WooCommerce Template Hooks

Bricks 1.7 introduces a new do_action dynamic tag, which is designed to address the majority of compatibility issues between Bricks and third-party WooCommerce plugins. This new dynamic tag not only solves these compatibility issues but also enhances the flexibility of design by allowing users to place hooks anywhere they desire.

This article will guide you through the templates that need to be updated with the new do_action dynamic tag, though this step is optional if your Bricks-built WooCommerce website is already functioning properly.

Please note that when using the do_action dynamic tag with the specified hooks, Bricks will automatically remove certain native WooCommerce actions to prevent duplicate content.

As an example, consider using {do_action:woocommerce_after_shop_loop_item_title} dynamic tag in Bricks. This tag will automatically remove the woocommerce_template_loop_rating and woocommerce_template_loop_price actions. The reason for this is because the Product price and Product rating elements will be used to output the information in the desired location. At the same time, other plugins or codes will still be able to successfully hook onto the dynamic tag.
