The shortcode [product_categories] displays the category loop in the default grid mode.

Follow the steps to transform the grid into a carousel

1. Insert a Product Categories element

2. Add the class categories-to-carousel to the column where the Product Categories element was just added.

3. Paste this function to /wp-content/themes/goya-child/functions.php

add_action( 'wp_footer', 'categories_to_slider' );
function categories_to_slider() {
  jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
   $args = {
    slidesToShow: 4,
    slidesToScroll: 4,
    prevArrow: '<a class="slick-prev">'+ goya_theme_vars.icons.prev_arrow +'</a>',
    nextArrow: '<a class="slick-next">'+ goya_theme_vars.icons.next_arrow +'</a>',
    responsive: [{
     breakpoint: 768,
     settings: {
      slidesToShow: 2,
      slidesToScroll: 2,
   $('.categories-to-carousel .et-main-products').slick($args);
}Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

You can adjust the number of columns for desktops and mobiles. Use your preferred values.
