    my client is a photographer and would like to have the product galleries for purchase set up in many different categories instead of just one big gallery.

    is this possible?

    Hello,

    You can use the Woocommerce shortcode to display a specific category. Just create a page then insert this code

    [product_category category="1" per_page="12" columns="4" orderby="date" order="desc"]

    this looks like it is is close to what I want. However, when I make a new page, there is no “my account” “shopping car” and “check out” at the top.

    I really would like to emulate the default product page, but something within this template puts the products on display at the bottom, so I would like to create a master page with all my categories then each category has it’s own product page like the template has.

    How can I do this? THanks

    Hi metropolitandetail,

    Well you can create product categories that have their own image and description via the woocomerce products area. You can then choose to display product categories in your catalog tab. I think the actual setting series is for Show subcategories but you can use a combination of those options to get exactly what you want. IE show subcategories on the shop page and when showing subcategories hide products.

    When I use the shortcode supplied in this thread, the tables, margins and thumbnails are not the same size as Kriesi’s default flashlight shop page:

    my custom page:

    http://atomic80photography.com/gallery-test/

    default shop page:

    http://atomic80photography.com/gallery/

    What .css do I have to modify if any to emulate the default shop page’s size? And I am still not sure how to get “my account” “shopping car” and “check out” at the top.

    Thanks

    The shortcode is somewhat adaptive to the page so you’ll need to increase the page width so that it has more room with:

    #top.page-id-279 .container .content .box {
    width: 660px;
    }

    You’ll also need to change the shortcode to use 3 columns instead of 4 and clean up the list style type with:

    ul.products li {
    list-style-type: none;
    }

    To get the same exact layout as a WooCommerce shop page, you’ll need to create a new custom page type that echos the same style and layout that the shop pages get applied to them. You can find the php that creates the page header in woocommerce-config>config.php file. Search for:

    function avia_woocommerce_before_main_content()

    It isn’t an easy task as it means creating new page template and writing the php but its the only way I can think of to emulate the shop pages.

    Wow thanks. So I am in the process of doing this, but I am unsure where to clean up the list style with

    ul.products li {

    list-style-type: none;

    }

    place the php or how to create this new page template to add:

    function avia_woocommerce_before_main_content()

    Thanks

    Hi metropolitandetail,

    You can add that to either your Quick CSS in the Styles tab of the theme options or in the custom.css file in your css folder of the theme files.

    Creating the page template isn’t something we can really walk you through as it really is creating an entirely new template based on your needs. A good start is http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    On a basic level, you could just create a page template that has a static menu at the top similar to the product pages but its up to you on how much you want to add to it and what exactly you are looking to customize with it.

    Regards,

    Devin
