  2. 2.My 25 Best WooCommerce Snippets For WordPress Part 2

A few days ago I wrote a post where I listed 25 of the most useful WooCommerce snippets I use and you were many people to ask for more, so today i decided to provide some more snippets for WooCommerce! Here we go!

1 – Replace WooCommerce default PayPal logo

/*
 * Replace WooCommerce default PayPal icon
 */
function paypal_checkout_icon() {
 return 'https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/mktg/logo-center/logo_betalen_met_paypal_nl.jpg'; // write your own image URL here
}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_paypal_icon', 'paypal_checkout_icon' );

2 – Replace default product placeholder image

/*
* goes in theme functions.php or a custom plugin. Replace the image filename/path with your own 🙂
*
**/
add_action( 'init', 'custom_fix_thumbnail' );
 
function custom_fix_thumbnail() {
  add_filter('woocommerce_placeholder_img_src', 'custom_woocommerce_placeholder_img_src');
   
	function custom_woocommerce_placeholder_img_src( $src ) {
	$upload_dir = wp_upload_dir();
	$uploads = untrailingslashit( $upload_dir['baseurl'] );

	}
}

    I really very like a list 25 Best WooCommerce Snippets For WordPress. I follow and read a lot of posts on your site and get many tips for me. Thanks for sharing this article. Look forward to hearing more information from you!
  2. rwilk says:
    thanks for posting these. looks like some very useful tips!
  3. John Langlois says:
    I really appreciate the snippets you have provided. Rather than creating a page for each category that contains the category shortcode, such as [product_categories number="17" columns="3"], I would like to pass the category number via a menu link. That way one page can service any category. Is this possible through the menu or a filter? Thanks.

    Thanks Remi, Great work. Could you please write a snippet to change "READ MORE" text in product listings. Add to Cart text replaced by Read More for all sold out items and I would like it to display as SOLD. Please help
  7. Justin says:
    These are useful codes Remi, Thanks a lot. Is there an extensive list of woocommerce order replacement codes we can use in the email templates to pull in customer and order information? From the templates I've been able to figure out that %o pulls in the order id and %s pulls in the blog name. Is there one for first name and last name etc, this would really be good to personalise the emails sent to clients a bit more.

    Hi Remi, Thank you for this wonderful ressource! I have a couple questions regarding changing the add to cart button texts. For one thing, I've been testing WooCommerce 2.1 beta 2 on a dev site in preparation for a project I'll start next week. I tried the code you supplied but it's having no effect whatsoever. I have other filters working so I was wondering if you know if either the filter names for modifying add to cart button text changed in 2.1 or if there's a bug that should be fixed before final. I also found some code in the WC docs that uses different filters that do work: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/change-add-to-cart-button-text/ woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text Secondly and related to the working filters just above, there's usually at least 2 types of add to cart buttons, "Add to Cart" for simple products and "Select Options" for variable products. If I want to target one or the other, do you know the conditional that can be used in the filter function? Thanks again! I recently discovered your site as an awesome WooCOmmerce ressource. You do great work here! :)

    Hi Remi, Great snippets. I was looking certain snippets related to coupon use. But I see that there are only a few (if not none) that change the behaviour or placement of the coupon entry box. Is it difficult, or woocommerce doesn't have hooks for coupon box, or is it just no one is interested to change the coupon box? Do you have a snippets to make the coupon code as required? I don't use (bypass) the cart so this will only applied to the checkout page. Other thing is how to keep payment method displayed and applied when user use a coupon with 100% discount? I learned that woocommerce logic is that when the discount is 100% means a payment method is not important anymore. But I think, especially for manual payment, it is still relevant because we want to know which method is prefered by user. I also use a snippet to change the order status to complete only on one payment method. Since it is bypassed when using 100% discount, the status is not changed. I really hope you have the solution for this. Thank you Rio
  11. Aleš says:
    Hello and thanks very much for these. I was wondering do you have a way to rename the "Products" breadcrumb to something else? It says HOME | PRODUCTS | ITEM1, and I would like it to say HOME | SHOP| ITEM1. Thanks so much and have a nice day
  12. Aleš says:
    thank you for your reply. I have Breadcrumb NavXT, so these don't work. Do you have a way for Breadcrumb NavXT? Thank you very much

      Nope, I don't use the plugin sorry. I use a custom breadcrumbs plugin I developed for myself ;)

    Excellent tips.. Thank you very much. What's a good way to change 'Add to Cart' to 'Go to Product' if the product has already been purchased?

    Hi, Is there a snippet to EMPTY CART AUTOMATICALLY everytime someone leaves checkout page. This is because I want guests to only be able to buy one product at a time and see the summary of one product only. Thanks for your help.
  16. riverfoot says:
    Hey, you seem like you know your WooCommerce! I have been struggling with this lately, maybe you could help point me in the right direction? I am trying to change the add to cart button to remove from cart if it has already been added to cart. Any ideas? Thanks for the sweet blog!
  17. A Devasher says:
    Great stuff! Would it be too cheeky to ask for one more? How does one add a 'sold out' badge on a product when it is purchased and runs out of stock instead of 'out of stock' which should only be for items that are actually out of stock and have not sold. Cheers A
    • AJ Clarke says:
      AJ Clarke
      I think it would look something like this:
      global $product;
      if ( !$product->is_in_stock() ) {
        // This product is sold out, do stuff
      }

    Great post!! I have bookmarked 1 & 2! Is there a way to set it up so that when they click 'buy now' on the shop page...that they go directly to PayPal. Id like to bypass the product page and the checkout pages.... Thank you!
    • AJ Clarke says:
      AJ Clarke
      Hi Brenda, yes you can do what you want by following the instructions on their website for setting up Paypal Express.

  20. JIm says:
    It would be really useful in the admin email to list the purchased products according to their category, like: Sports Equipment helmet...[price info] ball........[price info] Athletic Wear headband.....[price info] running shirt [price info] and although I didn't do it above, for each product list to be alphabetized in each category. Currently I don't think the default email echos category at all. In fact what I get is (I think) a list of products in the order that the purchaser added them to the cart. Thank you for the great snippets!
  21. Hypnoseausbildung says:
    Thanks a lot for the snippets. The problem is, after updating the plugin, all that needs to be done again with accepting unwanted sideffects. :(
    • Remi says:
      you don't need to do it again as the snippets must be placed in functions.php. If you use a parent theme and a child theme you can update the plugin and the parent theme without having to re-add the snippets.
