#146000 Why I Admire Ithemes And Especially Webdesign.com

Posted mcfitz on 17 August 2012 - 11:30 PM

When I find something I like, I share it with others. I've had a lot of opportunities to talk about iThemes and WebDesign.com over the past few months, and the latest was this week at a local WordPress Meetup. These are a few of the things I told them.

I have been a member of WebDesign.com since last October, and it's been the best time and money I've spent in the past year. Each webinar is interesting and the topics are directly related to working in WordPress, not some out-of-touch designer's idea of what's important. The "Professor," Benjamin Bradley, is extremely knowledgeable and a great speaker. He has an incredible knack for knowing what we are about to ask next. His ability to move from beginner to expert level is super helpful, because we're quite a mixed group.

I like iThemes because Cory Miller and team are not just pushing iTheme products, but they are out to help members become better designers, better developers, and better business owners. Cory's presentations on entrepreneurs have been great, and the guest speakers he's invited have really added to the mix. I admire what he's done with the company and I respect his work ethic.

Builder and the child themes are super to work with. [I explained the difference between "frameworks," themes and child themes as best I could.] Although the child themes with Builder don't look as fancy as some other themes at the start, the ability to do ANYTHING YOU WANT with the theme is a huge advantage over a pretty but limited theme. I don't like working with any other theme brand now, after working with Builder, and that's a fact. (Plus, the new Allure themes are pretty to start with! LOL)

When I mentioned the fact that iThemes makes BackupBuddy, most of the Meetup members perked up. They recognized it and were interested in other Plugins made by the company. I made sure to mention Chris Jean and the development team a time or two, and to say how attentive they were to their customers.

The best part of all, I ended with, was the support. I have been very pleased with the support I've gotten from iThemes, and I want to especially recognize Sridhar Katakam for his patience, guidance, and the incredible amount of care and time he puts into the forums. When I see the answers from Ronald and Sridhar, I wonder how two men can possibly know so much about WordPress, Builder, plugins, and everything else. Please know that the users appreciate you tremendously, even if it isn't said as often is should be.

Thank you!


#256346 Shortcode For Exchange?

Posted Ronald on 20 May 2014 - 04:00 PM

@webweaver,

I've worked out a way to add a "buy" button to a WordPress non exchange post or page via a shortcode. It is fairly experimental, some content is hard-coded, but if you want to give it a spin, please do. So this is not an official iThemes Exchange customisation yet.

The assumption is that you know the product ID, and that most other product information will be added in the post. So (currently) it only outputs description, price and the buy now button. In order for this to make sense, it is highly recommended that you add the superwidget to a sidebar, so that the checkout function can be initiated as well. Otherwise, the buy button would be kinda lost.

This is (as far as I'm concerned) still work in progress, but I'm curious to see how/if at all this works for you.

Add the following code at the end of your child theme's functions.php:

/**
* Creates a shortcode to add a product to the cart
*
*/
function my_it_exchange_add_to_cart($atts) {

   extract(shortcode_atts(array(
			"product_id" => null
   ), $atts));

   it_exchange_set_product( $product_id );

	$output = "<div class='my_it_itemdescription'>Item: " . it_exchange( 'product', 'get-description' ) . "</div>";
	$output .= "<div class='my_it_price'>Price: " . it_exchange( 'product', 'get-base-price' ) . "</div>";
	$output .= "<div class='my_it_buy-now'>" .it_exchange( 'product', 'get-purchase-options', array( 'add-to-cart-edit-quantity' => true, 'buy-now-edit-quantity' =>true ) ) . "</div>";

   return $output;
}
add_shortcode( 'add-to-cart', 'my_it_exchange_add_to_cart' );

Then add the following shortcode in your post or page:

[add-to-cart product_id=123]

where 123 is the (WordPress) ID of the product,

Ronald


#263175 Any Progress Toward Being Able To Email Customers?

Posted pattyayers on 24 July 2014 - 11:06 AM

Thanks, Elise. The MailChimp add-on only allows people to opt in if they want, so meets a completely different need. We need to be able to email all of our customers. We'll add them to a list manually for now, but really hoping this gets some attention soon, email being such a basic aspect of e-commerce.


#259378 Shortcode For Exchange?

Posted mrarlen on 18 June 2014 - 02:41 PM

Building on Ronald's code, Here's what I came up with so far. Although I am very new at working with this API.  

This adds a Featured Thumbnail Image, Product Title and basic tags which can be styled.  

/*
* Creates a shortcode to add a product to the cart
*
*/
function my_it_exchange_add_to_cart($atts) {
   extract(shortcode_atts(array(
						"product_id" => null
   ), $atts));
   it_exchange_set_product( $product_id );
	 $output = "<div class='my_it_product_shortcode'><div class='my_it_itemimage'>" . it_exchange( 'product', 'featured-image', array( 'size' => 'thumbnail', 'return' => 'true' ) ) . "</div>";
		$output .= "<div class='my_it_itemdtitle'><h2>" . it_exchange( 'product', 'get-title' ) . "</h2></div>";
		$output .= "<div class='my_it_itemdescription'><b>Description: </b> " . it_exchange( 'product', 'get-description' ) . "</div>";
		$output .= "<div class='my_it_price'>Price: " . it_exchange( 'product', 'get-base-price' ) . "</div>";
		$output .= "<div class='my_it_buy-now'>" .it_exchange( 'product', 'get-purchase-options', array( 'add-to-cart-edit-quantity' => true, 'buy-now-edit-quantity' =>true ) ) . "</div></div>";
   return $output;
}
add_shortcode( 'add-to-cart', 'my_it_exchange_add_to_cart' );

#113425 My Builder Sites

Posted ka2id on 22 February 2012 - 06:08 PM

I have been using WordPress now for about a year and a half and Builder for most of that time, as someone who doesn't code PHP much, I love how Builder gives me a quick and easy way to layout my sites.

