Hey dude, where is my CART?

You must create a new page with the [catablogcart] shortcode.

Where is the add to cart button?

This plugin use the %BUY-NOW-BUTTON% of the template, but the %BUY-NOW-BUTTON% only appears when item got a price, that is a limitation of Catablog plugin, there is no way to force the button to showup. A workaround of this is to put a 1 in price for each item you want a add to cart.

The process don’t redirect me to the CART page!

Check out the option of the plugin you must select what page to redirect to.

Where can i find you?

You can find me on facebook/diego2k
