How do I make a custom product loop in woocommerce just for category display?

Hi,

I'm using WordPress and the Woocommerce plugin and I need to display the category loops differently from the main shop loop but can't work out how to do it.

The theme that I am using uses shortcodes to pull in the product loops. For example:

[product_category category="Courses" orderby="name" order="asc"]

Open in new window


I need to customise this and other category loops differently from the main shop which displays all products.

The main shop will remain as a 4 column grid but the category pages need to have a totally different layout and styling.

I've been all over the web and grepped for code and tags in the plugin dir but I just can't find any hint of what I need to do.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

You can do the following:

Add columns attribute to the shortcode e.g:
[product_category category="Courses" orderby="name" order="asc" columns="3"]

Open in new window


Style it with CSS (add this to your child theme's style.css) e.g.:
.woocommerce.columns-3 ul.products li.product {
    float: left;
    margin: 0 3.8% 2.992em 0;
    padding: 0;
    position: relative;
    width: 29.4%;
}

Open in new window


You can also try to override content-product_cat.php template
by copying it to yourchildtheme/woocommerce/content-product_cat.php.
