SkyTrip 2017

SkyTrip 2017 Recap

A few weeks ago, our team of 10 SkyVergers converged on Orlando, Florida for our 2nd annual company retreat, dubbed SkyTrip. It was an incredible 5 days of beautiful weather, sharing a few delicious meals together, a bit of work, and of course the ever-present ear-splitting 120 dB pool alarms found in Florida vacation homes. As a remote company, this co-located time with the entire team is really important to us, so we plan to…

WooCommerce PDF Product Vouchers 3.0

This week, we’ll release WooCommerce PDF Product Vouchers version 3.0, which has been an update long in the making for our PDF Product Vouchers plugin. Over time, we’ve had a fair number of requests to add custom voucher fields, make editing voucher templates easier, support foreign (e.g., Cyrillic) characters, and other refinements. However, the largest pain point with the plugin was related to voucher management. Since vouchers were tightly tied to the orders they were…

Moving WooCommerce Related Items to a Product Tab

Back in action this week with some tutorials scheduled! First up, we have an Ask SkyVerge question today from Rebecca: You’ve got a great article on how to move product upsells to a widget. But what about moving them to a tab? I’d love your ideas on how to make the tab disappear if there are no upsells. Definitely possible! By default, the upsells are shown on the product page below the product description: We…

WooCommerce Memberships: Add “View Subscription” Action to My Memberships

Here’s a quick question we’d gotten in a support thread: How can I add a link to “Cancel” a membership with it’s subscription to the “My Memberships” table? Unfortunately, adding a link to cancel both a membership + it’s associated subscription isn’t really straight-forward — this is why the “cancel” action is removed in the first place when a memberships is tied to a subscription. This way, cancelling the billing record is the only way…

Adding WooCommerce Memberships Restriction Notice Merge Tags

We got an interesting question this week from a developer: Is there a way to show Membership Plan Names in a “content restricted” notice instead of products to buy? In this case, the site wasn’t selling Memberships, but rather taking applications for them, so the plan names made more sense. This question can show us a couple interesting concepts today to look at: (1) creating a helper method to get plans that restrict a product,…

2016: Year in Review

Every year I find it super interesting to go back through an entire year’s worth of work to see what our team has accomplished, as you tend to forget some pretty big achievements as the year has gone on. It’s a great reminder of what you can get done in a year, along with seeing whether your longer term goals were realized or reinvented. 2016 saw a fair bit of growth and expansion for the…

Repeating a Fixed Date Membership with WooCommerce Memberships

Howdy and happy new year, folks! The new year partly inspired this Memberships post, as an year cycle ends, and it’s likely that many of you Memberships users might have set up membership plans that are a year long. But how about plans that are set to start exactly on the 1st of January of any given year? Since fixed dates memberships were introduced in version 1.7.0 there is the possibility in WooCommerce Memberships to…
