 2 more questions: Can I add custom sidebars? (I need one for her products and a separate sidebar for her contact page)? And I see you say there is a “counter” on the top that counts how many products you have in your cart. Is there a way to have the user click the “add to cart” button and not be taken to the checkout page?

Also, Is there ability to make static homepage to add my own slider?

There are sidebars for pages, the blog, and product listing pages but there are no sidebars on single products.

I believe Cart66 itself has the setting of what happens when Add To Cart is clicked. By default, the user is not taken anywhere when Add To Cart is clicked.

The home page as seen in the demo is what’s included in the theme. If you’d like to add a slider you’d need to do so on your own.

How do you display latest blog posts on the front page? It is only showing Products…

That’s not an option in the theme. You’d need to customize it to display the latest blog posts.

If you need help with it, please open a thread in my support forum http://support.designcrumbs.com

Is this theme compatible with Woocommerce? Or has that never been tried out before?

I found the answer in previous comments. Thank you.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I’m searching for cart66 theme and come across this theme. I always wanted to ask, cart66 is wordpress based, so basically any theme should fit, what is the different between this cart66 theme and other wordpress theme? Pls provide some real example


You’re correct. The difference is that this theme designs all of the elements that Cart66 puts onto your site so everything looks cohesive.

The product page has a specific area for the Cart info and the product images whereas a non-cart66 theme would display them just like a normal page or blog post.

This theme also has a cart link with a product counter in the header.

This theme displays products on the home page, has a dedicated store page, and dedicated archive pages for products. Any other theme only has standard posts and pages.


Bought this theme several months ago. Have already stated that I am pleased with the theme but I will reiterate that this is a theme worth buying. My question is whether it is possible to create a page called gallery, where I can put 10 photos (5 on top of 5) on the page to showcase some of our products? Do you need to do some specific coding or is it just not possible?

Thanks for your help.

Building a gallery is just default WordPress functionality and works regardless of theme. Here’s a page that explains it http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-create-an-image-gallery-in-wordpress/

And you can rate the theme from your downloads page: http://themeforest.net/downloads

You can only rate full stars, so 4 or 5. Hopefully the latter ;)

Yea Thanks for that quick response. Thats perfect . Put a quick 5 stars because of good customer service as well. Cheers

Awesome. Thanks!

If I was to purchase the theme, is it possible to add 12 images instead of the 10 on the demo mode? And instead of 5×2 can I do 3×4?


You can put as many as you want on the page (and archives) but you can’t change them from 5 per line unless you rewrite the CSS.

Also, I’m finishing up another theme for Cart66 Cloud that will be available early next week.

Ok cool, maybe I wait for that one then. Thanks a lot :)

Still a work in progress, but here’s a sneak peek: http://dcrmbs.com/7xmd

shhhhhhhhhhhh ;)

How can I upload a logo on the theme?


Make sure you have the Options Framework plugin installed, and then it’s under Appearance > Theme Options.

Thanks a lot – it is a very nice theme & I recommend it to everyone:)

Last question: In the demo, in the menu, when you click on store there are some sub-categories – how did you create them?

I tried by creating some parent pages but it did not work.



And the actual subcatagories in the demo are Product Types and Product Tags. If they don’t show up on your Appearance > Menu page, you may need to enable them under the screen options tab on the top right.

How do I add the Cart to the top right side as in your example? Thanks

You need to add in the link to your Cart page under Appearance > Theme Options > Store Settings.

Hi, thank you for your great theme ! Nice job !

Is it possible to export the product list ? I need to save it !

Thank you

I’m guessing you want to export the product list with the price and all that, right? That’s part of the Cart66 plugin, not part of the theme. You’ll need to contact them http://cart66.com for assistance.

If that’s not the case, let me know a little bit more about what you’re trying to do.

Hi. I want to make the thin line below the menu dotted. Is this possible? Thanks

Hey. Could you PM me [e-mail removed] a quote for how much you would charge to do it? Thanks.

Also is it possible for the cart to display in different currencies and have other methods of payment… e.g.. A Visa card and not just Paypal? Thanks

Cart66 Pro and Cloud accept different forms of payment; The theme simply styles the plugin, so you’ll need the plugin as well. The free version of Cart66 (Cart66 Lite) only accepts PayPal.

I sent your other comment to Envato staff so they can remove your email address :) If all you want to do is make that line dotted instead of solid, it’s literally one word you need to change in the CSS. We can help you with that in my support forum at http://support.designcrumbs.com – If you’d really like us to just do it for you, you could fill out the form here: http://support.designcrumbs.com/customizations/

Hi. I’m having an issue with the shopping cart being responsive when I shrink my screen down to phone size. See image here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rrkv0f7olqm1xko/responsivecartissue.png

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you!


It looks like you customized the theme and something broke it in there? I know I didn’t include that font in the theme ;)

Please open a thread in my support forum http://support.designcrumbs.com and leave your link, we can help you over there.

Will do. Thanks!

Hi there. Would the Woo Themes Currency Selector Plugin work in the Cart 66 shop? Or can I just use a Woo Commerce shop. Sorry a little new to the whole e-commerce side of things. Thanks

Hello! Sorry, no. The theme only works with Cart66. It’s not designed for anything Woo.

Hi I need help, I don’t know if you can help me, I have everything set up everything is working except the sales tax are not add to the PayPal page before I pay? And I setup tax in my PayPal account and the tax are showing on cart66 but not charge by paypal. I call paypal but they said it’s a problem with WordPress. And Cart66 said it’s a Paypal problem???? Idon’t know what to do, do you have an idea? Thanks

Oh jeez. That sounds like a complete nightmare. I’m so sorry!

I found a solution, instead of using paypal express checkout, I deleted API infos from cart66 Pro and use Paypal checkout, now it work perfecly. Yeah ! The support at cart66 and Paypal is not helpful at all. By the way ,thank for your so beautiful and simple to use theme ;)

Ugh. Well, glad to hear you got it worked out and now I know if anybody else asks! Thanks for checking back in!

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” ? HELP!

Also I read somewhere but now can’t remember where, what size should the logo be in order to appear crisp on pc and mobile but not too large? I tried putting a logo in place of the title text and refreshed and it was the size of my screen. But I thought I remembered you saying somewhere that it should be larger in order to appear clean and crisp. Thought it would auto resize but didn’t. Thanks for help!

Ah, I see that Blog Archive thing… It’s a bug. I’ll put it on my list to fix.

The logo can be any size, I recommend 80px tall for retina.
