After searching and trying for days, I'm starting to get agitated..

I have a custom theme for Wordpress, wich seems to function OK. But after installing Woocommerce several widget don't work, such as the shopping cart and lightbox.

I found out that it has something to do with my theme not being compatible with Woocommerce because when I change to a standard theme everything works as expected.

On Woocommerce docs I saw I might have to add some hooks to my functions.php but I can't figure out where to add these hooks...

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It seems like Woothemes purposely provides bad documentation. I found quite a lot of people having similar problems.... – MartijnICU Oct 16 '13 at 11:49

Open your FTP browser and go to your WordPress root folder. Find wp-content/themes/ folder, there should be your theme folder and functions.php file inside of it. Open functions.php file in a text editor application. Add suggested hooks at the bottom of your functions.php file and save it.
