    Amazing WordPress Theme. Thanks for sharing, Adrian.

    • Taryn Mar 6, 12:22 pm

      Yeh – Except it’s NOT free at all- you have to buy the genesis framework in order to get the “free theme” what a waste of time…

      • David Robinson Apr 11, 3:36 pm

        How have at least 45 people given this ridiculously stupid post a thumbs up? You dont have to pay anything to download the Ayoshop theme, therefore it is free. What is confusing about that?

      • Jay Apr 12, 1:18 am

        It’s a Genesis child theme… what part of that did you miss?

  2. Ionut B Jan 8, 3:39 pm

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
    am i doing something wrong?

    • Adrian Jan 8, 3:45 pm

      IMPORTANT! Please note, when using child themes, the presence of the Genesis Framework containing folder in the directory /wp-content/themes/ is a must.

      • Alexandru Vornicescu Jan 8, 5:29 pm

        this means we should purchase the Genesis Framework to use this theme?

      • Cindy Jul 10, 9:04 pm

        I’ve installed the Genesis framework and it still says the css is missing. Is there an update somewhere that has fixed this???

        • Russell Jun 12, 1:45 am

          Take the zip file and load in a folder unzip the file you should see a file in it that contains the actual child-theme. Upload it. Enjoy.

  3. Erik Jacobs Jan 9, 5:57 am

    nothing is free in the end, :D

  4. Frank Jan 10, 11:22 am

    Don’t get fooled, this isn’t free. You need the Genesis framework cost $60,-. This is in my opinion misleading.

    • AyoThemes Jan 10, 2:01 pm

      Genesis framework is one time purchase with lifetime update. You can use it in as many website as you want. So, just like @Adrian said, is free for people who already have Genesis Framework :).

    • Jinson Abraham Jan 11, 12:07 pm

      Indeed one have to pay for genesis framework to use the genesis child themes. But you have to consider that almost all the child themes from studiopress are also paid themes. Its not often you would get a child theme of this quality with responsive layout, woocom integrated and bbpress compatible for absolutely free.

      • Gatewayman May 15, 11:51 pm

        I disagree. Buy the Pro Plus Package and you get all Studiopress present and future theme at a once all (not recurrent fee). It is the most economic and productive theme purchase I’ve ever made and I I have made a number I quite regret.

        • Faiek Galant Aug 23, 4:23 pm

          Agree 100% , you really cannot go wrong with genesis amd its a once off. There is nothing misleading about this theme , it is indeed free and a fantastic theme , thanks to the guys for providing us with this theme.

          Do yourselves a favor , invest in the genesis framework.

  5. Dien tro Jan 11, 5:12 am

    So good! Thanks so much!

  6. John Doe Jan 14, 10:19 am

    I am wondering , What license does it released under ?
    I know its free, but is it 100% GPL ? ( Legally It should be in my opinion , as the parent Studiopress is 100% GPL).

  7. Vasily Feb 2, 2:19 pm

    Hi! Great theme! Thank you!
    Nice and clear but doesn’t works in IE 8.0 and below.
    Did you know that?

    • AyoThemes Mar 1, 2:16 am

      The theme is not support for IE 7 and below. In IE 8 yes kinda buggy.

  8. Andrew Feb 4, 4:27 pm

    I’m having a problem installing the theme. I’m getting this error:
    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    I do have Genesis installed, so I don’t know what the problem might be.

    Have any suggestions?

    • Andrew Feb 4, 9:02 pm

      Ok, I got it activated by uploading it in FTP. (I am very new to this – so that was impressive for me – lol)

      I’m now looking to change the size of the homepage slider, or figure out the size of the images that are used in the slider. Right now my images are very stretched.

      • AyoThemes Mar 1, 2:19 am

        For now, you need to edit some CSS if want to resize the slider width. I’m planning to update the theme in next couple weeks *crossfinger :)


        • Tom May 30, 7:16 am

          Hi I am completely new to this I bought the genesis framework and installed it
          I download the after I tried to install it I get the error:
          The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
          Theme install failed.

          What should I do

          • Ott Dec 17, 4:48 pm

            unzip the file you downloaded and upload the folder into your themes directory using ftp (filezilla, etc)

  9. Nitram Feb 16, 10:48 am

    Adrian, loving the theme, but am not succeeding in setting it up to look like yours – am i missing some menu settings to get the search field and contact field up there? even though having installed and set up all recommended plugins, there is nothing written about it in the documentation.

