  • Ivan Velev

    Hello, I have a problem.

    After the main image I have added several categories in which the name appears below and with the logo perfectly, but when I add products to the category the name goes from being below to getting in the middle of the image and it looks very ugly, I do not understand because when categorizing the products the name of the category is placed in the middle of the image on top of the logo and it does not stay in its place ..

    I really am loving your tutorials. How would i go about creating the shop on my main website. I have followed one of you other tutorials and got myself setup a nice starter site. Now i want to have a menu link called shop that when they click on it, it takes then to my shop. It would be on the same domain. I followed your parralex website setup

  • terence

    does it matter (for SEO) if you put the content of your webshop on the URL provided by the hosting company and then link to your domain URL or should you put it immediately on your domain name URL ?

  • Sequence

    Can someone please help me? For some reason, I can get rid of the grey module/section at the very top of my screen? It overlaps with my header (logo, cart, FAQ button, etc.). I can provide pictures if that helps. Thanks!

If I shrink it, it shrinks for all versions and now looks small on the website version. I couldn't a way to change the size of the pic only for the mobile version. Do you have an advice how to deal with the problem

  • Meg Watt

    I cannot seem to locate the link to download the theme and images that you reference in your tutorial. Can you please post the entire link in this comment?

  • Brian Lacy

    Hi Hogan 1st of all THANKS!! and … At you FAQ page re "package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme installation failed." opening that link only reopens the FAQ page … does not offer solution.
    DO you have a solution?

    found this "
    Missing Stylesheet Error Solution

    Locate the folder you have of the theme on your desktop and open it (if it is zipped, unzip and open it). Now when you open it you should see all your files in there, if not the theme is likely in a sub-directory. For example our premium themes all have the theme inside an “Installable Theme” folder. Generally it’s somewhere obvious and the actual theme folder will likely be named the same as the theme. Once found zip it and upload via WordPress or upload the unzipped folder via FTP." @

  • William Tjo

    Hey Hogan, thanks so much for the video. It was incredibly detailed and informative. I have a question, right now I am running with Shopify and want to switch to WooCommerce. My only concern is that the FB Pixel data would be erased, and also my Google page rankings and SEO. Does this happen? If so, is there a way to preserve the data? Thanks!

  • Jody Strydom

    Hi there – in some of your tutorials you said to get updates on Themify Ultra one can contact you? Is that still option? Most of my sites are built on Themify Ultra and would like to update them if possible.

  • Spank Me Pink

    Hi! First of all, thank you SO much. Please can you advise if this version of the theme is compatible with the current WooCommerce version? Im getting a notice saying : "WooCommerce Stripe – The minimum PHP version required for this plugin is 5.6.0. You are running 5.4.45.
    " and "Your theme (Themify Shoppe) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files."

  • Lulu L

    Great Video! However the "The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini." error message came up when trying to upload the theme but the links on your faq section are not working :/

  • Qing Ma

    Thanks for giving useful tutorial.
    I wonder what's the difference between Web Hosting and WordPress Hosting. If WordPress will be used to build the website, why not use WordPress Hosting? Can you help me with this question?

  • Joris Van Doren

    To change your max upload size (encountered this problem)

    If your web server is using Apache and PHP is set as an Apache module, then you can add a few lines of code in your WordPress .htaccess file to increase the max upload size.

    To access your .htaccess file, connect to your server via FTP client and navigate to the folder where WordPress is installed.

    For example : C:wamp64wwwwordpress

    Open up .htaccess file in a code editor or Notepad and add the following lines.

    php_value upload_max_filesize 64M

    php_value post_max_size 128M

    php_value memory_limit 256M

    php_value max_execution_time 300

    php_value max_input_time 300

  • Kelly Bardawil

    Hello Hogan! :)) What if I already have a domain name and an already built website and want to take it and remake it from scratch on wordpress?

  • IM J

    Hey Hogan! Thank you so much for this tutorial, you totally saved me! I was just wondering if it is "safe" to set up the e-commerce as you have done and then apply a child theme to the site later for more customizations on the design? Will that interfere with anything on the site? Thank you so much for your help! Best 🙂

  • Billy_Bones

    Hi Hogan, how do I go about adding a subscription based payment method for products? e.g. monthly – or perhaps there is a tutorial you reccomend?

