Woocommerce Support Declaration in Third Party Theme

Woocommerce Support is very significant after WooCommerce 3.3.0 – in the event that your theme doesn’t contain this in your functions.php file, there’s a decent opportunity any Woocommerce templates you add to/wp-content/[your-theme]/woocommerce/won’t be loaded. This implies you’ll lose all your customizations on update.

In case you have installed WordPress and Woocommerce and your theme does not say anywhere that it has Woocommerce support activated, you will get a message in the backend above that says something as per “your theme doesn’t have woocommerce support activated … “. This is not good for newer versions as it means your woocommerce templates will probably be ignored.

 

Declare Basic Woocommerce Support

You can declare the basic Woocommerce Support (without settings) by adding the following code to your functions.php file:

function arrow_design_mytheme_add_woocommerce_support() {
add_theme_support( 'woocommerce' );
add_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-zoom' );
add_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-lightbox' );
add_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-slider' );
} 
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'arrow_design_mytheme_add_woocommerce_support' );

Declare Advanced Woocommerce Support

To declare advanced Woocommerce Support with settings, use this code:

function arrow_design_add_advanced_woocommerce_support() {
add_theme_support( 'woocommerce', array(
'thumbnail_image_width' => 150,
'single_image_width' => 300,

'product_grid' => array(
'default_rows' => 3,
'min_rows' => 2,
'max_rows' => 8,
'default_columns' => 4,
'min_columns' => 2,
'max_columns' => 5,
),
) );
}
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'arrow_design_add_advanced_woocommerce_support' );
