When using WooCommerce on a WordPress site, you can show the products on the shop page as a grid, but depending on your theme, the product’s short description (excerpt) may not appear in the grid.

However, we can add the short description to the grid with the following.

PHP

Place the following code anywhere in your theme’s functions.php document.

				
					// add excerpt to product grid
function short_product_description() {
    ?>
    <h4>
    <?php
    the_title();
    ?>
    </h4>
    <?php
    the_excerpt();
}
add_action( 'woocommerce_before_shop_loop_item_title', 'short_product_description', 40 );
