Is the plugin compatible with Gutenberg?

All of Barn2's WordPress plugins are compatible with Gutenberg, WordPress' new editor. Here are full instructions on how to use them in your Gutenberg blocks.

WooCommerce Product Table

If you're using WooCommerce Product Table with Gutenberg then we have provided a free add-on which adds a 'Product Table' Gutenberg block. You can download this for free from wordpress.org.

Displaying content created with Gutenberg within the posts table

You can use Posts Table Pro to list blog posts or other content types in a table layout. The table can include a 'content' column, which displays the main content of your posts. This is what happens if you have created this content using Gutenberg:

  • If you enable the shortcodes option in Posts Table Pro, then the correct layout of your Gutenberg blocks will be displayed in the content column of the table (see image 1, below).
  • If you disable the shortcodes option in Posts Table Pro, then Posts Table Pro will strip out the Gutenberg blocks and combine all the page content as plain text (see image 2, below).

WooCommerce Private Store

WooCommerce Private Store hides all the pages created by WooCommerce from public view, regardless of how you set them up. It hides your main shop page, categories, products, etc.

You can add the WooCommerce Private Store login shortcode to a Gutenberg block. Simply add the [store_login] shortcode to a 'Shortcode' or 'Paragraph' block. This will add a password entry form to that section of the page.

WooCommerce Protected Categories

WooCommerce Protected Categories restricts access to specific category pages and their products, whether or not you have created the layouts using Gutenberg.

You can add the category login shortcode to a Gutenberg block. Simply add the [category_login] shortcode to a 'Shortcode' or 'Paragraph' block. This will add a password entry form to that section of the page. When visitors enter the correct password for a category, they will be redirected to that category page.
