Shopr: How to display products

The information on this page relates to our Shopr WordPress plugin.

Before getting started, you should import some demo products or add some of your own product links.

Now that there are some products available in your shop, you can display them on your site using 3 different features:

This will display a carousel of products in any widget area. You can add this feature from the Appearance > Widgets section of your dashboard.

You can place the widget in any widget section of your theme. When doing so, look for the “Shopr Carousel” widget and drag it into your position of choice:

After placing the widget, you will be able to select a product Collection to display. The widget will then display products which you have added to that Collection.

The widget also includes some extra, optional settings:

Shopstyle List ID – If you use www.shopstylecollective.com you can add a List ID here to automatically display those products

rewardStyle Widget ID – If you use www.rewardstyle.com you can add a widget ID from a “Boutique” or “Shop the post” shortcode. This will display products from those widgets automatically.

You can read more about the Shopr Carousel widget on this page.

2. “Shop the post” features

You can also add the same type of product carousel to any blog post like this example. Simply click the “Shopr” option in the post editor and you will be shown some options to display products from a Collection.

You can read more about this feature in this guide.

3. The [shopr] Shortcode

You can add the [shopr] shortcode to any post/page to display a grid of products. If you want to change the options from the default layout/settings, you may wish to generate a more advanced shortcode by going to the Shopr > Shortcode Generator page.

You can also change the appearance of the Shopr page from the “Shopr” tab within the Customizer.

It is also possible to display products from a single collection throughout a blog post. This post shows an example of 3 different shortcodes used to display collections. For example, the following shortcode would display all products in the “Dresses” collection:

    Hi Phil
    I love the SHOPR plugin. However my pictures turn out really small.
    http://www.eveoaks.com/shop/
    Am I doing something wrong? I would like to have to bigger like normal products images ratio.
    Thank you!

      Hi Eva, glad you like the plugin! It looks like you’re using a “shop the post” feature on that page. However it probably makes more sense to setup the page via this guide instead. Let me know if that works better for you or if you had any other questions.

    Hello! Does this product come with your WordPress templates? Or is it an add-on?

    Hi Phil,
    I am on my mobile in WordPress app and cannot see the Shopr option in the post drafting menu. I do see that the Shopr plugin shows as Active Plugins within my profile. Please advise, thanks!

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Jazmin, you’ll need to log in your WordPress dashboard to use all of the editing options available. Only WordPress.com editing options will show within their app.

    Hi – when I try to use the shortcode it only shows one column instead of a grid. Is there any way to fix this? Thanks.

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Alicia, we just pushed update 1.8.0 of the plugin which should fix this. Please let me know if you’re still experiencing the same thing after updating πŸ™‚

        HI Phil, for some reason version 1.6.1 is still showing as my current version. I tried checking for updates but it’s telling me the plug-in is up-to-date.

        1. Phil (pipdig)

          Is the plugin activated by going to ‘Shopr > Settings?’

            1. Phil (pipdig)

              It sounds like your host might be blocking the automatic update feature. Unfortunately this means you will need to update the plugin manually. You can do that by uninstalling the plugin and downloading it again from your email receipt. The download from the email receipt will always be the most recent version.

    hello, can someone help me on how I can get the tags to be on the page? I’ve tried everything and nothing is working for me.

  6. Ana

    Hey Phil!
    Is there a way to arrange the order of the items that are displayed on a “shop the post! widget”?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Ana, you can re-order products via this guide. The other option would be to change the published date of the products. By default, the newest products will show first.

    Hi, This is a great app and I have now purchased it. Highly recommend. 1 question. Do I need to add each product individually into a collection first, before uploading to a grid on the Shop Page? I am using shopstyle collective. Or is there an easier way? Thanks!

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Ava, glad you like it!

      It is possible to display a “List” from Shopstyle Collective automatically. So then you would just need to add the products via your Shopstyle Collective dashboard and they would automatically appear on your blog’s shop page. For example, when searching for products in Shopstyle you can click the “Add to list” button. Once you’ve added all your products, copy the List ID, then add this to the Shopr shortcode like this example:

      [shopr shopstyle=”123123123″]

      We’re about to publish a new guide with more information about this. Until then, I’ve uploaded a quick guide to https://pastebin.com/raw/6LpnHy0a for you.

      1. Ava

        Thanks Phil!! This is so helpful. Although does that mean if you are with more than one affiliate program, you will be unable to display these as well via the dashboard in the Shop Page? If you opt for the List option.

        1. Phil (pipdig)

          You can mix products from a Shopstyle List and also from Shopr. For example:

          [shopr_shopthepost collection=”shoes” shopstyle=”1231231″]

          This would display products from the “Shoes” collection, and also the Shopstyle List ID 1231231.

    Hi, I have several rows of images in my shop page, but from about the third row down the images are all overlapping each other. Why is this happening? The first couple of rows are spaced out fine. Thanks πŸ™‚

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Sarah, it looks like you’re using some kind of “minification” plugin on your site to minify the html/css/javascript. If you try deactivating that temporarily does it fix those images?

      1. Sarah Grimwood

        Ahhh yes – it was LazyLoad causing it. Have deactivated and all is now well! Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

    Hi, when I got to add my products by clicking the β€œShopr” option in the post editor, I just get a bunch of images of the products in my post. There is no carousel. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Bree, how many products are published in the Collection that you’ve chosen? If it is less than 5 then the images will display as static images.

    HI Phil,
    I want to add a collection to my blog post but not put it in my shop my wardrobe tab… how do I do this please?

    thanks

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Sophie, you can add an “exclude_collection” attribute to the [shopr] shortcode. Then the collection won’t be shown. For example, if you did not want to show the “Blue Dresses” collection you would set the shortcode as:

      [shopr exclude_collection=”blue-dresses”]

  11. Cherry Newby

    Hi Phil – that didn’t seem to work. Instead what it did was keep the collections tab section and then also pulled through every collection rather than just the one I was trying to show! Can you help further?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hey Cherry, we’ve actually just launched version 1.3.0 of the plugin which may fix this for you. Please go ahead and update to see if that helps. If not, let me know and I’ll be happy to log in and take a look at this on your site for you πŸ™‚

  12. Cherry Newby

    Hi – when I try to use the shortcode to display a gallery of images in my post, it says that in the customiser that I can remove the collections tab – however even when I untick this in the customiser it doesn’t remove from the post! Can you help me fix this?

    1. Phil (pipdig)

      Hi Cherry, if you add filters=’no’ to the shortcode then it will force the tabs to be hidden. So your shortcode would look something like this:

      [shopr collection=’collection-name-here’ filters=’no’]

      Let me know if that works for you πŸ™‚
