WooCommerce is a powerful, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.
WC has a long-standing problem of not working properly with WP 'Pretty Permalinks,' generating 404s for product pages if *their* chosen *defaults* are not used. Much information and misinformation about this can be found via Google.
WooThemes shows absolutely NO interest in fixing this.
Therefore a one (1) is the only reasonable rating to offer.
Thank you, Tom
only problems. deleting posts. no support
I was originally a big fan of woocommerce and have purchased quite a few premium plugins and themes. I cannot shake the feeling, however, that in the last couple of months, they really lost their momentum. House cleaning (2.1) is fine, but breaking a lot of people's sites/pages with the seemingly useless and badly communicated switch to endpoints makes me not want to recommend Wooc anymore. And please reduce the number of updates.
On second thought, I am revising my rating down to 1 Star. Obviously, there is no leadership in the company, or it is asleep at the wheel. The bugs just compound everywhere you look and instead of adressing them, unimportant stuff gets changed around all the time (like name changes, etc.)
If you have products with large number of variations WooCommerce works really bad.
Where are all those beautiful settings I used to see int WooCommerce -> Settings -> Pages ? The changes made are really confusing.
thanks a lot
After the update my site is totally messed up and it just feels like no no reason trying to solve it. Seriously, I really don't now in what end to start trying to fix this.
WooCommerce is initially a very attractive plugin, but I discovered that unless you buy a plugin or a theme from WooThemes you cant access their support forum. More Premium than Freemium.
This just leaves the WordPress Plugin Support forum. Scrolling through reveals the extent of unanswered questions. I appreciate lots are duplicates or are from noobs (like myself) but I think someone from WooThemes should make a concerted effort to answer the backlog, because at the moment answers seem to be sporadic and at the charity of others. i.e. you've got from a slim to no chance of getting an answer to your question.

They were done for a 3 day weekend last weekend, and closed the support desk (you can't send in support tickets). I finally got my support ticket submitted on Monday, they replied on Friday. I responded to them almost immediately, then I find out that they closed the support desk for ANOTHER 3 DAY WEEKEND! So my issue, that I've been having since Saturday won't be fixed until AT LEAST next Monday. THAT'S 10 DAYS OF NO SUPPORT TO A COMPANY THAT I PAY (a theme and 3 plug-ins)!. Run. Find something else. WooCommerce is probably the worst plugin that I've ever gotten involved in. They've stopped caring where the money comes from, just that it comes in.
