    Hi @Joe,

    Thank you for your reply.

    You will find Benefit/Advantages of Using a WordPress Child Theme on the following pages.

    FYI after using FrameMarket theme you have to use its child theme called gridmarket by moving it from the following path into themes folder and activating it.

    wp-content/themes/framemarket/themes/gridmarket/

    The Marketpress themes are such themes which integrates with Marketpress plugin by using its functions and template files so that you can customize marketpress pages/functionality however you want to.

    You can also develop your own theme that integrates with marketpress as following.

    MarketPress uses custom post types to display it's products. This means that you can use the same WP theme templating system you are familiar with. We simply provide a customized subset of template functions so you don't have to worry about dealing with post meta. Templatefunctions are fully documented and can be found in the /marketpress/marketpress-includes/template-functions.php file.

    E.g. to create a custom product page:

    1. Make a copy of the page.php template file in your theme directory and rename it mp_product.php

    2. mp_product.php must use the mp_* functions instead of the_content(), see template-functions.php for a list of functions relevant to products.

    MarketPress searches your current theme folder for template files specific to store pages. If a template file does not exist it loads the theme's page template instead. Just like WP, the plugin will search for templates in order of priority from top to bottom. Here are possible file names for store templates in order:

    Single Product Page
    mp_product-PRODUCTNAME.php
    mp_product-PRODUCTID.php
    mp_product.php

    Store Page
    mp_store.php

    Cart/Checkout Page
    mp_cart.php

    Order Status Page
    mp_orderstatus.php

    Product List Page
    mp_productlist.php

    Product Category List Page
    mp_category-CATEGORYSLUG.php
    mp_category-CATEGORYID.php
    mp_category.php
    mp_taxonomy.php
    mp_productlist.php

    Product Tag List Page
    mp_tag-TAGSLUG.php
    mp_tag-TAGID.php
    mp_tag.php
    mp_taxonomy.php
    mp_productlist.php
