Product Description

The WooCommerce Nested Category Layout plugin allows you to show products organized by sub-category on the shop and catalog pages. By breaking products up by subcategory, this plugin provides a much more intuitive and attractive catalog layout that your customers will appreciate, as you can see in the before and after shots:


  • Increase customer satisfaction and sales with an intuitive layout that separates products by subcategory
  • Select which category pages to alter, and which to render as normal
  • Easily configure the number of products per subcategory to display
  • Known compatibility with WooCommerce Themes and the Genesis Framework
  • Flexible, overrideable architecture allows customization and support for additional themes and frameworks


After installing and activating WooCommerce Nested Category Layout, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products and and scroll down to “Catalog Pages by Category”. Select the pages/categories on which to enable the plugin:


Test out the plugin in WooCommerce Nested Category Layout Demo Shop


  • Due to implementation constraints, this plugin may cause out of memory errors if enabled on category pages with many (hundreds) of products, depending on your particular hardware and server configuration

    This plugin is great. However, it would be AMAZING if there were a way to make the layouts nested on attribute pages as well. Is there any way to accomplish something like this?

    To clarify my last request, this plugin makes the product categories nested but doesn’t nest the archive pages for other taxonomies such as product attributes. To be honest, I am not even sure this would be possible or makes any sense as it appears that the taxonomy must be hierarchical for the nested layout to work. I may be requesting something silly.

    What it comes down to is the fact that I love the nested layout so much I want it in all these other places on my site.

    Cool plugin but it’s not compatible with “WooCommerce Advanced Ajax Layered Navigation”

      Hey Mat, it now should be with version 1.2.5!

    Well, I took a gamble purchasing this for a site with over a thousand products, as your disclaimer clearly states there might be problems with stores that have more than a few hundred products.

    It does indeed crash the site with out-of-memory errors, even when available memory is increased to 256M (!!).

    This seems very cool, and it’s something several other clients of mine have been asking for for ages – but I’m concerned about recommending it and then having it fail on their sites, too.

    Do you have any ideas to diagnose exactly what will be problematic for this plugin, so we can get a better idea of whether or not it will work before spending $79 on it?

    In theory, it’s a dream come true – I just wish I could get it working in practice. The sad thing is, it’s the sites with the most products that are the most in need of this plugin!
