Just a quick note to see if there are any fresh thoughts as to if it’s a good idea to install the WooCommerce on the Alyeska theme. The last post was a year ago. I see the link to the Patch.
Any advice before I give this a go? My current cart is going out of business so I have to switch in the next two weeks. EEK!

Nothing has really changed in that time. I don’t offer any specific WooCommerce theme integration or support for themes with framework 2.4 and earlier. With that said, you can use that patch plugin, which essentially just follows the WooCommerce basic theme integration steps, in order for the structure of pages to remain intact with the plugin. As far as I know, this all still works the same as it did a year ago.March 19, 2016 at 6:25 pm #25344
Thanks for the quick reply Jason!
I made a staging environment before swapping out carts but it seems like the Woo Commerce plugin is messing up my style sheet in Staging. When I disable the Woo Commerce plugin, all the pages preview fine but with it activated ALL my pages are stripped of my theme’s look and feel. Do you think this means its not compatible, or is it possible something hard coded in the production site is keeping me from previewing my pages the way they should in Staging? My theme was just updated in November and I’ve tried disabling the patch too but that had no impact.
I love my site as it is today with your theme but unfortunately my current shopping cart just gave me two weeks notice that they are going out of business so i have to find something ASAP. If I can’t use Woo Commerce, is there anything in particular I need to look for in a cart to make sure its compatible with my theme (Alyeska)?
I appreciate any help you can offer.

Sorry I don’t mean to sound repetitive but are you sure you had our patch plugin installed? What you’re describing sounds like the result of activating WooCommerce without the patch plugin?March 20, 2016 at 1:11 am #25351
Hi Jason, I don’t mind you second guessing me, I have been all day. This is the patch I’m using. I’ve disabled it and then reactivated it. Unless I’m missing some custom configuration….
I installed it after WooCommerce…does the order matter?
I’d REALLY love to get this to work. If you can think of anything else, I’ll try anything.
Could it be conflicting with another plugin?

this is how it looks, I do see cart components and even a few images (product, button) but for the most part this is how ANY page previews. Each line item below is a hyperlink.

oh jeez….I’m not sure either. The patch seems to have no impact, the pages (even my old pages) look the same with or without it (with no formatting). But the minute I deactivate WooCommerce, everything looks fine again.
To confirm, I just need to activate it, correct? No customization or settings need to be changed once it’s activated?March 20, 2016 at 2:37 am #25355
Yeah just now I didn’t do anything other than just activate the two plugins and create a product. What you’re showing in your screenshot doesn’t quite make sense. Is there any way you could reproduce this somewhere I can see at a live link? There has to be a simple explanation for this.March 20, 2016 at 2:53 am #25356
Try this – http://ef5.b49.myftpupload.com/about-bunion-relief/ My old About Us Page
Again this is my staging environment, I know it shouldn’t make a difference but maybe it does.
The links you see listed that start with “BUY” won’t work, those are to my old cart.
Thank you for your time Jason 🙂March 20, 2016 at 3:04 am #25357
I think it’s something to do with whatever caching plugin you’re using to compress all your scripts and stylesheets. I don’t think this actually has anything to do with WooCommerce, other than you’re activating a plugin that’s adding more stylesheets to a cache that needs to be cleared. Try either clearing the cache or disabling the plugin that’s doing the caching.March 20, 2016 at 3:27 am #25358
We use GoDaddy’s Managed WordPress hosting. It doesn’t allow me to use Caching plugins but they have a function to clear the cache and I just did that several times but not change 🙁
Here’s my list of active plugins in case something catches your eye… I had deactivated and then reactivated the two redirecting plugins and there was no change. I disabled a Force SLL plugin as that’s the only way I could get anything to preview.

I don’t think it’s anything to do with your plugins. I think it’s an issue specifically with how they’re minifying and compressing all of these scripts and stylesheets together on your server. View your website’s source in your web browser, then try to click the CSS file it’s creating that has all styles compress into.
Notice how you get a 400 Bad Request error from the server. So I think this is some sort of server error with your managed hosting and how it’s compressing these assets on the frontend. I would contact GoDaddy support.March 20, 2016 at 3:45 am #25360
ok, I’ll call them first thing in the am. Thanks and have a great night 🙂March 20, 2016 at 3:47 am #25361
Also whereever you were clearing the cache before I’d check if there’s some sort of CSS minification option they give you, that you can disable.March 20, 2016 at 4:45 pm #25364
Hey Jason! I had a minify plugin that I disabled myself, now I can see the products and my pages! Check out the links I sent you last night! Thank you thank you for that tip!!!
