Built with WordPress

Total output control

The admin has complete control on the plugin output with fully customisable templates and dozens of shortcodes.

The catalog items can be categorized with hierarchical categories.

Catalog X as full of WordPress hooks is extremely customizable and extensible.

User Friendly Design

Modularity Philosophy

Display Items with a Shortcode

Use the shortcode to show items whenever needed on the website. Just paste on any page: [show_products] and watch all items in place of the shortcode.

Installation

Mindestanforderungen

  • WordPress 3.5 or greater
  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater

Automatische Installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of impleCode Catalog X, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “Catalog X” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found Catalog X plugin you can view details about it such as the the rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

Manuelle Installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our item catalog plugin and uploading it to your web-server via your favourite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

Upgrading

Die automatischen Updates sollten ohne Probleme ablaufen; aber wie immer: Stelle sicher, dass du vorher ein Backup gemacht hast – nur für den Fall…

If on the off-chance you do encounter issues with the plugin pages after an update you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ’save‘. That should return things to normal.

FAQ

What is the difference between Catalog X and eCommerce Product Catalog?

Catalog X is a simple and extensible base on which you can built your deeply customized product catalog, services list, portfolio etc. It has only basic features. While developing eCommerce Product Catalog we realized that many users are trying to disable some functionality because they don’t need it. That’s why we came up with Catalog X which can be extended but it doesn’t force any functionality.

Catalog X and eCommerce Product Catalog share the same base so you can switch between them without loosing configuration, products and categories.

I am very impressed with the design and functionality of this plugin. I have a client who needed to display conveyor products in many different categories, but without any ecommerce necessary. Product Catalog X fit the bill perfectly. After some CSS to hide the sidebar (thanks Elegant Themes blog) completely, I was able to display products on the full canvas of the theme. There are some advanced features here too, like the magnifying hover that you often see if high-end ecommerce shopping experiences, the scale on click (thumbnail acting as button) that is a nice UX touch, and more. Creating new products and categorizing them is a breeze. Click paths are rational and include breadcrumbs and Back to Products link/button at the bottom. Customized with CSS, the products section fits the rest of the site design really well. Also, no crashes. Kudos to the team!

The catalog is great. I'm missing a parent item solution to sort for manufacturers in the base/ free version. Addon "attribute table" dosn't refresh if you add more attributes (delete and add the product item new). You need to add some empty attributes to cope with later changes. Existing attributes will be refreshed if you change them.

Lo uso per caricare directories, archivi e cataloghi di vario genere. Lavorando un po' sui CSS si può ottenere una personalizzazione dei temi più adatta al template utilizzato in WP. I use it to load directories, archives and catalogs of various kinds. Working a little on CSS you can get a customization of the most suitable themes for the template used in WP.

Hi, I am a WP Newbie and I am trying to create a catalogue of training courses. I would like users to be able to select "favorites" and then have a sidebar with favorites displayed when they fill out the contact form. Can I achieve this with this plugin and maybe an additional plugin? Many thanks for your feedback.
