Check if Product Belongs to a Product Category or Tag
Are you trying to make it work with
in_category() function but nothing happens? Well, in this tutorial you will find out why.
Actually it is a very common mistake and I also did it before.
First things first, let’s begin with the fact that products in WooCommerce are a custom post type
product and product categories are a custom taxonomy
product_cat. When you work with custom taxonomies, do you use functions for categories/tags or for taxonomies?
Comparing to is_product_category(), WooCommerce doesn’t have its own conditional tags here, so we have to use default WordPress conditional tags like
Check If Current Page is a Product Category
Are you using
is_category() and nothing works?… This tutorial is just for you then.
Please keep in mind, that product categories in WooCommerce are just a WordPress taxonomy
product_cat. It means that it is possible to use all the conditional tags related to taxonomies as well.
But let’s begin with WooCommerce conditional tags first.
trueon every product category archive page,
is_product_category( $category )– you can check if you are on a certain product category page just by passing an ID, slug or title of a category as an argument.
