PHP File? (9 posts)

    I want to edit WooCommerce's individual product page PHP file. However, I can't find WooCommerce's PHP file. Where on Earth do I find it? It is *not* under Editor with all the other PHP files. Do I use the WordPress dashboard interface, or do I have to go through my Bluehost dashboard?

    My website is trialofthecentury.net.

    I know a little bit about all this stuff, but I'm still a total amateur---if your explanation is technical, please try and dumb it down for me.

    WooCommerce works with Child Themes; copy the template and paste it into your Child theme directory. Then you can edit it there. Do this through FTP.

    Thanks---but I have absolutely no idea how to do that!

    Can you give me a play-by-play?

    No...no it doesn't.

    I'm not trying to be rude here; I know you're trying to help. I just don't know what "FTP access" is, nor do I know how to access "wp-content/themes/canvas/." It's all total Greek to me.

  6. There is a learning curve; just have to jump in and try it.

    This is a walk through on how to use FTP: http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients

    The link posted by Andrew is everything you need to know about making a child theme of Canvas. Then you add the Woocommerce files you want to modify to the child theme. See http://docs.woothemes.com/document/template-structure/

    I just don't know what "FTP access"

    Use the Google. You can learn a lot that way about almost everything, especially regarding web development.

    Okay, I've been learning a little FTP. Tricky but not as hard as I figured it would be.

    Isn't there an easier way to do this? If I install the plugin via the WordPress dashboard, can't I access the CSS stuff through the .php files by way of the "Editor" tool?

    Once you upload a child theme, then yes, you can edit its stylesheet through the editor. Just select that theme and then its stylesheet.

    You shouldn't run into too many problems this way if you are only editing CSS. Editing PHP files can be a lot more problematic.
