Mad Cow Customizer is a simple customizing solution for adding/changing content to a whole pile of WooCommerce hooks and even a few general WordPress ones too!
- Pick the tab that (should) get you to the customization options you are interested in.
- In many cases, you can use the image to find the location of the hook in which you would like to enter some text.
- Others are simply yes/no options.
- Enter your text or HTML in the text editor section.
- Click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom.
- Check your work on the public facing side of the site.
A stylesheet is included for the basic layout of the plugin, but will not impact the styling on the front-facing side of your site.
All areas of customization have been given their own class so you can update the CSS however you need to. Simply use your browser’s inspector to locate the classes for the specific div or container where your custom text/content has been added and add your own styling to the stylesheet in your child theme.
The “after cart” and “before product tabs” divs are both set to clear:all; for basic layout reasons. Those, and all others, can be over ridden in your own theme’s stylesheet.
Includes “Shop/Archive” , “Single Product”, “Cart”, “Checkout”, “Email”, “General WooCommerce Options”, “Custom Product Tabs”, and even a couple general WordPress features!
The Shop, Single Product, Cart, and Checkout tabs provide some of the most common hooks provided by WooCommerce. In general, you are adding your content to these sections of WooCommerce and it will display where specified by the hook. Screeshots are provided for reference.
The Emails tab allows you to add messages to the header area and footer areas and you can customize these messages based on Products and/or categories currently in the cart. These can be different for the header message and the footer message. (i.e. product A in cart, show this message in the header area. Category B in cart, show this message in the footer).
The General WooCommerce Options tab allows for the following:
* Remove Breadcrumbs from Single Product Page
* Remove Short Description
* Display the long description on single product page where the short description was
* Hide Description Tab
* Hide Reviews Tab
* Hide Additional Information Tab
* Automatically mark virtual orders as “Complete”
* Replace Related Products and UpSells text
* Remove specific categories from showing in the Related Products area
* Replace Cross Sells text
* Replace Add To Cart text on all products
* Replace Add To Cart text on specific products
* Replace Add To Cart text on products with specific categories
The WooCommerce Custom Tabs tab allows you to add three new custom tabs and add you own content and custom styles to those tabs while specifying their priority (the order in which they show up left to right).
The General WordPress tab allows you to change the text of the ellipsis as well as make it a link to the post. You can also adjust the length of the excerpt.
Here is a video with a detailed explanation of all the functionality.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Settings page is found under “WooCommerce – MCW Settings” or right from the plugins page.
Can I add html elements, styled text, and images to the content areas?
We utilize the wp_kses_post function to sanitize what is entered in those areas.
<p class="my-cool-class">My Awesome Paragraph Styled however I want</p> <img src="/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/cd_3_flat.jpg"> <div class="my-cool-div">My Awesome Stuff inside my div</div>
Will I lose my changes if I update
No. The data is stored safely in the database.
