If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I am using abundance for a site that has 3 levels of categories. I have been trying to get the layout of the categories to be different for the different levels without success. For example, I have many grandchild categories, which I;d liek to have the archive page display as a list – title, price, and possible excerpt (no thumbnails). The next level up of child categories needs to display in the standard 4 column layout, and the top level parent category in the 3 column layout – this is because the type of products listed are actually quite different (its cars, makes, then models).
Is this possible, and if so can you please give me some pointers?
Any help greatly appreciated.
I’m actually not even sure if this is possible. As far as I know Woo Commerce doesn’t differentiate between child levels of products so the only thing I can think of would be to use shortcodes for specific product categories and then attempt to style those pages specifically with css.
It wouldn’t be accessible through the Shop>product>subproduct breadscrum structure but you could create your own structure via the menus manager and the various pages.
OK thanks Devin… think i’m onto a solution using bespoke taxonomy templates for the higher level categories… may speak to the woo-boys about a possible idea/enhancement
