Hi, I am very much a beginner so this is probably a stupid question. I am going to end up with lots of pages in my eStore and although I am happy with the drop-down navigation from the navigation bar,and the full list of pages in the sidebar, I am wanting to add others for ease of navigation. On several of my mother pages, I would like buttons that people can use to get to the daughter pages. I would also like next/previous options at the bottom of each page. Are these options available with this plugin, or do I need to find other plugins? And if I do need other plugins, how do I know if they are compatible with eStore?(I love this plugin!!! and don’t want other plugins that conflict with it). And a completely unrelated question – I read somewhere that I should only load 20 items per page because WordPress can fall over if too many items are loaded onto a single page – is this correct, or did I misinterperet completely?

“I am going to end up with lots of pages in my eStore” – you mean the pages in your website or you are going to have lots of product in eStore?
If you meant wordpress pages then using the WP Pagination plugin can help. You are not likely to have any plugin compatibility issue with eStore if you stick with most of the major well known/widely used plugins.
“I read somewhere that I should only load 20 items per page” – this is not true.March 15, 2011 at 10:44 pm #18327tryt53Member
How hard would it be to add next and previous buttons to the page numbers, along with what page you are on? Many times you are on a page and don’t know which page you are on, so you don’t know what number to hit next. Showing the page number would help, and a next and previous button would also make it easier. My site is http://www.finddahlias.com and the Store page is what I am referring to. Thank you!

I actually recommend categorizing your products when you have a lot of products. You then place the categories on your store page. The products from each category go into separate pages. eStore provides you with all the shortcodes you need to make this happen. This way you customers can browse your products in a more structured way.
