WooCommerce: Exclude Hidden Products from Mini-Cart Counter

When you add a hidden product to Cart, either manually or programmatically, this will be displayed in the Cart, Checkout and Order details pages (I’m not sure why a hidden product behaves like that… but thankfully you can hide hidden products from the Cart/Checkout/Order page with this snippet).

Problem is, even if you hide hidden products from the Cart page, the “Mini-Cart” product counter icon or text (it depends on your theme) will still count them as products (see the screenshot below). So the question is: in conjunction with the snippet aforementioned, how do I exclude hidden products from being counted in the “menu cart” (also called Mini-Cart Widget)?

PHP Snippet: Don’t Count Hidden Products @ WooCommerce Mini-Cart Widget

// PLEASE NOTE: EMPTY THE CART BEFORE TESTING

add_filter( 'woocommerce_cart_contents_count', 'bbloomer_exclude_hidden_minicart_counter' );

function bbloomer_exclude_hidden_minicart_counter( $quantity ) {
  $hidden = 0;
  foreach( WC()->cart->get_cart() as $cart_item ) {
	 $product = $cart_item['data'];
	 if ( $product->get_catalog_visibility() == 'hidden' ) $hidden += $cart_item['quantity'];
  }
  $quantity -= $hidden;
  return $quantity;
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.
