    I’m working on making Volatyl compatible with WooCommerce. The Woocommerce templates take over Volatyl.
    According to these directions, I should be able to just pick the right div and be off.

    But it’s not working.

    remove_action( 'woocommerce_before_main_content', 'woocommerce_output_content_wrapper', 10);
    remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_main_content', 'woocommerce_output_content_wrapper_end', 10);
    add_action('woocommerce_before_main_content', 'my_theme_wrapper_start', 10);
    add_action('woocommerce_after_main_content', 'my_theme_wrapper_end', 10);
    function my_theme_wrapper_start() {
      echo '<div id="main-content">';
    function my_theme_wrapper_end() {
      echo '</div>';

    This is what I put. Nothing changes.
    Did I select the wrong div? (I tried a few and nothing happened.) Is something else going on?

    (I did not include links to the site as it redirects unless you’re logged in, and I thought this was generic enough–I can make a temporary account if you need to see the site.)

    Hi there. This is actually going to be a lot more involved than with a regular standalone WordPress theme. Frameworks are written in a manner where multiple components are created that come together to make a layout. That way those components can be rearranged in many different variations, making frameworks the flexible foundations that they are. The down side to that is creating static templates is a little more difficult because you have to manually track all of those components down and stick them in one file… and that’s what’s going on here.

    I haven’t used WooCommerce before so I’m not familiar with the integration. I’ve only written another version of Volatyl to work with Easy Digital Downloads. I can take a look at the instructions and see what it’s going to take, though.

    Aw darn. I was hoping this was just a small matter of personal incompetence. 🙂

    Thanks for the clear explanation. If it’s not something you would normally support, then I’ll just have to use a theme that’s already compatible and transfer what I’ve done so far. My fault for not working it through first. Oh well.
