    I think I posted this to the wrong group before. Anyway…

    I am attempting to replace the woocommerce setup wizard with a wp-cli version that does the same. According to this doc https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/installation-configuration/#section-11) the wizard does the following:

    A fresh install of the Storefront theme will automatically perform the following actions for brand new stores with no products:

    Import example products
    Create a homepage with the Homepage template (described in the next section) and set it as the static landing page in WordPress settings
    Apply a full-width template to display the cart and checkout pages
    Remove default widgets so as to showcase the Storefront widgets

    My question is in regard to how my page currently looks after attempting to do the stated actions through wp-cli. It doesn’t look quite the same to me as how the wizard leaves it.

    In particular, I have performed the following actions.

    $ wp post create –post_type=page –post_name=home –post_title=Home –page_template=template-homepage.php –post_status=publish –path=/usr/local/src/myHost.myDomain.com –url=https://myHost.myDomain.com
    Success: Created post 5.

    $ wp option update page_on_front 5 –path=/usr/local/src/myHost.myDomain.com –url=https://myHost.myDomain.com
    Success: Updated ‘page_on_front’ option.

    $ wp option update show_on_front page
    Success: Updated ‘show_on_front’ option.

    $ wp wc tool run install_pages –path=/usr/local/src/myHost.myDomain.com –url=https://myHost.myDomain.com –user=apb
    Success: Updated system_status_tool install_pages.

    wp widget delete $(wp widget list sidebar-1 –format=ids)

    Two issues (feel free to point out others) I see are 1) the category list only shows 3 categories and 2) it says “New In” – is that a complete phrase or was it cut off? If it’s meant to bring attention to newly arrived products, maybe “Newly Arrived Products” might be more clear?

    Anyway, what am I missing to finish the woo wizard setup through wp-cli please?

    Thanks in advance

    The “New In” text is correct: http://cld.wthms.co/Poe1GD. Only showing three categories is also expected: http://cld.wthms.co/HGez0h

    These can be customized with filters, or with the Storefront Powerpack plugin: https://woocommerce.com/products/storefront-powerpack/.

    Thank you for the clarification on the correct text.

    I suspect the majority of the community would agree that only showing 3 categories is TERRIBLE! There are several people who have already agreed because they have the exact same question. “Why does my website only show 3 categories??” This “feature” (showing all categories) was available in the previous version, please put it back!!!

    Filters? Why should anyone need filters to BROWSE through the categories to see what the store has for sale? That makes no sense. Filters reduce or restrict from the entire list. How can someone reduce the number of categories when all they see are 3 categories?

    Hi @apb1963,

    If you want an easy way to change how many categories show up, that’s why we made the Storefront Customizer! 🙂

    https://woocommerce.com/products/storefront-powerpack/

    You can read more about what is available here:
    https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/storefront-powerpack/#section-7

    Can the powerpack be used through wp-cli? If not, it’s utterly useless to me.

    Why isn’t there a horizontal scroll bar of some kind, so that consumers can browse categories? That’s a required feature if you’re going to limit the display to less than “all”.

    By the way… someone changed the status to resolved. I disagree strongly.

    It does not have WP_CLI integration.

    Storefront is a free theme that has many filters and hooks you can use to customize it to do whatever you want! We make some extensions to help people customize it in a certain way, but if you want to add your own custom features you can totally do that, too! 🙂
