Category Listing for WooCommerce

Description

WooCommerce displays categories and products in the same list by default, which doesn’t look very good and it’s hard for the user to understand, what is products and what is categories.

This little plugins splits categories and products into two separate lists.

It’s important that you DON’T ask WooCommerce to “Show categories and products” in the Customizing Tab. Set it to the default option “Show products”, and the separate listing for categories will automatically be added before the list of products.

The frontend is by default in English, but is also available in German, Spanish, Danish and Russian. POT included for easy translation with Poedit, WPML or Polylang.

FAQ

Will the plugin create a separate listing for categories?

Yes, all your categories will be shown above the product list on archive pages.

Will I be able to determine what pages will show the category listing?

No, at the moment the plugin is always showing the categories above the products. If the current category doesn’t have any subcategories, no categories will be shown.

The default WooCommerce "Show Categories & Products on the shop pages can be messy and confusing. This plugin perfectly solves the issue in a nice and user friendly way. No more guessing or miss clicking between a category or a product!
