Today sees the release of a new responsive WooCommerce theme called Emporium, equipped with all the homepage modules to showcase featured and recent shop products, recent blog posts, sticky notes, sales banners and a featured slider. Not to forget the widgetized footer region to add those personal touches.
Emporium’s uniqueness lies in it’s fixed top navigation that is always accessible even when at the bottom of a long page of content, with space for two menus – one top right and one bottom left, and also includes a cleanly designed shopping cart dropdown.
Similar to Argentum the theme adapts to the media device it is being viewed on, even the homepage slider will scale, like our Buro theme. That’s if you want to use it at all, you might prefer to have the prominent homepage real estate display featured products, or even have the blog and recent products right under the header space. All is possible with Emporium.
Clean monotones, brushed chrome and gun metal is the easy on the eye default color/texture palette, but dig around the alternate styles to see what else is achievable with the theme.
Today we’ve got two new extensions available for your WooCommerce powered shop.
Visser Store Credit Extension
Michael VisserÂ certainly knows a bit about WordPress e-commerce and develops extensions for various WP e-commerce plugins. We recently reached out to Michael to ask him to partner with in developing some kickass WooCommerce extensions.
Generate store credit coupons that enable customers to make multiple purchases until the total value specified is exhausted or the coupons life expires.
For example a $50 store credit voucher used at Checkout for a $30 purchase will allow for a future purchase of $20 or until the total value expires or is exhausted. You can even buy Products worth more than the remaining store credit and just pay the difference at Checkout.View the Visser Store Credit extension
