WooWeekly #431: Related Products In a Post, Editing Email Strings

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 17,457 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

We’re still fighting with this bad cold, it seems that no matter what we do, it gets worse. We’ve been at this for about 5 weeks, and I’m pretty sure in a few months we’ll find out this is a new COVID variant. Thankfully, the sun is out so there’s no better medicine than that.

Anyhow, back to Woo now – enjoy!

1. Brand New WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: Show Related Products In a Blog Post!

It’s difficult to drive blog readers to the shop page, so I came up with a great idea – why not add a grid of relevant related products at the end of each blog post, based on the most used keywords? ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Edit Text Strings @ Order Emails

Today I’d like to teach you a quick workaround to edit the default email text strings such as the initial greeting (‘Hi Mary,‘) or other sentences (‘We have finished processing your order.‘, ‘The following note has been added to your order:‘, ‘Just to let you know — we’ve received your order, and it is now being processed:‘, etc.). ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

2. ICYMI: WooCommerce Articles

WooCommerce: Count External Product Clicks

Let’s count the number of times customers click on the “Buy product” button that displays on the Single External Product Page, and show the counter in the Products Table in the backend. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Products Attributes in a Shortcode

What if you want to show the product attribute table in a blog post, or in a custom pricing table? Well, we can build a shortcode for that – simply specify a product ID and the shortcode will magically output its attributes. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Bulk Search & Replace SKUs

Yes, you could use a plugin to bulk search and replace a given string inside the WordPress database… but today I want to show you a simple snippet you can use to bulk edit SKUs in your store (please test first on staging or a development site!). ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Hide Specific “Additional Information” Tab Attribute @ Single Product

Yes, you could completely remove the “Additional Information” tab all together, but sometimes you may need to just hide a specific attribute in this table, for whatever reason. Especially when you want to avoid your customers getting confused and abandoning your website. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Automatically Add Tag To Purchased Products

This functionality can be helpful to those who need to differentiate purchased products from non-purchased ones. Think about a way to automatically discount non-tagged products, in order to entice more sales; or a function that only shows purchased products via a custom shortcode. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Limit Sales Of A Product Per Day

Yes, “manage stock” is a nice feature to make sure you don’t oversell a given product based on the stock you have in your warehouse. However, what if you also need to have a “daily sales limit” – say you can’t sell more than 3 of a given product ID in a given day? ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
