Begi WordPress e-Commerce Theme

Begi WordPress e-commerce theme
We're very pleased to announce the immediate availability of our newest theme. Begi is a clean, minimal and highly customizable WordPress e-commerce theme. It is based on Vanilla Cart whose development ceased a while ago.

Theme Features

  • Clean, minimal and stylish
  • Drop-down menu support
  • 2-column layout and widget-ready sidebar
  • Support for WordPress 3.0 custom menus
  • Support for custom backgrounds
  • Styled to work elegantly with DukaPress

Begi is not a child theme and is instead a fully fledged theme so all you need to get it up and running is to install it, install DukaPress, and start selling! As usual, we encourage you to “look under the hood” to see just how easy it is to create DukaPress themes. Pay particular attention to functions.php and style.css.

Here is a link to the live demo: Begi Live Demo

The shipping/delivery module on the live demo is powered by our Shipping Pro DukaPress Addon. Shipping Pro enables you to offer delivery services to custom locations, but it is not limited to custom locations, you can offer custom shipping packages like so:

DukaPress Shipping Pro

Shipping Pro is like the Swiss Army knife of Shipping

Please enjoy this theme.

In case you are wondering, “Begi” means “Bag” in Swahili.

This theme was updated on 16 Feb 2011.

  1. Is there away to see the control panel?

  2. Hi Kevin,

    I really love your plugin! and this theme is a great addition. I’m no programmer but I’d just wanna to know if it is possible to add a multicolor tabs for your Begi theme. I’d love to see different tabs with different colors. How do I come around to achive it? Thank you very much!

    • Hi, thanks. What do you mean by tabs?

      • Kelvin,

        I mean the page pn the top such as home, about, checkout and order log about. Aren’t they called tabs in wordpress? It would be nice to have different colors for each of them.

        • Hey. Sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately for this particular theme, you’d need to almost totally re-write the CSS for the navigation menu to achieve that :(. But we might try include it in a future release of the theme.

  3. HI Kelvin, is possible to add option for copying products because some products sometime have the same price and categories and it’s a hassle to key in one by one esp the one with similar attributes such as price and variation. I would suggest option for copying products and their attributes but not the picture…If that can be done, it would be great!

    • Thank you for this suggestion – it makes a lot of sense. We generally need a way to handle bulk products. We’re going to look into developing this 🙂

  4. This is looking very nice!
    I’m using Vanilla cart together with WP e-commerce right now.
    When I would switch to the Begi theme; will the look change dramatically compared to what I have now.
    Will it take a lot of work to come close to what I have?

    Thanks very much,
    Regards, Robert

    • Hi there. Well the only thing that you’d need to do afresh is the work you did to make your Vanilla cart look so good!! 🙂

      We haven’t actually changed the theme much – just added CSS to show the DukaPress stuff.

  5. Hi Kevin,
    Can you add price of item on grid display.
