Amazing WP e-Commerce

Description

Whilst developing a theme for WP e-Commerce, have you ever thought why there’s a template file for a list and a grid view, even though it is disabled in Store settings (Settings – Store – Presentation)?

This plugin will enable Grid and List views and will let you to customize the grid view as it is presented in Store settings. Those settings are: Products per row, Show only images, Display Variations, Display Description, Display “Add to Cart” Button, Display “More Detail” Button.

If you have ever looked into wpsc-single_product.php file then you probably have noticed the Gold Cart plugin function in there and it does nothing. Well, I have added functionality for it. With this plugin installed, you will see additional product thumbails under the main thumbnail (screenshot 1).

Also it comes with a fancy extra feature: Extra Thumbnails. If your product has more than the featured image, then you can go to products page (catalog) and hover over the product thumbnail. It will load the extra images and start a slideshow.

Screenshots

  • Gallery (additional images) thumbnails under the main thumbnail
  • Gallery thumbnail settings
  • Extra Thumbnails being loaded in Grid View.

Installation

  1. Upload amazing-ecommerce.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use WP E-Commerce simplified functions as you need and enjoy extra features
