How to Hide SKUs on WooCommerce Product Pages

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question from Marley: Is there a way for me to hide SKUs in WooCocommerce from the single product template without overriding it? I’m currently overriding the single product meta template and deleting the SKU from being adding, but I’d rather do this via a code snippet so I’m not overriding that template if it can be done. We covered this previously in our 20 WooCommerce How to’s, but I think it’s…

Overriding Templates in WooCommerce Extensions

WooCommerce has a system in place that will allow you to override core templates within your child theme. This means that you can copy a template file, edit it, and the edited version in your theme will be loaded instead of the core version of the template.

Advanced Reviews: WooCommerce Product Reviews Pro

If you’ll humor me a moment, could you think about the last online purchase you made and where it was? For me, it’s easy — the answer is almost always Amazon 🙂 — but you may have to think a moment. You can even close your eyes if it helps! Now that you have it in your mind: when you made that purchase, what made you decide to buy the particular product you bought? Hold…

Changing WooCommerce Attribute Visibility Defaults

Here’s a quick tip from a question we were asked by Nick: Any time I add attributes to my products, I want to display them on the product page and use them for variations.

For reference, when you add attributes to a product, you’re given the option to show them on the product page (which adds them to the “Additional Information” product…

8 Lessons Learned by building the WooCommerce iPhone App

One of our major goals for the first half of this year was to release the official WooCommerce iPhone app. While we released the app a bit behind schedule (in July), we were still really excited to get our first iOS app out the door and to create a mobile store management tool that we’d want to use ourselves. However, the process of building the app wasn’t entirely smooth sailing, so we figured we’d share…
