New Year’s Resolution

The THP Bazaar eCommerce site MUST be launched ASAP—with or without magic features for displaying font-specific glyph maps and test-drive views.

  • These state-of-the-art goodies developed by a code pro proved incompatible with updates of the eCommerce software originally selected.
  • They are offered by few font vendors besides, and font consumers do not expect them elsewhere.
  • They cost a fortune for brand-style coding, and THP most certainly cannot risk such an investment at this stage of development.

In the meantime, powerful eCommerce plug-ins have been developed for (familiar!) WordPress [WP], the same set of templates used for both the original site and the Chapel (this one).

After researching Easy Digital Downloads [EDD], I decided to “start over from scratch” with this top-rated, fully supported and amazingly comprehensive package tested by 521,260 WP users to date.

I like it! It gives me full control of how the site looks, works and connects with the two related sites. A few kinks remain in the transition between browsing [WP pages] and buying [EDD pages], and I’m working with EDD developers to solve them.

So far, 2015 has been devoted almost exclusively to this project. A demo is almost ready for inspection and feedback. Stay tuned for exciting developments!
