I know this may be slightly off topic, but this really is the best place to ask a question related to WooCommerce & WordPress.

I've search high and low for an answer to this question and there does not seem to be one.

I have a specific product under the category 'course'. I would like to create a custom template for this product which I can drop into my themes template files.

What would I need to name the file for it to override on this specific product only?

  • single-product-[slug].php
  • single-product-[category].php
  • single-product-[pageid].php
  • single-product-[productid].php

Please advise.

Override the template with a template_include filter.


you need to check the last specifications from woocommerce to override his template files.


The last time i did it, i copy the template file with the structure of the folder from the woo plugins template directory under the active theme inside a folder named woocommerce with the same structure. You can get more info in the above link.


As woocommerce is basically just posts have you not tried single-productID.php so single-234.php

    Please elaborate on the answer. I can understand how this is a genuine attempt to provide an answer but it is phrased as a question, albeit a carelessly punctuated one.

  • Basically copy single-product.php and rename to single-[productid].php and upload in your theme folder Commented Oct 27, 2015 at 21:02
