JetWooBuilder plugin makes the process of creating a WooCommerce shop page template much easier. This tutorial will lead you through it step-by-step.
Bear in mind that a shop product page should be created after an archive page, and only then you should add the shop. Also, you’d need to add several WooCommerce products in the Products menu tab to create a shop page.
1 Step — Enable shop widgets
Go to JetPlugins > JetWooBuilder Settings and scroll down to Shop Product Available Widgets block. Turn on the toggles of widgets you would like to use for the Shop page template.
2 Step — Create the template
Proceed to the JetPlugins > Jet Woo Templates tab in the WP Dashboard sidebar. Click the “Add New Template” button.
There will be a starting pop-up window. Select the “Shop” option in This template for drop-down menu and type in the Template Name. If you are somehow confused about the shop page layout, you can choose a pre-set in the Start from Layout section. Afterward, click the “Create Template” button.
3 Step — Fill the shop page with widgets
Here you can start creating a shop page template by filling it up with all the needed widgets. The shop template is applied when you open one of the product category pages, and it shows the elements you’ve included in the template.
There are eight widgets available in shop page builder, so let’s take a brief look at each of them.
This widget displays the description you wrote for the specific category. In the Style tab, you can choose the Text Color, Typography, and Alignment of the text.
The Products Grid widget will place a grid with a certain number of products to the page. You set that number in the settings. The same story is with the Product List widget. If you want to show the customer all the products from the category – you need the Products Loop widget. Besides showing an endless loop of products, it also allows you to switch from the grid to the list view. Just turn on the Enable layout switcher toggle.
After that, you will be able to choose the template for the secondary layout and choose the icon and title for buttons. By default, the main layout is a grid. Create a separate Archive Page template with the Products List widget on it to use for a secondary layout.
If there are lots of products in your shop, they should be naturally paginated. This widget adds the controls that allow the customer to go to the next or previous page. In the Content menu tab, you can choose the icon of the button and give it a title. In the Style tab, you will be able to change the button’s appearance.
Be aware that this widget will work only with the main Query objects. Those are widgets that work directly with the WooCommerce settings, such as Products Loop and other Elementor widgets that have a current query option. It is also compatible with Products Grid and Products List but only if they have Use Current Query toggle turned on.
There is a number of notifications that a WooCommerce shop could show to the user. This widget displays those messages on your custom shop page.
This widget allows you to add sorting options to your shop page. The products can be sorted by popularity, average rating, the latest added items, and price. Clients choose the type of filter in the drop-down menu, and you can define the design of the sorting element.
Products Page Title
As was said previously, the shop template is applied to a product category page. This widget displays the title of that category page. In the Content menu tab, you can choose the HTML tag for the title.
This widget is almost the same as the Products Navigation. It also lets users surf through the pages of your product listing. And it works with the main query object only as well. The difference is that this widget shows not only the control buttons but also the number of pages, which could be really convenient.
Products Results Count
It is strongly recommended to use this widget with the Products Ordering. It shows how many of the filtering results are shown on the page. In the Style tab, you can change the color of the text, its typography, and alignment.
4 Step — Assign the template
When you are done with filling the layout and designing it, click the “Publish” button and go back to the WordPress Dashboard. Navigate to WooCommerce > Settings and open the Jet Woo Builder tab. In the Shop Template drop-down menu, choose the title of the template you’ve created, and click the “Save Changes” button.
That’s all! Enrich a Shop page template with the content using an abundance of customization widgets. Be sure your visitors and prospects enjoy the looks of your shop page.
