Is there a way to get a simple alphabetical list of the categories? I’ve got a simple text widget using [wp_eStore_list_categories]. I’ve tried adding the order command you use in other shortcodes, but that doesn’t seem to do anything. (okay…it’s probably stupid, but I tried!: Can’t find anything in the shortcode or extra shortcode that seems to handle the order of the category list, just the order of the products in a list.

Modified that shortcode so it can take another argument to specify the sort order of the category list that is displays. You will need to get an updated build of the extra eStore shortcodes plugin.
You can then use the following shortcode which allows you to short the category list:
[wp_eStore_list_categories count=false order=1]
You can modify “order=1” parameter to customize the category display order. You can use one of the following values for the “order” parameter:
1: Sort by Category ID in ascending order
2: Sort by Category ID in descending order
3: Sort by Category name (a-z)
4: Sort by Category name (z-a)
So the following shortcode will display a list of categories sorted by category name:

I tried thus short code, and all I got was the short code displayed.
Additionally, is there a way to list only the description of the category? I get the category name printed twice using:
I love the product, but with as many products as we have, category lists will be great.January 9, 2014 at 3:26 pm #42282wzpModerator
The [wp_eStore_list_categories] shortcode requires the Extra eStore Shortcodes addon.
Here are some threads that may give you some ideas on how to manage product categorization:March 26, 2014 at 2:14 pm #42283BeckyMember
I am using [wp_eStore_category_products_fancy id=14 style=10, order=3] where the 14 is the caps and hats category on the page [http://creativeheadwear.com/caps/]. This should list all of the fleece caps and hats products I have, so that is a large list. I notice that the entries are not displayed in the order of the description. There must be a limit set somewhere in the code that I could increase.
This works perfectly when the number of products is smaller as in [http://creativeheadwear.com/caps-newborn/]
Could you please let me know where I may increase that quantity limit?

When you have a lot of products, it will add pagination at the bottom of the list. Your visitors can click on the page number to go to the next page.
Go to the settings menu and adjust the pagination number using the following field:
Products Per Page Limit
