asked on

is_page() not working properly

Hi,

I have a wordpress site with WooCommerce and I am trying to display a banner on the main shop page.

I have added the following code to the wrapper-start.php (the shop loop's wrapper).

In the beginning is_page didn't work at all and didn't show the banner, and when I used is_archive it worked, but appeared on all pages with products on them and not just the main shop page. I found a post here that said to add wp_reset_query and use is_page. Now is_page is showing the banner but again, it shows up on all pages (like this one when I want it to show up only on the main /shop page.

Here is the code I have:

      
<?php wp_reset_query();
	if (!is_page('Shop')) {
	echo do_shortcode("[lbg_kenburnsslider settings_id='2']");
	}
	?>

Open in new window


Please advise.

Thanks

I am trying to display a banner on the main shop page.

So that would imply you want the banner on shop and not elsewhere?

if (!is_page('Shop'))

Open in new window


Would put the banner everywhere not with a title of 'Shop'

If you meant to use the slug, it would have been:

if (!is_page('shop')) {
	echo do_shortcode("[lbg_kenburnsslider settings_id='2']");
	}

Open in new window


Given that a lot of people get confused by this, I always prefer to use the ID:
if (!is_page(20)) {
	echo do_shortcode("[lbg_kenburnsslider settings_id='2']");
	}

Open in new window


Finally, are you sure you want to be using ! here?

so i need to remove the ! before is_page, otherwise it is not?

That didn't work. (or is that not what you meant?)

Also does this page have an ID if it is a generated page, basically an archive page? if it does, how do I find what the ID is?

Thanks
