That's unfortunate, but good to know. Thanks for clarifying.
I'm still having problems with the Layered Nav widget not showing up. (I do have a side bar, am using the correct shop page, and everything else I put there shows up so I know it is done correctly.) I realize this could be a Woocommerce problem and not a Replete problem, but I have scoured the internet, searching on every term I can think of, and can't find an answer. I've read all the docs for Woocommerce, too (which are pretty sparse).
I also notice that the Woocommerce documentation seems to be contradictory. It tells you in the documentation "Custom attributes can be applied here too by choosing ‘Custom product attribute’ from the select box. These are added at the product level and won’t be available in the layered navigation." However, if you go to Products > Attributes in the Wordpress admin panel to set up the attributes, it says "You can use these attributes in the shop sidebar using the "layered nav" widgets.". They are referring to the custom attributes that show up in the dropdown menu on the product page - the same one they say you can't use in the documentation. And if you select these options, then "update", they immediately disappear again, so it's mute.
There is also an option to type in a word, and those seem to stick on update, but still, no layered nav appears in the sidebar.
I'm so frustrated and I don't know where to turn. I spent many hours yesterday going in circles with this. Please can you help? Is it the combination of Woocommerce and Replete?
