  • Resolved jwjo


    Hi there,

    I am basically trying to change the ‘Read more’ button text on the Shop page (Category page) when an item is out of stock to ‘Join the waitlist’ instead.

    However, as I have a Custom Fields plugin installed as well, it seems to change the button text to ‘View Product’.

    I already have a snippet below, which I’ve tested and does work. However, the moment I activate the Custom Fields plugin, it seems to get a higher priority and will display the button text as ‘View Product’.

    // For all products 
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'product_single_add_to_cart_text_filter_callback', 100, 2 );
    function product_single_add_to_cart_text_filter_callback( $button_text, $product ) {
        if( ! $product->is_in_stock() ) {
            $button_text = __("Join the waitlist", "woocommerce");
        return $button_text;

    Is there any way or workaround where I can force the snippet to have a higher priority than the plugin so that the ‘Join the waitlist’ text can be displayed instead?

    I am a complete rookie and don’t really have any idea what I’m doing. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

    Kind regards,

    Hi E,

    You can increase the priority of an action hook by increasing the number in the third argument to the add_filter function call:

    add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'product_single_add_to_cart_text_filter_callback', 10000, 2 );

    Additionally, I would recommend using an anonymous function instead of a named function like so:

    add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', function ( $button_text, $product ) {
    	if ( ! $product->is_in_stock() ) {
    		$button_text = __( 'Join the waitlist', 'woocommerce' );
    	return $button_text;
    }, 10000, 2 );
