Welcome The New WooCommerce Categories Module

by | Jun 4, 2020 | News | 18 comments

I’m pleased to announce the release of a new version of the popular WooCommerce Builder For Divi plugin. Version 3.1 is now available to download. It has been a while since I released new modules, but this new version has a whole new module that has been requested a lot to display WooCommerce categories. This update also adds support for WooCommerce 4.2.

    I just added this module, and I’m very happy. I only wish there was a way to limit the categories (or hide some categories).

    • Abdou

      Glad you like the module and thanks for the suggestions, I’ll look into them 🙂

      • Raymond Wong

        When will this feature be available? Client bought the plugin because of Divi Category Module. Is that any work around for now?

        • Abdou

          This feature has been added already! You can select which categories to display.

    Hi Abdelfatah,
    that sounds good and should be a useful extension of the plugin.
    Maybe it would also make sense to use the category module with a list view (with and without category image)?

    • Abdou

      Thank you Thomas. yes, it makes sense, I’ll add them in a future update.

  3. Rasheed

    Thanks for the update.

    • Abdou

      You are much welcome 🙂

  4. Jason

    Really love to be able to add categories to pages. Any way to limit it to show only the immediate subcategories to a category?

    • Abdou

      Glad you like it. This is not possible in the current version.

  5. Jeff

    Would be nice to be able to select which specific categories to display. I am currently using WooCommerce short codes to do this. [product_categories hide_empty= “1” number=”4″ orderby=”include”  ids=”203, 208, 204, 209″]

    • Abdou

      Thank you for your suggestion, I’ll do that in a future update.

  6. Arnold

    Hi Abdou,

    Your plugin is easy and useful. Well, one thing I miss. I have been waiting for long time to the modul Ajax Add to Cart. This would make your plugin complete.

    • Abdou

      Thank you, Arnold!
      Do you mean on the product page? I’ll add it to my to-do

  7. Michelle LaRose

    Is there a way add pagination for the categories? I only want to show 10 categories at a time if possible.

    • Abdou

      Sorry, this is not possible.

  8. Michelle LaRose

    Is it possible to only show an excerpt of the category description?

    • Abdou

      No, the full description will be displayed.
