Look under the Manage Products menu item to view all your products.
FoxyPress allows you to list your products several ways. You can use shortcodes or the API. If you are using shortcodes, the look and feel can be edited via CSS classes that you can put into your theme’s CSS file. Read more on product template styling here. If you are using the API or a custom template, please review the resources here as you can create a completely custom store.
Very easily! We developed FoxyPress to keep the files on your server so you don’t have to depend on another hosting solution just to serve downloadable files. Simply fill in the digital download information: name, max downloads, and browse to the file. Save your product and the asset will be delivered to your customer’s inbox after a purchase.
Since digital downloads are stored on your file server, depending on the file size you are uploading, you may need to modify your .htaccess file or your php.ini file to increase the max file size allowed for an upload. php.ini example:
upload_max_filesize = 50M post_max_size = 55M
php_value upload_max_filesize 50M php_value post_max_size 55M
Indeed you can. We’ve built a CSV importer to upload basic product details such a code, name, description, price, and some simple options. You can find a sample file here. To upload your inventory, install FoxyPress and then look for the import/export menu item and follow the steps outlined there. If you have a request for an import from a specific CMS you are currently using, please contact us.
Of course! FoxyPress will work with any WordPress framework or theme that you have installed. The product templates will need to be styled to fit your site however.
You do not need to use the FoxyPress datafeed, however, it is necessary to use features such as downloadable products or inventory management. We have added the ability to supply multiple datafeed endpoints through the Settings page so you should be able to use all of the FoxyPress functionality in addition to any other services you might be utilizing.
Single Sign on is functionality provided by FoxyCart, which is documented here. We’ve built the ability into WordPress to let your users create a user account through WordPress and sync it up to FoxyCart so users can check out with one login, instead of one for WordPress and one for FoxyCart.
FoxyPress does not generate any category pages for you, so please check out our tutorial on creating category pages here.
Sometimes if you copy and paste from the website, characters can become different. Please make sure you are using single quotes for the shortcode and not something else.
We’ve given products the ability to have comments applied to them, similar to a page or a post. Simply enable or disable comments for each product through the product grid quick edit, or on the individual product editing screen near the bottom of the page.
Make sure that you have write permissions to the inventory_images folder.
Windows IIS hosting is different from Linux and often requires that index.php be part of the url. We have a setting available on the Manage Settings page that you can define your custom base url in.
