SimpleCart(js)- Simple Yet Attractive (Plus Free) Online Store WordPress Theme

Online store wordpress themeSince I start to get to know with WordPress and fall in love with the massive collections of its themes – either free of premium, I do realised that it can be pretty hard to look for a good looking online store WordPress theme with online payment system integration regardless whether it is premium or free WordPress theme.

Such situation happens because the process is probably happens due to the fact that it can be pretty tough to integrate in the WP e-Commerce plugin with the WordPress theme.

The other possible cause is the fact the developers has to radically convert the nature of the site which is blog into online store especially the structure of the site itself.

Without having proper structure – in terms of user friendliness for visitors and also us- the admin.

However, Chris Wallace has developed and designed an Online Store WordPress Theme which is called SimpleCart(js). This theme is the child theme of  Themetic theme – a WordPress theme framework.

This is what Chris claimed about the simple yet attractive online store WordPress them:

SimpleCart(js) is a simple, attractive, and flexible WordPress theme that taps into the power of both Thematic and WP E-commerce. Features include AJAX cart functionality, a grid layout for products, and a flexible color scheme, easy to swap out images and completely customize the theme to your needs.

Actually, this theme was designed and developed for a contest by Instinct, the company behind WP E-commerce which would like to see who could reproduce simpleCart(js) built by the Wojo Group using a combination of WP E-commerce and Thematic for WordPress.

After Chris took a crack at $240, a dig into WP E-commerce’s new template system and designed this theme, he submitted this theme. The best part is he in fact won the contest and decided to release the theme 100% free of charge.

One important note for this version, there is no link from the products on the homepage to the product info page, future versions will include one. Also, it should be easy to add in there if you know what you’re doing.

So, I would like to recommend to those who have deep knowledge in tweaking WordPress them, feel free to hit the download button that I give below. Unfortunately, for those who not have such knowledge, I will only recommend this theme for those who would like to use it for simple stuffs which does not need much descriptions or you have to wait for Chris to lauch the new version in future.

If you would like to give quick look on the SimpleCart(js) theme, hit the demo button below.

Create Own Subscription Area Without Widget In Thesis Theme.

aF2fXrmoNkci2gphBho7InYqo1_500It is pretty tough to tweak something manually in Thesis theme manually as the way which Thesis is been developed is totally the opposite as compared to other premium themes.

To cut the chase, I will help you to create your very own blog subscription area in Thesis sidebar section- which is far more attractive as compared to the out of the box subscription widget ( I really hate the design, though. How about you? Leave your say in the comment section, ok?)

thesis theme subsriptions

First of all, let me you explain on the components of the new subscription area to help you to understand afterward tutorial later. The area can be separated into 3 components- the title, the feed subscription button and email subscription button.

In order to put your own subscription area in the sidebar section, you just need to paste below code into the custon_fuction.php.

function sidebar_subscription(){ ?>

<br><p style=”text-align: center;”><img class=”size-full wp-image-118 aligncenter” title=”Subscription” src=”http://huzzer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/subscription.jpg (image url)

alt=”Subscription” width=”290″ height=”45″ /></p><br/><center><br>

<table border=”0″ cellpadding=”2″><tbody></tbody></table><table class=”border=&quot;0&quot;” border=”0″ cellspacing=”4″

cellpadding=”5″ align=”center”><tbody><tr valign=”middle”><td><a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/Huzzer (feed url)“><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-115″ style=”vertical-align: middle;” title=”Subscribe to Huzzer Magazine” src=”http://huzzer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/Feed.ico (image url)” alt=”Subscribe to Huzzer Magazine” width=”67″ height=”67″ /></a></td><td><strong><a href=”http://feeds.feedburner.com/Huzzer (feed url)“><span style=”font-size: small;”>Subscribe through RSS feed</span></a></strong></td></tr>

<tr valign=”middle”><td><a href=”http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=Huzzer&amp;amp;loc=en_US (email subscription url)“><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-117″ style=”vertical-align: middle;” title=”Subscribe through email subscription” src=”http://huzzer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/emailIcon.jpg (image url)” alt=”Subscribe through email subscription” width=”78″ height=”82″ /></td><td style=”text-align: left; “><strong><a href=”http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=Huzzer&amp;amp;loc=en_US (email subscription url)“><span style=”font-size: small;”>Subscribe through email</span></a> </strong></td></tr></tbody></table><br/><br/></center><?php }

add_action(‘thesis_hook_after_multimedia_box’, ‘sidebar_subscription’);

The only thing that you want to change on the above code is the url of code which I have underlined.

For those who does not how to create such image, for the subscription title or the icons you can search for the image or the internet or you can just use Microsoft Words, print screened, such as the ‘Subsription’ word that you have typed and paste it into any image editor to crop unnecessary space and image. Then, upload it into your hosting site. From there, you will able to get the url for your image.

After you have pasted the above code into the custom_function.php file, save and hit the refresh button  in your internet browser, you will able to find the new subsription area in your Thesis-themed blog.

I do admit that this tutorial is not a programming masterpiece – it is just basic coding which have a lot of space for improvement. Even, if you have very little programming experience, I so believe the tutorial can be brought few steps forward.

If you have anything you want to add or tweak on the above code, feel free to do so and I really appreciate it if you can share with me and others who want to learn further in tweaking and improve the Thesis themed WordPress blog.
