Shortcodes included with WooCommerce lacks on the possibility to display products in post or pages filtering them by a custom taxonomy type.

For example in the scenario where we have a custom taxonomy type for products which is called Vendors and this one contains Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Microsoft, … as taxonomy tags elements. If we like to display only the products by Apple in a page or post, here this odd tweak plugin comes to the rescue.

Usage

[woo_products_custom_tax tax_name="vendor" tax_tags="apple" columns="4" template="product" qty="10" order="DESC"]

Attributes

  • tax_name (string) (required): The custom taxonomy slug.
  • tax_tags (string) (required): The custom taxonomy tags slug. Accepts also multiple tags as an array separated by comma (tax_tags=”apple,samsung”).
  • columns (integer) (optional, default = 4): The ammount of products/colums to display per row.
  • template (string) (optional, default = “product”): Specifies the WooCommerce template file to use for displaying products. e.g. Instead of loading the default file /wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/content-product.php you might want to use your custom template override file /wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen/woocommerce/content-my-custom-product-file.php. For this case you can load the template like (template=”my-custom-product-file”).
  • qty (integer) (optional, default = 10): The max ammount of products to display per page/output.
  • order (string) (optional, default = ‘DESC’): The order of products to display per page/output. ‘ASC’ – ascending order from lowest to highest values. ‘DESC’ – descending order from highest to lowest values.
