    So a brief history…

    I built a website on iWeb.. yes, yes I know… but it was soooo easy to use and I could make it do anything!!! Using Paypal buttons I set up a site (which is still running) and I loved the freedom it gave me. But as I became aware of correct HTML coding and proper CSS and SEO, etc etc… I knew our site was not getting the traffic I needed. So I started to learn some code and I can read it and tell what it’s doing but I AM NOT A CODER>… and just like people who use a computer every day, but don’t want to build computers… I would like to make a great functional, awesome, lovely and not boring website, but I can’t really spend more time on the coding curve at this point… I will later but for the moment I need a proper site with SEO function and I’m also afraid that eventually my iWeb site will not work anymore…

    A friend said she would help…. so I transferred to Dreamhost and, started a earthpowerstones/development site within Dreamhost and added products (over 147 or them) and pages and more… then my friend deserted me… so here I am …

    I have purchased the Abundance Theme… and I set it up… although there are now images that are wonky but I think I can fix this later….

    My problem is this (I’ve searched the forum and the web with No help) so I’m asking you…

    I have over 147 products loaded AND published

    I’ve set up my pages (although with the new theme I haven’t tweaked the menu completely yet) and they are all published

    And I have 37 Product Categories

    But none of my products show up ANYWHERE… now I know it’s probably something Lame on my part but I can’t for the life of me figure it out!!!!

    I’d ultimately like to organize products to certain pages not just a shop page.

    like have all the bracelets on the bracelet page, different chakra jewelry on each different Chakra page but even though each product is tagged and has a product category assigned to it AND they are published they are not searchable, nor do they show up anywhere…

    So the website is not visible because it’s lying under the other one, if that makes sense… but here for instance is one of the pages:

    Have no idea what I’m doing wrong…

    Help would be lovely and much appreciated.



    Hi KDSfrog,

    Just from looking at the front end I’m not sure what setup is causing the issue. If you can set up a temporary admin account for me I’ll log in and take a look.

    You can send the information to my email at DevinVinson (at) Make sure to include a link to this topic so that my spam filter doesn’t grab it :)




    Thank you Devin

    I’ve set you up and sent you an email



    All of the products had their visibility set to hidden. I did a bulk edit on the products to change them to show so all fixed now :)




    Just wanted to thank you publicly!!!

    I knew it had to be simple but couldn’t see it…

    Also thank you for the shortcode page, I’m able to get the products to certain pages now with the code!!!

    So much appreciate your time!





    Glad that Devin could help you :)
