Hi,
I have created many of sites and with e-commerce based on the woocommerce and even single wordpress (non e commerce) sites using themler and even different methods (professional themes).

I have tried already similar tool like Themler (templatetoaster) so I have quite lot of experiences to make a comparison.

Briefly I have to say that If anybody who are using the Themler and knows some basics of php (and jQuery optionally) is not limited almost by anything and Themler as a quite powerful tool allows him/her to make very professional themes.

Of course we can find several problems here, especially quite high demands on computer performance while editing/making theme and fast internet connection is necessary.

I understand that Themler is multiCMS system and it is not only for Wordpress/Woocommerce, I have not try to make any theme for different CMS (I prefer Wordpress) but in general I think that the biggest weakness of the Themler is in e-commerce (woocommerce).

Tools for the product/product details and cart page allows user to make very obsolete ecommerce. Compatibility of woocommerce plugins to solve this issue is not so high and integration of these plugins are very difficult generally.

The biggest issue for me personally is very strange system for product design. It can be done only in the product page and it is working only here which is very uncomfortable, for example if user/author of theme wants to put any of the products to a different place (front page, cart page, etc..) which is very standart in eccommerce sites, it has to be done via widget which has to be designed again.

All standard methods for quering the products or using the shortcodes result in obtaining the product with any css applied for this, which is not good.

So my conclusion:

If the Themler is used for non ecommerce (woocommerce) themes, it is very effective and professional.
So far the possibilities for Woocommece are not so good and if the proffesional ecommerce site based on the Woocommerce is needed, than making it via Themler is more than a problematic issue.

If the developers will allow user to design single product for and the css will be applied globally for all products even obtained by shortcodes or queries, than Themler will make next big step to be one of the best tool for CMS systems at all.

Have a nice day

Best regards

Peter

Hi Peter,

Thank you very much for your input.
Unfortunately yes, Themler does not support styling of Woocommerce shortcodes and widgets sre supported as Product Slider only.
The request to support woocommerce shortcodes is already in our wish list. We periodically discuss this feature but is requires a lit of resources to implement in in the current structure of Themler themes.

Thank you,
Olivia

I have started using either the Divi theme or Woothemes theme for Woocommerce.
With Themler, the product page is hard to style with no way to position the long description, the product category pages more so, no way to style other objects such as up-sells, cross-sells when they appear. Then I have to resort to additional css to clean it up.
The other issue is that the Wordpress/Woocommerce behind Themler needs to have settings to display all the things before Themler styles can be set. I have added data to products, set display options etc then I can style them in the theme.
This is not just related to short codes.

Hi Len,

Thank you for your comments.

With Themler, the product page is hard to style with no way to position the long description

The product long description is always located in the Product Tabs control. But you can output it manually using CMS Code control (Insert tab >> More) with the following code:

<?php the_content(); ?>

The Cross-Sell and Up-Sells widgets use Product Slider style which can be edited in Themler.

Thank you,
Olivia
