I have a retail Website that uses Woocommerce. I also use a popular plugin called WordPress Popular Posts, that I use to display popular and most-viewed products in my sidebar.
People can click on those posts to see those products. It’s an important tie-in to my Woocommerce site.
As of Woocommerce 3.5.8, Woocommerce and WordPress Popular Posts were getting along just fine.
When I upgraded Woocommerce to 3.6.2, WordPress Popular Posts stopped working.
I reverted to Woocommerce 3.5.8 and it started working again.
I opened a ticket on the WordPress Popular Posts support page, and the developer did a fresh install of Woocommerce 3.6.2, and said that his plugin works just fine with it.
Of course, I didn’t do a fresh install; I did an upgrade to 3.6.2 from 3.5.8, and I know that upgrade had hundreds of changes.
The problem seems to have something to do with the <I>upgrade to 3.6.2,</I> rather than the installation of 3.6.2 itself.
If I revert to Woocommerce 3.5.8, WordPress Popular Posts works just fine. If I upgrade Woocommerce to 3.6.2, it stops working.
This is repeatable. Reversion fixes it, upgrading breaks it.
The WordPress Popular Posts developer suggested that I ask for help here.
Here’s the thread on the WordPress Popular Posts support page:
Suggestions? I can stick with 3.5.8, but I like to stay current.
