What if I do not set any colors under `WooCommerce > Settings > Order Note Colors` tab?

Then WooCommerce default order note color will be used.

Will this plugin work for custom order status too?


Why it does not work for versions below WooCommerce 2.5

WooCommerce has introduced a filter for order note classes in 2.5 So the plugin would work for WooCommerce 2.5 and above.

What if I accidentally disable the plugin?

No worries – The order note colors will fall back to WooCommerce default colors. Also the plugin does not delete the saved colors on deactivation or deletion. So if you re-activate it or re-install it, you get your settings back.

Something is not working – what do I do?

Sorry about that! Please open a Github Issue or post to this plugin’s Support section.

Update: This plugin is no longer working. It does not change the color of the notes. I stumbled across this plugin looking for something else. I never would have thought about changing the color of the order notes. What a pleasant surprise! It's super easy to setup and use. Thank you so much!
