Hello all, I am new here and to this theme which I just purchased. The help file which came with my purchase is giving instructions but I am not seeing what is mentioned, please see attached screenshot of the market template and the instructions below which does not match up?

** The next few steps are VERY IMPORTANT and are not to be overlooked **
(All new installations MUST complete, regardless of Upload Option used above)

Create the Main Products Category -- By now, you should see a warning message telling you that Market needs to be configured. (This is normal at this point.) In order for Market to recognize product posts from regular text blog posts, you'll need to create a "Products" category. Do this by clicking on the "Categories" menu link under "Posts" (In Wordpress versions prior to 2.7 click the "Manage" link and then on "Categories"). In the field marked "Category Name", add a new category named "Products" and then click the "Add Category" button beneath. Leave "Category Parent" set to "None". (Category Slug & Description are not needed) Untitled.jpgImage Enlarger

Ok, I see the disconnect.

When it talks about creating a new "Category" -- that part is done through the backend Wordpress administration area. You can reach that by going to:


Finally, to create the same front page as in the online demo, you'll want to follow the instructions in the yellow box under step #7 of the "readme.html" file you were looking at.

Let me know if you need any more help.
