WooCommerce & Avada: Social Sharing @ Product Category

A client wanted to add the social sharing icons provided with Avada theme on the shop loop and product shortcodes as well. The social sharing icons are visible on the single product page only, so here’s how you do it!

PHP Snippet: Add Social Sharing to WooCommerce Product Loop Items in Avada Theme

 */

add_action( 'woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item', 'bbloomer_avada_show_social_sharing', 20 );

function bbloomer_avada_show_social_sharing() {
   if ( function_exists( 'avada_woocommerce_after_single_product_summary' ) ) {
      avada_woocommerce_after_single_product_summary();
   }
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

  1. It appears to no longer be working?

    1. Thanks for your comment Zach. Try asking Avada support and see what they think. If you find a fix, please let me know

  2. how to change the position of the social sharing in avada woocommerce single product page to under the product thumbnail images?

    1. Hello Jane, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  3. Hi Rudolfo,

    yes, good idea!
    But where can I say WHICH sharing buttons are shown?

    regards,
    Clemens

    1. Hey Clemens, thanks for your comment 🙂 I took a look at the Avada function and it has no filter available. Hence, you need to hide the sharing buttons via CSS. I’ll need to take a look at the website to give you the exact CSS, but something like this should point you in the right direction:

      .single-product .social-share li.facebook {
      display: none;
      }
