Custom Category Select

Jun. 2017

Custom Category Select extends WC Vendors (a multi-vendor marketplace solution for WooCommerce) to make it easier for vendors to find and select appropriate categories for their products.

I designed and developed both the front-end and back-end in my role as lead developer at The Plugin Pros.


  • Designed theĀ GUI with input from my partner, Chris Wade.
  • Developed the plugin using PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Integrated the WC Vendors software licensing client to enable distribution through the WC Vendors marketplace.


  • PHP
  • JavaScript (Backbone.js)
  • WordPress
  • WooCommerce


A clean and intuitive interface replaces the stock category selection interface.
Vendors are guided to select the most granular product category available.
If the vendor makes a mistake, they can click the “undo” button to remove their last selection.