  • Evan O'connor

    Hi Hogan,
    Is it possible to adjust the language? So the customers can choose from 2 different languages.

    Very insightful and I appreciate the help! I am falling back a bit with all of these technologies popping up and recently switched to Shopify from Woocomerce. Hired a freelance agency to help me out with management and designs, and it was really cheap. I rather pay off for something than waste my time lol. If you need a consultation, reach out to them:

    Thanks for making this useful video! I was wondering if it is possible to integrate an existing erp system (Ecount ERP) with woocommmerce?

  • Ayodeji Olumose

    Hi, Hogan
    I have encountered a problem with the woocommerce plugin when I drag and drop it doesn't edit when I attempt it. Please, what can I do?

  • Fede Blaiotta

    Hi Hogun! Thank you very much for this tutorial, it's awesome!

    I've recently dowloaded the files that you post here. I have a problem when i try to use the WooCommerce module for showing the products on the home page.

    I drag it to a row but then I'm not able to edit it. It doesn't apear anything on the WooComerce or Styling tabs. Do you know what's the problem?

    I already read (and done) the coments where you said
    "Id recommend 3 things:

    1. Try using another browser i.e Chrome

    2. Clear your history, cache and cookies, retest the builder

    3. Disable/deactivate all your other plug-ins, retest."
    Thanks again!

  • Alex Roeder

    First, thank you so much for such a wonderfully helpful tutorial! I have made it pretty far into the website building but I have an issue I can’t seem to figure out. My contact page has a the “wishlist” logo on the bottom of it and it won’t seem to let me delete it. Also, my wishlist icon at the top right is connected to my contact page instead of a wishlist page? Maybe you can take a look Very much appreciate the help!!

    Hi Hogan,

    I am strugglling to add a free product on my site using this theme .

    so if a customer buys a specific product they automatically get this other one for free. Any idea on how I can do that.

  • Angelo Lagounaris

    I think there is a problem on WooCommerce styling while trying to change the style from builder (for example to define how many featured products will appear on the home screen). There are no settings while i try to customize it as you did. Is it possible any of the plugins to mess it up? Thank you for this great tutorial though it was really helpful! I'd appreciate it if i could get a reply on the styling of WooCommerce module as it is really important for me! Thank you in advance!

  • Vatzili

    Hello Hogan!!

    First of all, thanks for your videos, I love them!! I have made a lot of websites following your tutorias!!
    I have two questions, I'm working on this eCommerce website: , the thing is that when you are in the "shop" page there is this button under my products that supposed to be the "Add to cart" button but it says select options because I'm selling products with variations. My problem is that when you click this button an animation with the photography starts and I don't like it. I tried to find and option in all the settings to disable it or change it, but I could not find it. Is there a way to chage or disable this animation?
    The other question is: Is there a way to change the "cart" Icon?

    Thanks for all, keep helping the world like you are doing it.
    Grettings from Tijuana!!

  • James Cao

    I built a ecommerce website by closely following your instruction. However, search engines donot seem to find my website and its been more than a month. Could you please take a look of it and perhaps give a hint of why search engine could not find my website.

  • Michael Mokdad

    Hi Hogan
    great video, any suggestions for using a particular type of cart wit my Nab transact gatway with woocommerce? or does this normally include the cart? cheers and great work

  • Mrs. Man

    Hello Hogun! This seems like an incredible tutorial and I would really go for it but since it is a little bit older I would like to ask one thing first:
    Is it still completely free except for the domain? And could I start trying it out with a free domain and then later buy a domain if everything works like I would like to?
    Thank you very much in advance and have a great weekend!

  • Olivier Nzeyimana

    Hi Hogan. I was wondering if there is a way to specify cash on delivery being available to a certain location not to everyone. Thank you.

  • Tracey Holliday

    Hi! I'm needing a website where only consultants can purchase from so that it's not open to the public. Customers must go through a consultant to shop. Is that possible through this video?

  • Svyatoslav Yatsyshyn

    Hello, I have a very specific question. How do you change the color that appears when you hover over the Icons in the left hand corner of the header? (Shopping cart Icon, Wishlist Icon and the My account Icon) By default they have this gold looking color when you hoover over them and I would really like to change it. Thank you in advance.

