Create an eCommerce Website in WordPress


Blue Host Had my dog appreciation website for at least 4 years, and made a really serious mistake. They changed my account from an automatic renewal to manual and never sent me an E-mail. Then they canceled my account and deleted my website complete with the awards the website had received. And they didn’t keep a backup on file. I’ll choose someone else to host my site. This company is terrible.

    Hi Greg, I've got as far as purchasing the theme tool but my website is very different from yours. I'm going to be selling made to measure curtains and blinds with various fabrics, size options, different styles etc so would be so grateful for some guidance ? Thank you Sandie 🙂

    Hey, I just downloaded the free version, did a couple of tests and suddenly when trying to customize, I get the hourglass that runs and runs and runs like it's loading an image or something. Woke up 8 hours later and still trying to load so………I uninstalled the theme and reinstalled and still trying to load something. Maybe the theme casts a spell on those who don't buy it, but I'd appreciate some hints as to how to get the hourglass from running and displaying at least a blank page or something or any other working behavior. Thanks
