Suffusion Commerce Pack aims to provide support for common e-commerce plugins in the Suffusion theme. The purpose of this plugin
is to deliver any template and stylesheet modifications that are needed to get the e-commerce plugins to play nicely with Suffusion.
Currently the following e-commerce plugins are supported:
Support for more plugins will be added in the near future. The one on my radar at this point is WP-ecommerce.
You can install the plugin through the WordPress installer under Plugins → Add New by searching for it,
or by uploading the file downloaded from here. Alternatively you can download the file from here, unzip it and move the unzipped
contents to the
wp-content/plugins folder of your WordPress installation. You will then be able to activate the plugin.
- Are there any other plugins that you will support apart from the ones listed?
Yes, I do plan to support the more common and popular plugins so that they work seamlessly with Suffusion.
- But I want my plugin to be supported for Suffusion immediately!
There are instructions provided on the settings page for the plugin about how to get any template working with Suffusion.
These should help you port any plugin over. Feel free to share your code with me and I can get it added to the core.
- Do I need a child theme?
This depends on your e-commerce plugin. Some plugins like Jigoshop or WooCommerce (which is a Jigoshop fork) offer hooks. Where possible
the Suffusion Commerce Pack makes use of these hooks, eliminating the need for special template files. However some other plugins such
as Prospress offer templates that need to be copied over for customization. In such cases you are better off running the Suffusion Commerce
Pack against a child theme. The plugin provides you with appropriate advice either way. If you need a child theme it tells you to create one,
otherwise it goes about its task silently.
- Are there any known issues?
JQuery improperly, then there might be issues getting the plugin to work. This isn’t a problem with the Commerce Pack, rather it
is a problem with the plugin that is improperly including JQuery.