  10. Craig Burnett Mar 1, 2:54 am


    I have the Genesis Framework and have installed this Child Theme; on the demo page it states under Plugins that it has: Aqua Page Builder.

    I can not find this plugin within my admin area, nor can I find it in the: Add New Plugin options.

    Please could some one advise on how I can find this and activate it to use, or if it is using another name?

    Thank you in advance…

    • Craig Burnett Mar 2, 2:40 am

      Hi I have managed to figure this out now. However, on this theme there is a drop down page at the side of the search function… does any person know what this plugin is called ?

      Thank you in advance

    • AyoThemes Mar 2, 3:53 am

      You can get that plugin here
      On the next update AyoShop will have full support with Aqua Page Builder plugin :)

      Cheer :)

  11. Kevin Mar 5, 11:52 pm

    Love AyoShop! I’m wondering if there will be an update for the new version of woocommerce?

    Thank you-

    • nick Mar 6, 6:49 am

      something just happened overnight with mine. the woocommerce tabs for description and so on are all messed up. They now show up as a list and the images are all over the place

      • AyoThemes Mar 6, 10:42 am

        Yes, there is some depreciate function from jQuery UI so the tabs is not work properly. We will update the theme in next two weeks.


    • AyoThemes Mar 6, 10:40 am

      No, not yet. Still on progress, probably in next two weeks we will update the themes.


      • casper Feb 24, 4:29 pm

        It is now Feb, 24th 2014 and downloaded AyoShop v 1.1 a couple of days ago.
        Although this theme is very promising, tabs are still not working.

        When will this be solved ? I cannot go into production without this.
        If not solved inside the theme, how can it be made active via a workaround (code, plugin, etc.) ?


  12. Tina Felipe Mar 7, 9:18 pm

    Hi, I’m working on my Ayoshop Theme with Genesis but I can not find out how I can link the images on the homepageslider to the shop ect… just like you did in the demo in the box below please help I’ve tryed erything without any luck. Hope you can help me thank you

  13. Phil Fox Mar 7, 11:46 pm

    Hi, Love the theme, but I can’t get the WooCommerce Cart to appear in the primary sidebar. If I change the theme to Twenty Eleven and put the WooCommerce Cart in a sidebar widget, it appears OK. If I then revert back to Ayoshop theme it appears OK, until I clear the cart, and then add another product, the sidebar cart does not reappear.

  14. Emily Genevish Mar 18, 8:00 pm

    Any news on the update? Tabs look bad as a bulleted list :(

    • Kevin Apr 4, 5:49 pm

      Looking forward to the update here too….Can’t go into production until then :(

  15. Rohith Mar 21, 2:49 pm


    thanks for the theme,
    it is very good…

    i have some issues, with theme…

    if possible someone can give me the solution….


  16. Robbie Seath Mar 21, 6:07 pm

    Awesome theme guys, just can’t seem to get the slider to work as I need.
    It always seems to mess up, and when I try and remove it, the loading bars stay there and It messes up the general layout.

    I can turn it off in the code, but then the featured products and widgets also stop working.

    any help would be appreaciated :)


    • Robbie Seath Mar 22, 6:38 pm

      It doesn’t matter, got a 3rd party slider working well :)

      Is there possibly a way to get different categories showing on separate pages. Not just having tem all under shop, so I can have a dropdown menu of categories on my menu.

      cheers again.

      • Hadi Farnoud Apr 10, 7:13 pm

        I have the same problem, Slider does not work. what did you do?

  17. Bob Roman Apr 7, 10:26 am

    This theme is very good. I’m a fan of Genesis framework and the I think this free theme is a great bonus for someone trying to open a eCommerce online business.

  18. Hadi Farnoud Apr 7, 11:37 pm

    any update?

    I don’t think it works with Genesis 1.8 anymore

  19. Shiddiq Apr 9, 5:45 am

    I have installing this theme to my blog, but can not finished..
    this is the message..

    Installing Theme from uploaded file:
    Unpacking the package…
    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    please help me… thanks..

    • Tina Felipe Apr 9, 9:04 pm

      Hi, the reason why the stylesheet is missing is because you must have Genesis Framework installed otherwise the AyoShop theme won’t work. Genesis Framework is not free so you must buy it.

