Hello, I published a category for featured products to organize more profitable products, I inserted a shortcode with elements in the file of the product category and happily shows the products, but at the end of the page the text appears: No products were found that match the selection.
and the style of the catalog is also lost, the container and spaces are lost.
the attention is appreciated

I am not sure what the purpose of having this set up as a Category. Why not just use a Static Page and add the shortcode to its content?
I can’t see where you’re linking to that Category or if any products are assigned to it.April 23, 2019 at 5:55 am #876424José
Hi David, the static page of the featured products works well … The idea is that the administrator edit the products to make them stand out through the edition of woocommerce products, I do not think it is necessary to create the category of featured products. Question: can it be a problem to show products without having created the featured category? or it is better to create the category and show it like all other products.
Thanks for your helpApril 23, 2019 at 6:30 am #876446DavidStaffCustomer Support
For featured products there is no reason to add the Category. Displaying them on a static page would be the best option.
The alternative, although it requires more work for the administrator is to create a ‘featured’ category or tag. And then leave it to be displayed as a woocommerce archive. It just means that the administrator would have to edit the batch of products to add / remove the category.
Personally i would create a good landing page for the featured products and display them using the Featured Product shortcode.April 23, 2019 at 9:52 am #876796José
Ok David, I will show the featured products on the static page with short code, it’s simpler.
Question: I have activated in woocommerce layout: Display product sorting and Display product results count. Can the same elements be displayed on the static page ?. I was looking for shortcode for this but it seems that woocommerce does not work like that.
or it is better to open another topic to ask this.

Hmmm…. i don’t think you can apply the product sorting to the Featured Products shortcode. This rather vague document explains what can be done:April 23, 2019 at 3:42 pm #877009José
OK David, I’m going to read about this to see which option is better.
Thank youApril 24, 2019 at 12:39 am #877207
