Creating WooCommerce pages

It’s been quite a number of months since my last blog post and it’s now January, 2019! plus I wanted to try out the new WordPress Editor 🤓

As Happiness Engineer’s, we have the opportunity to temporarily rotate to another sub-division (or team) for around three months (my rotation ended last December). It was challenging and fun at the same time and for me, I was on Team Tatooine that provides support specifically for WooCommerce customers.

There were quite a number of TIL’s (Today I Learned) throughout the three months but for now, I’d like to share a few ways on how to create the necessary WooCommerce pages (eg. Shop, Cart, Checkout) on your WordPress site.

Setup wizard

If you happen to skip over the Wizard Setup (after installing and activating WooCommerce), you can re-run the Wizard as seen here:

To access the Setup wizard, navigate to WooCommerce > Settings then click on ‘Screen Options‘ located on the top right corner of the page screen, then click ‘Setup wizard‘.

Tools > Create pages

Another way, is to let WooCommerce create those pages for you via WooCommerce > Status > Tools then click on ‘Create pages‘ as seen below:

Shortcodes

Or lastly, you can manually create your WooCommerce pages by using the following shortcodes on separate pages:

[woocommerce_cart] – shows the cart page
[woocommerce_checkout] – shows the checkout page
[woocommerce_my_account] – shows the user account page
[woocommerce_order_tracking] – shows the order tracking form

Keep in mind, you’ll want to create a ‘Shop’ page first then assign your ‘Shop’ page within WooCommerce > Settings > Products (General tab) as seen below:
