    I have been trying to work out the difference between shop categories and word press categories. Can someone please explain?

    I am also confused about how this theme works so I have some questions:

    1. How do I add text and images to a page with a dynamic template?

    2. Why does my shop page seem to operate differently when I add categories to it? For example, I have three categories that link to product pages on my shop page, but when i try to place text on the page or add a post with text in it in the theme template builder, it doesn’t work. I can add text by visiting the page and pasting plain text, but the formatting is different to other pages.

    Also, what are tags and how do they work?

    Im confused??? my website address is if you want to check it out.




    1) The difference is that “shop categories” are just available for products and you can assign “products” to “shop categories”. Standard categories (you call them “word press categories”) on the other hand will not affect your products/shop but they help you to categorize your posts on the blog page.

    2) Create a dynamic template on the Template Builder page (Abundance > Template Builder), then save the template and go to Pages > All Pages. Select the page which you want to use with the template and in the right sidebar of the page editor screen select the dynamic template. If you added a “Slideshow Element” or “Page/Post” Content Element to the dynamic template you can use the slideshow options and the standard text editor field to insert your content. The page will then display the text/slideshow where you added the “Slideshow Element” or “Page/Post Content” Element to the template.

    3) Tags can be used like categories and they help you to “mark” related stuff. Eg if you want to write some posts about “Politics” you can create a new category “Politics” and use this category for your posts. But then you might want to help your users to find related entries – like posts about “President Obama”, posts about “UNO”, etc. and the best practice in this case would be to use tags instead of categories coz you want to “highlight” related content of entries with the same category…


    Awesome! That clears that issue up for me.

    Just a couple of other questions…

    1. Is there a way to remove the heading from my pages. For example on the SHOP page of my site the page is displayed with the heading SHOP and a thumbnail image description. I would like to remove both of these things from the page if possible. If not possible, can I reduce the font size at least as it is very large.

    2. There is a little navigation message below the heading also that says “You are here: Shop>>Wholesale.” This seems a little unnecessary to me and if possible I would like to remove it. Can it be done?

    Thanks again.


    Also, I have created a dynamic template for my shop page, and have linked it to the page but any changes I make to the template aren’t working. Do dynamic templates not apply to woo commerce pages?



    I can’t even add the widget ‘recently viewed items’ to my shop page?????


    Dont worry about the above Ive worked most of it out now. I have switched to the default template for my shop page but i still have a couple of problems…

    1. Why is my ‘shop’ page displaying page/post content differently to my ‘about us’ page, when both are using the default template? (I want all my pages to display written information like my about page. I dont believe I have done anything differently but they look different live!

    2. Also, can I somehow remove the ‘Related Products’ panel from the single products page? I dont need it.

    3. I still cannot get rid of the little navigation message that appears below the heading on single product pages that says “You are here: Shop>>Wholesale.” It looks daggy.

    Please help…my url is



    1.) Shop page is using a different template which comes from the woocommerce plugin. You have to modify the theme in a major way to make them look like the about page etc.

    2.) You can add this on your custom.css or Quick CSS to remove the related products.

    .single .related.products {
    display: none;

    3.) You can remove the breadcrumb by adding this on your custom.css or Quick CSS

    .single .breadcrumb.breadcrumbs.avia-breadcrumbs {
    display: none;




    thanks for that.

    I was able to remove the related products panel, but the bread crumb css didnt work unfortunately. Any other ideas?

    Also, is it possible to make the font on woo commerce pages larger at least? It looks like 10/11px at the moment which is too small, and it appears light grey which is very hard to read. Any ideas how to fix this?


    Also, i still havent managed to get rid of that ridiculously enormous heading at the top of may main pages…any clues?



    Ignore the above, its sorted, but…

    When i removed the headings and thumbnails (using appropriate css) from my shop pages, it left a large gap at top of my pages. Can this space be closed a little?



    There is also a ‘default sorting widget’ to the right of this space that I would like to remove. Can it be done?


    oh, and I can get rid of the breadcrumbs on woo commerce pages! Any other suggestions?


    1) If you want to remove the breadcrumbs from all woocommerce pages use

    .single .breadcrumb.breadcrumbs.avia-breadcrumbs, .woocommerce .breadcrumb.breadcrumbs.avia-breadcrumbs {
    display: none;

    2) If you want to reduce the white space at the top insert following code into the quick css field.

    .title_container {
    padding: 0 225px 26px 0;

    and change the third value (26px). Decrease it to reduce the gap.

    3) You can hide the “sorting” dropdown with

    .js_active #top .title_container_image .woocommerce-ordering, .js_active #top .title_container_description .woocommerce-ordering{
    display: none;
