WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field (PHP)

A client of mine runs online courses for acupuncturists via Sensei LMS. US Law requires an “Acupuncture Registration Number” in order for students to get the final online certificate. So, this task was a little bit more complex than usual as it had two major issues:

1) This new checkout field does not belong to billing or shipping (order information), but instead it’s a unique user field that needs to be saved and retrieved multiple times if necessary

2) This field does need to be shown at checkout only if a certain product category is in the cart (“online courses”, as opposed to e.g. “books”)

So, here’s how you do it – hope it helps you understand that anything is possible via PHP! Continue reading WooCommerce: How to Add a Custom Checkout Field (PHP)

WooCommerce: Limit Shipping to Only One State

Today’s snippet has been widely requested by many readers, clients and WooCommerce fans. We already saw in the past how to Limit State Dropdowns to One State Only (for both Shipping & Billing) and How to Sell to one State only (Billing).

This time, I’ve reached out to Diego Zanella, a WooCommerce genius who is also the author of the Aelia Currency Switcher plugin for WooCommerce. Continue reading WooCommerce: Limit Shipping to Only One State

WooCommerce and Divi: how to override !important CSS

I am a big fan of Elegant Themes, but a lot of CSS styles (mainly in Divi) contain “!important” in order to override WooCommerce styles when using the two in a combo. Now, the big problem is that we can’t override !important with another !important. Divi will win. But no matter whether Divi has been developed in a good or not so good way, there is something we can do. (NOTE: using !important is a horrible thing in CSS. Use at your own risk) Continue reading WooCommerce and Divi: how to override !important CSS
