Hi. I have written to you guys several times over the last 10 days now and haven’t received any kind of response what so ever!
I’ve purchased 3 of your products, and written with very specific requests which I have offered to pay for, even confirming that I’d like you to go ahead with work Ivy said you would do for me, but you haven’t written back to let me know if you’re starting work on that project or not etc!
I tried to keep all of that away from forums and so on, but clearly my messages aren’t getting through or something, so I have no choice but to post this up here which I didn’t really want to do as this concerns a private business arangement between our companies.
So, please allow me to confirm that yes, I do want you to go ahead with work on the new Fancy display features I requested, and which Ivy said you would do for a fee. To clarify once again, the new display feature set will allow me to hide whichever button is specified for a given product or category of products in the Type setting, from site visitors who are not part of specific membership levels.
In other words, I might add a new product which only my Gold members are allowed to download, add to cart, buy now or subscribe to, or I might set up an entire category of products that only Silver members are allowed to download, subscribe to, buy now or add to basket etc.
I want anyone visiting and browsing the site to be able to see the product itself, view the thumbnail, read the description and so on, but only members who are logged in and are of certain membership levels should actually be able to do anything with that product.
Hiding an entire product or category of products is pretty easy right now, but it is not currently possible to hide specific elements of a product or product(s), like the add to cart button. You either hide the entire product or have it completely visible. This new fancy display will make it possible to use Estore as a product catalogue unless a member is logged in and meets the membership level restrictions specified, in which case it becomes a fully opperational store.
Please can you let me know if you have received my repeated Emails regarding this new feature, and what the situation is with getting work on this completed.
I must stress again, I have indicated several times that I can pay for this work to be completed!!!

First of all, you must use this forum for product support. The reason is explained on all of our contact pages:
From your post I get the following requirement for your fancy product display:
The add to cart button in the Fancy1 Display needs to be conditional. So everything in the fancy display is visible to everyone except the add to cart button. The button will only be visible to a certain membership level (the level will be specified in the shortcode).
If my above summary is correct please let me know and I will send you the money request for this custom development.May 13, 2011 at 11:27 am #32413
Hiya, that’s basically correct, although I’d like to be able to specify multiple membership levels in the same way I can with WP Emember:
protects content from anyone not in membership levels 4, 5 and 8. Something along those lines would be useful.
2 other important points:
1. This should work for any of the 4 available buttons, not just the Add to cart button.
2. Could you add the _no_price option or something like it, to the display as well please? That seems to only work with Fancy Display 1.
Please note that the following shortcodes are the ones I use most extensively on the site:
[wp_eStore_fancy_display id=1 type=4 style=2]
[wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=2 order=1 type=4]
Perhaps settings like these would work for everyone:
[wp_eStore_fancy_display id=1 type=4 style=2 price=0 restriction=3-4-5]
This displays product 1 with a download button and no price using Fancy display 2 and only allows members from levels 3, 4 and 5 to access the button.
[wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=2 order=1 type=3 restriction=6-7-8]
This displays all the products in category 1 with a subscription button and visible prices, but only members from levels 6, 7 and 8 can access the button. In this example, price is not present because Estore default is to display it so you’d only include the atribute if you wanted to set it to 0.
I hope all that makes sense?
Ivy did quote me a price for this already, but please can you confirm by Email?
MattMay 14, 2011 at 1:31 am #32414amin007Participant
Yeah that makes sense. I will send you an email to confirm the quote and forward you the payment instructions.May 14, 2011 at 1:47 am #32415
Brilliant! I’m very excited now! I thought the whole project was a bust! Lol!

As this is regarding the display of things, I thought it may be ideal to ask this question here:
All these themes look good, the demo sites are okay but I I have yet to see one that actually looks like an ecommerce site, a proper shopping site. Please forgive me, I might be opening my mouth to change feet..
I want to use WordPress eStore Plugin for my online perfume store.
Is there a way I can get this theme to look like any of these sites below?
Is there a way I can customise a theme using a program like ‘artisteer’ that would be compatible with WordPress eStore Plugin to achieve my goal?
Basically I’m looking to create a complete store – not a store that looks like a blog.
So I’m asking for advice before I purchase – is it possible to do this look and feel with Estore Plugin without major customization?

You will probably always need to do some customization to get your site looking just right and integrated with eCommerce plugins etc.
Just to give you a demo of what can be done, here is a WordPress eCommerce site for physical goods that I created.
It’s an off-the-shelf theme that is integrated with WP eStore / WP eMember and Affiliate Platform.
Contact me via my website and I can give you some advice if you want to do something similar, since that’s what I specialize in – WP eCommerce integration.

The examples you gave are sites where the business spent money to get those designs custom developed. You most likely won’t get a ready made WordPress theme that will look just like those. You can search for various eCommerce themes out there and see if you can find one that you like.January 24, 2012 at 11:03 am #32419perfume-storesMember
Thanks, I’ll contact you on your website, that example site you gave me is what I have right now and I’m not happy with it, with your help I can get it to where I need it to be.
See you on the other side
