Retailer

Retailer is an ecommerce theme for online retailers. It is a child theme of the Storefront theme, so this must be installed first, along with the WooCommerce plugin for ecommerce functionality.

Via the customizer you can choose from a range of layout and color options as well as uploading your own logo and header images etc. The also theme includes reviews markup so your products can get the star rating in the search results.

  1. Once this is available do we need to download ” the Storefront theme” first, since this is a child theme? And if it is a child theme, once it is updated, we may lost all customization, do we need to have a child theme for this child theme? 🙂

    • Hi Walter, yes you will need to install the Storefront theme before you can use Retailer as a child theme. Good question about making changes to the child theme…at present there is no way to make a child theme of a child theme. The only suggestion I have is to use a custom CSS plugin like Easy Custom CSS to handle your own CSS.

  2. I downloaded the theme, but cannot find an option to make a feature page like the one in the demo (default page). I tried to mimic the demo page, the one with a slider and product page on top. How do you create that?

    thanks.

    • Hi John, to mimic the demo just create a static page and apply the “homepage” template. Then go to Settings > Reading and set that page as the home page for your site. Hope that helps. For future reference please post any support requests to our help desk, it just means any answers we can provide might also help others too. Cheers.

  3. Hi Charlet,
    great theme! it works like a charm!

    only one question, there’s a way to change the social icon target in the top secondary menu?

    thanks in advance.

    • Yeah, the social media icons are controlled under Appearance > Customize. You can choose which ones appear and where they link to.

  4. Hai.

    I love the template. It’s easy to use.

    But there is a problem. I’m newbie here.

    Is there any demo template that I can import to use for my website? Thanks.

    • Hi Izham, there is no demo content for this theme specifically, but you can import woocommerce demo content if you need it: https://docs.woothemes.com/document/importing-woocommerce-dummy-data/

      Also, to achieve the home page layout as on the demo site for this theme you must take these steps:

      1. Create a new static page and apply the “Homepage” template
      2. Go to Settings > Reading and apply that page as the home page

      And that is really it. The Homepage template includes the product slider and category links as on the demo site.

  5. Dears it’s really a fascinating theme, however product slider is not sowing on my website + color changes is not effecting the header background

    help please ?

    • Hi Khalil, have you created a static ‘home’ page and applied the homepage template? If so then it might be a jquery conflict of some kind preventing the slider from loading. To test this you can disable all plugins (other than WooCommerce) and see if that ‘fixes’ the problem. If it does ‘fix’ the problem then you can enable the other plugins again, one by one until the problem re-emerges. Then you know which plugin is causing the conflict. For future reference please post all support questions and requests to our help desk: http://ask.wpdevshed.com

    • Hi Khalil, I can’t replicate this problem. Can you please share a screenshot of the option in your Customizer where you are trying to change this? You are using the customizer and not updating the CSS right?

  6. please help. I can not configure the template as I want. I want to change the texts “on offer” “fan favorites” … the bottom of the cart leaves me in black! and the slider button you want to put view product view “ver producto”. how can I do this? what can I do? the web is iluminalia.eu and my email is javierlison1991@gmail.com I really like the staff and I want in my store! please help me, I can pay, thanks

    • Hi Javier, we can’t provide paid support or customization services. For this I really recommend you try WP Fixit. They are much cheaper than we could be and they offer a great level of service.

    • Hi Javier, the latest version of WordPress is always the best. You should never run old versions of WordPress for security reasons. Have you been altering the CSS? If so you must use a child theme otherwise future updates will overwrite your local changes.

    • Hi Kristian, I thought we had fixed this issue. Can you confirm you are using the latest version of the theme as well as the latest WooCommerce and Storefront? If so can you share a link to your site so I can check it out?

  7. Hi! I was wondering if there was any way to change the slider so that the product featured image is not auto-resizing? Also, I’d like to keep the slider image for mobile/tablet and right now it is hidden. I can change the css for that, but just wondered if there was an easier way? Thanks so much for your help!

    • Hi Simon, I’m not sure what you mean by social media buttons, but I can say that the functionality of the theme is all driven by Storefront. Retailer only adjusts the front end styles.

  8. Hi Charles,

    Great theme! Is there any way to disable the header completely?
    I feel the header is taking too much space especially for mobile users.
    I prefer to show them straight with the logo at the top.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Richard, thanks very much. Glad you like the theme. There is no simple way to disable the header. This is possible, but you’ll need to edit the theme template files (header.php). Usually I’d say you should set up the theme as a child theme first so that your customizations don’t get overwritten with any future updates. But this theme is already a child theme and at this time there is no concept of a child of a child theme.

  9. Hi Charles,

    beautiful theme. I got a problem with the menu. It’s not aligned left anymore and the float seem somehow wrong. I also disabled all custom code I added but it still looks the same. You can check it here: https://wkpstr.com/home-alternative/

    I upgraded to the latest Storefront Version. Might the issue lie here? I also checked and it’s the latest retailer version.

    Thanks, Niklas

    • Hi Niklas, I’m not sure what is happening here. I’m running the latest version of Storefront and WooCommerce on tyhe demo site and don’t have any such problem. I suspect that you still have some custom CSS or template change that is impacting the layout here.

      • I just deleted and reinstalled both Storefront and Retailer and deactivated all custom code and it’s still the same issue. I also don’t really see any plugin that might cause this to happen. Thanks.

  10. I love the design and features of this theme but is there a way to enable auto-scrolling on the homepage product carousel rather than have people click on the individual images?

    • Hi Isabelle, there is no option to turn on auto-scrolling in the slider, though I agree this would be a nice feature. I’ve put it on the list of additions. We’ll look at releasing an update in the next few weeks with this.

  11. Hi! I’m very pleased with your themes but have a little problem.
    I configure the “Home page Slider Section” but doesn’t appear after saving changes.
    I have saved the template as “Homepage”, but neither.

    I’ll appreciate your help. Thanks so much!
    I’m noob 😛

    • Hi Esther, please make sure you have set the home page to display latest posts (see under Settings > Reading). Also have you customized the templates/styles at all?

  12. Hi, love the theme but just updated Storefront and everything’s broken/ all sidebars disappeared (despite individual per-page settings showing they’re still set to default layout)…any advice much appreciated! Or is it better for me to stop using this child theme now to avoid such problems going forward?! Sod’s law, I was planning to back up the whole site later tonight, should have done so sooner!

    • Hi W, I’m sorry to hear you are having such troubles. I’ve just updated Storefront on our demo site and it does indeed mean we’ll need to issue an update with some minor alignment issues for images and titles on the archive pages. But I’ve not had any problem with sidebars disappearing or anything like that so I’m stumped as to what would cause that. Did you make any changes to the theme html or css for your site? If you can share a link we can take a look. Cheers.
