WooCommerce is a powerful, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.
WooCommerce simply put is the bomb. It's such a comprehensively awesome ecommerce plugin for WordPress. Look no further, stick with the Woo!
So happy with this plugin. It works beautifully and they provide tons of hooks for customizing nearly everything!
At first I liked the idea of wordpress as a platform for ecommerce, found some tutorials, things were going smoothly.
The free theme I downloaded didn't work properly, and it went downhill from there. I can't even begin to guess how to troubleshoot this theme problem, because when I first installed woocommerce it threw a message about unsupported features in the latest version, and the theme was downloaded-latest version from their site?
It said I needed and alternative plugin, then it read on saying I might need ANOTHER plugin to convert old sidebars, at this point I could waste another 2 hours figuring it out or just not use this plugin.
My google results were nil in finding a post that contained the same problem, only someone refering them to post the problem in the support forum. Well, I eventually went to the support forum only to find it was for paying customers only. :sigh:
I respect the developers for having spent a lot of time and hard work on this project, but to think it is the top e-commerce plugin for a comunity as big as wordpress is just dissapointing.
I'd like to expect more out of the free blogging platform we've all come to love, but I guess wordpress just isn't a very viable e-commerce platform, let alone secure for that matter. When your hotfixing plugins with outher plugins, and backporting plugin framework updates, I think it's time to stick with a real ecommerce platform. :/
thanks for closing last topic and blocking the info people need relating to a fatal error, that really did not help did it
there is a bug in the update, so I am warning others not to update
thanks for being so helpful in resolving a topic and just closing it !!
this is error when update from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8
Fatal error: Call to a member function needs_shipping() on a non-object in public_html/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/gateways/cod/class-wc-gateway-cod.php on line 111
how can i revert back to woo 2.1.7
Great plugin, easy to use and work with lots of themes
For me. Woo Commerce is the best plug in to create online store.
It is customizable , Expandable, and easy in use.
excellent plugin, but cart widget is really bad. why dont you add simple EMPTY CART possibility ? or at least small X next to product so customer can easy remove item by item from cart... this is MUST HAVE in 2013 :)
PLEASE HELP , one question, in woocommerce/settings are choices:
(1) Show subcategories on category pages
(2) Show subcategories on the shop page
so this must be possible but i dont know where to change this. I would like to strictly define categories in two groups. If anyone opens category from group1 then are shown all products from all subcategories of chosen category. But if anyone opens other group there will be shown only subcategories (without product, untill they enter subcategory, but then they will be in group1)
sorry for bad english, if needed I will explain it again.
I'm developing very complex site with over 250 categories for my client and this is one of requirements... Thank you for your help in advance:)
I've used a number of ecommerce solutions over the years while making sites for other people, and woocommerce is by far my favorite. It seems the most contemporary and realistic when it comes to usability and ease of adaptation to different types of markets. I chose it to create my own quirky ecommerce art/gift store, even though I had free access to a number of more expensive solutions. Combined with the Mystile theme, it is clean looking, and doesn't distract from the products with a lot of unnecessary graphics. I highly recommend it.
F.Y.I. I'm having a great experience using this combination:
Theme: Mystile 1.2.2
It is very hard to change the look of widgets, shopping cart widget for instance without hacking the plugin.
