The problem I am facing right now is, that I can't use functions provided by wordpress plugins on my "Home" page.

To be precise: I use wordpress together with the wp-e-commerce plugin, which has no real documentation. I had a template with some js-written checkout script which I need to replace with wp-e-commerce.

The frontpage showed a featured product and some jcarousel to show other products. The only thing I'd need to change are the functions, f.e. the_title() -> wpsc_the_product_title().

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

Close-voted as too localized. This is a Plugin-specific support question, that should be directed to the Plugin developer. – Chip Bennett Feb 29 '12 at 15:44

wp e-commerce has a few shortcodes for displaying products, you may be able to use one of these:

display products set as "featured":


show a whole category:


the products are stored as a custom post type named "wpsc-product", so you could also just use all of the built in WordPress functions for querying and displaying posts, along with the wp e-commerce function for displaying the add to cart controls:

<?php echo wpsc_add_to_cart_button(1); ?>
