Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » [Plugin: WooCommerce – eCommerce plugin for WordPress] Template problem

  • Some shop pages (all products, single, category) change my theme layout, e.g. my sidebar is replaced with the standard one and is outputted below the shop content instead of on the right side. Also the footer is resized. One of the developers of the theme (Atahualpa) I use wrote:

    “Atahualpa sets a global variable ‘$cols’. I would guess that WooCommerce is using that same variable and not resetting it to it’s existing value. You should contact the plugin author about this.”

    Can you help with this?

  • I have a very similar problem, it seems.

    I’m using the InStyle theme from Elegant Themes and on the product pages the layout’s totally messed up, with the sidebar underneath the content and the featured image stretched out, et cetera — generally, a mess.

    I’ve looked at the WooCommerce User’s Guide but everything seems so simple; not sure why images are not working properly, being forcibly stretched out no matter what setting I poke at. I even looked at the WooCommerce Codex and copy-pasted the snippets of code they offered to no avail.

    Interesting, the cart page is just fine!



    In the changelog of 1.1.2 is stated:

    “Renamed $columns global for compatibility with certain themes”

    Unfortunately the problem still persists…

    Any solutions to this issue yet? I am having the same issue. Also having an issue of product just not showing up at all in the “shop” page.

    I had the same problem and found the solution here.
    This is what removed the sidebar

    Unhook (remove) the WooCommerce sidebar on archive pages

    add_action(‘wp’, create_function(“”, “if (is_archive(array(‘product’))) remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);”) );
    Unhook (remove) the WooCommerce sidebar on individual product pages

    add_action(‘wp’, create_function(“”, “if (is_singular(array(‘product’))) remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);”) );
    Unhook (remove) the WooCommerce sidebar on all pages

    remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);

    I have the same problem as Aminka Ozmun….
    I kind of understand the hook thing SoulOn Fiya but I just don’t know where to place the code…which file I need to add it to, in which folder…..
    I’m fairly new at wp and new to code too!!
    I am using a Pleng (themeforest) and building my site locally.
    I have dreamweaver and good old text edit as far as programs are concerned.
    Could anyone point me in the right direction… to a video… tutorial ….or be totally amazing and tell me.
    Pretty please 🙂 ….

    Open up dreamweaver and look for the functions.php file in your Pleng theme folder. I added it towards the end so before the ?>. You also can add // WooCommerce before it so you’ll know where to find it in the future. so it would like this;

    // WooCommerce
    add_action(‘wp’, create_function(“”, “if (is_archive(array(‘product’))) remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);”) );
    Unhook (remove) the WooCommerce sidebar on individual product pages

    add_action(‘wp’, create_function(“”, “if (is_singular(array(‘product’))) remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);”) );
    Unhook (remove) the WooCommerce sidebar on all pages

    remove_action( ‘woocommerce_sidebar’, ‘woocommerce_get_sidebar’, 10);

    Hey SoulOnFya,
    Thanks heaps for taking the time to reply!!!
    Unfortunately it didn’t work, it seems that all my content on the woocommerce pages still look like they are in the header section and are still messing up my layout… 🙁
    Oh well, guess I will keep trolling the internet to see if anyone else has the same problem and has found a solution.
    Thanks again!!!

    I am having this same problem with a customer’s site. They are running graphene theme and it moves the sidebar to the bottom of all pages. I tried the above fix by editing the functions.php file and it killed the site giving a 404 error. I had to reload wordpress because as many times as I tried and different ways to re-upload the original functions.php, it would not resolve itself.
    I’ve contacted the owner of woocommerce and we are discussing over email. Hopefully they can build in a robust bit of code that prevents this from happening.

    Anyone else?

    that’s weird cause it worked for me. I’m using the hybrid theme so the set up might be different. Are you guys making changes in a child theme? That’s the safest way. Theres usually a folder within you theme folder called includes that my contain additional functions.php files. You might want to look in their.

    Hoping somebody with more experience with this could hop on and add more input.

    So which functions.php file is accessed through /wp-admin?
    Isn’t that the child theme file?

    If you have a child theme yes. I just know some themes have a an includes folder sometimes that have a functions.php file but that not the case for all.

    I’m testing another theme to see if I can figure this out and still googling more solutions. My biggest issue with woo commerce is not being able to assign a page template like my regular pages.

    woocommerce causes the same issue with Thesis and some other themes, which I have tried. Did anybody find a solution to it? Thank you

    you only could fix it with using a childtheme of woocommerce styles inside your theme folder. here is described how:

    not a very good solution though, because unfortunately you have to upload that folder over and over again after every update.

    the other mess is, that woocommerce loads tons of css, js and so on, when i open my website. what slows it down. would be better if woocommerce only loads styles and scripts when needed.

    This solved the problem for me 🙂

    The last post is about Jigoshop. Even that I learned that they are similar, I don’t know, how to adopt the code to get woocommerce running with Thesis. Can anybody help implementing one of the suggestions? Please pm to THX!
