WooCommerce: Change Product Permalinks @ Shop / Loop Pages

A BloomerArmada fan asked me a very interesting question: how can I link each product in the shop page to its own custom landing page as opposed to the default permalink?

Of course this applies when you don’t want to use the default single product page for all or some products. Clearly, you could set up a 301 redirect from the single product page to the landing page – that will help for SEO as well. But if this is temporary, or you need to still give access to the single product page later on, then a redirect is no good.

So, here’s how you can override the default permalink.

WooCommerce: Hide a Category from [product_categories] Shortcode

Sometimes solutions are very simple, and you don’t need rocket science to fix your issue!

A client of mine needed to hide a category from the Product Categories Shortcode (“product_categories”); in fact, there is no parameter that allows you to “exclude” a given product category such as “uncategorized” or whatever category you wish.

A rare issue, but once again a quick fix! Here’s how you do it.
