Woocommerce enables Product gallery thumbnails to appear as vertical sliders


When you want to build an online-sale-websites based on WordPress, the first thing you usually do is look for a free plugin like Woocommerce. Apt for your needs, you can install it on your website and see the plugin turn yours into a successful and handy sales site. Most of the ecommerce websites are made with the help opf Woocomerce. In these, you can sell anything on it such as mobile phones, clothes, toys, food, and etc.

The plugin’s UI and UX are visually friendly and you won’t have to take much time to familiarize yourself with it. While using WordPress pretty Photo with the plug in, we at Digital Aptech tried to alter the customized thumbnail view of the products gallery.

In a successful iteration of the product image view, the gallery was seen in a vertical slider format. This was possible when we dequeued the default Prettyphoto plugin from WordPress. We made sure that the the jquery slider files were not directly altered. We then modified the files from where the product thumbnail loop appears. This file is located in themes/theme_name/woocommerce/templates/single-product/product-thumbnails.php.

After altering the html structure , we successfully made the product thumbnail loop appear as a slider. This slider is in the vertical format. We used the RoyalSlider Jquery plugin to provide an eye catching and beautiful layout.
