A Basic WooCommerce Setup to Sell T-Shirts

WooCommerce is a powerful eCommerce solution for WordPress sites. If you’re like me, and like working with WordPress and have WordPress-powered sites already, WooCommerce is a no-brainer for helping you sell things online on those sites. But even if you don’t already have a WordPress site, WooCommerce is so good I think it would make sense to spin up a WordPress site so you could use it for your eCommerce solution. Personally, I’ve used WooCommerce a number of times to sell things. Most recently, I’ve used it to sell T-Shirts (and hats) over on CodePen. We use WordPress already to power our blog, documentation, and podcast. Makes perfect sense to use WordPress for the store as well! What I think is notable about our WooCommerce installation at CodePen is how painless it was, while doing everything we need it to do. I’d say it was a half-day job with maybe…

YOOtheme Pro Review: Strong Theme and Page Builder for WordPress and Joomla

Meta: This YOOtheme review focuses on YOOtheme Pro features, functionalities and the corresponding pricing, plus overall efficacy. For now, forget about all the fancy sales language you know. Or your products’ amazing and exceptional features. There’s only one thing that will make your traffic stay immediately they land on your site. Yes, you’re dead right. It all comes down to your web design. And the numbers are astonishing. Basically, 94% of your traffic would not trust a site with poor design. Chances are, they’ll just leave to engage other businesses with better-designed sites. That’s why I’ve always been extremely keen about the themes and templates I adopt for my sites, especially if they come from third-party providers. Speaking of which, WordPress users have always been lucky when it comes to this. We have a wide range of options to choose from, including dedicated theme providers, and page-builders that also come…

Brizy Review: Visual Page Building Reinforced

Meta: This Brizy Page Builder review covers everything you need to know about the WordPress plugin, with focus on how it would potentially impact your business. Well, of course, we love WordPress for its usability, and most importantly, its wide array of third-party plugins optimized for pretty much everything to do with websites. Come to think of it, we could spend a fortnight comparing different plugin categories, debating about the most essential one. However, if you’re honest, you’d acknowledge that nothing comes close to web design plugins especially when it comes to ecommerce sites. Consider this. The first impression visitors have of your website is 94% related to its overall design. That’s according to a study conducted by Northumbria and Sheffield Universities. The University of Surrey, on the other hand, released a separate report revealing that users’ assessment of your business’ credibility is 75% based on the website design. And…

Fast, Good, Local Site Search with Jetpack

If you have, say, 20 posts/pages on your WordPress site, the search functionality that is baked right into your self-hosted WordPress site will probably do a great job. Search is a pretty cool feature to ship with WordPress, truth be told. But as a site grows, you’ll find limits. How it works behind the scenes is a touch over my head, but as I understand it, it does a MySQL LIKE query on your post titles and post content. It tries its best to order by relevance (like if it finds an exact sentence match), then largely orders by date. If search is super important to your site (here on CSS-Tricks, on-site search gets used a ton) you’ll probably look for other options. TLDR: Jetpack Search is quite good out of the box, customizable, and requires very little effort. A quick jaunt through a decade-long journey. I started with Google…

The OSTraining Podcast #25: Beka Rice on eCommerce and the GDPR

Some people have scanned a few blog posts about the GDPR. Very few people have researched it deeply and really know what they’re talking about. Beka Rice is firmly in the latter group. Beka works for SkyVerge, who develop WooCommerce and Shopify plugins, plus Jilt, which helps stores to recover abandoned carts. I spoke with Beka on the day that the GDPR law launched.
