  • Ads Banner:

  • 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.

  • 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:

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.

    • 10


      October 19, 2011 5:00 am

      Hi Thomas
      yes we will expand to other plugin like Cart66, woocommerce, Jigo and more. so you should wait our new themes release soon :D

      • 11

        Awesome news, I was just about to comment on this. There are so many better solutions than WP E-commerce. Thanks for this freebie guys, it’s awesome!

        Hi Anggi,

        Really nice work. I’ve just visited Tokokoo website. What about the Toko Bajoo theme? I tried to download the theme, but did not seem to work.

      • 14

        Can we make two product page in this theme?
        is it possible to do that?

    Beautiful Theme, Thank you for supporting the WordPress Community Tokokoo, Amazing work..

  7. 16

    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.

  8. 17

    it is possible to make the database instance?

  9. 18

    Very nice theme! Too bad it’s based on the WordPress E-commerce plugin… WordPress Shopp plugin for the win!! ;-)

      October 19, 2011 6:05 am

      No offense. but so far the biggest free ecommerce plugin for WordPress community support by Dan Milward and getshopped team. so i can appreciate with balita theme :)

  10. 20

    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.

  11. 21

    Demo not loading. Seems we’ve overloaded their site!

    • 22


      October 19, 2011 6:32 am

      absolutely right :( please be patient or you can download and install it at your localhost. dont forget to install WPEC plugin

      • 23

        It’s really beautiful and I think it is the best of tokokoo theme,
        tokokoo is one of the best WordPress eCommerce theme from Indonesia. I’m really proud of it.

        keep up the good work guys..

  12. 25

    Amazing WP theme. If I had an e-commerce site, I’d consider it.

    note to self: upgrade server before Smashing publishes my theme.

  21. 36

    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.

  22. 37

    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 :)

    October 19, 2011 5:16 pm

    Hi Guys, i’m really sorry for inconvenient about down the server.
    now everything is working perfectly :)

    Sweet looking theme, nice work.

  37. 52

    So what’s the catch? Do you have to pay for the documentation on this one?

    • 53


      October 20, 2011 3:10 am

      you can find the documentation via the doc folder, we made PDF format
      please check again

  38. 54

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

    • 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.

      • 56

        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.

  39. 57

    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?

  40. 58

    beautifull themes and i’m proud indonesian designers hits the smashing now

    Nice work Tokokoo.

    Smashing should consider writing an article, How to survive GetShopped. It’s so buggy.

  42. 60

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

  43. 61

    Awesome theme, brilliant job by tokokoo. Keep up the good work :)

  44. 62

    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.

    • 63


      October 20, 2011 6:53 pm

      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.

      • 65

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

  45. 66

    Wow! :) Absolutely love it!

    Awesome Theme and It’s Responsive too!

  47. 68

    Waiting for Tokokoo to send through information regarding rectification of an error in the Slider implementation within the SM download package.

  48. 69

    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.

  49. 71

    I love Smashing Magazine & Tokokoo! Thanks for the free theme!

    Also, here is good article : for about Tokokoo!

  50. 72

    Stunning theme! I might consider using Balita theme once I start an ecommerce shop. Definitely will be using WordPress and Tokokoo themes :) Keep up the good work, guys!

  51. 73

    Cheers guys!

  52. 74

    Great work. 100% Made in Indonesia. proud of it :)

  53. 75

    Can’t get the “Slider” to work this this theme.
    Have sent of numerous support tickets with no response.
    Have reinstalled an unmodified theme and the sliders don’t work with it, either.

    Does the theme package require “write” permissions for specific directories?

    Any help greatly appreciated (since none is forthcoming from Tokokoo!)

    • 76


      October 24, 2011 6:37 am

      our team has been given the updated via your Twitter and support. Enjoy it :)

      • 77

          Hi Chris,

          Can you please send me a link to download the updated theme, Slider is not working in the theme i downloaded.

          Any help would be greatly appreciated.


        • 79

          Hi Chris,
          Can you please send me a link to download the upadated theme? Because my slider is not working in my theme.

    Thanks for sharing it!

  55. 83

    Any progress on updating the hosted theme to include the IE fixes? I’m hoping to go live in the next few days and won’t be if my site isn’t rendering correctly in IE.

    Also, is anyone else having issues with the RSS section of ‘Follow Us’ appearing even when no RSS feed details have been entered into the backend?

  56. 84

    is anyone else having issues getting the homepage slider to show the image? the navigation dots are there, but not the images.

    • 89

      There was an issue with the Nivo slider in the first Balita theme that was uploaded …

      It was subsequently fixed as per Angie’s comment.

      View my modified Balita theme at – it’s a work in progress.

    • 90

      Help, I’m having issues with the slider, I know it was fixed but the picture is not loading but it has the dots, and when you click on the picture it shows up as another page.

    The documentation pdf doesn`t state what preferences to set in the store settings.

    For example size to set the images in
    settings > store > presentation
    I guess these image sizes set the product grid view, main image and additional image thumbnails?


    product display (default/grid view etc)
    cart location (page/widget)

    • 96

      For size image is for default from WPEC plugin, Product display (grid and list). For our theme, we using our settings. :)

  65. 97

    Hi guys, thanks so much for this awesome theme.

    One problem I discovered is “Quantity In Cart” doesn’t show up in products. Anyone else facing same problem? Cheers.

