With Vince's help I've finally been able to get the recommend products to display via the plugin shortcode.. Now trying to create another shortcode for products in a specific category... How do I specify the category name to get it to display?

I've tried adding the category name, and number .. however haven't been able to get it to display correctly on the homepage.

Is this the new recommended categories feature?

If so, you would need to mark the category as "recommended" in your admin. It's on the quick edit drop down when viewing categories.

Hi again
You should just be able to give the category name, no? Is this the "Stock Chinks & Armitas" category that you are trying to display? Can you make sure you enter the ampersand exactly as when you defined the category. For instance, it may be...
Stock Chinks & Armitas

Correct. I just tried pasting your suggestion in the plugin admin page.. and it does not work

I've tried both:

Stock Chinks & Armitas

Stock Chinks & Armitas

Can you try with another category that doesn't have the ampersand and see if that works. If we can confirm the problem is the ampersand I can work on a fix for that. I think the login I had for wordpress on your site has changed so I couldn't try myself to confirm this is the problem.

I was able to use another category successfully.. (leather care)

I changed the the chinks and armitas category. (spelled out the word 'and' instead of using the ampersand &) still does not work.
