Woocommerce description loop

Recommended Posts

King Creative Design

I am setting up a Woocommerce site using PL Framework and Platform 5. I added a hook so the category description appears under the category page titles (on archive pages). However, it also appears under the title on the main "shop" page (which I have renamed "Catelog" page). There is a default description here and I can't figure out for the life of me where it is being generated from so I can change it. Any ideas how to change it or delete it on the main shop page ONLY? The staging site is here - http://16e.117.myftpupload.com/ and the page in question is http://16e.117.myftpupload.com/catalog/

I have hit up Woocommerce support and they weren't familiar with Platform 5 and recommended I contact you.

Your help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi,

Do you want it to look like this? : https://cl.ly/3d1h0x1j1o17

You can apply this code in to your LESS/CSS editor: 
.woocommerce-loop-category__title{
    display: none;
}

Hi Edgar, thanks for looking at this.

Unfortunately, when I add the css you gave me it doesn't work. (P.S. I fixed the double underscore that you have between category and title and still doesn't work).

I'm not trying to remove the 'title', but I am trying to remove the 'description'. The below css works however, it removes it from of ALL the category pages and I'm looking to ONLY take it off the main store page.

.woocommerce-category-description {
  display: none;
}

I think the best thing for me here would be to find out where this comment/description "This is where you can add new products to your store." comes from so I can reword it.

Any ideas?

By the way, this outlines what I did to get the description to show under the title, by modifying the archive-product.php file in the child theme -- 

This is the new code I added:

//show category description
$term_object = get_queried_object();
?>
<div class="woocommerce-category-description">
    <div class="title"><?php echo $term_object->name; ?></div>
    <div class="description"><?php echo $term_object->description; ?></div>
</div>
                <?php

 

this is the code which already existed. I put the new code right above this:

        <?php
            /**
             * woocommerce_archive_description hook.
             *
             * @hooked woocommerce_taxonomy_archive_description - 10
             * @hooked woocommerce_product_archive_description - 10
             */
            do_action( 'woocommerce_archive_description' );
        ?>

    </header>

Hi Michael,

Ha ok, so you want to change the description  'This is where you can add new products to your store'.

Yes, the problem is that they have the same CSS class in all the pages, so if you apply display none, is going the disappear in all the pages.

How did you apply the content in the description?

I apply the category description in the Woocommerce product category section. When you set up a new category there is a place to add a description. Obviously, the shop page is not a category so it does not apply in this scenario.

Unfortunately, your idea didn't work because it's a dynamic page and the template can not be modified that way.

However... I was able to do a workaround. I created a stand-alone static page and put the category photos in manually (not dynamically).

Then, in the functions.php (in the child theme) I put the following code which assigns a custom url from the empty cart page.

 

/**
 * Changes the redirect URL for the Return To Shop button in the cart.
 *
 * @return string
 */
function wc_empty_cart_redirect_url() {
return '/design-africa-catalog/';
}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_return_to_shop_redirect', 'wc_empty_cart_redirect_url' );

      I am trying to resolve a few issues. The first one is when I have the Platform 5 activated the product image will not display. However, once I deactivate the plugin the image will appear.  Can someone tell me if there is a article on how to customize the WooCommerce product, and shop pages using PageLines?

      Hey Everyone,
       
      Ever since the latest wordpress update, woocommerce will not display the product images. When you click where they should be they pop up in a light box, but otherwise are not visible. The errors appear to be theme related. Is there an update or fix for this?
