How Do I Find My WooCommerce Code?

Last updated on January 21, 2023 @ 2:07 pm

Are you looking to add some customization to your WooCommerce store? If so, you’ll need to access your WooCommerce code. In this article, we’ll show you how to find your WooCommerce code.

When it comes to adding customization to your WooCommerce store, there are two main ways to do it:

  • Via the WordPress Customizer: If you want to add simple customization (such as changing colors or font), then the WordPress Customizer is the way to go. You can access the Customizer by going to Appearance > Customize from the left sidebar of your WordPress dashboard.
  • By Editing Your Code: For more complex customization (such as adding new features or changing existing functionality), you’ll need to edit your code.The easiest way to do this is by using a child theme. A child theme is a separate theme that inherits all the functionality of the parent theme (in this case, WooCommerce). This allows you to make changes to your code without affecting the parent theme.

To create a child theme, you first need to create a new folder in your /wp-content/themes/ directory. Then, you need to create a .css file and a .js file in that folder. You can name these files anything you want, but we recommend using the name of the parent theme followed by “-child” (e.g., woocommerce-child.css) so that it’s clear which theme is the child theme.

Once you’ve created these files, you need to add the following code to the .css file:

PRO TIP: If you are looking for your WooCommerce code, be warned that it is not easily found. The code is hidden away in the depths of the WooCommerce website, and even then it is not always easy to find. We recommend that you use a search engine to find your code, as this will usually be the quickest and easiest way to find it.
.parent-theme {
   /* Your CSS goes here */

Replace “parent-theme” with the name of the parent theme (e., “woocommerce”). This will ensure that your CSS only affects the child theme and not the parent theme.

Now that you have a child theme set up, you can start adding code snippets to it. To do this, simply copy and paste the code snippets into your child theme’s .js. file.
