Shows the custom products grid displaying before the single product summary when products have been assigned to a brand and are in stock. When “out of stock” and/or not assigned to a brand, products will not display in the grid.

Tested using the Twenty Twenty default theme for WordPress & the Genesis Sample theme by StudioPress.


Copy & paste the PHP code ( without the opening PHP tag ) to the end of your child themes functions file or custom functionality ( code snippets ) plugin, then go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks & resave your permalinks.

You can then edit the product shortcode to add your brand names.

Once you have installed the code, you can use the custom function from the download folder to display your products or the following shortcode in a HTML widget.

[products limit="4" columns="4" class="brand,Nike,Apple,Demo,outofstock"]

Edit this shortcode to include a comma separated list of the brands you want shown.
