To create a parent page for a custom taxonomy in WooCommerce, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Register the custom taxonomy: Use the register_taxonomy() function in your theme's functions.php file to register the custom taxonomy. For example:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
function custom_taxonomy() {
    register_taxonomy(
        'custom_taxonomy',
        'product',
        array(
            'label' => __( 'Custom Taxonomy' ),
            'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'custom-taxonomy' ),
            'hierarchical' => true,
        )
    );
}
add_action( 'init', 'custom_taxonomy' );


In this code, 'custom_taxonomy' is the name of your custom taxonomy.

  1. Create a parent page for the taxonomy: Go to WordPress admin panel and create a new page. Set the title of the page to the name of your custom taxonomy, and leave the content blank. Save the page.
  2. Assign a custom template to the parent page: Create a new file in your theme's folder and name it taxonomy-custom_taxonomy.php. Inside this file, write the following code:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
<?php
/*
Template Name: Custom Taxonomy
*/
get_header();
?>

// Add your taxonomy-specific content here

<?php
get_footer();


  1. Assign the custom template to the parent page: Go back to the WordPress admin panel, edit the parent page you created in step 2, and assign the Custom Taxonomy template to it from the Page Attributes section.
  2. Modify the template to display the taxonomy archive: Edit the taxonomy-custom_taxonomy.php file and add the necessary code to display the taxonomy archive. You can use the get_terms() function to retrieve the terms of the custom taxonomy and display them however you want.


By following these steps, you will be able to create a parent page for a custom taxonomy in WooCommerce and display the associated content on that page.
