Page Listing Categories

Lets you list the categories of your wordpress website on any page, entry sidebar or footer.

Page Listing Categories is a free WordPress plugin that gives you the ability to easily, efficiently and selectively display the product categories of your WooCommerce.

Page Listing categories also allows you to display your categories in any post or page using a simple shortcode, but that's not all; it also provides you with a widget so you can display them as a menu in any footer or sidebar. When displaying the categories Page Listing Categories offers you different options of filtering so that you can list the data that you want how you want and where you want.

Either in the shortcode or in the widget, you can set the order of categories (ascending or descending) based on an ID, Name, Slug, Count, or a term group.

You can also hide empty categories, choose whether to show subcategories or not and even exclude one or more.
