I'm trying to find the best practice to disable the main "
/shop" page in Woocommerce, without disabling the category product pages. There doesn't seem to be an answer for this anywhere... Does anyone know how to do this?
I did find a bunch of semi-similar posts which hide every shop (category) page or simply replace the content in archive-product.php to create a 404...
So to help clarify: The goal is to keep the category product pages like "
/shop/clothing", but only disable the main "
/shop" page without causing any SEO disadvantages. (I assume setting the shop page to no index would affect the category pages as well?)
Thank you so much in advance for solving this.
