If you access the WordPress dashboard and go to WooCommerce > Orders, you will be presented with the WooCommerce “Orders Table” i.e. the list of customer orders. Each row comes with several columns, such as the order number, order date, order status, order billing and shipping addresses and more.
What’s annoying sometimes is that the whole row is a clickable link, so if you need to copy and paste some information you will end up actually clicking on it, and being redirected to the single order page.
There is a way to add a specific “class” to each table row, so that it becomes not clickable, and the only link that remains is the very first column table cell – the order number (as it should be by default!).
So, let’s see how easy it is to alter this default behaviour. Enjoy!

WooCommerce: Add Second Description @ Product Category Pages In terms of SEO, if you’re trying to rank your product category pages, you really need to make the most of the default WooCommerce product category “description” and “thumbnail”. Most themes, if compatible with WooCommerce, will show this content right below the product category name and above products. Nothing new so far. But what if […]
WooCommerce: Get Order Info (total, items, etc) From $order Object As a WooCommerce development freelancer, every day I repeat many coding operations that make me waste time. One of them is: “How to get ____ if I have the $order variable/object?“. For example, “How can I get the order total“? Or “How can I get the order items“? Or maybe the order dates, customer ID, […]
WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field Let’s imagine you want to add a custom checkout field (and not an additional billing or shipping field) on the WooCommerce Checkout page. For example, it might be a customer licence number – this has got nothing to do with billing and nothing to do with shipping. Ideally, this custom field could show above the […]
WooCommerce: Create a Custom Order Status All WooCommerce orders go to either “processing”, “completed”, “on-hold” and other default order statuses based on the payment method and product type. Sometimes these statuses are not enough. For example, you might need to mark certain orders in a different way for tracking, filtering, exporting purposes. Or you might want to disable default emails by […]
WooCommerce: Allow Users to Edit Processing Orders How can WooCommerce customers edit an order they just placed and paid for? I swear I looked on search engine results and other places before coming to the conclusion I needed to code this myself. For example, a user might want to change the delivery date (if you provide this on the checkout page). Or […]
