Hello,

I am not quite sure what you are referring to when you say that you are on the "Products page" Would you be able to take a screen shot and post it here?

When you are on the screen you want to capture, press shift and the printscreen button together. The picture will be saved to your computer clipboard. After you press printscreen, open a program like Microsoft Paint, right click and paste. This should paste the screenshot and you can then crop it there using the crop tool. You should then be able to save it as a .jpeg file and post it on this forum using the Add Image facility at the bottom of the reply box.

Hi Healthier Eating,

We'd like to be able to help solve whatever problems you're having with the online store.

If you could post a screenshot, as Gop suggested, it will be very helpful. If you could also let us know what you are trying to edit or add, we can start troubleshooting the problem.

Hi,

There are no products added in the widget. The first thing that is required is to add at least one product and it's best to add a category or categories for your products. eg: Vegetables, Fruit, Fungi and for example Squash, potatoes, green beans, green-peas would be categorised as vegetables, orange apples etc as fruit, filed mushrooms, straw mushrooms, cloud ear would be categorised as fungi. Adding categories makes the process of grouping your products on a catalogue page much easier and logical.

Add your first products by gong to My Yola>Online Store>Add/Edit products button is seen at the bottom of that page.

After adding some then you can go to your web-site and drag the On-line Store widget onto your page. A pop-up as you earlier described will appear and at the top left of that you will see a drop down filed which when clicked displays the categories of products you have added into your inventory.

Belw that is the way that you can select to display them on your page, plus the number of products per page. Just play with those settings until you get the feel of what you think is the best way to present your products on the page.

After this step then you can add your Payment gateway eg PayPal into the settings of your Online Store. The other setting that you are best to complete is the Shipping details.

It's important to know the product weight as well as this is used to determine the shipping/postage costs.

There are a series of Tutorials here on Yola outlining a number of processes plus the ones I have described. They're in Group #16 of http://www.yola.com/tutorials/categor.... Well worth the read.
