    Utilizing the Jkreativ Landing Page Builder, I seem to recall previously being able to choose a custom category for the Latest Product Slider. I’m attempting to do the same with the newly implemented Visual Composer but am at a loss as to how to accomplish the same. Ideally, the slider would show products from a custom category, such as “Featured Items”, instead of simply showing the last products dumped into woocommerce. How can I go about doing so? Thanks!

    Hello,

    At the moment Product Slide for VC is showing for latest products. You can still use shortcode from Section Builder with VC by using Text Block element and generate your Product slider there.

    Thank you

    Doing a bit of research I found that woocommerce has built-in shortcode that should achieve my desired result. However, the shortcode doesn’t seem to display properly within the theme. Has anyone, by chance, inquired about the following shortcode before?

    [featured_products per_page="4" columns="4" orderby="date" order="desc"]

    The result is a vertical alignment of the 4 products (instead of horizontal) with a pricing overlay of the last item which spans all in the vertical alignment.

    Actually, Jkreativ doesn’t support woocommerce shortcode officially, because we think we need to have different style so we create custom shortcode to display product.

    Have you tried the Latest Product shortcode using Shortcode Generator as I mentioned above? The shortcode will looks like this:
    [product-slider number="8" column="4" image_dimension="1" filter_category="46,48"]

    Thank you

    Hello, product-slider is ok but what if we want to display specific products? Ex Related products per article!

    Hi @ghapsis,

    Sorry, if my partner is quite rude, but his point is good to make this forum more organized and make other user easier to find solution if they have same issue.

    I know your issue is related to product shortcode but it seems has different point which is has different solution. So, it would be great if you post on new topic to focus on solving your problem.

    Kind regards,
    Rai

    Is there a way to sort the items listed in the product slider by price, ascending or descending? Also, the slider seems to pull from large images and then resize, is it possible to use thumbnails or smaller images to reduce load times?

    Hi Gator,

    Try to follow this image below to achieve that and choose Products on top navigation :

    Try to reduce your image size, because at the moment we don’t have those kind of feature.

    Thank you
