Setting up Sydney Pro

Loking into the core code, this shortcode supports category filtering. You’ll need to use this format:

[recent_products per_page="12" columns="3" category="dresses"]

Specify the product category slug in the category attribute. For multiple categories, use comma separator.

[recent_products per_page="12" columns="3" category="dresses,pants"]


Incredible! Thank you it works!

If I want to change the text on my woocommerce button fro ‘read me’ to ‘buy’ is that difficult?

You can change that default button text label with this PHP code:

function sydney_child_woocommerce_button($btn_text) {
  if($btn_text == 'Read more') {
    return __('Buy', 'sydney');

  return $btn_text;

add_filter('woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'sydney_child_woocommerce_button');

To apply it to your site, you can add it to your child theme’s functions.php file, of course if you have run it. If you haven’t run yet, you can use the functionality plugin like Code Snippets.
