WooCommerce: Products Attributes in a Shortcode

Products attributes display on the single product page whenever attribute terms are assigned to a given WooCommerce product. This is the default behaviour.

However, what if you want to show the product attribute table somewhere else? For example, in a blog post, or in a custom pricing table?

Well, we can build a shortcode for that – simply specify a product ID and the shortcode will magically output its attributes. Enjoy!

I am now able to display the attributes table for product ID = 214015 on a custom page, thanks to the snippet below.

PHP Snippet: Display Product Attribute Table Anywhere Via a Shortcode

add_shortcode( 'prod_atts', 'bbloomer_show_product_atts' );
    
function bbloomer_show_product_atts( $atts ) {
   if ( ! $atts['pid'] ) return;
	$product = wc_get_product( $atts['pid'] );
	if ( ! is_a( $product, 'WC_Product' ) ) {
		return;
	}
	ob_start();
	do_action( 'woocommerce_product_additional_information', $product );
	return ob_get_clean();
}

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

  1. Hello,

    Thanks for the above, how about just getting the attribute value in the shortcode?

    Thanks

    1. Mark, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  2. Is it possible to add the product ID automatically?

    1. As long as you’re on the single product page, you could try with:

      $product = wc_get_product( get_the_ID() );
  3. Hi Rodolfo,
    Could this also made to work for a specific attribute? I want to show only two attributes in a specific place in the product page. This should not be so hard but I can’t find it. I would think that your code with a bit development should be able to show this. But I am not a coder so maybe not ๐Ÿ™‚
    Cheers

If you are writing code, please wrap it between shortcodes: [php]code_here[/php].
