Everything looks great! Yes, you explained everything perfectly. Two things:
1. On the homepage, click on guitars>acoustic guitars. The image at the top is a slider (you’re only seeing one image because I haven’t added others). Look below the slider and you will see numerous guitars. This seems to be the standard Woocommerce format. How do I get rid of that format and just have numerous sliders and keep my sidebar widget?
2. Is the Abundance theme ready for me to update to WordPress 5.0 without losing any of the css and sliders that’s been done?
Thank you for your help.December 8, 2018 at 3:35 am #1042296
If I understand correctly, you would like to remove the shop product grid, and only show your sliders on this page.
When you say you want to show a sidebar on this page, do you mean that you want to show a standard sidebar and not the shop sidebar that is showing right now? Does a standard sidebar show on this page, I didn’t see one?
As far as Abundance & WordPress v5, I would recommend making a full backup before upgrading to WP v5, or better yet, if your webhost has a staging site option I would test with that first.
Unfortunately (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -4-5-1″>this news was released yesterday, which says that themes like Abundance are at the end of it’s development.
You can still continue to use it, but I recommend testing a major upgrade, such as WP v5, first.
Please see comment in the Private Content area.
Please check your webhost to see if you have the one click staging site option, this is a option in most cPanels to create a staging clone of your site so we can test on it and you site will stay up and running. You can always ask your webhost to help you with setting this up if you want.

I would like to show the shop sidebar, but I would like to know if I chose to remove and replace the default grid layout of woocommerce and replace it with a plugin with a grid layout, how would I do it?
Thank you so much.December 16, 2018 at 12:27 am #1045763
I tried to login to take a look, but WordFence locked me out, this happens to me a lot?
Anyways, if you mean this sidebar then there should be a setting, I will need to take a look to find it:
The demo shows a grid, is this what you are trying to create?
MikeDecember 18, 2018 at 1:33 am #1046679
Sorry that you are getting locked out of my site. I’m not sure if you’re going in through WordPress or Filezilla, but if your going through WordPress, please note in the private data section my login username. It’s different from my Filezilla username. Could you be switching them up? Let me know if you have any more problems. To answer you question.
1. Yes. I would like the grid that the demo shows. I would like it on all of my product pages.
2. The sidebar I’m speaking of is the Yith Woocommerce Ajax Product Filter plugin. I just want to be certain that any css change with the grid layout of the demo would not affect how I wanted to display the sidebar.
3. As far as the theme, I’ve had it for years.
Thankyou for your help.December 20, 2018 at 5:07 am #1047572
Sorry for the late reply, I took a look at your products and shop page, and you should be showing a grid, but instead you are showing no products. I notice that you have another product and shop plugin and wonder if these are causing a conflict. Please try disabling your plugins except woocommerce, to see if we can get the default shop page to show as in the demo screenshot above.

I’m having a problem with my slugs in Woocommerce. If you go to Categories, you will see under “bass guitars” and “classical guitars”, the slug wants to repeat the word “guitars”. I have “Guitars” as the parent for both of these, but can’t figure out what’s wrong. I’ve tried redoing them, but nothing worked. The other slugs aren’t doing that. Can you help me please?
Looking forward to hearing from you.February 1, 2019 at 5:23 am #1061361
Thanks for the login, I looked at your categories and I see the slugs that have the extra guitars in the slug, this is because the categories are in there twice.
So to correct this, try deleting the categories at the top that have the extra guitars in the slug, and then move the ones at the bottom up into the place as a child of the parent “guitar” category.
You can move the categories by clicking and dragging the handle at the far right hand side.

I see the problem. Thanks for the advice. I’m sure I’ll need it again. :)

Glad to help, we will leave this open until we hear back from you that this is resolved.

