Wordpress E-commerce


Hello,

I am just starting the creation of a wordpress forum to be used with e-commerce. I figured I would start a discussion thread here and chart my progress and ask for suggestions. Has anyone built an e-commerce website from scratch based on wordpress?
So far, I have tried wp-e-commerce but, after I installed this plug-in, I went to click on "settings" for this plug in and it told me that I did not have permissions to use the settings option. But I am the admin of the wordpress. I went through many resources E-Commerce Video to find more information and help but, did not find much information.
What do you think?
I have been told that the best known is WOOCOMMERCE. I might try that next.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Hello!

This is Wendy with Ecwid customer care team. Thanks a lot for getting in touch with us!

As far as I understand, you can't load Ecwid dashboard within your Wordpress admin. I am sorry to learn you faced this.

In general, in order to access Ecwid dashboard (it's under Ecwid plugin > Settings), a user should have “manage_options” rights. The site admin has the “manage_options” rights by default.

If you see a permission error when trying to access Ecwid dashboard, then, most likely, you are not the admin of your site. Probably, you use a plugin for users and roles management and this plugin removed “manage_options” rights from your account. If this is the case, please make sure to add these rights back for your user.

For more details on Wordpress users and roles, please refer to this article http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-...d-permissions/

I hope this will be helpful.

If you have other concerns, please feel free to write me back and it will be my pleasure to assist you further. Have a wonderful day!
