Ecommerce V.06 b1
Payment 0.1 b1
SS V 2.3.7

Above is what im using and its a clean install,

When i install both of the Modules everything goes fine with no problems, I can see the example product in blackcandy theme, when i switch to my own theme its blank (which is what i expect),

i have looked through blackcandy files to see what is calling the information but im at a loss to find out what the includes are or where they are..

I have searched for what i would consider an easy tutorial, but can only find the ecommerce docs in silverstripe docs, anybody know of a tutorial or heads up that can set me on my way?,.. Thanks

Ecommerce Includes are under /ecommerce/templates or you can overloading class into your theme.

I've just twigged that this is the same issue I'm having in my latest post.

I'm using the iTheme, but when I switch back to Blackcandy, it works fine.

I can see an itheme_ecommerce directory, but copying the template files from the ecommerce module into that doesn't do anything.
Removing that directory, it's obviously formatting the page with the backcandy default layout, but over the itheme template, and it breaks badly.

Am I going to have to manully hack thru the code in the default ecommerce template and the itheme_ecommerce content to find the product display stuff or is there a simpler way?
