WoodMart 7.0 update

We continue to develop and improve our most advanced WooCommerce theme are and happy to announce a new WoodMart 7.0 update. Our team was working primarily on two directions: a new user-oriented interface in the dashboard and powerful eCommerce add-ons. It has a lot of new features, refactoring, and bug fixes but we did our best to prevent most breaking changes after the update. Now let’s review all the main features of the new version.

Theme Settings and Dashboard redesign

The process of creation and development of our theme for all 5 years of its existence includes many iterations in the creation of new functions and options. This led to some inconsistencies between different parts of our theme interfaces. And because of that, it was a bit difficult for our users to find and understand certain aspects of our theme. Therefore, we set ourselves the task of unifying most of our interfaces in the dashboard, including Theme Settings, Dummy Content (now Prebuilt Websites), Header builder, custom post types, WoodMart slider, and others. Now, most of the theme sections are organized with one menu so you can easily navigate between them. 

Our new UI looks more natively to general WordPress style guides. Usually, most of the themes and plugins try to brand their settings pages to be unique. And as a result, the WordPress dashboard gets messy and very hard to comprehend. So we are sure that making the design more WordPress-oriented will help our customers to master WoodMart better and achieve their goals faster.

Most of our options now have descriptive tooltips with images and videos that demonstrate how the particular option works. Now you don’t need to guess and can quickly understand if you need to enable this option or not.

And we are excited to show you how our new interface now supports WordPress Dashboard color schemes. Here is a short video

We also reorganized and grouped most of our Theme Settings, enhanced the slider interface, redesigned the dummy content section and did a lot of other small improvements that we hope you will be pleased to see in our new update.

Theme Settings backups

Now you can back up your Theme Settings values before experiencing new features much easier. Moreover, these backups will be made automatically from time to time. So it will save you in situations when you do something wrong with the settings or accidentally reset them. 

Frequently bought together

Our strategy is to develop the most advanced eCommerce WordPress theme that doesn’t require any additional plugins. So WoodMart is an all-in-one tool that will take your online store to a high level. And a part of our plan was this high-demanded option to show frequently bought together bundles and increase sales. 

Now you can select a number of products that your customers can purchase as a bundle and get some additional discounts. For example, you sell a mobile phone and promote some cases or cables that will have additional discounts when purchased together. It is a powerful feature that increases conversion.

Create these bundles in the WordPress dashboard -> Products -> Frequently Bought Together. Then, assign them to desired products via Dashboard -> Products -> Edit product.

Demo example

Linked Variations

The next improvement to your store product management and organization is our Linked Variations function. Now you can create separate simple products and then group them into one bundle by a common attribute. For example, you can create three separate phones with different memory sizes: iPhone 64GB, iPhone 128GB, and iPhone 256GB. After grouping them, all of these products will have swatches buttons with memory sizes similar to the variable product. But the benefit there is that each of these products will be shown on the catalog page. And also, when you click on the memory button, you will be redirected to a separate product page. Create these bundles in Dashboard -> Products -> Linked variations.

Demo example

Show variations as products

This feature is similar to the previous one but works in an opposite way. Instead of creating simple products and linking them between each other, you can create a variable product, and then all its variations will be shown on the catalog page as a separate product. But all of these products will lead to the parent variable product when you click on it. So there will not be any changes on the product page but you will be able to quickly populate your catalog mode with all the variations.

Multiple Wishlists

Wishlists are an essential part of any online store. Customers can save products they are interested in for further purchase. And we are proud of the fact that we have developed this feature as a part of our theme so WoodMart users don’t need to install any bloated plugins for this. And that is why we are working on extending this important part of our theme. In this update, we introduce a multiple wishlists functionality. Now customers can create as many wishlists as they need and organize interesting products into categories. 

In addition to this, now store owners can send promotional emails to customers who have products on their wishlists that are back in stock or have discounts. And you don’t need any plugins for this since everything is built-in in our theme.

Compare by category

Yes, our compare module has a new improvement as well. For large stores with different categories like notebooks, TVs, mobile phones and etc. it is necessary to split the compare page into categories. Customers don’t need to compare a TV with a mobile phone or notebook with a power adapter. And when you turn on our new option, all these products will be as a part of different compare tables grouped by their categories.

Product swatches improvements and refactoring

Another prominent feature that comes with our theme is our variation swatches buttons. It is very popular option among users of our theme and we got a huge amount of requests to customize these swatches design to some specific niche. People usually ask to change the size, form, and style of these buttons so this task always required additional CSS adjustments. We took into account all the feedbacks and added such customization options to product attributes options. In most cases, custom CSS will not be longer needed since you can combine all the styles and shapes to get the desired look and feel.


Rounding (adding border-radius property to elements) was also highly-demanded by our community. Websites with rounded images and give users feel of safety and looks more friendly. More and more modern websites use rounded corners. That is why adapted global rounding option to all our elements. It means that you can enable this option in our Theme Settings once and all suitable parts of the website will become rounded. In addition to this, you can enable these options for particular elements only including products, categories, banners, info boxes etc.
