    Ok, first off, I'm new to all this html stuff.

    Now for the good stuff:

    I am trying to write a store on my website and tried using Wp_ecommerce plugin and had too many bugs to deal with. I then found Dukapress and thought it looked easy enough, but because of it being such a new plugin, there is no support or how tos that are in english i can understand/figure out. Now I'm having trouble even beginning to start a product page. If anyone has any experience please help me.

    i read the "Creating A New Product Page" and I am now totally lost. The fact that i actually understood the wp-ecommerce plugin is a miracle to me.

    I don't understand what the format should look like and what does "fill in the blanks mean." I am so lost. haha.

    ok.
    so im playing around with it and i've gotten the price, drop down menu, and the name to pop up. But it's all very out of order. Can someone explain the category code to me.

    [dpsc_grid_display category=”1” total="12" column="3" per_page="4"]

    Like, where I should put it or should i change the numbers in the code in order to make another grid level.

    Please give me the link you're working off, I can help better that way!

    For this code:
    [dpsc_grid_display category=”1” total="12" column="3" per_page="4"]

    You have to put it in the page that you want the "grid" view to pop up, and then you get the category id and replace this category=”1” - replace the number "1" with your category id (which is a number).

    It will then show all the products that you put in that category in a grid.

    I believe all this would be easier if you installed the DukaPress sample data - you'll see what we did to make http://www.dukapress.org/demo work

    I'm still committed to make your install work

    and this is what i have in the page:

    Mustard Seeds
    [dpsc_display_product category="1"]
    [dpsc_grid_display category=”1” total="12" column="3" per_page="4"]

    ham
    [dpsc_display_product category="2"]
    [dpsc_grid_display category=”2” total="13" column="3" per_page="4"]

    and then, of course I have three custom fields. Two being a price, and one being a drop down menu.

    I am going to try and import the .xml file again. I tried it once but couldn't find the store in my page archive.

    Hmm a few problems:
    1. This shortcode: [dpsc_display_product category="1"]
    -It does not go into the page where you want the grid displayed, it goes into the actual product post. i.e. if one of your products is a ball, thats where this goes - it allows the "add to cart", "price" and images to be seen for each product. You would thus need it it present for each and every product in your store.
    -It also has no variables attached to is, it should just be "[dpsc_display_product]"

    2. This shortcode: [dpsc_grid_display category=”2” total="13" column="3" per_page="4"]

    Your use of this is super fine. Just make sure the category id (in your case "2") is the category in which you filed all the posts that represent your products.

    We updated our documentation covering short codes, perhaps it will be more useful: http://dukapress.org/docs/short-codes/

    We apologise for our previously shallow documentation. :(

    Also, please ensure you have only one DukaPress shortcode inside any one page/post.

    well. I just looked the doc page on Dukapress.com for the 20th time and found something i hadn't read before. Posts. I don't know why I haven't noticed it before.

    I'm am starting to get it though. If I understand correctly, the [dpsc_display_product] goes into a post that contains a product, but what should i put in the post to assign a product to a category?

    And no need to apologize, I'm new to all this and am sure someone with more experience would get it right away. I'm just glad your here to answer my questions.

    When you are creating the posts, there is a place to define the category just beneath the "Publish" button.

    I know it has something to do with my theme but do you know how to make the title regular font?

    @Naylorsbr: In your theme, the css for title is being applied to class title (.title). In DukaPress, the title is inside "p" tag with class title. You can apply a CSS for "p.title".

    i'm having trouble with this plugin - specifically the images. I get the following errors... does anyone have any idea how to fix it? Thanks in advance

    Warning: mime_content_type() [function.mime-content-type]: File or path not found in wp-content/plugins/dukapress/lib/timthumb.php on line 372

    Warning: finfo_file() [function.finfo-file]: File or path not found in wp-content/plugins/dukapress/lib/timthumb.php on line 379

    the paths to the files are good (absolute) paths.... are these functions deprecated? and is there something else in the works?

    hey guys! installed dukapress and loving it so far - glad i finally found the plugin i'm looking for (:

    i have a quick question regarding shipping options - how exactly would one go about filling up the "Flat Limit Rate", "Weight Flat Rate" and "Weight Class Rate" options?

    as far as i can understand, i'd need 2 values for "Flat Limit Rate" - one for the rate, and one for the limit, so how do i go about formatting this into the option field?

    @masterblaise, sorry for not checking back here. Do you still have this problem with the new version of DukaPress?

    the images are working thank you... however a weird thing i noticed was when i add an item to the cart on my order page and then click empty the cart, i am directed back to the homepage.

    is there a way to fix this? i don't seem to recall this happening before.

    this is the link http://URL/index.php?dpsc_ajax_action=empty_cart

    This may be because of a javascript error somewhere on the theme - and I strongly suspect it is this because I have had to fix themes for small js errors on this very problem

    When I go to post the payment details on the check out page nothing happens. I can clear the shopping cart of items and validate a discount code but Dukapress will not handle the submission of the check out button to the payment processor (Alertpay. Nothing happens at all...?

    @Moshthepit do you have any ideas as to why this might be?

    Is it possible to add a "Add to cart" button to each individual product detail page?

    @daveyc but that is already possible? http://dukapress.org/demo/products/softie-earings/

    @-Q- could you give me a link I see?

    ermm, my grid view isn't working for some reason. could it be my theme?

    also, on the product pages, the larger images overlap the thumbnails. like this:

    In the grid page, check that:
    1. your category ID is correct
    2. you have type="duka" in the shortcode ONLY if you used the "products" content type and not normal blog posts to make your products

    As for the images, what happens if you change their sizes using DukaPress settings? Also, you can easily manipulate them further via CSS

    adding type="duka" worked. thanks!

    changing the sizes under settings only changes the scale and not the position. which CSS file should I edit for this?

  29. moshthepitt

    the file is dp-basic.css in the dukapress folder

    if you "inspect element" on that page, you will see that everything has "css hooks" built in so all you need to do is add styling

    this theme: http://dukapress.com/blog/2010/10/21/introducing-twentyshop/ is a good example of how to style things
