Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » [Plugin: WooCommerce – excelling eCommerce] Change "Categories" to "Artists"

  • I am looking to sell some art with WooCommerce and was hoping to use the label “Categories” as an umbrella for several artists.

    How do I rename it to appear as “Artist” or “Artists” in the right places across the front-end and back-end? Is there a CMS solution I am not seeing?

    Thank you in advance.

    How about using attributes instead?

    Otherwise you can ‘localise’ categories to be artists.

    Thank you. Great idea with localization!

    Also considering attributes now, but it seems that categories have a more prominent place.

    But some concerns:

    – Essentially, there’ll only be a few artists (under 10).
    – There may be more attributes and relate to other things (material, year, size)

    So what is your call on this one?

    Update about attributes: I played around with attributes, but the issue is that they are not clickable on the product page, while the category is. I think I will use that, but I appreciate the suggestion.

    Update about localization: I took a look at the plugin, and it seems pretty clunky to have something like that running on WP for a simple translation of one word (plus any plural or URL variants)… no?

    Question: I also realized that I cannot find a place to rename the terms “product” and “products” anywhere. I would like it to be “artwork” and “artworks” as appropriate — would you suggest localization also for this?

    Any tips? Thank you in advance 🙂
