Goods Catalog

Codacy Badge Build Status

Goods Catalog provides a catalog of products organized into categories. It is easy to use and fully customizable. Goods Catalog was created to help you organize a simple catalog of products on WordPress site.

Main features

  • Unlimited categories of products with unlimited depth of subcategories
  • Tumbnails for categories and products
  • The separate sidebar for the catalog, to show different widgets on the catalog and other pages.
  • Shortcodes
  • Widgets

The catalog created with Goods Catalog is easy to navigate: at the main catalog page are located all parent categories of products, at the category page firstly are located subcategories and then products of the category.


  • Use shortcode [goods_newest] to display the newest products anywhere in the site: on post or page. For example, to show 6 products, type: [goods_newest number=6]
  • [goods_categories] to display the list of goods categories (many thanks to Alexander Chizhov & Pineapple Design Studio)
  • [goods_tags] to display list of all products' tags
  • [goods_sitemap] to display sitemap of the catalog (testing mode). Usage: [goods_sitemap include_category=55,54 orderby=include]
  • [goods_term] to display category or tag by ID. Usage: [goods_term goods_category|goods_tag id=X], ex.: [goods_term goods_category id=3] to display category with ID=3, or [goods_term goods_tag id=5] to display tag with ID=5. It only displays title with link and description, without image.


Goods Catalog is ready for localization to your language. Now it is available in the following languages:

  • English
  • Russian
  • Spanish (thanks to netsis)
  • French (thanks to Bertrand)
  • Italian (thanks to Massimo Gallarotti)

You can send me translation for your language, and I'll add it to the release.

How to customize title meta tag on catalog or category page?

The simpliest way is to use some SEO plugins that allow to customize titles: ex., WordPress SEO by Yoast or All in One SEO Pack.

Or you can manually change your theme's header.php (see here).

Another option is to change the plugin files see the discussion here. It is not recommended: you will lose the changes after the plugin update.

How can I enable or disable the comments for catalog entries?

Since the version 1.0.0 comments comments are enabled by default. You can disable them globally in WordPress Admin settings (at Discussion tab), or you can use third-part plugins to make comments available only for some post types, for example Disable Comments Plugin.

How can I separate comments to products and posts in the Admin Panel?

You can use my plugin Comments by Post Type for that.
