4.6 out of 5 stars
Formatting breaks
By ,

Breaks formatting if divs or tables are added into the description, disables media addition links.

Wouldn't it be quite a reasonable expectation that people would like to add tables or more images into the description? Wouldn't it be reasonable to assume they do so using some sort of templating engine?

Well designed and customizable plugin

Excellent way to list not only products on a store site, but also services or widgets for downloading. Easy to customize. Well worth the few-hours learning curve!

Best features:

  • Item descriptions can include WP shortcodes
  • Thumb sizing is customizable
  • With minor CSS customization the catalog can be made responsive (e.g.: using percentages for thumb dimensions)
  • Easy to index using a menu or categories dropdown, for example, in a sidebar widget

I love the Catablog plugin. I used two type of catablog visuals to show our hotels on our website.

Via a list with descriptions at

And via our Visual Gallery without the description at

Everything made with Catablog. Really fantastic.

Thanks a million !

Great Plug in

Really simple to use and by far better than commercial products

Poor Free Version

Since it is impossible to edit vital information - i.e. currency - in the free version, I will not be considering upgrading to the full version in the future.

Working like a charm

I have tried to find a simple products catalogue. This is just what I was looking for. Very customisable templates with basic knowledge of html/css.

5 starts, thanks!

I wasn't sure about Catablog at first. But once I got used to it I found it to be pretty powerful. Using it as a viable store takes some work since you'll need to create new store templates to add option like size, color, etc.

I didn't like the fact that "store" opened up a new window so I had to fix that. I would LOVE a widget that makes the paypal cart show in a side bar. I would also like a "view cart" feature or link. And I would like to see or get help making subphotos show as a row under the main picture.

Another feature I would like to see is the ability for it to auto focus photos. Some photos look blurry as a larger thumbnail.
But as it is now, it works fine.

Great for building a resources page for affiliate marketing

Just what I needed. A clean plugin without all the unnecessary bells and whistles.

CataBlog, good and better still - hopefully...

Good plugin. Thanks!

This plugin is an indispensable addition to any product catalogue toolbox and a must for Anyone wanting to create a shop window in order to venture into e-commerce.

I would give it 5 stars but I choose 4-out-of-5 stars because, to my knowledge, the custom fields are not operational as yet. If I'm not mistaken the custom fields addition had been enlisted as a soon-to-be-added feature. Would be great to have them implemented in an upcoming version.

I would be willing to revise my rating and to provide a more comprehensive review when this feature-request has been addressed. Needless to say, the average star rating is significantly high and I do not think that my input can detract from the overall positive reception which this plugin seems to enjoy.

Good Luck with all future roll-outs!

Many thanks.
