    Yes, I try!

    Hey, how much of a demand do you see for WooCommerce (or implementing a shopping cart) with your current clients and students?

    I have received requests for a shopping cart from a few clients. Think it would be great to have that functionality for Jump Start 2.

    There is definitely a demand. I am running Woo in JumpStart 1 and Alyeska. Definitely need ye ol’ patch updated for this version – themeblvd woocommerce patch.

    Not sure what else you are thinking, but there is definite interest.

    Hi Jason,

    I have a big demand for WooCommerce, and I plan to include WooCommerce as part of my course using Jump Start 2.0.

    I think WooCommerce is the best plugin to use at this point in time, so any patching you need to do for that to work would be great. Huge demand.

    All right, well glad to hear that, guys. The last week or so I’ve been working on integrating WooCommerce better natively into the theme, so it blends in and all, and you don’t need any other plugins (like my old woocommerce patch plugin).

    Here are some screenshots of how it’s coming so far:

    Looks fantastic Jason! Will the list view work for variable products – please?

    @mike-se Can you link me to a screenshot of what you’re referring to? I’m super new to even using WooCommerce. This is the first time I’ve really ever dug in from developer or user side.

    Sure. Here’s a link to Woocommerce own documentation about product variations:

    I understand how variable products work. The screenshots I posted contain an example of a product with variations. But I don’t understand your question, “Will the list view work for variable products”? What are you talking about when you say “list view”?

    My bad Jason. I’m guessing there is no list view, yet 😉 It would be awesome to have a WooCommerce products list view option in JS though. Something like this:

    http://www.sureshopress.com/display-product-for-woocommerce/?page_id=178

    The plugin following this link doesn’t seem to be supported anymore. Oddly WooCommerse doesn’t include a products list view by default, what I have seen anyway. I haven’t found any that work well, and the very few ones out there don’t support product variations.

    Like this order form variant: http://orderform-woo.webaware.net.au/example-forms/all-products-on-one-form/

    Just thought it would be nice having different views for WC i JS. That would make the WooCommerce integration outstanding.

    Aw, ok I understand what you mean now. Similarly to how Jump Start has different post displays like post list and post grids, you’re thinking there could be options to change the display of products, so we have something other than just the standard product grid, like you see in most WooCommerce implementations.

    Exactly like that, yes. That would be really great, and useful. As it is now I havent yet met anyone who didn’t ask for some kind of product list view.

    Especially product lists by category, which include product image, product variables, price and add to cart buttons. Customers loose themselves jumping forth and back between single product page and grid.

    As an example I can mention one shop that sells hundreds of different postcards to shops. When customers do a search for say “greeting cards poem” it would be nice to present a list view where they can easily scroll down a list and pick the ones they want, and how many of each.

    +1 for deep woocommerce integration! Can’t stress enough how crucial woocommerce is to all of my clients (and my own properties). I don’t use any other e-commerce platforms anymore…

    Yes, +1 for giving the WooCommerce standard product grid some love. Interesting that the Shopp Plugin and EC Wid both have list views with options of what displays. With my Shopp Templates, I’ve always shown the Add to Cart button in the List View so the customer didn’t have to switch between the product grid page and the product detail page. Whether list or grid, it would be nice to have options on that main grid page for a Buy Now or Add to Cart button. I haven’t worked with the WooCommerce templates enough to know what can be modified in the templates using their template tags.

    I’ll have a project soon for a chocolates site where we would like a Showcase like display where on hover, there’s the option to add to cart and have some product details. That might be too complex, though.

    I was glad to confirm that so many of you can benefit from WooCommerce flowing into Jump Start more seamlessly. This has actually come along quite nicely. I think I’ve got a nice foundation for WooCommerce integration laid in there, that can be expanded in the future.

    @askwpgirl Post Showcase and masonry type of stuff for products will have to come a bit later 😉
