+Debra McCormick hi debra, great question. i would check out the table rate
shipping plugin at woo themes. you can also contact their support directly
re: this premium theme. they are also on twitter to help. this is a premium
plugin and i do not have a license for this one, so best to ask woothemes
directly. thanks for your comment!

Lazlo Mortimer says:

Thank you for the tutorial. Kadence’s tutorials are not good at all.
Perhaps you could sub-contract with them to produce better ones.

Krista Ritskes says:

Thank you so much for this video! I was feeling so overwhelmed in setting
up my new site, coming from blogger, and you have made it pretty much
crystal clear. 

Kim Brillon says:

Hi Katrina, thanks for the great tutorial! The only question I have is what
plugin to use for this theme so people can comment on the blog posts?

Lee .Zimmer says:

Katrina, thanks for the great tutorial. I have watched it several times
while building my website. One thing I am not clear about is how the email
works. I know how to set up an email account through Hostgator but how do
I use it for my website once it is set up? Do messages posted on the blog
or on the contact me page go through the email? As you can tell, I am new
to all of this.

Mian Ehtisham says:

Christian Frolet says:

Hi Katrinah
I have created an email address ( on the Hostgator
cPanel which I set on the General settings and on on the
Woocommerce/settings/email address sections. I receive customer
notification orders and emails but never anything written from the contact
form. I’ve checked the forums but I still don’t get it.

Whew! Excellent video. Do you have any follow-ups videos for how to
manage carts, ie, when customers need to be reminded there are still items
in their cart. Also, some information about how to use ecommerce to get
your website out into public hands? That would be awesome. Thanks for the
hard work!

Great Job! It would be great if you also cover Virtue Premium. There are
many changes from the basic Virtue. You did a stellar presentation!

Hello Katrina, Thank You! I love your video and I love this Virtue theme. I
like everything about and I think it would be perfect for my business.
Accept that my business is services but I don’t sell any merchandise. Is it
possible to only activate some of the functions from the woocomerce
plugin, or do you recommend I use a different theme? Thank You in advance
for your help!

Hi Katrinah!

First…just to say thanks for this great tutorial video about Virtue theme!

at 2:45m (when you show what will it look like in the end) you show a
possibility to share a blog post in social networks. I don´t think you
included in the video how to set this up…can you please share how to do
it? Is this a plugin? Which one?
Thanks for the help!

Best Regards ;)

Michael McLaughlin says:

Great videos – I have Customizr on one of my websites – but it doesn’t look
anything like what you’ve done! Thanks for all the great ideas and
information about how to optimize Customizr! Have you had any experience
with the “X” Theme? It seems pretty versatile, and I’m on the fence between
Genesis and “X”. Have you done an “X” tutorial? – Will you do an “X”

Robert091254 says:

Thanks again Katrina, another well done video! I like the design so much
but I’m not ready to add the products or shopping cart. Can that be done

Hi Katrinah…….thanks first of all..this is really a useful video..but
I’m having a problem in opening up the link provided in wordpress email
which has been sent to me after installing the ‘wordpress’ tool..I really
don’t have a clue what has gone wrong with it? .this’s the link for my
website……..I would appreciate if
you can help me in this regard.. 

Natalie Menacho says:

I soooo appreciate your tutorials! Thank you so much!! :D

Britt Mittemeijer says:

There is a note on my site that says: “Your theme has bundled outdated
copies of WooCommerce template files – if you encounter functionality
issues on the frontend this could the reason. Ensure you update or remove
them (in general we recommend only bundling the template files you actually
need to customize). See the system report for full details.” — I updated
to the latest Woo 2.1.9, and deleted (or so I thought) the previous plugin.
Evidently it was not fully deleted.
What do you suggest?