      • Chandra Achberger Jul 29, 7:46 am

        I have Genesis installed and am having the same problem as Shiddiq. “missisng CSS sheet

  20. Adrian Apr 11, 9:03 am

    AyoShop Theme was updated! Please download fresh version now.

    • Hadi Farnoud Apr 11, 3:16 pm

      thanks. I still have problem with Slider. I don’t have any widget here (Appeareance → Widgets → Homepage Slider). in fact, I don’t have Homepage Slider at all.

      can you help?

      • AyoThemes Apr 11, 3:20 pm

        Slider will be handled by Aqua Page Builder plugin starting from version 1.2
        New online documentation will be available soon.


        • Michael Jun 12, 7:29 am

          Hope this Aqua Page Builder 1.2 available soon :)

        • Courtney Sep 2, 9:42 pm

          Getting an error when I try to upload it says: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
          Theme install failed.

          I have genesis installed any idea on what’s going on?

  21. Andrew Apr 19, 10:09 pm

    I paid someone to edit the theme…now I can’t do the genesis/woo or Theme updates without causing an issue and losing my customizations. Hmmm :(

    If you make the changes I had someone do to this theme to clean it up, I’d be able to update it :)

    What I had done was clean up the look of the blog style area (removed the author, date, tags etc… much cleaner and friendlier looking)

    You can see here:

    Now it just has Title/Photo/Description with [read more] and separation bars. Nice eh?

    Perhaps you’ll look into changing this for an update :)

    LOVE AYOSHOP and don’t want to use anything else!

  22. grant Apr 23, 2:31 am

    Hi, everything seems to be working, although 2 things may need changes. For the header, the width and height values are been switched (height = width value, width = height value). Also, the header does not seem to be working in ie9. It is not resizing it correctly when I enter the logo at a larger size (700 x 300) and resize it to half as suggested (350 x 300). It just shows the 700 x 300 version cropped.

  23. Hectic May 1, 3:08 pm

    Great looking theme but where do we get it from? – there is no links to download it anywhere………

  24. avil May 3, 2:29 pm

    Will I lose changes if I update Ayoshop 1.1 to 1.2.2?

    • AyoThemes May 5, 7:51 pm

      Apparently yes, we still looking a solution about this issue. Because there is no grand child theme.

  25. Guy Pomerleau May 4, 10:15 pm

    The slider doesn’t work! All I see is the loading rectangles. Any help?

    • AyoThemes May 5, 7:40 pm

      Try to deactive all plugins except all recommended plugin that already listed at Appearance > Install Plugins.

      • Guy Pomerleau May 5, 7:53 pm

        I didn’t fix it.. my co worker decided to get Layer Slider.

  26. Rohith May 5, 3:31 pm


    i am getting this error :

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function genesis_superfish_enabled() in C:\xampp\htdocs\word\wp-content\themes\ayoshop\lib\assets\theme-scripts.php on line 34″

    what is the solution for this……

  27. Fajar May 11, 9:06 pm

    Awesome genesis ecommerce child theme. I like this :)

    • AyoThemes Jun 27, 9:28 pm

      I dont have any problem at the demo site, so I have no idea whats the problem.

    Hi Love your work,however i am having a small problem i couldn’t find a way to edit html in this theme i wanted to add new div sections.The theme doesn’t have any header.php and footer.php files.Please help

    • Linh Jun 25, 6:33 pm

      it’s child theme only, you need genesis framework to make it works.

  35. Navdeep Jun 25, 6:36 pm

    Yes the child theme is already setup and i have made most of css edits but i can’t find a way to add new source code.Like i want to add email address and phone no. to the far right of the logo.

  36. Marco Jun 25, 6:39 pm

    You can use a widget in “Header Right”

    • Navdeep Jun 25, 6:44 pm

      Thanks Marco, This will work.I have another problem in footer copyright section.In theme-styles.php, how can i edit the color for footer. I want the color in footer different from the default one that is setup in theme-styles.php

    I am using Ayoshop v 1.2.2 + Genesis + Woocommerce to build my clint’s site.I have a logo with text which is displayed very small at the top.How can I increase the size of the logo.Is there a way to upload a header?Please help.

    Thanks and Regards,

    • AyoThemes Jul 12, 5:37 pm

      Apparently, in this current version, there is no option to display logo and text at once. So, must use firebug/chrome developer tool to tweaks some css.

