Installing a WooCommerce Theme1:25 with Zac Gordon
In order to see a more generic, non themed version of how WooCommerce ships we will install a basic responsive theme. When you design your own site or choose a theme, it will likely do more to enhance how the WooCommerce portion of the content looks.
WooCommerce looks pretty solid in most themes that you would work with,
even custom ones.
It does have a number of its own classes that WooCommerce specific themes cover.
And you can often tell a WooCommerce site when you see one because of
its basic styling and interactions and just how some of it functions.
We're going to install a basic responsive theme from the dot org repository for
the remainder of this project, so we can get a feel for
a vanilla WooCommerce install.
If you know how to use the web inspector and edit css you could
likely customize a theme pretty far just by using css and
the custom e-commerce styles that come with WooCommerce and your theme.
To install our theme, let's come under Appearance>Themes>Add New.
And, we'll install the basic responsive theme, named Responsive.
Activate it, visit our site, and
see that we have the navigation pages that were added by WooCommerce.
However, we don't have any shop items yet.
So, in the next section we'll begin looking at how to
manage our products in WooCommerce.
