  1. Can you recommend a shopping cart plugin that works well with the Spexel Theme.

    • Hello!
      I never used any shopping cart with Spexel or any other of Wp Vulpe themes therefore I cant recommend any :(.
      I suggest trying WP e-Commerce and see how it works out.

      • Thanks for the reply. I have been pulling my hair out over trying to do this.

        Can you tell me if there is any chance that the theme could cause shopping cart plug-ins to not work properly?

        Also, is there any chance of updating to 2.0 throwing my monkey wrench into my existing blog?

        The last thing I need is to make things any more difficult than they already are with the shopping cart fiasco.

        • Since this theme wasn’t made for use with WP e-Commerce I suspect that a lot of thing would go wrong when those 2 work together.
          Either case you should always apply any big changes to a backup site of yours with the same configuration as the live one do you can take a look of the changes and the issues that may occur.

          Spexel needs to be configured properly in order to show as the demo, follow the instructions step by step and you won’t have any problems just make sure you don;t do this on a live website.

          • Do you have any premium themes similar to Sprexel that have been designed to work with WP e-Commerce?

            I really like this theme because of the video feature but need to have one that will work with a shopping cart.

            Are you for hire? Would you be interested in helping me get this figured out?

          • Currently I’m recovering from an arm surgery so I can’t work that said I strongly recommend taking a look at these Premium e Commerce Themes for WordPress.
            You’ll find lots of quality themes under a bargain price.

  2. I really appreciate your reply and help. I spent a long time searching for a theme that had the features and look I wanted and Spexel was the one that fit best. I was really hoping I would be able to find a shopping cart solution without changing the entire look of my site.

    Not sure what I will do next but going through the process of a web redesign right now it really not an option. So I am going to have to figure out a down and dirty solution using paypal buttons which also don’t want to work as a functioning shopping cart either with WordPress.

    Best of luck to you and the healing up of your arm.
