Allow shortcodes in product excerpts

Posted on

Add code to your child theme’s functions.php file or via a plugin that allows custom functions to be added, such as the Code snippets plugin. Avoid adding custom code directly to your parent theme’s functions.php file as this will be wiped entirely when you update the theme.

/**
* Allow shortcodes in product excerpts
*/
if (!function_exists('woocommerce_template_single_excerpt')) {
function woocommerce_template_single_excerpt( $post ) {
global $post;
if ($post->post_excerpt) echo '<div itemprop="description">' . do_shortcode(wpautop(wptexturize($post->post_excerpt))) . '</div>';
}
}
