I just had a meeting with my web developer and she told me WooCommerce is stressing the heck out of her, specifically when you click on a product category, and the list of products comes up, the product images in the list simply do not display. She tried to research a fix, and showed me all the google searches she conducted wherein so many people have the same problem. To see if it was my theme causing the problem, she even created a test drive account on the WooCommerce site and ran into the same problem using a Woo Theme.
Considering the amount of time that has been wasted on such a ridiculous problem, I'm considering NOT going with WooCommerce. I should have known better choosing a free cart. Better to pay more and have peace of mind with a hosted cart.
