Create a New Product WooComerce Category

Step 1: Move to Products >>> CategoriesAnd this is “Product Categories“ configuration, it looks like “Post’s Categories” configuration as well. The only difference is that there are additional elements such as thumbnail upload form and display type.

OK.. At this time, it’s up to you to create categories, to demo, I just created two categories, which were Laptop and Mobile. Type of both categories display was set to be default and have no images yet

Step 2: Checking the activation of categories in five steps:

  • Create new pages that you want to choose to display in the sidebar on your site.To create a new page, first, hover over Pages >>> Add new. Here I choose the default is Shop, click “Publish”

However, 2 categories that you’ve just created has not yet appeared. When you’ve installed the plugin in the Plugin WooCommerce they will have the Widgets support you. If you want the list of categories display on the homepage, you should find the appropriate widget and embed it into the selected Sidebar.

Step 3: Hover to Appearance >>> Click on Widgets. New widgets appear and this widget is prefixed WooCommerce,this is the way that helps us to distinguish WooCommerce Widgets from other Widgets. To display categories on the homepage, you need to find Widget named WooCommerce Product Categories.
