eCommerce Product Catalog Shortcodes

eCommerce Product Catalog comes with a variety of shortcodes so you can show products and display related data anywhere on the website.

Two main shortcodes:

See catalog docs to see more shortcodes.

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • WordPress 3.5 or greater (The latest version is always recommended)
  • PHP version 5.6 or greater (PHP 8.2 or greater is recommended)

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of impleCode eCommerce Product Catalog, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “impleCode” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our product catalog plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our product catalog plugin and uploading it to your web-server via your favorite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

Upgrading

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

If on the off-chance you do encounter issues with the product catalog pages after an update you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ’save‘. That should return things to normal.

FAQ

Is it possible to use eCommerce product catalog without eCommerce functionality?

Yes, just leave the product price empty and you will disable eCommerce functionality.

Are there any payment gateways?

By default eCommerce Product Catalog works without online payments.

There are payment gateways available on the extensions page.

Will eCommerce Product Catalog work with my theme?

Yes. eCommerce Product Catalog will work with any theme but in some cases may require some styling to make it match nicely. Please see Theme Integration Guide for help.

Why product image is not working?

If you cannot add product image it means that your theme is not supporting featured image feature. Please see WordPress Codex.

How to change category prefix „All“?

To change category prefix or any other front-end text go to product settings > Front-end labels and change to empty or any value.

Where can I request new features, themes and extensions?

We are available on the support forum and through impleCode website.

Where can I report bugs and contribute to the project?

Bugs can be reported on the support forum.

How to disable AJAX on filter widgets and pagination?

If you prefer page reload instead of AJAX functionality place the following code in your child theme functions.php file:

add_action(‚ic_epc_loaded‘, ‚my_epc_mods‘);

function my_epc_mods() {
remove_action( ‚enqueue_main_catalog_scripts‘, array( ‚ic_catalog_ajax‘, ‚enqueue_styles‘ ) );
}

Where can I find impleCode documentation and user guides?

Documentation is available here.

Is this an eCommerce plugin?

Yes, you can select from 4 available modes: web store, inquiry catalog, affiliate catalog or simple catalog to show products.

What’s the difference between eCommerce Product Catalog and classic eCommerce plugin (e.g. store)?

This can be a store but it is not limited to it. It’s main purpose is to present products or services on the website in a convenient and easy to manage way. It’s more lightweight than most of eCommerce Plugins. It’s commonly used for company pages or blogs with product catalogue. It’s easily CSS customizable and has 3 themes for product listings in the default version. It can be configured to work with product quotes (for products without price), order forms (for product with price), payment gateways, PDF specifications and even separate catalogues with separate menus in admin.

Like this program. Had some issues initially, but tech support was pretty responsive and helpful. I really like the various plugins and they seem to be working famously. I would recommend this program to anyone just starting out in the online store business. Thanks ImpleCode!

This "plugin" is beyond amazing! And it's FREE!With paid solutions around, this one sticks out not only because it's FREE, but because it WORKS! There are, of course, many paid add-ons one could purchase that do all kinds of things, but the out-of-the-box package is perfectly capable, well documented, SO easy to use, and the satisfaction of seeing the boss happy is priceless!It has the photos, it has the organization and once again, it's FREE and it WORKS!I love the use of the shortcodes, and whoever designed the functions of what was needed for the database was spot on. I had tried another solution, worked for weeks on it, and couldn't get it to sort (without using tricks). ePC has it figured out! If you have a spreadsheet with products, don't wait, try it now!
