Please note that this course has been replaced with the new “Sell Your Digital Products with WP eStore

In this video tutorial lesson we will learn how to control which widgets display on which pages.  We will also use the Advanced Recent Posts widget to create a complete product listing and a “related products” listing.

We will begin by adding three widgets to our pages. First we will embed a YouTube video. Next we will use the Advanced Recent Posts widget to create a product listing and a related products listing.  Next we will download, install and learn how to use the Display Widget Plugin.  Then we will look at the various options for our shopping cart widget.  Finally, we will clean up the appearance of our shopping cart widget using CSS.
