Styling Easy Digital Downloads with GeneratePress

GeneratePress and Easy Digital Downloads

It’s no secret that I am in love with GeneratePress. Coming from a page builder world, I have come to terms with Gutenberg and have embraced it. So far, I have completed three pure Gutenberg designs with GeneratePress.

While researching GeneratePress and Easy Digital Downloads, I found that GeneratePress does not really have any styles for Easy Digital Downloads.

Simply put, GeneratePress is concentrating on WooCommerce because it has way more installs than Easy Digital Downloads, as you can see below. At the time of this writing, WooCommerce has over 5 million installs whereas Easy Digital Downloads has 60,000+.

Styling Conundrum

I love both GeneratePress and Easy Digital Downloads, so I prepared for the worst. And I DID NOT want to switch to WooCommerce. I’ve heavily invested in the EDD All Access Pass, and have EDD set up exactly the way I want it.

Here is the way Easy Digital Downloads looked without any GeneratePress styles for it.

This was even with Easy Digital Downloads styles applied. To say it looked ugly is an understatement.

Styling EDD is a chore, but I have some base SASS that you are welcome to modify. I believe I have covered all the bases:

  • Checkout Form
  • Login Form
  • Licences Page
  • History Page
  • Update Payment Form

Here’s what my checkout screen now looks like with the applied styles with GeneratePress:

You’ll of course want to disable EDD styles to prevent style conflicts.

First, you’ll want to enable the SCSS processor in the Appearance customizer for Additional CSS.

And finally, here’s the SASS in all its glory. It’s not perfect, but it should give you a good starting point.
