Where can I change the text that is displayed by default on the demo store banner?June 15, 2012 at 4:22 pm #78776
You’ll need to run a search through the WooCommerce plugin files to find the string. Its not something the theme edits so there isn’t an option available through the theme admin.
I think woo commerce creates most of its basic functions in woocommerce>woocommerce>template.php so I would check there first. You’ll need to edit the file then re-save it in the same place in the plugin folder.

I found the php file from firebug and opened it. This is what it says.
<p class=”demo_store”>This is a demo store for testing purposes — no orders shall be fulfilled.</p>
But when I open the php file to <p class=”demo_store”> that text is not there and I don’t know where to edit it. Sorry but css is not a real strong point for me. But I sure am learning alot here.

I just did a search of the plugin file, its on line 170 in woocommerce>woocommerce-template.php. You’ll need to edit that line of text and then save it back to the same place in the plugin folder.

So I edited it and ftp’d to the server and now I can’t get anything to show up.:-(June 16, 2012 at 10:44 pm #78780
I got this fixed. Close thread. Just edited via wordpress editor after I reloaded woo commerce plug in. Unfortunately, it messed up alot of other stuff as I indicated in other posts. I am not a happy camper

If you use a hosting provider you should try to get the web files and database restored to before you made the changes. Was it a bad sign that found its way into the code or a character missing?June 18, 2012 at 4:35 am #78782
Did you edit anything else other than the demo file? If so, please reload the woocommerce plugin.

I edited on the demo file text. that was it. The slide show is working now. But of course, I lost all the products etc I had in the site. But I guess that is ok now as I find out woo commerce is not going to work for my client as there is no way to have it work with her Intuit Go payment credit card processing. I am just going to dump the woo commerce plug in. So I am looking for another alternative now.June 18, 2012 at 6:32 pm #78784
