Are you a Woocommerce store owner looking for a way to showcase your products on the homepage? Do you want to show off the latest items in your store or highlight certain collections? You can easily add Woocommerce products to your homepage with a few clicks. In this blog post, we’ll show you how!
Step 1: Install WooCommerce Plugin
Installing the WooCommerce plugin is the first step to creating your online store. It is a simple process that can be done in a few minutes. All you need to do is visit the Plugins » Add New page in your WordPress admin and search for WooCommerce. WordPress will then show you the plugin search results, and you can click ‘Install Now’ and activate it. After that, you can open your WordPress dashboard and go to WooCommerce > Products and click the Create Product button to get started.
Step 2: Add a New Product and Title
Once you’ve installed WooCommerce, it’s time to add your first product. To do so, go to WooCommerce > Products > Add Product. You’ll find a familiar interface that should make adding a new product a breeze. Enter a product title and choose the type of product you’re adding. If needed, you can add custom attributes to your product by navigating to the Attributes tab. When you’re done, click the Publish button to save your new product.
Step 3: Create a New Products Page
Once you have installed the WooCommerce plugin, you can create a new page where your products will be displayed. To do this, go to Pages, then click Add New. Give the page a title, and then add the WooCommerce shortcode. The shortcode will display all the products on your site. You can also use widgets to display specific products on your page. To customize your product page further, you can filter products by parameter and even rearrange the order in which they appear.
Step 4: Use Shortcode or Widgets to Display Products
Once you have created the new products page, you can use shortcodes or widgets to display the featured products on the homepage. To do this, you can either use a text widget and paste a shortcode into it or you can add a WooCommerce featured products widget. With the widget, you can easily choose which products to feature and how many products to show on the homepage. Additionally, with the shortcode, you can specify criteria for which products should be featured. For example, you can use the ‘taxonomies’ parameter to filter by product categories. You can also set featured products using the quick edit option, which is helpful when you want to edit some basic information about an existing product.
Step 5: Filter Products by Parameter
The next step is to filter the products according to specific parameters. This can be done by using the WordPress WP_Query class. By using this class, you can easily filter the products according to various parameters such as price, stock, and attributes. Annasta Woocommerce Product Filters is an advanced WooCommerce filters solution that provides fast and flexible search through the products of your shop. In order to use this plugin, you will need to add attributes to your WooCommerce products and access the Query Settings. You can also customize the search results page by adding product filters such as price or stock. With these filters in place, customers can easily find the products they are looking for on your store.
Step 6: Create Homepage Section Settings
After setting up the product page, it’s time to create the homepage section settings. To do this, go to Settings >> Reading in your admin dashboard. Set Your homepage displays to A static page. Select the static page we created in step 1 as the homepage and save the changes. This step will enable you to display your WooCommerce products on the homepage.
Step 7: Disable Home Shop Section
In Step 7, you need to disable the Home Shop page section. This can be done by going to WordPress admin > Appearance > Customize > Frontpage Sections. Here you can enable or disable this section as per your requirement. After disabling it, your homepage will no longer display the shop page section. You can then choose to add different product display blocks instead, such as product grids, best-selling products, or most recent products. You can also use a shortcode or widget to add WooCommerce products to any part of your homepage.
Step 8: Use Shortcode to Display Products
Adding products to your homepage using shortcodes is easy and effective. You can display products by post ID, SKU, categories or attributes. You can also sort products randomly and set a limit to the number of products you want to display. To use the shortcode, open up the post editor in WordPress and place the cursor where you want the shortcode to appear. Then simply use the [products] shortcode, followed by the parameters and values that you want to use. For example, [products limit=8 columns=3] will only display 8 products in 3 columns.
Step 9: Add Product Title and Description
Once you have chosen the product type and categories, the next step is to add product title and description. You can do this by navigating to the ‘General’ tab of the product page. This will allow you to customize the product title, description and add tags for better search engine optimization. You may also add custom product attributes here, such as colors, sizes, etc. Once you are done filling in the details, click ‘Publish’ or ‘Update’ to save your changes.
Step 10: Drag WooCommerce Featured Products Widget
Once you have created the product page, you can easily display the products on your homepage. To do this, you need to drag the WooCommerce Featured Products widget from the available widgets section to a sidebar on the right. This widget allows you to set a title, number of products and show featured products on the homepage. This is a great way to display your products and promote products that are currently on sale or have recently arrived in store. Additionally, by using a shortcode, you can also filter products by parameters such as price range, categories or tags. With this simple and effective step, you can create an attractive and user-friendly homepage for your store.
