WooWeekly #463: Bulk Remove Cats | Product Review Email | Image Sizes

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 18,271 subscribers) so that you can learn something new.

I’m back from holiday and I had a great time in Rome – just a little flu but nothing major. I spent 5 days with no laptop and surely it must have been a personal record.

Haven’t done much in regard to my WooCommerce mini-plugins challenge (stuck at 23 plugins + the all-access bundle) but I plan to release a few more by next week. At the same time I’m working on the re-branding and re-launching of Bloomer Armada, which will now turn into a proper private community for beginner and advanced WooCommerce developers. Feel free to share your thoughts / views / opinions so that I can craft the best, safest, most helpful, most inclusive environment for all of us.

Anyhow, here are this week’s WooCommerce tips – enjoy.

1. WooCommerce Tips & Snippets

WooCommerce: “Bulk Edit” > Remove Categories @ Admin Products List

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

It seems you cannot remove product categories from the Bulk Edit products window, which is a bummer! Well, I’m not sure if this is a WooCommerce choice, but honestly it’s such a basic thing that I’m surprised there is no bulk edit option for that. See snippet

WooCommerce: Show Rating @ WooCommerce Product Review Admin Email

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

The email that WooCommerce managers get when a product review is posted does not contain any sort of information regarding… the WooCommerce product review, and especially the rating. As a store owner, I definitely want to know whether the comment I’m about to moderate is (1) a product review and if (2) I need to reply to unfair feedback, so, let’s change that. See snippet

Images are one of the most important parts of any online store. However, there are so many different WooCommerce product image size types used in WooCommerce, that it’s not always easy to figure out where you can change them to suit your specific needs. Read more

WooCommerce: Order Number Prefix / Suffix

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

What if you need to add a prefix or a suffix to this number, so that this is in line with your business or invoice requirements? See snippet

WooCommerce: Get “Trending” Products

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

There is a way to display the WooCommerce bestsellers via shortcode / block, but there is no way to calculate the bestsellers – say – from the last 7 days i.e. a list of “trending” products over the last N days. The function below gives you a way to loop through the latest orders and fill an array with the top 10 products – you can then pass this list of IDs to a shortcode to display them wherever you wish. See snippet

WooCommerce: Get Order Tax Percentage

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

You’d think WooCommerce had an easy way to get the order tax rate percentage, the same way as you can get almost everything inside the “order object” with a single line of PHP. Well, that’s not the case unfortunately. See snippet

WooCommerce: Product Title Shortcode

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

On my WooCommerce product pages I found myself typing the product title at least three times: in the product name input field, ok, but also again in the product long description and in a custom product tab inside a text link. So, I coded a shortcode! See snippet

WooCommerce: Add Hyperlink to Shipping Method Label @ Cart & Checkout

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

How can we add a clickable text link to each shipping method, given that we can’t use the WooCommerce settings? Well, as usual, a quick PHP snippet can help us with that. See snippet

WooCommerce: Hide “Private” Products From The Shop Page

By Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

The problem is that if admins or store managers are logged in, private WooCommerce products (as well as private WordPress posts, private WordPress pages, etc.) are actually visible on the Shop, Category and product loop pages. See snippet
