Hi All -

I have created my shop and added a few products. Now I am interested in customizing the shop. Help?

Read the following with the knowledge that I am using a WordPress Genesis theme and have all my pages set to "Exchange":

1. It seems products are listed in the reverse order they were entered. Do I have control over the order in which products are displayed?

2. I see the products are posted with the date I created them. Can the date be removed?

3. Is there a way to force Exchange to adjust all product images to match (or do I need to do this manually)?

4. I have enabled categories for my products. Is there a way to add a navigation to the shop page so users can select their view by category?

Regarding my first question - I did just stumble upon this post:


Thank you for adding some organizing options!

I would like to propose the ability to list products by category (however, I'll try working with the slug feature and see if this does the trick). Still, having a navigation feature on the main store page would be awesome and much welcomed!

Hi Karen,

Glad you found the answer to your fist question.  I'll add the ability to order products according to category to the feature requests.  

Instead of using the Product Slug, I might try Product Order # option.  Then you don't have to mess with the slug, just add a number in the Advanced Options.  Or, you can use it in conjunction with the Simple Page Ordering plugin which would allow you just to drag and drop them into the position you want.  At the time of that post, I hadn't completed the codex page, but I do have that codex page up now:  Store Settings  There, you'll find more information about ordering your products with the Simple Page Ordering plugin.

As for your other questions:

If the date is showing on your products, that's due to your theme.  If you can provide me with a URL to take a look at, however, I can help you out with the CSS to hide that.

Try this for your image sizing:  http://ithemes.com/forum/topic/58470-possible-to-have-product-thumb-and-larger-image-in-product-description/#entry246623

If you go into Appearance > Widgets, you'll find a Product Categories widget which you can place in any available widget area on your store page.  

Hope this helps.  Let us know if you have any additional questions.
