You inserted it into footer.php? Why don't you try inserting into index.php, the same way I did, and tell me the result.

Just tried and it still works...

Well, I have to get to the bottom of this. We are talking about index.php under the THEME/Jarida folder, right? Not the main WP index.php?

If it works for you, there must be a reason it doesn't work for me. What else can I try?

I don't really know. I would make sure you've clicked the [Update Products and Settings] button on your site so you are for sure the new view has been added to your site.

Other than that, you might need more guidance from the theme developer you purchased the theme from.

Eric,
This time it works, but the formatting is all wrong. Instead of a nice row of thumbnails across the bottom, I get one column of giant images. See attached screen grab.

Hi Dima,

Great! To fix the formatting, go here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > WIDGETS > Home Page Bottom > View menu > View Properties

Under CSS ID, add the word: view

Save and click the [Update Settings Only] button on your site.

OK, that's closer, but there are still formatting problems. I really only want one row of 4 products. Plus, the buttons and description are not lining up correctly. Is my theme's CSS interfering with datafeedr? Please see attached screengrab.

Eric September 25th, 2013 02:50 PM

Hi,

If you just want 1 row, you need to set the Products per page to 4 here: The Factory > Your Store > VIEWS > WIDGETS > Home Page Bottom > Product list module > Settings ()

I would also suggest you change the Product list template from the Template 2 code you are using to Template 1. Template 1 (with 4 columns) will format the products nicely on your page.

Eric,
Thanks. That actually works very well: http://diaboliquemagazine.com/
Two questions:
Since the box surrounding each item is so wide, I think I'd like to fit 5 products in there, but when I specify that in (Settings), the fifth product goes on a second row. How can I have 5 products on one row?

Also, if you look at my sidebar, you will see the Advanced Search Widget, but there is no search field. Is that the theme's CSS interfering? What can I do about it?
Thank you for all your help.

One more question...
Just above the row of products, I need to put a header that says, STORE. Should I just insert the proper HTML tags into index.php manually?

In your product list module change this:
HTML Code:

<div class="t1 col4">
To this:
HTML Code:

<div class="t1 col5">

I don't see that...

Yes, that would be fine to put it there.

This is what I'm seeing in my sidebar: see attached.

When I change to code <div class="t1 col4"> to <div class="t1 col5">, it creates bad formatting problems with product images. Please see attachment.

Eric September 25th, 2013 07:54 PM

Hi,

The reason your search form fields aren't showing up is because your theme has set them to not show up. You can try adding this to your Custom CSS:

Code:

#wdgt_as input {
border: 1px solid gray;
}

Regarding the images, you could try this Custom CSS:

Code:

#view .col5 .thmb, #view .col5 img {
max-width: 100px;
max-height: 100px;
min-height: 100px;
}

Embedding Products in to Homepage
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Eric,

I think my issue might be related to this thread.

I am trying to embed hand-picked products in to the homepage http://bombpetite.com/ like on the screenshot attached.

But as you can see from the screenshot it doesn't work (even though it works fine on other pages).

What I'm trying to do... I've created a HTML three column grid. Placed it in one of the theme-generated homepage sections. And now want to insert a product into each column of the grid. Then style it to my liking.

Can you please advise?

Thanks,

Eugene

Eric March 19th, 2014 09:21 AM

Hi,

Your theme needs to use the_content() instead of the_excerpt() function when displaying blog info on the front page.

You'll need to edit your theme and make that change. If you're not sure, you should ask the theme developer how to change your front page to show full content instead of the post excerpt.

Eric
