This is a simple plugin that will allow an admin to select exactly which Post types eShop should handle - adding custom types and/or removing default ones (page, and post). It also fixes eshop_list_cat_tags shortcode by making it play nicely with Custom Taxonomies.
Edit or create a Custom Type article and see that the eShop Product Entry pane is now showing.
Using as example a Post Type called Portfolio (it can be whatever type you have created), we see it listed in the select box along with all other WordPress post types. Select the desired custom or default types for eShop to support and save the changes.
How do I make [eshop_list_cat_tags] find my products that are under a Custom Taxonomy?
Short Answer: [eshop_list_cat_tags type=”<your custom taxonomy slug>” find=”<your custom taxonomy item slug>”]
Long Answer: Let’s say you have a store and that you don’t want to mix up your products and product categories with your Posts/Pages/Categories. You decide to create your own custom post type and also a custom taxonomy called “Product Categories” (with the slug “product-categories”), and then create a new product category called “My Cool Category” (with the slug my-cool-category).
Out of the box, eShop will not find your products if you try to use [eshop_list_cat_tags type=”category_name” find=”my-cool-category-name”]. The fix is to install this plugin, select your Custom Taxonomy, and save the settings.
You will then be able to call [eshop_list_cat_tags type=”product-categories” find=”my-cool-category”].