  40. Reem Jul 26, 9:45 am

    I very new at wordpress, so hopefully there is a simple solution for this. I am following the documentation to create a homepage like the one in the demo, but when I look for the homepage slider template under page attributes, it’s not there. Is this something I’m supposed to make myself or is it a provided template and I didn’t get it?

    • AyoThemes Jul 29, 3:27 pm

      Hi Reem, can you make a screenshot and sent it to ayothemes[at]gmail[dot]com


  41. Andrea Jul 30, 5:47 pm

    Hello Ayo,

    I have been working on this child theme for hours with no luck. I installed Ayoshop child theme through the FTP and began working an hour later the aqua page builder is not functional. I deleted everything started over and about an hour later the page builder goes is frozen again. Please assist with this.

    Thank You

  42. Robert Aug 13, 1:59 am

    Hi, I can’t get my logo to display with this theme. I am using AyoShop 1.2.2 on WordPress 3.6. I have tried uploading the logo in “AyoShop settings” to no avail. I have also tried to point to the URL of where my logo resides. Nothing happens with either command after choosing insert into post. The image is the same size as the settings size. Settings is the only place I can see where the logo would be activated.

    There is no header option in the theme’s customization section. Please let me know how to get the logo to show up in place of the title and tagline.

    Maybe there is some code I need to put into the theme’s file?

    Please let me know.



  43. AyoThemes Aug 13, 4:23 am

    @Andrea, @Robert and anyone who had similar issues.
    We are on the way to update the theme and fix compatibility issue with WordPress 3.6 and Genesis 2.0


    AyoThemes team

    • Robert Aug 13, 4:46 am

      Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply. I really like this theme and will sit tight till the upgrade. I figured it had something to do with the wordpress upgrade.

      One other thing I noticed that you are probably aware of…Genesis did away with the fancy drop down menu in Genesis 2.0. I found out after I upgraded to Genesis 2.0 and lost the nice drop down menu in your theme that was at the top of my website. I thought I could use the fancy drop-down plugin to active it again, but the plug-in didn’t work so I reverted back to 1.9.

      Will the fancy drop down menu work with Ayo after it’s update with Genesis 2.0?

      On my other websites, the fancy dropdowns just work with Genesis 2.0 without the need of the plug-in leading me to believe an AYO update might fix the issue.

      Thanks again.


    • Ben Aug 16, 9:41 pm

      Any idea as to when the update will be pushed out? Very much so looking forward to it.


    • sam Sep 2, 10:23 am

      Great! Please hurry :)

      Any news on when the update will be released?

      I have serious header and menu issues and I don’t know how to fix them. I’m really hoping the update will sort it out.


  44. Chris Aug 13, 4:41 am

    Sup team.

    We got quite buggy header and footer issues with the update to 3.6 and 2.0.

    Adding in the html5 support as well turned the whole website responsive.

    Looking forward to the update. Thanks again AyoTeam :)

      I installed Ayoshop and found out that my menu shows as list. What could be the problem?

  49. Danny Armand Sep 14, 1:41 am


    Please update download link for an updated Ayoshop version 1.3. Thank you

  50. Adrian Sep 16, 6:54 pm

    AyoShop was updated! New Genesis Framework and WordPress 3.6 support, please re-download the pack.

  51. Ben Sep 24, 2:47 am

    In the newest update to your ayoshop theme, div tags no longer work in the text blocks…. Is there a new block to use with div?

    I feel like this is a bug, as div should work (and did perfectly in the last build).

    Please provide an update asap.

    • Ben Sep 25, 1:00 am

      I do not have an Action block I can use… Which is weird because I had them as an option in the last build.

      • AyoThemes Sep 25, 2:02 am

        Action block replaced by Callout block.



        • Ben Sep 25, 2:36 am

          div tags still don’t seem to be working within the text blocks even when wrapped with container blocks…

  52. AyoThemes Sep 25, 2:56 am

    Ok, sorry. I was misunderstood with what you mean.
    Thanks for notice that.
    For now, please edit text-block.php at ayoshop/lib/blocks/text-block.php.
    Replace with this one:

    Going to update the theme, shortly.



