Get Woocommerce Current Product Category In Single Product Page

Get Woocommerce Current Product Category In Single Product Page

First of all, Woocommerce products are stored on WordPress as custom post type (CPT) named 'product'. The product categories are custom taxonomy named 'product_cat'. Let's say you want to show a simple line of text that tells your visitors the shipping flat rate of a product, and you have different rates for different product categories. For an example, you have two different product categories in your shop, which you named them as tshirts and hoodies. Tshirts have shipping flat rate of $10.00 while hoodies have flat rate of $15.00. This is how you check for current product category (either tshirts or hoodies) on a single product page. This is used inside the loop. That's it!...

How To Override Buddypress Template Files

How To Override Buddypress Template Files

With Woocommerce, you override Woocommerce's default template files by creating a directory called 'woocommerce' inside your WordPress theme folder and placing all the template files inside that folder (preserving directories structure).

ThemeChilly’s HostChilly V3 Theme Review

ThemeChilly’s HostChilly V3 Theme Review

Theme being reviewed: a WordPress theme named HostChilly V3 by ThemeChilly. The theme was designed for web hosting companies (or affiliates alike) who want to use WordPress as a platform to sell their hosting. Pro's: Many useful shortcodes, such as pricing tables, very suitable for web hosts and affiliates. Responsive layout. Great features. Nice, good looking theme. Many options in the backend (if you consider that a pro, some people don't). Con's: Not all features in the theme are compatible with the latest WordPress (version 4.0 and above). In order for you to have all features working nicely, you need to use older version of WordPress, which is not recommended at all. Users need to consider using SSL with the theme if used with older version of WordPress. Theme demo on ThemeChilly's website for this theme is running on an old version of WordPress, so they hide the version and put the site on SSL to tighten security. We recommend instead: Anything not on...
