WooCommerce: How To Change Product Image Sizes

WooCommerce lets you resize the product images on Single Product and Shop pages from Appearance > Customize > WooCommerce > Product Images.

Besides, you don’t have to manually regenerate the images after resizing them with an additional plugin, as WooCommerce can crop, resize and automatically regenerate image sizes out of the box.

Despite this seems easy enough, it often happens that themes or plugins may override the “Customizer” settings, and even hide them entirely, which causes a lot of confusion.

In this post, we’ll take a look at the default WooCommerce image settings, and finally with a list of FAQ we’ll try to cover all possible scenarios in case you can’t find a solution. Got a question? Feel free to use the comment area!

WooCommerce: Custom Add to Cart URLs – The Ultimate Guide

In WooCommerce you can add a product to the cart via a custom link. You just need to use the “add-to-cart” URL parameter followed by the product ID.

This tutorial will show you how to create custom URLs to add simple, variable and grouped products to the cart – as well as defining the add to cart quantity and an optional redirect.

You will be able to see each possible scenario, and also copy/paste the custom URLs so that you only need to replace product IDs and quantities.

I strongly recommend you read through all the post comments in case you’re not sure about something – many people have asked the same questions over and over again e.g. “Is it possible to add more than 1 product to the cart?” (to which the answer is “no”, unless you install a custom plugin) or “Why does my product get added twice?

With this guide it’s much easier to place WooCommerce add to cart buttons on custom landing pages, pricing tables, blog posts, external websites, and so on. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: How to Fix the “Cart is Empty” Issue

For some reason, sometimes you add products to cart but the cart page stays empty (even if you can clearly see the cart widget has products in it for example).

But don’t worry – it may just be a simple cache issue (and if you don’t know what cache is that’s no problem either) or a theme / plugin “conflict”.

The WooCommerce Cart page is extremely delicate; it displays dynamic content based on cookies and PHP sessions, is coded with PHP but also JS and Ajax, requires to be excluded from cache and is subject to problems in case of out of date software.

So, here’s your “Empty Cart” troubleshooting checklist you can follow without any technical knowledge.

I also recommend you read through the (many) comments, because many developers shared what worked for them too. Good luck!
