The main shortcode is products. With this you can present the products in different display types, sortings, etc.

Code (Example 1)

[products layout="grid" limit="10" orderby="rating" order="asc" manufacturer="canon"]

Using this line of code, the shortcode would display 10 products in the grid-view. The products are sorted by their rating. The order would be ASC (ascending) and the output would only be effective for products, which are assigned to the taxonomy (manufacturer) CANON.

Keep in mind, that every taxonomy has a different name. So if you use “brand” instead of “manufacturer”, the last parameter have to be brand=”canon”.

Code (Beispiel 2)

[products layout="list" include="123,459,789" orderby="date"]

Lorem ipsum dolor ...

[products layout="list" exclude="123,459,789" orderby="date"]

This example shows the true power of this shortcode. Initially the products will be displayed on two positions in the list-view and sorted by date. Special here are the attributes “include” and “exclude”.

With the first shortcode only products with the ID 123, 456 and 789 will be displayed on your page. These may be the “top three printers”.

After that you can give a little content and then integrate almost the same shortcode right below, but this time with the attribute “exclude”. This means that in this listing products with these IDs are not shown. In doing this you would have the top three products above, after that some content, and then the rest of the products. As a consequence you can minimize the „Ads Above Fold“ rather well. Of course you can mix and match, hence show the grid-view above and the list-view below.


Name Content Default value Default value
limit Number 12 Sets the limit on how many products should be displayed. For example for „the top 10 coffee machines”.
Determines the number of products; expects a numeric value.
orderby ID, author, title, name, date, modified, rand, comment_count, menu_order, post__in, rating, rating_count, price date Sorting of the products. Sorting of the products. An extensive documention can be found in the WordPress Codex. In addition you can sort by rating. For this, use the value “rating”.
order various DESC Order of the sorting.
Here you can specify how the sorting should take place: ascending or descending (for example for “the 10 most expensive coffee machines”)
asc Sorts the products by ascending (z => a // 1 => 999)
desc Sorts the products by descending.
include Number IDs of products, which should be displayed, separated by comma
Here you can specify one or more product IDs. The list is limited to this product/these products. Well suited for include=”1”, in order to only show 1 product, then put in a little text. After that you can…
exclude Number IDs of products, which should not be displayed, separated by comma.
…use the feature “exclude”, which works the other way round, in order to integrate the rest of the list.
layout div. list
grid Displays all products in a grid. 3 side by side. With smaller devices 2 or 1.

taxonomy slug The output (of products) can be filtered by the created taxonomies. Instead of „taxonomy“, the defined slug, e.g. “brand”, is specified. As value, the slug of the category is used. For example: brand=”canon”. In doing this, all products of the category Canon (wich is a term of the taxonomy brand) are shown.
