Help with using Market Press E-commerce and Graphene
Please please help me. I’m using graphene and have recently tried to install the plugin Market Press to set up a e-commerce section to the site.
However I keep getting the following error code
ERROR: You must supply the post ID to get the image from as an argument when calling the graphene_get_post_image() function.
This is on this page – http://johnsframingservice.co.uk/store/products/
I’ve been in long discussions with the plugin support team and we have narrowed it down to a theme issue. Please someone help me.
Here is the feed from the plugin support page –
Must say by the way Graphene is truly amazing and this is the only trouble I’ve had with itMod
Sorry, I don’t know enough about PHP to tell you why you are getting that error message.
That said, however, there are a lot of e-commerce plugins you can use, many of which don’t charge a thing. My own host offers a couple of options for e-commerce, at no charge. So look around before signing up for anything that asks for numbers.
My 2 cents/pence, anyway.
Hi Ken, Thanks for the input. I must admit I tried a few different ones that had the features I was looking for in a cart solution, all had problems creating a e-commerce with the graphene theme. So as this was my prefered one thought I’d fight through and try and get this one working.
Not sure how to upload a image on here. there is a screen shot of it on TwentyEleven on the forum I was previously on
Looking for post on the 31st August.
Thanks for your helpMod
many many apologies didn’t realise that.
No good, Martin. We would need to see how it’s supposed to work, so that we can at least have some pointer at where to look at to figure out why it doesn’t work with Graphene. The screenshot you provided shows the page with a PHP fatal error. We need a screenshot of the plugin actually working.
That’s my fault for taking the wrong screen shot.
Here is a link to what it should look like –AdminAdminAdmin
OK, took me about 2 hours to figure out how MarketPress generates that product listing page, which is rather weird in itself. It seems like MarketPress somehow replaces the content of the product listing page on the fly depending on the URL, but assigns 0 (or doesn’t assign any ID at all?) as the page ID. That causes all sorts of troubles with the theme, as page ID 0 is reserved by WordPress to mean the root page, so all other pages are children to that page, hence all the child pages were listed as well.
Anyways, was just ranting. I’ve created a separate page template for MarketPress use, with minimalist feature that’s enough for MarketPress to work. I’ve also implemented this in a child theme for you, so you won’t lose the changes when you update the theme.
Sorry for the delay in replying.
Thank you for taking the time to resolve this. I’ve had a look and it seems to be working fine, THANK YOU.
I will potentially be using the Graphene theme in future on other sites. Is there a particular e-commerce plugin you would recommend?
