Embed a specific category

Use the following short code to embed a specific category:

[rentle_shop shop = "Shop ID" category ="Category ID"]

Category ID is the ID of the category you want to embed. You can find it in your Rentle Admin App > Catalog > Categories. The Category ID is the last section in the selected category's URL. In the example below, the ID for the category Books is P7DuErhFKGh1yHOczl3n