  53. bill Oct 9, 9:36 pm

    I am using Genesis 2.0 and wordpress 3.6, my problem is that the content appears to be stretched from left to right. Like there is no margin or padding on the sides. I tried to correct it but couldn’t do it. Please help me, its driving me insane…

  54. hannet Oct 11, 6:21 pm

    Beside, I think that Drupal Themes is also suitable for Ecommerce. It is a free content management framework, which is currently used as a back-end system for at least 2.1 per cent of all websites in the world.

  55. Mackenzie Oct 11, 8:00 pm

    Beautiful job! Will this home page slider allow for a video?

    • AyoThemes Oct 13, 7:17 am

      Not possible if using AyoShop built-in slider. Probably on the later version.

  56. Ronald Oct 14, 9:10 pm

    Amazing WordPress Theme. Thanks for sharing, Adrian.

  57. Joshua Nov 8, 9:23 pm

    Hi, when I install the AyoShop theme my content isn’t aligned to the middle of the page, but your demo theme shows all the content in the middle. How do I fix this? Please see screenshots for more:

  58. Sally Nov 13, 11:19 pm

    I have installed genesis and ayoshop, including all of the recommended plugins, and have things generally working. Here is the problem:
    When I use a text block in page builder, there are no icons available in the drop down list. Also, the block is not bordered in any way or organized on the page, the way it is shown in the documentation video. The icons that come with the theme are present when I am creating a post, just not in the pagebuilder text blocks. Help?

  59. Devin Price Dec 5, 9:28 am

    This theme has a couple issues with the latest version of the Options Framework Plugin. I posted a fix here:

    Hi everyone,

    The theme is kinda outdate. We will do our best to update the themes this month.
    If you have problem with options framework plugin, please refer to Devin answers

    Just downloaded the theme, but it’s missing the stylesheet and cannot be installed. Help please.

    • josemv Jan 20, 9:55 pm

      Remember, you need Genesis framework with Genesis Woocommerce Connect installed and running in order to use this theme

      • Mandy Jan 20, 10:58 pm

        Um. I own Genesis and did install it. However, the AyoShop stylesheet is missing, causing the theme to be unusable.

        I moved on to a better theme. Thanks anyway.

    Don’t get it, I downloaded provided file but css says it is 1.1 version of the theme. How can I access latest updated version ?

    • Sushi Feb 21, 7:03 pm

      Hi same question as josemv, downloaded file but it is not the latest version.

      I have been reinstalling older versions of certain updates to get the product pages to work correctly but keep finding new issues, also this isn’t good practice. I really enjoy this theme and also just shelled out the $60 for the genesis frame work, because ayo came so highly rated. Would really appreciate some help, I can’t seem to find much info on this, please give us latest version!

    This theme is very well announced and is quite promising in the combination of WP + Genesis + WooCommerce. But unfortunately I see here a lot of issues and only little solutions.

    I’ve used it now on a pre-version of a commercial e-shop with WP 3.8.1 + Genesis 2.0.2 and WooComm 2.1.2 and I’m still suffering from the same issues as already mentioned here above by others.

    The theme screenshot indicates v1.1 while there seems to be a version 1.2.2. However my download is from a few days ago (and the file date is 08-jan-2014) it still seems to be the old version (I cannot find a way to verify if I have the latest version). Where do we get the new version with the promised fixes ??

    Although it is a free theme (and thus not an ideal starting point to get support) a little extra help from the developers would be appreciated to rate this as a trustworthy source for this kind of themes. Especially if you want people to buy Genesis first (approx USD 60) in order to be able to use this theme.

    The developers did a great job so far, so it would be a petty if they would miss the next jump now. Looking forward to you contributions.

    I am having a problem where the add to cart button is covering the price and title in the featured section and recently added.

  67. greg brophy Mar 4, 5:51 am

    I have notice that when I go to customize theme everything looks good. Click on additional settings and responsive layout is checked. If I uncheck this, the site changes and it looks like how I see it in my browser. Checking it again fixes the problem. So all I can think of is that the theme is not seeing the responsive-styles.css

    When I go to my themes page, I see this at the bottom:

    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    Startup Design Framework Stylesheet is missing.

    Before you ask, Yes I installed the Genesis frameowrk. I had to upload AyoShop manually through FTP just to get it to work originally.

