Deli – Storefront Child Theme

A WordPress child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes allow you to modify, or add to the functionality of that parent theme. — WordPress Codex: Child Themes

Deli is a child theme for Storefront, the official WooCommerce theme. It features a texturised, tactile design, perfect for natural goods. It has an informal, natural and friendly aesthetic making it a good choice for stores selling handmade products as well.

To help set up your theme follow the documentation below and be sure to reference the Storefront theme documentation if you are not familiar with the main features/setup of Storefront.

You can read more documentation on WordPress child themes in the WordPress Codex.

Installation ↑ Back to top

As Deli is a Storefront child theme, you will first need to install and set up Storefront itself. You can read all about installing that over on our Installing & Configuring Storefront documentation.

Installing Deli follows the same process as installing Storefront. The only difference is that you search for “Deli” in the WordPress dashboard. Installing manually is done in exactly the same way, by uploading the Deli directory to your wp-content/themes directory.

Once uploaded / installed you can activate Deli by navigating to Appearance > Themes.

Please note: Deli is a Storefront Child Theme, meaning that the majority of Storefront Documentation applies to this theme as well.

Remember that Deli is a child theme and requires Storefront to be installed.

The original uploaded images are at a size of 1,024px in width by 748px in height before being uploaded. The WooCommerce image settings above can be located at WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Display.

Remember, once you update any image dimensions in WooCommerce you’ll need to run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to regenerate all pre-existing thumbnails and re-crop them to the new sizes that you selected.

Note: For further information on the WooCommerce image sizes you can reference these two resources below.

Product Demo Content ↑ Back to top

To install some demo content for products as a starting point you can import the WooCommerce Dummy Data which will populate your site with demo products for you.

Note: We do not supply the exact images you see on our Deli demo within the WooCommerce Dummy Data as the sites images cannot be redistributed due to copyright restrictions and are for demo purposes only. The WooCommerce Dummy Data instead comes with our own unique unrestricted images that we can redistribute within product import data.
