Getting started with Kadence’s WooCommerce Starter Templates

Getting started with Kadence WooCommerce starter templates is easy. If you haven’t set up WooCommerce yet, that’s okay. The Kadence Starter Site Template Plugin will import whatever is needed to get your starter template up and running, including WooCommerce. You’ll need to configure your WooCommerce configuration, but once that’s done, you’re ready to start customizing the entire experience for your customers. 

Here’s how.

Once you’ve installed Kadence Theme, navigate to Appearance > Kadence in your WordPress Admin dashboard.

From the Kadence menu, navigate to the Starter Templates tab.

If you’re totally new to Starter Templates, click the Activate Starter Templates button. We’ll handle installing the Kadence Starter Templates plugin.

You’ll see the library of Starter Templates now available on this page.

If you already have the Kadence Starter Templates plugin active, be sure to click the Refresh icon at the top of the Kadence > Starter Templates tab.

You can then select a Single Page or the Full Site (only recommended for fresh WordPress installs).

Please Note: Full site importing is intended for new/empty sites with no content. Your site customizer settings, widgets, menus will all be overridden when you import a full site Kadence Starter Template.

That’s it! All done. You now have your new WooCommerce Starter Template loaded onto your site. No matter your experience level with WordPress, Kadence Starter Templates make building a beautiful, engaging, and fast loading site simple. With a few clicks, you’re ready to customize, add your own course content, and launch a beautiful new site.

Kadence Templating Makes Customization Easy

If there’s a portion of a starter template that doesn’t suit your needs, or if you’d like to customize the look and feel even further, Kadence Elements Templating makes building your unique look and feel even easier than ever. You can customize numerous elements of your starter site template, including archive pages and more. Check out what Kadence Pro and Kadence Blocks Pro bring to your wp-admin with Kadence Elements Templating.

Add product galleries, product image zoom, cart notices, variation swatches, advanced reviews, and so much more.

  1. Is it possible to install these Starter Templates in a WIREFRAME mode? And would that be advisable or not? I’m trying to get some early encouragement on my build, and then build out completely

    1. Not at this time. You can very easily install a starter template and change the images, fonts, and customize the entire layout once it’s on your site. We do recommend installing starter templates on a fresh WordPress installation, not on a current live production site.
