While working on my security camera e-commerce website, Smart Security Cameras, I wanted to show site visitors the number of products within each Category/Brand of the shop (e.g. Samsung, Samsung Techwin, Botch, etc.).
I assumed this would involve custom development of WP E-Commerce to acheive this but thankfully this feature is included within 188.8.131.52 but as yet has no method of enabling it from the WordPress Administration. Time to change that.
- Open your WordPress database within phpMyAdmin
- Explore the
wp_optionstable and click Insert to insert a new table row
- Click Go to enable Category/Brand Count within the Product Categories widget
That’s it, refresh your website and you should now see the Product Categories widget list prefixed by category count.
