The only way I've found to add product categories to custom menus is to add them as "custom" links, using html like
or, (live link)
Isn't there something more ... integral to Woocommerce that does this?
I'm just trying to build a store structure that is going to hold up to theme changes, that doesn't use any hacks or php code insertions, just the core functionality of Woocommerce and perhaps plugins/extensions if absolutely needed.
Is this method as good as it gets?
The examples are a pure test (sandbox) store that obviously ins't going to go live as a place to buy woozles and hefalumps.
I've got a more elaborate test store at another URL, this one only has 4 simple products, but it should be enough to test/demonstrate product categories.
