When a WooCommerce customer posts a product review on the single product page, and “Comment must be manually approved” is enabled under WordPress dashboard > Settings > Discussion, the store owner gets an email notification so that they can approve / trash / spam such a review.
What you probably knew, is that the “WooCommerce product review” is – actually – a “WordPress post comment“, which means the email that the admin gets is the default “Please moderate: _____” notification that is also generated when a comment is submitted on a blog post.
Which… is really bad! And that’s because the email does not contain any sort of information regarding the WooCommerce product review, and especially the rating (“2 stars out of 5”). 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.
Here’s how to display the review rating in the “Please moderate: ____” admin email notification, when the comment is – of course – a WooCommerce product review. Enjoy!

In WooCommerce, everything is easy until you have a dozen products to manage. But once you start scaling, and maybe need to import hundreds of items, right then is when you go looking for shortcuts.
Problem is – there are single product settings that you must enter manually for each product (or do it in bulk anyway) such as tax status, tax class, shipping class, sold individually, enable reviews and more; you could keep repeating your manual setup operations or fine-tune your bulk editor system to get that done, but what if there were a few lines of code that would simply “set” whatever option you need for ALL products, without worrying whether that specific option is set or not set in the single product edit page?
For example, it happened to a client of mine that we forgot to “enable reviews” on 10,000 imported products so we were left with two choices: re-run the product import, or find something smarter. And the latter is what we’ll cover today.
So, how do you “override” or “force” a specific WooCommerce single product setting without worrying about its actual per-product value, so that products do behave all the same? Here are a couple of ideas. Enjoy!

Business Bloomer enters the world of Gutenberg today, and we do it with a simple customization tutorial related to the “Product Grid” WooCommerce Gutenberg Blocks: currently these are “Best Selling Products“, “Newest Products“, “On Sale Products“, “Top Rated Products“, “Products by Category” and use the same base code…
However, all of them use custom code and not the default WooCommerce templates (and therefore we can’t take advantage of the WooCommerce hooks for the shop / product archive / product loop unfortunately), so we need to find a workaround if we wish to remove some of the default elements that come up with the product grid items: product permalink, product image, product title*, sale badge, product price*, rating*, add to cart button* in this exact order.
* As you can see from the screenshot below, actually, you can already remove the information with an asterisk from the Block settings. So, in this article, we will see how to remove the rest in case you don’t want it: permalink, image, sale badge. Enjoy!

WooCommerce product reviews shows by default in the “Reviews” tab in the single product page. But what if, like me, you’re using custom sales pages and need to show such reviews elsewhere – by using a shortcode?
I’ve spent some time doing this for two Business Bloomer pages, the contact page (beside the request a quote form) and the Business Bloomer Club sales page (just above the pricing table), so I thought it would have been great sharing the snippet with you. Enjoy!
