I have a music website which uses this theme: [login to view URL]
It doesn't allow for selling digital music singles though. These music singles are instrumentals which I am calling 'beats'.
I want to add eCommerce functionality to a custom post type that already exists in the theme which is called Playlists (by the theme developer) but I am using them for 'beats'.
It want to do this ideally using Easy Digital Downloads since I already own a license for a lot of their addons. WooCommerce would be a backup alternative but it doesn't have a lot of plugins I would like to use so I would prefer not to use it.
I want to either do one or a combination of the two tasks below to make this work:
Customize the child theme of my website to edit the custom post type 'Playlists' in my existing website theme [login to view URL] which has a sticky music player which is already installed and working in my website WHEN you use this post type. And have it communicate with the Easy Digital Downloads plugin to add eCommerce functionality to the existing custom post type 'Playlists' pages.
And/or integrate the code from an old theme I own + have, [login to view URL] which customizes the Easy Digital Downloads plugin instead and makes it work with my Wordpress Elementor theme template for the podcasts post type. The MusicMakerTheme code added a customized the Easy Digital Downloads plugin to add a custom post/sale page like you can see here: [login to view URL] and info on it here [login to view URL]
The problem is, I don't want to change my website theme to that one because mine is better, I just want the eCommerce side of it working like that but with my existing theme.
Here is my Elementor Template I want to use, using either or a combination of the methods I discussed above to have a custom beat single page that looks like this but works with Easy Digital Downloads: [login to view URL]
You can also see the website music player on my beat single page working in action here: [login to view URL] by clicking the play icon on the top right hand corner.
At the moment, the post type 'called Podcast' you see on the Elementor theme template does not communicate any eCommerce information to Easy Digital Downloads. It also can't dynamically pull a lot of the information you see on the screen because those fields do not exist in the post yet so a lot of that information is static for now. However, the link above is how I want it to look.
The recommended beats thing you see on the page uses SliderRevolution to pull the custom post type and song information from all the playlist post types. As you can see it is working by pulling dynamic data from the playlist's custom post type but I would like the play button to turn into a pause button when a song is playing in the website's existing sticky player so the user can see which song is playing. I would also like a dynamic field that we can enter in the custom post type for similar beats.
So, the skillset required here is high. Unfortunately my budget is low due to the pandemic and financial issues with my company so I am hoping that I can find someone to help me to do this.
I had a developer look at this but he couldn't make Easy Digital Downloads work with the Podcasts post type in the theme so I am reposting the job. However, the last developer is open to discussing issues he came across with you or working to resolve issues you might run into if you guys would prefer to work together on the job.
