Step 1:  Check main page shortcode

When using Elementor, you will be wrapping EasyCart into the Elementor modules and must use the ‘shortcode’ module rather than a text editor system.  Text editor modules interpret code differently, and to eliminate possible errors, be sure to check your store page, cart page, and account page that easycart constructed and that they are using the proper ‘shortcode’ module.

Quick Check Items:
  1. Store page should have:  [ec_store] in the shortcode module.
  2. Cart page should have:  [ec_cart] in the shortcode module.
  3. Account page should have:  [ec_account] in the shortcode module.

 

 

Step 2:  Use our NEW EasyCart Element

We offer a new Elementor EasyCart element that you can add to a page and gives access to host of awesome features found in elementor designer.

 

Once you add the element, you have access to the sidebar tools and design features.  Create sliders or product grids, change columns, and image designs all from inside elementor.

Elementor lets you change many basic features.

  • Add titles & descriptions to your display
  • Select specific products, categories or brands to add to the display
  • Adjust product count and sort orders of your products
  • Use Grid or Slider layout modes to enhance visually
  • Customize column counts, product image corners, borders and more.
  • Choose from 6 different product display types created by EasyCart.
  • Align text and elements in your display as well as visible items such as titles, prices, descriptions and more

Step 3:  Using Shortcode Directly

Many users prefer to use shortcode directly.  If you feel comfortable doing so, you can use this option if you like.  Just search for the ‘shortcode’ element and add your shortcode directly.

You can view our Shortcode dictionary here:  EasyCart Shortcode

We also offer a shortcode text editor system as well as Gutenberg Blocks if you decide to not utilize the Elementor on a specific page.

Step 4:  Using WordPress Sidebar Widgets with Elementor

Elementor also offers WordPress widgets as modules, and because EasyCart comes with several widgets you can see those in the WordPress section within the Elementor sidebar region.  We prefer you utilize our newer method in ‘Step 2’ as these widgets are really designed for sidebars and the widget area found in WordPress, but will work in most cases here as well within elementor.
