I am familar with other frameworks on how to set up custom page layouts for stadard pages like posts, ategories, archive and product etc... But I don't seem to get how to in dottoro ? I know I'm simply missing it somewhere but I installed woo commerce and I inserted the code you provided to make it woo freindly!!! - awesome!!!

But now I need to create some page templates to finalize design... I guess what I'm asking is how to set up default dynamic page templates ....

Also, do you have any extra cool ways i could use your themes prebuilt pages to display and make customers experience awesome - Basically I'm think about each client that orders from me will be reordering and i undersyand woo can handle this but would be nice if I could create a dynamic page that displayed clients previous orders like a portfolio page and to have product page function with the ajax and javascript classes you have for portfolio...

any tips or cool ideas would help!

Also - How do i get rid of the [raw] [raw/] that is on every woo commerce page in theme... - nato -

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. - Dottoro -
The main advantage of the matching page system is that category pages can look different. For instance, create two blog categories (cat1, cat2) and some Blog posts in cat1 and cat2. Now create two Blog pages (Blog1, Blog2), and choose the "Selected categories are allowed" option under category settings, then select the cat1 category on Blog1 and the cat2 category on Blog2. And for instance, set the "Number of posts in a row" option to 1 on Blog1 and 2 on Blog2. Save changes. If you take a look at the cat1 and cat2 category pages, you will see that the posts are displayed in a one column layout on cat1 and a two column layout on cat2. - Dottoro -

Customization of single post and post list pages:

Post templates allow you to customize the look of posts both on single and list pages. There are predefined post templates to choose from and you can create custom ones.
With the help of post templates, you can arrange post datas in various ways.
For example, you can have the date above the title, the title below the thumbnail and so on.
You have also the possibility to display custom content. For instance, you can put a custom image, button, link or - with the help of the [widget_area] shortcode - widgets above the post title or below the post thumbnail or anywhere you want.
For further details, please see Post Templates in the documentation.

Category, tag and date pages:

Post list pages (Blog, News and Portfolio) support category filtering in the Dottoro theme (see Blog Categories).

Category filtering allows you to create multiple post list pages displaying posts from different categories.
The appearance of a category page is based on the settings of the post list page that matches the category.
If more than one post list page matches a category, the page with the highest priority will be used (see Page Priority).

The appearance of tag and date pages is based on the settings of the post list page with the highest priority (regardless of categories).

So, for example, if only one Blog page exists on your website, this page determines the look of all (blog) category, tag and date pages.
If there are two Blog pages on your site (Blog1 and Blog2, and Blog2 has the higher priority), Blog2 determines the look of tag and date pages.
The look of a category page is determined by Blog2 if Blog2 matches the category, otherwise it is determined by Blog1.

Ajax and Javascript class for WooCommerce product pages:

This is up to woo. The content of product pages (the list of products and the pagination) are displayed by woo, the theme has no control over it.
Unfortunately, I don't think that woo supports ajax pagination, thumbnail overlays, category browsing filters, rendering order and the other options for product pages as the theme does for portfolio pages.
The only solution I can imagine is integrate woo products into an exisitng post type.
The Dottoro theme will allow you to create custom post types and the same options will be available for custom post types as for the portfolio post type (we plan to release this version in April).
The post templates feature mentioned above allow you to totally customize the look of posts. For instance, if you add some custom fields (e.g. price, size, etc.) to the posts in your custom post type, you can display them on single and lists pages as well.
Just add some do_action shortcodes to your post templates that display the custom fields, and you are done.

I hope that helps.
