TROUBLESHOOTING

Can I use a Shortcode?

Yes of course! You can use a shortcode like this:

1. Full catalog

[pdf_catalog category="full" text="Full Catalog (PDF)"]

2. Specific product category

[pdf_catalog category=9 text="Clothing Category (PDF)"]

A Widget is not supported. But you can use the shortcode in a Widget. You only need a plugin, that adds shortcode support for widgets.


I only get strange signs

If you get something like %PDF-1.4 %���� then please make sure you have installed the following PHP extensions

  • mbstring
  • gd

Where can I find the PDF Catalog settings?

You can find the everything inside your Admin Panel below WooCommerce -> PDF Catalog
