We’ve had a look at the WooCommerce Core Plugin and now we will discuss a few of the WooCommerce themes. Most of these themes have similar theme options, features and functionality, so we’ll talk about some of these.
Wootique is a customisable theme with minimal design that WooThemes are offering for free. There is a really great homepage slider to showcase your Featured Products and it offers great animation – it allows you to flip a product image to view further information on that product.
Apart from the slider you can customise the homepage with adjusting the footer, changing the background, adjusting the menu and adding a background image. The Wootique theme options panel is great, no long page loading when you are setting up your pages.
Simplicity is a WooCommerce child theme (to use the theme it needs to be downloaded and installed with the WooCommerce plugin, along with the Simplicity parent theme). The overall design is just like the name says, simple and really nifty too. What’s really great is you can restyle it to your own needs using the styling options panel. Like all the other Woo themes, Simplicity has a the sidebar feature where you can add widgets that will make searching your products easier.
This theme has a lot of advanced settings in the theme option panel. Of course you can still do the usual adjustments to the layout, slider and typography, but they have added some other very cool features e.g. you can change your page template to a magazine or business layout (the support documentation guides you through this setup). In the theme option panel you can adjust your header styling as well as your post, widget and footer styling. In my opinion, the Canvas theme provides great theme options to set up your website.
The theme options panel is more advanced than the Wootique panel. You can make 3 different presets that contain slider settings, and with one click you can change your settings. In my opinion, if you could manage your entire layout with these settings it would be really awesome.
There is an extensive panel where you can adjust your typography of your navigation, widget titles, post titles and your general typography. You can adjust you slider with settings like animation speed and slide interval.
