Overrding woocommerce templates in theme folder

Woocommerce is definately a perfect plugin for WordPress to use as e-commerce solution. it have lot of space of ability to extend and modify its features to use for our purpose.

One of its great feature is overriding its templates, this features works in the same way like WordPress child themes work. In the same way like WordPress tempalte engine Woocommerce look for a file in “your-theme/woocommerce/template-name”¬†first, if file exist then it will use that file as overrided template. else in the case it will use original Woocommerce tempales folder files.

This great feature saves your changes to a overided folder in your theme, whenever plugin upgrades your changes will not be lost.

lets take a example, you want to modify a file order-details.php in order tempate folder:

wp-content\plugins\woocommerce\templates\order\order-details.php

Now make a directory in your theme folder named “woocommerce” and copy this file to:

wp-content\themes\your-theme\woocommerce\order\order-details.php

and make your changes. at updgrade time your changes will remain saved in that folder. in the same way your can make changes to all templates in woocommerce folder.
