See an explanation of how to use WooCommerce Catalogue Mode with WooCustomizer

November 20, 2019

To turn on full Catalogue Mode for your WooCommerce store you need to navigate to WooCommerce -> WooCustomizer -> Catalogue Mode in your WordPress Dashboard and then Enable Catalogue Mode.

Once that is on and you’ve clicked Save Settings, you then need to go to Customize -> WooCustomizer -> WC Catalogue Mode.

First, choose if you would like to apply the Catalogue Mode settings to All Products or only to Selected Products.

If you choose selected product, you will then get extra option to enter the ID’s of the products you’d like to apply the Catalogue Mode settings to, as well as an extra setting to Show Product ID’s for Administrators.

This will display the product ID on the front-end of the website, but it will only display for the Admin user… This is so you can easily get the product ID if you need to, at any time for any reason.

You can then easily enter each ID of the products you want to apply the Catalogue Mode settings to.

You enter each ID in as a comma (,) separated list.

Eg: 38, 40, 41
