WooCommerce – Stacked Product Layout ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

By default, WooCommerce places single-product summaries right next to the main product image / thumbnails section, which is ideal for displaying product descriptions, prices and meta. Add-to-cart form content is normally displayed inside the single-product summary, too, which works well when displaying Simple or Variable product forms.

However, this layout is not particularly suitable for complex product types, such as Product Bundles, which require much more space for their add-to-cart form content.

If you are having issues with very narrow or squeezed product add-to-cart forms, you can use this plugin to move the add-to-cart form under the product image and summary section, leaving the full page width available for the form content of your Bundles.

The plugin adds a Force Stacked Layout option under the WooCommerce Settings > Products > Display section, where you can select which product types should use the full-width, stacked layout.

WooCommerce – Subscribe All the Things ↑ Back to top

Download this mini-extension.

Subscribe All The Things is a free mini-extension for WooCommerce Subscriptions that provides experimental subscriptions support for non-subscription product types. It allows you to attach subscription options to Simple products, Variable products, Composite Products, Product Bundles and Mix ‘n Match Products, and includes a neat feature: The ability to switch any product from a one-time purchase to a subscription, even after is has been added in the cart.

The code is in beta phase and is already publicly available for testing, feedback and contributions. For details, please refer to this post.

Note: Please avoid using Subscribe All The Things on production websites. The plugin is still in beta phase and is provided to WooCommerce developers for testing, feedback and contributing to the source code.
Important: Subscribe All The Things requires WooCommerce Subscriptions v2.0+.
