WooWeekly #477: Image Lightbox | Optional Fields | Engraving | Exit Intent

Hello there,

Welcome back to WooWeekly, your weekly appointment with WooCommerce tutorials, tips and updates handpicked for you (and the other 18,554 subscribers), so that you can learn something new.

Busy start of the year at Business Bloomer HQ, with 2023 client work and a custom, automated tax filing system integration between my WooCommerce website and the Italian revenue agency, which took me hours… Having said that, I’m very excited about this week’s and next week’s Woo masterclasses – we will first live code an LMS plugin (Jan 11), and the week after we will learn more about WooCommerce + AI (Jan 18). See you there?

Anyhow, as every week, here’s your round-up of WooCommerce tips and tricks. Enjoy!

WooCommerce Tips

WooCommerce: How to Reuse Zoom/Lightbox Scripts On Non-Product Images

WooCommerce product images on the Single Product page get the default Zoom + Lightbox + Photoswipe behavior. Now, the challenge that I had on Business Bloomer was that I wanted blog readers to also enjoy the same WooCommerce zoom / lightbox features on blog post images. So, without reinventing the wheel, I’m now loading the WooCommerce scripts on single posts, and on image click I trigger the lightbox! by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

WooCommerce: Remove “(optional)” From Checkout Field Labels

If a WooCommerce checkout field is set to “not required“, its label will get the “(optional)” suffix. Considering the required fields get the red “*” suffix, you may want to get completely rid of the (optional) string. by Rodolfo Melogli, Business Bloomer

Why You Should Use Exit Intent Popups on Your WooCommerce Store

If you’re not using exit intent popups at your eCommerce store, then you are almost certainly missing out on sales. These sales can be in the form of preventing cart abandonment and additional upsells to increase your average order value. You can also use exit intent popups to drive a huge increase in other metrics, such as subscribers, followers, and the number of reviews you receive. by Joe Fylan, CommerceGurus
