Can I add a full-width description under the product name and other information?

Most people who use our WooCommerce Product Table plugin want to display each piece of data as a separate column. However, some people like to position the short or long description as a full-width column underneath the other information about each product.

This isn't a feature of the plugin as such, however you can achieve something similar by forcing the short or main description to appear in a 'child row' instead of having its own column, and setting the child row to always be visible. You can do this by combining the column_breakpoints and responsive_display options in WooCommerce Product Table.

You can see this in action in the 'WooCommerce table with short description underneath in a visible child row' table on our demo page. As you can see, the short description is below the title:

WooCommerce table short description under product name

Here's the shortcode that we used to create this demo table. The 'short-description' column is set to 'none' in the column breakpoints option, which means that it will appear in the child row on all devices and never in its own column:

[product_table columns="image,name,tags,weight,att:color,att:size,reviews,price,stock,buy,short-description:Short Description" responsive_display="child_row_visible" column_breakpoints="default,default,default,default,default,default,default,default,default,default,none"]

You will need to change the column names and the options in the column_breakpoints sections of the shortcode to suit your own site.
