So many times I needed to “play” with Cart contents in order to modify the default behaviour (such as removing a columns, hide the sale price to prices, hide an item, etc.).
There is a great PHP function that always helps – it’s called print_r and you can use this to “see” what’s inside the cart array, so that you can return certain information in a message for example.
A bit advanced, but as you grow your WooCommerce coding skills, you will use this a lot 🙂 Continue reading WooCommerce: See What’s Inside the Cart Array (print_r)
Case scenario: if you add a product ID to cart with a specific, you want another product automatically added to cart (Buy One Get One, or “BOGO”).
This second product should have price = 0 if you wish to completely give it away, or maybe a set sale price. It should also be set to “hidden” because maybe you want to hide this free product from the shop and only gift it when the first one is added to Cart.
Also, if you remove product 1, the gifted product should go away from the Cart too. So here follows the PHP snippet of course!

WordPress Customizer allows users to tweak their website and let them see a live preview of the changes. It uses the WordPress Customize API introduced in WordPress 3.4. You can easily access the WordPress Customizer interface from Dashboard -> Appearance -> Customize.

With seemingly thousands of Free and Premium WordPress themes out there, it can be tricky to pick the right WordPress theme for your business.
While launching a website seems easy, hardest part is finding a theme that meets your content requirement. There is not a single WordPress theme that would meet all the needs of all website owners. Every theme is built for a specific purpose and has its own strengths and weaknesses. Your job is to find the theme that meets your business’s needs.
While there are themes that do it all, they tend to be heavy and bloated because they are designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of website owners. In other words, they do everything but specialize in nothing.
Choosing these resource-consuming and feature-heavy WordPress themes is like getting operated on by a surgeon who has nothing but a Swiss army knife to perform all surgical tasks.
Finding the right WordPress theme requires more than just picking a theme based on look. In this article, we will provide some tips on what to look out for when choosing a WordPress theme. We will also recommend some free tools to help you check a theme’s credibility.

WooCommerce entrepreneurs can take advantage of this “marketing trick” too. The only problem is: how do we show this “extra field” on the single product page AND in the product edit page, so that the website owner can add this easily?
