Balita Theme: Features Link

  • WordPress E-Commerce Plugin:
    It will help you generate your e-commerce store on a WordPress platform. The Balita WordPress theme uses a powerful plugin to encourage the functionality of WordPress used.
  • jQuery Slider:
    It helps potential customers to generate general information about your online store and its products at a quick glance.
  • Custom Shopping Cart:
    The custom shopping cart notifies customers about the total amount of items and pricing within their shopping carts.
  • Product List With Grid View:
    Customers can easily compare the general overview and price of the products.
  • HTML5 + CSS3 Optimized:
    Latest tech weapons for the prime look of your online store.
  • Ads Banner:
    Show off, promote, sell ads… anything! Each inch on your website is worth the attention.
  • Product Slider:
    Our aim is to make e-Commerce as interesting and as profitable for you as possible. If you wish to have a vivid description for your product showcases, product slider will be a good match.
  • Zoomable Product Images:
    Allow your customers to get a closer look at your product. Your customers want to see high-detailed pictures of your product when making purchase decisions.
  • Search Products:
    It helps shoppers to find and buy products on your site without having to browse each and every page. You can place an input text form on the sidebar that allows shoppers to quickly and easily find your site.
  • Blog Integration:
    This is a powerful tool on the Web to help build trust and provide updates for people who could be your potential clients. The theme already provides you with this feature — all you have to so is prepare the contents.
  • Related Products:
    The idea of cross-selling basically means offering alternatives and additions to the current product which are considered. The most common way of doing this is by presenting within the site’s product details page, which is usually manually assigned. This may be known as the “Related Products” or “Similar Products” page, but might also be a manually assigned “Accessories” page or even more generic recommendations using the titles “May We Suggest” or “You May Also Like”.
  • Multiple Product Images:
    Do you happen to have a lot images for particular products which you sell on your online store? No problem. This theme and its functions will help and let you upload multiple images at once for the products you sell.
  • Multiple Widget Areas:
    You can place widgets on any suggested area. Otherwise, all of our themes support widget allocation almost anywhere, but not limited to the sidebar.
  • Facebook Page Integration:
    This feature enables you to market your products through one of the biggest social networks around the world. Reach the highest sales potential with this Facebook integration feature.

Behind the Design Link

As always, here are some insights from the designers:

“We designed the brand logo section as well as the navigation below to be very clear so that this theme looks neat and attractive. We made the single product page to look clean so users would concentrate more on products and thus is free of distractions. Contents are on the left side, while the add-to-cart button are on the right side, beside the contents.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get this free Balita Theme because there are not many ways you can get a free premium theme everyday. Last but not least, once again, thank you Smashing Magazine for the opportunity.”

Thank you, Tokokoo. We appreciate your work and your good intentions!

    I would really love to see this theme go cross plugin. There are a bunch of shop plugins, and it would be cool if it worked out of the box with a few of these (wp e-commerce, woocommerce, shopp to name a few). Because the theme looks just beautiful, and I would love to give it a spin on my shop that uses woocommerce.

      Hi Thomas

    Has WordPress finally gotten to the point where it can do solid e-commerce? Most WP developers I’ve known for the past 5 years or so have always made e-commerce out to be virtually inviable on WP, outside of using sites like CoreCommerce or what not.

    Does Tokokoo do a blank wordpress e-commerce theme? That would be fantastic, I can’t seem to find one and going from a completely naked wordpress to integrated wp e-commerce (modifying all the stylesheets) can be somewhat of a lengthy process.. just a thought..

    great theme though.

    Nice work guys. I think that your designs are stunning to say the least.

    Another great theme for sites running the WP e-Commerce Plugin. Not only is this theme testament to how good the Tokokoo team is but I think that it is also testament to how extendable the WP e-Commerce Plugin actually is these days.

    Seems very nice! It’s a shame that the demo and author website has been down all day.. This seems worthwhile enough for me to bookmark for the future and I’m interested in seeing the authors premium themes.. but I would definitely make it a priority to get this remedied immediately… not everyone on the interwebs are so forgiving :)

    Nice theme, especially single product pages.
    Any idea if this is compatible with IE7 & IE8?

    0
    • 55

      Apologies for not seeing your post, before I posted. The live demo is hosed when viewing in IE7 and 8. If this was a design portfolio theme, you could make the argument for IE9 only support, however with e-commerce you really need to support at least IE8 if not IE7. Not my preference I personally would love it if everybody used modern browsers, but pull a report of the browsers coming into commerce sites and you will more than likely find the majority are IE8, with some IE7, and a sliver of IE9. It’s unfortunate, but its the reality we deal with.

        I started off viewing through Chrome, then tried my IE8. Wasn’t even remotely usable. It would appear that most of the posters here use something other then IE and never even noticed. Shame too. Was really a nice theme.

    I supposed it would be the acme of foolishness to point out that the live demo of this theme doesn’t work in IE, right?

    Go here and add the small piece of code to the header of the theme to make it work in all versions of IE…

    I’ve just done an install and have noted that the slider hyper links on the home page don’t work. I’ve read the documentation and can’t get the slider images to link to specific URLs.

      You must using http:// to get URL work, please try again :)

      • 64

        Yes, I’ve tried the correct naming protocol in the URL within the “Slider Link” field.
        The link doesn’t work – when the image on the slider is clicked it remains on the same page and doesn’t open the new link.

        I’ve also noticed that the slider in the online preview version of the WordPress theme doesn’t have clickable links.

    Great theme, I’m hoping to use it for my wife’s home business.

    Can someone confirm if the Gold Cart plugin is necessary for this theme, or will it work fine without?

    While I’d consider adding Gold Cart in future, I’m hesitant to spend the $40 it costs without running this theme for a little while first.
