This theme requires the Woocommerce Plugin.
It's a free plugin you can download from: http://www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/
Once you have installed the Woocommerce Plugin, a message will show up asking if you want to install the Woocommerce Pages.
We want to install those pages because they contain the layouts for our shop, cart, etc.
To create your Home Page, go to PAGES > ADD NEW.
Once you have created your Home Page, go to the right sidebar and under "template" choose HOME PAGE.
Some new options will show up:
To create your Blog Page, go to PAGES > ADD NEW. Only if you need a Blog.
Once you have created your Blog Page
Before you continue you will need to go to Step 4 and follow the directions for Structure. Then you can come back here :-)
Some new options will show up: (Only if you have set your Blog Page as "Posts Page" as it's shown in Step 4 - Structure.
When you create a post you can add videos using the Video Field, you onlye need the URL from VIMEO or YOUTUBE, not embed code needed.
Once you have created your pages, you need to tell to the Theme what pages you are using for structure.

When you create Pages and Posts different options will show up. Basically the main difference is:
Pages and Posts share the main functionalities.
The footer is managed by widgets, feel free to use our widgets (Social Networks and Credits) or the widgets by default.
Our theme works with custom menus.
In your Dashboard, on the left sidebar go to APPEARANCE > MENUS.
Create your menu, add all the pages and links you want. Be sure you have checked the option "Primary Menu" to make it appear at the top.
The theme allows to create a secondary menu (maybe you don't needed it). The secondary menus doesn't appear anywhere by default, you can add it to the footer in a widget. In our DEMO, we used the same MENU at the top and in the footer. Use the secondary menu only if you want to have two different menus.
That's it.Simple Shop is really basic to edit and customize. Hope you have fun and enjoy our theme!
