Most basic customisation seems impossible
I’m trying unsuccessfully to create the most simple (or so I thought) edits within my woocommerce pages and have spent hours looking for resources online only to come up empty. All I’m trying to do is modify the layout of single product pages, and I have to say it is, genuinely, not possible to do this!
There’s loads of replies to questions like this online, here on wp.org, over on the wcdocs wiki, and dotted around the net, with the same basic suggestion: ‘Use the hooks. It’s easy. Read about them here’. Well I have to say that’s wrong – it ISN’T ‘easy’. In fact its downright impossible. Most of them point to here which a MASSIVE list of hooks, but no info on what any of them actually do. Or how to use them. In fairness there’s a link on that page to here, which describes adding a hook into functions.php.
There’s no suggestion of what you might actually input in the space labelled //your code, just an instruction of how to insert it. Guys, no offence and all that, but that is NOT a tutorial on how to add hooks.
Besides, I’m not trying to ADD anything, I only went as far as looking at hooks because I lost the will to live trying to find a template file to edit. Surely all the ‘hooks’ I might need are ALREADY listed, since the single product pages work fine, they just LOOK a mess.
I’m using Suffusion theme (which is a pretty complicated affair in its own right and I’ve managed to conquer that, so I reckon I’m okay with WP editing) and my product page has a mahoosive picture left aligned, a ‘summary’ block to the right, and a description underneath. All I’ve been trying to do is remove the image entirely, and place the summary block alongside the description. So far I’ve been at it around fourteen HOURS, and I’m no nearer a solution than when I started! Surely this isn’t how its supposed to be!?
