    Where can I change the setting for sidebar(s) on the vendor page? Right now it shows a sidebar, and I can’t really see where I can remove it.

    That would be part of your theme. For me, using a WooThemes theme, I click on the theme, click woocommerce settings and enable “Product details pages full width?” to yes. Every theme will be different of course, but that’ll give you a good starting point of where to find the setting. 🙂

    OK 🙂 And what if I want a different setting for the vendor page? The shop page have a sidebar, but the vendor page should not. The single product page does not have a sidebar either.

    It is 100% up to your theme on which page template it calls for the single product views, the archive product views, etc…… We just show the vendor information on whatever pages your theme decides to use. We “hook” into it to insert our data. The theme is what is responsible for figuring out how your pages display and look.

    …but the theme does not “know” WC Vendors…is it really not possible to decide which page (template) WooCommerce should use for the Vendor page? It makes no sense to show a sidebar with e.g. product categories the vendor does not use – but it makes perfectly sense to show all categories on the Shop page.

    WooCommerce uses the template file “archive-product.php”, the same page that is used to display categories of products in WooCommerce. That is the template page that WC Vendors hooks into, and transforms the archive-products page into the vendor page. Themes often customize this page further, and have options on full width page, sidebars, etc etc…. That’s why the theme is responsible for displaying the template, and not WC Vendors.

    If I want to customize the vendor page, how and where can I do that? E.g. I want to display a header image for each vendor. The image is added by advanced custom fields, and is found in the user profile. But it could be any image or information, I just want to know where to begin to customize the page.

    That would be the archive-product.php template. Again, though, it isnt part of WC Vendors, that’s a Theme/WooCommerce file. You’d want check if the page requested is for a vendor, and then if it is, grab those custom fields.
