Do It Yourself – Website Tutorials
In this step-by-step tutorial, I walk you through how to set up an online store with WordPress. I am using a great theme called Mio from splashingpixels.com. The theme itself resembles the look of Apple’s website but you can customize the background/font/text color/etc…The Mio theme is also designed specifically for the eCommerce plugin we will be using called WooCommerce from woothemes.com Both the theme and the plugin are absolutely free.
