This is just a test post in a test ‘theme’ (ie ‘layout’), posted by Conor. Don’t pay any attention to the layout or structure at this stage, this is the unadorned, vanilla starting point.
Firstly I want to make sure the WordPress database works – and it seems to. Good.
Second I want to see how the eCommerce plugin that I have chosen (‘Shopp’) works and whether it satisfies your requirements. I haven’t used Shopp before, but from the blurb etc it seemed less obtrusive than the other popular shop fronts, but with a lot of features. There will be two aspects to look at :
1. can we control the look of the front-end (the shop-front) as much as you and Jordan want.
2. does it contain the features in the back-end (admin) that you need ?
I think we will only find out by gradually using your real life products (with their variants) and situations, hence my enthusiasm for getting going as soon as possible with this eCommerce aspect, without waiting for Jordan’s overall design, which we will incorporate as it develops.
