WooCommerce PDF Catalog Shortcodes

Shortcodes Viewed: 1565

In total there are 2 shortcodes you can use:

1. Full catalog Export Shortcode

[pdf_catalog category="full" text="Full Catalog (PDF)"]

2. Specific product category

[pdf_catalog category=9 text="Clothing Category (PDF)"]

A Widget is not supported. But you can use the shortcode in a Widget. You only need a plugin, that adds shortcode support for widgets.

    1. Hi Ronald,

      on each product category page of WooCommerce you can find the buttons to export. If you can not find them go to Plugin settings and make sure both buttons are enabled. If still not showing change the button position within our plugin settings.

  4. Hi there!
    We instaled PDF catalog plugin. We made some adjustments to avoid error at exporting. (we changed DIV for Tables). Everything works ok, but we can not find the link to download the full catalog… Can you help us please? Thanks in advance!

  5. Is it possible to indicate the current category? not indicate the desired ID category.

    Something like
    [pdf_catalog category="current" text="Download Category PDF"]

    Regards.

    1. Hi Daniel,

      our plugin automatically creates a button on WooCommerce categories if this is what you are looking for.

      1. I know (and test it) but I want to add in one sidebar and, if it is possible, we want that the button display automatically the category id we are viewing. With your shortcode example is necesary to put one category ID.

  6. This is more a suggestion… is it possible to have a shortcode that can be added to a product page to download ONLY that product? That way you could download something similar to a PDF Datasheet of a product.

    Something like [pdf_catalog product="" text="Product Datasheet (PDF)"] (if Product=”” empty use current ID if not, use the ID of the product so you can show it somewhere else).

  7. Hello,

    Is it possible to keep the entirety of a product together? For example, if there is a headband with 5 variations, it will list them all in one very long column and then push something into the next page all alone. So it might just say “$8.00” at the top of a page but it’s supposed to belong with the product on the previous page. Or when there are a lot of variations (and a long vertical table showing them) there is a ton of white space to the side of it where product should fill into. It would be so nice if instead of having 6 variations in one single long column, it would do 2 rows of 3 columns so everything is more balanced.

    I can send screenshots if that is easier to understand. Please help!
