    The theme is awesome, but there is a small issue that I am unable to
    figure out. The issue is that product image is not showing up. Is there
    any size or dimension limit on the image. I am using 125×125 px image.
    The slider is also not showing any image. Any help is appreciated in
    this regard.

    Hello, wonderful theme!

    I’m trying to add shopping cart to this theme. Decided to use Cart66 (lite) – th same that is used in your Zenshop theme. My problem is, that theme has Products, and cart has it’s own products. Could you give a hint on how to use same Product table for both Viper theme and Cart66 products? Thanks in advance!
