Styling WooCommerce


Published on

WooCommerce comes with some standard layouts out of the box. But what happens when you want something different?

For this presentation, we will explore:
- How to make Woo changes part of your theme
- How to setup a custom 'shop' page and have all the back links work with it.
- We'll look at all the shortcodes that are available, to segment your products.

Styling WooCommerce

  1. 1. {STYLING: WOOCOMMERCE; } @beckyddesign
  2. 2. ABOUT BECKY  Theme Dev from Chicago  1st WordPress site in 2009  1st WordCamp – Chicago 2010  Speaker Chicago, Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Ann Arbor, NYC, Miami & Europe. Attendee at dozens of others.  Number of WordPress custom themes built – 50+  Mom – both kids out of college  @beckyddesign @beckyddesign
  3. 3. MAKE WOO YOUR OWN  Theme must have declared function to support Woo  Start with _s and get Woo support built in @beckyddesign
  4. 4. WOO PAGES  Checkout, Cart and My Account will use theme templates. These pages replace the_content() with their own.  Shop, Single product and Archive/taxonomy pages use their own Woo templates  These can be copied/edited and customized a bit, but will need updating every time Woo updates the originals.  These files need to be copied to your theme’s woocommerce folder and then edited. Must match directory structure. @beckyddesign Plugin Theme
  5. 5. OUT OF THE BOX @beckyddesign Parent categories Sub-categories Single category Single product
  6. 6. EDIT TEMPLATE FILE  Copy cart.php from Woo templates folder to override it  Paste in your theme folder (don’t forget directory structure)  Edit <div class="cart-collaterals"> <p class="return-to-shop"> <!-- BDD CUSTOM --> <div class="woocommerce-info special" > <?php _e('<p>Free UPS ground shipping to the 48 continental United States on all orders with a subtotal of $100 or more.</p>', 'vet');?> <a class="button wc-backward" href="<?php echo esc_url( apply_filters( 'woocommerce_return_to_shop_redirect', wc_get_page_permalink( 'shop' ) ) ); ?>"> <?php _e( 'Return to shop', 'woocommerce' ) ?> </a> </div> @beckyddesign
  7. 7. FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT  Out of the box sorting is terrible  No sub-category with products and then another sub- category  All Woo product pages are generated by their archive-product.php template file  You can add text/img to top of Shop page, but not much else  What happens when you get a custom design? @beckyddesign
  8. 8. CUSTOM SHOP PAGE  Create a custom template  Add custom fields  Add product shortcodes [products limit="4" columns="4" category="featured"] [product_categories number="12" parent="63"] (In template file, wrap these in an echo) <?php echo do_shortcode ('[product_categories number="12" parent="63"]');?> @beckyddesign
  9. 9. SHOP PAGE RE-DIRECT  Create a new page for the template  Re-direct all ‘shop’ links to this page function wc_empty_cart_redirect_url() { return ( home_url( '/' ).'shop'); } add_filter( 'woocommerce_return_to_shop_redirect', 'wc_empty_cart_redirect_url’ );  Do not set this as Shop page in Woo  Re-name original shop page @beckyddesign
  10. 10. FILTERING WITH FACETS  FacetWP plugin  Setup facet  Add shortcode to sidebar [facetwp facet="birdfood_sub_cat"] @beckyddesign
  11. 11.  Create facet template in plugin  Add template to archive-product.php <!-- BDD add custom facet sidebar --> <?php if (is_product_category()) { echo get_sidebar('store'); echo "<div class='facetwp-template store'>"; } ?> <!-- BDD add div to differentiate between shop and product pages --> <?php if (is_shop()){ echo "<div class='shop'>"; } ?> @beckyddesign
  12. 12. USEFUL FUNCTIONS  sort-shipping-methods-cost/ Shipping rates can get out of order and not show cheapest first, this fixes that.  Get rid of the extra stuff //remove breadcrumbs remove_action ('woocommerce_before_main_content','woocommerce_breadcrumb',20); //remove sorting remove_action ('woocommerce_before_shop_loop','woocommerce_catalog_ordering', 30); //remove result count remove_action ('woocommerce_before_shop_loop', 'woocommerce_result_count', 20); @beckyddesign
  13. 13. USEFUL EXTENSIONS  WP Menu cart  WooCommerce Catalog Visibility Options – hide pricing and buttons to all or just certain user roles  SearchWP – fantastic plugin to improve on-site search. Has Woo extension and one for custom Term Synonyms  WooCommerce Tab manager – make the description tabs your own. (You can do this with hooks as well.) @beckyddesign
  14. 14. REFERENCE LINKS  Excellent presentation by Bridget Wessell:  woocommerce-word-camp-milwaukee-2015  Woo shortcodes:  ce-shortcodes/ @beckyddesign
