Order Form for WooCommerce

I have a new plugin, and it’s my first premium plugin (i.e. it’s not free!) — Order Form for WooCommerce. I’ve had it in the works since late last year when I wrote to meet some requirements for a client’s website, and it’s taken me until now (late April) to release it to the world at large. Please have a play with it on the demo site. US $25 US $40, cheap! :)

Remove SKU from WooCommerce front end

If you need to have SKUs on products in WooCommerce, but don’t want to show them on the front end, you can’t just untick an option in the WooCommerce settings: you can either have and show SKUs or not have them at all.

WooCommerce quantity fields without spinners

WooCommerce uses HTML5 number fields for shop quantities, because they restrict the characters you can enter, and Safari on iPad/iPhone conveniently shows the number keyboard. Webkit and Opera/Presto add spinners (up/down arrows) to HTML5 number fields. WooCommerce also adds +/- buttons surrounding qty fields, because IE and Firefox don’t add spinners. WooCommerce then uses CSS to hide the spinners on Webkit: Continue reading WooCommerce quantity fields without spinners

On single product pages, you can add to cart with a quantity other than just one, and on the purchase page you can add to cart via AJAX without leaving the page.

WooCommerce doesn’t come with such things as part of their standard checkout form, but with a few handy hooks, it’s very easy to add.

How to hack a WordPress plugin that doesn’t have the filters you want

The best thing about WordPress, besides the fact that nearly anyone can edit a website built with it, is hooks. Filter and action hooks allow developers like me to customise a WordPress website in myriad ways. Many good plugins provide hooks too. But inevitably, you’ll run up against a problem where you’d like a plugin to have a hook that it just doesn’t have. You can ask the plugin author nicely to add that hook, and maybe they’ll add it sometime soon, maybe even on time for your deadline. But what if your deadline comes before they add it?
