    I have a customer that wants to use WooCommerce but have each one show up in the regular blog posts as well. Is this possible? I've tried searching endlessly for this and I'm not familiar with WooCommerce, so I figured I would post here. Thanks! ;)

    as in they want to write a separate article about each product?

    you could use a product shortcode in the blog posts

    Thanks, I think they want it to just post automatically to the blog page so they don't have to do it again.

    that's just generally a bad idea.
    for one thing, products aren't posts - they don't belong in the blog.

    I'd recommend something more like a widget that displayed the latest 3-5 products in the sidebar.

    I understand that but what the client wants the client gets or they take their money elsewhere. ;)

    I figured you'd say that. You could modify the main query to include the product post type

    something like this:

    global $wp_query;
    $args = array_merge( $wp_query->query_vars, array( 'post_type' => array('post','product') ) );
    $query = query_posts($args);
