    @Au Coeur , thank you for getting back.

    I have now successfully installed the plugin. And apart from the simple sidebars as you mentioned, it enables me to choose a full width layout on the product page.

    But, the only issue now is that, the product image size is too BIG. I have tried everything I can to set it to a thumbnail size but it is not working.

    I would be very grateful if you could give me some direction on how to have the product image display in a thumbnail size. The link is : http://afroscandic.com/product/magazine-second-edition/

    Ok. But, do you use “genesis connect plugin” for these sites:

    http://WWW.danceypantsdisco.com and http://WWW.hydrexphilathropic.org.

    And are there many disadvantages not to use it?

    @Au Coeur, thanks for sharing those beautiful websites. I have now decided finally to go for WooCommerce and I just installed few minutes ago.

    I am using the old version of Streamline Version 1.0.1 must it a must that I need to place add_theme_support( ‘woocommerce’ ); into the functions.php file?

    Thanks. I just checked Easy Digital Downloads plugin and I can see that they have a lot of tutorials to make life easy and I would want to give it a trial.

    But, am still checking to confirm if I can also sell light physical product like a print magazine with it.

    Does anybody know?

    @Summer, you are very right – there are many variables that would determine the best option. And at the same time, as I need to look at the present need, I need to think of the future as well because, it’s challenging to change from one plugin to another, most especially for people like me who are not good at coding. But, I would give you a little insight into where we are now and where we might be heading to.

    We have a media platform with some readers and we have just released second edition of our print magazine. So primarily, we would like to be able to sell both the print and digital magazine from the website.

    And since we also have a plan to use the opportunity to sell physical products to our readers and probably to allow some people who might not want to pay for advertisement both in the print magazine and on the website, to place their products on our website, so that if people buy from our website, we get commission for each sale.

    So, I might say that it will be for : Digital – to sell both the digital and the print magazine, and as a media platform, we might be able to place books from other authors for sale, and we might want to sell tickets for events etc

    And for Physical products : we might want to sell physical products to our readers, which can attract more readers to the site and vice versa. We intended to place the ecommerce under a menu called “Marketplace”

    And it’s difficult to answer these : “use, performance, support” because, I would say all 3 are needed, as am not good at coding, I need something easy to configure, we want a relatively good performance, and with good support as well. I would also like a payment processor that can accept credit card for people who might not have a Paypal account.

    Somebody suggested WP eStore and when I checked it on their website, it looks good with the one time fees of $50 but, I am not sure how true the features will function.

    Thanks for giving more insight into this.

    What I mean is to configure it. Not when it is fully configured. Am not a coder or good at design and I would like very simple way to set up any ecommerce that I would go for.

    My Question :
    Being aware of WooCommerce “price tactics”, but would I still be able to use the free features to make a simple but complete online transaction – product appears on my website, somebody can pick it and add to shopping cart, and pay to complete the process? with a standard Paypal wihtout any extra cost on add-on?

    OR should I go for : WP eStore that is only one time payment?

    Thanks for sharing this.

    And finally on making a good choice for an ecommerce plugin.

    Being aware of WooCommerce price tactics, but would I still be able to use the free features to make a simple but complete online transaction - product appears on my website, somebody can pick it and add to shopping cart, and pay to complete the process?

    Otherwise, may be I should look at “Easy Digital Downloads”, where somebody here in the forum said this”Easy Digital Downloads is great if you don’t have a full blown eCommerce site and just want to sell some digital products.” – Brad Dalton though in April 2013, which might not be still be true now.

    And some people also mention Cart66

    What can you say/advise finally on making a good choice. I just need something simple that would be almost free, but that would complete a transacting process.

    Hi Notsandbolts,

    I can see that you prefer Cart66 but, when I went through the review, am confused about what people are saying. One is this :
    “Most of the people that are rating the plugin high have an expert level knowledge of coding and/or are coders themselves. I know this is true because I’ve visited some of their pages – their experts and/or developers themselves. So of course working with this would be a piece of cake to them.”

    Would you still recommend it? Or should I go for “Woocommerce.”

    Please advise, I need to set up an ecommerce on my site.

    Thanks.

    But, I read a lot of negative comments about BIG problem people encountered whenever they update the plugin with a new update. The review is here : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/woocommerce-plugin-is-destroying#post-

    Please, what can you say on this and advice?

    And

    Is “Genesis Connect for WooCommerce” a Genesis plugin like other Genesis plugins? or it just bears that name?

    That’s great. Somebody told me about WooCommerce plugin. Which one will you personally recommend between Easy Digital Download and WooCommerce plugin ?

    Thanks, Anita. Is it the one you use where you display “Free Download” on your website? Or do you also have it else where?

    Thank you so much. It worked. So, I can use the Jetpack for CSS customization without touching the theme codes.

    Just a quick one if you can help. The time displayed “on the site” is different from what is in “Admin>General setting”.

    I choose custom and am using this : l, F jS, Y g:i a

    Right now it shows : “Friday, January 31st, 2014 2:02 pm” in the “Admin > General”

    but, on the “website”, it shows : “Friday, January 31st, 2014 12:53 pm”

    What can be responsible?

    Thanks for this help. Yes, am using Jetpack. Should I place

    .topnav-right {
    display: none !important;
    }

    anywhere after :

    /*
    Welcome to Custom CSS!

    CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a kind of code that tells the browser how
    to render a web page. You may delete these comments and get started with
    your customizations.

    By default, your stylesheet will be loaded after the theme stylesheets,
    which means that your rules can take precedence and override the theme CSS
    rules. Just write here what you want to change, you don’t need to copy all
    your theme’s stylesheet content.

    Thanks but, I would like to know from you if you have tried something like this before because, I don’t want to start getting errors on my site. I would only want to do it if there’s 100% guarantee that there will not be any problem, since it’s a live site that is running now.

    Is there no other way that Studiopress theme has for removing this? either in their tutorial or in the beginner’s tutorial?
