WooProduct Shortcode

Description

Add WooCommerce products into posts and pages using a shortcode, along with formatting options. The default WooCommerce shortcode for a single product had undesired formatting results, due to the way it was structured within a list. This plugin creates to [wooproduct] shortcode to drop single products into the text of your posts while having control over the formatting and CSS styles.

Please note this will not necesarily make your product info look “pretty”, as this plugin provides no CSS styles. It does, however, give you the required class (“wooproduct”) to apply custom CSS styles the resulting product info box to your heart’s content.

You are welcome to add comments and questions into the Plugin Support page. I will be as active as possible with responses.

FAQ

Can I add multiple products within the same page or post?

Yes, there is no limit to the number of [wooproduct] shortcodes on a single page. It was built with the intention of creating lists of recommended products.

Does it work for any shopping cart?

No, this shortcode works exclusively with WooCommerce.

I paste my product SKU or ID into the shortcode and nothing shows up! Why?

You have to be careful copying and pasting numbers from your product list into your page editor. Sometimes it can also copy over colors and formatting code (HTML) that will break the shortcode. If you’re having trouble with a code, try highlighting the shortcode and clicking “Remove Formatting”, then save your post again.
