SSF Shortcode for filters
You may be using a theme builder that lets you customise your WooCommerce templates, like Elementor, Beaver Builder/Beaver Themer, WP Bakery, Divi or Oxygen. If this is the case, it’s possible there will be areas where they don’t allow you to add widgets or perhaps where they don’t let you edit the widgets.

Adding widgets to the FWW Shortcode area
To get started, go to your Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets and on the right, you will see the FWW Shortcode widget area. Add the widgets you want to display into this widget area.

The shortcode you need to add in order to see all the widgets you added to the FWW Shortcode widget area is:
This approach works with all of the following theme builders:
- Beaver Builder and Beaver Themer
- WP Bakery (formerly Visual Composer)
