SimpleCart(js) is a simple, attractive, and flexible WordPress theme that taps into the power of both Thematic and WP E-commerce. Features include AJAX cart functionality, a grid layout for products, and a flexible color scheme, easy to swap out images and completely customize the theme to your needs.
After putting this theme together for the WP E-commerce contest, I am happy to release the theme 100% free of charge. It is a port of the simpleCart(js) theme from the Wojo Group and was changed quite a bit due to its usage of Thematic and WP E-commerce, but I wanted to give credit to the creator, even if there are very few elements left from the original. One important note for this version, there is no link from the products on the homepage to the product info page, future versions will include one. Also, it should be fairly easy to add in there if you know what you’re doing.
