Loving the theme so far, just a couple of questions.
Currently I have the SHOP set as the homepage……which is just showing products. How can I change this so that instead of showing products, we show categories, with a featured image for each?
I notice on the MERCH demo in the site library you have a slider at the top, then a couple of large images which link to categories…..how could I achieve something similar?
Cheers guys.August 2, 2019 at 6:07 am #973821DavidStaffCustomer Support
Merch simply uses the Gutenberg Blocks to create those images and links its all manual editing, whereas Niche uses the Woocommerce Shortcodes to display categories – list of them can be found here:
The shortcode Niche uses for categories is:
[product_categories]with some additonal parameters for limiting it to parent categories only.
You can create a static home page and add these codes with any other content to create a similar look.August 2, 2019 at 7:42 am #973915David
Im just giving it a go via elements….following your instructional video but not having much joy….
Done a quick video here which shows elements are not working….do elements work with these theme?August 2, 2019 at 8:16 am #974049DavidStaffCustomer Support
Couple of things:
1. Header Elements must have some content ( text area below title ). To show only an image add a HTML comment eg.
<!-- Header Element -->
2. Add some top and bottom padding as this controls the height of the element.August 2, 2019 at 8:38 am #974070David
Cheers mate….thats been a huge help. I’ve edited the code like this;
<!– Header Element –>
And site looks good 🙂August 2, 2019 at 8:56 am #974089DavidStaffCustomer SupportMay 29, 2020 at 2:24 am #1306043Matthias
Got a question about niche from the site library:
What is the reason that gutenberg plugin is installed?
The plugin is offering a more actual version – i get that. But as it is also included in core itself i wonder what is the reason behind that?May 29, 2020 at 4:27 am #1306154DavidStaffCustomer Support
the Gutenberg Plugin installs the latest version of the editor.
The one included in core is around 4 – 6 weeks behind that.
At the time some of the Sites were built there were still quite a lot of Gutenberg bugs in core that the Plugin had fixed. Today its not really necessary and I will probably remove it when the Sites are next updated.May 29, 2020 at 4:55 am #1306183Matthias
thx – i thought it would be something like that.
update sounds nice – already saw some using gb (guess thats the main reason for you).
Regarding niche – as it is only using gutenberg and woocommerce its quite nice to have a minimal one like that.
currently trying it out to create a shop based on that. But update sounds like i could wait a little with that 😉May 29, 2020 at 5:51 am #1306240
