I am new here ;)
I want to run jigoshop on one of my projects and came across a
couple of severe problems...especially in regard to using jigoshop
in a SEO optimized shop:
Is it possible to add custom content to jigoshop product
categories (ie. product archives)? In terms of adding SEO content
to each category, so users from google will initially land on the
product category to browse through items. I did not find a way to
achieve this: woocommerce does support some sort of short
description for product categories (which is shown above the
products), but this cannot substitute actual, comprehensive
description...possibly also custom graphics.
The workaround would be to use the wordpress theme's static page
(which yes, is 100% flexible), however, when adding in the products
from the woocommerce product category via shortcode (e.g.
[product_category category="ABC" per_page="20" columns="4"
order="desc"]), the most relevant shop functions are NOT supported,
namely: User Sorting (so by price, title and date). If the
shortcode would allow me to replicate the product category 1 to 1,
then my problems were solved...I'd simply hide the actual
woocommerce product categories and replicate them on my theme's
Please tell me there is a way to add sorting when adding in a
category's products via shortcode :D
I really like jigoshop...and if the above cannot be done easily,
I will most certainly find somebody to custom code this function
into my theme. I think in order to run a SEO optimized shop, this
function is a must.
Thanks so much for your feedback and thoughts,

I hope jigoshop can give me what I need ;)

Yep ! SEO categories are possible with this.
So I suppose no workaround necessary?
