    I have the 20 somethings with no experience beating me up in the marketplace because of their blogging skills and google rankings, so I got on board this week.

    Anyway just wanted to say this "Photocrati" Wordpress template was pretty slick in setting up and e-commerce site with little trouble.
    These photos I have made of our local university seem to me a minor gold-mine I have been sitting on but doing little to nothing about selling.

    Cheers all.

    Great job. I am in the process of using photocrati myself and am wondering which attachment you are using for e-commerce?
    Thanks

    I had the template for more than a year. Finally got it in gear.

    @FM2N I am using the Photocrati e-commerce plug/template. I like that I can assign specific sizes for specific prints... square, panoramic, etc. Still can't make people understand that a 5x7 is that much different than a 8x10. Some things work on both ratios some don't.

    I interfaced the e-commerce with pay-pal. People seem to trust Pay Pal fee are kinda high, but then again not getting a sale is higher cost yet.
