ProductContent not showing up on Default Template

Recommended Posts




I would like to have the products display on my homepage (uses Default template) and although I have the ProductContent active in my section nothing is showing up on my homepage.

I did read somewhere that ProductLoop, Breadcrumb etc, would have to be active as well, but these options are only available for the ProductArchive template. Does this mean that ProductContent can't be displayed on any other pages except the Shop page?


As an alternative I tried using the shortcode [recent_products per_page="12" columns="4"] but all the products were displayed in one list, rather than multiple columns so that didn't work...


Any help would be much appreciated.

Correct, you can only use the Product Loop on the Product Archive and Product Templates. 


To use the shortcode you need to add some extra code. I would suggest to change the template to Template 1 and then put the code below in Pagelines --> Site Options --> Custom Code --> CSS/LESS.

.alpha .hentry {
	clear: none; /* Fix for columns not rendering */

If you need to use another of the templates replaces .alpha with .beta for Template 2, .gamma for Template 3, .delta for Template 4 and .epsilon for Template 5.


Let me know if that works.

      I am running into problems with the Woocommerce for Pagelines plugin, version 1.3.1. As soon as I activate it, the Shop page is rendered completely blank, even the Editor disappears. I have no other plugins active except Pagelines Updater and DMS Professional Tools. Could I be doing something wrong or is there an incompatibility? I suspect the former because I'm sure Woocommerce for Pagelines must be compatible with Woocommerce... It looks so promising and I'd love to use it! I must say that I am new to Woocommerce in general, but I tried every setting I could think of and work out and simply cannot get it to work with Woocommerce for Pagelines. My site in question is www.knetgut.de.
      I hope you can shed light on this and I appreciate your assistance! Yours faithfully, Jan Caspers.

      I am having trouble adding variables to a product. Couple of my products contain many variables and noticed that every time I update the product, variables all become default, or the stock quantity and price that I added become blank.
      I tried deleting some of these variables and readded them, which I thought was the only solution, but even when these variables work, when I check back later, other variables become blank. It has been very frustrating and time-consuming, is there any solution to this problem?
      (I tried deactivation plugins but that did not work, I tried duplicating the product and that did not work as well)
      for products: 'Party' and 'Glow in the dark splatter party'
      I will send the login info.
      Thank you so much in advance!

      I know this may be simple but seems nothing is working.  I changed columns from 4 to 6 in the shortcode and I still see 4 columns.  I also changed the image sizes to fit with the 6 columns and nothing changed.  cannot find the php code in functions that people are talking about changing.  Anyone know of any way to add more columns thus making the images smaller per line?

      My products are not displaying correctly and I cant see the content that is hindering them from working because its just blank data.  I can select it but no text/content displays.  any help would be great because I am finally starting to get this together.
