Yes, I know how to change buttons for General, but the issue is that after I change the Add to Cart button in the General settings, it also displays under Style11 ultimately displaying two buttons.
I can’t stop the Default custom Add to cart button from displaying on the Fancy Style 11.
Any suggestions?October 8, 2014 at 12:43 am #45317wpCommerceModerator
There was a minor bug in the fancy 11 code. We have been able to fix it. Please install a fresh copy of extra shortcode addon:

I was thinking of using categories in conjunction with membership levels so that a specific button will appear depending on the membership level.
Membership level = Unlimited access
Category = Unlimited Access
Button = Download now
Membership level = Pay as you go
Category = Pay as you go
Button = Buy now
Membership level = Invoice me
Category = Invoice me
Button = OpenMarch 10, 2015 at 9:45 pm #45319ontraMember
Where do I put the actual category text for people to see the categories.
I am selling a red fingernail polish, blue fingernail polish, gold fingernail polish. Where would I put the actual text (categories) “Red”, “Blue”, “Gold” for people to “sort” those specific colors? How are people going to know I have categories if I can’t display the category text.March 11, 2015 at 12:05 am #45320adminKeymaster
Use the following addon then you can create a page where you offer your customers to browse your products by category:

Hi, If I understand your above instructions, I think doing it your way will make my customers go from the products to a separate page that shows all categories. I really wanted to show all categories next to the products they are viewing. And THEN when they click on the category they want, that will take them to that category page. And I want them to view the categories only as text, not with a photo.
Fortunately I was able to figure it out. My theme has a “sidebar” option, so I added the sidebar to all product pages and then in the sidebar I added the text “Red”, “Blue”, “Green” and then linked each of those text colors to the URL of their corresponding category page.
I don’t know what people will do if their theme doesn’t have a sidebar option? Hope this helps others.
Thank you.March 12, 2015 at 12:58 am #45322adminKeymaster
You don’t have to manually enter the links. You can just use the list categories shortcode which will list all the categories.
Have you checked all the shortcodes from the extra shortcodes addon?
If you want to show a list of categories to your sidebar then it only makes sense to use a theme that has sidebar. The sidebar space comes from the theme. A plugin can’t really do anything about that.
