If you are using the latest WordPress version (which you should!!!), you’ll notice that eShop plugin will be perpetually set to Test Mode and there’s no way to turn it off. There’s quite a number of suggestions in the official forum at quirm.net but as it turns out, the option is inadvertently hidden. All you have to do is to activate the two column mode of the dashboard and you’ll be able to see the dropdown option.

To be clear, here’s the screenshot on how to do it.
Step 1 : click on 2 in the Number of Columns Screen options.

Step 2 : Update the status to Live and click on Save.

For those looking for it, I know how you feel. I just felt too stupid to not thinking about it. Admittedly, it’s probably one of the many plugins affected by the latest WordPress enhancements. I bet once rich updated the plugin to conform with the new standard, then it won’t be a problem anymore.

    Still giving me hassles even after changing it to 2 – some of the columns appear in the other setting area’s like merchant & sales tax, but still not for the general settings – still can’t activate. It simply gives me a dotted line column with no info in on the RHS. Any further suggestions – my screen resolutions appear fine as well…

  6. I follow what you said,but at second step I did not find the picture you show,did not find the status,what is the problem?

    I can’t seem to find that those areas you mentioned and I have the latest versions of both wordpress and eshop installed. Is there any other way to change the number of columns? Maybe in the code somewhere?

    I would really appreciate any help and one has on this. Thanks in advance guys!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
