Woocommerce and DMS

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

 

I had help from Rob in a previous topic (http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/29805-dms-migration-questions/) regarding how to successfully migrate a clients website from the older pagelines child theme into DMS. I did this last night and everything seemed to work ok and I'm now at the point where I can begin re-styling the entire website again.

 

However, the first big problem I noticed is that there's a responsive issue with the woocommerce products. In the older pagelines framework I had to set the layout to 'Static with Pixel Width' and I don't know if there's a way to do this in DMS. Being able to select the option 'Static with Pixel Width' prevented any responsive issues with the woocommerce products (long product names) scaling to fit different browser sizes. Currently the woocommerce products are getting scrunched up when viewed on smaller browsers (or mobile devices). You can see what I mean from the following link which I've just created (fresh install of wp):

It would be good to know if DMS can handle this or if there's something I can do before I spend many hours re-styling the entire site in DMS?

 

Also, now that I have everything in DMS (on a test site) I also just wanted to double check that exporting everything back to the original domain will be an easy procedure because at some point I'll need to move everything back to the original domain name (www.racewaredirect.com).

 

Thanks for any help on this!

Hi James,

 

What is the responsive issue you're talking about, I have visited your website and your product reduce in size when I resize my browser, so I see no issue?

 

If you're working locally and have finalised your design and now wish to add these changes to your live site.

 

All you need to do is export both your Wordpress content via the Wordpress export option and also export your theme settings, which can be found under:

 

DMS Toolbar > Global Options > Import + Export

 

Once exported, you then simply follow the same procedure on your live site, but instead of export, use the import option.

 

The same goes for your Wordpress content too.

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for the information, you'll notice the problem more if you view the site from a mobile phone. The products names are all on top of each other. I am going to have a look into a few solutions tonight to see if I am able to come up with anything?

 

Thanks, James

James, I saw your site last night on my mobile device and somehow, my reply to this topic was not published. 

 

I could see that the text and link buttons overlapped.

 

Something tells me this is a WooCommerce issue, as inspection of the elements consistently came up with WooCommerce as the source of the CSS.

 

Can you (as a test) reduce the number of product columns from 4 to 3?

Hi to all,

 

We can mark this as resolved and thanks to everyone for their help with this. I ended up finding fixes for the woocommerce stylesheet from the following source (http://alexis.nomine.fr/en/blog/2013/04/27/a-bit-of-responsiveness-for-woocommerce-2-0-default-stylesheet/) which has made all of the shop products responsive (drop in a vertical line etc) on small mobile devices

 

Cheers,

 

James
