I discovered Market Theme from one of my vendor's web sites ( http://woodstabilizer.com ) last week. I had looked for a good cart/store solution that did not have a monthly fee or cost an arm and a leg. Since I didn't find anything, I started developing it myself on top of PayPal's cart. I was pleased to find Market Theme since I am a long time Wordpress user too. I'm really surprised my searches did not turn this up. Anyway, I purchased a license on Friday and had a workable store up in less than an hour. I've been tweaking the design filling in the content. You can see what I have here: http://eclecticangler.com/store/  the old hand-rolled store is here: http://eclecticangler.com

I will go live with it later this week after I do a bit more polishing and add the rest of my content and products.

Great job on this theme!

Cheers,

Michael

Nice Michael, that's great that you were able to get a workable store in under an hour.  Thanks for sharing!

Would you mind if I added portions of your comment to our upcoming testimonials area?

FYI: It would just show your comment, and your username.  (no personal contact info or anything like that.)

Sure you may use my comments above as a testimonial. It's all true! You could use my web site http://www.eclecticangler.com that would be great. I'll be migrating everything tomorrow.

cheers,

Michael

Thank you Christina! I still can't believe I didn't find MarketTheme myself! I use an iPhone and I can completely administer my store with the Wordpress iPhone app and the FTPOnTheGo app! It is fantastic really.

cheers,

Michael

Man Michael, your site is really looking good!

What do you think about increasing the thumbnail size a little? 

That might create a little more "eye-candy".

Ok, I see. I bumped the size of the thumbnails up by about 50%. They do fill up more space and catch your eye better. But, on the all products page, there is some funky layout in that they are not displayed in a nice uniform grid. I am going to play around with that.

cheers,

Michael

Got it, needed to adjust the # of thumbs per row. That does look better now, thanks.

cheers

Michael i ruly like your store. I just started building out a clothing store and am wondering how you did the table that has "Product Desctiption, similar products", "reviews" and "also viewed" sections? Thanks!

Sorry, I am not using Market Theme now. Although I really enjoyed using MT I needed more sophisticated shipping calculator for my products. I trialed 5 commercial products and finally decided on this one.

 

regards,

Michael
