Add WooCommerce to your Site

With Opportune Pro, you get the option to setup an e-commerce shop on your website with the very popular plugin called “WooCommerce“. Although this theme is not built to be a full WooCommerce theme, it does give you an amazing look and style to be proud of when displaying and selling items. To see this in action, you can visit the demo:

WooCommerce Shop Demo

Whatever you sell, you can be sure that Opportune Pro will give you a very clean minimal style for WooCommerce. But this theme does not have this capability available until you go to the customizer and enabled it, so this tutorial will show you how this is done.

Note What this tutorial does not do, is show you how to install and setup WooCommerce — Please refer to their documentation.

Turn on WooCommerce Elements

The first thing you will need to do is to make sure you have WooCommerce installed and active. The options you will enable through this theme will turn on the custom theme styling for it, and also a few other elements, including 2 custom sidebars that can be used for your online shop. More on this in a moment.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Options
  2. Find the “Turn on WooCommerce Elements” and check the box
    enable woocommerce
  3. Click “Save & Publish

Custom Sidebars for WooCommerce

By default, you won’t see these when you install Opportune Pro until you enable WooCommerce from the customizer. But with this theme, you get 2 custom sidebars:

  • WooCommerce Left Sidebar
  • WooCommerce Right Sidebar

These will only show up when you choose the template(s) for your shopping pages.
