Storage

Customer and order exports for any server environment

Today I am excited to share some improvements that have just been released for our CSV Export and XML Export plugins! The big ticket item for these releases is a refactor of the way that exports are stored. You won’t see any visible differences in these latest changes, but if you look under the hood, you’ll see that these plugins just got a major upgrade. ???? Disclaimer This post may get a bit technical, so go…

Adding Columns to the WooCommerce My Orders List

Time to start with our first Ask SkyVerge question of 2018 🙂 This question is from Houdayer: Is there a way to add shipping information in the table at MyAccount > Orders? Sure thing! We’re looking at the “Orders” menu in the my account page currently, which shows order number, date, status, total, and actions by default: The woocommerce_my_account_my_orders_columns filter lets us add or adjust the columns included in this list, so we can add…

Blocking WooCommerce Social Login Registration

We’ve got an Ask SkyVerge question today from Jonathan that’s a neat usage of Social Login hooks: Is there a way to only allow social login for people who have an account already? Meaning we don’t want to create an account for them automatically since they should purchase a memberships to log in.

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,…

Screen ID checks with WordPress Submenu Pages

Chances are if you’ve read our series on adding plugin settings to WooCommerce, you’re using an existing WooCommerce settings page or new settings tab to add any required configuration options for your plugin. If you have a more complex plugin who’s data will be accessed very often (such as Memberships or Subscriptions), you may even be adding a new submenu with a custom settings or usage page for your plugin. However, we’ve run into any…

Get all WooCommerce Refunded orders

I ran into an interesting problem recently for a consulting project where the client needed to know what orders have had refunds processed in WooCommerce. While helping out with this problem, I found that there isn’t a great way to get all refunded orders at once, only to get refunds for a particular order. There are a couple ways you could approach this issue. Let’s start with the couple methods they’d tried first: Get all…

Disable Repeat WooCommerce Purchases for a Product Category

We previously wrote up a tutorial on preventing repeat purchases for a particular WooCommerce product, or for any product in your store. However, based on the comments there, some merchants wanted to disable repeat WooCommerce purchases for a set of products, but not all products. In order to do so, you could use a product category to check whether repeat purchases should be allowed or not. This would let you group all products that shouldn’t…

Hide WooCommerce Product Reviews Until Purchase

We’ve got an Ask SkyVerge questions queued up for today from Sam: Is there a way to display the WooCommerce review tab only for customers who bought the product? That way users who never bought the product will not be able to see the review tab. Product reviews are one of the most important indicators of social proof for an eCommerce site, and they’re an excellent tool to help customers make purchasing decisions and learn…
