We setup a few (14 to be exact) different eCommerce solutions for WordPress to test and evaluate for our use and WP Online Store is great except for one MAJOR flaw. It breaks something in EVERY theme we have tossed its way. If we disable the cart plugin (or remove it’s shortcode) the problem goes away. It breaks menus in some themes, it breaks footers in others. Obviously we can’t have a website with no navigation, so the menu breaking is unacceptable and the footer being broken is a HUGE issue as well. Has anyone else experienced this? Should we try a clean install again?
An uninstall and reinstall of the plugin seemed to fix this. We will see if it breaks again.
Have you found a solution to this? i uninstall and reinstall but did not work, is it possible to change the original code so it doesn’t override the theme code?
If you see what appears to be random characters at the foot of your store it is because you have some other content on the same page as the store shortcode. You cannot have any other content on the store page.
As for the store breaking footers or other parts of a theme, I have two guesses at this;
1) There is a CSS clash. The store uses a stylesheet based upon the 960 Grid System. If the theme uses the same system then they will clash.
2) In rare cases the theme uses some of the same ‘code’ as the store which may cause conflict. For example a theme may uses ‘tep_parse_input_field_data()’ which conflicts with WP Online Store use of the same code. (This is a random example as there are may lines of code which could be the possible cause of the conflict.)
It is also worth noting that the conflict itself may be with another wordpress plugin and not the actual theme.