  • Karlis

    Thank you for this “How to…” tutorial.
    I have a problem when I updated Themify Framework to 4.6.1
    Builder WooCommerce plugin will not work properly.
    Main problem is when you put woocommerce widgets on pages you don’t have access to edit them.

    I don’t find way to fix all that I just reinstalled Themify so it will be without updated framework and all is working just fine.

    I am guessing that you I need some up to date Builder WooCommerce.

    Themify and WooCommerce I took from your video description.

    If you have any solution that works with updated Themify framework, please share.

    Best regards.

  • Chene' Fourie

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I am having an issue with my logo not appearing on my shop page. How do I fix this?

    Hey can i use this to create a 1 page product site? (funnel) i mean its a 2 and a half hour video so just want to know before watching lol.

  • Lamier Anthony

    Another thing, I want to point out that my future Clothing Line/Brand, and from looking at the definition of eCommerce, what I want doesn’t necessarily fit into the criteria. I want to be able to start off small, and then grow it to the point where I have my own stores distributed across the globe, similar to how high-end designers and street wear stores have it. So… would I follow these steps to get a good start?

  • Asuzor Miracle

    Please I've lost access to my site. I was trying to setup my SSL by clearing my SSL caches from my browser because the "really simple SSL " plugin wouldn't work on my site. After activation, I got an error message saying that really simple ssl couldn't detect any certificate "

    Now i can't access both my site's control panel or viewers page.  The error i get is that "your connection is not private" .

    Here's a link to the site.

    Please advice on what to do. 


  • William Lau

    Hi Hogan, thanks for this. Can you have a look at the image height on this page and let me know why I can't seem to make the image less tall?

    I'm not a fan of customers having to scroll to click the buy now button. I've followed all your instructions for reducing the product image width but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I've also tried having very little text on the short description but this didn't help either. Thanks.William

  • Jeannine Belliveau

    Thank you Hogan for such a detailed tutorial. Nobody does it like you. Is there such thing as creating a catalog with variable prices for weight? Can a catalog be changed to a shopping page later? How might it be done? Thank you.

  • Indra Maulana

    Amazing content Hogan! Your tutorial is crisp, highly detailed, and straight to the point! You helped me with making my website by a huge mile!
    If it's too much to ask, may I contact you somehow and we can have a small chat? I'd love to gain just a bit of your insight if you can spare the time.

    Thanks for helping a brother out and keep the content coming!

  • kerry Ashurst

    Hi Hogan. Great tutorial! Ive followed it so far but have become stuck trying to do the featured products on my home page. When I've dragged the woocommerce into the row, I do not get the options box pop up like you do. when i select the woocommerce bit, the options come up but under woocommerce they are totally blank so i cannot do anything with it. I've tried using widgets instead but it doesn't look too good and I've uninstalled and reinstalled the woocommerce builder but it is exactly the same. I've tried editing via pages rather than builder and its the same. Is there anyway you can take a look somehow? is there another way of doing it if not and ill try that. Thanks!

  • pim intaravitak

    Hello, Hogan! Thank you very much for your clear tutorials. I have followed your instruction and find it very easy to understand. I have one question on how to add a text module. I just finished adding the image background onto my web, but I didn't see a row for adding the text like what you just did with "eCommerce" in a video "How to Create an eCommerce Website (Online Store) in WordPress for Beginners 2019! (1:01:22 / 2:32:10)" Please kindly let me know how. Appreciate your kind assistance. Pim

  • omar alkahef

    goodmorning Hogan. I got a problem with woocommerce. It is the part where you set the featured products to the homepage (starts at 1:28:15). You drag the woocommerce module on the page and get a pop up with the settings, but when i do it, it shown nothing. Could you please help me?! (could you maybe send your email, so i can send you screamshots. I suppose that it would make it a bit more clear).

  • Mina Wardkhan

    Hello Hogan… thanks as always for your tutorials. I've been following step by step with some variation. Couldn't have done any of it without closely watching.
    This happened when I got to change from full width to sidebar on the left: (screen video, 28s)
