How you doing?
Here in Sicily all is well despite the heatwave that has been keeping us indoors in the last few days. We reached temperatures of nearly50° celsius in some areas of the island, although I’ve only recorded a max temperature of 43.5° where I live. Needless to say, it’s way too hot and working in this conditions is not ideal. But sure, the show must go on!

WooCommerce: Move Labels Inside Checkout Fields
Although UX and accessibility experts won’t like this customization, it’s still important to know “what’s possible” with WooCommerce. In regard to the checkout form (billing + shipping + notes), there is a useful “woocommerce_checkout_fields” hook (filter) that is widely used by developers like me to alter the behavior of input fields. In today’s episode we will take a look, indeed, at how to remove the checkout field labels from their default position (above fields), and use them as placeholders instead, so that we save up some vertical space.

WooCommerce: How to Customize Email Templates Without Coding
On a daily basis, you probably use drag-and-drop in a variety of interfaces. For instance, drag and drop your Gmail items to its category, upload files to WordPress media library, or organize your phone home screen apps. While many page builder platforms come in to help you design your website with drag-and-drop, building WooCommerce transactional emails is still considered as a complex task. By default, WooCommerce email settings only allow you to change basic color profiles and text. In order to customize further, you will have to modify the theme code. If you are a non-techie and don’t want to crack the code between the scripts in wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/emails/email-styles.php or so, using a drag-and-drop email builder framework is the best solution: https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-customize-emails-without-coding/
ICYMI: Last Week WC Tuts
WooCommerce: Hide Add to Cart If Already Purchased
We already saw how to hide add to cart for logged out users and how to find out if a user has already bought a given product – so I said why not combine the two snippets and figure out how to hide the add to cart button if a logged in customer has already purchased a product? After that, however, I realized that the “woocommerce_is_purchasable” filter offered by the WooCommerce plugin makes the task much easier than just combining the two mini-plugins above. So, here’s how it’s done – enjoy: https://www.businessbloomer.com/woocommerce-hide-add-to-cart-if-already-purchased/

If this sounds like you – you’re at the right place.
