Updated on January 11, 2018

The Shop archive is an accumulation of all products. It contains all the product posts in one place.

In this article we will explain how to access the Shop archive and its settings. If you are looking to create a shop you should also check out the creating a product post and displaying product posts articles.

Configuring the Shop Archive

Archives are special auto generated pages in WordPress which show a list of posts. There are limited options in Ken to configure this auto generated page. We instead recommend that you add a page and use the Product Shortcode to generate a more configurable archive page for your shop page.

To access the product archive settings:

1From the WordPress left menu, go to Theme Settings > Woocommerce.
