CataBlog is a comprehensive and effortless tool that allows you to create catalogs, stores and galleries for your blog.
I wasn't sure about Catablog at first. But once I got used to it I found it to be pretty powerful. Using it as a viable store takes some work since you'll need to create new store templates to add option like size, color, etc.
I didn't like the fact that "store" opened up a new window so I had to fix that. I would LOVE a widget that makes the paypal cart show in a side bar. I would also like a "view cart" feature or link. And I would like to see or get help making subphotos show as a row under the main picture.
Another feature I would like to see is the ability for it to auto focus photos. Some photos look blurry as a larger thumbnail.
But as it is now, it works fine.
Just what I needed. A clean plugin without all the unnecessary bells and whistles.
Good plugin. Thanks!
This plugin is an indispensable addition to any product catalogue toolbox and a must for Anyone wanting to create a shop window in order to venture into e-commerce.
I would give it 5 stars but I choose 4-out-of-5 stars because, to my knowledge, the custom fields are not operational as yet. If I'm not mistaken the custom fields addition had been enlisted as a soon-to-be-added feature. Would be great to have them implemented in an upcoming version.
I would be willing to revise my rating and to provide a more comprehensive review when this feature-request has been addressed. Needless to say, the average star rating is significantly high and I do not think that my input can detract from the overall positive reception which this plugin seems to enjoy.
Good Luck with all future roll-outs!
I have tried many of the catalog plugins and keep coming back to catablog - it does what it is supposed without causing side effects.
Great plugin - I appreciate the effort!
Simply put...I tested 4 other catalog plugins for WordPress and none achieved what this one did. Within a few minutes, I realized this one had enough flexibility for me to make plenty of customizations with my fairly basic HTML and CSS skills.
The galleries display beautifully, the admin interface is logically laid out, and the author has taken a lot of time to document the various features and settings.
If you need a catalog, don't hesitate trying this one.
I love this plugin. So useful.
Nice plugin on wordpress!
