[closed] Category description under the products (5 posts)

    Dear Woocommerce developers,

    I'm having a hard time customizing woocommerce, I don't quite grasp the hook and template concept as a front-end developer and magento user.

    I'm trying to get the category description under the products, I found the loop where it generates the products in content-product.php. But I have no idea how to swap the position of the description and the output of products. I found the function of the description div in woocommerce-template.php

    function woocommerce_taxonomy_archive_description() {
    if ( is_tax( array( 'product_cat', 'product_tag' ) ) && get_query_var( 'paged' ) == 0 ) {
    $description = apply_filters( 'the_content', term_description() );
    if ( $description ) {
    echo '<div class="term-description">' . $description . '</div>';

    But I have no idea how to proceed, and how to proceed without adjusting the core file.

    I find it extremely hard to adjust core files, you can create custom template files but I had to adjust some of the core file because I had no idea how to override those ( they don't work with custom template files ). Woocommerce is very dummy proof out-of-the-box, but when it comes to customizing, it's way more complex then Magento imo.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm experiencing the same problem! Having an description above the products isn't really user friendly.

    Does anyone have a solution for this?
