    Hi just a quick question, as I love your plugin.

    How can I use it in my own theme?

    Main question how do I see the product site/grid in my pages?

    (plugin installed fine, also the cart etc., but I like to integrate the shop page to my own site in my own theme)

    Thanks for a quick feedback!

    Hello mwerk,

    Have you had any luck with using this plugin with your theme?

    I would like to do the same thing.

    Thanks,

    OK,

    I now have Welcart working in a custom theme.

    The "short" answer;
    Copy the following folder
    \wp-content\themes\welcart_default\wc_templates
    And place it in your new theme
    \wp-content\themes\twentyeleven-child\wc_templates

    DO NOT EDIT THE PAGE PERMALINKS FOR THE CART AND MEMBER PAGES
    This will break the template usage. If you REALLY want to change the page permalinks you will need to modify the plugin core code.

    This will now effectively allow you to style the plugins key functionality pages.

    Next is getting the products out. By default I think it pulls them out into the blog.

    The best way for me was to create a custom template page. This is a little more advanced but does allow you to fully customize the layout and output.

    So I created a page "shop" and then had my custom template pull out all products/posts in the category "item". Then when someone clicked on the item in the list, it took them to the items individual page which was using the
    \wp-content\themes\twentyeleven-child\wc_templates\wc_item_single.php
    page.

    Anyway, this is hopefully enough information for anyone who has the ability to modify themes and plugins. For anyone looking for a plug and play solution then this plugin is not really it. It is a great plugin, there are some bugs and annoyances, but overall is perfect for my current project.

    Good luck!
    =-)
