I just purchased WP eStore and am trying to tweak it to work with elegant themes eStore
theme. The problem is their theme works out-of-the-box with the 2 options below and not with WP eStore.
1. Simple PayPal Shopping Cart
Does anyone know if you can get WP eStore’s plugin to work with the “Add to Cart” button of elegant themes eStore theme?
The problem I am running into is the that Add to Cart button is pulled from the CSS file and is not unique to each post/product. I have 8 products and am kinda stuck on how to integrate the two.
PS. Here is the theme -> http://elegantthemes.com/preview/eStore/?p=16August 11, 2010 at 1:03 am #23236
I know that it works with the simple shopping cart so I am pretty sure that we can make it to work with eStore too.
Can you please explain a bit more on how the “Add to Cart” button is pulled from the CSS so I can give you some clues on what to do with eStore (maybe some CSS tweak will do the job)?August 11, 2010 at 7:00 pm #23237JakeyMember

I was able to haxor it all up… lol and got it to work.

i am also having this problem. any tips?February 3, 2011 at 4:09 am #23245
I haven’t really used that theme so don’t know much about it. Can you please ask the author of the theme for a “3rd Party Shopping Cart Integration Instruction”? I should be able to read the instruction and find out what needs to be done.February 5, 2011 at 3:57 am #23246
I posted immediately after your answer but I haven’t gotten a response. Maybe you can take a look at how this particular theme works?February 5, 2011 at 3:54 pm #23247
I looked for documentation that came with the theme and this is all
At the moment I am using the the product pages that come with the theme as blog pages as that is the only way I can remove the “ADD TO CART” that comes with the standard theme.February 6, 2011 at 8:09 am #23248
The readme only tells you details about that theme. It doesn’t have any information on how to integrate a 3rd party plugin.
The developer should be able to give you a link that explains how to integrate a 3rd party plugin.February 19, 2011 at 3:48 pm #23249happychesMember
I’m also trying to figure this out. Since I followed their link to the WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart Plugin, and thought the premium version “WP eStore” must’ve been a perfect match because they had the same name, oops. I didn’t actually consider that it was a different plugin and wouldn’t work. Looks like it might be just easier to use the free version for this particular site instead as I don’t have time to figure this out.
However in case someone else is keen to get it working, their docs don’t have anything about “3rd Party Shopping Cart Integration”, their support forum is full of complaints about being ignored (their lack of documentation is why they have thousands of posts in there anyway) and their search feature on their forum is broken at the moment
One person has responded to their request though and it’s located here:
(you might have to login to view – I’ll try and post their instructions in the next reply).
One person responded that it messed up their site by following those instructions but the rest of the people who responded said that it works for them.
In relation to the shopping carts, their docs just state:
eStore it self does not include any ecommerce functionality. Instead, we have made an effort to make our theme compatible with some already-existing and widely-used plugins. In not building the theme around a specific ecommerce platform, it also becomes much easier for the theme to be used with a wide array of plugins. That being said, we have pre-integrated two plugins, either of which will be the easiest to use.
1. Simple PayPal Shopping Cart – This plugin is refreshing in its simplicity, but also lacks certain features found in other plugins. If you are looking for a really easy way to get your store off the ground, this is probably the plugin for you. The plugin will automatically use the price settings defined with each post from within the ET Settings, and the “ADD TO CART” button on each post page will work automatically as well. All you have to do is configure the plugin’s main settings and you are good to go.
2. eShop – This plugin offers more functionality, but also requires more configuration to set up. After enabling the plugin, you will see a new set of options (labled “Product Entry”) added to each post under the text editor. You will need to fill out this information for each post, and then check the “stock available” option. After you have input the product information, you will notice that clicking the “Add Cart” button will reveal the product’s add to cart feature. You will also need to configure the main eShop plugin settings, which are well documented within the eShop page in wp-admin.
