    Hi there,

    i’d like to sort out the order of my products in the shop page. The order wasn’t sorted out like how I arranged them in Woocommerce. May I know how do I deal with this issue please?

    Thank you!



    Did you select “Default sorting” on the admin page (WooCommerce > Settings > Catalog)? Otherwise WC will not use your custom order but will sort the products alphabetically, etc.

    Best regards,



    On the same note, I am using short codes to insert individual categories on their own pages. I have the Woocommerce sorting method set to default, and on the general shop page, everything is working smoothly and according to the orders I have defined.

    The problem is that on the page where I am using the short code to display the category, the items are still being sorted by the most recent. Any assigned rankings don’t appear to be universal. Another issue is that no sort box is showing on these pages. This makes it very hard for customers to navigate the page and find what they are looking for. Example:

    Is there a way to edit and add content to the category pages themselves, or am I stuck using short codes that won’t behave?

    TIA for your help!



    You can add a description text to the category pages (see: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -of-product ).




    I gave it a shot but I had a couple of issues with the result.

    What I’m trying to do is have this (social media and search bar at the top, big splashy image and writing):

    but immediately below it, instead of using the shortcode to include category items, I want to have an ADDITIONAL bar with sort box, followed by category items like this:

    So basically, a standard category page with a nice heading above it and search/social media at the very top.

    When I inserted the heading into the description area on the category page, it looked lovely, except that the sort box popped up in the middle of the big image in the heading, and there was no social media/search bar.

    Please let me know if there’s a way to add the sort box (linked to that category’s short code) to the content of the page itself.

    Thanks for your help, I appreciate it!


    Hi PearlsIntl,

    No, I don’t believe there is. The shortcode product output is independent of any setting on the page.

    What you might want to try is creating a template with the template builder that uses the layout you want and for the products use the product element. Then try and set it the way you want it.




    Ok, I’ve set up the page with the product element and the layout that I want. However there is still no way to sort the category.

    How do I get the sort bar to show up on this page?


    The only pages that will get the woocommerce sorting function are those generated by woo commerce. So the main shop page and then any overview page generated by it.

    I apologize if I was unclear but I meant you can use the template builder to create a page layout with its own settings and view and using the elements Sorting Option to choose how its output without any other user control. As of now, the theme doesn’t have a way to display one


    Ok, bummer. That would be a great addition for the next update. Thanks for your help!
