Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 17,390 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.
First of all, happy new year! I completely forgot to write the newsletter last week as I lost track of time during the holidays; what a lovely excuse :D!
This year will finally see me back at work (almost) full time, which means I’ll have time to develop the business and generate more text/video content for you. I will also invest time in partnerships and looking for business helpers (speaking of which, if you’re willing to help in any way, feel free to email me back). My to-do list is super long. I hope to accomplish 1% of what I have in mind – at least.
Anyhow, back to Woo now – enjoy!

WooCommerce: Show Product Image @ Emails
With this little trick, you can revert this default behavior and indeed show images beside their product name inside the email order item table. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Item Custom Field @ Edit Order Page
When, as an administrator, you edit an order and are in the Order Items table, you have the chance to edit the item quantity, subtotal and discounted price.

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles
WooCommerce: Get Product Parent Categories
For example, it’s easy to “get the current product’s categories“, but how can we get the “parent product categories” only? In today’s snippet we will see how this can be achieved in 7 lines of PHP ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Disable A Plugin For Customers / Shop Managers
There are a million reasons why this could be helpful. So, let’s see how to actually deactivate a plugin (not disable its scripts – but actually deactivate it) with a handy piece of code ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Bulk Replace Product Inside Existing Orders
It’s a one-off operation that could take hours if it had to be done manually, based on the number of existing orders. With this simple snippet, however, you can edit an unlimited number of orders, and let the code replace ordered items. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Add Custom Meta Box @ Order Admin
So, here’s how we add a new “section” (meta box) to the single order edit page in the WordPress dashboard, and how we display some content in it. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Additional Stock Inventory Location
This amazing workaround will add a second input number in the product settings, redefine stock quantity and status on the frontend by summing up stock 1 + stock 2, and finally decrease stock 1 until it goes to 0, after which it will decrease stock 2. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Additional “Store Address” @ General Settings
In this tutorial, we will add a new “Warehouse Address” section and address fields under the “Store Address” settings, and also see how we can easily retrieve this custom address so that you can display it anywhere. Enjoy! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Stock Quantity in a Shortcode
Let’s build a simple shortcode to display the stock quantity in other sections of the website, that can automatically update the output, so that you never need to worry about changing that piece of content ever again. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
WooCommerce: Disable Restocking @ Order Cancelled
Here’s a PHP one-liner that can immediately disable this default behavior, so that you can avoid the automatic restocking (and maybe doing it manually based on your business rules). ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
