    Greg your information is excellent and importantly gives me the confidence to give this a go. I’ve spent many hours looking at your tutorials and I am about to take the plunge and start building. I am a coach for food and sport, not selling a physical product more down- loadable workout routines in combination with whole foods nutrition plans and coaching services. It seems like choosing the appropriate theme saves time, I came across this site
    https://colorlib.com/wp/best-wordpress-fitness-themes/, should I use the themes you have recommended or the themes on this site?
    Thank you

    I purchased the Virtue Premium theme this past March, I’m trying to use it for another website I’m building, but it doesn’t show as available when searching for themes on WordPress, and the original download link I have no longer works. What happened?

    I have a question at 1:32:09

    Product Categories

    I see the ADD NEW PRODUCT CATEGORY

    You have coffee makers and clothing

    Say I wanted to delete, coffee makers, How is this done?

    I have looked all over the place, I do now see a remove, delete.

    Hi Greg, I’ve got as far as purchasing the theme tool but my website is very different from yours. I’m going to be selling made to measure curtains and blinds with various fabrics, size options, different styles etc so would be so grateful for some guidance ? Thank you Sandie 🙂

    No doubt this is a great video but studying a bit shortcodes can help to create feature products or on Sales products display without use Virtue premium 😉

    Hi Greg, thanks for sharing the video. Just a quick question: If I have to do the same for a subscription based e-commerce business (like old Netflix), then there are two cost drivers: price per rented-day and # of rented-days. Can we add such options using WordPress?

  50. whaHappend June 13, 2017 at 3:08 am - Reply

    Hey, I just downloaded the free version, did a couple of tests and suddenly when trying to customize, I get the hourglass that runs and runs and runs like it’s loading an image or something. Woke up 8 hours later and still trying to load so………I uninstalled the theme and reinstalled and still trying to load something. Maybe the theme casts a spell on those who don’t buy it, but I’d appreciate some hints as to how to get the hourglass from running and displaying at least a blank page or something or any other working behavior. Thanks
