WooCommerce: Output a printable list of processing orders

screen-capture

Someone requested a way to print out a list of their processing orders for WooCommerce so I came up with a snippet to do so 🙂

The code below can be added as a page template in your theme. Once added to your template, just create a page in WordPress admin and assign it the “Print processing orders” page template.

Theres a check at the top of the page to only let admin users in, and when viewed the page will give you a nice list of processing orders which you can then print out.

Say hello to WooCommerce; simple, beautiful WordPress eCommerce

Today I’m proud to announce WooCommerce has arrived. Its been a tough week preparing it’s launch, and a busy month of development work but its all paid off. The WooThemes team, myself included, are incredibly excited by its completion and we hope it’s a hit with the WordPress community as a whole.

WooCommerce is an open source eCommerce plugin for WordPress with loads of cool features. Adding products, managing orders, setting up tax and shipping rates – WooCommerce makes it easy.

Whilst developing WooCommerce we focused on extending core WordPress functionality and keeping the UI consistant; this gives you an simple, easy to use, familiar admin interface which is a joy to use.

We made full use of WordPress custom post types, post type archives, and custom taxonomies making it both extendable and easy to theme. Theme developers will be relieved by its simplicity – after using several other eCommerce plugins in the past I know that it will be a breath of fresh air to many.

Alongside the release of the WooCommerce plugin we’ve also released three new themes (WooStore, Coquette and Wootique) as well as several child themes and extensions.

WooTique is our free WooCommerce theme

You can read more about WooCommerce on the WooThemes site. Be sure to check out WooCommerce on WordPress.org, and if your a developer (or a translator) why not say hi on Github and contribute to the project 🙂

Working for WooThemes

Its been a fantastic (and busy) month for me – september 1st I started my new job at WooThemes, arguably the most popular premium WordPress theme company in town, and I’m having a blast 🙂

At WooThemes I’ve been busy working in the new ‘WooLabs’ division alongside my pal James Koster. In the WooLabs we’re focusing on application style themes (like SupportPress), plugins (our nearly complete Mighty Menus plugin) and the highly anticipated WooCommerce plugin and themes.

So far I’m really enjoying my new role at Woo, and I’m ecstatic that they gave me the opportunity to work with them.

I’ll leave you with this teaser…looking forward to tuesday!

Getting comments of a certain post type

Whilst looking for a method to get comments from one of my post types in WordPress I stumbled across some undocumented parameters for the get_comments function. Simply state the name of the post type in the undocumented post_type parameter:

$comments = get_comments( array( 'number' => 5, 'status' => 'approve', 'post_status' => 'publish', 'post_type' => 'product' ) );

Very handy!

Sidebar Login: featured on WPCandy, updated and now on GitHub

Last week my Sidebar Login plugin was featured in WP Candy’s daily plugin series; I never expected it to be shown so it was a really nice surprise to see 🙂

Since then I’ve updated the plugin to version 2.3 with some cool new features (AJAX login for instance) and given it a new admin panel. You can also now find the project on GitHub if you’d like to contribute.
