    Hi Grtz,

    I'll need a little more info to help you but here are some things to check, is your site visible so I can look at it?

    I assume you are using the latest version of PG Simple Affiliate Shop and WordPress 3.5.
    The shop inherits the colour of your H2 element from your theme so do you have any other H2 headings that are showing?
    If you select the screen is the text there but the same colour as the background (ie when you say it's invisible - is it there but hidden?
    A assume you have entered text into the Title field on the shop and that in the 'all products view' in the admin it does not say '(no title)' - sorry if that sounds silly but I have done it myself.

    I assume you have set the type of each product as 'shop product' in the product types (banner advert does not have a title or text) and that you are using the [pg_sas_shop] shortcode.
    Have a look at http://www.peoplesgeek.com/2012/09/install-and-configure-pg-simple-affiliate-shop/ to see if that helps too.

    Try the site with the default TwentyTwelve theme and you will know if it is theme related - if it is theme related then you can override the CSS in the shop to better match your theme. If you use FireFox then something like https://getfirebug.com/ can really help you see what is going on.

    Let me know your results,

    Regards,

    Hi,

    seems I have the same problem on my site, just like andriolo. And it is related to the theme I have chosen. If I change the theme, then the headings and description will work/display just fine.

    You can check my site: here

    I am a complete novice when it comes to css, so If you could point me in the right direction on how/where to do the changes, it would be great!

    Btw, I love your plugin, just what I have been looking for! I've sent you a small donation.

    Hi Tommy,

    Thank you very much for the donation it is very much appreciated.

    Thanks also for giving the link to your site. I have looked and it does seem that the theme is choosing to show text as white on white so you can not see it.

    Install the FireBug plugin for firefox to play with CSS on the fly. I used it to look at your site and suggest this quick fix.

    This might have unexpected effects elsewhere on your site so do some testing after putting it in place:
    At line 292 in the file ....plugins\pg-simple-affiliate-shop\css\pg-sas.css
    you will find an entry that says:

    .pg-sas-product{
    	padding: 10px 0;
    	position: relative;
    }

    To make the text for the shop show up as black on white rather than wite on white add "color: black;" so it now says:

    .pg-sas-product{
    	color: black;
    	padding: 10px 0;
    	position: relative;
    }

    Also add an override for the header - you can try to put it in this same file as it seems to be loading last and should override the color in your theme:

    h2.item-title a {
        color: black;
    }

    This can have unexpected side effects elsewhere in your theme so you may want to contact the theme developer and ask them why they are showing text as white on white. There could be a good reason and they may suggest an alternative place for the css overwrite.

    These changes will also be lost if you update the plugin (you can move the css file to your theme root directory to stop this but then the changes will be lost if your theme is updated)

    If you need more help then perhaps you could set up a temporary logon to your site and let me know the details through my website contacts form http://www.peoplesgeek.com/contact/

    Please let me know how you go.

    Thank you so much for your quick reply! You provide excellent support for your plugin. I have yet to decide if I will choose your plugin, or Amazon PIP.

    Anyway, I hope this thread will help others if they experience problems with their sites if they use templates like mine. I've tested several Amazon pluigins and several of them have similar css problems.

    Good luck with your further development of your plugin, I will follow closely for any future updates.

    Thanks Tommy,

    I've revisited your site and all looks good now!
    I don't set colors of fonts or backgrounds in the plugin (except the button) as it would clash with a lot of styles for the many different themes that are out there. I use inherit so it should pick up the existing background or heading style from whatever theme you are using.

    Glad to see that it's all working now - if you have any other issues let me know and let me know the name of the theme - if it's available I can test with it but if it's a premium one I would have to get in touch with the author and see if we can work it out together.

    Best wishes,

    Brian (PeoplesGeek)
