WooCommerce Cart Count Shortcode

Description

Looking for a flexible way to display items in your site’s WooCommerce cart? Look no further! This plugin allows you to insert a shortcode anywhere on your site that generates an a href link.

Parameters:

  • icon – Any Font Awesome icon. Most of the time you’ll want to use shopping-cart or shopping-basket.
  • empty_cart_text – The text to display when there are zero items in the cart. You may want this to default to “Shop”.
  • items_in_cart_text – The text to display when there are one or more items in the cart. You may want this to default to “Cart”.
  • total_text – The text to display when there are one or more items in the cart. You may want this to default to “Total:”.
  • show_items – Enter “true/false” to show/hide items in the cart in parentheses. The item count will only show when there are one or more items in the cart.
  • custom_css – Any custom CSS you’d like to add to the link.
  • show_total – Enter “true/false” to show/hide total price in the cart

Examples:

  • [cart_button]
  • [cart_button icon="basket"]
  • [cart_button show_items="true"]
  • [cart_button show_items="true" show_total="true"]
  • [cart_button show_items="true" show_total="true" total_text="Total Price:"]
  • [cart_button show_items="false" items_in_cart_text="Cart"]
  • [cart_button show_items="true" empty_cart_text="Store"]
  • [cart_button items_in_cart_text="Cart" custom_css="custom"]

Reviews

Works good

It works fine with WC 3.5.2 and WP 5, only thing it needs is an ajax update.

Great plugin

I was looking for something like this, and tried code examples that did not work, this plugin saved time and make what I needed

Simple and effective, with good support

Does exactly what I need it to do, with simple configurations for icons and language to show when cart is empty or full.

Had a minor issue (that was actually due to a misconfiguration of the Shortcodes in Menu plugin) that the plugin developer was very helpful in assisting to resolve.

Good, but needs ajax support

This plugin is good, however, it lacks support for ajax add to cart.

When ajax add to cart is enabled on woocommerce the items and total values for the plugin are not updated.
