Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Show products from current category only on category page

  • I have no clue why the default for woocommerce (when you select to show products) is to show all products of all children of the current category. Who would want that? I digress.

    Anyway, I’ve found a few threads, but none that really answer my question. Most have to do with the product categories navigation widget, which works just fine, in my opinion.

    What I want to do:
    On a Category page, show the products ONLY IN THAT CATEGORY (or if I have selected both, have it show the child categories but NOT the products in the child categories, and also show the products from ONLY the current category.)

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • The settings for what shows up on your Category pages was moved to Appearance -> Customize -> WooCommerce -> Product Catalog a few versions ago. Is your “Category Display” set to “Show Products?”

    Hi there,

    What linux4me2 said :). Did you have time to check that setting yet?

    Kind regards,

    Yes, it is currently set to “show subcategories.” Maybe I didn’t explain my problem properly.

    Let’s say I have
    Bubble Mailers
    (Hidden Archive)
    Cardboard Mailers

    There might be 10 items in the generic “mailers” category. I would want the “Mailers” page to show:
    Subcategories (Bubble, Cardboard)
    The 10 items in the “Mailers” category

    And nothing else. Currently, if I select “subcategories and products” I get the subcategories and the items in ALL of those categories (not just the current one.)

    Also, I am using a “table” plugin, so when I go the the category “kraft” I want to be able to display ONLY the one Item in the Kraft category (which contains the form.) The “hidden” category contains the items that the form pulls from. I do not want these displayed (I use CSS to hide the category.)
    So I select “products only” for the “Kraft” category, but it shows the one product in the kraft category AND all of the products in the child categories (in this case, the hidden category.)
