Add pagination support for list of products rendered by shortcodes like product_category
When using a shortcode like
[productcategory category="" perpage="12" columns="4" orderby="date" order="desc"]
to display products, only a fixed number of products appear as set by 'per_page' attribute and there's no way to see the remaining ones. Currently the only way is to set that to a big number like say, 500 to show all the products - which is not an ideal solution.
It will be really helpful to have pagination for the products list rendered by WooCommerce shortcodes.
Requests from other users for the same in the past:
Archives should be used for proper pagination. Shortcodes are for static output – adding pagination for this kills the ability to use static caching, requires extra queries and can hurt performance.
Extensions can add pagination if desired, or custom shortcodes can be made (and based on the core ones).
Is there any method yet i also want to add pagination in short code generated page
I thought this very thing and searched finding this post...but then it dawned on me...there is already pagination built into the pages for the product categories. so all you need to do is update your menu with product category link from woo commerce, and your items will fill in automatically with pagination. Right now though, i'm left with finding where to up the default 10 products per page in that pagination...i'd like at least 12 so that an even 4 per line will appear on the page...
Would it matter bc most themes I've used the shortcodes in won't show woo widgets on those regular pages. The woo widgets show on the dedicated shop pg but then the sidebars are often awkwardly displaced at the bottom. This should have nothing to do with integrating the theme. I'm not talking about products in post format. Anyone else experience this? Seems buggy.
Chip life, DW minion, Inline, Virtue, Omega, Shopping, Wu Wei, M1, Virtue.
This plugin is a hassle. The bottom line is buy a wootheme when I shouldn't even have to theme hunt making my site rely on the store's theme.

Please consider this pagination in next update. Clients expect it.

Hectic that something so needed can just be ignored - causing me to have to go through hours of looking for a solution!

This is very important to have. A big disappointment that some so vital to a webshop is not supported at this moment
Totally agree, is there someone who manage to solved this?
Same here, we need thing!
This would improve things so much.
