    hi
    i have installed the plugin wp-shopping-cart but everytime i try to make a new post i get:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/mhd-01/www.noiduepercaso.com/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/wp-shopping-cart/shopping_cart_functions.php:42) in /home/mhd-01/www.noiduepercaso.com/htdocs/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 694

    Is this possibly WP E-commerce at all?

    p/s: I haven't tried any ecommerce plugin, but I've just found one called Yak for WordPress which is a simple shopping cart plugin.

    From what I've read on the forums, support for WP E-Commerce isn't that great...

    Thanks, staceppa :) I will look forward to finding out if it works out. As far as I know, the plugin is being actively developed, so I imagine it should be quite easy to get in touch with the developer as well.

    i don't know for what reason but now the wp-shopping-cart is working.
    i swear i have not touched anything at all, i did not install or remove any plugins... for some magic now i don't have any problems with wp-shopping-cart
    although i have to say that support for this plugin does not exist at all!

    Glad it worked out for you, staceppa. Aside from blank lines (right at the top of the file) I couldn't think of anything else really.

    There is no reason not to use WP e-Commerce. It is by far the most feature rich and matured wordpress e-commerce plugin.

    Anyway I was reading a support noitce on another site today for a different plugin.. they said before you post a bug try it with the default theme first and check to see if the problem still exists.

    Also check the WP e-Commerce forums, they are packed full of information and there are good people there supporting the community. The support people care about our users.

    And on other news....

    We are proud to announce that the WordPress e-Commerce Plugin is now a certified Google Checkout Advanced Integration (Level 2) shopping cart provider. The advanced integration provides the most features and tightest integration between WP e-Commerce and Google Checkout possible. This means that all of your settings such as shipping rates, taxation settings, and discount codes are fully supported while your customers are checking out with Google Checkout.

    Ciao,

    Dan

    staceppa - the first guy to look out for with problems with wpecommerce is Shayne on the forum ... top guy and will try his hardest to iron out any probs and is brilliant at custom jobs too !!!.
    Any serious bugs need to be reported in the right place on the forum and they will most probably fix this for the next ver or if too serious email them direct.

    I'm not a wp ecom pro just someone who has had a lot of experience with the program . The program does sometimes hit bad patches but the ease of use , editing, overall features and cost of the program do out way for most of the time the problems that i have experienced.

    It is essentially a feature rich e-commerce program that bolts onto wordpress and yes it can sometimes use parts of wordpress other plugins use.
    My honest advice and this is something I'm going to do in future is treat this program like a stand alone program with its own wp install.
    Install it on a fresh wp install use the existing theme and link it in to the blog. The program has its own widgets and i'm sure with a little tweaking these could be worked into the original WP install.

    Hope this helps !!

    Thanks for the info, Graham :) It's really good to get a balanced view from someone who has worked a lot with a particular plugin, especially something that seems so powerful!

    I would check out the forums, but they seem to be offline. Having some odd problems with my items not appearing on the 'Product Page.'

    I was told by Dan earlier that the site had just switched servers so expect inconsistency for a couple days.

    Another option to consider is the e-shop plugin - not as "fully functional" as wp e-co0mmerce, but I've been able to put together some test designs that I think look as good or better than wp e-commerce.

    As far as wp e-commerce being the most feature rich plugin, that really depends on what you consider feature rich. When people's shops are going off line for days or more at a time due to non-existent support, and a new, undocumented set of problems that accompany every single upgrade...during those times, WP e-commerce is hands down the most feature-LESS shopping cart on the entire internet.

    Permalinks continue to be an ongoing problem, complicating site integration and SEO ...and it appears to me that the amount of javascript that accompanies each cool site 'feature' holds the potential to make page-loads so slow that potential buyers will be able to go to another site, make a purchase, drink some coffee, and have a smoke before the wp e-commerce online store actually shows up on the screen.

    This plugin has potential, but the developers' sole reliance on a guy named Shane to provide all documentation and support, coupled with their annoyingly cheery dispositions in their rare forum posts, makes the whole operation smell like its not completely above board.

    Despite statements that there is no reason not to use this plugin, there are in fact SEVERAL reasons not to use it, and there will continue to be more, as there is a slow-growing body of competitive alternatives that provide better support and a lower risk of lost revenue due to implementation problems.

    I just came here looking for support on how to integrate HTTPS and found this thread. I have to say that WP e-Commerce is stunning.

    My site loads in miliseconds, there was certainly no time to make a coffee or go have a smoke (yuk habit anyway).

    I downloaded the latest version of WP e-Commerce. Installed it as per the instructions and it just worked. I have installed WP e-Commerce on the following servers with no issues:

    - Debian Etch
    - CentOS
    - IIS

    So anyway I just checked out the instinct forums for some advice on how to setup HTTPS and found an article on how to do it. http://www.instinct.co.nz/forums/topic.php?id=1020

    Awesome!!! Thanks to Shayne and Arbie!!! Oh and thanks to Tom & Allen and iKool and Mike and all the other people I saw actively contributing on the forums contributing :)

    netpup: I'm really sorry you have had a bad experience. We really do try our best and we're always doing what we can to improve WP e-Commerce. I believe its the putting right that counts - if I can help you in anyway please email me directly, I'd love to hear what you think we can doimprove our plugin.

    hazmat: you da man!! (or you da lady!!)

    Awesome WP e-Commerce Plugin Information

    1/ The WP support forums have been moved to a faster server in the USA. Things are much faster now.

    2/ Shayne is just one of many great support people floating around in the forums. He's writing the book but many other talanted people are there to help.

    3/ Netpets will love this one. We're gong to switch to UI instead of interface very very soon. This will speed up things big time - WP e-Commerce will not need any Javascript other then the JS that comes with WordPress in the first place.

    4/ This year we removed a ton of Javascript from loading. Things only load when the owner of the sites "wants" them to load.

    5/ There are no Permalink issues!!! WP e-Commerce is SEO friendly, we've worked with lots of experts to ensure that we are SEO optimized.

    6/ Full <div> layout coming soon. Bye bye tables.

    7/ WP e-Commerce is Level 2 Google Checkout Verified!!

    Ciao,

    Cheery (but teary eyed) Dan

    Hi
    I am using the e-commerce plugin on a site and noticed a major bug:

    When you go through checkout and are taken to PayPal if you do not complete payment with PayPal your order is still listed in the Purchse Log and 1 item is deducted from the number in stock.

    Has anyone experienced similar issues? any help please?

    Sam

    I'm sorry, but I have had nothing but problems with the wp-ecommerce plugin. Someone from Instinct contacted me and was helping me for a bit and then I never heard from them again. I uninstalled the plugin and then REinstalled it again only to have the same exact issue (I can't create a product, nothing happens).

    I am going to check out the documentation to see if I can find a solution to my issue because as much as I complain I really trully just want it to work as it says it does because it has so much potential.

    I seem to be having a conflict between eCommerce and wp-forums.

    If only one of them is active it works fine. If I activate both, one or the other returns a blank page.

    It seems the forums change the page url's for eCommerce.

    If I dont use the forums, eCommerce works perfectly. I do wish there was way to set shipping on a total order rather than individual items though.
