The project : modify the existing WP theme so we can add a new type of posts with specific features
What we want:
We want to import new products in the website. These are a new type of products, we call them AF-products (afficiate products). They must reference their featured image from another website (a url given in the csv import file) and be easily placed in the website
What you have to do:
-Make the theme use the new type of products (AF- products) (affiliate)
-Create a sollution so the featured image of these products is referenced from a different website
-Using existing shortcodes, create another shortcode to reference these AF-products, using tags or cathegories.
The site is superportofele.ro
It sells wallets, but we need to populate this site with some affiliate products (calles AF-products) which look exactly as the original products. When a visitor clicks on a product, the site won;t display the single post page, but will redirect the visitor to a different page. The url has to be provided.
There is a specific type of posts, named projects (comprised in the portofolio). That type of posts asks the admin to provide an URL. If that url exists, when someone clicks that posts (title or featured image) will be redirected to that specific URL. So you can use the existing code for the new type of posts you will implement.
These Affiliate Products, wil have a featured image. This featured image is provided by the Admin via import page. (the url is on a different website). We recomment the use of the TimThumb plugin to reference the featured image of these AF-posts.
Using existing shortcodes, create another shortcode to populate a given page with AF-products.
Specific features for the AF-products:
-they use the same template as the normal products
-are generated by shortcodes
-their featured images are stored on a different website
Do not modify the Jigoshop plugin. Modify the theme . If necesary, create another plugin.
At the end , provide the files modified along with instructions to reuse the work on a different theme.
You can use existing theme and jigoshop plugin as a workframe.
The project is done when:
-products are imported succesfully
-we can select the AF-products using shortcodes, with arguments to display specific tags
The documentation is not yet complete, so if you read this, you must allow us some time to finish it.
We will provide ftp acces to an installed theme with Jigoshop Plugin.
