    Hey Sean,

    I’d like my EDD product category pages to display products like the shop page. However I was unable to find a template for outputting the product category pages. Does that exist? The link below is what it looks like on my demo site:

    Hey, Jeremiah.

    Just so you know I’m working on this right now. After looking deeper into it, I don’t think this is a feature I want to add directly to the dashboard but instead just do a write-up on how to do it. It’ll be simple. I’m just trying to work out some query details and then I’ll let you know how to implement it on your site.

    Just a heads up… I’ve got the categories rockin’. Looks like I missed that when integrating EDD so thanks for catching it. Using the category templates will take absolutely no effort. Just hit the URL and they’ll display like the store front. There are a few more tweaks I want to make before pushing the update out and I’ll be making those tweaks tomorrow. So be on the look out for an update.

    Alright! I pushed an update out that’ll be the first draft of handling categories AND tags for downloads. Again, I shouldn’t have left that out in the first place so thanks again.

    Here’s a thorough explanation of what I’ve done with this update. http://support.volatylthemes.com/volatyl-edd-update-1222/

    Let me know if you have any issues.

    Wonderful! Originally, I was going to add hooks to the store templates but I decided against it since their entire markup structure is available directly through the template files. So really, there’s no point. All of the other theme hooks are hidden in the core files accessing areas of the HTML structure that can’t be seen in the basic template files. So of course hooks are needed for those areas.

    So hack away at your store template files! For some reason, I’m having trouble gaining control over how many category/tag downloads are displayed per page (instead of pulling straight from your WP settings). So that’ll be the next step. For now, though, everything should be solid!
