    When trying with the theme "BootStore" and trying to view a product category i get a broken page which shows the product category title and that's it. It also removes the admin bar for some reason. With most other themes its OK.

    Any tips?

    Some themes are designed to work specifically with their ecommerce plugin such as the woo themes or the ready ecommerce themes. Trying to force one of those types of themes to work with MP Lite is probably not a good idea. Although I have tested MP LIte with a couple of woo themes without enabling the woo commerce part and it worked ok. But I believe there is an overhead cost to doing so. Plenty of themes around that MP Lite will work with. Suggestion is to GTMetrix or pingdom.com test some for speed before using them because there is a certain amount of slow down with MP Lite enabled. It would be great of WPMUDev would test the plugin and speed up the parsing order of the calls and set a cache header expire too or make it easier to set those.

    Not necessary to sort anything out. But I appreciate the offer. As I said some themes such as the Ready eCommerce themes are designed to work specifically with their own shop cart plugin. Some of the woo commerce themes are more oriented toward the woocommerce cart plugin.

    I have testes MP Lite with both ready ecommerce themes and it just does not work as well as with regular WP themes. Plain vanilla or eCommerce ones. Same with some of the woo commerce ready themes.

    Often the image settings in MP Lite conflict with the image settings in the themes is what I have seen in my testing.

    I am going to use MP Lite with Virtue a woo commerce ready theme. Because this theme has an easy to use admin setup compared to some others I tested. The home page slider appears to allow, if not unlimited, a large number of images in it.The thumbs appear good compared to my twentyten theme test and text is crisp. Found the Virtue in in of Raylene's reviews.

    Another one I tested and liked was Weaver II.

    All this said, go ahead and close this thread out.
