The problem :
Custom query in archive-page is not altering the $woocommerce_loop. $woocommerce_loop is in original state after running custom query so for shop with 34 products it always will return all the shop items.
Why i need to upadte this variable?
I found out that $woocommerce_loop is responsible for pagination and also for result count. Altering it will fix these problems.
What i was trying to do:
1 Manually set values for this $woocommerce_loop
– wc_set_loop_prop(‘total’, 5);
– $woocommerce_loop[‘loop’][‘total’] => 5;
2 Replacing main wp_query with my_query like :
$temp_query = $wp_query;
$wp_query = NULL;
$wp_query = $my_query;
Both methods have no impact for this variable so i cannot understand from where $woocommerce_loop is fetching it results.
Result of ‘var_dump ($woocommerce_loop)
[“name”]=> string(0) “”
[“total”]=> string(2) “34”
[“current_page”]=> int(1) }
For exapmle if i go to the ‘category1’ from category tree,
results will be displayed properly and variable also will be updated but if i run query that is doing the same thing (displaying all products from category1) it will display proper products with wrong result count and pagination.
How to fix it, any tips?
