To display multiple products, we will need to create a new page. We can create a new page easily from our WordPress dashboard. So, head over to the Page section, and click on Add New.
After that, give a new name to the new page. This time I’m giving it the Quick Order Form. Now, add this shortcode to your page – [product_table]. You can paste this shortcode into the text format.
This shortcode will display multiple products on a single page with additional information and options. Make sure that this is present. Otherwise, it will not work correctly.
Step 5. View the Quick Order Form Page
We have created a new page and added the shortcode to show various products. Now, it’s time to check whether it is working fine or not. To check this, we will need to Save the Draft or Publish the Page.
After publishing the page, click on View. It will now send you to a page you just created. As you can see, I had created the quick order form, and it is now visible. You can also see many products on one page. Currently, it is showing only five products on one page.
We will configure it later in the article. As of now, we have created and displayed multiple products on one page. Still, a few changes are remaining to make the table or form more attractive.
Step 6. Additional Settings
To make the quick order form more attractive and presentable, we will make some changes now. The product table displays a little information about the products. It shows four columns, including Product Name, Description, Price, and the Add to Cart button.
So, head over to the Woosuite Submenu and click on the Addons option. In the Addons section, search for the product table and click on the Manage button. After clicking on it, it will redirect you to a new page. The new page will contain a few different sections, and each section will include varied settings.
There you will find multiple options and settings. But we don’t need to configure all the options. Some settings are developed for specific situations only.
So, I’ll only be talking about some of the settings present on the page. These settings are important to display multiple products on one page appealingly.
Order Form Settings:
Shop Page: This option states whether you want to display the product table on the shop page or not. You can toggle this on if you want to; otherwise, don’t change. It.
Category Page: This option specifies whether you want to display the product table on the category pages or not. You can turn this on if you wish. If you toggle this on, it will show the product table on all categories published on your site. It doesn’t matter how many categories you have created.
Order Form Information Settings:
Columns: This setting refers to the columns you want to add to the quick order form. You will find the Product Name, Description, Price, and the Add to Cart button by default. You can add more columns like stock quantity, image, reviews, short description, and more.
You can easily add columns you want to show in the product table by selecting them from the drop-down list. The available columns are SKU, ID, name, description, short description, date, categories, tags, image, reviews, stock, weight, dimensions, price, add-to-cart, and button.
Currently, I’m selecting seven columns to display on the table. It includes – Product Name, Description, Price, Add to Cart button, Stock, Image, and Reviews. You can choose according to your preferences.
Image: You can also change the image size according to your theme photos size. By default, it would be 70×50. I’m not modifying it because this size suits well in the product table.
Image Lightbox: You can enable this option if you want images to show in the lightbox. For instance, when a visitor clicks on the image, the image will be displayed in a large popup. You can enable this if you want. This will help customers to see products from different angles.
Description Length: If you have added the Description column to the product table. Then, you can also control the description length. This plugin lets you also set the description limit. For instance, adding 15 will only show the first 15 characters of the description in the table. You can enter -1 to display the full description.
Bulk Add to Cart Settings:
Add to Cart Button Display: By default, it would be Button only. However, you have to select it for Checkboxes Only. After that, it will start showing the checkbox alongside all products in the product table. The position of the checkbox will depend on your theme design.
Quantities: This option will allow users to change the quantity before adding the products to the shopping cart. If you want to offer this choice, you can toggle it on by clicking on it. However, if you turn off this option, users can only modify the quantity by going to the cart. This increases one step in the whole buying process.
Lazy Load: This option states that it will load one product at one time. In simpler terms, lazyload means the system will load images slowly and take more time than before. This will help your website load faster and improve the user experience.
Note: Don’t enable this if you have already enabled the lazy load feature in the cache plugin. Otherwise, it can cause issues and break the site.
Rows Per Page: In this setting, add the rows you want to display on one page. For example, if I want to show five rows in the product table, I will keep it five.
So, these are some of the basic settings. Make sure to cross-check your setting with the screenshots attached above. Read the next step to know how to customize the product table or quick order form fully.
Step 7. Customize the Product Table Or Quick Order Form

The Design section will contain different settings. From there, you can design your quick order form with a few taps. However, to get those additional settings, you have to set the Design option to Custom.
You will see options like Border Outer, Border Header, Border Cell, and many more. From there, you can modify the color, font type, font size, and much more. This will help you make your quick order form more stunning.
