I would like to have my categories listed in two columns in my sidebar. The current shortcode that I am using is: [wp_eStore_list_categories count=true order=3]. Is there a modification that will allow that, so that my list won’t be as long?
Thanks!April 8, 2015 at 12:37 am #69480
Which page has your category list shortcode? I went to your resource page but I didn’t see that shortcode on that page.April 10, 2015 at 10:14 pm #69481
It is in my sidebar. I am using this shortcode in a widget:
[wp_eStore_list_categories count=true order=3]
Also I am wondering if there is anyway to make this widget or list scrollable? We are thinking that we will have 30ish categories and we don’t want them to be listed all the way down the page.April 11, 2015 at 2:33 am #69482
What do you mean by “scrollable”?April 12, 2015 at 7:40 pm #69483
I have added in some CSS code that has helped so that I can scroll through the categories and it limits the length of the list. See the sidebar section on this page: [http://www.raphajourney.com/resources/] It is under the section Rapha Journey Resource Areas of Interest.
What I want though is to have the scroll bar in that widget not disappear when I move my mouse off it, otherwise people don’t know to scroll there to see the other categories.
I would also like these categories listed in two columns is that possible?
Does that make sense?April 13, 2015 at 12:13 am #69484
Yep that makes sense. Thank you. The scrolling is something you add using CSS (which you have already done correctly). It doesn’t disappear when you move the mouse away. I can see the scrollbar all the time.
We can create a new shortcode that shows the category list in two columns.April 13, 2015 at 3:09 pm #69485
I have looked at this in both Chrome and Firefox and the grey scroll bar does disappear when i move my mouse away from this widget.
Can you send me the new shortcode for the two column display?May 10, 2015 at 3:41 am #69486
We have added an option to show the category list in multiple columns.
You can now use the following shortcode to show your categories in more than 1 column:
You need to upgrade your extra shortcodes addon for this new option.May 12, 2015 at 1:46 pm #69487
This is great, thank you.
I was using the following shortcode before: [wp_eStore_list_categories count=true order=3] and I would like to keep them in alphabetical order and with the count. Is there anyway to do this with the columns?
I tried a combination of these two shortcodes but nothing seemed to work.
I’m also still wondering about keeping the grey scroll bar visible even when you move the mouse away. Can you suggest some CSS code that might do that.
Thanks again!May 13, 2015 at 12:40 am #69488
Use the following to have the categories listed in an alphabetical order:
[wp_eStore_list_categories columns=”2″ count=true order=”3″]
The scrollbar is there all the time. I have check it in Google Chrome and Firefox and it stays there all the time. So this is likely an issue with your browser (not the CSS you put in).
