woocommerce is great, but the update policy is not yet good. I recommend to wait two or three weeks with every update after publishing. usually there is a second or third update inbetween a few hours. That is to insecure for a webshop. I hope, this policy will be fixed anytime.
In Woocommerce plugin When we modify order by increasing product quantity from backend It is not reflecting in product stock and also when we add new product from backend for the current order that products stock also not changing.I used auto restore plugin for automatically increasing order for cancelled order but for modifying order what will i do?
Its been a complete nigthmare just trying to upload ONE single product.
Images look terrible, short description is not saved, related products can't be disabled...
I can't believe you have to spent so much time reading and trying to find a solution for every little thing which is so obvious should be more simple.. I've spent hours and hours trying to find a solution for EVERY little detail, and many of the things I've tried do not work, I've tried editing CSS; functions php, etc.. FOUR days and still can't get ONE single product to look as I want it..
It's a nigthmare
I have an issue to report (i am sure a few people have already brought this to you attention)
When I installed woocommerce, my WP signed out and forced http>>https (Chrome only). All the other browsers render everything fine.
I opened up a few other websites and found they are also broken.
My site >> aliwalshoalscubadiving.com (to see please open in Chrome)
Another site >> http://dermasolutions.co.uk/ - also broken..
Any solutions? Its a major concern because Chrome has a HUGE user base.
Positive: Woo does great in organic search and works well on a dedicated server with lots of resources. Many plugin add-ons expanding functionality. Woo keeps software updated!
Negative: Does not run well on cheap shared Gator Daddy cloud hosts.
Needs plenty of memory and cpu to run good.
Support is awful. If you pay for premium plugins you will discover licenses expire. It's like loaning tools out and having to buy them all over again. Woo is the worst I have ever seen for support. Nothing like Envato Market that tracks all your licenses and provides some support.
Theme: Catch Responsive
You'd think Woocommerce would have this figured out by now. I've come across this problem with several different themes (Woocommerce compatible and not) and there's no real help in the Woocommerce Support forum or knowledge base. They do have instructions on setting your product image size (resolution) to match that of your theme—but there is no information or accommodation for changing the size of the product feature image as it displays on the single product page.
The css is set to width: 100% height: auto —which will work fine if you plan ahead and use images for products set to be the size you want them to show up as.
The confusion starts when your product image is much larger than what you want it to display at and you expect the plugin (or your theme) to resize it automatically —not to mention responsively.
So be forewarned, when you choose product image make sure the image's full size is the size you want it to display at on your product page. This goes for "Related Products" images also. You might expect these RP images to be a thumbnail size but they're not —they also get displayed at 100% full size. Maybe I missed this information in the store setup instructions but I don't remember seeing anything like it mentioned. You'd think a FAQ on the subject would be readily available but it's not. There's a ton of support requests all over the WP.org and WooCom forums without competent answers.
Seems like a better, more professional solution would be to build into the plugin the ability to adjust the displayed feature image size on the product page within the woocommerce admin panel.
As ubiquitously used as WooCom is, I'd expect better support (free support). That's the only peeve I have with the plugin, it is otherwise excellent in its function and features.
Great to have a free version of this product but you do need lots of add-ons to get it to work.
It would be great if it just needed one paid for add-on so you could use the cart.
even with paid for add-ons you still need to manually copy and paste each order address into a word doc to print address labels.
I would like a simple paid for version with the basics you need to have a working site.
with the update my themes are broken. developer says that's our problem and they don't care.
my concern is this plugin is almost too widely used given, they make changes and do not necessarily consider other 3rd party integration.
so on the one hand, they are not responsible for being able to integrate.
on the other hand...that;s why everyone uses the plugin...because it integrates with their themes.
IF i had a true choice i wouldn't even use it at this point. tired of working hours and days only to find it's impossible to load the actual shop page.
I don't like obliged rating before I can further use the plugin
Awesome plugin! Support could be better with livechat.
