    It’s possible to disable “Default product sorting function?” How? Thanks!

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hi Victor,

      Rey doesn’t have a built-in functionality to disable it, however it could be doable with a code snippet you should add into rey-child/functions.php :

      remove_action( ‘woocommerce_before_shop_loop’, ‘woocommerce_catalog_ordering’, 30 );


  2. Kyung Hwa Yoo

    When I click the quick view option the images are huge (enlarged losing dps). Is there a way to fix this or remove the option

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey there! There’s an option in Customizer > WooCommerce > Product catalog – Components >> Quickview – Image fit eg: . Try selecting Contain. It should force the image to be fully visible.

    Hi Marius,

    I love your theme, but I’m very surprised by your choice to develop the woocommerce product page and catalog outside Elementor as 90% of the theme… why??
    It makes it seriously lack of customisation feature (margin control, adding shortcode etc.). And product pages are the most important part for all eshop
    Maybe for some future update, it’s something you can rethink? (integrated as a theme builder template or as a global section page)


    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey there!

      I 100% agree with you. It’s just that Rey’s product page layouts cannot be replicated easily with EPRO because i wrapped many blocks with divs, with hooks (which are not available in the theme builder) so exact replicas of them, cannot be made easily at this moment.

      Also since Elementor Pro is paid, besides adding compatibility, i wanted to make Rey’s own page template solution for those not using EPRO, so this is my main reason why i’m not yet adding this feature, because it takes a while and i want to take my time to make it right.

      Either way, i’m adding it soon.

      Thanks a lot!!

    “Customize the looks and content of the Checkout page.”

    Can’t find anything on the “looks”? The default doesn’t fit the branding.

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey Frank,

      Indeed not many customization options for the Checkout page. I decided to wait for a Cart & Checkout Elementor elements which will have customisation options.


  5. Jason Thomas Dawes

    Hi great theme, however struggling a bit with the content blocks on the product description I like the demo content with specifications shipping info etc and want to keep the same format but i want to edit the text. How do you change the text in these blocks? thanks
    website is on a temporary domain until built thanks

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey Jason,

      Aah indeed. Luckily in the upcoming version tomorrow you will be able to manage the tabs/blocks easier eg: . I’m pretty sure you’re mostly having troubles with the Specifications (Additional Information) one, which contains product attributes. Unfortunately it’s not editable and it’s autogenerated by WooCommerce, based on the attributes chosen in the product’s backend Attributes tab. I’m also planning a manageable interface for it to be able to add/remove/edit some of those rows, however in the version after this one. If you’re asking about the “Informations” block, right now, try accessing Customizer > WooCommerce > Product page – Content, and you should be able to find it there.

    I was trying to edit shop page, but it’s showing error and suggesting to use elementor pro version, could you please tell me, how can I edit shop page of wooCommerce and other related things.

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]


      Wrote an article here onto why this is happening and what alternative i suggest.

      PS: I’m working on a separate branch to implement a similar feature like Elementor Pro’s Theme Builder, but it turns out it’s way complicated than i expected so it might take a few weeks to do it and test it properly.


  7. marcos

    Hello, i love THIS DEMO… i want to buy this woocomerce Layout, but i need to know if i need to buy elementor pro…

    i will wait for you answer.

    thank u.

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey Marcos,

      Rey is not dependent on Elementor PRO, so it is not mandatory to buy it.

      However this doesn’t mean EPRO is not worthy, in fact it’s an amazing piece of software. I suggest trying Rey as it currently is, and if you feel something’s missing and EPRO has it, definitely worth buying it.

    I’ve created a page that I want to use as a shop page. However, after setting this page as a shop page (by going to Woocommerce Settings, Products, “Shop Page”) the entire look of the page is completely changed. How can I prevent this from happening and set this page to be the shop page? Thanks

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hi Chris,

      This is likely happening because the WooCommerce’s Shop page is overriding any page’s content. The WC. Shop page is an autogenerated page, which injects a product listing grid instead of the default page content.

      For the moment, having a custom built Elementor page as the Shop page, is only doable with Elementor PRO’s Theme Builder feature. I’m also working on this, but it will likely take a few weeks because it’s super complicated and i want to take my time to make it properly.


      1. Chris N.

        Thank you for your response.

        I am using Elementor Pro, is there a workaround for getting the shop page set to a custom page being that I am using the Pro version?

        1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

          Yes, sure! Just made a quick recording here . Basically just apply the condition to show on the Shop page.

    hello ,
    I need to display product category description for seo , currently description is not visible on category page.

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey Birju,

      I believe you’re using a Cover global section on product categories, otherwise the description should’ve been shown. Try to edit the Cover and inside it, add the Heading element and select Dynamic skin eg: . It will pull the description dynamically.

      You can also just disable the Cover for all product categories (Customizer > Cover > WooCommerce) or a specific product category (just edit the Product Cat. in backend).

    it is really great theme
    i would to ask about one thing
    the Quickview that is in the products catalog, i need to know which function is used for it, coz i need to reuse these in the product single page to view some info about the product itself
    thank you

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]

      Hey there!
      The quickview panel is not reusable for other uses. I noted however to find a way in the future to include this curtain effect for regular modal windows.

    1. mariushoria[ Post Author ]
