WooCommerce Admin Bar Addition

This plugin adds useful admin links and massive resources for the WooCommerce Shop Plugin to the WordPress Toolbar / Admin Bar.

Installation Steps

  1. Installing alternatives:
    • via Admin Dashboard: Go to 'Plugins > Add New', search for "WooCommerce Admin Bar Addition", click "install"
    • OR via direct ZIP upload: Upload the ZIP package via 'Plugins > Add New > Upload' in your WP Admin
    • OR via FTP upload: Upload woocommerce-admin-bar-addition folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Look at your toolbar / admin bar and enjoy using the new links there :)
  4. Go and manage your shop - good luck with sales :)


  • Technically speaking this plugin runs also without WooCommerce 2.x being active
  • BUT: it really makes no sense to use it without WooCommerce 2.x!
  • WordPress 3.6 or higher, but latest version always recommended!
  • WooCommerce branch compat: As of this plugin version 2.7.0 or higher: Only WooCommerce v2.1.0 or higher, and legacy branch 2.0.x are supported! So please update your installs!

Note: This plugin has NO settings page because I believe it's just not neccessarry. All customizing could be done via action hooks, filters, constants and regular WordPress user roles & capabilities (see "Other Notes" section here). As the plugin is indended for a shop manager/ admin/ webmaster use that's the way to go. This way we can save the overhaul of an options panel/settings page, additional database requests, uninstall routines and such. End result: a lightweight system that just works and saves clicks & time :-).

Multisite install: Yes, it's fully compatible but have a look in the FAQ section here for more info :)

Own translation/wording: For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/wcaba/ (just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that, just use a language file like wcaba-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the tools on "Other Notes").

Requires: 3.6 plus WooCommerce 2.x or higher
Compatible up to: 3.8.13
