  5. I've been playing with woocommerce again over the past few days My original test site - https://www.podline.co.uk/ was based on my version of the default twentyfourteen but I thought I would see how it worked using twentyseventeen as the starting point.

After a bit of playing around I've now got it set up so it runs of less than half a dozen files and I can set a new site up for any category in minutes and either use the data from one central database or quickly create, and...
