    O.K., I've added a few products to the database but nothing shows up on the website yet. From the FAQ I see it says:

    "Use the trigger text to add a product to a post or page where u want it to appear."

    Can't find anything to generate "trigger text". Help please?

    Hi Scratch,
    2 ways you can do it, if you are adding a product on a post or a page.

    1. Use the shortcode [simpleecommcart_add_to_cart id="prodcutID"] in your post or page, make sure you replace "productID" with the actual ID of the product which you will find in the Product List.

    2. Simply choose the blue shopping cart icon from the post/page icons and select your product and insert it in your post/page.

    Can you show list of shortcodes I can use in my posts?

    there are only 2 shortcodes for Simple Shopping cart

    one is for showing product
    [simpleecommcart_add_to_cart id="prodcutID"]

    other one is for showing the cart

    [simpleecommcart_show_cart] //show cart in the page
    [simpleecommcart_show_cart mode="read"] //read only cart
    [simpleecommcart_store_home] //used in the store page
    [simpleecommcart_store_category id="categoryid"]

    Thanks to everyone who helped. I'm still learning of SE but now getting the hang of it.

    How do I adjust the the image margins on the items in my store? The image is aligned left, but the text describing it is flush against the image and looks strange. I've tried adding custom CSS to the containing DIV of

    .imgContainer {margin-right:10px;}

    but then the text doesn't wrap and is on the bottom of the image.
