Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Validate woocommerce cart depending on shop archive page

  • Resolved giuls22


    Is it possible to validate the woocommerce cart with woocommerce_add_to_cart_validation based on the unique shop archive page the user is currently on? I am adding to the cart via ajax.


    IF user is on Page strongshop AND max item count is 20…apply rule.
    IF user is on Page smallshop AND max item count is 10….apply rule.

    Below code works when the is_page constraints are removed:

    // remove the redirect
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_cart_redirect_after_error', '__return_false'); 
    add_action( 'woocommerce_add_to_cart_validation', 'restrict_only_one_item_in_cart' );
     function restrict_only_one_item_in_cart($cart_item_data) {
       global $woocommerce;
       $item_count = $woocommerce->cart->cart_contents_count;
       if((is_page('strongshop') || is_page('strongshopmobile')) && $item_count >= 20){
          return false;
       return $cart_item_data;

    This is a fairly complex development topic. Iā€™m going to leave it open for a bit to see if anyone is able to chime in to help you out.

    I can also recommend the Advanced WooCommerce group on Facebook ( for more development-oriented questions.

    @giuls22 It looks like you are using woocommerce_add_to_cart_validation as an action when it is actually a filter. If this is being called via AJAX (which is when the filter is applied at one point) it will not work because the AJAX call is not on a page.

    To test this out, I would recommend adding this to your function:

    global $wp_query;
    error_log( print_r( $wp_query, true ) );

    Then review what is output in your debug.log, as long as debugging is on, and see if a page is listed in the query.

    @jessepearson Where can I view the output of the debug log? Is it via the developer functionality within the browser?

    @giuls22 I recommend reviewing this whole page about debugging in WordPress:

    There is an example on the page that can be copied and pasted, you can use everything in the example except the last part about script debugging.

    Once debugging and logging is turned on, then everything will be logged to debug.log in your /wp-content/ folder.
