    The shop page uses the archive-product.php file which you can find in the woocommerce/templates/ dir.

    If you edit a template, please be sure to copy it to your theme so you’re safe when you upgrade. You can read about how to do that here;


    Thank you for your reply very much.

    I creat a child templete folder to edit the wp’s twentytwelve templete and woocommerce’s templete. It’s no problem.

    Now my trouble is that I don’t know how to call code to display article list on shop-page. I add a div following the div of products list. In THE div, I call the loop code, but the page display the products list as style of article list in the div. They are not articles.

    Maybe it defaultly call the products data on the shop page when I use wp loop coda, how can I let it call out the articles data?

    Thank you very much

    hi im lookin to put a woocomerce widget in a custom page sidebar
    i dont know why the widjet like price filter doesnt appear
    some help here plz 🙂

    Hello @jameskoster,

    I have copied the archive-product.php like you said but it didn’t make any differences in my /shop/

    Then I tried removing the entire code (except get_header and get_footer) from the plugin’s folder (not my themes) to see if there are any changes, and it didn’t. Am I missing anything?

    @apunahasa I can only assume that you’ve not got the path quite right.

    It should be child_theme/woocommerce/archive-product.php.
