Basic Theme/Template for MarketPress?

Is there a basic theme for quickly starting a Marketpress site? I realized there's still no docs and would really like some theme files to quickly create store pages.

    Hiya counteragent,

    We have plans to integrate our Product theme very tightly with the MarketPress plugin, but it's not completed yet.

    The plugin should use the styles of any theme to help create the store and the theme template files are well documented inside the actual php files themselves.

    For instance, take a look at the following files in your marketpress download:
    marketpress-includes/template-functions.php
    marketpress-includes/themes/Themeing_Marketpress.txt

    As well as the custom CSS files included in the themes directory of marketpress. These together should get you started quickly. And of course, we're working to get Product together for folks as fast as possible so you'll have even better examples.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I installed marketpress on multi-site. Brilliant job. My issue is that all of the pages that it generates are great except the "store" page. Am I doing something wrong? The store page has no formatting, it is just links. I posted here because if that is how the "store" page looks out of the box then I too am desperate for a basic get the thing up and running template. I just can't imagine though that the product pages look that great but the main page is like it is.

    Thanks for your help. Oh I'm using WP Multisite 3.03, no buddypress, with the latest marketpress.