I have a question. I have downloaded the Gutenberg plugin along with Stackable Gutenberg Blocks and Woocommerce Blocks. The issue I’m noticing is that when I am creating a custom page, the block editor works and will allow me to place full length containers in the page, but, when I go to “Products”, the classic editor is there instead of the Gutenberg and I cannot use any of the blocks or design the page the way I want. These are the pages that are going to be on my site, so I don’t understand why Woocommerce isn’t allowing the Block Editor if Gutenberg and Woocommerce work together. I even tried placing a full width container in my homepage, but won’t work. Is it that the Abundance theme won’t allow it?
Anyhow, how do I design my pages in Woocommerce with the blocks I want?
Looking forward to your reply.February 17, 2019 at 5:32 pm #1067913
Unfortunately Abundance has not been updated for Gutenberg, please see (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -4-5-1″>this post
MikeFebruary 18, 2019 at 2:10 am #1068081
Thank you for the post. I do plan to choose another theme soon, but right now, the question I have for Abundance is :
1. When you go to Products > Categories> Acoustic Guitars… for some reason, the number of products under that category isn’t showing. Yet, when you look under “All Products”, you will see I have few categorized there. So, when using Woocommerce Blocks in a page, it tells me that there are no products in that category. Huh?
2. In the post you referred me to, it mentioned that I could use a different layout for my pages other than Abundance layout. Is this referring to the mega menu in Abundance or using the layout that’s in Woocommerce Blocks?
Thank you so much.February 18, 2019 at 3:03 am #1068095
The products pages are custom post types for woocommerce, so you are restricted to what woocommerce allows. This has to do with how woocommerce saves the data for products.
I see that you can’t create a new page because a plugin “GridBlock” has taken that over. I tried to use the block editor to add a category to a post, but I got a error.
I believe your different editors are conflicting with each other, I would recommend deactivating some of the editors.
Perhaps this is why none of your products are showing in your categories
MikeFebruary 18, 2019 at 6:22 am #1068138
I’ve done EVERYTHING I can think of! I’ve deleted any plugins with an editor except ‘Woocommerce Blocks’. EVEN the Gutenberg editor. STILL… the products won’t show in ‘Acoustic Guitars’ category and trying to create a blank page with Woocommerce Blocks, it says ‘no products in the category’. Should you find the plugin that’s causing the problem, you have my permission to delete it.
HELP PLEASE!!!February 19, 2019 at 2:56 am #1068708
I took another look at your Acoustic Guitars and realized that they are all set as “private”, this is why they are not showing. So I set the “Stadium 12 String Guitar Rosewood Fingerboard” as not private and it now shows in your categories.

Thanks so much for your help! Giving it some thought, I am considering moving over to Enfold. However, I have a few questions about the Enfold Theme:
1. My store will have HUNDEREDS of products! Is Enfold equipped to handle an ecommerce store with hundreds of products?
2. Can I use either Woocommerce or Gutenberg blocks to design the store? Is Enfold Gutenberg ready?
3. I’m aware of the different theme demos and I’m seeing that all features of the demos can be combined to create my site. Such as the full screen slider in the “Business” theme. Can that be incorporated into my ecommerce site?
Looking forward to hearing from you.February 26, 2019 at 2:32 am #1071587
Sorry for the late reply, that is good news, Yes Enfold can handle hundreds of products, many of our users have large stores.
As for Woocommerce, Woocommerce comes with a store front and product pages, but Woocommerce restricts some of the aspects of these. You can design your own storefront and product page with our “advanced layout builder” elements (blocks) or you could use Gutenberg blocks, but I’m not sure what blocks are available, so I’m not sure how that would look. Please take a look at our Shop Demo to see what can be done with our advanced layout builder, it also has a full-screen slider. I don’t have a demo of the Gutenberg blocks & Woocommerce.
Also take a look at all of our demos, you can pretty much max & match any of these elements (blocks)
But I must say that we do have a couple of issues with Gutenberg that we are working on, and our builder is not designed to switch back and forth with Gutenberg on the same page. But you can build pages and post with either or on the same site.
Most people have disabled Gutenberg and build with our advanced layout builder, but it’s up to you.
I hope I have answered your questions.

Woocommerce is the best cart option, and on the most part Woocommerce add-on plugins work well (play nice) but in some rare cases where the add-on plugin was created by a different third-party developer, there may be issues we can’t solve.
But I’ve only seen this a couple of times, and I think any theme would have had issues with the add-on. I don’t remember what it was to tell you for example.
If there is a add-on you want to use, try searching on Google “enfold name of plugin” Enfold has been around for a very long time and there is a lot of feedback online about it.
MikeMarch 4, 2019 at 10:50 pm #1074543
I guess that’s all the questions I have for now. I want to take the time to THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of your help, expertise and just being the sort of moderator throughout all this time, that was willing to explain things THOUROUGHLY with CARE and SIMPLICITY! You are a GREAT teacher! As I intend to move forward with Enfold, I hope you remember my username for when I need help with the theme( I WILL eventually need it!) Lol., and I get the pleasure of your help and expertise again.
You may now close this thread .
Thank You !!!!!
