Create a member home page with Memberships blocks

Here’s an Ask SkyVerge question we’ve heard from lots of Memberships users: When a member logs in, how can I redirect them to a custom member home page instead of the WooCommerce account page? This has been a popular request for some time, but wasn’t feasible for us to address since members can belong to multiple plans. How would Memberships know which page to send a user to when they belonged to multiple plans? It’d…

How can I require customers apply for a membership and approve their access?

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. ????

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. Sure thing — there are hooks that will let us hook into Social Login just before it creates an account to stop…

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.

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.