    Hi Great theme! Thanks SM!

    Is there any way to find out how to enable the icons (the class names for the li’s) in the header nav?
    Tried looking thru the documentation but I can’t find it.

    Thanks again for a fantastic theme!

    • 100

      Nevermind! Doh!
      Just click “Screen Options” and select “CSS Classes” under “Show advanced menu properties”.

      It helps to read the documentation properly :)
      Thanks Tokokoo!

      • 101

        Sorry for late reply. Yo, You can see the styke from our site ;)

        Best regard,

      • 102


        I’m a complete dunce… how do you add an icon to the top nav?

        What sort of code am I putting in: CSS Classes (optional)

        Please help! :)

  67. 103

    Tokokoo never included the “Add slider Image” function to the theme. Does anyone have the code to fix this custom post type so that we can add the slider images?


    • 104

      We include this feature. You can upload the image is like set the “featured images”.

      Best regard,
      Onnay Okheng

      • 105

        Thanks for your help.. I realised that the mulitside plugin I am using, is conflicting with the theme functions and disables the “set slider picture”.

        I should be able to figure out a solution eventually.

        Great work guys – thanks for your help anyway.


  68. 106

    It breaks the javascript in the admin pages so I can’t expand the sub-menus on the left. Uploading the slider images causes it to lose the left menu entirely.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    • 107

      @Conrad walton
      What do you mean “break javascript menu” in admin dashboard? No, I’ve just upload new slider through demo themes and it works fine. No javascript that break in dashboard area.

      Yes, maybe it clash with other plugin do you used. Please check it back, we’ll be looking forward into this discussion :)

      Thank you so much!

  69. 108

    Oh, you fixed it … Big thnx ! ;)

    Thank you for this theme, it works perfect for me but I want to add product list in home page just below featured image slider, How to solve this problem? Help me..

    Hi, I desperately need some help here. After I unzippled balita package I get another zipped file which I unzipped as well. Then after I’ve installed the theme all I see is a home link.

    Am I missing something? How do I add more links next to the home link? I still can’t figure this out.

    Thanks for your help.

    Balita doesn’t support product variations, the “add to cart” animation sticks, and related products are set at $0.00 when a product uses a variation.
    How do we fix this?

    I created a sandbox wordpress website with ONLY balita and ONLY wp-ecommerce activated, so it is not a conflicting plugin.

    The “add to cart” animation displays correctly WITHOUT varitions, and “related products” are priced correctly WITHOUT variations.

  103. 147

    How to configure the theme to display product links instead of blog post links for the thumbnail row just below the slider section?

  104. 148

    Thank you for sharing this stuff!!

  105. 149

    I’ve downloaded the Balita theme multiple times, thinking that I had the problem, but it seems like it’s either WP or Balita. I am not able to unzip the file. I am not able to upload it through WP or my server. Does anyone know how to fix this? It’s so frustrating. Thanks.

      Hi Shelby, you have to unzip the file that you downloaded from here and then you will find “BALITA”, “”, & “doc” upload the “” file to WordPress and then you are all set :).

    Nice theme.. Awesome to see Indonesian’s theme published here.. :)

  115. 161

    is it only will be one BLOG page when we upload balita themem to our wordpress?

    How to make shop page all looks same as demo website shop page?
    Could someone help on this?


  116. 162

    There is something really wrong with this theme. The only things I have downloaded are the theme and wp-ecommerce. There is nothing else activated and the layout is way out of wack.

  117. 163

    Hi, thanks so much for this lovely template. Can we please confirm that we can make any changes to the template we want? However, I’m assuming we are not allowed to remove the copyright logo on the bottom of the home screen?

  118. 164

    Thanks for sharing…much appreciated.

  119. 165

    In the Menu Balita, submenu Theme options wp-admin/admin.php?page=tokokoo, I have a problem, on the form, I get a list of warnings:

    Warning: Illegal string offset ‘title’ in /home/d1/htdocs/www/petrocable/wp-content/themes/balita/admin/admin-interface.php on line 1081

    What’s the problem and the solution?

  120. 166

    Lovely theme. I just opened an online store and I’m using this one. Thanks so much for making it a free theme! It took me a while to figure out how to make it look and function like the demo site. Like others who commented, the layout was all out of whack at first — the slider and the jquery thumbnails didn’t work and the Balita admin was frozen so I couldn’t even upload a logo. I reinstalled it and everything started working perfectly! One weird thing though, I updated the WP-ecommerce plugin and now the grid view isn’t working. Its default to list view and there’s an option to purchase to get the grid view. Anyone else having this issue?

  121. 167


    I can’t get the theme to work. It just shows the header on the website even though all the content is on the page and I can see it when I click the “Visual” tab on Edit Page.

    I’ve deleted all other plugins and the other themes I had installed. What am I doing wrong?


  122. 168

    I have been looking for an e-commerce supporting theme where I can show case some of the affiliate products online. Do you think this can support or have any idea that can help me in this project?

    Can’t get to work the variations, they don’t show on the single products page and when I click add to cart it just sticks and it doesn’t work.

    How can I fix it?


  124. 170

    Hi,I really liked tis theme, but unfortunately after uploading “” file to WordPress I faced a problem of not installing the theme> As I noticed later the zip file was damaged.
