Lasso has a few types of displays as shown below:

In this guide, we're going to break down customizing these Display types. You can add any of these customized attributes inside the brackets of the shortcode.

For example, the shortcode below would show the "our-courses" Grid Display with three columns and no product descriptions:

[lasso type="grid" category="our-courses" link_id="1967169" columns="3" description="hide"]


Single Product Displays

The default shortcode for this display will look similar to this:

[lasso ref="lasso-plugin" id="49834" link_id="1967174"]

The initial three attributes (ref, id, and link_id) are set by Lasso to help pull in the correct product information. You should not be changing these by hand.
