1. WooCommerce Tips & Tutorials

WooCommerce: Add New Tab @ Single Product Page

I want to concentrate on the actual functionality of adding a custom tab, giving a name and a heading to it, showing it conditionally (e.g. only for a specific product category), and making sure the “scroll to tab” works when the URL contains its anchor tag. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Get Draft Product URL

You may need the product URL for a scheduled blog post, a future newsletter, an email; in whatever case, this is a cool way to “get” the product URL and print it in the “Publish” meta box of the single product edit page. Enjoy! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

How To Fix a Missing WooCommerce Add to Cart Button

So what do you do when your add to cart button is missing from a WooCommerce store? We’ll cover that in this tutorial. Read on to discover why the add to cart button matters, what may cause it to disappear, and how to troubleshoot the issue Maddy Osman, Nexcess

WooCommerce: Move Sale Badge Beside Price @ Single Product Page

The single product page template is laid out so that the SALE badge comes first, on its own line, then comes the product title, the product price on its own line, the short description, etc. As you can see, there is lots of white space on the right hand side, so let’s move the SALE badge right beside the price! ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Custom Logout Redirect @ My Account

When you use separate Login and Registration pages, or whenever you have custom landing pages you wish your customers to see instead of the default My Account page, we can set a custom URL by code and safely redirect the just-logged-out customer there. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Product Description in a Shortcode!

It may be helpful to show the long product description of a given product in a custom WordPress page or post, so that you can use it as a teaser or anyway as a way to save some time instead of rewriting the whole thing. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Disable Orders Table Row Hyperlink @ Admin

What’s annoying sometimes is that the whole row is a clickable link, so if you need to copy and paste some information you will end up actually clicking on it, and being redirected to the single order page. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Change Address Format For a Specific Country

Now, what if you wanted to move the “company” before the customer name, or maybe have “address 1” and “address 2” on the same line, or move “postcode” to the last line? Well, thankfully there is a neat WooCommerce filter called “woocommerce_localisation_address_formats” that allows us to do just that – reformat any address for any country we wish. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Change “Buy Product” Label for External Products

So, here’s a super quick fix to override the “Buy Product” external add to cart button label to whatever you wish, without ever touching the manual settings. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Refresh Checkout Upon Any Input Field Change

In case you add custom checkout fields that may cause a difference in pricing, or you want to keep the checkout UX consistent, or you have some other kinds of logic, it may be useful to refresh the order review section after a change on any checkout field. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Add Content To Additional Information Tab @ Single Product Page

There are hooks, thankfully, that can help us display additional content in there, either above or below the attributes table. ~ Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer
