* This code should be added to functions.php of your theme
add_filter( 'parse_query', 'custom_parse_query' );
function custom_parse_query( $q ) {
if ( !$q->is_post_type_archive() ) return;
$q->set( 'tax_query', array(array(
'taxonomy' => 'product_cat',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => array( 'tshirts' ),
'operator' => 'NOT IN'
remove_filter( 'parse_query', 'custom_parse_query' );

I tried it, but doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Fraid not. Should work. Did you get the slug right? Post on our forum if you're stuck;

It works! but it excludes all the products of the selected category from the back-end too! any idea?!

Try adding an if (!is_admin) query around the remove_filter line.

fffffast! it works! but i've to put the '!is_admin' query around the whole function: if (!is_admin()){....}
Thanks for your help jameskoster!

I'm sorry if I write directly to you but woocommerce forum is down as you
know! :-(
We like very much woocommerce and we used it in many website in only few
months, but now we're trying to integrate it in old theme templates.
We don't succeed to integrate it in no-one theme.
For example we've tried to integrate it in BURO theme (not child version
with woocommerce) but the commerce's pages structure are completely
Is woocommerce compatible with all wordpress themes or not?
Is there a guide line to follow in order to integrate it?

This does work, but when I use the Product Category Shortocde [product_category category="test-category-name" per_page="9" columns="3" orderby="date" order="desc"]

The Products from the specified category do NOT list, instead products from another category display, without pagination ..

Any ideas?

thank you