  68. lees Mar 6, 2:09 am

    This question is everywhere, but i can’t see one answer that guides through this issue. downloaded the theme. it’s missing the stylesheet and cannot be installed. I have Genesis and I tried both through WordPress and FTP. Not sure if I am placing the theme in the wrong directory. Anyone can please guide through this. Thanks so much

    • Jay Mar 13, 3:43 am

      Lees, from what I understand, you want to unzip the theme and manually place it into your themes folder via FTP or the cpanel on your host site. It’s stop asking for the stylesheet then. Try that… hope it helps.

  69. Paulina Mar 12, 6:37 pm

    Hi! I downloaded the theme and wanted to move the secondary menu navigation to the right. Anyone knows how to do it?

    • Jay Mar 13, 3:46 am

      Paulina, on your admin page > under the Genesis tab, click the Theme Settings link. You can then choose your layout under the DEFAULT LAYOUT pane.

    Attention! If you get the message:

    “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

    – then you are trying to upload the .zip file directly as a WordPress Theme. However, the .zip file actually contains some extras, such as PSDs, so the Theme folder is within another folder within the zip file.

    – What to do: unzip the .zip file on your local computer. Go into /ayoshop-wp-theme/ and you’ll see another folder, /ayoshop/ . That’s the one you want to upload to your /wp-content/themes/ folder, using FTP or scp etc, (and maybe check permissions/owner etc.)

    – If you don’t like using FTP, you can also re-zip just the /ayoshop/ folder (right-click, Add to Zip or something similar) into, let’s call it Now you can go to WordPress Dashboard and upload that new .zip file as normal.

    Would like to see this but installation failed “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” Hope you can help :-)

  74. Monu May 3, 6:11 pm

    Help Please Anyone. I am getting an error message my-orders.php version 1.6.4 is out of date. Please has anyone else had this and what is the fix please

  75. fabio May 15, 10:33 am

    hi man
    when I install this theme on wordpress the upload is successful because it does not have the CSS file. Why? thanks

  76. Julian May 15, 11:11 am


    If you are waiting for support you might be here for a long time.

    Not sure I understand – if you have uploaded the theme to wordpress and all is working what problem are you facing? Are you missing the AyoShop stylesheet CSS file?

    Thanks Ott for letting us know…

    • Ott May 15, 9:12 pm

      Happy to help :)
      I stole this from Cormac Bracken a little higher up, but info is info!

  78. Julian May 16, 12:14 pm

    Hi All,

    Can anyone help with this AyoShop Woocommerce my-orders.php file being out o date and if this causes any problems.

    I realise that this is a free theme but it would be great if we got some support also.


  79. Shumaila Imran May 20, 9:05 am

    The download link is still pointing to version 1.1. Can you please update the package to point to 1.3 ? The screen shot present in the download package says it’s version 1.1.

  80. julian May 20, 1:30 pm

    Seems to be little help from the Ayoshop team.

    Will updating to 1.3 solve the my-orders.php file being out of date?????

    How do we get the update???

    • Marco Ghislanzoni Oct 21, 3:32 pm

      The WooCommerce plugin gives you an hint about how to solve this inside its System Status.

      In short, you need to copy the updated version of my-orders.php from the Woocommerce plugin folder to the Ayoshop theme folder.

      Source: \wp-content\plugins\woocommerce\templates\myaccount\my-orders.php
      Destination: \wp-content\themes\ayoshop\woocommerce\myaccount\my-orders.php

      You can overwrite the destination file (better first to rename it so you can always roll-back if needed).

      Hope this helps.

  81. Shane May 26, 6:59 am

    I don’t understand the confusion. It says its a free child theme. Child means it works off a framework or other parent theme. Never does it say the parent theme is free. People need to read full title/description before declaring something is “deceptive”. It’s free. It’s parent is not free, so what, it’s still free. If you’re not aware what a child theme is then that’s not Ayo’s fault.

    They do however have a poorly structured zip file. For all those wondering why they get an error its because the download file is NOT the theme. The theme is actually inside that zip file in a subfolder. The zip file is not a WordPress theme file.

  82. Samantha R. Jul 1, 2:57 am

    I have Genesis installed and now want to install this free theme: Ayo Shop. It never will fully upload. Gets to 7% and stalls out. This must be a problem with this particular theme because other themes upload in just a few seconds. Anyone have any suggestions or tips? I am trying to upload the zipfile as I do with all other themes/child themes.


    • Samantha R. Jul 2, 2:16 am

      Never mind… figured it out. Also, where is the list of plugins recommended for this theme? I want it to look quite similiar to the demo if possible.
