Jetbird Theme for Jigoshop:

The Jetbird theme is an attractive, adaptive and versatile theme with unlimited colour options and custom backgrounds to let you set up a unique Jigoshop store in minutes. Easy Admin and Slider options mean set-up is quick and simple, but you can still stand out.


Sport and Grunge Theme for Jigoshop:

If your business is about getting down and dirty, the Sport and Grunge theme is perfect for extreme sports or music stores. Whether you’re a skateboarder or surf shop, selling boards, decks or videos for digital download, your customers will feel at home with this theme.



Storefront Echo theme for Jigoshop:

Rounding out our trio of new themes to start the week is the Storefront Echo theme which is not only designed to work with Jigoshop, but also allows you to utilise the social features of BBPress forums and BuddyPress social tools to integrate community with your shop. The responsive design also works with the BuddyPress pages as well as those integral to Jigoshop, meaning that your customers can join in via whatever device they use to connect to the internet.



More themes on the way:

We’ve got even more themes to be added to the catalogue shortly, developed both in-house and by the growing Jigoshop design community, with more and more people earning a living by producing themes and plugins. If you’re releasing a Jigoshop-compatible theme or plugin, get in touch and we’ll help with promotion – you can also benefit by signing up for our Affiliate program.

Please note all three themes above are provided by the Jigoshop community, and are sold via Themeforest, so theme-specific support is handled by the theme designers (We’ll pass on any feedback/support issues we receive).

Sommerce – an amazingly customisable Jigoshop theme, that’s easy to use

Posted in Blog, Third Party Themes and tagged , , , , , on by .

Sommerce is a great new customisable Jigoshop theme which provides a range of easy options to get your shop looking the way you want.

It’s the work of Mascara Designs, the business of talented Italian designer Sara Presenti, and fortunately for us, she’s also provided plenty of documentation in English. And that’s helpful because there are a wealth of options available, including the choice of a stretched or boxed layout. As a third party theme, it’s currently available to purchase via here.

When it comes to backgrounds, you can choose unlimited colours, or from a selection of 50 custom backgrounds. And unlimited colours also applies to the header, along with 10 custom selections.

Want a nice slider to show off your creations – you get a choice of six, including rotating, with thumbnails and other options. And tooltips can show the details of your products featured in slider images – which is a great and extremely professional looking addition.

Navigation can be tabbed or minimal, and there are various styles available for your product images, with options for borders, shadows and different styles. There are a huge number of fonts, options for footer widgets, and so much more it’s hard to cram it all in.
