    I thought I had posted something about this, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I’ll try to explain the issue and my question(s) the best I can.

    To start, I have created 4 catalogs; “Personal Hosting”, “Business Hosting”, “Guardian 360 for Home”, and “Guardian 360 for Business”.

    The issue I am having is that I can successfully add multiple catalogs (right now I am just using the “personal hosting” and “business hosting” until I get everything figured out) onto one page (/shop) and click on a product link to look at the product page for that item (in this example /shop/?SingleProduct=2).

    The problem that I am seeing is that on the single product page I am seeing the same “product” picture, and description displayed twice and seeing the “Personal Hosting Plans”, and “Business Hosting Plans” text on that page (/shop/?SingleProduct=2) as well. If anything, “Personal Hosting Plans” should be displayed. This will also happen if I go to my /hosting page, as if I were going to buy the hosting package, and click the “Get it” button. It takes me right to the single product page and displays it the same way I have described.

    Should I not be able to click a product link on the /shop page and take me to a page where it shows the one product and pertinent information for that product despite having multiple catalogs listed on the /shop page? I use woocommerce, which seems to allow only one page to be the/a “shop” page, where I should be placing my catalogs, as well in hopes to integrate this into that.

    Hopefully I have made sense of all that. Let me know of any questions you may have.

    Hi therealcrazy8,

    The product is appearing twice because you’ve added two [product-catalogue id='… shortcodes to the /shop/ page.

    Instead of listing that shortcode twice, we would suggest:
    1) you create a catalogue with 4 categories (“Personal Hosting”, “Business Hosting”…etc)
    2) add your products into each category
    3) Add only one shortcode on /shop/
    4) Finally, add the four categories (not the products) to your catalogue.

    This will result in it dividing the products into sections, like how it is in our demo: https://www.etoilewebdesign.com/ultimate-product-catalogue-demo/#

    OH MAN! That worked out perfect. Once you mentioned what I should be doing, it made perfect sense. I think the only thing left that I am not sure how to do, is removing that side bar deal that shows up when you go to the single product pages. How could I go about removing that?

    Thank a gain for your help

    Hi therealcrazy8,

    You could remove the additional images sidebar by adding the following CSS to the “Custom CSS” box found by navigating to the “Catalogues” tab and selecting the catalog:

    
    div.prod-cat-addt-details-thumbs-div {
        display: none !important;
    }
