Product reviews

Reviews are vital functionality for any store. Customers trust you more by reading other people’s feedback about purchased products. WooCommerce has a very basic functionality for this by default. So we extended this with a lot of new possibilities to make it work as on the most popular e-commerce websites. This update includes such features as Pros and Cons, rating criteria, filtering and sorting, and new styles. You can see how it looks live on our demo.

Read more about all the options in our documentation here.

Product gallery video

It is a well-known fact that video gives much more information about the product than image and customers make purchase decisions faster after watching it. Now our theme supports multiple videos added directly to the gallery on the single product page. You can use YouTube,  Vimeo as well as self-hosted videos. See how it works here

Sticky vertical navigation

Quick and understandable navigation is a very important part of any website. It helps visitors find things they are looking for easily. WoodMart has different types of navigation menus that can be placed in the header, sidebar, footer, and mobile header. In this update, we added another way to display your categories or any other links that are always on the screen. It is a sticky vertical bar that expands when you move your mouse over it or click on a special button in the header. See how it looks live on our demo.

Image gallery on product hover

If you don’t want to make your customers spend more time clicking on each product and back just to see their images you can take a look at our new option. It adds special navigation to quickly view all the product images right from the shop page. Your customers will browse your catalogs and purchase products faster. See on the demo.

Wishlists for administrators

We continue adding new options to our built-in wishlist module. Our theme’s wishlists feature now can be useful not only for the customers but for administrators as well. You as a store owner can now view the list of all the customers wishlists and analyze them. Also, you can view the list of most popular products which are most frequently added to your customers wishlists.

Important notes and breaking changes

We know that updates that change previously configured or customized parts of the website are very unpleasant and always struggle to avoid this. But there are some situations when we want to optimize and simplify certain parts of the website to improve the performance and usability that can’t be done without such changes. This update includes only a few small adjustments that may require your attention after this update.

Accent buttons

WoodMart used to have three main categories for buttons in Theme Settings: default, accent, and shop buttons. But as we know, in 99% of situations users don’t make accent and shop buttons look different since they usually have the same priority on the website. That is why we merged these two groups into one called “Accent buttons”. So if you see some buttons change their style after the update you may need to adjust them in Theme Settings -> Styles & Colors -> Buttons.

Blog design “Meta on image”

Our “Meta on image” blog design now has options “Blog style” and “Shadow”. And after adding these options your old style may now look with backougrnd and padding. If you don’t like this style you can switch to the “Flat” style in Theme Settings -> Blog -> Blog archive.

WPBakery stretch row with CSS

We used to enable WPBakery built-in option to stretch the row that works with JS. Now we have our own option for this that works with CSS which is simpler and faster. Take into account that if you want to use our new “Sticky navigation” you need to use our new stretch row option to make all spaces look correct.

Vertical thumbnails gallery for product

We redesigned and optimized our vertical thumbnails gallery on the product page. Now you can control a number of thumbnails per view in Theme Settings. Take into account that according to the new design, your thumbnail gallery will always have the same height as the main featured images. And because of that, your thumbnails might be cropped in certain circumstances. If you don’t like this behavior, you can switch to the old view via Theme Settings -> Single product -> Images -> Thumbnails per slide -> switch to “Default”.