So a lot of these sites don't look like typical Builder sites because I use Builder mainly as a skeleton for the layout, then I CSS the heck out of it and do all custom graphics. Enjoy!

http://broadwaycrossing.ca/
New condo development in Vancouver, just using the base Builder theme

http://sunriseliving.ca/
Condo development  site

http://realestaterebel.ca/
Realtor's website, using the Covert theme

http://barbierienterprises.com/
Website for building maintenance/renovation company, using base Builder theme

http://www.reliefrxstaffing.com/
Relief Pharmacy worker job site, used Builder and WPJobBoard plugin, love how one can incorporate other major themes with Builder

http://ka2id.com
My own website, also done using Builder

Really loving Builder and WordPress, using it for some other cool site concepts that I will load here soon, so thanks for the amazing plugin Ithemes and let me know what you guys think!


#281442 Limit Purchases To Only One Country?

Posted evita3 on 20 December 2014 - 07:06 PM

The filters you refer to are the 'alts'--synonyms that if entered will result in the same entry. This only makes sure if the client types anything close to the correct response that it will be accepted correctly. In my case for example (México) if you type in 'Mexico' it will not be found. With an alt, all variants are accepted.

Steve let me see if I can re-understand what hack I used to do the trick to limit ITE to one country.

If I am not mistaken, I took the output of what I wanted--country and state data in an entered form--and stuck it back into the appropriate templates. This bypasses the code and forcably inserts what would normally occur if one country were chosen.

------------

Create directories and make two files in:
<your_theme>/exchange/content-checkout/elements/purchase-requirements/shipping-address/elements

The first file, 'country.php', should have something like:

<?php
/**
* Limit to one country (US example)
*/
?>
<?php do_action( 'it_exchange_content_checkout_shipping_address_purchase_requirement_before_country_element' ); ?>
<div class="it-exchange-country it-exchange-left">
	<label for="it-exchange-shipping-address-country">
		<?php _e( 'Country', 'it-l10n-ithemes-exchange' ); ?>
		<span class="it-exchange-required-star">
			*
		</span>
	</label>
	<select id="it-exchange-shipping-address-country" name="it-exchange-shipping-address-country">
		<option value="US"><?php _e( 'United States', 'it-l10n-ithemes-exchange' ); ?></option>
	</select>
</div>
<?php do_action( 'it_exchange_content_checkout_shipping_address_purchase_requirement_after_country_element' ); ?>


The second, 'states.php', can contain something like what comes from 'ithemes-exchange/api/data-sets':

<?php
/**
* div bug fix for 'state' field length, and hard coded for US states
*/
?>
<?php do_action( 'it_exchange_content_checkout_shipping_address_purchase_requirement_before_state_element' ); ?>
<div class="it-exchange-left it-exchange-clear-left">
	<label for="it-exchange-shipping-address-state">
		<?php _e( 'State', 'it-l10n-ithemes-exchange' ); ?>
		<span class="it-exchange-required-star">*</span>
	</label>
	<select id="it-exchange-shipping-address-state" name="it-exchange-shipping-address-state">

#280242 I Purchased The Toolbox Kit....

Posted Ronald on 09 December 2014 - 02:57 PM

Hi,

I responded to your support request earlier today and suggested you post in the Builder forum. When you say "WordPress Premium Package", do you mean that your site is hosted on WordPress.com? If so, sites hosted on WordPress.COM can't use most of the custom themes, such as Builder. Builder, and most WordPress themes are intended to be used on self-hosted WordPress.org sites. More about this can be found here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

hope that clarifies,
Ronald


#279476 Stripe Webhook Errors After Upgrade To 1.1.33

Posted Elise Alley on 02 December 2014 - 01:48 PM

Hi Marcy,

This has to do with your SSL plugin. I'm not familiar with it, but with your current setup, it is filtering the value of get_site_url (which we use) differently on the stripe settings page than it is when Exchange tries to verify that we're on the correct page before processing webhooks.

This means that the SSL plugin is incorrectly editing the stripe callback URL we provider you with in settings. Instead of using the SSL version, you needs to use the non SSL version.

1) Go to Stripe webhooks setup on stripe.com admin panel
2) Edit the webhook and change the URL from https://sitename.com/blog/?it_exchange_stripe=1 to http:/sitename.com/blog/?it_exchange_stripe=1 (of course, use your URL instead of sitename.com :))

You will be able to see that the version without https works and the version with it doesn't going to those two URLs in your webbrowser.

Give that a try and let us know how it goes!

Thanks,

Elise

Also, can you let us know what version of Exchange you're currently running?  And, do you have iThemes Security installed on your site?

Posted Glenn Ansley on 01 December 2014 - 08:29 AM

Hi Elane,
We released 1.11.4 this morning. If your problem was the same as the one in the other thread, it should be fixed after you upgrade.

You will be able to confirm this by going to http://my.moodsmith.com/?it_exchange_stripe=1

Right now, you get an error that says: "Invalid webhook request for this site. "
Once it has been fixed, it should say: "iThemes Exchange webhook process Complete"
