Would it be too difficult to make a new shortcode that would make a plain text link list (like the [wp_eStore_list_categories] shortcode) to list out All of the products without thumbnails, descriptions, or buy buttons (not fancy)? It would also be extra cool if when you clicked the text link of one of the products in the list that it would take you to the URL that was specified in the “Thumbnail Target URL” of the Additional Product Details section.

For now you might want to use:
[wp_eStore_product_details id=1 info=”name”]
I know it’s not ideal because you have to have a separate line for each product (unless you write a custom loop).. plus there’s no link… but it could get you a little closer to your goal.

Thanks for the suggestion. But I have too many products to manually list them one at a time. It would be great if a list could be generated from the database. And, if it could link to the “Thumbnail Target URL” that would work perfect.
Having this same type of shortcode, but for the different categories would also be an excellent addition.October 6, 2013 at 12:31 am #58147
Hi, We control how a product is displayed using a product display template. Here is a list of available product display templates:
You can list your products (optionally from a particular category) using any of the available templates. The best way to do what you are after is to create a new product template shortcode. Now, I actually never had any request for a product template that is just a link. Can you show me an example of what you have in mind so I can visualize it better?
Creating a shortcode to just print a list of product links is not hard but I have to see the usage of it to justify the development:October 7, 2013 at 7:15 pm #58148
Because I have so many products, and I’d like to make it easy for my visitors to see a more comprehensive list of my poster designs without having to navigate so many pages looking at the fancy displays (which I love, and also use on the same website), I would love to have a shortcode that could simply generate a list of all the products in my database.
It would also be nice to be able to sort by name or number, and to have a clickable link back to the Thumbnail Target URL.
If this is developed, I believe a similar shortcode could be added to make a list of the contents of a specific category. Then, I would use the shortcodes of the categories I wanted to feature to create a nice looking “text catalog”. I have links to graphic samples of what I would like to see:
For a complete list
For a category list
I realize this might not have been asked for in the past, but I do believe it would be a nice addition to your wonderful plugin.
Thankyou for your consideration.October 8, 2013 at 12:43 am #58149wpCommerceModerator
Hi, we have updated the extra shortcode plugin to achieve something similar to what you are asking. Please do the following:
1. Install a fresh copy of the extra shortcode plugin: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-shortcodes-and-functions-reference-460
2. Display products from a particular category using fancy 9 display. For example:
[wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=9]
See the extra shortcode guide for more information: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-content/uploads/extra-eStore-shortcodes.pdf
3. Share the URL to the page where you are using the shortcode. Then I will check the page and provide further instructions on how you can show each product as a text link.October 8, 2013 at 3:57 am #58150
Thanks for giving it a try, but unfortunately that won’t work for me. I have two sets of variations, and a product description. So, the #9 display just looks jumbled. Have a look:
That is the result of using:
[wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=1 style=9]
I understand it’s probably not a priority, and that’s fine. If others haven’t been asking for it then it probably isn’t real important. I appreciate your giving it a try.October 8, 2013 at 6:52 am #58151
What you have done is good. Now grab the custom css plugin from here:
Then add the following CSS tweak there and you will see that it will produce the result you are after:

Fabulous! Just what I was looking for.
One last question. Is there a css tweak that would allow that specific list (fancy 9) to list 50 products per page? I have the products per page set to 20 (globally) in the eStore settings section – but with a list, 50 would work better.
Thank you so very much for your assistance. This is a wonderful plugin.October 9, 2013 at 12:08 am #58153
That option comes from the settings of this plugin. So you will need to update the value in the settings for it (Can’t do it via CSS).
